Floral Pep

{ Peplum Top: T. Babaton "Felix" via Aritzia // Floral Jeans: dELiA*s (old, last seen here & similar here) // Flats: ShoeMint (similar) // Bag: Zara // Sunglasses: Roberto Cavalli // Jewelry: H&M necklace; ASOS spike bracelet, cuff from NYC }

Off Duty

{ Leather Jacket: H&M // Top: Urban Outfitters (old) // Tulle Skirt: Ruche (last seen here) // Belt: Wilfred // Booties: ShoeMint // Bag: Badgley Mischka // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Jewelry: OASAP necklace (c/o); HRH Collection Original Ombre bracelet }

This leather jacket was the one piece I had my eye on ever since H&M revealed their New Icons collection. The genuine leather, motorcycle style and zipper details meld into the perfect combination of street style cool to create a look that H&M touts as "model-off-duty." I do admire the styles of models like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Miranda Kerr, so if there's a piece that will emulate their chic off duty style, I'll take it!

Although they make a ton of classic solid-colored styles, iPANEMA Flip-Flops have really become known for their unique, fun-in-the-sun designs.

Hey, Sailor!

The nautical trend is a classic look that's always fresh and in style. You can't go wrong with sailor stripes and crisp shades of red, blue, black and white. This inspiration board has me imagining a summer day lounging on a boat with golden rays of sunshine and the sparkling cerulean sea. Are you ready to sail away?

PS: if you're smitten with the adorable iPANEMA flip flops, be sure to visit the blog next week...I just might be giving away a similar pair ;)

Casual Leopard

{ Leopard Coat: H&M // Tee: from random boutique // Faux Leather Leggings: Wilfred Free "Daria" via Aritzia // Shoes: Converse // Bag: BCBG Max Azria (old) // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban "Wayfarer" // Ring: HRH Collection "Gilded Girl" }
This leopard coat is the newest addition to my wardrobe that I scored on major sale at H&M for only $20. I kind of wish it had faux leather sleeves instead but I can't argue with the price. Anyone that knows me knows I love a great bargain and sharing my finds. So here I am, sharing this steal with you!

For this look I dressed down the leopard print with sneakers, liquid leggings and a graphic tee. Leopard print is surprisingly versatile for casual or dressy outfits, and I really do believe it acts as a great neutral.

How do you wear leopard?

Return of the Skort

{ Denim Jacket: H&M (worn here & here) // Blouse: J. Crew // Skort: Zara // Shoes: BCBGirls (old) // Wallet: Vince Camuto (similar, won from O My Heart!) // Sunglasses: Prada // Jewelry: Forever 21 earrings; DIY bracelet; BCBG Max Azria ring }
I haven't worn a skort (shorts + skirt) since middle school and honestly thought I'd never wear them again. I also felt the same way about leggings but now I can't imagine life without them. So here I am wearing a skort again, which I am completely in love with. Other things making me happy? The fact that my shirt serendipitously matches the magnolia tree in these photos and that today is my birthday! I have the day off and will be spending it with my husband. Not sure what he has planned but I'll find out soon!

{ Jacket: Zara // Sweater: T. Babaton "Bailey" // Jeans: G21 via Walmart // Belt: Old Navy // Shoes: Zara // Bag: Louis Vuitton // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Jewelry: Brooklyn Designs short necklace; Front and Company long necklace; JewelMint ring }
Cut out details in clothing makes for an interesting detail that I adore. This sweater is made all the cuter with the cut out back and silk ribbon ties. And if you follow me on Instagram, you'll recognize these camouflage jeans I posted a few weeks back that I was debating whether or not to keep. As you can see, I decided to keep them. Thanks to everyone who helped me make my decision and have a happy weekend!
