Coral Romper

by

Astr coral romper-8

I’m not usually one for matchy-matchy, but my friends at Traffic sent me these fun little fringe-y babes a few weeks ago and I had been waiting for the perfect outfit to style them with. While I felt like there were plenty of outfits I could style them into, I really wanted something different. They sat in their box, waiting patiently. I thought about wearing them with jeans. (cute) I thought about wearing them with denim cutoffs, (unexpected) and then I picked up this coral Astr romper at Nordstrom last week and when I got home realized… hello… they’re perfect together!

Now, the romper could also easily be paired with an amazing flat gladiator sandal, a cool cognac wedge, or even a Converse, if you throw a jean jacket over it. Really, there are a lot of options. Dress it up, dress it down. I love the chiffon and the pretty ruffle detail on the short. I also really like the back and how it has a little bit of a peek-a-boo effect.

I’m obsessed with these Karen Walker sunnies from Ditto. You may remember that I previously requested the same exact style, but in the mirrored frame. (And after returning them, ended up actually scooping up this dupe from Nordstrom for $12!) But I love the style SO much that I decided I really needed the Crazy Tortoise color way in my life. In case you’re unfamilar– Ditto is like Netflix for designer sunnies. $24 per month and you have unlimited access to the hottest sunnies out there right now.

Ruffle Sleeve Top + Jeans

by

Stripe ruffle sleeve top + jeans_-7

I am SO bummed that this top is sold out online for you guys! Hopefully you snagged it back when I posted this look and you got your first peek at it 😉 If you’re loving it and didn’t pick it up back then, never fear, I’m sure they still have it in-stores! I’ve seen it at my local Target, I’m sure you can easily find it at yours.

I’m a firm believe that if you’re GOING to wear jeans, at least keep the details interesting. A fun pair of shoes, a flirty top, there’s no reason why the look needs to be boring. NO BORING CLOTHES. That’s kind of my unofficial mantra, in case you haven’t noticed.

I’m definitely thinking I need to scoop up these sandals in black and taupe as well. They’re just SO GOOD. They really take any look to the next level, don’t they?

Monochromatic White

by

Monochromatic white outfit-2

Given the right cape, swapping one in for your old boring blazer can really take your outfit next-level. You may recall I was living for this navy cape in the winter months… it really gave my basic denim look a little edge, right? When spring rolled around, I felt like my closet was in need of a light white cape, and this one fit the bill.

While outfit planning, I found myself slightly bored with a denim look, and felt like the versatility of the blazer really lends itself to a variety of cute outfits! It would be adorable with anything from a pair of denim cutoffs to topping your favorite spring dress. I’m not usually one to stick to a monochromatic color palette, opting instead for fun mixes of prints and colors. There’s something so sleek and chic about an all white look that I couldn’t resist, though!

You may remember this dress from this post… I love it! It looks great dressed up or dressed down, lightweight, so pretty for spring.

Gift Guide: Great Mother’s Day Gifts

by

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! My mom is so wonderful and works SO hard, it’s really important to me to get her a fabulous gift that makes her feel appreciated. While my main ‘Love Language’ is definitely ‘words of affirmation’, I think ‘gifts’ comes in close second! I really love gifts; both giving and receiving. I get so excited when I find the PERFECT present for someone, I can’t even really wait to give it to them. Often, I leave gift buying ’til the last minute because I can’t STAND not giving someone their gift right away, which is beyond horrible by the way! The funny thing is, I don’t think my mom really cares too much about gifts. She’s more of an ‘acts of service’ type, so really, the best way to express appreciation for her on Mother’s Day is to do something for her.

But, you still need to get a gift anyway! Mother’s Day is the perfect time to spoil your mama. Honestly, I don’t know about yours, by my mom NEVER gets herself anything! Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to buy something she’d never get for herself– a luxe face cream, a beautiful bag, a pair of expensive sandals. I’ve rounded up a few amazing gift ideas for some inspo! Check them out below and tell me in the comments: what are you getting your mom??

The Coolest Shirtdress… Ever.

by

Blue and white stripe shirtdress-2

This dress got SO many comments and compliments when I posted it on Snapchat and Instagram last week! You guys LOVED it, as do I. So excited to finally be able to share it on the blog!

Before we get started… I have to apologize that it’s a little wrinkled in a few photos! I wore this dress in the car on the way to Palm Beach last week and it got totally wrinkled. ARGH! I need a travel steamer, clearly. Sorry. #BloggerProblems

I had spotted this striped shirtdress last year and was really intrigued by it. I didn’t immediately notice, but it’s designed to look like you’ve thrown on a men’s dress shirt at an angle! Isn’t that AWESOME? I think it’s, like, the coolest thing ever lol! In case you don’t see it, it buttons up all the way up the side! The collar buttons right around the shoulder. I mean, obvi it’s not a REAL men’s shirt, unless the guy was HUGE and had a gigantic neck lol!

But the idea is really unique and fun! I was initially worried that it wouldn’t be flattering on me, but I was wrong, I love it. The additional belt really ties the whole thing together! I love the asymmetrical neckline and the fact that it’s half off the shoulder. The whole look is so casual and effortless. For sizing reference, I am wearing a SMALL. Make sure you pay close attention the measurements, as always. Oh yeah– and it’s only $17.59!! Under $20? You need this for spring and summer.

Blue and white just feels like it naturally screams for cognac accents, don’t you think? I am obsessed with the Tory Burch York tote, it’s my new go-to. I can throw my laptop in it, my notebook, makeup bag,wallet… everything! I love the compartments, it helps keep me semi-organized when I’m running around town.

Floral Bell Sleeve Dress

by

Free People blue floral dress-7

Hope you babes had a great weekend! Last week, I headed up to Palm Beach to explore a bit and check out the shops… I had NEVER been before! It’s so beautiful up there, I’m wishing I could just relocate. There’s just such a different vibe! So many beautiful building and the prettiest flowers I’ve ever seen! The landscaping is on point.

Speaking of flowers, my obsession with floral prints continues, and next up… this Free People floral chiffon faux wrap dress. I am… SO in love with this dress! It was really comfortable and easy, but still really flattering. A wrap dress is acknowledged as being universally flattering on all body types and this little number is no exception. I was drawn to the beautiful blue color and the flowy chiffon fabric. The sleeves? MAJOR. If you’re traveling anywhere this spring and summer, let me tell you… you NEED this dress!

Great news– it’s actually on sale at Bloomingdale’s! Marked down to $89.60 from $128! (Which… PS… is what I paid for it, but whatever. WORTH IT.)
