A woman should always exude confidence, and I feel most confident in white lace. White is the opposite of what I usually wear, and the lace makes me feel like I’m in a french movie. The Texas heat is no joke, so you can catch me relaxing in my lace lingerie after a cool bath. You can check out one of my favorite Adore Me lingerie piece here (hint: it’s a one-piece, and its ultra hot). If you haven’t had enough, you can look through pages of confidence boosting lingerie here. What’s your #sexysummerylingerie?

TOP C/O GAMISS (HERE)
LEVIS / THRIFTED
SNEAKERS/ ADIDAS ORIGINALS
PATENT HANDBAG / DIOPHY
Another white and denim combo, yes. Slowly moving away from black clothes, and I’ve even been looking into buying a grey-blue bomber *thinking emoji*. This top is only one of the many off shoulder tops I’ve accumulated lately. If you follow me on instagram, you know that it all started with a black top from H&M. This one in particular is really feminine and I’ve received a lot of compliments on it. Would you believe its only $7 dollars? Betta believe it.
CHOKER C/O LESS LEATHER (HERE)
In my opinion, chokers have a subtle romantic flare to them. They actually say that the most beautiful part of a woman’s body are shoulders, collarbones and neck. My new favorite choker, from Less Leather, has a simple design that contrasts great with just about everything you wear. In this post I focused more on the choker itself, without any distractions. Because I was feeling a bit romantic when I was editing these photos, I added a new filter by VSCO and Taku, which reflects exactly that: dark romance. Listen to what I was listening to while editing these photos below, and follow Less LEathers Instagram @LessLeather!
DENIM MINI c/o GAMISS (here)
BUTTON UP/ FOREVER 21
BUCKLE CHOKER/ EBAY (here)
I love distressed denim, period. Jeans, shorts, and now skirts. This skirt from Gamiss has become my favorite because of the frayed hem. Its a minor detail but it definitely makes a difference. The beauty about denim is that you can wear it a million ways: I would switch out the button up for a black bodysuit and a biker jacket, for example. Speaking of black, I was also drawn to this skirt while browsing the site. It also has a raw hem, but the white stitching is what makes it unique in my opinion. Moving on to my buckle choker, which I bought because I really wanted the AYAI Katya Choker. I found this super ultra cheap alternative on Ebay, yeah I said it.
More from Gamiss coming soon, and it is also white. Major hint alert. Keep up with Gamiss on their Facebook and Pinterest!
CALIFORNIA SUNGLASSES c/o POLETTE (here)
When you want something so bad, I swear. Just a couple posts ago I was talking about how I wanted sheer tint sunglasses (couldn’t decide between baby pink or baby blue), and now I own a pair. The color isn’t something I would normally go for, which was a scary but exciting choice for me. Like I’ve told you all, aswell as myself, sometimes I bore myself because my closet is one big heap of black. I cant wait to wear them with an all black look though, so they can POP. Polette sells designer’s frames from $6.99 to $49.99, and anti-reflective and anti-scratching coating lenses from $9.99 to $75. Still curious about Polette? There are a couple of interesting things you should know:
- They came all the way from Amsterdam.
- Polette not only offers a variety of sunglasses, but they also have an array of actual reading glasses to pick from. Shop one of my favorite frames DEAN (here).
- All Polette frames and lenses are provided straight from their workshops, which suppresses the cost of intermediates.
Found a pair you like? If so, I’m happy to announce that I will be hosting a contest in collaboration with Polette! Stay tuned for further details on how you can win an exclusive 50% off voucher.
I love women’s clothing, but if I like something from the men’s section I have absolutely no shame. This denim jacket is the perfect example. Unfortunately I’m a #brokegirl, but fortunately I am determined. I’ve found two alternative options which would require a DIY (which I don’t mind).
My favorite is option 1, but it is sold out in medium. I’m praying for a restock! Although the GUCCI denim jacket is embroidered, you can easily buy some patches on Amazon to achieve a similar look. I can’t wait to try this out myself.
DRESS/ ZAFUL (HERE)
HEELS/ PUBLIC DESIRE
Back again with Zaful on today’s post! I know I don’t frequently wear colors, but this little dress caught my eye, and it caught Zuri off-guard. Off shoulder tops and dresses have been getting some hype, so I decided to try them out for myself. As you may or may not know, I am short (5’2 but my license says 5’1, whatever). because I am petite, I usually shy away from dresses that are not bodycon. I feel that my shape gets lost, so I tend to balance a baggy top with some nice Levi’s shorts, for example. This dress, on the other hand, was the perfect length for me, and the off shoulder details distract from the fact that is a relatively loose dress. It also has some flattering slits on each side, which I personally loved. The fabric was light and perfect for the Texas heat. Hallelujah.
Side Note: I recommend that you read the measurements, and pick the sizing accordingly.
