Without your love..




Hey All!

It’s still winter here in Iowa, yet I find myself always wanting to pose in summer clothes (: What can I say, anything for a great photo!

Sorry I’ve been so m.i.a lately, I’m going to try and make a better effort to post regularly and keep ya’ll updated on my life. Though not much is new, I went blondeeee! I’m loving it, not completely blonde but it’s  close. I’ve been working lots and staying boy crazy as usual. Hoping for some warmer weather and more free time..dreams.

Feather, Follow Me…

Hello, Hello!!






It’s getting to be fall here in Iowa, though that hasn’t stopped me from showing a little skin here and there! It’s not winter yet (:

Just got my hair cut today, trying something new and got bangs (: I’ve had them once before, so it’s not really a new change. Also trying out my new skirt from Forever 21 & my new sheer tank from TJ Maxx. Also the shoes are borrowed from my sister in-law, seriously so perfect though! I’m in love this new lip color too, I just picked it up @ Walgreens earlier. I believe its called Black cherry.

Oh! and I don’t know if you all noticed, but I’m wearing my glasses! I actually hurt my eye a few days ago at work and have to wear my glasses for a while, semi unfortunate at times..for example rainy days, milk or syrup splashing in your face at work haha (I work at Starbucks) though, I really do love them at the same time, they give me a new look, a new change of pace..

I hope you’re all having a great Wednesday! It’s been a pretty fall day here but I’d say went by too fast! Gotta get ready for work tomorrow, will start posting again regularly so please be on the look out!

Lots of Love,

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,

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 (:

Animal Print Friday.





-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!

(My Brown Eye)

-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!

Maffitt Lake Loveee.

Hey Loves!

So a few weeks back my best friend came to visit me and anna. Mary is her name and she lives in Tennessee but is originally from here..Anyway, here are some of the photos we took one day out at Maffitt Lake (:


(Me, Anna and Mary)




Notice anything different!? I’m wearing my glasses (: I never wear them in photos but recently I had a change of heart and wore them..Anyway, I’m in love with this neon purple skirt! Its soooo perfect for any occasion and this dot top is too cute. I wore it another time with skinny jeans, white flats of some sort & a gray sweater for warmth.

I’m also in love with Anna’s coral ruffle top! Simple & Sweet (:

Some of these photos are kind of silly, I can’t help but laugh at a few of them too! The 3 of us have been friends for 5+ years and we’ve definitely been trough thick and thin. Mary’s visit was a great one for sure!

Here is one more photo I took of her while she was visiting that I absolutely love!


Hope you all have a great Thursday, I’m about to get ready and go to work and when I say work..I mean just stand around and pray a customer walks in haha

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!
