Late Birthday Post

My birthday was on July 17. These pictures are really late. I barely took any pictures that day, I was so caught up in enjoying the day I forgot. I had to do some self taken pictures.
I went out to eat with my family and Nathan on the day of my birthday at Maggiano's. I celebrated with my friends before hand and shopping with my mom before my birthday as well.

Nathan purposely sabotages my photos. All of them. Even on my birthday.

Birthday cake. Italian butter cream. Drooling.

Instagram photo. Outfit details: Topshop dress-purchased in Chicago, Jessica Simpson wedges, Urban Outfitters pyramid studded bracelet, blue bracelet one of the gifts from Nathan, Forever 21 bangle.

Creme Brulee at Maggiano's

Happy week!

Hey friends. I've always meant to invite people to check out my Instagram on my blog but I would always forget. I recently just had to leave a memo note on my phone. Yay for remembering! You can find me @annjelica on instagram. I put up pictures of all sorts of things like outfit posts, food, everyday things I come across, and my monster Venice, just a bunch of random pictures. I'm better at updating my instagram outfits then I am with my blog only cause its easier on my phone. I would love to follow anyone else if they have an Instagram as well. Just let me know!

If you do check out my Instagram you will find some pictures will be the same as my blog and some are different. I use a program called "Diptic" on my phone that allows me to change the pictures with borders and boxes. Hope you will check it out!

Chicago and a Pixie Cut

My family and I took a short vacation to Chicago in June, I am just now getting around to posting photos. Honestly I could never understand the obsession with the city. That is until I stepped foot in it. I love this city so much now! I want to go back every year! Ha!And also news I got a pixie cut. I have been contemplating it for more than a year now and I just had a spur of the moment and went ahead and got it all cut off. I really like it, I'm still just trying to get used to it. So are my parents, when I first showed my dad he literally didn't say anything and just walked away. We didn't speak for days. Now he likes it. Ha!

Zara sheer printed cat blouse, H&M shorts, Forever 21 cross body bag, Stylemint sunnies and Jessica Simpson sandals.

At the Sky deck Ledge at Willis/ Sears Tower. I was so scared!!! Its 1,730 feet tall! so Scary.
Wearing a Zara printed raccoon graphic top, Aerie bandeau, Abercrombie and Fitch navy shorts, Forever 21 cross body bag and again, my Gianni Bini boots.

My favorite building that I saw, The Chicago Tribune.

Underneath the Bean at Millennium Park

City of Chicago, I miss you.

Watching the news right now regarding the Colorado shooting. Its devastating what has happened, I cannot imagine what the city and the people involved are going through. Keep them in your prayers blogger friends. Lets take a time out today and see how blessed we are, even when we think we are not.
Have a good weekend.

Nautical Stripes

Found this dress at H&M, at first I wasn't too crazy about it until I put it on. And now I am obsessed with it. I just want to wear it every day! Belt, gold stacked bangles and necklace from Forever 21, purple glitter bangle from Betsy Johnson, sunglasses from Stylemint and shoes Jessica Simpson.

 Jazzed the picture above using Instagram filters. I don't remember which one. Just finished reading Rapture by Lauren Kate part of the Fallen series. If anyone hasn't heard of it yet, check it out! Especially if you are a fan of Twilight like me. Haha.
Happy Summer.

Pink jeans

I obviously am worse at updating my blog when I don't have school. I have been so busy sleeping, working out, leisure reading and busy with my summer school class.
I haven't really decided if I wanted to get into the colored jeans trend. Mainly because I didn't think it would last long. At least not till after summer. That is until I found these jeans at Zara. I think they are a nice color that isn't too "notice me" kind of thing. I'm wearing a grey blouse from the Gap, chambray top and necklace from Forever 21, and Jessica Simpson sandals.

 I have been reading "East of Eden" by Steinbeck and alot of other books so far. I should put up a blog post regarding my summer reading list. Getting back to every single comment, I promise!
Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer.

In a meadow of flowers. Every time I say those words I instantly want to write a poem. Haha. Beautiful flowers can always brighten anyones day. Wearing a Daniel Cremieux sweater, Victoria's Secret PINK black shorts, Gianni Bini leather brown boots and yellow Jessica Simpson cross body bag.

I never realize how short my shorts are till I see pictures like these.

Happy week friends. Hope everything is going the way you guys want.

Short Hair Finally

I have been out of internet for awhile now and now this new blogger stuff hasn't allowed me to update on my phone. I finally got the courage to cut my hair short! I was so nervous because I hate fixing my hair and rarely ever do. So naturally it just flips out and goes wavy and gets hard to manage. But its actually not that bad... for now at least. I feel that it makes me actually look my age now.
Took pictures around my school today for the first time.Wearing a Forever 21 sheer pink blouse, Hollister white tank underneath, American Eagle cut off denim shorts and again my brown boots.

A fun little squirrel to a great end to the day.

I just finished reading "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith. It is a really good book. Hope you guys will consider reading it.
Have a great week friends,
