I CAN’T believe July 4th is nearly upon us! Where has time gone?! And what on earth do you wear?!

Today, I decided to share some outfit inspiration for your upcoming day, courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton.

Whether headed to the beach all day or a friend’s party, this cute getup is a great way to be patriotic without being literal. You can also wear each piece separately in a variety of ways.

Wear this ultra-feminine Tibi top with lightweight cotton shorts or colored skinnys. Note, it runs big. Good news – you can bring it in to your local Saks Fifth Avenue to have it taken in. Alterations are free!

I could sleep in these jeans. Seriously. They are SO comfortable!

_MG_3638_Edit

Keep it casual with a simple white tank, rolled up jeans and sandals or be bold with a blue and white striped top for the 4th. Don’t be afraid to experiment with color blocking, too. Just be sure to pick two different tones and add something to break it up, like a long necklace or clutch.

In my previous post, “Thrill of the Hunt,” I shared three looks on clearance from Marshalls. Today, I’m sharing the next two!

_MG_8595_Edit

_MG_8656_Edit (1)

I found this pink peplum top on clearance for $20, normally priced at $64. It’s Kate Spade Saturday and adorable.

_MG_8662_Edit

From brunch to happy hour, this look is SO perfect for the summer.

_MG_8637_Edit

I must admit, I bought this top one size too big because it was such a steal. I spent a bit more to have it taken in. Was it worth it? I think so! It fits perfectly now.

Pair a peplum top with high-waisted shorts to balance out the look or with pencil skirt to dress it up. These shorts were purchased online via ASOS and are still available.

These Hudson bell-bottom jeans were purchased for $64, originally priced at $199. I’ve worn them a million times already!

_MG_8545_Edit

_MG_8589_Edit

This top is similar to one of my all-time favorite outfits here. It’s made by the same designer, Ronny Kobo. Originally $150, this top was purchased for $34!

Happy Thursday everyone!

I was recently challenged to shop at Marshalls for clearance items and put together a couple looks for the summer.

Challenge accepted.

This was a pretty easy task for me because I love combing through sales and clearance racks for items that are too small (I’m petite) or for designer goodies. If it’s designer, I buy it (regardless of the size) and have it tailored.

** Trust me, it’s worth the extra $ to have it taken in – especially if it’s a good quality item. Plus, it will look great on your body because it’s tailored to fit you – exactly how you want it to!

_MG_8061_Edit

_MG_8047_Edit

I may or may not have shrieked in excitement when I spotted this pair of Hudson bell-bottom jeans, regularly priced at $199 for $64.

_MG_8032_Edit

I paired them with a boho blouse, regularly priced at $78 for $29.

For my next look, I took these shorts (priced at $10) and paired them with a baby blue crop top from Forever 21.

_MG_8167_Edit

_MG_8234_Edit

I love how these Elie Tahari sandals, regularly priced at $56 for $28, compliment this fresh look.

This look was one of my favorites. I found this dress in “The Cube” section for $12 and despite it being a little big, thought it looked great with nude sandals and a simple bag.

I recently discovered this Los Angeles-based brand, Bella Dahl, while shopping in the contemporary department at Saks Fifth Avenue in Boca Raton a couple of weeks ago. Known for their ultra-soft essentials that pull influences from the laid-back, So-Cal lifestyle, Bella Dahl has become one of my latest faves. <3

Each and every item is hand-dyed, using only the best materials.

_MG_4676_Edit

_MG_4951_Edit

_MG_4847_Edit

Wear the hi-lo tank with a pair of white distressed jeans or with black shorts and heels. The bottoms can be worn with a white tee to the beach or with a pair of wedges and lightweight jacket to an outdoor dinner.

_MG_4893_Edit

_MG_4695_Edit

_MG_4708_Edit

A pair of good, versatile sandals is a real must-have this summer. You might want to consider investing in a couple of pairs: one nude and the other gladiator style. Both will come in handy this season and if you’re in Florida like me, carry you throughout the rest of the year! :-p

Last weekend, I escaped West Palm Beach to go to my friends wedding at The Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. Just 90 minutes south of Miami, Islamorada is one of my absolute favorite places to visit in the beautiful Florida Keys.

_MG_4369_Edit

Every part of their wedding weekend was impeccable. From the tropical scenery to the close-knit group of friends that came to the stunning backdrop of the beach for the reception, it was truly an unforgettable weekend! Congrats Sarah and Terry! <3

I literally had no idea what I was going to wear the day before leaving. Thankfully,

Saks Fifth Avenue in Boca Raton outfitted me with this amazing Elizabeth and James ‘Fit & Flare’ striped dress. I loved wearing it because it’s so playful and chic yet, classic and preppy.

_MG_4477_Edit

_MG_4640_Edit

So far, Saks.com is the only place you can order this dress 40% off so be sure to take advantage of this sale and order it before it’s sold out!!

I paired this dress with my favorite cork clutch and go-to Steve Madden sandals.

_MG_4404_Edit

Who doesn’t love a pair of glamorous oversized sunnies? This pair was purchased at Marshalls, but you can find similar styles online. Scroll up or down to check them out.

Hey guys! I was traveling last week for work and for a wedding in The Keys so I’m a bit behind on the blog. Sorry about that – I promise this week will be better! Here’s my latest look… <3

_MG_3719_Edit

_MG_3735_Edit

Originally, I purchased this cork clutch from Francesca’s Collection about a year ago and for the longest time, could not find it online. Recently, I stumbled upon this cool website, called Shoptiques, where small boutiques can list their products online and by chance, FOUND IT on there!

_MG_3731_Edit

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with these tortoise shell sunnies from Marshalls. Thank you Joanna (@topknotjo) for the hook up! <3

_MG_3756_Edit

The ruffles on the hem of this electric pink crop top from Rebecca Minkoff give it a girly feel. Wear yours with anything from dark washed skinnies, as pictured above, or with a high-waisted skirt.

_MG_3950_Edit

_MG_3966_Edit

Premium denim line, AG Jeans, makes the BEST jeans that are worth the splurge because you’ll have them forever. This pair lengthens your legs and has a chic high rise fit in a dark wash. Team yours with a cute crop top or with a simple worn in white tee.

Tip: Petite’s look great in anything and everything high-waisted! Not only does it help draw the attention up, but it gives the illusion of long, lean legs. It’s my little secret!

_MG_3766_Edit

_MG_3720_Edit

I recently went to my friend Sarah’s wedding in The Key’s this weekend and so many of my girlfriends were wearing these Steve Madden heels because they go with EVERYTHING and make your legs look so great. I have them in nude, white and black and plan to buy another pair in light blue or pink this summer.
