Find of the Day: The V-neck Pocket Tee ($7)

It's time for another fab find on SS!  I'm super excited to tell y'all about today's FOTD because it's a wardrobe staple.  Solid tees as a must-have - simple but chic.  Jeans + tee = timeless combo that oozes steeze.

I got this item at Aeropostale a few weeks ago - FYI, I've collaborated with them before, but this item was purchased with my own money.  Trust me when I say this tee's ridiculously cute & comfy - super soft and lightweight.  Think James Perse minus the expensive price tag.  Currently available for $7 (originally $19.50) HERE in 7 colors.  I copped one in black, but I'm probably gonna order one in white, too.  For your reference, I went with a size medium - I prefer loose fits.  I usually wear xs/s, so I recommend sizing up!


Blumoss Swimwear

A while back, I teamed up with +BLUMOSS Swimwear, NYC on SS to raffle away a fab swimsuit!  I don't know if y'all remember?  Anywho, I thought I'd model their fab mesh panel balconette for you guys today.  Available in four other colors HERE.  FYI: the top's reinforced with underwire support so this piece is a fab for those blessed with curves.  The mesh adds serious sex appeal, and one has the option of going strapless *pumps fist*
A closer look at my new necklace courtesy of Bikini Luxe.  This dainty piece is plated in 14K gold - the pineapple lies flat and adds just the right amount of sparkle.  Clicky here to cop one yourself.  Pricing: $33 with free shipping!

Aero from Head to Toe-ish

Soooo my post title pretty much says it all.  I'm wearing +Aeropostale from head to toe....ish, haha.  "Ish" because my bag and shoes are from Deb, but as you guys know, Deb's gone out of business *sniffles* so we'll just pretend I'm Aero from head to toe since that sounds better, haha.
Love, love, LOVE my new fuzzy cardi to pieces.  Talk about cozy!   This zip-up seriously feels like heaven.  The chunky knit material feels like a fashionable snuggie, HA! Unfortunately, the color I'm wearing is sold out, but it's still available in cream HERE.
My look sans cardi!  Recognize this skirt?  I hope you do cause I featured it as a find-of-the-day HERE a while back.  Currently on sale HERE for $16.80.  What a BARGAIN!  
A closer look at my shirt!  I freakin' love graphic tees.  Isn't this one adorable?  Take lots of pics and remember to say cheese! *grins* Check out Aero STAT for cute and affordable tops.  Clicky here to get your browse on...

Find of the Day: The Pleated Skirt ($28)

Totes excited to tell you guys about today's FOTD - an ADORABLE checkered skirt with pleats.  This fab piece transitions beautifully from Winter to Spring.  It's SO freakin' cute and comfy.  As a bonus, it elongates your legs like WHOA because of the high-waistline.  Trust me - this piece is mad flattering.  I suggest copping this item STAT. 

Here's some additional info for y'all: length 17". made of 99% polyester and 1% spandex.  On the shorter side - no worries though.  Throw on opaque black tights, and you're good to go  Available HERE at +Aeropostale for $28.
I feel like Aero has a bad reputation.  Trust me when I say they've upped their game. Bethany Mota's line is really cute, and they're putting out some great clothing.  Give 'em a shot! You'll be pleasantly surprised *smiles*

Summer to Fall

Super stoked to show y'all how well my Others Follow summer dress transitions into Fall.  Yeah, the weather's getting cooler, but that doesn't mean you have to retire all your warm-weather garb.  At least not yet!
Because it's still pretty warm out, I styled my dress with a moto jacket.  I got it last year at Aero. Love, love, LOVE their outerwear.  I've mentioned this several times before already, but they've really stepped up their game. They carry A LOT of cool clothing now!
TIP:  replace wedges with tall boots and thrown on tights/knee-high socks for more warmth.

Bohemian Like Me

Ermergerd, I'm obsessed with my new aztec-patterned shorts.  I found them on Bohemian Like Me for $30, and I can't get over how adorable (AND comfy) they are.  Hashtag winning!  
On a random note, I realllllly wanted to wear my fun floppy hat for today's post.  I bought it years ago when the Saks Fifth in Pittsburgh was closing - they had a massive sale that day *sigh* such mixed feelings, ha.  Anywho, long story short, it was an expensive accessory that I got for a fraction of the price.  I think I paid like $20 for it?
Because my hat made such a statement all on its lonesome, I threw on a simple gray top from Aero to balance out the look.  There are several different colors available online, so if you're looking for a comfy/affordable shirt to buy, scroll down below - only $15!

