Usually, I’m sharing an outfit with a white top and I’m sure you all know that’s my go-to outfit by now. But when I want an easy way to mix things up, I swap out my light wash jeans for black or white denim. I recently pulled out these white Everlane high rise skinny jeans I got last year and they’re a great effortless style for the season. I sized up in them last year and they’re an ever-so-slightly slightly relaxed fit on me. If you want them skinnier, I would definitely stick to your normal size, as they do bag out slightly. FYI, I’m 5’6” and have the ankle length and am wearing a size 26. They’re also a great price at $68!Read More
Another day, another midi dress. By now, you can probably tell I’m very into this style lately. No shame. There’s just something about the effortless fit that makes me love throwing them on. I feel classic, feminine and chic in an instant and you don’t have to worry about showing anything off when you bend over? Win, win, win. These are perfect for running around town. And a classic striped midi dress? Even better.
I honestly thought this Vici striped midi dress was going to be more of a cotton fabric when I ordered it because I didn't read the description. I didn’t realize until it came that it was more of a slinky, polyester and spandex combination, but I ended up loving that because it’s wrinkle-free, super stretchy and perfectly swingy. This would be a great piece for travel!
I tossed it on with a denim jacket for a cooler evening but still kept it dressy with slide heels. Again, I love how you could also wear this with sandals or even sneakers for a casually cool vibe. For me, I think the key to midi dresses is having something that nips in at some part of your body and this does a great job of flattering the waist. I'm 5'6" and the length is great with both flats and heels.
Thank you always for reading!

One of my all time combinations (besides denim and lace) is leather and lace. I'm a big fan of mixing styles, and feminine and edgy are two of my all time favorites together. Liquid leather leggings and a top with romantic details was one of my go-to's, especially throughout the cooler months, and I love throwing on a faux leather jacket over a pretty blouse, but I don't think I've ever had a piece that did the mixing FOR me. Until now! When I saw this faux leather and lace cami from Jewel Be Mine I was instantly intrigued. I love the edginess of the leather with just a touch of lace and as weird as this sounds, I really think it might be one of those classic wardrobe staple pieces. I initially thought it would be a fun piece to have for a night out, but I was determined to make it work for day, as well. And you know what? It really did work. I knew a denim jacket would instantly tone down the sexiness it gives off, but a simple cardi could do the same. Paired with white skinnies (or even a fun printed pencil skirt) it was perfect for a day of window browsing and wine tasting. It didn't hurt that there happened to be a motorcycle convention and my leather fit in quite nicely. But really--I'm excited to get some wear out of this one!
I also snagged this studded deco necklace (below) from Jewel Be Mine. They have some really fun pieces at affordable prices, and again--a good mix of edgy. classic, feminine, glam. Their clothing is similar with somewhat of a classic "California" vibe and touches of glam and edge. At seriously great prices! My top is only $39!

So I finally jumped on the liquid/faux leather legging bandwagon a few months ago and they have definitely become my go-to when I want a step up from my typical denim look. I have been loving the versatility and that you really can pull them off for day--and night!. I spent my Saturday out watching people watch football and this was the perfect comfy/casual weekend look kicked up a notch. If you don't have liquid leggings in your closet yet, get on it. I promise you'll never want take them off and the possibilities are pretty much endless. I love these ones from ASOS. Also, this hat is STILL available at Target for only $16.99, woop!

I'm a big fan of neutrals and pastels all year round, but especially during the winter months. There's something so crisp and clean about about a little winter white, grey, or even pastel pink. These Jbrand skinnies are a soft pink that get a lot of spring and summer wear, but I am loving the lighter colors for fall and winter, too. A denim jacket, neutral booties, and a pop of oxblood take this springy look into winter!

With the temperatures dropping and winter quickly approaching, scarves are becoming the easiest and most functional way to accessorize. My simple denim on denim look got an instant update thanks to a pop of... blanket scarf! Last season I completely missed out on the blanket scarf craze and I seem to be on a mission to make up for it this year. I picked up the infamous tartan scarf on eBay last month, but had also had my eye on this one for quite some time. When I saw it on Brina Box I knew I (might as well) snag it, and I have to say... I think I might like it even more than my tartan. Is it weird to say I think the tartan washes me out?! This one is double sided which means you get a mix of two of the seasons trendiest patterns, plaid and houndstooth, and of course, extra bang for your buck. With the multitude of ways to tie a blanket scarf (not to mention, it's actual function as a blanket!) it really is like getting at least(!) 10 different scarves in one.
