Crop Top and Skirt: Target, Sandals: Wet Seal, Hat: Windsor, Bracelet: Kate Spade: Sunnies: Nordstrom BP.


As you already know, I have a mild, I mean major obsession with polka dots so it was only a matter of time till I created an entire look using some of my many polka dot pieces. Instead of wearing a skirt with the same black and white polka dot print as my crop top, I went for a more subtle approach and wore this skirt that has a polka dot pattern in a reduced size and color palette.

I recently bought this hat from Windsor and I am so happy with it! I am pretty picky when it comes to brim size and this seems to be the perfect match. I wore my favorite sunnies and some comfortable black sandals. I then topped it off with… yup, a polka dot bracelet. I thought, hey one more thing can’t hurt!

How to make a sequins skirt casual

I started doing some spring cleaning this week. I happily started to put my winter clothes away and started to bring back my spring/summer clothes. I then came across this sequins skirt which I bought for New Years Eve. I absolutely love this skirt and I really did not want to put it away till next year. So…. I decided to pair it with a simple white Tee and my trusty chambray to dress it down a bit. To take the casual factor up a notch I also wore my Converse. I was more than pleased with the results! Later in the day I put my hair in a top knot and I actually liked the outfit even more.

So don’t shy away from putting away those sequins skirts you wore over the holidays. Show me how you style your sequence for an everyday look and #adryonthedaily.

Stuck in Colder Weather

Let me tell you how I feel about cold weather… I hate it. Being cold to me is painful and does unflattering things to my body such as a red nose and dry, goosebumpy skin. The only bright side is that I can wear really cute scarves and beanies and most importantly leggings. This outfit is kind of my winter uniform with a few variations depending on the day. The most important item is my mom’s beige cardigan which has made itself comfortable in my closet this season (sorry mom). It’s a thick sweater in a neutral color which basically means I can wear it everyday. Since this outfit is clearly black and tan tones I HAD to have a pop of color through accessories. This beanie has been my favorite for years. I’ve always loved the color blush and the embellishments add the perfect touch of sparkle. And I am also totally obsessed with my new lipstick from Sephora. I can’t wait to buy more from this collection.

PS. The title of this post does not only summarize how I feel about my current situation in this dreadful weather but it is also a small line from the song Colder Weather by Zac Brown Band which is on serious repeat as of lately.

Summer Meets Fall

Dress: Forever 21, Necklace: Cookie Lee, Shoes: Franco Sarto, Lipstick: Clinique “Flirty Honey”

School has been consuming so much of time lately that I didn’t have time to buy or even plan an outfit for my cousins Quinceanera this past weekend. Luckily, I had this dress that I bought at Forever 21 a few months back that I only wore once. Since the weather has been cooling down I was able to wear the dress with tights and simple black heels.  I was surprised how appropriate this dress felt for fall considering I bought it when it was still summer. This goes to show that a dress in classic colors (black and white) can be worn year round depending on how you style it. I am also quite in love with my statement necklace from Cookie Lee. It gives any outfit that finishing touch of glam!

Boho-Chic: Neutral and Lace

So here’s the story about my favorite dress. I went into a local boutique near my house looking for an Easter dress back in April and came out with two maxi dresses, this being one of them. Although I fell in love with the fit, color and fabric I just couldn’t get past the length because it made the dress a bit formal. So I took it to get altered and now I can say it is one of my favorite dresses! My friends and family have already seen me in it twice (for my brothers graduation and also his graduation party) which was slightly embarrassing but so worth it! I kept my accessories neutral with dark brown accents. My JewelMint earrings added a touch of elegance to the bohemian style of the dress. And when I am going for a more boho-chic look I like to curl my roots instead of the ends. It’s one of those outfits where you try and make your hair look messy. You know, the cute kind of messy.

 

Summer Uniform

DSC_3280copyDSC_3278copyDSC_3285copy DSC_3288copy DSC_3291copyDSC_3300copyDSC_3296copy DSC_3314copyShorts: Charlotte Russe, Blouse: (Similar), Shoes: ShoeMint (Similar), Watch & Clutch: Kate Spade, Sunnies: BP. Nordstrom

When summer first started for me back in May I was determined to add some more shorts to my wardrobe. I basically had the essentials, a pair of white and blue denim shorts. I am pretty picky about the types of shorts I wear due to the fact that my waist size is smaller than my thigh size so finding a pair that fits me properly is always a challenge. I was thrilled when I found these printed ones at Charlotte Russe because they were on sale for $10! Not only are they a super cute print, but they are elastic and lose fitting so I was able to get my size and not worry about them being too tight. I bought another pair in a chevron pattern and I have worn both of them multiple times this summer.

