A Colorful Mess

Looking put together in my not-so-put-together life is sometimes the only remedy I can think of to help get me through. A colorful mess. A beautiful wreck. Whatever you want to call it, I’m just trying to get by. I knew fashion played a huge part of my life when I began to feel confident, pretty, and just important when I wore an outfit that I loved. I’m a firm believer that even though fashion doesn’t cure anything or fix all of my problems (wouldn’t that be nice?) … it can lighten your mood and lift your spirits a little bit to get you through the day.

Sometimes that’s all we need when it feels like the whole world is crashing down on you…A pretty dress and an empty smile.

 

Love you guys,

Little Summer Black Dress // Under $35

Look no further. I have found the perfect little black dress for the hot summer months. One that’s perfect for special occasions while also still being comfortable enough to go to the grocery store in. This lace A-Line dress under $35 is the best of both worlds. I never thought I would love a more basic yet elegant black dress before. It’s quality reminds me of something that J.Crew, Tory Burch or Kate Spade would design but a fourth of the cost! I felt like I really scored with this one, not to mention how beautiful I feel in it. In the end, that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?

Romper Under $25 #2 (Target Series)

Hello fashion friends! We are back at it again with my favorite affordable rompers in collaboration with Target. I wanted to show you that you can have a great summer wardrobe with fun texture and pattern for less. Today’s style is inspired by the bohemian girl in all of us. The fringe, fedora and floral print says it all, not to mention the statement boots. As far as comfort goes, this romper takes the cake. It feels like pajamas in the best way and the coolest part about it is that you can throw this on and get out in there in sunshine, no hassle! What’s not to love about that.

Target, you’ve done it again.

With Love,

Romper Under $25 #1 (Target Series)

IMG_33478 IMG_33465 IMG_33480 IMG_33457 IMG_33473

Hey Guys! Today I’m kicking off a new series featuring rompers that are just under $25. I’ve teamed up with Target to bring you some great summer buys that you need in your wardrobe right this minute. I wanted to start this series off with my personal favorite embroidered crochet romper. I feel like I belong at a music festival in this outfit. Anyone have any concert tickets? You can obviously wear this romper by itself but I wanted to share with you how to style it to it’s maximum capacity. I wore a trendy handkerchief around my neck, cinched the romper with a belt and tied the look together with my timeless combat boots.

I’m so excited about this Target series of three. I hope to give you more affordable clothing options in the future. You don’t need to spend a fortune to feel good and look good. Am I right?

Oh Target, you’ve never done wrong.

With Love,

Oh Target. Why do you have to be so good? Every time Wyatt and I go on a Target run I always stumble upon some great buys that are impossible to resist. I found this striped tee on our latest endeavor to Target while on the phone with my Maid of Honor. At the moment I decided on this black and white print but now that I’m thinking about it, I might have to go back and stock up on a few more. Why? Why do I need more basic tee’s added to my wardrobe? Because they’re just $6, that’s why. I spend more on a Chipotle burrito. I believe this is the “Mossimo” brand that makes up the majority of Target’s inventory. I love this brand personally. The material of this top is incredibly soft and comfy.

I wanted to rock this tee but I wanted to do so in a chic street style manner. So… I threw on my new distressed midi skirt and stopped by my local Whole Foods, bought these bouquet of roses for myself and went on with my day. I just love the contrast of the roses and my lipstick against this grey background. The striped tee neutralizes everything while bringing some pattern along with it. Not to mention that my current read, “Me Before You” matches this set up perfectly. This was all accidental by the way.

I’m just about halfway done with my book and I’m in love so far. I love fiction books based on romance and adventure. I really love that the movie for it comes out soon. My plan is to finish it before the movie premiers and watch it on it’s opening day! The book is ALWAYS better than the movie but it’s still so amazing to see the book that you’ve read for weeks come to life right before your eyes. If you’re looking for something to read and you’re a bit of a romantic, you need this book.

With Love,
