Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you are all having a great morning, and have some exciting plans for tonight. I have such a fun post for you guys today because I partnered with JORD Wood Watches to create a super cute look for spring!

I was so excited to receive my gorgeous Reece zeebrawood and emerald watch the other day. Those of you who have been following me for a little while, will remember I also partnered with JORD back in November, so when I was asked again, I was so excited. I love how unique the JORD watches are, and they are such a great transition accessory for spring. The emerald face of this watch reminded me of all the gorgeous leaves that will be making an appearance soon, and the light colored wood is the perfect look for spring. I always love to bring my bright and fun accessories out for spring to add a pop to any outfit. Not only are JORD watches gorgeous, but the packaging they come in is just as gorgeous! I always love to keep the boxes on display, haha!

The best part is that there is also a contest that you all can enter by clicking HERE. Everyone that enters will be eligible to win a $100 e gift code to use towards a watch! There will only be one lucky winner of the $100 e gift code; however, everyone that enters will receive a $25 e gift code once the contest is over, so make sure to take advantage of it!

Now, let’s talk about my outfit. My favorite transition tops have definitely been off the shoulder tops. I am in love with the color and material of this top, and it’s a great piece to either dress up or down. As I’m sure you guys know, I love casual looks, so I stuck with a pair of skinny jeans. One of my other favorite transition pieces for the spring has been a pair of gorgeous heeled sandals. I am so in love with these, and I know they will go with any outfit this spring! To match my shoes I used this gorgeous bag, that is a perfect dupe for a Celine bag. What are your favorite transition pieces for the spring?! Thanks so much for reading!

Hey, everyone! How has your week been? Can you believe it’s already Wednesday?! This week is flying by. With the weather surprisingly warming up lately, I have found myself wearing so many dresses, and to be honest, I don’t hate it. For so many years dresses were my worst enemy, as I just couldn’t get myself to like them, but I can tell that is all going to change this year. I already know dresses are going to be my go-to this spring/summer, and I’m actually super excited to pick out some new ones.

As it is still a little chilly, knit dresses have been perfect lately, and I’ve been loving this one so much! Honestly, I bought this dress a year ago and never wore it until now. I’m starting to think I was crazy for never wearing it because it is SO comfortable. I wanted to go for a really laid back/casual outfit for this look so I paired the dress with my favorite denim jacket (if you don’t own a denim jacket yet, get one. Now. haha) my multi print purse, and the finishing touch was my fave new Adidas sneakers that I swear magically match every outfit. They were such a great purchase, and I highly recommend investing in a pair. You will not be disappointed! Let me know what your most recent go-to clothing item has been!

Hi, everyone! How is your Monday going so far? I finished my final essay for one of my classes last night, so I am celebrating today by relaxing all morning, woohoo! The other day was 61 degrees, which is VERY warm for this time of the year, so it was a perfect day to get outside and take some blog pictures, and boy did I take a lot!

For today’s outfit, I embraced the warm weather with a light button down shirt, which is probably one of the most comfortable tops I’ve ever worn. The fabric is so soft, it feels like I’m not even wearing anything. I also found these amazing high heel OTK boots at Marshalls on clearance the other day for under $30! What a steal, right?! Not to mention they look exactly like the Stuart Weitzman boots, and I didn’t have to break the bank to buy them. I wanted to go for a super casual spring look so I finished the look with a pair of denim skinny jeans and a multi print purse. I really loved how casual this look was, but the heels dress it up just a bit. I also think this look would be very cute with some adidas sneakers if you wanted to go for an even more casual look!

Hi, everyone! I’m sorry for my absence lately. The weather here in New England has been pretty crazy, as it likes to dump as much snow on us as possible once February rolls around, haha. There were so many outfits I wanted to get up this week, but taking pictures in blizzard conditions wasn’t ideal. I can promise lots of outfits for next week, though!

Today, I wanted to show you my most recent go-to outfit. You know when you put an outfit together, and you end up liking it some much that you wear it for a few days straight? No? Just me? Well this is mine, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys! I found these adorable OTK boots on clearance for under $30 at Marshalls the other day and immediately bought them. I knew right away I wanted to pair them with a sweater dress, and I always love navy blue and brown together. I especially love the lace up detailing on this dress! Because it’s still chilly out, I added a denim jacket. To finish the look I wore my favorite new hat (that I have been wearing with everything) and a super cute purse that I also got on clearance at Marshalls for $8! Are you guys as excited for spring as I am?! This outfit makes me so excited for warm weather. Which was your favorite piece out of this look? Thanks so much for reading!

Hi, everyone and happy Friday!! I am super excited to share my Mexico trip photos with you all, and I have to say, putting this post together really made me miss being there. It is always so hard to transition back into reality after a vacation. It’s especially hard when you come home to a snowstorm, haha!

To be honest, there were a lot more outfits I had brought with me, and really wanted to wear and post, but 4 days is just not enough time to wear all of the clothes I brought (sigh). I wanted to keep my looks super beachy, so I opted for a lot of floral prints or blue. I have to admit my dress from Shein, which is shown in the first picture, is definitely my favorite item I brought with me. It was so perfect to throw over a bathing suit, or wear to dinner. Another staple was my hat, of course. It went with almost everything I wore, and it kept my face out of the sun, which was definitely needed on the last day due to a bad burn! For those of you wondering, we stayed at the Paradisus in Cancun, and it was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone! I hope these pictures are able to bring you a little warmth on this freezing winter day! Which was your favorite outfit? Thanks so much for reading!

