Stealing Olivia’s Look 
I love everything about Olivia’s look in this picture. She takes a simple grey sweater and completely dresses it up. 
After seeing this picture of OP I immediately went out in search of a cute grey sweater/sweatshirt and some fun skirts to complete my own version of her look.

The Simple Life 

Glancing out of my apartment you’d think it was the dead of winter. Three inches of snow on the ground and people bundled head to toe. PLUS, the 7-day weather forecast says this weather is here to stay.

This is always the time of year where everyday is a challenge to get dressed. All of my new spring clothes just won’t cut it for this kind of weather. 

My solution to this fashion dilemma is simple - back to basics I go. 

Here are a few outfits that are great for this transition period - comfortable and cozy, yet still very stylish!

Ready for some sun 

Even though the holidays are over it seems like winter has just begun! With my birthday around the corner I’ve decided to treat myself to a little vaca in Florida and let my ghostly skin see some sun! 

One thing I love to do when planning a trip is making a wish list of all the new things I must buy to take with me. Here is my list for Florida!

Golden Globes best dressed: It was all about the red and white 

Award season is upon us! As much as I enjoy watching some of my favorite actors mingle, drink, and win awards, what I really enjoy is the red carpet. Just like any award show, we all saw some good, some bad, and some very, very ugly. I personally like to focus on the POSITIVE. So… with that being said, here a few of my favorites from last night! 

THE BAG

So many new bags are taking over my favorite stores! Here are a few I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection :)

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths       Walt Disney 

The Statement Necklace

Statement jewelry is everywhere right now. I love a big statement necklace - it can really make an entire outfit! Here are a few statement necklaces I love!

Lindsi In the Fast Lane Alberto Fermani giveaway:


I’m usually not one to get all crazy about giveaways because I never, I mean NEVER, win them, but I follow this fashion stylist/blogger Lindsi Lane (FOLLOW HER http://lindsiinthefastlane.com ) who was having this Instagram giveaway and I thought I’d give it a shot. To my surprise I received an Instagram message from Lindsi Lane herself telling me I had won! She informed me that I got to pick any pair of boots from Alberto Fermani’s website. This sounded AMAZING, but once I started looking through the Alberto Fermani website I realized this maybe wasn’t so amazing. I wanted every single pair of boots! With over 100 pairs to choose from it took me 2 days to settle on the perfect pair. A few days ago they arrived and I LOVE them!
