Want to get more wear out of your favorite maxi skirt? Wear it as a strapless dress! I belted it around my waist and pulled the extra fabric until I got my desired hem length and blouson effect. I actually love the piece so much more as a dress! Do you think you will try this?

Top c/o Karen Kane | Pants | Shoes (similar, wedge)
Necklace, Bracelets from Shelby's Closet

Happy Monday, fashionistas! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was spent studying and listing a bunch of items on eBay. My summer has been spent working as a nanny and a medical assistant, so my wardrobe pretty much consists of running shorts, tshirts and scrubs right now. I miss getting dressed for work! This outfit is not super elaborate, but it allows me to be fashion-forward while still being modest. I am totally in love with the longer sleeve length of this Karen Kane top, and the tunic-length hem of the shirt. Add my favorite pair of pixie pants and a leopard pump, and the look is pulled together without being too fussy!

On a separate note, I get asked quite often if I sell items from my closet. The answer is "YES"! I finally took some time to list items on eBay this weekend, and there are TONS of great pieces to choose from. Check out my closet cleanout sale HERE. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Top c/o Karen Kane | Jeans (similar) | Scarf (similar) | Sunnies (similar)
Watch | Wedges (similar) | Lily & Laura Bracelets c/o 9th & Elm

This date night look is all about the details. The canvas of black and white might not be that innovative or interesting, but the punch of coral and these beautiful beaded Lily & Laura bracelets take the outfit to a new level. I found my bracelets at 9th & Elm, a site that showcases a collection of handmade and independent designers. I had a really hard time choosing from all of the beautiful options, but these bracelets are sure to get a lot of mileage in my wardrobe! They have even been worn with my scrubs for a little workday flair :). Head over to 9th & Elm and let me know if you find anything special for yourself!

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!

Dress c/o eShakti | Jacket (similar) | Clutch c/o Bluetique
Bracelets (similar)

If there is one thing I think all women can agree on, it's that it is hard to find clothing items that fit your exact body shape. Clothes and standard sizes are not always the right option for many women. eShakti is an online boutique that amends this problem! They offer hundreds of styles of tops, bottoms, and dresses that are totally customizable. You can choose every detail from your neckline, sleeve length, hem length, and whether or not add pockets. I am totally in love with my eShakti piece because of the special details such as the flower appliques and pockets, and the fact that it is perfectly proportioned to my body! Not to mention, the quality is exceptional and customer service was a dream to work with! And if you think "custom" means "expensive", be prepared to be surprised when you see how affordable their items are. Be sure to check out their site and let me know what you have fallen in love with!

As always, thanks for reading! Don't forget to enter the White Plum giveaway here!

Black & Yellow

We are halfway through our week, fashionistas! This Karen Kane shirt is sure to get a lot of mileage in my wardrobe. Black and white stripes are such an essential part of my closet, and I love the punch of yellow with them (surprise, surprise ;)). Another item getting a lot of wear lately is this monogram necklace from Love Always Couture. It's the first acrylic monogram that I've ever had, and I assure you there will be more in the future once my name changes. Be sure to check out the rest of LAC's line of wish list is currently about 20 items deep!

When I was in college, I worked at a boutique in my hometown and was introduced to many unique brands of women's clothing, one of which was Karen Kane. The brand quickly became one of my favorites, for a variety of reasons. The quality is unparalleled, the shapes are classic, and the pieces mix well across seasons and collections. I still have many KK pieces from my days at the boutique, and they have held up beautifully - 6 years and counting! I'm thrilled to be collaborating with a brand I whole-heartedly believe in, and can't wait to show you more of the amazing pieces that they produce! Be sure to check out their summer lines here. I'd love to hear what your favorites are!

Thanks so much for reading! I hope your week starts off fabulously!
