Blood Red Summer | Featuring Zaful

Sweets and Hearts fashion style: outfit featuring Zaful red dress, Boohoo white sandals, thrifted Isaac Mizrahi crossbody bag

I love the ease and simplicity of a shift dress during the summer. I chose a vintage-inspired shift dress from Zaful and loved the white contrast trim. The dropwaist and pleats were really cute too. It definitely has a 1960's mod tennis outfit feel, which is so playful and youthful. I paired it with my chunky white sandals and a thrifted leather crossbody bag.

Zaful has a huge selection of all kinds of styles ranging from casual to dressy, retro to trendy, and everything in-between. They're extremely affordable, too. Don't forget to check out their site!

Brown Sugar | with Anna Sui for Target & Sperry Top-Sider

Sweets and Hearts style & fashion: outfit featuring Forever 21 bow blouse, Anna Sui Target tweed skirt, vintage quilted chain crossbody bag, Sperry Top Sider patent oxfords

I usually check out Refinery 29 for street style looks or Style for runway inspiration, then interpret the trends I like in my own way. A couple of my favorite summer fashion trends are the warm tones and academic looks reminiscent of the 70's (think v-neck sweaters and suede a-line skirts). Classic pieces like oxfords (I found mine in like-new condition from Goodwill!) and a tweed skirt can still feel fresh when paired with modern styling and silhouettes. Luckily, a lot of these trends are carrying into the next season. Expect to see a lot of deep browns, suede, and tie neck blouses this fall.

For this outfit, I wanted to reference the 70's without being too obvious, so I paired a cream short sleeve bow blouse (it's made from a breathable rayon woven--perfect for the heat right now!) with a patterned tweed skirt in shades of orange and mustard. My black patent leather oxfords and vintage quilted crossbody bag were the perfect complements, their details intricate without being overpowering. I made sure to keep my makeup simple and neutral as well, with a black cat-eye and beige lipstick.

Wonderful Distraction | with Fleet Collection & ASOS

Sweets and Hearts fashion and style: outfit featuring ASOS nude bow blouse, Fleet Collection gray plaid skirt, vintage croc satchel, vintage red pumps, Kate Spade bow ring



Since I've been thrifting a lot on the weekends lately, I've been able to find both classic and fun statement pieces that I can incorporate into my regular wardrobe. It's amazing how a pair of simple red heels and a croc embossed satchel can still be worn today and not look out of place or dated.

I wore a nude bow blouse and a gray plaid skirt by Fleet Collection. Unfortunately, Fleet Collection closed recently, but one of the original co-founders just started a new vintage-inspired clothing line called Apricity. I love the classic feminine silhouettes and gorgeous fabrics. I already have my eye on the Sunday Dress--I'm just having trouble deciding on a color.
