Pretty When You Cry

For today's post, I've featured a STUNNING maxi from Boohoo.  This fab dress is currently on sale for $14 (originally $36), and it's available in two other colors:  lilac and nude.  I can't recommend this piece enough.  I've also attached a slew of other Boohoo maxi picks below for ya'll so remember to scroll down!

I usually like to belt my waist, but I didn't want to distort the shape of my dress!  I accessorized with a beautiful pearl statement necklace (from Armed & Readi) and carried a classy Coach satchel.  I threw on metallic wedges for extra height.
Dress:  c/o Boohoo ($14)
Shoes:  Coach Factory Outlet
BaG:  Coach Factory Outlet 
Necklace:  c/o Armed & Readi

Here are my fave Boohoo maxi picks as promised above:

The Classic Black Dress

Super excited to feature this gorgeous LBD today on the blog.  This stunning OASAP number is currently on sale for $17.90 (originally $35.90).  If you're looking for a cute but modest LBD, this baby's the perfect pick.  Why you ask?  Because it's longer in length and has a "looser" silhouette! HOWEVER, the mesh top and cutout back with bow give the piece a trendy vibe.  
I threw on statement earrings because I thought the neckline was beautiful all on its lonesome.  These SHINYMIX earrings are so stunning.  I love how versatile they are!  They look fab when worn with a cocktail dress or a casual graphic tee, and they can be worn all year long! *pumps fist*  Make sure to use code SENSIBLESTYLIST to get an extra 15% off your purchase - valid until the end of June.  FYI:  US residents get free shipping!

The Mint Flower Necklace

This flower necklace is RIDICULOUSLY cute.  In fact, it's probably the cutest piece of jewelry I've seen in a while.  Wild Orchid Boutique FTW!  The mint flowers are just adorable.  For $30, I highly recommend buying this piece.  It's on the pricey side, but the design is totally unique = worth it.  Clicky HERE to purchase it now...

I centered today's look around my new mint necklace!  I thought it'd look awesome with my teal Mya skinnies from Articles of Society.  I wanted the teal to really pop so I wore a nude chiffon tank and beige wedges to create a neutral canvas.
My vintage-inspired bag from Darling was the final touch - the beige matched my top and shoes perfectly, and the lime green complemented the teal beautifully.  This stunning bag is available in black if you're interested!  
Jeans:  c/o Articles of Society ($59)
Top:  c/o Pretty & Chic Boutique ($34)
Bag:  c/o Darling (55 Euros)
Necklace:  c/o The Wild Orchid Boutique ($30)
Shoes:  c/o Aeropostale

The Other Side of Yesterday

For today's post, I've styled a FAB graphic tee courtesy of Style Lately.  I'm a huge fan of their shirts.  They have a lot of fun tops available on their site HERE.  Anywho, this one says "you are the COCO to my CHANEL", haha.  LOVE!  I styled it with a fun maxi skirt from JYJZ.  I'll be selling this piece on my buyer page at the end of the month - YAY - so please keep an eye out and support.
This skirt is MAD cool because it has two high slits on the side.  Anything thigh-high is crazy sexy in my opinion - especially when it's windy out!  Wannabe Marilyn Monroe, asian style FTW.  HA!
I thought it'd be cool to wear my Deb gladiator heels because of the slits.  I love how they peek out.  Edgy like whoa, right?  Oh, and I carried my OASAP bow bag for a pop of color.  This ADORABLE piece is a must-have.  It's available in two other colors:  orange & black, but I HIGHLY recommend the red.  Scroll down below for product links!
Top:  c/o Style Lately ($32)
Skirt:  c/o JYJZ
Bag  c/o OASAP ($54)

The Sexy Playsuit

Ok guys, new obsession: playsuits/rompers.  Before I tell ya'll about this sexy piece from Boohoo, I have to confess that...I have absolutely no idea what the difference is between a playsuit and romper, HA!  Honesty FTW.  If you can enlighten me, please feel free to do so below!  Edumacate me, errbody.
ANYWHO, I never thought I would feel SO fab wearing a playsuit.  This piece is MAD flattering and super comfortable.  The deep-v cut made me nervous at first, but when I put it on it was just the right amount of scandalous.  The item's a bit pricy ($50), but it's well worth the tag in my opinion.  Great material, fantastic design, flattering fit, etc.  Clicky HERE if you'd like to purchase this for yourself.  FYI:  also available in ivory and rose.  Oh, and in case this piece isn't your cup of tea, I've provided a slew of other lovely Boohoo rompers below!

A close up of my statement earrings from Charlotte Russe.  These stunning beauties make me feel like an Aztec princess, haha.  CR has such an awesome jewelry selection.  Where do you guys like to shop for affordable accessories?

I know I've done several "Looks for Less" with this bag, but I gots to tell ya'll again.  If you're searching for a legit Celine-inspired Trapeze, this Chicwish piece is a dream come true.  I'm talkin' serious quality for a FRACTION of the price.

FYI: this piece is also available in black and navy - I got it in berry *grins* Oh, and here's the shocker. This baby's only $16.  Hell to the yes.  Also, I've attached a bunch of other sexy Boohoo dresses below so make sure to check 'em out!
I threw on a beautiful faux-pearl statement necklace for funsies and accessorized with other beige accessories to match.  Ya'll know how much I love nude wedges - hashtag ElongatesLegsLikeWhoa.  I know clutches are technically classier, but I prefer crossbody bags so I don't have to carry anything.  Yeah, I'm all sorts of sensible, practical, you name it, ha!

The Checkered Skort

Alrighty ya'll, today's post is MAD special to me because it's my first official look for JYJZ - I'm one of their summer buyers - and my first collaboration with Boohoo! *pumps fist*  I'm a huge fan of the aforementioned brands so today's blast is a real honor.
I centered today's look around my JYJZ skort!  I mentioned that I was a buyer for them earlier, but let me break it down for ya'll.  I basically handpicked pieces for them to sell online, and these limited edition picks will be available later this month so PLEASE keep an eye out.  
Anywho, I thought it'd be sexy as hell to pair the checkered skort with my sexy cutout crop from Boohoo.  Honestly, this is the cutest top I've seen in a while!  Bold, trendy, and unique - just the way I like it.  Make sure to grab one while you can by clicking HERE.

I accessorized with fancy pieces to bring out my inner girl, hardy har har!  My sparkly Lily Rain clutch is a closet fave.  It's the classiest evening bag I own.  It's a little on the pricey side ($64) but totally worth it in my opinion.  High quality fo shizzle.

Remix: The Cutout Crop Top

A couple weeks ago, I featured this fab crop top from Deb - clicky HERE for the aforementioned post.  I stuck with neutral colors before so I thought it'd be fun to experiment with more vibrant hues this time around. 
Crops tops are SO much fun. Although I love pairing them with high-waisted shorts & skirts, I think I'll be more adventurous next time.   How do you guys feel about the crop top trend?  
BTW, my flirty skirt is from Charlotte Russe.  They have a HUGE online selection so make sure to check them out!
Doesn't my new Accessory Mercado necklace complement my skirt well?  I LOVE the different neon shades!
