Coach Swagger

As if off-the-shoulder tops aren't slowing invading my closet, I stumbled across this special button-up shirt. I've been heavily influenced by the style of my favorite bloggers that I started to lose sight of my own. Wear what feels right. Wearing oversized button up shirts as off-the-shoulder tops are heavily trending on IG right now. And this shirt fits the bill. I love the "collar" that wraps around the neckline and the curved hem on the sides of the top. Do a half tuck to show some curves (and to prove to everyone that you are wearing shorts underneath, oops!) 

How cute is this purse? Cute enough for me to seriously downsize my everyday essentials i.e., cash, cards and lip stick. Something has gotten into me and I'm drawn towards more feminine styles and less influenced by streetwear AKA Rihanna. Loving little purses from circa 1950's that are compact with little handles, as opposed to a strap. It fits everything I need when I'm not in the mood to lug around my backpack, even though I still love the backpack trend. 

Pairing this look with clear heels was a no-brainer. I love how they spruce up the look and elongate the gams. Hope everyone had a productive Monday, and thanks for dropping in!

Shortstop

Most of the time I go to Papaya, I do a quick scan and head for the exit. This time was different.  I left toting a few unique pieces, including this shirt dress. How cute is this baseball tee? At first I thought this dress would be cute for sleepover PJ's (because we all know PJ's aren't this cute when we sleep alone), but it's a great shirt/dress to wear when you're running errands or meeting friends for dinner. 

I paired this with my Blue Force Huaraches. I still get butterflies when I see these sneakers. They have such a cool and rugged construction. I wear these to the gym as well as on-the-go.

It's storming here in California, and I'm loving every bit of it! Don't let the gloomy weather stop you from hitting the gym. Summer is right around the corner :) I actually split my pants while bending down earlier, and it smiled when I heard them tear. This means my hours at the gym are paying off! I'm actually going to the gym as soon as I upload this post. I hope everyone is off to a productive week! Happy Monday, beautiful friends.

Castaway

You know in the movies when a girl spends the night at a guy's place, and she wears his white button-up around the house? This shirt dress reminds me of that, except we all know said button up is more like a worn-in T-shirt. I've seen photos of this dress circulating on Instagram. Then I saw it worn by Bella Hadid and then I had to have it! 

This is my first piece from Faithfull and I am delighted by the quality and weight of the fabric. I love the oversized sleeves, the high-low hem and the rope to accentuate the waist. And Lord knows I'm a sucker for slits! What a chic and playful design

Faithfull makes beachy, resort-ready pieces and many of their designs are quite versatile. This dress would be cute as a cover-up for the beach. I would also wear it with a top knot for a preppy look or throw on stilettos as pictured for a night out.
