Cotton Candy Summer + Take a Deep Breath

Every year I look forward to Geneva Swedish Days downtown.. Most people get aggravated, annoyed and claustrophobic when being in large, noisy crowds or around too many kids and families. I love seeing so many happy people coming together, relaxing after work and enjoying the sun and music. Sometimes it just takes a few moments for your brain to chill out, open your mind and see that not everything has to be your way.

You don't need to get fed up if you're walking through a crowd. You'll get there in the end. You don't need to lose your cool standing in a long line, waiting for something you're not entitled for. Enjoy the space you're in, have fun with the people you're spending time with! Take a moment to let any pent up anger go and just enjoy the summer night. Learning how to be more easy-going and care-free when it comes to the smallest of things like that can set you free.

In today's post I'm sharing this super sweet, pastel look - perfect for summer days at the carnival. This top is new at Target this month. Although I couldn't find the exact top online, there are some SUPER cute similar ones here and here. I love these cold -shoulder tops, especially with the bow-tie detail on the sleeves. This top is super flattering for small chested girls (like me! oh ya!) and dinner dates when the good Lord knows you haven't been workin' on ya core this summer.

These shorts from Express are new this month as well - exact pair here. AND 40%! Yahoo! These mid-rise shorts are super comfy and are a bit more of a sturdier fabric, so they're great for more dressed-up events. 

These flats are carried on anymore but I found some similar pairs here and here. I love these ankle strap-type flats because they're super flattering, even if your feet are, like, a yard long like mine (ha!).

Let the little things go. Enjoy the space and place you're in with the people you love.
