Knit & Topstich

Think stripes, grids, patterns, and in today’s case even topstitch.  The technique once used strictly for seams, is now also used as a decorative element.

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.

Rainy days are here (unfortunately) but that should never prevent you from looking your best! One accessory to make sure you have this time of year is definitely a cute umbrella. There are so many adorable options and they aren’t your average accessory you need to splurge on. You can find them at so many different stores at a low price. I personally recommend to check out Kate Spade…they are under $40 and so fun!!

I have been searching everywhere for a pair of cute white short overalls…something I thought that would be super easy…but it wasn’t. I finally found a pair at Madewell that weren’t too distressed and not too long. I decided to pair them with a striped tee, a hooded coat, and rain boots (another necessity). You can always stay cute no matter what the weather decides to throw at you! Shop today’s look 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.

Grown up Grunge

‘Grunge’ is a style that has been around for years. It is about being casual and comfortable, yet there is just something about it that gives your look an edgier vibe. Whether it be layering, an oversized piece, statement tee, plaid shirt, or military boots….something that gives your outfit an effortless and tough blend.


Today I mixed combat boots with baggier black overalls, a green puffer jacket, and scarf around my neck for a subtle grungy street look. You can shop my look below:
