How I Style My T-Shirts X All Under $20

Comfort is key ladies, and with that being said, graphic tee's, plain white tee's, and oversized tee's are the way to go. I have collected a lot of graphic tee's over the years. Since graphic tee's are timeless, that means they never get old. I even like to think, the older the better because of the vintage effect it gives. T-shirt's are fun to style and they pair with other pieces in my closet. Not only does it give a relaxed vibe, but it creates true comfort that appears like you actually tried. This blog post, I will be sharing my top five favorite T-Shirt's all under $20!
For starters, a classic lip bite print is a staple trend this summer. I styled this glittery lip print t-shirt with a bright pink pleated skort. This look is one of my favorites out of all five because it was the most "me". It felt most like me because I added animal print to this outfit with leopard booties and a black wide brim hat. I added translucent yellow aviators as well. I sized up in this Amazon Prime top to a large because I wanted a looser fit so I could tie it in a front knot.
Let's switch up from booties to sneakers. White sneaks go with every single outfit ever, in my opinion. Since leopard is practically a neutral to me, I styled this next outfit with a leopard fanny pack, of course. I have been loving the mix of print trend going around so I decided to try it out but a little less obnoxious. I mixed the leopard with my star pleather skirt and it added a hint of edginess. A good cropped tee is so flattering with high waisted bottoms, but don't worry, if you don't own a cropped graphic tee, it is SO simple to DIY it. This t-shirt is my best friend's that I borrowed (and probably never giving back- sorry Ally) and she cropped it herself to create a more feminine effect. I could not find an exact link for this top, but I found a similar option here that you can take some scissors to yourself! You can never go wrong with a top knot bun and oversized sunnies. I absolutely hate doing my hair, so I always throw it up and try my best to make it look presentable.
Band Tee's are mostly all I wear for Pajamas and around my house. I probably have nearly twenty different band tees and I have no shame. This oversized Nirvana T-shirt is so soft and feels like a blanket with arm holes. If you're going to learn anything from my blog, I want it to be this: you do not have to spend a lot of money on clothes, especially graphic tees. There are some very expensive band tee's at stores, but as long as you size up on Amazon Prime, or Nasty Gal, etc. You will find your dream tee. You can even go thrifting at your local thrift shop and find amazing options in the men's section. I am wearing a double extra large in this t-shirt for a very oversized look. I decided to show off my figure by pairing a D-ring belt that singes in my waist. Combat boots are a total confidence booster. throw on a good pair of studded combat boots and you can take on the day with fearlessness. Other than this oversized Nirvana tee, the statement piece in this outfit are these adorable star hair clips. Im on board with this hair accessory trend, so I have been constantly wearing hair clips to add accessories other than Jewelry.
Graphic tee's don't always have be "boyish" though, I found this dainty designed white tee on Nasty Gal that can be dressed up or dressed down. Luckily, this also comes in black. I am wearing a size medium so it is breathable but not completely oversized. I decided to dress it up with some striped pants and slide sandals. This outfit wouldn't be styled by me if it didn't have a wide brim hat. Summer screams warm tones so I had to continue to trend with a straw crossbody bag. Wicker purses, straw totes, and anything along those lines are noticeably stylish this summer. I have loved this trend for such a long time. I had the vision of adding a slight amount of cool tones. What better way to do that rather than adding a hair scarf? Since I was already wearing a hat, I added the hair scarf to my purse!
Alright, last but definitely not least, this outfit is a walking set of pajamas! I am beyond obsessed with this look, it is SO comfortable and SO easy to accomplish. You can get away with bed head and no make up. But, most importantly, this graphic tee and sweat short set can double as sleepwear. I have worn this outfit out and about, but also as cozy nighttime wear. I found this top and these bottoms at the one and only, TJMAXX. I could not find the exact shirt on their website, so I will link a similar option here. Like I previously stated, combat boots create empowerment. This outfit might be "chill" but combat boots dress it up like no other. Considering this is a easy breezy outfit and I hate doing my hair, I added my favorite bucket hat to cover up my messy mane.
You might think a t-shirt isn't "style" or "cute" but as long as you feel happy in it, then that's all that matters. Acquiring style isn't about the clothes you wear, it's about the way you feel. Always remember to wear clothes that boost your confidence. Thank you for reading my blog post :) I hope you have a great day.

