Before we even talk about my outfit, can we please discuss how jealous I am of Taylor's outfit!!! It's pretty much the most perfect July Go-To Outfit ever #jealous

Now onto my (super boring compared to Taylor's) July Go-To Outfit...I picked up this Cynthia Rowley dress on vacation in the beginning of the month & have worn it 3 times since I've been back. The color & pattern is what drew me to it & once I saw the detailing on the back I knew I had to have it. Here I paired it with neutral accessories, but it works just as well with my studded sandals (seen here)! ((PS my hair looks pitiful in these pics, just ignore it!))

New Pure Ice Nail Treatments! I've been using Bottom Line Base Coat to help fill in the ridges on my nails & really love it. It smooths my nail surface so color application is flawless / I've been slowly but surely trying out off of the looks in The New Braiding Handbook! Love this crown braid. / Love the way my skin feels after this Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel / Rose Gold Nails & a Gold Midi Ring  / This Osea Malibu Eyes & Lips Treatment is the newest addition to my night skincare routine.

AERO has officially launched!!!

I've been working with Aeropostale for just about a year & I can't believe how far their clothes have come since I used to wear them in middle school. Say goodbye to logo sweatshirts & polos, and say hello to #AERONOW, the super on-trend yet totally affordable brand! The new site, motto & clothing is amazing and I can't wait to head over to the store to get my hands on some of the brand new items! I picked up this dress & vest a few weeks ago and I could tell by the merchandise in the store that a big change was happening. So happy to be able to work with brands that listen to their consumers and change to fit the needs of them!!

Want to shop AERO for yourself? Enjoy an extra 30% off any single item with code: THIRTY

Just a few of my favorite pieces from #AERONOW

Grown Up "Back to School" Essentials

Just because I'm 26 years old and am not going "back to school" this Fall doesn't mean I don't love the thrill of the Fall & back to school shopping!! There's just something about this time of year, it's almost as if the change of season signifies a start fresh. And lets be serious...a new start needs new clothes!

Here are some of the items I like to kick off the new "school year" with...
Back to School Essentials | #LivingAfterMidnite
Replenishing basics like t-shirts & tanks are a must for me each year! I also love adding a pair of new black skinnies, versatile sunnies & subtle earrings.

Workout gear is up next! Picking up some cute gym clothes that I actually want to wear will make me more likely to make it to Soul Cycle or Pure Barre. Lightweight hoodies, yoga pants, colorful sports bras & neon sneakers are just what my wardrobe is missing!

I'm always lugging around my life in my tote bag, so replacing it once a year is a must! These options in red, blue & tan are nice alternatives to that basic black leather one that everyone has!

Last, but not least, I love to pick up something special that I've had my eye on when the seasons change. A statement necklace, leather sleeve jacket or polka dot keds are fun items that would give my wardrobe a fall refresher!

Girl's Night In

Girls Night In on #LivingAfterMidnite
Sometimes you want to go out...and sometimes (read: most of the time) you want to stay in with your friends. Food, friends & of course wine...lots of wine...are usually on my weekend agenda. My roommate and I kicked off a girl's night in at our apartment with Friends Fun Wine a couple of weeks ago and it was a hit! The name pretty much says it all! Not only does it taste great (the White Moscato was my fav!) it's low-cal (only 75 calories per serving)!

Just sharing some snaps from the party!! #HappyWeekend

Taking outfit photos on vacation is pure torture. Not the actual task of taking them, but the fact that by the time I post them vacation is sadly long gone.

I picked up this easy breezy white chiffon dress right before I left for Florida & it was SUCH a good purchase!! Love the shape, lace detailing on the top & of course the fact that it's white (my favorite summer dress color).

PS totally forgot to take off my ridiculous hot pink Fitbit before we shot these. This just confirms that I 100% need that Tory Burch Fitbit metal bracelet immediately, can someone magically change that 9/30 pre-order date to today!

My go-to Summer hair do is definitely braids!! I'm pretty sure my hair was braided in some way, shape or form at least 75% of last Summer. When I chopped my hair off 10 inches of hair over the Winter I was worried about not being able to do as much with it. Thankfully Ulysses Press sent over this Braiding Handbook with over 60 hairstyles for me to try out!! Each style has easy to follow instructions & step by step photos that even the most inexperienced braider can follow! While I haven't perfectly these styles yet, I'm a fan of how they look a little bit undone!

Check out more of my favorite braided styles on my Hair-spiration Pinterest Board!

Special thanks to my sister for letting me borrow her head for this post!
