Let’s Talk Rainbows


From simple to vibrant, this trend is one that brings a smile to my face every time. During the winter months I tend to stick to pretty neutral colors, but as soon as the temperatures start to rise, my color palette becomes much more vibrant. I also love a good, kitschy item, so this trend is everything I love rolled into one. Whether it’s a simple necklace like the one above, or an all out rainbow striped dress, there’s a way to incorporate this trend in regardless of your style.
Below are some of the other rainbow items I’m currently loving:

1. These jeweled slides would look perfect with a concert tee and cut offs. 

2. A colorful crocheted swimsuit perfect for frolicking in the sun.

3. The perfect date night dress.

4. This bag that would elevate even the most basic of outfits. 

5. And the perfect tee to go with it.

It’s been popping up for months on feeds and in fashion articles, but it wasn’t until i was scrolling my own actual closet that I even consider trying it out for myself. When I think monochromatic dressing my first instinct is to reach for blacks, greys, whites or even dramatic colors. 

Beige is a color that for whatever reason seems to get a bland rap. However, as the runways have proven (at least to me) when paired all together it creates a classic look that still has an easy casual vibe that says, “I just threw this one before running out the door”. 

Will this be my go to color from now on? No, but I will definitely be reaching for it way more often now!

Let’s Talk Pearls



Pearls have been popping up for quite a while both on the runways and social media feeds, but in recent months they seem to have had an increased surge.

Now I for one am fully on board with this trend, especially in the form of hair clips. It adds an unexpected elegance and playfulness to even the simplest of outfits, and I plan on adding more to my collection.

In my opinion pearls are here to stay and I’m all for it! Below are some of the other pieces I’ve got my eye on currently:

A simple, yet chic statement bag

These slides that would pair just as well with cutoffs, as with a floaty summer dress

This sweater with just the right amount of embellishment

Statement jeans I never knew I needed before now

I would love to hear–do you love this trend too?

Boogie Fever


Jumpsuit: Ross (similar) / Shoes: Rock & Candy / Purse: Like Dreams (similar)

 

Ever since I went disco dancing a few weekends back I have had Boogie Fever stuck in my head on repeat, with an itch to go back. As soon as I saw this jumpsuit I knew I had to have–could it not be more perfect?! The colorful print gives it that 70s retro vibe, and though I paired it down with simple black sandals to make it more appropriate for daytime wear, I plan on throwing on some sky high platforms to dance the night away (as soon as I have a free Saturday night again that is)!

Next Up

I have always loved the style of the 60s and 70s, but am especially loving the bright colored bell bottoms and more structured pieces I have been seeing as of late. They feel both like a nod to the era of peace, love, and Aquarius, while also feeling appropriate and modern for summer. Yellow isn’t a color I wear too often (although I have been on the hunt for a pair of mustard mules the last few months), but as soon as I saw these bright yellow jeans I knew I had to give them a spin. And to change it up, instead of hunting down another denim skirt, although there are many on my list to try, this BB Dakota dress has all the things I love (buttons all down the front, a structured fit, natural blue wash), while being at least a little different from the pieces I’ve been wearing recently. I absolutely can not wait to style these two beauties up while rocking out to some of my favorite oldies!

Metallic Mules–An item I didn’t know I’d been missing, but now can’t live without!

I happened upon these mules while shopping with my cousin and aunt one day and it was love at first sight! I had been shopping for boots, but ended up backtracking and immediately trying them on. They’re comfortable and my lazy butt loves any shoe I can just slide on. While I knew that I would get a good amount of wear from them, I had absolutely no idea just how much. The silver works perfectly as a neutral and I wear them practically everything. My only regret it not purchasing a backup pair while they were still in stock! I strongly urge you to invest in a pair of metallic mules or slides before the summer is over–you won’t regret it!
