If I could apologize a million times for disappearing this past month that would be great. I’m incredibly disappointed in myself right now because I feel like I gave up on the blog! I didn’t really mean to just stop blogging, but I am promising to step it up and get back on track. The hardest thing about being a fashion blogger, at least for me, is taking all these photos. My boyfriend is great, but I don’t want to bug him all the time to take my pictures. Then there’s photographers, but I’m not in the right place to be paying someone to take photos for me (no matter how good they are). Anyways those are my apologies and excuses now lets move on to the good stuff.

This outfit was super simple, and super comfortable for the light summer weather we were having yesterday. Every piece except for the hat is a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve worn this off the shoulder top so many times already, and I know I’ll still be wearing it until summer is over. I love that the top, and the hat are both on trend because I easily found them at Forever 21 at an affordable price. I’m pretty in love with the boater hat style, and with the pom pom details I think this one is adorable. A cute accessory plus sun protection? I’m all for it. The Jeans. These jeans were on mega sale when I stopped by the Gap outlet factory store. These are normally $70 jeans, but I walked out only paying $17!!! That’s such a score! Now online they’re currently $25, but that’s still a great deal for these jeans. They look somewhat like vintage Levi’s. I love the wash, and they fit like a flattering mom jean. They have all the sizes left online, so I highly recommend that you have a look for yourself.

Oh and those earrings! I don’t normally wear statement earrings, or even earrings at all. However, these caught my attention as I walked past the clearance section in Target (if you haven’t realized by now I’m Target obsessed). They were only $5, and I thought they would be a great way to spruce up any simple outfit.

As always I’ve linked the pieces below!

What’s your favorite trendy piece for the summer?

Spring in Venice, CA

Purse: Nine West

Top: Q

Jeans: ASOS Petite

Shoes: Forever 21

Watch: Michael Kors

Bandana: Target

Pineapple Sunnies: Target

I recently went up to LA just for a day trip, and the weather was dramatically different than it has been lately. It was 80 degrees out, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I love going to LA because it’s a fairly close place to go for a change of scenery, and I especially love the fashion scene up there. Living in San Diego there’s a lack of diverse fashion because it’s pretty slow paced, and everyone dresses pretty casual down here. I don’t feel so out of place in LA.

In these particular pictures I was walking around the Venice Canals which I actually had never been to before! I love all the houses on the canals because they’re all very different from one another. In fact I decided to take some pictures in front of someones house because I really loved the paint color, and the cacti!

If you read one of my previous posts, Off the Shoulder Tops & Suede Sandals, then you would know I love off the shoulder tops! They are definitely the trend for Spring, and I think they’re a great staple piece to have in your closet as well. I enjoy ones with various patterns, or really fun sleeves like the one I’m wearing here! I love the little ties at the end of the sleeves, and I think it’s a great added detail to make the top a little different. The jeans are my go to, and I also have features these shoes before. They’re SO comfortable, and can literally be worn with anything. I’ll link some similar, or exact pieces below for you guys!

All About Totes

Tote: Shop J and G

Top: H&M

Jeans: Madewell

Shoes: Forever 21

Watch: Michael Kors

I don’t know about you, but I really tend to carry way too much stuff in my purse. Especially when the weather starts changing I need more chapstick, sunscreen, and maybe a little travel deodorant just in case. This beautiful grey tote is from Shop J and G, and I really love how roomy it is on the inside. Also the color of this tote is perfect to pair with literally everything in my wardrobe, and isn’t that lock on the bag adorable? I’ve got a coupon code that you can use to get yourself a new handbag. At checkout use the code “simplyaubrie15” to receive 15% off your order!

The rest of this outfit holds a few of my favorite staples! A simple oversized button up that I scored at H&M‘s season sale for 10 dollars! Seriously 10 dollars! The loafers are new, and their from Forever 21. I bought a cheaper pair of loafers because I wasn’t sure how often I’d wear them. Now I know that I definitely want to invest in a pair because I absolutely love them!

I’ll link some of the things I’m wearing below along with some similar options!

My purse: Grey Abbey Tote

My exact top: Striped Blouse

My Loafers: Faux Leather Loafers ( They also come in white, and ROSE GOLD!!!)

Off the Shoulder Tops & Suede Sandals

Top: Boohoo (TJ Maxx)

Jeans: ASOS Petite

Sandals: Forever 21

Belt: Vintage

Necklaces: Forever 21

I am absolutely loving the off the shoulder trend for Spring! The one I’m wearing above is actually from the brand Boohoo, but I picked it up while browsing at TJ Maxx. I really loved the print it reminds me of a bandana, or a silk scarf. I also really loved the tulip back of the top, and I thought it was a really great way to make it a little bit different from all these other off the shoulder tops that everyone is wearing (aka the striped ones!). To go with this really lovely top I opted for these really beautiful suede heeled sandals! They sort of remind me of mules, and I love that even though they have a heel they are extremely comfortable.

Most of these items were really inexpensive (except for the ASOS jeans), and I will try and link some similar options below if I can’t find the exact items. If you don’t have the money to put down on expensive items yet like me then you should really hit that subscribe button to stay in touch with my affordable finds! I’m always adding thrifted items as well, so that you can see not everything you own has to be brand new.

So unfortunately I couldn’t find the sandals, or the top on the brands websites. I linked some fairly similar, and really cute other options though!
