Happy Saturday everyone!
I love jumpsuits! They are so comfortable, and you don’t have to worry too much about the length because they are shorts! I got this maroon jumpsuit at the beginning of Spring on sale at Forever21 for literally $14.99 but they must have ran out because I couldn’t find it online ūüė¶ So what I decided to do was to link a bunch of my favourite playsuits and that way you can check out some cute ones and see what’s out there : )
I am absolutely obsessedddd with these Steve Madden lace-ups. I originally wanted the nude colour but to be honest I was really disappointed with them in person. They look like a dirty sand colour and you can really see the stitching through them and I just thought they looked really cheap. But the black is amazing! It’s so dark and sheek and beautiful it’s hard to think they are the same shoe.
Also try not to be blinded in all these photos by how pasty mama is. I think you can actually see through my skin a little in the last one…. hahahahah
Anyway I hope you guys like this look, check out all these cute rhompers I linked down below!
P.S… Do you say jumpsuit, playsuit, or rhomper?

Happy Victoria Day!
I love love loveeee this dress! I am obsessed with white dresses right now and anything eyelet really. They are just so feminine and Summery! I originally tried on this dress at the Gap when it was full price and I loved it but I couldn’t bring myself to get it. $89.00 seemed a little steep.¬†But it’s on sale for half off and it’s amazing!!! It comes in two other colours and it is sooooo flattering. The perfect Summer event dress. You can throw on a jean jacket and sandals to keep things casual, or dress it up with heels and a cute clutch. The link for it is just¬†above!
I’m sorry none of my posts have had purses in them lately… I feel like they are always the same so I haven’t really bothered to add them. I am extremely picky sometimes… especially about purses. I like them to be practical and versatile. In that I like them to match just about everything I own to make things easy. Which also explains why pretty much all of my purses are black….. Anywho I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone a little and get a coloured satchel or a pretty nude¬†¬†or white bag so until then… Don’t mind my boring old black purses ūüėČ
The exact heels I am wearing are a little older but I linked almost the exact same ones. Because Nine West is a little on the pricier side I decided to link a few similar alternatuces that are a little more budget friendly : )
I hope you guys liked this, and I hope everyone has a relaxing holiday!

Happy Saturday lovelies!
I am loving this ruffle top from Aerie! The exact one I am wearing is on sale but they only have size XS left, (which happens to be what size I am wearing FYI) BUT they do have another that is very similar that has an embroidered front. I will link it down below just click on get the look : )
I just got these sunnies from Aldo and I am obsessed. They are unlike anything I have already and I feel like they look expensive and chic and they were only $16.00 !
Black and white looks like this are very typical for me, I like to keep things simple and monochromatic, gives a sort of¬†Chanel-esk vibe… no?¬†; )
I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Happy Monday beauties!
I am seeing pineapple things everywhere and ¬†I think they are adorable!¬†They are so cheerful and fun.¬†I feel like a little pop of pineapple in your day is a great way to add some colour, or just make you happy. How cute¬†would groceries look in this tote bag? And don’t even get me started on this Jan Sport backpack; From school books to a cute beach bag, so fun for Summer! And a change-purse to put your coins in?¬†Precious.
I linked everything above according to the numbers, just click on whatever number you’re interested in and it’ll link you straight to the page : )

A Gold Approach

Scouted out these gorgeous gold finds from H&M. This Tee in real life is stunning. The sequins are so shimmery and beautiful I was extremely close to purchasing it (I’m trying to work on self-control).
The pineapples on these shorts are little beads, they aren’t sparkly but super cute still; a white tank tucked in…Super cute.

So I hope you guys liked this, I figured it was a cheerful way to start a Monday : )
Talk to you guys soon!

