Summer Nights

And... we're back!! My best friend has finally returned and we've hit the ground running; our travels had us so inspired we could hardly choose an outfit! We finally settled on this one: it's super feminine and so much fun! The mix of patterns and textures is a little daring, but the black leather belt divides it nicely and creates a very flattering silhouette. Em's sky high velvet Steve Madden peep toe platforms are impossible to walk in but make your legs look killer, especially with an a-line skirt like this lace one from H&M. We paired the outfit with my new favorite hair and makeup duo: I flipped my hair under to create a faux bob and pumped it up with some teasing. The long pieces in the front give it a modern edge and the red lips just add to the flirty effect of this outfit. All in all, this is definitely a pulled together, chic look that I'll be sure to sport during the fall. Maybe I'll throw in some tights and booties for winter! The possibilities are endless...until next time, xoxo.

Floral Fringe

Hello all! Whilst Em is still basking in the sun on a tropical beach in Hawaii (can you tell I'm jealous?), I'm stuck at home redecorating my room and slaving away (not really) at my internship. This is yet another post from June that we did before we were tragically separated for the entire summer. I believe this is my fourth pair of Zara shorts but I just fell in love with the floral print. The fringe shirt from Forever 21 mixed with the braids gives the look, to me, a hippie/western feel that I adore. One thing I especially love about the shirt, besides the rockin fringe, is the knotted triangle; without the bando it's a little scandalous, but I still love it. Bright lips are my go-to nowadays so we threw them in there just for kicks and the braids simply felt right. Anyway, Em comes back on Thursday (!!!!!!!) and we have a ton of inspiration to dig in to!

Oh Paris!

This is WAY overdue but here are some pictures from the rest of my trip! I had a wonderfully amazing time and I'm so thankful for the experience.
I got sick when I came back and then got swamped with camp and more traveling, but Em will be back soon and we plan on finishing off the summer strong!
