One Shoulder Chambray Dress Under $50!

one shoulder ruffle dress

Dress: Love, Fire | Heels: BP (Under $75!) | Sunnies: Karen Walker (would look great on anyone!) | Choker: Panacea | Earrings: BaubleBar | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Bag: Louis Vuitton; get the look for less here and here

I love this brand of dresses!  They make the cutest, most reasonably priced pieces that look and fit amazing!  PS–it does run small bc it’s a true junior cut, but works really well for us petite girls!  The fabric is not clingy, and the cut is just the right amount of boxy.  I think it would be perfect to wear to Taco Tuesday or casually during the day with sneakers.  I would definitely wear it that way also!  Pair with a white sneaker like this or this!  I loved wearing it with these block heels as a way to dress it up, but still be comfortable.  Seriously couldn’t be happier that block heels are in style!  At under $70, these are a steal for sure!

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Sunday babes! xoxo, Christian

Chic Black & White Look With a Pop of Color!

Top: Lovers + Friends | Denim: FRAME (best white rips ever!) | Earrings: Cara (only $22!) | Sunnies: Céline | Belt: Gucci | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Sandals: Valentino (get the look for less here!) | Bag: Céline Micro Luggage; get the look for less here and here

I fell in love with this top right when I saw it!  I decided to tuck it in, but you could also leave it out.  The hemline is asymmetrical and super flattering!  It is generous in size, so you could definitely size down in it.  I love having a pop of color with a black and white look, and wore this outfit out to BarTaco last week for dinner with some friends.  I love their cocktails, and the food is always delicious!  The portions are small and great for sharing, but I always seem to eat too much ha!

Anyway, I think this top would be super cute with shorts both dressy and casual.  Thank you so much for reading and Happy Thursday babes! xoxo, Christian

Top: Devlin | Shorts: Topshop | Belt: Raina; also love this one! | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Hat: Rag & Bone; get the look for less here only $39! | Bag: Chanel; get the look for less here and here | Sunnies: Prada | Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Petal’

Summer is here in Florida!  We’ve been sooo lucky this year that the humidity has held off pretty much until this week.  It’s been the best spring weather with warm days and cool nights, but now I’m officially in beach mode.  I can’t wait to start spending more time at the beach and even going out to watch the sunset.  It’s one of my favorite things to do and is so relaxing and calming.  With that being said, I’ve been loving all of the fun shorts that are coming out this season.  I pretty much live in cutoffs on my days off, but there have been so many fun ones that you could wear a little more dressed up.  I wanted to pair these back to this adorable ruffle one shoulder top by Devlin.  I found this brand last year and love so many of their tops and dresses! They’re stylish without breaking the bank, and this one would be adorable paired back to white, blue or black denim if you didn’t want to wear shorts.  I get that shorts aren’t for everyone!  You could tuck it in to high waisted denim (also love this trend!) or leave it out.

Polka Dot Off The Shoulder Dress

lace up heels sam edelman

Dress: Bardot | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Choker: Argento Vivo (only $48) | Lips: Smashbox Liquid Lipstick in color ‘Bang Bang’ | Bag: Chanel Timeless Classic ‘Jumbo’; get the look for less here and here | Sunnies: Céline; get the look for less here | Earrings: Nordstrom (only $29!)

We took these photos walking around exploring Vegas and fell in love with the Paris Hotel.  This outfit is very french inspired with the red, white and navy theme.  You could also wear it for a fun Memorial Day party or take it with you for a beach vacation!

I’m so happy that I bought these heels because they are so comfortable!  I already have a black romper that I’m planning on wearing them with on my next trip and can’t wait to show you.  I found the perfect red lip that matches the shoes and have been obsessed with the Smashbox liquid lips since last summer.  I think I bought at least 5 or 6 colors in them, and wearing this shade of coral-red is my favorite!

Fit Tips: The dress runs TTS, however if you’re in between sizes, I would recommend sizing up in it.  The shoes run TTS also and come in 2 other colors.  Both are super cute!  Thank you so much for reading and Happy Mother’s Day to all you mama’s out there!  I’ll be spending the day with my 4 legged babes 😉 xoxo, Christian

Printed Off The Shoulder Romper in Vegas

show me your mumu romper

Romper: Show Me Your Mumu | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Necklace: Kendra Scott, layered with this one | Earrings: Nordstrom (wear all the time! Under $30) | Bag: Chanel; get the look for less here 

This romper was so perfect in colorful Las Vegas!  I wore it after our delicious poolside breakfast at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and I was so stuffed.  There was everything from juice shots (to help anyone hungover from the night before lol) to a full omelet bar to homemade yogurt, a bagel bar, you name it.  There was literally no stone left unturned at this breakfast.  I’ll share some pics on my next post of this spread because it was to die for.  Nothing better than a ruffled romper to cover up the maj breakfast we just hate ha!

