Jacket: Zara Man [I stole this from my boyfriend
I fell in love with this dress as soon as I laid eyes on it, but it also immediately became problematic. It’s completely made out of mesh and came with no insert piece to hide everything going on underneath. I figured the dress was worth the trouble and went on an intensive hunt for a black slip – but I fell short. Oddly enough, I threw the dress on over some jeans and came out with this little number. I decided to keep it low-key casual this New Year instead of falling into the stereotypical glitz and glam that surrounds it. Black and red is timeless. Sadly, these heels are no longer available from Urban, so I was unable to link them, but I added in a cute winter alternative up there. (I scored these babies on a last minute clearance sale for $19
it’s too bad they hurt like a bitch. )
Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m a bit Zara obsessed at the moment, as you can tell. They had a huge sale on before the holiday so I took full advantage of the amazing deals and got myself a little going-away outfit! Everything in Zara is incredibly chic, even in the simplest of forms. I was in fits over this bell-sleeved, pinstriped top. It’s light and airy, and simple yet so unique! The jeans were supposed to be boyfriend jeans, but they only had one size left and I loved them so much that I got them anyway! Also, the shoes leave horrible blisters the first few times if worn for long periods of time 😬 but after being broken in they’re super comfy and match everything while being effortless chic!

Bottom: Wrapsody Cheeky Scooter
This Roxy bikini set is so gorgeous and so comfortable to wear. The salmon color literally glows in the sun and made me look so sun-kissed. It is by far my favourite bikini yet and I will highly recommend it to anyone! The back detail is simple yet gorgeous and the bottoms have good coverage yet are a bit flirty! Plus, there’s no other way I love to feel on the beach than comfortable, girly and sexy yet still have that salty surfer look. I wasn’t sure about Body Chains, so I bought a few cheap ones from Ali Express to try them out. Granted, each and every one of them fell apart after about a half an hour and were all too big in size (short torso problems :/) but none of that changed how amazing they looked on! To find some good body chains, check out my Summer Must Haves post where I featured some of the best ones I’ve found.
p.s. body chains look amazing under tanks, low neck shirts, dresses, etc.!
After a visit to LF Stores in NYC last spring I fell in love with these boho chic boyfriend jeans and needed them in my closet. They are a fun, bold statement piece which is definitely a necessity in any wardrobe! Dramatic statement pieces always create breathe taking street style and easily build your empire as a fashionista.
