I Heart You

Awear Blouse, J.Crew Skirt, Prada Wedges, Heart Shaped Glasses (from random boutique, similar here), Nordstrom Rings c/o, K. Slademade Clutch c/o, Sarah Chloe Bangle via BaubleBar, Essie “Tart Deco” Nailpolish

I bought these heart shaped sunglasses on a whim last summer (see here) for $15 and thought they would probably be a one, maybe two time wear. To my surprise, they are actually one of my favorite accessories. They add the perfect whimsical touch to any outfit. This is an easy summer look, simple blouse and skirt combination. This blouse is such a steal from Awear and can be worn with so many things this summer. It’s a great top for the 4th of July!

With this outfit, I’m wearing this blue stone ring, this infinity ring and these rose rings from Nordstrom’s “dainty rings” collection. See my last look here.

The Little Leopard Bag

Ali Ro Dress c/o (and here), Clare Vivier Bag, Dior Sunglasses, Prada Wedges (similar here), Nordstrom Rings c/o, Estée Lauder Lipgloss, Sarah Chloe Bracelet via BaubleBar 

This is one of the dresses that I packed with me on my brief trip to Italy last week. It has everything I really look for in a dress- fit n flare shape, perfect length, unique details- and I love the black piping. I’ve paired it with neutral accessories here (yes, I do count leopard as a neutral) but I’m also planning on wearing bright colored sandals and/or bag with it as well. I also snagged up this leopard Clare Vivier bag right before my trip and it’s already sold out online! I bought it at ShopBop, so hopefully they’ll get more in. I’m such a huge fan of her bags, I get such great use out of them. I also really love this leather duffle that’s the same shape of my bag here and comes in a few different shades.

I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve always preferred dainty jewelry that I can wear everyday over something chunky and trendy. I always have studs in (I’ve been wearing these a lot lately), a few delicate necklaces and multiple rings on each hand. I’ve teamed up with a Nordstrom to show you guys five looks this week- all of them including their dainty rings, since naturally it was the perfect fit! In this look, I’m wearing this skull one, this gold squiggle one and this star one. They’re all a really great price and perfect for stacking and layering up!

Feeling Fancy

ASOS Top, TopShop Skirt (old, similar here), Nicholas Kirkwood Heels (other colors here and here), Saint Laurent Bag

I’m usually one that goes for comfort and practicality, but sometimes I just feel like dressing up for absolutely no reason. I work from home and aside from meetings or a date night, I’m usually only dressing for myself. It puts me in a completely new mood and I somehow seem to be more productive. Maybe I should do it more often!

Happy Friday & first day of Summer!
