December 18th


This past Thursday was my birthday…











This past Thursday, December 18th, was my twenty-third birthday. It’s always so bittersweet becoming a year older.. you think back on the past year and feel happy,but also sad that a year has passed. It’s such an odd feeling,but perhaps it’s just me who feels this way! But you guys, my amazing readers, wished me the sweetest happy birthdays! I got so many Facebook and Instagram birthday wishes that it made me remember how truly grateful I am to have you out there who just happen to be a fan of my personal style and taste. I remember being in high school and reading all of my favorite fashion blogs. These girls felt like my dear friends.. but I only knew their lives because of the internet. When their birthdays would roll around, I would feel so excited and happy for them on their special day. It dawned on me that I have readers who are in the same place that I was in before (and still am with my favorite bloggers!) and it made me feel really special. Thank you guys so much for keeping up with my posts and for being so kind. You are a huge part of what made my birthday special and make me so happy for starting my blog! I cannot thank you enough.

Now on a style note: this outfit was styled around this amazing blouse by of course Family Affairs! It’s also like the dress I posted, apart of their special holiday treats! So today they will announce a special sale on this blouse and be sure to follow their Instagram here to see. The perfect crystal blue is what I love most about this blouse. It’s so vintage! I paired it with a plaid skirt (you know how I love mixing patterns), black tights, and my Samantha Pleet boots. Finished it off with one last pattern from this Miss Patina coat! A perfect birthday outfit.

More posts from Rachel and I’s birthday party (yes, her birthday is the day after mine!) coming very shortly!

hearts on my sleeve


I love hearts. It’s no surprise.















How cute is this little heart satchel bag?! It’s from Handbag Heaven and if you’re looking for an affordable new bag, check them out! They have so many great bags, classic or a bit on the kitchy side (which of course I love!). I paired the grey heart with this big scarf (because it was freezing!) that’s from Worn on this day over a dark navy coat by Boden, I loved the purple/pink and navy colors of this look! I shot it on a freezing day where Danny and I had been lazy and were getting a crazy late brunch. I love my sleep so…

I finally also wore this Boohoo sweater that has hearts on the elbows! I mean.. how cute is it!? Rachel (of Jag Lever) actually got it in grey a few months back and I was so jealous I wanted it too. I really loved having hearts on my elbows and my heart satchel together because I’m just a girl with a heart obsession.. I think most of my readers get it though! So no explanation necessary.
