OOTD: Chambray Chic

Mixing prints in the summer time is so fun! I love mixing cute patterned tees with fun shorts. This look combines a stripe print along with an adorable palm tree tee. These striped chambray shorts are patterned but they are a great neutral piece that practically go with anything. To pick up more chambray in the look I wore my J Crew Sperry Topsiders that are made of a light chambray material. I love these Sperry's because they have small embroidered anchors on them which make them the perfect shoe for summer. 

To accessorize this look I stuck with gold accessories. I wore a simple gold belt, a whimsical statement necklace, along with my Alex and Ani bangles. In addition I wore my KJP pearl bracelet to add an extra nautical touch to the look.

OOTD: National Wear Lilly Day

Yesterday was National Wear Lilly day aka the first day of summer! For the special occasion I kept things casual with this Lilly for Target blouse. My actual Lilly dress is very formal so it wasn't exactly made for a lazy day and seeing a movie. 

Yesterday I saw the newest Disney flick Inside Out. To say it was adorable was an understatement! I loved it! I mean normally I love all Disney movies but this one was just too cute. The story line is great and it makes you feel a lot of emotions, naturally because the characters are emotions. I'm not going to lie I cried three times because it was so cute and sad. Also, it was kind of nostalgic and reminded me of my younger years. (Wow I'm 20 and I already feel old this kind of sucks..)

For a casual movie date I wore a pair of dark wash jeans and this adorable Lilly for Target blouse. I always wear jeans when going to a movie theater because they are always freezing! Even if it is super hot outside I highly recommend bringing a sweater or jacket into the theater to keep you warm. To complete the look I wore my Jack Rogers sandals and stacked bracelets.

Shirt: Lilly for Target 
Jeans: American Eagle 
Shoes: Jack Rogers

OOTD: 20th Birthday

Friday was my 20th birthday! The day was filled with friends and family and a lot of food. To start off the day I went to breakfast with my friends Mariah, Maureen, and Cathleen at my favorite local spot. Then Mariah and I got massages at my chiropractor office for a little relaxation. After that we got ready and went shopping downtown Naperville. We scooped up a few great things from J Crew, Sephora, and Anthropolgie. Then we completed our shopping trip at the Victoria Secret semi-annual sale! P.s. currently their sale bras are an extra 25% off in stores so go hit that up! 

After spending too much money we got dinner with my family, my two aunts, Mariah, and Maureen. We ate at one of my favorites On the Border. When the waiters sang to me they wished me a happy 21st birthday. The rest of the night we joked that I turned 21 instead of 20! It was nice to have dinner with my friends and family and to celebrate another stylish year. 

For my birthday look I wore this adorable lace romper I just picked up from Francesca's. It was on sale for around $25 which is a pretty good deal. It has a v-neck and a lower back with thicker straps. I paired it with a bold statement necklace from Baublebar which I picked up from the Nordstrom anniversary sale last year. To dinner I wore BCBG heels but to go around town and shop I wore my go-to sandals of the moment. I am obsessed with these rhinestone sandals from Target. For only $22 they are a great deal!

Romper: Francesca's 
Necklace: Baublebar 
Bracelets: Alex and Ani & Kendra Scott 
Watch: Henri Bendel 
Ring: Tiffany & Co.

OOTD: Humid Day Look

The weather in Illinois has been super wacky. It will go from hot, humid, and sunny to pouring rain, humid, and pitch black. So, it's hard to get up and dress for an unpredictable day! But, when I left the house it happened to be nice and sunny. Naturally I had to take advantage of the sun! 

For this look I wanted something that was light and comfortable. Humidity is not my friend. I wore this light white collared shirt to keep things simple. By adding a bright printed short I spiced up the simple top. I also love this top because it has this built in tie which is something I have been loving to do with my collared shirts. 

To accessorize this look I wore a bold pink statement earring. This pink statement earring from J Crew is one of my go-to pieces when I want to add a touch of color. I also wore my favorite Alex and Ani bangles along with a tassel bead bracelet from Armed and Readi. To finish the look I wore my go-to watch of the moment from Henri Bendel. 

I LOVE these Sperry Topsider sneakers. They have adorable leather ties that make them a little different from your average sneaker. Plus they go with everything. 

As many of you may know I scooped up a bunch of stuff from the Lilly for Target collection. These shorts I snagged from the kids section. One of the many perks of being short/ tiny is that you can get really cute clothes in the kids department for the fraction of the cost.
