These boots were made for walkin’ 

A good pair of boots can take an outfit a long way. 


When I bought these red booties from Forever 21 years ago it was on a complete whim. 

And to be completely honest they sat on a shelf in my closet far too often. 

Until recently. 

I love how they played up the pattern in the sweater and are such an unexpected way to add a pop of color to any outfit. 

Sadly, they have seen better days and I’m not on the lookout for a replacement pair. 😭


If you have any suggestions on where I should look for a new pair drop me a comment below.

Feeling Zippy 

I definitely consider myself more of a pants girl than a dress girl, but something drew me to this Nicole Miller dress.

Dress: Nicole Miller/ Jacket: Max Studio/ Boots: Sam Edelman/ Tights: Forever 21

The cut ended up being perfect and adorable, while the zippers and sparkle gave it that little extra something special. 

The skirt was fun and swingy making this piece girlie, but not overly so. 

I kept my other pieces simple to let the dress itself shine through and kept my jewelry minimal as well (and I’m going to blame the rain on my less than inspired hairdo).

How would you style this piece?

Leave me a comment and let me know.

Printed Perfection

Everything about this printed Grey Jason Wu sweater is perfection!

The fit is great, the material luxurious, and the pattern so playful and fun it will elevate the simplest of pieces.

Sweater: Grey Jason Wu/ Skirt: H & M/ Shoes: Sam Edelman/ Purse: See by Chloe

I paired it with my red pleated skirted from H&M this day, but it paired just as well with some black wide leg trousers.

To tie in the navy in the sweater I brought out my See by Chloe bucket bag (another resolution of mine—not be lazy and actuallyutilize my collection of purses).

And for shoes my ever trusty Sam Edelman booties (I promise I have other shoes, they’re just my typical go to). 

Any suggestions on how to change up my footwear and be more creative? What’re your go to shoes and pieces?

Go To Uniform

Everyone has their go to uniform. 

Jacket: Max Studio/ Top: C&C California/ Skirt: Vince Camuto/ Boots: Forever 21

Mine happens to be a simple white tee shirt, my black leather jacket and either a skirt or jeans on the bottom with one of my many pairs of black booties. 

I never fail to feel pulled together when I wear this combo, which is probably why I keep going back to it time and again.

Would love to hear what your go to uniform is.

Next Up

So excited for my next two items! 

I’ve been eyeing this Jason Wu Grey sweater for a bit now (it hasn’t officially shipped so fingers crossed they still have it in stock—I’ve learned to worry when there’s a delay). 

I love the playful pattern and the colors will make it so easy to pair with quite a few items I already have in my closet.

This dress wasn’t on my radar as long as the sweater above, but after my last order I realized that maybe I should try my hand at ordering pieces that I can wear to work.

That red dress from last week is gorgeous and fits like a glove but is a little too over the top and I’ve been struggling in my attempts to find a place to wear it. 

This dress can be dressed up and down and hits in all the right places.

The zippers add a bit of edge and the glitter adds a bit of glam—two things that make this girl very happy indeed. 

And who doesn’t love afun swingy skirt?


Hope everyone is having a good week so far. 

And to those on the east coast dealing with that storm (my sis is one of them)—stay safe and warm!

🎟 Pop of Pink Remixed 🎟

I am going to be so sad to part ways with this coat later this week. 

But, that being said I’ve fallen into bad habits quickly—remixing the same piece too much, which in turn freezes my creativity. 

And probably gets boring for you guys as well.

Coat: Rebecca Minkoff/ Top: S.O.Y. / Jeans: 7 For All Mankind/ Boots: Reaction by Kenneth Cole

But before I parted ways, I wanted to give it one more spin, so I paired it with a simple t-shirt (that I’d forgotten I even owned) and some jeans for a quick and easy look.

How perfect is the collar with the neon trim of this shirt though? 😍

If anyone out there is doing Rent The Runway I would highly recommend adding it to your list!

🌺 The Simple Things 🌺

Happy Friday! 

I slowly feel as though I’m getting the hanging of this whole layering schtick—just in time for the weather to warm up next week. 

Coat: Rebecca Minkoff/ Dress: Cupcakes & Cashmere/ Sweater: Forever 21/ Boots: Simply Vera by Vera Wang

I accidentally ordered this Cupcakes & Cashmere dress a size too large, so I have been layering sweaters over it so that everyone doesn’t get too much of an eye full (the one I’m wearing here is from Forever21). 

The dress is supposed to be midi length, but due to my short stature it fits more like a maxi dress (although it’s possible it would have fit more like a midi if I hadn’t messed up the sizing 🤔). 

Either way I still absolutely love it though. The texture of the material is exceptionally soft and the stripes have a playful sportiness to them. 

And once again I am wearing this lovely Rebecca Minkoff coat—this time with the fun pink fur collar attached to play up the pink stripes in the dress.

For shoes I tossed on my Simply Vera by Vera Wang booties from two years ago.

They’ve seen better days (I may have already super glued the heel back on…twice), but I can’t bring myself to part with them. 

I also can’t seem to bring myself to part with this coat. 

Should I hold onto it for another week? 

Let me know what you think!
