I know I've been pretty MIA for the past week...school's getting super busy with end-of-semester projects, papers due, and exams coming up! But nonetheless, I've been trying to edit pictures, and I will have more posts coming up in the next couple days, so keep on reading! I really appreciate all the support I've gotten so far :)

So if you've been following all my posts, this is my last picture from the promised three I said I'd post from the photo shoot I did with my friend. I love finding different ways to style my clothes so one piece can be used in various outfits but appear as if it's a different article of clothing (i.e. the lace dress I am wearing in this outfit). One of my favorite looks is layering a cropped sweater over dresses, but I'm not one to buy super cropped sweaters either because I feel like they're not something I would get much wear out of. This particular sweater is from urban outfitters, and I absolutely love the print of it. It is one of my shorter sweaters, but it still wasn't cropped enough for my taste, so I cinched it in with a thin yellow belt, which is a perfect complement to the navy blue/purple. I thought the turquoise necklace was also a nice contrast against the sweater and the belt, and I actually really love this outfit. The shoes are not pictured, but I have the same Sam Edelman military boots from the previous outfit below. 

Let me know what you think, and if there is anything you'd like me to feature on my blog leave a comment below!

The Webster at Target










Photos courtesy of  Target

On May 6, Target will be releasing it's first collaboration from it's new concept, The Shops at Target both online and in-stores. They are collaborating with a well known boutique from Miami called The Webster, and creating a line is called The Webster at Target. Unlike many of the previous collaborations that Target has done, such as the Jason Wu for Target line that released back in February, The Webster at Target will include much more than clothing and accessories for women. The collection will also expand into children's and men's fashion, with prices ranging from $7.99 to $49.99

Above are a few pieces from the Target Lookbook that I personally adore (And yes, I want that color-blocked cardigan in both color combinations!) Their line includes apparel, shoes, handbags, jewelry, and swimwear, all with a very South Beach and tropical vibe. The first thing I think when I see these prints and colors is "island getaway". 

To see more from the lookbook, check out the entire collection here. Don't forget, this is a limited edition collection, and if it's anything like the Jason Wu collection, it'll be gone within the hour after Target opens on the morning of May 6, as I've learned from personal experience. Which pieces are you eyeing? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading!

XOXO,

The day of the photo shoot, my friend and I headed into the city for the first part of the day. It was a pretty chilly day and we actually ran into a couple showers while traipsing through the city, so I was really glad I brought along my rain coat.

This outfit has a bit more of an edgy look than I typically go for. Instead of layering a crop top baggy sweater over my romper, I decided to pull on a light-wash denim shirt that I purchased years ago during my Hollister phase and tie it in the front. I thought it would be a nice way to break up the romper and wear it as a transitional piece while the weather is still too cold to breakout my summer dresses and floral prints. I also think that this look without the tights and boots would've just been an utter mess. However, the style of the tights and boots could always be replaced with either patterned tights or black boots. And as usual, the necklace really adds a little bit more to the whole look - I typically don't like leaving the house bare-necked, and if you haven't noticed, I love wearing my necklace outside the collar of my shirts.

Feel free to leave any comments down below, and if you're interested in seeing some posts about make-up related items and reviews, let me know!

Thanks for reading, and talk to you next time my lovelies!

Trending: Neon Yellow - Statement Necklaces









Ever since spring hit, I've been on the hunt for the perfect neon yellow necklace. This season it's all about the eye-catching brights to tie your look together. It's bold and a bit daring, but when paired correctly it brings your outfit to a whole new level. It's a great contrast piece against a solid backdrop of black, gray, or blue, but if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, I think it looks beautiful against any shade of turquoise or a neutral pink/peach like in the last outfit shown. Just remember, if you're going with color, don't go too crazy - stick with two complementary colors and keep the rest basic!

Til next time, and keepin' it classy.

XOXO,
E ♥

Wild Flowers



CORAL TOP FROM CHICO'S, KHAKI SKINNIES FROM ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH, YELLOW BELT FROM JASON WU FOR TARGET, KATE SPADE LOVE NOTES BOW RING, MICHAEL KORS "BLAIR" WATCH, NECKLACE FROM FOREVER 21, BOOTS BY SAM EDELMAN
Photography by Joy Sun

I wore this outfit to a shoot my friend asked me to do for her. I had three changes of clothes, and this specific one was inspired by one of the biggest trends this spring: color blocking and bright pastels. I love the coral of this shirt against the yellow belt, and the floral necklace goes perfectly with the palette of the outfit, while balancing out the rugged boots by adding an elegant and chic touch. The boots by Sam Edelman were one of my staple pieces through the winter, and I plan on getting more wear out of them as we hit early spring! 

If you want to see the other two looks I put together, keep following as they will be up soon! Thanks for reading and stay tuned my lovelies!

XOXO,
