100th Post

Happy Friday gals and guys! I can't believe this is my 100th post! I started this blog back in October, not really knowing what would come of it and just seeing where the wind took me... and here I am, 7 months later and 100 posts deep.  I just want to thank you all for following along and being so supportive - it means so much and is one of the big reasons I continue to blog! Here's to many more 100 posts!

Side note - I'm so thrilled that I FINALLY knocked these jeans off of my "To Buy" list (because yes... I have one of those saved in my iPhone Notes app) - they were also featured on one of my Weekend Wish Lists (can be found here)!

Resort 2014 Wear

Can't believe we are alreadyyy talking about Resort 2014 wear! I was taking a peak at some of the collections that were presented recently and I'm DYING over Tory Burch and Moschino Cheap and Chic's collections!! 

Tory Burch Resort 2014

I'm squealing with delight over all of the floral, lace, and tweed! The combination of the patterns and pastels just oozes chic romanticism... to die for! And I would like love both of these big tote bags pahleassse!

... more pastels, florals, and lace details! Also, love the patterns, the bright floral pants (gimmeee) and I'm kind of dying over this daisy sweater and these daisy print pants! This collection is still feminine with a little edge - I love it!

Stripes & Sequins


Shirt: Ann Taylor (old) // Skirt: LOFT // Shoes: Blake Scott (old) // Bag: Coach // Necklaces: NYLA STAR, BCBG // Watch: MK // Bracelets: J. Crew Factory, Anthropologie // Rings: gifted // Earrings: little shop in NYC // Sunnies: Color in Optics

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! After a dreary weekend in NYC and MA, it seems the weather is finallyyyy (dare I say it?) warming up and it's about time, since it is almost June! 

I am so happy I was finally able to pull this lovely sequin mini out of the closet, I just love it! Keeping in the same color family, I paired it with this lovely striped blouse I bought at Ann Taylor on sale a few months ago - I loved it so much, I went back and bought the same shirt in another color combo (I couldn't resist)! 

Hope you all have a great day! And... anyone else happy it's a short week?!

Weekend Wish List

Happy Memorial Day Weekend all! Whether you stayed around locally or headed out for a weekend trip, I hope you all have a wonderful time! If you can get some shopping done, which, let's be serious, is always a possibility (or a mission?), here are some things I'm loving!

Basically EVERYTHING from J. Crew's New Arrivals - but specifically this 'Roller Girl' shirt and shorts (which I would definitely rock together), and this Amor tee paired with these super cute striped shorts
This Bauble Bar necklace is deliciously wonderful
These are on my "Must Buy List" while back in NYC this weekend
Still in desperate need of boyfriend jeans, and I'm really loving this pair
Obsessing over this maxi
A girl can dream....

Mixed


Shirt: H&M (old) // Skirt: gifted // Belt: J. Crew // Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // Shoes: Nine West // Ring: gifted // Necklaces: Nordstrom Rack, Claire's (superrr old) // Watch: MK // Bracelet: J. Crew Factory // Sunnies: Colors in Optics

Happy Monday (well... as happy as Monday's can be)! 

When my sister and I moved home (she from college, me from NYC), we seriouslyyyy purged our closets. Thankfully, before she decided to purge this gingham skirt, she asked if I wanted it... which of course, I said "Absolutely!" I paired it with one of my favorite floral shirts that I snagged at H&M over in England while I was studying abroad a few years ago! The patent leather belt adds a little POP and helps create a defining line between the two patterns. 

Hope you all have a great day! Xo

Weekend Wish List

Happy Sunday all! My apologies for not being able to set this post up yesterday, I was veryyy busy buying my first car (it's a much longer process that I had originally thought...)!! Now that THAT is out of the way... and I am on a serious shopping diet (sad face)... I can post what's on my wishlist this week! A girl's gotta be able to, at least, window shop, right?! 

This just looks super comfy.
Loving this J. Crew necklace!
These are a MUST... seriously swooning over them!
A white leather bucket bag? Absolutely!
In need of a bright dress.
Shall I hop on this mirror lenses trend?
I just think this is the cutest and super chic!
Love this jacquard mini!

Hope you all have a great end to your weekend! Xo

Pink Monochrome


Shirt: J. Crew (old) // Skirt: J. Crew Factory // Boots: Hunter // Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // Necklaces: Laila Rowe, NYLA STAR // Watch: MK // Bracelets: F21 (old) // Rings: gifted, vintage // Earrings: Piperlime // Sunnies: Colors in Optics


Happy Tuesday everyone! I don't know about you guys, but I'm always thinking pink! So, I figured what better way to style a monochromatic look than with one of my fav colors! The rain boots were necessary as it was raining cats and dogs on-and-off last weekend up here in the Boston area! Also, I just picked this white beaded necklace up at Laila Row a few weeks ago (only $16!!!) and I'm in love! It can be worn with anything and have constantly been reaching to wear it with just about any outfit! Hope you all had a great day! Xo

Boston Strong


Tough. Proud. Brave. Free. Boston

I can't believe it's already been 4 weeks since the Boston Marathon bombings.  While it was a sad and horrific day for all of us, our city rebounded quickly and has been in instant 'Help' mode since. Rue La La made these wonderful shirts, in which all proceeds go directory to the Emergency Medical Fund at Mass General Hospital! When I saw these online, I knew it was a perfect and easy way to help out!

  Waving proud outside our house. #BostonStrong #USA

Shirt: Rue La La // Jeans: 7FAM (old) // Blazer: Gap // Shoes: Nike (old) Necklace: NYLA STAR // Watch: MK // Bracelet: J. Crew Factory // Earrings: J. Crew // Ring: KiraKira Jewelry // Sunnies: Ray-Ban
