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‘›

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

[The always much anticipated] NYE Outfit

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas full of love, joy and mass amounts of Christmas music… and maybe a little wine. πŸ˜‰ This was the first year I decided to really go all out and decorate my room, outside of my college dorm room. Decor undoubtedly brings up my holiday spirits, especially with the lack of whiteΒ snow and the expected chilly or below-freezing weather here in Ohio. Here’s a little peek…

Hug & Kiss + a bit of holiday cheer

As the holiday season continues, a celebration that nearly everyone of all ages enjoys is New Year’s Eve; a time to celebrate where we are in life, be thankful for those we have to share life’s whirlwinds with, and let go of what no longer satisfies us–a time for new beginnings! Along with this cheerful and glitter-filled celebration comes the perfect outfit.

This year, tutu/tulle skirts have made a huge appearance in the fashion world. They’re all so unique, from beautiful colors and patterns to the various lengths. They’re one of my faves because you can easily pair a longer tutu with a basic text shirt or with a sheer top for going out with friends/date night! Like I always say: confidence is everything when it comes to fashion pieces–so rock it if you wear one! πŸ˜‰

+ As I get older, I find that it’s more about looking “classy-sexy”–it’s not always about showing the most skin. It’s about rocking a put-together and form-fitting outfit with confidence, ladies!

My overall outfit-thought-concept is an ivory tutu skirt from none other, A&F, an off-white three-quarters length sleeved sweater that has small dots in the fabric by ELLE from Kohl’s, black stockings and leopard print heels with an unidentified statement necklace to tie in the black tights.Β Here’s just a few photos from various Pinterest accounts that inspired my look as I head into 2016!

Do you have your NYE outfit planned?! What sparkles and unique pieces are you excited to show off?

Until next time, Xx
