Maybe it’s the baby coming, but I have been particularly partial to hues of light blue, as of late! I love incorporating it with neutrals for Spring. Happy Tuesday everyone!

Sporty chic style is in full force this Fall, and I’m loving the baseball cap trend. The girly chic spin on the classic staple can easily glam up a casual ensemble or mask a bad hair day. I recently scooped up the faux leather version from Target, a great addition to Fall’s edgy style and a steal at under $13!

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.

When it comes to building the ultimate versatile wardrobe, knowing when to splurge and when to save is key. But, when you’re able to save on quality wardrobe staples, you hit the jackpot. Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is the ultimate event to building basics that will get you through the entire season. The rest?.. Is a piece of cake. The fashionable event happens once per year where select Fall and Winter items actually go on sale, (for a limited time) before they are full priced. That time to splurge?.. is now.

Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal - Metallic Trend

Shorts | Sweater | Sunnies | Pouch | Wedges | Nail Polish | Sweatshirt | Belt | Sneakers | Sandals | Clutch

I’m all about the full blown metallics for Spring. It makes a great statement piece, to make any ensemble shine. Gold and bronze metallics make chic beach accessories, and silver is such a chic pairing with black & white or a pop of neon.

DIY Glitter Tote - The Subtle Statement

Forever 21 has been on their game lately with their faux leather totes. Many I’ve spotted recently are a close second to the real thing (including this Valentino lookalike.) A few weeks ago, I snagged this classic black tote (under $30!), and thought it would be a great DIY (similar here). Pulling inspiration from this fab Reed Krakoff bag, I added a bit more glitz with a statement stripe.

DIY Glitter Tote - The Subtle Statement

What You Need: Tote + Mod Podge + Martha Stewart Glitter + Sponge Brush + Painters Tape

  1. Apply two strips of painters tape, 1.5″ apart.
  2. Paint Mod Podge between the two pieces of tape, using a sponge brush.
  3. Immediately apply a generous amount of fine grain glitter on the Mod Podge.
  4. Let dry, then gently remove tape.

Happy Crafting!

Trim the Tee

We’ve had such warm weather this week in Pennsylvania. It was the perfect time to break out this leather trimmed tee. Great for day or night, I love the edginess.
