Summer Cardigan

If you are anything like me and simply can't wait to start wearing fall clothing then you find ways to incorporate things now even though the temperatures are still in the low 90's. That's what I did here. The key was bare legs and a tank top. My light waterfall cardigan was just what I needed to complete my look. It's made of a super thin and breathable material so it's totally okay to start wearing now! For more cute fall must-haves, check out my last post here!

On My Wishlist: Knits & Cardigans

Happy Sunday lovelies! The mornings are getting chillier and the sun is slowly beginning to rise later. It's finally time to start thinking about all those fuzzy and warm layering pieces! I've gathered up some that are on my wishlist right now. They're all from h&m because well... I love that place and it's affordable but you can still find quality items. I ordered this already in the grey color! Do you have any favorites from my wishlist?

This color combination looks so fresh and it's a new favorite of mine. Over the weekend I found this light blue cotton shirt, an item that had been missing from my closet for too long! I wore it with my white jeans - a summer staple for sure! I can't wait to transition them into my fall & winter wardrobe with chunky knits and rich hues! I finished the look with my white converse. I had forgotten all about them ever since I got these sneakers! Is anyone else in love with the color combo?

Ripped Jeans & Button Up

One of my most recent purchases are these ripped jeans from Zara. They are the most destroyed pair of jeans I own and I love them! I've received a lot of compliments on them too! For an easy summer look I tucked a white button up blouse into them and added my lace up sandals from Madewell. Zara is definitely one of my favorite stores to shop from. Any other Zara lovers out there? 

Happy Birthday To Me!


This weekend was my birthday! I turned 22! I had a lovely surprise from my love in the morning... chocolate cake donuts and fresh flowers. Later that day I did some shopping and went out to eat. The second picture is my birthday outfit! I wore the cutest off the shoulder top, ripped blue jeans, and my favorite sandals. Overall I had a really great weekend - movies, little surprises, shopping, eating, spending time with my love, and feeling thankful! Sorry for the phone pictures, this was just a quick update but soon I'll have a new post for you guys! I hope you all had a lovely weekend as well! x

Everyday Basics

Neutral tee, black skinny jeans, & sneakers... These are just a few of my wardrobe essentials. Put them all together and you have my go-to look for when I don't know what to wear. During fall and winter, just switch the tee out for a cozy sweater or throw on a long cardigan or leather jacket. Speaking of leather jackets, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect one! If you have any tips leave them in the comments! :)

Hair Inspo

For some weeks now I have been thinking about chopping off my hair! The summer heat always makes me wish I had short hair, plus it's easier to style! And now with fall coming soon I like changing things up a bit. Okay, I think I'm 99.9% sure I want to go for it but now the hard part will be trying to find a good hair stylist! I don't have anyone I go to regularly and often I prefer to trim my own hair. But this will be more than just a trim so I have to find someone good. It's fun to change up your hair once in a while and remember it always grows back! Anyone else debating on getting a shoulder length cut soon?

I found this picture searching through my old blog folders! It's from 4 years ago!

How has August been for you all so far? It's been going by so quickly for me. I haven't been as active on the blog as I would like to be but August isn't over and I still have time to change that! Next weekend is my birthday. Then soon it will be September and closer to fall weather. I'm so excited! There are so many things I'd love to wear but can't because it's way too hot! I still manage to wear a knit in the summer though. My tips are to stay indoors - otherwise you will be sweating your butt off, pair it with shorts, and choose a bright or light color. That is how I've managed to wear sweaters the past two days. 

Summery Things


1. My three most worn tops at the moment... They're all super basic and can be worn together with all of my summer denim. My favorite though is the lush tee

2. Bright summer nail colors! A vibrant coral from essie 'e-nuf is e-nuf' & an eye catching pink from wet n wild 'it's sher-bert day'. 

3. Denim shorts. The wash and the cuffed hems make them perfect for everyday wear.  This is one of my best purchases of the summer for only $9.99! They're sold out online buuuut if you run to the stores right now you might still find them. ;D

4. Lace up sandals. Right now I'm loving everything strappy and lace-up. I'll be able to carry over my love for lacing through fall and winter too because it's a really big trend with tops and dresses!  

5. Appreciating the beauty around us. Nature and blooming flowers are definitely one of my favorite things about summer!

Here is a quick look at what I wore on Monday... White ripped jeans and a gray cold shoulder top. I wanted something that would keep me warm since I didn't feel all that well. On Sunday I woke up with a sore throat and today I've spent all day in bed trying to recover. I want to feel better as soon as possible so I'm trying to get enough rest, drink plenty of water, eat well, take supplements/vitamins. I hope you guys are doing well!

Happy Saturday guys! As you may have noticed I'm obsessed with lace-up details at the moment. I was thrilled when I found this tee with lacing in the front so I picked it up in two colors. This gorgeous purple and a heather gray. They're so easy to wear and it's longer in the back so it will be great with leggings. I've been eyeing this pair, they have so many good reviews!

Light Jeans & Converse

Hi lovelies! I'm back with another outfit! I bought this pair of light wash jeans over the weekend and they're so comfortable! I've loved wearing black jeans for the past few years and while they're still a staple of mine, lately I've been enjoying adding other colors into my closet! I love this white  pair and this light beige pair! Both are from Topshop and I've been getting so much wear from both... for size reference, I wear a 28x30.
