Sweater: J. Crew (old, similar here and here), Skirt: J. Crew Factory (old, Shoes: Jack Rogers (here), Bag: Zara (here), Bracelet: J. Crew 






I am sure I am not alone in saying that I have been loving the sightly cooler weather lately, it makes me even more excited for fall! Cue my neon chunky sweater-- I love a good chunky sweater, and I love one even more when it is paired with something unexpected. A lightweight, girly, floral skirt was my something unexpected for today's look :) 
Happy hump day!

friday finds

Friday, July 26, 2013

I cannot believe I am saying this, but I am ready for fall! Well mainly just fall clothes. Every season I find myself longing for the next before the current one is even close to being over. I blame my frequent shopping habits and working in retail. Fall clothes are already in many stores, and they are full of rich colors and textures. Yep, I am ready. Here a few current favorites I was drooling over at work yesterday. They do not disappoint!

tshirt love

Thursday, July 25, 2013


Tee: J. Crew (no longer online, similar here), Skirt: Zara, Shoes: Zara, Bag: J. Crew (similar here), Necklace: J. Crew, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Stella & Dot (here), Sarah Chloe (here), & David Yurman 




Packing up my closet and moving it 500 miles, and into a closet that is only about 1/3 of the size of my old one, was no easy task. Sadly, most of my clothes are still sitting in boxes or hanging in my closet at my mom's house, but I made sure that all of my current favorite pieces made the move with me into my new closet. So in the mean time I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot of oldies but goodies reappear on the blog. Like this tee and skirt, both beloved items in my closet, and together they make the perfect laid back, feminine combo :)  
Happy Thursday!

current crush(es)

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


My obsession love for jewelry is no secret. Not a day goes by where you'll catch me without my daily staples, and most days involve additional layers of loud or dainty pieces. While my collection started out as bookoos of cheaper pieces, I have found myself gravitating towards higher quality statement pieces. Quality over quantity, right!? While I love all styles of jewels I truly love pieces with art deco, vintage glam, and edgy influences. Elizabeth Cole, Dannijo, and Lulu Frost are three designers that I am constantly swooning over. Their designs are unique and are the perfect addition to any outfit!  I am seriously coveting the Lulu Frost tassel necklace and Dannijo ID bracelet! All of these pieces can be worn day or night. See how I would style them:

TGIF y'all! 
I am ending the week with another link up! 3 in one week? A little much, I know, but what can I say? I just love being part of such an amazing blogging community, and I am so thankful for each and every opportunity I get to connect with other bloggers and work with amazing brands :) But I digress, as many of you may have read in my post Monday, Amber from Real Girl Glam has invited me to join her for one of her Real Girl Style Challenges. This week all of us Real Girl's are tackling the denim cutoff trend, so head on over to Amber's blog and check out how the rest of the lovely ladies styled their denim cutoffs. Also, if you are sharing your take on this trend don't forget to link up! 

How about 5 posts in one week? I must say I am a little pleased with myself. I don't think that has happened since 2012 ;)

bloggers do it better-- high waisted skinnies

Wednesday, July 10, 2013



Jeans: gifted via American Eagle (here), Shirt: Madewell (old, similar here), Shoes: Prabal Gurung for Target (no longer available, similar here), Bag: J. Crew (here), Sunglasses: RayBan, Necklace: J. Crew Factory, Bracelets: J. Crew, Anthro, David Yurman, & Sarah Chloe, Match: Michael Kors









I am SO excited to have teamed up with American Eagle and three other lovely ladies to style their new hi-rise jeggings! I will admit, I normally only steer towards jeggings when I am looking to wear a pair of boots over my jeans. There is just something about the skin tight fabric all the way down to my ankles that makes me slightly uncomfortable, but all of that has changed thanks to these bad boys from AE! The fit of these jeans is perfection. The higher waist and the wash are so flattering, and the fabric allows just the right amount of stretch; they will definitely become a staple in my closet. For today's collaboration I decided to pair a looser fitting silk tee to complement the skinny leg. When styling a pair of jeans like this volume is key, because they are so form fitting you want to keep everything up top on the looser side. I cannot wait to pair them with a flowy crop top to beat the summer heat or chunky sweater come fall!
