Moving time!

This weekend me and my boyfriend packed our bags to move in with my parents until our first home is built!! Such a bittersweet feeling. Surprisingly I felt a little sad leaving our very first apartment together, but I am super excited for what’s ahead! Moving is so fun….. jk ๐Ÿ™‚ You don’t really realize all the stuff you have until you’re packing it up. My whole car was full of clothes and shoes ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank goodness our new place will have a huge closet!

It has been a crazy month between moving and it being the end of my second semester in Grad school. I just keep telling myself “it will get done”. But, May needs to hurry up and get here already ๐Ÿ™‚ If anyone has any tips on how to get through crazy life changes such as moving, please pass along!

A few of my outfits from this week are below!! I found this cute Abercrombie & Fitch jean jacket while packing and I think it’s so cute for the Spring! I am really into comfortable loose pants as you can see in my second picture. I just bought a cropped pair from Loft that should arrive any day now (post to come)!!! My last picture was what I wore on Easter Sunday! I wore colored pants from JCrew with a cute off white Free People tunic. I was going for a “spring look” even though it is still 45 degrees outside ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Hoping this is the last time I have to wear a hat or a sweater this year. I’m dreaming big since it is only the beginning of March and they are calling for snow this week :/ my jean jacket is from Free People and off white pants are from Lucky Brand. I really loved the combination I wore. I’ve actually never worn this outfit! I must be on a blue kick this week because my nails are the same color as my shirt ๐Ÿ˜‚

my insta post said… when in doubt wear black. Black never does you wrong!!! My sweater has little threads of color throughout and is super comfortable making the perfect Saturday outfit. It is from urban outfitters and my pants are from Lucky Brand! Boots are Steve Madden! ๐Ÿ™‚

Another Day Another Dollar

The week went by super fast and sometimes life gets a little hectic. I try to think about things that I am grateful for instead of the things I’m unhappy with. This totally helps with getting rid of any negative thoughts you may have!

I’m wearing my new Free People sweater from South Moon Under today. It is so comfortable and looks really cute with jeans. It’s also 40% off!

I had a hard time choosing which shoes to wear, but I went with my white booties from Frye. It is a weird feeling putting white boots on in the winter but, let’s be honest, who said you can’t do that anyways!? I think they are versatile and can be worn any time during the year. Pictures of my outfit are below ๐Ÿ™‚

Winter Blues

Winter always makes me want to sit on my couch and literally not go anywhere. I strongly dislike the cold and the last couple weeks have felt like -3 degrees. Finally I woke up to see that it’s actually 40 degrees out today! Never would I ever think I would be so excited to see 40 degrees. I was so happy that I decided to wear a cute T-shirt dress with a sleeveless pancho over it. Wearing a cute dress to work always makes my mood 10 times better throughout the day. I’m also wearing my favorite snake skin booties. These booties are still available at South Moon Under . I would recommend getting yourself a pair! They go with almost any outfit and they are very comfortable (I actually walked around Las Vegas in them and my feet didn’t fall off). Hopefully this weather stays for at least a few days!

Lucky Denim Looks ๐Ÿ€ย 

What a weekend! As usual it went by way too fast ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I went to Wyndrige Farm in Pennsylvania, where I got to enjoy some delicious beer and cider. If you are ever around York, PA, I recommend you check it out. 

Lucky me got to wear my new Lucky Jeans this weekend. I got two pairs of Lucky Jeans for one!! I guess it was a Jack Rogers weekend too because I paired both my weekend outfits with them! You can see the pics below. 

 Lucky Jeans are my favorite… they fit well and they are really comfortable. There are also so many choices that it’s hard to pick just one! The fringe and stitched designs on denim have become one of my favorite trends this year. As shown in my picture, I am wearing a plain white top with my stitched jeans. The white top looked perfectly simple, while still looking pretty chic. I was not a fan of wearing a shirt with a design with these because I really wanted the focus to be on the stitched flowers on the jeans. With my white denim, I wore a dark gray top that matched with the gray stitch on the cuff of the jeans. My gray top is also from Lucky Brand.  I really love the ruffle bottom on the tank and cute buttons on the top. The cuff is obviously why I bought these jeans. They are adorable, fun and can be worn to any occasion. Lucky Brand has the best clothes, so Here is a link to all their Lucky selections! 

