Summer Must Haves

Hello, hello, and happy Friday-eve, everyone! ✨ Ahh, I hope you all enjoyed the Summer Solstice this week, especially as the toasty temps are hitting hard already! Like HEY, what’s up, hello, summer! 🌞🌞🌞

Along with welcoming the change in season, I did my typical wardrobe shopping binge (I say binge but I seriously only jump on the deals. I mean you have to)! A new season is the reason for new clothes πŸ’πŸ» right, ladies?!

A couple of my faves so far have been this short sleeve cozy tee in oatmeal from A&F! 

It hits right at the waist, so not too long and not too short. This warm oatmeal shade is truly neutral so it can be paired with nearly every color and pattern! It’s also a prime staple piece. 🌸 

While it’s a super casual top that’s seriously so cozy, I jazzed it up for the office with a triple strand of pearls – seriously, if you’re ever on the hunt for costume jewelry, scavenge estate sales or garage sales in your area – super eclectic and fun! 

The next buy was a pair of dv Bailey Slide sandals from the one and only, Target! πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘

I love these because they’re dressy but not over the top crazy. They have a kitty cork wedge to add just a bit of height, too! These bad boys look stellar with skinny black dress pants and destroyed denim jeans – so basically perfect for the office and the weekend. It’s a win win. 

What are some of your top summer buys for your wardrobe? Is there an essential you feel every girl should have?! πŸ‘—πŸ‘›

Summer-Fun Patterns 🌼🌴

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. πŸŽ€

What are some of your most loved summer patterns or pieces?

Until next time, Xx

My Vernacular

Oh my lanta! 1. It’s Monday! (that can be a good or bad thing)… 2. It’s been entirely too long since I’ve blogged… 3. I’m so excited to share the idea that came to me for this post! πŸ™†πŸ»πŸŒžπŸŒΈ

I’m always on the hunt for a fun, casual look that I can easily wear out for drinks/dinner in the evening! An easy combo is jeans and some type of black top, for me at least, πŸ˜‰ then doll it all up with some accessories!

While at work over the weekend at Vernacular (totally recommend for any + all of your fashion needs if you’re in the Columbus area!), I put together these fun and light Articles of Society boyfriend fit, ripped jeans with a girly black, English Factory, Lola top. The ruffles on the sleeveless top are so adorable and add a bit of flare to the outfit, along with the basic black pyramid Shosh earrings and Dalmatian-like Shapeshifter necklace. Throw on some sandals or a cute wedge and you’re set for any time of the day! πŸ’πŸ»πŸ’‹

Fashion tip for any outfit: it’s all about the subtle details! So glam it up however you like, ladies!

Modern T-shirt Dress

Happy Fri-yay, all! πŸ™†πŸ»πŸŒΈ We made it through another week– another week of warm, mid-Ohio weather. On the sunny side, this is the perfect time to pull out (or buy new) your unique summer dresses! 

One of my latest purchases is from my fav clothing boutique, here in Columbus, Vernacular! (I now work for Vernacular’s sister-store, Objects for the Home, and I highly recommend checking both out online– Vernacular even offers online ordering– so what could be better?!)

I was a tad skeptical about this dark nude dress and resembling that of a paper bag… But with the right jewelry (a bold statement necklace) and shoes, this show-stopper piece is complete. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’πŸ» I must say that is extremely comfy and flowy! I finished my look with Revlon Berry Haute lipstick- I cannot get enough of it! Next, I’d love to pair this dress with black strappy heels to add a bit of contrast.

The newlace rich with brown, turquose & teal adds a gorgeous pop to the whole outfit!

What is your fav type of summer dress– dress, casual?! Let’s hear!

Until next time, Xx
