Stars, Stripes & MTV




Vintage Screen Tee: Delias. Acid Wash Denim: Target. Necklace: Francesca's. Leopard Booties: Sam & Libby Collection at Target.

Happy Memorial Day lovelys!!  I'm so grateful for all of those who have fought and continue to fight for our country. A special shout out to my handsome daddy who served in the Gulf War. I am so blessed by his spirit to serve not only our country but my family day in and day out. If you are reading this daddy-I love you! 
I hope that you guys have enjoyed the beautiful weather! It feels good to soak up the suns rays and just RELAX! I took these pics a while back but figured that the All-American MTV screen tee was fitting for the holiday. I got this tee from Delias when they were going out of business...I think I only paid $5 for it? I love screen tees-they are the perfect staple for any casual look! I played up my outfit with textures and animal print! I love these acid wash denim jeans from Target-they are so retro and vintage! And being a lover of all things animal print, these booties get their fair share of shine in my wardrobe ;) What have you guys been up to this Memorial Day?

Summer Days Ahead




Denim Dress: Forever 21. Similar Here. Shoes: Chuck Taylors. White Leather Studded Clutch: Ross. Similar Here. Fedora (Old).


It's been a minute since I've posted! Sorry friends! No worries though, I'm back with a super, cute outfit post just in time for Memorial Day! It's officially that time of year for BBQ's, long pool days, warm summer nights, Firecracker popsicles (those are my absolute fav!) and more. We definitely skipped right over spring, and summer has arrived! This classic, denim flared dress paired with my high top Chucks is the perfect, simple ensemble for summer days that I have long awaited. If I could I would live in a Fedora for the next 3 months. A cute fedora, floppy hat, or baseball cap are an easy go-to accessory  for days at the pool or beach. Not only are they stylish, but they protect your skin from the sun's rays. Aint nobody got time to be sun burnt or dealing with the aftermath of too much sun. What kind of styles and fashions will you guys be wearing this Memorial Day?

Denim & Stripes

Maxi Dress: The Gap. Distressed Denim Vest:  JCPenny. Clutch: The Buffalo Exchange. Nude Wedges: Charlotte Russe. 

So, I somehow managed to get my boyfriend to snap some blog pics for me while he was in town a couple of weeks ago...it could of been the twinkle in my eye lol or my irresistible BIG smile ha! Totally kidding. Whatever it was, he did a pretty good job acting as my photographer that day! Thanks babe :) MAJOR brownie points, right ladies?! That day, the weather was particularly cool, but I had my mind set on wearing something simple, comfortable, cute, flowy and springy because it was so dreary! and just like always I went for the maxi dress! Go figure. My boyfriend actually picked out this super comfy, striped knit maxi from The Gap. It was a just because gift and those are always the best gifts. He's super thoughtful and I'm so thankful for him. I love everything about it. The length was perfect, and the fact that the sleeves are three quarter length made it warm enough to wear that day. I love me some stripes almost as much as I love me some prints! I paired it with my favorite distressed denim vest, and a simple pair of nude wedges. Happy Friday!
