I’m starting a statement earring obsession for Spring. This ear candy is definitely vaca worthy.

Can’t wait to sport these colorful statement heels.

Good Seed Crackers

My first attempt at making homemade crackers. Rosemary, pepper and pink Himalayan salt make for an insanely good flavor!

Loving soft pastels this Spring. This statement necklace has the perfect dose.

Butter London Polish Remover

My typical polish change routine has been transformed with this acetone-free lacquer remover that actually smells good! 

Friday Finds

20130201-010230.jpg

  1. Zoya Nail Polish in Tobey. Lately I have been all about pops of Barbie pink. This non-toxic color is a new obsession.
  2. butter LONDON in Fiver & Fruit Machine. Remember mood rings? My nail polish mood changes season to season. In the Summer, I want candy pops of color, during the Winter I crave deep, dark hues, and in the Spring I soft pastels are my signature. I adore the 3-Free brands new Spring hues. Pastel shades easily compliment a mani-pedi, I love the punchy lilac hue for my toes & icy mint on my hands.
  3. JewelMint Flores Collar Necklace. This pop of neon is the perfect edgy piece to pull any Spring look together.
  4. The Middle Part. I decided to change it up at a trip to the salon yesterday, and opted for a middle part for the first time since junior high. I’m loving these fab middle parts as well. [1, 2, 3]

Navy & Pink

Blazer: Michael Kors (similar)  /  Top: J.Crew Crewcuts  /  Pants: Target  /  Shoes: Adrienne Vittadini via TJ Maxx  /  Necklace: ILY Couture  /  Ring: JewelMint  /  Nails: Julep Alma (Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection)

It was *love at first sight* when I spotted these sparkly pumps adorned with bows. They are the epitome of glam. It’s safe to say this statement shoe will add sparkle to any ensemble.

 

TIP: Don’t limit yourself to Women’s sizes. J.Crew Crewcuts boys clothes sometimes have a better fit than Women’s when it comes to button-front tops! Added bonus: the price tag is usually significant lower, also!

Ocean Blues

Thinking of everyone in the NYC area that’s been affected by this horrible storm! Thankful for the amazing people who helped. Hope that everyone is safe! xo

I flew back to Pittsburgh last night, but today’s post is yesterday’s outfit in the Florida sun. My attempt at packing light worked well aside from the fact that I somehow snuck 9 pairs of shoes in my suitcase. (Maybe next time?) I packed one statement necklace that’ s versatility spanned from yesterday’s black & white polka dot popover shirt to dinner with this Vince LBD and nude pumps.

Polka Dots & Mint

The polka dot find from the J.Crew event I hosted has become a serious asset to my wardrobe. From a chilly night in Pennsylvania last week, to a sunny day in Florida this week (yes, you CAN wear white denim/dresses/etc. year round!), this printed top screams multifunction. Eager to share with you, I searched the dotted popover but found that it had been sold out online. Luckily, I found similar finds that are seasonless must-haves, too!

**Update, the J.Crew Polka Dot Peplum is back in stock! Swoop it up while you can.

Last week, I Instagramed my budget buys of metallic denim, each under $27. I’ve been on the lookout for a great pair of metallic denim this season. I happened to be in Target the other day, and spotted these fabulous shimmery black skinnies. The sparkling sheen gives off a coated denim look. These skinny jeans are so comfortable, I could sleep in them. Did I mention they’re under $23? Major fab find.
