Fall Dream | Topshop

Untitled design-3

Hey friends!

Happy September! I am thrilled about today’s post! It’s another collaboration with Topshop and Stylinity, and it doesn’t get much more fall, am I right?

I’m getting some Halloween vibes, and I’m living for it.

In my mind, September 1st is Halloween 1st, and the Halloween makeup looks begin. And don’t worry, yes, my room is already decorated for fall. Lol.

LOOK at this dress.

All of the details of this dress are to die for. From the gorgeous color palette, to the stunning lace layers throughout the bodice, to the beautiful floral design, all the way to the sheer, lace sleeves, I’m dead. But in the best way.

FLORAL MIDI DRESS

Are you kidding me? Look at those little buttons, SO CUTE.

The back of this dress is completely sheer lace, which is stunning if you’re into that kinda thing, I’m just a little funny about showing off my whole back! haha

I plan on wearing this dress to a formal, late September wedding, because it’s literally the perfect formal, fall dress!

CHUNKY BLACK HEELS

I love how they add a unique, street-style flair to an otherwise, rather feminine dress!

Daytime Dressin’ | Topshop

Hey friends!

I am so excited about today’s post! It’s in collaboration with the Topshop and Stylinity, and this look is also the cutest, so there’s that.

This style of “shirt dress” has become super popular this season, and I had never tried one on! Everyone else always looks so cute in them, but for some reason, I just thought I couldn’t rock it!

I was WRONG.

STRIPE DRAWSTRING SHIRT DRESS

Untitled design.jpg

I love everything about this look! It’s the perfect look for any daytime outing like brunch with the girls, shopping and lunch.. or anything, really!

Untitled design-2

This dress is so lightweight and breathable, relaxed, and it’s so comfortable! It’s made so well, and I can tell I will get a ton of use out of it!

The drawstring waist is an adorable touch, too!

I paired the dress with a pair of classic sneakers just because I was doing a lot of walking that day, but you could easily dress it up a bit more with a heel and fun bag!

POINTY POLLY FRAME SUNGLASSES

Untitled design-2.jpg

I am a total sunglass junkie; the more pairs, the merrier!

I am so into cat-eye shaped sunglasses, but these ones from the Topshop are by far my favorite ones I own! I’ve never owned such a nice pair of sunglasses before!

I love tortoiseshell too, you can easily wear it with both blacks, browns, and every color in between!

Hey Friends!

I just got back from a trip to Florida with my family for Thanksgiving. I could not wait for some warmer weather, and we got to go to Disney World; it was super fun! While in Florida, we went to Disney Springs, which is the cutest outdoor shopping center, and I finally had the chance to wear my Viscata Raco Suede Platform Espadrilles in Black.

“Founded in Barcelona, Viscata® is a premium espadrille brand that captures the vibrant Mediterranean spirit through superior craftsmanship, comfort, and style for any occasion.”

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

I was so excited when I got these in the mail, they are stunning! They are made SO well. Actually, they’re handmade in Barcelona, to be exact. How neat! When I tried them on, I knew they would be super comfy… I was right.

The sole of these shoes is like a little piece of squishy heaven! This particular shoe is part Espadrille & part sneaker, they’re so fun! And they’re elevated with a 1″ platform. They recommend to go up a half-size if you’re in between 2 sizes! I got a size “5.5-6,” and they fit me perfectly! 🙂

Viscata offers SO many different styles, from mules to wedges, from flats to pumps, there is a pair for everyone! SHOP WOMEN’S HERE!

They also have a great selection for men! SHOP MEN’S HERE!

Actually, you’re in luck… They’re offering 30% off ALL STYLES with the code: RESORTSALE. Take advantage of this sale NOW, your feet will thank you later!

I paired my Raco Platform Espadrilles with one of my favorite sundresses + some fun earrings and called it a day! I loved how my Viscatas complemented the dress so well!

My Glasses Collection | EyeBuyDirect

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hey friends!

Today I am doing a roundup of all my EyeBuyDirect frames. For those of you who don’t know, I wear contacts and glasses every single day, I can’t live without them! EyeBuyDrect is insanely affordable… we’re talking $9 frames affordable, sooo Merry Christmas to yourself, am I right?

