I am thrilled to have recently been invited to be an Aeropostale VIP! I was able to attend the Aero Rocks Fashion event at their Dallas Galleria store yesterday afternoon and got to check out their new fall collection.

Aeropostale's fall line is full of cute outerwear, leather details, denim and a touch of lace. There are also super cute boots and bags that will be perfect additions to your wardrobe! I picked up a few items that I am dying to show you and will be styling as part of my fall preview post series coming up in a couple weeks.

I loved the feel of this denim jacket, and how cute is that bird printed button up underneath?

They have tons of quality denim in a variety of washes. I picked up a great pair of colorblocked skinnies I can't wait to style for you guys!

A leather jacket and cotton blazer with leather details are also great pieces from the new collection.

 My favorite piece was this camo print military-inspired jacket. This is going to be so much fun for fall!

You know how I love nail art, so I was really excited to see a selection of adorable nail stickers and polishes!

Diego helped me out while I was shopped!

Be sure to stop by Aeropostale soon to check out what's new for fall!

A Chambray Collar

 Top- TJ Maxx (similar in black, white), Skirt- Lulu's (similar), Sandals- Target, Watch- Fossil, Bracelet- Target

I hope you all had a great weekend! I spent it taking a little trip to Austin, TX and floating the Guadalupe river, which was so much fun. I definitely want to make it an annual trip!

I bought this shirt knowing I wanted to pair it with my chambray skirt. I love the extra touch of the chambray collar. So fun! I also tried my hand at layering necklaces. They were both pretty dainty so you can see they got a little tangled. I really love my evil eye necklace. I got it this spring at a jewelry shop in Athens, Greece! It was the perfect souvenir.

Work Wear: Black and White

Top- Forever 21, Skirt- Forever 21 (similar), Heels- Zara (similar), Necklace- Baublebar, Watch- Fossil, Bracelet- identical

Black and white is such a easy color combination. I love wearing lots of color to work, but on those mornings where you hit snooze just a few too many times, a black and white ensemble is an easy go to. I added a little color with this pink gem of a necklace from Baublebar.

I'm guest posting on Dayi's blog today. Be sure to check it out!

Summer Lookbook: Maxi Skirt

Tee- Target, Vest- Forever 21, Skirt- c/o Oasap (on sale!), Sandals- Target, Necklace- Jeweliq

A few weeks ago, I featured a maxi dress in a summer lookbook post, but I also had to include maxi skirts as one of my summer staples. A maxi skirt is a little bit more versatile than a dress because you can mix up your top. Last Friday, I styled this Oasap maxi skirt 2 other ways, so you can see there are many ways to style them! I like this skirt because it's flowy and feels flirty and cute for summer. Because it offers more coverage, you can easily transition a maxi skirt into fall when the weather cools off. Keep reading below to see some more options for maxi skirts and how I would style them.

White Out

 Top- Forever 21, Blazer- Primark (similar) Jeans- (similar), Heels- Zara (similar), Watch- Fossil, White Pave Bracelet- Gigglosophy, Pave Bracelet- similar

I love a good monochromatic outfit, and white is just about the easiest color to pull it off with. While other colors come in multiple shades, making it a little tricky to match, white is just good ol' white. I wanted to make this look even more classy by wearing white shoes and jewelry to go with the monochrome theme. Or maybe, I just want to get in as much white as I can before Labor Day! (Though you will catch me breaking that rule anyway. White can totally work for fall and winter.)
