Guys I am SO SO excited to share my newest clothing brand obsession with y’all…BUDDY LOVE! You guys know I LOVE bright bold colors, prints + accents and anything with a girly feel so when I discovered Buddy Love I instantly fell in love! From chic dresses to flirty tops to great swim pieces, Buddy Love has all of the fun pieces you’ll want to wear all summer long + the best part? They fit great, are amazing quality + are at an affordable price point.
I first discovered Buddy Love via Red Dress Boutique since I am always adding new pieces to my wardrobe from their new arrivals section + when I spotted these fun prints + neon hues I knew this brand would be a new go-to for me!
One of my current Buddy Love favorites is this cobalt reptile print dress. When I slipped it on not only did I feel sassy, fierce + sexy, but I also feel like Paris Hilton + crew would have so rocked this outfit in the early 2000’s + any little bit of nostalgia I can feel when it comes to fashion, I am all about it!
Before I begin sharing my current Buddy Love obsessions, I want to share how I styled this dress with these classic white pumps + vintage Prada bag. I got this bag when I was in middle school + now it’s making a come back. Don’t you love that?! When things come back in style after being forgotten for so long? Such an exciting feeling + a lesson to never let go of pieces that may make a comeback one day!
Now to round up some of my current Buddy Love favorites…these picks are sure to have you stylin’ this summer + I can’t wait to stock up on more of these beautiful pieces hehe ♥

Summer is HERE (YAY!!) + while I always embrace a little ‘Pop Of Color‘, now is the perfect time for everyone to join in on the fun + brighten up their wardrobe with some POPS of fun hues. Since I am a forever color lover, I wanted to share some tips on how to incorporate color into your wardrobe, one piece at a time. I wasn’t always the fun loving neon lover, but in my early twenties I began loving bright colors which lead to a cheerful perspective + a happy outlook. Clothing + accessories of course make you stylish, but they can also change your mood + boost your confidence! A great way to do that is by adding some statement pieces you’ll love that are sure to ‘P O P’.
1. START OFF SMALL
A lot of people get intimidated by wearing bright colors or loud prints as it may be to attention grabbing or they feel they can’t ‘pull it off’. First off, we are in 2019 where everything is attention grabbing + for the most part, we can pull off anything BUT if you are hesitant or a little cautious, a great way to introduce color into your wardrobe is through accessories like jewelry, a scarf, hat, handbags or shoes. This way it’s a small amount of color + you can mix it various ways with an otherwise neutral ensemble.
2. LET KEY PIECES SHINE
While I am a firm believer in there being no such thing as fashion ‘rules’, I must say if you are just starting to wear color it definitely helps to let the statement piece shine by keeping other pieces relatively monochromatic. For example, if you are wearing cobalt blue shoes, keep the dress white, neutral or black…this way you aren’t worried about mixing prints or colors that seem mismatched. Plus, this is an easier way to get dressed in the AM since you can simply start with your bold piece and build the rest of your look around that.
3. FIND THE RIGHT COLOR FOR YOU
Just as you would with makeup, finding the right hues or shades for your skin + body type is key when it comes to wearing color. After a little time getting familiar with wearing color, you’ll find what colors match best with you. I love to wear blue, pink + yellow since it really pops during the summer months when I finally get a little glow or tan. You can find some guides online on which colors are best to wear for what purpose + that definitely helps when incorporating color into your wardrobe.
