I used to love this combo together and somewhere along the way, stopped doing a ton of pattern mixing. But the truth is, I really like doing it and I really like the way these three prints look paired together. I also haven’t worn statement jewelry in a while so it felt fun to revisit this oversized necklace, which is still one of my favorites and was about $15 from Forever 21!

Denim shorts can be tricky. They are either waaaay too short, can have a saggy butt if they are too big or be an awkward length that isn’t flattering…read more >

As we head into June and the weather continues to get warmer, my daily uniform becomes a pair of denim cutoffs, a loose t-shirt and my trusty Birkenstocks. I now have four pairs of them and really want to snag a navy blue pair next! If you guys are curious on other ways to style them, check out my video below which shows how I wear them!

I love adding a pop of red to my outfits and thought that this bag and lipstick would be the perfect touches to this black on denim outfit. I just feel like it gives the overall outfit some “umph” you know?

I’ve owned this long skinny black scarf for a while and always love finding new ways to wear it. Earlier in the year I wore it around my neck like this, but think it would also be really cute tied in a bow over a crisp white button down.

How do you guys feel about the color red? Do you like wearing it or does it feel intimidating or too bold?

When I add something new into my closet, I usually try to incorporate my Mom’s advice that it should go with at least five things. This is not to say I don’t have a couple separates like statement blouses or patterned pieces that might be a bit more unique and harder to integrate or remix, but for the most part, I like my closet to be fairly cohesive and have everything go together. Case in point, this skirt. I have found so many ways to wear it and will be sharing all of the looks over the next week or so, but I’ve found it to be really versatile! And since it’s not a super heavy material, coupled with the light shade of denim, it makes for the perfect summer skirt! See how I’ve previously styled it here!

I hope you all have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! I just found out that one of my best girlfriends from Seattle booked trip out to see me super last minute and is arriving here Sunday morning. Eeeee, I’m over the moon!

Anyway, be safe, wear sunscreen and I’ll see you back here next week! xo

Can you guys believe that Memorial Day weekend is just a few days away?! To kickoff summer, Lands’ End has declared that today (May 23rd) is National Swimsuit Day and are offering 50% off their entire swim collection plus free expedited shipping for Friday delivery to guarantee that you’ll get your swimsuit before the long holiday weekend! How awesome is that?

Finding a suit that fits just right, can be quite the difficult task and feel really daunting, but luckily Lands’ End offers assistance online with their Swim Finder, which is an interactive tool to help discover the best swimsuits based upon body shape and preferences, while also providing tips on to how to take proper swimsuit measurements. The brand also has swim fit experts on-hand, whether you prefer calling or using their live chat, they are ready to help you find the perfect-fitting swimsuit! Personally, I always struggle to find a two piece that fits both my top and bottom since I run larger in the bust area but if I aim to fit the top, the bottoms tend to run too big. Luckily, at Lands’ End, you can mix and match the collections to find a suit that is juuuuust right for your body shape!

So to celebrate swimsuits, warmer weather and long weekends, I teamed up with the brand to show you four of my favorite suits and how you can easily transition your swimwear from the beach to brunch (preferably with a mimosa waiting) in just minutes. First up, this cute striped one piece!

Striped Swimsuit

I love mixing and matching patterns and really like how these printed shorts look paired with this classic striped one piece. I kept the rest of the look fairly neutral to keep the focal point on the suit and then draped a chambray button down over my shoulders as a finishing touch.

Floral Swimsuit

For this floral and feminine two-piece I wanted to draw out the green in the otherwise pink and white pattern, so I grabbed my dark olive utility shirt to use as a “cover up” and then went more casual by slipping on my favorite oversized denim shorts, which actually used to be my Dad’s work jeans! Then I brought in a little pattern play with my striped espadrilles but kept the rest of the look pretty classic with a traditional Panama hat, cognac leather tote and tortoise shell sunnies.

Palm Leaf Swimsuit

This might be my favorite suit next to the striped one. How cute is the palm leaves?! I integrated pattern play once again, and love how the blue pastel stripes compliment the muted pink and green leaf print. I wanted to keep this outfit light and bright so I opted for white sandals and a canvas tote, and topped the whole look off with my favorite woven straw hat and John Lennon-esque sunglasses.

lands end paisley print suit

Paisley Swimsuit

I went for a slightly dressier style when styling this paisley swimsuit and wore these fuchsia shorts that I felt matched well with the pattern, and really pulled out the pretty purple color. Then instead of draping the chambray shirt over my shoulders like before, I decided to tie it up at the waist, which helps defines my shape and creates a nice juxtaposition next to the flowy material of the shorts.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know if you have any questions! xo

I feel like if 1975 and 1995 had a baby, this outfit would be it. The John Lennon-esque sunglasses and front-button mini mixed with the ribbed mock neck and shirt tied at the waist create a lovely mix of the two eras and somehow play very nicely together. I love it when that happens because that’s what makes fashion so fun! :)

P.S. What do you guys think of my shorter ‘do? I chopped off the layers and made it into a classic bob, which I have to say I am definitely into. And I think the next time I go into the salon, which is fairly soon, I am going to go a shade lighter and be bright blonde for summer! xo
