Pleated Skirts For All Seasons

To tell you the truth, I first wore this skirt (from Zara) for my college graduation with an awesome crop top to match. At the time, it felt like a risky decision to opt for a skirt and top combo instead of a super cute dress for graduation, but who wants to wear what everyone else is wearing?

It’s stayed a staple in my closet ever since and I’m happy to share other pleated skirts on a budget for ya’ll.

Happy to answer your shopping questions and continue following me on Insta if you don’t already.

PLEATED SKIRT INSPIRATION (not what I’m wearing)


Love a Good White Top

Need I say more? I know a good white top when I see one.

Love a Good White Top from Struggling Hipster Style Blog on a BudgetAnd this summer, I’ve had them on repeat. Whether it’s a casual day that turns into happy hour or out on the beach, I have a white top (also white linen) for everything. So I’m sharing with you guys some of my must-haves when it comes to white tops. They all just so happen to be from the same store – Brandy Melville. I know what you’re thinking – how can I pull off a store that’s one size fits all? But if you look close enough, you’ll be able to find your best basics at this store. Hence why all my best basic white tops are from here and I wouldn’t pick them from anywhere else.

Psst, they also make you look super tan and that doesn’t hurt 😉

Hope you enjoy!

White Linent Night Inspiration

August 1, 2017

It’s my first White Linen Night EVER. Even after living in New Orleans for four years, I actually never had the chance to attend this event. It would normally fall in the middle of my family vacation. So, this year makes it extra special as it’s my first year “adulting” in my hometown.

I know it will be dreadfully hot, but wanted to share some white linen night dress inspiration including this little Nordstrom number.


This exact JOA dress is soldout, but if you’re looking to buy JOA dresses, know that they do run big. I purchase XS in this brand. In the meantime, I’ve included some white linen night inspiration below and don’t worry these dresses all come in white. Could be good for all those engaged gals out there 😉

Exact Sandals are Rebels Dia in Taupe (size 7 for me) | Link here
