Mixing Textures

Miss Selfridge Top - River Island Skirt - Vince Camuto Shoes - H&M Clutch - Mango Bangle - Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in 'VIP Red'

While I have yet to fully embrace the fringe trend (I don't think I own a single fringe piece in my closet?), I've absolutely been loving these fringe heels I've been seeing around lately. I decided to use that as my inspiration piece for this outfit - between the fringe, faux-leather, ribbed tank, and suede clutch, there's a whole lot of texture going on. Topped off with a vampy red lip, I think this look is so perfect for a night out.

How would you style a pair of fringe heels?

Forever 21 Cardigan - Zara Dress - Chanel Espadrilles - H&M Necklace 

And I'm finally back with a new post! It's crazy to me that we're now in September. The past month flew by, mostly due to the craziness that is settling into a new job.. oh, and planning a wedding. No big deal. 

Over the summer, I was all about simple and easy dresses and this particular navy one from Zara is absolutely perfect. It's both comfortable and extra flattering, and I love that I'm able to throw it on for a day out running errands or for work. I paired it up with a chunky cardigan and flat shoes (espadrilles have been my #1 shoe of the summer) to play it down and keep it work appropriate, but I think it would look just as good with heels and bold lips for a night out. 

And of course, I topped the look off with my cat-eye sunnies that I received from Polette. As I already mentioned in this post, they're my go-to for sunglasses and fun frames.

Mother's Day Gift Guide

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide -- one that would work for any mother figure in your life. 

LUSH 'Amandopondo' Bubble Bar - LUSH always has the cutest bath goodies, and when I saw how pretty this particular Bubble Bar was, I couldn't resist adding it to my gift guide. It makes the perfect add-on to any gift. 

J.Crew Statement Necklace (similar) - The great thing about statement necklaces is there's such a huge variety out there, it would be hard not to find one that fits mom's style.. whether that's bright, bold or just plain sparkly.

Kate Spade New York Clutch - I love everything from the pretty color to the scalloped edges on this clutch, and I think it's so perfect for Spring and Summer. 

Sam Edelman Flats - If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I've been raving over how comfortable these flats are. On top of being ultra soft and comfortable, they go with any outfit and come in so many fun colors. 

Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow Palette - This shimmery eyeshadow palette is so pretty and has the perfect nude shades that can transition a look from day to night.  

Tory Burch for Fitbit Bangle - The Fitbit craze has been around for a while and now even some top designers are getting in on it! How cute is this bangle? It's both stylish and functional, and perfect for the active moms out there.

April has always been a favorite of mine, not only because I'm an April baby (ok maybe my birthday does have a lot to do with it), but because it really just feels like Spring around here. And this Spring, I'm all about the florals. I love incorporating it into my look in a fun way, which is why I loved this Kora Rae pencil skirt when I saw it. It's equal parts feminine and bold, and couldn't be more perfect for this season.  

Between my birthday and a very special surprise proposal, I think it's safe to say the past week has been an eventful one. Matt and I wrapped the week up with a day in Newport on Saturday, and of course I couldn't help but stage a quick photo shoot -- despite the windy conditions which, as you can probably see from a few of the photos below, posed a bit of a challenge for us to work with ;) 

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Navy & Leopard

T by Alexander Wang Dress - BP. Shoes - Michael Kors Watch - MAC Lipstick in 'Viva Glam I'

I feel like we have a lot of catching up to do. First let me say, trying to keep up with this little blog while also working full time takes a little bit of juggling, to say the least. But here I (finally) am, with a couple of pieces I've been itching to feature. Because, guys, I can't tell you how beyond comfortable these heels from Nordstrom are. They are so perfect for wearing around the office for 8+ hours and also work great for a day OR night out. I love them so much, I'm considering getting them in black, too! And, as many of you know, I'm a big fan of mixing high and low pieces so  I was excited to wear this T by Alexander Wang zip dress with the pumps for a fun day out with Matt.
