if you follow me on instagram, then you’ll know i’ve been into comfortable basics lately. you’ll also know that i’ve been wearing my new sam edelman booties any chance i get because, let’s be honest here. sam edelman shoes are always comfy & cute & you can never over wear an ankle bootie. by the way, how pretty is this simple skirt? it’s not mine, so i love it even more & want it to be mine. the slit falls in the perfect place & it’s 100% silk so not only is it pretty to look at, but it feels really nice too.

well, here’s to one of the shortest weeks in my opinion! tomorrow’s already friday … and that means on monday, i will be leaving for shanghai in 1 week.

i love an entryway that’s simple in design but still makes an impact. one of my favorite parts of this neutral space is the sconce from serena & lily. it’s not very large and actually quite simple looking but still manages to make an impact. also, how great is this striped rug from zara home? by the way, everything from zara home is super cute and very reasonable in price! & if you haven’t heard of dwellstudio then definitely check it out. that’s where those pretty little paintings are from. this site offers a variety of decor pieces, from home furniture, rugs and even items for little kids. the sale page is looking pretty tempting right now. stay tuned though because later this week i’m sharing a collage of a few pieces i’m currently eyeing from dwellstudio!

so, what do we think of this entryway?!

this blue wall? seriously my new favorite back drop. i still love finding new walls to stand in front of (usually where i can’t be seen by others because then i get awkward) but this one is definitely a favorite of mine.

i found this cynthia rowley coat at tjmaxx for such a good price! plus, you can never have too many coats (yes, you probably can). it’s neutral so i can wear it with just about anything. the sweater is my mom’s, is from jcrew and is super comfortable. i also love the color and that the back is a different material.

happy thursday!

happy thursday! i’m excited to share a new collection Warby Parker announced today. it’s the corner collection, which introduces 5 new styles {both eyeglasses & sunglasses} in 2 new colors. this particular collection focuses on incorporating traditional shapes like keyhole bridges & straight-edged brow bars. quick side note – all styles aside from the goodney are unisex. i’m definitely a fan of everything, just as i always have been. this company & their branding are on point. just visit their website & you’ll see what i mean. oh, & just like every other collection, for every pair sold, a pair is given to someone in need through their non-profit partners.

hutton, topper, goodney, teddy & quentin. the names of the five new styles. talk about clever, unique & just plain brilliant. i paired a few of my favorite glasses with outfits i thought suited each frame & its particular style. take no. 1 – to me, the goodney is super chic so i paired it with a pretty top & skirt. the topper is a little more casual looking, so i thought a basic outfit worked best with this frame. i’d love to know, which style is your favorite?

a blue striped wall?! yes, indeed. i get pretty excited about things like this. whenever i see a wall with potential, i remember it. & then i go back, & take pictures with it. or, i make whoever is driving the car stop (usually super last minute because that’s when i see it) so we can take photo’s.

so, these photo’s happened just like that. my sister was driving the car, i spotted the wall & we stopped & took advantage. i really like this wall & you’ll probably see it used more and more. this was on a friday & i was feeling the casual friday fall vibe. if you’re in that kind of mood, throw on skinny jeans, loafers, a comfy tee, a long sweater & a high {messy} bun & call it a day.

happy friday! today i’m featured over on The Village in the fashion section so be sure to go check it out.

one great thing about being home aside from spending time with family and friends is being able to have more than one closet to choose from. having two sisters makes that super easy! i decided to style this checkered dress from urban outfitters because i absolutely love it. keeping it casual, i wore my jack wills sneakers, a simple fedora and a little black purse i found at a thrift store last year for $10!

stay tuned for some more outfit / decor posts! i’ll be traveling to rhode island today for work (will definitely have a post from that trip) but continue to check back in for new content.

also, what do you guys think of the new handwritten watercolor title that Eva Black Design did for me?! she’s super talented & i love the way it turned out.
