OOTD: Shirt Dress

OOTDCasualI had envisioned wearing this shirt dress with knee high sweater socks, boots, and a scarf but since it warmed up this weekend I had to switch things up a bit. I know everyone is saying this but I too am ready for Fall! I want to wear sweaters and boots and all things warm and cozy!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! Let me know if you need outfit ideas for anything :)

New Blue Shoes

StripedSweaterI know I’ve shared this outfit combo before but…. I just bought the perfect blue shoes for it. And guess what, they were only $13 bucks! I love comfortable shoes. I mean, I love the sexiness of heels and I do wear them but it’s nice to have shoes that just feel good. Lol. I don’t see the exact same shoes on H&M’s site but these are pretty close: Canvas Sneakers

I am not rich. Lol. But that’s okay because mo’ money mo’ problems right?….right? Ha…maybe. What I do know is that there are some amazing fashion blogs out there with outfits that cost as much as my monthly grocery bill. I was talking to my friend Joi about it and she was saying how tiring it is to click on links to pieces that cost hundreds of dollars.

Who can afford that?! Not me. Case in point, when I first spotted the Charlotte Olympia Kitty Cat flats. I thought they were so cute. I had to have them. Then I googled them. $595? Dream over. But today, I am happy to share with you the most affordable options out there for kitty cat flats!

Let me know your thought on this new posting topic. Would you like to see more ‘I can’t afford that!’ posts?

Love,

Tommy Hilfiger Event

Tommy Hilfiger SurfMy first official blogger event! I was beyond excited when I was invited to the Tommy Hilfiger Surf Shack blogger preview. I’ve been working on a web project most weekends so it was nice to have a little break and head to the beach.

I love that they decided to show this collection via traveling bus! Preppy + beachy isn’t the most common combination but they work well together. Everything was as cute and comfy as the stuff you imagine wearing on a sunny summer day but with a more classic look.

I had a lot of fun trying things on and chatting with fellow shoppers. And I’m dying to show you the jumpsuit I got! I was a little nervous trying it on, I knew it would be a major win or a major fail.

I’m really interested to see what you guys think about the new summer pieces. Check out the collection and let me know your thoughts! Surf Shack Collection

P.S. Photo credit & love go out to my awesome boyfriend. He writes, acts, produces and still makes time to help me do what I love! You can learn more about his adventures in the world of entertainment by visiting his FB page: William Camacho

Atlantic Pacific Inspired Outfit

Happy Monday! Today’s look is inspired by a very popular fashion blogger, Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific. I love her style and her signature dark shades. I think my personal style has a different vibe but I definitely lust over a lot of her pieces.

My goal was to recreate an outfit similar to the one Blair had on HERE while still keeping it affordable. My skirt is actually a dress so that’s automatically 2 pieces for the price of one. My shades are a $5 swapmeet find! I love them. I’ve always wanted some cool Ray-Bans but they cost way more than five dollars. My sweater was $25 from Forever 21, but everything in the photo was already in my closet so I spent $0 on this look :)

Is there another blogger’s look you’d like to see recreated? Or maybe you’d like to see a celebrity’s outfit recreated in an affordable way? Let me know!

Leopard Skirt Romance

leopardhighlow leopardOutfit LeopardSkirtHi :) So I’m keeping these date night outfit posts pretty simple. But I have some very creative posts coming up in the next few weeks (so excited!) and I think that’ll create a nice balance.

This skirt is from… you guessed it…Forever 21. Lol. I wish there were more options within that price range. On the bright side, there’s a huge F21 by my house with a pretty big selection of stuff.

My shoes are sooo old but surprisingly comfy. They’re a $20 Ross find. And last but not least, my top is made by the company I work for Joie :)

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Love,

Niki

Pink Shoes and a Silly Face

Silly FaceAwesome Nike Flex Shoes

We made it to Wednesday! Let the weekend countdown commence! So I wanted to focus in on my shoes really quickly because they make me super happy Lol. I beat my last pair up for a good two years and finally needed to get something more supportive for running. These hot pink Nike Flex shoes feel amazing, they’re very flexible. Plus they’re on sale right now!

On another note, I think it’s important to remember that life is about having fun. So no matter what you’re doing, enjoy it, have fun and try to not take yourself too seriously (This is one of my new year’s resolutions). And so in keeping with my resolution… I also wanted to share my mismatched socks & silly face with you. Happy Wednesday :)

Lots of love,

Niki
