What's In Your Easter Basket?

I don't usually celebrate Easter (except non-religiously when I was younger and it fell around the time of my birthday), but this year I decided to keep my mind off some stress and get creative with these little eggies.  You don't have to just stick with the coloring dye and paints.  I chose to step outside of the decorating kit box and grabbed simple markers and sharpies to make adorable and detailed designs.  My favorite is the little Despicable Me minion; it warms up my candy filled insides!  Okay, so the infinite love symbol is "inspired" by Brandy Melville, but whatever, I had fun drawing it.  Besides, I gotta represent my favorite store, right?  So this is how I spent my day, and for once, I don't mind that I didn't get to go Easter egg hunting like I used to back in the day.  This little basket is so me.  I guess that's why I was able to let loose and make pretty.  Ah, Spring, I love your vibes.

Free PINK NATION Bandeau

Although this laced bandeau is not bikini top material, it is definitely some sort of sexy.  It makes you feel sexy, that is.  I wore it by the shore because, what the heck, if it got splashed on I could just wash it anyway.  I had no intention on merely hiding it underneath barely sheer attire or loose tanks.  No, this bandeau is a beach top on its own and the hot pink graphic is super loud and beautifully contrasted against the almighty, always trendy black.  Believe it or not, this girly bandeau is FREE with any PINK purchase.  If you want to get the best deal, as I simply must, go for the cute panties so that you only pay around $10 for the underwear, bandeau, AND a secret rewards card which will grant you at least $10 to spend at Victoria's Secret (for a limited time only).  See how much you save?  Go for the free goodies when you have time, for nothing is more satisfying during shopping than feeling smart, wearing sexy, and saving bandeaux and bandeaux of bucks.

Violet Blouse

Springtime = sheer time.  We can feel the warm wind approaching, especially when we see and show more skin.  I don't know anyone who isn't pumped for the new season.  It can be any time of the year, though, and I will fall in love with every shade of purple, whether it be lilac, lavender, orchid, violet, fuchsia, magenta, or plum.  Since I'm in the process of augmenting more shirts and blouses in all sorts of pigments to my wardrobe, this top was at such a great extent of a must-have that I placed it above my Brandy Melville wishlist (which is quite a big deal).  This sheer violet halfway button up blouse is a bit of a darker shade in person than in my photos (it's closer to the store's image), but it shines through as so under the sun.  However, while you are wearing a necessary purple so pretty, the sun is not the sole source of radiance.  Roses are red, violets are blue, but gleaming the most, is the shade of you!

Americana Denim Cutoffs

Whether you're close to the beaches or just preparing for Spring & Summer, now's the time to begin scouting for some new and cute denim shorts.  Normally, I'm not one to advertise the American Flag on my shirts or what have you because I go for more unique designs and styles, but this pair pretty much meets smack in the middle between patriotism and extraordinary.  I unexpectedly stumbled upon these cutoffs on and was iffy on ordering them online due to sizing uncertainty.  Obviously it turned out okay--actually, more than okay--since the color, fit, appeal, and quality were perfection.   Even though I tend to shy away from revealing more of my thighs than necessary, I am not afraid to wear this as a high waisted piece.  If you live in the U.S. or have American pride, I more than recommend this denim essential.  The stars and stripes are calling your name, so go ahead and don't show them them off!!
