"Paradise City"

IMG_2313 A few posts ago I talked about layering, and I found that I am playing with it again today! I wore this outfit yesterday, and layered this very oversized tee over a feminine lace skirt. This layering was perfect for me because this skirt tends to ride up in the front meaning I am constantly pulling it down. The longer shirt keeps it down so I am more worry free, and I also like how it looks like the lace is coming from the tee!

Case of the Neons

IMG_1823 What better way to spice up a gloomy Monday morning than some pops of neon? Lately I have been drawn to neon to brighten up my spring looks. I talked about this beanie in my April Favorites video and I've never found a beanie that fits my head so well! It has the perfect amount of slouch and stays on all day. I thought the beanie was the perfect match for this DIY necklace I whipped up a couple weeks ago. I really like how the orange tones match and then contrast the neutral colors.

OOTD_90: "Tough And Girly"

DSC_0932 Today's #coasttocoastchallenge was "Tough and Girly." Since a feminine yet edgy look is basically my every day style, I decided to go all out by contrasting some of my most edgy pieces with this very girly floral dress.

A big part of the making this outfit "tough" is the fit of this vest. The oversized piece really tones down the flowy dress to make it a little more casual. I also wouldn't normally pair two studded pieces together, but I really like how all of the silver accents are picking up in this look.

PRESS_Steve Madden Magazine

DSC_0114 I am so excited to finally share this on the blog! A couple months back, I was notified on my Instagram that one of my photos had been chosen to be featured in Steve Madden Magazine, and I received my copy today! Since I wear Steve Madden shoes on a regular basis, I started using the hashtag #maddabout it whenever I was wearing SM shoes in my photos. My photo was featured on the opening page of their holiday issue. Thank you so much to the ladies over at SMMag!
