DOUBLED UP

Mike caught a rainbow and my day was made :) 

Dresses: H&M{similar style}
Vest: Forever 21 {similar here}
Sandals: Charlotte Russe
Purse: London Fog {similar here}
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Necklace: {similar here}
Watch: Anne Klein {similar here}
Rings: H&M

Yes I am wearing two dresses. I got these two on super sale at H&M, originally both the same size but I accidentally shrunk the black one! Fortunately, the layering effect works for these simple tshirt dresses and these gladiator sandals aren't too bad either ;)

I will be at the beach all week so posts will be a little shorter than usual, trying to soak up as much sun as possible!

Thanks for reading!

FEELING 23

Dress: Ark & Co. via LuLu*s
Sandals: Charlotte Russe {similar heredifferent color option,
 flip-flop version}

Today is my birthday AND my favorite day of the week. Doesn't get much better than that...or does it!?
Around here birthdays are a biiiigggg deal, my mom has always gone out of her way to make every year one to remember and Mike and my friends seem to have caught on to the tradition because they always seem to have something up their sleeves to make the day extra special. The celebration starts tonight and continues throughout the weekend all to be followed by a week at our beach house. Have I mentioned how much I love birthdays?! 

 Anywho onto the outfit! First, please excuse the tan lines and fly aways. Mike and I shot pictures for this week shortly after a major tan session and I didn't really think about strap placement. I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on Pinterest, only to find out that it is an Ark & Co. piece available at LuLu*s so of course I had to have it. It is perfect for those pampered days off but I am really looking forward to dressing it up to the nines! 

As always thanks for reading,

NO IT'S NOT HALLOWEEN

oh my, undone nail no no over here
Top: Gap {similar here}
Jeans: Alloy
Pumps: LuLu*s
Clutch: ClutchLine Creation
Necklace: old {similar here
Watch: Anne Klein {similar here}
Rings: Forever 21

Do any of you avoid these color pairings? Black and orange & yellow and black. It just seems like a given that I will end up looking like it is Halloween or a bumble bee so I rarely wear these pairs. But I was recently inspired by my clutch, the lining (seen here) is a vibrant orange that I love, so I decided to add some orange to my look and hope that no one gets confused with what time of the year it is ;)
Umm how about them undone nails? I have been holding off on getting them done/ doing them myself since tomorrow is my birthday and I figured I would treat myself to a pampering session in the afternoon. We all need those daily from time to time, amiriiight?!

Happy Hump Day!

MATCHY MATCHY


Top: Target {other floral options here & here}
Pants: Old Navy
Shoes: Old Navy {similar colorlove these}
Purse: Michael Kors
Watch: Anne Klein {similar here}  
Earrings: {similar here}

Since graduating I have been spending the summer unpacking and getting settled back into my old room at home, catching up with old friends and working here and there at the children's clothing boutique a block up the road that I worked at all throughout high school. It's crazy how just a couple of blocks can hold so many memories and I have to say moving back home was the best decision I made, I love DC, always have, always will. I am truly loving this "time off" and ready for my month of holidays to begin before looking seriously for a job (can you say daunting!).
I wore this outfit to the boutique over the weekend and the print is one of my favorites. It's fun yet sophisticated, plus it's way more intriguing when florals are paired with stripes anyway. I chose these berry colored flats because why not, sometimes a girl just wants to get all matchy matchy.

POPSUGAR MUST HAVE BOX REVIEW + DISCOUNT CODE

Your regularly scheduled Menswear Monday has come to an end, if you haven't noticed the past couple weeks I have been weening you guys off of with review posts and giveaways (my way of bribing you all ;) ). Truth is that regardless of how much I love mens fashion, those posts take a lot more brain power and creativity, two things I am lacking this summer since my mind is already on my vacations...which start next week! Also, surprisingly, many of you have noted that you want to see more of my looks. So all in all I think this is a win win for the both of us. However, that doesn't mean that menswear has completely disappeared from my blog, I've got a pretty stylin' boyfriend who is always down for a little photo shoot (last seen here) and plenty of inspiration to go along with it so keep your eyes peeled for a few menswear inspired posts that are sure to be coming your way :) 

Now on to the good stuff!
I was beyond excited when the June POPSUGAR Must Have Box arrived in my mailbox, but it wasn't until I opened it that I became impressed. I was always wary as to why people would subscribe to a box, but now I get it. You receive the perfect mash up of goodies and products that allow you to decide whether or not you would purchase the item again and it also gives you the opportunity to fall in love with a brand, which if you are anything like me have fallen hard for Turkish-T.