The Dreamcatcher

Time for a casual look, YAYZORS.  For today's post, I styled a fun yet comfy outfit for a chill day with frands.  Isn't it amazing how shoes and sunnies can transform an entire look? I mean, I know I'm biased - this is my blog and all (ha) - but the half-tint sunnies and strappy sandals really make a difference.  If you're looking for cute affordable sunnies, make sure to check out Sunglass Warehouse. They have awesome picks for sweet prices.  What are you waiting for? Go check them out!
MY SHIRT HAS MINI-HEARTS ON THEM!  I had to use caps.  How else would I convey my excitement?  When I saw this tee, I legit flipped out. Well done, The Girl That Loves, well done ::slow clap:: Make sure to pick one up for yourself HERE...
A close up of my temporary dreamcatcher tattoo.  I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Tattoo For a Week and I'm obsessed!  I've always wanted a tat, but the whole "you-have-it-until-you-die" kept me from getting one, haha.  I'll definitely be sporting different ones for fun from now on.  I'm not gonna lie.  I felt like a total BAMF sporting this around!

Summer Lovin'

Alright, it's throwback time ya'll.  I was screwin' around on my computer last night and discovered TWO photo shoots I totally forgot about! No worries though cause I've decided to share them with you guys anyways, hardy har har.  I mean, this outfit could easily be winterized - just throw on a warm winter coat, black tights and BAM, you're good to go.
Sigh, I miss my waves.  I got my hair chemically straightened a couple weeks ago, but unfortunately my hairdresser messed up - it's like half-wavy and half-straight.  I was super pissed because I paid a butt-load of money to get it done. Plus, I had to spend time straightening it every morning. Anywho, I was worried that my hair would get damaged by the heat so I eventually stopped messing with it, and it actually doesn't look terrible. It's very natural.  I think I actually like it.  Sexy bedhead FTW.  
My super super fierce spiky necklace!  LOVE the edge it brings to the table.  I totally feel like I can whoop some ass when I wear this piece.

How-to: Style a Moto Jacket

For today's post, I've featured a trendy look showcasing pieces courtesy of Deb, Aeropostale, & Roxx.  I actually had a lot of fun throwing this look together.  Ya'll know how much I love experimenting with new color/print combinations.   
I'm totally diggin' the oxblood + animal print pairing.  To unify the color scheme, I threw on a fun statement necklace courtesy of Roxx. It really ties the whole outfit together.
Animal print can be tacky, but this skirt (courtesy of Deb) is SO tasteful.  I highly recommend it, especially if you like skirts. I have to be honest with you guys.  I've been living in skirts because I've put on a bit of weight.  I've been really stressed out with work and school, so I haven't been able to keep up with my workout regimen.  Skater skirts are super forgiving AND comfortable - they flatter your body in the best possible way!  I like wearing high-waisted versions to accentuate the small of my waist.  Clicky HERE to purchase...
This moto jacket - courtesy of Aeropostale - is the newest addition to my wardrobe.  I'm a huge fan of moto jackets, so when I came across this oxblood number I just couldn't pass it up.

I'm loving my new blazer courtesy of Aeropostale.  It's been years since I've stepped foot into an Aero store to be honest.  I've always associated it with middle/high school students for some reason.  
It's safe to say that I was wrong.  There were actually plenty of chic & versatile options available.  I chose to review this piece because I thought it'd transition beautifully into Fall. Plus, ya'll know how I feel about blazers - one can never have enough!  If you're interested in purchasing this piece, clicky here.  FYI: It's also available in black.
So... this is me pretending to hail a cab.  HAHA!  I officially have a newfound respect for models because posing is freakin' HARD! At least my new necklace looks purdy.  If you guys are LOVING this necklace as much as I am, ya'll are in luck because Wild Butterfly Boutique has agreed to give one lucky reader a piece of their choice!
