As I have sought to learn more about home decor and design I have recently fallen in love with all things Gracie Studio (based in NYC). I love a good wallpaper and the following pieces are BEAUTIFUL.
Happy Easter! I am spending the day celebrating and relaxing with my family.
I am currently trying to learn more about home design and decor so I am exploring all the major brands that carry home goods to see what I like and how these pieces can come together for a house one day.
Here are my current favorites from Horchow:
Happy Weekend! Enjoying a lazy and relaxing first weekend in April with my boyfriend and sweet puppy and trying to find some time to get back on the water and sail sometime soon.
Hope each of you are having a lovely weekend as well.
Hi lovely friends – Valentine’s Day is a month away today and there is still plenty of time to prepare if you celebrate the holiday but I thought I would pull together a list of my current favorite items that are pink, red or Valentine’s Day themed.
If you know me personally, you know that this is one of my favorite holidays, even if you are single it is a nice excuse to make the world a little more colorful and bright in the middle of winter…. plus I LOVE pink 🙂
Case Mate sells iPhone Cases that hold up incredibly well, are resistant to shock and are made with real materials like mother-of-pearl, rose gold, etc. I have two or three cases from Case Mate and I LOVE them. I just switched my phone to the Mother of Pearl Case below and it is gorgeous in person and really accentuates the rose gold color of my iPhone Plus.
I heard about Venus et Fleur from a friend and after browsing their website and Instagram I am really impressed. The roses supposedly last for a year and come in almost every color of the rainbow. I’m not entirely sure what they will be like in person but will keep you posted when I finally order them and try them for myself in the next few weeks. I am so excited!!
Finally, I’ll add that I am in the very beginning stages of purchasing some new pieces for my house and I have a color palette of cream and gold. I love the white marble and gold coffee table on this list as well.
Now that fall is officially here and North Carolina is experiencing colder weather I thought it might be nice to round up my list of my current favorite sweaters from J Crew and Nordstrom.
I’m thinking of ordering the Free People Turtleneck and the Tibbi Sweater in a few colors from J Crew, has anyone ever bought that particular sweater from J Crew and is it warm? I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you stay warm + cute in the fall and winter seasons, for me personally it involves an ever-changing assortment of pea coats and trench coats – I throw one on and always feel stylish and put together.
What are some of your cozy fall must-haves?

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!!
Popping in for a quick post before heading to dinner, I hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing and fun weekend with their friends and family. For this week’s “Weekend Wants,” I thought I would round up some of the best sales that are currently being offered today.
When I was growing up, one of my favorite activities with my mother was to shop all the holiday sales that stores offered, we had the BEST time and it was so fun to snag so many good deals. I credit my mother with both my eye for fashion and my ability to find a bargain.
Two – J Crew – 30 Percent Off $200+ and 25 Percent off $125+ – perhaps a good time to purchase a pea coat or winter outerwear item
Three- Banana Republic/Gap – 40 Percent Off Everything!
Four – Old Navy – 50 Percent off Dresses, Jeans and Tees
Five – Neiman Marcus – 65 Percent Off Women’s Summer Fashion
Six – Bauble Bar – 30 Percent Off Sale Items/Jewelry
Seven – Splendid – 25 Percent Off Everything w/ code WKND25
Hi, for this week’s “Weekend Wants” I have partnered with Tobi, an online-only e-commerce platform that sells dresses, shoes and women’s accessories. When I was approached by Tobi, I only knew a little bit about the company but after browsing their website I was impressed with the huge selection of clothing that they offered, specifically the number of dresses that were a reasonable price AND a cute style.
Tobi sent me three dresses to try and all of them were cute, fun and a great price.
Below you will find five of my current favorite dresses offered on Tobi’s website.
If any of you have shopped at Tobi before, let me know in the comments. I would love to know your thoughts about the company and if you had a good experience or not. One comment I will add is that Tobi’s dresses tend to run a little short, so it might be best to save them for a date night, party, or night out and leave them out of your office and work wardrobe.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far, xx
A huge thank you to the wonderful team at Tobi and Tobi for sponsoring this post
Hi there, I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. I have spent the weekend relaxing and catching up on some work, both professionally and personally.
I thought that for this week’s Weekend Wants it would be nice to have a round-up of six handbags that have just recently become available to purchase at Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter and Neiman Marcus. One of my favorite things to do each season is pick up one handbag that is my “go-to” all season long, and normally, I end up using the handbag year after year if it is a classic… for example: a classic Longchamp or a Louis Vuiton Neverfull.
For this season, I am thinking of purchasing a Chloé Marcie Bag. I love the shape of the bag and I love how timeless the design of the bag is.
What are your favorite fall handbags? What are your favorite classic handbags? Is there a purse that you find yourself using year after year?
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, whether that is shopping, traveling, sleeping or just relaxing.
I am a little late to the party as the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started a few days ago for Nordstrom Cardholders, but if you don’t have a Nordstrom Debit or Credit Card the Sale does not open up until this Friday the 22nd of July!

Happy Shopping!!

Happy July 4th Weekend! This post normally goes up on Friday mornings… but alas a busy day at the office and then travel plans prevented that. I’ll be spending the weekend sailing and drinking champagne with my better half and our families.
These are my favorite white dresses from Nordstrom, I especially like the long Free People Maxi Dress, it is whimsical and feminine and absolutely beautiful. I’m thinking of purchasing it for a date night or summer concert later in July or August.
I LOVE White, especially in the summer, it’s clean and fresh and elegant and I think the color is flattering on nearly every body type and skin tone.
Have a safe and Happy 4th of July! We live in the Greatest Country in the World.
