Summer Stylin': Classics

As promised, with summer here, I've returned to the blog-o-sphere!
I'm starting to realize that I've been a little print crazy lately-- not that there's anything wrong with that! But sometimes it's nice to just go back to the basics: a solid summer dress in a vibrant color paired with some chic sandals, a classic straw bag and a fun hat to keep the sun away from your face. 
I've loved Jessica from What I Wore's "Coral Crush" look for a long time and when she posted it as a "Ready to Repeat" on Pinterest I definitely agreed!
check out What I Wore here!

And here are a few other ways to style this look:
summer classics.

Shoe of the Week: Sparkle Sandals!

To continue with the trend of ignoring the actual weather outside and pretending it is still Sunny with a High of 75, this week's shoe of the week is the Sparkly Sandal!!!
I am so excited about this (Sparkles, duh!) that I couldn't pick just one shoe, I picked three!
Naturally we will start with the most luxurious, expensive sandal and progress towards the least expensive and most practical. 

I am not even exaggerating when I say that this is the glitter sandal of my dreams. Not to mention all the other glittery sandals J Crew has this season (Sparkles, whoa!). 

Next up is Anthropologie's Banded Mercury Toeloop Slides. I'm actively willing these to go on sale, I feel like even just a 20-30% off sale would make them in the affordable, sandal investment range. They are so fun with the sparkly fringe but still neural enough to pair with patterns and prints. 

And never to be ignored in a list of shoes, Target is up to bat with the Xhilaration Lavada Slide Sandal! These are the perfect combination of neutral and sparkle and for less than $20 you can bet that these will be on my feet this summer! 
Thanks for reading everyone,
And have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!

Spring & Summer Style: Maxi Skirt Maven

Maxi Skirts. I feel like maxi skirts and maxi dresses carry with them the ultimate 'this is so cute but can I pull it off???' feeling. I've decided that I can indeed pull them off and now I want all the maxi skirts and dresses. 
They are the epitome of effortless summer, easy breezy and super cute!
I've always loved stripes (but really...) and when Krystal of This Time Tomorrow wore this casual-chic outfit last summer I instantly loved it. Well guess what? There is a very very similar skirt online at Target right now! Go, go get it!
