Vacation All I Ever Wanted

vaction post

Hello fine people. I wanted to apologize for the lack of post yesterday and explain that I will not be posting anything new for the rest of the week. I am not exactly away but I'm taking a few personal days to wrap up some things at home. I'm doing a little reorganizing/redecorating in my room this week and I want to give it my full attention. The good news is I will be taking pictures of the work in progress to share with you all next week (hopefully it turns out the way I want or next week's post won't exactly go as planned). Have a good week and get some sun (I'll be doing a little of that too).

Beachy Accessories

Beachy Accessories


Well today's post is going to be short, sweet and let's be honest here, half-assed. I apologize I'm just running low on time today. I leave you with my collection of beach related accessories that have come from my recent polyvore collages. I hope you enjoy them and have a good weekend! I'm off to work! 

Cameron Rocks Denim

Take outfit cues from Cameron


Denim on denim outfits are always a bit of a risk, they can go from stylish to unfortunately match-y. Cameron stays on the stylish side with her light denim jacket and dark denim skinny jeans. The bright bag adds just the right touch of color. The look comes off as fresh and cool. Pair it with pumps for a touch of glam or sandals to keep things low key.

Summer Style Tips: Traveling

travel in style

Yesterday my sister and I were talking vacation plans for the summer and I was inspired to do a couple posts on some outfit ideas for such an occasion. I've never been one to back lightly but usually it's necessary (especially if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg on baggage costs). In order to make sure you don't over pack you should always plan out your wardrobe for the length of your stay (be sure to add in what you may need for a change in weather). My first look will cover your trip from the very beginning - the actual traveling.

Whether your going to be sitting in a plane or a car for a long period of time you need to dress comfy. However, this doesn't mean you have to look like a slob. One of the most comfortable and automatically chic pieces a girl can wear is a maxi dress. They are simple, effortless and always look fashionable. Pair it with a cozy cardigan in case the air conditioning is set too high for your comfort and a hat to put on once you've awoken from your nap (car/plane seat hair is never a good look). Keep your jewelry simple, I usually go with just studs and a watch (so I can keep track of just how long it will be until I arrive at my destination). Sunglasses are an obvious must and make sure you have a big enough carry-on bag to hold the essentials (which you can do without sacrificing style). Make sure you pack a lip gloss and a little face powder so you can look refreshed and beautiful as soon as you step off the plane!

Style Like The Stars: Blazer Beauty


Welcome to another week ladies! I hope you all had a fun weekend and enjoyed Father's Day with your family, I know I did. 

At the beginning of the summer I did a post on how to style a bright blazer in the summer. Today I got a little inspiration from Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria and decided to show you some options for bright summer blazers. Above are a bunch of options for beautiful blazers in a wide array of colors. Blazer's are not just meant for the working girl (though any of these would look cute at the office) they add sophistication to any outfit. Paired with shorts, jeans, dresses or skirts, blazers instantly streamline an outfit. What's your favorite?

Date Night Outfit Three: Dinner and Drinks

date night outfit three: night on the town

Hi guys! I'm gonna keep this post short and sweet (mostly because I just got home from work and I'm exhausted and hungry). As my final date night look I wanted to go a little bit dressy. This look is perfect for a night out (think dinner and dancing). I LOVE adding teal accents to almost everything in the summer and this is no exception. The top of the dress is plain enough that I'd suggest either doing a chunky necklace (like the one on the left) and studs or a simple one (shown on the right) with a larger earring like the hoops. 

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! xo.
