Confetti Skirt

There’s nothing like a great sale, especially when everything hasn’t been picked over yet! When spring inventory hit the shelves at GAP, I scored three amazing pieces, including this adorable confetti skirt.

Since then, I’ve dressed it up and down for many occasions, making it one of the most versatile skirts in my closet. I’ll definitely be styling it more this spring/summer. What’s your favorite clothing steal? Share yours with me in the comments below!

Shades of Blue + Best Friend

Nothing is better than time spent at home, especially when the majority is spent alongside family and friends. Every time I’m back in Buffalo, I make it a point to spend quality time with my bestie, Lucy. We typically find a hip spot downtown or in Elmwood Village to eat, drink and catch up as girlfriends do. This time, we added one more activity to our ritual: blog pictures.

Yes, that’s right, my best friend is also a fabulous blogger! Lucy blogs at Write. Style. Travel. and has already been recognized as one of the top bloggers in Buffalo! So with my camera in tow, we headed to Canalside (after a delicious rooftop dinner at Tappo) and went on our blogging mission.

And don’t forget to check out Lucy’s “Style Spotlight” here!

Festival Fashion

With summer quickly approaching, music festival season is officially underway! Though I’m not attending any myself this year, I’m inspired by the eccentric yet fashionable looks that frequent them. For today’s post, I’m featuring one of my favorite American Eagle finds from last summer paired with a few festival essentials. This look is simple, cute and easy breezy — perfect for enjoying the sounds of summer.

LuLaRoe Amelia Dress

Lately, I’ve been invited to so many virtual shopping parties, I can’t even keep track of them. It seems like every day a new consultant-based retailer pops up, and many that I’d never even heard of before. Now, don’t take this as me complaining… I’m not, but my wallet is!

Because of my dwindling bank account, I’ve been very picky about purchasing from these online parties, but one that caught my eye was LuLaRoe. Known for their comfort and unique patterns, LuLaRoe specializes in women’s skirts, dresses and leggings. Naturally, I gravitated towards the dress collections (#DressObsessed) and spotted the Amelia. Let’s just say it was love at first sight.

Dress: LuLaRoe || Jacket: Express (old – similar) || Shoes: Nine West Outlet (N/A online – similar or similar) || Necklace: Francesca’s (old – similar or similar) || Lipstick: Urban Decay in “1993”

At first, I was a bit hesitant about the length of this dress with my petite 5’3″ figure, but decided to try it out anyways. And I’m so glad I did… it’s super comfortable, flattering and did I mention it has pockets? That’s what I call a win-win-win.

The fit-and-flare style along with LuLaRoe’s signature stretch fabric make the Amelia the perfect dress for any body type. At $65, it was a bit more than I typically spend on dresses, but I’ve already gotten tons of wear out of it. No buyer’s remorse here! So if you’re in the market for a fabulous dress that can be dressed up or down, I highly recommend checking out LuLaRoe.

White Jeans: B+W & Dressed Up

I’m still swooning over these white jeans and their versatility, so for today’s look, I’m dressing them up. I purchased this top a while back, and it was an amazing steal. Originally $118, after a birthday gift card, email promo code and spring sale, it came to less than $50! I’ll definitely be rocking this look all season long, either out on the town or for date night.

White Jeans: Feminine & Casual

In case you missed it, I scored the perfect pair of white jeans on a recent shopping trip to the Cincinnati Premium Outlets. Since then, I’ve been wearing them out whenever I can. They’re so easy to dress up or down, depending on the occasion. For today’s post, I’m showing you a dressed down way to rock the white denim trend. This is the perfect comfy, casual but still feminine look.
