Summer Sheers

{Tank- Brandy Melville, Skirt- American Apparel, Belt- H&M, Bracelets- Nordstroms & LF, Sunnies- Ray Ban}

Saturday was just one of those days where I felt like wearing layered pieces of jewelry and something feminine but edgy. And since I've finally acquired the perfect slip, it was only right to wear this sheer Brandy Melville tank with a similarly sheer American Apparel maxi skirt. Is everyone still into maxis? How are you guys wearing them? Thanks for reading!

Shore Thing

{Bathing Suit- Victoria Secret, Shorts- H&M, Belt- J Crew, Neon Bag- Forever 21, Sunglasses- Ralph Lauren, Nails- OPI's Pink Friday}
I had to do it- a beach/summer post. It's been a whirlwind since I moved back home to NJ, and now that it's halfway through August, it feels like the summer is slipping away! Regardless, I was so so so excited to spend this past weekend at my parent's shore house. I'm a minimalist at the beach, usually packing more bathing suits than outfits. You would think this makes packing easy. And it would've- if I had remembered to pack my favorite American Eagle denim shorts while in San Francisco. Instead, my trusty shorts are (hopefully!) somewhere between the Coasts in a long distance moving truck. I panicked when I couldn't find them, realizing that my usual crop top & denim short duo wasn't a reality. Once again, I was forced to get creative, and ended up loving the look of these high-waisted, silky, H&M shorts with a plain black bathing suit and a pop of neon from this Forever 21 tote bag. 

As far as my makeup/skin care routine- I find myself reaching for the same products every summer. Here's a quick update with my current favorites- some old and some new...(1) Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion SPF 30 (2) Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sun Block SPF 45  (3)  Sun In Hair Lightener (4) Dove Extra Hold Hair Spray (5) Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (6) Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Black Ebony (7) Mac Saunter Lip Pencil (8) Estee Lauder's SPF 15 Lip Conditioner (9) Mac Ravishing Lipstick

Hope you guys are making the most of the rest of your summers! Thanks for reading!

Work Wear

{Top- J Crew, Jeans- J Crew, Pumps- Ralph Lauren, Necklace- H&M, Bag- Long Champ, Sunnies- Ray Ban Wayfarers}
Hi! I thought I'd do a quick post as proof that yes, I am still alive. The move back to the East coast was less stressful than expected, but between starting my new role at work, the commute, and my cousins wedding (maybe I'll share pics from that next!), I've been keeping quite busy! 

This is literally the perfect example of my 'overslept and have five minutes to get ready for work' outfit. I rely heavily on a mix of J Crew basics and various statement jewelry for these kinds of outfits. I fell in love with the fit of this shirt and ordered two more on the J Crew website when it went on sale (it is $15 right now and comes in fun colors!). I'd also been hunting for a chain necklace for a couple months now, and found the perfect one at H&M a couple weeks ago. I have to resist the urge to wear it with every single outfit. 

Oh, and see below for fun picture of me stuffing my face with fro yo. New location, same addiction. 

Hopefully I'll be posting more regularly now that my routine is a little back to normal. Thanks for reading and being patient with me! :)
