Summer Casual: Vintage Tee & Boho Shorts


Hey guys! I decided to share with you one of my favorite casual looks for August. It's super comfy and has some really cute details that make it fun! My sandals have this awesome snake print on them that's really unique, and the laser cutout shorts make me feel fancy any time of the day. It's an outfit that's quick to put together for those days you don't want to put much into your outfit.

When I was younger I thought that fashion was never meant to be comfortable. Especially when I was introduced to heels! What a pain they were at first! But thankfully, I learned over time that chic casual looks are easily achieved when you pay attention to two important details...


1) Fabric/ Materials - A lot of fabrics are more cozy to wear than others. We wouldn't be caught wearing leather pajamas for a reason! Some of my favorite comfortable materials to wear are fleece and cotton. My least favorite is wool. Times a thousand!!

2) Style & Fit - The fit of the clothing can really help an outfit feel laid-back. I like to generally try and include one loose or over-sized piece into my comfy outfits. If you wish to wear jeans search for ones in a boyfriend style. Just remember to keep one piece oversized and the rest of your outfit more fitted. This keeps your look balanced, instead of frumpy.

Pack a Punch: Colorful College Bags & Backpacks

Hey guys! Hope everyone is having a great week! One thing I've always loved about this time of year were the back to school sales. Mainly because I'm a stationary addict...but also because of all the new backpacks! I really gravitate towards dark totes and backpacks, and last year I decided to go out of the norm and purchase something colorful instead! I got a tote that was navy, orange and pink with an aztec design. To my surprise it turned out to be one of my favorite bags ever. It went well with so many outfits...especially the darker ones in Winter! Now I'm all for owning colorful totes and backpacks. 

If you've never tried one out yourself, I highly recommend you give it a shot! Here are some of my top choices out in stores right now. Some of the bags are a little more expensive, but splurging a little on them can be worth it. The pricier bags are made with better materials, and are likely to last longer.

Boho Chic | Floral Kimono Jacket and Acid Wash Shorts


Hey guys! I can't lie...I'm pretty upset that it's already August. Just the idea of wearing sweaters in a few months is enough to give me the chills! That's exactly why I decided to buy a kimono a few weeks ago. I think I drove my boyfriend crazy in my search for the perfect one, but it was worth it! Kimonos are generally made with light materials to keep you just warm enough while those Fall temps close in. In other words it's the perfect piece for late September! Plus, you can't go wrong with the effortless boho vibe they radiate!
