It’s a cool, cool summer

Sometimes trying to be stylish in this heat is a challenge. I’ve probably worn this H&M tank top 20 times since I’ve purchased it. The print is unique and style flowy and flattering. I kept it simple with small stud earrings, 90s inspired flatform sandals and my go-to sunglasses.

Off the shoulder + kick flares

I love it when local bloggers are able to get together and mingle [especially when food is involved]. The lovely Candace from Live Love and Read put together a night of bloggers+tacos at the Kitchen Columbus last night and of course I used the opportunity for a photo opp.

I have purchased a few items from Zara over the years but would always end up returning due to fit. This off the shoulder crop top is the first purchase I made that I actually kept. I love the tops unique print and style. I paired the top with Mango high waisted kick flare jeans and simple black sandals.

Unconventional Bridesmaids

Brides nowadays are allowing a lot more contrast when it comes to their wedding party:

  • Some still go full blown matching style + color
  • There’s matching colors but different styles
  • Different hues of the same color with matching styles
  • Different hues of the same color with different styles

..And in my case, a list of colors with free reign over print, length, material and style.

This was by far the easiest [and wallet friendly] bridesmaids dress I’ve ever had to find!

A lot of the other bridesmaids went the floral route, but I chose a solid taupe/gray maxi with high halter neckline and double slit detail. It was also fun to help some ladies pick out their dresses and see everyone’s style come together and make something beautiful.

Tell me brides-to-be, would you be this laid back/versatile? Just take a look at the finished product and you may think twice about going the traditional route!

Bright coat spring staple

I was on the lookout for a great winter to spring transition jacket/coat [you know, the kind that’s not too heavy, not too light]. I found this perfect shade of red beauty and had to have it! The jacket also has the perfect amount of arm room [super important for layering] so anytime it’s a little chillier outside a chunky sweater fits perfectly under it!

What’s your go-to transition jacket? Let me know in the comments below, because I’m still on the prowl for the perfect trench coat!
