Sephora Fragrance Find: Nest Black Tulip

posted on: Friday, May 19, 2017


Every season I like to switch things up. Whether that's with my hair (hello short cut I love you), my wardrobe, or in this case- my scent!

One thing that remains the same is the fact that Sephora will always be my go-to for finding new fragrances. Ok I know what you're thinking...why? Finding a new scent can be tough so the trick is to shop somewhere that has the most variety but also doesn't leave you feeling overwhelmed. I love that Sephora carries all the iconic, big names we are familiar with but also houses a selection of cool, niche fragrances that have interesting stories behind them. You can weigh in on all your options and make the best decision before buying. I never suffer from fomo there. 

A fragrance that has been on my radar and I am so happy to finally  try is NEST Black Tulip. Think warm florals, black amber plums, and Japanese violet. Do I have your attention yet? So amazing!

What draws me to it is the perfect mix of sophistication, fun, and flirtiness. The fragrance is rich but not overwhelming which is major when choosing a scent for me. It's a seductive, warm, peppery fragrance so I could see myself wearing this during the evenings for a night out. I love having a warm floral as an option! 

NEST Black Tulip will definitely be tucked away in my purse or in my carry-on during trips all summer long. I love discovering new scents and honestly when you know...you know. This one is a keeper. 

I've linked 4 more lust-worthy picks below. Would love to hear about any fragrances you've fallen head over heels for in the comment section!

Current Favorite Dresses via Revolve

posted on: Sunday, April 30, 2017


Sunsets, quiet empty roads, and one of my all-time favorite dresses. I love this time of the year and feeling all kinds of "gone with the wind fabulous."

Speaking of feeling fabulous- do you ever try on a dress and instantly wish you had an impending social gathering of any type to wear it to? That's basically how I felt when I tried on this House of Harlow dress. So effortless, chic, and summer ready. I may wear it to my friend's baby shower but the cleavage square footage is questionable. Stay tuned haha. 

With all that said, I've listed my favorite dresses below that will make even the most anti-social member of the anti-social social club want to mix and mingle. Cause hunny, you're going to look SMOKING. 

P.S. Also included links to the Cult Gaia bag that I SWEAR looks good with every outfit, it's weird but in a totally amazing and I can't get enough of it way. 

I'm just going to say it...bag of the summer!




Coachella 2017 with GUESS

posted on: Friday, April 21, 2017


Last weekend I conquered another Coachella! Lucky number 7 (I still can't believe I've been to that many). This time I ventured to the desert with GUESS!

First things first we checked into our house in Palm Springs and unloaded our massive suitcases. When you're not flying and there's no weight limit- I say bring it all! Tons of outfit planning and scheming quickly followed.

I instantly gravitated towards my GUESS eyewear and denim. The denim dress seen worn to death above fit like a dream!! Loved it so much I wore it to events during the day Friday and tweaked the look a bit for the festival at night. 

On to the eyewear! When you're in the desert sunglasses are very necessary with every outfit and another way to make a statement. I had three pairs on heavy rotation. I've always been a fan of pink/rose colored lenses but it was my first time rocking the blue variety. I must say...I am a fan! These were my go-to sunnies last weekend:


Each pair was the perfect weight, never slipped down my face, and added the right amount of splash to my looks. 

Big THANKS to GUESS for an amazing weekend and trip to my favorite desert dance floor! 


Find Your Best Dress: Topshop

posted on: Monday, April 10, 2017


It happens to all of us. Time and time again a special occasion creeps up and we are left last minute scrambling to find THE perfect dress. For me that always seems to be the case when it comes to...weddings! 

Spring means love is in the air and wedding season is in full bloom. I currently have my first one lined up in a couple weeks and wanted to share with you this look I put together from Topshop that I think is perfect for any nuptials. 

When it comes to finding a dress, I always turn to Topshop first. From maxis to minis and everything in between, you will absolutely find the perfect dress to fall in love with. The reason I love their selection and why I keep coming back for more is they are without fail always on trend. For instance, this season I am infatuated with ruffles. I always associated ruffles with daytime dresses, but hello I was so wrong. 

The long sleeves and bodycon make it evening appropriate but the floral keeps it fun and flirty. Literally exactly what I was looking for! I added a pop of blush (favorite color of the season!!) and some pom-pom heels that I also plan to wear with denim cutoffs and a tee. 

So rest easy ladies. Whether it's for a wedding, date night, or festival- Topshop has your perfect dress waiting for you!
