Sky High Boots

As I look forward to fall style, one piece that I have my eye on is knee high boots. I used to only wear ankle booties, but these high rise pairs are back in a big way and I love it! Of course Isabel Marant has stolen my heart with another amazing design (the Cleave boots), but there are a lot of affordable options out there this coming fall! Here are some ways I'd style my favorite black pair. Let me know if you like the idea, or if you're going to stick with your ankle boots. xx Flo

Sailor Stripes

Today's outfit is all about this amazing scarf I recently got! For the price I assumed it would be a one-time-wear, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I love it soo much and it's definitely going to be a must have for me this year. I'm also wearing my Zimmerman sandals which are the first pair of designer shoes (unless my pink uggs in 6th grade counted #shoutout). They're great to transition from day to night because they have the wooden casual element to them, but also the height for going out. Hope you enjoy the photos! xx

Investment Piece pt. 1: R&G Floppy Hat

As a college student, it has always been a big priority of mine to make sure my clothes last! Impulse buying gets even the best of us sometimes, but it ends up being worth it to hold on to your money. The famous Vivienne Westwood once said, "Buy less, choose well, make it last". This is probably one of the greatest secrets to keeping a good bank balance, and having an awesome wardrobe! A piece that I love which fits this criteria is the Rag&Bone floppy hat. If you follow me almost anywhere I'm sure you know how awful my obsession with it is! I've been thinking about investing in one, so here are some ways to wear it. Even if you don't want to splurge on a designer fedora, definitely consider having one in your wardrobe. They can be worn in any season, at any time. Hope you like these outfits! xx Flo

July Lust List!

Untitled #13604

This month I've found myself really attracted to pieces that are simple with a little bit of a bohemian influence. I love how this Mango jacket can be worn to a formal event, but still has frayed details.. it is always really important for me to stay true to my style no matter where I'm going! Sadly I missed the Isabel Marant for H&M train, but I hope I can find some way to get my hands on this top from that collection! I'm always thinking ahead, and it would be great under a coat with jeans and boots for the fall. Another style I've been loving this month is maxi skirts / dresses. Last year Topshop put out a bunch of sheer pieces with amazing prints and I'm still lusting over them! As you can tell from looking at all my favorites together, I haven't been into bright colors.. I think navy in the summertime still embraces the season, just in a different way. Hope you liked this, and let me know what you're coveting this month! xx Flo

Stripe Sitch

Today the weather gods gave us a humidity break! I love summer days when everyone is out having fun instead of sitting in front of a fan trying to stay alive. The cool breezes allowed for me to wear one of my favorite spring uniforms; the tee + trouser + sneaker combination! Lately one piece I have been fascinated by is the "perfect tee".. much like the "perfect black boot", it probably doesn't really exist. However, I have been on the hunt for it and I have to say: this forever 21 pocket tee comes pretty close! Hope you like my stripe-y uniform xx Flo

Ode to Isabel

Untitled #13452

When I first became interested in the fashion world, I was preoccupied with street style and blogs. Designers and runway shows always seemed intimidating and too unattainable. Isabel Marant was one of the first designers I was introduced to through some of my favorite models, and her designs have remained at the top of my list for years. Her style is so wearable and elegant, and she is one of the few designers who can keep their pieces out there for years without them looking dated.

Here are some ways I've styled my favorite IM items, hope you like my take on them! xx Flo

Heeeellloo everyone! Today I went for the "all black" look, which is surprisingly easy to pull off in the summer. I love these ASOS jeans so much, I have a feeling they'll be my go-to for a long time. To make this outfit a little more appropriate for the daytime I wore my new favorites; Birkenstocks (shock shock horror horror). Don't hate! haaa anyway, thanks for reading and let me know what you think of this outfit! xx Flo

Love them or hate them, Birkenstocks are one of the biggest trends right now! I don't really get all the flack against them, but everyone always has a unique opinion.
