Striped Culottes

Culottes are such a fun trend that can transition from summer to fall. These ones are super light weight so they’re great for warmer weather, but paired with a denim jacket or sweater, they can also be worn into the cooler fall months.

If you’re short like me, I would recommend a pair with vertical stripes to draw the eye up, and wear them with heels. Anything to elongate your frame since culottes are a wide leg style that could make you look shorter.

Have you tried out culottes? What do you think of them?

Casual Athleisure + Fav Sweatshirt

I'm still loving the athleisure trend (who isn't??!). I've been wearing my black Adidas sweatshirt non stop, so when I saw they gray one in the Nordstrom sale, I knew it was something I would definitely be picking up. I love how comfortable it is and the minimalistic design that can be paired with anything and any color. I wear them to go on walks with Jr and Baby Jaden, or to run out to the store (yes, in the summer, it doesn't get very warm here!). I like pairing it with leggings or even denim shorts like I did here. What's your favorite way to wear the athleisure trend?

Pink Floral Sandals

If you're looking for a cute statement sandal this season, these are it! When I saw them I just thought they were so cute and I'm obsessed with them! The floral-y detail across the front is so cute and feminine, and perfect to add a little something extra to a casual look. I love that even though they're flats, they can dress up a look. I can see these being worn with a casual outfit, as well as with a pretty dress.

Summer Casual

IMG_9286It’s officially summer and I’ve been enjoying the warm weather we’ve been having. I spent some time at the beach with my family this past weekend so don’t mind the sunburn😬  When the weather gets warm I can’t wait to pull out my favorite shorts. I paired them with one of my favorite basic tees and my favorite booties for a casual summer look.

Studded Sandals

imageWhile everyone is getting ready for fall, it’s been warming up in the city. It’s been so nice and I even got to enjoy a beach day this past weekend!  I was excited to see that my favorite sandals were back in stock and I got to pick up the other color (I have them in black as well). These sandals are almost identical to the Valentino sandals but at a much more affordable price. They’re the closest I’ve found and I was a little bummed the first time that I bought the black ones, that they didn’t have my size in stock in the tan color. I would definitely recommend picking these up while they’re in stock if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the Valentino’s. Although summer’s almost over, they’d be great for next year. I tend to wear sandals all year though 🙂

Black Out

imageI love a monochrome outfit, especially in black. Black always looks chic, and I think black works all year round, even in summer. Monochrome is so easy because you know everything matches, but try to mix some textures like this (faux) leather jacket and cut out in the shorts. Another way to do monochrome is to use different shades of the same color. What do you think of monochrome looks?

Basically Neutral

imageI love basics and I love neutrals. I feel like I could never have enough of either because they just go with everything. It makes it so much easier to mix and match different items from your wardrobe whether you’re mixing them together or with more colorful or printed pieces. Add a cute bag and shoes and you’re ready to go.

Another basic I love is stud earrings.  I love these ones because they’re a simple shape but they’re gold and marble which is so on trend right now.
