The Ultimate Chicago Day Trip Intinerary!


HERE IT IS FOLKS!

My Chicago - one day travel diary!

Chicago is the perfect city for a day trip because there is so much to explore in walking distance! The windy city is SO much fun and has always had a place in my heart. For this travel diary I'm going to tell you all the fun and insta-worthy activities I packed into just one days time!

The Perfect Blue Beach Dress


Hi guys! I want to start by saying I am SO sorry I didn't put up a trend board on Monday, I've been out of town this past weekend and time just got away from me. I promise a new post will be up Friday and then back to normal - Monday, Wednesday, Friday the following week! Woo hoo for new content.

The Beauty of Breaking Your Schedule


Whether you're a fellow blogger, creative, type A, or busy minded person I'm sure you'll be able to relate to what I'm about to say. And by the title of this post I'm sure you have an inkling of what I'm going to talk about. A quick disclaimer before I begin - I don't want any of this to sound preachy. I am more than guilty of all of the things I am going to talk about and I want everyone who feels this same way to understand that they aren't alone. It's hard, life is hard, lets not do it by ourselves.

Purple Printed Summer Fun


Hellllo friends!

This past weekend was the annual Columbus Arts Festival, AKA the place where my creative side flourishes (and I got tie-dye gelato so prepare yourself for some pictures of that).

Fourth of July Outfits For Every Occasion


As The Fourth of July quickly approaches, us outfit procrastinators continue to deny that we need a variety of ensembles for different events. As a courtesy to my readers (and also a little inspo for myself - oops) I decided to put together four different "themed" outfits for the Fourth of July.

Pink Tiered Perfection


I am 100% happiest when I am wearing an excess amount of pink. In this post alone I have pink tinted sunglasses, pink lipstick, layered pink tassel earrings (a must have by the way), and a pink dress with pink lace detailing. Totally not my favorite color guys I promise. But hey, I am a fashion blogger, so being a little girly is basically in the job description.

Classy Stripes and Espadrille Platforms


Hi everyone - I hope your summers are going great! So far I've been nannying and working some odd jobs to try to avoid being the broke college student that I am (slowly but surely guys... Wish me luck). I did a post in this same location back when it was cold and gloomy (you can find that post here) but now that its summer this white bridge looks beautiful and bright again!

Shop the Succulent Fad

{background photo via}

The adorable little plants you're seeing everywhere nowadays? Those are succulents, and besides their many health benefits, they are absolutely adorable on clothing, decorative wall prints, mugs and more. I rounded up the most fun wearable options I could find, some from Etsy, some from well known places like SHEIN or ASOS! You can honestly find these prints everywhere and I'm predicting that you will just start to see even more as the fad continues. It reminds me a little of the palm leaf trend, which we all know and love!

Yes Way Vacay!


Alright ya'll. We all love vacation and graphic tees - so whats stopping you from purchasing this adorable Old Navy top?! AND it's only $12! Honestly, all of Old Navy's stuff right now is so cute - but their graphic tees are especially on point. I tied my shirt up with these adorable high waisted camo shorts from Forever 21. If you're in the market for affordable camo they have quite a selection right now! This look is a little more casual than what I normally wear on A Dash of Class, probably because I wore it strawberry picking and I just don't think dresses are appropriate attire for that kind of ordeal! Only in my dream world, I guess.

Gingham For Every Occasion



Hi guys! I've been really into this crazy amount of gingham clothing being plastered all over my favorite stores and online boutiques lately. The gingham look adds everything I love to an outfit - all the girly, preppy, and classy vibes tied together in one while still being trendy and young. I've been eyeing a lot of pieces lately, especially a few that I've seen some bloggers wearing. But I wanted to do some digging and scout out some potentially never before seen pieces that you can wear for ALL different occasion! I don't know about you guys but I have a tendency to buy an excess of dresses and rompers without realizing that maybe, one day, I'll have to wear a different type of clothing. Harmless mistake, honestly.

6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Chop Your Locks


Hi everyone! So today I decided to discuss a little bit about cutting your hair. And I don't mean your normal trim or a few inches off - I mean the big chop. I never loved my hair, so when the idea popped into my head to cut it into a bob I decided it was perfect. It was trendy, fun, and easier to take care of! What could possibly hold me back! As much as I do like my short hair (its a love/hate relationship) I feel like I wouldn't have gone through my period of regret if I would have given it all a little bit more consideration. And that is why I'm writing this post! I want you all to know what you're getting into beforehand, and I want you to consider the questions you didn't even know you had! So here are my top 6 questions that I think you should ask yourself before you go for the big cut.
