Gingham and Ruffles

I’m super excited to share this outfit because its finally getting warm here in Chicago and I’m busting out all my warm weather clothes. I recently went to New York (why I haven’t been posting lately) and I did so much shopping. I couldn’t wait to share all the new outfits with you guys. These pants were defiantly at the top of my list to share with you  because the minute I saw them in store I knew I loved them! They’re a light cotton and very soft, perfect for summer. I’ve been looking for a Gangnam print pair of pants for a while now and I found these were perfect. They even have a cute ruffle detailing on the pockets. Since these pants are definitely a statement I focused the rest of the outfit around them. I paired a plain cotton white tank top and a simple pair of low block heels. I got these pants at Zara and while looking through their website. I found that they have so many great pairs of pants to choose from for summer.(all links below)

Easy and effortless

As I was thinking of outfit idea’s to show you guys, I thought of some of my go to outfits that I always wear if I need a quick, effortless outfit. This outfit is super basic but you can change it in so many different ways. Here I’m wearing these super cool wax jeans with zippers on the ankles, I choose these because they add a little more to the outfit rather then a plain pair of jeans. A huge staple for any wardrobe is plain t-shirts, my favorite place to get t-shirts is j.crew/j.crew factory and Madewell. The fit of your t-shirt is actually super important because if you have the wrong fit it can create an illusion that can negatively change the proportions of your body.  This is something I suggest to everyone to try different styles and decide which they gravitate to the most because it makes a huge difference. This is a great outfit you can throw on quickly as well as pair together with pretty much anything to get many different looks.

Sweatshirt Dresses for Spring

As spring approaches I’m starting to slowly wear warmer weather items. When its warm out I love to wear dresses but when its still a little cold out dresses are not the most practical thing. This is where I love sweatshirt dresses, they’re cozy and girly while still warm. Here I’m wearing this gray one with cute tie cross details on the shoulders. Since this is a casual look I paired this with some slip on’s. I definitely suggest getting a pair of slip ons for spring, they are so comfortable and they don’t look as bulky like a lot of sneakers. The ones I’m wearing here are from Van’s, I have another pair in white also. Since slip ons have been super popular in the last couple years, so many brands make them but I would recommend Vans or Steve madden. I couldn’t find my dress anywhere to link it but I linked some super similar ones below.

Spring Transitioning sweater

As spring is coming slowly, I’ve started to plan some outfits. In Chicago we don’t get much of spring its really only a week or two, then it goes from unbearably cold to hot as heck. Since we still have spring months and every one really just wants to break out white and shorts, I decided to blog about some transition outfits so hopefully this is useful to wherever you live. Here I’m wearing an adorable white sweater with side tie’s. This sweater is a great transitional piece because it would look super cute with jeans as well as a pair of shorts, depending on the weather. Here I paired it with just a pair of black coated jeans and some knee high boots. I love these boots, I would definitely recommend adding a pair of these to your wardrobe. These boots go along with the trend of the thigh high boots but, they stop just above the knee. I found I love these because they elongate my legs more then thigh high boots.

My Denim Staple’s

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’m super excited to share this post because denim is one of my favorite things ever. It was hard to choose just a couple pairs that are my staple’s but I did it. I picked out all the denim I could not live with out and what I believe everyone should have in there closet. I chose pretty basic category’s to show just a general idea of each type, but I think you can never have enough jeans.

Joe’s Jeans

The plain skinny: Of course I had to start with the plain skinny jean. These are as basic as it gets really. You can wear these with seriously almost everything and they look amazing. The pair I’m wearing here are from joe’s jeans and I 10/10 recommend, they are so soft and they fit perfectly. This type of jeans I would splurge on because you will defiantly get your moneys worth.

The black skinny: Black skinny jeans are defiantly something everyone should have in their closet. If you have the right fit they make your legs look so long and slim. This is another one I would suggest splurging on because you wear them so much you want them to be comfortable and good looking. Mine are from Joe’s and I would defiantly recommend.

American Eagle

The Ripped Skinny: I love to wear ripped jeans when I’m wearing something more plain or want to add something more to my outfit. For ripped jeans wether or not to splurge is kind of blurry in my opinion, because if you wear them enough you want a comfortable, a good looking pair, but in my experience the rip’s and distressing tend to fall apart and not look as good anymore. This pair is from American Eagle and they are ok but the denim is kind of itchy and the fit is not the best but for the price they are pretty ok.

The boyfriend Jean: Boy friend jeans in the past couple years have really started to make more of an appearance. I love them, they are so comfortable and they look great. This pair is from American Eagle. Normally I’m not a fan of American Eagle jeans but I’ve had these for a while now and they are still as soft and comfortable as when I bought them.

Statement jeans: Now this one I was hesitant to put in because I don’t think statement jeans are an essential to everyones closet but I think they are still fun so I added them anyways. My style is pretty much made up of basic’s so I don’t normally buy jeans like these but when I saw them I had to have them. I thought they are were so cool. They’re ripped but they have these designs printed on them and patches placed everywhere. These are some thing I would defiantly save on because your not going to get as much wear out of them because they are memorable so you cant wear them to often.
