    It is no secret to anyone that I am a bag hoarder, and a big one at that. I’ve just always dressed (and shopped) by the philosophy that accessories make the outfit and therefore are our best investments. Think about it: we literally carry our bags like little babies so naturally, there is minimal wear and tear. Therefore investing in quality and style will go a long way in the handbag department.

  • Rips & Stripes

  • March 2, 2015
  • IMG_8256 I’ve always had a very polished aesthetic when it comes to dressing. I love timeless and feminine silhouettes, crisp lines and refined details. But lately, I’ve been opting for casual and edgy touches to shake that mentality up a bit.

    I kept on wearing this pair of black skinnies and telling Zachariah how lack luster they were, I was actually about to sell them. But, after seeing a pair of J.Brand’s that were super similar, but just ripped, I asked him if he could recreate it for me. Nothing to loose, right? Well a box cutter in Zachariah’s hands for five minutes totally breathed new life into these skinny jeans for spring. Let me know if any of you would like a tutorial!

  • Shoe Savior

  • March 1, 2015
  • IMG_8805 I’m a shoe girl, there is absolutely no denying that. I get pumped about pumps, strut in stilettos and fall head over (actual) heels on the daily. There is something about a fantastic heel that just makes your legs look longer, hold your head up a little higher and provides a much needed morale boost.

    Many people say I “would bleed” for fashion in a light-hearted matter, but that phrase in itself is no joke. I’m a heel wearer through and through and I suffer through any pain, sweat (and I hate to admit, even sometimes blood) to complete the perfect look. It’s come to a point where I keep bandaids in my wallet just incase breaking in new pumps means breaking through some skin as well.

    When I first found out about Sole Serum, I thought, “heck, it’s worth a try.” I was breaking in some new leopard mules (that you’ll see on the blog soon) and threw the bottle in my bag “just in case.” Well two hours later I found myself two rounds into the mantra, “beauty is pain,” and remembered the mint bottle I had shoved in my purse earlier.

    Oscar? Like the Grouch right? Um, not quite. I may be a boy at heart but I do my best to keep my fashion icons from including Sesame Street characters (besides maybe that red fella).

  • Army Green Accent

  • February 27, 2015
  • IMG_8194 In the winter, I tend to coexist with spiteful mother nature in neutrals (and lots of them). The same old black, brown, creams and cognacs can be a little yawn-inducing, unless they are layered in a new and exciting way.

    Thats where a pop of a calm color can come in. In this case, the pop is army green. With years of mixing and matching, true matchy-matchy is back in style. Play up on this trend by coordinating a few of your accessories in the same hue.

  • Sporting Stripes + WIWW

  • February 25, 2015
  • IMG_0011 Maybe it’s the warmer weather, maybe my style is slowly transforming, but I will have to admit it – girly girl me is loving a sportier look. I love the back and white color combinations (obviously), the use of leather and stripes. I have yet to succumb to New Balances, but a an overall vibe, I can do.

    I have started a new challenge for myself and that is to use less heat on my hair. All the highlights, blow drying, straightening and curling can really take it’s toll. So until I start my job in June, I’m going to actively try to use mostly no-heat hair styles. This is really difficult for waves-obsessed me and that my hair is a difficult demon pre-style. Inconsistent wave sand kinks and frizz seem to take over. So you will be seeing plenty of slicked back buns and pony tails and braids in the upcoming months.

  • Carmel Coated

  • February 23, 2015
  • IMG_0065 I’ve always been a sort of fashion extremist, in some areas more than others. But my bookend styling tendencies really come out in my choices of denim. Leggings or boyfriend jeans, Ink washes or destroyed light wash, high waist or low riding and super skinnies or extreme flares. In the winter, I always get stuck in a skinny jean rut thanks to the less than ideal (read: unbearably cold) conditions. Naturally cold means boots and boots leave skinny jeans as my default.

  • Topped with Texture

  • February 20, 2015
  • IMG_8558 With the freezing cold in full force, I can’t help but reach for layers, black and over-the-knee style boots almost on repeat. The winter uniform can get a bit redundant, so layering is key to diversify my daily look.

    For today’s outfit, I used black to “sandwich” a bit of denim to keep an unexpected edge. Topping off the look with tweed adds much needed texture into the mix.
