Grecian Inspired Dress


Shelli Segal Maxi Dress: Marshalls
BCBG Wedges: Marshalls
Bracelets: Tjmaxx/Charlotte Russe/Etsy









I have been eyeing this dress for awhile and thought it would go so well with my gold wedges. This Shelli Segal maxi is perfect for Spring because it's a breezy material and will keep me cool on hot days. The cinched waist and slits in the arm keep the dress from looking too boxy and add a feminine touch. Did you notice my delicate gold bow ring and lovely chain & gimp bracelet?! Cupcakesforbfast from Etsy was so kind enough to send over this beautiful set for one lucky reader to win!

Animal Print Pants


Blazer: Nordstrom
Tank: Forever 21
Animal Print Jeans: Thrifted ($3!)

Meow! How fun are these pants?! I found them at a thrift store in the North Bay; it was a small little shop and they happened to be having a half off sale the day I went. I scored these pants for only $3 and I didn't need to do any alterations. Yes!
I have a giveaway coming this week that I can't wait to share with you all. Hope your week is amazing!

Blue Mosaic Equipment Blouse


Chiffon Equipement Blouse: Marshalls ($32!)
Paige Capris: Marshalls
Sandals: Marshalls ($22!)
Bracelet: c/o Oia Jules / Target









I was browsing the clearance rack at the local Marshalls when I discovered this gorgeous chiffon mosaic Equipment blouse for only $32! Not too shabby, especially because the retail price is over $200. If this doesn't prove that you can dress in designer items for a fraction of the cost- I don't know what will! I found these pretty blue sandals during the same trip; doesn't it just seem like the blouse and heels were made for each other?! 
Have you found any great deals lately? I'd love to hear about them :)

Thank you for reading!

Chain Accent Heels



Dress: Marshalls
DVF Pumps: Plato's Closet ($30!)
Bracelets: Forever 21/Macys










I wasn't sure about this dress at first but when I paired it with these pumps- I fell in love. There was something about the contrast between the bright print and feminine shoulders on the dress, mixed with the chain accent and sleek look of the pumps, that really made this outfit a new favorite of mine! The back of the dress also has a lovely zipper detailing and adds a little extra style to the dress.

Jeweled Sandals



Paige Capris: Loehmanns ($27!)
Jeweled Sandals: Target
Button Blouse: Marshalls
Bracelets: Target/Macys






Tuesdays are my long days so I opted for a comfortable school outfit: soft breezy blouse, neutral Paige capris, and some leather jeweled sandals. I prefer to wear flats when I'm trekking around campus and these added a little glam to my outfit. Hope you're enjoying your week :)

Thank you for reading!
