Big fan of the toothpick silhouette.
That color purple is pretty awesome too.

02  //  J.Crew Necklace
Very fond of this blue color.

Discovered this color-blocked clutch this week...
the best part is that it is super affordable.

These champagne flutes are perfect for 
the upcoming holiday season.

Love the color palette.

Since I have jumped into the corporate world as a graphic designer...I sometimes feel that 
I am losing my own style. At work I am looking through a brand filter all day long and often 
feel the need to want to explore different colors, shapes and fonts. Originally, that is why I 
started this give myself a place to create whatever was inspiring at the moment. 
I think due to lack of free time to really explore, I lost my intentions. 

With that said, I am going to try and create something once a week and post it here. 
Let's see how it goes...

Looking forward towards a shift in the weather and the chance switch up the wardrobe. 
In effort to try and shop smarter, I put together a mood board to focus on the key pieces 
I am missing from my closet.

02  //  Leather jacket

03  //  Glitzy jewels with simple tees

04  //  Sweaters and maxi skirts

05  //  Sexy heels with front-tucked button downs

06  //  Coated denim with simple layering

As we have been trying to define the style of our home, I have been leaning towards
 with neutral basics and pops of color brought in by accessories. This home makes me
want to hop in car and grab a bucket of yellow paint...always fond of an accent wall.

I love the backyard and the use of circles throughout the home.

Here's to relaxing and getting some things done off the to-do list.

Happy weekend!

A beautiful dose of colorful inspiration by Dutch designer John Breed. 
145 shoes + legs were used in this installation for Breuninger Shoe Store in Germany.

Breed based the leggy rainbow off the concept of …
'the madness of women about buying shoes. Like in real life, when a lady returns home 
after another shoe shopping session and one asks, "Doesn't she already have a pair like this?'"

I can relate.

See all images here


Been having a major crush on this cabernet color, which is strange because 
I have never really cared for it much before. I will definitely 
be sprinkling it into my fall wardrobe.

Spent tonight trying to get caught up with New York Fashion Week. 
Here is a little taste of what I'm loving for far!

Bold graphic prints  |  dress/skirt + booties 

Glittery gowns | Color palette 

This designer is new to me. Loved the short + sweater combinations.

Neutral | Silhouettes | Shoes

Obsessed with this color palette | Spotty dotty | Shoes

Sequins | Silhouettes | Feminine | Color palette | Fun + playful

I will always have a soft spot for Jenny Packham because 
she is the designer of my wedding dress.

The black + white polka dotted one is amazing.

My search for the perfect gold strappy sandal continues. I would have never imagined 
that it would be so challenging. Obviously the Jimmy Choo's are perfection, 
but $$$...maybe one day.
