the friday five

the friday five:  ASOS pink cacoon coat, heart and polka dotted top from Madewell, gold Fossil watch, feather barrette, and two-tone tassel loafers from Nordstrom via M Loves M @marmar


Happy Friday everyone! This week went by pretty fast for me, considering my days were a lot longer. I started waking up an hour earlier this week so that I could go to the gym in the mornings with Matthew. It's been so hard for me to wake up early because I'm not a morning person but I've been needing to get back to the gym desperately. I have a lot of back problems so strengthening those muscles in particular is so important. I'm glad I've been able to motivate myself to get up early..just gotta stick with it!

This week I've been feeling a little bit preppy so a pink cacoon coat is high on my wishlist {it also comes in a classic camel color!}. I've also been on the lookout for a cute pair of loafers. I love this pair with the two-tone colors and tassels. It would look so cute with a plaid shift dress or with a pair of jeans a classic button up, maybe like this heart and polka dotted top!

I've wanted a gold watch forever and I recently got this one from Fossil. It's so classic and the perfect everyday accessory!

Ok. so I might be alone in this statement but I totally want hair accessories to come back. I'm talking headbands a la Gossip Girl and cute shiny hair clips. This feather barrette is adorable and would look so stylish paired with a braid. They also have this jumbo feather clip that would make quite the statement. What do you guys think? Are you a fan of hair accessories coming back?

Happy Friday everyone! Have a wonderful weekend!

earth tones for fall

Bright colors are kinda my fave {cough Wednesday's post!}, but when fall rolls around I totally love to embrace earth tones. I have a love for neutrals like gray, black, brown and cream. They're rich, a little complex and soothing. Lately I've been searching for the perfect gray jeans and honestly these Old Navy ones are amazing! They fit me perfectly! Usually I always have that gap in the back, but not with these guys. Plus, you can't beat the price! I paired it with this printed adore t-shirt and my trusty brown jacket. At first I wasn't sure if I should pair it with a black leather jacket {like this one} but I love the combo of brown with gray, even if I am wearing black booties.

back to life essentials

August 21, 2014

Even though I'm not in school anymore I love the excitement during the month of August. Everyone is getting things together that will help back their life a little easier, like getting a new planner, a tech accessory, or a basic tee that you can wear with anything. Whether you're going back to school or back to life, these are some essentials to keep you organized and on top of things! 



Hanes was kind enough to partner with me on this post. Their v-neck tees have been a favorite of mine for years. To be honest, sometimes I'll wear them during the day and then at night too! They're comfy and easy to wear and they have tons of cute color options to choose from. Make sure to check out their recent lookbook! It's so fun and full of energy!
