High Waisted Shorts

I know I'm in the minority here, but I honestly can't wait for Fall already. Summer is probably my least favorite season, I hate being all hot and sticky, and really the only good part about summer is that you can go swimming. But I would gladly trade that for it to be Autumn. 

To be honest, I was never even looking forward to Summer! I mean, most of the time if you ask me what my favorite season is I'll say whatever season is coming next, but last spring my 'favorite season' jumped straight to Fall.

I can't wait to be able to wear the clothes that I like, warmer, autumnal clothing (as you can maybe see by the fact that I'm wearing a cardigan in the humid summer heat!). Autumn is my favorite season to dress for, I LOVE sweaters, scarves, tights and muted colors. And I just like the cold weather better too, which is kind of funny because I get cold pretty easily so you'd think I'd like the warmer months best!

everything thrifted or hand-me-down

I've actually been trying to challenge myself to buy/wear more colorful things lately since I can almost always in be found in dark colors, but I can't wait til Fall when that's socially acceptable! 

What's your favorite season?

Father's Day Ideas

Awhile ago I did a post on things to do with your mom on Mother's day, and I thought it would be only fair to do another post on things you can do with your dad! My daddy is amazing and deserves a super special day, and if your dad is anything like mine I bet you want to make his day amazing too. So, here are some ways you can do that!

1. Take him out to the ballgame...
...Take him out to the crowd... Okay, I'm done singing now. But seriously, going to a baseball game or his preferred sporting event would be a seriously fun way to spend the day! If you don't know the sport well I bet he would love to explain it to you and love that you're taking an interest! When I started showing an interest in baseball he was really happy and I was happy that we had something we could bond over. So if you do know the sport you two will have a great time talking about the game!

2. Make him food
It's no secret that guys like to eat. So for Fathers Day dinner make him something special, maybe something that you guys wouldn't normally have. He'll love it and you'll get to enjoy it too! It's a win-win situation!

3. Go go-carting
...or bowling, or paint-balling, or laser-tagging... You get the idea. My dad works really hard to provide for our family and I know he would love to just take a day and do something FUN! He doesn't get to just have fun that often and if your dad is at all the same way I think he'll love this idea too. Decide what to do based on what you know he'll enjoy- I'm sure you can think of something, you know your dad better than I do! Whatever it is, I bet it will be something you'll both enjoy, and you're daughterly duties will be fulfilled. Boom, there you go.

4. Take him clothes shopping
Guys don't get the opportunity to do this often, and instead of buying him something that you really have no idea whether he'll like or if it'll fit (just being real here) take him to a store and let him pick some things! Shopping is your expertise and he knows that and will probably be honored to be a part of that.
While this is true for every suggestion in this post, I feel the need to say for this one that not all dad's will like this idea, just use your judgement. Like I said, you know your dad better than I do. :)

5. Day trip
There are probably a ton of things in your area or within driving distance that you guys never really get the chance to see. Well, now is the time! Take a day and go somewhere where you don't know your way around, but google first so I have a few things in mind that you'd like to see. It'll basically be like a regular vacation just close to home. You and your dad will have TONS of fun walking around a new city and just spending time together.

I hope some of these ideas will help you to give your dad the best Father's Day ever!

Peter Pan Collar // Guest Post by Abbey

Hey guys! Today the fabulous blogger Abbey is guest posting. Miss Abbey is so sweet and I'm ecstatic to have her on my blog today! I hope you all enjoy her post and don't forget to go follow her blog! 


Hello, lovelies!

I'm Abbey, and today I have the pleasure of guest posting on Thrifty Toppings for Ashley! Lovely Ashley is one of my favorite style bloggers, and when she emailed me asking if I would guest post for her I was absolutely delighted. Thank you girly for this opportunity!

So today I'm showing you girls a new favorite outfit of mine, and it's a recent favorite simply because of the darling little details such as the peter pan collar! The name itself brings back memories of watching Walt Disney's Peter Pan as a little girl. Because when I wasn't watching The Little Mermaid or Cinderella, I was watching Peter Pan. What was your favorite Disney film growing up?

 I hope you darlings enjoyed! You can check out all the details of what I'm wearing right above, and check out my blog by clicking here and follow me on various social media! XOXO   

Road Trip Style

Summer is the time for road trips! I myself LOVE road trips and will always jump on the opportunity to go on one. Style is important to me but when it comes to road trips being comfortable is my main priority. But there are obviously ways to stay both comfy and cute, and this outfit is one of my favorites that complies with both of those!

Even though it's almost summer, I like to have a cozy sweater or jacket with me. I get cold really easily so it keeps me warm in the car, adds style, and I even sometimes use it as a pillow when I need.

Sunglasses are a must. Unless it's a cloudy day, the sun is going to be glaring at me the whole time. Plus, I'm probably bound to take a nap at some point during any given road trip; I slip these babies on and don't worry so much about people looking at me. Also they add style and cover up those sleepy eyes #nomakeup

This shirt is so comfortable! I got it at Plato's closet, and it's actually a men's shirt! hehe. I find it very difficult to find women's t-shirts that fit me right, and this men's shirt fits me like a glove! (And I prefer the oversized look anyway.)

These shorts from Ross are basically pajamas! They're perfect for a road trip because they are cute, stylish, and super comfortable!

When on a road trip or trip of any kind I think its a good idea to have a backpack or tote bag with you for all of your things. This backpack is a favorite of mine, it goes great with a lot of the things that I wear and adds a kind of grunge element to my outfits. Plus it holds all of my junk important items!

For road trips I don't really like to wear any jewelry. Jewelry isn't the most comfortable (and I know I'll be napping during the trip!). So, alternative third pieces would be bags, jackets, and sunglasses, all of which I'm wearing in this outfit. Tell me, what are some other accessories that you like to wear that are comfortable and functional for road trips? Do you have any fun trips planned for this Summer?
