Today’s post is a quick one from last weekend in Paris when we spent the day touring the city, the catacombs, and the Luxembourg gardens! I wore this comfy dress from Miss Selfridges, my denim embroidered shirt from Anthropologie, and Nike flyknit lunars. I wanted to be comfy for a long day of touring so the sneaks were a must (my boyfriend cut them out of several of these photos because he didn’t think they looked good with this outfit). The denim embroidered shirt adds a little bling to an otherwise pretty plain outfit. 

I am attaching several similar options for the shirt because many of you have asked about it and I’m super sad that it is no longer available for you guys!

Today’s outfit is one of my favorites so far and features two beautiful pieces from Mango! Mango is by far one of my favorite places to shop, and the collection this season is too beautiful for words. I found this gorgeous jumpsuit and when I saw that it had a huge bow on the waist I couldn’t not buy it! I paired it with this adorable pink tweed blazer which will be so functional for work and play. And how cute is the fray?! The jacket also went perfect with my pink Chanel necklace which was a plus.

We went to the Louvre, Tuileries, L’Orangerie, and had the most amazing crepes. (Too many crepes and I definitely need to hit the gym after this weekend). The L’Orangerie is probably tied with the Muse√© de Orsay for my favorite museums. The Monet paintings in both museums are stunning, but I loved the Water Lilies at the L’Orangerie, and definitely recommend you visit! Tickets are only 9 Euros.

Overall, the trip was amazing. Having picnics with Victor by the Eiffel Tower and exploring the city together was an unforgettable experience.

Hello Lovelies and welcome back! Last weekend I went to Zurich, Switzerland with Victor and we had so much fun! This place has everything from incredible food, shopping, nightlife, and so much more! I am now addicted to Rosti, fondue, and raclette and probably gained 5 pounds during the trip but oh well! Victor loved looking at all the fast cars and lavish watches. Warning : this city will do damage to your wallet! Take advantage of the free water fountains if you don’t want to pay 3.50 swiss francs for tap water. I absolutely loved spending time on lake Zurich and recommend you do so during your stay. There are so many swans and birds that will come up to you and eat right out of your hand! It is truly incredible. Also enjoy a hike in the mountains and consider kayaking or sailing if you get the time!

I’m kicking off today’s post with a casual outfit, mostly from Subdued! I’ll link everything below. Eventhough my hair is naturally dark blonde, I have some serious blonde pride and this tank was too cute to pass up! I paired it with this sequin jacket, also from Subdued, which was on sale for only 20 euro! On the bottom I am wearing my guess two – tone panel straight jeans and my Superstar Adidas shoes. My hobo tote kept all my necessities such as my camera, phone, makeup, and my new gucci wallet (Thank you so much to the best boyfriend in the world)!

I hope you all have a great weekend! I will be leaving for Paris bright and early in the morning. I’ll keep you all posted!

Good morning fashionistas! 

Today’s collab with Tobi, one of my all time favorite online retailers is going to cover some new trendy pieces great for summer outings.

First up is the Keep Me Close Denim Harness Top . If you are familiar with the bra top trend then you have probably seen some of these worn over dresses, blouses, and simple tee shirts on some of your fav celebs and bloggers recently! I paired this casual top with a white blouse from IRO, my leather shorts from Zara, Bauble bar tassel earrings, D&G sunnies, and Steve Madden suede black mules. I love this piece because it is so easy to dress up or down. I wore this outfit for an afternoon out in Kansas City, but you could easily transition to a going out look by wearing it over a dress or even by itself with a pair of high waisted jeans or skirt for an edgier look. This top will definitely get lots of use this summer!

My second look features the Island Wrap Midi Dress which is so comfy and cute for summer! I paired it with my Steve Madden red tassel wedges and Cult Gaia bag to give it a truly summer-y feel! If you are going on a vacay or just want a comfy casual dress to wear out, I recommend this one. Sometimes I need to size up with Tobi, but the small gave  me plenty of room and was not too tight in any areas! If you are planning on wearing the dress all day, however, I would bring a safety pin just in case the tie comes loose in the front. This made it a lot easier for me when I was running around all day so I didn’t have to worry about having a wardrobe malfunction, because no one wants that!

For the last look I am wearing the Knot into You Plunging Jumpsuit and I cannot even put into words how much I love this one! I love a good jumpsuit, especially a plunging one! This jumpsuit is comfortable, easy to wear, and will turn heads for sure. I can’t wait to wear it out during my stay in Amsterdam for the summer!

Shop Tobi

I hope you are all having a happy Sunday, and I’ll see you next time!

Hello  Everyone and welcome back!

I know it has been so long since I have posted, and that is because I just finished my sophomore year of college! Some of you may know that I am also leaving for Amsterdam for two months for study abroad and an internship so I will be needing a stylish and durable tote to get me through work and my busy days in the Netherlands! 

Today’s post is in partnership with Hobo, a company that makes women’s handcrafted leather bags. These bags range from $100-$300 and come in an assortment of styles and colors! The bag I am reviewing is the Maryanna Work Tote in the color granite. I chose this bag because I will be on a busy schedule in the Netherlands and in need of a tote that will hold all my daily necessities for work and class. When I received this tote I was beyond pleased! 

 

“WE BELIEVE‚Ķ in finding the poetry in material things; In appreciating the beauty of natural wear and tear earned with time and experience; In the comfort that comes from the familiarity of the past and the lure of places unknown;” 

 

The quality of this bag is outstanding. I love the vintage hide leather, and the lining inside is floral and super cute! The bag is big enough to hold a laptop comfortably as well as plenty of other items like a planner, cell phone, makeup pouch, and plenty more! One of my favorite features is that there are outside pockets so you can keep your phone separated from the rest of the items inside the purse for quick access! (Because everyone hates having to fish through a purse for a ringing phone). This bag is so practical and will last you for life if taken care of properly and I highly recommend it for every #GirlBoss! Linked below is my bag and a link to the website so you can check out all the styles and colors! 

 I hope you all enjoyed this collaboration with Hobo and as always, all opinions are my own!

 

Have a lovely week!
