Perfect White Distressed Jeans

Jacket // Distressed Denim // Red Heels (similar here & in a cute wedge version here for everyday) // Purse (similar) // Sunglasses // Lipstick: Russian Red //

I have been searching for the perfect pair of white denim for months. I am a HUGE online shopper and I am not kidding when I say I have probably returned 10 different pairs of distressed white denim. I tried jeans in every price range from $50-$150 and nothing has come close to this pair....which were the cheapest of them all. THAT NEVER HAPPENS! I love the big rips in the knees and how i don't have to worry about ripping any threads. I also love how incredibly soft they are. I will be waring these on repeat for the rest of spring/summer!! The only downfall is that they are a teeney bit see-through if you have bright pink undies stick to a nude pair when you wear these and you will be okay! :) haha! Tonight I am headed to see Dave and hopefully steal him from studying for a dinner date with me! He has finals starting in one week so he is in full stress mode. I can't wait for him to have a little break this summer....I also can't wait to have weekends with him with NO studying. That will be such a change in our life, I don't even know what to expect.

Boat Hat

Dress: Tildon // Wedges: Lucky (on sale) // Purse: Mainsteam Boutique // Lipstick: Impassioned // Necklace: Forever 21 // Bracelet: Forever 21 // Hat: Forever 21 // Bracelet: Forever 21 //  Earrings: Gorjana (from my Rocksbox) // Rings: Forever 21 // Sunglasses: Forever 21

So maybe this dress looks familiar...that's because I also own it in gray. AH I'm so crazy I know but I loved it so much in gray and I just decided that it would be the perfect little black dress for summer. 

It can be dressed up or down so easily. I made it more casual here with chunky wedges, and this boat hat that i'm OBSESSED with! These wedges are also still on sale with code FRIENDS! 
These earrings came in my Rocksbox this month and I fell in love with them immediately, they are so fun. You can still get a month for free with code 'loveyourfatexoxo' but only for a couple more days so if you still want to, do it soon!

Army Green & Neon

Pants: H&M old (love these SO much) // Sweater // Tassel necklace: Mainstream Boutique (similar) // Lipstick: Impassioned // Gold Ring: Forever21 // Sunglasses // Bucket Bag // Wedges

I've seen this color combo everywhere lately and I think it has risen to the top of my favorite combo list. I love how the neon yellow takes my army green pants (that I usually reserve for fall) and freshens them up and makes them perfect for spring!  I added tons of gold jewelry (as per usual) to this oufit to complete the look and added my favorite bright neon lipstick! I wear this lipstick with everything, I know I have told you guys about it before but I really am surprised how versatile it is for such a bright color. My wedges are currently on sale right now use code FRIEND.
I am in the process of finding a new apartment, so home decor is constantly on my mind. I love neutrals with gold accents which luckily for me is EVERYWHERE right now. Look at this cute ring holder I found yesterday!!

Pastel Pink Pants

I love light pink and gold together and the chambray top is a great neutral to add to the mix. I kept this oufit simple because I am wearing pink pants after all! I haven't been able to stop wearing these Jack Roger Jelly sandals since I got them, they come in so many other colors as well.

Happy Monday!

I am always tearing my closet apart for white tanks in the summer. They are one of my favorite things to wear with just about everything from distressed jeans, to my darkest denim to fun color shorts for summer. I love the scallop trim on this one!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I have lots of new things to tell you about today! Some I have used for a while and some things are brand new! 
I just decided to try BareMinerals Complexion Rescue, as it gets warmer I tend to wear less and less makeup on my face. I really like how this product is hydrating and light. It makes it perfect for the days where you want a lighter makeup feel. I have just been wearing it with a swipe of bronzer and my new Roller Lash Mascara. I try new mascaras all the time and I hate more than I love to tell you the truth. I love this Roller Lash mascara but was skeptical to try it because the last mascara I tried from Benefit (They're real) I really really hated. Another good product for this warmer weather is this YSL lipstick, It feels like a balm but has great color and SMELLS so crazy good!!
I put this Redken Shampoo & Conditioner on this list because I actually just had to replace my HUGE bottles that I bought a year ago. I honestly cannot believe that these bottles have lasted me a year, granted I wash my hair MAYBE four times a week....but still thats amazing. I seriously notice a difference anytime I use any other Shampoo now, I'm totally obsessed, in love, OVER THE MOON about this product. 
I've always known that I need to drink more water....I really really do not drink enough! I just got one of these fruit infused water and it's making all the difference in the world. I have used lemon, lime, cucumbers and strawberries in my bottle so far and it is just so fun! Benefits of water include clearer skin, potential weight loss, and a fatigue fighter just to name a few! Drink up!

