Cool for the Summer





Striped Jumpsuit: Target found here. Shoes: Nordstrom Rack -BCBG found here

with Fall literally right around the corner, you would think that the temps would start to cool down by now but its been the exact opposite. I'm anxiously awaiting the moment when the air turns crisps and stays that way so that I can pull out all the cute Fall sweaters and tweed blazers that I recently purchased and have been dying to wear! Am I the only one? In the meantime, I've been holding onto some of my summer, closet staples like this striped jumpsuit that I recently purchased from Target. I layered it with my favorite, distressed denim jacket which is sure to make several more appearances as I start to style and shoot some Fall looks. I've been a little MIA over the past couple of months due to recently starting a new job! I plan on getting back into my regular routine and swing of things but thanks so much for following along and bearing with me! Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons, mainly because the scenery here in the Carolina's is absolutely gorgeous with the trees changing and the leaves on the ground. I cannot wait! We're ready when you are, Fall! What are you most excited for, for Fall?

Natural










The natural scenery during spring and summer has to be one of my favorite things about the warmer months. That, and eating watermelon on the porch while reading a good book! Spring and Summer in North Carolina are the absolute best...the southerly breeze and clear blue skies during the day and the warm summer, star-filled nights are pure perfection. 

As the days warm up, I have the freedom to get back into my wash n go natural hair routine without risking getting a cold! This is my go-to hairstyle on the weekends when the humidity is unbearable, and when I don't want to spend hours straightening my hair just for it to poof back up. This past weekend was cloudy and rainy, and it was super quick to do my normal wash routine, add some of the products I love and just go. My favorite products are from the Shea Moisture line. I've  been natural for almost 3 years now and, have over my natural hair journey become more and more confident in my curls and have learned to feel beautiful in my natural skin. I'll be doing a blog post about the products I use in the future so stay tuned! 

This outfit is perfect for both work, church and play. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite natural hues- there is just nothing like it! And chambray is a basic staple that will be sure to go with any and every piece you own in your closet. I've been wearing these Marc Fischer lace up heels with all of my spring outfits and felt like my dollars were well spent adding them to my wardrobe. I promise you'll feel the same way! What are some of your favorite things about the spring/summer season?

Eyelet



Pants: H&M found here. Top: Marshalls. Shoes: Old- Steve Madden via Belk. Bag: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack.












One of the things I look forward to about each week is casual Friday. I love waking up on Friday knowing it's the weekend and knowing I don't have to give my outfit any extra thought because it's usually just dark denim and a cute top. But then there's Thursday, you know...Friday eve! By Wednesday, my fancy schmancy workwear is all tapped out, and all I want is to be comfortable but cute. These H&M printed slim fit pants are everything!! They are comfortable, cute and the pattern is unique and playful. Not to mention, the price I got them for is *emoji praise hands* - they were only $15. I mean, how could I not buy these in every color/pattern! The ones I'm wearing are sold out, but I've linked the same pant in different patterns up top. They are lightweight and definitely corporate friendly. I paired them with this gorgeous eyelet white top from...you guessed it! Marshalls. I love how crisp, and summer fresh it is and that I'll be able to pair it with a number of skirts and shorts during the upcoming summer season.

MDW Style



Floral Print Romper: Jessica Simpson via Belk found here. Metallic Sandals: Candies via Kohls. Earrings: Old. 


WHAT A WEEK!! It's always the hardest to get back into the swing of things after a long holiday weekend. But thank you sweet baby Jesus it's been a shorter work week. I hope that you guys enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend. I spent it catching up with old friends, and relaxing with family which was heavenly. Probably one of my favorite parts of the weekend was getting to see my college friend and fellow blogging babe Molly! Is she not the cutest little blonde bombshell?! I remember when she first started blogging, and how obsessed I was with it then and even more so now! She truly inspired me to start my own little creative corner of the internet. You have to swing my Molly's Musings for tons of outfit inspiration and super glam braiding tutorials. It was fun snapping a couple of pics together. We both went for casual, comfy style. A cute little romper is always an easy, carefree go to look for summer time. What did you guys wear to celebrate the holiday?

White Tee

Tribal Print Skirt: Target. Shoes: Jessica Simpson Julez Heels via Off Broadway Shoes. Clutch: Ross Dress for Less. Watch: Michael Kors. White Top: Guess. Sunglasses: Platos Closet














You've been forewarned before about my love for prints! I just can't help myself. And, I definitely couldn't say no to this tribal inspired print that I snatched up at my local Target earlier this spring. I'd been contemplating what exactly to pair it with. I debated a crop top with the same pattern since 2 piece sets are all the rage this season, but that wasn't quite the look that I had envisioned. This light weight, white blouse was the perfect top. I almost forgot how important it is to have basics, like a plain white tee. I like to keep my basic colors in V-necks for a go-to casual look, or it's nice to have collard tops in your basic colors to give you that crisp, pulled together look. What I love about this white top from Guess, is that it isn't too stiff and boring. The material is extremely light-weight, soft and relaxed. I could easily get away with pairing this top with so many other fits, which is the great thing about basics. So, moral of the story always, always, always! keep basic tees, and camisoles as a part of your wardrobe ;) Enjoy your Thursday loves!

Retro Reds











Retro Red Sunnies: Target. Peplum Printed Top: Marshalls. White Cut-Off Shorts: Ross Dress for Less. Cobalt Blue Heels: Jessica Simpson via Off Broadway Shoes. Statement Earrings: Old Navy. White Clutch: Ross Dress for Less. 






Happy 4th of July Everyone!! I absolutely love all the patriotism and summer memories that the 4th of July brings. The fireworks, the cookouts, the laughter...all the above! I'm super excited to be reuniting with my college roommates to celebrate the holiday. How will you guys be celebrating? This is more of my cutesy 4th of July look- I'll most likely be in cutoff jean shorts with a pair of chucks tonight lol def no heels! But I was really feeling doing this look up with the ever popular Jessica Simpson Cobalt blue Julez heels that I just love so much! I don't care where you are, it's most likely hot and humid wherever you're going this afternoon/this evening, therefore cute, fringed cut-offs are a MUST! I've been on the lookout for a pair of crisp white cut-offs, and scored these at Ross Dress for Less. I love the aztec detail on the pockets. This peplum printed top is super light and flowy-which is also perfect for celebrating outdoors. My whole vision for this outfit was to be cute, but also comfortable and cool. You could easily dress this outfit down with a pair of gladiator sandals. And, it's definitely not the 4th of July without bold red lips, and retro red sunnies! I hope that you enjoy the holiday!

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?
