Crushing on…

3 May

Good morning! Happy Friday!  What are your plans for the weekend?  I am super excited because Jonathan and I are headed to Spokane for the weekend!  The annual Bloomsday race is on Sunday in Spokane so we plan to run it.  As most of you know, I am not a runner but my sister and I plan to run as much as we can and then just have fun walking the rest.  I am also really excited to see all our friends one more time before our big move!

Here is what I have been crushing on lately.  I LOVE this striped pencil skirt from J. Crew!  It’s just so beautiful and you could wear it with so many different things!

J. Crew Looks We Love

4 Apr

Hello!  How is your week going so far?  I am trying to get back into the swing of things at school.  It is so crazy that this is my last quarter!  Time is just flying by!  Today I have another J. Crew Looks We Love post for you.  As you have probably noticed, I am obsessed with this column on their website.  I just think it is a great way to pair outfits and get fashion inspiration.  Check out the rest of their outfits here!

I like this outfit because it would be pretty easy to recreate with stuff from my own closet.  I love the fun coral colors for spring, and those sandals are fabulous!

Hi friends!  Remember that post I did awhile back about fashion on a budget?  Well, today I have another example from a cute outfit highlighted on J. Crew’s Looks We Love that you can create from items in your own closet.

I just love this outfit, and I actually decided to wear it to school today!  I used my red cords and a polk-a-dot button up with a pearl necklace and my smoker flats.

What are some of your fashion tricks?

Fashion Secret No. 1

12 Dec

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday!  Well, it is the middle of the week, and there are only two weeks left until Christmas.  Can you believe it?!  I am spending my days designing, packaging, crafting and wrapping presents in hopes that I can get everything done in time!  But, I have to say, I really don’t mind the Christmas season whirlwind this year.  Every year I do the usual Christmas preparation, but this year it feels different.  I think I am learning to enjoy all the in-between moments leading up to Christmas just as much as the actual event.  Is this a part of growing up?  If so, I will take it!  How has your Christmas season been treating you?

Today I wanted to share with you one of my little fashion secrets for living on a budget.  If I am being honest, sometimes my own wardrobe can start looking pretty shabby compared to all the cute clothes I am buying as Christmas presents for other people. So, today I have a great solution to the “holiday wardrobe blues”.  When I am feeling frustrated with my wardrobe, and get the “I don’t have ANYTHING to wear” feeling, I just log onto J. Crew.  J.Crew.com has an amazing section called Looks We Love where they style different pieces of their clothing into really cute, unique outfits.  Now, this is the fun part – I like to find similar pieces of clothing from my own closet and style them into outfits I would have never thought of before.  This way you can get new outfits without even spending a dime!  I promise, it works!  And, there are many other clothing sites that have similar sections such as Madewell.  The above photo is an example of my one my favorite outfits J. Crew styled for the holidays and the below photo is a fun Christmas party outfit from Madewell!

Happy election day friends!  Can you believe it is finally here?  I have to say, I am relieved.  There is so much division durning an election year and I am ready to move past some of it.  And get on to the holiday season!

Today I have posted a few things I am crushing on this week.  I have my eye on these fabulous navy flats from Zara.  They would be perfect for a holiday party!  Also, I still don’t have an iphone case yet because love how the phone looks all by itself.  But, if I were to get one, I think I would get this simple one from J. Crew.

Here are a few things I have my eye on!  When the weather turns cold one of the first things I feel like I need to stock up on is cute tights.  And I definitely like all the prints this year.  Also, one of my must have fall accessories is long mittens.  That way I can still wear a three quarter length sweater and stay warm when I am outside.  What do you think of these ombrè ones from Anthropologie?
