House Party Appreciation Post Part Deux!!

Now you know how I feel about house parties... I've said it before and I'll say it again... It's all about finding that balance. It's also about knowing what type of party you're going to and dressing for the occasion.
I learned that the hard way on April 28th... I think. My outfit was great for the outside party but had I known that we would be playing wiffleball, I probably would have dressed more comfortably. I probably would have skipped the boots lol! Thank God I had my hoodie because when we went to Coney Island afterward it was FREEZING!!

Beatles shirt- Urban Outfitters
Vest- Material Girl (Macy's)

Now on June 6th we went to a 21st birthday party so I decided to get a little dressier. I paired my new Jawbreaking sweatshirt with a black, beaded skirt! If you've never heard of Jawbreaking, you're really missing out!! I'm OBSESSED!!

I Sanctuary-ed so hard I twisted my ankle

On May 18th we hit Skate and Surf! Brianna and Corrine surprised me and bought my ticket! That meant that I had about 24hrs to throw an outfit together. I think I did a pretty good job for such short notice. I had been waiting to wear my 90s Kid fringe, crop tank that had just come in the mail so I wore that with a pair of blue high waisted shorts that I had just gotten. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life!! It was raining the entire day but it only added to the experience! They're is seriously nothing like dancing in the rain.I'm glad I had my hat in my bag though... lol. It's always an amazing time when I get to see Paradise Fears! They're such cool guys and amazing musicians and performers. I finally got Sam to write out lyrics for my future tattoo (sorry Mommy). Singing Sanctuary at the top of my lungs, as the sun set, in the rain was definitely the best moment of my life. I Sanctuary-ed so hard I twisted my ankle. I was able to meet other awesome bands like Forever the Sickest Kids and Mayday Parade! And after almost having to cause a scene I was able to fufill a dream and see FALL OUT BOY... I repeat, FALL OUT BOY perform live!! IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!!? So incredible!

Soooooooooooo we finally, FINALLY had our own Action Item house party!! It was legit one of the best days of my life! I'm so happy that I got to spend it with my best friends!!

So anyway... I knew from the start the look I was going for. I remember finding this Godfather (my favorite movie) muscle tee and I just pictured wearing it over a maxi dress with a flower crown... real boho right?? Well then the look kinda evolved. I swapped the flower crown for henna on my feet. Meanwhile, the shirt AND the dress sell out! WHY?? As I'm panicking my mom starts scrolling through the pages of Amazon and it happens... the skies open, I hear the angels singing and I find the PERECT outfit!! it screams me! When the guys got there, Dan called me Princess Jasmine for crying outloud!
