For the past two years Amazon has slowly emerged as one of my favorite places to buy swim suits. Not only are they affordable — which is great when you want trendier styles — but they deliver fast and have all been great quality. If you’re anything like me, you leave swim suit buying to the last minute. I have a beach trip coming up in July and only just bought swim suits in the past few weeks. No need to fret though because I’ve already found two new cute Amazon swim suits to add to my collection!

The swim suit I’m wearing above is probably one of my favorites to date. I’m all about trying trendy styles and it doesn’t get more trendy than a puff sleeve swim top! I think the color with the white polka dots is absolutely adorable and the top is so flattering. Warning: like a lot of Amazon swim suits, the bottoms are definitely on the cheekier side. My advice is to always read the reviews before buying. I don’t mind a cheekier cut, but you can easily accidentally buy a thong version.

Because the top is such a statement maker, I knew I had to get a coverup that didn’t take away from that. A skirt was the perfect option! I got this one for only $13! I will say it was pretty long on me, so my aunt hemmed it for me; I’m 5’0″ for reference.

If you’re looking for solid reviews on swim suits and cover ups, here are the ones I currently own and love! All four will be on rotation this summer!

30 Swimsuits and Coverups

In addition to the 8 swim suits and cover ups I already own, here is a complete list of all that have caught my eye. I’m thinking I should add one of the one pieces to my collection next!

Anyway, that’s all for today’s post! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Like the majority of the world now, I spend an unhealthy amount of time watching TikTok. From styling videos to recipes to dances to just straight up humor, it’s easy to get sucked in. While spending so much time on the app I can’t help but notice some trends that the TikTok-ers all seem to wear. And because I love nothing more than playing with fashion and trends, I had to try some out for myself! So today I’m sharing the top five TikTok fashion trends I’ve picked out—so you don’t have to!

Tennis Skirts

It’s no surprise I’m a fan of tennis skirts. I just blathered on about my love of the style in this blog post. But what you probably didn’t know was that TikTok actually convinced me to try this trend. 90s and early 2000s style is huge on the app, making tennis skirts seem like a no-brainer. From solid colors like I’m wearing above to school girl plaid there are so many ways to wear this skirt.

Polos

Looking for a top to wear with your tennis skirt? A polo is a popular choice with TikTok fashionistas. The classic top mixes two styles that seem to be taking off, both on TikTok and in the fashion world: preppy and dad-inspired.

Mini Bags

As mentioned, TikTok fashion swings more towards 90s and 2000s style. And what’s more 90s than a mini bag? If you need room for more than your credit cards and a lipstick you might want to sit this one out. The ideal TikTok bag is the baguette style that just barely sits on your shoulder. This is a definitely a case of fashion over function, but I’m also here for it.

Crew Socks

I really, really tried to incorporate this trend with my outfit in today’s post. I promise I did. But alas, my crew socks just aren’t cool enough. Obviously I need to invest in the Nike style that all the cool TikTok girls are wearing. Whether you wear these socks with sneakers or sandals — I’m looking at you, Birkenstocks — is your prerogative.

Scarf Tops

So this last trend might arguably be my favorite. There’s been a resurgence of grandma-inspired fashion, and not just on TikTok. One thing you’re sure to find in your grandmother’s closet? A silk scarf! Now the hardest part is figuring out which of the various ways to tie it you’re going to try out!

So that’s that with the top five TikTok fashion trends I’ve been seeing on the app. Clearly TikTok has been a major inspiration for me lately! Let me know, are you currently wearing any of these trends?

Parisian Style

By now I think you all know that I’m a self-proclaimed francophile. France, specifically Paris, is one of my favorite places on earth and I’m obsessed with all things French culture. However, one of my biggest obsessions, as I’m sure you’ve guessed, is Parisian style. No matter the time of year, Parisian women have impeccable style. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t quite reach their level of je ne sais quoi what it comes to fashion. That doesn’t mean I won’t die trying though!

With that in mind, I thought I would share some of the key elements I’ve identified as summer essentials for the Parisian woman. A summer capsule wardrobe if you will.

Printed Midi Dress

One element that I’m constantly seeing on French girls during the summer is a printed midi dress — especially floral! French fashion is a little more dressed up than American, so a pretty midi dress wouldn’t look out of place on a sunny afternoon.

A classic silhouette to choose is a wrap style. It’s flattering on literally everyone and never goes out of style. But, if you’re feeling more trendy, so many French it-girls are rocking the spaghetti strap milkmaid style!

Espadrilles

When it comes to summer shoes, it doesn’t get more classic than espadrilles. Whether you’re going for a wedge version like I’m wearing above or a flatter style, espadrilles are a must have.

I just bought my pair and already they’re a favorite in my closet! The tie strap details have me reminiscing of ballet en pointe. Who doesn’t like a subtle ballet influence? And they’re comfortable to boot! Highly recommend getting a pair for yourself.

