Tribal chic dresses

Tribal chic dresses
I took an online shopping chance at this dress... I really wasn't sure how it would fit or how I'd feel about the print, but it was super affordable and worth the risk, I figured.  I love tribal prints and I felt like a sassy dress was the easiest way to add some crazy color to my wardrobe! 
I had a hard time choosing... I'm loving ALL of these prints!  And I'm seriously considering purchasing the same dress in another print before they disappear... it's THAT comfortable!  The fabric is extremely soft and lightweight, and has a little bit of stretch.  I'm also a huge fan of the length!  You don't always find dresses that come past the knee... but this dress hits exactly where I like it to.  Major plus: you can also snag this dress in solid black or blue!

Shop my Tribal Chic dress HERE or click the thumbnails below!  It's on SALE!!

Which print is your favorite?  Or do you prefer the solid color?  How would you style this dress?  Happy Friday fashion loves!!

black & white & checkered all over

I recently purchased this Romeo & Juliet Couture black and white checkered skirt at Last Call Neiman Marcus during our blogger event!  It's so lightweight, flow-y and comfortable!  I paired it with this cute black and blue LC Lauren Conrad blouse and simple black accessories! {details & links below}
 Great news!! The skirt is on clearance and you can snag it for even cheaper than I did!! Last Call Neiman Marcus is SUCH an amazing place to score designer steals! Shop the skirt HERE! Hurry, I'm sure it won't last long and you can't ask for a better price!! 

The blouse wasn't purchased that long ago but I'm not seeing it online so here's a few similar LC Lauren Conrad pieces: Navy Lace Chiffon Blouse // Blue Lace Chiffon Blouse  Both lace blouse options are also on clearance!  

My necklace is from Forever 21 // Clutch is Daisy Fuentes {old} (p.s. love her!)  // Shoes are Moda from DSW {old} {shop similar here}

it started with a necklace

I've been obsessing over this statement necklace for the last few days!! It's SO pretty... even prettier in person than pictures can show!  I decided to build a cute, girly outfit around it! {details below}
The necklace, tank and metallic blazer are all from Kohls.  The skirt is from the Proenza Schouler for Target collection.  The clutch is LOFT and the pumps are Guess.  Unfortunately, most of these pieces are on the older side and are no longer available.  But this is a simple outfit to recreate and you probably have many of these pieces in your closet now!  

Tanks and T-shirts + flowing, girly skirts is a huge trend right now!  I love the mix of casual and sassy! I can't help but think of Carrie Bradshaw's infamous little pink & white dress with this trend! 
Choose a plain tank top, any color and pair it with a sassy skirt and you're good to go!  I decided to class it up a little with a fancier blazer.  The light cream color is daytime appropriate but the gold metallic weave gives it more interest and pulls out the gold in the necklace!
Happy Monday loves!  Hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

summer trends from Last Call Neiman Marcus & Grapevine Mills

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a fabulous blogger event hosted by Grapevine Mills Mall and Last Call Neiman Marcus!  After cocktails and fabulous hors d'oeuvres from Cozymel's, we were treated to a mini fashion show highlighting the 2014 summer trends.  

Soooo, what's super HOT?  Keep scrolling...
{Boyfriend Jeans/Distressed denim}
There's nothing easier than throwing on a comfy pair of jeans and a white T or tank... throw on some super cute, feminine heels and a statement jacket and you're good to go!
Is anyone else OBSESSED with this jacket??!
{Maxi dresses & flowing skirts + PINK}
Long flowing dresses, bright pink and floral patterns are huge this summer!  I love this easy breezy style because there's nothing more simple than one piece head to toe!  Keep your accessories and shoes simple and metallic and you can easily go from day to night.
{Black & White}
Always easy, and the possibilities are endless.  Black and white allows you to mix and match patterns for maximum impact.  
{Wedge shoes}
Big, small, colorful, black & white, patterned... it doesn't matter.  Wedges are huge for summer and can I just say thank you because they're SO comfy!
We're seeing fashionable sportswear everywhere!  Check out this ultra chic dress and killer sneakers!
{More black & white}
{Patterns & Chunky Heels}
Tomorrow marks the first official day of summer!! I have to say, this summer's trends are some of my favorite all-time looks.  I have always and will always be obsessed with Black and White.  I think it's so classy and I love the contrast.  As you can see, there are many ways to play with this trend.  Mixing patterns and textures is the way to go.

And as bold as black and white is, don't forget to go bold with your color and patterns too!  Hot pink is a must and when it comes to patterns, the bigger and crazier the better!  Don't be scared to mix your patterns... this trend doesn't always last long but it's SO fun so take advantage of it!  Enjoy being girly this summer and cover yourself in florals and fun, flirty patterns.  Be colorful and be BOLD.

HUGE thank you to Last Call Neiman Marcus and Grapevine Mills Mall for hosting us at this fabulous event, and for even giving us a gift card to spend!!  I was honored to be your guest and had a blast! 
 So what did I buy?? Well, I surprisingly limited myself to only two purchases... but they're both FABULOUS!  Of course I took full advantage of the black and white trend!  Stay tuned to see how I style these beauties!
Happy Summer y'all!
