It’s been a LONG time since I posted a real live outfit post, but I’m lucky enough to work with a very talented photographer and friend, Sarah, and she kindly offered to help me shoot this look — so here we go! If you run into me on a weekday in the summer, changes are HIGH that I will be wearing something along the lines of this look. Breezy summer dress: Check. Comfortable, walking-friendly shoes: Check. Hair pulled up because it’s just too damn hot: Check. This was one of the good days too — I actually remembered to shower, put on a lip stain, and put on my watch for once. [Pats self on the back.]
Between the freezing, wear-all-the-layers weather and the accidental blog hiatus (part lack-of-sunshine induced, part way-too-busy induced), I’ve actually had a relatively purchase-free winter. And that’s totally not a bad thing — my bank account needed a little rest after all of the holiday shopping I did for friends and family.
BUT now that spring is on its way (though you’d never know it from the weather forecast these next few days), I’m starting to itch for some fresh finds. I’m getting seriously anxious for layered knits, and silky blouses, and comfy slip-on kicks. Now if Mother Nature could just hurry it up already…
To get you even more in the mood for a little spring shopping, I wanted to share my favorites from the AMAZING sale Shopbop is having right now. Shopbop sales are few and far between, so when they do roll around, I make absolutely sure to take advantage (hello, all of the neutrals).
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this year’s New Years Eve isn’t about some fancy, glittery, too-tight, too-short dress. This year’s New Years Eve is about a dash of sparkle and plenty of comfort. And a cozy sweater, booties, and a GREAT statement coat (aka this one) are sounding pretty good right about now.
Another day, another lineup of gorgeous, gift-able Global Goods Partners pieces. For this second look featuring the hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces from Global Goods Partners, I wanted to let keep everything nice and simple. What better than black on black to showcase a perfectly wacky neon satchel purse and delicate, hammered brass earrings?
Everyone has giving back on their minds this time of year, but, let’s be real, sometimes those socially conscious gifts tend to fall by the wayside in favor of a good sale price. BUT when the gift-able options are as lovely and well-crafted and affordable as the ones I’m sharing in today’s post, then it truly is a no-brainer.
I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something I kind of love about getting to wear a really pretty bra under an oversized sweater. No one knows, but you get to feel extra girly all day while you go about your over-bundled business of running errands and last-minute holiday gift buying. My new favorite for this ultimate pair-up? ThirdLove.
I’m a December baby. And as such when my birthday rolls around each year I take a few seconds to get onto my soap box and complain about how my b-day gets lost in the shuffle around the holidays. So here’s me on my soapbox — and here’s a few things I think would make me feel oh so much better about the whole December birthday thing. Ok ok, so not really —
I’ve been scouting out the PERFECT pair of over-the-knee boots since last year now, and I’m so glad I finally pulled the trigger! I was back and forth about color preference, about material preference, about heel height, pretty much everything — and when you’re looking to invest in a legit pair of boots, the price tag can be daunting.
