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!

Glam Meets Cool

Helmut Lang Blazer, StyleMint Tee, Otte Shorts, Sweet & Spark Vintage Necklace (also love this one), Ann Taylor Pumps, Saint Laurent Bag, Bare Minerals Lipgloss

Adding a vintage rhinestone necklace is the quickest way to add a little glam to an “edgier” look. I usually downplay something really sparkly with a worn in tee or ripped skinny jeans. You can usually find a blinged out necklace or two in my bag ready to thrown on at any given moment.
