Hey all! Happy Friday, and hope you’re having a great week so far. I’m in San Diego this week for a work conference, and while I’m here I’m making sure to take time to see the sights. This is only my second time in California, and I’m seriously loving the weather and the people, and this city. Quickly falling in love with San Diego. 🙂
Hey everybody! It’s officially the season for summer dresses. This time of year I always stock my closet with versatile, lightweight, and girly summer dresses that make getting ready, whether for work or play, a total breeze. I played around wit mixing patterns today, pairing this beautiful, fit-and-flare blue striped dress with pink floral heels, combining some of my favorite style elements: florals, full skirts, and a contrasting color palette. Hope you like!
Hey all! This week I have a fun outfit to share combining two major trends this year, and two of my favorite ones possibly ever: embroidery and bell sleeves! It’s definitely an eye-catching combination, but I think it’s super fun to style these two very bold trends in one look, and this is an outfit I’ve worn a few times, and one I always feel pretty and confident wearing! I’m pretty obsessed with embroidery lately, ain’t gonna lie. Anything floral print pretty much has my heart. <3
One of the best pieces I bought this year was this simple, button-down denim dress. A frugal shopper, I scored it on sale at Wet Seal just before they closed down, and despite the price tag, it’s a quality piece I’ve worn a dozen times already since I bought it in late January. I’ve worn it to work with tights during winter, and now that it’s a wet, chilly spring here, it’s still the perfect casual work look—with a spring upgrade!
I’m all about trying ways to make my work outfits super fun, and one of the ways I do that is by playing with patterns and shapes. There’s nothing I love better than a good ol’ floral print, so wearing anything with a floral print (like embroidery) instantly makes me feel more like myself! Which is especially important when you’re dressing for work–business casual can even be a drag sometimes.
I put together this look with shades of blue and a contrasting pale pink shoe. I think it’s a perfect work-appropriate spring look that you can wear afterward, too. Letting an outfit take you from desk to dinner is a definite plus! Hope you like this look. 🙂Read More »
End of summer means TIGHTS! I’m one of those girls who love stockings and tights of all kinds, and think that a good pair of tights can totally make an entire outfit. I love patterned tights, brightly-colored tights, soft knit ones, and thin sheer ones to achieve every kind of look possible.
Today, I’m highlighting these amazing brocade-patterned knit tights by Hue, paired with this amazing, heavy sweater dress from Dezzal. It’s a bit of an unusual style, because the hems are all artfully ripped in different places, which is why I absolutely had to have this dress to begin with! It’s heavy and warm, but the no-sleeves thing make it a good fall piece—perfect to transition! I hope you like this look…
Hello all! Back with an outfit that’s a little out of my comfort zone today, inspired by the 90s trends that are currently coming back like crazy. I wore this outfit to a concert in the city recently. I borrowed this soft shirt dress from my sister, and paired it with some accessories that remind me of Kylie Jenner doing throwback 90s trends!

I love long summer evenings when the sun takes forever to set, and so for hours the entire world looks like it’s gilded. I took these photos during that golden hour time, and it was actually perfect for this outfit. The romper is a knit romper from Shein, a website I’ve reviewed before and still find to be a decent outlet for trends, and this soft jumpsuit is a perfect transition piece for my wardrobe.
New favorite romper! Floral prints and red are two of my favorite things, so this outfit is basically perfect for me. I have a little bit of trouble with rompers being too damn short, so I was initially very hesitant about ordering a romper from Romwe, but to my very pleasant surprise, this piece fits me perfectly, aside from a small pin in the neckline to make sure I don’t have any wardrobe malfunctions. 🙂
Romwe has been in the news lately for providing less than stellar pieces of clothing, which was a consideration for me when I accepted a sponsorship, but I think that with a few smart shopping tips, which I plan to talk more about in a future post, there are perks to doing some frugal, “fast fashion” shopping at these inexpensive sites.
I paired this romper with one of my favorite pairs of shoes for the season, from Nasty Gal’s collection. I bought them in 2014, and surprisingly, they’re still in style. (Truly, even if they weren’t, I would still wear them often.) I hope you like this look, because I certainly think this romper will become a staple in my summer wardrobe this year!
Today’s outfit is another work-appropriate one featuring some brand-new styles from Statement Boutique. First, these daisy-printed cotton pants I’m obsessed with, and then this chiffon vest I love! I paired it with a pair of blush sandals from Jeffrey Campbell.
Both these pieces are courtesy of the online boutique Statement Boutique. The owner, Nina, decided to open a digital store to provide unique pieces of clothing that were appropriate in both professional settings and casual ones, which I think this outfit perfectly mixes.
