Denim & Neutrals

Denim Jacket // Black V-Neck Tee // Black High Rise Jeans // Steve Madden Shoes // Choker Necklace (sold out) similar here and here


Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a lovely Easter, and spent the day with friends, family, and loved ones!  My last week of junior year has officially begun, and there are only three more days until my summer vacation! Yay!!

Am I the only one currently obsessing over the denim jacket trend?!  They are so chic, and are a staple for each season!  This medium-washed denim jacket is the perfect addition to any outfit, and you can’t beat the price for an incredible quality jacket!  I paired the jacket with a black v-neck tee and my favorite black jeans, and I couldn’t resist wearing my black quilted shoes and choker!  This outfit was giving me serious 90’s vibes, and I was more than okay with it!

I hope you all have the most beautiful Monday, and use this bright and sunny day to set good intentions and to motivate your soul!

Love & Good Vibes

Summer Outfits & Styling Tips!


Outfit 1


There’s nothing I love more than wearing a pretty dress to any occasion!  I absolutely adore this cobalt blue lace dress, and the nude detailing underneath is such a perfect addition!  I paired this dress with my Kate Spade Tote, my J Crew necklace, and swapped out my nude heels for my favorite gold Tory Burch sandals!  I think this outfit is especially perfect for a brunch/lunch date with friends, date night, or for a day in the city!

Alyssa (Somewhere Between Vogue & Van Gogh) wore the most adorable outfit, pairing a classic gray tank with some olive green shorts!  She also added a pop of red/brown with her scrappy sandals, and tied the color in with her tote!  I absolutely loved her simple layered gold necklaces, they definitely tied the entire look together!

Tips & Inspiration!


Summer fashion is all about fringe, pom pom details, pops of color, distressed denim, mule sandals, and the classic light blue cotton top and off-the-shoulder top!  I believe any of these pieces will add so much to your look, and are perfect for this summer’s trends!  Also, when it comes to styling, stick to basic pieces!  A classic pair of light wash or white skinny jeans, basic tees and tanks, and strappy sandals are always a go-to classic summer style!  Basic pieces are also really easy to pair with anything, so adding a cute pair of pom pom sandals or a colorful tote will really elevate your outfit without you spending extra money!

I hope you all enjoyed my summer styling post featuring my best friend Alyssa, and make sure you follow her blog Somewhere Between Vogue & Van Gogh!  She is leaving for France tomorrow, so definitely check out her posts and keep up on her adventures (and incredible style)!  I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday, and I hope the rest of your week is filled with lots of love and good vibes!

xo, Tessa
