Valentine's Day Gift Ideas


[All images clickable].

Happy Friday!   For today's post, I have rounded up a few of my favorite Valentine's Day gift ideas for your gal pals.  From heart-shaped hosiery (only $13!) to pretty polishes and perfume, there is something for all of your girlfriends, and maybe even a little something to treat yourself as well.  Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays, because I love all of the pink and hearts.  For example, I love all of the Valentine's Day inspired pieces in the Kate Spade spring collection, especially this adorable heart watch.  Also, I love this cute pink ban.do gym bag for my funny friend/workout buddy.  It is so spot-on and perfect.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Good morning, I hope everyone survived the great blizzard!  We got around seven inches of snow in middle Tennessee and were snowed in all weekend.  I had a blast playing with my little rescue puppy in the snow (this was his first snow).  He went absolutely berserk and ran so many laps and circles (lol), even though it came up above his stomach.  It was too funny!  :-)

Anyway, with all the snow and ice from Jonas over the last several days, I immediately gravitated toward this chunky white oversized sweater to stay warm and cozy.  Since the sweater itself is so loose-fitted, I opted for a more fitted pencil skirt and these fabulous bow heels.  I have these heels in black and red and have gotten so much mileage out of them.  I love them for special events, such as weddings (the black heels) and holiday parties (especially the red), and think they will be so cute for Valentine's Day, which is right around the corner.  

Thanks so much for stopping by... Stay warm and be careful out there!!

P.S. A huge thank you to my dad for taking these photos!  He even shoveled off this part of the street in front of their house prior to taking pics- best dad in the world!

Save or Splurge


[All images clickable.]

As a young professional, I am always on the hunt for a good deal when it comes to shopping for the latest trends. I am much more inclined to splurge on high-quality, timeless investment pieces that I will wear often and are reflective of my personal style.  Several of the items above look practically identical side-by-side, but the ones to the left are less expensive alternatives, and most people probably would not even notice you are donning a dupe. For example, I love these BP round sunglasses (only $12!) as a cheaper alternative to these Karen Walker round shades, and wear mine all the time.  On the flip side, I splurged on the Clare V fold-over leopard clutch during Shopbop's Christmas Sale, but it is totally worth the splurge because it is the perfect daytime and evening clutch, although the leopard clutch to the left is a very nice alternate at close to one-half the price.  What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Good morning, I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  I saw Madonna in Nashville last night with some of my girl friends and am still on Cloud 9- it was an amazing show!  My inner 80's child loved hearing all the classic Madonna songs that I grew up listening to along with some of her latest compositions from her new Rebel Heart CD.  She shut it down and is absolutely flawless in person.  We were originally supposed to sit pretty high up since we bought our tickets last-minute, but when we were on the way to our seats we stopped to take a bunch of pictures in front of the Madonna selfie mirror and had a little too much fun (3 lady lawyers, so I'm sure it was entertaining, haha), and were invited to sit on the floor... in the fifth row and had an awesome view.  I guess you could say we were "Lucky Stars".  ;-)

Happy Friday!!  TGIF!  Today, I am bundling up in my mixed-stitch turtleneck sweater from Banana Republic. This sweater is a must-have for winter.  It is so warm and cozy and perfect for frigid days (as seen above- it was 30 degrees and the wind was absolutely killer!).  I love the vibrant cobalt blue, and the luxe Italian yarn is so soft.  I love wearing this sweater with jeans and heels (or boots) for a more casual look, or, pairing it with a pencil skirt for a more polished look.  The best news is that it is currently on sale and available in several different shades.  I am thinking about getting it in grey and olive green since both colors are so versatile.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend and stay warm!

Good morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Today's look is inspired by an outfit I found on Pinterest several years ago, hence the title- "Pinned It, Spinned It".  I love this black and white polka dot skirt and yellow blazer combo for a fun, laid-back look for office days, or for meeting with more creative clients.  I also love wearing this skirt with hot pink accents, as seen here.  You can never go wrong with black and white, or anything polka dotted, as far as I'm concerned!

One of my favorite things about a new year is buying a new planner to fill up.  These planners are so cute and fun, and I love how most of them are seventeen months (as opposed to twelve or thirteen)- for those of us who procrastinate in December when it comes to replacing last year's planner.  ;-) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  I hope y'all have a great weekend!!

Good morning!  Black and pink is one of my favorite color combinations, so when I saw this blush beauty from Banana Republic, I knew I had to snag it.  I love the pretty blush pink shade and scalloped edges, and I especially love the scalloped spread collar for a polished finish.  This blouse is perfect for work- I always feel so fancy when I wear it. Haha!  If you are like me, I am always on the hunt for feminine work shirts because I get so bored with plain button-downs.  In addition to blush, there is also a black and white (very chic!) and blue version in the collection.  I love this blouse, but it is very long and loose, so you might want to size down (FYI: I am wearing XS and it goes down below my mid-thigh).  Throw on some blush pink heels and grab your favorite blush bag and you are ready to tackle the work day in style!
