Hey guys! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a good weekend? If you saw my Instagram post Friday you know that this post was supposed to go up Friday, but due to a personal matter it did not happen. I sometimes share a little about my personal life on here, but rarely anything having to do with my dating life. I recently had been dating someone for a couple of months and he broke up with me on Thursday completely out of the blue. (I just have to mention that it was in a TEXT message! That’s like the 21st century version of a Post-It! Hello Carrie Bradshaw!) Anyways….it was a complete shock to me and nothing that I saw coming, so you can imagine I was pretty upset. However, you really find out who your friends are when things like this happen. So Friday night ended up to be a little girl’s night in, complete with lots of wine and tons of laughs!

So how appropriate that this cute little top came into my life! You all know by now that I love a good off the shoulder number, as evidenced here and here, and this one is no exception. Ringing in at just $13, you can’t hardly not get it! Amiright?? I threw in a pop of turquoise in these earrings because turquoise is my number one color of the summer!

When life hands you lemons, I say to hell with the lemonade, unless it has vodka in it of course! 😉

Have a great week and I’ll be posting on Thursday this week instead of Wednesday, so be sure to pop on back here for a fun little post with some amazingly talented ladies! Until then….

As always, thanks for reading!

xoxo, Hillary

  • You have the best attitude Hillary! So sorry sorry about the text message but you wouldn’t want to be with an asshole like that anyway. I immediately thought of SATC when you said that. On to your adorable look! I love this top and can’t believe it’s $13! Perfect summer look in my book. Have a great week and I know you will find your Mr. Big in the near future. XO


    • Aww, you’re so sweet, babe! Yes, in the long run it will be better, but it was such a shock. Haha we need to have a SATC night sometime! I miss that show and can’t believe how long it’s been since it was on the air! Thanks love! xx
