I'll keep this short and sweet and straight to the point. Here were some of my favorite looks from last night's VMA show brought to you by: Iggy Azalea, Erin Wasson, Ciara, Allison Williams, Holland Roden, Iggy Azalea (yes...again), Shailene Woodley, Lady Gaga *The Fame Throwback*, Lady Gaga, the picture perfect Selena Gomez, oh and Lady Gaga again.

And my not-so favorites brought to you by Katy Purry, Chanel West Coast, and Lil Kim (Sorry mama!).


Sweaters, booties, and bag (shown in video) from Zara.
Dress and matching shorts from Brandy Melville.

Just a quick haul of the things I picked up in Boston yesterday with Kay! Enjoy!

Laying at the beach or hanging out by the pool is a summer must. There are so many beach/summer trends that can keep your water side look fresh enough that you'll want to wear them all day. Don't be afraid to express your personal style by the water. This summer take your beachy ways further than the sand so that you can stretch out that summer look all day long, especially for lunch after a long day of soaking in the sun.
Beach look one

Wildfox Couture / Topshop swim suit / River Island , $24 / Dorothy Perkins / Adia Kibur gold jewelry / Karen Walker

ALL BLACK ERR'THANG. Black and gold is a trend that I can't get off my mind on or off of the beach. This simple yet retro black bikini is so classic and sexy. I can't think of anything better to throw over it than an oversized summer words graphic by Wildfox. The perfect way to top off this chic waterside look is chunky tortoise shell shades (like these classic Karen Walker's), a pair of studded jelly sandals, and chunky gold CHAINNNNN *in 2 Chainz voice*. Just add a top knot - and done.

Beach look four

White dress, $30 / Hot Anatomy bandeau top, $97 / River Island brown shoes, $60 / Linda Farrow Luxe round glasses / Cult Gaia daisy headband

This boho look is perfect for a free spirit! Throw this flower crown over your salt water waves and layer this crotchet dress over your fringe bikini for a look that can go further than the beach. Don't forget some brown sunnies and Minnetonka fringe sandals!

beach look three

Filles A Papa neon one piece swimsuit, $240 / Accessorize sparkle flip flops / Dimepiece adjustable hat / Short sleeve t shirt

Bring out your inner bad girl with an edgy fun beach look. This graphic one piece is a bit of a splurge but you can find great graphic swimsuits at Black Milk Clothing and at Miss Guided. A black mesh t-shirt is the perfect cover up and this leopard print five panel hat by Dimepiece can tame that beachy mane and keep your nose from getting burnt.

Beach look two

Pieces low back cocktail dress, $32 / Topshop high waisted bathing suit / Colors Of California bow sandals, $41 / Stretch headband / Heart sunglasses

Nothing says fun and flirty like a retro two-piece, heart shaped sunnies, and a printed fashion turband. A low back jersey dress and some jelly sandals keep this look fresh enough to leave the sand and explore the land.


I haven't blogged in way too long. I guess I have gotten really caught up in enjoying the summer and my boyfriend finally being home. I thought I'd do an outfit spam of some of my looks this past month just to catch you all up on what I have been wearing! I am going to try my best to start updating religiously again - I need to! Enjoy!

Fashion Survey
1. How would you describe your style? A mix of girly looks with edgy pieces or edgy looks with girly pieces.
2. What are your top three favorite stores? As of late Zara, ASOS, and Nasty Gal.
3. What is your least favorite store? It would be hard for me to pin point a "least" favorite store. There are lots of places I don't shop at.
4. What is considered "trendy" in your area? There are TONS of trends right now. I think the most popular trends in my area right now are just the basic summer trends: cropped tops, high waisted shorts/skirts, leather, muscle tees, wavy hair, braids, crotchet, etc.
5. Who is your style icon? It's so hard for me to choose a style icon because my style and other's styles are constantly changing but as of late I've been loving: Rihanna, Iggy, J Law, Rachel Bilson, blogger Madame derosa, and Kourtney and Kim Kardashian.
6. What is the most you have ever spent on an article of clothing? The most I've ever spent on an article of clothing I think was probably $350 boots.
7. What is your favorite article of clothing? Right now my favorite items in my wadrobe are probably my leather jackets and my new Zara skort (I have yet to wear).
8. Do you match your shoes to your outfit? I make sure they match/look good with my outfit yes, but I don't color coordinate/over match.

Beauty Survey
1. Do you wear makeup regularly? Yes.
2. What are your top three beauty brands? MAC, Nars and Benefit.
3. What is your least favorite beauty brand? I tend to stay away from Covergirl.
4. Do you have a signature makeup look? Yup: it's a flawless foundation face, heavy on the blush, winged eyeliner, and a bold lipstick.
5. Do you have a favorite lip gloss? I cant remember the last time I wore lip gloss.
6. How many beauty products do you think you own? I have no idea honestly.
7. Do you put a lot of products in your hair? Barely. If I use anything in my hair as of late it's products out of the John Frieda Luxurious Volume line.  
8. How long does it take you to do your makeup and hair? If I have to shower/blow dry my hair, all together it takes any hour.
9. What is your biggest makeup pet peeve? On myself? When I can't get a flawless foundation application or my brush hairs get all over my face. On other? Bad eyeliner, over shaded brows and blotchy foundation/bronzer.
10. What is your favorite perfume? Daisy by Marc Jacobs and Fame by Lady Gaga


PS. I TAG my fellow bloggers! If you do the survey send me the link to your post!
