Keep It Simple!

When getting ready for the day, I like to follow the “rule of three.”  It’s a concept that makes looking put together a lot simpler and cut your dressing time in half in my own opinion. The “rule of three” basically consists of 1 top, 1 bottom, and 1 accessory piece (jacket, hat, scarf, etc.) The third piece of your outfit just completes the look, and it makes sense. It takes an outfit that falls flat, to an outfit that stands out!

Here are some of my favorite “3rd pieces” as of late!

New Trails

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is go for hikes. It’s a great way to stay in shape, get outside, and just explore! Joey took me to a small trail right behind my apartment at Chris Green Lake and it was really fun! Not a lot of work required, but perfect for a last minute stroll, and the view wasn’t bad either!

Trend to Love: Ear Jackets

So I don’t know if this counts as cheating, but I made a promise to myself this summer to try more statement earring looks. Now I bought my first pair of these earrings back in January only because they came in a set of really darling studs, which I love! Recently, I’ve just been really into them and I’m including them in my statement challenge!

I really like that they are a little something extra but not too over the top if you don’t normally rock the statement earring trend like yours truly! Most of my favorites I’ve found at ILY Couture and wear them all the time!

Kimono Obsessed!

If you asked me 3 years ago, I would have said NO WAY to kimonos! It crazy, but I used to only like clothing that was fitted to my body and now the more flow it has, the more I like it!

What I’m loving about kimonos is that they come in all prints and can be the perfect amount of POP that your outfit needs. I also love them for the spring and summer time for when the weather is too warm for a cardigan but not warm enough to rock a tank top just yet!

In the past couple of months I’ve found some that I just can’t live without so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you all! And they are all pretty affordable! (Also they look great with leggings which is what matters most!)

Tassel Trends!

With warmer weather making it’s way to us quickly, the fun spring styles are coming along with it! I love the Spring because it means florals, chambray, sundresses with cardigans and this season TASSELS! You can find them everywhere! Brands are incorporating them onto tops, bags, shoes, jewelry and so much more and I can’t get enough! Here are some of my favorites!

A Bohemian Winter!

Recently, I have been really loving adding touches of bohemian chic to my wardrobe. Celebrities like Sienna Miller and Vanessa Hudgens have been rocking the boho look for years and know how to go all out or just have a slight boho vibe to their looks. I was recently on pinterest and found a photo of Sienna Miller looking so classic and cool that I had to try my own version of it!

Here is the image of the lovely Sienna that sparked my interest!

Valentine’s Date Night!

The most romantic time of the year is quickly approaching, Valentines day! While it’s not my favorite holiday, I love an excuse to get dressed up and be surrounded with hearts and chocolate! Now I agree that Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to involve a lavish dinner combined with chocolate strawberries (however I wouldn’t be opposed to these!) and rose petals. However I do love dressing the part for this particular day! So to help y’all out, I’ve put together some perfect options for whatever kind of date night is planned, whether it’s a nice dinner, casual movie date, or a romantic night in, your attire will be on point! And I’ve chosen these items from my favorite shops that are super affordable for you ladies!

Now I chose 2 looks for a nice dinner out on the town. The first dress is your more traditional red lace dress that is always a hit. It is a classic and would look perfect with statement earrings to give it some sparkle! The second dress is a playful pink dress that is definitely flirtatious!

This next option is my favorite and I actually purchased it for myself to wear on this very special day! Since I’m a natural redhead, I tend to stay away from wearing too many reds and pinks. This berry dress is perfect for me and anyone else who is not exactly a #1 fan of those two colors (Fun Fact: it comes in those traditional valentine’s colors too!)! Pair it with  a snazzy statement necklace and it will be a great outfit for milkshakes and a movie with your amazing date!

While it’s fun to go out and about with your loved one for Valentine’s Day, sometimes a cozy night in is all you need! But hey, you can still have some fun dressing up for your one and only! Here are some cozy cute options for you to wear for a homemade meal and desserts on the couch!

The key for this look is to just add little heart pieces somewhere on your outfit! I love my heart elbow patch shirt and you all did as well so I decided to share it with you all again here! It’s on sale but going fast! I love these jeans, and they’re FREE! Just take a pair of jeans you don’t wear too often and apply fabric pant to them in heart shapes! Super cute idea and it updates an item you already have in your closet!
