World Tour

Bomber:Forever21|Sweater:Forever21|Leggings:Alice and Olivia (older)|Boots:Stuart Weitzman

Nowadays, there’s a bit of a rock n’ roll streak running through the lines of several brands. The Ramones, Kiss, ACDC…etc. Fashion’s finest are taking to the streets in rock band t-shirts and jackets, and tearing their items to shreds for an edgier feel. It couldn’t be more true how everything comes back in style.

I found this padded bomber featuring an embroidered ACDC graphic on the chest and printed world tour logo on the back. You could wear it with jeans and a tee for a laid back feel or pair it with leggings as I did today. Underneath a layered knit with a drawstring cowl neck adds a little more warmth. It also is available in a few other colors. 

Wow

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I posted this outfit on Instagram a few days ago, so I decided to put it up on my blog because something may just surprise you!! We have seen this patch trend from the runways to the streets and on pieces ranging from forever21 to designers such as Stella McCartney, Mira Mikati, Anya Hindmarch, and even Dolce and Gabbana.

Whether you want an artsy or more edgy vibe, the decoration and emoji-style detailing will not let you down. You can wear items completely covered or maybe just have 1 or 2 graphics. Pieces from the designers mentioned above may be a bit expensive for most of us, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the fun. The sweater I have on today is under $20, and I don’t think anyone would ever even know. You can even get creative with this trend….I have seen adorable Iron on and Stick on patches…DIY!!

Below, I have linked today’s outfit and several other favorite patched pieces I have fell in love with at all price points. Thanks for stopping by today. Have an amazing weekend everyone!!

XOXO,

Firty Florals

Tee:Forever21(sold out,similar here/dress here)|Overalls:Forever21|Sandals:Birkenstock

Here is something to brighten up your Monday blues….this outfit is under $30. I originally had stopped in Forever21 and picked up a few pieces that I thought were cute and could mix with some other items I had at home. When I was paying in line I had the idea to layer this striped tee under the floral romper for a little pattern play. One trick for mixing patterns is to keep them in the same color family. Another is to treat stripes as a neutral.

I think this romper is too adorable to pass up. The red allover floral print is lush and striking and the boxy fit and adjustable straps lend you that overalls vibe. Below, I also added a few other similar pairs I love just as much. Thanks for stopping by today.

Easy Does It

Today I am mixing on trend pieces in an unexpected way. I purchased this skirt from Asos at the beginning of the summer with the feeling it was going to sell out (it did) …everything always goes super fast on that site. It is very unique with tiered ruffles and frayed hems.

I am usually such a ‘heel’ girl over flats but I have been trying to shoot more looks where I dress down apparel and make it more practical to wear during the day. With that being said, I decided to pair today’s main piece with a lightweight sleeveless knit, fedora, and classic slip-on sneakers. The allover stripes print gives the look character…making it a little polished yet also a little undone.

Below, find the links to today’s outfit. I have also incorporated similar items, cute summer tanks, and adorable alternative sneaker options that can be paired with a white skirt like this one. All items can be mixed and matched! (I am really loving the metallic sneaker and crotchet crop top combo)

XOXO,

TGIFFFFF!!

When I was shooting this look I couldn’t stop laughing and singing “workin at the car washhhh”

…Dino then said we should shoot at a car wash and that he would make it really cool…I ended the convo right there (even though I’m sure he would) Guys with their ideas…

Anyway, I have wanted a pair of these Stella McCartney platforms since they came out. They are a serious splurge, but I finally went for it. I think a majority of people have a love/hate relationship with these shoes. For guys, mostly just hate. When mine finally came and my dad first saw them his first response was “what are those…….?”

Personally, I just love them and that’s all that matters to me! They are a mix of trendy and classic, and have height and traction. I originally thought I wanted a black pair with a black bottom, but I thought the burgundy would look so good in the fall. I have them pictured in my head with boyfriend jeans and oversized sweaters.

Today I paired them with a denim utility romper unbuttoned with a striped tee…effortless, cool, and comfortable…with just a hint of disco.  

Reach for your platforms this weekend and dance your troubles away!!

XOXO,
