I'm Like a Bird

...Or I just love the feather detailing on the sleeves of this tee.  How great of a find was this from Pink Tartan's sample sale?  As you know I'm usually one to opt for colour but sometimes it's nice to go for the classic black & white combo.  I love how polished they look together.

Crave or Save: Accessories

Left column: Necklace Bag | Shoes - Right column: Necklace | Bag | Shoes

When it comes to accessories would you rather splurge on a designer piece or opt for a less expensive alternative?  Can you guess which accessories are what prices?  For me, I'd love to have the designer piece but unfortunately a student budget doesn't always allow for that.  I am always so happy to find a great option at a lower price.

Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by.

Scalloped Hem

The scalloped hem trend I've been seeing everywhere lately from Instagram to the streets.  But I've had a difficult time finding this trend in stores, until last week.  Last week I stumbled upon these beauties at Costa Blanca.  Not only are the a nice light fabric, which is great for the humid summer days, they were a heck of a bargain at $9.99!! Can you believe it?  There's something about finding a really great deal that makes me SO happy!  What deals have you found lately?

In other news, I'd like to wish my BF, Tyler, a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  I hope this year brings you so much happiness & joy!  Love you babe.

Weekend Wear

Nothing says weekend like the perfect pair of jean shorts.  In the summer I am usually more of a skirt kind of girl but when I stumbled upon these boyfriend style shorts at Gap, I had to have them.  They  are the perfect length, fit and shade for the summer months.

Nautical on Repeat

Hi lovelies! I have been having the most wonderful week enjoying some time off. I also recently had my hair done...hello BLONDE! I'm totally into this lighter shade.  (Yes, I am somewhat of a hair chameleon and I love it.)  Along with all things new and exciting is this J.Crew sweater I've been wearing over and over again.  I love how it's so simple to throw on with coloured denim, a skirt or even over a lace dress.  Pieces like this are so fab for any fashionista on the go.  What do you currently keep reaching for in your closet?

In the Swing of Things

Trying to get settled in this past week after the amazing trip to Nashville was definitely a transition.  That city sure stole my heart.  And is it just me or are the first few days back after a trip always difficult?  As I got settled in to my busy schedule I found myself back to the regular of bright colours & vibrant patterns. As you may already know, I am a big fan of bright colours.  And this outfit is no exception.  Have you been wearing bright colours lately?

Sheer Escape

There is no doubt that sheer is a huge trend right now.  I decided to take on this trend by combining a delicate top with a bold print.  I love this combo.  In fact, oddly enough when I was out shopping while wearing this, I stumbled upon the very same print and sheer combo in skirt and top form at Zara.  What a coincidence!

Country Festival Style

As many of you may know, via my social media, I recently spent the past few days in Nashville  attending CMAfest.  What fun I had!  For a country music fan, it was heaven.  As soon as you walked out of your hotel you were right in all the action that goes from early morning to late night.  Every restaurant, street corner and stage had live music. In the evening everyone headed to the large outdoor venue where the big name country stars played their tunes.  Until now, I had never been to Nashville or such a big festival as this.  Hopefully attending this event can become a yearly tradition!

Along with the country music came a country fashion sense.  I attempted to channel my inner country girl with bigger hair, lots of sparkle and of course denim and lace. Here's my take on country festival style.

With the combo of flamingos and a watery-like skirt, I feel like I should be heading to the beach! Maybe not in these shoes though. I'm so into the combo of skirts and t's right now.  It's so simple but can be so much fun when you combine different prints and accessories.  Also, I'm totally digging this skirt I stumbled upon at the first sample sale I'd ever been to, Pink Tartan's, last week. Being at a sample sale is like digging for treasure.  Such great deals and I had such fun!
