One of my favorite things about going back to school was always shopping for school supplies and getting organized (total nerd, yet so OCD) Whether it’s school or the office, these glammed up versions of everyday essentials will make anyone excited for their first day.
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.

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.

This week I had the fabulous opportunity to be featured as Copious’s Copious Crush. Copious is an awesome site to sell your duds after a closet clean out or a random Tuesday where nothing in your closet seems to be working. It’s a great way to snatch pieces from your most stylish friends. Check out my fun interview here!
This week has been filled with style, beauty and amazing new friends! Day 1 of the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference included panels of some of the industry’s most influential. I had so much fun getting my DIY on, sampling Spring beauty, discovering a new obsession (fashionable headphones..crazy chic!) and checking out fab jewelry.

Fekkai introduced their PrX Reparatives collection. Fortified keratin and silk proteins make up the ultimate weapon for damaged hair.
MailChimp had the ultimate DIY bar to create a chic tees. Why did I ever stop using a bedazzler?
I’ve never been one for on-ear headphones, but Monster has completely changed my perspective. The glam Diamond Tear styles and interchangeable headbands totally won me over, added to my wish list!
I love intricate jewelry, and Alex and Ani has a wide array to add your own personal touch.
I love all of the new product I received from Bare Minerals. Their Spring beauty collection is fun and flirty with punches of bright vibrant hues.
We left with a collection of great new products to try (and some of my personal faves!)

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.
