sweatshirt dress : Playboy X Missguided
Mixing prints and patterns is one of my favorite looks but sometimes I find it so difficult to accomplish correctly. This dress, luckily came with it done for me! I love the mix of stripes, polka dots, and florals. It is very feminine so I added some chunky white Fila Disruptors to add something different.

I have officially made it to Florence, Italy and have had a wonderful first few days here. I wasn’t originally going to post these photos to the blog but I am so in love with this dress, I just absolutely had to.
This For Love and Lemons Dress is my most favorite piece I own and I made the decision of not bringing it to Italy with me. I only wanted to pack practical clothing that I could mix and match with lots of outfits while still leaving room for some new things.
Of course, before I parted ways with this dress, I had a mini backyard photoshoot in it!
Ciao for now

This morning, I am bringing you an evening/going-out look to get you through this Monday! A few weeks ago, Forever 21 was having a major sale and I got this metallic teal dress for $6!!! I am always a bit skeptical with shopping online at F21 because their sizing is iffy with my body type. However, it was a perfect fit! I paired it with a sheer black short-sleeve tee from AFRM underneath to edge it up a little bit and some lookalike Louis Vuitton sneaks from IKRush.
Sneakers have been a favorite of mine lately because, not only are they super in style but they make you stand out in a sea of high heels and booties.
I shot these pics with the lovely Abby Liudahl and while we were shooting, we ran out of natural sunlight and had to switch over to using flash. Both of us rarely use flash photography but these turned out so different from both of our regular blog posts, to switch things up a bit.

I shot this look almost two months ago and these photos have just been sitting in my drafts and I totally forgot about them!
I wore this pink jacquard dress once to a formal and felt the need to style it for more of a casual, going out look. Pairing almost any “one time” event dress with a leather jacket and boots or booties makes for a whole new outfit! I added a hat to give it a touch of personal style and my everyday rings and accessories give it the perfect edge.
SO… I have recently realized that the majority of my closet is denim, white t-shirts, and going out (party) dresses. The first two in that category make an easy everyday outfit but why leave out those party dresses? For this blog post, I wanted to style a look that acts as kind of a guide on how to wear you going out dresses in the daytime and for everyday wear.
For this outfit, I chose my absolute favorite, go-to party dress I own. It’s tight, bold, and stretchy (therefore comfortable and can be shared with multiple friends). ALSO- I think I only paid a whopping $9 for it on Missguided!
To make this sexy dress more daytime, or even business, appropriate, I paired it underneath a white button up blouse giving it a more sophisticated aesthetic. However, to keep it fun and moving from day to night, I paired it with a funky pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
This little trick can be done with almost any party dress, whether you wear something underneath, throw on a blazer or jacket, or pull a skirt over the bottom half. Don’t be afraid to get creative here!
