My Style Tips: Be a Chic Beach

I have had a rough few weeks, hints the lack of posts. This whole moving to another city to conquer the world and live my dreams thing has been a lot harder than I thought it would be:/  However chicettes, this too shall pass. In the midst of all the sulking and home-sickness I’ve experienced I realized I have never missed the beach so much in my life! I grew up near the beach and I always tell people how over the beach I’ve become, but I would give the left pair of my favorite gladiator flats to feel a wave crash against my skin, buuut not the left pair of these super chic flats in the look below:

If I ever make it to the beach before the end of the summer I want to do it in style. I love bikinis, but this year has been a year that I have wanted to try new silhouettes and designs and this bold print one piece will certainly do the trick. Paired with a great summer hat, beach bag and pair of light cover ups this look can go from fab to lous  all in one shot. And don’t even get me started with these super chic pair of gladiators that finish the look perfectly. Bottom line, I want to go to the beach and I want to be super cute when I do it.

If you too are on the way to the beach this summer or you’ve been and want to present a new look, try switching out the bikinis for a chic one piece and make it your own by adding a few pieces that pop 🙂

Peace Love Style,

“How’d you put that together?!”: Elizabeth

I’ve always said that I think one of the hardest styles to pull off is simple and classic. In a world where fashion can get pretty complicated, it is very refreshing to find someone who takes simple to a place that keeps it interesting. I ran into Elizabeth’s blog on where else other than twitter, I love that site! I fell in love with A Keene Sense of Style because it captures the way simple and chic should be displayed with classic lines and modern tweaks. It also helps that Elizabeth is such a doll! She wears her style effortlessly and it fits her so well!

Check out how she turned this look out and put it all together:

1. How did you put your look together?


I put this look together by starting with the key piece, this beautiful dress. I looked into my closet and knew that it was what I wanted to wear and then the wheels in my brain started spinning (as they usually do). I saw the scarf and immediately knew I wanted to incorporate it. First I tied it around my waist, and it just didn’t speak to me, then I tied it around my bag and it was the perfect addition. I kept the rest of my accessories simple by adding only a statement (clip-on) earring, and my go-to gold Michael Kors watch, followed by nude Louboutin shoes and my blush colored Prada bag. I love the way to pastels play off of each other. To top off this look I added a bold red lip for a little unexpected pop of color.

2. How would you describe your personal style?


I would describe my personal style as feminine and polished. I feel most confident when wearing dress and skirts and I always find myself gravitating towards materials like silk, chiffon, and lace.

3. What advice would you give someone who would like to achieve this look?


I would say to start with the dress and work around it. Be sure that whatever you pick is nicely tailored, a great fit always makes the outfit.

4. Where did you purchase the items you are wearing?


Dress: ASOS, Earrings: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Prada, Scarf: Vintage, Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Meshed Martini with a Twist

To say we were experiencing a heat wave is an understatement. This weekend I baked and broiled my way through the city and made sure I did it as cool as possible. I attended the Lily Kai Vintage Style Suite this weekend at the Buckhead Bottle Bar. I shopped, I drank, I ate and had a great time spending time with some of the fashionable women of Atlanta. It was so hot I left my camera in the car and didn’t get one shot of the fab event and I’m a little upset about that. Nontheless I really enjoyed myself and here is what I wore 🙂

What I am wearing:

I am thrifted from head to toe. I randomly have these style epiphanies that can’t be found in an average everyday go to shops. So I take to consignment shops and thrift stores to find a unique piece to display my random style idea.

I wanted to make my look pop and slightly more festive so I added my martini print scarf. This scarf brought a little life to an overall clean look and it also saved the fate of my neck from the heat. If I wore my hair down I am sure my neck would have fallen off. These sexy ankle strap sandals complimented the less is more mood of this look and paired nicely with the unique woven clutch. I really love how the look came together. What do you guys think?

Thanks everyone for stopping by! Enjoy your Monday! And Happy holidays 🙂

Peace Love Style,
