FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE: PART 5

15 November 2018

Today marks the final installment of my fall capsule wardrobe series on the blog! It’s been so fun showing you guys how I’ve been able to style the same pieces and create multiple outfits with them, and it’s been a fun challenge for me also! When I shop I normally find a piece that I like and don’t really think about how I will wear it or what other pieces I can pair it back to. I’ve always followed the belief in buying things that speak to you and you’ll figure out the rest…


FLORAL SILK PANTS + A SHIMMERY SWEATER

08 November 2018

With the holidays being just around the corner, I’m getting so excited about the thought of dressing up a little bit more than I normally would. I currently don’t have any parties to attend, but I love the feeling that the holidays evoke and having an excuse to wear more sparkle and elevate my outfits with a fun pair of heels. When I saw this blush sweater from the Atlantic-Pacific collection at Nordstrom (under $60!), I thought it would be the perfect piece to add a touch…


A COZY STRIPED SWEATER AND A FUNNY CHRISTMAS MEMORY

06 November 2018

Now that Halloween is over, I can finally start decorating for Christmas! Yes, I know that we haven’t indulged in a delicious turkey dinner just yet (don’t forget the green bean casserole!), but for some reason this year I’m ready to ring in the holiday season a little bit earlier than usual. I think it could have something to do with the fact that we didn't really decorate our tree last year…allow me to explain…


PINK BLAZER FROM THE ATLANTIC-PACIFIC COLLECTION

02 November 2018

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, then it’s no secret that my favorite color is pink! I wear it year-round and consider blush a neutral shade that goes with everything. So naturally when I found out that one of my favorite bloggers was launching a collection with Nordstrom and there was lots of pink involved, I couldn’t resist getting a few pieces! I think it’s pretty obvious which item caught my eye first…


DESIGNER PIECES TO INVEST IN

31 October 2018

Over the past few years, my love and appreciation for designer pieces has grown more and more. I love watching Fashion Week shows to see new collections come to life and see how those trends translate into various clothing brands throughout the next season. Despite how my love for designer has grown, I wish I could say that my budget has too! If you're anything like me, it's easy to find pieces that you want to immediately add into your wardrobe, but maybe…


LAVENDER BRUNETTE SWEATSHIRT

29 October 2018

One of my favorite colors that I’ve been seeing more and more of this season is lavender! It’s such an unexpected hue for fall, and a breath of fresh air from the usual dark tones of green, burgundy and taupe. I’ve seen this color paired back to grey, green, navy and even rust! The first lavender piece I picked up this month was this subtle, striped scarf that I’m so excited to layer with and experiment with. The next was this fun, cozy sweatshirt, which was actually a…


FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE: PART 4

26 October 2018

This week I’ve really been leaning into the cooler weather and soaking up every minute of it! It’s been so nice to waking up to cool mornings and driving around with the windows down. I also love not having to turn on the A/C in our apartment; it feels so good to save on our energy bill and keep our sliding glass door open throughout the night to let the crisp air in. Right now I’m all about sweaters—I truly can’t get enough of them! If you read Monday’s post then…


WHY I STILL WEAR BLUSH PINK IN THE FALL

22 October 2018

Whenever I’m asked what my favorite season is, my response is always “fall!”. Which is actually pretty funny now that I’m thinking about it, because fall basically doesn’t exist here in Phoenix. But everything that the fall season brings I absolutely love! Like cooler nights that call for snuggling up in a cozy blanket drinking a cup of hot cocoa, or deep, autumnal colors and layering up in scarves and sweaters, and keeping the windows open at night and waking up to…


FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE: PART 3

17 October 2018

The weather is finally starting to cool down here in Arizona, which is getting me so excited for the holidays! I felt like last year it was so much warmer around this time, but lately we’ve been having a lot of cloudy and rainy days, dipping as low as the 60’s for the high! I don’t know about you but I’ve been scouring Pottery Barn and Magnolia for all the Christmas decor because I’m so ready—bring it on! Okay okay, maybe I’m getting a little bit carried away here…


WHAT INSPIRES ME TO KEEP CHASING MY DREAMS

15 October 2018

There’s something about travel that leaves me feeling re-energized and inspired to continue pursuing my dreams and making the most out every day that we have on this earth. When Freddy and I have the opportunity to take a vacation and travel somewhere, it reminds me of how fun it is to explore a new city, or go back and visit familiar places that we...

It’s time for another installment of my fall capsule wardrobe series! A couple weeks ago I kicked off this new segment with the first post in the series and I’m so excited to be sharing another one with you today! My intent for this series is to show you how you can create versatile outfits for the fall season without breaking the bank. All you need is a few…


FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE: PART 1

01 October 2018

I’m so excited for today’s post and to kick off this series with you guys! It’s been in the works for a couple months now and I’ve been bursting at the seams waiting to share it with you! For the first time EVER I have created a capsule wardrobe to get you through the fall season in style. If you’re not sure what a capsule wardrobe is, it’s essentially a few key items that you can mix and match together to create multiple outfits! I don’t know about you, but I’m all about…


NATURAL BEAUTY: THE NEW FOUNDATION I'VE BEEN WEARING AND LOVING

07 September 2018

Way back in January I did a discussion post on natural beauty products and my desire to start changing the way I buy makeup. I was on the hunt for skincare and makeup products that were free of parabens, fillers or any other synthetic materials. After I wrote that post I went to a local natural beauty store and got matched with RMS and Jane Iredale...
