This week I wanted to try and tackle the sporty casual that would be perfect for a date at the park or even a family picnic. Start things off with a classic khaki short that can be found at American Eagle paired with a basic t-shirt from J. Crew. Hold up those shorts with a navy blue canvas belt from Rag&Bone while tossing on a pair of Zara canvas sneakers. And top it off with a baseball cap from Goorin Brothers.
Sometimes I’m in the mood that makes me want to get up and get active. This song definitely does that pretty well. I use it as one of the songs on my kick boxing playlist. Its awesome! and it really helps to get your blood pumping. So whenever you feel like its time for you to get up and get active give Deja Vu a listen for a little inspiration.
I know its been awhile since I’ve held one accessory above them all but its back. I’ve found something that I for some reason just can’t live without and I feel like you all may agree The perfect pair of summer wedges! I found them perusing the DSW website. Audrey Brooke Wanda Wedge Sandal would be the perfect wedge for summer. It comes in a neutral color which will go with practically everything; not to mention it has a fun textured element on the upper material of the shoe. Making this shoe great for multiple occasions.

This week I was a little indie and inspired by all of the music festivals that have happened or are happening. So I decided to piece together a great festival outfit for upcoming festivals or to hold on to for next year.
To start this festival look off I found this gorgeous coral dress with lace overlays and a asymmetrical hem line that can be found at Mod Cloth. Keep the rest of the outfit simple so that not one element over powers another. The jewelry is very basic a turquoise and silver pendant and textured silver ring; both can be found at H&M. The cute heeled buckled bootie can also be found at Mod Cloth, and of course you every festival inspired outfit needs a cross body satchel to carry all of your essentials.The pictured is the, “Bourbon Street Fabric Freddie” Kate Spade bag.
Ok so my latest pop culture obsession is Of Monsters and Men. This group was recently on Saturday Night Live and will be playing a concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia,MD on June 11th. I just really enjoy their sound and how their style seems to compliment the music. So the next time your in an alternative/indie rock mood check out Of Monsters and Men.
This week I’ve put together business look. The suit pants and shirt can be found at H&M. The smashing accessories(watch,shoes,belt) are from Urban Outfitters. The tie can be found at American Eagle and the Montana fedora can be found at Goorin Brothers.
As many know(and now you do too) my favorite flower is a sunflower. They are big and yellow and filled with happiness just like this yellow dress. Pair it with those fabulous strapy aztec print wedges and you’ve got yourself one sunflower inspired outfit.
The dress is H&M, the aztec print wedges are by Jessica Simpson and can be found at LuLu’s. The triangle earrings can also be found at LuLu’s. The necklace is from Anthropologie and the ‘Off We Go’ clutch is Kate Spade.
I’ve always loved Saturday Night Live; the crazy skits, the guest stars, the hosts monologues and of course the musical guests. This past Saturday one of my favorite comedic actors was hosting, Zach Galifianakis. Galifianakis is currently most known for the Hangover movies, Due Date and one of my personal favorites The Campaign.
The skits on SNL this past weekend were amazing as always; touching on the latest news stories and general fun. Some of them even included cast members from the Hangover series, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms.
Wrapping it all up was Of Monster and Men performing some of their hits from their latest album My Head is an Animal. So whenever your in the mood for some laughs check out SNL and I’m sure you’ll get some.

Every time I start to run errands this song come on the radio and I can’t help but to crank it up just a little. So I finally decided to download the song and it turns out it is not only a great driving song but also an awesome running song. This one might be on my summer playlist this year.
Nothing says casual and comfortable quite like slim straight khakis. To keep this look fun and airy I’ve paired it with a cotton/linen blend shirt from H&M and a belt from Gap to add a pop of color. Really tie this comfy look together slip into some boat shoes by Penguin and top it all off with with an everyday Goorin fedora.
