Shop the Trend: Endless Summer

Friday, May 27, 2016

I realized I am embarking on quite a few beach trips this summer. Although, PA has been experiencing some extreme bi-polar, rainy weather, I can't help but think ahead to warm sand and soft waves. Alas, this week's trend is all about swimwear.

This season, I find myself increasingly attracted to one-piece swimsuits which I have not worn since I was younger. Although it might include a bit more fabric, these suits still maintain an air of sex appeal. I also have been digging high-waisted bathing suits because of their retro vibe. Obviously, no beach attire is complete without accessories so I included some of my favorites. Specifically, those Gentle Monster sunglasses made me swoon. One day I will afford you. One day.

Are you going anywhere this summer?

Adventure: Longwood Gardens

Wednesday, May 25, 2016













Last week my boyfriend and I ventured to Longwood Gardens, a plant sanctuary just an hour drive away. It honestly felt like a different world. Tucked away in the conservatory were a bunch of exotic plants and flowers and like a true blogger, one of my favorites was the room filled with succulents and cacti.

Outside there was garden upon garden of beautifully manicured greenery. The entire time I was blown away by how scrupulous the gardeners have to work. There seriously was not a leaf out of place. If you are ever in the Pennsylvania area, definitely consider spending a few hours here! Especially if the weather is just right as there is quite a bit of walking. :)

I Don't Even Play Sports

Monday, May 23, 2016








I have never been an athletic person. You can probably assume this just by looking at me to be honest. However, you can catch me invading local courts to take ootd photos, haha. Is fashion a sport?

After wanting a pair for the longest time and some encouragement from my boyfriend (who is somewhat of a Vans enthusiast), I purchased my first pair. I was drawn more to the old skool style versus the regular and miraculously found these bad boys. I love the leather material and gold zipper hardware that makes them a bit more unique. These are the perfect casual sneakers and you guys will definitely be seeing them make a lot of appearances in upcoming posts!

Shop the Inspo: Denim Days

Friday, May 20, 2016



The first denim trousers were incepted in Italy and by the mid 19th century, was introduced into the United States. Made popular in 1873 by Jacob Davis who manufactured the first pair of "rivet-enforced" denim pants thanks to a customer requesting a pair of durable pants her husband could wear while chopping wood. Later, Davis was mass-producing his denim pants with Levi Strauss & Co.

Now, I truly believe there is nothing more classic than denim. If the American Dream had to be represented in fabric form, what more fitting than the blue jeans, symbolic of an individual's durability and hard-work. I love how casual and effortless a denim look is and lately I have been feeling so inspired by everything from distressed denim and Canadian tuxedos (see my version here).

I have been on the hunt for a pair of high-waisted, light-wash, mom jean-esque, vintage pants but so far have not succeeded. I recently scoured my favorite thrift store and left empty handed. However, I came home and did some online browsing and compiled some of my favorite denim pieces from around the web. Enjoy!
