Ripped Denim and Lace

On casual days where I still want to feel and look put together, I combine my two favorite things: ripped denim and a lace shirt. The combination is classic and comfy, yet looks amazing for any occasion.

I’m sporting my favorite Blank NYC dark, ripped denim with a white lace ToSave.com shirt. (Check one of my previous posts on my review of the items I received from them!) I paired the look with a simple khaki jacket and white converse.

Lace shirts are a huge trend for spring and summer. It combines the sexiness of lingerie and the comfiness of a casual cami. To dress the look up, pair a strappy heel and clutch or large tote bag. The look is versatile, simple, and sure to turn heads!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Buys


The #NSale is back and better than ever! It’s the time of year where lovers of fashion and all things Nordstrom can get a peek into fall’s must haves and purchase it at some of the best prices around. Brands like Tory Burch, Sam Edelman, Touche, Astr, BP and more are on sale for great amazing prices.

The sale opened to the public Friday July 22nd, and I ran to my closest Nordstrom at 10 am to get everything that I was eyeing and more. I purchased quite a few fall staples that I will definitely be sporting on the cooler days of fall and winter. All products are listed with links to the website. The only thing not on sale I purchased was the Articles of Society denim. But for $64, I thought these were a steal considering other denim in the store were over $100 on sale. I’m also picky with jeans, so when I tried these on and fell in love, I knew I needed to grab them!

Bringin’ (Sexy) Preppy Back

Dressing preppy doesn’t always mean wear J crew and polo shirts. You can look preppy and feel classic and edgy at the same time. My outfit consists of some staple pieces that should be in every girls wardrobe!

I started by pairing some of my favorites dark wash skinny jeans with a jean blouse layered with a soft knit sweater. I specifically chose one with a cute, sassy logo, but you can always choose one that’s a solid color or has stripes. Layering these two pieces took some time to adjust, but I finally set them in a place that was comfortable on my body. I paired this look with a classy beaded necklace that included colors that complimented the rest of the neutral tones. If you do not have a beaded necklace, a big, chunky jeweled necklace would look just as fabulous. To finish off the look, I wore my chestnut, loafer flats with little gold studs along with my red peacoat. This pop of color brought the entire look together, adding a little spice. Of course this look can be rearranged to your liking, but these items are key to anyone’s closet in creating a simple easy look!
