This jacket is a must have for everyone!  It comes in 4 colors, just in case pink isn’t your thing, but I highly recommend it and would love it in all the colors!  I wore it last week to work and swapped out the shorts for a pair of lighter wash ripped denim and paired it back to my metallic rose gold loafers.  It was adorable, and people stopped me all day asking about my jacket.  You could also pair it back to black pants or a black pencil skirt for work.  It looks so designer for such an affordable price!  The jacket runs TTS, and I know most Topshop pieces run small, but this one is more true to size for sure.  My Gucci belt is a total new obsession–I’ve seriously wanted to wear it every day since I got it.  Ha!  The sizing is a little tricky on them, but just for reference I got a size 75 and wear a 24 in jeans.  I hope that’s helpful.

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

My Top 5 Summer Staples: Embroidery, High Waisted Denim & Loafers to name a few!

embroidery topshop jamie metallic loafers

Top: Rails | Denim: Topshop | Earrings: Lana | Bag: Valentino; similar here (die for this one!); look for less here for under $100  | Loafers: Louise Et Cie; sold out but dying for these!; similar here (love!) | Necklace: Dana Rebecca (staple and great for layering!)  | Lips: Smashbox ‘Pink Drank’

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2696511″]

  1. Embroidery!  Can I please tell you how obsessed I am with this top?!  If you live in a warmer climate like me, this top is SO perfect for summer time!  The humidity and heat have definitely set in down here and it’s warming up by the minute.  I walked around Tampa in this top last week during the day, and honestly felt like I had nothing on ha!  It’s loose enough, cool and comfortable, and would also be super cute with high waisted cut offs.  It’s definitely short though, so high waisted bottoms are a must!  If you want a more classic spin on the embroidery trend, this one is fabulous!  I just ordered it and can’t wait to wear it with white or blush denim.  The loafers I linked would also be perfect with it!  This top runs TTS.
  2. My denim are also a new fav.  I love the wash and the rips are in just the right spots.  Also, perfect for the summer!  The new high waisted denim is super flattering and really holds you in nicely!  I love the stretch and control in these, and the best part is that they come in 2 lengths.  I always order the 30 length bc I’m 5’2″ and also bc I like them on the shorter side.  These jeans run small (I size up 2 sizes in them)
  3. If you don’t have a pair of loafers, you must get a pair this season!  I linked a few of my favorites for you.  I own the Gucci’s I linked in black and wear them all.the.time!  I seriously want them in every color.  This blush pair are adorable!!  If you want the look for less, these Sam Edelman’s are too cute, and I love the tassel detail!  They’re a great price and super comfy.
  4. My little star necklace is just enough worn on its own, but I love to layer it.  Since it’s rose gold and has little diamonds, it has a 2 tone look and looks great layered with any metals.  I wear it with rose, silver and gold, and honestly never take it off!
  5. Studs & spikes are my last go to items for the summer.  Whether it’s in a bag, bracelet, earring, belt, or buttons or on shoes, definitely incorporate some of this into your look this season.  You can’t go wrong and layering is key!

One Shoulder Faux Wrap Dress: Flattering on Any Body Type!

day dress one shoulder leopard clutch

Dress: Trouvé (under $90!) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Clutch: Clare V; get the look for less here for under $50 | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Necklace: Dana Rebecca (wear this all the time) | Lipstick: Tom Ford ‘So Vain’ (new fav!)

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2693646″]

Right when I saw this dress, I knew it would be soooo flattering!  Wrap dresses don’t ever work that well on me and usually end up gaping open in the boobs, but I love the idea of them because they’re a flattering style.  This one has the perfect amount of ruching and the tie helps carve out a waist even if that’s not your best area.  I saw it on 3 different people last week, and it looked so amazing on everyone!  The fabric is super comfy and not too clingy for these upcoming hot summer months.  It fits very true to size.  The reviews online said that it was tight and short, but I didn’t think so.  The XS would fit a 0-2, small 4-6, medium 8-10, large 12.

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

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  What are your plans today?  I’m going to run some errands this morning and head out to shoot pics for this blog this week later on this afternoon.  One of my favorite things to do on a Monday is to have a really delish and slightly unhealthy (let’s be real..really unhealthy!!) dinner after we get done shooting.  It’s like my treat after a long week ha!  I usually put it on Snap & Insta Stories so stay tuned later.  I plan on going to the beach on Tuesday, so hopefully it won’t be too crazy out there!  I’m the local that likes to avoid all the crowds and go when it’s quiet..sorry tourists! 😉

About my outfit–I don’t think I’ve ever worn one piece of clothing in my closet more than this denim jacket.  It’s been such a staple for me this past season and seriously goes with everything!  It hits at just the right spot and is the perfect amount of fitted without being tight.  At 50% off right now, it’s such a steal!  Don’t wait on this–I’m pretty sure their prices will go back up tomorrow.  If you want some other great deals, be sure to check out my last blog post on all of my top picks from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale!  You can save up to 40% off through June 4th!!

Lastly, I’m just going to be honest and say that if I were to wear this romper again, I would take off the belt.  I really just don’t think it’s necessary and it would look more like a dress, which I think is super cute!  Fit Tips: My denim jacket runs TTS (if you’re in between sizes, you can size down).  My romper also runs TTS for a junior cut.  If you’re in between sizes, definitely size up in this one.  Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a fun and safe Memorial Day!  xoxo, Christian

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2678518″]

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

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2677477″]

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

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.

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

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!
