Pink & Oversized..two of my favorite things.

 As we sneak closer into the chillier weather most of us will be mixing pieces from both our summer and fall wardrobe. From shorts and booties, jeans and short sleeve tee’s, or as in today’s case shorts and an oversized sweatshirt…the combinations are endless…so don’t put away your summer attire just yet.

This high neck sweatshirt is a perfect transitioning piece. I love anything oversized and especially turtlenecks!! I added shorts a floral statement necklace with crystals because hey, it isn’t fall just yet!! Shop this look below:

Lilly Lover

Romper:Lilly Pulitzer|Bow:Lilly Pulitzer|Bag:J.Crew (similar)|Sunnies:J.Crew

When I was younger I lived in everything and anything Lilly Pulitzer. As I got a little older, I grew away from it a bit…but sometimes when you step into a Lilly store it is just too hard not to fall in love all over again. When you wear bright colors, patterns, and prints it definitely affects your mood. It makes it impossible not to be happy and have fun no matter what you are doing.

For all of my Lilly lovers…the romper is a must have. Unfortunately, the one I have on today is no longer available online, but there are so many others that are just as adorable. To complete my look I added a straw bag, white sunnies, put my hair in a topknot and clipped in a Lilly bow. Shop below:

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.



Pretty Picnic

It's the weekend!!!

Wow, I cannot believe the summer is flying by and in a few days it will be August. It is such a short season!!! On the upside however, I will be going on vacation very soon so I have been getting ready for that, making my last few purchases. One new item I got was a camera. Knowing my photographer was not going to be around I wanted to start taking some shots on my own. No comparison to the work he does, not by a long shot. I have a lot to learn and I think I just might be in over my head but I'll get there. I have pretty much kept things only about the clothes but I figured if I am going to continue on with this venture then it's time to start opening myself up so, coming up on two years now, that will be one of things to look for. I want my followers to be able to relate to me not just what I am wearing. All suggestions gratefully accepted.

Today I kept it pretty simple, just wearing shorts and a tee but, I wanted to share my new picnic basket and blanket that I got from Joss & Main. I have wanted these items for awhile now and the price was right. I love spending the afternoon relaxing in the park and just taking in what's going on around me. Hope you enjoy!!! Have a great weekend everyone. Shop links below:

Pom Pom

I was shopping online recently and found these allover pom-pom overalls. I just had to get them because they were so different and cute, especially with the fringe along the bottom. Originally I wanted to pair them with pink but when I tried on this yellow top and then added the necklace it just felt like a breath of fresh air. After trying on a few different pair of sandals, I decided to go with these simple Kate Spade slip on's, they have a bit of fray to them, so I figured what a perfect match and the stones across the top are adorable. This is one of my favorite looks so far for the season. Simple, casual and cute…can't go wrong. I've also been doing some thinking about the things I wear and I've decided that I want to invest a little more in accessories to punch up my outfits. Where I would usually wear my David Yurman, I have started adding chunkier fun pieces of jewelry, purchasing a few new scarves and belts, plus I am just loving boater hats. Let's see where the summer takes me style wise, change is good and I want to try some new things. Let me know if you have any ideas or if there is anything in particular you would like to see. I always appreciate your thoughts and all of your support.
