If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good skirt or dress with a high slit. Who doesn’t love showing a little leg and playing homage to Angelina Jolie’s infamous Oscars 2012 red carpet moment? For those of you that don’t know what I’m referencing – you should – but HERE is photo evidence.
Anyway, that’s why I love love love the skirt I’m pictured in above – it’s super comfortable, a bit sexy and perfect for summer. You can shop my entire look below:

My shirt may read “1990,” but I was actually born in 91′. However, I needed to snag this shirt because I felt like it represented the 90s as a whole, and I especially loved that it labeled me as a millennial.
The truth is, I’m really proud to be a part of my generation. Sometimes as I’m sitting around having deep and meaningful conversations with my friends about life, I realize how far we’ve come from past generations. We talk with an openness that has been shunned in years past. We discuss everything including how the processed food we’re putting into our bodies is effecting our long-term health – to growing up in a time where we all have friends of diverse backgrounds – to our ambitions and life goals.
Mostly every friend I know has a side passion or “hustle,” where they explore their creativity and chase the dream of becoming an entrepreneur. And for that, I’m truly proud to be among some of the very people that are going to change this world. Are you proud to be a part of your generation? Sounds off below in the comments.
The summer is always the busiest part of my year, but this summer especially has been really jam packed. For starters, I generally travel on the weekends, so that leaves me to do two full-time jobs during my work week including my PR job and my blog. As such, I’m often working 12 hours days, then living out of a suitcase on the weekends. As you can imagine, things are busy-as-can-be and with that comes a lot of expenses. This is where *cheap* online shopping comes into play.
For me, there are clothing/accessory items worth splurging on and items worth saving on. Summer is the time for saving. Invest in staple items like blazers and jeans during the winter. Summery outfits are often trendy (they’re generally not in style the next season) and easily mimic-able (is that even a word)? For example, a shirt you can pay $250 for at Bloomingdales can most likely be found online for $15.
Like me, I know my followers love a steal, so I’ve included some of my favorite AND affordable summer fashions below.
Who doesn’t love being a lil’ patriotic now and then? This Fourth of July, show everyone just how much you love ‘merica by donning your best striped ensemble. Check out my look above for a little inspiration! While the outfit I’m wearing sold out almost immediately, I’ve linked to some others from the same site below. There’s some really similar looks, so if you’re interested, be sure to snag them before these too fly off the shelves. Oh and I almost forgot to mention – everything is well under $100! You know I love ballin’ on a budget.
Also, you may have noticed the adorbs clutch I’m holding. You can shop the exact one OR some cheaper options below as well.
I can’t get enough of two-piece sets for the summer, so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you. The one I’m pictured in is pretty pricey, but if you’re feeling like splurging, you can shop it below! OR if you’re balling on a budget (like I am 99% of the time), then shop some very affordable sets below, ranging from $14-$30 for both pieces. What a steal!
