Living in Arizona, I take advantage of every opportunity that I can to wear my hot pink rain boots. It was pouring one day this week, so I eagerly grabbed my rain boots and paired them with my striped shirt and pencil skirt. The boots, bag, and lipstick added the perfect pop of pink to my rainy day attire. By the way, yes the striped shirt is from the Target Girls section, that link was not a mistake. These are my favorite long sleeve tops and they’re SO inexpensive! Top: Target | Skirt: LOFT | Boots: Sperry | Crossbody: Steve Madden (similar) | Necklace: Hope’s | Lips: MAC Daddy’s Little Girl
My romper addiction grows daily. Truly, if I could wear a romper all day every day, I would. Just ask my mom, it’s that bad. This is the newest one in my collection and I’m obsessed with the fun tribal print. It’s cute, comfortable, and so summer appropriate. It’s also just long enough (a typical issue for rompers) and it has an adorable heart cut out in the back for an extra something. Fancy Pants took these amazing style photos after we got lost for 45 minutes looking for a Chase Bank in downtown San Diego, there’s always a positive to every negative right? I’d also like to share the wonderful fact that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started today and in this post, I’m sharing my purchase from the Early Access: my Rebecca Minkoff 5 Zip Mini Crossbody bag with silver hardwear. I looooove. It’s a perfect size for all of the essentials, a perfect color for year round, and a perfect price right now during the sale!!
After hearing absolutely wonderful things about The Southern Shirt Company, I placed my first order prior to heading to San Diego and I bought two of their unisex Signature Tank Tops: one for me (Neon Pink, naturally) and one for Fancy Pants (in Kiwi)! I really wanted us to have something easy to throw on at the beach and to walk around town in. These absolutely fit the bill. They were comfy 100% cotton and had that perfect casual loose “just a bit too big, but seriously cute” summer look to them. It’s right up Fancy Pants’ alley to wear a casual tank every single day if he can and I’ve been happily wearing mine as often as possible…when I’m not confined to a desk. Guaranteed, these won’t be the last ones I buy.
Happy Independence day lovelies!! I hope you’re all having a fabulously festive fourth with your friends and family! (Say that five times fast haha.) I decided to share a classic All American look with the star of the outfit being this effortless Tommy Hilfiger shirt dress. Can’t get more Americana than that. I belted it and added Jacks to complete an easy summer look for work and play! Shirt dresses are great way to look put together without making a huge effort everyday, plus they’re not stuffy in heat.
Every preppy girl loves a good critter pant or short. I’m not going to lie if I see different prints or colors, I have the urge to snatch them all up. When I saw these ankle crops at Old Navy a few months ago, I knew they would be coming home with me. I’m basically obsessed with the little lobsters. I paired it with a flowy cream peasant top and nude and white sandals. This is a great semi casual work look that still adds some color with the lobster detailing and the statement bauble.
I’ve literally become OBSESSED with silk cami’s and tank tops. I love the way they feel against your skin and how light and breezy they are (AND ALL OF THE COLORS AND PRINTS!). Perfect for summer! There’s something sexy cute about them because they’re not exactly lingerie, but they’re borderline which makes them a little scandalous to wear. Who doesn’t need a bit of scandal in their boring life? ;) I love the idea of pairing them with some cute shorts like these for a lunch or weekend mall trip. They’re also fabulous under a blazerwith some skinnies and nude pumps for a night out. I think for a date, a silk tank would be perfect tucked into a circle skirtwith a pair of wedges and a long chain necklace for some sparkle.
Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all of my mother readers! (dog moms too!) ;) Yesterday was spent in this flowy royal blue high low with my mom and brothers. We went to brunch in the morning and then just relaxed all day. It was such a good day. This color totally pops on any skin tone and I think it’s so bright and fun for summer. Plus, everything I want to wear right now is this light chiffon material because it is SO freaking hot out now.
I also wanna say thank you to my wonderful Momma who has been a constant support in my life. She is the most selfless, kind, and strong woman I know and if I could become half of the mom, half of the person she is. :)
I picked up these three winning pieces in the last week. The Olivia + Joy bag is the perfect great staple black leather bag which surprisingly I didn’t have. The perfect classic staple for any girl’s wardrobe — the navy striped dress. This one is a MUST on sale right now from Banana Republic! The ponte material keeps it form fitting and flattering combined with the elbow length sleeves. But really for me, one of my favorite purchases in a long time (how often do I say that? haha) are these pointed toe pumps. My goodness, Marshalls you win again. Clearance BCBG light pink patent pumps. These three staples pull together a completely classic year round (in Arizona) look that will never be tired.
Yellow is one of those universally “spring” colors and this dress is just so perfect for a warm day. I scooped this Lilly dress up during the sale on Rue La La and I’m in looove. It’s so comfortable and can be dressed down with Jacks or up with wedges/heels. I wore this to my baby brother’s soccer game in the morning and straight to my cousin’s babyshower in the afternoon. I honestly wish I had purchased this dress in every color because it kept me cool and it’s so adorable with the contrasting top color and patterns on the bottom! I can see me wearing this a ton for the next two seasons.
Chevron just screams fun, even for a Monday work day. I love the bright orange color that’s absolutely perfect for spring. I paired this great top with one of my new favorite pairs of work pants. If you know me, you know I’d wear leggings to work every day if I could. Well these are the closest thing I can get to leggings without ya know, being leggings. They’re comparable to the J.Crew Minnies at a fabulous Target price in a bunch of different colors. If you’re an office working girl, you must must MUST add them to your work wardrobe! I just wish they hit right at my ankle like they’re supposed to. I’m a midget practically, so cuffing is a constant. Also, these photos were brought to you by the wind. It seems that every time I wear my hair done for blog photos it’s freaking WINDY, so I look like a crazy with my hair all over the place.
