Mayday | featuring Sincerely Sweet Boutique


I just got this lovely skirt from Sincerely Sweet Boutique. I love how the teal peaks out from underneath the cream lace (it has a cute paperbag waist too, but the peplum on my top is covering it). I can't wait to wear it with my loose blouses tucked into the top.

The weather has been absolutely perfect right now, so I've been taking advantage and wearing my Dear Creatures denim jacket with just about everything while I still can. It's the perfect combination of casual and edgy.

Outfit Details:
Cream knit peplum tank (thrifted, Nanette Lepore)
Cream and teal paperbag waist skirt (c/o Sincerely Sweet Boutique)
Denim moto jacket (Dear Creatures)
Nude wedges (c/o Coconuts)
Cream leather crossbody (thrifted, vintage Gianni Bernini)

Have a great day!

Spring Cleaning for a Cause: Earth Day with Schoola

Spring Cleaning for a Cause: Earth Day with Schoola
Spring Cleaning for a Cause: Earth Day with Schoola

I'm so excited to partner with Schoola for Earth Day! I've been doing a lot of spring cleaning the past couple of weeks--combing through the depths of my closet and sorting through unworn and forgotten clothing. Luckily, there are many options for finding new homes for your unused things. I like turning to eco-friendly methods for unwanted goods. If I can't wear or swap something, I always donate it.

Schoola is an online thrift store that sells clothing to benefit schools in the US and the Malala Fund internationally, with 40% of all proceeds benefiting children's education. Everything on their site is donated and they have lots of great brands at fantastic prices.

As you know, I'm big on thrift shopping! It's a great way to reduce waste and keep clothing out of landfills. Here are a few pieces from Schoola's site that I styled (just a small sampling of the cute things you can find on there):

It's really easy to donate! All you have to do is request a donation bag, fill it up with clothing (in excellent condition), and send it in. It's FREE to request one and it already has a pre-paid shipping label attached. I even requested an extra bag to fill up with more donations.

Earth Day is April 22nd, but you can do your part year-round. Make it a point to clean your closet out regularly and find other ways to help out.

Learn more about Schoola or request a donation bag.

Party Like It's Prom | Spring Formal Style with BooHoo

BooHoo Prom 2016 featuring pink tulle midi skirt and Melissa Velia bow belt

It's been quite a few years since I attended my high school prom. In fact, I just received a notice about my upcoming high school reunion! I can hardly believe that much time has already passed. But just because I can't go to prom doesn't mean I can't have fun getting dressed up for other events.

It's spring formal season at BooHoo and they have a great selection of special occasion dresses, accessories, shoes, and more! Any time you go to a special event, be sure to pick something you're excited to wear. Then add a few personal touches and perhaps a statement making piece or two to set you apart from everyone else. Don't be afraid to try something different.

I wanted to pay tribute to prom in some way, so I chose a pink tulle midi skirt and paired it with a black bustier, an amazing black bow faux leather belt by Melissa Velia, gold glitter shoes, a vintage crocodile clutch, and a silver rhinestone hairpiece.
