2014 || Travel Highlights

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

There are so many amazing things I could recap about 2014 that it would become an entire blog in itself. Life changes at the blink of an eye, and this past year was no exception to the fact. To keep things brief, I decided to focus on one major highlight of my year -- travel.

Having the opportunity to travel is something that I will always appreciate. It changes you in a way that nothing else can. Whether being a drive or a flight's distance away, each place I was able to visit has affected me for the best. Read more to follow me on my 2014 travel journey:

ThirdLove Review || Lingerie with Comfort & Style

Friday, October 17, 2014

Style doesn't have to end with your lingerie. I often find that the most difficult part of bra shopping is finding a piece that looks and feels good, unless I'm spending a fortune on it. While they're not the cheapest, ThirdLove bras offer both quality and style at your typical mall store prices ($39 for this one). This particular piece is perfect for those casual, cozy days with its ultra soft fabric and lack of heavy padding. Throw it under your favorite t-shirt, and you're guaranteed comfort for the entire day.

Check out ThirdLove's site here to find the perfect lingerie set for you! Which is your favorite?

Little Black Dress: Day to Night

Sunday, September 28, 2014

There is nothing more classic than a little black dress. In terms of versatility, it takes the gold medal. Especially as a commuter, I value clothing that can be easily taken from day to night. Today's post provides two ideas for dressing up (and down) one of my favorite LBD's for the early fall season. With the addition of simple accessories, a black dress can go anywhere, anytime.

Hello Autumn || Video Lookbook

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Early fall is both a blessing and a burden for the style-conscious. As much as I love bringing out my sweaters and jackets, the days of early autumn are often the most confusing in terms of dressing for the weather. Especially as a commuter, I can experience a temperature shift of 30 degrees in the span of one  day. For those of you who can relate, here are four outfit ideas to help you combat the bipolar nature of fall weather. Let me know which is your favorite and what you'll be wearing for the new season. I'll be back tomorrow with another outfit post!

New Season, New Specs || Warby Parker Fall '14

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

If you've been following me on Instagram, you'll know that I've recently gained the confidence to wear my glasses in public thanks to Warby Parker. This company stands for quality and style without breaking the bank. I was first introduced to Warby Parker as a freshman in college when a Retail Experience Manager visited my club to discuss how the company has taken over the digital shopping world. Since then, I've been hooked.

Today I am very excited to help Warby Parker announce their Fall 2014 collection, which is all about personality. It's for those "who own their style, exercise their wit, and add life to the party." What better way to make a statement than with a trendy pair of specs? Click "Read More" to check out my favorite pieces from the collection:
