 It's become a summer thing to incorporate braids into my hair styles because I loathe having hair stick to my face! For this one I put 3 of my Bellami 22 inch wefts in (just for length) & I parted on the side and just grabbed a chunk of hair & made a messy fish tail braid and then I tugged at it to make it a little messier/puffier! :) (emily5 gets you $5 off your Bellami purchase!)

My phone case is here. My rings are here. My lipstick is a 'Soar' filled in with 'BilBao'. Wearing this amazing loose, long white tee & an old sweater but this one is on my radar! 
 Last week I ran out to Target early morning (to grab the shirt in the following photo!) and I snapped a photo of this shorts because I wear them SO much. They are so great- they are from F21 but are not available online and I went with my sister to find them in her town and they weren't available. However, here & here are two similar pairs. I paired the shorts with an oversized gray sweater... similar here & here.
 Target Kid's Purchase! John came home from work and goes "did you shop at Baby Gap today?" haha. My lips are 'Tesoro" by Stila -- a super great color!
 Ever since John and I began dating we have always spent the Fourth with my sister & her family. Sadly, John couldn't join us this year (he's on ICU so he is soooooo busy and comes home tired). John and my niece, Georgia Kelley who is 4 have a special bond. They've always loved being around each other but one of their 'traditions' is that they get up early and go to Krispy Kreme  & bring back donuts for everyone. GK allowed me the privilege of taking her to KK this time but in order to stand out I took her to get our nails painted, too! :) 
(Red is Monsooner or Later, my wallet, similar wallet, & sunglasses.)
  John & I went out to do fireworks with the other interns and matched (not intentionally). I stole the shirt from my sis but here's a similar style. My skirt is Gap (sold out online) & shoes here. (John's outfit is J.Crew Factory (here & here (on sale)... he loves their button downs because they come in slim & the shorts come in his favorite length.)

  This dress is here & I ordered a UK 10.
  John's White Coat Ceremony. My dress is from Eliza J Dresses and I am obsessed. My heels are here.

  17. Emily I ordered a size 10 in the missguided dress by following your link. I just want to make sure that's a uk size 10 and not a us size 10. I wasn't sure if on the missguidedus if they converted the sizes for the dress. I'm usually a 4/6 in us sizes. I hope I did the right thing!! Can you let me know? Please!!
