Silk Wrap

French Connection Dress ℅  YSL shoes / LV bag / Stella McCartney sunglasses
This weekend I was at the French Connection store shopping their Fall collection, and as always, I was a fan. This silk wrap dress fits like a glove. Navy, red and white is a classic color combo that never fails, and I will wear my favorite heels at any chance I get. I am still swooning over my vintage LV bag that I scooped up at a thrift store for $20! I recently moved into a house, and one of my favorite things to do is go to thrift stores when they first open in the morning, and be one of the first to get a look at that day's shipment. I have found many of my home's pieces there, and I really enjoy refurbishing them. Not only are they so much cheaper, but they also have so much character and I find a lot of retro treasures in there!

Lulus dress / Chanel bag / Valentino flats / gucci sunglasses via smart buy glasses

This LBD is one of my favorites right now because of the structure and flare. I wear black 6 out 7 days, and while I am most comfortable in it, sometimes I like to add a pop of color to feel more feminine and fun. These pink flats (although they've given me countless blisters) are my favorite pop of color. Although they're pink, the rockstuds balance them out. I've worn this dress twice in the past couple weeks, and because it's so easy to wear, I predict I'll throw it on several more times.

I have never been a sweatpants girl. I didn't jump on the Juicy tracksuit bandwagon…believe it or not. But when I tried these pants on, and felt how soft they were, I was sold. I picked up this get up at a local store, (Market Miami) during a blogger brunch, and my blogger friends all voted for the nude look with the brown hat. I didn't own anything in this color scheme previously, so I went for it. I like the way it looks with my hair, and I like the black/brown contrast!

Messy + the new TCD

Welcome to the new and improved TCD! The fabulous Whitney gave this site a new outfit, as she called it, and I am so excited about it! I've been loving on this space of the internet for 2 and a half years now, and I felt it needed an upgrade. With that said, I just want to thank you all who visit this space. You have made my dream a reality, and I strive to make this place entertaining, inspiring, and a place where we can connect. 

The outfit.. 
A few years ago, I got white heels and felt ridiculous in them, so I gave them away. Fast-forward five years, and I love my white heels In fact, I have a number of them. I love this comfy wrap skirt, because it can be dressed up, but also worn with sneakers and a tee. These few weeks I have been overwhelmingly busy, and it has been evilly hot, so my hair has been in this Blake Lively state for days. And as long as this heat stays, my hot tools are staying in the drawer. But I don't mind the messy/done up contrast.

Denim X

I partnered with a few lovely bloggers (My Style VitaLush to BlushLife with Emily and Fashionably Lo) and American Eagle on the launch of their new Denim X Hi-Rise Jegging, which I'm wearing above. It's a great fit for oversized sweaters, as it almost works like a legging. I have wanted penny loafers for a while, but didn't want some that were too preppy for my taste. What an oxymoron- a not-preppy loafer. I like these because they are classic, and have some edge to them. And I can't ever have enough hats, so I added this smaller brim one! Don't you agree hats are the best accessories?
