It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a retro-inspired piece, especially during summertime travels. When venturing to charming historic towns, I always feel it’s the perfect time to become more playful with my wardrobe and allow those vintage vibes to shine. The moment I saw this sunshine yellow jumpsuit at Anthropologie, I instantly knew it would be coming with me on all of my summer escapes. There’s something about an all over print (that slightly reminds me of something you’d see on a 1970’s style wallpaper) that I just can’t resist. Paired with a culotte-style leg and a crossbody…

Firsts with Fossil

There are many things in a girl’s life that she will always remember. Her first dance, her first pair of high heels, and if you’re anything like me, the first time you became infatuated with the classiness of luxury accessories. I worked in retail when I was a college, and the store across from mine was Fossil. I remember standing in the front of the store I worked in, staring over into Fossil, daydreaming about what it would be like to be one of the girls walking out of the store with their signature timepiece in tow. Fast forward nearly…

Once spring and summer hits, it means wedding season is in full swing. Chances are, there’s probably at least one on your calendar for this season. Being in the midst of wedding planning myself, wedding wardrobes are currently front and center on my mind – including what dress code will be (casual, black tie, etc.) and picturing all of my guests – and what they’ll be wearing – on my big day! When planning a look for attending a wedding, there’s a few things to take into consideration. Firstly, is it formal or casual? Take tips from how fancy the…

A Little Update

When I sat down to write this post, starred at my computer screen for about thirty minutes before finally deciding what I wanted to say. Today wasn’t a day I wanted to speak to how much I love my mustard-colored mini (though I’m honestly totally obsessed with it), but a day that I wanted to have a life chat with all of you about what’s been happening over the last several months. The Blog If you’ve followed me for a while, you may notice that both my Instagram and the blog have been a little quieter than normal. When I…

Stay All Summer Makeup Routine

Wearing: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Besos Wearing: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Aria Wearing: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Baci When it comes to my summertime makeup routine, one thing’s for sure: I know it needs to stay in place all day! Walking around town with mascara melting off your face isn’t a good look for anyone. In the past, I’ve mostly just avoided wearing heavy makeup in the summer. When I’m in and out of the pool, riding bikes around town, or being lazy in my backyard, how much did I need anyways? However, every…

The Scent of Summertime

The Scent of Summertime

With each changing of season it brings about changes to my daily routine. While I’ve already spoken to my shift in wardrobe and accessories when summer rolls around, there is one other aspect of my daily lifestyle that changes: my beauty routine. While I have regular favorites when it comes to makeup, I can’t help but love to experiment with new scents for summertime. The warm sun-soaked air and blooming flowers inspires me to change my fragrance into something more light and crisp to compliment the changes in my surroundings. The moment I smelled Miu Miu’s L’eau Bleue for the first…

Summertime Staples

Wearing a nautical look for summertime is something that will never grow old. I’ll never tire of pairing my favorite striped tee with cut-offs or a pair of high waisted shorts. There’s something so quintessentially summer about the look that it’s one of the ensembles I find myself reaching for the most this time of year. While finding a striped top or a perfect pair of shorts isn’t exactly rocket science, there are so many to choose from that it can, in fact, be a little overwhelming. Feeling inspired by this top from Chicwish, I’ve rounded up the best of the best…

Magic of a Wrap Dress

Magic of a Wrap Dress

If there’s one dress that looks good on just about anyone, it’s bound to be the wrap dress. Not only is it a timeless and classic silhouette, it’s also as universally flattering as the color black, and as versatile as a pair of denim. Made popular by Diane von Furstenberg herself in the seventies, the wrap dress has become a staple in every modern women’s wardrobe. Not only is it the perfect go-to for the working woman, this frock has also become an off-duty essential for weekend wear. Geometric styles and solids are well-suited for the office, while blooming prints are…

Keeping Time with Tory Burch

I’ve written a lot lately about the significance of a timepiece on completing a look. Whether you’re headed to the office and need a sophisticated and chic piece or dressing your ensemble down with a less formal leather option, there’s a watch for every outfit and every occasion these days. With summer on the horizon and escapes to a sunnier place in mind, my weekend getaway wardrobe suddenly takes a shift from business and briefcases, to brunch and beach wear. While updating your wardrobe with the season’s chicest sundresses and straw hats may come naturally, updating your timepiece to compliment…
