Wish-list Wednesday (+ SheIn Sale & Rocksbox News!)

Hey babes, happy Wednesday!  I hope that everybody's week is going well so far but if it's been a struggle I hope this post will be a little bit of a pick me up. Today I'm talking clothes and a few pieces I'd love to have in my closet for the upcoming season!

As usual, I have some items from a few of my sponsors such as SheIn & Rocksbox,  as well as some goodies from my friends over at the Pittsburgh local Fascino Boutique. I'm also featuring clothes from Love The Sales, (Thanks to fellow blogger, Jodie, of Jodetopia, for sharing her finds from them on her blog!) which is a site based in the U.K. featuring all kinds of brands from Banana Republic to Balmain. And for my U.S. readers don't fret! Love The Sales is not U.K. exclusive, so us American girls can shop there too! Let's take a look shall we?

1. Mesh Stripe Collared Playsuit, Love The Sales ($20.40)

  • The reason I liked this romper is because I have always been a huge fan of cutout detailing. To me it's just simply the right amount of skin to show making this piece fun and subtly sexy. 

2. Silver Wing Collar Clip, SheIn ($5.60)

  • Recently, I've been into non-button down collared blouses. However, they can be a bit tricky to accessorize. So when I came across this collar clip I just thought it'd be a nice rendition to my jewelry collection as well as something new to try styling.

3.  Rachel-T Sandal in Cement, Frye Company ($188)

  • As we all know, I'm quite partial to Frye Company. So naturally when I was browsing for sandals Frye was one of the first places I looked, and as always they did not disappoint. 

4. Cami Jumper with Belt, Fascino Boutique ($68)

  • Something I really wanted to added to my wardrobe this year were some more one piece outfits. So while searching the web for jumpsuits I was happy when I came across this one from one of my favorite local shops!

5. SLATE, Moonlight Daydream Cuff, Rocksbox 

  • Lately, I've been into bracelets more than usual and for me the more unsusal the bracelet the better! So when I found this while looking at my sponsor's re-branding, I immediately added it to my "wish list" so hopefully, you'll see me styling it soon!

6. Blue Ombre Fringe Tee, SheIn ($14.99)

  • Ever since I was a tween, I've loved fringe and I honestly think it's just a phase I might never grow out of. So naturally when I seen this cute ombre top, I started thinking about cute ways I could style it.

7. High Low Dress, SheIn ($14.73)

  • Though I haven't quite jumped on the high low dress bandwagon, this one did catch my eye just because I liked the sleek style and clean lines.

8. Tri-tone Shift Dress, SheIn ($16.99)

  • This boho beauty has just the right color scheme for summer and would just be absolutely prefect for seasonal outings.

9. Shirt Dress, SheIn ($21.99)

  • Another summer classic for dressing down: the simple shirt dress. While this is a very simple style I would love to dress it up with some jewelry and accessories, not to mention it would look perfect with those Frye sandals I listed earlier.

10. Metallic Heeled Pumps, SheIn ($31.99)

  • Though these wouldn't normally be my taste, I just really loved the blush pink color of these shoes and though they'd make a nice statement piece for the office due to their metallic heel.

11. Printed Tee, SheIn ($6.99)

  • Honestly, this tee is just another one I can add to my (seemingly) never ending quest for cute tee shirts for summer!

12. Nora Peek-a-boo Dress, Fascino Boutique ($54)

  • The reason I love this romantic number is due to it's crochet detailing. I would love to have this to take with me to the U.K. because I think it's a perfect outfit for a casual date.

13. Off the Shoulder Lace Crop Top, SheIn ($11.99)

  • Two of my favorite styles combined: Boho and '90s. This top would just be so fun to style because of the various different looks you could make with it.

14. Floral Kimono, SheIn ($17.99)

  • I've been on a hunt for a kimono since last spring and had no luck until I came across this beauty! I just loved the flower detailing and know it would pair so nicely with my bralette top.

15. Faux Sleeve Tie Striped Culottes, SheIn ($14.99)

  • Since one thing I feel I don't have enough of is shorts, these made the list simply because they are so different and fun.

Some closing notes:

  • Before I sign off I just wanted to let my readers know that as of yesterday my sponsors over at SheIn have started a HUGE site wide sale running through May 23, 2016. So if you love any of the styles you've seen here, you should definitely go check it out!

#OOTD: Secret Garden (Feat. SheIn)

Hi everyone, and happy Monday! Firstly I want to apologize for my recent, unannounced hiatus. Due to my promotion at DSG at the beginning of this year, my work load has increased dramatically and I've been working insane hours! However thankfully, at the end of this month things will be winding down and I'll be back to writing on my normal schedule. 

Anyways, since spring is finally here to stay and summer is approaching quickly around the corner, it's safe to say that my my sweaters are now being neatly tucked away to make room for my array of more season appropriate dresses. 

