I’ve been eyeing these fab headphones since IFBCON and finally swooped them up–definitely worth it.

These Prada wedges (similar) hold a special spot in my heart. You know when you love something and then it sells out, and you’re so mad at yourself for not getting it? Then it magically pops up on Rue La La one morning, and it was so meant to be? Yeah, that’s our story.

I love to accumulate “easy-chic” dresses, that exude comfort, and don’t require many accessories. They serve as a major go-to when sunny weather hits–if you’re in a hurry, it can easily be thrown on without much thinking required. Basic hues and styles are essential, but bold color and texture make a great hybrid–going from beach to brunch. Being on the shorter side, this tank dress makes a great pool/beach coverup, pairing well with any hue.

Denim for Days

Denim for Days

After a week of sporting Fall scarves and sweaters, it finally feels like Spring! I couldn’t wait to put to use some of my Spring finds. A denim jacket is the ultimate staple, it’s practically the mother to the chambray shirt–just as fabulous, yet it goes with literally everything.. and them some. I have a few denim jackets of medium and dark washes and a variety of lengths, but never really stumbled upon a great light wash. I was so excited when I received this Spring essential from AG Adriano Goldschmied. It was perfect. I apologize in advance for excessive wear.

Spring has finally sprung in Western Pennsylvania, and I couldn’t be more excited. Warm weather puts me in such a good mood, from running outside in the sunshine, driving with the window down or seeing fresh flowers. I’ve been itching to sport my favorite Spring styles, and mixed prints were top on my list.

I bought these shoes for my friend’s wedding and were the most comfortable heels I have worn! The gold and silver combo make them the perfect hybrid for any occasion or ensemble. I love throwing on a statement shoe to transform an outfit of simple staples. And who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

Spending the week in warm weather and sunshine was the perfect way to start off the new year. A start to my Spring wardrobe, and new beauty additions are such a tease when having to finish off the next couple months of Winter. Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray is my new favorite must-have.

Holiday Skirt

This shimmery mini has been a Holiday staple. From casual to glam, it adds shine to any ensemble. I love throwing it on with a pair of heels, it’s feminine and fun, but can easily be toned down with a scarf or tee.
