Ruffles and Leather

Thursday, April 27, 2017

spring, 2017, OOTD, leather, ruffles, statement lip, sparkly,

Hello all! What a week it has been! I cannot wait for the weekend to start tomorrow. As you can probably tell, my style tends toward the girly/ feminine side, especially when it comes to accessories and details. I love anything sparkly and pink and ruffles are my new favorite detail for summer.

As much as I love these aspects now, girly has not always been my go-to. It is actually a pretty recent style change and one that has been so fun to explore and experiment with.

However, every now and then, I like to toughen up some of my girly details. This burgundy leather skirt is the perfect way to do that. The cut is pretty classic with the little flare and the pleats. But the color is unexpected and makes it feel more modern. Plus, the leather is the perfect combination with the otherwise girly ruffles of this top.

As usual, once I started, I couldn't stop. So big clip-ons and a sparkly purse were necessary additions. Plus, I've been very into experimenting with lipsticks lately and this color matched my skirt so perfectly, I couldn't resist.

A 100% girly outfit has it's place and time, but mixing it up is part of the fun of fashion. Don't be afraid to mix pieces that don't always go together. That is typically how I find my favorite combinations! Until next time, XO



Pink and Rainy

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

2017, spring, rain, pink, statement lip, OOTD, trench coat,

I don't know about y'all and your weather, but it seems like it's been raining here forever! It has also been cooler the last few days, which has been a nice chance to wear the last of my spring clothes before summer hits.

Whenever it is rainy, I try and brighten up my outfit with sparkles or color. That way, even though it is dreary outside, I don't feel blah or bored with my outfit. This pink lipstick is the perfect way to add a pop to any outfit.

This lipstick is Nars and it is so easy to apply. It comes in about 100 different colors and it stays on all day. I couldn't gush about it more and would highly recommend it.

It seemed fitting with this outfit to not only add color, but also some sparkles. I am so glad that brooches are finally coming back in. I have loved them for years, but they are very difficult to shop for when they aren't trendy!

I like wearing multiple brooches at the same time or mixing them with necklaces. This gives them a more modern feel and they are always a fun statement piece. Here's to hoping it's sunny tomorrow! Until next time, XO

What I'm Up To

Monday, April 24, 2017

Watching...Big Little Lies- As usual, I am a little behind, but I just watched the first episode of Big Little Lies and I am already obsessed! No spoilers please as it will probably be a while before I finish it all! 

Listening to...Stay by Zedd/ Alessia Cara- This song has been on repeat for the past couple of weeks during my commute. It is the perfect singing/ dancing in the car song and has also made a great addition to my running playlist. 


Reading...I'll Drink to That by Betty Halbreich- I just started this book and already adore Betty. She is a personal shopper at Bergdorf's and I can't wait to read all about her life. I'll keep you updated on how it is! Until next time, XO

Lots of Pink and More Life Updates

Sunday, April 23, 2017

2017, personal, fashion, OOTD, ebay, consignment

Hello all! I hope you have had a fabulous weekend! Mine has been eventful and I am definitely enjoying the excuse to stay in because of the cold, rainy weather here. As you now know, I am moving to London in September and I couldn't be more excited. It is going to be an incredible opportunity and I am excited to be living in London again.

However, moving to another country does put a bit of a damper in my plans to start an online consignment store. If you don't remember, check out my announcement here. Now I have the problem of having a lot of inventory, a website that I was hoping to launch this summer, and the more pressing issue of needing to delay this project for the near future.

Instead of completely delaying the project, I have decided to sell a majority of the spring, summer, and fall clothes as well as jewelry and purses I have on eBay

Nothing has been posted yet, but I am hoping to post the first batch of clothes in the next week and then post new items fairly regularly. Here is a link to my eBay store and make sure to check back periodically in case you see anything you like!

Also, feel free to contact me if there are any specific items that you have seen on the blog that you are interested in! You never know, they might be something I have already set aside to sell. Until next time, XO

All About Neutrals

Thursday, April 20, 2017

2017, OOTD, neutrals, black, sparkly, fashion, spring,

Hello all! I think by now we can all admit that I have an obsession with everything pink. However, it hasn't always been like that. In fact, I refused to even wear pink until I got to college! I guess now, I'm making up for lost time! HA! 
2017, OOTD, neutrals, black, sparkly, fashion, spring,

But, in all seriousness, pink and really colors in general are a newer addition to my wardrobe. My first inclination, especially if I'm not paying addition is to wear all neutrals. For me, that doesn't necessarily mean all black, but more that there is not a statement pop of color.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love that pink and other colors are now a part of my wardrobe. But, at the same time, there is something to be said about an all neutral outfit. The lack of color always makes me feel a little classier in any outfit. 
2017, OOTD, neutrals, black, sparkly, fashion, spring,

Wearing all neutrals is also an excellent opportunity to break some of those tried and true fashion rules that I don't believe in like not mixing metals, not wearing black and navy together, or not mixing black and brown. When you have an all neutral outfit, these combinations normally pop and look amazing together.

So give the color a break every once in a while and give neutral a try! Until next time, XO

What I'm Up To

Monday, April 17, 2017

Watching...Spotlight- I know I'm a little behind, but I haven't had the chance to sit down and really devote my energy to a movie in so long! Well, I finally found the time and I watched Spotlight. Before you ask, yes, of course it's on Netflix and you should go watch it immediately. It was absolutely incredible and I didn't reach for the distraction of my phone the entire. Quite a feat I must say! 

Listening to...new Harry Styles- His first solo single since One Direction, Sign of the Times is now available and trust me, it is different from everything else playing on the radio right now. He also premiered a new song on Saturday Night Live. What do y'all think about his new sound?


Reading...Wait for Me! by Deborah Mitford- I just recently got on this Mitford sisters kick and bought a bunch of books about them. This is the first one I've had time to pick-up and it is so interesting! Part auto-biography and part biography of the rest of the sisters, hearing about the family and their lives from the youngest sister's perspective is fascinating.

Until next time and don't forget to leave recommendations in the comments below! XO 

Some exciting news about my next chapter

Friday, April 14, 2017

2017, OOTD, personal, spring, over the knee boots,

Happy Friday! I am so excited that it's Friday and even more excited about this blog post because I have some very big news to share with you. As I have been alluding to for the past couple of weeks, I have something I want to tell y'all and I've been waiting for the perfect time.

Happily, that time is now, so I'm just going to dive right in! As you know, I graduated from college with a degree in art history in May of 2016. Since then, I've worked with an art gallery, a non-profit, and an auction house, where I currently work full time.

However, starting in September, I will be moving to London for a year to get my masters in art history from Christie's Education. I am so excited about this next chapter of my life and even more excited about living in London again! 
2017, OOTD, personal, spring, over the knee boots,

If you have any suggestions for things to do in London or know any one I can get coffee with, I'd love to hear about it. There will also be way more posts leading up to my move with lots of details so not to worry! I am so excited and so glad to share this with y'all! Until next time, XO
