adding color to a neutral wardrobe

1 Permalink 2

  ever since i snagged these cute little rust shorts (seen styled here), i've been inspired to add a little bit of color to my otherwise neutral wardrobe. i love how fresh the orange-color feels, especially with my slightly less pale skin (let's be honest, i'll never be tan) and when paired with denim blues or crisp ...

  if there's something i've learned over my years of shopping, it's that i love a well-designed store. there's just something about an open layout, well-styled mannequins, color-coordinated shelves, and of course, dreamy lighting that gets me. every. single. time. this weekend while we were up at the charming lido marina village celebrating father's day with my ...

  now i know i wasn't going to buy too many off-the-shoulder pieces this season, but i caved and bought a second garment in the style. whoopsies! i had admired this chambray dress from j.crew's summer collection ever since i saw it modeled in this post on their blog (btw, did you know j.crew has a blog?!), so ...

summer trend: critters & fruit

4 Permalink 4

  besides straw everything (hats! totes! sandals!), one of the biggest trends i've noticed pop up just in time for the season are garments adorned with either critters (various forms of sea life, birds, etc.) or fruit (lemons, berries, watermelon, oh my!). these pieces can add a bit of whimsy to anyone's wardrobe, not to mention, ...

my favorite straw hats

  if it's one thing i'll never tire of, it's hats. straw hats, in particular. my collection currently stands at six and it's only bound to grow from there (#sorryimnotsorry). my latest addition is this cuyana hat, which is actually a steal at under $80. i've seen it often worn on two of my style crushes (julia & ...

statement sleeves

  remember when statement necklaces were all the rage? i'll be the first to admit that i embraced that trend aggressively and actually just donated most of my collection since i have plenty of natalie borton creations to keep me accessorized these days. while i'm no longer rocking statement necklaces, i do still enjoy making a statement with my outfit. nowadays ...

jump(suit)ing into a new year

  last weekend we celebrated my 32nd birthday. since the day kind of snuck up on me, i hadn't really thought too much about what i wanted to do on the actual day, but a few days before i decided that a little road trip up the coast to orange county sounded like the best idea. so ...

summer blues

  fun fact: i had originally planned on taking these photos in front of a blue wall to really drive home the "summer blues" title of this post, but once we got to the location, there were far too many people around for me to feel comfortable (i get stage fright with too large of a ...

red, white & fruit

  now that memorial day has come and gone, i feel like summer is officially here. that means two (of many) things: white denim and summer fruit. S and i attended a barreBQ (a barbecue with my favorite barre babes) a couples weeks back and i was in charge of bringing the fruit salad. i may ...
