Disney Darling

IMG_7680.JPG

After learning that LeBron James is leaving Cleveland to play for the Lakers, the one thing that would cheer me up most would be another trip to Disneyland. However, I can’t be too upset because LeBron delivered his promise, he still loves his city, he still plans to continue his fundraising foundation, and he will eventually come back for good someday, whether as a returning or retiring player. He is still the king of Cleveland no matter where he goes! But I still want to go back to Disneyland to cheer myself up.

Speaking of Disneyland, I have a new outfit to share with ya ... my Disneyland outfit!

This red polka dot romper from Francesca’s was a gift from my parents for my 22nd birthday. I had already planned my outfit for our trip to Disney prior to May 20th (my birthday), but then I totally changed my mind when I received the romper. It’s so adorable, so fun, and its red and white polka dot design resembles something that Minnie Mouse would totally wear! It made perfect sense.

I finished the look with my super comfortable red sneakers from Vionic Shoes (I highly recommend wearing this brand for long days consisting of walking and standing in lines nonstop!), a gold layered choker necklace from Francesca’s, my sunglasses from Ray-Ban, and, of course, my darling Minnie Mouse ears headband.

I’m most definitely a full on Disney darling!

It was a perfect, thrilling, and enchanting day. I felt like a princess! Of course, until the stroke of midnight when I turned back into a peasant college student ...

Catch Ya on the Flippity Flop

Happy Saturday! 

The title of this post is so relevant because I'm sharing a new pair of flip flops from Vionic by Lucky Shoes! Online dictionaries define the term "flippity flop" as "with a flip and a flop", such as tumbling down the stairs. For this case; however, I'm referring to my new chic shoes!

I collaborated with Vionic back in February for their "Discover The Secret" campaign, and I'm happy to announce that I'm collaborating with them again this June! I'll give you more details and insight about it later on in the post, but first I'm gonna tell you about my new bad boys (shoes). 

I absolutely adore these sandals. They are by Vionic Shoes and are called Farra sandals. I love the red shiny material, but the best and most unique feature is the disc-ornamented gold. I feel like Cleopatra! Not only are the shoes super comfortable but every strap is adjustable with hook-and-loop closures, including the back strap! And even better yet, they match perfect with the shirt and shorts I'm wearing (both from J. Crew). That's always a nice perk.

And since I got the shoes and took these pictures on National Wine Day, a glass (or three) of oaky 2016 Resolute Chardonnay was a necessary treat!

Now coming back to the collaboration announcement. I have some exciting news for you shoe lovers ... Vionic by Lucky Shoes has opened their second store in the USA at Crocker Park in Westlake, OH! The first store opened in 2017 at Fairlawn. They're also hosting a special opening for their flip flop collection, "Vionic Flip-Flop Day", on June 16th, and I'm one of the local Cleveland fashion bloggers that gets to attend the big event!

I'm super thrilled to be a part of this, especially since I love Vionic and their products. The event is going to be spectacular and filled with tons of excitement. Liam Bourke, the on-air personality for Vionic, will be in attendance for an exclusive meet and greet. Guests will also receive a premium gift with any Vionic shoe purchase, while supplies last. Overall, it's going to be an amazing experience and I hope anyone who will be in the Cleveland area at the time will show up. It'll be a blast, and you can never say no to comfortable stylish shoes! Style doesn't have to hurt!

Caroline's ZAFUL Wishlist

Summer is just around the corner, and it's coming in HOT! 

That means it's about time to start shopping for some new apparel to show off your sun kissed skin. That's why I'm loving ZAFUL and the variety of chic outfits they have to offer. They also come in cheap prices, which is even better. You're more likely to find the hottest summer deals on ZAFUL than anywhere else!

Now I'd like to share with you some of my favorite outfits on my summer shopping wishlist of 2018: 

1.) Two-Piece Set

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 10.21.48 AM.png

This stripes cross over top and wide leg pants set is one of the site's newest arrivals and already a super popular item. Obviously because it's super funky and super delicate at the same time. It makes me want to go to an outdoor music festival!

2.) Swimsuit (One Piece)

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 10.09.53 AM.png

One piece swimsuits have grown on me during the last few years. I used to be uncomfortable wearing them as a kid, mostly because they felt too tight on my skin. But now I can't get enough of them. I love this plunge bralette stripe swimsuit with a few bright colors from the rainbow. It's so fun, adorable, sexy, and perfect for summer. It looks kind of patriotic as well, just in time for a Fourth of July pool party!

3.) Swimsuit (Bikini)

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 12.27.39 PM.png

I'm obsessed with marble print, whether on electronic devices or clothes. This marble print high waisted bandeau bikini set is perfect and adorable for my style, I'm all about it. The texture looks so smooth!

