The halter neck is a style that I have recently grown to love and find quite flattering. It is a very elegant cut that is known for accentuating the collar bone, neck, and shoulders while also adding a touch of femininity to any look. I have seen this detail on basically every garment imaginable and I am all for it! I have gathered a few pieces below that have caught my eye. Happy shopping!

I’m a huge fan of monochrome looks so when thinking of ensembles to style I kept that in mind. I also wanted to put together something chic and elegant while still being perfect for summer. In the end, I settled on this head to toe silvery-white look completed with iridescent heels and my chain link purse. I’ve had these trousers for almost two years now and still love them just as I did when I purchased them in London for my 22nd birthday. While I styled them with a black beaded top for my big day, I decided this time to pair them with a layered halter neck top. I’ve found that tops like these are quite flattering on my shape and this recent addition has quickly become a new favorite. This top was also perfect because it subtly brought out the metallic piping on the outer seams of the pants. Though this look is sophisticated, it can be worn to many different events; my favorite being brunch! So that about sums it up for this look, I hope you like it. Until next time!

The metallic trend has really taken off this year and become a staple with many differnt retailers. While it is most common for metallics to be used when referencing jewelry and other accessories, it is now becoming more common in the form of tops, dresses, outerwear, bottoms, and anything else you can imagine! I am personally a huge fan as it adds a bit of glam to even the most casual of looks. Below are some of the pieces that have really stuck out to me lately.

Metallics for summer have become increasingly popular this year. I love that they add a bit of glam to any look while still remaining neutral enough to go with almost anything. As a known lover of contrast, I knew right away that I would be styling this dainty midi dress with sneakers. I’ve found at times when styling looks in a cohesive direction, they can sometimes appear too formal or overdone. In my opinion, adding an element that goes against the grain of the ensemble always ends up creating a much more interesting and cool vibe. To add an extra layer of casual, I threw on one of my favorite jackets by Adidas. I showcased this piece on the blog for the first time last year and raved about it; to me, it’s no surprise that my feelings have not changed one bit! It still adds just the right amount of sporty edge and it’s a piece that I’m sure will remain a staple in my closet for many seasons to come. Because the dress was so “glitzy” I didn’t feel the need to accessorize much, but I added a simple gold choker just to tie everything together. I am a huge fan of looks that mesh together different styles like girly and sporty and this outfit did just that! So how do you like metallic trend? Are you a fan of the summer sun hitting these sparkly pieces, or do you prefer to save the glitz and glam for NYE? Either way, let me know in the comments below. Until next time!!

Hands down, this shoot has easily become my new favorite! I loved everything about it from the outfit itself, to the location, even the weather was perfect! As usual, I wanted to construct a look using simple pieces that contained eye-catching, stand out elements and I think I successfully achieved just that! In my opinion, this outfit pretty much consisted of what I would consider the basic “closet essentials.” Because the bag was the busiest piece with all of the patchwork details, I decided to pair it with a crisp white button up and a distressed denim pencil skirt. This shirt is probably one of the most interesting tops in my closet and it fully encompasses the true meaning of “business in the front, party in the back.” Over the last few spring and summer seasons, denim skirts have also made quite the comeback and this silhouette happens to be my personal fave. I kept the footwear pretty minimal as well with my single strap mules, another closet staple. When building up your wardrobe, it is important to at least begin with foundational pieces that can easily translate into different looks and can be worn across two or more seasons. Lately, I have also noticed quirkier pieces making their way into fashion, so when I saw this bag I knew it would be the perfect accessory to add a cool pop to any ensemble. I had a lot of fun with this shoot and I hope you guys enjoy this post. Until next time!

The off the shoulder trend has been popping up everywhere lately, and I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t slightly obsessed! This is a cut that in my opinion is flattering on any shape or size and adds an extra element of chic-ness to any look. Below are some of the pieces that have stood out to me lately, happy shopping! (Don’t forget to click the images to shop my picks!)
The woman’s neckline and collar bone is one of the only parts of the body, in my opinion, that is always flattering regardless of shape or size. Luckily for us girls, the off the shoulder or “cold shoulder” trend is extremely popular right now. This horizontal cut has been showing up in most retailers in the style of tops, dresses, jumpsuits, and much more. Naturally, I had to find a piece that worked for my wardrobe, and I did just that! Ironically enough, I actually told myself at the beginning of the summer that I was going to steer clear of rompers as they tend to make me look shorter and sometimes, childish; but I found one that I just couldn’t resist! I love the layered effect of this piece and how the cut gives it a much more elegant and chic look, compared to the basic casual play-suit. I also love how the wide vertical stripes make a bold statement, while still being simple enough to be paired with almost anything. Being that this piece was the focal point of the look, I kept the rest of the ensemble neutral with nude heels and dainty jewelry. Just like jumpsuits, rompers are another easy all-in-one look that will keep you looking put together with very minimal effort. So tell me what you think about this trend in the comments below; love it, hate it, just don’t get it?? Until next time!
