If you haven’t noticed already, it is all about fringe this season. Which makes me think my mom can predict the future because she got me a fringe purse a couple years ago. It’s as if she knew that I would need fringe in my life. That woman never ceases to amaze me.

Fringe is the perfect way to add a boho flare to your outfits. No matter your style comfort level, it is so easy to incorporate into your outfits. From earrings to purses to scarves to kimonos, there is something for everyone. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it either. You guys, I spent less than $50 at Target for all three of these fringe items! #TargetStyle does Read More

When I was wearing this outfit, a sweet little old lady came up to me and said “Oh, dear! What happened to your jeans? You need a new pair.” I told her ripped jeans are in style now and that I ripped these on purpose (well, I had Cody rip them because he’s crafty and I’m not), and she looked at me like I was crazy. Haha!  Anytime I wear my ripped jeans around my grandpa, he says he Read More

I think bright moto jackets might just be my favorite type of spring jackets. Ok, moto jackets are my favorite style no matter what the season is, so it’s no surprise that I love them in bright hues for spring. But there’s something extra special about colored ones. So far the colors I have are mint, powder blue, bright blue, and red. The bright colors say sweet and cheery but the moto style says dark and dangerous. But mainly Read More

Off The Shoulder Top | Flare Jeans: similar | Black Heels: similar | Agate Pendant Necklace ℅ Arthur and Livingston | Gold Watch: similar

When I was in high school, I used to wear flare jeans/wide leg jeans (with heels) pretty much every day. I remember when people started wearing skinny jeans and I was like, “Ew! I do not like skinny jeans!” I think I even ranted to my mom about how horrible they were and that nobody should ever wear them. Haha! I obviously got over that because now they’re my fave πŸ™‚ But I have still always held on to my flare jeans and I’m so happy they’re a huge trend again this season. Also, I have a love-hate relationship with/a weird fear of  off the shoulder tops. But more on that later…

I am so in love with my tropical print jacket! This is one of those outfits that I love so much, I could wear it every day for the next month. If only it were socially acceptable to wear the same outfit day after day after day after day after day after day. But instead I only wore it two days in a row. First to the grocery store and then on a date night with Cody.

Can I get a whoop whoop for this striped dress?! They’re so easy to wear and so versatile. Any time I see stripes they remind me of my sister because ever since we were little, she has loved stripes. I think that’s what made me love them too…being the little sister, I loved pretty much everything my sister loved. Although, I’m pretty sure I would have developed a love for stripes on my own eventually πŸ™‚ Read More

I have been wanting this Cameo striped jacket ever since I saw it on Ashley last year (you should follow her IG account because it’s amazing) and I finally got it!!! Well, I got one very similar…same brand, same stripes, just a slightly different style. Of course, I had to copy one of her outfits for my first time wearing it πŸ™‚ I plan on copying all her outfits with this jacket because I love them all. Seriously, that chick has style! And she’s super sweet too. I hung out with her last year at Lucky Fabb in LA πŸ™‚

Who’s excited for spring?! This gal is! What am I most excited about this spring? Ice cream eating weather! Duh! But also the fabulous spring shoe trends. From prints (like these floral flats and these floral heels…I want them both!) to sneakers (like the bright sneaks I got from DSW last year) to bling details (like the ones I’m wearing), the right shoes can really transform an outfit. If I would have worn my outfit with sneakers, it would have been a super casual outfit. But add some fierce heels and you’ve got an unexpected sporty-chic combo…one of the season’s hottest trends. I just love that this season the rules Read More
