Say YES to clogs

Oh how I love me some leather clogs… Let me tell you why— First, they’re actually way comfy. I was kinda nervous, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised! It’s safe to say these babies from Seaside Soles will serve me well this spring. Second, they’re casual enough to wear on an everyday basis, but cool enough to wear on the weekend too. Woohoo! And third, well these Free People clogs bring the funk back into your life. So come on, join in! Partake in keeping the 70’s alive! It’s a flash from the past, but with a twist! I’ve paired them here with a light pink bandana and my cord pinafore dress to keep the retro vibes alive. I know I’ll be enjoying my clog-filled bohemian spring! Check out my other look with Seaside Soles here 🙂 Have a great rest of your week! xoxo, Karlee Shop: Clogs (exact)     Thanks to Seaside Soles for sponsoring this post.

All Gray Everything

It’s been a stressful week at work, so I’m glad that it’s almost the weekend! I’m also pumped that it finally stopped raining so that I can bring out all of my suede + leather faves… I love a leather bucket bag because it’s perfect both functionally and for style. This one from Dagne & Dover has really great compartments inside which is seriously a luxury. All of their bags are really function, designed specifically for girls on the go. I love this one because of the fun geometric pattern on the lower half. It’s a nice special touch! As for this gray suede piece of heaven, it’s from ILY Couture– One of my favorite boutiques. They have really cute graphics all of the time. I own this pullover and these comfy joggers. I’d been eyeing this jacket for a while, so when I saw that ILY had it I knew I needed to get one for myself. I just love the silhouette. It’s such a better shape AND quality than any other suede jackets …

Seasonal Stripes & Metallics

It’s been an exhausting day people. It’s like the never ending Tuesday… But I’ve been excited to talk about a few spring trends that are super easy to accomplish👌🏼 When thinking of spring trends, light pastels and florals always come to mind– That’s a given. But this season, I’m especially loving the all things stripes trend and all of the metallic options. Statement stripes, banker stripes, seaside stripes… You name it, it’s happening. And metallics? They’re everywhere! Metallic skirts, tops and shoes (my personal fave). I’ve put together a very casual toned down version of any sort of lavish trend. I wanted to showcase a super easy Saturday look with stripes + metallics that’s totally doable! I went a little nautical by adding in the red ascot. These baby scarves… I can’t get enough! I also have to mention that these heels are super comfy. Definitely easy to walk in for extended periods of time (if you need to). And I treat gold as a neutral, so it’s hard to find something that they don’t go with! …

5 Ways to Achieve a Dreamy (and affordable) Guest Bedroom

Having trouble putting together your guest bedroom? Fear not! I have 5 tips to ensure your guest bed is killer! 1. It should be a peaceful space. Neutrals are great for guest bedrooms because they’re naturally calming. Veer away from overwhelming colors as not to give your guests a headache. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have color, just use colors as accents, not your main source. Simple curtains and duvet covers are not only great solid pieces, but they’re generally less expensive than ornately detailed pieces.     2. Keep things cozy. Give your guest some blankets. Even if they don’t end up using them, as a guest it’s nice to feel like you have what you need and avoid any awkwardness in asking. Try a blanket basket. It’s cute annnd functional.     3. Try mixing a few different styles of decor. When you utilize more than one style, your guests are more likely to feel at home. When your guest room is too modern it can feel cold and uninviting. If it’s …

Suede Meets Sandals

The weather has been a little up and down lately and I’m sick of it at this point. Anybody feel me? I feel like every time I look out the window like yeeeah it’s going to be sunny and warm today, I step outside and it’s COLD. Bleh. We’ve had a few actual warm days, but the weather has mostly been a tease. But that won’t stop me from wearing sandals! My hope is that by wearing them, I’ll send all the good warm weather vibes my way. Right?! 😉 Lately my sandals of choice are these blue suede beauties from Sofft. They are incredibly comfy. Heaven knows I’ll be wearing them way too often this season! I even have two similar styles from last summer (yes, I love them that much). They’re great because they pair well with athleisure and a girl has got to have her leggings! I just can’t even wait for summer. I daydream of being poolside somewhere tropical… Anyway, definitely check out the Mira Sandal from Sofft. The quality honestly can’t be …