So I figured what better way to get back in to the swing of things than to kickoff the season with an adorable dress from my sponsor SheIn

The Dress

The reason first I loved this dress from SheIn is simply because of how feminine and pretty it is. Though it's a bit short to be work appropriate, it's absolutely perfect for Sunday brunch or a date strolling around the local public garden. (Unfortunately this dress is no longer available but you can find some more like it here!)

Detailing

Another reason I fell in love with this dress is due to the gorgeous detailing. Each butterfly is just perfectly placed and the pleating on it just creates such a nice, feminine, silhouette. I also have to mention, just like everything else I have received from SheIn, this garment is very well made and fits like a glove!

#OOTD: Perfect Peplum (Feat. Rocksbox)

The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and all the kids are out and about playing all over town. Though it's been spring here in the Burgh for awhile, it seems as though it's finally here to stay judging by the lovely weather we had this weekend. And of course since we had gorgeous weather, that means gorgeous lighting so, I decided what better way to enjoy than with an impromptu photo shoot and showing off my latest Rocksbox set!

The Outfit

Due to my crazy schedule recently, I've been keeping my style much more casual, but this doesn't mean dressing down can't be chic. So, to run my errands about town today I chose to wear one of my favorite pieces, my peplum sweater from J Crew, basic skinnies, and my ever trusty Frye Company flats. This look kept me comfy while doing my leg work throughout town as well as keeping me looking and feeling cool in the 80 degree heat.

Though while my look was quite simple this past weekend, that didn't stop me from dressing it up a bit with my latest Rocksbox set! Which as always, did not disappoint. This weeks box was full of pieces by Jenny Bird and my personal fave, Kendra Scott!

Heart Breaker

While I'm normally one for over the top sunglasses and have many, many pairs, I just simply can't get past my love for heart shaped sunnies! So when I found these gold beauties at American Eagle a few summers back, I just had to snag them. I also thought that they were the perfect choice to add a fun flare to my toned down outfit.

Paired with them in this picture are my Flagstaff earrings by Jenny Bird. I loved these earrings due to their pairing of glam rhinestones with textured metal, needless to say these are a pair I won't be sending back in my box!

Tantalizing Tassels

My favorite piece from my Rocksbox set had to be my Rayne necklace by Kendra Scott. I've had my eye on this bright red beauty for sometime simply because I love how bold this piece is without being to over the top. I also feel like it will make a great addition to some of my work outfits!

1. Anuja Tolia, Crystal Bib Necklace

  • I just thought this necklace was absolutely gorgeous. Though it wouldn't be for every day wear, it'd definitely be divine for special occasions.

2. Kendra Scott, Skylar Earrings in Turquoise

  • I just thought these earrings would be the perfect pop of color some of my work outfits need for spring! I've been such a fan of my other Kendra Scott pieces in the past, these seemed like a no brainer.

3. Jenny Bird, Moonsong Cuff in Silver

  • I just though this simple patterned silver cuff would go so nicely with my more casual pieces. And considering the last cuff I kept was a gold one, I figured I could use a gold one!

4. Jenny Bird, RiRi Collar Necklace in Gold

  • Since I loved my Frida collar, I decided I would love to try another necklace by Jenny Bird. Though this necklace is a little plain, I just loved the subtle edge to it.

5. Melinda Maria, Jennifer Ring in Gold

  • Fun fact: I love rings. And I just thought this one was a perfect everyday, right hand ring!

6. Perry Street, Cicily Necklace

  • I've had my eye on this necklace for sometime now and I have to say I'm impatiently waiting and hoping for it in my next box! The detailing is just so pretty and ornate and the color is so lush. (Lisa, if you're reading this pleaseeee try and get this baby for me!)

7. Gorjana, Layla Small Cuff

  • Okay, so I know I already said I owned a gold cuff, but come on! This one is just to pretty to pass up!

8. Robyn Rhodes, Agate Spear Cuff in Black

  • I'm sure most of you know this by now but in case you don't, I have a deep love for all things nature-y. So needless to say, this rough and rugged cut stone cuff is just calling my name!

9. Kendra Scott, Rayne Necklace in Bright Red

  • As soon as I seen this necklace, I needed it. Being a fire sign, it's no surprise that this gorgeous bright red pendant caught my eye! This is definitely a piece I would not send back with the rest of my box!

10. Loren Hope, Starburst Reverse Cuff in Gold

  • The reason I loved this gold and bronze colored cuff is because I though I would be perfect for both work and play. For work it'd just add enough sparkle to any outfit, and for play the design is just perfect.

11. Sophie Harper, Pavé Circle Drop Earrings

  • Normally I'm not one for pavé jewelry however these earring are just so pretty! I thought they would be great for an around the office look as well as for date night.

12. SLATE, Spiked Out Necklace in Silver

  • Another necklace I just have fallen for. This rocker chic necklace has just the right amount of edge to be paired with my leather jacket and moto pants!
