After five days in Mexico City, I can’t help but be completely inspired by all things Mexico. It’s one of my favorite places to travel to. I just love everything about it. The culture (getting in touch with my own roots), the food, the music… everything is just so magical. Although the city is definitely a little more business casual (think New York during the week), outside of the city is bursting with Mexican culture and has been inspiring my style since I returned. It’s also inspired my love for turbands this summer.
I can’t get enough of them! This one is from Zara but I’ve been mainly using silk scarves (tutorial on how to tie turbands, perhaps?). I’ve also got my eye on this one which has a wire built in for easy styling. So chic. Trust me, you’ll want to wear a turband with every outfit this summer. You can see me styling it here and here on Instagram.
Abercrombie & Fitch is having a killer sale right now. Yup, you heard me right. Abercrombie & Fitch. They’re back, with better styles than ever. Think of it as your new affordable go-to store for cool, effortless styles with a Madewell vibe. Their beat-the-heat sale is going on and today is the last day to score NEW styles at 60% off! I purchased so many amazing pieces and am literally giddy for this and this to arrive.
So get to it and start shopping! This Abercrombie & Fitch summer sale ends tonight!
I generally steer clear of wrap style dresses because of the lack of coverage in the front (read: not large bust friendly). But I grabbed this floral wrap dress on a whim while roaming through my local Forever 21 RED store (these are WAY more organized than regular Forever 21 stores, by the way). And to my surprise, it actually fit like a glove! Although I wouldn’t call this a modest fit, it still covers enough to make feel comfortable enough to wear it during the daytime. I actually had to go sans bra with this dress because of the low cut. But these are a life saver! I wear them all the time in the summer and have a few backup pairs because I like to travel with them. They’re seriously the best.
I actually wore this floral wrap dress to my best friend’s birthday dinner cruise and had several people walk up and compliment me on it. They paired perfectly with these sandals for a night out! I also love the way it looks paired with this basket bag. I can’t get enough of these!! I’ll be doing a round up of my favorite basket bags this week so be on the lookout for that post soon!
And is anyone else going crazy with summer wear? I’ve been shopping like a maniac for new summer styles! Everything from sandals to skirts to dresses. I can’t stop! I added a ton of new products to the Style Edit shop page for those who are also in a shopping mood. Pro tip: I update this page daily with new products! So be sure to check back regularly. I always try and find the best deals and new items around the web and I’ll always share them with you on this page!
Target just released some new items from the Who What Wear Collection and it is good. I’ve already purchased this weave circle bag in both the natural and black. Helloooo Clare V. dupe. And for $25? Are you kidding me?! Such a great buy. I also finally got my hands on this striped ruffle sleeve blouse as seen on the lovely Angela Fink in the image above. As soon as I saw it I had to have it and can’t wait to wear it in Mexico in a few weeks. Pairs perfectly with distressed skinny jeans and these block heel slides.
Target is seriously killing it right now. It seems like it comes in waves, and right now this is a good wave with everything from clothing to home decor. I seriously want it all. I even caved and purchased this beautiful faux palm plant to go with our new brass bulb lamp and mid-century tv stand. I also picked up a few vintage inspired throw pillows like this and this.
Did I mention they have a lot of good stuff right now?
Trust me when I say a few of these Who What Wear Collection pieces will definitely sell out. Starting with the weave circle bag and striped ruffle sleeve blouse. Most of this was already sold out in stores! #toomuchgoodstuff
Guys, we finally made it to Friday. If you were with me right now, you’d see me laying face down on the ground not moving. Because that’s how I feel. #pooped.The last week and a half have literally flown by and days are basically blending together at this point. But you know what? Cheers. Because it’s the freakin’ weekend, baby!
I’m currently in a fog right now because all I can think about is my upcoming trip to Mexico City. Eeee! Yes, that’s me squealing in excitement. Did I mention I could use a vacay? Steven and I will be headed there next month and I’m literally giddy with joy. But now comes the preparation: shopping. Lots and lots of shopping. I’m the kind of person that will buy two weeks worth of outfits for a four-day weekend just to feel prepared. So I’ve already started outfit planning. But when you’re planning a trip someplace you’ve never been, how on earth do you know what to pack? Well, this is my fool proof “what to wear on vacation” outfit. A comfy top for warmer temps, a distressed pair of jeans and easy to throw on slides.
And speaking of shopping, there are a TON of good sales right now. I actually struck gold today because basically everything on my list for this trip is now on sale. #hellsyeah. This dress, for instance, is perfect for day wear and exploring and is currently 20% off. Score! I plan on wearing it with these simple slides (currently 40% off!) for a chic, casual look. I’m also eyeing this gorgeous dress with flat sandals for an understated elegant night out. I also found the skirt of my dreams on sale for 30% off (I literally died when I found this skirt) and plan on pairing it with this simple bodysuit. And how perfect is this fringe sweater (also 40% off) with a pair of cut-off Levis? I also wore this jumpsuit (under $50!!) to the #rStheCon Finale Party and loved it! So It will definitely be going into the suitcase for this trip. And don’t forget fun, statement earrings! I can’t get enough of my DIY tiered tassel earrings, but here is a very similar version for the DIY-impaired.
Not a bad list, right? So now you have some ideas on what to wear on vacation.
Hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend! I won’t be doing anything. And I thoroughly look forward to it. 😉
