Hey guys! I’m back with an outfit post finally! Woo hoo!
Summer is here and the heat is on! Crop tops have been a major summer staple for a while now. If you have rocked this look, then you’re most likely going to like the bralette/crop top combo like the one I’m wearing here. When I tried this top on, I fell in love with it, but didn’t have the guts to wear it by itself. I just thought that it was a little too daring for me, so my denim jacket came to the rescue! Problem solved. Layering it with any piece of outerwear will give your outfit a more relaxed, but subtle sexy look. Balance plays a major role on how to wear a bralette crop top: Opt for something high-waisted (pants, skirt, shorts) to make it look less risqué. I like when a bit of skin is showing and most of the mid drift is covered. Classy is key!
Many of you know about the Nordstrom anniversary sale that’s going on now. Guess what? This top just went on sale! Grab it while it’s hot! Happy shopping ❤
There’s one color that I can’t get enough of: Olive green. This shade looks good on everybody and looks good in pretty much everything. Instead of the popular olive bomber jacket we’ve seen everywhere, I opted for something lightweight to tackle Spring temperatures and can be used in the Summer as well: an olive-green chambray button down. I’ve gone through a few of these over the years and have worn them over maxi dresses, denim, shorts…you name it. All you have to do is throw it on to anchor an outfit. I did a little pop of color with an orange cami because it goes with khaki tones so well. Since the pieces I have on are a bit on the baggy side, I decided to wear heels for added height (balance is key, ladies!). And as far as my accessories go, leopard and stripes go hand in hand here (yes, you can mix patterns as long as the colors match!). Lastly, can’t have a My Style and Grace outfit without sunglasses and these mirrored lovelies are everything. To my go to shirt this season: Olive you so much ❤
First blog post of the month! Woohoo! I’ve been quite a busy bee lately, but I hope you guys didn’t miss me too much! I am currently working on an Instagram project with Coach, so stay tuned for that! It’s not going to be until April/May, but I am very excited and can’t wait to share with you guys!
Anyways, back to business. Let’s talk about dressing basic/minimal. This style has taken over the world of social media and it’s been proven that it’s not such a bad thing. Clean lines and simple silhouettes – it’s a no brainer. The key here is adding a statement to your outfit. That can be texture, a little pattern or pop of color to help accentuate the “basics”. It’s also nice to stick with neutral palettes and don’t be afraid to be playful! Instead of a basic white button down, I picked this one up with a slightly ruffled back and my pants tie in the front! I kept my shoes and accessories simple: nude sandals, classic aviators and gold minimal jewelry. When it comes to this pared-down and understated look, less is definitely more. ❤
Leather skinnies are always a hit in every cool girls’ wardrobe, but right now, my season favorite is the leather jogger. Low-slung and slouchy, (just like boyfriend jeans) it’s very menswear chic and completely desirable – these beauties are a combination of androgyny and comfort. YAS! No wonder the sweatpants trend is socially-acceptable as streetwear these days. Whether dressed up with pointy pumps or dressed down with flats or sneakers, this comfy trend will keep you looking chic when paired with the right pieces! I wanted to keep the “tomboy, but girly” look flow going, so I wore a baggy sheer paneled shirt with a racerback bralette. Tip for wearing a sheer top: If possible, wear something in a color that either creates contrast or complements the color of your sheer top. This way, your undergarment will look like an intentional part of the outfit. 🙂
Hope you guys are having a fabulous Monday and remember to be amazing today! My fancy pants and I are ready to take on the world, but first, coffee. ❤
What’s not to love about palm trees? Whenever I see palm trees, I think of tropical beaches in paradise and this top makes me feel like I’m going on a Hawaiian getaway, umbrella drink included. My sister gifted me this shirt for my birthday in June and I’ve worn it constantly with jeans and cutoffs – even alone over my bikini as a cover up! Such a perfect summer top!
I swapped my denim blues for white denim as a nice shift from my heavy darks. I think white jeans are perfect for anchoring prints, especially when you are mixing them. What’s a summer outfit without a panama hat and statement sunglasses? These are my summer essentials and pulls the whole “summery vibe” look together. Chunky sandals can be cute depending on how you style them and my all black Birkenstocks are further proof that basically everything goes with them.
I hope you guys are enjoying what’s left of the summer because it’ll be gone before you know it! I’m about to spend the rest of my #PalmSundaze hunting for palm trees. ❤
On Sunday’s I also like to catch up on my favorite blogs and I wanted to share with you Talk Pray Shop by my lovely friend Amanda! Her posts are filled with feel-good content so please check it out and you’ll see why this blue-eyed beauty is one of my faves!

She’s a die-hard donut lover like me. Enough said.
Is it possible to fall in love with your wardrobe? My answer is, YES! Currently lusting over these amazing items and I just can’t get enough! Which one is your favorite? What items are you craving this spring season?
We are so spoiled when it comes to the weather here in California. There are some days during the winter when I can get away without wearing a jacket and I don’t mind it one bit. Spring is just around the corner and I just couldn’t wait to wear this easy, breezy monochromatic combo. I love palazzo pants because of of its versatility. This is my second pair from Zara and I just love the way they design their palazzo pants! You can pair it with a simple tank, a sweater, a bold blazer and my personal favorite, a simple and solid crop top. Because of such nice weather we’ve been having lately, I put on a crop top instead. The length of this crop top is modest and doesn’t show too much skin which I like. I decided to ditch the jacket and show off my arms because why not? If the weather permits, I am taking full advantage! And of course, coats come off eventually right? So crop it like its hot! ❤
Stylish sneakers everywhere have made it into people’s everyday looks and I am not mad about it! Sneakers are known for its laid-back reputation, but this sporty staple are front and center in my wardrobe! They are versatile, comfortable, and easy to wear. They are not just made for the gym anymore, but rather a chic and low-key addition to any style outfit. The way I style my sneakers is to look less “done” but screams “street chic” and not sloppy. I styled my New Balance sneakers (can you see the gingham detail on the back? SUPER CUTE!) with my comfortable leather leggings. I also wanted to add more color for contrast, so I chose this olive-colored, oversized silk blouse. And my bag? It is vintage Gucci which also doubles as a clutch. Talk about functional!
The weekend is almost here! Give your feet a break, kick off those heels and slip on a pair of sneakers today. They are casual, cool and with a pop of color, it will make your outfit youthful and fun. ❤
