Etsy is filled with such fun and creative finds! Last year I made some glitter clothespins, and have consistently used them as food label stands at all my soirées. I took it up a notch lately and added pushpins and magnets to glam up my office and fridge. They’re so great to hang photos, invitations, business cards, and inspiration. They add a chic touch to a classroom, home or office and can be used as pretty decor at weddings, bridal and baby showers, birthday and graduation parties to hang photos and banners. A dose of glam and glitter adds a chic touch to just about anything!

It may feel like Fall in Western Pennsylvania, but fresh cherries mean Summer isn’t far away.

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.

It’s no surprise that I have an infatuation with J.Crew, considering most of my style posts include at least one (or 5) pieces from the retailer. Their newest Style Guide is completely swoon-worthy. From rich satin and velvety hues, to stripes, glitter, tweed & polkadots-every item is worth lusting over. I’m sharing some of my top picks, what are yours?
