GET INTO THE MOOD

the time is now 3:40 a.m. on an early saturday morning. i lay awake with thoughts fluttering through my mind–what a time to be alive.

so much has happened since my almost-four-month hiatus from blogging. from the women’s march to fashion month, what can i say… i feel inspired.

here’s my spring mood board, enjoy!

tory burch fashion week

sorry it has been so long! i was meaning to post during fashion week, but the timing for me was not great–better late than never, right? anywho, after fashion week came to a close my all time favorite show was tory burch’s. so much color & fun touches in the detail of her clothes always make me so excited!

this year’s show was especially good as the theme was “east coast meets west coast.” it took your classic preppy look & added a nautical californian twist. personally, i loved it! the balance was superb & i am still obsessing over her use of color.

starting with my favorite: kelly green!

i loved her cardigan! the blush pink bordering was just too perfect!

now onto the orange!

i loved the orange skirt & white sweater outfit, but my favorite out of the 3 would have to be the bow dress tory herself is wearing!

keep your eyes out for some more posts!

gingham for days

gingham is a great way to spice up an outfit! if you are ever looking for a solid casual outfit, add some gingham to your day. a good oxford is always a great staple item, but you can have way more fun than that when it comes to gingham! try a skirt, flats, blazer, even a bag! there are no limits to fashion!

gingham has been around for a very long time. it is really interesting to see how much patterns have evolved over the years & the different things gingham is being used for.

the go-to store for gingham (in my opinion) has to be j. crew. i love their classic take on my favorite pattern, but i also love their different take on it!

classic button up:

navy gingham//red gingham

pants & shorts:

gingham pants (also in pink)//gingham shorts

blazers & cardigans:

gingham cardigan//gingham blazer (also in pink)

swim:

gingham rashguard//gingham one piece (also in pink)

rompers & skirts:

gingham skirt//gingham romper

shoes:

gingham ballet flats//gingham lace-ups

thanks for stopping by, this has been oh, so fun!

xoxo, mia

summer lovin’ had me a blast

as promised, a summer post! i hope you didn’t get the wrong idea about how i feel about summer, i actually love it. it’s the dreadful scorching temperatures of 109 degrees that i dislike.

summer has so much potential, you can dress down, you can dress up, either way there is room for comfort in both!

i find that my go to outfit this summer has been a j. crew ruffle oxford (which they finally brought back!) with either a pair of jeans or a skirt & a great pair of shoes to really steal the spotlight.

a trend i feel very iffy about right now are off-the-shoulder dresses & tops. i am not sure if i like them or if i don’t. overall, i think i may think they look good on some other people, i just think it might be a stretch for me. but one that definitely isn’t would be shirt dresses. i love the overall concept of them & it is easy enough to put on & still look put together.

stripes have always been a fan favorite of mine, & i find it very easy in the summer time to reach for a good stripe & bottom & leave the house just like that. below are both a classic take on the stripe shirt & a fun twist!

that’s all for me today! catch you on the flip side!
