A new favorite dress, in basic black and under $100! This ASOS swing dress is becoming a fast favorite in my closet. With it’s high-low hemline providing extra coverage over the tush area, and the waist slimming middle line, I love it. One word of caution are the somewhat slim sleeves. I’m wearing a size 10 here and the arms could stand to be a tiny bit wider.

Have a great start to your week!

6 Shore Road Cover Up

Admittedly, I scooped up this cover up during a Cusp sale after spotting it on Julia during her Cabo trip. I’m headed to Belize with my best girlfriend in July and thought it would be the perfect piece for lounging on crystal-sand beaches. I planned to save it for a few months but couldn’t resist throwing it on over some nude slips for a quick stroll around the neighborhood on a particularly hot day. I absolutely love the bold print and the unique shape. Not typically one to buy oversized items, I think it’s flattering in a unique way.

The geometric print that rises in a deep V in the center of my body draws the eye inward, while the uneven hem keeps it youthful.

Fun fact about this lace slip: it was my grandmothers, and it’s Dior. She purchased it in the late 50’s and passed it down to be a few years ago. I wear it rarely to preserve it as best as possible, but absolutely love it’s delicate detail peaking out from this modern dress.

Absolutely can’t wait for Belize in July and am continuing the purchasing process. Anything you think I can’t do without?

Alexander McQueen Zip Around Tote

Alexander McQueen Tote Bag

Well, i’ve added another member to the Purse Family. He’s a gorgeous McQueen zip around tote and i’m in love. I made this impulse purchase to celebrate quite a few things in life: a new apartment, new job, a┬ábirthday. Generally just to welcome this new chapter in my life. I’ve never done something like this for myself before, honestly. Purchased something spur of the moment. Every major purchase has been coldly calculated, saved for, and thought through. But to be completely transparent, it felt amazing to be able to do this for myself. And I couldn’t be happier.

Review: Gap Curvy Skinny Jeans

Apologies for my absence, my loves! Last Sunday I celebrated my 24th birthday, and not shortly after I got incredibly sick. I’m still recovering hence today’s short post, but I hope to be back on my game next week.

I wanted to hop on and do a quick review of the first of a few jeans i’ve recently discovered and become obsessed with. These are Gap’s Curvy Skinny jeans and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the fit and quality. After selling quite a few pairs on Poshmark, I was in need of some good denim. I searched through designer brands and fast fashion, trying on everything in my path. It wasn’t until I revisited Gap that I found something that worked.

These jeans have a higher rise and a tapered waist, with extra give in the hip and thigh area. They narrow to a skinny leg but can still be worn unpegged as shown here. I have their classic dark wash and kept with my usual size, though they have stretched to just about 1/2 size up through a few wears.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Thursday!
