Sparkles and Waves

Growing up in Jersey I always looked forward to those warm Summer days at the beach. There is something so soothing about the ocean breeze and listening to the waves crash. I've been lucky enough to grow up here and enjoy moments like this. When I bought this romper over the Winter I knew I would be wearing this to the beach a lot.

I saw this romper on Instagram and instantly fell in love. It's so elegant and different as well as high quality. I ordered this from Hello Molly which is an online boutique based in Australia. Although the company is overseas, I received this romper in under a week! I couldn't believe how fast this arrived at my door. The quality is great, I will say the sparkles shed so be careful but thats normal with something so glitzy. You can tie the straps around your neck like I did here or make a bow in the front (I personally like the extra support of tying it around my neck). They have a ton of pretty rompers and dresses I have my eye on for Summer! Have you ever shopped here? What do you think?

Pop of Color

Who doesn't love a good pop of color with black and white? This outfit is perfect for a date night or night on the town with the ladies! There is something about black and red together that gives off a bold but classy vibe. 






Top // Earrings // Pants // Shoes (similar here and here)

If you read my post over the weekend, I mentioned that this top is 40% off right now! It is currently on sale for 26.98 which is such a steal! I love the flirty look this top provides and how it can be worn with pants or shorts and still look adorable. My Jeans are also on sale right now from 78$ to 38$. I wear these with literally everything. White pants have become such a staple in my closet due to the fact that they can be dressed up like here, as well as dressed down with sandals and a tee. Don't get me wrong, I still love my regular jeans but I find myself reaching for these more. 

As mentioned above, I just love red with black! I think it really pairs nicely and adds a little edge to an outfit. Along with my earrings I thought a bold red lip would take this outfit up a notch. The lipstick I am wearing is from the Sephora collection number 01. I usually don't go for such a bold lip as I feel like red lipstick doesn't always look good on me, however this one is great! The formula was nice too, not too thin and not too thick. What do you think of bold colors like red? Would you rock a red lip?

Coral Shorts

I absolutely love these shorts! These are the ones I paired with the black one shoulder top a few weeks go for that dress up look (p.s. that top is on sale for 26$, you can find it here). Today I paired them with a denim jacket for a more casual wearable look. The best part of buying items like this is that you can mix and match for a completely different look each time. 






As I talked about above, these shorts are great because you can mix and match them for a variety of looks. I love that these can be casual like I went for here, or dressed up like I did for this look that can be seen here. I have also mixed this denim jacket with a wide variety of outfits too and each time I wear it I receive compliments. Denim jackets are definitely a great staple piece to have in your closet! I found this one for under 50$ at Nordstrom Rack along with the white tank (15$) I am wearing here (comes in 4 colors and I own 3/4!). You don't have to constantly buy new outfits to look on trend! Staple items that can be mixed and matched are perfect for changing up your look without breaking the bank! Let me know what some of your favorite staple pieces are in the comments!

Boho Vibes

This time of the year calls for cute but light layers. Summertime is on the way and I am dreaming of my toes in the sand, this look reminds me of those beautiful days ahead. 






Hat // Earrings // Necklace (very similar) // Kimono // Tank // Shorts // Shoes (similar)

Let me start by saying how much I love this kimono! It looks super cute paired with a dress or over a tank like here. Its light and adds something extra to an otherwise plain outfit. To go along with the boho vibe I was going for, I paired the kimono with some strappy studded sandals and my favorite hat. I added this amazing necklace from target as well as the pink earrings for a pop of color. I think my favorite part of this outfit aside from the kimono is my necklace. I found this awesome layered necklace in Target which like the earrings I have been raving about, is a part of the Sugarfix by Baublebar line they sell there. I still can't believe how many cute accessories they have and at an amazing price point. If you like Baublebar but not the price, I highly recommend checking out the line at Target. I find that the quality is great but you're spending less. This necklace was 16.99 and the earrings were 12.99. What do you think of this boho look?

Top 5 Summer Bathing Suit Picks

Although the weather has been iffy I am busy preparing my Summer wardrobe! No summer wardrobe is complete without some cute bathing suits! Below are some of the bathing suits I have purchased for Summer/ want to purchase! 

