Peekaboo Bralette

Spring is here in full effect across Cali! Or did it ever leave? Or is it still summer here? Well, whatever it is, its warm, beautiful and 100% skirt weather. Fall and spring have always been my favorite seasons for styling outfits because there is something extra comfy and fun in styling skirts and dresses with long sleeves, sweaters and light jackets. 

Today I paired my long sleeve flowy blouse with another Teal & Tala goodie. I ordered this drawstring skirt and immediately thought of a ton of ways I could wear it this spring and summer. I didn't quite read the details listed on the item and to my surprise upon arrival, its leather! Hey I'll take it -- I like it even more! Adds a little something extra. 
One trend I'm loving this season has got to be the peekaboo bralettes. I own a few in different colors and think they are a fun and flirty way to add a touch of extra detail to an outfit. I have seen this trend in some, shall I say, much more revealing ways but my favorite way to show that touch of lace? An oversized low cut blouse or backless tank! Since my outfit today is pretty simple and laid-back  I decided to add a little touch of lace and some layered necklaces. 

I have yet another Teal &Tala outfit coming up that showcases another lace bralette that I absolutely adore! Teal & Tala, you're taking all my money!!

First and foremost, thanks so much to everyone who went over to StyleSpotter and checked out my interview! It still ranks as the #3 most read interview on their site! How neat! 

Ever make a purchase and your mind goes crazy with all the ways you want to style it? Thats exactly what happened with these snakeskin beauties. After following an Australian boutique, Teal and Tala, on instagram for quite some time -- and not to mention drooling over every post -- I finally decided to get on their site and do some damage to my wallet. Since it is a smaller site they do have a smaller selection but I would be lying if I said I didn't want every item they offered.  My new babies were coming all the way from Australia so I had to patiently {not so patiently} wait for their arrival. 

Once they came in I was equally obsessed with each piece but I will admit, these harem pants stole my heart on a whole new level! You will most certainly be seeing them styled in new ways throughout spring and summer, which is what shopping on a budget is all about {proud repeat offender!}. Since the print is large and and bold print I chose to keep the top simple and flawy with some dainty jewelry and a neutral wedge. Honey refers to these as my 'Rihanna' pants which, of course, makes me feel extra sassy.