4.) Cropped Tee #1

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 12.21.19 PM.png

Ever since last summer, I've been wanting to get a criss cross knotted top since it's very trendy. I really like this knotted plunging neck teeit looks like a good size and I love the army green color. I could wear it with ripped boyfriend jeans, denim shorts, and skirts! 

5.) Cropped Tee #2

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 12.47.23 PM.png

This gingham off shoulder top is super trendy and stylish, so of course this is on my wishlist as well. I love how the model is wearing white jeans with it, it looks so classy and hip! There's so many fun ways to style this top. It's definitely a must-have!

6.) Mini Dress

Red is no doubt one of my favorite colors, so I'm definitely a sucker for this knotted overlap ruffles mini dressLook at how darling it is! Perfect for a date night out at the beach with a fancy margharita! 

7.) Maxi Dress

Screen Shot 2018-05-05 at 10.13.30 AM.png

A new maxi dress is almost necessary for every summer, which is why I'm loving this bow tie cami striped maxi dress. Not only could I wear it to outdoor parties or trips to the farmers market, but I can also wear it to work with a nice jacket. Works well for any occasion! 

So, what do y'all think about my summer wishlist? Yay or nay? Either way, I'm proud of the items I picked out! Let me know in the comments if you have shopped at ZAFUL before and what your favorite outfits are!

Hoppy Easter

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday filled with love and blessings!

Easter definitely ranks in the top three for favorite annual holidays (Christmas and Independence Day being the other two). It's an amazing celebration, especially because we get to honor our Savior Jesus Christ who sacrificed His own life and freed us from the sinful chains! I love spending the holiday by going to church, going to visit my family for dinner, and of course watching adorable kids hunt for pastel eggs. 

What I also love about Easter is that it's held at the beginning of springtime. Though I'm more of a summer and fall loving girl, I appreciate spring with all my heart. The weather is mild, flowers are finally blooming, and my birthday takes place during this season! And of course, as a style blogger, I have to share a new favorite outfit for the springtime!

I just recently bought this new floral maxi dress and olive green crossbody bag from Francesca's, one of my top favorite retailers. They just opened up their spring style collection and they have a variety of pretty outfit pieces, it was hard to choose what to buy without spending too much money! Before trying the maxi dress on, I wasn't sure if it was going to look good on me. But then I tried it on and I felt really good in it! It's so darling, comfy, chic, and perfect for spring. I love the floral design, and my hot pink nails match perfectly with it! 

My mom found the bag while I was trying clothes on and told me to wear it with the dress. It matched so well, and the olive green color makes it match with a lot of other colors. Again, perfect for spring!

Of course, I can't leave out my killer bomber jacket from styleNmotion. It looks so spunky and classy with the dress. It also fits well for the occasion since it's still not quite warm outdoors. 

And you can never go wrong with chic black booties by Steve Madden. This entire outfit makes me feel like I'm ready to go to a Coachella festival!

Bomber on Velvet

When you combine a chic bomber black jacket with a killer velvet skirt, that outfit is quite the BOMB! See what I did there?

This structured black bomber jacket from styleNmotion is my new favorite item in my wardrobe. It goes with everything, it's super comfortable, it's great for every season, and it makes me feel like Sandy Olsson!

I'm obsessed with my midi pink velvet skirt, which I got on sale for $30 at Anthropologie. I saw it a few months ago when it was in store for $100 at full price. I fell in love with it immediately, but at that time I was like "hell, no" when I saw the price tag. I lucked out when I found out it was finally on sale, I didn't even hesitate to add it to my checkout! The material is so soft and I love the length. And the little triangular cutout on the bottom right adds a chic touch! 

And of course, you can't forget these bad boys - aka black riding boots - by my girl Lauren at LC Lauren Conrad. I also decided to make the look more unique with tortoise hoop earrings from J. Crew. You gotta mix a classy outfit with a little bit of spunk and boldness once in a while!

Also I want to let you know that tomorrow I am doing my first Instagram takeover for styleNmotion's account! I'm so excited, I've never done any kind of social media takeover before and I get to team up with one of my favorite boutiques. Even better! 

In case you don't know what styleNmotion is, it's a New York City boutique run by my good friend Caitlyn Nystrom, who also happens to be from Ohio! We collaborated back in November for the new winter collection in which I got to model some clothes for their website and keep some to use for my blog. It was a great opportunity, especially since it was first brand collaboration. Now I get to do an Instagram takeover for them! 

So be sure to go follow them at @stylenmotionshop to watch me do some Instagram stories of my outfits throughout the day and keep track with their future posts. You can also shop their clothes on their website right here
