journey to the cliffs of moher

  On my second day in Ireland, I signed up for a day-long bus trip to the Cliffs of Moher. These magnificent cliffs are located on the opposite side of Ireland from Dublin, so the bus took us through a few cute villages on the way and on the return trip! The Cliffs of Moher...Read More →

shades of grey

Have you noticed how much I love to layer? It’s one of my favorite tricks for being able to wear staples like this shirt again and again with a bunch of different things! I know I also mentioned recently how much I love the look of a blouse layered under dress. It’s a polished way to...Read More →

camel, black and a touch of leopard

Camel is such a timeless, classic shade that works wonders year round. Whether it’s a chic, neutral handbag for spring or a soft camel coat for winter, this color looks amazing with nearly every hue on the spectrum. With the temps dropping I’ve been craving a new camel coat, and this one from Theory is at the top of...Read More →

the one investment you must make this season

Is there anything better than a sleek pair of over-the-knee boots for fall? They really are hard to beat. In the dependability department, Stuart Weitzman gets an A+. I picked up my first pair of over-the-knee boots from Stuart Weitzman over six years ago - this was when he introduced the 50/50 style that saw a surge in popularity a couple of years back. Are you surprised I still own them today?Read More →

I have a couple pairs of sunglasses that are always on constant rotation – the first is a pair of simple black Celine frames I picked up in Paris a few years ago. They’re perfectly basic and are a flattering shape on my face – I don’t know what I would do without them! The...Read More →

crushing on capes

Clearly I’m crushing on capes this season! I packed not one but THREE capes/ponchos for my Paris + Florence adventures. I’m sad to say this isn’t one of them – it’s a bit out of my price range this season, but that doesn’t mean I can’t love it from afar! There are so many gorgeous capes available...Read More →

seeing red

Since I’ve been over in London, I’ve never left the flat without a scarf. They are a necessary layer – while it’s pretty chilly outside, it is SO hot inside everywhere due to no air conditioning in any of the buildings. This makes activities like the riding the tube unbearable if you’re wearing heavy clothing. That’s...Read More →

Did everyone shop the Shopbop sale last week? I hope so! There were so many good things to choose from, but from the looks of it everything sold out super quick! I'm glad they did though, because it has made room for a bunch of amazing new arrivals!Read More →
