Outfit Post: Tropical Print Top + Leather Skirt

Last week, I got to talk about some spring and summer essentials on My Carolina Today (view that post here) One of the items was this tropical print tee. Would you believe me if I told you this was from the Nicki Minaj Collection for KMart?!? That's what I love about fashion... there's always a surprise in store! Anyways... I plan on living in it this summer. Why? Because there are so many ways to style it! Here's how I wore it for the segment and the rest of my work day.

Tropical Print Tshirt

Mini Pashli Handbag

Nicki Minaj Collection Mesh Scuba Top

Pleated Midi Skirt with Tropical Print Tee

Tropical Print Top

Sole Society Danielle Sunglasses

Printed tropical scuba tee

Nicki Minaj Collection printed mesh tee (gifted)
Zara coated faux leather skirt (old - almost identical option)
Zara sandals (old - similar style)
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Mini Pashli (splurge option)
Sole Society "Danielle" sunglasses c/o
Caravelle New York gold tone watch

I absolutely love the colors and the print on this tee. It's so bright and summery! But to make it office appropriate, I paired it with a pleated midi skirt and black heels. This kept it dressed up enough for work but still fun and cheeky. If your work doesn't allow open toe sandals, just swap them out for some pumps. 

P.S. I'm REALLY into these fab sunnies from Sole Society. I love the retro-ish shape! So perfect for casual beach days or dressed up occasions. 

Did you guys have a fabulous vacation? I'm still recovering from Key West. Let's just say... I'm not as young as I used to be! Hope you guys enjoyed it - I'm just excited about this 4 day work week. We're already halfway there! Happy Wednesday! xoxo

Outfit Post: Neon Yellow Jacket

I love a great blazer, dark denim and a perfect pair of shoes. This outfit has all those elements, but with a new twist on those classic pieces. A neon colored jacket, destroyed pair of skinny jeans & purple suede sandals, combine together to create a fabulous and casual yet put together ensemble!

Zara neon yellow jacket (almost exact duplicate here)
Zara blouse (old - identical option)
American Eagle jegging in Dark Destroy
Sole Society "Sable" sandal in Lilac
Kendra Scott "Rae" necklace in White Iridescent
Caravelle NY watch in Gold Tone (gifted)
Belliza Knight vintage-inspired ring (gifted)

I know this jacket is about 3 years old, but you won't believe this almost exact duplicate I discovered that comes in 3 different colors. And the price is spot on.

Don't be afraid to mix your color combos up. The black blouse and dark denim help tie in the bright colors nicely, don't you think? 

I hope that you guys are already having a great week. 4 more days and we've reached the 3 day weekend! I don't know about you, but I am really excited about some vacay downtime. Until then, let's plan on having an amazing Tuesday, okay? xoxo

Golden Arrow cuff bracelet (find it here)

Statement jewelry is one of my favorite ways to dress up any outfit - whether it's casual or more formal. A great crystal necklace pairs well with a white tee and jeans. Why not stack on a gold bangle with mixed metals or wear by itself for an eye catching accessory? Day or night, the options from ShinyMix will have your wardrobe and your budget thanking you!

Nicki Minaj "Lattice Halter Jumpsuit" (shop it here)

Nicki Minaj "Mesh Printed Scuba Top" (shop it here)

I know what you were thinking when you first heard Nicki Minaj and clothing line together - can I wear this? Guess what - you CAN! These are just 2 of my favorite items from her KMart collection. A jumpsuit is something every gal should own. It's like wearing pajamas - incredibly dressy pajamas! P.S. Don't forget to check back later this week for 2 ways you can wear this printed scuba top!
