Outfit of the Day: Dreading The Summer Weather


No, I'm not 100% "dreading" the summer weather (although the humidity in New York is not my favorite thing in the world). The title more refers to my new hairstyle! It's not technically dreads, but they have that look. They're called Marley Twists, and they're inspired by Bob Marley's awesome hair. I watched a bunch of YouTube tutorials so I could do my hair on my own and save $150, and I'm happy with how they turned out. I figured it would be a good protective style for the summer so I don't have to deal with my hair not cooperating every time I step out the door. ootd

So I obviously had to go to Primark while I was in London last month, and I am so glad I did, because I got some really cute clothes that will definitely be filling this blog with outfit posts for the summer. I went to Primark first morning I arrived in London, so overjoyed to be back in my happy place (yes, a clothing store in London is my happy place and I'm aware that that's kind of sad) and I literally walked around the entire store and threw all that I could into a bag and then sat down and went through everything and put them into "yes," "no" and "maybe" piles.

Well, after having to downsize the choices to very few (since all I had brought with me was my backpack and no other luggage) I got my purchases and felt slightly unfulfilled. I knew I had to go back at least one more time before I left. So after my journey around Italy and Paris, I only had a short layover in London before my flight to Iceland, so I woke up incredibly early on the day of my flight, got to Primark at 8:15am, ran around the store to make any final purchases, bought the cheapest suitcase I could find, and then stuffed everything in it before I headed to the bus to the airport.

So now I have so many adorable summer options to pair with clothes I had purchased back here in America, and I'm ready to rock some cute OOTDs for the blog. So much thanks to my boyfriend, Levi, for thinking I'm pretty and taking these pictures of me and doing a great job.
