A Spring Staple

Happy Tuesday dolls!  I'm taking it back to Cali again with today's outfit post.  








Vest: Gentle Fawn (here) c/o / Top: The Limited / Jeans: Dittos 
Shoes: Zara (also love) / Bag: Philip Lim x Target / Bracelet (here) & Ring (here): Capwell 


Just like blazers, I think every woman should have a vest in her wardrobe for the spring/summer.  I love their versatility and I'm all for pieces that can be dressed up and down for the day or night.  It's all about making the most out of the items in our closets.  I got this one right before my trip and honestly had no idea what I wanted to wear it with.  Since we can only pack so much in our luggage, it can start to become a little challenging when creating outfits.  Thankfully I was staying with a friend and borrowed this top from her.  I really wanted to play up that color from the print in the vest.  I decided to keep it casual and chic by styling it with my dark skinnies.  I've already lost count of how many times I have worn these.  

I've been on such a floral kick lately, but I can't seem to help it.  My next post has floral print too. Sorry in advance lol 
Happy Earth Day!

Abstract Floral + Neon

I hope that you all had a great Easter weekend!  This is what I wore for the special occasion. 









Top: Lovers & Friends (here) c/o / Skort: SheInside (here) c/o 
Shoes: Forever21 (similar) / Earrings: Daisy Gem (here)
Midi Rings: Prima Donna (here)

I think that this might be one of my favorite combinations.  I got this blouse when I was in LA visiting the Lovers & Friends showroom.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I absolutely love the abstract floral print and blue/neon combo.  I really wanted to shoot in this while I was out in Cali, but by this point I was running out of things to wear and I didn't have anything to pair this with.  When I got home, this "skort" was waiting for me.  It worked out perfectly because I think these two pieces were made for each other!  I didn't get photos of the back, but this skirt is actually shorts too :) 

White roses symbolize purity, innocence, spirituality and sympathy.  I thought it was a good color choice for Easter.   I have to say that it felt great to shoot with my mom again.  I know I was only away for two weeks, but taking pictures with her has really formed a stronger bond between us.  I really cherish it.  On special days, like Easter, I'm reminded of how thankful I am to still have her in my life.  Spending time with my family means everything to me.  

Happy Monday <3

The Maxi Is Back

Happy Friday loves!  
So excited to finally welcome back maxi skirts and dresses into my wardrobe. 







Skirt: Forever21 (here) / Top: Furor Moda / Shoes: Zara (also love
Bag: Charlotte Russe (here) / Necklace: Capwell 


 I got this skirt during my trip and loved the black & white print.  Plus, it was on sale for only $12.  Since I extended my stay, I wasn't prepared enough and had to do a little shopping out there.  Any excuse to shop is a good excuse, right?! haha It's been awhile since I wore a maxi.  I love them so much because they're perfect for the day or the night.  They're such an easy piece to wear.  I decided to pair this one with my old faithful crop top.  I wore it so much last summer and will probably do the same this year too.  I rented a car this day for a couple of meetings and then met up with some friends for dinner.  I'm happy I wore this instead of pants because I was comfy all day!  

I have a few more looks from Cali then it's back to the NJ scenery.  A huge thank you to my friend Christine for taking all of my pics during my stay.  She was recently certified as a makeup artist so once her site launches, I'll make sure to share it with you all. 

Cheers to the weekend! <3

Wrap Around

I'm back in Jersey but the outfits from Cali are still coming!  I definitely have summer on my mind right now. I wore this to a fun event out there.  You might have seen a few photos from my instagram :) 







Skirt: Furor Moda (here) c/o / Top: LUSH via Nordstrom Rack (also love)
Shoes: Zara (similar) / Bag: olivia + joy (here)


This is a wrap around skirt and I haven't worn one in such a long time.  I tied the bow in the back and then pinned it to the skirt so that it would stay tied.  Otherwise, if the bow came undone then that could have left me in a really awkward and embarrassing situation haha It's so cute though I love it.  And red is such a fun color to style.  I found this top a few days before my trip.  I almost didn't get it but I'm happy that I did because it worked perfectly with this skirt.  It's actually a crop top but it was long enough on me that I could tuck it inside.  I love the floral print because it has a vintage feel.  

As you can see in my recent posts, these shoes really came in handy out there.   It's a good thing I didn't pack more than I did because my suitcase was way overweight!  My dad used to always tell me to back "bare essentials only" and I think of that every time I travel.  I always end up packing up half my closet though lol 

Enjoy the day loves!

Merci Beaucoup

Happy Tuesday lovelies! It's time for a little bit of neon. 








Crop Top: Forever21 (here) / Bralette: Forever21 (also love)
Jeans: Forever21(here) / Shoes: Zara (here) / Clutch: Galian 


I picked up these pieces before heading out to LA.  It's hard for me to find denim that fit me well so I usually end up getting them at places like F21 and H&M.  #petitegirlprobs! I thought this neon crop tank was super cute and I love the "Merci Beaucoup" written on it.  The best way to wear tops like this is with a bralette underneath so you don't have to see your regular bra on the sides.  This one has a lace trimming on the top which adds a little something extra to the look.  The studded clutch also brings a bit of edginess too.  I wore this for a night out over here but it's another outfit that would also work well for the day with flats!  It's casual but still fun :)

I head back to Jersey tomorrow, so sad, but I still have a bunch of outfits to share.  It's been a great two weeks out here and I can't wait to come back.
Hope you have a fab day!

Cali Casual Cool

Happy Monday babes!
I'm still over here in Cali and wore this last week.  It felt great being able to wear shorts again!









Shorts: Vanilla Star c/o / Tank: Forever21(here) / Cardigan: Charlotte Russe (similar)
Shoes: Zara (also love) / Sunglasses: ZeroUV (similar) c/o / Bag: olivia + joy


Pairing long cardigans with denim shorts is one of my favorite things to do for the spring and summer seasons.  I just love the whole casual cool and laid back vibe that this look gives off.  I wore something similar last summer that you might remember.  If you don't have an oversized/long cardi then I highly suggest getting one.  They're such a great staple and are extremely versatile.  Plus, they keep you warm on those breezy days and are super easy to add to your outfits.  I packed this one last minute and I'm so happy that I did.  It was the perfect pop of color for this look.  You could even wear something like this with flats for the day and then transition it into the night with a pair of heels like me.  I'm all about distressed denim right now and these shorts are super cute with the side lace detailing.  They're the perfect mix of girly & edgy.  The finishing touch was this pair of gold mirrored sunnies.  I'm still loving this trend, especially in gold!

I hope that you all have a beautiful day :)