Hi, everyone! I hope you are all having a great Wednesday so far! I just returned from Mexico last night, so I have to admit, I am pretty bummed to be back to snow but the trip was amazing and it was a great break from winter. Also, yes, that does  mean I have a fun Mexico blog post coming soon, which I am really looking forward to posting! I actually meant to post this outfit last Friday, but I forgot my laptop, and was unable to post since I had no service. I am sorry for the delayed post!

My outfit for today is still winter related but super cozy and great for an everyday look. I have been so crazy about knit sweaters this fall/winter. I honestly have started a collection of them, and they seem to be taking over my closet, haha! This burnt orange one is from Forever 21, and the material is so thick that it’s great for those extra cold winter days. As for my hat, I purchased this one at Target the other day for my trip, but I honestly have been wearing it all the time! I had been on the search for the perfect hat for the longest time, so I was so happy when I found this one. I honestly think a cute hat can make such a difference and really help transform an outfit, and make it look more complete. What is your favorite type of accessory to wear with outfits?! Thanks so much for reading!

Hi, everyone! Can you believe we are halfway through the week already?! Time is seriously flying by, but I can’t say I am sad because that means spring will be here so soon! Today’s look is totally inspired by spring, and yes, I did freeze while taking these pictures, but it was totally worth it because I cannot wait for spring outfits!

I purchased this adorable chambray shirt while I was up north, and I seriously love nothing more than chambray and white together. I went for more of an off-white cardigan because I didn’t want to much white-on-white action happening, haha! I was going to be walking around a lot this day, so I opted for some comfy flats (which I later changed because I thought my toes were going to fall off). I also wore my fave new bag I got from G.H Bass that I also purchased while I was up north. This bag is seriously a great dupe for the Chloe Hudson bag. You guys, what’s up with me finding great Chloe dupes lately?! You can see my previous post for a great dupe on the Chloe Faye bag too. Well, I hope you all have a great wednesday, and I will talk to you again on Friday. Thanks for reading!

Hi, everyone! So, you may notice something a little different about these pictures, and yes, I am finally in public! I promised myself I would start taking blogging more seriously this year, and push myself, and my first step was to take pictures in public. For those of you who don’t know, I suffer from anxiety, so something as simple as taking pictures in public can turn into a huge deal for me, but I am glad to say I have finally overcome this, and I am SO excited to have different backgrounds in my pictures other than just my yard, haha! Let me know if you guys have the same fear too, and we can all get through it together!

Now that I have gotten that off my chest, it’s time to talk about my outfit! For this “new beginning” I wanted to share an outfit that is very me, so very comfy and casual. I found this adorable cold shoulder sweater on sale at Forever 21 the other day, and I couldn’t help but buy it. I paired it with a pair of multicolor jeans. I purchased these at Target recently, and thought they were so unique with the darker wash knee details. For shoes I wore a pair of super cute espadrille sneakers. I decided to wrap up the look with even more pink and wear my faux suede bag from Missguided. This could also make for a really cute/super casual Valentine’s Day look as well! I hope you all have an awesome Monday!

Hello, everyone! I’m sorry for my lack of posts lately, my photographer, a.k.a my boyfriend (haha) had been sick all week, so we weren’t able to get any pictures done. I am now back and so happy to blog again!

I am SO excited to talk about this coat today. It is definitely my new favorite purchase, and I love how it makes an outfit look so much more put together. The faux fur keeps me so warm, and I am absolutely in love with the camel color. As someone who wears mostly neutrals, this coat will go with so much. The best part is that this coat is only $50! It’s super affordable, and if you’re not into the faux fur look, the good news is that you can take it off. I loved styling this coat with one of my favorite new sweaters (that was only $13!) and will also be on my blog soon!

My mom, aunt, grandma & I traveled up north yesterday to start a fantastic girls week, and this was the perfect casual/comfy travel outfit. I hope you all have an amazing monday!

Hi, everyone! So I’m sure you can tell, but today I decided to post about something a little different. I usually don’t post about decorating, but it does happen to be something I LOVE doing, so I figured I would write about it and maybe give you guys some inspiration for your next party!

The other day was my mom’s birthday, and as we both love to decorate, it gave us the perfect excuse to go all out. My mom loves anything pink, sparkly, and girly, so we tried to incorporate all three into the “theme”. For the table cloth, my mom opted for a “greige” color with a lace runner. To add a pop of color, she chose pink napkins and silver decorative plates. Due to my love for silver, gold, and pink together, I found the most adorable party hats at Tj Maxx to add on top. I also found the Happy Birthday sign at Tj Maxx that I hung from the window behind our dinner table. To add a little more frill, I also hung up a ribbon garland that I made myself. You can actually see how I made it on my YouTube channel under DIY spring room decor. My mom received a ton of flowers, so we put them to good use and made them into gorgeous decorations to add to the table along with some silver and gold candle holders. Lastly, it wouldn’t be a birthday without dessert! I made some vanilla cupcakes with strawberry buttercream frosting and added them to this adorable pink and gold cupcake stand (also from Tj Maxx).

I have to say, I think this birthday was one for the books, and it was great to see my mom have such an awesome time. I hope you guys enjoyed this type of post, and let me know if you’d like to see more of these in the future!
