You know what time it is. Okay maybe you don't. But anyways, it's Shark Week time!

Summer's most famous week kicked off last night on the Discovery Channel. To celebrate why not try out this fun cap featuring none other than the elegant shark itself?

This hat's great pale mint color is perfect for summer and the embroidered shark is just the right size. This combo makes for just the right amount of kitsch.

The cap's easy, classic baseball style makes it incredibly simple to mix into your summer wardrobe. Toss it on with your fave white tee, jeans, and converse and you're ready to go.

Must Have of the Week: Gold iPod Shuffle

This week's must have isn't a piece of clothing or a pair of shoes. Nope! It's this little guy. 

About a week ago, after days of contemplating, I made the decision to purchase a gold iPod shuffle from the Apple store for $49, an item that many probably haven't given a thought for years, since purchasing their multi-functional phones. 

With a smart phone that can hold thousands of songs, why would someone need this itsy-bitsy music player? Let me tell you. 

Soon, I will be traveling with my school to Europe and I wanted a device other than my phone to play music on, as not to exhaust my phone's battery. At the same time, I didn't want to spend the amount of money that it would cost to buy a brand new phone on something I might not use everyday. To me, that just wasn't logical. 

After I made the decision that I was in the market for a new music playing device, I came to the conclusion that I would prefer it to be small, making it perfect for packing in my carry-on. These few factors led me to the iPod Shuffle.

Style wise, I chose the gold because I found it to be the most chic option. Engraving on the back was free so I chose to have "Carpe Diem MMXVI" imprinted as a way of memorializing my upcoming trip. 

All in all, the iPod shuffle might not be for everyone, but for the purpose of travel I think it will be great. I have only had it for a few days now and I'm already in love. Its functions are fairly basic but for a long flight it will be perfect for me.

Must Have of the Week: Madewell Denim Popover Shirt

It's safe to say I have Spring Fever. Here in Massachusetts we've been experiencing some unseasonably warm weather and it has made me all the more excited for the upcoming change of seasons.

This week's Must Have is a denim popover shirt from my new favorite shop, Madewell.

I first fell in love with the top online while I was checking out their sale items. Originally $78, now $49.99, this top is perfect for spring.

First off, the light wash denim looks crisp and light. Unlike darker denims, which can sometimes read more edgy, the top's color is perfect for a classic meets modern look.

Second, the cut of the top is great. Different than the other denim button-up shirts I own, the popover style of this shirt feels chic and breezy - ideal for springtime.

Love this top as much as I do? You can purchase one here!

Fashion Gone Minimal: What Happened to Over the Top Fashion à la Gaga, Minaj, and Perry?

Lady Gaga performs in a faux-meat replica of her infamous 2012 red carpet stunner.

Remember that time Lady Gaga wore an ensemble made entirely of raw meat to the 2012 Video Music Awards?

Me too.
