Under The Sea


Wearing: Chi Chi dress, Target watch.

Today I'm super excited to show you all another outfit in a beautiful maxi dress which can be either dressed up or dressed down! I wanted to wear it more casually, so I just kept it simple with the accessories by wearing a simple watch. This beautiful dress from Chi Chi is called the "Ariel" dress, and that's exactly who I felt like in it, The Little Mermaid! There were without a doubt smiles coming from me all day in this gorgeous dress, so I got lots of twirly and happy shots when I went to take photos of it in the park. I may look a little too happy in that first shot, but it perfectly describes how I felt in this gorgeous summery dress!

Kohl's Back to School Challenge #FINDYOURYES - Part I


School season is almost here again, so I've partnered up with Kohl's to do a series of three posts to kick off the start of the school year with some fun and super cute style challenges! I've always personally loved journeying into Kohl's while back to school shopping, so I'm super excited to be doing this fun little collaboration, and to start off the challenge, I'm talking about this exclusive mailer that Kohl's sent me with surprise items to welcome me into this project.

I knew I was being sent a mailer, but was totally unsure as to what would be in it, so I was completely excited when I opened it up! Not only did it have clothes, but a variety of cute and colorful items that I love so much and are perfect for back to school as well! They threw in all sorts of random accessories, and cute clothes as well. I'm especially loving that cute floral beanie and tribal cuff! It also came with some gift cards for me to use for my style challenges, which will be a trend challenge (creating three looks that fall underneath the BTS trends School of Rock, Style Trip and Color Pop) and also my three looks under $100 post! But so far, I'm in love with the items in the mailer and can't wait to show you all what I come up with for the style challenges!

Oh and another thing, there will be a big giveaway at the end! So make sure you stay updated with my posts so you can enter and get some cute BTS goodies from Kohl's!

Brooklyn Baby


Wearing: WalG jumpsuit, Little Mistress belt (came with a dress so you can't get it individually), Nasty Gal sandals, Target hat, Michael Kors via Mara Vintage Shop bag, Gucci vintage watch, Vintage ring, bangle + earrings, My Name Necklace "Carly" necklace.

Couldn't think of a clever title, so I just decided to use a song title like usual, and I still can't stop listening to LDR's new album so Brooklyn Baby it was! I did go with it because of the lyrics mentioning the 70s, and that's exactly what I felt like in this outfit! Jumpsuits always automatically scream 70s to me, so I was definitely excited to get my first one here, which is from Wal-G! It's so cute and the color is just darling for summer, and even though the pant-length is a little too long for me, it'll be easy to take them somewhere and get them shortened. Which reminds me, I still need to learn how to sew so I can do simple things like small alterations...lol! Anyways, I stuck with gold accents (like usual) to keep it looking glam, and paired it with straw accessories to give it the glam 70s appeal as well. Of course, I tried my best to put in some very 70s pieces, like the floppy hat, the hoop-style earrings (they're door knockers but it just felt right to wear them...they're my favorite earrings right now!) and of course some chunky wooden platform heels. My mom told me I looked like I stepped out of American Hustle which was one of the best compliments ever, because even though I didn't care for the movie, it's one of my favorite style films! The more I love my outfit, the better my day is, and I must say I had a pretty good day in this outfit!

Also, I just wanted to add in that today this week's issue of Look Magazine came out, and I'm in it! While it's a British magazine, you can still order an online copy, but the image is below. I'm wearing one of my favorite summer dresses, from the Look Magazine x Little Mistress collection! If you haven't seen my post in it, you can click and view it here
