Summer 2015 Nail Polish - My Picks

Lets be real...in the past, I feel like I've worn the same color nail polish the entire Summer, which to be honest, gets really boring. The problem was that I felt all the "Summer" colors out there looked the same. Despite this past dilemma, this Summer I have made the commitment to try to wear more of a variety of colors and recently, I actually have found some uniquely colored nail polishes!

What's great about all these shades is that they are in sets, each with 4 mini nail polishes. Since I never use an entire bottle of polish, these minis are the perfect way to continue to change my polish while not spending a ton of money. Also, if you really like a specific color, they do come in full size versions! 

The first set is the new Hawaii Collection by OPI! These colors scream Summer and my favorite of the set is "That's Hula-rious," which is the pastel green color. 

The second set is called Ooh LaLa and is by Morgan Taylor. I had never heard of this brand until my friend & hairstylist Dana gave this set to me as a gift, but I'm in love! These colors are unlike any I have tried before; they are gorgeous!! Of these four, my favorite is "Postcards from Paris," which is a beautiful aquamarine color!!

Let me know if you try these colors!!

The Linen Shift Dress

Lately it seems like I've been hearing all about shift dresses! While I'm totally into all things fashion (obviously), I'm not sure how I'm just now buying into this trend! Usually the dresses I wear are a little more form fitted in one spot or another, but I love the lack of shape that comes along with this style. With that being said, I'm sure that you've already guessed what today's outfit involves.

I think that this linen shift dress would be perfect if you're looking for a cute dress for the Fourth of July! It's super comfy and could even double as a swimsuit coverup! Pair it with a fun dutch braid and some sandals and you will totally be in style this 4th!

Geometric Lace

Remember when I was complaining about all that June gloom like two weeks ago?! Well, it's long gone and the heat has definitely arrived! With the warmer weather, I've found myself reaching for shorts more often, so when I found these SUPER affordable light pink ones while shopping, I couldn't resist getting them. 

What's even better is that these shorts are supposed to look wrinkled on the front, which means less ironing! I would buy these for that reason alone! Also, to go with this look, I paired this adorable geometric top from J Crew that I had my eye on for such a long time. After finding out that it was 50% off, this baby was finally mine. 

As for the bag, this cross-body was my mom's from years ago, but the leather matched perfectly with the glittered sandals I wore. I love the "vintage" look to it. It definitely gives the outfit a different vibe.

Summer Totes 2015 - My Favorites

Summer Totes

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6


While I'm so fond of my cross-body purses, in the Summer I love carrying a cute tote bag! It's so easy to just throw everything I could possibly need (yes I'm that overly prepared person) into my bag and be on my way. After much searching around, these totes definitely caught my eye and I was dying to share them with you! I'm seriously obsessed with #4! Which one is your favorite?! 

Happy Wednesday! Thanks for reading!

Sneaker Style

As much as I love cute sandals and anything heeled, some days, especially when I'm going to be doing a lot of walking, it's just comfier to throw on a pair of sneakers! For today's look, I'm rocking my white converse, which I'm currently obsessed with! I think everyone needs a pair of these...they go with practically everything! Anyways, going with the casual look, I kept jewelry to a minimum with just my DIY tassel bracelets (should I do a tutorial to show you how I made them?!) and I threw on a pair of sunglasses. 

As for the main outfit, this black and white striped t-shirt dress is seriously the comfiest thing! I never want to take it off. It's definitely a little on the shorter side though, so if you're not as daring, tuck it into a pair of denim or white shorts and you're good to go!

Dress: Brandy Melville - (from Nordstrom, not online) / Shoes: Converse / Bracelets: DIY / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Perfect Combo

To be honest, I don't even know where to begin with this outfit...it is so casual, yet I'm thinking that this may be my favorite outfit of all time that I have shared here on my blog! I can't figure out what it is about it, but I just love it. Wearing this makes me feel so chic while still remaining super comfy. The perfect combination right?!

What makes things even better is that this top is VERY soft! Trust me, you will love the way it feels. It's a little long though, so I tucked it into these super cute denim shorts. Lately, I have been loving wearing my shirts in this fashion because it can spice up an outfit with minimum effort! Give it a try! 

Top: Brandy Melville / Shorts: Hudson Jeans / Sandals: Tory Burch / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Bracelet: Kate Spade / Floppy Hat (old, similar here): Topshop / Cross-body (light pink sold out, similar): Old Navy & Forever 21

Get a Jump On 4th of July

Get a Jump On 4th of July

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8


Every store I've been to lately has been full of red, white & blue! I'm not complaining here because I totally love being patriotic, but I'm taking it as a sign that we all better jump on getting ready for the 4th! I've been in that situation before where I go to get all things "America" a couple days before and it's all sold out. It was terrible. With that being said, I'm definitely going in search of these items and more very soon. Let me know your must-haves for the holiday! 

As always, thanks for reading!

Romper Love

Every once in a while, I find an article of clothing that I just can't get enough of, a piece that I would love to wear a couple days in a row (don't worry, I didn't actually wear it consecutive days, but a girl can dream right?!). I'm sure we've all experienced this at one point or another and for me this time around, that item can in the form of a patterned blue romper! It truly was love at first sight with this piece and after seeing the price tag, I knew it had to be mine! I know, I know, I'm being a little dramatic, but hey this fashion lover is always looking for a good bargain.

Also, mirrored sunglasses are totally trending right now! I think they are so fun for Summer and a great way to add a pop of color to an outfit. Plus, they look super cute in Instagram pictures for those insta addicts out there like myself ;)

Just Fruity

Lately the weather has been super cloudy and actually a bit chilly! Being the sunshine loving girl that I am, this weather is a total bummer, but today, despite the June gloom, I went for a fun and slightly colorful look. The lack of sunshine isn't going to stop me from incorporating Summery pieces into my wardrobe!  

This fruit tank top is adorable! I think it would be super cute to wear on a tropical vacation and though I actually purchased it from J. Crew last Summer, J. Crew Factory has an almost identical one available for under $25!! While I paired it with denim jeans, this tank would also look good with white jeans or even shorts! If you have this tank or purchase it, let me know how you style it! I love hearing from you all. 

Top (J Crew, old, almost identical here): J. Crew Factory / Cardigan: BP. / Jeans: Hudson Jeans / Shoes: Vince Camuto / Sunglasses: BP. / Watch: Michael Kors / Bracelet: Kate Spade / Fedora: (BP., old, similar here): BP. 

Thanks for reading! Have a happy weekend!
