The Dress

When I saw this dress on Topshop, I knew I had to have it. And when it arrived in the mail a month or so ago, I fell so much more in love with it! The construction is with this thick and heavyweight satin material that gives the dress it’s shape and form.

All in all, I think this will be a staple in my closet. I know it will be easy to dress up, so I opted to feature it here with a casual look. My trusty (and ancient) monk loafers are always a go-to when I want to look polished and slightly preppy. The green handbag was a vintage find.

What do you guys think of this look?

Mixing New and Old

Really into the cropped top trend that has been so popular as of late. Though I’ll probably never have the guts to rock one without a top underneath, I still love the look as layered like I wore here. This leather top is vintage and has been sitting in my closet for quite a while. The pants and heels are from Madewell – and I have to say I have not been able to stop perusing that site! There are so many items that I love, specifically the Camo Jacket and all the t-shirts from the brand Rxmance – a company I have loved for YEARS. What do you guys think of this look?

That heading is in reference to the weekend and how it always goes by way too fast. Don’t you agree?

Bought these great fitting pants from J. Crew a while back. I love how they fit. High-waisted, slightly wide-legged, and the perfect length. Slimming and flattering. What do you guys think?

Hope everyone has a great week! XO

I often look to streetstyle shots when searching for style inspiration as opposed to runways – it’s a reflection of how “real” people dress. I love when streetstyle fashionistas mix high and low and make their looks moderately attainable. Here are some shots from Paris Fashion Week – so beautiful. I love the eclectic mix of styles captured by Vanity Fair in these streetstyle shots. I’ll definitely be taking some style cues from these looks in the coming weeks!
