I loved how boho the tasseled shirt is, but I wanted to add some color so I wore the shirt with blue and orange shorts. I also wore the outfit with sandals while the summer weather is still here.

The Bachelorette Review and Fashion: Mariachi Me?

http://www.wetpaint.com/2015-06-11-bachelorette-season-11-episode-5-photos/

Top 5

1) Shawn-Shawn is the one to beat at this point. Kaitlyn and Shawn have great chemistry, and we finally got to see why they both gush about each other episode after episode. All season, they’ve had this “love at first sight” storyline, and after their one on one date, I am convinced that they have the strongest connection. He’s been the quiet one for a while, but tonight was his breakthrough. I mean, he said he was falling in love with her! And she said she was too!!! It was like they couldn’t help themselves.

2) Nick V.- Nick did a good job in this episode. He said all the right things when he was being interrogated by Tanner. The guys couldn’t really fault him, except for Josh. Kaitlyn and Nick also have good chemistry, and Kaitlyn is always apologizing on his behalf. Kaitlyn really really likes Nick, but does anyone else think it’s just lust?

3) Jared- Jared always manages to squeeze in some screen time with sweet moments. He’s really grown on me, and he is so genuine. I love how reassuring he is to Kaitlyn. He has surprised me so much this season. If he doesn’t get picked he’d fit the “Marcus” role on Bachelor in Paradise.

4) Ben H.- Ben is a fan favorite, and it is clear why after his two step date. He is genuine, funny and sweet. He could make it pretty far, but if he gets cut at 3 or 4, then he’d be good for The Bachelor. I would love for Kaitlyn to end up with Ben, but we need to see them progress more as a couple in the next few episodes. Also, how cute was it when he said how hard the dance was?

5) Joe- Joe has no shot at winning, but I still always love watching him. At this point, I feel like the four men above are the only ones with real shots. But still, Joe is so charming and funny every episode. I was dying during the Aladdin date last week, and loved his serenade to Kaitlyn.

Fashion: I loved the country themed fashion Kaitlyn wore. The denim shirt dress was super cute with ankle boots. I love how she always manages to put her edgy, laidback style into her outfits. I LOVED the fringe skirt Kaitlyn wore later in the date. It was so gorgeous!

Random Thoughts: 

– Josh had a really bad night. He looked terrible in front of Kaitlyn and the guys, and got the worst haircut. Kaitlyn’s reaction was really funny when she messed up though.

– Ian’s speech to Kaitlyn sounded so rehearsed. I bet he practiced in the mirror.

– I wish Amy could come back to tell Ian that he’s not as great as he thinks he is

– I love Tanner, Ben Z. and Cupcake…but they have no shot with Kaitlyn.

– Whitney, Kaitlyn, and Becca all hung out for Kaitlyn’s birthday. I wonder how Farmer Chris feels.

– I saw Cupcake and Shawn hanging out on Instagram. I always love seeing who’s friends after the show.

– In case you haven’t heard, Kaitlyn accidentally sent a snapchat on Friday of her final pick. I didn’t click on the link so I’m still spoiler free. But if you want to see the picture or video (I’m not sure what she sent), I’m sure you can simply google it.

OOTD 5/4/15

The weather is finally warming up, and it feels good to start wearing shorts.

Kimonos are really in style right now, and I have been loving them. I really wanted a printed one, and thought this was one super pretty especially with the fringe on the bottom. I’m currently into fringe too, so this was was perfect for me.

Floral Printed Kimono from Pac Sun: $32.99 ( Part of a buy one get three free deal)

High Waisted Black Shorts from Marshall’s: $14.99

White Tank from Forever 21: $3.99

Flats by American Eagle: These are really old, and I can’t remember the price.

Sunday Shorts: Lookbook Store

I love finding fashion websites to browse for clothing. The Lookbook Store is amazing with different deals and sales going on right now. I’ll leave the link below for their sale items. For today, I wanted to share some of their selection of shorts because I thought they were whimsical and fun, which is perfect for the summer. This season is all about lace, crocheted patterns, fringe, and prints. Check out the ones below. Below each picture, I left the link to each pair of shorts. I highly recommend using this website. It’s great for ideas, shopping and all things fashion.

