Sweet Little Somethings

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!

Summer Must Haves

Hello, hello, and happy Friday-eve, everyone! โœจ 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! ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž

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 ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป 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. ๐ŸŒธ 

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! ๐Ÿ‘ก๐Ÿ‘ก

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?! ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘›

Fall Wish List

Hello bloggers!

Even though we’re still feeling the wrath of the muggy summer heat, autumn is right around the corner! It wasn’t until college that I learned to embrace and love fall and all it has to offer, from warm, oversized sweaters to fun leather booties and the most beloved, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.

I’ve compiled a collection of fall must-haves to inspire fun, chic outfits for the upcoming easy, breezy weather from places like Etsy, A&F, Macy’s, Express, H&M, Target, L.L. Bean and of course, Starbucks.

Fall Wish List
Fall Wish List

I love fall for one sole fashion reason: layers. Layers can be a blast– but do what looks best for you! Since I stand around 5’3″, long, oversized sweaters don’t always work for me… I look like I’m wearing a colored sack. However,ย I love pairing neutral sweaters with a top with a design/texture or pop of color. This year, I’m obsess with higher necklines, including scoops, to easily pair with nearly any sweater or leather jacket, and a statement necklace… or even a simple charm necklace. Side note: sometimes I wish the things I picture in my head to buy, would just magically appear in stores when I go shopping– wouldn’t that be heaven?!

So now, what are some of your favorite fall fashion pieces in your wardrobe?!

Until next time, Xx

Accessories, a girl’s best friend

AY YO! Monday is over and it’s a short-holiday week– we love it! I’m sorry I didn’t post this last week’s FashionFriday, I caught up on life and much needed sleep (haha!)– I feel like we can all relate to that, right?!

This post is based on something that a lot of girls may not think about. Accessories. Accessories can liven up any outfit. You can go from dull to glam just by adding a few bracelets/bangles, earrings and maybe a chunky ring- whatever you like. Accessories are a girl’s best friend.

I also believe accessories can tell a story or a lot about a person, such as where he/she has been or their interests, like favorite colors, style, designs, quotes… nearly everything under the sun!

Below is one of my fav accessories photos from Alex & Ani’s Instagram. Alex & Ani is an American retailer and producer of jewelry ranging from bangles, earrings, necklaces and rings that are all individually unique (see photo). They’re really luscious to group/pair together, expressing yourself in your own unique way.

FashionFriday: Stripes

HELLO, beauties! It’s the first weekend of June (finally!) and summer attire is out to play! This is a different type of FashionFriday post, but I’m excited! The theme I picked is stripes. This pattern can be difficult to play with for any and every body type- honestly, it all depends on the cut and size of the stripes and the material the piece is made of. 

In my last post, I mentioned a little boutique called Vernacular. Today, I decided to treat myself since I had my first pay from my new job, and bought this amazing black|white stripe dress! I fell in love with the light tan leather pockets on the front, and there’s a two-button detail on the left shoulder that adds a little fun detail. + A dress like this could be worn in nearly every season because while it is a bit thicker material, you could easily easily pair this with black hose and ankle booties or even basic flats! So versatile!

Now all I need is a pop of color with a statement necklace! What would you pair a dress like this with? I’d love to hear! 

Have a fab weekend. Until next time, Xx
