over the moon and the stars

This Moon and the Stars Ring is pretty awesome and I would love nothing more than to own it. If it wasn't $1,600! Maybe one day I can afford that for one piece of jewelry, but for now I'm stuck with that being the cost of practically my whole wardrobe.

all around the world

I saw a diy project on HGTV's Design on a Dime where a giant world map was bought and then the homeowners favorite places or dream destinations were cut out and framed so it was more abstract than having a map mural on the wall. Then on Wit & Whistle I saw the cheap but oh-so-lovely project of pinning a metallic world map to a cork board and tacking each place her products are sent to. I definitely want to copy this but for all the places I've traveled to in one color and all my dream vacation places in another. And here my obsession with maps is born. Such a simplistic thing and something honestly up until now I've barely used, and even now I'm not using a map for its natural use. whoops.

braille ring

How clever and creative is this Love Braille Ring? It's the perfect combination of cuteness and subtleness. Plus the colored dots and shipping boxes are so aesthetically pleasing.

Right now I'm not liking the rain outside, but I love the rain when interpreted like this. Who knew a raindrop shaped bracelet could be so beautiful? I think the simplicity of this bracelet is what makes it so special though. Adding just one would be a great addition to any outfit, and adding a few would make a great statement.

love sure is right

Dana from House Tweaking had THE PERFECT MASTER BEDROOM. Seriously, it's gorgeous. I love the grey and yellow, the modern and vintage mix, the beautiful headboard and the amazing sliding barn door. Her whole entire house is perfect, but I have major envy for her bedroom. 


diy project- tea cans as flower pots

What a cute idea?! and easy to do too.  I've seen old tea cans used as flower pots for weddings but I'm thinking they are perfect for kitchen decor.

I've been dying to get a great pair of oxfords for a while now, but I'm not too entirely sure what color or style I want or what to wear them with. I found a few of my favorites that aren't too classic and have a bit of a cute twist.

love how these look more like flats than the traditional oxford,
not so sure on the extreme point of the toe

leopard print always gets me

lovely details and color

perfect for spring and summer

pretty plain compared to the others, but you can add more detail to
the outfit

I think these are it. perfect colors and cute floral cutouts

Whenever I am shopping at GAP, I feel like anything I pick off the rack is going to look relaxed and simple, but chic and beautiful at the same time. I also feel like everything is made with mixing and matching in mind, which gives you that easy feeling that you can pick an outfit with your eyes closed and it will look good together. I'm usually short on time (due to that thing called a snooze button!) when getting ready and either have to skip on hair and makeup (which isn't a good idea) or on taking my time to pick out an outfit and really get all the details right. GAP already has all those little details perfected so it's an easy day when I grab jeans, one of their tees or tanks and one of their cardigans. I was looking at new styles online (and the deals for the presidents day sale!) and I am so loving all the pieces. Even the models and their hair look so beautiful. Can I just be a living GAP ad?

 cream and ruffles are a signature look of mine

this shirt would look awful on me, but I'm totally digging her hair

heart her beachy waves and blush top with just a hint
of sparkle on the shoulder 

I could totally go for this blazer that still has a
feminine and sophisticated look 

love the combination of stripes with the floral pattern
and those shoes 

another cute blazer look 

adding a few embellishments would be a simple diy project
 if you have a lot of plain cardigans that need jazzed up

perfect tee. perfect cardigan. perfect necklace.
and perfect girl. 

great color combo

I don't know how I feel about the almost lime skirt,
but I love the concept of the tucked in tee and belt 

one word. ruffles

there is the blush again. adore it and her hair style

spring has sprung

The weather has changed so suddenly the past few days, from snow and a temperature in the 30's, to sunshine and a high of 63 degrees. It's definitely for the better though. I brought out one of my versatile dresses that goes from late winter to summer (it has short sleeves and a black and white floral print with hints of pinks and mint) on Wednesday, and now all I want to wear is floral. Maybe if I limit my wardrobe to have some hint of floral then spring will come even faster? I only wish I had that kind of power.