Bright Florals


Floral Top // Denim (favorite) // Heels // Crossbody Bag // Bracelet // Sunglasses // Rings // Lipcolor: Rose Intime

I picked up this shirt at Forever 21 and walked around with it in my arms for the rest of my shopping trip, during that time...get this...THREE people (including the check out lady) asked where I found the shirt. I guess everyone loved it as much as I do! The floral is such a pretty contrast against the black. This lipstick is also my one of my favorites because it smells so AMAZING. For all of you who are not the biggest fan of lipstick or are just searching for a good summer color/gloss/stick this is definitely one you should try! It is really light and feels amazing on your lips, not as heavy as some normal lipsticks!

April Showers bring Kimono Flowers

Floral Kimono: Mainstream Boutique (also here) // Pink Tank old (similar here & here) // Distressed Black Denim sold out (similar and for under $60 here) // Bucket Bag // Sunglasses // Heels // Bracelet // Lipstick: Candy Yum Yum // Necklace: H&M // Earrings old (similar) // ring old (Absolutely obsessed with this one) // Pearl Ring // Spike Bracelet

I wore this out to dinner and then out with friends on Friday night. It was SO warm in Chicago on Friday!! I loved being able to be able to walk to dinner and then sit on the rooftop after! This was the perfect outfit for the night. I love kimonos or really any boho look because it allows me to just pile on the jewelry. I got this new bracelet from Forever 21 and I think I wore it with everything this weekend! These sunnies are also new and are under $6!!!

I got to see my friend from Nashville on Friday night also and it just seems like we never have enough time to catch up. I could talk to that girl for 10 days straight and we would still have things to talk about!! 
ohhhh also...Dave and I tried Jelly Fish for sushi and it was SO crazy good!! I actually hadn't seen Dave since I got the news about my new job so of course we had to celebrate with Sushi. my fave!!!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Red Lip Classic

Jacket // Tee: Gap, not online (similar) // Pants // Heels: Lulu's sold out (similar & here too) // Bucket Bag (OBSESSED) // Lipstick: Ruby Woo & Gloss // Bracelet:Kate Spade Idiom // Earrings // Ear Cuff // Sunglasses

Happy Friday Everyone! I am so excited for the weekend! Dave and I are going out to a new sushi place and one of my college besties will be in town from Nashville! Yayayay!
There are so many aspects of this outfit that I love...first of all these +H&M pants have been a staple of mine all through college and I continue to love them even now. They are under $20 and I love them because they never stretch out and they are super slimming. I get a new pair whenever they start to fade because at $20 I can afford to do that! :) This jacket is the perfect weight for spring, especially the nights that are still a little chilly. It came in a few other colors as well but I went for the classic black. My bucket bag from +Nordstrom  is brand new as well, I have been searching for one for a while but wanted to find one that I liked for a reasonable price. This one is under $100 and I can't stop touching it. Its faux leather but it is the softest thing ever!

Lace Kimono

Tank: Forever 21 // Lace Kimono // High Waisted Denim // Wedges // Handbag (similar) // Sunglasses (similar) // Necklace (can't stop wearing) 

Layers are a springtime essential with the varying temperatures. Kimonos are a favorite piece of mine to layer with because they are flowy, so comfortable and can be paired with so much! I love this +Forever 21 lace one because you can put it over anything, which is great for all my printed tanks! I don't know why I am having such a hard time linking it up for you but if you are looking for it it is the 'floral lace dolman cardigan'.

I'm so excited for the weekend, Happy Thursday!
