i’m feelin’ TWENTY-TWO!


anyone else take their birthday very seriously? like i’m sorry, but today’s MY day. i only get it once a year, so you can bet i’m taking full advantage.

my tentative plans include: a yummy birthday breakfast at my favorite local diner, with get in a BOMB.COM back workout, throw in some productive school work/job searching, hopefully sushi for dinner & a few drinks out in my cute, new outfit with my friends!!

sounds like a pretty dang good day to me!

speaking of cute, new outfits, this little number has got to be one of my favorite pieces. i picked it up from beehive boutique (also one of my new favorite shops!) in fort worth a few weeks ago, and luckily it’s decently warm enough to get away with wearing it!

i threw on this white tee underneath (it’s still a bit chilly out), but i can’t wait to wear this in the spring with my espadrilles or platform sandals. for now i’ll stick with my trusty OTK boots..ugh i just love this look.

alright, so tell me how do you TREAT YO SELF on your birthday? any b-day traditions out there? lrt me know!!

all in the details + transforming simple looks

helllloooooo babes! so today was my last first day of classes. crazy. it’s a bittersweet feeling. on one hand, i’m so glad that i’m almost finished with school, but at the same time i’m so sad that this chapter of my life is coming to a close. luckily, this semester should be a piece of cake, which means good times are bound to be had! but enough about school, let’s chat about this look!

if someone asks me to describe my sense of style i always say something like “effortless” or “easy going,” which if you aren’t careful can turn into “boring.” and no one wants to dress boringly, am i right, ladies?

i’ve realized that the key to keeping this from happening is focusing all on the details. like these studded high rise jeans, or this pin striped cabby hat, or these fun chelsea boots. this look is simple in itself (basic tee, cardigan and booties), but all these details are what MAKE this look.

thank goodness my sister made me buy this hat. i’ve been talking about getting a cabby hat like this for forever but just haven’t bitten the bullet. i’m still a little unsure if i can pull it off…but i’m obsessed with it so WHO CARES?!

what’s your favorite way to elevate a look? share it with me in the comments!
