Quick Trip to Naples, Florida

Last weekend my mom and I made the short flight down to meet up with some family in Naples, Florida. It was the perfect time to get away and get some much needed Vitamin D!

We spent a majority of our time on the beach but were also able to squeeze in some shopping and eat some delicious meals out! What more could you ask for??

One of the trends I have been noticing as spring nears, is the addition of bright and colorful stripes to tops and accessories. I ended up purchasing a fun, striped top while on this trip which made me look more into some other pieces to have for this upcoming transition from cold to warmer temps

Swim Too Deep Sweater

I love all the black in this outfit and feel like it creates a timeless look with the aviators added as well! I really have been living in these boots but am also trying to balance the amount of times I wear them so I don't get tired of this shoe. I can't recommend them enough! At the bottom of the page I linked some Stuart Weitzman OTK boots too because on Nordstrom they are 50% off - amazing!

Have a great rest of the week! Thanks for reading!

Favorite Winter Purchases [So Far...] & other things

This is hands down the best make up remover I have yet to try. I got it as a sample in one of those little sample kits that Clinique gives out and immediately bought the bigger tub of this cleansing balm. With this as your make up remover, you don't have to deal with wipes or cotton balls and just simply rub it onto your dry face and step in the shower. It's so easy and doesn't dry out your face in this winter weather! 
To say I live in this bathrobe would be an understatement. It is so so cozy I throw it on over anything when I am at my house. The robe is also pretty light so it keeps you warm without feeling suffocated.
I'm such a fan of these over the knee boots for 2 main reasons; 1 because they are fitted and make your legs look long and 2 because they actually stay up and you don't spend your whole day pulling the boots back over your knees. Aside from those two things they are also comfortable and very on trend right now however, I would still consider this style a staple that you can wear for years.
I had known about the PMD for a while thanks to Cara Loren and had seen this video about the tool so when I finally got one per the recommendation of a friend, I quickly noticed results and now use it weekly. The PMD "is designed to replicate the treatment given by professionals using the same aluminum-oxide crystals on patented spinning discs that work by gently pulling at skin with a vacuum-action that promotes exfoliation while removing dead skin cells and revealing healthy, clear skin." What more could you want?

Each winter I am always on the hunt for a really good sweater. This Free People one was just that, it's warm, not scratchy and has a unique cut and neck that makes it different from most other sweaters hanging in my closet.
(Also comes in 5 other colors!)

Inslee by Design 2018 CLASSIC CALENDAR
This is hands down the cutest calendar I have ever had sitting on my desk. Each flip to a new month is another beautifully decorated, chicly designed page. I'm so obsessed with it and am going to make it a new yearly buy!

I always think its so interesting to see who follows along to what bloggers so here are my top five that I look most forward to each day:
Atlantic-Pacific - Blair is one of the most fashionable people on this planet and does such a neat job mixing unexpected pieces together. I also love how she will wear an evening gown in the middle of Brooklyn and make it look effortless.
Pink Peonies - Rachel Parcell has great style that I look for each morning but her new house build and interior design from her last house is what dreams are made of. Her sister Emily also has a blog that I enjoy as well and new born twins.
Chronicles of Frivolity _ I came across Katey's blog when I was in Fort Worth, looking online for local's suggestions on where to eat. I looove Katey's style and feel like I would happily wear anything she wears because she incorporates pops of color, very feminine pieces and fun prints.
Krystal - Krystal always sticks to basic black and white pieces but somehow keeps each outfit new and different. Aside from her style, she lives in Dallas and travels to Europe frequently so basically lives the dream.
The Fashion Guitar - Charlotte is originally from the Netherlands buy now lives in NYC. Her children run around in gucci and she does amazing campaigns for companies like Chanel in Paris or for Jimmy Choo in the Swiss Alps.

Pearl Studded Sweater

Happy 2018! 
For the first post of the year I wanted to share this fun, pearly sweater top from my favorite, Zara. The top itself is super soft and the pearls add a trendy touch and make it versatile to dress your look up or keeping it casual.

I added my favorite Alice and Olivia sunglasses because they mimicked the circles of the pearls and used these BaubleBar earrings to round out the look (no pun intended).

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Pink on Pink

Hope you had a great Christmas and are ready for a fabulous New Year!
This pink coat was a Christmas gift and I just love it! Unlike some wool coats, this one is wool but also so soft and not scratchy at all which is a bonus in my book along side  the bright, vibrant pink color of the coat that drew my attention to it in the first place. 
These sunglasses are also a fun, pink accessory that have been on constant rotation in my closet. They have a bit of a 70's vibe but overall I still consider them a timeless piece that I can count on to make a statement each time I wear them.
Enjoy these last few days of December and be on the look out for some more outfits to come at the start of the New Year!

Bell Sleeved Sweater

I wanted to stop by and share this favorite BP Sweater of mine for the season. The color and bell sleeves make a subtle statement when paired together and it's the perfect go to for any fall day. BP in general, which is a Nordstrom line, has so many trendy and inexpensive pieces for each season. I love buying an item or two from the label as a season rolls over.
These boots are another staple for a fall wardrobe. I had a hard time finding this exact pair but I like how durable they feel when I wear them through drizzles, mud or even the occasional snow. 

Enjoy the rest of this week before Thanksgiving!!

Cozy Green Cardigan

As you can tell I am big on the green hues and my tan knee high beets this fall. I have always been a fan of green so when I saw this cardigan on instagram I had to locate it and purchase it. I will say the only bummer about this otherwise perfect sweater is that it has no pockets...
Free People has the best collection of chunky knits and oversized sweaters for entering this fall season here. While some of their items are too funky for my style, I can usually find dozens of pieces I love while shopping online HERE
These leggings are great as well and from JCrew. They have enough weight to feel like you are wearing pants and not just workout leggings and also are just as comfortable as wearing regular leggings but have a dressier look and a zipper in the back.
