Lyrically Led

I was driving the other day, listening to one of the songs on my April playlist and a lyric instantly caught my attention. My thoughts started going off in my head about how sometimes lyrics, for me, sum up (or better explain) what I am thinking and feeling. In a way, they’re this validation from someone you likely have never met but feel so understood by. Some of you may just want me to jump right into this look and don't worry, I will (see below). But as you scroll through this post, here are a series of lyrics that represent what I have been vibing to this past month. Yes, you got that right. I am just going to insert lyric quotes within every shot. They do an impeccable explaining what makes my heart skip a beat, feel at home and overjoyed.

**And, if you are looking to add context and melody to every lyric, take a listen to the song ;)

Style Rundown

This satin slip midi skirt makes my style soul satisfied. ASOS just gets me. They truly get me - and my wallet. I find myself therapeutically scrolling through the iPhone app and favoriting anything that sparks my interest. All the style rage right now is satin dresses, tops, skirts - the list goes on! *See pic of Kylie Jenner #killingit at Coachella in a satin set this past Sunday* I knew I wasn’t going to hop on the trendy party bus unless I was sure I’d have some fun. And, this skirt had me sold.
