    Cityscape Graphic Tee

    My weekend style lately has been all about being comfy but put together enough for going out to run errands or hang out at a friend’s. Last weekend I wore this dark blue long sleeve tee with a cityscape graphic on the front with black leggings and my new grey knit sneakers. Top: Gap | Leggings: Express | Sneakers: Nike This tee is so cute and comfy. The cityscape print is darling and the white looks so good against the blue. I also love the little pop of yellow in the star. It’s not the warmest, but it’s a good all-year round piece since it is lightweight. In the summer…

    How To Get A Designer Look For Less

    Image via Unsplash   When it comes to your look, you want to combine comfort and practicality with expressing your personal style. Clothes are a way to express ourselves to the world and shape how it sees us. Many of us covet the latest designer fashions, but affording them is a different matter. You may follow the catwalk reports and flip wistfully through the pages of Vogue for inspiration, but can you actually afford any of those items for your own wardrobe? Even if you could, there are other priorities in life and other bills to pay. Not many of us would feel comfortable buying a top that cost the…

    Blue & White Striped Ruffle Trim

    I’m really big on finding little (or big) details in pieces that I love whether it’s a tiny glittery stripe, button detail, or a tiered ruffle. That’s why I love this navy blue top. It has the prettiest blue and white striped ruffle trim at the neck and at the wrists. The blue is a lighter, more vibrant blue than the navy the shirt is made of so it’s a nice, bright contrast. Top: J.Crew | Pants: Uniqlo | Shoes: Francesca’s | Ring: Express I decided to go with a blue look for this outfit with my blue statement ring and blue twist velvet slip-ons. This top has the feel…

    Japanese Jelly Candies

    Happy Friday! It has been a week. So this weekend, and it’s a long weekend, is so needed. I was scrolling through the photos on my phone the other day and saw this photo I took back in September of a box of jelly candies my parents bought in Japan and thought it would make for a nice, colorful flashback Friday. Back in August I went on a family vacation to Japan and Hong Kong and before heading to Hong Kong from Japan we were at the airport trying to use up some of our Japanese yen. The duty free shops were great for some last minute gifts for others and…

    NARS Cheek Palette

    I have to preface this post by saying that sadly I don’t think this cheek palette is available anymore. I got it during the holidays but didn’t have a chance to share it before now. BUT, all the shades in it are staple NARS shades so you can easily buy them individually or in other cheek palettes in the future I’m sure since they are cult favorites. I mostly got this one just because I didn’t own these cult favorites on their own and the packaging was so cool! So I named this blog post “NARS Cheek Palette” because it’s really called NARS Orgasm Infatuation and I didn’t want that…

    What Does Your Jewelry Say About You?

    Image Credit: Unsplash In the world of jewelry, every choice you make says something about your personal style. How you mix and match, and what you wear your jewelry with, gives away a little more than you might think about your taste and even your personality. Indeed, even the choice to not wear jewelry can make a statement! There is nothing like jewelry for transforming an outfit from average to awesome but here are a few of the signals you may not realise you are giving off. Fun and Quirky Matching bright colors, statement pieces and novelty jewelry is a brilliant way to show off your fun side. Fashion doesn’t…

    Apple Pie + Cutouts & Braided Lattice

    Happy Thursday! I hope your week’s been going well. I’ve been really busy, but I’m glad it’s already Thursday. I have a quick post for you today. Continuing with my pie theme from my last food post (see my Coconut Cream Pie post), I’m sharing an apple pie today. I’ve shared an apple pie covered in leaf cutouts on here before and one with a lattice top which is why this post will be short and sweet since I’m not going to cover the whole process of making an apple pie. Just click (here) for one of my previous posts on apple pie. The apple pie I’m sharing today has…

    Grey Duster

    Dusters are like the ultimate comfy cardigan that look really cool at the same time. This dark grey duster has pockets and is on the more fitted side. I paired it with an off-white tank top with subtle sparkly pinstripes, black leggings, and Uggs. Duster: Jane | Tank Top: Loft | Leggings: J.Crew | Boots: Ugg | Bracelet: Full Line Collection Since this duster is more fitted it created a sleek look with the tank top and leggings. Typically, I don’t like tops or sweaters that are so fitted on the arms because they make me feel claustrophobic, but I didn’t mind it with this duster. And best part is, of…

    Body & Mind – 3 Month Update

    Quick update for you all on my Body & Mind program in the Sweat App! I’ve been pretty good about staying on top of the workouts each week. Sometimes I do my workout before dinner and sometimes I do it later in the evening, closer to bed time. With the Body & Mind program being yoga based, it’s easier to do whenever and it’s not like I’m doing a hardcore workout right before bed. I took a break Christmas week because things were just crazy with the holidays plus I went to DC for a few days. Although I did walk a ton when I was in DC so I…
