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. 

Pick out your favorite: http://www.oldnavy.com/products/pixie-pants.jsp


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?

Style Saturday: Leisure Wear

It’s Satur-yay! 🌼🌞 the weather here is gorgeous. I feel like spring fever is upon us…

I love getting dressed up as much as the next girl, but when it comes to the weekend I go for casual and comfort. Leggings and neutrals are usually my go-tos! 


For all things comfort, I paired this light and chic Simply Vera jacket with LuLaRoe black leggings, grey GH Bass Oxfords and simple gold jewelry. + I feel like I blend in with nature – super neutrals, right?! πŸ˜‰ 


AND let me just talk about this Vera jacket. It sinches in the inside and seemlesslu accentuates my waiste which elongates zee legs. The large front pockets are perfect to throw things in and the hood. No words. Shoutouts to Kohls! ❀


Oh my. The Oxfords! I recommend these for anyone and everyone. They’re so cute paired with skinny dress pants (I.e. Old Navy’s Pixie pants), jeans and leggings; they’re so versatile and comfy. I chose they grey with a subtle but pop of color, peach bottoms – just adds some feminism! You can find your perfect pair on GH Bass online.

So what do you wear for your weekends when you’re out and about?! Do you go for comfort or a bit more dressy?

Thanks for reading & have a fab weekend!

Until next time, Xx

All About the Details

Happy Sunday, y’all! πŸ™†πŸ»πŸŒΈ 
I’m a few days behind with posting this… Actually a week. The oddly-chilly spring weather got the best of me last weekend, forcing me to not do much but brunch… But who can complain about that?! And now I’m soaking up some rays in Vegas while on a mini west-coast adventure with my best friend! 😎🌞

Alas, with spring comes the fun, adventurous weekends to show off your fav fashion pieces + accessories! The most important aspect of any outfit to consider are the details. The details add flare, style and personality, contributing to the “togeherness” of the outfit itself. In a similar fashion, the same type of attention to detail in life activities applies to fashion. 

A few details I want to highlight are the classic but ever-so-lavish statement necklace (Target) and strappy, camel heeled wedges (Francescia’s), paired fabulous light-washed, rolled-up jeans (Hollister) and a staple, solid-colored sweater (Old Navy; actually, the sleeves and back side are more of a light caramel color!). I love how the brown shades seamlessly tie together, with a denim divide and pop of color with the necklace!

This is a fun and chic outfit nearly any casual event, like branching or window-shopping in a local neighborhood. What are a few of your favorite fashion details?! Let’s hear them!
Until next time, Xx

A Weekender OOTD

Ahh, these past few weeks have been loco: traveling, work and my annual winter cold… I’m so excited to be feeling better and back at blogging. πŸ˜‰
Shabby-chic rips, subtle textures and leopard print flats– what more could you ask for?!
 

Out-n-about weekender outfit
  
Lush
 This casual weekend outfit is perfected with skinny ripped jeans (Hollister Co), cream sweater that has ever-so-mini cream dots (ELLE at Kohl’s), black boyfriend jean jacket (Hollister) and leopard flats (Target). Of course, a girl always has to accessorize! I added a fun Kate Spade bow bracelet with two of my favorite Alex & Ani bracelets.
I love the drastic mesh of ligh destroyed jeans with a slate black! The shades add a bit of edge to the look, while the dreamy cream sweater and flats add a bit of class.

What is your go-to weekender outfit?! Let’s hear!

Until next time, Xx

Thanksgiving Chic

Happy Thanksgiving, bloggers!

After we all indulged in heeping amounts of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pie, we all have so much to be thankful for– the list is endless. 

I wanted to share my casual, chic Thanksgiving look from the day. I’ve recently become obsessed with dark teal! No the past I’ve been skeptical about sporting green-ish hues because of my hair color, but the dark teal is subtle. I paired this light Bar III dress too with dark jeans and classic navy flats that add a hint of sparkle with the accents, along with a neutral floral statement necklace to finish the look. ; )

Gobble, gobble attire!
 
What was your Thanksgiving Day look?!

Until next time, Xx
