embracing hoop earrings

2 Permalink 2

  if memory serves me correctly, i got my ears pierced in fifth grade. at the time it felt like a very rite-of-passage thing to do (oh and along with most of america, i'd assume, i went to claires, naturally). while i'm definitely more of a stud-girl, i have worn many a chandelier/statement earring in my ...

i hope you had a wonderful 4th! we were not only blessed by great weather (hello summer, FINALLY!), but also by the presence of my parents as they came over for their first meal at our house (it only took us a year to host them, whoopsies). we dined al fresco, noshed on a feast ...

admittedly this look is definitely on the edgier side for yours truly, but i think i love it! i recently started following clothing designer (and eyebrow queen) anine bing on instagram, and i swear her casual, cool, slightly masculine style is totally influencing how i dress. now that i'm in my 30's, i feel like ...

pretty little peasant blouse

0 Permalink 8

you may remember this top from last week's post featuring floral blouses under $100. i took my own recommendation and popped into madewell for an in-person try-on and affirmed my original impression -i loved it! i even bought my mom one so we can be twins (and take advantage of the 20% discount). while it ...

styling a bandana for spring

0 Permalink 5

i'm no stranger to bandanas. i took a big liking to them last year and wore them to death all summer long (i styled them here and here). somewhere in the fall/winter i took an unintentional hiatus from wearing them, but with warmer weather headed our way, i feel like the spring is the perfect ...

golden hour

after a two-day heatwave, it was back to sweaters and jeans this weekend. spring, you're a fickle gal, i tell you. in all honesty, i'll take the cooler temps if it at least means clear skies. to encourage the sun to peek its way from behind the clouds, i kept my color palette golden ...

as a connoisseur of the wide-leg silhouette, i'm excited to share today's styling session incorporating one of my five pairs of everlane's iconic wide-leg crop pant. i've teamed up with heather (heathern.co) and marsia (a_lovely_living) to showcase four looks featuring what i like to call the world's most flattering pant. head on over to my ...

denim midi skirt

0 Permalink 10

after searching for months, i think i've found the perfect denim skirt for me. while i originally envisioned something shorter, i've realized i'm much more comfortable with a slightly longer hemline -which is why the midi silhouette is ideal. what i love about this particular style are the asymmetrical buttons and the darting down the ...

it wouldn't be a holiday without a little tulle, right? for our annual christmas eve dinner with my parents, i decided to pull out this oldie but goodie tulle skirt from the back of my closet. i've had it for over half a decade but it never ceases to inspire me in putting together a ...
