But there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues

And the Minnesota weather is what’s causing my summer blues! But it’s a good reason to start getting ready for fall, layering pieces, pulling out all of my scarves and jackets!

I love fall!

But summer is still here…

And it’s so easy to strike a pose in this dress, and have fun! That’s what it is! It’s my fun dress…

… which can be easily transformed into a fall outfit with the help of a scarf, a denim jacket and a pair of leggings:

Are you getting ready for fall? If so, how? Do tell!



PS. All of the above pictures were taken by me using my Samsung Galaxy camera. Sam couldn’t take them for me, because he was asleep! Thank God I have a tripod ๐Ÿ˜›


Marina Outfit of the Day

Here is to sailing, and having two days off in a row and to figuring out what I want to do with my life (more on that later ๐Ÿ™‚ )

We went sailing today, and since I am not a very good planner, I didn’t charge my phone, and didn’t take any pictures for you from the sail boat, it’s not like Sam would’ve let me bring the phone on the boat anyways.

But I got my outfit pictures for you, and the whole look cost me about $30. Let’s put it this way: the only thing that I bought that was brand new, were the jeans! Shoes came from Goodwill outlet, and the shirt came off of Freecycle (love that website!)



I also did a super easy make-up look, let me know if you want a tutorial on that ๐Ÿ™‚ I kid you not, the Clarisonic is working wonders, and I left the house wearing only a tinted moisturizer today! And eye make up of course!

Anyways, I hope you had a good weekend!
