Shirt: Victoria Beckham for Target | Shorts: PacSun | Shoes: Forever21 | Bag: Zara

It was 10 AM on the Saturday morning that this Victoria Beckham for Target collection was released and I was running down the aisles of Target with excitement and fury to get all the pieces as quickly as I could – yes, I was that b*tch. I scooped up this button down bee top immediately, along with a few other Alice in Wonderland, Spring themed items. Everything was max $30 – how could you go wrong? My next investment – an iron. Yup, this girl can’t wear half of her closet because of all the wrinkles invading it. So, considering the circumstances, I tied a small front-knot into this bad-boy and gave it a whirl and it looked pretty cute! Always trying new things with new pieces because, why not?

Ettika X The Style Studies…

I’ve yet again received another amazing piece from Ettika! The handmade designer jewelry company constantly leaves me thinking far too often about jewelry and how I will incorporate it into my daily outfits. This gold ‘Million Miles Away’ long chain necklace was created for a collection in corporation with Nordstrom, and was my best friend these past few weekends, as I wore it for days around the city, nights out with friends and for my birthday dinner paired with this gorgeous dress!

It’s beautiful in a simple way, which is why it looks great with nearly every outfit! I loved wearing it with a white halter body suit, ripped jeans and a pair of nude heels. It made it glam easily and had me feeling incredibly chic. It ends just a bit past my belly button, which is perfect for a long necklace. It has a nice bohemian flow and isn’t overwhelmingly glitzy, and therefore can be either dressed up or down. The only negative about this piece is the small gem in the center piece doesn’t seem to be set in all the way; for the price of the piece I find that this is something a bit critical. It’s not something you want to see after spending $75 – not that all pieces will come this way, but mine did. It is very unnoticeable though, and is just me being a tad picky, mind it is my job to give you the most honest review!

Overall, regardless of the minimal flaw, the piece is beautiful, effortless and timeless. Like I said, it can be worn with just about anything (as I say this I’m wearing it with a pair of black leggings and khaki tunic (; ) and it has become a critical piece to my wardrobe!

Plaid Accents…

 

  
  
  
  
   WHAT IM WEARING:

Top: Forever 21 (last season)

Jeans: Missguided

Heels: Missguided (On Sale!!!)

Plaid Shirt: Charlotte Rousse (last season)

It’s an extremely gloomy, rainy day here in DC. As soon as I was ready to take some pictures, it started to pour 😦 Lucky enough, it cleared for the rest of the night! My lovely boyfriend was my photographer and actually did so much better than I expected! Although he made fun of me most of the time, I think I’ll keep him (; This is such a casual chic outfit that can be worn for a night out, or with a pair of sneakers for a day having lunch with some friends. I haven’t had many opportunities to expand my closet recently (aka go shopping :P) so I’ve done a lot of playing around with the pieces I have. I think that’s one of the key necessities to being a stylish individual. Spending isn’t always available and we don’t all get clothes for free like the many blogger inspirations we see with new pieces nearly every other day. Making the most of the pieces you have is key. One pair of jeans can make 5 different significant outfits that never look the same! Keep an open mind 🙂

Mom Jeans…

 

  

  

  

Shirt: H&M

Jeans: Missguided (50% off!!!)

Sandals: River Island (on sale!!)

Sunnies: RayBan

Polka Dot Bra-let: Forever 21 (similar here)

Gold Layered Necklace: AliExpress

I’ve never had a pair of “mom” jeans until these and to be honest I was a bit fearful of the way they may fit (and returns to another country is just stress that none of us really need) but I adore Missguided and fit in their other jeans well, so I gave it a shot. Although they’re somewhat loose in the upper area and below the tooshie, that’s how they’re supposed to fit. It took some getting used to but I love them and feel so 90s chic! The top is actually a tunic in which I had to fold up a bit and knot in the front. I’m all about knotted tops right now! It’s so easy to do and can add some flare and cropped style to practically any normal top. Hope you like it.

Ocean Breeze…

  

 

Dress: Mono B (register & check out their pieces!)

I found this gorgeous dress in a little boutique in downtown Bristol, RI. It’s so incredibly stunning in the simplest way! It’s very thin and breezy, and makes me feel oh-so-glam (; It has a very tiny slight lift in the front and drape in the back so it’s never a bother when walking around. It’s up there with my top 3 favourite pieces this summer! And I found it on sale! (my mom bought it for me, thanks mom :P) I’m not the biggest fan of maxi dresses but this one is killer! I paired it with this gorgeous gold statement necklace that I got last winter in another Boutique in Bristol called Jackies Loft. Gold is a great color with this dress! When I tried it on in the store I was wearing a gold body chain underneath and it looked stunning!

Angel Flow…

              

  Dress: Marshalls

Everything about this dress makes me feel like an angel. So crazy, but I feel so simplistically beautiful when I’m wearing it and can’t say I’ve felt that way about many things. It’s quite see through, so I wear it as a bathing suit cover up – or more like I wear a bathing suit underneath just so I can wear the dress 😛 I’m all about shift dresses this summer and this white looks amazing with a tan! (And was only $10!!!) Marshalls always has some amazing finds! Xo, A

Little Black Brandy…

                 

Dress: Brandy Melville

Necklace: H&M (similar)

Sunnies: Pac Sun (Similar)

Shoes: TopShop

Bag: H&M (similar)

I found this adorable Brandy dress at Pac Sun. It’s a really easy throw on that you can dress up or dress down. With a pair of heels this outfit could be completely different! The necklace is a major statement piece and really pulls it all together. I don’t typically wear statement jewelry but this necklace is killer and looks great with anything black, whether it’s casual shorts and a tee or a dress like this.

Enjoy 🙂

Crochet & Sunny Days… 


  
  

Tank: Hollister

Shorts: American Apparel

Sandals: H&M

Bag: H&M (similar here)

Sunnglasses: RayBan

Puppy Necklace: Francescas

Today was a day spent relaxing, taking the dog for a walk and walking through town with my little siblings; which perfectly explains this super casual, comfortable outfit. I’ve wanted a crochet tank top for awhile now and came across this one in Hollister. This style tank is great to dress up or down, to throw on over your swimsuit or to tuck half into a jean 70s button down style skirt (American Apparel has a cute one here). It’s one of my favourite go-to pieces in my summer wardrobe!
