Hello, folks! It’s been forever since I’ve actually come on here with a post like this! Though I must admit, the break was very nice. I love my blog, but there are aspects of it that can be very overwhelming. But I am happy to be back, and already have my wheels turning for new content in the coming months. Fall is right around the corner, and it is my absolute favorite season to dress for, and the time of year when I feel most inspired, and honestly just more happy all around. I love my cute yellow top and white jeans in this post, but just thinking about wearing sweaters, boots, jackets, and cute hats gets me so giddy and excited!!!

What have you all been up to?? I can’t believe we are already on the last leg of summer. It feels like only yesterday that I was celebrating with all of you that school was over with for the year, and now I only have a month left before I’m back there again. Ugh, gross. But at least it’s my senior year! Woohoo!!!

August is going to be another very busy month for me, so I can’t promise that things with the blog are going to pick up their normal pace quite yet. I am going to Texas with my family and Juan to visit some of our family (fun fact, I was born in Texas), and then school also starts in August, so it is going to be another busy month where my schedule is going to be all out of whack. But I promise that after August, things will be in full swing! I hope you all have a great week ahead of you!!!

Hello!!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! My boyfriend, Juan, came to visit me this weekend and we had a great time together (like that’s anything new though *I say as I giggle and blush like a giddy school girl*). I worked most of the time that he was here, but we would rather get to see each other for a little bit than not at all!

Also another random thought, I found out last week that you can get your fries well-done at Chick-fil-A. I hate when I get fries from there and they are all soft and mushy. But when you get them well-done, they are guaranteed to be crisp! It’s amazing! To say that this newfound knowledge has changed my life wouldn’t exactly be a lie.

Okay, now onto the actual purpose of this post. These blog pictures turned out to be some of the best I’ve taken in a long time! I just love this outfit! It’s really stylish, but still so comfortable. I borrowed this top from my mom’s closet, and it’s currently on sale for over 40% off! Also, I know these jeans are really expensive (I got them through my job), but if you are looking for a great investment pair of jeans, these are amazingggg. They are so soft and comfortable, and the subtle rips throughout are the perfect touch. I love them!!!

I am wishing you all a great rest of your week! And if you try your Chick-fil-A fries well-done let me know!

Hey, pals! I hope you all have been doing well!! I am in a super good mood today because I checked the status of my passport this morning, and it is on its way to me!!!! I will give y’all a sort of brief background of the passport drama that I have been experiencing the past month or so.

For those of you that don’t know, my boyfriend, Juan, and his family are from Medellín, Colombia, and around the holidays, we made plans to make a trip there this summer with all of his family and I. I have never been out of the country before, so this trip is a huge deal to me! Not only because it will be my first trip out of the country, but because I can’t wait to see the country where the love of my life was born, and to be immersed in the culture that his family has welcomed me into with open arms ever since we started dating over four years ago.

Since I have never traveled out of the country, I have never had a passport, so I applied for my passport a little over a month and a half ago, giving me a little over 2.5 months to get it! Well apparently what I had always thought was my Texas birth certificate, was actually a Texas birth card, so basically just a short form birth certificate.  I got a letter in the mail from the passport agency telling me that they cannot use a birth card to issue a passport. So ever since I received that letter, I have spent the past 3.5 weeks scrambling around to get a copy of my birth certificate. Oh yeah, and crying too. Like a lot. I don’t handle stress well at all, and have always been a worrier.

But after finally getting my birth certificate (thanks to the help of my grandma!! Hi, Nonnie!!!), I checked my passport status today, and it is on the way to me!!! Thank the Lord!!! I feel so relieved and feel like I can actually be excited about the trip now! In fact, I’m so excited that I’ve already started planning my packing list! Keep in mind that the trip is over three weeks away lol.

Speaking of my packing list, this dress is on it! (Can I get a round of applause for that smooth subject transition??) It is so comfortable and flowy, which is why I want to take it with me to Colombia. It’s going to be really hot, so I am planning on packing a ton of dresses and shorts. I also plan on eating more than my fair share of arepas on the trip, so flowy dresses are a must.

I hope you are all having a great week!!! Do any of y’all have passport drama stories? Or is it just me who is gets stuck in these foolish situations?
