Pretty Little Things That I Love vol. 41

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 2 comments

Turns out, last week’s ode to indigo didn’t quite get my love affair with the color out of my brain. In fact, it may have only served to reaffirm my love. So as I do, I’ve found myself gravitating toward any number of lovely things sporting indigo as of late. From the most gorgeous indigo tablecloth to a pretty stunning pair of earrings, there is essentially no end to my conviction that just about everything should be blue and beautiful …

Knock on wood, it seems we’re finally going to get a reprieve from the unusually persistant rainy weather we’ve had lately. I can’t wait to soak up all the sunshine! Which, of course, has me loving any number of bright and summery things. From neon keychains to the perfect shade of nail polish (Essie’s The More the Merrier), I’m wanting to deck out everything in sight with a blast of cheerful color. Heck, I even want this ridiculously fun soccer …

In keeping with my love for all things patriotic at the moment, consider this your daily dose of festive red, white and blue. From colorful flip flops to the perfect red polka dot bathing suit to this striped striped t-shirt that I adore, I just can’t get enough at the moment. Which is probably pretty appropriate with the 4th just a few days away, no? Whether spending the day at the beach or just casually lounging at home, I think we should …

Lately I’ve developed quite the fascination with at home beauty treatments. From hair masks to body scrubs to face masks, there are so many I want to try! Our very own Stephanie of Henry Happened recently posted this amazing guide to at home beauty ingredients that has only fueled my obsession with trying a whole slew of natural beauty remedies. Did you even know coconut oil was so good for you and your body? I sure didn’t, but I’m planning …

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, Summer | 3 comments

It’s rainy here today. Unpleasantly so. But you know what? I’m not letting it get me down. Or at least, I’m trying not to. By rainy day dreaming about long lazy summer days at the beach, of course. Which naturally led me down a bunny trail of hunting down a few new summer essentials that I’d love to add to my closet this summer. A great bathing suit, the perfect canvas tote and a perfectly adorable cover up, for starters!

As promised, we’re keeping this fiesta rolling all week long! It wouldn’t be Cinco de Mayo if we didn’t talk about brightly colored dresses and some fabulous accessories. Here’s the thing with Cinco de Mayo – it’s the perfect excuse to go as bold, patterned and colorful as you’d like! So, personally, I vote for layering it up. A kicking party dress, a vibrant clutch, a pretty scarf and a classic wedge to keep the whole look from getting too …

Favorites: 10 Pretty Hairstyles for Spring

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 0 comments

It was just about a year ago that I was contemplating long hair and whether I wanted to cut my hair, which I had worn in a bob for years, or let it grow. Turns out, it’s a year later and my hair is far and away the longest it has been since I lopped off 10″ back in 2007. I love how I look with a bob and it’s undeniably easier to take care of at that length, but …

What To Wear: A Spring Shower

What To Wear: A Spring Shower

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 1 comment

Spring is the ultimate season for showers! And I’m not just talking about rain. Between baby showers and bridal showers, I’m sure most of us ladies have a pretty full calendar over the next few months. I’ve already been to a couple in the last few weeks and I have several more to rock out before summer comes and goes. So it stands to reason, we should probably talk about shower fashion. Oh and how it’s the perfect excuse to …

No doubt, spring has been on my mind basically nonstop lately. It’s probably because it’s still feeling quite cold here in upstate New York. I swear they keep saying it’s spring, but I’m not feeling it yet. So naturally, all I want to do is surround myself with soft spring colors and think about planting a garden. From pretty accessories to lovely pastel garden essentials, I am loving all things spring. In particular, this scarf and this garden hose. Because …
