gold is the new silver

 
I think it is totally acceptable to mix silver and gold these days. all you need is one piece that has both to tie it all together nicely. last season it was all about the statement necklace.  This season MK has started a revolution, the statement watch.

winter florals

so it snowed, a lot. not really a fan of the snow, but it happens quite often where I live so I have no choice but to make the best of it.  i can appreciate the crisp white canvas it paints and peacefulness to the air it brings. i also enjoy the idea of wearing pastel colors & flowers in the winter. it seems like an oxymoron, but somehow it suited my mood so well that day.

beach access

 the Outer Banks, North Carolina not only has awesomely beautiful beaches, but we have countless unforgettable memories "chillin' outerbanks."  & now we can always say we experienced living at the beach we love so much.  I'd even probably like to get married there one day. ONE DAY I said.  anyways,  I have recently graduated college and Erika is still hanging out in the burg, finishing up her last couple years in college, and were still super close, but this blog is just to guarantee it stays that way.  I'd like to say the both of us dream big. and I don't mean the kind of dreams you think about when your asleep, but i mean the ones that go down when your awake.  we take risks to get what we want and make those day dreams into realities, it's how we get the most out of life.  so here is what our "most" consists of. enjoy!(: 
just because your in a bathingsuit, doesn't mean you can't accessorize
the summer of 2010 was, by far, the best summer my sister and I have ever had.  the most obvious reason being that we got to live together at the beach we used to only use as a vacation destination, but secondly to that was that that island we loved so much was always a guaranteed damn good time.  I mean bars that have jungle gyms for adults and karaoke every night of the week... & another chance to live together, yes please!
the street we lived on in kill devil hills
 our last name, had to take a pic obvi. 
one of my best purchases that summer,  J.Crew rhino necklace from their neon line - love.
dresses, dresses, and more dresses
flower thoroughly enjoyed herself at the beach
 
 rocking my fly obx tee my talented sister cut up into a super hot dress and gave to me on my birthday. as well as the kitchen counter top that got lots of good use that summer ... 
the outerbanks has the best candy stores & thee best fudge
and a lot of good skim, if you enjoy that as much as my boyfriend does
          
         
 by the end of the summer we were making up our own bathingsuits.
its always fun to mix and match