Ever since I was little my summer uniform was shorts, a tank-top and flip flops. I am happy I was able to create an outfit using my usual outline, yet this time it’s more sophisticated and classy. In a future post I will show how I style my Charlotte Russe chevron printed shorts.

What’s your summer uniform?

I’m Back

DSC_3154copyDSC_3151copy1DSC_3159copy DSC_3164copyDSC_3168copy DSC_3174copyShirt: Target, Shorts: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls (Similar), Shoes: Anne Michelle  (Similar), Purse, Watch, Ring: Kate Spade

Oh my gosh! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to start blogging again. So much has happened since my last post. Here are just the highlights…

1. I turned 21!  I celebrated with close friends and family which was absolute perfection.

2. I guess you can say I am now officially a senior in college. Umm, that’s crazy!

3. And get ready for this one… I am now a social media intern for BeachMint. This has been a dream of mine for almost two years. I fell in love with their company right away because they were innovative and worked with some of my favorite celebrities. Since I don’t go to a fashion school or a major university I knew I had to work hard to stand out as much as possible, and it turns out I didn’t need a fashion school or fancy college name to get the internship. I did exactly what people say… if you want something bad enough you have to work for it. And that’s exactly what I did.

Now let me talk about my outfit. I thought it was only appropriate to debut my new favorite shorts for my first post since my long hiatus. I had expressed in this post how badly I wanted polka-dot shorts and luckily I found these amazing Lauren Conrad shorts, on sale! It was pretty much meant to be. Although I have worn them casually I decided to dress them up with a buttoned down chambray and nude strappy heels. Then there is my laptop bag which has been ideal for my internship and not to mention school. It just adds that final touch to complete the outfit.

My Favorite Sweater


Sweater: INC (similar), Blouse: Charlotte Russe, Hat and Tights: Target, Boots: Gianni Bini, Purse: Juicy Couture, Necklace: Michael Kors,Watch: Nordstrom (old), Bracelets: Juicy Couture (similar) and Things Remembered

I last wrote about this sweater in April when I wore it with jeans and an oxford shirt. This outfit is completely different but just shows how versatile the sweater is. Even though this outfit is all black, the stripes and tan color from the sweater create some depth and keep it visually appealing. I felt the outfit had room for some heavy accessorizing  so I borrowed this gorgeous Michael Kors necklace from my Aunt Elsa (Thank you!) and also wore my cloche hat from Target. I am excited for the colder weather because now I get to bring out all my hats and scarfs. I have to try really hard not to wear one every single day. But they are just so cute!

Black, Gold, and Cream

Dress: Elle via Kohls (other dresses at Kohl’s), Shoes: Cosmopolitan via JCPenny, Necklace: Local Jewelry Boutique, Clutch: Kate Spade

Well, I’m back! Turns out blogging during the semester was a lot harder than I thought. This semester has been really tough with test and projects due every week. I have missed blogging and I can’t wait to get back on track.

This outfit was from a while back when I went to a cocktail party in celebration of some friends who are getting married. I jumped at the opportunity to get all dressed up. The style of this dress reminds me of something Lauren Conrad would wear. She has the quintessential sophisticated and feminine style that I absolutely adore. And can we just take a moment to totally drool over these shoes! When I spotted these at JCPenny I almost passed out (too dramatic?). Seriously though, I have found any excuse to wear them, along with this gorgeous collar necklace. I love how the black and gold play against the cream color of the dress. It’s an unexpected combination that worked out really well.

Polka-Dot

 

Shirt: H&M, Jeans: PacSun, Shoes: City Classified, Purse: Kate Spade, Belt: Target

I finally bought a polka dot blouse. This makes me one step closer to being like Sadie (described in this post). I have already worn this top way too many times and I am pretty sure people are starting to think I don’t own anything else. It is just SO comfortable! I am sure I am not the only one to be infatuated with new clothes for a few weeks. Polka dot pieces are similar to stripes because they are both classic pieces that will never go out of style. After reading my JCrew catalog and a quick trip to Forever 21, it does appear that they are on trend this season. So now is the perfect time to pick up a polka dot blouse and it will be good for years to come!  I will show you in future posts different ways to style it.
