It’s almost officially summer, which means there’s going to be A LOT of two pieces all over the place. HOWEVER, I’m really feelin a different kind of “two-piece” lately. Behold; the matching set!
TOBI MATCHING SET || COSMO HEELS (similar) || BELLA UNO JEWELRY CHOKER (not available yet!) || ROMAN & SUNSTONE PEARL NECKLACE || CHANEL BAG & SHADES (similar)
One of my favorite FAVORITE things about this outfit is that you can easily dress it up for a classy look a la the classic strappy heels and pearl necklace as seen above, or amp up the sex appeal with just the change of a few key accessories. I will be wearing it both ways this summer, I can promise you that!
Out of everything I picked out on the Tobi website, this was my favorite outfit. (Remember the tuxedo dress and jumpsuit?) I will say the pants are a little tight in the upper thigh area, but the rest fit well. If you’re feeling pretty badass this would be an excellent look to wear to a work event. Maybe not the office, but an after hours event? Go for it! ;]
In keeping with the theme this year, I’m showing another risqué little number on the blog today! I’ve been all about the tuxedo dress trend, and add the backless, plunging neckline to it… pure perfection!

Alright I’ll say it first…. I should probably invest in an iron. Mama Mia.. ha! Don’t worry I actually own one.. and when I wear this dress out for reals I will fo’ sho’ make sure it gets ironed. That’s what happens when you order something online, and it arrives in a bag, and you just can’t wait to wear it. But I mean, look at it… can you blame me?
My favorite thing about this dress is the suspender detail on the back! For some reason I just love that strap. I can’t wait to wear this little number this summer. I really just have to find somewhere to wear it now… help! Side note! I’m thinking about selling a few (a lot!) of my things, including these shoes shown above. I just never wear them anymore, and I think they would make someone else very happy. :] If you, or anyone you know, wants some thangs, let me know!
Last year I declared I would dabble more in the world of plunging necklines and I have held true to my word. I mean… I have never relied on boob tape so much in my life, but it’s worth it! Actually my boyfriend’s mom put boob tape in the Easter basket she gave me…she must know about my style resolutions, haha! (yes, I got an Easter basket from my boyfriend’s mother, be jealous).

What I really love about this jumpsuit, aside from ya know… everything… is the color. I don’t own a whole lot of olive green items, but I’m starting to add some to my wardrobe and I love how this one can kind of be worn as a neutral, which makes it easy to pair with different accessories. I went with kind of a nude look overall here, with the heels, bag, and jewelry.
I picked out this jumpsuit as an option to wear to my best friend’s wedding next month. I kind of wanted to try something other than the typical dress… HOWEVER… It requires a bit toooooooooo much boob tape and I just don’t trust it to stay in place if I’m dancing a lot all night, LOL. So this jumpsuit may be more of a date night kind of outfit, ya know?

Disclaimer: my blog is about to OD on florals. I don’t know what it is because I am not usually one for the flirty, feminine print… but I can’t get enough of them this year! Maybe it has to do with my mood? When you’re a happier person you want to wear happier things… right? ;]

Remember a couple posts back when I was telling you guys about these Forever21 tank top bodysuits and how I bought them in 4 different colors… one of which was pure white and one (this one) that’s off white? I thought I was crazy at the time because they were SO similar, but it really was smart purchase! The off white color matches this skirt perfectly! A pure white tank would have looked way too bright and white with this outfit. I am pleased! I wore this to work a few weeks ago when we were lucky enough to have a warm day and now that the weather has taken a turn for the better I can wear it all the time!
So! As a few of you may know… or have noticed…. I take most of my pictures in this location. My mom is my photographer (lolz) and honestly, we usually snap pictures REAL quick while she’s at work and has 15 free minutes to take them… so we run downstairs to the alleys by her office and shoot away. WELL, for so many reasons this has become my favorite place to take blog pics over the years, and I’m sad to say I won’t be able to shoot here much longer. As of a few months ago they have started tearing down all of the buildings in the area in order to start re-developing the city. Which, I guess, in the long run is great for the area, but now I’m losing all of my favorite landmarks to blog with. Peep that open window behind me in the last photo… my mom was curious to see what the inside of this abandoned building was like so she literally climbed inside, hah. I don’t think she saw anything very noteworthy.. probably just a lot of empty bottles and such. Ah, but that’s why I love my mom… she’s such an adventurer. ;]
Groundbreaking! Ok, in all honestly I only saw The Devil Wears Prada for the first time this year… so this quote was totally over my head until about 2 months ago, ha. The Devil had a point though… florals for spring may not be groundbreaking, but they sure are beautiful..
H&M DRESS, JACKET, & BOOTIES || REBECCA MINKOFF BAG || RAY-BAN SHADES || WINKY LUX LIPSTICK C/O SOUTH MOON UNDER
I had originally bought this dress to wear to a baby shower last month, however, the day of the shower it was a bone-chilling 20 degrees and windy AF, and I was like there is no way I am wearing this dress in this weather. It was worth the wait, though. I finally got to wear it this past weekend when my boyfriend and I attended an alumni brunch for my sorority up at my old college… shout out to my Deephers. :] It was the most beautiful day, we finally had some warm sunshine after 2 days straight of nothing but rain, and this dress was perfect for the occasion.
Heat Wave from NARS used to be my go-to red lip. It has a slight orange tint to it, so I loved that it wasn’t a true red. However! A few months ago I received this lipstick from the girls at South Moon Under and I really have to say I’m obsessed with it. I can’t stop wearing it. It’s so vibrant, the perfect shade of red, and long lasting! Also I think it’s the exact same shade as this dress… so that’s a plus!
Yesterday was the first day of spring and there is still slushy, dirty, gross piles of snow all over NYC. Yum! It doesn’t feel very springy yet…so I’m trying to be patient, but we have had a couple days here and there the past month where you could get away with bare legs and I took full advantage!

I love this dress because it’s insanely comfortable. I’m all about those t-shirt and sweater style dresses. This one in particular fits like a glove but it doesn’t suffocate me, ya know? What could be better than that? It was supposed to be warm the day I took these pictures… but when you get down by the beach it was FREEZING. Hence the weird faces in half these photos.. I was shivering, haha.
I am HOPING (fingers crossed!) that is is almost time to ditch the pants and jeans and whatever else all together and wear nothing but skirts and dresses on the blog soon. That really puts me in my happy place. Happy spring, guys!
