american flag or left over Valentine's Day dressing?

Mixed feedback from this outfit…
Some people told me I was patriotic for the Olympics or what I looked like a walking Valentine

What I Wore: glasses- ℅ Proopticals, chambray top- Old Navy, striped top- thrifted, pants- C.Wonder, boots- vintage, lips- Revlon Just Bitten in Standout  

I would go more towards the left over Valentine's Day dressing since I matched my donut,
these are the things that dreams are made of.

great grey fall

Another flashback from the fall,
which was quite literally a fall because my sister fell down the stairs and broke her arm...

Upon posting these photos on instagram, I noticed this creeper pug in the background...

What I Wore: glasses- Kensie, MRS necklace- Kate Spade {gift from sister}, sweatshirt- H&M, pants- Target, loafers- Sam & Libby for Target, bag- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target 

My Phillip Lim for Target bag matches the interior of my parent's car perfectly!

about the glasses life

This is one of those "all out" kinda themes...
of course it is centered around glasses because they pretty much define my personal style...

What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, blouse {under}- Forever 21, sweater- Urban Outfitters, pants- Joe Fresh from JcPenney, necklace- Alicia Lynn Jewelry, earrings- Forever 21, loafers- Rebecca Minkoff  

So as some of you may know, 
I got contacts this summer to try them out as a deal with my mom for the wedding,
Turns out I am not a contacts kinda gal. 

For a few reasons:
1. Have to make sure my eye makeup looks nicer than it usually does.
2. Have to make sure my eyebrows are nice and plucked.
3. They freeze in the air conditioner and cold air.

I am just not very good at them,
but I do enjoy my new contact case,
in the form of glasses of course.
{ordered on Amazon}

I will try to wear contacts more in the summer,
only to be able to wear more of my sunglass collection!

All about that glasses life.

Leopard & Camo {Look #2}

I wore this Leopard & Camo combo to thrifting & then a night out on the town in Philly.
But while my sister was taking these photos we had a hilarious run in with a mom and a little girl who really had to use the bathroom… on the side of the road. Next to my sister.

What I Wore: glasses- Warby Parker, top & undershirt- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target, necklace- baublebar, pants- Gap, flats- Target

Also stopped by DSW to score this amazing pumps for $9 & leopard knitted scarf for $12!

Threw on my new pumps to go out in Philly!

First stop was the South Philly Tap Room,
had more than our fill in good beers, headcheese tacos, & oysters! 

After a stop at "Good Dog" bar, 
Pat's was in order. 

Until next time Philly!

Leopard & Camo- my favorite combo yet! {Look #1}

This outfit/combo is a bit of a throwback,
considering these were taken on a bright, sunny, clear fall day…
But I loved this combo so much- maybe be one of my new favorites!
wishful posting since more snow is on the way here in NJ.

What I Wore:  glasses- Warby Parker, top & skirt- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target, necklace- lovealways, flats- Target

This outfit was from our celebrations at The Vault in Yardley, PA for their Oktoberfest,
I loved the mugs that we got to take home!

I fell in love with this painting from Nicolet Schenck
It is the same artist from the piece I recently picked up for my bedroom! 
Love the style of her work!

Today also marks being married for 6 months,
I wanted to show a little home decor using some repurposed wedding decorations!
Loved these left over peacock feathers & vases!
Also love the cake topper from CreativeButterflyXOX!

I made this chalkboard years ago from a frame from a yard sale & my sister decorated it for the photo booth, I love the way it came out & how it now hangs on my wall!

My dress form now holds my bachelorette party dress, sash, tiara, & veil from my wedding celebrations

My fridge used to hold some of my pictures from the photo booth,

But now this handmade cork board made out of wine and champaign corks over our years together 
that held our seating tickets at the wedding reception,
Can now hold pictures in the dining room!

I also wanted to share the gifts that I got for my bridesmaids!
I loved these robes that I picked up from SunsetToSunrise

& also got this awesome deal from baublebar that included a necklace, bracelet, sunglasses, hair product and a cosmetic bag! 
It was the perfect bridesmaids gift! 

& my bridesmaids also got TOMS wedges for their dresses!
{What can I say, I love giving presents!}

I also got my maid of honor and sister Bianca this Kate Spade bangle

As a mother of the bride gift I got my mom this amazing necklace from icravejewels
It was perfect for her dress! 

My amazing parents

Can't believe it has been 6 months already!
