simple + clean

Walking into a Forever 21 always stresses me out because of how massive they are. Endless aisles, shelves, and racks of pretty much everything you can think of. I'm definitely one of those people who can spend hours shuffling through the store and leave with at least one item in hand. It's hard not to when everything is so inexpensive. On Saturday, my friend Christina and I hit up the larger Forever 21 (three floors!) on a mission to check items off her shopping list. Did that happen? No. Did I walk out with the cutest pieces of minimalist jewelry? Of course. I've been on the hunt for more simplistic jewelry, as my collection of statement necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings has been constantly growing, and needed to be put on hold for a bit! Take a look at my finds below as well as some other pieces I'd love to snag (which you should, too!)!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and start to a new week so far!

Burberry Resort 2016: Good Girl Meets Her Wild Side

Prim, proper, and pretty: three elements of the Burberry 2016 Resort collection. Impeccably structured lace was showcased in such intricate detail that you'd need a magnifying glass to fully see its beauty. Fine black mesh aligned in wild directions adorned a gown, while shaved ruffles of deconstructed feathers embellished an abstract animal jacquard atop a zebra-printed shearling coat. Lace and macramé were layered horizontally in various alignments to embody a corset-like panel. Other elements include silk faille trench coats, basket-weave-like detailing, the perfect baby bucket bags, and elegant military tailoring.

The exquisite collection is perfect for the not-quite-the-good-girl who just so happened to be in touch with her wild side. My favorite looks are outlined below.

Best Dressed: amfAR Gala 2015

Celebrities take high fashion to an entirely new level at the Cannes Film Festival. The film festival's most fashionable event - also one of a very important message - the amfAR Gala, was today. Set in the beautiful French Riviera, each gown was more magical than the next and left me wanting every... single... one. Models, actors, and style icons dazzled the red carpet in stunning looks, wearing everything from sexy cutouts and high slits to elegant feathers and shimmering gowns.

Here are my favorite looks. I'd love to hear your thoughts as well!
