GOLDEN GLOW

Vita Liberata Body Blur

I’m so excited to write this post because I feel like I’ve finally nailed down the holy grail of self tanning products after MANY mistrials. In my younger (more foolish) years I was a sun goddess. I’m talking basking in the sun slathered in baby oil, and cat napping in tanning beds. ICK!  Not a […]

SHOES BETWEEN SEASONS

Madewell white tie-front shirt, Zara white slingback heels, illesteva sunglasses, pilcro jeans, Rebecca Minkoff small love crossbody

Whenever the seasons change I’m always caught off guard with one wardrobe item: SHOES!  I used to wear boots too far into spring, and then open toe shoes into fall- it’s a vicious cycle.  There’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable or not put together because of your footwear.  This spring I’m making it a point […]

EMBROIDERED TEES

  There is nothing I love more than a simple tee.  I feel like it’s a never ending quest to find the perfect fit and style.  If you ever come across that combo I suggest grabbing every color that suits you, because they are hard to come by! Lately, I’ve been into embroidery and looking for […]

SPRING STRIPES

Spring Banana Republic Stripe Flutter Shirt

  I’m looking out my window writing this and the scene doesn’t say spring at all- more like piles of snow and whipping winds, but I have faith it will be here soon! I love stripes for all seasons and this top feels especially fresh and spring-esque in blue & white.  The ruffle detail adds […]

CORDUROY CRUSH

Free People Jumper Dress, Black over the knee suede boots, round ray bans

I’ve been looking for pieces to transition from winter into spring and this corduroy jumper immediately caught my eye.  I could instantly see it being worn year round, and it has pockets (I really admire a good pocket situation).  I love pieces that I can get good wear out of and carry across seasons.  I […]

DETAILED BLAZER

  I am loving this blazer from Storets right now.  I really like the added detail of the red epaulets and big gold buttons- they set it apart from a typical black blazer.  This is a versatile piece that can be styled with leggings and boots/tennis shoes, or a dress and heels.  It’s easy to […]

TGS WINTER BOOK CLUB

Let’s talk books!  With the busyness of the holidays it can seem too chaotic to find time to read, but I say BS! Pay attention to what eats up your day and you’ll find you could have read a chapter or two instead of scrolling your phone, or watching re-runs of reality T.V. (guilty).  Anytime someone […]

FAUX FUR SEASON

I am completely NOT okay with being cold.  Ever. When I was younger, I never owned a coat and hated wearing them.  My friends and I would suffer through frigid weather in camisole tops and zip-up hooded sweatshirts (Hi friends! ;)).  So dumb.  It makes me cold just thinking about it. These days I’m all […]