Netural Chiffon Shorts
$27.00–  I love that these comfortable shorts can be worn so chic. They’re light, airy and whimiscal for the summer weather. http://www.lookbookstore.co/collections/shorts/products/netural-chiffon-shorts
Apricot Crochet Lace Shorts
$27.00-  These cute crocheted shorts are romantic and fitted. I like that these can be worn with a simple tee and sandals, but you can also dress these up with a tank and blazer. http://www.lookbookstore.co/collections/shorts/products/apricot-crochet-lace-shorts
Pom Pom Ball Fringe Shorts - A
$26.00- These are gorgeous. I really want these shorts. The colors are so summery and the pom pom fringe is  playful and fun. These would be great for brunch or to wear on a vacation. http://www.lookbookstore.co/collections/shorts/products/pom-pom-ball-fringe-shorts-a
Hot Daisy Cutoffs
$23.00-  Denim cutoffs are ideal for casual summer days, and I love the little daisies on an otherwise plain pair of shorts. These would be great to wear for running simple errands, a picnic or a day at the park. http://www.lookbookstore.co/collections/shorts/products/hot-daisy-cutoffs
Foliage Print Shorts
$24.00- I like how tropical these are. These are vacation shorts. They’re meant to be worn on the beach. I think these would be cute with a graphic tee tucked into the shorts. I also like how the length is modest and appropriate for many ages. http://www.lookbookstore.co/collections/shorts/products/foliage-print-shorts

PacSun Buy One, Get Three Free Haul!

At PacSun, there is currently a buy 1, get 3 free sale going on. The priciest item out of my four items below was the dress which was $34.95, so I bought the dress and got the two tops and kimono for free! I thought it was a pretty great deal, especially with the spring selection they had on the racks. I’m not positive if the sale in possible to do online, but it’s going on now in stores.

On my Spring Wish List Post earlier, I said I wanted a kimono and off the shoulder tops, and I got both here at PacSun.  If you liked this post, don’t forget to comment and follow my blog! Have a great day everyone!

I love the print on the kimono. For the spring, I’d wear this with jeans and boots, but I’d also wear the kimono with high-waisted shorts and a tucked in tee during the summer.

I’m really obsessed with the fringe on the bottom.
IMG_4139
I adore this blouse. I really love the cream color and how delicate the lace looks on the end of the shirt. The off the shoulder fit is really pretty for spring.

Spring Wish List

So I’ve decided to make a spring wishlist even though winter seems to linger (especially in Plattsburgh). I found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest, so I decided to share the trends that I think will be popular this season. Also, I left the link of each piece if you want to take a closer look! Hope you like this post and follow me or comment below!

I absolutely love this. /// Fringe Scallop Tee
Fringe Tops: I really love fringe and think it is going to be big during the spring. I bought a similar top to the above photo  the other day. It’s really boho and playful, which is definitely different from my preppy style, but spring will a time for experimenting with more loose fun pieces like this one. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/552605816753638030/
Crimson Tribal Exuma Pants
Tribal Printed Loose Pant: I also love jumpsuits and maxi dresses, but I’m starting to love these flared out pants. I think they’re really easygoing and still fashionable. I would wear these with a cropped white tank top and a long necklace. With the spring weather, I’d even wear a chunky cardigan or long sleeved crop top in case of chillier weather. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/460563499369168872/
blue ombre maxi skirt. This is why I like dresses! Bubble necklace too!!
Bright/ Printed Maxi Skirts: I started wearing maxi dresses for the first time last year and love them now. I have yet to try wearing a maxi skirt, but I think they look really pretty with tank tops and chunky cropped sweaters. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/551339179358254032/
Boho/Gypsy...Handknit Mint Fringe Crop Top
Crochet Tanks: Again, I don’t have too many boho styled clothing, but I’m really warming up to the idea around this upcoming spring. I love this fabric and think it’s going to be very popular. I also love the fringe here too! For spring, I’d wear this with jeans and flats. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/327285097897114897/
want these shorts!!
Off the Shoulder Tops and Laced Shorts: These tops are so pretty. I really love this one on Pinterest because it looks great with loose waves. I also think the top would be great for multiple occasions. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/353040058266075490/
21 Wave-Friendly Bikinis For A Wardrobe Malfunction-Free Summer #refinery29  http://www.refinery29.com/wave-friendly-bikinis#slide2
Sporty Color- Blocked Swimsuits: Not sure if I should have saved this for my summer wishlist, but now is a good time to start bathing suit shopping. I really like the sportier ones because they tend to incorporate color blocking. I also want a nice color like this light blue. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/119345458852120433/
black and blue floral kimono, white v-neck crop top, light-washed distressed high-waisted shorts, gold necklace
Printed Kimono: This is super pretty with both jeans and shorts. I also think these kimonos look great with strappy dresses. The floral print is pretty, but I also like the tribal and fringed ones too. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/142637513174465286/
I want good red pumps someday. These are contenders.
Pointed Heels: These Valentino studded shoes are gorgeous. I love these pointed heels. I think they’re very in fashion. I’m not entirely sure if I’m going to get a pointed heel or pointed flat yet. I think the flats are more practical and the heels are just pretty to wear. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/563864815821945410/
tiffany blue sheinside top, tory burch carnation red york tote / purse, pbteen monogram necklace, kendra scott magenta rayne necklace - from luckydayblog
Loose Blouses and Long Necklaces: A lot of these pieces have been for casual occasions, but these loose minimalist shirts are good for work and going out. A high-waist pant or shorts would also look good with this top.  I also love these long necklaces with an edgy accent. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/313774299014060775/
