Oxfords

I would have never thought of myself as a Oxford kind of a girl, but then I saw my fashion idol SomethingNavy rocking a pair by Miu Miu. I can say matter-of-fact that I can’t afford the particular pair that I fell in love with, but I found a close second!

These oxfords by Shelly’s London are so fun! They have a nice platform which is my favorite part. Being so short, I didn’t think that this platform being so level would compliment my body, but they were still flattering.

I am so happy I decided to get the black because I am such a neutral person, but the metallics are to die for.

I chose to pair this with an off the shoulder dress from Forever 21. I am not typically a fan of dresses that fit me too loosely, like this one. They can swallow me up and throw off my proportions, however, this one fit me pretty well.

I am obsessed with this look and cannot wait to pair these shoes with the perfect fall outfit!

Here is a little BTS!

The Purpose Tour

As hard as I tried, I could not resist buying last minute Justin Bieber tickets and I’m so happy I couldn’t! 


His concert was so great! The lighting, the sound, the songs….him dancing. I loved it all! 

Not to be selfish, but one of my favorite parts of the night was my outfit! The best part was that I found it all the second I walked into each store.

These ripped shorts were on the wall of Topshop in Nordstrom and they were what I have been looking for all summer. They are high waisted and looser around the thighs. Downstairs of Nordstrom, I found these beautiful lace up shoes, also Topshop. I decided to push my luck and run to Forever 21 for a top. I walked in and found this lace up top and decided to just get it and hope it didn’t clash with my shoes. As I was leaving I stopped back in Nordstrom to look at the Swell  bottles and instead found the cutest BaubleBar bracelets to complete my outfit! 

Thanks for a great note JBiebs!

A Few of My Favorite Things

This summer I’ve made a few purchases that I simply can’t get over! 

First, are these gorgeous Free People Dahlia tie-up sandals. Truth be told, they can get a little annoying when they untie and fall down, which happens often, but they are so worth the aggravation. I can match these beauties with almost any and everything. They make every outfit more eye catching.


My next obsession is this all white outfit I purchased for my graduation dinner. Not only was it light and summery, but also it was extremely flattering. This Free People Move Along white body suit was tight in all the right places, yet still comfortable. It was simple, sexy and a perfect to these gorgeous white Olivaceous Hi-Waist Wrap Pants.

Obviously everyone has been jumping on the SWELL water bottle craze, but I really just hate hot drinks on a hot summer day, so I figured “why not give it a try”. I finally caved and bought a SWELL bottle and oh my goodness – it was worth it! I forgot my ice water in the car yesterday and when I brought it in this morning, it was still icy!! I’m obsessed with the look of the bottles and even more thrilled that they actually work.


Lastly, I’m completely obsessed with face masques, specifically Kiehl’s Nature Powered Masque Collection. It is so easy on the skin, it clears the pores without drying out one’s skin. I apply one of the three face masques once a week for ten minutes and it makes my face look so clear and clean! My personal favorite is the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque, but they’re honestly all so good! 


These are just a few of my favorite purchases this summer! I’ll be sharing more later on in the week. Make sure to check back for more must-haves!

ElleroseUS

Once I find something I LOVE, I can’t keep it to myself. I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect keychain, something that makes my keys stand out. I like when one product can look classy, yet fashion-forward at the same time! 

I found ElleroseUS through Snapchat. One of the most creative people I ever met created these gorgeous key chains out of no where. 

The second I saw these, I called her and placed an order for mine! 

Each key chain is made from genuine Louis Vuitton leather and they are all hand-made, hand-designed and hand-painted!


I highly recommend these key chains, they complement every key, outfit and look!

Imperishable Clothing Co.

I have been obsessed with this “Jesus Saves, Bro” shirt since I saw in on Candace Cameron Bure’s Instagram as shown below. 


I was a little caught up at school, but as soon as I got home, I placed my order for a Jesus Saves, Bro tank. 

I have to say, I am so impressed with my package (granted I had to pay for shipping, which I hate!). However, the packaging was beautiful so in the long wrong it was worth the few extra dollars. 

How cute!!


I have been so excited to wear my shirt, but wanted to save it for a good day. I chose to wear this shirt today, Harry Potter’s birthday and the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II, well because for me that is a great day! 


I found the tank to be cute and comfortable. Since it was raining today, I chose pair the shirt with ripped jeans and sneaker/booties.

