day late and a peso short

Lo siento chicas! I am definitely a day late and a peso short on the whole cinco de mayo thing. This gal has been the opposite of anything chic lately—lots of late nights, slimey take-out and getting through the grind at work. Luckily, however, the world of instagram was out in full force last night to show me all the amazing queso and corona I was missing. Don’t feel too bad for me though–I did manage to find this sweet little topshop number to lift my spirits.

If I had been lucky enough to spend my yesterday somewhere fun, lounging leisurely—I’d be wearing something loose, flowy and bright (the more embroidered the better!)—and pair it with some tassel sandals to really seal the fiesta-worthy deal (also die for these by the same designer)

cinco de mayo
1. striped mexi dress

2. loeffler randall tassel sandals (budget friendly version)

3. cabachon cuff

4. clear acetate frames

5. neutral woven tote (die for these straw bags here)

Also, a pair of clear sunglasses has been on my wishlist for this summer— ever since I saw them on my original girl crush OP. Round lenses are everywhere this season but I may have to try a cheap pair before I break the bank for this cutler and gross style.

A few more festive looks to cure the “mexi (i dont live in) cali” blues

1) adjustable ruffled maxi dress (worn on one of my bffs CHG here)
