Fancy Flats

I wear flats every day, as much as I want to throw on a pair of sassy heels it just isn’t practical for me. I recently ordered a few pairs from Asos and their shoe game right now is on point! Sharing my favorites below.ASOS SHOES

Screen Shots

I keep a pretty organized iPhone, a place for every app, file and folder. And all my folders are lined at the top of the screen so I can see my photo background – YES pretty OCD I know. Everyday I find myself taking more and more screenshots of things that inspire me, items want to buy and places I want to try. There is nothing more annoying then trying to find something online that you can’t remember where you saw it. I have several folders within my photos that I save these screen shots to for future use. Folders such as; travel, places to eat, to buy, art…  you get the idea. Here are a few of my recent favorites.

Clad & Cloth

With the amount of time I spend on instagram it’s no surprise I discover some of my all time favorites in the space. From artist, to shops and even restaurants – an instagram recommendation is high in my book! At the end of last year I discovered Clad & Cloth and the website is what my wardrobe dreams are made of. Think loose fitting dresses, ripped jeans, and long tops; if only I could live in these items everyday. I have three dresses from the brand {number one, three and five below} and cannot wait to add more to my collection. The prices are SO reasonable and they keep the site very well curated so you will not get overwhelmed. Also the biggest plus in my book {especially at my height – 5’11”} – everything is cut longer in length from tops to dresses!

Their Way & The Save Way {Lace Up}

It has been entirely too long since I have done one of these post! I’ve been eyeing lace up flats for some time now, but wanted a pair with a little something different. This weekend I scooped up the perfect pair and I can’t get over how close they are to the $500 Isabel Marant version.

Vested

The perfect all-season piece has to be the long vest! Wear it as a layering piece in the winter and over dresses in the spring and summer. Shop my favorites below!

A Year in Review {2015}

2015 in Review

To say 2015 was a whirlwind, would have to be an understatement. The ups {traveling and turning 30} and downs {my dads accident and the passing of my grandmother} made this year like no other I’ve experienced. On top of it all, I did make some pretty amazing memories this year. In no particular order, these are a few of my favorites from 2015!

Eataly: I traveled to Chicago a few times this year for work and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! There is nothing more freeing than traveling solo. Eataly was top of my list for dinner on all of my trips! {see post}

Oak Alley Plantation: Such a fun day date; still can’t believe it was my first time visiting!  {see post}

St. Thomas: My boyfriend and I took our second annual December trip to St. Thomas and stayed a little longer this time, such a great getaway from it all. {last years post}

San Francisco: A last-minute trip to San Fran over Labor Day was the perfect getaway. My boyfriend had never been and we were full-on adventure mode!

Willa Jean: A favorite 2015 addition to the New Orleans food scene – the cutest bakery!

Mexico City: My bf spent the first half of the year in Mexico City and brought back these amazing hand embroidered fabrics!

Memorable Meal: If someone asked what was my favorite food I ate this year it would have to be Thanh Long in San Francisco – the most unassuming restaurant with the best crab I’ve every had!

Soho House: I stayed at the Soho House in Chicago on a business trip and have to say this hotel has to be one of favorites in the US!

Best Solo Adventure: Chicago again – on one of my visits I got to extend a day into the weekend and had a tourist solo day in the city. I visited the Art Institute of Chicago and throughly enjoyed the amazing collection and wandering aimlessly throughout the Museum.

Lundi Lunch: Lundi Gras is the day before Fat Tuesday and my friends and I have created a tradition {coming up on our fourth annual} to lunch at Commander’s Palace before taking in the evening parades. The most festive time of the year in New Orleans.

Family Snap: My mom snapped this picture on our first trip to Florida post my dads accident, it was so nice to be together as a family and to have my dad back on his feet.

Auntie: Having a niece has been oh so fun and Christmas was like no other. Already looking forward to next year!

Favorite Selfie: Who doesn’t love a good selfie?! This was one of my favorites of the year.

Turning 30: Holy cow, how am I 30?! I had the perfect 30th with my family and close friends. {see post}

Last Minute

Still need gifts but no time to shop around? Amazon Prime has you covered! Here are a few of my favorites that will deliver in time for Christmas! How cute are the macaroon cheese knives? And coffee table books – you can never have too many! Shopping with Amazon Prime

Totes

During the work week I have to carry a large bag. I love to have everything I need and then some. My calendar, to-do list, notebook, small make-up bag, chargers…. you get the idea. I also never know when I may need to run out with laptop in tow – it’s so much easier to throw in an oversized handbag. Zara has been a go-to for affordable, yet stylish handbags and right now the tote selection is amazing! Time to get a new bag for the new year!

Social Shopping

No black Friday or cyber Monday for me this year! This year, I’m turning to my favorite social channel and shopping my instagram feed. Instagram has introduced me to so many fabulous artist and makers that I can’t wait to support this holiday season! See below for my favorites.
