Happy Wednesday everyone ! We are half way to the weekend!!
 
Today I am teaming up with Articles of Society to share one of my favorite trends... denim. If you have been following along, you will know I am a denim junkie. I wear it all the time... denim can do no harm in my eyes. Since Fall is all about layering, I decided to layer it up with different shades of denim (this was a no brainer).
 
These jeans seriously fit like a glove, the material is super stretchy- crazy comfortable! I also, love the slim boot cut because it adds the right amount of flare at the bottom. I paired them with an oversized denim jacket that I snagged for 5 buckaroos at H&M...no its not a typo, five dollars for this bad boy! To contrast the layers, I wore a crop top... because it's still technically summer, and because it's been hot, andddd because a little skin never hurt nobody... right?!

Happy Saturday and happy freakin' weekend !!
 
Today I am sharing a look that is a little on the wild side! Umm maybe not too wild, but it is a super cute python print!! Flowy clothing has been calling my name lately. On the weekends all I want to do is relax and wear clothing that is comfortable. So a relaxed fit is perfect! I love how effortless a cute printed one piece can be. The fun print makes it so easy to dress up or down (depending on your weekend plans). Not to mention that it goes perfectly with my new favorite bag! This baggy is quickly becoming a closet staple, I seriously can't stop wearing it. ( psst...have you entered the giveaway to win your own? Keep reading below to find out how.)

Ellington Handbags Giveaway!

FRI-YAYY!!

Aren't you glad it's the freakin' weekend?! Best part is, we are kicking it off with a giveaway for an amazing Italian leather bag !!

Today I am teaming up with Ellington Handbags, to giveaway a bag to one lucky reader! Seriously, you don't wanna miss out. I love my baggy! The quality is amazing...the leather is super soft (who doesn't love Italian leather?!) and it is the perfect hobo shape. I fell in love with this soft warm green color because I thought it would be a perfect shade for Fall. I always search for solid colored handbags because: 1. They are versatile and 2. They add a pop of color to any outfit. Another feature that you can't see from this photos are all the compartments inside the bag and on the side pockets ( I am planning to do a "What's in my bag" post to show you how neat everything can be kept inside. Which is a must for me because most days my bag is a hot mess and I can't ever find my car keys (true story, in the parking lot the other day, I literally emptied my bag on the floor ) .

Keep reading below to find out how to enter....

Matchy Matchy: Coral Blouse and Striped Tote

Workin' Hard or Hardly Workin' today!? 
Happy Labor day everyone!! 

Sooo..yesterday I told my boyfriend manfriend partner in crime Clint, "No white after labor day" and he looked at me like I was crazy and said "what do you mean, I can't wear white, what about my socks... I can't wear any of my white socks!" Ahh how I love that guy, he always says the silliest things that make me laugh.  

Today's post was actually not planned to coordinate with the labor day taboo, it was just a coincidence that made it fitting for the holiday. Every time Labor Day rolls around I think about that ridiculous fashion rule, does any one even follow it anymore? I wear white all year round, it is a 'can't live without' color for me. So you better believe this girl will be rocking her white jeans, and simple white tees until pigs fly.  

I've been wanting to share a matchy matchy outfit with this bag ever since I got it! The color combo is so perfect ( in my opinion). And to be honest, most days I reach for outfits that don't require too much coordination: Jeans, a top, and neutral shoes... done, and out the door. I also love this cute pearl necklace, I instantly gravitated towards it because of the non-conventional pearl necklace shape. I think it adds just enough detail, to an other wise simple ensemble. 









Hope you like it! Love it!

Happy Frrrriidayyy!! 

This week has gone by way too quickly! They say when you are having fun time flies...but I don't think I'm having that much fun lol. I feel like it was just friday...but oh well, who doesn't love the weekend!? Today I am sharing a bright highlighter look. This outfit has all my summer favorites: neon, gladiator sandals, and leopard! A perfect combo to start the weekend (in my opinion)!!

My sister and I were recently talking about trends. It seems like trends come and go way to quickly- like stuff is too easily disposable. Especially with social media! I love trying new trends but I also like pieces that will stay in my wardrobe season after season. I find it is better to invest in pieces that you know you will wear often, that truly represent YOU and YOUR personality. Neon has always been a favorite of mine, year after year I gravitate towards it. Leopard pieces are a must have for me..after all, leopard is a neutral! Gladiator sandals are a newer trend that I feel will be part of my closet for a while to come- they are super comfy and add an edgy vibe to any outfit. I think it is easiest to buy trends that are already a representation of our style.. that way they remain in your closet longer- because the trend matches YOU and not the season. (if that makes any sense).

 Any how, I was trying to plan my Fall shopping list ( so I won't over buy). I was trying to narrow down some of my must haves, to must have for years to come. It just makes more sense to buy something that could be an investment in the long run. Especially with all the sales happening this weekend... I am trying my hardest to be smart shopper and not an impulsive one. 

Happy weekend... and may you find great Labor Day Sales !

Retail Therapy: Camo Livin'

Happy Saturday! TGI..Weekend! 

I am so excited its the weekend!! Even though my weekends tend to be relatively bussy, I still need the idea of a break to keep me sane. I feel like I have been backed up with "to do" lists that never seem to be crossed off. And it is starting to sink in that summer is almost over (every time I say that or mention it in my blog I have a tiny panic attack- where did the year go!? Yesterday I saw pumpkin sugar cookies at Starbucks...umm too soon!) 

 Sooo when life gets rolling , I get silly. Yes, SILLY. I am a goff ball that is always a mess. And I am a hopeless optimist that tries to believe that everything will work out. Because the reality of life is that nothing is perfect. All we can do is enjoy the journey of life and learn to laugh. I like to joke about life and try to never take anything too seriously. Which is why I love Style Lately tops so much. I am constantly falling in love with the cleaver tag lines on their tops... and when I saw a cleaver tag line on a camo print..well, I fell head over heels instantly ! 

Retail therapy works like a charm, always makes me feel better!!

Casual transitions: Sleeveless top and grey booties

 Today I am teaming up with Velvet Heart to share a casual look that can easily transition into Fall. As much as I try to fight it, summer is slowly coming to an end. And even though it is still hot outside, Fall fashion is slowly creeping in. Don't get me wrong, I love Summer (mainly the idea of summer vaca mode haha) but I love prefer Fall fashion. I am currently in love with this rich brick color! It is definitely a must have in your wardrobe. I am also crushing on dark plums, and fuchsia colors. I feel like these are the perfect colors to transition from Summer to Fall. 

I personally can't wait for temperatures to fall so I can start layering again!Layers and boots! Boots are my favorite type of shoe! So naturally they are slowly but surely making their way back into my daily outfits. Fall I'm ready for you!
