This summer has me craving bohemian clothing and accessories, and thankfully there are some crazy sales going on right now!  I’m preparing for our move to California by stocking up on swimwear and grabbing some cuper cute shoes for work.  I nabbed these Rampage peep-toe booties (which I absolutely LOVE) for $17 and some L*Space swimwear at 50% off, but act fast because there’s no knowing when these sales will be over!  Happy shopping 🙂

XOXO,

Lauren

Summer is quickly approaching, and I am so thrilled that the weather is finally warming up!  Thank goodness, right?!  Bikini season is practically upon us, and frankly I’m a huge fan of mixing and matching styles, brands, etc., and I am so in love with this Mikoh and Tori Praver pairing!  I always stock up on some Pura Vida bracelets and embellished sandals for the summer, and I think I’ve finally found the perfect fringe bag (I’ve been searching for what seems like AGES!).  With warmer weather comes warmer water, so I’m stoked to finally get some surfing in.  Summer, get here faster!

XOXO,

Prepping for our trip to San Diego has given me summer fever, and I just can’t wait to escape the frosty Raleigh weather!  This week’s #WIWW is absolutely California-inspired, with everything from 70s sandals to high waisted shorts and a little exotic bling.  To me, nothing says California more than a brightly colored crop top, and this intricately decorated tote would be perfect for traveling or even just for a day at the beach.  As much as I want to shop for new things pre-trip, I’m stoked to save some money and pick up a few things while I’m out there.  Nothing beats some California shopping, right?!

XOXO,

Gift Guide: For Her

It is officially that time of year, where the gift guide rules!  This week, I decided to focus on gifts for ‘her’ – an admittedly easy place to start.  There are so many great gifts for ladies out on the market right now, from the new Starbucks artist cup series to cheeky pillows and, of course, jewelry.  I have searched high and low for some fabulous and funky gifts that almost any lady would be sure to love!  An extra plus for you Raleigh readers: I know that a lot of these gifts can be found locally, particularly the Starbucks mugs and gifts from Furbish Studio (did you know they’re based out of Raleigh?!).

Happy shopping, my friends!

XOXO,

1. Plaid – I am obsessed with plaid this season, and I have been searching for the perfect flannel!  This Zara flannel would be a great addition to your closet this fall.

2. Leopard Pumps – With cold weather comes the need for closed-toe shoes, and leopard is a fabulous semi-neutral.  I practically live in my leopard flats, but have yet to snag a pair of great leopard pumps.  I love that the silhouette of these Ivanka Trump pumps resembles that of a court shoe.

3. Distressed Black Skinnies – I have yet to purchase a pair of distressed jeans, mostly because the fading can be so hit or miss, but I love these distressed black skinnies.  They add a little extra texture to an outfit without appearing over-distressed.

4. Bling – Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and ear cuffs are a punk-y option to spruce up an outfit this season.  As you cover yourself in more material this fall, why not cover yourself with more bling?

5. Cobalt Handbag – I love a great statement bag, and Rebecca Minkoff’s ladylike totes have stolen my heart.  The bright color is well balanced with its simple design, which makes it great for mixing with lots of patterns!

XOXO,

The temperature is dropping and the leaves are falling, which means one thing: accessory season has begun!  Cold weather may mean bundling up in layers, but fall and winter are possibly the best seasons to really let your accessories take center stage.  I mean, the layers-on, layers-off dilemma can truly challenge a wardrobe, but the right accessories can help your outfit feel complete in all conditions.  I really love this dress from H&M as a base piece because it adds a lot of visual interest – plus it can serve as the platform for your entire outfit!  Fun accessories are great, and this Betsey Johnson beanie is definitely not short on fun.  Neutral colored accessories don’t have to be boring, and these chained boots and See by Chloe bag are super interesting and versatile.  Jewelry is another great way to top off a layered look, and a whimsical piece or two can absolutely make your outfit!

XOXO,

My journey through graduate school thus far has caused me to focus a bit more on decorating my home.  I mean, a beautiful dress is great, but wearing that dress in a well-decorated home is quite satisfying.  I get tired of the mundane things in my daily and academic life, so I’ve decided to spruce things up!  Nothing could make an early morning class better than a super cute coffee cup and, call me a geek, but seeing a bow paper clip in the early morning would absolutely make my day.  It’s always great to make a stylish appearance in class, and this Kate Spade iPad keyboard and party cuff are perfect!  One of the best parts of a long day in school is coming home, and I definitely think I’ll have to pick up these MR. and MRS. highball glasses and Kate Spade candle.  Here’s to living a stylish life!

XOXO,

Grey has always been one of my favorite colors, and this coat and skirt from H&M make me fall in love all over again with the shade. Plus I think the fringe on the skirt is just so fun – like Kate Moss meets a 20s flapper!  I love simple, elegant jewelry, and these two pieces from Bauble Bar are quite great; the whimsical details really make them.  I’ve been craving a pair of blue heels ever since I saw SJP wear a pair in SATC The Movie, and I love that these are simple enough to wear in your daily life.  Finally, I’ve been a (wee) bit obsessed with finding a great card case, and it’s kind of difficult to find one in a bright, fabulous color.  This Tory Burch case would be absolutely perfect!

XOXO,

This week’s #WIWW is inspired by the elusively elegant Chanel.  Now, Chanel isn’t exactly in my price range, but I was able to track down some particularly elegant and fabulous goodies this week!  Coco Chanel is famous for layering costume jewelry, and these two pieces from J. Crew and Sylvia Benson are the perfect balance of layering.  They’re hassle-free and quite gorgeous.  This H&M quilted faux leather skirt and these Zara tweed sneakers automatically make me think of Chanel’s signature 2.55 handbag and their famous tweed suits, and I can’t help but want to wear them together!  I spotted this striped v-neck sweater, a la Blair Eadie of course, at H&M – talk about a great way to snag the “it” sweater of the season!  I couldn’t escape the fall/winter fringe, and absolutely had to include this wine colored fringe bag – complete with chain strap.  Oh, Coco, your heart be still!

XOXO,

What I Want Wednesday 10.1.14

Everyone needs some great basic pieces in their closet, and this week I found a bunch of absolutely fabulous pieces!  This H&M wool hat looks like it taken straight out of Blair Eadie’s post on Saturday, and it’s taken everything within me to not buy this right now (I’m trying so hard to be good!).  I get so tired of bland winter outfits, so I’ve been actively searching for some great colorful, yet still wintery, pieces to make this season truly bright.  This Milly red tote and H&M sweater are perfect pieces for this season – I actually already bought this sweater in mustard!  I love a good piece of sparkly jewelry, and Kendra Scott has outdone herself with this double druzy ring.  I’ve also fallen for Nadri’s arrow cuff, which is a perfect balance of minimalism and glitz.  Perhaps my biggest obsession as of late is finding the perfect pair of peep-toe booties, and I think my search has finally ended with these Steve Madden beauties.

XOXO,
