Put your label on this look:

Pop of Red


I’m definitely a red lip advocate.  There’s not a day that goes by without a little color on my lips, but ruby-red lipstick instantly makes me feel more glamorous and pulled together, no matter what my outfit is.  I teamed up with the Cherry Hill Mall recently to talk red lips for fall, but I’m honestly a fan of crimson lips regardless of the season.

My Own Rock and Roll


The bf has a vintage Ramones tee that I’ve unsuccessfully tried to swipe a few times; somehow whenever I try to migrate it to my closet he suddenly wants to wear it, go figure.  I finally decided to find my own, similar tee.  It may not be vintage like his, but it’s pretty darn soft and still has those rock and roll vibes.

Movie Daze


A blend of eye-chatchingly bright colors and oversized prints is the epitome of a fun summer date look, wouldn’t you agree?  It might seem crazy to pile on so many bold pieces but that’s kind of the appeal.  Sometimes you just have to dive right in and totally mix it up.

Mermaid Braids


Braids are probably my favorite way to shake up my hair style because a basic braid is just so easy to do.  Intertwining a bunch of smaller braids though creates a mermaid-esque look I find very appealing.

It couldn’t be easier to re-create this look.  Go head over and see this tutorial (and more!) at The Luxe Look.

Many thanks to the team at Essensuals London for helping me style up these gorgeous France Luxe hair pins!

Striped Slides


Weekends are for casual attire, and since I’m already jumping on the “ugly” shoe bandwagon, striped slides with a striped maxi is  totally weekend ready.  And with a  loose pony and oversized earrings, the whole thing is somehow perfectly pulled together and still laid back.
