Cotton Candy Bliss and Unicorn Dreams

… that is what happy girls are made of.

Y’all. Okay. Where do I even begin?

My sweet Mama (Frickspicks. The Real Golden Girl. She’s amaze. Check her out immediately!) and I were headed out for lunch with some gal pals this past week and as I stood in the middle of my closet feeling rushed and stressed and sweaty-palmed… I thought to myself, “It’s summertime and the livin’s easy… what look says happy?!’

AND this is what I came up with…

This super-fun top screamed at me to try her on at my local Anthropologie the other day (don’t worry, I’ve linked it for you at the bottom of the post!) and it was love at first sight. There are googly eyes in some of the pouches. Yes, you heard that right. GOOGLY EYES, y’all. This top had the best effect on me. I felt happy, confident, sassy, and fun, ready-to-tackle-the-day/live-my-best-life kind of vibes. The moment I pulled this sweet thing over my head, it gave me zest and excitement and energy… LIFE y’all, it gave me LIFE. I knew I had to have it, wear it, and love it for many years to come. This top is an absolute TREAT and a TREASURE.

Because I was going with pretty much an all-white ensemble, I knew my accessories had to POP. These super fun (and COMFORTABLE) pink mules brought out the pinks in the top. I was feelin’ it. If I wanted to tone this down a bit, next time I’d go for a denim skinny jean with more of a neutral shoe.

My ombre shades were the perfect thing to pull this look together and I found you four similar pairs $30 AND UNDER — one pair was only $12 (all linked below)!

Sunnies (options here, here, here, and here), Top (here), Earrings (similar here), Bracelets (similar here and here), Jeans (here), Shoes (here), Straw Tote (options here and here)

Moral of the story: If something speaks to you, do it. An amaze blouse. Fierce pair of shoes. Cake. Hot air balloon ride. See where I’m going with this?

Life is short, but sweet for certain (Thanks, DMB for that lyric), so choose happiness, in whatever form that may be.

Cheers to a great weekend ahead!

Xoxo, Liza
