Red, White, & Blue

IMG_7479

For Memorial Day weekend I wanted to wear something a little festive with red, white, and blue.  Where I live its still pretty cold and this day was particularly windy so I ended up having to change my top later on.  Don’t you just hate it when the weather doesn’t want to cooperate with your wardrobe choices? Lol.  I just loved how the blue top popped against the white jeans, and I topped them off with my favorite Spring sandals.

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend, and hopefully some sunshine!

Dreaming of Paris

IMG_7174

Paris is my most favorite place in the entire world.  I’ve been twice and I just feel like its such a magical city.  Its so beautiful everywhere you look, no matter the weather.  I say a rainy day in Paris is better than a sunny day anywhere else!  Since I have such a deep love for Paris, I’m a sucker for anything that reminds me of it, so I had to pick up this cute tee when I saw it in H&M.  In particular, this reminds me of my first trip to Paris when I splurged on a bottle of Chanel No.5 perfume from the original Chanel store on the Rue Cambon, which makes me love it even more.

I love wearing jeans and a tee a lot of times because its so easy and casual, but pairing them with some cute heels just makes it a little more fun.  I love these heels that I’m wearing because the lace up detail gives the outfit a little edge.  Since they’re not too high, they’re pretty comfortable and great for wearing during the day.

These are my go-to jeans because I love the color and the fit.  If you’re a shortie like me (I’m only 5’1″), you know how hard it is to find jeans that are the right length.  Most of the time I end up having to hem them, but these ones from Rich and Skinny Jeans are actually a cropped style and fit me in length perfectly.

Hope you enjoy!

Mixing Prints

IMG_6855 I love mixing prints because it’s a little unexpected and it adds some interest to an outfit.  Stripes and leopard are some of my favorite prints alone, but together they’re even better!  I usually try to keep the colors in mind when mixing prints so that it’s not too overwhelming, but I find that leopard print can usually be used as a neutral and can work with any color. To ground the prints, I paired them with a plain black skort. Some people may be over the skort trend, but I love them!  They’re so much fun and can be worn casually or more dressed up since they fool you into thinking its a skirt from the front. I also love them because they remind me of being a kid in the 90’s. I thought skorts were so cool because I didn’t have to worry about wearing shorts under skirts when playing on the playground 🙂 To complete the outfit I used my favorite Kate Spade purse. I love this purse because it’s a really classic and sophisticated shape, but then the bow detail on the front pocket makes it so fun and girly! Hope you enjoy!

Bright Pink on a Gloomy Day

photo 4

Yesterday was such a gloomy day, but this pink shirt really helped to brighten it up!  It’s such a fun color and I really love the cut-out detail on the shoulders.  It really popped against all the neutrals and I liked how the gold accents complemented the color.  I love white jeans for the Spring.  They just look so fresh and can be paired with any color, but I especially love them with brights and neons!  These sandals reminded me so much of the Kate Spade sandals in a similar style, that I just had to get them when I saw them at Target for a fraction of the price!  Target is always my favorite place to shop for sandals.  They always come out with such cute styles and are great if you
