The Finishing Touch…

Sunglasses are a funny thing. They’re oftentimes the last thing on our minds, yet one of the most important elements of our look/outfit. I personally tend to forget about them… and I have funny rules about them (for example, if I’m wearing my hair curly/natural, I refuse to wear sunglasses because I think it looks too busy. I know. I’m a lunatic.) The thing is, this time of year, eyewear is particularly important…

Winter Florals.

This dress. My friend Stacy suggested it and I thought it was pretty but wasn’t totally sold on it until I tried it on and fell in love with the cut.

Fashion Week x Three.

In preparation for fashion week, T.J. Maxx + Marshalls challenged me to put together three outfits with a $500 budget. I was a little nervous, as the budget was meant to cover everything – shoes, bag, accessories, and so on! I ended up being surprised by how easy the challenge actually was. I place a lot of importance on having quality accessories…
