VERY COZY

after several days of really cold temperatures, i’m ready to trade in my everyday leather boots for a snakeskin pair. nothing personal (i adore those boots) i’m just searching for little ways to brighten up these winter days. you feel me? whenever i feel like i’m wearing the same sweaters every week, i will play with different accessories like bold earrings, or an unexpected purse to switch things up. lately i’ve been on the hunt for a pair of snakeskin boots, a fresh alternative to leopard, and a print i don’t own too much of. these loeffler randall boots are v. luxurious — i would pair them with something more casual like a textured, oversized knit, simple straight jeans and chunky gold earrings. so cute for work or out to sunday brunch.

NEW ARRIVALS / SPRING CLOTHES FROM NEED SUPPLY CO.

lately, all i want to do is shop. need supply co is one of my favorite sites to browse -- it's incredibly curated, and the pieces always feel special and fresh. during one of my last online window-shopping sprees i stopped by need supply co, and found myself wanting everything, even things i usually don't think i'd like. for example, i never thought i'd have a pair of blue ruffle trousers on my radar, but now i need them in my life! so today i wanted to share some of the pieces i liked the most from need supply's new spring arrivals because it's too good not to (and let's be honest: this doesn't include the home section, that's a whole different story):

AUGUST FAVORITES

i know, i know: i haven't done a monthly favorites in a realllly long time (i'm the worst). i hate neglecting this space, but i'm working on being more consistent for fall. i always consider September as my new year, something about the change in seasons makes me feel the urge to refresh and start anew. especially after a whirlwind of a summer. to remedy this right away, here's what i've been up to this August with a few of my favorite finds and memories:

FISHBONE EARRINGS

these fishbone earrings from Anthropologie....be still my heart! i know i share a lot of things i love on here, especially shoes and earrings, but these may just make my top 5 favorites of the year. they are the ideal length (aka they elongate your neck), and are light as a feather. plus i adore their hand drawn design. simply put: they're gorgeous. you can get a pair for yourself here, you'll love them as much as i do, promise!!

SWEETBITTER

i must admit i bought this book because i liked the cover, and wasn't sure what to expect. i am challenged in the language of fine dining, and have zero experience working in a restaurant, but i became completely immersed in the world author Stephanie Danler created. what i loved most about Sweetbitter was the way the author described food and wine. it made me want to learn as much as i could about fine dining, and then eat everything the characters talked about. a good beach read!


A WEEK IN NORTH CONWAY

this year, my fiance, fox and i decided to spend a week in one of our favorite places: North Conway (fun fact, we got engaged here!). we spend our days reading at the cabin, cooking or grabbing a bite to eat, watching DVDs, picking blueberries on the trail and going on daily hikes. this trip was exactly what we needed to unwind, unplug and leave feeling refreshed -- i already want to go back!


WOODEN CIRCLE BAG

briefcase circle bags have been everywhere lately. although i am not sure how practical this particular shape is (how exactly do you get your wallet out without spilling everything?), but they sure are pretty. I've seen plenty of suede versions, so this dream wooden purse from Buwood was a breath of fresh air, and feels like a nice transition for fall, especially after straw bags being summer 2017's accessory of choice.

THE GOOGLY EYE MUG

my morning cup of joe just got a little bit better with this cutie in my cupboard. one of my most used emojis is the eyeball emoji, and my favorite pattern of the moment is also the eyeball print -- coincidence? i think not. it also reminds me of a very similar mug that i used in Norway, so how could i say no?


LOVERS' EYE

gems + eyes + ribbed knits

although i haven't spent too much time blogging (or on instagram for that matter) i haven't fallen off the face of the internet completely. rather, i've been pinning like mad, and am occasionally sharing cool things on tumblr -- the above two images i discovered on a tumblr binge. isn't mustard and lavender one lovely color combination? i usually shy away from purples, but it feels fresh when paired with a golden yellow. since pins are so popular right now, i could imagine pairing this simple skirt and cardigan look with a handful of bejeweled 'lovers eye' brooches.


FRESH PRINTS / PEOPLE
people prints | @themissprints

i've been really inspired by prints inspired by people. from hands to eyes to the whole person, these patterns are quirky and a little bit strange, but whimsical. wear it, decorate with it, or admire it every time you reach for a bit of green tea, you really can't go wrong.

ADD TO CART

every so often i'll share a handful of things i've got my eyeballs on -- items from all over that i am currently coveting: 

  1. a sassy quote candle
  2. great pastel colors in this eyeball print poster
  3. a cute sweater.
  4. the polka dot cutting board: the random cooking accessory i didn't know i really needed.
  5. maybe the perfect black flats? also: the lovely blush lining. 
  6. the specked outside of this mug reminds me of using the blue enamel camping cups from fall trips.
  7. a geometric cut-out tee in the perfect boyfriend shape.
  8. this furry eye-balled creature bag.
  9. black and gold? or purple?
PIN IT

enamel pins are everywhere. and they're all so darn cute, and dare i say super-cool? 

i've never considered myself a pin kind of gal, but i'm definitely changing my tune. i love the idea of swapping a necklace out for a pair of eyeball enamel pins, citrus or crying hearts. 

here are a few of my favorites (i'm fairly certain there will be a part 2):
