Suzie Blues

Friend of Mine Suzie Blues White4

Been obsessing over these Friend of Mine Suzie Blue overalls for quite some time. After stalking them online I finally made my decision to go with the white pair after Urban Outfitters threw them on sale. I grabbed a size 2 and they have an amazing fit compared to the pair of shorteralls I picked up at the flea market (very roomy in the leg). Can’t wait to wear these over summer with some fun printed cropped tops. Today I paired them with my new Madewell button up, Topshop HYDRATE pool sliders and Cleobella Leena Backpack. Side note regarding the backpack, the shape is incredible, and the pocket can be taken off and interchanged giving you the ability to switch up your bag AND an extra clutch for those evenings out.

DeLacy Drew Dress

De Lacey Drew Dress4

In love with the Drew Dress from DeLacy. They have an incredible selection of unique basics mixed with soft fabrics, fun prints and feminine styles. I’m all about the front tie knot on skirts but a dress version is as perfect as can be. To keep a more casual vibe I paired the dress with my Zara sliders and NastyGal oversized motorcycle vest. Transition this piece from day to night by removing the vest and throwing on a pair of chunky strappy sandals. Your legs will thank you.

Festival Season (Where to Shop)

festival shop banner

Festival Season is just around the corner. Aside from Coachella there are plenty of other music festivals on the rise (e.g. Sasquatch & Governers Ball) that you’ll need to be dressed for. As festival season moves into the Summer months of May – August the great thing is most temperatures will be kind to daisy dukes, lace crop tops & silk rompers. Take a peak at some of these retailers that have the best duds for looking your best while keeping cool.

SWELL

A rad mixture of surf and action sports inspired clothing SWELL includes brands like Novella Royale, Billabong, RVCA, Lovers & Friends and For Love and Lemons. The perfect mix of trendy, beachy and bohemian. There is a great mixture of pricing here as well with SWELL branded clothing ranging into the $20 – $30 and designer duds around $150.

Pricing: $$ – $$$$

GYPSAN

Oversized tops, lace & crochet dresses and adorable bells are what you will find at GYPSAN. Greatest part of this site is you will grab some unique pieces that are not found on you standard online shops like their Sierra Bell Bottoms in Mustard (which I am dying to buy). If you are looking to grab some statement pieces for your festival wardrobe definitely check them out. Not to mention free shipping on domestic orders!

Pricing: $$

Van De Vort

For all things Boho Chic this is your one stop shop. With high end designer pieces from brands like Flynn Skye, Cleobella & Gypsy Junkies you are guaranteed to find some incredible pieces. If you are concerned with pricing keep in mind that they have reasonably priced house brands that stay within the range of $30 – $50.

Pricing: $$-$$$$

Bona Drag

If your style is more bohemian edge than Bona Drag is the perfect place for you. Dark makeup mixed with layers of silver jewelry and vintage inspired duds is your solution. With brands like For Love & Lemons, One Teaspoon and Karen Walker you’ll be working in the higher end bracket pricing wise but you won’t find this mix of intimates and clothing that looks so good together anywhere else.

Pricing: $$$ – $$$$

Havana Bells

Cleobella_Havana_Bells3

Fully embracing my 80s rock vibe with these Cleobella Havana Bells paired with a fun muscle tank. Best part of purchasing some bells is that you can pair it with just about anything, graphic tank, white oversized tee, or even a slouchy button up. The greatest thing about these bells compared to others has to be the quality. The fabric used is fitted, flattering, and also thick enough to withstand multiple use and washes. Not to mention the Batik print is perfect to pair with almost any neutral in my wardrobe. It took me awhile but I finally committed to a pair and I couldn’t be happier!

AE White BF Jeans

AE WHITE BF JEANS1

Been obsessing over all white denim as of late. While I have my pair of standard white cropped skinny Hudson’s I have been wanting a pair of distressed Boyfriend Jeans to romp around the beach in. Low and behold I happen to walk by American Eagle and find the perfect pair. Not only did they fit me incredibly well they also were on Sale. Huge plus for me!

Paired them with a relaxed white tee from H&M and my favorite Zara sandals (from last season). There’s something about wearing all white that gives me a tropical vacation getaway vibe.

ASOS Skater Dress

Simple dresses and obnoxiously large jewelry is where it’s at. I got both of these pieces from ASOS which is one of my go-to’s for my staple pieces like tees, dresses, and jeans. I noticed something was missing from my dress collection (which has recently become smaller), a simple dress that can be thrown on under my assortment of jackets, can be paired with cute tights or socks and can be worn with my knee high boots. The button detailing down the front also gives it some extra flair that I haven’t found in many skater dresses.

Now let’s talk about this necklace, I can’t wait to throw this on with all of my oversized tees and distressed shorts this summer. I’ve never been a huge jewelry girl, normally sticking to staple pieces like my ring collection and a basic short chained necklace however I really like the idea of spicing up a somewhat plain jane outfit with something so drastic as this necklace. If you are looking to rework your wardrobe adding some statement jewelry pieces are a fun, simple, and cheap way to do it. Happy Monday friends!

There’s something about a simple striped tee that I can’t seem to get over. Unfortunately I was being extremely pick with my choice. For one, I wanted it to be a good price and secondly I wanted it to be a super soft boyfriend fit. After a few weeks of searching I finally stumbled upon this beauty from Brandy Melville which never seems to let me down with basics. I also resurrected these MIA fringe sandals that I couldn’t resist bringing out on this sunny day in So Cal.

Madewell Inspired

A little blog post during a day out for errands and some delicious Crepes. Paired a really old piece with some of my new favorites. My sisters gifted me this corduroy pale pink button up from Madewell a few years back for Christmas and I finally have brought it back to life. I suppose moving into a new apartment has led to me re-discovering a ton of my old clothes and falling in love with them all over again (a very refreshing feeling). This H&M sweater has really been one of my favorite new pieces, everyone should commit to at least one cable knit sweater in their life. Perhaps I was channeling a little bit of Audrey Hepburn this afternoon but hey, I’m not complaining!

Ripped Knees

I’m in love with these jeans from ASOS. After seeing them on The Native Fox I really loved the fit and color. I’m always hesitant to buy jeans online since I’m not always aware of my sizing (especially UK sizing) but I gave it my best effort and ended up with the perfect soft pair of denim that hugs you in all the right places. Kept it simple with a black tank and my green army button up. Perfect outfit for spiced iced chais, pastries, and a perfect view of the ocean.
