A Little Holiday Sparkle + GIVEAWAY

Happy Monday! Look who's back.... (I'm pretty sure I open every post with a "look who's back" statement..) sorry for my hiatus once again... But today I'm super excited to be bringing you my first outfit post on & Pretty Things along with a giveaway with some amazing girls!
Zara Emerald Midi Skirt (love this ASOS version) // Zara Black Basic Long Sleeve // old UO Faux Fur Vest (obsessed with this color & THIS one is on my want list), Schutz Pony Hair Pumps (now on sale!!) // Marc Jacobs x Target Gold Clutch (similar here) // Single Pearl Bracelet (similar here & here) // Stella & Dot necklace (c/o)

First of all, can we talk about how uncomfortable I am in front of the camera? How do all your fashion bloggers do this without feeling awkward? Tips please! Anyway, I digress.. so this weekend myself and 4 blogger friends got together to shoot for this giveaway.. and please don't be fooled by the smiles and bare legs.. it was probably in the 30s and freezing this weekend in NYC... #MAJORbloggerprobs - kudos to everyone and their fab outfit posts during the winter months..


Anyway, as we were planning to get together for this shoot, we were told to dress in holiday attire, incorporating jewel tones and sparkle the night before, but lets be real, I woke up at 9:50 when we had to meet at 11AM, and was in panic mode. I definitely didn't have my outfit planned out, but I'm not too disappointed in what I was able to put together in 5 minutes. When in doubt, black pointy pumps, and a good fur vest will pull your outfit together ;)

Now let's just get to the giveaway.. with the holiday season just around the corner (how the heck is November already coming to an end?! #majorWTF), I partnered with 4 other NYC bloggers to give away this awesome Stella & Dot necklace to one of your lucky readers! The best part? This necklace can be worn 5 different ways! Don't believe me? Check out the other girls' blogs to see all the ways you can wear this gem!

White After Labor Day

How is it already September? and halfway through NYFW?! 2014 needs to sloww down. Anyway, look who's blogging again :D I know, I know... Sorry for being the worst blogger, but a huge thank you to those who continue to follow me on IG and visit my page despite the fact that my last post was in May >.< #ipromisetobebetter 

It's crazy how many blogger besties I've made in the last few months. From being internet friends to real life friends, it's been so nice to have a group of girlfriends who understand the need to capture the perfect IG photo before eating or that mutual understanding of the unspoken rule of PC-ing each other, and supporting one another to help grow their following. Anyway, before I get all mushy-gushy, just wanted to say, here's a post for all my blogger besties, (esp you Court) for yelling at me to blog every. single. day. hehe xx

Now onto the post, let's throw the "no white after Labor Day" rule out the window, cause so far this fall, I've been gravitating towards whites & neutrals, and I think this may just go right into winter. Here's a white skirt fit for summer, but 3 ways you can transition it into fall! Hope you enjoy! x





Let me know which outfit is your favorite! And will you be wearing white this fall?! x

{Put A Pearl On It}

When a coworker walked in with her "Mise en Dior" earrings, it was love at first sight. Let a few weeks go by and you're seeing pearls everywhere. From Bauble Bar to Vita Fede, everyone's jumped on the pearl bandwagon, and... I don't hate it.
one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve 

Tell me I'm not the only one liking that pearls are making a comeback. (Not that this classic gem is ever "out" of style.) Anyway, happy Friday! Cheers to the weekend! x

{Barely There Denim}

Or more commonly known as destroyed, distressed or ripped denim. These deconstructed jeans have made a huge comeback, and the bigger the holes, the better. This brings me back to high school days when I worked at Abercrombie and destroyed denim was all the rage. Getting your foot caught while putting them on always lead to huge holes right around the knee, unintentionally. And it looks like this trend is back in full swing, more holes please.

The trend definitely can look sloppy, but when paired with clean, classic tee and a pair of great pumps, it instantly pulls the look together. Shop the trend below —
