JUST BECAUSE THESE ARE SO CUTE…

{ white dress here }

This post was inspired by DRESS NUMBER 2!!!

I bought this striped dress & I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW UNBELIEVABLY CHIC it was in person. Likeeeeeeeee guys.

It’s the perfect summer dress. I’ll take an Instagram today to show you.

And then the white dress I’m wearing just kind of gave me the oomph to do a full post. Between the two you can’t go wrong, you know?

Also, to be dead honest, I was looking for inspiration for this post & ended up on this red vixen number ( $63 dollars!! It’s going to sell out in a minute )…& couldn’t NOT buy it for the holidays. SO, I swiftly added it to my ASOS cart & now it’s on its way to me…whoops. I’m planning on wearing black suede pumps & my hair STICK straight. MEOW.

Ok so. These babies are dresses I’d rock any day of the week, rain or shine:

Also, lately I’ve been loving navy so number 5 is pretty damn sassy too.

Anyway, I’d love to hear about your favorite summer dresses? Share some cute ones below. I like simple, fitted, not too short, but not too boring. A pop of color sometimes. Think: lady in the front, party in the back.

Happy Monday! lauryn x

MY FAVORITE DRESSES UNDER $100:


Too Cool For School: BACK TO SCHOOL MUST-HAVES

COOL GIRLS BACK TO SCHOOL GUIDE

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Ok, so I know a lot of you guys are college students & since school is starting soon ( boo! ), I figured I’d put together a little back to school collage.

All of these items are pieces I’d wear, own, or hope to own someday. Every single item I blog about is ACTUALLY STUFF I LIKE & WOULD WEAR. I try to never steer ya wrong.

That being said, check out these goodies ( the retro tee & backpack are life ):

1.} Striped Retro Tee:

This is such a throwback & would look so cute on babe going back to school/college/etc. I would also rock this to work with a little cardigan & oxford shoes.

2.} Snakeskin Backpack:

While looking for back to school stuff for you guys, I accidentally ( whoops ) bought this for myself. Why? Because there are a million snakeskin leather backpacks that are like thousands of dollars & I FOUND THIS ONE FOR $80. It comes in white too but I think I love it in black. Literally guys, this is a legit find…you wouldn’t believe how much designers are charging for backpacks like this one. I’ll be using this for traveling.

3.} White Kicks:

Uhhh because duh. Every girl needs white shoes for school or work. Kendall Jenner was caught recently rocking these white tennis shoes. They’re under $100 ( YES ). When I was in college my feet would get so damn sore because the campus was HUGE. I’m not a girl who wears heels to class, so if you’re like me, check these out. They are totally comfortable ( just got them in the mail a few days ago ) & your feet won’t get sore from walking around campus.

4.} Pretty, Little Notebooks:

Ummm, get in my office. These are full-on the chicest notebooks I’ve ever seen. They’re basically like marble notebooks & I love how they have a little ribbon that holds everything in. So fun for back to school or for a workspace.

5.} The Most Flattering Jeans Ever:

If you’re anything like I was in college ( eer, I’m still like this now too ), you like to stick with what looks good & re-wear it. I would rather have one pair of kick-ass, insane jeans that I wear five times a week than 20 pairs. If you’re more of a legging girl for class, check out these leggings…you’ll never look back. They’re great hangover pants too, lol. Anyway, back to the jeans, these ripped TopShop ones are inexpensive, durable, & make your butt look perky. YES PLZ.

6.} 2016 planner:

I take my planner as seriously as a heart attack. It takes me like 10390258 years to pick the perfect one. It needs to be perfect. After finding this black & white striped one, I have never looked back. If you’re a worker bee, mom, or going back to school, check it out. I’M HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH IT.

& of course, don’t forget your Lisa Frank folder, Trapper Keeper, & Jan Sport. Also, pack sliced apples with raw nut butter & a multi-green Kombucha, HA. Do I sound like a mom? Happy back to school shopping!

My Big Winter Plans (AKA A Roaring Fire, Spiked Hot Chocolate, & Cute Clothes)

Recently HauteLook & Nordstrom Rack approached me to let me know about their North Face end of season sale.

I don’t know about you but I LOVEEEE NORTH FACE for colder weather. And I’m really hoping colder weather is in my near future. Currently trying to convince Michael that we absolutely NEED a cold weather trip. We’ve got a lot of tropical, hot vacations down but I’m very much feeling a ski bunny-esque vacation.

( Mainly because I want to utilize the teal ski Emoji on an Instagram caption, but that’s neither here nor there ).

