I tried to emulate the effortless look in the street-style trends I’ve been seeing. I loved how my tall gladiator sandals looked with the outfit, and they were so comfortable.

I wore the outfit to a few yard sales earlier that morning and got a few dirty looks from the older ladies. It made me question the outfit a bit, but I loved it and wouldn’t let the opinions of others change my mind.

I’ve worn this thrifted hat before, but it’s been one of my favorite pieces lately. As soon as we finished this shoot, the sprinklers started up and got me soaked, but it was a welcome relief from the heat.

I found these Audrey Brooke shoes at DSW. I remembered seeing some similar Prada shoes online and I was amazed by the similarities.  I ended up buying them in-store and paid around 20 dollars, Once I found these, I knew I wanted to make a casually chic street-style outfit.

This look is so simple to do. I absolutely love tying in a nude top and shoes because it looks so clean, and it really shows off your natural beauty.I made my makeup a little darker; it’s always fun to do bold makeup and keep your outfit simple and chic.

I also tried the top braid, which was so much easier than I thought it would be! I’m awful at doing my own hair, so almost every time I try to follow a hairstyle tutorial video it ends up a mess. This time It wasn’t actually as hard as it looked.

 Overalls have become a staple in fashion, whether it’s a piece people like or hate. I love the fact you can really play with the laid back feeling they give off.  You can wear a simple T shirt and sandals for a quick on the go outfit. But you can also dress it up with some statement pieces to add flair and style to an otherwise dressed down ensemble.

What’s one way that you love to style your overalls? :)

One of my best friends got me a tulle skirt for my birthday, and I was so excited to use it in a post! I adore the tulle look. I always remember the opening to Sex and the City and I love the girly simplicity of the skirt. Did you know that the actual skirt from the opening scene was a thrift find that Patricia Field found quite randomly? It’s amazing to think that a discarded piece could become something so iconic!

I added a bold lipstick to contrast with the white skirt. I chose an NP set in the color Florence. This is one of my favorite lipstick brands, and it’s a cheaper one. I paid $5 for it on sale at Target.

I am a lover of all happy patterns and flowers. I saw this sunflower dress at Altar’d State about a month ago. I opted out due to the price, but I acquired an extra 40% off sale items coupon! I snagged it for $25.

Every time I want to do a shoot in the middle of nowhere, it never seems far enough. This time I ended up finding this amazing field with a broken down Ford truckbed.

The details of an outfit can set you apart. Whenever I pick pieces to complete an ensemble I always go with ones that are more unique. I kept the jewelry minimal to keep the overall appearance very clean. I really wanted to keep the scalloping on my skirt as a focus, especially since it accents the legs so well.

When I think of fun American styles, I imagine the Rosie the Riveter scarf, denim, and bold red. I wanted to represent a little of each part of the iconic look. I wore a more current version of the scarf, and kept my hair on the messy / curly side so I looked a little more ready for some fun fireworks and lake time! Let me know an iconic American  style  that you absolutely love!

I hope everyone has a safe, amazing, and very happy fourth of July! :)

I found this amazing dress at Goodwill this past winter, and since it was only 5 dollars, I had to get it! I know during the summer there’s always some type of little mixers or whatnot. I feel like wearing a short dress is typical. I added my flapper headband I got for Halloween as a belt. I always try to find things that are multifunctional and this headband looked super cute as a belt as well. If I don’t have a previously bedazzled belt I stick with a elegant brooch that I can pin to a ribbon or a belt with material. It’s one of the cheapest and most unique ways to detail your outfit.

Pink Dress: Goodwill: $5

Belt: Zara:$20 (It’s actually a headband)
