Cold Shoulder Blouse






Blouse: Forever 21
Jeans: BP 
Jacket: GAP
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Mules: Forever 21
Earrings: Kenneth Jay Lane

I seem to be on a roll with Forever 21 lately ... and this blouse was only 17 dollars! I enjoy trendy pieces but never want to spend a lot of money on them.  Trends come and go and it's best to just get some things at F21 and call it a day.  I was lucky enough to find these very expensive looking sunglasses there as well for only 7 dollars.  Sometimes you have to dig at F21 but it's worth it in the end when you find gems like this.  

Spring Dreaming


There's nothing like a new season on the horizon and everyone freaking out over the clothes, shoes, and bags for said season.  I guess I am a lemming because I am also enjoying looking at all of the new stuff for spring and can't wait to wear some myself.  In a dream world, I'd love to have all of the above in my closet this spring, but until then, I'll settle for a couple :) 

ONE by STYLEKEEPERS Top- I have no idea why so many words in this brand and capitalized, but that's how it is on the Shopbop websites so I am going to write it the same way.  I've seen a few versions of this top around the internet and I must say that I love the cut of the neck with the tie waist and the ruffle bell sleeves.  It comes in several different patterns and prints, so eat your little heart out.  
Linea Paolo Mules- I think these are the best shoes you can get for spring and summer.  These shoes are simple, easy and you really can't go wrong with a leather mule.  You can wear them with jeans, dresses, shorts, black pants, the list goes on and on.  

Cult Gaia Ark Handbag- I love a good straw bag and as soon as I saw this Ark bag circulating the interwebs I knew that I had to have it for summer!  It's shaped like a little ark and the top opens up completely to a very large compartments for your belongings.  

Pink Karen Walker Sunglasses- I don't think these need any explanation.  I love Karen Walker sunglasses and the fact that these are pink makes them a winner in my book.  

Blue Lace Dress- Lace is EVERYWHERE this spring and this little lace dress is feminine and flirty without being too revealing or too tight.  It would be perfect for a wedding or event.  

Gucci Marmont Bag- a girl can dream right?  Has anyone else noticed how Gucci is taking over lately? I am seeing more Gucci bags than Chanel bags.  I think people were getting sick of the constant price hikes by Chanel each year and said enough with it! 

Mercedes Salazar Earrings- these earrings are to die for and are so intricately designed.  You all know I love a good statement earring and these are some definitely "conversation starter" earrings.  

Marc Fischer Wedges- these are a variation on last year's ever popular Marc Fisher wedge that EVERYONE and their Mom had ... do not fear those are back this year too, but I am digging this different version with perforated suede.  

Essie Spring Color Trio- who doesn't love some Essie pastels?  These colors have me ready to get an Easter-themed mani/pedi! 

BlankNYC Suede Moto- this cult favorite jacket is back this spring in fun colors such as blush pink, powder blue, and a pretty purple sure to turn heads paired with any outfit.  I got so much wear out of my taupe one from the fall and I am definitely planning on getting a spring color soon :) 

Asymmetric Ruffle Top- these tops have really grown on me since seeing them around last season and this upcoming season.  I think they are perfect to pair with some white jeans or white pants for a spring party or pair with an a line skirt for a wedding! 

Pretty In Pink





Dress: Red Valentino via RTR 
Shoes: Vince
Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o 

I think if one dress had to sum up my style in a nutshell it would be this Red Valentino one.  I love the pale pink color, the peter pan collar, the puffed sleeves and the ruffle bottom.  As much as I love dressing trendy at times, this classic look is definitely one of my favorites.  


Mother of Pearl Dixie Dress






Shoes: Vince
Watch: Daniel Wellington c/o

How fun is this white funnel sleeve dress?  I usually don't love super-tight dresses and this one was a little snug on the bum, but I need to step out of my comfort zone every once and a while.  Funnel and bell sleeves are very popular right now so stay tuned for some fun ones for spring in a post next week.  Have a great weekend! 

My Favorite Masks Right Now

Top Row: Tula Exfoliating | Glamglow Firming | REN Glycol 
Bottom Row: Fresh Rose | Tata Harper Resurfacing | Kiel's Rare Earth 

1. Tula Exfoliating Mask- this mask reminds me a lot of my old favorite ProActive mask that I used to use in high school and college.  It has little exfoliating beads and is really good at leaving your face clean and soft! 

2. Glamglow Firming Mask- I tried this mask last week for the first time and was surprised when it came out a metallic silver color! I don't know how much it helped with firming as I have jowls that can't be helped :P But it was a good mask and left my face looking illuminated and smooth.  

3. REN Glycol Renewal Mask- this is a great mask for brightening and renewing the texture of your skin.  It can sting sometimes so be prepared if you use a retinol or acne cream you may want to lay off a couple of days before trying this mask.  

4. Fresh Rose Mask- this mask is more for hydration when your skin is feeling dry or just dull.  Plus I love the smell of roses so this mask in a win-win.  

5. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask- I used this mask a couple of years ago and kind of forgot about it until I recently received a free sample with an online order.  I want to keep this mask in stock for the rest of time! It is such a good mask for radiance, smoothing, and just generally making your face look better and tighter.  

6. Kiehl's Rare Earth Mask- this is a good mask for when my face is feeling oily ... it will clean your pores and help prevent breakouts due to too much oil production.
