Screen Protector

I know this is nothing new, but I highly encourage you to invest in a screen protector for your iPhone. I have dropped mine one too many times and finally repaired the screen and added a screen protector to avoid anymore cracks.

Food Containers

After the first week of work, I’m realizing it is very important to bring food for lunch rather than eating. Not only is it more economical, it is also most likely better for you. I have a few containers that I will bring my lunch in everyday.

Rosebud Salve

A friend gave me this lip balm, and I’m obsessed. It doesn’t go on sticky and adds a nice shine to your lips. Click the link to buy!

Wednesday started the annual Zara summer sale!!!! And I couldn’t be more excited. If you’ve been following along for really any amount of time, you know how much I love Zara. I will post all of my favorite pieces from the sale tomorrow, Saturday, so be on the lookout for that post!

The Coveted Third Piece

A third piece can elevate your outfit for a more put together and chic look. Not only will you look fashion, but it adds interest to your outfit.

You all know how much I love my denim vest. Well, I’ve linked the one I bought from Old Navy plus a few others that would be the perfect layering piece to any dress or casual tee and denim combo.

You can always count on J.Crew for a good blazer. Not only are they well-structured, but they come in beautiful textures and colors.

The bell sleeve on this denim jacket feminizes the rugged look, and the light wash allows you to pair it with a summer dress or a chunky turtleneck in the fall. The bomber trend continues – spice up your athleisure look as well as your night out look.

These cardigans can take you from summer to fall. It may be cold in your office or where you live, so they will be a nice layering piece for all climates.

Happy Shopping!

I’ve had this romper for awhile now, and I’m constantly trying to create new looks with it. Since it is a blank canvas, the pairing options are endless. I’ve worn the romper with a denim vest and adidas, wedges and chunky earrings and now with mule espadrilles and a neckerchief, among other things. Like I mentioned in Friday Finds a few weeks ago, be bold and try out the neckerchief.

Yeti

This water bottle has been amazing. I am used to drinking so much water at school, and I’m trying to get back in the habit of drinking just as much at home. I’ve taken this with me everywhere (I even snuck it into the movie theater), and the water stays ice cold all day. Get your own!

Blue Stripes 1, 2, 3

Everyone needs blue stripes in their summer wardrobe. My friends and family can attest that half my closet is just that. I’ve pulled a few of my favorites: a flowy blouse, shirtdress and basic tee. Plus, get $50 off at Hudson Way through Monday June 12!

 

My brother and I have textbooks from years of school, so I found some time to sell them. There are a few great websites that will buy your textbooks and send you a free shipping label. All you have to do is put them in the mail, and they send a check to you. I’ve used: webuytextbooks.com, bookbyte.com, sellbackyourbook.com.
