The Jolie-Pitt clan is seriously going to rule the world in about 15 years. Their small army of six is too cute for words and they each have their own personal style (or so it seems). I don’t even have as good of style as these 6-year olds!

Another lady who’s keen sense of style I adore is Zooey Deschanel. She is different and doesn’t fit into the “hollywood” mold. She tries new things and her style is part mod, part little house on the prairie. I love that she is not afraid to be different and how she plays with new looks.

What celebrities do you think do well at being different?

This season I have been watching The Bachelorette and I cannot help but notice how cute most of her clothing and jewelery is. We all know she probably gets all this stuff for free, which makes me hate her a little bit inside, but I just wanted to show you some of the cute things that she has worn for her 25 hunky men (GO CHRIS L.!!!)

Here is what set off my obsession of watching what Ali wears this season. This gold and turquoise necklace paired with her simple, oversized t-shirt really stuck out to me. After I watched that episode I actually spent some time (like over an hour!) looking for that necklace online, because I thought it was so pretty. Ali’s jewelery on every show is unique and beautiful, but I really like how she pairs very simple, casual pieces with more dressy ones.

This black leather jacket was the second piece in Ali’sĀ  wardrobe that I noticed. I love the gold detail on the zippers, and I just think this jacket looks sharp! She has worn this jacket more than once on the show, which I can also appreciate as I am assuming it is pretty pricey. Girlfriend has a level head!

Another reason why I appreciate Ali is because she has admitted that she doesn’t know much about fashion, and that she is comfiest in jeans, a shirt and some converse. How cute does she look here with her bright yellow tank top and purple shoes? I like that she feels fine when she is not glammed up and that a part of her won’t let the producers completely dictate what she wears.

Lastly, Ali can look really polished and put together. But one of the main things I have noticed about her is that she is always (almost, unless Justin is running away from her) smiling and laughing. Some find her constant giggle to be annoying, and at times it can be, but I love that she has such a happy disposition about her. You look best when you feel your best and that really comes through with Ali. I am excited to see what she wears to see her top 3 men’s families, and GO CHRIS L.!!!

I have a new obsession (I define “obsession” as I have recently purchased more than one of this particular thing). Summer is finally here in Eugene, Oregon and that means we need to dress the part. Today I purchased my second fedora in a week… (uh oh this is a bad sign). But the truth is that summer hats are awesome for a handful of reasons. Here are a few.

1. They shade your face from damaging UV rays

I don’t know about you, but I do not want to be 30 and have wrinkles and crows feet all over my face. Hats are the perfect solution.

2. Hat = You don’t have to wash or style your hair

Hats can cover up your messy hair. Sometimes it is just too hot out to blow dry your hair, throw on a had and you’re done, Voila!

3. Hats just make you look cool

Have you ever noticed that people wearing hats look cooler? I don’t know why that is but it is a proven fact. Google it. Anyways a hat is the perfect way to give you that beachy, chill vibe.

The hardest part about wearing hats is the way you feel in them. Most people feel like they just don’t look good in hats, but that is just because you aren’t used to them. Rock them with confidence, everyone looking at you is probably thinking “I wish I looked good in hats!”

Without a doubt one of the more popular trends to take off this spring and summer has been the romper. Yes, you are now allowed to dress like a 6-year-old girl and get away with it. However, most of the designs are a little bit more sassy than the ones you wore when you were young. Some of my favorite brands have come out with fun takes on the classic romper. Here are a few:

Dolce Vita 'Hilda Romper'

I really like the one-shoulder trend lately and this romper got it right! Warning: To wear this bad boy you have to be on your A-game, it requires some major sass!

Joie 'Acacia' Silk Romper

This romper offers a little bit more coverage and is a little bit more dressy. I love the silk, and it looks so comfortable. The cuffed sleeves and shoulder detail give it that army feel that has been so popular lately. Added Bonus: Pockets!

Tulle 'Petal Sleeve Romper'

I love the floral pattern on this romper. It reminds me of one that I would wear when I was younger, but the bronze snaps on the front and back pockets gives it some extra flair. Add a stack of bracelets or flat sandals to accentuate them!

Back

Dolce Vita ‘Jade Romper’

This romper is quite cute and also comes in black. The silky material is flattering and hangs loosely off the body. The back detail is done in lace, and in sits at the perfect spot to hide your bra.

Embrace the romper while it is so warm outside. After all, one piece of clothing and you are done! How amazing is that?
