With a new city comes a new selection of shops to go absolutely crazy in, and I will admit that I’m a bit of a shopaholic. I go through cyclical phases where I will abstain from most shopping, but I’ll indulge in a necklace here or a pair of earrings there – you know, the small things that you can make completely untraceable if you buy them with cash. And then it happens… my shopaholic side rears its head and decides that it’s time to hit the pavement. The drought is finally over and I decide that somehow, magically, I am in dire need of nearly everything I’ve pinned on Pinterest (and yes, I still hoard dream outfits on my Pinterest page). I will not disclose what I have purchased thus far, but after the drought it feels like a full on rain storm… with an accompanying mudslide… and maybe a hurricane… but a very STYLISH hurricane.
So here’s to the style hurricane that has stuck my closet – one of the loves of my life. Cheers.

After a few weeks of hot Raleigh weather, we finally got some relief this week after a few rain showers. Believe it or not, a long-sleeve top was definitely in demand this week despite it being June, which I take as a prequel to California weather! I can’t believe that we will be moving to Southern California next month, but I am incredibly excited for all that awaits us there. To me, these peep-toe booties scream SoCal, and I made sure I snagged them ASAP since there were on super sale!

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 🙂

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!

This girl just turned 24, and I have to say that I finally feel like I am beginning to come into my own! I know everyone always says that college is the time when you find yourself, but I honestly think that you refine who you are in the years after college. I am truly thankful for all the people in my life that have helped make me who I am, and I have to say that I think sometimes those people that were in your life for a limited time can have a seriously lasting impact (in a good way!).
Here I’ve gathered a few of my favorite “words of wisdom” for you all, in honor of this week! (click through for sources)

Guess what – I’m baaaaaack! The past month or so has been particularly difficult for my family, and unfortunately I needed to take some time off to cope with the loss of two family members. Nevertheless, I am officially back and stoked for all the spring and summer fashion that has already been hitting the shelves! I’m keeping this post short and sweet, but be on the lookout for more posts going live soon!!!

I can finally say it: I am done with my first semester of graduate school! I know I’ve been MIA for the last week or so, but I have to say that finals week was brutal. Now that I’ve survived finals, I can enjoy this beautiful holiday season! I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe Christmas is just two weeks away, and I am so thankful that I’ve finished my Christmas shopping already.
I’ve always loved chambray, and recently I have experimented with the whole denim-on-denim look. One thing I’ve learned is that it’s good to visually break up the denim pieces so you don’t have a Britney Spears/Justin Timberlake effect – I KNOW you know what I’m referring to 😉 I decided to layer a cute vest over my chambray button-down and top it all off with my favorite felt hat to add a little more color. Super comfy and cute, right?

I don’t know about you, but I think that shopping for a guy can be one of the most challenging things during the holidays. I never want to fall into the whole buying him clothes rut, but I know that my husband won’t necessarily buy something that he needs – ok, maybe he doesn’t think he needs it, but I do! I’ve gathered some great options here for the guy in your life- whether it’s your friend, boyfriend, dad, husband or brother. If you find some great guy gift suggestions, feel free to comment below! I would love to hear them!

I avoided button-down shirts like the plague in high school and college – to me they represented stuffiness and endless hours of being uncomfortable (and the inevitable peep-show that would ensue since I’m a bustier lady). Thankfully, I decided to give my old rival another chance, and I have fallen in love with them! Honestly, button-down shirts are so versatile and classic, and the whole fit issue can be fixed by simply trying on enough brands to figure out what works best for you. There are definitely more options today than there were a few years ago, too – everything from cotton to chiffon, which makes button-downs even more versatile! I love that you can channel a variety of different characters through clothing, and this staple can take you from Audrey Hepburn to Risky Business to Angelina Jolie in a heartbeat.
