Make a Statement

Jacket: Veda / Top: Daydreamer / Jeans: Gap / Boots: Topshop / Sunglasses: Diff via FabFitFun
I love that this jacket dresses up a simple tank top and jeans, and makes it a standout, effortlessly cool outfit. When paired with magenta snakeprint boots, it adds a flair of rebelliousness without feeling like I’m trying too hard. Classic jackets are what I’ve been focused on adding to my closet this last year, but I’d be lying if I said this Veda one didn’t have me questioning whether I need a few good, flashy statement ones too.

Pastel Paradise


Dress: Slate & Willow / Coat: Althea / Boots: Gap / Purse: H&M

The mornings have been exceptionally cold and gloomy these past few days, so to combat that (and my need to match the sky apparently), I forced myself to turn away from all the greys and blacks in my wardrobe and embrace spring colors. I pulled out my favorite pastel pink coat, and threw on my favorite new booties. As another unexpected playful pop, I embraced my inner 90s child and added a string rainbow of hair clips across my head.

The Ultimate Hack

Jumpsuit: The Fifth Label / Camisole: Goldhawk Clothing / Jacket: Old Navy/ Shoes: Alberta / Purse: Luella

Most women I know would have the same complaint as I do when it comes to jumpsuits–stripping bare whenever the needs arises to relieve ones bladder. But, sometimes its simply worth it. This jumpsuit as lovely and chic as it is, was simply too lowcut to wear to work, so I brainstormed for a bit, and decided to see if I could layer a silk and lace camisole underneath it for a bit more coverage. Not only did it add an extra layer and element to an already fun outfit, it also made every trip to the restroom that much more comfortable!

Let’s Talk Rainbows


From simple to vibrant, this trend is one that brings a smile to my face every time. During the winter months I tend to stick to pretty neutral colors, but as soon as the temperatures start to rise, my color palette becomes much more vibrant. I also love a good, kitschy item, so this trend is everything I love rolled into one. Whether it’s a simple necklace like the one above, or an all out rainbow striped dress, there’s a way to incorporate this trend in regardless of your style.
Below are some of the other rainbow items I’m currently loving:

1. These jeweled slides would look perfect with a concert tee and cut offs. 

2. A colorful crocheted swimsuit perfect for frolicking in the sun.

3. The perfect date night dress.

4. This bag that would elevate even the most basic of outfits. 

5. And the perfect tee to go with it. 

High Voltage

Shirt: Ross / Dress: H&M / Shoes: Sam Edelman / Purse: Luella

Now, don’t get me wrong, not all concert tees are created equal, but whether you prefer vintage or just a good design that pays homage to a band that you love, when you find one that speaks to you it’s worth the splurge! They are the ultimate closet staple (possibly right after a good pair of denim), and a very personal one at that. They speak to the kind of music you like, or bands you love, and it’s such a great way to add interest to any outfit! I grew up listening to AC/DC with my dad, so when I saw this on a random trip to Ross I had to buy it. It reminds me of found memories and is a piece that makes me smile every time I spot it in my closet now. 

A Case of the Monday’s 



Though I was terrified of cooking scallops for years, they have turned into one of my favorite dishes to make—not only do they cook quickly, but they feel extra special. They pair just as beautifully with a salad as they do with mashed potatoes, if you’re in the mood to keep things somewhat healthier, or even a cauliflower mash. 

Ingredients: 

  • Fresh Scallops
  • Butter (1 tbsp)
  • Pre-prepared mashed potatoes (feels slightly like cheating, but when you’re crunched for time it’s a real lifesaver)
  • Horseradish
  • Asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon Pepper
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions: 

1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees, and wash and trim off stems of asparagus. Coat in a light layer of olive oil and place on parchment paper covered baking sheet—this allows the asparagus to really crisp up nicely. Roast for 20 mins. Keep an eye if you asparagus is on the thinner side though.

2. Mix 1 tsp of horseradish into the pre-prepared mashed potatoes. 

3. Pat dry scallops and drizzle a tiny amount of olive oil over them. Either toss in just salt and pepper or if you like a good kick to your food, add some Cajun seasoning. Mix it all up until evenly coated.

4. Heat pan over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of butter. When melted place your scallops into pan. Make sure to leave room between and not overcrowd pan. After 2-3 mins flip each scallop to the other side and cook for an additional 2-3 mins. 

5. Plate your food and enjoy.

Let’s Talk Snake Print


Though I’ve always loved the classic look of leopard and other animal prints I was hesitant when it came to snake print at first. It seemed like one of those patterns that could very easily veer from chic to cheap all too easily. However, as the spring approached I was swayed when I stopped into Zara on a random shopping adventure with a girlfriend. And ever since then I have been eyeing (and adding) other snake print pieces to my wardrobe. 

These are the other items I’m currently covering: 

1. A gorgeous satin skirt from that’s giving me major Réalisation Par vibes. 

2. A classic headband for a more subtle approach.

3. A handbag that can go from spring to summer to fall effortlessly and back again.

4. A one piece swimsuit that’s not only sexy, but on trend with both the pattern and attached belt.

5. And the perfect mules to add to my ever growing collection of snake print shoes.

Has this trend slithered it’s way into your wardrobe yet?
