Pop of Neon

Pants & Heels: Charlotte Russe // Top: Express // Blazer: Topshop // Flower Pin: H&M // Belt & Wristlet: Target // Earrings: Vintage // Lipstick: Revlon

This look is all about the details. What started out as a 'simple' black and white look, quickly became super amped up by mixing in the leopard belt, neon flower, and yes--I took it as far to wear an almost identical printed wristlet that practically camouflaged into my pants. It was too fun not to, and we all know I have a major polka dot problem. :-) 

I hope everyone is having a great week, I can't believe tomorrow is already Friday-WOO!

Palm Trees and Polka Dots

 Shorts, Jacket, & Top: Forever 21 // Bag: Urban Outfitters // Shoes: Asos // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Earrings: Target // Lipstick: Covergirl 

Being a California gal through and through, I am in love with anything colorful, sunny or beach related, which is why I am completely obsessed with this palm tree tee. If I can't physically be at the beach, I might as well wear one, right? 

I've also been trying to branch out with new summer hairstyles, and this one was ridiculously easy to do and only took me about 10 minutes--I promise one of these days I will get video tutorials going...cross my heart!

What are your go-to hairstyles for summer?

Peace, Love, and Fashion

 Skirt: Target // Blouse & Necklace & Cuff: Forever 21 // Headband: H&M // Shoes: Ann Taylor (On sale in my Poshmark Closet) // Sunglasses: RayBan // Lipstick: Maybelline

While most of you know this more 'boho' look isn't really my style, I love switching things up and trying things I normally wouldn't...and not going to lie--this outfit was super fun to wear (and perfect for a messy hair day). I did, however, get quite the stares at Starbucks and from some corporate folks near work, but I just held my hippie-esque head high and twirled along in this skirt. 

Lastly, while I seriously love the shoes in this post, they are just a wee bit too high for me so I decided to sell them! They deserve a better home, so shop for them in my Poshmark Closet!

Summer Work Wear

Jeans: Forever 21 // Blouse: Target // Blazer: Topshop // Sunglasses: Karen Walker via Poshmark // Shoes: Aldo via Poshmark // Handbag: Alexander Wang via Poshmark // Lipstick: Maybelline 

The fact that I can still wear this kind of outfit during summer is definitely one of the reasons I love California. With brisk, and sometimes overcast mornings, a light jacket is definitely needed to head out the door to work, but once the afternoon hits, the sun is shining...and so is my sweating face. HA. #notcute

That's why I've been gravitating towards fuss-free outfits that work for the chilly mornings AND toasty afternoons- hence simple skinny jeans, flowy blouse and fun heels. Speaking of heels- I just scored this neon/neutral Aldo pair off Poshmark practically brand new for $35. Winning!

Let's do this, Monday!

Occasional Badass

 Camo Tee: Nordstrom // Jeans and Jacket: Forever 21 // Heels: Express via Poshmark (Brand New for $35!) // Sunglasses: Asos // Bag: Alexander Wang // Lipstick: Maybelline Vivids

Sometimes you just want to feel like a badass, even you are the farthest thing from one, right?

That's what I love about fashion, you can be feminine and flirty one day, and a badass chick the next.

Summer Prints: Totally Tropical

 Shorts: H&M // Denim Jacket: Target // Shoes & Sunnies: Asos // Clutch: Poshmark // Lipstick: Wet n Wild // Bangles: Forever 21

When I purchased these shorts about two years ago, I knew they would be in heavy rotation...but little did I know that they would be my go-to pair summer after summer. The lightweight material, bright tropical floral print, and slightly higher waist style is the perfect combo of comfort and fun! 

And remember my excitement last week when I ordered these pumps? Well, they are just as lovely as I imagined, and thought they were the perfect finishing touch to this look!

Casual Monday

 Shorts, Necklace & T-shirt: Forever 21 // Blazer: Target // Bag and Flats: Asos // Sunglasses: Karen Walker via Poshmark 

My Monday mornings always require coffee, an easy hairstyle, coffee, and flats. 

Did I mention coffee? ;-)
