It’s Sundress Season!

Hey friends, I hope you’re all staying well!  I know this time can be difficult, but I’m starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel and I hope you all can as well.

One way for me to look forward and get excited for the summer is sundress shopping! They’re the perfect piece to throw on when you need to look good but you don’t have a lot of time. I found this sundress in an American Eagle store right before Michigan announced it’s stay-at-home order. Thankfully, it’s still available online!

 

Personally, I’m a huge fan of halter top dresses and this one is so comfy! You can adjust the neck however you need to, and the dress doesn’t feel like it’s uncomfortably short. It fluffs out a little at the bottom to give it some shape which I love. Not to mention, this color looks good on LITERALLY any skin tone. WIN WIN WIN.

The shoes really piece this simple outfit together. I’ve been looking for white mule heels since the Fall and didn’t have much luck. Lucky for me, I was on Nordstrom Rack’s website and found a selection of cute mule heels! These ones are from Marc Fisher and they are fun they were originally $160 but I bought them for $70 (56% off!). Although Nordstrom Rack doesn’t carry this shoe anymore, I found similar and very cute options on DSW.

I hope you’re inspired to look for some bright and fresh summer styles for this season. We have so much to look forward to! Stay safe and healthy!

I Finally Tried the ‘Oversized’ Trend

When the oversized T-shirt fad came upon us, I wasn’t ready to jump on board right away. I felt like I would look awkward, and it’s hard to find oversized things that don’t drown me when I try to be a part of the ‘oversized’ trend. Finally, I found a way to style an oversized tee and feel stylish while doing so!

I thrifted my t-shirt for $3. I strongly believe anyone can find a similar tee at a thrift store; there’s no use buying a $20 shirt in a normal store (unless you’re in love with it). I’m convinced there are TONS of big tees out in the thrifting world  that you can find for nothing!

I paired my leather jacket with my tee because it gave me a little shape. Alas, I bartered for that jacket at a vintage market (and got it for a steal) but I found a similar jacket from Zara that I would buy in a heartbeat if I didn’t have this one!

I layered my tee with a thin long sleeve from Forever 21. I use this shirt for SO MANY OUTFITS. If I could recommend anything, it would be to buy a bunch of neutral, form-fitting shirts to layer other pieces you find. Then, you can wear ‘summer’ clothes even when it’s freezing!

I gave my outfit a little bling with some silver hoop earrings I found at Target. They’re very affordable and comfortable! I’m a big fan of silver jewelry, and these add the perfect detail without taking attention away from the outfit.

My skinnies are from American Eagle. I still can’t recommend the quality of American Eagle jeans enough. They last for a long time and they’re super comfortable. In addition, they’re always affordable, especially since AE has jean sales frequently.

My boots were found at TJ Maxx, but I found a pair from DSW that are almost exactly the same and have a cute detail by the heel! I’m in LOVE with this pair.

Overall, I never thought this combination would work out, but it gave me a rebellious, sassy look that I’m not usually capable of! I had a lot of fun styling this outfit and it’s such a simple look!

Good luck with your oversized outfit endeavors! You got this!

Try My Outfit:

Simple Summer ‘Fit

Hey guys!  Michigan is finally heating up, thank goodness! I’m so ready to grab my beach blanket and tan by the lake all day!

I’ve been looking for simple but cute summer outfits that don’t require a lot of thought. I’m definitely more of an autumn fashion gal so I needed to up my wardrobe game for the summer! This outfit is really affordable and you can wear it just about anywhere this summer!

My top is from American Eagle. It’s now on sale and SUPER CHEAP and it’s one of my favorite tops I own! I love high neck pieces and a denim top is so different than anything I have in my closet. (It’s also not that pricy even when it’s not on sale.)

My shorts are from Old Navy and I bought them last summer. They have the exact same style of mine in a different color for this season. I also found a pair of shorts from American Eagle with the same color as the ones I’m wearing, but a high waist instead. Both are super cute options to pair with the top!

Lastly, my shoes are from Eastland Shoes. Honestly, I like this brand way more than Birkenstocks. I have pretty  wide feet and even Birkenstocks are way too wide for me. Eastland’s fit super well on my feet and the bottoms are made of memory foam so they’re SUPER comfy. They’re also way more affordable than Birkenstocks and in my opinion, better quality.

I can’t wait to share more with you as the summer moves along. As always, thanks for reading and enjoy the beautiful weather!

Thermal Season

Yay, I am so glad to be back and writing about fashion again! My life has been SUPER crazy in the mixture of auditions and performances, and it feels good to have a bit of down time now.