Hat // Earrings // Bikini (top, bottom) // Bag (old from Coach)

I bought this suit on a whim! I fell in love with the blue and white stripes as well as how well it fit. When I shop for bathing suits I always go for full coverage bottoms. I feel most comfortable in them but I feel like they are incredibly hard to find. These fit perfect! The little ties at the top are adjustable and I found this fit TTS. I am wearing an XS in both the top and bottom. Unfortunately I was not able to find this online in the same color but I did find it in coral and white which is also super cute! For those who want a little more front coverage I found the blue and white pattern in this style that you can see here


I found this suit on ASOS and ordered it after seeing it on another blogger. It is so different than anything I own and will really make a statement at Summer pool parties! I usually don't go for one pieces but this season there are so many cute ones!


Main Image - Becca Show & Tell One-Piece Swimsuit
I LOVE this one piece suit. I have not purchased it yet but have seen it while shopping in Nordstrom. The neckline and lace really make this suit stand out! This comes in a lovely purple color as well if you like a more colorful bathing suit.  One piece suits are definitely in this season and this is one that is sure to turn heads!




Becca Bikini

This bikini is from the same line as the one piece above and another I have added to my wish list. What is really cool about this line is that there's a variety of styles to mix and match in both the tops and bottoms! I personally like this combo but would pair it with hipster bottom rather than the high waisted. This line has something for everyone including different styles of the one piece I posted above.

Bikini (top, bottom)

Last but certainly not least is this adorable high waisted set. The little pom-poms and pops of pink are what has landed this set on my wish list. This color combo is so perfect for summer days at the beach and pool!

Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

The Cutest Little Romper

Who doesn't love a good romper for Summer! When you find one this good you have to share it!






Hat // Earrings // Romper // Shoes (designer dupe here)

I found this cute little romper while shopping in a local boutique and fell in love. The fabric is super light so its perfect for that hot Summer weather. I would wear this to the beach as a coverup but it could also work for going out to a casual lunch. The fabric is thin so anything underneath should be neutral if you don't want it to show! While finding this online to link here I discovered Billabong also makes this print in pants (link here) and a sundress (link here) if rompers aren't your thing! I am so happy the weather is warming up, I can't wait to start going to the beach! Would you all like to see a post on my top bathing suit picks? I plan on doing one soon with ones that I have my eye on and the new ones I just purchased!

Glitter and Lace

So maybe I am an outfit color repeater, but when I saw this adorable blush top I had to have it! I am a sucker for lace and the adorable babydoll silhouette this top has.






Earrings // Blouse // Necklace // Jeans (old) // Shoes 

I paired this dainty blouse with one of my favorite pairs of shoes. If you have read some of my earlier posts I mentioned these were my wedding reception shoes. They are so pretty and are very special to me so they only come out of the box once in a while. I searched for months before my wedding for the heel counterpart to these flats. When I couldn't find them at first my maid of honor and parents purchased these for me just in case I never found the heels. Lucky for me I did find the heel and was able to wear both during different parts of the wedding. The thought behind the purchase of these shoes is what makes them so special to me.

I think these shoes pair so nicely with this top and would also look good with white jeans or even a skirt. I actually found this top in a local store that sells all kinds of beach wear and adorable clothing you don't see everywhere. I was able to find it online for you all, however if you are lucky enough to find it in store its a little cheaper. It cost me around 60$ in store but is unfortunately 80$ online. I will say it is high quality and could work for both work or play. I am wearing a small in this (the store didn't have an xs) but I don't think this looks too oversized. Considering I am ALWAYS an xs it may be best to size up, however I can't say for sure if it runs small or is TTS. What do you think of this look?

Nautical Vibes


My absolute favorite color combo in the Summer is red, white, and blue! I just love the nautical vibes these colors have when put together. This outfit would be perfect for those Memorial Day BBQ's!







Top (similar here and here) // Jeans // Earrings // Hat // Shoes 

Not only is this outfit super cute, but every piece in this outfit was super cheap! I got these high waisted Abercrombie pants on sale for 40$, the top was 15$ at TJ Maxx, and the accessories were a steal at Target. It definitely doesn't cost a million bucks to look and feel like a million bucks! I absolutely love shopping at TJ Maxx, I always find adorable pieces there that are unique and affordable. When I saw this pretty eyelet white and blue blouse I knew I had to have it. 

Unfortunately, I usually can't find jeans there because I am so petite, however Abercrombie has great jeans for petite gals! They make them in regular or short, which is great since I am 5'1. I wear a 00S for reference. Your best bet is to get them this time of year when they are on sale or else they can be on the pricey side. I will spend a little more on a pair of jeans that fit just right because I actually hate shopping for jeans and always have. They seldom fit how I want! When I was little I refused to wear jeans and would only wear dresses! Anyone else struggle with jean shopping?