White Denim

Blouse: Ardene | Jeans: American Eagle | Shoes: 424th&Fifth | Sunglasses: Ardene (also love these and these) | Leather Jacket: Guess (old but similar here and here)

 

Hello loves!
I am LOVING this blouse from Ardene! I love the lace-up detail at the front and the material is so silky! It comes in black as well and it is only $24.50! I got it in a medium because I wanted it to be extra baggy and long. It is perfect to throw on for a dinner date, or a night out! The jeans I am wearing are straight leg but I could only find the link for skinny. This outfit is perfect when you want to look good, but still be comfortable. Baggy cuffed jeans and a loose blouse is a total go-to for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

7 Things to turn any desk into a vanity

VANITY

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Happy Hump day lovelies!
What girl doesn’t want a¬†pretty place to sit and do makeup? It’s hard when you don’t have space, or an actual¬†specific¬†vanity to make this happen. So today I thought I’d share 7¬†Things to make any desk into a vanity. It’s so easy!¬†Just a little of this and that¬†and you’ll have a¬†vanity haven of your own!
^ #6 is an antique tray that I bought at a thrift shop and I am constantly seeing them at antique shops if you want one like it. I did link an H&M one that is similar above.

1. Jewelry Trays

Little display trays are pretty to look at, and are a cute way to display jewelry and makeup. By putting things on a tray it immediately makes everything look more organized. How fun are these 3 from Indigo? The middle one is on sale!*

1 | 2 | 3

 

2. Stool/Chair

Whether a stool or just your desk chair, a seat is a must! I really like the idea of a stool because it saves on space; when you aren’t using it just push it under the desk. This Ikea stool comes in black as well and it is super affordable. I also really like this Ghost Chair, throw a lambskin over it and you’re officially fabulous.

Stool | Chair

 

3. Mirror

A mirror on the wall, a tabletop mirror, or both! Mirrors can help make small spaces appear larger. It’s called¬†a vanity for a reason… two angles to look at yourself can’t hurt;) These three mirrors are all from Ikea. You could go with something really simple like these tabletop ones (I like that the 1st one has a tray underneath to¬†stash pretty¬†things).¬†The third says it is¬†new on their website and I think it’s so cool! It can mount to the wall or stand up on a table, and¬†behind the two side¬†mirrors are hooks so you can keep your jewelry organized! What more could a girl ask for ūüôā

1 | 2 | 3

 

4. Pictures

Pictures help personalize your space, and really make it your own. You could create a picture wall behind the table, or just a simple tabletop frame. Put things in them that inspire you or make you happy. Cut out magazine pictures, posters, or personal pictures.
When doing a picture wall I think it is best to stick to¬†one colour for your frames so that it can tie them all together. Ikea and Michaels have a lot of nice frames. Here’s a few tabletop ones I¬†love from Ikea.

1 | 2 | 3

5. Flowers

Flowers give a¬†feminine touch. They smell good, look pretty and are a great way to add some colour!¬†Fresh flowers in a decorative vase can¬†are always¬†pretty. Or try swapping the¬†fancy vase for something around the house; mason jar, mug…
Orchids are easy because they only need to be watered once a week, and they don’t need direct sunlight. Couldn’t be bothered? Get fake! There are some pretty fool proof ones that give the same effect as real flowers (minus the smell).

6. Tray

I know #1 was jewelry trays and they are similar, but I’m talking about large trays and display pedestals. A large tray can¬†really help make things look more tidy. Put all your foundations together, All your brush containers on it, apothecary containers with cotton pads and¬†Q-tips.¬†You could even use a dinner platter or a cake pedestal.¬†This adorable mint green one from Indigo is one sale and only $15.00. A cute way to display some pretty things, and add a pop of pastel.

7. Light

A tabletop lamp, sconces, a string of lights, or a candle to help set a relaxing ambiance.¬†This string of lights from Urban Outfitters is so pretty you¬†could drape it over a mirror¬†or just have it at the back of your table to add some twinkle. Home Depot also have mini string lights for very inexpensive. This¬†Kate Spade candle is super cute so I had to include it.¬†You could also reuse it once the candle is done for makeup brushes.¬†This lamp¬†is from Bed Bath and Beyond¬†and they¬†suggested to pair it with a¬†tweed shade but I like just plain white so I’ll link those below too!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

So I hope you guys liked this let me know if you did! I know I love reading about anything to do with home d√©cor ūüôā The nice thing about it is that you can really decorate however you like. You could find all of these things at second-hand stores. Find a funky stool and paint it whatever colour you want! The options are endless.
I’m thinking about doing a vanity reveal on an upcoming post, just sharing how I organize my makeup and things like that. Yay or nay?
Thanks for stopping by!
