printed pant inspiration

This was my inspiration for this look. I changed it around a little and made it my own by adding the necklace, scarf, and the pop of color with my favorite clutch. The idea of mixing the printed pant with a beige top and white tank came from this stylist! Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies has amazing style and is one of my favorite bloggers. She is 100% someone to follow for inspiration! The weather here in New England is getting a little chilly, so I had to go with a bootie rather than heels like she paired the look with, but I think I actually prefer my look!

Thanks for reading!

Plaid Bandana

I borrowed this scarf from my mom a while ago. I love the plaid pattern and colors, but it is square-shaped, so I never really knew exactly how to wear it. I recently got back from a short trip to France, where my french sister was wearing a bandana around her neck. Plaid old, classic printed bandana – with shorts, cowboy boots and a plain tee – and she was completely adorable and super trendy! So when I got back, I tried to take this french style and make it my own, and it completely worked here! I got a lot of compliments on this scarf, and it totally made this outfit… along with my new favorite booties that I scored from TJMaxx for just $35! Ankle booties are super trendy right now, and are perfect for seasonal weather like we have had lately in New England! TJ’s had a pretty good stock!

This is one of my favorite dresses, It is a real feel good piece. Maxi dresses are very popular, and have been for a few years. I had a work trip in Chicago earlier this Spring, and I couldn’t believe how many women around the city were so effortlessly rocking their maxi’s. It had to have been the most worn item of clothing walking around that city! It made me think I need to step up my game and get a few more nice maxi dress this summer. It is a very simple outfit that is always trendy. Pair your maxi with flats, or heels to lengthen your legs, and you are ready!

It could be the two-tone necklace, the gold chain-laced straps, or the white and gold mix that give off a Grecian vibe to this look. It was a very hot day, and the simplicity of this outfit was perfect for fighting the heat! This “braided” braid is my new favorite summer hair style. Since my hair has a lot of layers, when I do a regular braid, I always have pieces sticking out everywhere. With this style of braid, everything is very tight and there are no little ends sticking out. It is so easy to do, stays in all day and is hassle free! 3 Steps: Separate hair into 3 sections like you would to do a regular braid. Braid each section as its own braid. Then, use each braid as you would with sections, and braid them together. Good luck to all who attempt this easy breezy summer style! 🙂

I can’t believe it’s almost August already! This summer is going by too fast! This look is more of a casual/beachy look that I wore to work. This cute slouchy bag is one that I normally take with me to the beach, but I have been using it as more or an everyday bag lately. I have a few other bags, wallets and clutches that sadly never really got much use in the past other than their intended purpose. I have been putting some of these items to use lately and pairing them with different outfits and looks (like I did here). When attending a wedding for example, you could definitely use a wallet like a clutch, and it can really open up more options from items that you already own but probably never thought to use in that way! As long as it can provide enough space for your necessities and cell phone, what more do you really need for an event like that? We all know there are some really nice wallets out there, so why not show them off? Take a look in your closet and see what you could be carrying today to spice up your look instead of the same bag you used yesterday!

Another summer sun dress! Hope everyone had a good Holiday weekend, mine was nice and relaxing! This is such a cute summer dress, who would have thought that a seagull print would be so fun?!? There are so many sun dress options out there, and as I have said before, it is such an easy outfit that always looks cute and stylish. Plus, it is always nice to not have to think about what pair with your colored jeans or fun skirts, your outfit is already complete with a dress. EASY! These photo’s were taken in my back yard… I like to garden, so I am totally loving all of the blooming flowers in the background!

Outfit #1 info:

This striped dress is super comfy and kind of a staple piece. It was really cheap at H&M last year, but they have basically the same thing now too (see link below). I always tend to wear it with something over it because it is a little too form-fitting for me, but it always looks great with something over it. I could actually wear a sweater, tee, or even just plain tank and have the dress look more like a skirt too. Pretty versatile piece for a dress, and 100% worth the $8.00 I paid for it! I have always wanted to wear a dress paired with these little converse sneaks too, and today I made this work! It really tones down a dress by adding sneakers, and it’s not a very common look, but I always love it when I see it. Dresses and skirts are often being paired with the new trendy wedge sneakers too, but my Converse are a little more classic with this look. Like my new bright orange nail polish? I thought it was fun for the summer! 😉

Outfit #2 Info:

This outfit was more of a rainy day outfit. As of now, it doesn’t look like the weather will be great on Thursday, so at least I already have options in my head for both weather situations! I wear this cardi pretty often – it’s kind of my go-to! It is a little more orange/coral than red, but it worked for the look and people noted my holiday spirit! I have had this little apple-print tank for so long, and it has always been one of my favorites because it is so cute, comfy and easy to throw on. I found it fitting to wear my boat shoes with this outfit, I just thought they went with the theme. Some people boat on the 4th!

Yellow skinny jeans are the ultimate summer pants! There are SO many shades of yellow running around this year, from the neon highlighter skinnies to more of a mustard/gold tone. The colors make you look tan whatever shade you decide to purchase, and the color is so light and fun for the sunny summer months! I do wear these yellow pants often, but really like so many other shades that I see and want — like the neon tones.  I try to restrain… one pair of yellow pants should be enough… for now at least! I try my best to shop smart and not buy things I basically already have, but maybe next year I will find a pair that has a little more difference in it!

This outfit looked very nautical to me, but then again I am wearing boat shoes! The dress I got from H&M last year for just $8, and they have the same one this year, probably because it is a pretty basic piece. The Cardigan came from the company I work for, it’s a development sample, and it just so happens that most of our samples fit me (good perk)! I work for the Company listed below, ’47 Brand, they sell licensed sports apparel and every now and then we get a few blank samples, which I (not being a sports fan), love! The company is most recently known for making this “Boston Strong” hat. If you click here, you can learn more about the company if you are interested in seeing what they’re all about!
