My New Sunnies


Picked these gorgeous shades up at Nordstrom today while Markel and I were at the grove. ♡♡ love.  Just in time for summer!

COACH ‘Legacy – Haley’ Leather Satchel

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of Coach.  The style has never really matched mine and I’ve just…never loved their prints/style/accessories.  Which is why

I was surprised to see this bag online at Nordstroms.  It looks a lot like the LV Speedy bag doesn’t it?  I like the clean lines of this Legacy Haley satchel.

I want the black one!  Even the dark purple is cute…  Before I make an impulsive purchase, I think I’ll keep this purse in the back of my mind and see if I still want it around the time of my birthday (for *ahem* Markel to buy???)


Bow Ties for Men

While I was at home sick yesterday, I did a lot of online shopping…TOO much really.  I am almost done with buying options for my own bday outfit and now I need to concentrate on what Markel will be wearing!

I plan to get him this very cute Harvard Bow tie (he requested blue):

I think we’ll be pairing the blue bowtie with a crisp white button down, long shorts, and boat shoes.  Markel wants to add a sweater to drape on his shoulders as well~ which should totally complete the “hamptons” theme of the night! =D

I went to Nordstroms to find some options for him and it was pretty intimidating.  Everything was perfectly organized by color and style.  Wowzaa

Boyfriend Fashion: Preppy Style

So…Markel doesn’t know it yet…but this summer I plan to revamp his wardrobe with some more preppy pieces.  I’ve decided that preppy looks the best on him and really gives off a clean, put-together look.  He can mix and match without a problem, plus he’ll always look appropriate to every function without much effort.  Button downs, polos, khakis, boat shoes, hats… it’s SO adorable!

Here my inspiration board first, then I’ll show you the new things I’m looking to add to Markel’s wardrobe =D

 Okay…so it wasn’t just a FEW key pieces…kind of a lot really…But each item was so adorable i just couldn’t take anything out!

Accessories of the Day: Bangles and Bracelets


My new arm candy!! 🙂 I had the day off and a bunch of Etsy orders to fill, so I went to downtown LA to pick up some supplies. While I was there, I did some shopping for myself 😛 I am a huuuge turquoise fan so I picked up skinny bangles with various patterns of turquoise and 2 strong bracelet/links. The two bracelets I found looked like replicas of some expensive ones I saw at Bloomingdales and Nordstroms recently. Can’t wait to add these babies to my accessories!

Boyfriend Style, Looks and Fashion

My bf and I were talking last night about fashion and updating his wardrobe.  He’s still wearing t-shirts and jeans from high school/college!  As a man in his mid-twenties…it’s time for a major upgrade.  The conversation led to some ideas of what kind of new pieces should be added and what style would look best on him.

I mainly only like JCrew, Ben Sherman, and Banana Republic.  Is it safe to say, My style is his style?  lol$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$$pdp_fs418$

 Gosh…I’m getting so excited for spring/summer shopping!  Menswear can be so fun ❤
