This Week

19 April 2015

70˚ degrees and sunny! Hello beautiful Spring. I'm already starting to see fresh blooms in the park and the tree across the street is in full yellow blooms! Hooray, winter is finally OVER. While I spent most of the week running around town getting things ready for my mom coming on Tuesday, I did have a moment to treat myself to a little retail therapy while out and about. You already spotted one of my new finds here (along with my new do') and you'll see the other Emilio Pucci inspired find tomorrow. 

Added a few blooms to the desk to brighten things up...

And snacked on my newest addiction, Pasta Chips. My favorite is Alfredo. If you haven't tried them yet, you need to!

Also, it would seem that Charlie found a new bestie...

Turquoise and Lace

17 April 2015

Earlier this week you might have spotted me doing a little Spring shopping at the Dune London Fall Preview. These shoes happily came home with me with the addition of this {clutch equipped with the} perfect pop of color. It was almost too perfect of a pairing for my lace skirt set... Helloooo Spring!

What's In My Bag: Clutch Edition

16 April 2015

Truth be told, I'm not entirely sure how I've gone all this time without having a nude bag in my life. {It's just as essential as having a black bag, if not more..} Luckily I've found the error of my ways and snagged this lovely wrap clutch from ASOS a couple of weeks back. Don't worry, I quickly made up for lost time. 

Now, as far as the clutch goes, it's a bohemian dream with the wrap detail and gold hardware. I have more than just a feeling that it's going to be paired with just about everything as the weeks go on. So, I'm apologizing ahead of time for the frequent appearances...

What's In My Bag: 
The Bag - Asos Clutch Wrap Bag, $33

The Daily Essentials:
I think it's safe to say that I like to be prepared, so extra sunglasses and a statement necklace {this one is so much fun!} are always spotted in my bags, sometimes in bulk. I usually feel safest with a couple cheapie pairs, just in case one breaks or I need to share a pair.

Obviously a metrocard is never far from reach. I actually spent the entire winter with it in my coat pocket so I didn't have to dig around for it. My Timo! wallet/case keeps it from getting lost in the 'clutter'. Plus I keep my debit card, a few business cards and my ID in there for easy access.  I almost always have old photo booth pictures from events in my purse for an instant smile maker

 I always looks for ridiculously fun cases for my phone and am currently obsessed with this cute kitty case. It's hilarious and is always a conversation starter.

I have a serious lip color obsession and often find around 4-5 different colors in my bag.  These bareMinerals Oil Balms are my current favorites. If you haven't already, you HAVE to try them. They're so smooth and refreshing.

Black Culottes

15 April 2015

I've been on the hunt for a black pair of culottes for the last couple of months, I feel like I've looked just about everywhere and could not find one that matched my size or height {short people problems}. So finally when I popped into T.J.Maxx to pick up some home goods I wandered over to see what they had on the racks. First, I found a white pair and kept looking and then fumbled upon these! I pretty much dropped everything and ran to try them on only to find they fit like a {freaking!} glove. Best part. $15, people. Win for the weekend.

They also gave me an excuse to finally wear the Kendra Scott earrings I made at their Color Bar a couple of weeks back. So cute!

Mosaic Maxi

14 April 2015

Now that Spring is finally starting to show it's 'face' around these parts I figured it was time to update the 'do' a little bit before Summer starts heading in this direction. So, over the weekend I popped into Sassoon to see Joe, Antonio and Hamed for a little cut and color action. Since I'm not full on ready to take the plunge and opt for an edgy cut from their {new} gorgeous Umbra collection I figured a new bold hue of coppery-red from Joe and Hamid would be the perfect pairing for my Spring wardrobe. {Like most new-to-me things} It's taken a moment to adjust to the new depth of color but I'm kind of in love with it and I think I'll let it hang around for awhile. As far a the drop of an inch or two in length, Antonio added a more shape and gave my bangs a once over before sending me off with my sleek {and bold} new look. Whole new season, whole new look.

13 April 2015

 As I've been going through my drawers and moving my winter pieces into storage I've stumbled across a few pieces that got little wear before I packed them away for winter, this skirt included. I love the abstract {almost brushstroke like} print and I didn't hesitate once when pairing it with my monster bag last week before heading into the salon for a quick cut and to give my self a color refresh. I have a feeling I'll be finding all new pairings for this skirt as the season progresses and the temperatures eventually rise.
