Striped Wrap Dress

Hello again, readers! I again apologize for the lack of posts- it has been one hectic summer for me! Not only am I busy with job and house searching to help prepare for my son to arrive (my due date is November 4th), but I also have been trying to remain social and get things done before classes start again. Though many things have happened this summer and a lot of things have changed already in the short 8 months of this year, one thing for sure hasn’t: my love for dresses.

I wasn’t always a big fan of dresses (trust me when I tell you that I barely owned any aside for special occasions), but after my senior year of high school and even more recently, I have developed an extreme fondness for dresses. Dresses are so feminine in nature, and are all so different, perfect for uniquely expressing yourself.  Continue reading

A 4th of July Inspired Outfit

If any of you readers have been following me on social media (links below the post if you haven’t!), it would come to no surprise to you that I have had a rather busy past few months. For those of you who don’t know why it has been so busy, or don’t follow me on social media it is because of one reason: I’m pregnant! At 5 months along, you could say that life has been a huge change in direction for me lately, but that doesn’t mean that I’ll stop bringing you all blog posts! Today’s post happens to be 4th of July themed!

The 4th of July has always been a holiday where myself and fellow Americans take the time to celebrate our freedom and independence with barbecues, beaching, boating, fireworks, and even an alcoholic beverage or two (or more). Forgoing the alcohol this year, I decided to celebrate in my own way with this adorable red, white, and blue outfit!

Red Ruffles

With the transition into another season, comes the last few of my winter style posts! In case you guys haven’t already noticed, red is a consistent color theme for me, especially in the winter months. For me, red is the perfect color to help you pop out from your surroundings, plus it is one of the few colors that really any one can pull off, while also adding some sexiness to the outfit. Today’s blog post features one of my most recent additions to my closet, which has a little bit of a fun and feminine twist to it: some puffy, ruffled sleeves!

I don’t know about you guys, but I have recently started to love some dramatic sleeves! This off-the-shoulder shirt instantly got my complete and undivided attention, due to its puffy, ruffled sleeves.  Continue reading

Think Pink (Part 2)

Hello, readers! Fall is just days away from starting, and as another season ends, another begins. With the transition of seasons for me, comes the transition of style for me. The warm, bright colors and patterns of summer are replaced by the cooler colors of fall (reds, browns, etc). As it is with every period of transition, it is time to say a bittersweet “goodbye” to summer, and to embrace the upcoming fall months with open arms. What better way to do that than a pretty, pink, feminine dress?!

This adorable dress I scored at Goodwill is PERFECT for a sendoff of summer, with its bright color and fun frilly straps.

Think Pink (Part 1)

Despite being the typical girly-girl, one thing I really have noticed is that there’s one color (aside from green, yellow, and orange) that my wardrobe really lacks: pink. Maybe it was I was tired of seeing it so much growing up (my room was filled with pink toys, decorations, etc), but either way, it seemed to disappear from my closet, being instead replaced with black and other darker colors. With these past few hot summer months and the changing of trends, I have found a new appreciation for pink, and I’m slowly incorporating more of it into my wardrobe again. So, for today’s post (which is part one of two parts), I decided to feature a cute pink dress, which I actually got as a hand-me-down from one of my besties, Marie!

Faux Leather & Lace Skirt

Happy Friday, readers! I’m back with another blog post and this time, it features two of my favorite fabrics: lace and pleather (fake leather). Though I’m sure you knew about my lace obsession (it’s in my blog’s name for a reason!), I am not so sure if you knew that I also love myself some faux leather every once in a while! So, with that in mind, for today’s post, I decided to don a nice sleeveless crop top shirt, and a cute little faux leather skirt (with a beautiful lace hem).

Though I caught myself on a lucky day where it was a bit cooler from the rain, this skirt is still perfect to wear on the warmer summer days, as long as it is not too thick and it fits the weather (i.e. not overdressing in faux leather leggings when it’s boiling hot outside).

Summer Florals and “Weddiquette”

With the turn of the seasons and the official start of summer upon us, comes the excitement of summer weddings. Weddings give you a chance to witness loved ones pledge their love for each other, sealing it with a vow and the beginning of their lives together. They are my absolute favorite, because who doesn’t love an occasion filled with love, fun, dancing, drinking, and good food?! Also, at least speaking for myself, I love any occasion that I can use as an excuse to dress up for, which includes weddings! The first thing that people always ask is, “what will I wear?” Well, for me, the dress featured in this post is the PERFECT wedding attire! 

IMG_1345

For this wedding season, despite the spring months already coming and going, I find flowers fitting for such an occasion. In my opinion, flowers are appropriate no matter the time of year, and their symbolism of love and affection really fits when it comes to attending a wedding! Nothing beats a good pop of color, and do not let anyone else say otherwise! Weddings are supposed to be fun, so don’t be afraid to wear a fun, bold (but appropriate) dress!

Modern Day Cleopatra Vibes

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a history nerd. While I’m not the most knowledgeable in terms of Egyptian history, I have always been drawn to the idea of it. Pharaohs, cursed tombs, the pyramids, I love them all. When you think of Egypt, a lot of people think of one person: Cleopatra. For me, today’s outfit (which is definitely one of my favorites to ever grace the blog) gives me all the modern Cleopatra vibes. From the skirt’s pattern, to its length, to its shape, to my caged heels, I definitely felt like a modern day Cleopatra in this outfit!

Red Suede Dress

Hello, readers! So glad to finally be back making blog posts! It’s been a longggg winter here in Minnesota, but with it finally being May, the sun is out and the weather is warming up, and with that comes the blog posts once again!

For today’s post, I decided to feature this cute little number that I scored at Macy’s, during their HUGE closing sale (I got it for about $9!)! It’s so fun of a dress, and I’m so glad that it caught my eye last-second before I had almost given up my search for anything to buy while there shopping with family.
