Hi hi, readers! 🌞🍂 My favorite time of year is here, where the air smells of sea salt & maple everything, PSLs are all the rave & warm, dark florals are so in! 🌻
Aside from my obsessions with fall-scented candles & PSLs, I swoon over Target’s fall clothing pieces. Every. Single. Time! One of their newer lines, Who What Wear, is prime.
The bubble sleeves, the auburn florals & the pinstripes, SAY WHAAAT?! Yes. All in one. You need to check out this bubble sleeve shirt. No joke!
I love pieces that can easily transition from work to casual. Those are the pieces that build a staple wardrobe to can carry on for seasons. Pair this with a pair of navy pants and cognac heels, you’re set from 9-5. Switch it up for after hours with destroyed denim, a statement necklace & brown leather ankle booties.
Alright all! What is your favorite fall fashion piece/style/pattern? How do you rock it?! I’d love to hear! 🍁🌾
Good evening, readers! 🌛 This weekend's weather has been perfect so far – not too steamy, just enough sun yesterday & just the right amount of clouds & cool breezes today. Talk about early autumn weather!! 🍂🌾
With the slow change in weather comes a transition of wardrobe. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes this shift is tough to gauge because summer temps can linger into the late fall. Denim is a great staple for these fluctuations, & grey is an easy neutral for nearly any outfit!
I paired this off the shoulder, striped, flowy top with dark denim jeans & Merona pearl sandals. Add a statement necklace & in all set. Plus, how can any girl turn down pearls, even costume pearls??
A few things that I'm obsessing over: – the sleeves on this top are split all the way up & adds so much flare – the jeans are a high-low hem – perfect for shorter females like me so they get right at the ankle 😉 – the pearl sandals are Steve Madden dupes! – all these pieces (excluding the pearls) are from Target! Seriously, my holy grail. I found the pearl slide sandals on a blogger's Instagram, looked a bit more into them and found that Steve Madden sells them for nearly triple the price at Target. AND they're so comfy! I 12/10 recommend you check them out – also sold in black!
What is your favorite not-quite-but-almost-fall-weekend-look?! What pieces are staples as you start rolling out the new wardrobe? 🌻
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!
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 💁🏻 right, ladies?!
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!
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?! 👗👛
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.
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, 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?!
HAPPY FOURTH, BLOGGERS! And HAPPY 229th BIRTHDAY, AMERICA! Today’s a day we sometimes we forget why we celebrate- land of the free, because of the brave. What a great day!
I’ve really been slacking with my posts, especially FashionFriday. For now, I’ll blame it on the extended holiday weekend. 😉
But this week’s post I wanted to highlight nail colors! Whether you get your nails professionally done or not, nail color is something that should be fun to play and experiment with! Personally, I feel put-together when I have my nails all trimmed, buffed and painted- even if it’s simply with a nude polish. Bright colors can also add a fun pop of color to any outfit in the summer! Go wild; go crazy.
One of my biggest pet peeves is when I don’t have my toe nails painted; not too sure why, but I think toe nails look 10 times better when they’re painted and I’m wearing sandals or open toed shoes. Plus they’re little and super easy to paint! 😉
Along with nail color, my favorite nail polish brand is OPI. The color bottles last and don’t clump up, and the clear top coat is prime time! Below is a photo from OPI’s Instagram with a ton of really fun colors- oranges, creams and blues, Oh My!
What is your favorite nail polish color and brand? Do you have a go-to color?
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.