I pulled out my thermal shirt because I love the texture of it, and it’s great to layer under sweaters or anything bulky! This thermal in particular is fun because of it’s bell sleeves and it flows a lot, making it so comfy to wear! My top is from Free People, and I got it from Nordstrom Rack, but they still have it in other stores too!

 

My bralette is from Aerie, and it is SO comfortable and affordable! They look so cute under basically any top. I love Aerie bralettes and the company in general because they support women of every race, body type, and include beautiful ladies in wheel chairs. I love supporting companies that support everyone, not just the stereotypical model. Brynne-53.jpg

My pants are from Francesca’s, but they are out of stock. I love the look of these pants, but in all honesty they’re not super stretchy besides the waist, which overstretched and won’t go back to where it was. I linked a pair of American Eagle camo pants I found because they’re soooo cute, on sale, and American Eagle jeans are so stretchy and always stay in the same size they were made.

My shoes are from the brand Wolverine. I got them at Nordstrom Rack which sells discounted Wolverine boots from time to time because they are initially very expensive. They don’t have the boots I bought anymore, but I’ve linked a similar pair from DSW below that are just as cute!

My earrings were a gift from my birthday, but you can find gold hoop earrings just about anywhere! Personally, I love Madewell jewelry so I linked their hoop earrings at the bottom because they are SO cute!

Lastly, my necklace is from Lucky Brand, but I got them when TJ Maxx was selling their jewelry for a short period of time. I found a beautiful feather necklace on Etsy that’s even more affordable than mine and is so pretty.

As always, I hope you have a wonderful day, stay warm, and cross your fingers for Spring weather to come soon!

Grab Your Sweater, It’s Chilly Season!

How’s it going friends? The New Year is off is a crazy start and it’s only been a couple weeks! I feel as if I haven’t gotten a break yet, but as Gloria Gaynor says, “I will survive!” The weather has been chill out and all I’ve wanted to do is to lay in sweat pants and a sweatshirt all day and watch Netflix. It can be so hard to be productive and want to get things done in the winter slump, but I’ve found a fun way to look cute and stay warm!

My sweater is from Pull and Bear, and I bought it from TJ Maxx! I am in love with this sweater because it is SO soft and cozy! It’s really comfortable and effortless to throw on with a pair of jeans, yet it still looks elegant and put-together. The color is great and looks good on anyone. (Gotta love those jewel tones!)

 

 

My necklace is from Altar’d State and sadly they aren’t selling it anymore but I really love the necklaces that they have. Their jewelry is very affordable, well-made, and super cute! Their longer necklaces would be really cute paired with this outfit.

My jeans are from American Eagle, and the light wash is a great contrast to the dark shade of blue from the sweater. The rips are a fun use of texture, but it was definitely chilly to wear these during a snowfall! I’m looking forward to using the jeans more in the Spring and Summer.

brynne-30

My boots are also from TJ Maxx, and I’ve found some very similar pairs on DSW’s website which I will list down below! Honestly, I love these shoes so much because they really continue the line of your leg and they carry over to any season of the year!

As much as the snow is beautiful, I’m really looking forward to some warmer days ahead of me! I can already see the green grass, blue skies, and warm, sandy beaches like mirage in all of these blizzards… We got this!

As always, have a lovely night!

Patterned and Textured Winter Outfit

The snow is finally coming down in Michigan and it’s getting really chilly! Although the winter months can be hard to get through sometimes, I really love a fresh snowfall. brynne-54My top is from Madewell, and it’s on sale right now which is a big plus! I love this top because I can wear it in the summer and winter as it has darker colors mixed in with a short sleeve. I love the slight pleats and the flare at the bottom. Not to mention, the little stars are such a fun pattern!

My cardigan is by the crochet artist London Kaye which I got at TJ Maxx! I love the confetti looking dots on the cardigan that you can see if you look closely. I had a lot of fun mixing it with my top because I could mix around the fun patterns and texture. The sweater is a little different than just a solid color, but doesn’t clash with the top.

My jeans are from American Eagle and they’re technically considered to be jeggings. I love their fit and the distressed denim makes them edgy and casual. The light wash makes for a great contrast next to my top.

Lastly, I got my boots from TJ Maxx as well. I’ve wanted knee-high boots for so long and I finally found a pair that was affordable! They go so well with my jeans because they fit over them nicely and the boots have a little bit of wrinkling at the top which adds a little texture and space to the boot. brynne-57When I first put this outfit together, I didn’t think it was going to work well. But I surprised myself when I put it on my body! It’s funny how I really can’t visualize some things until I wear it. It was so fun to mix and match to further my fashion palette!

As always, I hope you are having a wonderful day! Remember to stay warm and drink lots of hot chocolate!
