Spotted: Summer’s Hottest Print

Hello hello!

I hope you’re all having a great week! We’ve been having great weather all week here in New Jersey and I think it’s safe to say summer is finally here!

With the warm weather finally being here, I wanted to talk about my absolute favorite print trend for summer, polka dots! I love how effortlessly chic they look on just about anything. There are sooo many great polka dot pieces out right now and I have to restrain myself from buying them all! I love mixing and matching different sizes of polka dots like with the set I’m wearing here. I wore this for a day in Asbury Park and it was so comfy and perfect!

Gingham Set

Hello hello! I wanted to share this ADORABLE gingham set with you guys! It’s under $30 and is so perfect for a day down by the beach! I love the vintage vibe of the whole look.

We spent the day in Asbury Park and came across this super adorable crepe stand. I mean how cute is the pink neon sign!? Happy Wednesday!! Xx

Question and Answer

On today’s post, I’ll be answering some of the FAQ’s I’m always getting, thank you to everyone who submitted a question!!

Q: “How do you do your hair!? It’s always perfect!”

A: First of all, thank you for saying that cause ya girl spends a lot of time on her hair! Seriously tho you should see some of my bad hair days, yikes. My hair used to be naturally curly and now it has more of just a wave to it. After I wash my hair I blow dry it with a dry bar hair dryer and then curl it with a t3 micro wand. That’s pretty much it! With shorter hair it’s definitely not as complicated/time consuming to curl it. Would you guys want to see a full hair post/tutorial? Let me know!!

Q: “Did you always want to be a blogger? If not what did you used to want to be?”

A: I actually did not always want to be a blogger, I didn’t have that revelation until about 2 years ago. Before I started blogging I was in college, then working a retail job and I honestly hated it. Retail can be a great job for some people but it just really wasn’t for me.

Q: “What inspired you to start your blog?”

A: While I was trying to figure out what I should be doing with my life, all I knew was that I loved fashion, pictures, anything aesthetically pleasing and writing. I had been thinking about starting a blog for months before I actually did it. I met my friend Lauren at my old job who is a part time photographer and still takes my pictures most of the time! I felt like meeting was some sort of sign that the universe was telling me to just jump into it already, and here I am!

Q: “Favorite foundation? Do you ever use tinted moisturizer?”

A: I use tinted moisturizer for everyday and foundation for events or taking blog pictures. I use Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue as my tinted moisturizer and bare minerals foundation.

Q: Have you always lived in New Jersey? And how old are you?

A: Yes, born and raised! Im 24.

Q: Best advice for someone wanting to start a blog?

A: My number one thing to say would be to just do it! No one really knows exactly what they’re doing when they first start, but everyone starts from somewhere! Practice makes perfect and you learn as you go along.

Go-to Summer Outfit

Dress | Heels | Bag | Necklace | Sunglasses

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been a “dress girl”. I’d choose to wear a dress over almost anything else, shorts, jeans, skirts- they’re just such an easy go-to outfit! Most of the time in the summer you’ll find me wearing a dress with any kind of shoe. Heels, flat sandals, wedges or even sneakers. What’s your go to outfit in the summer? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fun Cinco de Mayo weekend! This aztec tank was so perfect for a Cinco de Mayo vibe, and will be great for the rest of summer.

The Perfect Summer Midi Dress

It’s Fridaaaaay guys!! I hope you guys had a great week! I’ve had my eye on this Free People dress for a while now and finally purchased it and I’m so glad I did! It comes in a few different colors and the fabric is super lightweight making it perfect for summer. You can style this dress with heels, sandals or sneakers as seen here. After walking around the boardwalk for a while, we went to Coney Waffle. They have the craziest milkshakes and ice cream!

How to Style Overalls for Summer

One styling question I am always asked is, “how do you wear overalls?”. Overalls are one of my favorite pieces because they can be worn year round and styled according to season. For spring/summer, I picked up these overalls for under $80. I love the boyfriend fit of them and the distressing making them cool and casual. For warmer weather I love to pair them with an off the shoulder crop top, but you can really wear almost any top with them! A plain tee, blouse or even a graphic tee will also do. Throw on a pair of sneakers or espadrilles and you’re set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday in Soho

Hello and happy Sunday!

This weekend was beautiful in NYC, the perfect spring weather! Which we desperately needed here on the east coast, it’s been so cold still.

I took a trip into the city with my best friend Olivia since it was such a nice day. We started off at a pop up event at Blank Studio. This place is seriously so cool, you gotta check it out!

After we went to the event we went to lunch at Galli in SoHo and it was SO cute!! Not to mention the food was amazing. We continued to wander around soho soaking in the sunshine and beautiful weather!

About the outfit:

My top is by a brand that’s new to me called Petersyn. They make the cutest tops and skirts for spring!! Here are my favorites:
