Striped T-Shirt Dress

Can you all believe today is the last day of September? Time is just running by it seems. But I have to admit, these next months are my favorite of the year-the holiday season is right around the corner! (happy dance ;))

Anywho, this t -shirt dress is one of my favorite style of dresses in my closet. You know I love versatility, so when I can wear a dress 3 different ways…that’s a dress I need. I’ve worn this dress once before with no belt, just slouchy goodness with a pair of statement heels. Wearing it in this post with a belt cinches my waist and shows a little more leg-so I went with a more simple heel. Not a fan of horizontal stripes? I hope it’s not because of those “horizontal stripes make you larger than you are” nonsense, because the truth is that depending on your size, you can shop anything with horizontal stripes, just be aware of the width of the stripe. Since I’m petite, I tend to choose thicker stripes. If you have a fuller frame, then go for a stripe that is thin.

These dresses are great canvases for accessories. I like to pair stripes with longer necklaces, for aesthetic reasons. I always felt that a short necklace makes the outfit look choppy. Longer necklaces elongate you and fall more subtly on the stripes!

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you, be back here soon!

Bow on the Go

For those errand filled days packed with store hopping and maybe a lunch date in between, a feminine and lightweight dress is the perfect piece to wear. This dress from C.C.Lake, is one of those girly dresses that is just right to slip on when you have a busy day, but don’t want your style to suffer. It’s simple enough to have fun with accessories, like I did by adding my Kelly Green sandals, but the subtle print gives it a fun twist all on its own.

And can we talk about the adorable bow back? When wearing a dress with a surprise back like this one, sweep your hair up in a messy pony and let the dress do all the talking!

Cami Dress Fresh

Cami Dress Cami Dress Cami Dress Cami Dress Cami Dress Cami Dress


Today’s post is all about the breezy and fresh cami dress. It’s a wardrobe piece that is perfect for wearing by itself or for layering up. Although Fall has officially just begun, in some parts of the states it’s still a bit too warm to layer on the jackets and scarves. For that reason I decided to stick to effortless styling. Since a cami dress is such a delicate and understated piece, adding statement shoes like gladiator sandals is a great way to add some character to the outfit. As for jewelry, layered long necklaces keep that boho vibe.

Once the cooler weather comes around I’ll definitely be adding a crop leather jacket and moto boots for an feminine edgy look!

More Compassion, Less Aggression

SheSheBonBon Tee SheSheBonBon Tee SheSheBonBon Tee SheSheBonBon Tee SheSheBonBon Tee


Who doesn’t love a graphic tee? They can be paired with shorts, jeans, skirts…anything you’re in the mood for. When Le Motto by SheSheBonBon reached out to me to feature their line of inspiring graphic tees, I immediately knew I wanted to. I love when fashion and positivity unite. Their line of wordy tees is all about inspiring us to think about our actions and words and remember to mean what we say and not say mean things.

This particular tee stood out to me, I love the words “More Compassion, Less Aggression”. Life is hard. And so many times in life it’s easier to respond to a difficult or hurtful situation with aggression. Which is a totally human thing to do. I know that when I take a second to really think before I respond, both with words and attitude, I am able to react with so much more compassion and understanding in the situation. Compassion is one of the most beautiful traits we can have. It’s something I strive to strengthen every day, because I see the amazing things it can do in the world. I hope you can take a second next time you’re irked and choose to respond with compassion and not aggression. We’re all in this together :)

Happy Humpday Loves!

DIY Parisian Chanel °5 Flower Arrangement

DIY FLOWERS 010 DIY FLOWERS 005 DIY FLOWERS 008 DIY FLOWERS 015I love the idea of simple, delicate and feminine floral arrangements for event decor. This idea of re-creating a vase to look like a classic Chanel °5 perfume bottle is just that. With very simple steps and very little materials, you can create this chic arrangement for bridal showers, tea parties, really any girly event.

All that you need is a thin square vase, a printed Chanel °5 label (easily found on the internet) a few drops of pink food coloring and flowers of your choice. I do think hydrangeas are the perfect flower for this style of arrangement, but really any flower you love could look lovely. I’m usually not a rose kind of girl, but I do think white roses would look très chic ;)

I hope I’ve helped brighten up your Monday with this darling DIY. Have a wonderful week!

Here’s the label to print:

Flowers for Fall

Dress: Desigual Necklace: Shop Prima Donna Watch: LaMer Collections

It may be the beginning of Fall, but I’m holding on to florals. The best way to transition florals into Fall is to keep the colors neutral, like this adorable shift dress from Desigual. Shift dresses are great pieces that work with heels, sandals and even sneakers! They’re so fun to get creative with. Did I mention this Desigual dress is currently on sale? Heck yes!

I was definitely feeling a retro vibe when I styled this dress-I felt like a more modern go-go girl with my high pony and sky high heels! Plus this print is so seventies.

I hope you’re enjoying your week, tomorrow is Friday! That’s always a reason to celebrate in my book ;)
