Polka Dot Fever

On the Spot Polka Dot Button Down Blouse – Lulus | Wreck-Reational Activity White Distressed Denim Shorts – Lulus | Gila Studded Ankle Strap Heel – Steve Madden | Midnight Muse Fedora – Lack of Color

Anyone else have some polka dot fever going on? It has such a classic and feminine print that I can’t get enough of. This entire look is from Lulus, one of my favorite most versatile websites for cute, on trend outfits. I have a feeling this top will be a great pairing with overalls for a casual look or a mini skirt for a night out.

Resort Spring Top – PYLO | High Waisted Black Mom Jeans – Vintage Guess | Pointed Toe Ankle Boot – Zara (Similar) | Pearl Choker – ASOS | Simple Body Chain – ASOS

Summer is slowly approaching in Orange County and my fashion instincts are turning to pops of color as a way to spice up my wardrobe. I’m a huge fan of wrap tops and dresses so when I saw this red minimal floral printed blouse from PYLO I knew I had to grab it. Cropped fit and flowing material makes for the perfect pairing with a side slit maxi skirt, high waisted shorts or as pictured here, thrifted high waist “mom” jeans. I threw on a cute bralette underneath but a lace cami or tube top would also make great layering pieces for more modest wear. I’m definitely getting more comfortable with plunging necklines as well, mainly because of my new statement necklaces like the two I am wearing. I highly recommend grabbing a choker body chain, these babies run a straight line down with a smaller opening up top (around your neck) and a larger opening on the bottom (for the hips), I think it accentuates any v-neck or plunging neckline tops or dresses. It also helps you feel like you have a little more coverage (as silly as it sounds).

Essential Sandals

I have this problem of always buying boots or heels throughout the year. It is great for 80% of my life but when spring and summer roll around you start doing a lot more traveling and walking which isn’t always great for heels or closed toe shoes (especially with the sunny California weather). I’m really bad at making the decision to buy sandals since I assume they are limited to the summer months. I only have one pair that are fashionably appropriate (not flip flops). But low and behold, some of the latest sandal trends having been cruising through my mind and inspiring a lot of outfit ideas, including those for fall! Here are a few of my favorites, all $70 or less from Urban Outfitters.

Grab those high waisted shorts and a crochet top and you’ll be festival ready all summer long.

The Caged Sandal

I’m a fan of these since they have the illusion of a small cut out boot. These are great for some high waisted trousers and cropped top.

Holographic/Glitter Sandal

Every girl should have a pair of glitter sandals or a holographic pair. They are so fun to spice up any basic outfit. Plus, they second as somewhat “formal” shoes. Just incase you aren’t in the mood for heels (guilty).

Printed Canvas Sandals

Pair of boyfriend jeans and a white v-neck. Enough said.