Me and my boyfriend had a nice, casual Friday night out with friends. I can’t remember the last time we actually went out where it wasn’t just the two of us. We definitely enjoyed ourselves, hence the red wine in my hand:) I got to wear my new  jeans from American Eagle out too! American eagle makes the best jeans… the material is sooo comfy. This pair has an uneven destroyed hem and two color tones on the front and back. They  are so fun to wear. I paired these with an off the shoulder patterned shirt & of course my Steve Madden wedges. My turquoise Kate Spade satchel gave a little pop of color to the whole outfit. You can barely notice but I’m wearing long statement earrings from Lucky Brand with a small gold necklace. I thought about wearing a longer necklace, but when I tried it on, there was way too much going on. Remember simple style is good style ๐Ÿ˜˜ #whatiwore 

Business to Casualย 


Oh how I love my new knotted bodycon dress by Sadie & Sage apparel! I got this dress from Southmoonunder on sale for $36 during their huge sale last week! It was such a great deal. I always try to find outfits that I can wear to work and to other social events without looking like I am about to step into a business meeting. This dress is simple, and it’s easy to dress it up or down depending on the occasion. When I wore it I was going to work, so I tried to be as simple as possible. I added a thin chained silver necklace to keep it classy and wore my light grey BOC wedges rather than strappy heels so it didn’t look like I was ready for the club ๐Ÿ˜œ 

I would definitely wear this to a happy hour or daytime event too! 

White Sneakers ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ and Tie-Dye


Happy Saturday! โ˜€๏ธ 
I enjoyed my Friday night walking around Old Town in shoes that didn’t make me want to sit down. White sneakers are taking over the sidewalks and it’s awesome! My white sneakers are Adidas, but so many brands have the white everyday sneaker look. I’ve noticed that a lot of them have fun designs on them or a huge platform. Sandals aren’t the only thing you need for summer right now. 

I also love my soft tee from American Eagle. Tie-dye designs are planning to stick around through 2017.  It’s no new trend but it’s popping up a lot more lately on different pieces of clothing. You either hate or love the tie-dye look, there is no in between. If you look around there are so many different forms of it.  Some clothing has a more faded hue, while others go all out. It’s a fun look that we can thank the 60’s & the hippies for!

Denim… Denim…Denimย 

Sipping on my favorite beverage: craft beer. Jeans from American Eagleย 

When you talk about denim most people think a cute pair of blue jeans. You also wouldn’t think denim would be “trendy” if we were talking about jeans, because everyone wears those. But, wearing denim is my favorite style right now and it can be found on a lot of racks!

You can find denim dresses, denim blouses, denim skirts (yes!!! Those cute mini jean skirts you wore in middle school are back!). There is a lot of variety and creativity in the denim world right now.ย 

Speaking of creativity, let’s talk about jeans. Wearing jeans will obviously always be a thing. However, there are more options than just your typical blue jeans. It’s the time to be bold and buy (or make) a pair of jeans with floral patches, hole jeans, loose jeans, light and washed out jeans! There are so many options and most of these can go with anything! Your jeans can be so chic that you won’t have to worry about making the rest of your outfit look exciting.

I have two favorite pieces in my closet right now that are also in the pictures below. One is my blue denim spaghetti strap dress from Express and the other is my white denim skirt with a zipper in front from Free People/bought at South Moon Under.

I added my plain white tshirt under my dress to add an extra detail to my outfit. P.S. it also helps if you are a person like me who always has to pull your straps up. This is a cute, daytime outing look that I love!

No More Rules – Layer Your Jewelry

neckalceThe rule use to be โ€œyou canโ€™t wear silver and gold togetherโ€. But in 2017 that rule has become very irrelevant or everyone FINALLY realized that you can combine your different jewelry pieces and it is oh so very chic! Mixing metals, textiles, lengths, and colors is a fun trending style. The big statement pieces are still in too; however the simple jewelry that you can wear every day is definitely becoming more popular. There are many different ways to pull this trend off. You can use chokers, long chains, pendants, and more. Have your smaller pieces on a shorter chain, while having your bigger pendants or Lariats on longer chains. The first necklace should always be the one with the shortest chain, while the rest should be a few inches longer. The key is to make it look like you did not spend a lot of effort figuring this out. Now go get out of your comfort zone and mix and match your next statement piece!
