Stars and Stripes

Wow.  It’s been a hot minute since I’ve put up a new blog post.  To be honest, life has been crazy busy the last couple of weeks, and I just needed a bit of a break.  But it feels great to be back today and I am so excited to be bringing you a little outfit inspiration for the 4th of July!!!  Can you believe that the 4th is less than one week away?  I know I can’t.  For me, the 4th of July will always be the official kick off to summer, and I can’t wait to celebrate all weekend long!!

Top (DownEast Outfitters, check in store), also love this, this, this, this, and this | Shorts | Necklace | Hat | Sunnies | Platforms, also love these

Thank you guys so much for stopping by!  Hope you’re having a great week!

Neck Candy

Another day, another off-the-shoulder number.  I just can’t seem to help myself when it comes to this trend!  Plus, it’s the perfect neckline to show off my pretty new necklace from French Kande.  Seriously, their jewelry is my FAVORITE.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, trust me, you NEED to!  Oh, and I should mention that my dress is less than $50 too!!

Alright, so if you are curious about LikeToKnow.It (LTK), here is the scoop so you can shop all of your favorite Instagram posts just by hitting the “like” button:

  • All you have to do is go to their website (here), and sign up using your email (you only have to do this ONE time).
  • Every time you “like” a photo on Instagram that has an LTK link on it (I’m sure you have noticed these links on photos), you will get an email with all of the links to the product featured-making it super easy to shop! 
  • Your LTK account will save all of the photos that you have liked, so you can always log into your account to go back and find something-or use it as a compilation of outfit inspiration.
  • The reason why bloggers use LikeToKnow.It?  Besides making it easy for you guys to shop our posts, if you purchase something using one of those links in the email, the blogger makes a small commission.  And commissions are one of the main ways that bloggers make money.

I hope that helps!  If you have any more questions about LTK or how it works, please feel free to reach out and let me know!

Midi

I am on the short side at 5’3″, so I tend to shy away from midi-style dresses and skirts.  Because of my smaller stature, longer lengths typically tend to swallow me up and not be particularly flattering.  But because it’s a style I love, I do keep trying it in different silhouettes and prints as the seasons change, hoping to find something that will work for me.  And this spring,  I FINALLY found a midi-dress that is not only comfy and has pockets, but the print and style actually work well for my shorter frame.

Off Shoulder

I have to tell you guys, I am pretty much obsessing over the off-the-shoulder trend.  This is definitely going to be a go-to style for me this season.  Plus, how cute is the print on this top?  So fun for Spring (and Summer)!

Happy weekend!!!!

Summer Fashion Hacks

There are two things I am really into this summer: destroyed boyfriend shorts with heels, and orange lipstick.  And for whatever reason, I seriously can’t seem to get enough either!  Maybe it’s because together or alone, they both give the perfect balance of making you look like you tried, even if you really didn’t.  And I’m here to tell you, that I’ll take advantage of any fashion hacks that come my way during the summer months!

Sweater: Express (on sale for 40% off in lots of colors, there is also a gray color here!) | Shorts: Rag & Bone (on sale!), also love these | Necklaces: Stella & Dot (here and here) | Cuff: House of Harlow | Ring: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Hat: JCrew | Bag: Tory Burch | Wedges: Nordstrom (under $55 during the #Nsale and really comfy-they also come in black!)
Lipstick: Stila Stay-All-Day Lipstick in Carina

Is it bad that’s only Tuesday and I already can’t wait for the weekend?  I don’t want to wish my summer away, but I just want to play!  lol

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends!

Repeat

Ok guys, I have a confession to make.  A lot of times when it comes to fashion, I can be rather boring.  When I find an outfit combo that works, I often times just continue to repeat it, or slight variations of it (over and over).  Take today’s post for example.  I love the way this dress looks back to denim and a pop of neon, and if you remember this post, then today’s outfit might look awfully familiar to you.  In all honesty though, I think it’s smart to remix your wardrobe-particularly if you are on a clothing budget or don’t love to shop.  And dresses are a great starting piece that are easy to wear over and over in lots of different variations across multiple seasons…

Casual

J and I are officially on vacation this week.  Hooray!  And because we are road tripping from Utah to Montana, and will be spending our time on the water, in Glacier National Park, biking, and hanging with family and friends, my attire for the week is going to be pretty casual.  In fact, most days you will probably find me in something pretty similar to today’s outfit: a comfy worn-in tee, destroyed denim shorts, casual wedges, minimal makeup and jewelry, and less than styled hair.  And so today, I thought I’d show you a glimpse of the “everyday” me and hopefully provide some inspiration for what to wear in your real, everyday summer casual life!

Happy Monday!

Layers

At the end of summer, I am never ready to put away any of my pretty dresses. So I always love to look for ways to prolong their use into the early fall season. And I have to say, that an army surplus vest, back to cognac accessories, seems to do just the trick…

Tie One On

I think it’s safe to say that this look is going to be a staple for me this summer. Since chambray shirts are always on constant rotation in my closet, it’s no wonder that I am loving the new sleeveless version hitting stores right now. And I’m particularly loving them when tied and worn over pretty summer dresses. A look that’s polished and sweet-but easy as one, two, three…
