Purple Vibes

Hello loves! It’s been a while since I last did an outfit post but I am excited to start sharing my personal style again. Any ways, today’s look I did something a little different by wearing a “Cocktail/BodyCon” dress in the day time. I love bodycon dresses but I don’t like something that hugs every little curve of my body so adding a kimono was the perfect solution. This look can easily be transitioned to night as well by adding a pair of wedges or heels (or just leaving on flats 😉 ). I actually got the dress and kimono last year and was going through my closet and found that these two pieces were the perfect match. Although the dress and kimono is not in stock anymore, I linked some similar pieces and pieces I think would look great with a bodycon dress down below. I also linked similar handbags below as well. Hope you all have a fab rest of your day!

David Yurman Scented Rings

YES! You read that title correctly and this is no joke, I repeat not a joke. My all time favorite jewelry designer David Yurman, has out done himself with the “Bubblegum Pinky Collection”. These rings are not only adorable and chic but they also bring us back to our childhood; they’re scented. I’m sure I’m not the only one excited about this news, especially if you’re a HUGE Yurman fan like myself. As I was doing some surfing on the web and reading fashion articles, I stumbled upon Teen Vogue and Vanity Fair with this big news. I thought it wasn’t real at first but of course it is and you can even sign up for the pre-sale event >here<. I am in LOVE with these adorable rings and the fact that they are scented is definitely icing on the cake! As a child I remember having scented everything (almost), from markers, erasers, stickers, etc. I would have never thought that such a classic ring would be scented but it has been done ladies and gents and one of the most fabulous things I’ve seen 😉 .

Game Day Looks

Who’s ready for football season!? I know I am! Today I have put together some “Game Day” looks to kick off this season. I have geared these looks more towards the warmer days a.k.a the start to football season. I attend the University of Alabama and the South doesn’t play when it comes to dressing for football games. I always like to wear a dress or romper, especially in the first month of the season. I also added in the cutest tee for games as well because sometimes you just want to go for a casual look 😉 . Who says you can’t dress up a tee though, am I right? This “Saturday’s in Tuscaloosa” tee from ShopRiffRaff is pretty chill but can easily be dressed up with a pair of white skinny jeans or a skirt. This shirt also comes in a variety of college towns and they have other great game day pieces as well. I went with pretty neutral colors so you can dress these pieces to fit your school colors :) . Hope you enjoy!

Perfect Class Looks

Let’s be real, if you’re anything like me and have to walk 15-20 minutes to class on a daily basis in the humid mid-season heat, it is hard to go all out in the cutest wardrobe. For comfort and to keep the sweat to the minimal I HAVE to dress in cool/comfy clothes or I will be uncomfortable and sweaty while attending class and “nobody’s got time for that”, literally. I even remember wearing one of my favorite/cutest pair of sandals (that I thought were pretty comfortable) to class one time and came home with blisters on my feet. I give major props to the girls who can rock a super adorable outfit to class! Anyways, although I don’t exactly get “dolled” up for class, I do like to present myself well. Even if it is a pair of Nike shorts, tennis shoes, and a tee. So today I put together some cute comfy everyday class looks. Hope you enjoy!

look1look1

This entire look I actually own and have already wore it to my first week of school. The shoes I just purchased and they are SO comfy and great for walking around campus and of course workouts. I have been wanting a pair of black tennis shoes and so happy I found these. Also, can’t forget accessorizing with my everyday jewelry!

I own a few items included in this as well such as the watch (another one of my fave jewelry pieces) and the tee from Urban Outfitters, which is perfect paired with a lace halter bralette. Oh and how cute is that jewel hair tye to wear on your wrist or in your hair(duh) LOL.

So I am basically obsessed with this “SEC” tee from ShopRiffRaff and most likely ordering it ASAP! I love the “vintage” look and the fact that I attend an SEC school is the perfect excuse to splurge on a graphic tee (am I right!?) LOL. I also added a bracelet stack from BaubleBar because I always think you should have some sort of arm candy, even if it’s just a tee 😉 .

Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Hello loves! Yes, it has been awhile since I last posted but I am back (again) :) . Wrapping up my summer courses, moving back to my college town, and beginning the new Fall semester has kept me quite busy. Moving on, today’s post is all about “Fall Wardrobe Essentials” a.k.a some fall trends that I am loving and adding to my fall wardrobe. Of course there is always a variety of trends for each season but I have went through and picked some of my favorite pieces. These are also the pieces that I will definitely be wearing this fall season.

indexBold Accessories: I LOVE a great accessory and one of the trends happens to be bold. Go big or go home right!? 😉 Anyways, when it comes to wearing these pieces I honestly think you can wear them with anything from a nice plain tee to a dressier look like a dress or jumpsuit.

