How to Upgrade a Casual Look with T-Shirt + Jeans This Summer

ALDO Maxence White Summer 2017 Flats

Let’s do things a little different this summer and give the classic basics a new twist.


Colors + Pom Poms | Spring Statement Earrings

Solange Pom Pom Earrings by Baublebar Statement Accessories

Accessories play a very big role in style — it sends a message, gives an outfit character, and adds texture. Attracting lots of attention this Spring, I plan on taking my style to a more diverse level by wearing vibrantly fun statement earrings.


Tribal Monochrome


I can appreciate a long, cozy cardigan any given day. Now, add a cool tribal print to it and some fringe and you’ve got yourself a trendy winter piece! There’s no doubt I knew I HAD TO HAVE this super soft cardigan that I accidentally found hiding in the Forever 21 clearance section. This particular day, F21 was offering BOGO with the purchase of each clearance item. So technically, I got this little gem for free 😉







Cardigan: Forever 21 (similar here here) | Dress: TJ Maxx (similar here & here) | Shoes: a.n.a. (similar here) | Headband: ASOS | Purse: Aldo (on sale!) | Earrings: Forever 21

The cascading open front and ribbed cuffs take this cardigan from basic to effortless and chic reaaaal quick. Not to mention my favorite part, some fringe detailing. I love how incredibly soft and lightweight it feels. You can certainly pair it with a dress, long sleeve top + jeans or leggings. Long cardigans are here to stay, go ahead and treat yo’self!



Pop of Cool


Ever since my nails were painted a deep purple, I keep reaching for different items in a similar color. Funny thing is the other night, I was getting ready for an outing and spotted these colored pants hiding in the back of my closet. It was exactly what I needed to find, with my new purple obsession & all.

Cool-toned pieces make for a nice touch of color combined with neutral prints/patterns. Cool tones are shades of blue, purple, green, teal, and pink. This geometric printed cami was the perfect top to go with these pants! What I love about these bottoms is how easy they are to dress up or down. Add a nice jacket and some heels (like these suede ones) to transition your look from day to night.
