Bell Sleeved Off The Shoulder Top


Off the shoulder.
A hot trend last summer and is still very much trending big time into this summer.
And I'm not complaining! I love a good off the shoulder top with a pair of distressed denim shorts, a fun skirt, or with some fun overalls.
When I received this off the shoulder top from Romwe, I immediately fell in love and knew it was a great piece to style on my trip to Kauai. Not only is it super flattering, flowy and the perfect summer white, but the bell sleeves add a little extra fun & flare!

Tips & Tricks When Packing For A Trip To Europe



Where do I start?!
Packing for a trip to Europe can be so overwhelming, but don't worry, I'm here to help! I've been over to Europe four times now and I feel like I'm finally starting to learn what I REALLY need & what I don't. 



NECESSARY:

- COMFY SHOES: Ok, this is HUGE. Every time I go to Europe, I walk miles and miles everyday. No joke. If you want to see things & only have a limited time, you are up and at it early in the morning and go all day. When packing shoes, think to yourself "Can I walk 5 miles in these?" If not, leave them at home. I know it's hard but it's a waste of space if you pack them, wear them for an hour and can't wear them the rest of your trip. These Nikes and these sandals saved me on this trip!  (TIP: I start picking my shoes months in advance. I'll wear them around in my daily life and if they are comfy and neutral, they are coming with me. Also, I try to switch shoes throughout the day. If we head back to our hotel to grab something, I switch shoes. Gives your feet a break!)

The Perfect Summer Dress


Another embroidered dress?! I know that's what you're thinking.
But trust me, this one here is THE perfect dress for summer & honestly, what's the harm in adding another one to your closet?! (Absolutely nothing btw).

I talked about the embroidered trend that is sweeping the fashion blogs & store fronts here in this post and let me tell you, it's going to keep on trending all the way through summer. Embroidered bags, shoes, blouses, dresses, jeans; you name it, it's embroidered; it's trending.

Brunch at Ralph Lauren In Paris


Oh Ralph's in Paris, you have my heart.
Bryan & I were lucky enough to grab a patio table at Ralph's in Paris on Sunday for brunch during our time in the city last month. Honestly, it was like a dream come true for me. I’ve been for drinks at the Ralph's in Chicago, I never miss a cup of coffee at Ralph's coffee when I'm in New York, and I have dreamed about visiting the one in Paris for some time now.
What’s so special about it?
EVERYTHING.

Summer Sandals Under $50


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

It’s that time of the year again when we put away our cute ankle boots and bust out our summer sandals. Can you guys believe it’s June already?! 

When I’m looking for sandals in the summer, I’m looking for trendy styles, affordable prices & comfort. I can honestly say that some of the sandals from Target, J.Crew Factory and H&M are some of the comfiest sandals I own. Of course I love to splurge every now and again at Nordstrom but you know me, I like to shop! 

If you followed me along on my Europe trip via Instagram, you know that these pairs, here & here were such good purchases. Trendy, comfortable, matched with everything I brought, and under $25 each. I’ve been on the hunt to find some other cute summer sandals so I thought I would share my finds with all of you! 

I’m currently wearing this tassel pair on our flight to Kauai and I absolutely love them. (I sometimes find it hard to find the perfect white summer sandal - these are the closest I’ve found so far!) I recently bought these leopard slides and have already received a ton of compliments on them every time I wear them so far. Who doesn’t love all things leopard?! (I recommend sizing up a 1/2 size). 

I already have a pair of saddle color espadrille platforms but if I didn't, I'd be buying these ones. They are almost identical and under $30! I’m also loving the colorful tribal print on these sandals and the pom pom fringe on these lace up sandals is super on trend right now.

My point? You don’t have to spend over $100 to find a cute, trendy and comfortable sandal. The options are endless!

Happy sandal shopping!

Trending - Embroidered Details


I'm loving EVERYTHING embroidered right now. 
No joke, everything.
I mean, how cute is this babydoll embroidered blouse?
And don't get me started on this bag!

You get it.
But don't worry, it's not just me. Everyone is loving the embroidered trend on all things fashion related so I knew when we went to Europe I had to include a couple of fun embroidered dresses for the trip.

Styling Tie Waist Pants


The tie waist pants trend.
Have you tried it yet?!
When I first saw this trend rising, I immediately thought "there is no way those will look good on me". I'm 5'4 and the last thing I need is a baggier pant to make me look shorter & wider! All the petite girls out there know exactly what I'm talking about!
