How you say my name +A completely normal outfit

I love my name. If that makes me a bad person so be it, but I really love my name. Since I love my name so much I have a slight pet peeve we need to discuss. People see “Alissa” and somehow it magically turns into……”MELISSA” “ALISA” “ALLISON” “ALICIA” “ANDREA” and “ELISA” Folks, my name is pretty simple. You DROP the M and E from Melissa and add an A. Easy? Now let’s all say it, Alissa (uhlissssssaaaa) My grandparents swore it was the strangest name they had ever seen and all of my birthday cards were always a different variation of my name. Always just *SO* close but not quite there. I always feel bad when I see a name that I’m pretty sure gets butchered a lot and I always try to go out of my way to pronounce it correctly. 

*rant over*  I swear I really am a nice person but I just had to get that off my chest. 


I felt completely uninspired when I put this outfit together. It was really hot out and even worse, muggy! I hate heat to begin with but then add humidity and general crappyness. So I threw out an outfit and went grocery shopping. I refuse to let you all think that I put together an outfit every single day. I don’t. I have days where putting on real pants is my only accomplishment.

Shirt: TJ Maxx ($12.99) / Shorts: Arizona Trading Company (thrifted in Lawrence $6.50)/ Shoes: American Eagle (via TJ Maxx, $18.99)/ Bracelets: random gifts 
Total cost for outfit: $25

 Not every thing I wear is worth photographing and this to me is a super simple outfit that anyone could wear. I’m not a blogger who doesn’t blog what she REALLY wears and so then people look at their blog and think, “Man! I wish I had the energy to dress up every day.” Nope, not true. I sit here blogging in my pajamas and it is only 6:37pm.
