Romper x Fergie Shoes







Do you guys love these shoes or what? I think they are the perfect summer to fall transition, especially for LA where temperatures never really get too cold. The fact that it is a wedge makes it all the better, they are SO comfortable.

I originally wanted to dress these up with a pair of cargo pants, but I came across a great sale and found this romper at Anthropologie. I loved the color and decided it was perfect for the remaining few hot weeks of summer!

How are you all spending the last few weeks of summer? -I’ll be headed back home to Saint Louis later this week to spend time with family, and more importantly, meet my best friends new baby boy. Cant wait!

Have a great week!

Olive green for Fall

It has been quite a busy last few weeks of summer! Although all things are good, I feel busy as ever and completely ready for fall (maybe the LA traffic will subside just a tad bit by that point?). Cooler temperatures are also on the horizon, yess!

If you’ve noticed lately, Olive Green (or really any type of dark green) has been all over runway shows and magazines. I truly believe it will be the big color scheme for fall – and I am completely falling for IT. 🙂

So, when I saw this tank from TOPSHOP, I immediately had to purchase it! I recently wore it to a trend show event at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills as a +1 with my good friend and fellow blogger Melanie of Something Dashing. We had a ton of fun shooting a few pics together, sipping on Champagne, and watching as the show unfolded.

Guess what the take-away from the show was? Olive green is your color of Fall ladies, also noticed a ton of fur, suede, and fringe.

Below are a few photos of my outfit, I went for a basic look with subtle gold jewelry.






Few things to note:

I am wearing a size 6 in this shirt, but I think going one size up might have been a better fit. I love the fact that this shirt is longer in the back and shorter in front – even though I kept having the urge to slightly tuck it in at front (I think this was due to the size). Either way, I am excited to add more colors to my closet!!

Also, I have had this amazing brown tote bag from Banana Republic FOREVER. It has endured endless work trips, and fits practically everything inside of it. All that for an amazing price! I am now on a journey to find my next tote bag, sadly this guy needs to see his retirement days. It has by far been the best money I have spent on a tote bag! Amazing deal!

Hope you enjoyed reading!

The Rocksbox way


I am SO excited to share one of my favorite subscriptions with you all! If you’re anything like me, you shop for clothes all day long (and shoes), but never quite get around to buying a ton of jewelry. Don’t get me wrong, I love jewelry (I work in the industry so I better) but for some reason I tend to navigate to spending my money on clothes first, shoes second, and accessories last. If my budget was endless maybe I could squeeze in more jewelry. 🙂 Sadly it’s not, but this is exactly why Rocksbox is amazing and if you haven’t heard about it you’re truly missing out!

It is a subscription service which delivers ‘on trend’ jewelry straight to your door, you wear the pieces for as long as you wish and simply send them back when you are finished for a brand new shipment – All this at an affordable monthly price. You’re not just getting any jewelry though, they have some superb designers such as Kendra Scott, House of Harlow, CC Skye and Gorjana just to name a few of my favorites. Above is a photo of my first box set and they hit the nail on the head with the pieces they chose for me; I am more subtle with my jewelry so they sent me a delicate ring and necklace. I also like statement earrings, and the ones they shipped are awesome (I plan to wear them to a wedding this upcoming weekend).



The process is simple, you sign up on their website, take a brief survey about your style preferences, and a box arrives in your mailbox within 3-5 days of confirming. Voila!

Now that you’ve read a whole long blog post about my Rocksbox excitement, there is a little something in it for you! If you use my CODE below you will receive your first month completely FREE! Give it a whirl and see how you like it!
