Style Sessions – Stripe Top and Cut Off Shorts


Few things beat denim cut off shorts and a classic stripe top, they’re wardrobe style staples for every gal! When it comes to wearing simple pieces, the key to elevating your look is all in the details. This ASOS Stripe Ruffle Top is absolutely perfect (for you momma’s to be, there’s a maternity version too and it’s only $13!) and distressed denim gives classic cut off shorts a cool factor. You’ll also find a huge range of awesome denim shorts and striped tee’s here.

I’ve also been living in mirror sunglasses and a classic French Connection cross body bag, which are both great for summer days. It’s from Macy’s Backstage and oh how I love outlet shopping! I’m a major fan of Macy’s (they have everything), so shopping discounted fashion, home, cosmetics, gifts, active wear and jewelry at Macy’s Backstage is perfect.

I also wanted to make special mention of these Aerosoles brogue shoes (they’re a major trend!). The style I have is called Sweet Bet and honestly, they are the comfiest flats I have ever (ever) owned. The blush pink is beautiful, they match everything!

Tell me gals, are stripe tops and denim shorts staples in your wardrobe too? Where are some of your favorite places to shop for classic pieces? I’m always on the hunt for simple tee’s and denim, so would love to discover your go-to stores… leave a comment and let me know!

Style Sessions – Color Block Pleat Maxi Dress


If we’re connected on Instagram, you may have seen that I flew to Sydney last Friday to celebrate my sister Georgia’s bachelorette weekend.  She is getting married this Saturday (sooo exciting!) and we had a beautiful time. If you’re looking for a fun idea and something different for your bachelorette, I would definitely recommend a Flower Crown workshop with your favorite friends. We started the day with champagne and sweet treats, then started making our beautiful fresh flower crowns, before wearing our masterpieces to lunch nearby at The Grounds of Alexandra (it’s beautiful and as the most incredible food).

I wore my favorite dress right now – the ASOS Chevron Color Block Pleat Maxi Dress. It’s under $90 and super fun to wear! I styled it with my Vince Scuba Leather Jacket and also sometimes wear it with this Mavi Jeans Samantha Denim Jacket too. It sold out super quick, but sizes do pop back up (that’s how I snagged mine) so it’s worth checking back. There’s also this color block blue and blush maxi dress version too, which is so pretty!

Maxi dresses are always my go-to, they’re easy to wear and create a stylish look for day or night. You can shop more stunning maxi dresses here, they have some really good ones!

I’ve also been living in these Splendid Caracas Sandals, they’re cute, comfy and come in lots of colors. Again, flat summer sandals are essential and look perfect with shorts, skirts, dresses and jeans! You can shop my favorite sandals here, plus don’t forget to check out gladiator sandals too, they are always on point.

Style Sessions – Pom Pom Kaftan and Teva Sandals


This pom pom kaftan has become my summer favorite. As it is only $57, it’s been selling out fast! I lived in it on my recent vacation and think it’s perfect for festival season too. Are you attending any music festivals soon? Bonnaroo is on this week and has a great line up (the luxury cabana’s you can stay in look fab too). It’s fun getting the squad together to see incredible bands. There’s nothing better than a lazy summer weekend of live music and a fun festival vibe!

I also love these Teva Sandals, they’re perfect for a big festival day. Being real leather, they are the most comfortable sandals I’ve ever worn! Festival fashion is all about channeling that effortless, boho vibe and these sandals are my top pick for an easy go-to that works beautifully with dresses, shorts and jeans.

Oh and aviator sunglasses… girls, you’ve got to have your aviators! If you’re heading to Bonnaroo this week, have an amazing time!

I’d love to hear what your favorite festival is? Let me know below, I adore chatting with you about fun things over email.
