Gingham Style with Vici Collection

Gingham is one of those fabrics that you instantly associate with spring or summer. It's lightweight so it's no wonder that as the temperature starts to warm up, the fabric starts showing up in stores. This year, there are so many gingham options to choose from--from shirts to pants to dresses. 

My Tailored Jumpsuit from AQAQ

If someone were to ask you what size you were, you'd probably be able to name your size (or sizes, depending on a particular brand). We get caught up in sizes that we often forget that it's more important to pay attention to the fit rather than the number on the tag. That's why when I was looking for a jumpsuit to wear to my wedding reception three years ago, I only had 3 requirements: it must be blush, it must be wide-legged and it must have a plunging neckline. 

Unboxing: Vici Collection + Miracle Miles

I was so excited to unbox my purchases from Vici Collection and Miracle Miles! I ordered from both stores on a holiday weekend and they both arrived 4 days later. And let me tell you, I had to try to forget they had arrived until I was able to open the packages on camera with you guys. Come see what I bought and watch me try them on!

Need a Hanky? Try a Handkerchief Hem!

Do you know what a handkerchief dress or skirt is? It's dress or skirt that has an asymmetrical hem with several corners. Imagine a square handkerchief, pick it up in the center and that's what this hem looks like.  Up until last year, I had associated this hemline with ballroom dancers and figure skaters. And why not? the corners or points of the dress help to create a lot of movement. If you're someone who likes to twirl in dresses, this hemline is definitely for you!

Giveaway + Review: My Jord Watch

I previously wrote about my penchant for watches so this is why I'm excited to be sharing with you a watch company called Jord. Jord is a company that specializes in watches with wooden bands. This unique feature along with their interesting designs make their watch stand out. They have designs varying from traditional to sleeker silhouettes.

Fashion Forward: Pippa & Pearl

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me mention that I love supporting local and small businesses. Not only is it good for your local economy and helps in creating a sense of community within your area, it also helps foster diverse styles. I may be old fashioned but having everyone shop at the same 3 or 4 stores is a little... 1984 to me. 

This is why I am so excited to be sharing with you a brand called Pippa & Pearl.

The Catalina Weekender Bag

We did quite a bit of traveling in 2017. We started the year off with a 3 country trip to Vietnam, Thailand and Japan in January and then another trip in the summer that took us to Belfast, London and Paris. A few weeks later, we also left for a week long trip to Lawrence, KS and Kansas City, KS. Given all this, it was no surprise that my Dakine bag, which I'd been using as my carry on/weekender bag since 2011, finally died on me.

My Watch? The Horse, of Course!

remember when my parents bought me a watch in the first grade. I had the time right in the palm of my hands (or my left wrist, anyway). I felt so grown up! Granted, it was a digital watch but by the time I was in the third grade, I was rocking my grown up Mickey Mouse watch with his arms as the minute and hour hands in elementary school. SO. STYLISH. LOL

It's been a while since I've bought a bag and lately, I've been wanting one in nude. Although with us in the middle of building our new home, a lot of purchases have to be scaled back. But that won't stop me from doing the internet version of window shopping, will it? Below are five nude bags that would be absolutely perfect for all of your neutral purse needs!

Memorial Day Haul

I know, I know--Memorial Day was two weeks ago but it took me a good week to have all the stuff that I bought get delivered and then I was sick the past week. Anyway, let's cut to the chase and see some of the stuff I bought...
