My Latest DSW Finds

My Latest DSW Finds

IMG_3193

Happy Wednesday! Although, with Memorial Day, today feels more like a Tuesday. But at least Friday comes that much quicker! Anyway, I did a little shopping recently, so I thought I’d share some of my latest DSW shoe finds. I’m going to Europe in two weeks so I’ve been on the hunt for cute and comfortable shoes I can take with me.

First up are these snakeskin slides I’m wearing above. My mom actually got these for me while I was still at school and I didn’t realize exactly how freaking comfortable they are. They’re such an easy shoe to slip on and go—they go perfectly with so many different outfits. I’ve been loving them with a simple white tee and denim short combo to give the outfit a little extra oomph.

Next are a trend I’ve been dying to jump on board: dad shoes. I get that they aren’t for everyone, but I think they look so chic with a sundress or flowy skirt. I wore them yesterday (check my Insta!) with a leopard tank and black shorts and absolutely loved the look. The best part is I’m pretty sure these shoes were $100 at Urban Outfitters, but I got them for just $65!

Finally, I also bought the comfiest sneaker I’ve ever worn. So many people have raved about the Adidas cloud foam shoes, so my mom and I had to check them out. After trying them on it was a no-brainer for the both of us. We need something comfy for those long days of walking around and I like that the subtle color makes them a bit more chic to wear with cute outfits. I know my feet will thank me!

Anyway, that’s my roundup of my recent DSW purchases. They really are a go-to store for trendy shoes for a little bit less than department store prices. What shoes are you grabbing for the summer?

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday loves! I am SO ready for the weekend. This week has been sort of weird for me, so today I’m sharing a very short (and very late) blog post featuring some things that I’m loving right now.

  1. Babydoll rompers and dresses. So this style/silhouette/whatever you want to call it definitely isn’t for everyone. Personally, I am obsessed. I think this pink babydoll romper is absolutely adorable, and Urban Outfitters has a ton of over cute babydoll dresses and rompers right now. I seriously want to buy them all.
  2. I just saw these sandals in another blogger’s Instagram stories the other day and had to have them! They’re so perfect—from the leopard print to the beaded detail, I haven’t wanted a pair of sandals so badly in the longest time.
  3. The Z Supply short overalls have been popping up all over my feed the past few months in the camo print (which I think are adorable), but I just recently saw the same pair in a leopard print. All I can say is: sold! Sadly, they’re sold out in all sizes but large, but I’m going to keep my eye out for more!
  4. How cute is this little striped dress? I think it would be so cute for any upcoming parties (grad parties anyone?) or a summer vacation! It comes in a few different prints too, but I’m also really liking the dalmatian print which is on sale.
  5. Unpopular opinion, but I find jean shorts so uncomfortable. I’ve been on the hunt for a comfy pair of denim shorts and I think paper bag waist shorts are the way to go. I have that style in a pair of striped shorts that I love, so I’ve been searching for a traditional blue denim pair. I recently bought some that I’m now returning, but just saw these and think I might get them. I saw them on someone else and they looked amazing, so I have high hopes!

 

Anyway, these are just some things I’m loving right now/have on my wishlist! Happy Friday!

Under $25 Romper Perfect for Memorial Day Weekend

Is there anything better than hearing it’s under $25?! I don’t think so! Lately, I’ve been jumping on the Amazon fashion trend and I’ll admit, I’ve bought quite a few duds. As someone who is 5’0 it’s hard for me to find clothes, especially dresses, that fit right. Once I figured out how to shop for my size on Amazon, I feel like things have gotten a lot better!

But anyway, I picked up this navy blue romper (it’s darker in person) for only $22.99 and on prime! It was the perfect piece last weekend to wear out to dinner with friends. I dressed it up a bit with one of my all-time favorite pair of wedges and a pair of light pink earrings! I definitely think you can add a pop of color to this romper to make it stand out.

