Can anyone else believe it’s almost summer? I can’t believe June is creeping up so quickly… but I love summer and am so excited to be at the beach for some rest, relaxation, sun, and fun!

Thinking of finding  a few cute pieces for summer? Today, I’m looking forward to sharing some style inspo:  summer essentials for your boho-chic wardrobe…  You can click on the product images to shop the post! 

Shorts

In order to achieve the boho style, ruffled shorts, interesting prints, and denim are the way to go… I personally prefer neutrals because they can be paired with different blouses. But printed shorts are in style this season, and they are definitely a statement-maker for a boho-chic gal!

After a short hiatus from posting a blog post here, I’m happy to be back. Sorry to keep you waiting. This semester is coming to a close, and I have been submitting assignments. All the while, my moving date to Nashville is coming closer. Over the next two months, I am excited to share new content and style inspiration for you.

P.S. Today is my birthday- yayay. I am road tripping to Richmond next weekend with friends to celebrate. *sprinkles glitter all over everything *just kidding* 

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

I’m looking forward to sharing this boho-chic/indie/romantic look with you, and also share a few life updates. 

Next week, I am traveling to Nashville, in order to get situated for my relocation in July. So, I’m looking forward to traveling like  a local, meeting up with a few friends, touring apartments, interviewing for jobs- and taking lots of pictures.

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

Today, I’m looking forward to sharing my top looks for spring from ModCloth with you. ModCloth continues to provide the highest quality with their pieces at affordable prices. A company originally inspired by thrift shopping, ModCloth’s style is a modern, polished take on vintage fashion with a touch of romance and edge. I thought the fit and length of these dresses was both flattering and appropriate for many situations. While the Pine All Mine Mini Dress, Story of Citrus Floral Dress, Maker of Merriment A-line Dress, and  Fluttering Romance A-line Dress would be appropriate for the office, the Impress Rehearsal Lace Dress would be beautiful for a date night, and Heart and Solar A-line Dress and Start Spreading the Mews A-line Dress have such interesting patterns to bring out the edgy girl in you.

I’m writing to you today from a french cafe while planning content (including several exciting collaborations), finishing a bit of homework, and enjoying a matcha latte and avocado toast. (Avocado toast has risen in popularity so much, and I’ve totally jumped on the bandwagon and started making it for myself with garlic salt, hard boiled egg, and olive oil on an English muffin quite often at home. )

At the moment, I currently musing several online boho-chic/indie/romantic style boutiques, so I am looking forward to sharing more looks from The Pink Lily Boutique, The Mint Julep Boutique, and Upper East Side Nashville. As for this outfit, I cannot resist shopping for flowing dresses from Francesca’s. I love how this red dress is gently fitted, and the bone coloring underneath is a unique detail. Wearing a jean jacket has also become a staple in my wardrobe.

Hoping you enjoyed this look, and I’m excited to share more blog posts with you.

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

After a productive weekend balanced with spending time with friends, planning content, and finishing up some homework, I’m feeling energized and ready to conquer the week. Over time I have learned to accept and love where you currently are in your life, and not hold your stage in comparison to someone else’s. What I continue to see is that we all have lessons to teach each other regardless of age and experience, and it is important to be open to those lessons. I am also accepting that it is not realistic to be happy all of the time, and it’s okay to be a little bit discontent and restless if you’re not exactly where you want to be. It’s okay to have a new destination on the horizon and feel excited, anxious, and hopeful about what that experience brings. Thinking the grass is greener elsewhere is never “the right frame,” but following your intuition about what’s meant for you gives you the answers you need….

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

Hope your week is treating you well. I’ve been super-busy with new content in the works, homework for my graduate program, interviews, and planning my move to Nashville in the next few months- there are a lot of exciting new things in the works. Spring cleaning is also on my mind, so as I restock my closet for the new season, I am also consigning and donating some pieces. It’s crazy how spring cleaning can feel like such a daunting task, but it feels so good to start clearing space for new experiences. Whether it involves consigning or donating clothes, decluttering, pinpointing a savings target, organizing your files, or simply clearing your mind…  Out with the old… In with the new.

Hello lovely reader. Thanks for stopping by.

As an ideal transitional piece from winter to spring- and for any special event- the LBD remains an easy go-to idea. Dolce Vita is one brand that combines a feeling of sexiness and elegance without crossing the line of being inappropriate. A black cocktail dress is, at best, an investment piece. If you invest in three form-flattering LBDs, you’re totally set.

With the concept of a capsule collection in mind, a black cocktail dress can become one of the most versatile pieces you own. If you aren’t already familiar with a capsule collection, the concept is fairly simple: You create more looks with less pieces. In essence, you purchase pieces that are simple, flattering, reflect your style, and use these basic pieces to create a wider variety of looks. For instance, you might purchase three blouses, two blazers, two pairs of jeans, and several dresses in different styles and colors in order to build your capsule collection. Twenty-somethings are often particularly interested in creating a capsule collection because it is most cost-effective if you are trying to be as budget-conscious as possible. If you live in an apartment or have a smaller closet, you can save a lot of space and money.
