A little higher than normal

There’s something about the style of a high-waisted jean that I can’t get enough of [Insert heart eye emoji]. I would go as far to say that they are some of the most flattering pants I have ever worn. Fun fact: I have a booty. With that said, a lot of jeans make me feel like I’d just rather not wear pants at all. It’s so hard for me to find the right fit when it comes…

For the Love of Jumpsuits

    There’s a reason why I can’t get enough of this Forever21 jumpsuit.  For me, it’s an easy one-and-done decision. With an easy going one-piece at the heart of my ensemble, all I need to do is add on some thoughtful accessories and I’m out the door. Sure, there’s a few road blocks here and there — bathroom breaks become a tad more involved. But, it’s worth it just to get those 10 extra minutes with my pillow in the morning.…

#BrunchandSlay: NARS Edition

Imagine the perfect outfit. Now imagine yourself wearing that perfect piece with the most impeccable contour, highlight and bold eyebrows, slicked back hair and crisp black stilettos. Clean, simple and sophisticated. That’s exactly how I imagine myself  when I’m getting ready for a special occasion. But let’s face it, I know nothing about makeup. But I will wear mascara and eyeliner all day everyday. So when the opportunity to attend the first ever Brunch and Slay event at NARS came about…

Nostalgic Vibes & Luca Love

Bell-bottoms have experienced a resurgence in popularity lately — and I’m absolutely loving it. I first remember rocking flared jeans back in middle school. Now years later, they’re back in my closet. I paired my light wash jeans with a vintage inspired peasant top for a totally retro look. But even more important than my bell-bottoms and peasant top are these bracelets for a cause, Luca-Love. (Thank you @Redrhinestone for letting me borrow them – ordering my own now!)…

Fall Transitions

One of the easiest trends to rock year round is the utility vest. I knew how badly I wanted this vest but wasn’t exactly sure how or when to wear it, so I held off on buying it. Now that I’ve figured out how easily this vest transitions into seasons and pairs so well with just about anything I’m super excited that I gave into such an awesome trend. The great thing about the utility vest is…

Reading List

  I love a good book and with fall around the corner I’m ready to cozy up with my favorite sweaters and a few good books. I haven’t had the time to sit down and actually read anything as of lately but I really want to get back in the swing of it. Growing up, my mom would take my sister and I to the library almost every week during the summer. Reading was my ultimate…

My First Ever Blogger Event!

Wow! So, Wednesday night I had the chance to attend my first ever blogger event with my two favorite blogger beauties @Redrhinestone and @SarahJaneReign (pssst… go follow them if you aren’t already). Yay! for my first blogger event! We attended the first annual Market Street Woodlands Blogger Crawl. Initially we didn’t think the event was even going to happen, because when I say it poured, it poured. No joke we hesitated even getting out of the…

Black & White Essence

I chose black and white for this outfit… but what’s new? What I love most about this outfit is the opportunity to add a little pop of color without taking away from the essence of this simplistic look. These black short from Macy’s are my favorite summer staple as of right now. I love that I can just throw them on and go, plus the fit and length make these shorts super versatile and timeless.…

Beautiful Hues

   How fun is this outfit?! I absolutely adore this lace popover dress and these (very, i mean VERY) bright shoes! But let’s be honest, I’ve had these shoes and this dress sitting in my closet for a while. Now that I’ve finally decided to dust them off and put them on I’m kicking myself. Why the heck did I wait so long to wear these beauties?! I have a really bad habit of buying things and letting it sit…
