Ah, summer- escaping us so quickly! It really is true what they say, time flies after you’re all finished with school and settled in at your job. With the blink of an eye, it is the end of August and soon, I will be wasting away in school traffic. Needless to say, I am not ready to transition into fall! Despite the cooler, more comfortable weather and salted caramel mochas to come, I am not looking forward to the darkness! Anyways, I’m going to try my best to squeeze in a couple more summer looks before I pull out my fall layers and booties. Today, I wanted to bring to you my easiest and most comfortable summer throw on and go outfit – the floral jumpsuit.
Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a fun, casual weekend look. It’ll be short and sweet today. I absolutely love this lemon top and wish I could wear it more, but unfortunately the cold shoulder isn’t work appropriate! This past Saturday, I wore this outfit to a blogger social at Kendra Scott and it was so much fun! I love connecting with new bloggers in the surrounding area. Can’t wait to attend more of these!
Today I wanted to post about something a little different from beauty or fashion- something that brings positivity to my world! Positive thinking helps us be healthier, more productive, and ultimately happier. There are too many negative things and people out there in the world today that we beat ourselves up about. I’m trying to focus on things that bring joy to my life, rather than sulking at minor annoyances. Below are 8 things that lift my mood despite all the negativity surrounding me. #ThePositivityProject
It’s been a crazy couple of months between work and my puppy, Sonia, which is why I’ve been MIA. With long commutes to work and taking care of Sonia, I’ve had very little time for myself and this blog. I’m slowly trying to get back into things though! I even joined a gym! Mike has also been very busy with just having graduated law school and studying for the Bar exam. In a couple of days, he will be done with it all and help me shoot more blog content! Today, I wanted to share with you an idea that I’ve been wanting to blog about for some time: how to build a capsule wardrobe. It’s minimalist, perfect for trips, and essential for work. This post would be great for those rebuilding their work attire, heading to college, or just looking to downsize. Who is guilty of having a heaping amount of unworn clothing in their closet? I know I am. This post is geared more towards a business-casual or neutrals type of gal. Trendy pieces are a whole different ball-game. Also, I incorporated some Nordstrom Anniversary sale pieces since it’s that time of the year. I know that everyone and their mother is blogging about the sale, so I hope this is still of interest to you. This is definitely my most thought-out post and I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Feel free to comment below!
Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post because I recently got a new pug puppy. If you know me, you know that I’ve been obsessed with pugs since I can remember. I’ve never had a dog before, so I definitely didn’t know it would be this much work. Sonia’s been keeping me very busy! She’s worth it though. Training is the next step!
Today I wanted to share a casual spring outfit with you guys. I’m hoping the embroidered trend never ends, because I’m tempted to buy more and more of this style. I purchased these Levi jeans after seeing them on literally every fashion blogger on Instagram. Let me tell you..they are not for petite women. I found they are longer than most regular fitting jeans..so I can’t wear them without rolling them up a few times, which is a bummer. I absolutely love the style of these jeans, so I kept them anyway. I paired this outfit with my embroidered pumps I got from DSW last summer. They’re so fun and chic! Check out the full look below and let me know what you think!
Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share an outfit that I thought was perfect for transitioning into spring. I wasn’t quite ready to put away my OTK boots, so I incorporated them into this outfit. This is such a quick, comfy look that its been on heavy rotation for me! Also, Mike and I drove past the perfect wall art in Fishtown so you know I had to take advantage of it. This art got me so excited and I cannot wait until the weather gets warmer for better and more colorful photoshoots! Check out my mini shoot in this outfit below. I’ve linked everything (including very affordable dupes). Hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to subscribe, share with a friend, or comment your thoughts below!
Hi everybody! I hope everyone’s feeling better after their St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans! The city was insane this weekend and I was of course happy to be away from it all. It was my boyfriend’s birthday weekend and we decided it was best to stay in our hood to celebrate. Today, I wanted to share 2 trends that I’m absolutely loving and haven’t had a chance to rave about: Plaid blazers and embroidered jeans. I love em both, so I combined them!
Why do job interviews make us feel really nervous, even if we know we’d be great for the job? Nothing makes me more uncomfortable in life than interviewing for a job. As much as I prepare for an interview in advance, I never seem to feel confident. Often times, the mere thought of being on the answer end of an interview question makes our nerves run wild. This is because it can be hard to remain genuine while talking yourself up for hours. It’s important to keep in mind that your employer is judging your personality in addition to your qualifications. I just recently interviewed for a great position in Pharma (and landed it!) so these tips are still fresh in my mind to share with you all. I hope that you find this helpful!
Hi everybody! I hope everyone’s having an awesome week so far. I’m currently enjoying this snow day from work with a cup of tea in hand, Netflix playing in the background wearing my coziest jammies. Could this be my morning every day? Now that we’re transitioning into spring (sort-of?), I thought I’d share an outfit that I’ve been wanting to blog about for the longest time: the modernized denim overall dress.
Hello all! I hope everyone in Philly is enjoying the warm weather we’ve been having! Don’t get used to it though, it’ll go back to freezing temperatures in no time! Since I’ve mentioned owning essential pieces in a lot of my blog posts, I wanted to share a must-have accessory for this spring: A JORD watch.
Curly-haired girls–listen up. Does it ever bother you thinking about how much simpler life would be if you just had hair that would cooperate? Yeah, same. I struggle having good hair days during the work week because of how little time I have in the morning to get ready.
Hey everybody! I hope everyone had a happy Tuesday. We’re only 3 days away from Friday, we can do this gang! One of my new year’s resolutions was to try and be more positive during the work week. It’s been hard, but at least I have a happy place to come home to at the end of the day. Things that make me happy during the week: my boyfriend, dinner, and watching a couple episodes of a good Netflix show under my cozy blanket. It doesn’t take much to make me happy! I was thinking about also making a blog post on improving productivity in both my personal and professional life.
Happy Monday everybody! The Philadelphia Eagles did the unthinkable and won the Super Bowl! WOO! I was out there on broad street last night with the crowd and it was an insane experience! I don’t think I’ve ever seen Philadelphians so friendly! All that said, today I wanted to share an outfit that I’ve been meaning to post for two weeks now, but had so many distractions come up along the way that I could not find a moment to actually sit down and write this. So I hope you all like it!
Hey guys! How’s everyone doing on this windy Thursday afternoon? Today I wanted to share a new favorite outfit of mine featuring my new pair of distressed high-waisted boyfriend jeans. I was very against this trend for a long time because I always preferred tight skinny jeans. I also felt that this style only looked good on taller women. I was surprised to find a pair of petite loose fit boyfriend jeans that fit perfectly. I love that these can be dressed up, or down and look vogue AF with a pair of heels (or booties). I definitely fit in with my hipster neighborhood (Fishtown). FYI, I’m linking all outfit details at the very bottom of the post.
Hi everybody! Today I’m sharing a casual, every day outfit featuring my Banana Republic faux fur vest. I LOVE this vest because it can be worn so many different ways (and now I’m thinking I should have done a 3 looks 1 vest post—perhaps another time)!
Now I’m not a beauty expert by any means, BUT my best friend and I have been obsessed with makeup since before we could even properly apply it. We watch endless YouTube and Instagram videos of our favorite makeup artists, jot down products that they use, and from there it all comes down to trial and error until I find products that fit my preferences.
