Blogging Hiatus + Style Inspiration

I knoooooow I've been on a major hiatus, but please hear me out for I do have my reasons. First, after my last blog post which was on July 4, I had to get down and dirty with studying, I was struggling with my Psychology class, and just received my final grade, a B-, yaaay me!!! Secondly, a short time after for the first time ever my family and I went to Los Angeles, California and had such an amazing time, and you can take a glimpse of what my trip was like here. Last but definitely not least, I was considering whether or not I should merge my personal blog with The Fashion Expressway, but finally considered to keep the two separate.  Maybe down the road I would reconsider and merge the blogs, but as of right now they're better off going their separate ways.

 Soooo with that being said, here's a little bit of style inspiration to jump start your week, you should never get tired of mixing prints, they're so fun!

Summer Craze: Shoe Wishlist

This Summer it's all about switching up, and although I'm still wearing my go-to boots that I scored last year from JCP, I think it's time I switch up a little. So this season I'm aiming for different styles and prints to carry me out until the Fall.
Wishlist



I love these Supra's only because I know for a fact I could get some wear out of these, you can pair these babies with anything and still look good with such a popping print!

The American flag tennis shoes from American Apparel can be worn year-round, so why not throw them on the list!

These Modcloth open-cut boots are definitely on the TOP of my list, I wear boots like every other day. And although they are sold out in my size, you better believe when they restock I'm snagging me a pair!

And while the Jimmy Choo heels may be out of my price range, I can definitely find a pair of black and gold heels that are similar in style.

What's on your Wishlist this Summer? Shoes? Jewelry? Clothes?

Still Lusting: Graphic Tees X Prints and Kimonos

I can LITERALLY write about graphic tees, prints, and kimonos all day. While graphic tees incorporate a fun and exciting touch to your look, kimonos draw out a more bohemian look. Which one are you a fan of?

Feeling a little adventurous? Check out these looks I've created for a little inspiration.


Graphic Tees x Tropical Prints Continued
Into kimonos? Look at these beauties I discovered, styling these babies require no effort at all, and I really mean NO effort! Throw on a pair of jean shorts, a cute tank, a pair of boots or heels (I'm more of a boot-type gal), your kimono, and you're good to go!
KImono Lovers!!!!!!

What are you obsessing over this Summer? Are you a fan of kimonos? Own any?

Yes to Tropical Prints

It's no surprise that incorporating tropical prints in your wardrobe is the next big thing now and days.  Tropical prints oozes excitement, it screams Summer, and with so many vibrant colors on one print, who wouldn't be drawn towards it?
 
So when American Apparel posted a few pictures of  new items that will be arriving in their stores, I knew I had to join in on the tropic fun!
 
 
Here are some of my pins from Pinterest account that will serve as great inspiration if you're in need of a little style inspiration.
 


 
 
If these outfits are a little too simple for your taste (because they are for me), incorporating a graphic tee and a brighter tropical printed garment would definitely get the job done!

Have you joined in on the tropic fun? Which look are you loving?

Styling: Black Kimono + Bleached Shorts & A Red Lip

Earthy, boho-chic, and effortless, when it come to wearing kimonos there's pretty much nothing to it. I like to style my kimonos with a crop top or a simple tank (not shown) to allow the kimono to be the focal point of the look. For accessories, stick with the same vibe that your kimono elicits and pair it with earthy tone accessories for a cohesive look.

More Lemons Anyone? Kate-Spade Inspired

Ever since I blogged about Kate Spade's lemon-inspired collection, it's safe to say that I've been extra obsessed with lemons. Over the past week, I have purchased lemon printed fabrics and I'm also starting to add yellow hues to my wardrobe (the obsession is real).

But if you've been bit by the Kate Spade bug as well, here are a few lemon printed pieces from various Etsy shops and stores you'll probably fall in love with.

May's Wishlist: Lazy Oaf Dresses + UO Men's Vintage Inspired Tank

It's definitely been a while since I did a Wish List, but now it seems as if I have no choice ever since I came across these babies below.

UO WANT LIST
The top left is Lazy Oaf's Make Me Blush Dress, and the bottom dress is Lazy Oaf's Garfield Pharaoh Enough Dress, both dresses are definitely speaking to me right, and with the fact that they are a little shapeless and relaxed are definitely right up my alley!

The Tropicalia's men's tank-- I will be adding to my Summer's List. Although it's a men's shirt, I prefer wearing a men's tank over anything else, especially considering the fact that they are long enough to cover my big behind, and I think the prints just look better. 

What's on your Wish List this month? Have you been eyeing anything lately?
