White jeans are an absolute must have for Summer. And maybe I’m jumping the gun, but I’m wearing mine a little bit early now that Spring has Sprung. On our recent trip home, Jason and I hit some of my favorite hot spots in the city for dinner and drinks. And what better to wear out in Florida than white jeans and a fun blouse.
In addition to white being a warm-weather staple, I love pairing it with navy! This top by Leith has flirty cutouts and an on-trend ruffle. In this top, I feel like I’m on my way to my very own fiesta. Plus, I paired the look with pom sandals that remind me of my favorite Aquazzura heels, but at a fraction of the cost!
If you dolls saw my last post, you’ve probably gotten the hint that I’m a little obsessed with ruffles at the moment. Not too many, but just enough. I’m also obsessed with a good steal!
This black dress from H&M is the answer to both! It’s dressy but won’t break the bank. When I saw it, I initially thought it would be a great dress for dinner or an event on a Summer evening. However, the more I thought about it, I wanted to dress it down for a more casual look – even appropriate for work!
I love that the top of the dress is fitted and the ruffles aren’t overpowering, so I added an oversized denim jacket to play down the dressy-factor. For work, I added flats – espadrilles to be specific, because I thought the straw would add a chill and summery vibe. But I also see myself wearing it with my Gucci slides, or even sneakers. What I also love about this look is that it can easily go from day to night. I just take off the denim jacket, add some heels and my favorite bag – and I’m ready to hit the town!
What do you dolls think? Do you like the daytime or evening look better? Or would you rock both?

Happy New Year Dolls! Can you believe that 2017 has actually begun? While 2016 was pretty crazy, I really enjoyed the last couple of weeks of the year spending time with family. We spent the holidays laughing, shopping, and eating and drinking way too much. It’s been fantastic!
If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen my story spending New Year’s Day getting a massage and relaxing at the One Ocean Spa, overlooking Atlantic Beach. It was so relaxing and serene! P.S. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, then head over to my page because I share exclusive content via my page and Instagram stories. Check it out HERE!
Between spending time with family and visiting the beach, I’ve been hitting my old stomping grounds around Jacksonville. I actually showed Jason the old surf shop where I worked in high school, which is unfortunately going out of business now. I made sure to pick up some stickers and surf T’s to remember the good ol’ days. Besides the surf shop, we visited my favorite art museum, and my favorite neighborhood in the city. Little 5 points is a young and energetic area that feels a little artsy, edgy, and has the cutest stores, bars, and restaurants. There is actually an old movie theater which was once a venue where I went to my first concert. Oh the memories! We thought the neighborhood was the perfect place to capture my outfit of the day and snap some photos in the sunshine. For our afternoon exploring the city, I wore some casual, dark jeans from H&M. I actually got these on sale for $7. What a steal! I paired my jeans with a navy pinstriped blouse from Zara. I’m absolutely obsessed with the flared sleeves! I finished my look with my new taupe Saint Laurent bag (more on this to come), and my go-to spiked Louboutins. I felt a little bit classy, a little bit rock and roll. And in my world, I think that’s a perfect combination!
Hope y’all had an amazing start to 2017 and stay tuned for more posts coming soon!.
