Sometimes less is definitely more.
One color can go a long way, and paired-down accessories can take you on some great adventures. For instance, had I been wearing heels, lovey and I would have never been able to venture through some rough terrain to reach this beautiful hidden space we had overlooked many times, just in time for the sunset.

forever 21 cardigan (similar style here), j brand skinny jeans (available here), splendid tanktop (available here)

Can we please all band together to get Sally back in front of the camera!?
It's been far too long since we've seen her beautiful face! <3

spring preview

The weather was so amazing this weekend. I'll take as many Spring teasers as Winter is willing to give me! I was searching for a new way to wear my cut-out shoulder shirt, so I decided to let some stripes peek through. So far I'm digging the combo, and have since been rummaging through my closet for more patterns to mix..

diy cut-out shoulder plaid shirt, j. crew striped sequin shirt (similar style here), joie military jacket (similar style here), forever 21 navy skinny jean (similar style here), toms shoes for rugby (similar style here), ray ban wayfarer sunglasses (available here), forever 21 pearl necklace (similar style here), j. crew rhinestone and pearl necklace (similar style here), rugby foldover clutch (similar style here)

Lovey, TOMS, and I engaged in a little healthy rule-changing with the speed limit.
Nerdy law school humor. All in favor, say aye?

nylon x me

I still can't get over the excitement that was Wednesday night.
After months of waiting, the February issue of NYLON was finally released! With entourage in tow,
I headed to the StyleCaster + Sebastian magazine launch party at the Darby Downstairs..

Our night included a crazy crowd, sick music, a photo booth we had a little too much fun in front of, and ended with a conversation with THE Man Repeller herself. We chatted about my eyebrows and our matching Hermès bracelets.. yes, that actually happened..

And here it is, my magazine debut! I'm literally still floating on air..

I am officially a photoshop victim, too! Missing a chunk of one leg never felt so good..

The magazine's on newsstands now! I even picked myself up at the supermarket yesterday - how crazy is that!?
You can check out the rest of the shots here and, of course, on the pages of NYLON!

See you there ;)

the bare wrist fix: tory party

from left to right: tory burch lock charm tortoise cuff (available here), tory burch shiny resin rivet cuff (available here), tory burch logo studded bracelet in yellow (available here), tory burch logo wrap bracelet in black (available here); rings (from top to bottom):
belle noel by kim kardashian scarab resin ring (available here), roberta chiarella turquoise resin ring (available here);
nails: essie nail polish in 'as gold as it gets' (available here)

We love Tory Burch. Because we are not currently lounging on the beach in her gorgeous resort collection, fruity drink in hand, we thought: why not stack as much weather-appropriate Tory as we can onto one wrist?
That would tide us over 'til Spring! Problem (imaginarily) solved.

top it off

It's not every day you get to rock a furry headband (especially ones of Lisa Vanderpump proportions!),
which is why I reveled in the falling snow! I also got to break out the UGG gloves for the first time this year -
UGGs are just as toasty on your fingertips, who knew?

urban outfitters plaid cape (similar style here), joie sweatshirt (similar style here), ugg gloves (similar style here),
hudson jeans (available here), vintage fur headband (stolen from mommy's closet - similar style here),
frye logger boots (available here), chenille braided scarf (similar style here), calf high socks (similar style here)

The socks have crept out of the boots once again.
Since their buddies did it, they all want in on the fun! ;)

Pairing it with red and gold tones, gorgeous black boots and a luxe fur vest, it's destined to be a perfect outfit. And those Tom Ford sunglasses? Those may just become mine soon ;)

first snow

5tadsY on Make A Gif, Animated Gifs

Today we woke up to a world of powdery whiteness - Winter is finally here!
Time for snowmen and hot cocoa and bundling up and watching movies <3

As an ironic little twist, yesterday we were featured on the lovely Victoria's blog, Curious Chase,
showing you all how to de-winterize your maxi dresses and get ready for Spring! While
we might have to hold off on doing just that, you can check out the feature here now!

chocolate roll cake

Lovey was at it again this week - he was baking and cooking up a storm! The aftermath left us with not one but two chocolate roll cakes. And let me tell you, they were deeelish. Now let's have some fun - a cake in pictures:

We literally cracked up over the end result. It looked so womp womp. We were convinced we did something wrong, but it tasted amazing! Check out what the cake's really supposed to look like here, but don't be disappointed, they don't have any of our supercool animations. Ha! ;)

Mommy's closet strikes again! This time it's a gorgeous fur scarf from Grandma.
I'm lucky I got my paws on it before Sally did! ;)

I finally figured out a way to wear this safari shirt-dress hybrid that had been sitting in my closet for far too long - I threw it over a dress and introduced it to some fur. This made lovey happy - he'd been haunting me to wear the dress since I bought it on one of the very first shopping trips we ever took together.
Little did he know what he was getting into..

missoni for target dress (available here), splendid turtleneck (available here), american apparel nylon leggings (similar style here), bebe shirt dress (worn as vest - similar style here), vintage fur scarf (stolen from mommy's closet - similar style here), ray ban wayfarer sunglasses (available here), alexander wang lia bag (available here with brass hardware), hermès collier de chien bracelet (similar style here), nordstrom boots (similar style here), kate spade gumdrop earrings (available here)

Word to the wise: this very same dress, the one that we waited months for, is now back in stock on Target.com. Oh, and it's on clearance. Along with a bunch of other Missoni for Target goodies. Shop now, thank us later.
