Dress // Bag // Shoes
Hello Wednesday! I'm back for my little weekend getaway to Chicago and it was SO much fun. Chicago is such a great city, there is so much to do and see and the shopping is THE BEST. Speaking of shopping, I ordered this light sweater dress from ASOS two weeks ago because I love the colors and it's so fantastic. Fits loose but not overly big, the colors are bright and sharp and the fabric is super soft. The perfect piece for cooler spring days {like the ones in Chicago!} and even Fall in Austin with some boots. Paired it here with my Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag. Haven't had much chance to wear it since it's been raining. I did treat it with a protective cream but as we all know, it is always better if we keep leather away from water.

Hope you're having a good week, are you SO looking forward to the holiday weekend? I am!

Talk to you later!

The Circle Bag

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Top // Bottoms // Bag // Sunglasses // Sandals {similar}

Every summer there is that ONE bag that every girl is carrying, usually put out by a big designer and knocked off over and over by lower-end retailers. A couple years ago it was the Mar Y Sol Tote first seen on Olivia Palermo; the knock-offs are still in the market today and selling consistently. This year is the round straw bag. It is really just a variation of the round shape leather bag Mansur Gavriel made popular last Fall and Winter. Clare Vivier then took the idea and made it summer appropriate, next thing you know we are all in love with the lovely shape. I was really looking into the Alice Bag as a birthday gift to myself {I always get myself a good one haha} but went with the Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag instead. Then I was shopping at ZARA and saw this beautiful round bag with pompoms, I had to have it! I paired it here with this lovely little top and bottom set from Aerie, they have the best warm-weather clothes! I love the gauze fabric they incorporate on a lot of their pieces.

I'm heading to a post-birthday weekend getaway today, so excited to get out of town! Hope your week is going great :)

Destroyed Denim Shorts & Eyelet

Friday, May 12, 2017

 Top // Shorts // Sandals // Bag // Necklace 

Finally Friday!!! Am I right?! Its going to be a great one in Austin, sunny and 80 degrees. I feel like Barton Springs Pool is calling my name. I love weekends like this because I get to wear cute summer-like outfits every day. No need to worry about rain or cold; which means I'll be wearing my new Madewell cutoff shorts {The Perfect Jean Short in Langdon Wash} for sure. I saw these drop on the Madewell website early in April and I stalked them everyday until they became available in my size, except they run big. Like REALLY big. I had to size down two sizes, I'm normally a 27 and I had to go down to a 25 on these. I think last time I wore 25-sized bottoms was when I was 10 years old haha. They have a high rise which means you can do crop tops like this eyelet beauty. Sandals are from ZARA and I'm loving the silver color even though I'm normally more of a yellow gold girl. Oh! And don't mind my leg bruises, they are from my car accident back in September 2016 and have not gone away {can you believe that?!}. I will finally have them lasered off at the end of the month, can't wait!

Have a great weekend!
xx, Nicole
