Sunday Loungin'

I'm Wearing: Top: Brandy Melville via Pacsun // Shorts: Aerie // 

On the rare Sunday that I have the morning (or in this case whole day) off I like to wear things like this: an oversized sweater and a pair of cute shorts. These are both recent purchases and I'm smitten. I actually saw both of these on a shopping trip about a week ago when I was with a friend but I didn't bring any cash with me because I didn't want to buy anything so I mulled it over and went back on Friday to buy both of these pieces. I guess you could call it smart shopping! Also on days off I like to catch up on all the posts I've missed/skipped, what are your favorite blogs currently?

August Roundup

August was by far my favorite month this year and sadly enough if you only follow me on the blog you wouldn't have caught most of it since it was basically silent over here all month. August was packed to the brim with a tight schedule, some much needed family time, a weekend I'll always remember and I even decided to try something new (more on that later this week)!

Here's a roundup of everything that went down in August!
  • I got glasses! Wait, that sign over there isn't supposed to look like one big blob? Who knew! To the people who I've complained to (hey Cat, James, Jack and basically my whole family) I know y'all have glasses and I love them on you and I'm sorry if my constant complaints made you think otherwise. ♥
  • I had a fro-yo date with one of my favorite people
  • I went to a grad party and wore this (see more snaps here)
  • I bought my first hoodie in years!!

Honestly if you were to ask me to pick my favorite moment in August it would have to be the weekend where I was so busy that I couldn't fit you in if you begged. Despite that I still had fun, I tried new things and I know I'll always remember it.

I'm not as excited for fall as my fellow bloggers who are practically jumping up and down, waving their hands in the air waiting for all the leaves to fall off the trees. I want to cherish these last few summer days because in just a few weeks, what I thought to be busy now will be a walk in the park then.

Follow me on Instagram, I seem to have fallen back in love with it lately:  @JessDynarski


Fall Wishlist (#1)

Ahh, I know I went MIA last week but I've been picking up a few people's shifts at work so that leaves me with very little free time and so many things to do besides look stellar. Besides that I got my last school district calender ever, I'm a senior. HOLY GUACAMOLE! With the end of August and my first day of school quickly approaching I've been collecting some back to school wishlists and here is my current one.

Fall Wishlist (#1)

L-R Starting at top right (color indicates a must in my book): Cardigan // Quirky Kitty Purse // A Great Pair of Jeans // Key Necklace (check out the story behind them) // Transitional Booties // Map Scarf // Herschel Supply Co Backpack


Coral Flamingo

Coral Flamingo
What I'd Wear: Flamingo Tee: Sincerely Jules // Skirt: Nasty Gal // Shoes: Sole Society // Necklace: Bauble Bar // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Lipstick: YSL Rouge Volupte in #13

This what I'd wear outfit is really an outfit I'd love to wear. Lately I've been into pair a tee with something a bit fancier for a balanced look that's almost tomboyish (I could swap the heels for flats and ta-da)! My favorite piece in this whole outfit is the Rebecca Minkoff bag. I want one but I'm thinking of getting one in grey for back to school/fall time!

Thank you for reading. xx Jess


Copy Cat

I'm Wearing: Top: Sincerely Jules // Skirt: JOA // Shoes: DV Dolce Vita via TJ Maxx (similar // similar) // Lipstick: YSL Rouge Volupte in Pink in Paris #13  // Sunglasses: Target // Ring: BaubleBar  (See one more way I wore this shirt on my instagram here!)I've never been one to buy an outfit that a blogger is wearing because usually I only like one part of it. I'll like the dress but not what it's paired with, or I'll like the skirt but not the shirt. You know how these things go, right? But then I saw this outfit from everybody's favorite blogger (and if she's not your favorite well then I'm happily making a hyperbole) Blair of Atlantic-Pacific. She's possibly my favorite blogger of all time because her style is to die for. I love it. This is the exact top and skirt she is wearing in this post and the only things I don't have are the bag, shoes and sunnies but I used similar things I had on hand to make this a copy-cat look a lot like the original. Have you guys ever done this?

I'm back at dance this week because I'm performing in early September with a select group of girls at the Music is Art Festival and Fundraiser here in Buffalo. I'm excited. I've also got another performance at the beginning of August using my previously performed solo from this year's recital. I'm excited to be a part of all these things. My body on the other hand is not so fond of using all the muscles that haven't been properly used in almost a month. #dancerproblems

Thank you for reading, Jess!
