The Confetti Dress

IMG_9591 IMG_9583 IMG_9586 IMG_9581 IMG_9556I call this my confetti dress because it looks like a party just threw up all over it. The very moment I laid my eyes on this dress I knew I had found my summer love. The muted pastel polka dots creates such a “I love summer” kind of vibe without being too overwhelming. This is that kind of dress where people will continue to stop, stare and swoon even if you feel like it’s magic has worn off. I, unfortunately, feel like an outfit loses it’s purpose after one go around. Sometimes, I cannot wear an outfit twice, (well I can but I choose not to) because I believe it loses some sort of “magic” that it holds only once or twice of wear. It sounds very foolish but being a fashion blogger, I’m always looking for more. What’s new? What’s in-style? Another positive about being the fashion lover that I am is finding more and more ways to sustain that magic for as long possible. My favorite thing to do, when I’m bored, is reinvent my wardrobe. I love taking oldies but goodies and making them feel like new by adding a trendy piece. That’s a fashionista’s biggest secret. You will see this dress again, in a different form I’m sure. I love wearing things more than twice as long as I make it unique every single time, whether I change up an accessory or shoe, the magic will never stop.

Just like everything else in fashion AND in life, the magic is only there if you allow it to be.

That 70’s Skirt

IMG_9526 IMG_9534 IMG_9543 IMG_9546 IMG_9541 IMG_9533 IMG_9527This post is for those minimal but trendy ladies out there. I always love adding easy, breezy outfits to my blog because it’s very likely that you own similar pieces in your own closets. I’m sure you have a grey crop top and denim skirt… and if you don’t, you should because they are all the rage right now. The 70’s styled denim skirt is so popular at the moment, every store has recently came out with their own versions of it. I also see them every single time I check my Instagram. I feel like I belong on a modern day version of “That 70’s Show.”

One thing I do recommend if you choose to be inspired by this outfit post is to LEAVE THE LEATHER JACKET AT HOME. It was 80 something degrees outside and I was close to having a heat stroke while taking these pictures. I just wanted the jacket for dramatic effect but I nearly died. (Exaggeration is my specialty, can you tell?)

Have a fabulous day! See you next time!

Denim Forever

IMG_9361 IMG_9344 IMG_9366 IMG_9371 IMG_9355 IMG_9342 IMG_9368

Denim isn’t just about jeans anymore. Oh no girlfriend, it’s 2015 and we wear denim all over: Tops, skirts, shorts, dresses, purses, belts and even shoes. This infamous fabric has officially taken over the fashion scene and I’m not complaining one bit. There is nothing wrong with owning too much indigo, chambray and denim…or at least that’s what I continue to tell myself. I have an abnormal love for denim and all things blue. Every single person on this planet owns a piece of denim in their closet. It’s the number one absolute must-have wardrobe piece. I love to experiment with denim on a daily basis but my favorite thing to do pair denim with (surprise, surprise) even more denim. This look will never go out of style in my opinion. I really think it’s the easiest look to put together in a hurry. How do you glam it up you ask? It’s so simple. A red lip and heels, obviously. I could wear this outfit, and all similar denim on denim outfits, for the rest of my life. If I was a designer (as if) and I had my own collection, you bet it would consist of new twists and takes on modern day denim.

Denim, denim, denim. Have I said that word enough?

 

Denim…forever.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful…Kimono

IMG_9388 IMG_9401 IMG_9398 IMG_9393 IMG_9399 IMG_9389 IMG_9397

I figured this statement, yet comfortable, outfit would be the perfect one to wear on my first day of my big girl job. I’m feeling all sorts of blessed and hopeful for the future and what better way to express that than this smile on my face and a fabulous kimono on my back, right? Why haven’t I hopped on the kimono train earlier? Maybe it’s because I haven’t found the perfect one, until now. This gold splattered kimono makes me feel like some enchanted fairy when I put it on. Beware my friends, kimonos are a powerful thing. To be honest, and don’t tell anyone I told you this, but they make you feel like Superwoman. It’s a like a fashion cape! 

I decided to keep this look minimal and moveable with my favorite pair of jeans and a white button up. You can throw a kimono on almost anything, like a dress. I plan on wearing this fashion cape on those bonfire kind of nights with a few of my best friends. (If that ever happens.) And if not, I think it will do just fine cuddled up with me on the couch watching my favorite t.v. shows.

Local Legend

IMG_8985 IMG_8952 IMG_8950 IMG_8968 IMG_8940 IMG_8953 IMG_8977 IMG_8956Graphic tees are one of the funnest things to style, in my opinion. They bring such spunk and voice to your wardrobe. I have so many graphic tees stored away in my closet and once in awhile I’ll bring them out when I’m feeling edgy. Since I have so many tees, I’m never really on a search for more until I saw this “Local Legend” one. I have no idea what made me want this crop top so much but I would spend hours just thinking about how I just had to have it in my life. I don’t even know if Local Legend is a band name but I had to buy it because it does have somewhat truth in my life. Every single time I go back to my home town I get so much love to my blog everywhere I go, from family, ex co-workers, old friends, but mostly strangers. It’s so much fun. I’m not a legend in no way, shape or form, but I like to pretend I am. A fashion legend.

The thing I love about graphic tees is that they can be paired with just about anything. I love rocking them with a leather jacket because those two are a match made in heaven. I wore my olive/brown shorts for comfort and my favorite Zara heels to keep things elevated. You will definitely see this crop top in the near future. I want to wear it all the time because the material just might be the softest material of all time. (I’m so dramatic.)

See ya later my local legends. Bring out your graphic tees today, they need love too.

With love,
