Sparks Fly...





What I'm Wearing
Earrings: ALDO
Watch: Fossil
Lace Dress: F21 thrifted
Belt: (came with a different dress)
Oxford Flats: Bass
Handbag: Talbots

Talk about late... I wore this outfit on the Fourth...which turned out to be one of the best days of my summer. The entire day was just filled with fun in the sun, shopping, sparks flying, and lots of love. On the Fourth, I don't celebrate independence, I celebrate my family and loved ones. And I hope you all had a wonderful day with those who fit that category for you. :)

I went to see the fireworks for the first time in my life, and, I must say, it was frightening. I'm easily shaken by loud and unpredictable noises and I'm also not 100% comfortable in large crowds. However, I did enjoy them.

Off The Wall










What I'm Wearing
Earrings: ALDO
Necklace: Forever 21
Blouse: Old Navy
Pleated Maxi Skirt: CR

Ever since IFB's blog post about the outfit photo locations you could find anywhere, I've been on a mission to find at least one of each of them in Albany. So, when I was getting a ride home from a friend of mine and we drove by this wall, I was very excited that I could cross one place of that list.

Some of you may know, some of you may not, but, along with being a blogger, I am a poet. And, because of this, I find the symbolism in this image to be pretty, for lack of a more sufficient term, tough. I could decide weather the hand is holding a pen that is full of ink or a scalpel cutting through something and showing it's interior but, either way, I think there is so much more to this piece of artwork than meets the eye.

WWCLD - What "Wood" Chocolate Laced Do?








What I'm Wearing
Wooden Beaded Necklace: ALDO | Wooden Earrings: old
Wooden Bracelets: Shoedazzle, ALDO, & gifts | Wooden Ring: Charming Charlie's
Studded Draped Back Chiffon Tee: Charlotte Russe ($15)
Dotted Cropped Pants: H&M ($15)
Oxford Flats: Bass ($20)

WWCLD? What would Chocolate Laced do when pairing one of her favorite cropped pants with blouse that is going through a slight color-identity crisis?

Well, I would wear all wooden accessories!

Somebody tell me what the color of my blouse is! Because, to me, it resembles a washed out coral/peach but can almost be taken for cream. I was so confused by it while dressing up, I actually had no idea what to do with myself. Don't laugh at me. A detail as tiny as that is easily capable of driving me nuts, especially since color is so important to me when putting my outfits together.

At the time, I hadn't figured out what color it was, so I decided that wooden jewelry would suffice. I did spend the majority of my day thinking to myself how much I disliked my outfit, but I loved my accessories... so I guess I "wood" call that an even exchange. :)

Modern Day Wonder Woman (Well... I Try To Be)








What I'm Wearing
Necklace & Belt: Wet Seal
Earrings & Double Cuffs: diva.net.au
Sleeveless Cut-Out Back Blosue: H&M
Pleated Skirt: F21 (thrifted)
Colorblocked Bag: Tobi
White & Gold Sandals: Dolce Vita

It's more than just the double cuffs. I find that I try to bite off more than I can chew very often. With school, blogging, and many other things. Something in my mind tells me I can do it all, because I'm no ordinary woman. And only an ordinary woman would be unable to do more than her limit allows her. I want to exceed my limits... greatly. But it will not be easy. I will continue to be hard-working, determined, and, not to mention, fabulous all at the same time. I may not have actual super powers, but I will be great. (And you can, and should be, too!)
