Ready for Spring: Marigold + Aqua + Tangerine

I saw this print on etsy and i just cant stop looking at it. It would be a perfect piece to have above our bed or included in our gallery wall. You can get the print on etsy for $35...not too shabby.
When I look at it I feel all giddy inside probably because the colors make me feel as if spring is just around the corner...Can you tell I'm ready for spring?

I just had to come up with an inspiration board to get me ready. I will def be adding more of these colors to the wardrobe this season, and I cant help but think of ways to incorporate these into my house as well. Hope you enjoy the fun little board I made.

What are your go to spring colors?

Fresh and Crisp

A Lusting List for Love Day

Lovely lust list for V-Day
Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Here is my Lust List inspired by today's day of Love. I am very happy say that I can cross something off this list. Hubby and I do not celebrate V-day on Feb 14th. We celebrate either a few days before or after because we just don't want to be a part of the overpriced crowds and festivities. Well, we celebrated on Sunday with a little brunch and jaunt in the city and he surprised me with a pair of hot pink TB Cline flats (pictured above)...I was extremely excited! And today, my footsies are nicely nestled into these pink cuties as I type.

What do you have planned? Whatever it is, I hope you have a special day planned filled with the ones you love.

A Sweet Heart Day

How do you celebrate Valentines Day? Do you go out to one of those expensive pre fix dinners? Do you stay in and make a romantic meal? Or do you go out with your girlfriends or throw a party for all your friends?

Either way, here are some decadent sweet treats that you can make at home to commemorate the sweetest day of the year. Eat them with your sweetie pie or package them up for all the lovely people in your life. I cant wait to make these and I hope you enjoy them as much as I will.

{Chocolate + Lavender Pie}
This decadent pie is a perfect treat to make for your sweetie (BFs, BFFs, hubby, kiddos, girlfriends..you name it). Notice the lovely detail of the crystallized lavender sprinkled on top. Cant wait to make this tomorrow! Find the Recipe Here at Sunday Supper 

{Home made Truffles}

We found these awesome truffle recipes on Design Sponge. Personally, I think that these would be best if you and your sweetie make them together. There are three different flavors to choose from like "rosemary + vanilla bean" "star anise + rose peppercorn" and "Toasted Corriander." take your pick and truffle away!

Have a lovely day before Heart Day!

Adventures of a Shopper

The best feeling ever is when you feel like you totally scored on a shopping trip...am I right girls? Its when the pieces without a doubt belong in your closet and you know it the moment you pick up that piece off the rack. The best part...is when you get all of it for a killer deal.

Well I had just that giddy experience when I went for a lunch time jaunt over to the nearby by (a little too nearby for wallet safety) Marshalls...yup, I shop there...all the time in fact! and my wallet and wardrobe cannot thank me enough. Hubby still shakes his head though  :-/ Its a great place to get pieces that can spruce up your closet and I especially like going there for needed wardrobe basics...If you go at the right time, you can actually get top end designers at a really great price. you just need to be in the mood and have the patience to scan through the somewhat un-organized racks.

I went with a couple of my coworkers just to get out and mingle and shop...not really wanting or needing anything to buy. Within minutes I scoop up a bunch of neutral colored blouses, chiffon, lace, crochet details....and I'm think "good start". I peruse through a few racks and find some striped polyester collared blouses...Ooo "perfect for work or weekending" throw a belt around it and I'm set. Lastly, I head to the pant section and find a comfy pair of Levis 501 straight leg jeans (love Levi's and I like to keep my jeans simple with a straight or boot cut). I turn around to the next rack and see a total score for me! a pair of Kelly green cigarette pants! Gawk! I was just gushing over them the other day in my post on "Going Green" and I actually have started seeing them pop up in photos, ads, and blogs all over the place. The coolest part is that I got them for a mere $16.99... (10x better than the $150 I was contemplating spending) and they are super comfy. I Snapped a photo once i tried them on in the fitting room because I just had to share. The super bright lights bordering the mirror make them look a tad brighter than they really are and they look kind of teal in the photo. But in real life, I love the color. Do you like?

Here's to fabulous and affordable fashion find! Happy Shopping!

Pick me up Accessories

Happy Monday people!! Its hard coming back to work on a Monday isn't it? I decided to give myself a little pick me up from the "case of the Mundays" and share with you all the cutesy accessories I have been stock piling in my image files waiting for the day that I can acquire each and every one of them =)

You may rock awesome style within your wardrobe but what about your accessories? Are the items in your purse as stylish as the purse itself? Or what about your office or tech accessories? I absolutely love it when I see adorable and well styled accessories..... It's always in the details right?

I currently started a new job and I'm in the process of trying to spruce up my workspace. I want cute pens, folders, project notebooks etc. I'm also contemplating what cute laptop bag I can get for carrying my work computer. Great accessories are a total pick me up from drabby monotone office spaces and have proven to be a total motivator in doing my work! Increased productivity! Who wouldn't want to go to meetings if you get to whip out your pastel color block pens from kikkerland ($6 for the set) and take meeting notes on your Kate spade Debra planner!

Imagine returning to your desk with a lovely Tory burch mousepad!


Are you a tech accessory hog like myself? Then you must have a stylish case for all your accessories! I actually have this pink case mate for my iPad and I love it. In fact I'm typing out this post on it right now.

And what would an accessory post be without me posting pictures of lovely purses in which I would love to carry all of these accessories in? Pictured below is the Pippa Modalu satchel in Shark. It is indeed named after one of my fav ladies Pippa Middleton. It's always sold out so get on the wait list like me. And isn't that minty Emporio Armani just to die for? So wanting!

Go on! pick up some asesome stylish accessories!! you know you want to! your wardrobe will thank you...lol
What is your favorite stylish accessory either in your purse or at work?
Just for flavor I wanted to share these amazing wingtip ballet flats....aren't they adorable?

Ok well... Back to work! Have a lovely week everyone <3

Going Green

 {eye candy from pintrest}

One can say that I definitely go through color phases with my style and my aesthetics at home. Right now, I am particularly gushing over all the green I have been seeing. Particularly the emerald and Kelly greens. The color is so bright and eye catching yet it is so refined! Its one of those colors that makes me feel instantly classy. I may not have a pic of the whole outfit above but I definitely want! Paired with gold... you get instant glam!

Or you can go big and go sparkly!

Both Kelly and Emerald green are great for all you color blocking fanatics out there! I'm certainly one of them. I particularly love pairing with neutrals like the picture below or with navy blue. But, I can see some of you go even further with these lovely greens. These pants certainly would do well in any color blockers wardrobe!

I have a shorter version of this blazer and I absolutely love it! It's an instant pick me up to any casual "head out in jeans" outfit.

Speaking of emerald green, these Bracco earrings from shopbop are absolutely adorable with its vintage inspired design.

Adding luscious green accents to your home decor will definitely do the trick in bringing some sophisticated eye catching eye candy to any living space. I love how it pops amongst neutrals, blacks and whites... I Spy green pillows on the side!

Do you have green incorporated in your wardrobe or home? what are your favorite pieces?
