Dark Denim Days










Outfit Details 

Jeans: Mossimo via Target / Top: Dynamite (similar crop top) / Bomber Jacket: Old Navy
Shoes: Lauren Conrad (love this style) / Bag: H&M (also love) / Sunglasses: Target
Watch: Daniel Wellington 


If I could create an everyday uniform for myself it would probably look something like this: dark distressed denim, a crop top, and a jacket layered on top.  Right now I'm into the whole sporty vibe.  It's simple and casual, but still has a chic twist. 

 When it comes to denim, I truthfully cannot get enough.  There are endless styles to choose from and so many different ways that they can be worn.  I remember not too long ago I went through a "no jean" phase.   But now, I want to wear them all the time.  Although my collection consists of both light and dark, I am definitely more partial to darker wash jeans, especially skinnies.  They're easier to dress up and work well for so many different occasions from a casual day with friends to lunch meetings to dinner and all things in between.  A pop of color or a fun print are always great ways to dress them up, although sometimes I prefer sticking to neutrals, like today. :)  Distressed denim always adds the right amount of edge to a look too, which is why it's probably my favorite style next to boyfriend jeans.

 Again, I was pleasantly surprised by Target's denim collection.  I actually got 3 different pairs and each were under $30!  That's a great deal in my book.  They've got a ton of different shades and styles to choose from too.  These and the other ones I wore here are definitely my favorites!

Have a great day loves<3

Fall Staples









Outfit Details 

Leggings: HUE (also love) / Blazer: Line & Dot (similar) / Top: Forever21 (similar
Shoes: Poshmark Find (similar style) / Necklace: Capwell / Bag: Philip Lim x Target (similar satchel
Watch: Daniel Wellington (here) / Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe (similar cat eye)


The printed pant & blazer combo again... couldn't resist!  I shot this look about two weeks ago and was saving it until we got a little closer to fall, but I couldn't wait.  (super impatient)  I wore this later in the day when it was starting to cool down a bit so this blazer was the perfect layering piece.  You guys probably know by now that I can't get enough of printed bottoms so these snakeskin leggings were right up my alley.  Black & blue has been a favorite combo of mine for awhile now, so I decided to stick with that color palette for this look.  I wanted to create more of a classic outfit and show that even though these are printed pants, you can still make them work for almost anything.  They really have become a new staple in my wardrobe.  If you're one who typically shys away from printed bottoms, I would start out with a darker print first.  As you experiment a little bit, start going with brighter/bolder prints and see what works best for you.  And if you get stuck with the styling, remember you can never go wrong with a blazer! ;)

Happiest of Tuesdays <3

Roses








Silly Outtake

Outfit Details 

Romper: Sugar Love (here) (similar) / Shoes: Missguided (similar style) / Bag: old, N/A
Earrings: L Mae  / Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe (similar cat eye)


Flowers always brighten up my day, so it's no surprise that I love wearing floral print.  There is just something about them that instantly makes me happy.  I think this is the first time that I'm wearing roses and how cute are they on this romper? I love that it's long sleeves too, making it great for a night out. Rompers make it so much easier to get dressed.  I'm definitely going to miss wearing them once the weather gets a bit colder.


 I'm feeling refreshed and in better spirits than last week.  It's amazing what a new cut & color can do for your mood!  I re did my layers and glazed my ombré so that everything blended together.  It's nice to have fresh and healthy hair again.  I also started working out last week.  I've been going running a lot lately, but I actually stepped back into the gym after a very long time.  It feels good to get back into a workout routine and definitely a great way to release some stress!  I've set some personal goals for myself and I am looking forward to achieving them over the next few months.  

Hope you have a great start to the new week!

Skinnies & Snakeskin









Outfit Details 

Crop Top: DressUp (similar crop top) / Skinny Pants: Charlotte Russe (similar grey skinnies
Shoes: Nine West (love these snakeskin pumps) / Necklace: Shiny Mix (here) / Bag: olivia + joy (also love)


It's all about the skinnies today!  I finally got a pair of dark grey ones that fit me like a glove.  I actually think that I prefer grey over black, just because it's a nice change.  I love that they have a dressed up feel, but are still somewhat casual.  I decided to pair them with this white crop top that I've worn a bunch of times already.  So many pieces in my closet have been on constant rotation lately.  I added a pop of print with these snakeskin pumps. (still my favorite shoe) I'm slowly starting to add a little bit of fall inspo into some of my looks right now, but making sure that they still have a summer feel to them.  Grey and neutral shades instantly make me think of the fall season and of course, so does a pop of red.  I'm pretty sure that red and dark plum shades will be my signature lip color over the next several months.

Cheers to the weekend!

Peachy


I wore this pretty dress to brunch in the meatpacking district this past Sunday with BarIII.  This was my little "Sexy & The City" shot. Surprisingly, I did not bust my behind on that cobblestone, although I was pretty close to it!  Cobblestone was definitely not made for heels.  By the way, if you live in the NYC area and are looking for someplace to have brunch, I highly recommend Revel.  Such great food and a cool atmosphere too.









Outfit Details 

Dress: BarIII (here) / Shoes: Zara (love this strappy sandal) / Tote: Tommy Hilfiger (love this tote
Sunglasses: Apt9 (here on sale) / Bracelet: Capwell (here


As much as I love bright colors, I also enjoy wearing neutrals and more toned down shades like this pretty peach.  I've been really drawn to A-line cuts lately too.  I just love the shape and they're fun to wear.  I'm all for a dress that I can twirl in. I thought that these strappy shoes would add a fun little element to the look and they seriously are extremely comfortable to walk in, despite the height.

My style has always been pretty simple, but lately I feel like I have been taking this simplicity thing to a whole other level.  To be honest, my mind has not been in blogging mode these past two weeks.  I've had some personal things going on and this time of year is typically the hardest for me.  When it comes to the internet, and social media more specifically, people only show you what they want you to see.  It may seem like someone has it all together or that things are "peachy" & perfect, but that isn't always the case.  Behind the smiles and perfectly placed product photos, there is usually a lot more going on beneath the surface.  We all have our own personal struggles.  I'm sure that I will snap out of it soon, but I just wanted to be honest and share this with you all today.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my posts each week. <3

Joggers







Outfit Details 

Crop top: Dynamite (also love) / Pants: Charlotte Russe (here) / Shoes: Zara (similar ankle strap version
Bag: Philip Lim x Target (similar version) / Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe (oversized cat eye version)


I never met a crop top I didn't like and the same goes for printed pants.  So for me, the two combined was a win-win.  This is actually my first pair of joggers.  I'm not really used to wearing this style, but I was looking forward to giving them a try since they're a bit different from what I typically wear.  The bottoms have an elastic band, but since I'm so short they sort of folded over on me creating more of a wide leg look. haha They're super comfortable though and a fun statement piece.  Keyword being fun!

  You can never go wrong with black and white (one of my favorite combos) so I kept it simple and added a dark lip for a little bit of fall inspiration.  This is a lip crayon from Sonia Kashuk.  I can't wear to start wearing darker lip shades again more frequently. 

Happy Tuesday loves <3
