Hats off To Fringes


Anthropologie HD in Paris Maxi Dress (similar here and here), Givenchy Sunglasses, Urban Expressions Arizona Bucket Bag, Pave Moondrop Pendant Necklace, Wool Hat (I purchased mine from a boutique but you can find a similar one here.), BCBG Cutout Cuff (similar here), Sam Edelman Gigi T-Strap Sandals

I prefer something lightweight and airy on humid summer days and this maxi dress [Read more…]

fits the bill perfectly. The print keeps the dress from looking like a night gown and too casual. I purchased this black hat and fringed bucket bag around the same time and have been loving the combo together. It makes any outfit look more put together and ‘boho chic’.



My Favorite Things at Trader Joe’s


I live about a block away from Trader Joe’s and find myself there several times a week. I’ve thought about on more than one occasion what I would need to stock up on if we were to move. Aside from the affordable selection of fresh flowers, wine, cheese, and organic produce, I’ve tried just about everything that has caught my eye in this store and have narrowed down my top 17 [Read more…]

Trader Joe’s brand items. I’ve come to the realization while putting together this list that my most thorough taste testing has been in the chocolate department.

DIY: Marble TV Tray Upgrade


Despite the fact that I have a a fully functioning desk, I still find myself migrating to the coach in the evenings with my laptop perched up on my lap to hang out with Will. I thought it would be nice to have a folding TV tray to hold snacks, laptops, etc. that is easier to reach than our coffee table, a whole 2 feet away. I initially fell in love with with this [Read more…]

acrylic and gold one from CB2. I finally talked myself into the $149 price tag convincing myself that it was even pretty enough to leave out all the time. Then, I came across this super affordable one for less than $10. I prettied it up with some marble contact paper and it turned out great! I may still end up getting the one from CB2 one day, but maybe when I have one closer to me and I don’t have to pay another $20 in shipping and handling. For now I think this one will do just fine for what we need.