Emily Giffin's The One & Only | Perfect to bring to the beach with me Sunday, although I've already read a few pages and not sure I will be able to save it until then! 

SACHAJUAN Shiny Citrus Body Lotion | Loving this! It smells AMAZING and feels divine.

Turkish-T Beach towel | This is the gem, I am super excited about this because it is lightweight, the color is perfect and I love having something pretty to sit on while at the beach. Also I can imagine using it for a picnic. Perf.

You Smell Lemon Wet Wipes with Aloe | Smells fab and great packaging for on the go.

Lollies Basics Hair Tie 3-Pack | These are great because you can use them to tie up your hair AND as bracelets! 

One Potato Two Potato Hawaiian BBQ | Okay I'll be honest, Mike, my mom and I ate these before I had time to photograph them with everything else (hence why they aren't in the picture above). For someone who doesn't ever eat chips I really enjoyed them, that's saying something. 
Native Union $15 gift card | I will definitely be using this soon, I am not much into gadgets and whatnot but have my eye on the Tassel micro USB.

The best part is what a deal you are getting when receiving these boxes. 
The suggested retail is $115 and you get it for $39.95! It's a total steal!

Want to try out POPSUGAR and get in on the goods?! I am offering all of my lovely readers a coupon code for $10 OFF a 3-month subscription, by entering code JUNESELECT10 at checkout. Head over to https://musthave.popsugar.com/ and take advantage of this discount code (ends 6/30/2014).

POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.
Happy Monday!

Cosmetics Case / Dream Bouncy Blush / Daisy by Marc Jacobs Body Lotion / Dream Fresh BB Cream / Pressed Powder / Baby Lips Lip Balm

I love love love to travel but it can be exhausting, timely and can turn into a hard days work, which is why I like to have some of my faves along with me for the ride. Last week I posted my travel attire and figured I would continue with my little travel series and share with you what I like to bring with me onboard. Obviously all the essentials are necessary like wallet, keys camera and phone but beyond that you need a few more things, alongside the wine offered onboard to keep you calm, cool and collected! Ooooo and what about those lovely warm, moist towels they bring you after a little snooze sesh, love those.

The beautiful Deirdre over at Love, The Skinnys hosts a weekly 'Fashion Fits Everyone' series and I bet you'll never guess which blogger is being featured today?! Okay, okay, it's this chick! So head on over and check out what I have to say ;)

Have a fab weekend!

CLASSIC WITH A TWIST

Top: Target {similar here}
Shorts: Cynthia Rowley via Marshalls {option here & here}
Shoes: Old Navy
Purse: Forever 21 {similar here}
Watch: Anne Klein {similar here}  
Earrings: {similar here}
Rings: H&M

It's Thursday! This week flew by, probably because I just had a 4 day weekend with Mike out in the burbs, BUT nevertheless my favorite day of the week has arrived and the weekend is quickly approaching :) I love a classic button up and figured that with these warmer temperatures and no office dress code in sight I would add a little twist and knot this one at the front. Totally appropriate since it is summer and all, plus it shows off more of these fab shorts I scooped up at Marshalls! The print and color palette spoke to me, and my mom, technically she's the one who found them. I paired them with more white and some gold accents since I always feel cooler (temperature wise, I'm in no way insinuating that I might be cool or anything, seriously, I mean my mom picked out my shorts) in neutrals. 

Now on with my favorite day of the week, and as always, thanks for reading!
