Greens and Kale

shirt, jeans, heels, necklace (similar here, here and here), sunglasses I have already said it, but will say it again, graphic tees are my jam! This KALE one is super soft and comfy. I recently discovered the brand Sub_Urban Riot at Nordstrom and love it all. It’s super affordable and the tees are kind of silly. I wanted to dress up this graphic tee by adding some nude pumps and a colorful statement necklace. Since there was some green ...

I definitely want to share some photos from that trip so stay tuned! The off the shoulder look has been seen all over the place this year. There is something flirty and easy going about it. I love this look because it’s very bohemian inspired and ...

Meatloaf For The Pup

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but this week was extra busy for me. I have lots of things planned for this weekend including a quick trip to Disneyland with my sister! You can follow me and my adventures at Disneyland on  my instagram, @cassiecottura. Today I wanted to do a post about what I like to make for my dog, Jax. I know it’s not stylish or glamorous and not everyone has a dog, but this dog means the world to me. ...

Olive Green

stem t-shirt, paige jeans (old similar here), sam edelman petty booties, rebecca mink off bag, alex and ani bangles I am all about wearing pieces that are neutral and have the ability to be worn with multiple outfits. I found these olive green Paige jeans last year at Nordstrom Rack. I really love the olive green color. It’s neutral, but still adds a bit of interest to the outfit. I love to pair it with other neutral colors. These ...

Spring Update

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am so happy it’s finally the weekend!!!! Now that spring has finally come, it’s time to update things. I love nail polish and lipstick. It’s a great way to update your wardrobe, without really changing much. I opted for spring shades that will brighten any outfit! First, we’ll talk lipsticks. The three in this photo are great spring options. Sweet and Sour by MAC is a ...

Since there is a lot going ...

Everyday Neutral Makeup

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend, I know I did. Today I wanted to talk about my everyday neutral makeup look. Although I love getting dolled up, putting a full face of makeup just isn’t practical for me everyday. I work as a preschool teacher and honestly I just want to look presentable, but not like I rolled out of bed. So here is what I do: 1. After I have washed my face, I apply Josie Maran Aragan Oil, (sometimes I use ...

Intricate Booties

I really am a sucker for booties. These ones are  the Sam Edelman Putnam, very similar to the Petty bootie (currently on sale!). I found these on for a steal! They were only $39 instead of $160! I had to get them for that price! Unfortunately they are no longer available on 6pm, but every once and a while they will have the Petty bootie for a great price, so definitely check 6pm out if yu looking for a great deal. Booties are a ...
