Monochromatic Elegance

Wearing: Paper Dolls via Little Mistress dress, Nina purse, heels, bracelet, + earrings.

When I got this dress I was expecting it to be a shorter length from the photo, but it ended up being a floor-length maxi on me. I guess I didn't think about the fact that a model was wearing it in the photo and I'm a super short person, but it was all still okay as it is such a stunning, figure flattering dress. I personally think that this dress can easily be worn casually, dressed up, or even to formal events like prom! I decided to dress it up in an elegant way, with my favorite sparkly accessories from Nina. I even put special effort into my makeup and hair for this gorgeous dress, which is quite a rarity for me, haha! I felt so fabulous in this whole look, it really makes me wish I went to fancy events and places more often... I really could get used to looking like this!

Boho Prints + Summery Knits

Wearing: Aeropostale (c/o) dress, Thrifted vintage Guess bag, cardigan + shoes, My Name Necklace "Carly" necklace, Elise M Collection necklace.

The other morning before I headed off to work I decided to take a few photos of my outfit, and I'm glad I did because the lighting was just gorgeous outside. A little plus side to working and blogging for Aeropostale now is that I get to have fun with my wardrobe and dress cute for work, and I especially like to do so in my Aero threads! I just got this new dress from their Lorimer line, and I'm completely obsessed with all of the various colors and prints in it. I layered a light knit cardigan over it and wore my comfy cut-out oxfords, and threw on a few necklaces and bracelets, including my recently new "Carly" necklace I had made from My Name inspiration coming from the iconic "Carrie" necklace, of course! I've been really wanting a special necklace that I could wear everyday, so I thought ordering a name necklace would be perfect! Hope you're all having a wonderful week!

When The Wind Was Green

Wearing: eShakti dress, Michael Kors via Mara Vintage Shop bag, Thrifted heels, Vintage earrings, Target hat.

I feel like it's been forever since I've worn a lovely little vintage-inspired dress like this one from eShakti. While I enjoy trying other styles and mixing things up a bit, I do love revisiting my favorite look of wearing a vintage or vintage-inspired dress, kitten heels, and a big ol' hat. I was so excited when eShakti offered me a dress from their site, because while I had never heard of their shop before they emailed me, as soon as I started browsing around I found that I was completely in love with just about every dress on there. They have so many gorgeous vintage-inspired styles and most of them are in a variety of beautiful colors, like this dress! Oh, and the best part is that the dresses are size customize-able, so you can either select from the standard sizes XS-6X, or add in your custom measurements. After that you put in your height, and select your preferred sleeve type and dress length. For my dress, I just selected the "as shown" option for each because I loved the way it looked already, but it's so amazing that you get to have a variety and pretty much make your own dress! I am absolutely in love with this site and recommend all of you to go check it out!