This romper was so easy to pop on for a night out and I think would be so cute for Memorial Day weekend! The fabric is really lightweight and I love that the tie-front is adjustable. It also comes in a few other colors if navy blue isn’t your thing.

So that’s it for this week—short and sweet. Hope everyone is having a great week and happy Friday eve!

The Ultimate Guide to Spring Accessories

The Ultimate Guide to Spring Accessories

I don’t know about you, but I am LOVING all of the fun accessory trends this spring. From bags, to jewelry, to hair accessories, there is so much going on and I am living for it! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Because today I’m sharing four of the top trends that I can’t scroll through my Instagram feed without seeing.

PVC (Clear) Bags

I don’t know why this became a trend—I mean, showing people what’s inside your bag??—yet I still think it’s so chic. Also, now you have a good reason to clean all of the extra junk out of your bag. I love that there are so many different styles of bags that are still incorporating this trend. So if you’re a small, crossbody bag lover like myself, or a large tote lover (like my mom!), there is a PVC bag for you!

 

Pearl Clips

I haven’t actually jumped on board this trend yet, but you can bet your booty I am ordering some soon. Who doesn’t love a trend you can incorporate with $8 and an Amazon Prime account? I can’t wait to start rocking pearl clips into the summer. I’m only sharing a few options (they all start to look the same after awhile), but you can definitely price shop on Amazon and Etsy for the best deals!

 

Woven/Basket Bags

I know, I know, this isn’t a new trend. But I am happy to say that it is back again this season. I could not get enough of my basket bag last summer (I actually used mine so much it broke and had to buy a new one), so here’s to bringing the trend back this spring. I love that like the PVC bag trend there are so many different styles to choose from.

 

Puka Shell Jewelry

Confession time: I absolutely hated this trend when I first started seeing it. All I could think about was the tacky jewelry I used to buy at the beach in middle school. But, my opinion changed when I got the cutest little gold puka shell bracelet. Since then, I have been so on board. This trend really comes down to the pieces you choose; stay away from anything that looks like you could have bought it at a random tourist trap 10 years ago, and opt for dainty, gold (or silver) pieces.

 

Which trends will you be rocking this spring? Are there any you love that I left out? Let me know in the comments below!

The Cutest Graduation Gift Idea

The Cutest Graduation Gift Idea

cutest graduation gift ideas 2cutest graduation gift ideas 5cutest graduation gift ideas 9cutest graduation gift ideas 7cutest graduation gift ideas 3cutest graduation gift ideas 6Obviously graduation is on my mind since that seems to be the theme this week! Whether you or someone who know is graduation (college or high school) or you have another reason to buy a personalized gift, I found the perfect item.

When it comes to jewelry, by now you all probably know that I like pieces that are delicate and dainty, and if they’re gold? Even better. I recently found this online jewelry company, Sincerely Silver, that is the ultimate destination for personalized pieces! I can’t think of anything better than jewelry that is personalized. From name and initial necklaces to handwriting bracelets, there are so many options.

As a little graduation gift to myself, I picked out a GPS coordinates bracelet. In a sentimental mood, I added the GPS coordinates for Elon University. Obviously, I went with gold, but I like that the company offers silver and rose gold options as well—everyone has a metal preference! And the best part is that you can choose your size. I hardly ever wear bracelets because my wrists are so small and they just fall off. But I went with the smallest size and could I adjust it to fit my wrist (I probably could have even gone with the next size up). In my opinion, there is nothing more perfect than personalized jewelry.

Of course, before I go, I have to get into my outfit details as well. I bought this Storets skirt in the summer and it’s still one of my favorites. This exact skirt is gone now, but there is an almost identical version online. I wanted this look to be feminine and flirty to highlight the delicate bracelet, so I added a puff sleeve top and my favorite wedges.

That’s all for today, I hope you liked it! And who else understands my obsession with personalized jewelry? I have so many initial necklaces it’s ridiculous! P.S. You can get 15% off your purchase from Sincerely Silver with code SINCERELY15.
