I decided to keep it vintage and rock some high-waisted denim the other day. For me, wearing a top that falls directly at the waistline is more flattering for my 5’3″ frame. And I absolutely love the pink and white stripes! They really give you that casual, summer vibe! You can shop this look below! Happy Friyay!! ❤

This is how errands should be ran … comfortably! Baggy tee, stretchy jeans, and vans are always my go to for a day of errand running. I also, almost always throw on a leather jacket to make the look more chic and put together. With all the holiday shopping I’ve been doing lately, I’ve practically lived in threads of these types! And you can too, by shopping the links below …

Gloomy day gray.

Gloomy days call for black and gray. I really didn’t mean for that to rhyme but I kinda like that it did. Anyway, today was super cloudy and a little chilly in the evening so I decided to throw on my go-to blazer I purchased from Express a couple years ago. I love it because it has a 3/4 length sleeves making it suitable for all seasons, or at least in my opinion.

I always favor a simple, basic look and even more so if the look consists mostly of the color black. I decided to mix it up a little by wearing a charcoal pant from H&M. My most favorite thing to do is to add a statement piece to an outfit. Especially one that stands out mostly due to the rest of the outfit being, well, basic. My Rebecca Minkoff Large Finn Clutch was clearly the statement piece of this look. I love the edginess of it and all the movement it has. The strap is detachable from the inside of the bag allowing it to be a true clutch, which I freakin love!  To shop all the items in the above pics, click on the links below …

 Looking for a quick ‘Thursday night out’ look? Throw all your basics together in one outfit! We all have a neutral, oversized sweater folded up nicely on a shelf in our closets, right? And even though I consider leather pants a basic, some people don’t, so any dark pant would work. Black heels, black clutch, a simple, black choker to sass it up, and you’re ready to go! BTW this is me attempting to lighten up my usual all black everything obsession …

So I know fall is right around the corner and everyone is starting to pull out their cozy sweaters and earth tone colors to showcase what this years trends will be, but I don’t know, I’m just not feeling it yet! Maybe it’s because here in San Diego, it’s still 75 and sunny! The transitioning of seasons will probably be something that’ll take a little time getting used to fashion wise. Trust me, this Mid-West girl isn’t complaining!! I know the temps will drop a little (not much though) and I’ll be pulling out leather jackets and thigh high boots like everyone else, but for now, I’m sticking with my cutoffs …

Punta Cana Love.

While I’m sitting here with a serious case of spring fever, I realized I have yet to share my favorite photos from our trip to Punta Cana! A lot of them have been posted to my Instagram, but quite a few have not! Punta Cana was beyond beautiful. The temps were around 85 degrees everyday with usually a shower or two throughout the day. The ocean was amazing, warm, and bright blue with lots of crashing waves. However, the timing of getting into the water was tricky, without perfect timing you could easily get knocked down and carried to shore and have a hard time getting back up … I’m speaking from experience! Anyway, here a some captures from our stay at the beautiful Breathless Resort in Punt Cana, Dominican Republic …

 

If anyone has questions or would like more information about Breathless and/or our stay in Punta Cana please feel free to comment below … I’d love to help!
