I shop online a lot and it’s honestly my preference sometimes. So, people are always asking how and where to shop online. Shopping online is great because of the convenience of being able to be in the comfort of your own home and pick out any piece of clothing you want without having to search for other sizes or colors because it’s been misplaced in another part of the store. However, it can also be difficult when trying to figure out sizing; especially, when you’re used to U.S. sizing and trying to buy from a UK based brand. I’ve been shopping from UK based sites such as Asos, Missguided, and Ego for years and I’ve definitely had my fair share of sizing mistakes, but some stores don’t have free return options for US customers which makes me a little apprehensive to buy something considering it may be super expensive (most likely worth more than the product) to ship it back. So, that’s why I’m writing this post. I hope my tips help you guys when you’re shopping online during the holidays! (These tips can be used for US and UK online shopping.)
I hope you guys can use my tips in some way when you shop again online! Let me know if you have any questions or tips you’d like to add in the comment section below. To end this post, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite websites I’ve had great experiences with shopping online so, check them out! I hyperlinked them so if you click on the brand it will take you straight to the site.

Hey guys! I can’t even begin to describe how fab and stylish I felt in this two-piece set last weekend. The best part is that I didn’t even have to go through one of those “What goes with this?” moments while standing in front of my closet, because I already had the outfit picked out for me! Co-ords are perfect for those lazy days when you want to look cute but your indecisiveness is on an all time high. So, I was thankful I had this set from Nasty Gal just waiting for me in my closet. And btw, I got it for 50% off (...ohh yeaa 😏).
Has anyone else noticed that Nasty Gal is taking a cue from Missguided and finally having frequent 50% off sitewide sales?!?! I’m not mad about it all all!

Hey guys! Soooo.....this yellow cropped jacket is definitely one of my favorite items in my closet right now and is the perfect piece for the upcoming transition into fall (my favorite season!). I was walking in the mall, saw it in PacSun, and HAD to have it. No questions asked 😂. The cutoff hem and bright color has an urban vibe that I just couldn't say no to. I've been seeing cut off, colored denim jackets on social media so I was excited to find one to call my own; and with the seasons about to change, a golden toned statement jacket is perfect. I added a plain black hat, oversized hoops, and Vans to finish off this street style look and I'm really loving the outcome. I hope I brightened up your Monday with this outfit. Check out the details for my outfit below!

It was soooo hot this day which is why a cup of water made a cameo in my photos. :) Although I'm kind of over the bardot trend, I had to get this dress because it definitely gave me some chic, Kim K vibes and Kim is a style icon for me so I had to buy it. This is my favorite dress in my closet right now so I was super excited to finally wear it! I'm definitely into pastels at the moment and this sage colored dress from Fashion Nova is fulfilling my needs. I paired the dress with some nude lace-up heels from Charlotte Russe. I would wear an outfit like this to brunch or maybe a lunch or early dinner date. This was my first time buying from Fashion Nova and so far I'm liking it!

Most of my closet is black and just has a dark color scheme in general, which is so boring to me now (it makes me feel kind of sad when I look in my closet lol). So lately, I've been determined to wear lighter,brighter colors and summer is the perfect time to change it up. Adding a pop of color, like these bright orange shoes makes any outfit stand out. To me, the orange heels made my outfit a bit more visually pleasing than if I just wore a neutral colored shoe, like brown. And the clear mini bag completes the outfit by adding in a current trend I've been interested in. When I was in middle school I had always wanted one of those clear backpacks like Lizzie McGuire had and now at 24, I finally have it (well, at least the more grown up version)!
My whole outfit is from Forever 21, except for the choker which is from Asos.
