Scalloped Style






Scalloped Romper: Marshalls. Snakeskin Clutch: Target. Floral Pumps: Guess via Off Broadway Shoes. Necklace: Target. Earrings: Francescas Ring: BCBG



This spicy, scalloped romper is pretty much amazing! I love what a scalloped hemline can do to a simple article of clothing. A scalloped hemline is much more playful and gives that particular article of clothing, whether it be a pencil skirt, or crop top just a little bit more umph and detail than a straight lined hem. For me, summer is all about bright, and bold colors! It's the perfect way to show off that summer glow! Shades of corally reds, cobalt blues and hot pinks have been my favorite for this summer! And you can't go wrong when you get to combine all of your favorite summer colors together in one gorgeous pump! Aren't they adorable?!! Since the romper is bold but still maintains one basic color throughout, these shoes are the perfect way to set off the color and add a little bit of personality to your outfit! How do you guys feel about the scalloped trend this summer?

Neutrals & More of YOU Monday Motivation









Jumpsuit: Marshalls. Shoes: Fergie via Ross Dress for Less. Snakeskin Clutch: Target.  Necklace: Pop Up Shop (can't remember the name, sorry!) Similar: Here. Lipgloss: Maybelline New York The Elixir in Fuchsia Flourish. 
Happy Monday!! I hope that everyone had a fabulous weekend. I'm a firm believer that the next best thing to a cute little romper, is a FIERCE jumpsuit! This is a Marshall's #fabfind that I scored a couple of months ago, and I'm absolutely in love with how adorable this look came together. Neutrals are a great color palette to play with especially in the summer. There's nothing better than feeling light, airy and playful in a cute summer get up.The color combo of black and cream in this floral number is perfect for any summer night outing, or could easily be paired with a fitted black blazer for work. 

Here's to a new day and a new week to live life! Live according to your own standards, and not according to the standards of others. This is something that I'm still learning, even as a 25 year old. We're all learning in this thing called life. Shine with purpose today, because there is purpose for your life. Be bold in what sets you apart from others, because there is no one like YOU!;) Here are some of my favorite quotes that I've been keeping top of mind. Hope you enjoy!

Floral Frenzy


Floral Patterned Dress: Five13Studio. Shoes: Off Broadway Shoes Nude Jessica Simpson Julez Heel. Crossbody Bag: Forever 21. Watch: Michael Kors.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again! I'm obsessed with floral prints for this season! Being a pattern lover at heart, I just couldn't say no to this new, fun trend. I scored this cute number last summer from Five 13 Studio, one of my favorite online boutiques. I love all of the unique pieces they have to offer. You get the boutique experience but at the convenience of shopping in your jammies- what could be better?! The fit of this dress is everything!! And the pops of neon color paired with the floral pattern make it one of a kind! They don't sell this particular dress anymore but be sure to shop their other styles. I promise you won't be disappointed! Since this dress is so busy, I kept it light, simple and classic with my accessories with this nude Crossbody snakeskin bag and my Jessica Simpson nude Julez heels. How are you guys styling your florals this summer?

Bubble Gum Pink & Bold Blues




Distressed Cut-Off Shorts: Old. Similar:Here. Creme Crossbody Bag: Forever 21.  White Collared Top: Guess. Hot Pink Blazer: H&M. Julez Heels: Jessica Simpson. Pearl Necklace: Old. Similar: Here. 


Happy Tuesday everyone! Sorry it's been a minute since I've posted- life has been cray! But I'll be posting more regularly for the weeks to come. I mentioned a couple of posts ago that I was able to join in on the fun at my very first blogging event hosted by Off Broadway Shoes. I purchased three pairs of spring/summer shoes and these Jessica Simpson Julez heels definitely make my list of faves. Pops of color are hot for this summer, so this cute little blue shoe is the perfect way to make any summer outfit pop! AND they come in several different other colors, you can shop here. Although it's a tad bit too warm to be rocking a blazer, I just couldn't resist pairing this hot pink with the electric blue. Plus, the cut-off distressed denim balance out the combo for a warm summer evening date night, or for a night out on the town. Get bold and brave! Have fun with pops of color this summer!

More of YOU Mondays: Maya's Inspiration


Happy Monday! I cannot believe that it's already June. We're already half way through 2014-so crazy! I was so saddened last week to hear that Maya Angelou passed away. Although I didn't know her personally, through her words I felt like my soul and my heart knew her. Her words had the ability to penetrate and speak to matters of the heart. One of my favorite poems by Dr. Angelou is "Phenomenal Woman." I love the empowerment and beauty that the poem gives to women and I admire Dr. Angelous perspective that beauty is so much more than the outward appearance. There is no doubt that Maya Angelou will be missed by many. I'm thankful that we have the gift of her words which will live on forever.
