Pretty Things I Like...

I was just perusing around the world wide web, and there are sooo many cute things out there right now!! Usually I find just a couple of things that I like, but lately there are pieces on every sight that are just amazing. Also, right now stores are bringing in the summery, lighter clothes and putting a lot of spring items on sale. Right now is a great time to do some shopping, and here are my favorite buys:

This dress is super light and can be worn in so many ways! I would suggest over a bathing suit, with skinny jeans as a tunic, or maybe even belted as a top. The hint of color amongst the tie dye "stripes" gives this dress versatility to mix with many different types of accessories. I would recommend either gold accessories, or a bright color, such as a coral beaded bracelet. 

Cost: $98.00

This dress is the perfect summer date dress. Also, this would be a good number to wear to any graduation events that you may be attending this year. If you are going out late at night, pair this dress with black booties and a black cardigan! If you need to dress it up, I would suggest a red clutch and open toed black pumps. This dress is extremely neutral- you can literally wear it any way you like! This is also a good Mother's Day gift for mom to wear to work =)

Cost: $295.00

ASH Monoi Studded Flat

These are my favoriteee sandals (so far) this year. The dark coffee color will compliment with so many things, especially with all of those bright colors you'll be wearing this summer! Their bohemian meets Western meets hardcore- so they are sure to go with every upcoming trend =)

Cost: $208.00

Marc by Marc Jacobs Buckle Up Bikini

This bathing suit speaks for itself. There are two trends implemented in this one suit: colorblock and the bandeau top. The straps are removable, so you dont have to worry about awkward tan lines! The buckle details are adorable and break up the colors really nicely. Just pair this suit with some shades and you are ready for summer!

Cost: $170

I think the cut off look is really cute. I would pair these shorts with a loose plaid button-up or a flowy hippie tunic. These will definitely go with your best sandals- I would stay away from flats with these. These are a great pair of shorts to wear to all of those summer BBQs coming up, or even to the ball park =)

Cost: $159.00

This dress has a great color combination that will help you transition from spring to summer! This dress is great for weddings, graduation celebrations, or even as a casual piece while walking the beaches! A sun hat would look adorable with this dress, and, of course, don't forget your sunglasses! 

Cost: $374.00

ya definitely! i made cut offs out of an old pair of American Eagle jeans! its really easy! Just put them on, mark a line where you'll cut them off (so you know how long/short to make it) and then cut away! If you want to add destressing, the best tool to use is a cheese grader. Also, you can add bleach marks with a toothblush, but I would practice on the scraps first =)
