Flirty Prints & Fedora Hats

Printed Shorts: JCrew. Black Crop Top: Forever 21. Black Studded Crossbody: Ross Dress for Less. Shoes: Platos Closet. Fedora: Old.






There is nothing like a staple, go-to summer hat. This fedora is definitely my favorite little accessory to give any little outfit the perfect touch of summer sass! These printed JCrew shorts are by far my favorite pair of shorts that I own! Unlike most jean cuts, these are super flowy, lightweight and also give you the versatility to dress them up or dress them down! It's always key when shopping to purchase pieces where you can easily do both, and I think that's why I love these so much. I paired these printed shorts, with a classic black crop top which gives the look a little smidge of edge, and these strappy black sandals. What are some of your favorite staple accessories for the summer?

Turquoise






Maxi Dress: Ross Dress for Less. Gold Metallic Sandals: Old Navy. Watch: Guess. Bangles: Old Navy





While the temps are at an all time high in the Carolinas, I'm dreaming of a vacay in Greece! It's on my bucket list to travel to one of the most beautiful places I've ever laid eyes on via Google images of course ha! The people, the food, the place- I want to experience everything Greece has to offer. One day! But until then, I'll just close my eyes and pretend while I stroll the town in this gorgeous turquoise Maxi. Oh my goodness, I'm in love with everything about it! Especially being that turquoise is my favorite color and for some reason I just feel like a Greek Goddess would totally wear this! By now, you guys know that touches of gold accessories are my go to. I actually found these gold metallic sandals at Old Navy a couple of weekends ago for like $7. And yes, it made my heart happy. Such a great find! The puffed sleeves give me that kind of seventies vibe, which just makes this dress an all around modern summer classic. I'll definitely be getting my fair wear out of it ;)

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?

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?
