Hello everyone! 
So remember a few weeks back when I lost my favorite hat when I fell in the river? Well, this is proof I have thee best friends ever at school. Even though it wasn't her fault (but my own), Erin felt bad that I fell in the river and lost my hat, so she bought me a new, look-alike one! Oh my goodness, who does that?! Erin, if you're reading this you're the best. Seriously.

Things have been going well over here in little Ohio. I applied for a second job today that I'm not sure yet if I want to get or not. I love my job at Aero but I'm simply just not getting the hours I need to make money this summer. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. Today was the sweetest because I volunteered in my sister's third grade classroom and got to walk with them to the local ice cream stand. Sometimes I can't believe she's nearly ten because I remember holding her for the first time in China when she was just a baby. I mean, I know I'm growing and getting older but why does she have to, too?! Yesterday she had me put a full face of makeup on her and curl her hair (which is amazing because she's the kind of kid who makes farting noises with her armpits and won't wear a dress). Look at this little monster I'm creating! ♥

Hope you all are well, too!

With much love, Lauren.

P.S. If you'd fancy you can take a gander at my online store!  x

I just love the color of your dress :) And I'm super jealous of that necklace! So cute that you did your sister's hair and makeup--you should have taken a picture!

That dress is just absolutely amazing! I really love the color!

Good luck finding a second job! I worked a second job after freshman year too - it does stink sometimes, but you are right, you got to do what you go to do.

And yay for a new hat! What a great friend!

xoxo,
Laura

I looove this color on you, and how sweet of your friend to get you a new hat! I love the back of the dress, too. What kind of job are you applying to? It can be really hard to weigh a job you love against something that would make more money... my day job right now would definitely not pay the bills if I were living on my own (and as it is, most of it goes to shopping..... ahem), but I really enjoy my job most of the time. I'm sure I'd probably make more money in a food service job, but I wouldn't be as happy. But you're still in college, and I think if I had it to do over, I'd choose to make as much money as I could over my summer breaks. So I hope everything works out!

This is definitely one of my favourite dresses you have worn. I love lace anything!

Good luck with the 2nd job! I am in the same boat, haha.

Awwww. that's so nice of Erin. I saw one that I thought would suit you but didn't think it was wise to ship it to America!x

Hooray for a new lookalike hat! It's so cute with this simple summery outfit. I love the unique color of this dress and those perfect woven flats.

I bet you were the coolest big sister ever to help her class out like that.
I think this color looks great with your skintone. How nice!