Sweet Summer Suit X Under $20

The easiest, comfiest, AND cutest beach look I've ever worn.
This one piece belted bathing suit covers all of the food I scarfed down before this photo was taken, and it looks like I put in way more effort than I actually did. What screams summer more than a crisp white bathing suit to enhance your tanned skin? This killer swimsuit and adorable hat will leave you with so much confidence. Not only is this one piece bathing suit from Amazon Prime flattering because of the cut, style, and lining, but it the belt singes in your waist and creates an hour glass effect. One pieces are always a great decision, and luckily this one comes in 9 colors so you can pick which one you feel the best in (I am wearing a size medium and it is true to size with adjustable straps). If I can keep my payment under $20, I usually feel less horrible about my shopping addiction, thankfully, Amazon helped me again with my savings by making this bathing suit only $17.99!!!
This outfit wouldn't be a Sierra styled outfit without some animal print incorporated. Of course, I had to add leopard details to this beach day look. I am overly obsessed with all types of hats in the summer time. I love wide brim hats, straw hats, fedoras, cabby hats and beyond. Any hat can add SO much to an outfit. You can never go wrong with a cute cap! I usually get my hats on Amazon Prime, at Target, or TJ Maxx. In my opinion, they all have the best options. I used to make fun of my boyfriend for wearing bucket hats, but here I am a few years later wearing them all the time. Reversible apparel is similar to a buy one get one free since it is a two in one kinda deal. Luckily, I found this high quality bucket hat on Amazon Prime that has all white on one side and leopard print on the other. If white is not your color, well that is alright because they have various other color options. Two hats for the price of one is not only amazing, but when the price is under $12 it is even better. Snag this reversible bucket hat for ONLY $11.99!
The last essential accessory with this outfit is my new favorite summer bag. This crotchet beach bag matches with every bohemian outfit in your wardrobe. The beige color tone complimented my leopard hat well. I will 100% be using this bag all summer long. My favorite part of this woven shoulder bag is the fact that is was handmade! This handmade crotchet tote was only $15.99

Styling Tip: The one piece swimsuit can also double as a cute bodysuit :)

You Can Never Have Too Many Sunnies X Trendiest Sunglasses Under $15

What's up guys! This week I wanted to share my favorite sunglasses under $15. Summer 2019 has arrived and my style has shifted since last year. I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out new trends. I personally own all of these sunglasses and I wear them all religiously. Always remember... you can never have too many sunnies in your life!
I know some people prefer to splurge on expensive sunglasses because they treat them with care and purchase timeless styles. But, as a twenty year old college student who wears sunnies to every event, lavish sunglasses are not an option for me. With that being said, get the look for less! I used to be the type of person to buy a pair of upscale aviator sunglasses each summer and wear them all day everyday. As a fashion lover, I enjoy trying out new trends and fads throughout each season. What better way is there to accessorize in the sweet summertime? Sunglasses are not only a stylish focal point to an outfit, but they help to make you look more alive when you spend your days with a fresh face of no make up. One of my favorite parts of bold shades are the way they dress up any outfit. I kid you not, I revolve a lot of outfits around a pair of sunnies in the summer.

