Gotta love a cropped oversized tee. Especially when its splashed with French vocab -- it makes you instantly chic. Another favorite color combo here: pretty soft pinks accented with bold graphic black. A definite escape from all that neon I've been drawn to lately.

monday brights

I bought all three of these bright touches simultaneously. Something tells me I'll be wearing a lot of color throughout the next few months -- I can't seem to escape it.

These rainy days need some sunshine and neon shorts, turquoise beads and equally bright accessories will certainty do the trick. And this exact color of orange is my new favorite.

v-day in may

The YSL LOVE flat is keeping me up at night. Totally better than heart-shaped boxes of chocolate...anyone up for a late valentine?

square stars

These past few days have been spent way up north where wearing the same leggings/top/jacket/scarf combo is acceptable -- that is an exaggeration...for the most part. I took my new Swedish Hasbeens for H&M out for a spin last week and they gave me some major blisters -- ahh spring has officially sprung. Expect more pictures with these beauties soon!

inchworm green

Inchworm green has always been my favorite crayon color for some reason or another. Since I was a kid, I would take the best care keeping that particular crayon sharp and pointy. This green now has seemed to inch (pardon the pun) its way into my closet, quickly becoming a fast favorite spring color. It just goes so well with floral dresses and fragrant lilac blossoms. And apparently leopard as well.

the best day

My mom is simply the best -- this vintage picture of her and I is one of my favorites. I wanted to dedicate a special post for her along with a small thank you for everything she has done. I love her for all of the advice, encouragement and love she has given me over all of these years. And for much more. 

I love you Mama, Happy Mother's Day



Last day of finals today (!!!!!!!) so I decided to reward all my hard work with a little prize. Still a little unsure about the color, but I am obsessed with the oversized, slouchy shape -- surprising right? I can't wait for tomorrow so I can take this baby out for a spin.

lace, leopard, banana

Everyone should have this skirt*, these shoes**, and this bracelet*** in their closet...in my humble opinion. A little bit of girly, a little chic, a little cheeky -- the perfect way to spice up your old favorites.

*Ann Taylor skirt --> if you must have it (and you must trust me!!) go to a local store rather than buying it online, its a lot cheaper. Mine is in a petite so the hemline is a bit more youthful!

**Jeffery Campbell flats --> a fast  favorite -- insanely comfortable and a bunch of colors to choose from!
buy a half size bigger :) I might be buying another pair asap...

***BCBG bracelet -- reads "banana" and there are a bunch of different slang words available for your wrist. Too cute!
