Rose Tee x Gingham Trim Denim Skirt

Rose Tee x Gingham Trim Skirt

I love a good casual look that's made up of a tee and some jeans, but I love it even more when a tee and denim can make people do double takes! Take this look, for example. When you really think about it, it's a pretty basic formula. A tee shirt and denim. Sure, that denim is in the form of skirt but it's still denim, right? If that's all this look was, it would still be a pretty cute outfit. But when you bring in details like rose embroidery and gingham, it takes a simple look to another level. First of all, I love this rose tee so much. It's made by Two Songs (Aimee Song and her sister, Dani) and 50% of the proceeds from this tee goes to support women with…

Mismatched Shoes

Mismatched Shoes

I am always looking for an excuse to buy more than I really need to. I don't know if it's because I'm an actual shopping addict or because I'm trying to prove J wrong when he tells me I don't need something. Either way, once my brain comes up with a reason, there's no stopping me. The excuse I've been using lately is other fashion bloggers. When I see a trend I like on another blogger, I tell myself that I absolutely need to try it out myself (you know, for research). So when I saw Aimee Song wearing mismatched shoes on her Instagram the other day, I started my hunt for mismatched shoes. It really wasn't that hard. I found a pair of shoes I liked in two colors I wanted and voila,…

Everyone's favorite summer holiday is almost here so I'm sharing a few of my festive picks today! All of these pieces are perfect for a little weekend getaway to the lake or beach AND they're all under $100! I love the star print tee - very Fourth of July but also just a great tee to have for summer! And the gingham print dress! You already know I'm obsessed with gingham so why not add some more to the closet?! I've also been obsessed with round lens sunglasses lately so I absolutely had to put these cute silver/blue ones on the list (and in my shopping cart)!

Off Shoulder Ruffle Dress

Off Shoulder Ruffle Dress

You know when you see something and want it but have no information whatsoever on it so you just wait and wait hoping it'll magically show up in your life again? I saw a dress on Pinterest months ago that I had to have and clicked on the pin but was so disappointed when it just took me to a larger version of the image. No brand name, no site, no description... NOTHING. So I spent hours and hours coming up with descriptions and searching for this beautiful dress I needed in my life but nothing came up for the longest time. And suddenly, when I stopped searching... BAM! There it was on Shopbop in all of its pretty glory with the simplest description too: Off Shoulder Dress. Now I can't say it was…

Floral Split Leg Jumpsuit

Floral Split Leg Jumpsuit

I shop online a lot. Like a lot more than a normal person probably should. It's just so convenient especially once you know how a brand fits you. You see something you like, click "add to cart", and bam - you've got pretty goodies coming your way! But I also understand why some people are hesitant to order clothes online. Sometimes you order clothes expecting it to look exactly the way it does on the model and it just doesn't or the fit is off. But I've learned that most times buying it and hoping for the best is worth the risk of it not working out. Case in point: this gorgeous jumpsuit. I was super nervous when I bought this jumpsuit from Shoptiques. It was super pretty on the model but my lack…

Sheer Red Mesh Top

Sheer Red Mesh Top

We got our first little taste of Chicago summer this past weekend and it felt glorious! But it also made me realize I need a lot more summer clothes. Yes, it was absolutely gorgeous outside but it was also a bit toasty and I momentarily panicked thinking I didn't have anything to wear for the heat! Thank goodness I recently bought this adorable mesh top! For those of you who only associate mesh and tulle with ballet skirts, I'm here to show you that that's not the case! I love this top because it's a perfect way to stay cool without having to strip down to a tank and shorts (not that there's anything wrong with that!). It gives your outfit that something extra when really it's just a simple top over a basic…

Striped Top x Pearly Whites

Striped Top x Pearly Whites

Memorial Day Weekend is coming up and that means it's time to whip out your summer whites! To be honest, I never really followed that rule because I think you should be able to wear white whenever you want to BUT it's so fun to wear your lightest and brightest to mark the beginning of the best season of the year! I know a lot of people are hesitant to wear white in general because it's the ultimate stain magnet. As careful as I might be, I somehow always manage to get stains on everything so for this reason, I've avoided white jeans and shorts for a really long time. I think this is the year though. I have a few white jeans in a couple of online shopping carts so I'm crossing my…

Belted Blazer x Denim Skirt

Belted Blazer x Denim Skirt

Remember this pretty little pajama blazer? Well, I love it so much that I wanted to show you guys another way to style it! As we are all fully aware, denim skirts are back in style and aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I love the idea of a blazer and a denim skirt together because it gives you that perfect, casual look. I've also noticed I've been really drawn to belts lately, especially the bigger belts. Remember when you were younger and would wear an obnoxiously large belt over a tee? I'm not going quite as extreme as I did in my younger days but same idea here! The belt transforms the blazer into a top and the little peek of denim on the bottom gives you that perfect day-to-night outfit. All pictures were…

Today's post is going to be short and sweet, but I love this look and wanted to share it with you guys! This mini dress from Tobi is so perfect for a night out with my girls and I love it paired with some cute white boots! It's got sort of a 70s vibe to it, no? It also has POCKETS. And I know everyone loves a good dress with pockets! Get the Look: Dress: Tobi Corlette Wine Shift Dress | Boots: Steve Madden Amara Boots | Bag (old, similar): BCBG MaxAzria Sadie Box Clutch

With Memorial Day coming up and summer around the corner, gingham's presence in my life just keeps on growing.
