Gingham & Floral

I love a good casual, chic outfit. My casual uniform for the most part consists of a comfortable button down, my favorite worn-in denim, and a pair of flats. On the weekends, when I'm not traveling, you will find me in a variation of this outfit.  I wore this outfit recently to run some last minute errands around the city before Easter. It was a gorgeous day that required me to be out and about. While I love being even more comfortable than this (i.e. yoga pants, a tee, and no makeup), I don't often wear that around town for fear of seeing everybody and their mother (isn't that the way it always happens when you look your worst!?!)

This weekend I toted around with my new favorite bag, my Gigi New York Shopper! This has quickly become my every day bag. It's a great ivory color, is embossed with my initials (who doesn't love that), and it's handles are adjustable, as is the cross body strap! It was the best bag to hold my to-do lists, water bottle, planner, and of course, my pink roses I picked up on a stop to Whole Foods.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a date night look featuring the Gigi New York Olivia Shopper!  


Short Story (+giveaway!)

A few weeks ago, Brian and I went to the beach for a weekend getaway. The beach is one of my favorite, most relaxing places to go. As soon as my feet hit the sand, my worries seem to disappear! When packing for the beach I pack comfortable, easy pieces...I want the whole beach trip to be effortless. That's the point of being at the beach, right?  I always make sure that I pack pieces that will be perfect for those chilly beach nights and comfortable for the inevitable sunburn I will get those first few beach trips! For this most recent trip we had amazing weather. I brought along my favorite lace top (best purchase ever!) and these shorts for a fun, beachy look! I was so thankful I had this outfit after a long day in the sun! This outfit was so cute and very comfortable!

Townhouse Tour: Bedroom Details

I've been wanting to do a townhouse tour since we moved in August, but I kept hestitating for a number of reasons. I am a perfectionist, so I wanted everything to be in the right place, for me to love every piece in my house, and for it to finally be clean enough to take photos (#truth)! But when I came to the realization that our home will never be perfect (it's certainly not pinterest worthy) and that nothing will ever fully be "done," I decided it was time to post! This is the place that we have made ours and love coming home to daily! Are there things we want change? Definitely. Is that ok? Certainly! So today I am going to share some of the details of our bedroom with you! Enjoy...

All of our bedroom furniture has been in my family for a long time. It got refinished and a new paint job when I moved into my first apartment. It's amazing what paint and new handles can do to a piece of furniture! When we originally moved in we had a gray & white comforter. It had worked well with the coloring of my last apartment, but it made our new room look so drab. I searched and searched for what seemed like months for brighter bedding (that wasn't too girly!) and settled with this set from HomeGoods! I also recently added this lamp to our nightstand! I absolutely love the cut out details on it. Our bedroom isn't 100% how I would like it, but we've worked well with what we have! So, there's (most) of our bedroom... Check back soon for details on another area in our home!
