{Chloe Shades and Red Lips}

Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot of red lipstick. There’s something about the perfect shade of red on blondes, that brightens up any look. This post was also inspired by my new Chloe sunglasses from Ditto.  You may have read about this genius new E-Tailer on Refinery29.com, as their technology makes shopping for sunglasses online, easier than ever.  This style of Chloe sunglasses has been so popular, they’ve repeated it for four season. It you like it, now is the time to score them as they are finally on their way out.

The skirt was great find from Nordstrom a couple years ago by Alexander Wang. It’s a comfortable jersey material and it can be dressed up or dressed down.  All it needs is a simple tank or t-shirt, sandals to be dressed down and it’s easily from day to night.  I think this style was also repeated for a couple collections. I paired a menswear button down t-shirt for a more casual look, depending on wear you are going.

{Home Inspiration – Black + White}


I’m designing my apartment, and boy is it stressful! I wish they had a Forever 21 (actually Zara) for home design. While I know most people are huge fan of Ikea, I just can’t seem to find what I need there. Wish me luck as I aspire to design my apartment just as beautiful as the above photos. Stay tuned…
