    Restyled: Tie Dye Dress to Top

    Usually when I share a restyling on here, it’s something simple like pairing a top with a different bottom or wearing a particular pair of shorts with a bodysuit instead of a tee. But today I’m restyling a tie dye dress and wearing it as a top! I got this tie dye dress last summer and wore it in this blog post (here). I thought it would be a great tie dye top so I tied it up with a hair tie and wore it with dark grey shorts over the weekend! Dress/Top: Amazon (here) | Shorts: Kohl’s (here) | Ring: Etsy (here) It totally passes as a top, don’t…

    Navy Botanical Maxi Dress

    I went out to dinner last night for the first time since March! Outdoor dining started back up here in NJ about a month ago, but I haven’t gone out except for takeout and grabbing coffee etc. This is the first time I actually went to a restaurant, ordered, and ate there. Everything seemed really safe and I didn’t feel uncomfortable or anything so it was nice to get out. I loved that the restaurant gave QR codes for diners to access the menu on their phones so you didn’t have to touch any menus or anything. All the tables were spaced far apart, etc. Anyway, onto this maxi dress…

    Donut Tube + Leopard One-Piece

    What happens when you’re stuck in a heat wave, your community pool isn’t opening this summer because of COVID, and your parents won’t let you put an inflatable pool in their backyard because it will ruin their lawn? You sit in a donut pool float with the underground sprinklers going. It actually was really refreshing! I did take these photos pretty early in the morning though so that my parents’ neighbors wouldn’t think I was totally crazy. I love this leopard print wrap one-piece bathing suit too! I wore it last weekend when I did this whole tube in the sprinklers thing along with a white lace cover-up. Swimsuit: Aerie…

    Tulip Hem T-Shirt Dress

    I don’t know what it is about tulip hems, but I love them. In tops, dresses, whatever. I love that overlapping style. This style dress has been around for a while. I remember seeing people wear t-shirt dresses with tulip hems last year and loving the style. It’s a good mix of classic and fun – a perfect basic. I wore this light blue tulip hem t-shirt dress with my heart pavé pendant and neon accented sneakers over the weekend. Dress: Amazon (here) | Sneakers: New Balance | Necklace: The Styled Collection (here) This dress is so comfy, stretchy, and is double lined so you don’t need to worry about…

    Restyled: Strappy Bodysuit + Striped Shorts

    Was it a scorcher of a weekend for you where you live? It was 100 here yesterday and so humid. The evenings did cool down enough (90 with a tiny bit of a breeze) that I was able to get out and go for walks to get some exercise in. Last week, during one of the really hot days, I restyled 2 items that I shared on the blog last summer – my ribbed, strappy back bodysuit and my black & white striped pull on shorts. I think I wore the shorts with a brightly colored t-shirt last summer on here and I wore the bodysuit with khaki green pull…

    Pink & Blue Leaf Print Romper

    I had planned for days to wear this pink and blue leaf print romper. I pick out at least a week’s worth of clothes to iron ahead of time and hang on my garment rack. I like planning my outfits out ahead of time, especially when I know there are some looks that I want to photograph. The problem was the romper was new and I hadn’t tried it on so I had to improvise in minutes before I needed to head out of the house! The romper has buttons on the top half and I was both low-cut and pretty form fitting. I had two options. I could either…

    Clip Dot Balloon Sleeve Top

    I hope you’re all doing well and staying healthy. I got to spend the day out on the river (Delaware River) yesterday and it was nice and relaxing. I’ll write a blog post about it for next week. But, on to the point of today’s post – this clip dot balloon sleeve top. This top is the perfect example of mixing classic with sexy. A collared, button down shirt is classic for sure. Add in balloon sleeves and you’ve got a trendy look. Add in sheer sleeves and a sheer back and you’ve got a bit of sex appeal. I think this top is so fun and I love the…

    What to Consider Before Getting a Piercing

    Image credit Pexels Whilst most of us now get our ears pierced as a matter of course, piercings in other areas of your body are less common. Now, a piercing can be a great way to accessorize and express your personality. If done right, they can be stunning, transforming your look into something a little edgier but still feminine and stylish. However, as gorgeous as they may be, it’s important to remember that this is at the very least a semi-permanent change to your body, which carries a risk of infection and other considerations. Just like a tattoo, there are certain things you should think about before committing to a…

    Wildflower Tiered Shell

    I still don’t know why these sleeveless tops are called shells, but whatever. I love this blue wildflower print that’s all over this v-neck top and the tiered detailing. I wrote this top with denim shorts and flip flops over the weekend. Top: LOFT (here) | Denim Shorts: Kohl’s | Sandals: Old Navy I love how flowy this sleeveless top is. The flowy-ness of it keeps you cool during those really hot and humid summer days. This top is easy to dress up or down. Dress down with denim shorts like I did here. Dress it up with white jeans which woudl really make the top pop or black jeans when…

    Sage Eyelet Dress Romper

    If you saw photos of this sage green eyelet number and thought “Cute dress” well, I have a surprise for you – it’s a romper! I saw eyelet rompers like this last year and thought they were cute, but didn’t pick one up. When I saw them back this year I decided I needed one. This romper comes in multiple colors, but of course I went for the green. Romper: Pink Lily Boutique (here) | Sandals: Vici I love the details in this romper and the fact that it looks like a dress makes it even better. It’s not short, but even so it’s cool to know there are shorts underneath!…
