    Just Wear It: Jungle Goddess Vibes

    Too often I find that I have pieces of clothing I really LOVE, but rarely wear because I’m so afraid I’ll ruin it. Or maybe I want to save it for a super “special” occasion. But then, what’s the point of having it in the first place?? So I’m working on not only wearing the pieces I love, but also getting rid of anything that doesn’t bring me joy (even if it’s “practical”!). If you’ve read the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, you’ll know what I’m talking about 😉 I still have a ways to go on simplification, and letting go of things that no longer serve me (both in…

    When Old Becomes New

    I turned a friends old dress into a new outfit today with this insanely comfortable Madewell piece. I could live in this dress. Seriously. It feels like a mix of preppy (loafers) meets glam (in black patent leather), with a feminine finish (Grandma’s pearls and thin belt). I’m definitely excited to experiment with this piece. Thinking about making it more casual with white canvas tennis shoes or dressing it up with a black blazer and heels! And thank you Hagar for letting me dig through your clothes!! Gotta love a good find like this:)

    Colorblocking at Work

    It’s fun to pull something old (skirt) and new (shirt – Forever 21) together for a different work look. This week I went for some colorblocking with my top and even shoes to match! I could hardly believe it worked out so well haha. Plus a neutral colored statement necklace to add a little a little spunk, but not look too busy 🙂

    Summer is for Short Shorts

    Summer is for short shorts. And white canvas shoes. Even though they still get dirty. These are my absolute favorites from Zara if you can find them in store…high-waisted and stretchy:)

    Coral, Mint and Floral

    Just a few of my favorite things to brighten up the day:) Coral, mint and florals…Banana Republic cardigan, Target dress, Lulu’s watch, Target low pointed-toe heels, Target earrings. (Target tends to treat me well I guess! haha)

    It’s Maxi Dress Season!

    Dinner on the patio. Warm air. Cool breeze. Maxi dress. It fits together so well. Paired this one from French Connection with tan wedges and my grandma’s pearls:)

    Spring Layers!

    Because that’s what you need when it’s 30 degrees at the time you wake up and 60 degrees by the afternoon…layers! I love how Citizens of Humanity jeans fit, but they’re still a little expensive, so I have to choose wisely haha. But I was excited when these came up discounted on Rue La La since they are both high-waisted and floral…two of my favorite things! Sold. I had to balance out the print with some solid colors…a cream shirt and wedges (Cole Haan), coral cardigan (LOFT), blue scarf and over-sized light denim jacket (Forever 21). Done!

    Print and Pop

    Love to add a little pop of color to my day (and my prints;), so went with polka dot pants (Target), a plain white tee (H&M), khaki wedges (Nine West), Forever 21 necklace, random bracelet, and a bright cardigan (Banana Republic) to top it off! Come on spring…

    Vintage Shoe Revival

    I love vintage. You definitely have to be picky in your search and selection, but it carries some serious potential! I think it adds an element of timeless beauty to any look. I’ve collected a few pieces over the years that are always random discoveries, but so fun:) One being these brown leather pumps…the shoe was literally separated from the sole when I bought them (very cheaply I might add!). But I brought them to a shoe repair shop and they were able to completely remake the sole for maybe $20. The shoes were already perfectly worn in, I didn’t even get blisters, which is a rarity for me and heels. I had to…
