Wanderlust...

Monday, August 29, 2016


Traveling is by far one of my most favorite things to do. I keep a running list of places I want to visit on my phone and am always looking at Pinterest to add new places to that list. For the next nine days I'll be traveling around Europe with Mike and his family. We are headed to the Algarve coast in Portugal, Geneva, Switzerland, and Paris! I am so excited to explore all these new places. 

Be sure to follow along on Instagram, I won't be posting here until I return so that's where you can find me for now! 


P.S. I found this image on Pinterest and have no idea who to credit for it, if you know, please let me know!

Transitioning to Fall

Friday, August 26, 2016









SHOP THE POST:

Though I am always sad to see summer go (and am not yet ready to admit it's about to happen) fall is absolutely my favorite time of the year. The air is crisp and refreshing and dressing is cozy and layered. There is nothing better than walking around in jeans, booties, and a sweater while the leaves whip around you with a cool breeze. Of course with a pumpkin coffee in hand. 

The past two days have felt like fall. It's been in the low 70s with hardly any humidity. Which is quite the change from the 90s and 90% humidity we had been having. Transitioning you outfits to fall is always a little awkward, I feel like I'm either too dressed for "summer" or dressed too premature for fall. My favorite way to combat this is to keep one item "summer" and one item "fall". In this case, I paired a favorite pair of denim shorts with a short sleeve tee and cozy cardigan. It was a cool day so the extra layer kept me the perfect temperature without looking like I was in the wrong season.

Pink Tassel Necklace

Wednesday, August 24, 2016









SHOP THE POST:
Tassel Necklace / Tank Top / Jeans / Sandals / Sunglasses / Louis Vuitton MM Neverfull / Earrings

I always try to venture away from pink and purchase pieces in different colors. But, I just love pink! I purchased this top in the spring and it's been one of my most worn pieces this summer. It's so bright fun, and light, making it the perfect summer top! 

When I saw this necklace tassel necklace the other day I had the turquoise color in my cart (which I do love!) but at the last minute switched it to the pink. Even though it basically blends in with this top, I think the monochromatic look works! I've also worn this necklace with a basic white tee and with a black dress. It's super easy to dress up or down and can easily be worn for all different occasions. I especially love the chunky chain and the beaded tassel, it's just perfect!

The Perfect LBD

Monday, August 22, 2016







SHOP THE POST:
Dress c/o / Sunglasses / Heels / Necklace / J. Crew Clutch

If you read any list about "must haves" for your closet, a little black dress or LBD is usually top of the list. For ages people have been saying every girl should have a classic black dress that can be used for any occasion. While I do have my fair share of black dresses, I've never really owned one I felt super confident in that could be worn for multiple occasions. To be honest, most are from college and probably not appropriate for my life now. Note to self, donate those :)

I worked with Kohl's a few weeks back and picked up this dress for that collaboration. It was kind of a last minute decision and I wasn't really sure how I felt about it. And then I put it on. This dress is magic. From the small lace detailing around the top hem to the accordion pleats, this dress is classic, flattering, and has the perfect about of subtle romantic vibes. I instantly wanted to grab Mike and run off for a romantic dinner!
