Maxi-mum Summer

You know what I’ve been avoiding?! Maxi dresses. I’m like, 4’10” and that’s being generous, so since Midi dresses hit the scene, I’ve forgotten all about it’s longer, older sister. Maxi dresses are so awesome during the summer months, because they give you a comfortable breathable look, while still maintaining your chic-ness. I found this maxi dress through a fellow fashion Blogger, Blair Driscoll of Rose Gold Outlook. She wore it for Easter and it was so adorable. I love […]

Off-the-Shoulder

  One of this Summer’s hottest trends has got to be wearing everything off-the-shoulder. You can find rompers, tops, dresses and even swimsuits sporting this fabulous trend. While I have never been much for “trends” I can not help but love this seasons style and have definitely picked up a few pieces that fall off-the-shoulder. One of my favorite new pieces is this top from Target. It looks great with shorts or jeans and is perfectly loose enough to easily […]

Summer Sunnies- National Sunglasses Day 2016

National Sunglasses Day

Summer is here and that means it’s time to talk about the season’s most important staple: Sunnies. I have an obsession with sunglasses, if money were limitless I could easily have drawers full. While I used to work at a small boutique and grab a few pairs of inexpensive frames each paycheck with a great employee discount, I’ve since gotten rid of that collection and traded up for designer frames. I hear people say all the time that they lose […]

Too short for shorts?

I’ve always been a very short person, I think MAYBE I was of average size in 6th grade, but then I stopped growing completely in 7th at 4’10”. During my awkward adolescence I read some magazine article about how shorter girls will continue to look shorter if they wear shorts, and despite all my fashion expertise, it’s subconsciously stuck with me. I have worn shorts before, don’t get me wrong, I own a few pair for sure, but I’ve never […]

End of Summer Neutrals

As summer is ending (has already ended for most northerners), I’ve been a little smarter with my clothing purchases. I talk a lot about transitional pieces that you can wear no matter the occasion, however I always neglect to mention some great neutrals you can wear all seasons! This simple eggshell dress from H&M, cost only $12.95 and looks great like I wore it below with sandals, and tan accessories, however I can’t WAIT to dress it up for winter with […]

A view from the west coast – The BEST Summer Sunnies

I received these products for free compliments of ICU Eyewear to review, the opinions stated are honest, unbiased and provided without compensation.  I have what I’d call an affinity for eyewear, although the word obsession may be more accurate. I have perfect vision, however I do wear false-lensed glasses when I want to feel smarter, and don’t even get me started on sunglasses. I have a collection, from Ray-Ban’s to Bug-Eyes I found at the Dollar-Store and every pair in-between. […]

What’s in your beach bag? Hopefully a Sand Cloud!

I received the Sand Cloud towel for review purposes from Sand Cloud Apparel the opinions stated are honest, unbiased and without compensation.  Beach days in July are basically a necessity of life for Florida residents in the summer. It’s so much fun to catch rays with your girlfriends or build sandcastles with your little ones. The sun shining and waves crashing can be so peaceful and refreshing, definitely a perk of living so close to the beach for sure! I’ve found since […]

Summer is officially here, kids and teachers are out of school, and everyone is trying to fill their dog days with activities that are less boring than school was.

Tartan Tuesday…it’s a plaid, plaid world

Today was so fun! After meeting up with an old friend for coffee James and I decided to take Cash to the park! It was a blast! I knew ahead of time that it was hot outside, and that I needed to wear something that looked awesome, but was comfortable enough to enjoy the park in. For Mother’s Day I got this amazing red&blue tartan (the pattern used in Plaid materials) dress from (duh, my fav store) Francesca’s Collections. They […]
