Made Well.

Some of my favorite pieces to style are versatile pieces that can be mixed & matched every season. For those kind of pieces, I know I can always count on Madewell to come through with pieces I can re-wear over and over again! I was so happy to know that Nordstrom now carries Madewell online and in-store! Ah! What doesn’t Nordstrom carry? I love that they carry every single brand- definitely a one-stop shop!

Here I put together this adorable polka dot shirt that was just calling my name. It’s perfect for work but also so fun for brunch with the girls! I styled it here with cute military shorts and the pointy flats added the right amount of easy-breesyness!

I always like to half tuck my shirts into my shorts/jeans for that extra detail!

I love to unbotton my shirts a little lower than usual for a sexier look! The secret is to put double sided tape so that your shirt stays in place!

Just Do It.

Taking you back to Paris! (still a few photos to share!) The weather was not too cold , it was just right for my cold weather standards because I’m definitely not the cold weather kind of girl, I hate the cold.

For this day, Betty and I visited my dear friends Morgane and Corentin from one of my favorite brands, Sezane. I always make sure that when I’m in Paris, I swing by to visit them at their dreamy studio- which is so beautiful btw! So we headed over to their studio for an early breakfast and a 3 hour catch-up session. Every time I’m with these three, time flies because we spend hours talking  and talking without ever looking at our phones!

Soon after, we headed back for a power nap and then woke up to grab lunch and roamed the city with all its beautiful backdrops!

I picked up these cool Nike sneakers at &OtherStories the first day i arrived. Walking around in sneakers and rad leather pants in Paris is definitely the way to go!

Can’t wait to go back to the city of lights soon! Stay tuned for a couple other Paris photos!

All About the Bags

springbags

BAGS BAGS BAGS! I will admit, I have a slight obsession with bags. Anything from a clutch to a big weekender- I love them all! Right now I am totally in love with over the top statement bags. All of these bags are great pieces that will really stand out. Wear them with a simple black outfit or go all out and mix your patterns!

Another way to take a plain bag and make it a statement bad is to add some accessories. Whether you are putting on leather stickers (SOOO in love) or tying on a scarf, throwing a little something extra on your bag will really make it a unique stand out piece. I am all for adding several different accessories that pair well together to really push your bag to a new level of chic. What are your favorite ways to amp up the look of your bags?
