Simple Style

I’ve noticed that as I’m getting older my style is changing to more of a minimalistic style. Having some great staple items that I can wear is always what I’m looking for when I’m shopping online. I know what you might be thinking, “Dressing like that can be boring!” But on the contrary, it doesn’t have to be! Here are some tips you can use to take your basic outfit to the next level!

  • Bold lip color
    • Something I love doing is wearing a colored lipstick or lip gloss when I’m wearing my basic black tee and jeans outfit. Normally I wear a lot of neutral lip colors so it really takes my outfit to the next level when I’m wearing a bold red or pink lip color. Here are some of my favorite lip colors from Colourpop that you can try out if you’re a newb to bold lip colors! All of which are on sale btw!!

  • Statement accessories
    • I’ve always believed that I can change anything that I’m wearing just by the accessories that I’m wearing. A basic tee and jeans can look super dull and boring. But when you pair it with a simple necklace, some funky earrings and bracelets, you’ve changed your entire outfit! Check out some of these super cute pieces that can really take your outfit to the next level!

  • Shoes
    • As almost every woman out there, I love shoes! Lately I’ve been into flats and fashion sneakers. But I do love wearing some cute wedges or heels for church or other events. A basic tee and jeans outfit can be totally transformed just by the type of shoe you’re wearing! During the daytime, you can rock the fashion sneakers for comfort. Than for date night, you can switch out those cute sneakers for some cute heels and you’re ready to go!

Time for a weekend getaway! 

So this past weekend my husband and I decided to fly down to Orlando to celebrate my cousin’s Sweet 16. It was so nice to just get away for a weekend. Get out of our normal routine and enjoy ourselves. I purposefully got ahead in both of my grad classes so that I didn’t have to worry about doing homework so it was just a great time.This trip my husband and I decided to only pack a carry on, which of course is very difficult for someone who loves clothes as much as me! But I decided, I wanted to try out our Stella & Dot Getaway bag and see just how much stuff I can fit in!


Of course, I needed to extend the bag to make sure that I fit everything in it! But I was successfully able to fit the following in my bag:

1. Make up bag/brushes
2. Blow Dryer
3. Flat Iron
4. Curling Iron
5. Toiletries
6. Pair of heels
7. Pair of sandels
8. Pair of mules
9. Jumpsuit
10. 2 dresses
11. 4 tops
12. My husbands hats (2 of them that he somehow snuck in my bag without me knowing)


I almost have a feeling I might be missing something but I’ll leave the list at that. Oh! My jewelry! I also packed my Stella & Dot jewels for the party. All in all, I loved traveling with this bag! And trust me, I’m a very honest person so I wouldn’t just say that I love something if I truly didn’t love it. I did keep checking the corners to make sure the seams were popping because I was afraid that I packed it too tight, but nothing happened! Everything stayed perfect! I would definitely recommend traveling with this bag.. If you haven’t purchased one, click this link and get your own! We some super cute prints to choose from too!

Let me know what you think! Xoxo

My Fall favorites!!

Here are some my Fall Favorites right now!!! The first five items I’m going over are all from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the last three are from the new Fall line at Stella & Dot!

First up are those super cute caramel suede mules from Kristin Cavallari. These are super comfortable and fit so great on my feet. I did find out that they fit perfectly to the length of my foot. I contemplated going up a size but I chose not too because the rest of the shoe fits perfectly around my foot. I purchased a size 8 and normally wear a size 8 shoe.Main Image - Kristin Cavallari 'Capri' Mule (Women)

Second is that gorgeous bell sleeve top. That color is amazing. I cannot get enough of it. The bow details on the side are everything. I normally wear a size large and I ordered a size large. This top fits so perfectly on me. I have a wider back so I usually find it hard to purchase tops but this one fits perfect. I’m so in love with it and can’t wait to start wearing it!

Third is this Billabong sweatshirt. I also purchased a large and it fits great. This sweater is extremely comfortable and cozy and will be perfect once the weather starts to cool off. It does have a baggy fit to it but the size I purchased still allowed for that baggy feel. I purchased a large, and it fits pretty much how the picture up top looks.

Fourth is this Adidas sleeveless tank. This is the first athletic type shirt that I have purchased and just love it. I’ve seen many of my friends with these athletic shirts and I’ve been on the look out for one that I could wear. I order a large in this top because I wasn’t sure how it would fit. I figured it was a little bigger than normal, it would be fine, because I don’t really like tight fitting clothing anyways. I will say that I am 5 foot 3 inches tall and this top goes down until about a hands length from my knee. So I could throw on some leggings with this top or just wear skinny jeans and tuck in the front a bit for a more slouchy look.

Fifth are these Steve Madden thigh high boots. Now I’m a little sad about this purchase because I decided to return them. I am completely in love with these boots and the style. I’ve been wanting a thigh high pair of boots but I found that these were not the ones for me. I found that the shape of my legs didn’t complement the style of the shoe. Because they are a thigh high boot and my thighs are on the thicker side, they were actually not comfortable for me to wear. If you don’t have thick thighs, then these are definitely the boots for you! They are super cute and I’m bummed I can’t keep them but I gotta go with what is comfy!

Sixth is this new Taj Clutch from Stella and Dot!! This clutch is seriously giving me life!! The embroidered detail on this is beyond amazing. I love the design and the colors. These colors are so versatile that they will go with so many different colors that you will wear in Fall. Not only is this an amazing date night bag, you can also rock this with your favorite tee shirt and jeans for a super cool day time look!

FIVE DIFFERENT WAYS!! The detail on this piece is amazing. The mix of colors and texture really take this piece to the next level.
