TopShop shirt | TopShop shorts | Stuart Weitzman wedges 

What else can be said, besides the obvious fact that oversized shirts are everything? I feel like I could wear this shirt to bed, wake up the next morning and throw on a pair of pants to start my day.
Okay, so I didn't actually do that, but I'm just saying that if I ever have a rough day, I'm definitely prepared for it. 
And can we talk about these wedges for a moment? I've never, ever felt so comfortable in a pair of heeled shoes in my entire life. Best summer investment ever.

American Apparel leotard // J Crew hat // custom-made skirt // EXPRESS and H&M jewelry

So, I'm not gonna lie, this skirt is one I stole from my sister's wardrobe. She got it custom-made for herself while she was in Nigeria a few years ago, and it's made of a gorgeous ankara fabric with a cerulean color palette that pretty much goes with anything. I love the mix of the African print on a modern maxi skirt silhouette, so naturally, the only solution to my covetousness was to take this piece out for a spin myself. The verdict's in: I'm officially on the market for a custom-made skirt of my very own.

Once upon a time, it was my last day of college, and I wasn't sure what made me more happy: the knowledge that I'd never have to crack open another overpriced textbook, or knowing that never again would I ever have to don another one of those tacky pearl string necklaces my friends and I had to wear every year for our sorority composite headshots (admit it, you hated them too)...

I honestly never thought I would ever pick up another piece of pearl jewelry ever again... until I started seeing some of these gems popping up online. Pearls are definitely having a moment in fashion right now, and they sure as hell aren't your grandma's pearls! They're youthful and edgy, while still maintaining the timeless element the stones have always been known for. Even better? You don't have to break the bank to own a piece or two! Some of my favorite jewelry pieces are from ASOS, Rue Gembon, NastyGal and AlexMika — all affordable retailers for any budget! Shop some of my favorite pearly whites below:

Reformation "Fontaine" maxi-dress // Birkenstock sandals

If I had the choose one clothing brand to wear for the rest of my life, it would be Reformation — no contest. Their website is like my internet happy place... until the moment I have to will myself to click away instead of making a purchase. Why can't we just have everything we want all the time?

I bought this dress a couple months ago for a summer wedding I attended late last month with my sister. Up until then, it had been hanging pretty in my closet, while I was counting down the days until the wedding, and even more so for the day AFTER the wedding, when I could finally wear it in public on more casual occasions. So far, I've worn this baby three weekends in a row... so yeah, it's getting pretty serious — but what's not to love? I triple dare you to find an outfit that screams "summer" more than a backless floral maxi dress.
