Flower Umbrella: Graduation Gift from a church friend.
Leopard Heels: c/o Pink and Pepper.

Hello everyone!
Back when I graduated in June I had a lady from church give me the sweetest and most unexpected gift...an umbrella! Something I'd never thought I'd be 'needing' for college, but certainty something that I never realized I will need walking to and fro to my classes. I was totally taken aback by how beautiful and unique the design was and thought it was so special and kind of her to think of me...She's always been such a supporter of my dreams and I thought it would be perfect to use this in an outfit post. It's been sort of rainy the past few days here in Ohio, so it time to break it out :) I also haven't worn this cape in a super long time! Gosh, I've forgotten how much I've missed it...

I've also owned a pair of worn down and tattered leopard flats from target for years, but never a pair of leopard heels. I'm always too scared to buy colorful/bold shoes because I don't want to not wear them. I'm so thankful though I got to try out a pair of Pink and Pepper heels in a sassy leopard print. They're cute, comfy, and versatile. What more can I ask for?

Since my dad is out of town my mom, grandma, sister, and I went out to eat and then out dessert tonight. Girl's night! I got red velvet cake for dessert and it was beyond delicious...red velvet cures all sadness!

I'll be working a lot for the next few days so I'm not sure how much I'll be popping in and out of here. I just wanted to say thank you as always for all of the sweet things you all say and for supporting me! I'm still working on replying back to emails, and I'm going to try and make it a new goal of mine to take at least five minutes everyday to do some commenting...Commenting on other blogs is such a little, but sincere, way of showing you care about a person and I care so much about all ya'll!

With much love, Lauren.

Love this outfit. It makes me long for fall which I want want to do yet. Summer is slipping by so fast it seems. And the umbrella is awesome. What a cool and unique graduation gift.

What a gorgeous cape! I love it. ♥

And those shoes are lovely, too! I just bought a similar gold sparkly pair from Target. I love thick heels - so much easier to walk in than the pencil thin ones that used to be in style!

You sound like you're feeling better - I'm so glad!

Lauren,

I am happy to see all of your positive thoughts in this post. And when you radiate positivity, you look lovely no matter what your wearing (or the weather!). BTW- those shoes are killer- I own a pair myself and feel fierce every time I put them on!

Remember- nothing bad is going to happened because you never thought it would....(the power of positive thinking).
