White Summer Dress

Dress are all I want to wear this summer. It’s just too hot to wear anything else. I’m passed my booty shorts days and jeans just trap in the heat ha… I always forget how when summer time rolls around, I’m just trying to survive. Just walking around outside makes me feel like I’m going to pass out, hence my strong need for something breezy to wear. I especially love this lightweight dress from Maude for its embroidered eyelet detail. The cinched bell sleeves are a fun addition too! There are a lot of trends going on right now, and although I love all the fun, it’s also nice to have a classic more neutral dress. I’ve paired this dress with a pair of my favorite clogs, which by the way if you haven’t snagged some clogs yet for this season, you need to! This dress is on mega sale so it’s a great time to snag it! I also at this point own several matte gold earrings and I looove them. These ones from Maude …

Your new favorite bag

Ahh yes. The magical combo of suede and leather. Does it get any better? I’ve had to explain several times to Jono that when I talk about leather and when I talk about suede, I’m talking about two different things. A few months back there was a suede jacket that I had been yearning for and when I showed him he replied “You already have a leather jacket”. No, no, no. This is SUEDE. Sure, they both come from a cow (or a fake cow 😉 ) But they are NOT the same thing. He still doesn’t get it, ha. Anyway… About this particular beauty— I love this bag from Hieleven because the materials are super good quality and it’s a fabulous neutral. It’s easy to pair with literally every outfit. I don’t change by bag too often, so I like a neutral color that I can stick with for a while. I have another bag from Hieleven that I also adore. You can find all of the deets here. I hope that you have …

Citrus + Stripes

Are you ready to be a water goddess this summer? Release your inner Ariel and find that faaaab swimsuit! To be honest, I have a love-hate relationship with swimsuit shopping. There are a lot of styles that I love, but that don’t look quite right with my proportions… It can be difficult to find a suit that has the right coverage without looking like a grandma. No disrespect to grandmas still rockin’ swimsuits. I applaud you! Anyway, I’ve found that this suit from Albion is a returning favorite style. I actually have this same style in a different print from last year… Yes. I love it that much! I really like high waisted bottoms (IF they are the right cut) because they can be super flattering. If they’re the wrong cut, it can be a mess. Another reason why I love Albion– The fit of their items is stellar. My best advice would be to make sure that your swimsuit is right for you! Here are a few of my favorites from Albion in other …

Periwinkle Blue

I love the colors of spring. Whether soft and subtle, or bright and energetic, spring is a fun time of year to mix things up. For me, having more pieces in my wardrobe that flow easy and have a looser fit work the best for the sunny seasons. I just get too hoot and sweaty if I have tight fit clothing come spring and summer. That’s why I love this periwinkle blue dress from Ruthie Grace. The dress doesn’t have much structure, so it’s really breezy, nice and loose. The color is also perfect for spring and I feel like it really looks great on any skin tone. I’ve paired the dress here with a simple moto jacket and some white leather mules. It would also look great with some metallic sandals and a denim jacket. It’s so basic that it’s so easy to style! What are your favorite colors for spring? I’d love to see how you style them 🙂 I hope that you had a fabulous weekend! Definitely check out Ruthie Grace for some …

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! …

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 …

Slip Dress Layering

I’m sure you’ve seen it everywhere at this point, but I am LOVING the slip dress layering trend. I’ve never been a person who has felt all that comfortable in a tank (I just can’t get past the side-boob) sooo layering up is really the perfect option for me. If you’re a layering gal, you’re going to like this post 😉 Here are my top 5 reasons why you should try slip dress layering: The combinations are virtually endless. Pair your dress with solids, prints, short sleeve, long sleeve, you name it! Same dress, different layering combo! This trend transitions well from season to season. The layering doesn’t have to stop at what’s under your dress. Throw on a killer leather moto jacket for fall, or a denim jacket for spring. Bada bing bada boom. It pushes your style creativity. You’re bound to find a combo with what you already have in your closet. Have some fun with this trend. No rules allowed 😉 Have a killer dress that’s too low to wear by itself? Layer …
