Leopard Print Favorites |

Believe it or not, I actually took this pic on my iPhone 7! 

The leopard print trend is back and better than before! So happy it's a thing again because I'm loving the sassy touches of warm brown-ish gold + black that are flooding my timeline. Ladies, you are all crushing it! I felt so inspired by a post I saw, I decided to wear my Decolette Louboutin heels last night. To be totally honest, I was loving/hating them at the same time. They're so pretty, but just so uncomfortable. I ended up taking them off under the table - no shame.

I tagged twelve of my favorite high/low, must-have leopard print finds on for you to shop. See below for a sneak peek, and be sure to click the link or 'screenshot' this pic! Spoiler alert: one of these pieces retails for $15.97!

Last "Fall" Look Because It's Winter Now...

 Photography by Robby Trottier of Version 2.0 Productions

We're throwing it back to warmer days today! Fall florals are my absolute favorite, and a great way to sneak in some non-traditional transitional (is that a tongue twister)? pieces into your fall/winter wardrobe. This Show Me Your Mumu romper is made from the comfiest fabric, and has a gorgeous silhouette. I paired it with my favorite thigh-high boots from Bobbles & Lace. This exact pair isn't available anymore, but there are some other great options linked. Best part? If you're a first time customer you'll receive 10% off your online order!

Happy Shopping!

My Mom Hates These Jeans

Photography by Hannah Rose Osofsky

As you know, I love anything + everything distressed. For that reason, these are my favorite jeans of all time. Much to the dismay of our parents, ripped denim will never go out of style (throwback to middle school when we were all major trendsetters with our Abercrombie jeans). This pair from Mura Boutique sits at the lower part of the waist, and are slightly cropped - adding some structure to the chaos. 

Instead of keeping it 100% casual, I decided to wear the Cleo Bodysuit from MAJORELLE. Hands down, one of my favorite brands right now. I discovered it on Revolve, and can't stop adding pieces to my mental wish list.

I rounded out the look with earrings I found at a local thrift store, and my infamous sock booties from Mura Boutique!

It's Still Summer, Right?!

Photography by Brad Bahner 

It's 71 degrees! I'm still in denial that it's fall, and this weather is making it pretty easy to keep up the facade. One of my favorite brands right now is Gentle Fawn, and I was so excited to break out this layered tank one more time! It is by no means a transitional piece, but hey, let a girl live.

Since I wanted to keep the look simple and casual, I threw on my favorite light wash, high-waist jeans. I get so many compliments on these, and people have a hard time believing that they're from Amazon! My biggest tip for shopping on Prime is to read the customer reviews, and make sure returns are free (in case it doesn't fit just right, or it doesn't match the description).

For accessories, it's the return of the Luci sandals from Dolce Vita, and the blog debut of my favorite crossbody from Henri Bendel. It's sold out in white, but still available in black. 

Fingers crossed it stays warm forever!
