Crop Top + Edgy Floral Skirt


Happy Thursday! So it was not my brightest idea to take pictures when the sun was setting on the opposite side of my condo. Sorry for the quality of the pictures :/ I tried to edit them to become lighter but I think that was a bad idea. Anyways, on to my outfit. I purchased this skirt from Zara a couple months ago and finally got around to wearing it. I love how different the floral print on it is; it gives it a little bit of edge! I kept it simple by pairing it with my Rad + Refined crop top and Steve Madden wedges

Have a great day!

Crazy About Kimonos


Happy Hump Day love bugs! I'm officially on my 6 day "summer break" now that summer finals are done. I'm taking an accelerated court that starts next week and it goes for 10 days straight (including Saturday's and Sunday's) but it knocks out 3 credits for me! If you saw my Wednesday Wish List post from last week (if not you can check it out here) I finally pulled the trigger and at least purchased this amazeballs Show Me Your Mumu kimono. I have to say I'm Uh-bsessed with it! I wore it my family friends graduation party on Sunday and everyone told me I looked like a celebrity (best compliment you could give me). I paired it with black shorts and a white tank. For my accessories I went with my white aviators, MK watch (similar), MK bracelet, Champagne Teardrop Diamond Necklace, Alex Mika infinity ring, and my Chanel ring. I swear my boyfriend gets me all my best and most favorite accessories because 4/6 accessories in today's post were gifted to me by him (he's such a fashionisto). 

Have a good day!

Blue Prints











Both Brittani and I had a great time this past weekend at the Simply Stylist Chicago event. With so many powerful women in one room, the knowledge and stories shared were unforgettable. I decided to dress up a bit for the occasion by borrowing one of Brittani's Le Dress Chicago finds (perks of us being the same size and having totally different closets). I felt so feminine and festive in this subtle blue print Greylin dress, which was perfect for the event's atmosphere. As you can see it was a bit windy, which made for a few fun Marilyn Monroe moments out in the street! I also love these new Steve Madden studded sandals that I found at one of their latest bogo sales, comfort and style is one of my favorite combinations.

Gladiator Glam
















Happy (or maybe not so) Monday!

Gladiator sandals are in constant rotation in my closet, which is why I hope we never utter the words, "oh these were so last seasons," anytime soon. I feel that the trend will defeat the odds by being the versatile shoe that they are. These Dolce Vita sandals are a favorite of mine and I decided to pair them with this black Rad and Refined dress I picked up this weekend while they were in Chicago (so comfortable I could live in it!). My shoes and accessories together added flair to this LBD that had me feeling like a gladiator goddess. If you're looking for a fun but laid back look for the rest of the summer I highly recommend this one. If you like my headband head over to our shop to see more great ones just like it!

White Denim + Mint











I've decided that I'm going to boycott fall this year and stay in summer all year round (I wish). Summer always seems to fly by way too quickly, almost August already! Before we know it it'll be labor day weekend and these white denim jeans will fall to the old saying. However, I fully plan on wearing white well into the fall and winter seasons. Who says white can't be great after Labor day? For right now I've been living in them and recently paired it with this mint top. Mint has been a staple for me this summer by being a refreshing color to wear and allowing the illusion of a killer tan.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone! If anyone is attending the Chicago Simply Stylist Event this Saturday at The Dana Hotel - keep an eye out for Brittani and I! We'd love to meet some of our fellow bloggers and readers.
