In the past two years, I have become a bit of a blush lover. I have never been a fan of any color that is in the pink family, but for some reason (I guess I blame social media), I have developed a real love for the color blush. I even had my bridesmaids wear the color blush for my wedding, that is how much I am committed to the color. And what better color to pair blush with than my most favorite neutral: black!
Today I wanted to share with you all an easy, comfortable and casual style that is a go-to of mine. The outfit consists of a bodysuit, my favorite oversized cardigan, my favorite soft jeans, and a fun pair of sandals. This look is great for running errands, grabbing a quick bite to eat, heading out to the movies and simply hanging out with your friends!
I want to start this post off by saying that I love to shop and have new clothing, shoes, accessories, etc., just like most girls. And since I love to shop, I have come to love the finer things in life. But the finer things in life cost a lot of money, unfortunately. And I am definitely not able to go out and buy the newest and latest designer trends. I have to save up for them. Sometimes for years. Well that is what happened with these beautiful heels!
If you would have asked my 10 year old self if I would have ever worn so much pink, I would have laughed in your face. I used to make fun of my mom for loving it so much and for always wearing pink lipstick. I literally hated pink. Growing up, I loved the color purple. Not necessarily to wear, but just in general. Pink was definitely not a color I would even touch. Well that has definitely changed as of late!
In my defense, I really just love light pink and blush. I still cannot stand hot pink or magenta or any sort of dark pink shade. So that is how I rationalize my hate for pink growing up.
Lately, I have been trying to channel my inner Parisian woman. I just love how effortless and chic their style is and how confident they carry themselves. Parisian women definitely have that “Je ne se quoi” about them, and I absolutely love it! For this look, I was trying to hone in on my Parisian look with my loafers and draping my jacket over my shoulder. Do you all think I am Parisian yet?
My husband and I have been doing quite a bit of traveling in the past year, and that isn’t going to stop anytime soon. We are currently planning our honeymoon (which we are so excited for), so I wanted to share with you all a casual travel look and carry on bag that is perfect for a weekend trip, a quick getaway or a long extended vacation, like a honeymoon.
Sometimes going the classic route is the best option. Take this classic striped button down by Evy’s Tree. It is perfect with a pair of jeans, a pencil skirt, or even a pair of black shorts. The options are endless and this top can be dressed up or down. I decided to go with a more casual vibe and pair my button down with my favorite Levi’s black denim, my new Latigo black suede booties and topped it off by draping my denim jacket on top. I actually wore this look to my birthday dinner with my family. I loved that I could button the collar up all the way for a more sophisticated look.
Lately, I have been loving the cozy and comfy vibe for my clothing options. This gorgeous shell pink sweater by Evy’s Tree, is elegantly called the Katherine. This beautiful color is perfect for the upcoming love holiday that is right around the corner! I think this sweater would be a great option for staying in with your loved one, cozying up on the couch with some take out and a great movie! Well that is what I plan on doing anyways.
I want to introduce you all to the new lady in my life. Her name is Simone and she is my new Dagne Dover beauty that I can’t get enough of! Not only is she great for organizing my day to day life because of how much space she holds, but she is so pretty too! She can even hold a laptop or iPad, which not maybe handbags to do. Simone has a gorgeous silhouette and is perfect for ladies that are on the go like me!
With the year coming to an end, it is safe to say that this year was the year of the bomber jacket. I, myself, invested in about 4 different colored bombers so I have a variety to choose from. This black Express bomber jacket is definitely a favorite of mine because of its versatility and comfort.
