Hey Loves!

Summer is almost here! …Or so I’m wishing! Took these photos with my gal-pal Aly out at Waterworks park here in Iowa yesterday and it looks like a great day by the photos but it was really freezing out at a high of 38 degrees with wind! & did I mention it’s snowing here today? Crazy, I know..but anything for an amazing photo!

I’ve been recently getting back into modeling so coming up you will see a lot of professional photos Aly has taken of me (: I’m super excited & I hope you all love them too!

(You can check out more of Aly’s photography @ her website : http://www.alycarroll.com or on Facebook @ Aly Carroll Photography)

Now lets talk about my outfit : It’s perfect for a spring to summer switch, jeans and a light airy top will keep your comfortable but still cute. the earrings are fun and give this simple look something else and to make it your own you can add more accessories like I did with the hat. I’m in love with flouncey hats like this, I can imagine wearing it all summer to be honest.

Anywhoooo, I’ve got to get ready for work. I’m sure on this dreary day tons of people will be wanting coffee from starbucks….not. haha well, who knows but I will keep you updated with some more photos soon!

Lots of love,

Carly jane

Definitely Something Else.

Hey There Loves!

Semi-beautiful day here in Iowa, in the high 50’s! You know I couldn’t resist taking a few outfit photos and getting outside, with a cool breeze I thought shorts would be fun and paired with one of my favorite tee’s and light cardigan..it’s the perfect outfit (:

I actually made these shorts last summer! bought them originally in the yellow and bleached them vertically and turned them yellow and white, half and half. I also added some studs for some extra texture.

Definitely something different when you see this outfit but, honestly thats what I’m all about. Be yourself.

I hope everyone is having a great wednesday! It’s the middle of the week people, two more day until the weekend! & it can’t come soon enough..this weekend is supposed to be in the high 70’s holllla!!
I also happen to have Saturday and Sunday off from work so I will be taking full advantage of this beautiful weekend to comeeee.

Check back for more photos (:

Love,

-Finally a beautiful day here in Iowa, lately it’s been cold, wet and rainy but…today! The clouds are so fluffy and amazing, which only means an awesome sunset tonight (:

Thought a little animal print was perfect for this lovely Friday afternoon! I paired my animal print dress with neutrals of gray, black and tan.

(I can’t resist my neutrals with any outfit) or (my gray hat)

Soooo, things have actually been going great for me. Friends, boys and life all seem to be playing in my favor and I can’t complain. How about ya’ll?

This weekend should be amaze-balls too! So stokedddd.

Yesterday was so beautiful outside, spent some time out at Maffitt lake with Mary (: Seriously, my favorite place in Iowa! The trees here are what makes this place so special.

We thought it would be fun to get a photo of our eye’s too!

-Though I will add i never thought I had green in my eyes like my mother, but I now know this is true i do (:

Eyes are another one of my favorite things on people!

Anywhooooo, Happy Easter All! Just spent some time with the family, had a delicious brunch and conversation..lets not forget mimosa’s!! It was a good day.

Now, just hanging out listening to some Lana Del Rey. Love her voice and her song Radio.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday All!

Black Beauties.

Today has been such a beautiful day!

Anna and I thought it would be fun to take a drive down some of the gravel roads near our house this afternoon. It was a lovely temp. of 77 degrees here, living in Iowa in the middle of august corn fields are all around and bound to be a great photo opportunity!

 On our journey we stopped and took some photos (:

Wow! I’m in love with the way these photos turned out (: Anna’s dress fits her so perfectly and I can’t get enough of the lace. Funny how this used to be our mothers dress from back in her day and today it is still in style!

Anna used a necklace as a belt for a fun new twist & I added the skull necklace for more of an edgy vibe. Both can help lift up any dress or outfit!

(Both of our dresses are vintage)

Hope you’ve all had a great Monday!

Love,

It was such a beautiful day too! The market was full of people, got some tasty tomatoes and carrots. I also got my favorite cherry danish, every Saturday I must treat myself to one! Next weekend I’ll get a photo to share with you all of its tastiness (:

My best friend Mary was in town visiting until early this morning, when she went back to Tennessee. I’m definitely going to miss her! I’ll be posting photos of her and Anna and myself soon! This was such a great weekend, definitely something I needed.

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend too!

Anna and I spent the day at two of our favorite spots. Greenwood park this morning and Maffitt lake this afternoon. It’s such a perfect day! fluffy clouds, hot with a cool breeze. Just so peaceful and beautiful, I’m really in love with mother nature (:

I hope everyone has had a great weekend! I spent most of mine inside at work but today was a nice change (: I’m glad to have tomorrow off too. Will probably spend the rest of my day relaxing at home, maybe take a nap with my cat Mogli or do some drawing. I’ve been working on a new drawing, keep your eyes open!

Well…happy sunday.

Nature Is Calling..

JULY 34

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun, I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.

JULY 35

Friends are flowers in life’s garden.

JULY 37

Every time I plant a seed, He say kill it before it grow, he say kill it before they grow.

JULY 33

The more I see the less I know for sure.

JULY 36

My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.
