  15. I adore finding outfit inspiration through pinterest. Your take on it is gorgeous. :-)

  16. Dang, I LOVE denim jackets! I love how they make a dress look so casual but still cute and put together :) I need to get back on my Pinterest account for some outfit inspiration - I've been sadly neglecting Pinterest and finding myself's time!

    I'm a huge ice cream lover, too! I need to start working out more/harder to compensate for my love of ice cream, or I'll be in trouble, haha!

  17. I really like the denim jacket with your flirty dress. That ice cream cake looks amazingly delicious!!

  18. It's great when you can throw on a dress, denim jacket and heels and call it a day. Easiest most pulled together outfit ever!

  19. Very nice list! I love the DQ too!! I just wished that I had one a little closer to me. In fact I'm not even sure there is one on this island. Oh well, I get my fill in the summer on the mainland.

  20. Who doesn't love DQ Blizzards!! My fave is the snickers flavor, yum! Speaking of nutty colors, I love your dress, it's the perfect nudeish color- or nutty; hehe!

  21. That color is lovely on you! Dairyqueen blizzards are to-die-for. aaaaaaaaaaaah
