Hello lovely people.

Is it embarrassing that I'm currently listening to the Backstreet Boys Never Gone album while I'm writing this post? No. No it's not.

First, I'd like to give a shoutout to Tara Brooke for doing a job on my new hurrrrr. I actually got it done a couple weeks ago but haven't gotten a chance to post any outfit pics of it until now! I wanted to go lighter for the summer and make some new layers and she did JUST that. If you're in the Provo area and you're looking for an amazing hair wizard, hit her up! Make sure you tell her that Ariel sent you :)

Second, I knowwww this is the second outfit post in a row that I'm wearing this backpack but I can't help it if I'm obsessed. #sorrynotsorry

Anyway, now on to the main event.

As you guys know, Connor and I went to Lagoon, a local amusement park, for our 3-year anniversary. Today I'm sharing with you folks the outfit that I wore for that adventure! I of course had to dress for comfort so I went with a classic striped tee and denim shorts look. I got this striped tee from a daily deals site called Groopdealz (use the code ARIEL10 to get 10% off your purchase) and it's been my new favorite thing everrr. I even mentioned and talked a little bit about it in my Pinterest Haul video yesterday (which you can view HERE). The only thing I wish I substituted for something comfier are my Chuck Taylors. As trendy and cool as they are, they're not the most comfortable things in the world--I'm sure you guys know. However, how stoked are we for the newer, comfier line they're coming out with??

My last favorite detail about this outfit are of course these cute bracelets! These dainty little things are from an Etsy shop called I Am Jes and they sell different varieties of bracelets just like this! I have freakishly tiny wrists so wearing any sort of bracelets are basically impossible for me because they literally slip right off, but these bracelets have an adjustable slide closure so I can make them the perfect size! Also, how cool are the little skulls attached to them? I feel like I'm channeling my inner Aria Montgomery whenever I wear them.

Want your own set of these bracelets? Well today is your lucky day!
To share the love, I've partnered up with I Am Jes to give away

a set of these exact same turquoise bracelets!

Meaning we are going to be TWINSIES if you win ;)

Have I mentioned that a portion of the proceeds from every purchase you make on I Am Jes goes towards fighting animal cruelty? How cool is that? Check out more on Jes, the owner of the company, HERE!

Don't miss out on this opportunity to score a set of really cool accessories!

Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Hello beautiful people!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Can you believe July is coming to an end this week already? Like, where did you go Summer? As much as I love love looove Fall fashion, I'm not hating the need to bundle myself up every time I step outside the house. So for now, I'll just be soaking up all the sun I can get and swimming in every body of water I can find.

Sorry I'm short of words today! I've been spending most of my days lying on the couch with the swamp cooler on because of how hot it's been lately, so I don't really have anything exciting to report about my life, haha.

Cheers to another week!
