Wide Leg Jeans {& thredUP}

Feb 15, 2016







Top, sweater, jeans, & crossbody thredUP c/o (similar items linked below | Shoes, Tory Burch (old). Similar Here | Watch, Michael Kors

Would you believe me if I told you that this ENTIRE outfit (not including watch & shoes) was a hundred bucks?? Because it was! All thanks to thredUP, an online company that makes upscale thrift shopping easy and affordable. Here's a breakdown of the cost of the look:

Crossbody: $28.49 / Retails for around $70 from Nordstrom Rack
AG Jeans: $33.49 / Retail for $188
Madewell Sweater: $27.49 / Retails for $60
Gap Button up: $11.99 / Retails for $50
Total: $101.46

I mean...yes, please. Not only can you buy great name brand items in excellent condition, but you can also sell the gently used items you have sitting in your closet to them ;) They make that super easy by sending you a bag to load up and send back to them, the postage is prepaid so you just stick it in  your mailbox or drop it off at the post office, easy peasy! 

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day! Mine ended with the season premeier of The Walking Dead. Oh em gee, it was so intense. I'm like addicted to that show but I also question why I watch it, I swear it gives me anxiety. SO INTENSE!!!

Also: I'm wearing this foundation and I am smitten. I got it yesterday along with a new brush and holy best foundation ever! I'll do a review this week about it <3

Thanks for stopping by loves, xoxo



Green x Red

Feb 12, 2016











Cardigan, Shein (obsessed!) | Similar shoes here (just ordered them in blue, $35!) | Jeans, Nordstrom Rack ($30! size down) | Sunnies, H & M | Watch, Michele | Bag, Gucci

I know I wore this cardi already within the last few posts (last seen here) but I am obsessed with it. I love the green, the length, the thickness, everrrrthanggg. I am also pleasantly surprised with how well it goes with so much, like the red ankle strap sandals! Pieces like this belong in my closet. 

My husband let me have my Valentine's day gift early and I can't wait to use it. He got me a new lens for my camera and I love it. It was a very thoughtful gift and I'm glad he got me something I will get tons of use out of. Can't wait to snap some shots with it this weekend! I also can't wait to give him his gift!! I think this will be the best gift I've ever gotten him and it will definitely be a surprise. I can't tell you what it is yet, I promise it's not a baby though (did you read that, Mom? ha!). 

Also, shout out to my sister for being the best photog. She is only 17 but I swear the girl's got talent. I know I'm like, really awk in front of the camera BUT to be so young she is really good at operating the camera (which face it, is like a computer) and she's also super awesome at knowing people's angles. I love that. I'm glad we both enjoy photography stuff (especially since most of my pics would be mirror shots! haha), but also because it's nice to know another creative soul. Warms my heart :)

Boyfriend Style

Feb 5, 2016









Jeans, Old Navy | Sweater, Old Navy | Shoes, old. Similar Here & love these sandals! | Sunglasses, Ray Ban | Bag here

Neutrals are where it's at. For the millionth time, neutrals. I have been leaning toward grays, beiges, blacks, and ivories so that I can mix them up and get more wear out of each piece. I like for the accessories to be the pops of color, like these magenta heels and multi-color bag. You need these boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend jeans are perfect for those days when you really don't give af but you still want to look cute, you have those? Yeah, you feel me then. Throw on a cute boyfriend sweater and some girly shoes, you are instant chic my dear. 

I am so thankful for this blog. I started it so that I could share what I love, and although the thoughts in my head don't always translate into real life the way that I want them to, I am so glad I have this place to share my style, finds, beauty hacks, photography- all of it. Not only do I love sharing things but I also love how it has helped me grow. I feel like I have a better grasp of who I am and what I like. It has definitely become sort of a 'mood board' for my style. I am also thankful (to the moon & back!) for each and every single one of you! Thank you for the continued support :)

Plain & Cozy

Feb 3, 2016






Denim Shirt & Cardigan, Choies, c/o | Denim, H&M. Similar Here | Bag | Sunglasses, H&M | Booties here & here

Let me just start this post by saying how obsessed I am with these booties. I want to wear them with everyyythingggg. Can't wait to rock them with cut-offs this spring/summer #allthehearteyes. You know your girl loves some leopard and these shoes speak my love language. Ok, I sound crazy now lol. 

Let me tell you about a quick little at home pick me up: a green tea detox bath. So refreshing! I use five tea bags in warm bath water, let it steep for a few minutes before I get in and then leave the bags while I soak. I swear my skin glows a little after one of these baths (or it's dyed a bit from the green tea (jk kidding here guys), either way I love it :) ) I add a few drops of lavender for scent and relaxation purposes, but it's like being in a spa for a few minutes. So nice. 

xoxo