Straw Bag

Go follow some French fashion girls on Instagram and you’ll see a sea of straw bags. During the summer a straw bag is a neutral piece that will go with anything! Here are some of my favorites:

Denim Shorts

While Parisian women are known for their love of a classic straight leg pair of jeans, when it starts to get hot they trade those in for high waisted denim shorts. Opt for a classic pair over distressed for a more pulled together look that the French embody so well.

Kitten Heels

Another shoe trend you’ll see on Parisian girls is a strappy kitten heel. I talked about them on my Parisian style post last summer and I’m still very much obsessed! You can wear them casually or dress them up. The best part is that the heel is so low they’re still comfortable to walk in.

If you want to really be on trend with the French, opt for a heeled flip flop. It’s trendy, yet elevated at the same time. Personally, I’m all about it!

White Blouses

A white blouse is always a go-to when it comes to Parisian style. From a classic white button down to the more trendy romantic blouses we’re seeing this summer, you really can’t go wrong. Mix and match with your denim shorts, kitten heels, and espadrilles for endless chic looks.

One trend that seems to be popular this summer is dramatic collars and other Victorian-esque detailing. These blouses take the romantic vibes to a new level!

So there you have my 6 piece Parisian summer capsule wardrobe! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Summer Dresses From Amazon

Summer Dresses From Amazon

Hello and happy Monday! It’s been a long time since I’ve shared an Amazon post, so I thought we should head into this week (and into the month of July) with a new one! Today I’m sharing 30 different summer dresses I found on Amazon! Almost all of the dresses are under $40 with only a few exceptions—had to throw in some splurge ones I was loving—and most are available on Prime. Also, I threw in a couple rompers!

I’m going to keep this post nice and short and let the dresses do the talking. Have fun shopping! I know I have my eye on a few of these pieces! I mean, how cute is this knit option?

So, did any of these summer dresses catch your eye? Let me know your faves in the comments below!

P.S. I haven’t personally bought these dresses. They just happened to catch my eye while browsing. When it comes to making purchases on Amazon, I recommend reading the size charts and reviews. Also, check out some of my past Amazon finds here!

Tennis Skirts: The Newest Take on the Athleisure Trend

TGIF am I right ladies?? So ready to be heading into the weekend and I saved this outfit post for today because can you think of a more weekend-ready look? If you’re a fan of the athleisure trend then this post is for you! Because, if you haven’t heard, tennis skirts are all the rage at the moment. And I, for one, am all about it.

As far as personal styles tend to go, sporty isn’t the first word I would pick to describe mine. I actually had a friend once describe it as “trendy, feminine, classic” and that’s by far my favorite description yet. So, as you can probably guess, athleisure hasn’t always been my go-to for outfit inspiration. Of course, as it’s gained popularity, I’ve been swayed. Who doesn’t love a comfy outfit? But, now that tennis skirts have made an appearance, I’m definitely on board!

I love this trend because it mixes a sporty flare with girly undertones. The juxtaposition between the two creates the ultimate cool girl vibe. If you’re looking to up your athleisure game, a tennis skirt is the way to go.

By the way, this whole outfit is super affordable! My tennis skirt was only $16 from Amazon (and comes in a million colors) and my tank was $14 from Nordstrom! Basically this outfit is a steal! And I love how the cropped tank in the black color makes the outfit so much more chic. Keeping with the athleisure vibe, I paired the outfit with my go-to sneakers—I wore these to Europe last summer and they’re truly the best—and black and gold accessories. When trying out a trendy piece, sticking with classics everyone else is a necessity.

So, what do you think of the tennis skirt trend? Have I convinced you to rock one this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

Midi Dresses: The Perfect Summer Piece

I must be feeling bold this summer because I’m really breaking out of my comfort zone in this dress! A bright color plus a midi length—who am I? But in all seriousness, one thing I’ve been lovely lately is midi dresses. They’re such an easy piece to throw on and look chic!

I wanted to keep this look on the more casual side, but sneakers just weren’t working out for me. Don’t get me wrong, I think midi dresses and sneakers are such a cool combination, but none of mine seemed to work for this dress. Instead, I threw on these sandals that have been all the rage this summer! They’re anything but boring, but they do help keep a casual cool vibe. I can easily see myself replicating this look at the beach. All I need now is a straw bag 🙂

But back to the dress. If you know me you know I generally stick to a muted palette. But, lately I’ve been branching out to brighter colors for the summer. And one color that’s always a winner in the summer is definitely orange! Once you get a nice tan on (real or fake lol) it really pops against your skin. Even if you’re not tan don’t be afraid to try it! Orange reminds me of sunsets and what better time to wear it?

Anyway, I’m keeping this post short and sweet today. I just wanted to share a fun summer look that I’ll definitely be repeating!
