Tank top + Bag – JCPenney / Sunglasses + Flipflops – Walmart / Shorts – American Eagle

Happy Monday guys! I recently did some updates on my blog over the weekend. Hopefully, you were able to spot some of the differences! I upgraded from my free plan so now I have much more control over everything (yay!).

As for today’s post – just a quick easy look for a day at the beach! Sullivan’s Island is one of the popular beaches in Charleston. Unlike other touristy attractions around the area, I have always found this place to be extremely peaceful. The wide stretch of flat sand makes it ideal for long walks and it’s also the perfect location to watch the sunset. For my outfit, I wore a basic black tank with a pair of denim shorts. My oversized striped tote bag is fitting for hauling around all my beach necessity – like a good book, towel, and sunscreen. Overall, my look is beyond casual but that’s what makes it great for the beach! ~b

Valentine’s Day is on the horizon so I know a few of you ladies out there have some date night plans. Here’s my take on a casual cute look that’s perfect for any playful rendezvous! ~b

Date Setting:

From comfort classic foods to iconic retro decor, there’s definitely something special about diners. It’s a place that offers a fun experience for everyone making it an ideal spot to share a milkshake or sundae with your significant other. 😉

What I Wore: 

It’s safe to say that the general color scheme for Valentine’s Day revolves around pink and red tones. In this outfit I opted for a blush pink pin-striped top with a comfy periwinkle cardigan. A pair of white jeans complemented well with the lighter hues and to complete the whole look, I put a girly bow in my hair. Soft and sweet, I’m in love with this feminine ensemble!

Warm Glow of Holiday Cheer

BeInspireful - Christmas Town Outfit 1
Cardigan – H&M / Jeans – American Eagle / Boots – Forever 21

Hi guys! It’s the official first post of 2018 and I’m starting it off with an outfit from 2017. Sorry I was MIA, but the holidays kept me pretty busy hanging out with the people I love 🙂 . These photos were taken on Christmas Eve in a little town known as Christmas Town USA. Population 665. The festive town dazzled and twinkled with 500,000 Christmas lights. This is an ongoing tradition within the community since 1956. The holiday lights sparked the streets with pure joy. It was absolutely heartwarming to see how excited all the children were in this glimmering wonderland!

In these photos, I’m posing inside a giant pine tree draped in stringed lights. Not your so average photoshoot – 😉 but I thought they turned out pretty neat! The lights danced and flickered all around me, leaving me a state of happiness. It also provided the perfect backdrop for this impromptu shoot. Anywho, more fun content is coming on the blog and I can’t wait to share them with you guys! In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for reading and stopping by. I am so appreciative for your support. I’m wishing everyone a very bright and blessed year. ❤ ~b

My Go-To Fall Outfit

Demin Jacket – H&M / Jeans – American Eagle / Top – F21 / Plaid Scarf – Kohl’s / Booties – Thrifted

Happy Cyber Monday everyone! Today marks a rare occasion where a Monday isn’t so dreadful – ha! I hope you all had a lovely holiday break with loved ones this weekend. I actually went back to my hometown for a few days. My boyfriend came along to meet my parents as well 🙂 . I’m almost certain that we both gained a solid 5 lbs with all the food my mum fed us with, but it was worth it because home cooked meals are simply the best!

Before we ventured back to Ohio to eat our hearts out, we did a spontaneous photo shoot (my brother helped too!). Living in the South means fall comes a little bit later so we were still able to capture these beautiful vibrant yellow leaves. The fall foliage was the perfect backdrop  because it really made my blue demin jacket popped. Overall, this is one of my favorite fall outfit and therefore my go-to. It is seriously so easy to throw on and makes you look like you kind-of have your life together. Keyword: kind of. In all seriousness though, you can never go wrong with a pair of basic black leggings, causal demin jacket, plain white sweater, and comfy ankle booties. Layering it with a classical plaid scarf helps pull the ensemble together. My go-to fall outfit is down-to-earth and comfortable making it ideal for any cozy fall day. ~b

Casual City Outfit

Top – Kohl’s / Shorts – Forever 21 / Purse – Tory Burch / Sandals – DSW

“Uptown girl, she’s been living in her uptown world”…. 

I’d be lying if I said I never hummed to the tune of Billy Joel when i’m out and about in the city. It’s been my home for the past few months so it naturally became my theme song. The city center park is the perfect go-to spot to people watch. You can find a variety of people here, from casual strollers to spiffy business people. My outfit of the day consist of a traditional pin striped button-up top that is norm for the office. However, I wore a pair of shorts to make the formal top more casual. I also opted for comfy footwear with my strappy gladiator sandals. My classy Tory Burch Mini Robinson satchel refines the look and pulls the outfit together. Sometimes less is more and I love this minimalist sophisticated style. I hope you get inspiration from this outfit and i’ll talk to ya guys next time! ~b

Easy Breezy Park Outfit

Top – LC Kohl’s / Jeans – American Eagle / Sandals – Steve Madden / Crossbody – Modcloth

Hi guys! This is my casual out-for-a-stroll park outfit. It’s an easy effortless look that makes you stylish in a breeze. Here in the South, the temperature is starting to get a bit cooler but definitely not cold enough for a jacket. That’s why I have been opting for long sleeve tops these days. This shirt, in particular, is one of my favorites for a variety of reasons. I absolutely adore the chic peek-a-boo shoulder detailing and the floral/vine-like pattern. I’m also a fan of the material as well.  I have this thing for flowy chiffon fabrics and wear it regularly throughout the year (I just layer a lot more in the winter). To finish off the whole breezy look – I paired it with light washed skinny jeans,  a perforated cross body bag, and some strappy sandals.  Anyways, hope y’all enjoyed this outfit inspiration for the day. I’ll be sure to add some fall fashion soon when the leaves start changing here! ~b