I started wearing glasses in about the 6th grade, and I always hated them. I always hated all the options they had at my eye dr. and never felt like they were me or my style; I just felt goofy in them, and would hardly wear them out of the house.

A little over a year ago, I stumbled upon EyeBuyDirect when searching online for alternatives for buying glasses rather than buying them in-store/at the dr.

If you don’t know what EyeBuyDirect is they are an online store for all things glasses and sunglasses. They have the capability of putting your prescription in as long as you have access to your prescription. (I wear contacts so it’s on my box, but if you don’t just call your eye dr.) I would highly suggest you use your exact Rx and don’t just guess!! haha

A great thing about EBD is they offer “Buy One Get One Free” ALL. THE. TIME. I have gotten 2 pairs of glasses for less than $50 WITH my prescription! That’s insane. They are always having amazing deals and sales!

Adding in a basic lens for  distance starts as low as $6.95! WHAT. And they have a 14 day fit & style guarantee, meaning you have 2 weeks to decide if you love your frames on, and if you don’t you can return them up to 14 days!

Please excuse my appearance in the images below, I’ve been sick for a week & kind of look like a potato.

My Frames

Juno – $9

These are one of my go-to’s!

Fitzgerald – $32

Love the vintage feel of these frames!

Achiever – $15

I got these ones for more casual days and for wearing around bed time, they’re super sturdy, thick plastic, perfect for the clumsy and not-so-careful. fall-asleep-with-glasses-on type. Lol. That would be me.

The Beat – $15

These are a gorgeous burgundy shade, and I literally wear these everyday!!

Providence – $22

I just recently got these guys. They’re matte brown! So pretty!

Delaware  – $9

And last but not least, these guys are matte black, and I love them so much! They’re on my face right now 🙂

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

EyeBuyDirect offers frames in a bunch of different sizes, shapes, widths, lengths, so for the most accurate fit, make sure you pay close attention to sizing & dimensions, and even measure your own face/head! They also feature a unique try on experience, that let’s you upload an image of yourself to see how the frames would look on! 🙂

You can use the code: IF4CG6HBRA to receive $10 off your first purchase 🙂

Or go to this link and your discount will automatically be added to your first purchase: https://www.eyebuydirect.com/2566851

I get a TON of questions about my glasses all the time so I thought I’d fill you in!

You no longer have to feel like a dweeb in your glasses, when you can rock totally affordable, trendy glasses WITH your prescription from EyeBuyDirect! So what are you waiting for? There’s always room for some self-gifting, and I hear Christmas is just around the corner… so you might as well buy 3 pairs! 😉

This post is not in collaboration/sponsorship with EyeBuyDirect, I really just do love them! (Hey EyeBuy, if you’re reading this, I am down for that! ;))

Thanks for stopping by!

Black, White, & Breathable | Shop The Mint

Well hey!

I am so excited for this post, because this dress is actually the cutest and SO me.

Another thing that is super exciting is that I’ve teamed up with The Mint Julep Boutique, also known as, Shop The Mint, for this look.

Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with Mint Julep, it’s located in AL, but is widely known for their online boutique and adorable Instagram! Go give them a follow, you need this kind of cuteness on your feed: https://www.instagram.com/shopthemint/.

Now let’s talk this dress.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

I wish the word obsessed was strong enough to describe my love for this dress, but it’s not. But since that’s the best word I can come up with, I’m OBSESSED with this dress.

If you know anything about me, I’m a sucker for all things flowy; so these sleeves have my name written all over them.

This Feel the Heat Dress is absolutely stunning. I love all the little details that make this dress!

Let’s start with the obvious: black and white. You can’t go wrong with black and white in my book; it’s timeless, it’s effortless, and can be worn year round depending on how you style it/where you live.

This dress is SO lightweight. It’s SO breathable. And it’s SO comfortable, making it the perfect dress for summertime, despite the 3/4 length sleeves. Airy, airy’s the word. This dress is super airy!!

One thing I especially love about this dress is the adjustable waist. It’s actually perfect for someone like me, who can’t fit into most clothing even if you paid me. I was able to cinch the waist in and tie it tight, to cater to my needs. And vice versa. You can tighten or loosen the waist to give you your perfect fit!! It’s genius.

