I picked out what YOU are wearing for Memorial Day. You’re Welcome.

If you are unemployed, the natural thing to want to do constantly is buy things.

I seriously believe that it is possible that I am genetically programmed to have that desire…. but regardless of my disposition to purchase:   I can’t.

With the holiday weekend rapidly approaching, it is difficult to ignore sale sign after sale signs.  I’ve tried to put together some patriotic outfits for the prep with her pockets lined with a bit more cash than me.

Here are some suggestions of appropriate attire to celebrate Memorial Day in:




I love the color and flattering bikini top style.  I purposely picked this lightweight tunic because it could double as a swimsuit cover up.  After all, Memorial day is a frequent date for when the pools open here (upnorth).  And of course the cutesy bow is the perfect dash of prep and class on such a casual holiday.




I don’t have the stomach to rock that crop top, but since I am “buying” for YOU I figure why not?  Stripes are so in this season.  The high-low skirt is so flowy and cute, also very trendy.  I would certainly wear that.  And how can you not use a new pair of gladiators? Especially white ones.. white sandals are made to be replaced.




The faded shorts could be a Pinterest DIY I’m sure.  Dress them up with this peplum style top, just be careful as you apply Rihanna’s newest lipstick (collab with MAC cosmetics), I’ve heard it stays on forever :*

So ladies, think of me when you get loads of compliments on Memorial Day.  It was impossible to write this post without Gwen Stefani’s “Rich Girl” going through my head…


Dressing casual when you only own dresses and pearls.

Well. That was the most frustrating event of the day, after finding out my mac mail isn’t compatible with my Canisius email. Yes. You read correctly, I am writing this from my new mac :). Overall, I love it. Obviously. But there has been frustration like the email, that frustration? WordPress wouldn’t let me post blogs. I restarted and its fine, but oh my God. I would probably have returned the computer over being forbid to blog. AH. Anyways, the reason I wanted to blog today was because I’m having a tough time packing. ME. With a phenomenal wardrobe. Why? Because HALF OF IT is packed for the move and college. And because where I’m going August 5-9th isn’t exactly calling for a ball gown or anything tremendously fashion forward. It’s Kingdom Bound. The Christian Rock Music Festival held in Darien Lake, NY. It’s huge. Yet, churchy events at a theme park aren’t exactly calling for decked out attire. And I’m opposed to gym shorts when in public surrounding that many possible cute guys. What is a girl to do? I don’t own in between clothes.. I just know I have a pro-life shirt that would probably go over well at such an event. Speaking of clothes though, I do own a bunch of new stuff. And yes, I bought the Mac so you’re probably like how the hell does that work out? ALLISON YOU HAVE NO JOB. But it does. Because I had a gift card and I am impulsive. Psh, I still have $500 for college.. Like that’s gonna last me 😦 But anyways I bought a ton of jewelry; pearl choker, pearl bracelets, rose quartz bracelets, silver bangles, & gold bangles, 2 scarves, a little black dress for the fall (quarter sleeve length and synchs at the waist), a turquoise and black polka dotted top, and jeans. For sixty dollars. I adore Forever 21 for that reason. The even better thing? The clothing all fits. Believe it or not (LOL) I am not your sample size modelesque girl, so this is kind of an accomplishment in itself. I am in between sizes so it’s tough to order online. What is also hard to order online? Shoes. Riding boots to be specific. I have one foot that is an 8.5 and another thats a 9. Like what the heck is a girl to do? Order boots. Impulsively. Duh. And that’s just what I did. I went online to Steve Madden and I found the most adorable boots for the fall :). And they fit too! I’m sooo excited, that I am going to show you them. YES! I can easily show you guys my purchases now that my laptop has a webcam (welcome to the 21st century I know).

Well, I almost had a heart attack. I’m not used to such an interactive touch pad.. I went back a page and practically lost my post.

I hope this isn’t to technologically advanced a computer for yours truly.
