OOTD | Blushing Maxi Skirt

Happy Monday, friends!

It's officially the last week of summer and I am struggling to break out all the summer dresses and skirts that I've accumulated this season before it ends. #thestruggleisreal. True life of a shopaholic. I'm still finding stuff in my closet with the tags on them!

Moving on to the real reason for today's post. I wanted to share with you all a recent outfit that I wore to work last week, featuring this gorgeous blush maxi skirt from Francesca's. I am in love with the beautiful floral design and I am head over heels for anything blush-toned.  It's super comfy and you can simply throw it on with a solid top, as I did below!

OOTD | Flower Power

Happy Monday, loves!

Maxi dresses are one of my favorite pieces to sport during the summer, because they can make you look put together in an instant.  Whether your maxi is a solid single hue or powerfully printed (like the one I'm wearing below), you won't have to do too much accessorizing to look amazing.  I love this maxi from Francesca's.  It has a unique floral pattern and the designs in the center look like beautiful mandalas.

Summer is coming to a close!  What are some fall fashion trends you're looking forward to?

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

SUMMERTIME STRIPES | My Go-To Pieces

Comfort food-- your go-to, familiar food of choice that makes you feel good when you're not feeling like stepping outside of your comfort zone.  I believe that "comfort clothes" exists in the same way.  Comfort clothes are the pieces that make you feel comfortable. They're the things you wear on days when you have no idea what to put on.  For me, monochrome striped tops are one of my comfort pieces.  It's easy to pair with any bottom, like jeans or black leggings.  It's also basic enough to pair with a bold piece, like a tulle skirt or floral trousers.  I think most people can agree with me that stripes are a classic and a staple in anyone's closet. They have always been in style and always will be in the future. It's a timeless trend.
