Top 6 Fall Pieces

Fall is right around the corner and these are just a few items that have caught my eye recently!

   Tribal print hi low dress. Perfect to pair with some plum    tights and black heel booties!                                                        Everyone needs a faux leather jacket                                                                                                             to fight off those chilly nights.
                    Charlotte Russe Dress                                                              Charlotte Russe Jacket

These boots are currently in my closet and they're the best boots I've ever owned!

Back to School

Good bye summer, hello school.
Unfortunately it's that time of year again, for some of you its your favorite time of year (if you've got some little munchkins)! I'm entering my sophomore year of community college and my goal is to show college girls that it IS possible to dress nice for class and not wear yoga pants every day! (Though its very tempting!)
 I've been dying to start transitioning into my fall wardrobe since fall is the BEST season after all! But sad to say the heat index today is over 100 degrees (so crazy!) so it doesn't look like that'll be happening anytime soon. I did get a little wear out of this sweater today during a little park visit.

Coral has to be one of my absolute favorite colors; I really bought into the coral and mint phases but I adore the colors separately as well. My boyfriend always makes fun of me when we shop because I always gravitate towards the coral items in stores. It's to the point that my boyfriend has nicknamed me Coral! How sad is that?! hahaha

Ohh Monday, we meet again.
A little nautical adventure to keep you thinking of the shore line and get you through this week :)
I apologize for those of you who have been waiting for this update after seeing my instagram, I ended up very sick in the middle of posting and couldn't finish. For those of you who didn't see the update on my instagram, start following me right here!

Unfortunately my shirt got bunched up in the process of pictures which I didn't realize until now! I found a cute little cutout navy blue blouse that has me thinking of a lovely day at the beach with a cool drink in my hand. 

My brown braided belt makes multiple appearances in my blog but it is my absolute favorite belt. It isn't a straight braid, big gaps and intricate twisting spices up the typical take on a belt.

These cotton pinstripe shorts are the most comfortable bottoms I've ever purchased. I almost passed them up on a trip to Old Navy and I'm relieved that I didn't since they've become my "go to" nautical shorts. Who doesn't love an outfit reminding you of the cool breeze blowing off the rolling water and warm sand massaging your bare feet? Ahh the beach is calling!
My go to sandal for this summer: these gold strappy sandals!

Greetings from Ireland

Happy Tuesday!
Sorry my update has taken so long, this vacation has been crazy so far!
I also apologize for the quality of these pictures, my "travel camera" isn't the best but I'm making due!
Experiencing terrain from the cobblestone streets of Temple Bar to the grassy hillsides of Doolin I have found these boots to be the best item I packed. I purposely went out shopping for some of these boots before my trip and definitely do not regret it. I found these beauties at Charlotte Russe, they convert from a basic brown combat boot to a chic boot simply by folding them over.

The chiller climate of Ireland has greatly influenced layering in my wardrobe. A light jean button down is perfect to throw over your top while out sightseeing in the brisk Ireland air but is easily removable to prevent over heating in all of the fabulous shopping centers around town. I paired it with my new light lime green oversized vneck sweater and my comfy black shorts. I recently discovered an amazing store in Ireland called Penney's (not jcp) and found this absolute steal- oversized tan tote for about $6, how can you beat that?!
