Brunch at Oxford Exchange

Forever 21 Top {on sale for $9} similar HERE  and HERE // Forever 21 Skirt {thrifted for under $5 in NY} // Kate Spade Wellesley Alessa Shoulder Bag // Topshop Marble Ring 

Yesterday I ate at the Oxford Exchange, a popular brunch spot in downtown Tampa. The restaurant and shop is quite a sight-I always feel like I am walking through a quaint British train station when I first enter the building and see the exquisite architectural woodwork. For the occasion I wore my two favorite colors white and navy. I also attempted the trendy half up half down bun look! At first I was hesitant to try it out on my own hair because my natural curls created knots, but after a few tweaks I think I successfully found the right amount of hair for the look. Make sure to scroll down and see some more photos from brunch, including the decadent desserts and cute greeting cards.

I'm very happy to post a new outfit today! I've had a busy few weeks--I traveled to New York last week to see my family and surprise my Grandma for her 85th birthday. We took a train into the city and I saw the Gloria Estefan broadway play with my aunts. It was beautifully done and the dancing was incredible to watch. I learned so much about her life and enjoyed singing along to all her songs. We also stopped into Maison Kayser for dessert; I ate a chocolate truffle cake that I wish I could eat all the time! I also did some shopping while in vacation. I picked up the shorts in this look. I also purchased this tie-dye kimono a few days ago from H&M. It was only $7! I couldn't find the exact one online, but I found some similar options. Thanks for stopping by!

under $50: nordstrom anniversay sale favorites

Pretty much every blogger is posting about their favorite picks from the #NSale, or Nordstrom Anniversary Sale right about now. A few months ago I signed up for the new Nordstrom Rewards program and was gifted $10 to spend before August, so I personally have been scouring the sales for my own shopping benefit! While looking, I did find some pretty amazing deals--how about some Adidas Superstar Sneakers on sale from $80 down to $59!? And tons of Kendra Scott pieces, like this necklace I own, are almost half off, too. Shop all of my favorites {and potential purchases!} below!

the nautical life



Top: Aeropostale {similar Calvin Klein pick for $13 here
Skirt: Hollister {similar BCBGeneration Pencil Skirt only $27
Bag: Forever 21, old {similar favorite for $20}

Navy is one of my favorite colors to wear. I am loving this skirt I recently bought from Hollister for under $12 that just so happens to be a gorgeous navy lace pattern. Unlike some skirts that can be itchy with a lace fabric, this one is super soft and easy to walk in. To wear it as a casual look, I paired it with a simple Aero striped tee. Tying it at the bottom also keeps the shirt from looking too baggy. White accessories in the form of my Kendra Scott necklace and white crossbody bag complete this summertime outfit. Thanks for stopping by, have a fantastic day!
