Playing Catch Up

I know I am SO behind on updating this blog, but I finally have time to sit down and put this together.

Last week I wore this adorable skirt from Macy’s paired with a shirt from Forever 21, heels from Aldo, and my favorite Kate Spade cross body bag. My elephant necklace is also from Forever 21, and the tassel wand is from Studio Mucci; I totally felt like a fairy princess!

This look would be perfect for a fancy dinner out with the boyfriend (hint, hint, wink, wink).

I also wore one of my favorite summer rompers from Lilly Pulitzer! It is so bright and colorful and it just puts me in a good mood.

I paired it with my new Kate Spade bangle and Jack Rogers, but I have also worn this with wedges to make it dressier.

What are your favorite summer looks?

Scallops+Polka Dots=Perfection

Today I wore a new pair of shorts with some old favorites from my closet!

I had seen these J. Crew shorts all over tumblr, and had been coveting them for weeks before I found them in the clearance section. Luckily they still had my size, and for only $24 (using an extra 40% off code)! The scallop detail adds just the right amount of whimsy to a pretty classic look.

I paired them with a plain dark navy t-shirt, my favorite Jack Rogers flats (similar), and a Kate Spade bag.

And to anyone who’s wondering, I generally don’t have a problem mixing brown, black, and navy. Obviously in suiting situations or formal wear you should pick one and stick to it, but on a casual day I treat them all as neutrals.

To finish off the look, I added this Elephant Necklace from Forever 21! Recently they have really amped up their jewelry selections!

Shout out to my awesome boyfriend for constantly putting up with my fashion nonsense and for being my photographer!

FriYAY

One of my cousins has the cutest Instagram hashtag: Friyay! I figured this would be the perfect way to end the week and begin my blog.

A Fun Story:

I read on the BBC that Latabe the Elephant from the West Midlands Safari Park took the first “elfie” or elephant selfie when a park visitor dropped his cellphone!
