At this point you must realize I’m an avid online shopper—and one of my favorite online shops is none other than Urban Outfitters. I find something I love almost every time I visit their site, which is often. My favorite thing about Urban is that they even though they’re super trendy, they also stay true to all things casual-classic. Check out my closet must-haves, a few pieces I’ve had my eye on that I feel like you could probably wear forever.
1. Delicate Stone Necklace / 2. Gardenhead Viola Halo Headwrap in white / 3. Kimchi Blue Scallop-Lace Checkbook Wallet / 4. Staring at Stars Knit Layered Maxi Dress (S) / 5. BDG East/West Tote / 6. Silence and Noise Silky Banded Kimono (S) / 7. Kimchi Blue Sweetheart Ankle Tie Skimmer (7.5) / 8. Textured Headwrap / 9. Infinity Midi Ring
Highlights from this post: Every girl needs a dainty necklace and a huge tote, and black flats are always in. Here’s to keeping it simple!

So, with the exception of the perfume and soap (which I already use regularly and just happen to be running out of at the same time), this is really just a “stuff I want for my birthday” post. Simple as that. I’ll be in LA at the end of the month to celebrate turning 24 (WHAT?! NO! ALREADY???), and I’ve been daydreaming about what I’m going to wear. The Alex and Chloe sweatshirt is such a guilty pleasure. And I’m already creating the perfect outfit around the killer Warby Parker sunglasses, Nasty gal studded bag, and ASOS vintage link necklace below in my head…
1. Alex and Chloe Sweatshirt / 2. ASOS Flat Link Necklace / 3. Bonne Mere Verbena Soap / 4. Iona Studded Bucket Bag / 5. Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum / 6. Warby Parker Jasper Sunglasses / 7. Madison Harding Platform Sandal
My past weekend at Gaylord Palms was beyond phenomenal. Be on the look out for the post later this week. Next stop, the city of angels!

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted, but my life is going at its fastest pace yet. I got promoted, finished my first grad school course, and moved into a new place. That means I’ve completed four Orlando Wedding magazine photo shoots in the last two weeks, had to write, revise, and perfect a nonfiction essay draft for a final, and cleaned out an entire house (plus a little bit of shoe shopping in between…my new beige Dolce Vita wedges and Cynthia Rowley peter pan collar top are just to die for). Here’s a little peek of my life lately, taken from my Instagram.
The Gaylord Palms Resort has invited me to stay and experience their new suite, restaurant, cabana and spa additions this weekend so I’m off on a three day, and much needed, staycation. Pictures to come. Bon voyage!
I’m adoring the flatform trend that seems to be popping up all over stores right now. These geisha-esque sandals are so
Spice Girl fun and comfortable. There’s no strain on your heel or the ball of your foot in these because the platform is the same height almost all the way through.
YOU MEAN I CAN WEAR WEDGES TO WORK FOR 9 HOURS AND STILL WANT TO WEAR THEM WHEN I GET HOME AND THEN TO DINNER?
It’s a microtrend miracle. Vogue has denounced the platform all together (though fashion is so cyclical that they will likely eat their words next season), but I don’t really care what Vogue has to say because they were loving on them in their March 2013 issue with a Japanese-inspired fashion spread oozing with flatform goodness. For shame, Vogue. Get it together.
Here are some of my affordable favorites:
1. Matiko Lyon Wedge Sandal / 2. Plank Wedge Sandal / 3. Dune Two Tone Multi-Strap Flatform / 4. Asos Humble Flatform / 5. Bass Ophelia Wedge Sandal
A la mode or not, I think I’ll get along with flatforms just fine.
No, it’s not what you think. I’m referencing the
imposter wannabe new Bradshaw. I’ve been shoulder deep in work, and helping a friend launch his very cool new online mag, Little Utopia. The first article I wrote for him is all about my love/hate relationship with the original Carrie’s style, and my absolute disdain for the fraud that CWTV has been putting on display in their Sex and the City prequel TV show, The Carrie Diaries.
Read it, and tell me what you think, here.
I had the kind of weekend that inspires the dreamy paragraphs and ponderings of journals. A long time friend — who pointed out that we will have been friends for 10 years by the end of this year — came from New York to stay for a short and sweet visit that couldn’t have come at a better time. Our beach plans were foiled by incessantly, and random, cold weather, so I did my best to show her the many unique eating, drinking and shopping spots that Orlando has to offer: our most vegan/vegetarian/raw friendly cafes (being that she’s vegan); tea rooms in College Park; thrift store hideaways in the Milk District; underground bars of downtown; the long line of Little Vietnam that eventually turns into the city of Winter Park; and stunning real estate around Lake Davis and throughout Thornton Park. It was fun rediscovering the city (especially when I found an awesome Michael Kors watch at one of our local thrift stores, hellooooo). Here are a few snippets from my weekend.
Of course, Monday has come a little too soon, and I hate everyone who has a spring break. Missing you, college.