Plus the length of this beauty is amazing!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

I am loving the delicate, little buttons down the bodice as well. Such a sweet extra touch to this already perfect dress!

I styled this dress with one of my go-to summer hats, a delicate black choker, and some simple black heeled  sandals!

You seriously can’t go wrong with this dress, so hurry up and snag it before it sells out! Purchase it HERE!

BONUS: If you sign up for their mailing list, you’re receive $10 off your first purchase! Who doesn’t love money off and a perfect outfit? It’s a win, win!

Thank you so much to The Mint Julep Boutique for collaborating on this with me!

Summer in Style

Happy Summer, Friends!

I hope your first few days of Summer have been filled with endless days by the pool, a thousand popsicles, and the smell of sunscreen. One of my favorite smells in the world is sunscreen, there I said it.

Speaking of popsicles, sunscreen, and the pool, what are your vacation plans for the summer? Going anywhere fun?!

I’m currently in the area of Muskegon, MI, visiting my boyfriend’s family! Every year his family comes to a place called Maranatha up in Michigan, right along Lake Michigan.

In a few short days I’ll be on my way to Missouri, and next month, I’ll be in one of my favorite places on earth: Haiti! For those of you who don’t know me personally, my father is a missionary to Haiti, and has been my whole life. I’ve spent most of my life watching him leave for trips, and ever since I was around the middle school age, I’ve been going every summer.

Summertime is one of my favorite times of the year, right next to Autumn, and Christmas time… lol Okay, I can’t pick a favorite. I love every season for different reasons.

I love that summer brings the warm sunshine, the cute, summery clothes, and the ability to go on trips/vacations.

Speaking of cute, summery clothes, I am loving this dress!!!

Also, look at these pictures! My nugget Camden (CamdenJProductions) and his brother (@GrahamJPhoto) took these photos for me along Lake Michigan!

You’ll never believe how much this dress was.

It was only like $14 from the Target sale rack. If you didn’t know, I get the majority of my clothes from the Target sale rack. lol Your girl doesn’t like to spend an arm and a leg on clothes.

The details of this dress are SO pretty, and I think it was the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe. And for $14, it absolutely was.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetIMG_0815

Flowy material, crocheted detailing, ruffles, & tassel ties; is this not the perfect summertime maxi? You should totally check your local Target’s sale rack, because this dress has been in the store for forever, and it finally hit the sale racks like last week.

Of course, I threw on a hat, because your girl lives on hats and hats alone. JK not the truth, but I sure do love them. This old thing is most likely from Target or Forever 21.

I hope you have a wonderful, fun summertime with family and friends, and most importantly, you do it in style. 😉

Hey there & welcome back!

This little number is the sweetest sundress for summer, and I’ve teamed up with Sweet Olive & Co. for this look!

I’m the kind of girl who wears dresses most days out of the week during summertime! I love how easy dresses are to wear! You might be afraid of being too dressy by wearing a dress just in everyday life, but that’s totally not the case!

There are SO many casual dress options or ways of making a dress look less dressy!

This Dusty Rose Colored Sundress from Sweet Olive & Co. is a perfect option, and it’s just too cute!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 preset

First of all, I love the color of this dress!!

The style of this dress is what they call a “sack dress!” AKA it kind of just hangs there, and that might be intimidating to some, but I love it. It’s so effortlessly cute, and it’s so beautiful in an understated kind of way.

All the details of this dress are definitely heart-eyes worthy!

Processed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 preset

The crinkly fabric is so laid-back and cute! Plus, it’s super airy, making it the perfect dress for summertime!

I LOVE the cinched hemline at the top, and the eyelet detailing at the bottom is just too sweet! PLUS, this dress has adjustable straps!! HALLELUJAH!! Adjustable straps are my best friend!!

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

I’ve paired this beauty with some super adorable sandals I just got from JustFab, my go-to site for shoes!

If you haven’t checked out Sweet Olive & Co. yet, you better! They have 2 locations, 1 in Greenwood, and 1 in Franklin, IN.

You can use my coupon code: CLAIRE15 at checkout to save some money, girlfriend!
