Fedora Faze: Part 2

Shirt: TJ Maxx | Shorts: Joe's Jeans | Hat: Target (similarsimilar) | Shoes: Steve Madden (similar) | Bag: Michael Kors | 
Jewelry: DKNY Watch, JCrew Bracelet (similar), Target Bracelet (similar, similar), Necklace (Vintage)

I wanted to show the same look as Part 1 for a more casual summer day! By mixing up the jeans and wedges to shorts and flat sandals, I could easily go from day-to-night especially on the weekend where  denim in a staple. With summer being the most popular time of the year to travel, how easy would transition outfits like this be to pack?! Beach: shopping in shorts - dinner out in comfy wedges. Europe: hot day in shorts - cool night in jeans. Tourist City: sightseeing in flats - date night in heels. I've made my life so much easier with simple changes such as these over the past year. As I would suggest, start buying different, unique pieces in the same color to make your transitions just as simple. i.e. dark denim jeans:dark denim shorts, cognac wedges:cognac flats:cognac pumps, orange top:orange cardigan, red shorts:red skinny jeans, green linen pants:green skirt. Hope this might inspire a little inspiration!

Enjoy your weekend friends:)

Fedora Faze: Part 1

Shirt: TJ Maxx | Jeans: Joe's Jeans | Hat: Target (similar, similar) | Shoes: ALDO | Bag: Michael Kors |
Jewelry: DKNY Watch, JCrew Bracelet (similar), Necklace (Vintage)

As much as I've searched for a Fedora hat...after trying on every single one at JCrew...Gap...BananaRepublic...TJ Maxx...Marshalls, where do I find the one I've fallen for? The Men's Dept. at Target! I say it a phase, but I don't foresee myself getting tired of this "faze" anytime soon.  I've donned the hat at the pool, running errands, posing for pictures, being offered beer while taking pictures, and oh the waterpark's lazy river. What favorite accessory have you been in love with all summer?

Stay tuned for Part II coming soon. Happy Wednesday Friends :)

Sorry I've been MIA here lately! But let me catch you up to speed. My photographer left me for Gonzaga University 3 weeks ago today so I have completely run out of outfit pictures to post. I'm in the process of recruiting another photographer if you know of any candidates?! I celebrated my birthday June 25th and as a birthday present, my sweet boyfriend Greg, took me on a trip up to Nashville for the weekend. We shopped til we dropped, spent a day in the sun on the water, and better yet got to hang out with each other for 2 1/2 days. That was the first for us with our crazy schedules. But I wanted to keep you in the loop and decided to share a little glimpse into my life lately through a collage of photos. My motto throughout these photos: YOLO. You Only Live Once! Hope you enjoy! I'd love to hear about what you've been up to lately...

With Love,

Fab Foral...

Shirt: Kenar via Marshalls | Pants: Gap | Sandals: Franco Sarto via TJ Maxx | Bracelets: Target | Earrings: Charming Charlie (old)

Switching up my backdrop this post with my old elementary school I attended 1-3 grade! So, needless to say, I appear to be strategically posing waiting to be picked up by my school bus. I guess the saying is true "I am still a kid at heart."

Florals are coming back in a fashion frenzy rage. But I dislike the prints that looks like it came off of my neighbors old quilt. So I tend to stick the the fab, modern, large print florals that feature bright colors. As promised in my last post, I also wanted to show off a few birthday gifts. These chic, layer bangles came from Target that my sister picked out for me. I was sorely lacking in the black bracelet department. So I'd say she did a really great job. You can check out her blog here: Tall Girl Musings.

How are you wearing your florals this season?

Disclaimer: Excuse the crazy mess of a hairstyle. I went au naturale with my waves, hair mousse, and a diffuser and had to pin it up to keep from competing with my fru-fru ruffles up around my neck.
