Poisonous Spiders

Okay, only one spider, really. I was in a botanical garden on a field trip when I saw some random body of water I wanted to look at. Leading my friends, I walked right between two trees around three feet apart: nothing to worry about, right? Wrong. I walked directly into the web of a 3 or 4 inch long spider that happened to be black and yellow, which generally means poisonous. Chills. .
I got a bad picture of it, my camara wouldn't focus.
Arachnaphobia is healthy.
Here are some flower pictures that inspired my style to that summer transition of light, flowy things. I'm sorry, I don't have any outfit pictures because my camara is currently MIA. But when I do find it, I will post some simple DIYs that can spruce up or completely gut a piece that could improve the look of an outfit. (Doesn't it sound like I'm on a diet pill infomercial?)
The flowers in question:

Broken Nets

As my sister and I took pictures, I saw the coolest soccer net and I immediately began to pose with it. Well, slight malfunction. I accidently pulled the bars apart. No worries, I fixed it immediately and, in my defense, someone stole the screws that hold it together. So, not my fault. Also, I love this scarf with a passion. Observe:

I wore striped hot pink polo, a white mesh tank under, loose cargo shorts, and, of course, a floral scarf.

Little White Dress

Normally, I'm opposed to white things unless there's an element of black somewhere else in the outfit, but the dress dress below is jest so light and pretty, but not my normal style. In my defense, I wore it to church a few weeks ago now (I'm so behind in posting. . .). I have to give props (does anyone know what 'props' are?) to the designer, Lily Pulitzer. It looks fantastic. You might not be able to see it, but there is some beastly wonderful embroidery on the sides of it.
