Simple with a Twist

Tank: American Apparel// Skirt: Mossimo// Clutch: Urban Expressions// Belt: Forever 21

Finally, my platforms are incorporated in an outfit post. These shoes go with every single outfit I wear, why? Because I love to mix and match and I make it so that they can be worn often. I decided to wear them with a lovely lace skirt that I have been meaning to post a picture of because lace is big this summer, especially in a white or cream color. I purchased this skirt a while ago when it wasn't as easy to find, and no, it is not from Forever 21 or H&M. It is from one of my favorite stores that I spend way to much money at when I only go in for one thing, Target! Instead of pairing it with floral prints, this time I went with a plain and simple American Apparel tank. I accessorized with an adorable Urban Expressions clutch, Forever 21 necklace, bangles, and a fun stalagmite ring. 

I decided to keep it short and sweet today. Everyone have a great rest of their day! 


Florals and Lace

It is a new week filled with sun and summer beauty! I am anxious to actually get my summer started LOL but until then I will just dress like I am on vacation and enjoying the summer sun. These photos were taken in a beautiful town located about an hour away from Los Angeles, Claremont, CA. It is known as the city of trees and PhDs, and this area specifically is known as "The Village." The Village is filled with college students, trendy restaurants, and vintage stores. Some of my favorite shops are located here: Speckled Hens, The Grove Vintage, and Glitter. If you are anywhere near this area, you definitely need to check out these shops and the whole village in general!

On to my ensemble, I love this combination of floral print and lace. This lace cropped top is from H&M and the shorts are from Forever 21. Forever 21 has a great selection of shorts and cropped tops that I need to get my hands on for this season! I decided to wear my new adorable platform heels to give this a chic summer look. I was just reading a great blog post/slideshow by Refinery29 discussing summer essentials, and one of them was the "day to night" heel. I do believe that these heels are just that. This clutch is a beautiful color that is not so much bright, but a perfect compliment to the bright summer prints. You can find this clutch here at Speckled Hens in the village or online at Trend Essentials in many different colors.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
