Comfy and Chic

The Florida Keys are all about relaxation and comfort. But I believe you don't have to compromise appearance to reach a high comfort level. You can be comfortable and still look polished and put together at the same time. 
Anyone that lives or has visited the Keys knows theres bicycles everywhere and everyone uses them. So I thought my dads vintage bicycle combined with this outfit was appropriate for this post to show that you can look cute and enjoy a bike ride at the same time. Let's talk gladiator sandals for a second, definitely a hot trend right now. Whether they're ankle high or knee high, choose a style and get a pair. They look hot with shorts (for this heat) or a cute little dress. These JustFab gladiators are surprisingly comfortable. I honestly was hesitant to purchase them but I'm so glad I did. I highly recommend them as they are comfortable and affordable. A simple flowy top and shorts can go a long way if you accessorize them. And you don't need to spend a fortune to do so. Here is a breakdown of my total cost for this outfit:

Top: $22 (via Hautelook)
Shorts: $9 (Dream Out Loud via Kmart)
Hat: $5.99 (Bealls Outlet)
Sunglasses: $4.95 (H&M)
Bracelet: $3 (Bealls Outlet)
Total without sandals: $44.94
Sandals: 39.95 (via Justfab) (Much more affordable than many gladiator sandals)

Total including shoes and all accessories: $84.89

I would say thats a bargain for an entire outfit. Especially for pieces that are versatile!

Have a great day!

Mixing Prints

Happy Thursday! It's almost Friday and I couldn't be more excited for the upcoming weekend. Its going to be full of activities! So Im definitely looking forward to it. 
I was playing around with this raffia belt after I used it for the jumpsuit the other day and I loved the way it looked with this adorable, perfect for this heat, romper. When mixing prints, try to keep at least some similar colors even if they might be different tones. For example, here I kept the coral color in the romper and just amped it up a bit with the brighter coral of the belt. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
