Hello everyone

You all know I'm not much of a pants wearer but oh.my.gosh. These floral pants from Aeropostale had my heart instantly. Two things I never though I would say I love: Aeropostale pants. I can tell it's going to be a really big problem me working there because I am head over heels for all of there pieces. 

Just because it's a 'mainstream' brand doesn't mean you can't put your own personal style twist on the pieces. I love that I styled up these cropped jeggings retro, yet they would look so lovely styled classically with a blazer and heels, hard edge with a leather jacket and boots, and even bohemian with a flowy top and sandels. You know a piece is special when it can be styled for a variety of different styles and these pants are it. They're a part of the new summer line that just came out and I was so surprised at how inexpensive they were! I always thought Aero was pretty pricey but I ended up snagging these for $14. WHAT. 

Also, check out my new beauty of a bag! I've been carrying around the same old tattered Forever21 messenger bag all year so I am so excited to have a nice, sleek, and roomy bag for school these last few weeks. Hasn't left the crook of my arm since I got it

I just wanted to take a second to say how deeply saddened and troubled I am by the Boston Marathon bombing that occurred yesterday. One of my close friends here at Kent is from Massachutests close to Boston and it hit me incredibly hard for her. I was planning on visiting her this summer and going to Boston, and I can't get out of my mind the pictures I saw of all of the terror and madness. I pray deeply for my country and for all of humanity that love may overcome all of this tradgedy.

With much love, Lauren.  

P.S. I look like a big headed martian with my hair like this, LOLZ.

Gosh, those pants are adorable (not to mention the whole outfit)! You're right -- they could be paired with many different styles! A piece like that is always great to have around!

Also, what happened in Boston is absolutely terrible and my heart really goes out to those affected. I always hope that, one day, people won't have to experience such tragedies.

I'm actually very fond of this hair style on you! Such a fun throwback to the 60s. I also dig your new bag. I love getting new bags that can work interchangeably for school stuff. :)

OMGOSH your hair!! Every time I visit your blog I want to cut bangs in my hair so badly. This style is flawless and I really want to try it in my hair now. Those pants are quite wonderful and look darling with a flowy top! 60's is my favorite fashion era of late, so I'm totally digging this.

I love these pants, they are so awesome! And your hair? Fantastic.

And speaking as a Boston resident, the bombing was truly a tragedy, but seeing the love and compassion outpouring in this city is truly heartwarming. I only hope and pray that it continues and spreads to other cities!
