The Essential Jacket

☆ Tweed Jacket - Zara ☆ Peplum Top - H&M ☆ Tank Top - Topshop ☆ Boyfriend Jeans - Zara ☆ Wedges - Kork-Ease 

The tweed jacket has always been and will always be a classic. Chanel inspired jackets have now been reproduced by hundreds of companies ranging from Forever 21 to Target. In my opinion, Zara makes the best replica of a Chanel jacket! When I purchased my Zara jacket, I went with a more daring color - a bright turquoise-ish color! I am so glad I did, because it looks great  with jeans, which are a staple of my wardrobe!  Personally, I think that wearing this style of jacket with a skirt is a little bit overdone for my age group, so I would pair it with tattered jeans, jean shorts, or even leggings. In this case, I wore a delicate peplum silk top and ripped jeans to balance out the look. xox

Yipes! Stripes!

 ☆ Striped Dress - Zara ☆ Cowboy Boots - Flea Market ☆ Turquoise Bracelet - Bloomingdale's ☆ Red Polish - Essie's Too Too Hot ☆

This casual striped dress is a versatile piece that can be worn many different ways depending upon the accessories chosen to go with it! Here I added a Western vibe with the cowboy boots and turquoise bracelet. The red nails are yet another pop to make the look a bit more playful and vibrant! If it was a bit colder out, I would match this cute striped dress with a basic black cardigan and maybe even wear the dress as a tunic over black leggings! xox

Vanilla Milkshake

☆ White Jeans - Pinc ☆ Green Vest - Zara ☆ T-Shirt - LA Made ☆ Scarf - Zara ☆ Shoes - Converse ☆ Laces - Nike ☆ Bracelet - Kitson 

Guess what?! Spring is officially here, which means that we can now dust off the white jeans, bright shorts, sun dresses, and cutoff tanks and sport them. A classic pair of white jeans is a must-have. You can wear these jeans with sneakers (as I did), sandals, or even heels. It's a look that can easily be changed to wear to the beach or a party, but here I just wore it as a casual outfit. The army green vest and printed scarf are items that are good to wear over basics because they create a more finished look!  xox
