Madewell Spring 2016

01.23.16

Loving the 70’s influence I am seeing in the Spring 2016 Madewell line (preorder only)! I always love a good jumpsuit and high-waisted fits– my current fave madewell denim. Can spring get here already?! I would like to pair my jeans up with some tees, please.

Get That Winter Style

01.11.15

I am all about comfort, especially in the winter, and I tend to wear a lot of black, so I am loving these simple & chic outfits for winter. I practically am living in these pants, they are highwaisted to smooth out the winter belly : ) and hey have little side and back pockets. They are SOOOO comfortable and you can dress them up or lounge around in them. I think I might have to grab another pair of them, because I can’t wash them fast enough!

Fall Essentials

10.09.14

new_englandFALL

Here in Connecticut it is the perfect fall day. I couldn’t help myself from taking a little walk around town this morning after I grabbed my coffee. I am a huge fan of fall and I feel like I really have to soak it all in before the winter sneaks in. I also felt like I needed a new part of booties since last year I held out on buying any new boots. I snagged these navy suede booties from piper lime. I figured I had the black and brown boots covered and wanted something a little different but still something I could wear everyday if I wanted.

Fall wardrobe essentials

Alright, jumping back into some design projects and listening to the latest from Lively show that I just received in my inbox. So excited for this one because I have been admiring the Un-Fancy and trying to implement the minimalist fashion philosophy into my life.

Are you a fan of the Lively show and/or the Un-Fancy? check them out if you haven’t already!
