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‘›

Style Saturday: Work Outfit + What I Focus On

Happy Saturday, readers! Ok, was it just me or was this week nearly the longest week ever?! I guess the time change still has me like 😴…. BUT, it’s the weekend so time to enjoy some “you” time! πŸ’•βœ¨

So once the weekend zooms on by and Monday morning comes around, do you ever rack your mind of what to wear? I definitely do (actually, every day). I try to focus on a couple things when I put together a typica work outfit:

  • Solid, neutrals
  • Bold statement necklace

Cheetah pumps: Target; Tulle beige top: LC from Kohl’s; Black pants: NY&Co; Necklace & belt: Target

This is one of my latest favorites! I’ve always been obsessed with tulle – chic and just enough feminine. Black pants are an easy go-to, and I popped the outfit with cheetah print heels and a jeweled necklace. The cognac belt ties the neutrals and pattern all together. VoilΓ ! 

Simple details.

What is your typical work outfit? Do you focus on one piece or have a specific go-to?! I want to hear!!

Until next time, Xx

Style Saturday: Springing into Spring

Hello & happy Satur-YAY, readers! BLESS UP for a little relaxation & self-care after a long week. βœ¨πŸ’•

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. 

Vine Mixed Media Sweater T: Loft ; Striped Bell Sleeve Henley: Loft ; Gray fitted Blazer: EXPRESS
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. 🌸😍

PSA: Go to OldNavy.com & order your size. 10/10.

What pieces are you OBSESSED with for spring?! What pattern/color is a must for you?

Thanks for reading!

Until next time, Xx

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

Style Saturday: My Closet

Oh my lanta, it’s the freakin’ weekend! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰ BUT it’s 24 degrees, which calls for major sweater/blanket sweater weather. Can we actually survive 6 more weeks of this?! ❄️
So despite the chilly winter weather, my closet comes to the rescue! 

Staples are key.
I’m all about staying warm, comfy & fashionable. With that, I stick with staples. Staples & neutrals. Mixing the two together can easily make wild and different outfits that you can wear time & time again! And I’m all about the sweaters: long, short, bulky & light. 

Now, let’s talk blanket scarves. They can be worn as a scarf while outside or even as an accessory! And you can twist and fold them so many different ways. Like hello, LOVE!! Even with blanket scarves, I try to pick neutral colors that can be worn with all different outfits!

Ponchos are fab. They add warmth & style to any look. Black, grey & cream are my favorite colors: prime for pairing statement jewelry. ✨

Blanket scarves, ponchos & hats… OH MY!
Side note: this gorgeous wardrobe saved my wardrobe, curtsey of a dear friend of mine. I recommend a wardrobe if your tight on space or are looking for a statement piece to utilize. 

So what’s in your wardrobe?! What pieces do you stay warm with? 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
