{ Dare To Wear } Three Ways To Style A Jean Jacket

Jean jackets go with springtime like marshmallows go with chocolate and graham crackers. Over the last few weeks I’ve grown quite fond of the powers a denim jacket possesses. It has a way of making each look feel a little more lived in and comfortable. It also looks pretty darn cute with a brooch or scarf or both. Oh and as for the sleeves, I prefer a messy roll so that bracelets can parade freely. Continue Reading

{ Local Love } Evil Eye Bracelets by Moira Anne Artisan

I spy with my little eye… more eyes! Evil eyes, to be exact.

One of the perks of being a blogger/reporter/stylist is discovering cool stuff — whether it’s charms for your hair, a new diffusion line, or in this case, a boho-chic jewelry brand with style and meaning. I recently found out about a fabulous local line Moira Anne Artisan by Moira Rubino, and since receiving a couple bracelets they haven’t left my wrist (except for showering). They’ve also been snagging SO MANY compliments so I thought I better give this girl a shoutout and tell you a little more about her good-vibes line.  Continue Reading

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Charms For Your Hair

There’s a cool hair accessory that I’ve had my eye on for a little while and now is the perfect time to talk about them because they’re great for concert festivals, prom, team spirit, or any special occasion. Charmsies is the name and they’re little tiny charms that iron onto hair. They were also just featured in the new “Cinderella” movie.  Both the Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Charter) and Cinderella (Lily James) donned Charmsies. So pretty! Continue Reading


{ Speed Routine }  Five Things I Do To Get Ready Fast

I can get ready pretty quick. A speedy shower (though I prefer long and leisurely ones) followed by a pinch of makeup, and I’m out the door. Perhaps I have it down to a fast formula because I love to procrastinate and wait until the last possible moment to start getting ready, or maybe it’s because I’ve always opted to hit the snooze again, and again. Either way, having a fast-paced primping plan in my arsenal has always come in handy.

Here are five tricks to how I get ready quick. Continue Reading

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Jump(suit) Into Spring

This week’s trend is one that’s great for this transitional season. It’s also versatile and works on various ages, body types, and styles. As the title told you, it’s all about jumpsuits.

Wear casual and cool, JLo did just a few days ago in a one-piece jean ensemble. Or opt for a jumpsuit for when you’re feeling fancy. During award-show season Gwen Stefani rocked a jumpsuit at the Grammys while Emma Stone dawned her pretty-pant look at the Golden Globes.  Other celebs recently spotted wearing this trend include Jada Pinkett Smith, Porta Di Rossi, and Kim Kardashian West.

{ Cinderella Chic } Fairytale Fashion For Real Life

One question I get a lot is what brands do I love/where I do shop. The answer is always the same yet different. It starts with “everywhere” and ends with a different list of favorites — depending on mood, moment and memory, of course. This post is not going to list out my favorite brands and shops (though I will add that to my idea notebook). No, instead it’s a roundup of pretty things from a line I tend to have very good luck with, LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s. The designs are really cute, fit my style and body, and then there’s also the fact that Kohl’s is almost never not running some sort of sale.

This time she’s taking a whimsical approach with inspiration from a certain well-known story, Cinderella. Here’s how to do fairytale fashion in real life.  Below are three looks along with my take on wear to where & why I love it.
