Currently craving: accessory edition


Who else has their own shoe rack, and takes up 75% of the closet, forcing their significant other to a small rack on one side? Yeah...that would be me. There are 4 walls of racks in my master closet. I take up 3 of them. My poor husband. I admit it though. I am a huge accessory lover. I invest in accessories because I believe they can 'make' the outfit. You can wear plain jeans, a plain t-shirt, and have your hair straight or in a messy bun, but if you throw in a nice pair of shoes, a killer bag and some stylish shades, you're golden. Also - if you invest in these pieces, they will last you a long time. You have to take care of them, but once you select and curate a collection of classic pieces, you're bound to add style and flair to any outfit. 

If I had to pick 3 accessories that I'm obsessed with, I would have to say purses, shoes and earrings. Those are my weakness!! I swear I can't go into a store without leaving with one of those...yes, it gets expensive. LOL. These are the ones I'm currently craving. 

I've linked below all EXACT products for you to shop! 

teal top + grey blazer = cute work outfit


Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today's look is super casual yet professional enough to wear to the office! This kind of look is one of my favorites! I actually bought 3 of these blazers in different colors because of how comfortable they are and how nice they look with anything from a t-shirt, to a silk blouse to a fancy tank top. Very versatile and are easy to care for too. There are several colors available as well! 

Also, I finally took the plunge and bought these gorgeous flats in another color! I have the plain black ones but I wanted to get these cognac colored ones for Spring! They match so many outfits and you can wear them with jeans or slacks.

Current Makeup Routine


Super excited for today's post! I'm sharing my current makeup routine, step by step! All the photos are in order of what I do.

I start off by actually mixing my face cream with the primer! It gives it a nice base to apply the powder. Believe it or not, I don't use any foundation. I don't like it, and I think it looks fake (at least on me!!) I then move to my eyebrows, eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara. 

I finish it off with blush, some bronzer, and highlighter. Then I top it off with some hydrating mist, or setting spray depending on how long my day is going to be. The hydrating mist sets the makeup and also helps it look less "powdery".

Lancome Nutrix Royal Face Cream

IPKN New York Face Primer

3 way Chambray


I love the versatility of the denim shirt! I've worn it 3 different ways here: tied around my waist, by itself, or over a basic tee. The material is very soft and I really like the quality of it. I've washed it a few times now and still looks like new. You can also iron it to make it look super smooth. Another way to wear it is with a pencil skirt and cute heels! What are some ways you wear this denim top?

Top: Chambray Denim Button Down Shirt // Pants: High-rise compression leggings // Shoes: Nike Juvenate in White // Purse: Kate Spade (similar!) // Watch: Fitbit Blaze
