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!

Pinks and Floral

You can never wear too much pink and floral, right? Of course not! My two favorite things were a necessity while trying to get ready on this very gray morning! I am tired of this dreary weather and wanted to wear something that brightened my mood and matched!

I decided to pull some light pink/ peach ripped shorts out of my closet and paired it with a floral sleeveless button down! I wanted to feel “matchy” today and like the sun was shining! (Even though it was not.) The style was simple and easy for a day of errands. I threw over a jean jacket when I needed it and just added a pair of simple sandals! I didn’t do much with my hair except keep it straight, so I could easily pull it out of my face when needed!

These shorts are very on trend and can be paired with nearly any shirt in your closet! Below are the store links and similar pieces! Enjoy my loves!

Glamour Girl!

It has been long overdue, I know, but I am here with some prom shenanigans! I thought since I have been talking an awful lot about prom, I would show you my look for prom number 1! Enjoy!

I went all out and recommend doing the same for prom! It really is once in a lifetime when you can dress up and have the glitz and the glam! I know I felt like a glamour girl! I’d really love to see all of your prom choices, and I am sure you will all look lovely! Take the time and make it right!

Accessory Challenge: Day 3

Happy Day 3 of my accessory challenge! Once again, if you have not been keeping up with my last couple of posts, I am doing an accessory challenge this week with some amazing spring goodies from Leavitt and Co!

 I am a girl whose style changes like the wind! I love trying out different types of styles and genres of fashion! Recently, I have been very into the boho/hippy feel! It’s not only cute and different, but very comfortable and versatile!

I am wearing a black and cream tribal print kimono with black tassel detailing! I paired this with a plain white tank and some baggy, high-waisted black slacks with a slim fit ankle! I then wore this chunky, pink Leavitt and Co necklace to add a pop of color! I finished the look with a black wide brim hat and some short, camel colored booties.

I love this look! Although it is not everyday for me, it is something to play around with and try out! Some may think it’s too eccentric for them, but it is actually just about combining pieces and making it your own! I do recommend purchasing a long kimono! It’s an easy way to achieve a boho look! Pair it with a pair of jeans instead, some loose waves, and an easy tee, and you are good to go!

The necklace ties the entire look together, and I am absolutely in love with the color and style! For more jewelry by Leavitt and Co, check out their website posted below or Facebook page, and keep up to date with the rest of my accessory challenge!

The Perfect Gift: Valentines Day

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, but it is not too late to buy a gift! This year I have seen so many adorable items that would be perfect for the lady in your life! From bags to sweet lotions, there are many items for you to choose from! <3 <3

Kate Spade-

I stumbled upon these Kate Spade bags a week ago and could not resist! They are perfect for Valentines day with their heart themes, but will also look adorable for everyday. They are small and easy, and a great way to achieve both dressed up and down looks! They are pricier, but definitely worth the splurge!

These PJ sets are a perfect and easy gift! PJ’s are my go to gifts for people because you can never go wrong! As long as they have an adorable slogan, then it’s perfect for the v-day celebration.

Jewelry-

Jewelry is always the go to gift for Valentines day! However, everyone thinks it has to be diamonds to qualify for the purchase! But it doesn’t! More trendy staple pieces that a girl can wear everyday are the go to gifts of this season. My favorite jewelry company Bauble Bar sells adorable statement necklaces and other colorful, delicious pieces. The prices range from inexpensive to expensive, and some of the pieces can even be custom monogram. Other fashion bloggers, such as Courtney Kerr have designed a line of pieces for the company! Check it out!

Philosophy-

For the girl who loves everything sweet, but doesn’t want to splurge on having a bite of candy, philosophy is the perfect solution! Their sweet treat lotions and body washes are delicious and actually smell like the goodies that they are supposed to represent. The packaging is also perfect and doesn’t even need wrapping!