KIINI 

Bathing suit shopping is always hit or miss for me, but mostly miss. Unless they tie on the sides, chances are it isn’t going to fit!

However, Kiini bathing suits fit me perfectly! The sides are slightly stretchy, so it hugs your body perfectly. The straps on the top are a little big for my small frame, but I’m actually a fan of how it falls because it’s a little looser.

The colors are so complementary, I am obsessed with them all. I can almost guarantee I will be getting the white one before the end of the summer. They are definitely expensive, but worth the money in my opinion!

Getaway

As if I haven’t mentioned it before, one of my favorite parts of life is the privilege of traveling! It doesn’t have to be anywhere far or expensive, but a nice getaway means everything to me. As graduation was approaching, I began freaking out that I was going to be unemployed… So as every unemployed person does, I decided to spend some money I didn’t have and wouldn’t get from a pay check and book a flight to Highland Beach, FL. Okay, soooo maybe this wasn’t so normal! However, I couldn’t resist a couple of days in the sun!


My airport style is pretty casual, I normally wear loose shorts or pants with a nicer shirt. I tend not to wear jewelry, since majority of the time I have to take it off for security. This trip, I stuck with workout clothes. Since it was a short trip, I only brought a carry-on so I tried to save as much room as possible by wearing my gym clothes, rather than packing them!

Every morning we would enjoy the beautiful weather and enjoy acai bowls. We were alternating between the beach and the pool but my book came with me wherever we went. My book of choice was Miracles from Heaven.



Beauty Tip: always use sunscreen, even if it is 5SPF, or else you’ll wind up with 2nd degree burns and sun spots like I did. Whoops!

While we were away, we pretty much relaxed by the pool or beach, but at night we took sometime to explore!


I fell in love with this skirt the second I saw it. I had thought a lot about where to wear it while packing for our trip and then it hit me- I totally felt that this skirt was fitting for a Mexican themed night. So I am a total guac girl! I love anything that has avocado! When I saw that Rocco’s Tacos makes table side guac, I knew where we were going to dinner and exactly what I would wear. The Tuesday Taco specials were as delicious as the margaritas were strong! I highly recommend a visit to Rocco’s Tacos, if you ever find yourself near one.


While away, we took advantage of one of the best movie theatres I have ever been to, iPic Theaters! This theater is the totally package, you can either eat in their restaurant or sit at the bar prior to your movie or eat dinner while you watch the movie! If you choose to purchase a Premium Plus ticket, the theatre provides you with a personal waiter/waitress, who quietly serves you as you enjoy your movie! I am ecstatic to announce they are opening 2 more of these amazing theatres within 30 minutes from my house; you no longer have to go to Florida to experience all that iPic has to offer!


This iPic was located in Mizner Park which is filled with quality restaurants and shops! My personal favorite being the macaroon and chocolate shop!


Lastly, we visited an amazing seafood restaurant on the water. The Rustic Inn is such an authentic, fun place to eat. Everyone is cracking their shells on the table while watching the boats drive by, it was an extremely exciting dinner.

There were so many places we wanted to go but we definitely did not have enough time, which means I will just have to take another trip soon!

Graduation


As much as I dreaded wearing this cap and gown because it made graduation real, I was ecstatic to wear my dress underneath! The moment I saw it, I fell in love.

Like I mention in my FORMAL post, I need to be very careful with long dresses because I am so short.


This dress was comfortable and flattering, but of course I needed to get it altered ahead of time.


And it’s official! I’m officially finished with college!

Thank you lex for grabbing a picture of me on stage. Thank you to my family for always supporting me and the biggest thank you in the world to my grandparents for supporting me and sending me to an amazing college, Monmouth University.

Senior Week

Senior week, while depressing, is an excuse to buy all new outfits to look my absolute best. Fun Fact: I LOVE LOVE LOVE buying new clothes rather than matching old and new pieces together. (This isn’t a good thing for my bank account).


To go to a local bar, I bought a bodysuit to wear with jeans for one of the more casual nights.

Body Suit and Ripped Jeans: Molly and Zoey. Booties: Forever21. Bag: Authentic Italian Lether from my time Abroad: CIAO ITALIA.

Being so close to Atlantic City, a senior trip to the Trump Taj Mahal was a no brainer.

Romper: Misguided at Nordstrom. Suede boots: Steve Madden.

To finish off senior week, we attended a catered dinner at the President’s House, a.k.a my favorite house in the world.
