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

metallicmules

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!

All DressedUp For Summer

There’s something so lovely about being able to throw on one piece and still make a statement. Though these dresses don’t have much in common I fell in love with both for their simple silhouettes and fun details. Both pieces can be dressed up or down depending on how they are styled, but for a hot summers day, all I plan on throwing on are some easy sandals or slides and some big cat eye sunglasses. How would you style these beauties?

A black moto jacket is a piece that can elevate even the simplest outfit.

A black leather jacket it a closet staple that I feel every woman (and man) should own. It’s an item that will never go out of style and can be worn a million different ways–as proof from the photos above. It’s a piece that can elevate the simplest of outfits (i.e. a white t-shirt and jeans) from ‘blah’ to cool-girl chic. Whether you’re looking for something with faux leather or real, fun details or one more streamlined, remember it’s all about fit! If you’re looking for a piece to really invest in, make sure that you absolutely love it before dropping the dough, but I guarantee if you do, you’ll reach for it time and time again!

Sparkle & Shine

Sometimes a little sparkle is all you need.

To brighten up an otherwise subdued Tuesday evening I decided to whip out this sequin top which has been sitting in my closet for ages. It’s a piece that I love, but struggle with wearing mostly due to how fancy it typically feels. By pairing it with some extra shredded and loose boyfriend jeans it brought the top down from “evening out on the town” to “Happy Hour ready”. And although I wear these jeans and shoes all the time, the top made outfit feel that little bit extra special without being over the top. It was absolutely perfect for sitting on the patio at my local watering hole with some good friends and of course rosé! 

Trend Talk Tuesday

Is there a print more quintessential to summer than gingham?

The Pattern of Summer

It brings to mind picnics in the park, movies after dark and chilled rose with friends. Or perhaps it just brings to mind those things I associate most with summer–which happens to be my favorite season! For the longest time I avoided this print thinking it “too busy” or “noisy” but now that I’ve tried it, I can’t seem to get enough. It works as both a neutral or as a fun pop to any outfit in both classic black and white, pastels, and bright reds.

O

I am absolutely over the rainbow for this colorful trend–which is not something I ever thought I’d say! Whether you’re into a more subdued color palette or are ready to embrace the brighter pieces (or sequin ones) with open arms, there’s something for everybody! It’s not something just for littel kids anymore! Here are some of my favorite picks I’ve found over the last week. I will definitely be rocking this trend all summer long. Will you?

Mint Condition

This dress combines all my favorite spring trends into one fantastic piece!


Dress: Saylor / Jacket: Old Navy / Shoes: Steve Madden / Purse: Like Dreams (similar)

What happens when you combine stripes, mint and bright colorful embroidery? You get one very happy girl, that’s what! I knew as soon as I saw this dress that I had to wear it. When it comes to trends I tend to stick with pieces that only incorporate one at a time. This piece manages to balance multiple trends (the mint, the barely-there stripes and brightly colored embroidery that’s almost rainbow)  in just the right way without being too much. It was absolutely perfect for an evening spent sipping rosé on the patio counting down the days til summer is officially here.