Embracing the Culotte Trend & Talking About Hair!

Jumpsuit: Adelyn Rae | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: Chanel; similar look for less here and here | Earrings: Dior; get the look for SO much less here 

Adelyn Rae’s new collection has really evolved this season, and I’m totally on board with the culotte trend!  Since it’s so hot in Florida, this trend feels so light and comfy in the heat of the spring and summer.  I have been loving so many of Adelyn Rae’s pieces because they have just the right amount of style and edge in one piece.  I love her dresses and jumpsuits.  I mean, who doesn’t love a one and done kind of outfit?!  I know I do!  It makes getting ready so easy and mindless.  With that being said, I always want to make sure my hair is on point!

Stepping Into Summer With Bright Colors!

Jumpsuit: Chelsea28 | Earrings: Cara (only $22!) | Sunglasses: Céline; similar options here (I wear these all the time!) and here (spring staple for sure!) | Cuff: Kendra Scott (new go to cuff) | Lips: Smashbox ‘Pink Drank’ | Blush: Smashbox ‘LA Lights Palette (I mix 2 shades together–the one on the left and the middle) | Bag: Céline; get the look for less here and here | Shoes: Joie last year; get a similar look for under $100 here!

celine mini luggage fringe earrings

This outfit makes me so happy bc it’s all 3 of my favorite colors in one outfit!  Yellow is one of my favorite colors to accessorize with in the spring and summer and I love my pops of turquoise!  These earrings are bold without weighing down your ears.  I think it’s so hard to find earrings that aren’t too heavy and that actually make a statement.  I love these and plan on wearing them with an all white look soon!  Check out my Instagram for other fun beaded earrings.

My romper is the perfect go to piece for summer!  Trade out your maxi dresses this summer and wear a jumpsuit to change it up.  They’re the perfect vacation outfit, date night look or you could glam it up and wear it to a cocktail party.  One of my friends is going to wear it to a rehearsal dinner.  So fun!!  It has just the right amount of support and control on top, but it does run a little small.  I would recommend sizing up if you’re in between sizes, or maybe it was all the delicious food I ate while on vacation haha!

Follow along on Snapchat or Instastories to see some of my other favorite jumpsuits and rompers!

Choker Top & Palazzo Pants

culottes, topshop, cropped top

Top: Topshop | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Sunglasses: Prada | Pants: Topshop | Bag: Chanel; get the look for less here and here | Lips: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ | Shoes: Steve Madden | Cuff: Kendra Scott (love this cuff!) | Earrings: Kendra Scott

Ok y’all, I’m SO on board with this trend!  I ordered these pants a few weeks ago for my trips, and they’ve been such a fun and comfy pant and a great alternative to jeans.  I love that these are high waisted, so you can wear them with a ton of different tops.  I think they would be super cute with a tee tied up in a knot for a more casual look.  I wore them to work with my Gucci loafers and a button down shirt tied up in a knot.  I seriously felt like I had on pajamas!  Just some different ideas if you wanted to wear them with a non-cropped top.  Another way to update your look this season is to switch over to more of a mauve lip.  I wear this one by Smashbox every day!

Floral Flutter Sleeve 2 Piece Set

Top: Leith (under $50!) | Shorts with overlay: Leith | Bag: Valentino; get the look for less here | Sunnies: Prada | Heels: Steve Madden (under $90!) | Choker (wear this all the time): Cristabelle | Cuff: Kendra Scott (obsessed!!) | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Lips: Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ (my go to right now!) & NARS ‘Chelsea Girls 

I’m not sure where and when these shorts with an overlay come from, but I am obsesseeeedd!  Living in Florida, you almost have to wear shorts pretty much year round, so I am loving this trend!  You get to stay cool by having shorts on, but also be dressed up with the look of a skirt.  Genius!  I took this outfit to Vegas and wore it out to dinner one night.  It’s such a fun and playful little number!  If you didn’t want to wear the shorts with it, you could pair the top back to high waisted flare denim or skinnies.  If you wanted a top with a little more length, you could always tuck in a fitted tank like this one and throw a leather jacket or denim jacket (I wear this one all the time!) over top of it.
