top 3 summer essentials

This summer has been HOT (climate change crisis, anyone?) and I’ve been wearing a couple of things non-stop–partially because my brain shuts down and just gravitates towards what it knows when it’s too hot to think, and partially because I’ve simply fallen in love with these pieces. Keep reading to learn more about these key summer pieces from Balenciaga, Castañer, and Madewell!

i love basic mall brands

I recently read a piece in the Atlantic called Ann Taylor and the Case for Boring Office Clothes and it got me thinking about how I still love basic mall brands of the Ann Taylor variety. If you peeked into my wardrobe, about 80% of my clothing comes from a store or brand you’d typically find at a mid-tier mall. I grew up in a mall town–King of Prussia–and shopping at mall brands has been a part of me ever since, even as I shop all the new and amazing brands crushing it in the boutique and e-commerce scene. For work clothing especially, I frequently shop Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, LOFT, and J.Crew.

pleated midi skirts

Since I’m a petite gal, I usually wear shorter skirts to play with my proportions — the more of my legs your can see, the taller I’m supposed to look. Recently, I’ve opened up my wardrobe to longer skirts and more specifically discovered a love for pleated midi skirts. I’m 4’9” so most midi skirts, petite sizing or not, are pretty full-length on me, but I still love how feminine and flowy they feel. Even though being a woman was terrible back in the day (and sometimes still is) I do fantasize about the days when women wore long skirts all the time. I think pleated midi skirts get me pretty close to that fantasy without looking like a Game of Thrones extra.

valentine's day gift guide 2018

Excuse this super late 'first post of 2018,' but I've had a pretty lackluster start to 2018. While I had a lovely holiday season with my family, 2018 has been pretty meh so far. I think the high point so far this year was my 4th anniversary with Gerome (love you babe) but other than that, work has been super stressful, my sister currently has the flu, and adulting has just been feeling overwhelming all around. Of course, one thing that always cheers me up is online shopping (or just browsing lol)! Gerome and I aren't doing gifts for this Valentine's Day but through all my online browsing, I've come up with a couple of ideas for gifts you can give your special someone this Valentine's Day - whether they're your significant other or just someone you want to make feel loved. As with all my gift guides, you can also use this as a way to #treatyoself - you deserve it girl, especially if you've had a blah start to the year like I have. Happy Valentine's shopping! 💘

wooden watches by jord

There’s nothing more timeless than a watch. These days, we’re always grasping for our phones to check the time, when it could be as simple as checking a beautiful and practical accessory on your wrist. Personally, I’m a watch person and don’t really switch watches ever - I find comfort in wearing the same pieces of jewelry every day. However, I did add a new watch to my collection recently - and it's a wooden watch - from the brand Jord. Keep reading to find out more about Jord and what I think about their wooden watches.

off the shoulder obsession

No matter how hard I try, I can't get over off-the-shoulder tops. During spring, I especially like wearing long-sleeve off-the-shoulder tops since they keep most of you warm but still let you feel the sun. This post showcases one of my recent favorite outfits, with the highlight piece being one of my new off-the-shoulder tops. Keep reading until the end for my full outfit detail links and some other off-the-shoulder tops I'm loving for spring and summer!
