World Peace Gonna Break Out, From Here on In We’re Eatin’ Takeout





My outfit  from yesterday–I felt amazing (which should really be the goal of getting dressed–wear something that will brighten your day).

New blazer from Zara in Barcelona (the other part of my haul, in addition to those snake print pants).  It’s going to be a new staple–I’m overwhelmed by the number of outfit ideas I have with it (BF jeans, navy tops, over a floral dress…).  It fits like a dream and the color is so unique and fun!

Picked up some faded jean shorts recently, I had been looking for a good pair because I feel like I’ve started to wear my darker ones constantly.  I was so opposed to jean shorts for the longest time, instead opting for chino-style shorts from J. Crew (really recommend them, come in a variety of lengths and great colors and prints every season), because I could never find comfy pairs.  My aversion towards denim shorts started shifting when I found some really unique colors and prints in comfy styles, and now I also like the classic denim-looking ones.  If you’re in the market, I also love the pairs in my collection from Gap, Marc by Marc Jacobs, 7 for all Mankind, Forever 21, and AG Adriano Goldschmied.

With a look like this, based on a bold piece paired with relaxed ones, a couple complementary (but not too attention-grabbing) pieces of jewelry make it.  I got this butterfly pendant at a craft fair in Spain and I love it.  I picked up these earrings on my trip too, at Accessorize, which is like European Claire’s but cooler.  I love bold, colorful gems, and the teardrop shape of these make them so versatile.  And they work with this look because they’re neon yellow and mint!  I also added my pair of little gold Akira rings I’ve been throwing on with a lot this summer.

The only print in this look is my fave faux-snake bag from Stella McCartney, and my go-to nude flats keep it sleek and streamlined.  With the boldness on top, I don’t want my feet stealing the spotlight!

What I wore yesterday:

  • Zara blazer
  • H&M Conscious Collection tank
  • Old Navy shorts
  • Boutique 9 flats
  • Stella McCartney bag
  • necklace from a craft fair in Spain
  • Accessorize earrings
  • Akira rings

Of course, the life and vibe of an outfit is enhanced by what you do in it.  I had an amazing time yesterday seeing How to Train Your Dragon 2 (love those movies–too sweet) and chilling out at home with one of my BFFs.  To give you an idea, it involved Facebook stalking pictures from prom at our alma mater, eating Chinese food, watching movie trailers and old episodes of Spongebob.  Oh, and singing Shontelle really loud.

And I’m On My Way to You (Another look from Spain!)


yellow dress

What I wore on a day trip from Barcelona to Tossa del Mar, Spain.  This yellow dress is a staple in my wardrobe.  It fits like a glove and is the perfect fit and flare style with just the right seams to flatter my body type.  And with the color, this simple dress is a statement on its own.

I love pairing blue with this dress, and my blue rubber cat flats worked like a summer dream, as did my new go-to blue and green trimmed summer fedora and this cool metallic blue cuff that I picked up on my trip.  It’s reminiscent of the colorful metallics from the recent Lanvin runway, but I found it at an craft fair in Barcelona!  Love.

Had fun stacking cuffs, also wearing one that I love with a blue and green and gold pattern from Art Effect.  One cuff is solid and the other more intricate, and they’re different sizes, so the combo works like stacking other bracelets.  Those and some blue and green stone stud earrings were the only jewelry I needed.

Neither of these are pictured, but when I was chilly I threw on my favorite Forever 21 jean jacket and I carried my stuff in my fave snake print Stella McCartney crossbody (a nice neutral pattern to be stylish but not steal attention from these cool colors).

What I wore in Tossa del Mar:

  • J. Crew Factory Store dress
  • Charlotte Olympia shoes
  • Betsey Johnson hat
  • blue cuff from Barcelona craft fair
  • patterned cuff from Art Effect
  • Francesca’s Collections earrings

Title from new Lea Michele single that has already become my song of the summer, On My Way.  Totally obsessed–puts me in a great mood and I can’t get it out of my head.

Big Apple Girl





What I wore on my trip to NYC this past weekend!

This dress was an amazing find over spring break.  The colorful floral print is perfect, and between the zippers that make it a mix of girly and high-fashion edgy, and the fit-and-flare style (my go-to)  I feel like it was made for me.  I knew I wanted to pair it with my combat boots, and bold accessories, and that’s just what I did.

I chose to pick two colors in the dress and match accessories to them–a yellow purse and a bold pink lip (I’m a big fan of lipstick as an accessory).  The sunglasses, especially with the lipstick, make me feel so chic.  And all I needed to add to that was some simple silver jewelry.  To stay warm I wore my cropped navy faux-leather jacket by Ali & Kris, not pictured.

Had to take a pic in front of Bergdorf’s, where I did some awesome shopping on their famous fifth floor, which features favorite lines like Milly, Tibi, DVF, Theory, and Rag & Bone.  I got a few great pieces you will definitely be  seeing on here in the coming weeks!

What I wore in NYC:

  • MSGM dress from Nordstrom
  • Madden Girl boots
  • Street Level bag from
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses
  • MICHAEL Michael Kors bracelet
  • Hue tights
  • earrings from Clothes Minded Boutique
  • Smashbox (an awesome cruelty-free makeup brand) lipstick in Fuschia
  • and of course, my eternally chic Aunt Florence’s watch


Hope you all feel amazing this week.  Thanks so much for reading my blog!
