Off The Shoulders

02 July 2015

At first glance I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this shirt. Sure, it looked cute but you can never really know how it's going to look when it's no longer hiding behind the computer screen and sitting right in front of you. Thankfully, it turned out to look so much better in person, and feels heavenly. {I've been finding that off the shoulder tops have the tendency to feel a little too tight in the arm area at times, not the case here}. Elephants, black and white with a punch of flair - could it be anymore perfect? Oh wait, it's under $20.

TfDiaries x Hallmark Signature

01 July 2015

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Hallmark through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Hallmark Signature, all opinions are my own.
For me, summer is full of occasions that require special thought and gifts, be it graduations, weddings or birthdays. And every special gift needs a card to share the feelings that the gift represents, right? So I was pretty excited when Hallmark asked me to style an outfit inspired by a Hallmark Signature card.

If you haven’t seen the Hallmark Signature cards, you’re in for a serious treat. They’re fun, playful, and often have multi uses - like the one I picked out and will be giving everyone this summer for their birthdays. Cute enough that it warranted the purchase of a handful!

When I think of summer, ice cream is one of the first things that comes to mind. It’s the perfect treat and there’s no shortage of trucks and stores as soon as the temperatures begin to rise. So, when I saw the ice cream sandwich card (which later doubles as a cell phone case! Super cool, right?), I immediately pictured myself in white with feminine details and a pop of color, which of course, led to the pink shoe choice. Classic summer style, with a more adult twist. It’s almost as if I’m channeling my inner 5 year old just sans the ice cream dripping all over my dress and shoes.

All I need now is an actual ice cream sandwich and my summer is complete.

The Golden Maxi

30 June 2015

Ok, there's no shortage of maxi dresses in my closet so you're no surprised that I brought home another one. Now, this one I'm still on the fence with it but so far (the whole one whopping wear I've gotten out of it} it seems ok. I think it might blend a little too much with the hair...

Do we love it or hate it?

Summer Essential: The Fun Jumpsuit

29 June 2015

When it comes to summer dressing I have a weakness for a pieces with movement and flow. There's just something bout walking down the sidewalk and watching your fabric flow with you. It's beautiful. 

So, once the sun comes out I find myself leaning towards floaty dresses, skirts and most recently this Aryn K jumpsuit. THIS JUMPSUIT GUYS. Truth be told I was a little nervous when I first tried it on, but after a few additions in the accessories department I've quickly fallen in love with it. It's effortless, and it has the flow, in the best possible way. Immediately making it a summer essential...

Cashmere and Lace

26 June 2015

I know what you're thinking, cashmere in the summer, really? Yeah, me too. But, a couple weeks back we had a cold snap and we're in the 60's which meant I clearly needed to bring out the cashmere sweater one last time before parting with it for the next several months. It was a sign and I went for it. I'm not going to lie, I adore it with this lace pencil skirt - which by the way turns out goes with just about everything.

For The Home: Remodo

25 June 2015

Since our home decor re-hash kicked off I've been looking for a fun pair of pillows to spice up our couch. There's just something about our grey couch against the bright wall that just isn't doing it for me. {Don't tell David!} I love the wall but the couch just might not be the best fit, so for now, spicing things up with fun prints and color doesn't hurt. When I found remodo, who is killing it the boxed bedrooms department by the way (seriously guys, they're awesome), I knew I stumbled on something great. I'm obsessed with their prints, textures and colors. They even have boxed gallery walls, which is nothing short of genius if you ask me - Hey remodo, I want one! 

Anyhow, I was most inspired by the B&W II Pillows and knew they would do the job, and then some. I love the subtle print with the classic color scheme especially paired with our bold throw. One project down, only {what seems like} 100 more.