I envision myself in head to toe North Face, sipping a spiked hot chocolate by the roaring fire after a full day of skiing ( not snowboarding, skiing is sexier to me for some reason ). And naturally, I see myself in Aspen specifically ( take note, hunny ).

Is this just me or does everyone else in the world have visions like this?

Anyway, since this vision is so crystal clear, I naturally jumped at the chance to stock up on North Face. Especially since there’s a end of season sale ( << up to 40% off markdowns!! ). Don’t twist my arm— I LOVE A GOOD SALE.

Here’s a little fun way to style some of these looks too:

These photos are picks of some of my favorites. I leave them lying around the house so Michael can ask “Lauryn, why is there a sweater & a poncho on the floor in the middle of summer?”

I’ll casually laugh & just say: “that’s for our November Aspen trip, babe.”

Gotta plant my winter wonderland seed somehow.

What’s your favorite look out of all these? I think mine is definitely the white sweater with the teal North Face logo ( << $32 bucks! ). I feel like it will go well on Instagram with the teal ski Emoji.

SUMMER PUMPS ♡♡♡

The Skinny Confidential talks shoes!

1 | 2

So! Let’s talk summer pumps! Each summer I like to invest in a pair or two of shoes that SCREAM SUMMMMMMMERTIME! This is primarily because the rest of the year I’m wearing black kitten heels, nude pointers, or sexy white pumps ( also oxfords, but you guys already know my white obsession ).

Anyway, the other day I was picking out my Summer 2015 pop of fun pumps & I figured:

OMG, I NEED TO DO A POST ON THIS.

So here’s my thought process:

1.) I wanted a print but I didn’t want leopard. Leopard is kind of boring me lately. It’s everywhere & it’s also chestnut-y. I’m not a chestnut rustic-ish brown fan. Chestnut reminds me of 1990. Which is fine, but it’s kind of dull if you think about it. Like if the color chestnut were a piece of clothing, it would be socks. Kind of just BLAH, MEH. Not a fan. So leopard is out, black & white kind of zebra print is in ( for me, at least ). These babies are SO fun for summer. The best part is they match with everything because they’re black & white but they’re a print. Think a white linen sundress, 70’s bell bottoms, & even florals. These were my first summer pump purchase.

2.) Second purchase? THESE CORAL NEON STUNNERS. Yummy, right? These are SOOOOO, sooo fun. I wear these all black or ripped jeans & a white tee. Sometimes if I feel like putting a lot of effort in ( rare, ha ) I’ll match my favorite bright coral lipstick to them.

By the way, the reason I’m obsessed with pumps is because they’re very flattering. They make the leg appear longer, the foot appear a little smaller, & they’re feminine. Also, ultimately I’m about comfort ( which is why my oxford obsession runs deep ). I am not comfortable in a super strappy high heels. I feel like I’m walking on stilts. SO. That’s my summer pump story.

Oh! And they’re BOTH 30% off…just saying.

If you have a specific summer shoe, share it below, k?!

Happy Monday, x lauryn


THE HALF YEARLY SALE IS BETTER THAN SEX.

The Skinny Confidential talks sales!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

The Nordstrom sale ALWAYS ROCKS IT. Every single damn time.

“This is shocking— Nordstrom has so many good finds! I can’t believe it!” said no one. Ever.

This is not sponsored either guys, the half yearly sale just really kills it. I actually physically went into Nordstrom this year, which is alarming because my online shopping usually takes precedence over actual, hands-on shopping, ya know? Ok, so here’s what I bought ( P.S. KISS ME LATER BECAUSE ALL OF THESE SNAZZY ITEMS ARE UNDER A HUNDO!!! ):

1.// Because every girl needs a pair of pink pumps for summer…

2.// This midi dress hits the leg in the most flattering place & is kind of the chicest sale item EVER.

3.// A boyfriend is useless unless you can steal his jeans…I kid…but seriously every babe needs to invest in a flattering pair of boyfriend jeans, & these are kinda it. They’re priced right & hit the hip at the most flattering spot.

4.// I’m SOOOO into cowl necks lately. They remind me of Paris/NYC in all the right ways. I bought this loose fitted, juicy one in white…I know, shocking WHITE.

5.// Having an MK & Ash moment with these gold polka dots. I feel like they both ( especially Ashley ) would rock this phone case with bright red, apple nails, you know? Super excited for this pretty case to arrive in the mail!

6.// This white lace dress screams summer 2015, champagne, tennis courts, vodka lemonades, pink & white umbrellas, pool boys, & just overall perfection. Can’t wait.

What are your Nordstrom sale picks?

Since I love this sale, I’ll be sharing my picks throughout the week like I did last year.

Happy Tuesday, xx lauryn
