Say Hello To Summer With These Affordable Statement Pieces

Happy almost-June! Where does the time go? It feels like just yesterday it was snowing and I was bundled up by the fire...oh wait. It was pretty much yesterday! Stop playing games, Colorado! Anyways, I'm so excited to show you guys three new pieces I've recently added to my wardrobe that I'm really excited about this season thanks to 


I love this simple camel shift dress. The sides have little cut outs, and the back has a gorgeous deep v plunge like the front. I decided to pair it with my favorite platform sandals from Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn.  Then I added a simple black choker I got from the Express x Karlie Kloss show, a black fedora from Wet Seal, and a simple lace kimono. 

You can wear this outfit on a summer date, to a graduation party, a fun dinner, or a Girls Night Out! Not only is it really simple, but it's also comfy and perfect for warm summer days. 



I also tried to keep this look pretty simple. I added a super loose white top that I got from Francesca's a couple years ago. I love that this top is so lightweight, so it keeps me cooler on warm days. For accessories, I'm just wearing my Classic Petite watch from Daniel Wellington (15% off using my code "mattealinae") and a neck tie I got from Express.  As for shoes, I'm just wearing a simple pair of slip on Vans.  The fringe romper is from Tobi, and it's super loose and comfy. My favorite part? IT HAS POCKETS!

Where would I wear this look? A summer party, bowling with friends, a summer ice cream shindig, to the lake, or out shopping with friends! The more laid back feel will allow you to do something more active whether you're skating with friends, or exploring your town. 



I think this look is one of my all-time favorites! It's the perfect amount of edge for me. I scored this black mesh crop top from, and you can score yours (on sale for $17) by clicking: Here. I already have a ton of different outfit ideas for this crop top since it can be restyled in so many different ways, so you'll definitely be seeing it a lot on Instagram! I paired it with the White High Waisted pants I got from the Karlie Kloss show that are currently half off online. This bag is from Oliver Bilou  and I LOVE it! I like my bags to have a lot of structure so they don't wear out as fast and hold their shape. This one certainly gets the job done. My sunnies are from Fantas-eyes. They sell designer looking glasses that are actually affordable, which is great if you're ballin' on a budget like me (#poorcollegestudentlife).

This outfit could definitely be worn for a night out on the town, to a brunch, boutique shopping with your besties, or to a  party. Get creative! 

I really hope you guys enjoyed these looks! Have a great weekend :)
