OOTD: Ummm Grocery Shopping??

In all honesty, I'd like to say I did something moderately interesting today, so it'd constitute me having worn this outfit, butttt I didn't. I went grocery shopping, cleaned up around the house, and blogged. It wasn't a waste of a day by any means, but who the hell wears this to get groceries and then stay at home?!! Well, apparently me.
Regardless of my lameness, I'm still fond of this outfit because of how summery and urban it is. Yesterday I went shopping and bought a bunch of pieces at my local outlets and a few of the items are featured in this ensemble. I'll chalk sporting this outfit up to having been excited from recent purchases. That's it. Totally a good reason to have worn this to a grocery store...

Crop Top- PacSun
Maxi Skirt- JCPenney
Bag- Target (No longer available. Linked is a similar one)
Sandals- DSW (No longer available. Linked is a similar pair)
Pendant Necklace- PacSun ($11. No longer available.)
Earrings- Kohl's
Watch- Target
Our Last Night Bracelet- Swiped it from my friend who got it at a concert >:)
(to be fair, he doesn't even like the band sooo)
Rings- PacSun
Nail Polish- Essie (Peach Daiquiri)

If you have not heard of/listened to any music by Our Last Night, check 'em out! Below is a song off of their new album, "Oak Island."

Am I the only one who gets all dressed up with nowhere to go?

Copious Amounts of Social Media Links

These month long hiatuses I've been having better not become a habit.  Frankly, I don't understand why I do this to myself. It's not that I don't have plenty of ideas either (I've even made a schedule for the next 6 months)! This must simply be the result of having oodles of ambition and little motivation. Boo.
Though I've been neglecting my pride and joy of social medias, my other outlets have been getting plenty of love. Why is that? Because they are easier to access.  I refuse to download the Blogger app on my phone.  I want to properly sit down each time I'm about to make a post and have all my tools (Photoshop, albums, etc) available for use. For me, having the Blogger app would probably reduce the quality of my posts, and I do not want that. The downside to this resistance, though, is now I'm limiting my opportunities to connect with other bloggers via probably the most effective route.  Luckily there are other ways I can be active within the community!
With that I've moved on over to Twitter.  I regularly check Twitter to see what's going on; though I tend to keep to myself because I'm naturally a quiet person/listener type. If you would like blog updates, have any questions, comments, or just want to talk this is a great option to do so.
Now onto my favourite social media site (besides Blogger of course)- tumblr! Many moons ago, on December 31st of 2013 to be exact, I made a tumblr. Since then I've been obsessed. I am constantly updating my now TWO tumblrs many many many times a day.
I just love how a blog that an individual creates ends up being very unique to that person.  It's rather cool because you end up seeing so many people that are very similar to yourself.  I'd say my tumblrs are pretty different from this blog in the fact that they are very raw and personal.
This tumblr is my original one and holds a special place in my heart. I've invested a lot of time into building this one up and I'm honestly quite pleased with it. *tears up* the-mind-of-molly is as realistic and unembellished as it gets in regards to my thoughts, emotions, and just daily happenings.  I post and reblog anything I fancy or have some sort of connection to. It is the mind of me; good and bad alike.  If you're interested in getting to know me, check it out! Feel free to message me or leave me something in my ask box, too! I always read and respond to anything in my inbox!

This is my "picky," "snooty" blog! I created this tumblr because I wanted one like this, but didn't want my other one to be so selective.  After all, that wouldn't accurately represent my mind. Plus, I like all of the vibrant nature pictures circulating around tumblr too much to cut myself off from that simple viewing pleasure and chance to share them with my followers. Thus, not-a-very-popular-one was born... literally two days ago! The URL and title were actually inspired by the song I was listening to when I spontaneously decided to create it: "Ride" by Lana Del Rey.
not-a-very-popular-one is a black and white image only tumblr, so I'm very particular about what I post already, but even beyond that I hand pick and edit each image I post. I don't reblog from anyone because I want to keep it neat and clean (it's stupid, I know haha).  It includes more of my photography and lifestyle posts than my other one even.
I'll just conveniently place the audio for "Ride" below...
 (Is anyone else obsessing over Lana right now, too?)
You know what to do! I look forward to receiving your feedback! :)
Have a lovely day and stay fabulous!!


**NOTE: My tumblrs include pictures of my face! I mentioned in my FAQs how I am slowly becoming less private.  Well there ya go!! Thank you! :)