I am absolutely loving the small sunglass trend this season. Out of all of my inexpensive sunglasses, nearly half of them are vintage styled with small frames. I have purchases neutral tones and bright colors to spice up a plain outfit. I have a black, white and tortoise brown print for an array of apparel. I never thought I would be a fan of colorful vintage sunglasses but I stepped out of my comfort zone and tested out a new style. I encourage everyone to branch out because you never know what can add to your confidence until you try.
All black sunglasses are perfect for an edgy vibe outfit. Not only does this pair of tiny black sunnies go well with any hair color and skin tone, but they match well with sweats or a dress depending on what makes you feel confident. I literally bring these sunglasses with me everywhere I go because I can wear them while running errands or heading to the city for a day trip. The possibilities are endless.
In contrast to the all black sunglasses, I also have a white pair that creates a classier energy. I wear the white framed shades with outfits that are more feminine and dressed up. White cat eye sunglasses make me feel like I'm a cast member of the movie Grease. The white and black cat eye sunglasses can be purchased for as low as $12.
Tortoise brown prints are everywhere this season, you can find them in any mall, any boutique or most online stores. It is a print that can be mixed with other prints because it is not overwhelming. I love styling these sunnies with sun dresses, bikinis, floppy hats, and summery sets. You only have to spend $13 to achieve a classy look.
What is better than an all white romper, dress, or two piece set with a pop of color? The last two small sunnies I wanted to share are vibrant and make a total statement. Lavender is a beautiful color for warm weather. These translucent cat eye sunglasses are great for football games because they come in so many colors! Depending on your school colors, you can support your sports teams while staying on trend at the same time. I bought the purple tone for the East Carolina University Pirates! I spent just $13 for this fashionable accessory. For even cheaper, I bought a unique shaped pair of sunglasses with pointed tips and a yellow lens to support my school colors. The overall price of these adorable sunnies were only $8.
Aviator sunglasses will always be a favorite in my eyes. I love adding a hint of bling and  incorporating my inner Britney Spears into my wardrobe. How cute are these studded brown gradient    aviators under $13? I pair these with an edgy or classy outfit because they are so versatile. Secondly, I wear these yellow translucent aviators with silver accents for all occasions in the summertime! Yellow reminds me of sunshine and happiness. You will automatically gain positive vibes by purchasing these trendy shades. You won't have to spend over $10 to steal this look.
I have major heart eyes for these red statement sunglasses that are just under $10. You will fall in love with these oversized sunnies and all of the colorful options they carry. Oversized sunglasses are perfect for a beach day when you want to protect your eyes and look cute while doing it.
Last but not least, one of my all time favorite pair of sunglasses are these oversized blocked pair. All black sunnies are hands down amazing. But, these LA inspired large sunglasses are more than JUST amazing. I never thought I would be able to pull these off but I feel more confident in these than any other one I own. When I say these are the ultimate fashion statement, I truly mean it. The best part of these sunnies are the price- ONLY $8 for these stunners!
Thank you SO much for joining me in this blog post!!! I hope you gain some style inspiration and step out of YOUR comfort with new fashion trends.

Wild Child X Everything Under $20

Before I start telling you guys all about one of my all time favorite summer looks... I just wanted to thank you in advance for reading my blog! This is my first post, I am nervous, excited, and everything in between. I hope you enjoy!!!

Alright, LADIES this outfit is such a vibe, but the best part is it's all affordable. My skirt and hat are from my favorite place to shop- Amazon Prime. If you know me, you know I order from amazon multiple times a week and I have no complaints. Amazon Prime is not only two day shipping but it is also free returns so it makes online shopping less scary and lacks full commitment. The black top I styled with this outfit is from Amazon originally but I discovered it on Romwe for cheaper. Romwe has similar options in comparison to Amazon Prime and this item was such a steal! 
If I could wear hats every day for the rest of my life if I would! Styling wide brim hats, baseball caps, beret's, fedoras and many other types of hats is my favorite. In today's look, I wore a Women's Greek Fisherman's hat. I am obsessed with these hats- I have so many colors! This black one is essential because it literally matches everything in your closet.
My wrap tie top is a statement piece that actually doubles as a trendy bathing suit as well (definitely bad tan lines). I purchased this top years ago but hardly touched it until recently. I completely forgot I had it and now I have to make up for lost times and wear it a ton! You'll never believe how inexpensive this Romwe bathing suit was... only $10.95. Sizes range from a small to an extra large and it runs true to size- I am wearing a small in this photo. This gorgeous suit comes in a variety of colors perfect for the summer.
The best part of this outfit is the vibrant orange midi skirt. Anything leopard screams my name (my closet is full of animal print). This midi skirt has to be one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe because it is so unique. I found this item on amazon for only $18.99 and it ranges from sizes small to extra large. The skirt comes in several different colors and prints too! In this photo, my skirt has a slit up the side because I wanted to add an edgy touch so I cut it with scissors. 

I hope you enjoyed! Always remember to wear what makes you happy.
