For The Love of Farmers’ Markets

If anyone knows me, they know I love a good farmer’s market. It’s my chance to scope out the fresh produce and flowers and look stylish at the same time! Below is a recap of my outfit and day at the Portland Farmer’s Market!

Backpack: Steve Madden (Similar)     Shorts (Not Shown): Gap (Similar)

On this day, my boyfriend and I were really interested to see what the Portland Farmer’s Market had to offer. They were one of the bigger ones that I have gone to and had so much to buy. From pickles, to fresh fruits and veggies, and the giant sunflowers (my favorite), there was so much to look at.

That day, I wore a simple white off-the-shoulder top with chambray shorts, sunglasses, my little backpack, and a dainty necklace! It was the easiest outfit to sport on a hot day, especially while looking at all the yummy food!

I definitely recommend checking out a local farmer’s market! It’s a great way to spend the day and spot some delicious treats!

Appreciate The Gray Skies

The weather has been quite gray lately, but that shouldn’t ruin your fall. Enjoy the gray skies and crisp cool breeze. Soon, we will be dealing with mounds of snow and ice. So, why not match your outfit to the color of the day?

I did just that by keeping with the cool, dark tones. I decided to wear a stripe, tweed blue and gray skirt. I paired it with a long black sweater that has faux leather detailing on the arms. This type of sweater is perfect with a form fitting skirt because it drapes right over it! I added a leather jacket to keep warm and even a patterned scarf to add another touch of blue. I finished off the look with a pair of chestnut riding boots and my black Tory Burch tote.

This is my FAVORITE SKIRT! It fits many body types and actually slims the hips, rather than making them look bigger. The horizontal striped pattern can be unflattering at times on certain body types, but even a solid would work. It’s the perfect way to dress up, yet add a cool edge to your style!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday and do not forget to embrace those occasional gray skies!

Don’t Question My Style!

I am all for trying out new trends and styles. I am also always wanting to put pieces together that some may question. Pairing a pair of ripped, distressed denim with such a feminine classic, blush colored blouse is what I am all about. Don’t question it; learn from it!

I am wearing a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. However, I rolled up the cuffs to give the look more of a shape. I also decided to pair a sheer, blush colored blouse with a bow near the neck. The blouse is such a soft color, but would look lovely on all skin tones. Since I was in the park, I wore an easy pair of sandals, but prior, I wore a pair of nude studded flats. I also wore my Tory Burch tote to tie the look together.

I love this mashed up look. The jeans were definitely an unexpected twist, but that is what style is all about. They added comfort with a cool, cute edge. It was combining a girly look with a slight “boyfriend” feel.

Try out the unexpected! Sometimes the best outfits come from pieces you’d least expect being paired together.

Dancing in the Dark

I love getting dressed up! Dinners are so fun for me because I really enjoy the time I get to just sit down, do my hair and makeup, and feel glamorous! Friday was one of those nights, and I knew it was a must for the blog; however, I decided to photograph it in the dark…

I decided to wear a black and white tweed mini-skirt with faux leather trim. I paired a cream crop top to complete the look, revealing a little skin. I accessorized a lot with my faux Cartier silver and gold bangles, my gold fossil watch, and a black studded wrap bracelet. My shoes (not shown) are beige, pizza toe flats with small studs on the front.

Skirt: Nordstroms (Similar)       Top: Forever 21

I love this look! I was inspired by the beautiful Carli Bybel! She wore an ensemble very similar that was classic black and white, but added a modern twist with a crop top! Perfect for dinner or a night out on the town! Just don’t show too much skin!

Shades of Summer

I slowly, but surely feel my style transforming into the true summer vibe. With my skin getting tanner and my makeup being applied less and less, I’m turning to my closet to form outfits that show my love of the summer heat and bright skies. My fave item lately?! Light weight pattern shorts! Throw it on with a loose fitting top, and your outfit is complete!

I am wearing a pair of daisy pink pattern shorts with a cream background! The shorts are a light material with pockets and an elastic waist band! They can be worn higher or lower depending on your mood! I paired a simple, white sleeveless blouse with a V in the front. To accessorize, I paired my gold and peach face Fossil watch, a pair of simple sandals, a pair of white drop earrings, and my translucent brown baroque style sunnies. Makeup was kept on the more pink/peach side today, and hair was left straight!

If you do not have a pair of these shorts in your closet, then I recommend getting a bunch of them! They are so comfy, yet so stylish! They can be worn casual with a loose crop top to the beach or worn more put together with a strappy sandal and loose blouse like I did! Accessorizing is key to transforming this pair of shorts from easygoing to very dolled up! Mine are from a store located in Charleston, SC called Willy Jay’s! Check them out on Facebook or Instagram! They also have a website that I’ll link below.

Find a fun pattern that you love and wear them everywhere! I promise you, these shorts will change your life!