Tee: Zara HERE // Jumpsuit: Lulu’s HERE

High-Waisted: I’ll admit, I have not always liked high-waisted and I’m sure we can all relate to this because the “in-thing” has not always been high-waisted, or at least not up until recent years. As I mature I adore all things high-waisted from shorts to jeans. It is so slimming and chic at the same time. You can easily wear this with just a normal flow top to tucked-in or cropped with a skinny belt. Oh and you know who’s the queen of this look!? Kendall Jenner, one of the biggest fashion icons today.

Ponchos: VERY comfortable yet so cute and we all know that fall is the perfect time to bundle up while staying cute and comfy. Jeans and dresses are on my fall to wear list paired with ponchos. As seen above as well, LuLu’s pairs their poncho perfectly with skinnies and heels. Also would be great with a fitted dress and tall boots.

Mini Skirts: “Who wears short skirts!?” – YOU should be THIS fall season 😉 . Love the look of a mini skirt with over the knee boots. Oh and if you’re wondering, YES that is a denim skirt I have shown above and for some of you, you may be thinking “WHAT!?” but yes they are back and perfect to add to your wardrobe. Pair a denim skirt with an over-sized sweater for a great fall look. Now let’s check out the beloved Taylor Swift and how perfect she looks rocking the mini!

Over-the-Knee: These boots are definitely a fall fave and can be worn with a variety of pieces, literally. Here are a couple fab celebs rocking the over-the-knee boots different ways.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

nordstrom

One of my favorite sales is going on right now and it is great everything; great deals and even greater products. It is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I went through and picked some of my faves while gearing the clothing more to a fall wardrobe. I will admit it was hard to only pick a few items because there is SO many fabulous things to choose from. I suggest checking it out 😉 . I love a comfy/casual look and dressing it up and down so that is what I chose most of for the clothing, while choosing some of the cutest accessories. One of my favorite brands, “Wildfox” also has some cute things at the moment that is a part of the sale and that is the two sweatshirt tops I chose. Also with the cutest sayings “COOKING RULE: IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED ORDER PIZZA” (SO me!! LOL) and “BELLA DONNA” meaning “Beautiful Lady”. Anyways I hope you enjoy the items I picked out and go check out this major sale! Have a fab weekend!

Scallop design in the Cutest Way + Giveaway

First off let me start off by saying how much I LOVE the detail of the neckline on this dress. I think scallops are the CUTEST design and goes great on this dress! I decided to go for a more “casual chic” look by wearing nice sandals with a wedge on them and accessorized in pearls. This dress can easily be worn from day to night and paired with a heel (or wedge). NOW, let’s talk about where this  adorable dress came from … READY!? ..

Sequins and Palm Trees

unnamed

“Sequins and Palm Trees”, kind of random huh? I love mixing different pieces together and I have been waiting to wear these shorts and finally found the perfect top for them. Yes I know there is a variety you could wear with these shorts but I wanted something different and when I saw this plain V-neck with sequin sleeves I immediately fell in love. Not only do I wear this top with these shorts but HELLO like every pair in my closet because who doesn’t love sequins on a casual tee?

Whiskey in a Tea Cup

When I saw this tank top I thought it was adorable and had to have it. I paired it with lace trimmed shorts and a bandana to make it a little edgy. Graphic tees and tanks with cute sayings are one of my weaknesses as they can be worn anywhere and everywhere while adding a cute pop to your outfit. Another recent purchase of mine was the Kendra Scott necklace I am wearing and I LOVE it! I’ve wanted one for a while now and if you keep up with my blog then you have seen it in a couple previous posts as well. Anyways it was a great buy and I have been wearing it with almost every outfit, so if you’re looking for an everyday necklace I would suggest checking them out! :)

Summertime Sundress

Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! I spent mine at the beach and on the boat a.k.a my favorite thing to do. I kicked off the weekend in this colorful dress and big sun hat for my cousin’s bridal shower and it was the cutest shower! Filled with “Brunch && Bubbly”, a macaroon tower, and some adorable attire. I never wear hats and I thought it was a fun idea to have that as part of the attire. This dress is from one of my favorite local boutiques in Orange Beach, AL called Lucca and is by Alice+Olivia. If you’re vacationing or live in the area you should check it out located at the Wharf. Hope you all have a fab Monday!
