Navy Blue + White





Version 3

I know that I’m not alone when I say I love blue & white paired together, especially navy blue. It’s such a crisp, yet classic summer outfit.  This blouse is so pretty, and even better in person. The peplum is a go-to favorite of mine, and the neckline is really flattering for any body type. I was a year round swimmer for many years growing up (fun fact, I know), so my shoulders are broader than most; therefore, I’m always on the lookout for tops that accentuate my “swimmer” shoulders. This one is another cute option as well.
And, these mules are so mom-friendly, yet still really, really fun! I’m pretty sure I bought these just because of the poms poms! They look great with white jeans and shorts, too. Sadly, mine are sold out, but these are just as chic. I actually had a hard time deciding between the two!

Loft Cropped Pants (sadly sold out, similar style) /  English Factory Emma Blouse / Kate Spade handbag (old, but similar style)/ J. Crew mules (sadly sold out! I hope they restock them soon. These are a really fun print, too!) / Kate Spade Watch / Kate Spade Heart of Gold bracelet / Loft Pearl Earrings / Loft Sunglasses (old, but similar style)

Have a happy day!

Happy February + Rose Quartz

Happy February, Everyone! It seems a little bit crazy that January is already gone, but that’s life in the fast lane, so welcome February!


Since one of the colors of the year is Rose Quartz and this is the month where anything pink is appropriate (always appropriate in my book!) I thought I would round up some things that I’m loving lately in this pretty shade of pink!

Happy Shopping!

Secretary Blouse
jcrew factory - rose
I just love this feminine top. I was sold on not only the color, but also anything with a bow gets my vote. It comes in other colors as well, but this one is my favorite.

Ruffle Collar Camisole
ruffle cami - rose
You can never have too many layering pieces. And, I can never turn down a great ruffle top. Ruffles always look tailored, and instantly make your look more refined. Those are a few good things in my book. This one would be great alone for a date night, or worn with a blazer/cardigan for day. Pretty & perfect.

Light Pink Coco Earrings
These earrings will go with anything and everything you wear. I’m convinced we all need a pair. Aren’t you?

Ryan Sunglasses

Oh, J.Crew, how I love you…this pair will definitely be found in my handbag right in time for Spring. Don’t you think?

Elsie Table Lamp

I would love this lamp on my desk. It’s simple design is classic
and modern all in one.

Lily Avenue Carrigan
lilly - kate spade
The scallop trim on this Lily bag is gorgeous. I wouldn’t mind adding this one to my collection. Kate really knows her stuff well, or at least me.

Have a wonderful Monday, Friends!

Fall Wish List

I’m pretty sure I get more excited about my Fall “wish list” than I do my Spring one. As I’ve said many times before, Fall is my season; therefore, my Fall wish list tends to be a little long.

Oh yeah, and I may or may not have listened to a little bit of Christmas music last night…I just love this time of year!

Below are a few of my favorites from my wish list. What are you wishing to add to your closet this Fall?

 Cedar Street Medium Harmony Tote

This mystic blue color is really chic. I would have it monogrammed, and it would go with almost everything in my closet. I’m pretty sure of it, in fact.

2016 Kate Spade Planner

I have Kate Spade’s 2015 planner, and I adore the design/layout. It’s easy to find everything I need, and keeps me organized. I’m naturally a planner, and if I don’t write it down, it won’t get done. This is a must-have on my Christmas list. I was sold on the stripes/polka dots combo. Two of my favorites!

Factory Striped Funnelneck Sweatshirt

This would look great with jeans, especially my white ones. I could also see wearing this over workout gear while running errands, too.

Factory Rolled Turtleneck Sweater
I bought this sweater last year in navy blue, and I cannot tell you how much I have worn it. It’s such a great sweater alone or layered. I would love to add more colors to my collection.

Factory Vail Parka

I know, another coat. I love this peach color, and a faux fur trim? Yes, please!

Have a great Tuesday, Friends!

Loving Lately – A Few Fun Things

Happy Saturday, Friends!

It’s been a whirlwind of a week here, hence the lack of blog posts, and please know that I’ve missed it terribly. My computer was acting up, and now that we’ve got that working again, I’m back! So, I thought I’d pop in and say “hello!” as well as share some things that I’m loving lately.

Joules Field Welly Rain Boots
joules rain boots pink
As you know, I’ve been searching for a good pair of rain boots, and I found these on Amazon. I absolutely LOVE them. They are so cute and comfortable. I really like the pink, because it adds a little bit of happiness to an otherwise gloomy, rainy day. The best part is that they’re on amazon prime, and we were able to use our cash back bonus to pay for them! Gotta love it when that happens! Guilt-free shopping  – sold!

all in good taste

Who doesn’t love a good coffee table book? Especially one from Kate Spade? My sweet husband surprised me with pre-ordering this one for me. I cannot wait to flip through it while sipping a good cup of coffee (during my little one’s nap, of course!).

Threshold Brown Faux Fur Throw

This is an incredibly soft & chic throw I recently added to our family room. My little one loves it just as much as I do. It’s machine washable, thank goodness. And, right now, it’s 15% off!

And, this is always a good reminder…

Enjoy today, it’s a gift!

Neutral Territory













Happy August, Everyone! I can’t believe this Summer is closing in on us. Although, I can’t say that I’m going to miss the heat wave we’ve been having, not one bit.

There’s nothing I love more than neutrals. In my opinion, you can never have too many in your closet. A lot of what I wore when I was working were neutrals. I still love them today. They’re polished, and go with everything, literally. What’s even better? Pairing neutrals together. To me, it’s incredibly chic, especially in the hot, Summer months. Linen pants are so much cooler in the Summer months, and these wide leg pants are always a flattering fit with a feminine top. This camisole’s cutout/embroidery detail is so pretty, and adds the perfect pop of contrast for this light and airy look. I also plan to make this camisole work overtime in the Fall/Winter months with cardigans and blazers, too. I typically accessorize with color; however, I thought this cashew tote was the right addition to my outfit. The best part about a neutral outfit, is that you can have a lot more fun with your jewelry. These black and white pom pom earrings didn’t have any competition when it comes to getting noticed, and that’s just want I wanted to happen.

Happy Monday, Friends!
