Hi there, HELLO! Happy Tuesday, readers! Let me just start off by gabbing about this absolutely gorgeous summer weather today – like all sun & cool breezes 😁🌞 that's what I'm talking about, Ohio!
I feel as though embroidery was HUGE when I was in grade school! I remember the "hip" embroidered, bootcut jeans and jean jackets like it was yesterday. Low & behold, embroidery is making a bold comeback!
My newest find is this jaw-dropping button down with gorgeous embroidered florals. The details in the stitches and the dainty bell sleeves flow so naturally. This top is so sweet. 🌸🌼 To top it off, you can find this at Target, babes!
My favorite part of this is the fact that the buttons are hidden with an over-layer – simple but adds a bit of class, & this blouse can be worn for business casual or out-&-about on a Saturday! I love dual-purpose pieces. & I LOVE the pattern underneath the flowers – mixing texture & colors. 😉
What "sweet little somethings" clothing piece are you over-the-moon about?! Feel free to share!
Special shoutout to one of my colleagues, Mai, for making me the adorable origami fashion pieces!
Happy (almost) Sunday, readers! Today was beyond gorgeous – bright blue skies, low humidity, 88 degrees and a gleaming sun. What more can you ask for?! 🌞
As this summer’s fashion trends have been rolling out, florals and bold colors have been HUGE! Now, don’t get me wrong, patterns and bold colors can undoubtedly be intimidating. The key to all things intimindation is confidence. If you dig the all-over, funky pattern, you rock it with confidence! Trust me, it will make every single outfit.
I found the most fun patterned Pixie pants and shorts from Old Navy recently.
I love these pants because you can mix a solid or a subtle pattern for the top to add a bit more sass & fun! The aloha flowers make me wish I were on vacation like no other. Also, I’m obsessed with Pixie pants in general – they’re always a perfect fit.
These coral palm tree printed shorts are more than perfect. They’re long but not too long, like “mom-long.” I paired these with a white tunic from Old Navy for a casual & chic summer look. These bad boys are my new favorite shorts. 🌴
No matter the color, no matter the pattern, always wear confidence. Life can’t be perfect, but your outfit can be. 🎀
What are some of your most loved summer patterns or pieces?
So now that it finally feels like spring has sprung, that means bright colors, dresses & light textiles! Today, I finally put away all the bulky sweaters & hung all zee fresh & vibrant colors in my wardrobe (granted, I will always have a bit of black for every season 😉). It’s so refreshing.
With this transition, I wanted to share with you all a couple of my favorite pieces & top picks for clothing shops:
Target. But really, Target is my top go-to for clothing. If you don’t already shop there, you need to very soon! They have some great steals, & Victoria Beckham just released her not-so-Posh line & it’s ahhh-maxing!
Loft. I mean cute & business/casual chic all in one?! HI, YES PLEASE. Plus, sign up for Loft emails – there’s usually a sale code included! 😉
Vernacular. A local clothing boutique that’s expanding to Texas and Atlanta. They have prime, hand-picked pieces for every season! You can also order online.
OK, so what are some of your favorite clothing shops or boutiques?! What are you rocking for spring?
Hello & happy Satur-YAY, readers! BLESS UP for a little relaxation & self-care after a long week. ✨💕
Despite the dropping temps here in Ohio, I for one am so ready for spring! I mean pastels, florals & patterns for days… all of my current wardrobe obsessions are definitely springing into spring…
I fell in love with this Vine Mixed Media Sweater T. It’s almost like a basic in the front with a party around back – HEEEYY! The sheer floral back is gathered, almost like a high peplum, & the navy shade is to die for.
Bonuses: it’s a high-low top – so hi, yes, perfect to tuck in in the front, & there’s baby pink hues in the florals. Navy & light pink together are gorg, always. 🌸
Next is this beautiful Henley top with bell sleeves, which are make a HUUGE comeback (yay)! The top’s textured pinstripes and buttons are paired perfectly, too. Plus, who doesn’t look good in baby blue?!
A gray blazer is a must. I wear this all year round & it’s definitely been one of my best wardrobe purchases. It’s the perfect staple to dress / sass-up any outfit!
OH MY LANTA! When I came across these fab floral pumps, I think my heart skipped a beat. So I went for the gold! Seldomely do you see wild, fun & colorfully patterned heels, & these can easily be a pop for any basic outfit. 🌸😍
What pieces are you OBSESSED with for spring?! What pattern/color is a must for you?
Happy Tuesday, readers! Ok, it has been entirely too long since my last post — no excuses & I hate it. On the sunny side, it seems as though spring is here & it’s here to stay! 🌞🌸
As you know, every season has its own fashion statement pieces. One of my favorites that I tried for the first time is a kimono. Paired with the right pieces, kimonos are so fun, adding a bit of movement, sheer & pattern! At the same time, some kimonos can feel like straight shaper robes because of their weight & length (especially if you’re short like me!). With that being said, if you’re going to wear one, wear it with confidence (+ a bit of lip color!).
I paired this black & white one with a bit of nude- tank & flats, along with light-washed, high-waisted denim & a skinny black belt. The pattern was just enough with the neutrals — not too overpowering.
What pieces are you “krazy” for?! Or what do you pair your kimono with? Let’s hear!
Happy Tuesday, readers! We’re almost half way through the week, it’s almost the start of a new, fresh month- what more could you ask for?!
Tonight’s post is inspired by a recent find at Kohl’s and themed, “fashion on a budget.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Kohl’s fan, but I’m an even bigger fan of discovering one-of-a-kind items that can go with a variety of other pieces at a reasonable price (under $30 for the top shown below). This fitted baby doll sweater top is light and so chic. I love the neutrals and blush colors mixed in with the floral- colorful while perfect for fall! The ruffles around the hem add a bit more pop of “girly!”
This LC Lauren Conrad top paired nicely with the grey/green jeans and Style&Co mocha leather booties- a fun “Falling for Fall” outfit!
Words of advice: never buy clothes just “to have”… You need to love the pieces, otherwise, 99% of the time they’ll sit in your closet, unworn. Buy items that can be worn with pieces you have- you’ll be happier with your purchases in the long-run! It’s also a phenomenal feeling when you find that perfect item at a discount… Makes it even more worth while.
Do you have a favorite patterned piece that you like to wear with different outfits!? Let me hear!
