Friday Lust List

Thank. God. It's. Friday. Seriously! I am feeling so jet-lagged this morning after getting back to NYC at midnight, but I'm up and ready for the weekend - just give me some more coffee and I'll be good to go. Are you doing anything fun this weekend? Today, I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds lately - I'm really craving these pieces, and I hope a few of them can find their way to my closet in the near future. Have a great weekend loves!  

Styling your Favorite College Tee

Hi ladies! I'm excited to share with you a recent collaboration I did with The Everygirl for March Madness! My team (go Hawks!) is in the top 25 this year and I couldn't be more excited to watch them play in the tournament for the first time in years! I styled one of my favorite crew necks I've had since my freshman year of college, its been through the ringer but was so fun to get out and wear again! Check out how the other fabulous ladies styled their tees and my full look here!

If you haven't seen on Facebook or Instagram yet - tonight I am hosting a shopping party with Ootra boutique at Vertigo Sky Lounge from 6-8pm. You will be able to shop Ootra's latest collection of winter accessories, jewelry and faux furs. A portion of the sales will benefit the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and THE WALK 2014. Hope you can join me (despite the freezing temps!) for shopping, cocktails and a great view of the city!

Cactus Blooms

As soon as I spotted this romper online, I had to order it! I'm obsessed with rompers, and the ruffles on this one are feminine yet simple. It's very comfortable, and I love the long sleeves - perfect for day or night. I'm sure I will be wearing it all summer long. Happy hump day loves - I'm off to soak up my last day in the sun!


Time To Shop!

It's that time of the year again - the Shopbop Sale! During the fall sale I got my favorite faux fur coat and some amazing jewelry pieces for such a great price! Spend 250+ save 20%, spend $500+ save 25% and if you spend $1000+ you save 30%. This is a great time to stock up on classic pieces or finally splurge on an item you've been eyeing! Above are a couple things I'm debating on buying - lots of ripped jeans and cool sunnies! Have a great day loves! xx

Weekend Denim

Hi ladies - hope you all had a great weekend! I've been having a fab time on my mini vaca in Arizona - lots of R&R, and warm weather have been the perfect way to kick off this week. I'm going to meet up with one of my best girlfriends today for a ladies lunch and a little shopping - lovin' me some outdoor dining! Here's a look I wore over the weekend - I picked up this tee last week in NYC, and it is seriously the perfect slub tee. I found it on sale, but would definitely pay full price for it (it's that good!). I've been looking for a great pair of distressed jeans, and when I spotted this pair for only $69, I had to grab them. I get so many questions about this necklace on Instagram - I actually purchased it on eBay, but it is from Free People (sold out in silver), but just found the exact same one for half the price. Have a lovely day - I'm off to grab a latte and a powdered sugar donut (ooooh yeahhh)! 


Spring Sandals

Like most of you, I'm getting antsy for spring. I've started shopping for warmer weather clothing, starting with shoes of course. Above are a few of my favorite sandals that won't hurt the bank account. Hope you have an amazing weekend!

All Meshed Up

Here is a closer peek at my second look from NYFW. I picked up this mesh top from Zara, and it had a sporty feel, so I decided to pair it with my perforated leather sandals to play it up. It was freezing, so I had to throw on Meggan's faux fur coat to stop the wind from completely ruining my day, ha! I love all of the different textures of this outfit - it makes the black on black not so one dimensional. We couldn't wait to put on sweats when we got home - we were numb. 
I'm off to Arizona today for a week of R&R - I'll be blogging from there next week, and of course you can keep up with my travel adventures on Instagram. Have a great weekend ladies!

Edgy Mix

Happy hump day loves! We're half way through the week! This was one of my favorite outfits from New York. I love the edginess of the plaid skirt and studded booties combo mixed with the soft blue jacket. This jacket is from Zara (its even prettier in person!) and I linked a couple look a-likes below. Next on my list is a light pink leather jacket, perfect for spring! The grey top is actually a midi dress - I through the skirt on over it to add an extra layer for the cold and that way I didn't have to deal with tucking my shirt in every 5 seconds! Hope you have a great day - I'll be doing a collaboration shoot today that I can't wait to share with you all! xo

Smith + Mara

 It's no secret we are obsessed with jewelry - we. can't. stop. One of our favorite new brands Smith + Mara has the most amazing jewelry. You may have seen this pic on instagram - my husband gave me the 'Big Dipper' earring for Valentine's Day, and I've never been more in love with astronomy. 
Smith + Mara jewelry is so unique, but wearable which is super important to us. Both of us have the 'Skimmer' earring, and wear it almost every day - these photos are from an afternoon in NYC. We're currently coveting these rings (recently featured on The Zoe Report) and the 'Straight Bar Earring.' Smith + Mara is based in LA, and all of their jems are made in 'Merica! Which pieces are you lusting after? 

Teddy Coat

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Mine was filled with wine, flowers, shopping and a delicious Valentine's day dinner! I bought this coat from the Topshop department in Nordstrom the day before I left for NY and I'm so glad I did - not only is it super cute but it's so warm! It's sold out online but I would definitely check in store. It was on sale from $160 to $80 - such a steal! Hope you all have a productive Monday!


Valentine's Day Wishlist

Happy Valentine's Day, lovvaaahs! We've put together a wishlist of a few things we'd LOVE to get for this special day. What about you, do you have any spicy plans? We'd love to hear! 

1. Gangsta of Love Hoodie - we love a great hoodie, and this one was just too fun (and inexpensive) to pass up! 
2. Pink Aviators - Meggan has these, and absolutely loves them. They are even better looking in person! Pink is perfect for Valentine's Day, and every other day of the year for that matter. 
3. Be Bold Blush - We love the graphics on this blush, and it is the perfect shade of pink for every skin tone. BB is definitely one of our favorite makeup brands. 
4. Nike Air Max - It's no secret we are obsessed with sneakers, and this pair is definitely on our wishlist! The pink + beige combo is to-die-for, perfect for spring and summer! 
5. Blush Crossbody Bag - Blush is huge for spring, and we are in love! Such a beautiful, yet subtle shade of pink is perfect for every outfit - it really is a great neutral. We love the hardware on this bag. 
6. 'Love You' Cuff - This dainty bracelet would be a great addition to any arm party! 
7. Diptyque Candle - We love Diptyque. Their candles are amazing, and the pretty packaging can be reused for many things after the flame has died - a vase, makeup brush holder, your jewelry box, and so much more! This scent is so delicious, my husband got it for me for my birthday, and I think it's my favorite one yet! 
8. Lips iPhone Case - This is one of the best phone covers we've seen in a long time - get lippy! 
9. Heart Pajamas - Talk about the sweetest PJs - these are perfect for every occasion, we heart them!
