Spring patterns have sprung and I just cannot get enough! The best part?!

Laces Out

Talk about a short week?! It feels like Monday still….

As some of you may already know I am out East for the entire month of July!!  The other morning I really wasn’t feeling well or myself at all so I decided to come home for a little and spend some time with my family.

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.

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,

Flower Power

Shorts:Alice and Olivia| Top:Theory| Jacket: Nicholas (now on sale)| Sandals:Stuart Weitzman|Choker:Asos|Bracelets:David Yurman,David Yurman,Vita Fede

Todays outfit consists of these Alice and Olivia white shorts and this silk black top. When I add my gladiator sandals and this Nicholas floral biker jacket the outfit takes on a new and dramatic look. Biker jackets, which have become a wardrobe staple of the millennium, have changed drastically over the years. Designers are adding everything from prints to embellishments, and just by pulling in a few different things…be it a hat, belt, jewelry, or shoes a look can completely change. I am all about a choker these days, and absolutely love what this multi-row festival-esque necklace brings to the outfit.
