B.A.D. Girl Style: The ModCloth Weekend Warrior

I am excited to be participating in a weekly Polyvore outfit challenge hosted by ModCloth as part of their Uniquely You campaign!  This weeks featured item is the ‘Twirl Next Door Dress‘, a striped retro inspired piece in black and cream. Weekend Warrior by stylemebad featuring a golden earring When I saw this dress I immediately thought of weekend brunches and running around New York City on a beautiful day so that is where my inspiration for putting the outfit together came from. In order to successfully conquer your weekend you have to look put together but you also have to be comfortable so you can go for the long haul. My Weekend Warrior essentials always include a jacket for chilly mornings/nights, comfortable shoes, a lightweight bag that I can wear hands-free and dark sunglasses.  Always. How would you rock this dress? xoxo Nicole Check out ModCloth for other super cute dresses too! Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram   Youtube   Shop

B.A.D. Girl Style: Cap & Heels

I blogged last year about my baseball/5 panel cap obsession (post here) and I finally got my hands on this one from super cool brand Civil Clothing. The second I saw it I knew I wanted to rock it with my vintage Levis and a killer pair of heels; cue the new Prabal Gurung x Target heels.   Love this famous moustaches tee I found at Topshop during the holidays. It has every iconic stache you could think of on it! I really love mixing feminine with a bit of street or edge and I think this look was spot on! Oh! And did I mention the heels are super comfy?! Sa-weeeet! What are you rocking today? xx Nicole Follow Me: Bloglovin Facebook  Twitter Instagram

Be (B)eautiful: Beautiful people know how to make others feel beautiful too. Compliments, affection and kindness. Be (A)uthentic: Retro vintage inspired swim suits are so cute! I love how they are so different from what everyone else is wearing at the beach. This website has an amazing selection. Be (D)etermined: B.A.D girls are risk takers. We know that without risk there is a small chance for reward. If taking risks scares you than start small. Put yourself out there and if rejection is your outcome then so be it! You can move forward knowing you tried. One of the worst thoughts to have is”what if”. What if I had finished my degree, what if I had decided to call him after so long, what if I had decided to accept the position in a new state…

Be (B)eautiful: Having good posture is super important. Not only does it help keep you from being a hunchbacked old lady, but it makes you look so much better. Women who walk with their shoulders back and head up exude so much confidence. Plus when you stand or sit all the way upright it slims out your mid section. No more hunched shoulders ladies- time to poke out your lovely lady lumps! Be (Authentic: This ring is so DOPE! Vintage hematite-plated crystal from West Germany set in hot pink and silver base. These stones are extremely limited and once they’re gone, they will be gone forever. This means it’s a total unique piece! It’s also hand-made and 100% AUTHENTIC! Be (D)etermined: The above quote speaks for itself. Courageous women amaze me. They take a risk even when others may think they are crazy for it. They know what they want and allow no one to get in their way. And they never settle in life. Many of us fear failure, but I think a real …

Be (B)eautiful: I just purchased this top today. It’s so pretty! Pair it with leggings or dark denim skinny jeans. A girl can’t help but feel pretty in lace. You can be an angel for the day in this top BAD girl- I give you permission. 😉 Be (A)uthentic: This cardigan is inspired by the sailor trend that is making waves. I absolutely adore this. The lace and the gold buttons add a unique touch. Be (D)etermined: Bag a hot new man in these sexy heels. You will be a total woman on a mission in these Bad boys. Make sure you work it as you flaunt your stems.

Be (B)eautiful: Surprise someone you care about with a few pretty flowers in this adorable vase. Put a smile on their face for sure. Be (A)uthentic: I absolutely love this dress. Now that its warmer hot as hell outside I am obsessed with finding super cute dresses I can use for both work and play. This vintage inspired dress had me at hello! The cap sleeves and neck line are gorgeous! And then there are these SHOES. How FAB are they and how cute will they look paired with the dress?! Retro goddess forreal. Be (D)etermined: Get the job in this gorgeous blazer that is appropriately named ‘The Big Interview Blazer’. That is exactly what I thought when I saw it- make a great first impression with this fab find. It has a classic retro touch! Love love LOVE!
