How To Grow Your Instagram

Hey hey! Happy Friyay. Today I’m going to touch on a topic I get asked about a lot –  “How do I grow my Instagram following?”

I’m excited to cover this topic because I know so many of you guys are interested in it. And I want to preface this by saying, this is totally a personal decision. The way I grew my following and the ways I continue to grow my following reflect my personal ideals, goals, and opinions. Others may use other methods – and that’s totally fine. These are just the things that have worked for me and the things I agree with! Anyways, let’s get into it!

Mix n Match

You guys know I’m all about a good pattern play mix up, so when I received these amaziiing green faux snakeskin thigh highs I was not about to play them down with neutrals. Nope. Instead I went the complete opposite direction and added as may patterns as possible. Just kidding. It wasn’t that much. But it definitely wasn’t subdued either.

Anyways, I decided to go with a green graphic tee from Day Dreamer LA, which by the way has the comfiest tees of all time. And because I’m thoroughly obsessed with gingham I threw on my new favorite skort from Go Jane. I also paired it with these killer rings from Glam Rocks Jewelry. I’m obsessed with everything in this look. Its fun, funky, and different.

What’s Up For The Weekend (Week)

With the Fourth of July falling on a Tuesday I feel like it’s allowing me the longest weekend ever.

We’ve got plans to hit up a few lakes, visit with family and friends, and of course create a little content. The fun never ends but the grind also never stops. Because I’ll be traveling for most of the weekend I’m not sure how active I will be able to be on social. Due to reception, socializing, and too many margs I may find myself without my phone for most of the trip.

However I will still try to keep and touch and up to date. Follow along on instagram to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun!

Have a great holiday weekend and be safe babes! Xx

Spring 2017 Look Book: Gingham, Dusty Pinks, and Stripes


Look 1: Spring Dress, Gingham Style

When I first saw this dress I literally thought to myself “that dress is sooo Spring!” What says Spring style more than a cute gingham sundress? Nothing.

This dress is basically the epitome of Spring, therefore I knew I had to include it in this look book! As you have probably noticed gingham is totally trending this Spring, and I have zero issues with that. Gingham is a classic, chic, and playful pattern that is totally killin the game right now. Wether you choose to have a full on gingham ensemble or mix and match it with various textures and tones you are sure to be fashionable while sporting this print. In fact, it’s such a hot trend that you’ll notice below I had to include it twice in this look book. It’s basically the star of the show 😉

Not only did this dress remind me of Spring when I first laid eyes on it but it also reminded me of a picnic. Naturally this made me want to shoot this look in an open, airy, beautiful grassy area. This dress would be perfect for plenty of spring occasions. From grad party to romantic picnic this style would be a great fit for the occasion. I paired it with this brimmed hat, some black mules, a ruffled choker, and a chic watch. Simple, classic, and playful! A perfect look for Spring 2017!

Look 2: Mix and Match Sets

It’s no secret that I’ve been quite fond of sets over the past few seasons. And nothing about that is changing. But I have decided to mix it up and break away from the matchy matchy sets and veer off into the world of mix and match. At first I was very tempted to create monochromatic matching looks when browsing spring styles. But then I remembered how much I love the patterns of Spring and that I wanted to incorporate those in with some of the staple colors of Spring 2017. That’s how this look was born.

Again, I was inspired by the sort of playful, classic, chic trends that are popping up everywhere this Spring. These dusty pink shorts had Spring written all over them. I also love the scalloped detail as it adds a feminine touch. The high waist is also a great way to add some flare to the look. They are absolutely adorable and super fun. They are perfect for a fresh Spring look. I decided to pair them with this gingham off the shoulder crop, because obviously I’m obsessed with gingham. I threw on a few chokers, my watch, a little black bag, and some flatforms to really bring the whole look together. This look is super fun and flirty and would be perfect for any upcoming Spring events you might be planning!

Look 3: Stripes and Silk

This last look is probably the most classic of all three. Everything about it is basically timeless. In my book a striped trouser is never going to go out of style, and neither is a silky off the shoulder blouse. And although they are never off trend, they are mega on trend right now.

A crisp white trouser with a dainty stripe is the perfect mix of classic and trendy that will make any Spring look really come together. I decided to wear this dusty pink off the shoulder silk number to add a bit more of a feminine flare. This look is pretty effortless looking while still being very chic and very put together. It would be a great look for any upcoming brunches, bashes, etc. I also paired it with my mules (yet again) because they are the perfect Spring 2017 shoe. They are fun and flirty with their block heel and peep toe, but they are chic and classy as well. I added this choker for a bit of an edgy element, threw on my rose gold watch, and called it a look!
