LBS





Crop Top Screen Tee: Forever 21. Cut-Off Shorts: American Eagle. Black, Strappy Heels: Candies. Necklace: Old. Clutch: Ross Dress for Less. Bangles: Target.  









Am I wrong for assuming that every girl out there has that perfect, go-to LBD (little black dress) hidden away in the corner of her closet?, you know that one knock-out dress that's tucked away for those special occasions with the beau or as a very last resort wedding dress? Wellll if you don't own a LBD, I'm almost certain you have to own a cute pair of LBS (little black shoes.) I probably own way more pairs of black strappy sandals than is considered normal, but these have to be one of my favorites! They hug my little feet just perfectly, and they give this little shorty a good couple inches of height. Ha! A pair of little black shoes is just as essential as having the perfect, little black dress. When picking out my heels, I always keep comfort, versatility, price, quality and of course, style in mind. What do you guys look for when purchasing your heels? I pairedthese edgy black heels with my jean cutoffs, and rocker crop-top, muscle tee...which y'all know I love so much. I bought this tee a couple weeks ago for the Justin Timberlake concert, which was absolutely PHENOMENAL. Love me some JT. This look is perfect for summer concerts. It's a mix between sophisticated, and edgy. I think the floral kimono gives it a little bit of a boho chic touch, which I'm definitely a fan of. What concerts have you guys gone to this summer?

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 ;)

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!

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!

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?
