What's not to love about matching sets? They are the stylish cousin of the basic one piece and the easiest to wear. You don't always have to buy them as sets. I created my own with pieces that can easily transition from the unpredictable cool/hot weather we have here in California with a knit cover up.

I'm currently trying to clean out my closet and dreading it. I will be donating as well as selling/trading at Crossroads Trading. Check out their new mail in option and get a free selling bag with pre-paid postage here http://crossroadstrading.com/?sellbymail=1 
I know I'll definitely be using it when I don't have time to drop off my bags.

Celebrating summer spirits with tropical prints and watermelons. This outfit made me realize the convenience of rompers hence my current gravitation towards them. 
Wish I was looking out into a body of water surrounded by palm trees rather than a sea of buildings but this view isn't so bad either.

I partnered with Dahlia to show you how to style the adorable Carmen blouse three different ways.

Outfit #1: A plain blouse is like a blank canvas which means you can get creative with your accessorizing! I decided to tie a bow with a piece of fabric I had for a vintage look. I completed the retro school girl look with Jeffrey Campbell Tardy that I found from Crossroads and a boater hat.
Outfit #2: The blouse is oversized but still not long enough to wear on its own. I chose a dress that was slightly longer than the blouse and a laser cut hem so that it can peek out underneath.
Outfit #3: Probably my favorite look, I paired the blouse with denim cutoffs and thigh highs. The girly lace hem with the grungy platforms and thigh highs create the perfect balance.

Which one is your favorite look? Let me know in the comments and I would love to know how you would've styled this blouse differently :)

This lace up dress gives me vibes of 70s rock, Woodstock and desert gypsies which is everything I want in a dress, partially because it gives me serious wanderlust. Who says fringes should only be for festival season? But then again, I would be okay with dressing like this year round.

This year, I've vowed to refrain from impulse buying (still trying) and buy key pieces that are timeless rather than trendy. It's difficult as a blogger to resist buying new pieces when you're constantly having to reinvent your wardrobe. I have partnered with Starbucks Iced Coffee to show how I'm preparing for Summer by incorporating some of my favorite pieces from last year. My wardrobe refresh consists of a simple chambray sleeveless top that is neutral enough to pair with any given piece. I'm wearing one of my favorite turbans that is several years old and it's been the perfect summer accessory. I've worn it to class, musical festivals, barbecues, pool parties, and as an everyday wear. The new pieces I'm wearing are shorts from Forever 21 and sandals form Koolaburra. The floral shorts have been my go-to shorts lately. I love the crochet hem and how easy it is to wear. My lace up sandals from Koolaburra have adorable cut outs and they are mint! My favorite color.

Thanks to Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee for keeping me energized and refreshed throughout the day! I need my daily caffeine fix and these bottles have saved me while being on the go. Bottled Starbucks Iced Coffee beverages are the perfect blend of premium Starbucks coffee and 2 percent milk. Available in four delicious offerings: Coffee + Milk, Low Calorie Coffee + Milk, Vanilla, and Caramel, Starbucks Iced Coffee ready-to-drink beverages are the perfect on-the-go refreshment to get you through the daily commute, big projects such as spring cleaning, or an exciting road trip with friends. Look for it at major grocery and convenience stores, available nationwide. 
I hope this post has inspired you guys to also refresh your wardrobe with old pieces and to remix old x new.
