Since DC got hit with a tiny snow storm a few days ago, I have yet to leave the house or my pjs for that matter. Yesterday, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed & needed to get out of the house. So I decided to throw on my new comfy oversized striped sweater from Shop RiffRaff, Aeropostale boyfriend jeans, these adorable nude Emmy flats from Sole Society (which also come in black + navy!) & the Sole Society Sia bag to run some errands in the city. This Sia bag arrived while I was out of town & man is it amazing. It can hold just about everything & the bottom has a secret compartment, meant to hold a pair of shoes (my kinda bag!). Since I know you are oogling over this amazing bag, I wanted to let you in on a little secret! I have teamed up with Sole Society to giveaway your choice of Handbag, Choice & Accessory! That's right - you get to pick 3 Sole Society items of your choice!

DIY: J.Crew Etta Prints


If you are like me, then you might have a slight obsession with the J. Crew Etta Pumps.  I don't own a pair, yet but they have certainly been on my wish list for some time now. Personally, I get super giddy every time a  J. Crew Style Guide arrives in the mail. & a while back the p e r f e c t style guide arrived & I just couldn't part with it. Last week, I was going through everything in my office & decluttering my life & came across the J. Crew Italian Shoe Collection style guide & decided to tear out some of the pages & frame them. They fit perfectly in my already purchased Ikea frames that I had sitting around the house. I still need to get them up on my gallery wall, but for now they are sitting pretty in my office.
