Flower Child ✿

Seventies fashion keeps making it’s comeback, especially with everything flowers. I love dainty and soft looks and flowered headbands, shirts, dresses and free-spirited apparel are all on my fashion fave lists this spring and summer. Expect to see more hippie chic with fringe, bleached denim, crop tops, halter dresses, and my personal favorite- platforms. How do you wear your flowers?

Ruffled Details

I love an outfit that can be career chic and translate into a perfect evening outfit as well. These perfectly versatile black legging from H&M have just the right amount of detail with a golden zipper to make them office appropriate.  The ruffled top is perfect with a simple boyfriend blazer for the office and the perfect top for an post-work happy hour. It was my first stab at open toe shoes this season, although my toes were chilly, I am done with boots and sweaters! Happy spring everyone!

Distressed to Impress

When I was in high school and college, I lived in my Hollister ripped jeans.  I remember shopping with my mom and she would say, “You want me to pay for these jeans?”  Distressed clothing, including torn and faded jeans, are still a staple in my wardrobe.  I love how you can dress up distressed denim with some pumps or dress them down with some casual sneakers.

What is your favorite distressed piece of clothing? How do you style your ripped jeans?

Thin Mint Martini

One of my favorite St. Patty’s Day recipes is my pistachio cake which you can find here.  This year, I decided to take the green a notch further with some delicious girl scout inspired martinis.  I love chocolate and mint together so this drink is the perfect drink to get your liquor and peppermint patty fix.

Miami + stella&dot Giveaway!

I am lucky to have friends in high places (pun-intended). My husband and I visited his best friend in Miami and I made sure to take a photo each night from his high-rise balcony. He lives in Brickell which is such an eclectic and carefree area in Miami, about 15 minutes from South Beach. We frequented the beach, strolled through the shops, and dined at some amazing restaurants. It was not easy coming back to snow today in Connecticut. Where art thou spring?

Also, I was in love with my renegade bangle c/o stella&dot. Enter my giveaway teamed up with Lauren Vincente Stella&Dot for a $40 Gift card!
