I’m not sure if you know, but BB Dakota makes a ton of on-trend pieces with similar silhouettes to some high end designers like Vince and Helmut Lang to name a few. You can call it a knock off or you can see it as great pieces for the rest of us. Initially I was on the fence. I read a handful of reviews about BB Dakota pieces in general and just wasn’t sold. Then, I saw the Jasper faux leather jacket on someone on Instagram and knew I had to at least try it on. I’m so glad I did because it’s amazing (see me wear it here)! Recently, I stumbled upon this very Helmut Lang-like blazer and just fell in love with the cut in the front and back. It had pretty great reviews, so I took the plunge. Another great piece at an affordable price! I’m also happy to report size 0 and xs run true to size and fit like a glove. Every brand has hits and misses, but I’m so happy to say, when BB Dakota gets it right, they knock it out of the park. I could not be happier with the Jasper faux leather jacket and this Cory Blazer!

Has anyone else tried any BB Dakota pieces?

Mango | Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

leather jacket // tank blouse // denim shorts // black coated jeans // linen blend shorts // beaded embroidered dress // shirt dress // jumpsuit // maxi dress // embroidered long dress // trousers // wrap skirt dress

I don’t know if I love the actual pieces more or the photos and styling. Regardless, Mango Spring/Summer 2014 collection is AMAZING! The clean lines, neutral color palette, and simple silhouettes are perfect in every way. They’ve also managed to cover all my favorite trends: embroidery, distressed denim, and white! I already have my eyes on the white embroidered maxi dress, it’s so good. If you’re looking for simple and basic, this is definitely a collection to check out!

Don’t you just love?

This look pretty much sums up my uniform for summer. The Cuyana tee is the perfect white tee to pair with all my denim and not to mention, it’s unbelievably soft and comfortable. Then there’s this LoveBirds LA clutch that I just adore. The colors, the pattern, and the size, it’s just perfection! And then obviously, there’s the shorts of the season, the Rag & Bone boyfriend shorts. Everyone has them, but you can’t be mad because they’re that good. I would recommend sizing down one or two sizes (these are a size 23, the smallest they go). I could easily live in a white tee and denim shorts all summer long… classic and comfortable, you can’t go wrong!

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine involved a whole lot of cleaning and organizing my office. This office has been a huge process. It will be two years of living in this space come November, and no, this room is not complete yet! I can admit it, I’m horrible at finishing home decor projects. The good news, we bought, built, and DIY’d all of the big stuff and the room is near complete. The last two pieces to add, a rug and one last print. Pretty good, right? I cannot wait to share the finished product! I also cleaned out more of my closet. You can shop the new pieces here.

It’s Mike’s last couple of days of spring break, so we’re off on a little day trip today. As always, you can follow along on Instagram. Cheers to a great week, friends!
