OOTDS Featuring my new Phillip Lim for Target Handbags

Here are some OOTDs from the past week:

SUNDAY OOTD: My favorite color palette to wear is probably black and white but i really like how the pop of color from the necklace adds dimension and interest to the outfit. The shirt says "More Issues Than Vogue" and I bought it from an ebayer that is located in the UK. I purchased a small but its still very big on me, so I had to fold shirt inwards and tuck it in from the back.

ACCESSORIES: Phillip Lim for Target Satchel / floral motif ring, watch, necklace-East Urban / Heeled Sandals-Tobi

Shirt-ebay / jacket & jeans-forever 21


I attended the OneRepublic concert on Friday and it was aamazing! I kept the outfit comfortable and easy by wearing a loose blouse and stretchy jeans while maintaining a polished look by adding my favorite tassel necklace and pumps.

Beach/Pool Wish List

We are mid way through summer and I still haven't gotten a chance to go swimming yet. Sadly, I am one of those people who starts the summer off with a plan to get "beach body ready"but procrastinates until summer is over. So please don't judge me and let me daydream about the essentials I would want on a poolside summer day.

I also wanted to share with you my first instavideo OOTD:

Well, Sorry for the boring post. I hope to have some more OOTDs and Hauls to share with you soon.

OOTD: Denim & Leather

This is just a recent OOTD I wore for our Bohemian Glamour photoshoot. You can't beat the comfort of denim and the edgy luxurious look of leather. Btw, that bag is my new fave!

Statement necklaces are the easiest to style. It's one of my go to items to "throw on" to help bring any dull outfit to life.

On the Streets:

Easy ways to style:

-with basic shirt and bright colored blazer
- under the collar of a button up
-over knit sweaters
-plain maxi dress
-shift dress
-bikini & kimono
-create your own by layering multiple necklaces 

How I styled one of my favorite piece:

Outfit Details: H&M Men's Shirt and heels, all jewelry from EastUrban.com

Tough Enough

Love wearing this look on a rainy day. The wedges keep my feet from getting wet and the anorak is a perfect cover up if you live in a hot and humid climate like I do.
