Honestly, I’ve never felt more like “me” than during this shoot. For so long, I put myself in a box of what I thought people wanted to see from me, but now I’m allowing myself to be creative & take risks & create content that I truly love. What can you expect to see from me moving forward…bold makeup, creative florals, fun accessories…& as always fearless, feminine fashion. I’m still going to be showcasing affordable fashion, just with a more creative flair. I hope you guys enjoy the new content as much as I do! <3

A great way to wear your spring & summer dresses while it’s still a bit chilly out is by layering fun, feminine blouses underneath. This maxi dress features the purple color I can’t get enough of this season. It’s everywhere & honestly all I want to wear ATM. I has so much fun putting this look together with the mixing prints, textures, & bright colors. Little details I love include the watercolor blush (inspired by this video), & my gold hoops.

Purple Carnations & Wide Leg Pants

I am so excited to be merging my love of fashion with my love for florals! A great way for me to get in some floral arranging practice as well as experiment with different color combos that compliment my outfits.

I took a poll on Instagram recently, & so many of you wanted to see me styling some wide leg pants. These pink-y, purple-y pants are such a fun addition to any wardrobe for spring. Pair them with either a tighter fitting top, or a flowy top with balloon sleeves fully tucked into the pants. The trick to wearing wide leg pants is really accentuating the waist line. So have fun, be bold, & add a pop of colorful 70’s style into your wardrobe this spring/summer.

Sunflowers At Burnside Farms

A couple years back, I visited Burnside Farms durning the spring for their annual tulip festival. It was gorgeous & I MUST go back again this next year. Ever since then, I’ve wanted to go during their sunflower season because all the pictures I have been seeing on their Instagram have been giving me major FOMO. Yesterday, Ben & I finally got to take a little road trip up to see the gorgeous sunflower fields. To say is was dreamy would be an understatement. Plus, we went on a Tuesday afternoon so there weren’t many people there. We had such a fun time & even got to cut & bring home a few sunflowers as well.

Our Happy Visit With The Happiest Flowers

On the drive home, we could not stop talking about how much fun we had in the sunflower fields. We loved walking through the classic sunflower fields & taking photos, but then we also saw some lovely white & burgundy sunflowers as well! Of course, we had to bring home a few of each color. They had chickens & turkeys on site as well which were thoroughly entertaining. I couldn’t help but think that one day when we have kids, we have to bring them back to see this. How much fun will that be?!

This was such a cute outfit to wear to the sunflower fields because the red & white really stand out against the flowers. Yesterday was my first chance to wear this dreamy long white skirt & I already can’t wait to wear it again. You may remember seeing it in a recent Sunday Try On where I mentioned that I had been looking for the perfect long white skirt for such a long time & this one is even better than I was expecting. It’s so light & flowy & is not see through either! An effortless white skirt like this is one is one I know I will wear for many years to come.

How To Look Cute On Hot Summer Days

hot, Hot, HOT!

Summer is in FULL swing, am I right?! It’s times like these when you want to just live in shorts & a tank top to at least be “comfortable”, right? I’m totally with you. So what happens when you want to look cute for a party, a lunch, a trip to the grocery store, or whatever the occasion may be? Let me share with you my tips on how to dress cute on hot summer days without compromising on the comfort level.

How To Look Cute On Hot Summer Days

The Sweet Details

Let’s go back to that original, hot day outfit of shorts & a tank top. Seriously the best & most comfortable thing to wear in the heat besides a bikini. To boost the cute factor but maintain the comfort, let’s re-imagine this look just a bit.

Shorts

Instead of a pair of athletic shorts or denim shorts, why not try a pair of high waisted, loose fitting shorts in another color or print. Adding some detail, or something out of the ordinary really elevates the entire look. These white shorts I’m wearing are a total Zimmermann dupe & are under $20! Not only are they cute & affordable, but the material is light & super breathable making them super comfortable to wear on even the hottest of days.

Tank Top

If you’re wearing a great high waisted pair of shorts, I recommend pairing it with a cropped tank top. Don’t shy away from cropped tops too quickly because just because they are cropped, doesn’t mean you have to show any skin. Cropped just means it’s shorter than the usual tops, but if you’re wearing high-waisted shorts, the cropped top can meet the shorts perfectly at the waist.

To take it up a notch on the cute scale, find a tank top with interesting design details. This gingham top (similar here) has a classic square neck with ruffled straps & a lovely tie in the back. Tie back tops are so cute & fun to wear this time of year. Whether you go with a tie back top or not, finding a top with details such as ruffles, buttons, bows, etc. will totally up your fashion game.

Don’t Forget The Accessories!

On hot summer days, the last thing I want to wear is a cross body bag. Maybe it’s just me, but I start to feel trapped under there, plus the added sweat. Pass. I tend to gravitate towards top handle or satchel bags for that very reason. This bamboo bag has gotten so much love over the past couple of years & I still just love the way it goes with outfits & is a great conversation piece. The structure & lines of this bag bring so much texture & depth to a look.

Earrings are a great & easy way to look cute on hot days. I’m totally obsessed with these strawberry earrings I found for under $10! I mean how perfect for summer are they?! If not these, then you know I love a good pair of floral earrings. Also, I’m loving this heart pair at the moment. (I can’t stop wearing them!)

Don’t be afraid to have a bit of fun with your sunglasses. Try a fun new color or shape & just rock them.

Lastly, wear a hat. Most likely, if it’s hot & you’re outside, that means the sun is out. Look cute & protect your face with a nice straw hat. If it’s too hot to wear your hair down, wear it in a low pony with the hat like I did here.

The Designer Dupe!

This pair of espadrilles look EXACTLY like the Castaner designer pair, but for less than half the price! When I first ordered them, I was a bit worried that the material would feel cheap or that since they were white, they would get dirty very quickly. I have worn them literally so many times & they look good as new! These gorgeous shoes are amazing, & you just can’t beat the price. In fact, I’ve just ordered another pair, the white lace version this time. I cannot wait for them to arrive! Be watching for them on my Instagram stories…
