The Everyday Statement Purse

Who says that your everyday purse has to be a solid color or just plain black? Exactly, so my everyday purse I have been wearing has a combination of red, green, and black. It sort of has an Aztec print on the strap that I usually don’t go for, but the style and color of the purse made me fall in love with it. The reason I like the colors so much is probably that they are the Gucci colors and anything that reminds me of them needs to be in my closet immediately.

So with this purse, I paired the classic Air Force Ones, which are a must in everyone’s closet. You can definitely class it up by wearing a dress with them or exactly how I wore it in this look. I also wore these two-tone jeans, inspired by Vetements, from H&M for only $10! I was the happiest girl around when I swiped my card and the cashier gave me the shopping bag. I walked out of the store feeling like I just conquered the world! Don’t you also feel that way when you snagged an amazing deal? Then last but not least, I wore this nude mesh bustier top from the Zara sale with a basic white T-shirt underneath.

I definitely like how this overall look gives off neutral color-blocking vibes (except the purse, obviously.) So I dare you to go out and get an everyday statement purse, or even just a cool strap to add to your existing black purses, even if it’s out of your comfort zone. A majority of the times I try a new style, I end up loving it!

An Easy Way to Layer Maxi Dresses

When summer approaches, you don’t necessarily think of layering, correct? I am also pretty sure a maxi dress doesn’t pop up in your head either. I have a solution for you and  I’m pretty sure you have in your closet, bralettes! There are so many styles to choose from and it’s super easy to wear them under a nice, loose, and breezy maxi.

The perfect way to show off your cute bralette in your floral maxi is by buying one that has a deep neckline; either a deep U or V. It’s a very easy item to put on if you are running late to your job or internship, but you look amazing wearing it. I am all about comfort in fashion.

This Fashionista paired some cute and simple accessories to go with her dress that goes perfectly. You can never go wrong with lace-up sandals, they give the outfit an extra accessory because of the lace-up detail on the ankle. Feel free to get them in many colors as well!

The best thing about a maxi dress is that you can wear it anywhere, you can use it as a beach/pool cover-up, wear it to work, or even just a night out with your girls. Just pair a cute pendant or dainty layering necklace, a nice crossbody, your favorite lip color and you are set, girl!

So remember, layering isn’t just for the fall or winter, you can do it when it’s 90 degrees outside, look stunning, and, most importantly, not die in the heat (isn’t that always the summer goal?)
