Cover Up!

It's finally summer!  Time to break out summer dresses, swim suits, cover ups, sunnies and sandals 😁🙌. 

When it starts getting hot out, I don't want to think too much about what I want to wear.  I admit, I get lazy. I like wearing pieces that are easy to style and comfortable for moving around in. 

Enter, this aerie tank dress. So soft you could fall asleep in it; and so classic you can style it in a number of ways without roasting in the summer sun.

My friends know all too well, I'm not a fan of getting into a swimsuit; I've always been pretty self conscious. But as I've gotten older, and started working on becoming healthier I've been much happier with myself. 

That being said, I don't dread buying swim suits anymore. It's made shopping for my summer wardrobe fun again. 

One of my favorite pieces I've recently picked up from aerie is this striped cover up. It's the perfect summer layer that you can wear to and from the beach. I love the blue and white stripes and the fringe; it's such an easy, breezy piece that I plan on wearing all summer.  

These J. Crew lace up gladiator sandals are PERFECT for summertime!  They're a chic, off white and made of a super soft leather.  

If there's one thing I need each summer, it's a good, sturdy pair of sandals. I am, by no means, a flip flops kind of girl (I own one pair, for the occasional trips to get a pedicure); these are just right. They're a little pricey (although right now they're on sale!), but you can never beat classic and quality. 

Cover ups make a great addition to a summer wardrobe...even if you're like me, and don't head to the beach very often!  They're great because they're super versatile, especially this aerie stripes shawl, like I'm wearing, because they're a bunch of different ways you can style it if you get creative. 

What do you guys think of using your cover ups as part of your everyday summer look?  :)

Boho Gypsy Vibes

I may have found the perfect twirly summer dress...for $7 in H&M's clearance section!  It's times like this where I know it's just meant to be when a dress you've had your eye on for months suddenly appears when you're just just sifting through the clearance racks.

I cannot stress enough: the clearance section is your friend-- your BFF even.  If you can manage the patience to go through the clearance racks, you're pretty much guaranteed an amazing find for practically nothing.  Plus, it's always such a better story when you can surprise people with how much you managed to save on such a great outfit!

Dress: H&M (similar) || Sandals: MIA, via Marshalls || 
Belt: Forever 21 || Necklace: Forever 21 || Sunnies: aerie (similar)
Watch: c/o Fossil || Bag: Marshalls (similar + this round one is also great!

Not gonna lie, I feel like a boho Disney princess in this dress-- like Belle meets Coachella-- and I love it!  The bright red-orange color, tassels, and the off the shoulder; it's perfect!  And the added silver western-inspired belt and necklace adds to the festival vibes without getting too crazy, or having to overload on accessories!

I've rounded up some of my favorite off the shoulder dresses for this summer here for y'all (all $100 and under!!!):

Have you jumped on the OTS dress bandwagon yet?  :)

Joggers in Heels

Today's my day off, and I was all too ready to get into my joggers and tee and just relax. But I have to admit, I don't really like to just hang out in sweats; so I got a little fancy. Relaxing, watching Netflix and doing facial masks is so much better with a super cute pair of heels. Practical?  Not at all. But fun?  Absolutely; like Blair Waldorf, if she ever wore joggers (lol, 🙈). 

Joggers: aerie, old (similar) || Tee: aerie || Watch: c/o Fossil ||
