In my Mother’s continued efforts to make me a hat person, I received this straw topper a couple of weeks ago… She discovered a website that offers sizes, thereby providing accommodation for my unusually small head. It’s not that I don’t like hats, I’m just not convinced they look good on me… However, one of my favorite things about fashion is that you can take risks, try new things, and if they don’t work then you can move on and laugh about it later. Although… Maybe my Mom is always right… I do think this straw hat and floral scarf will become go-to Spring accessories for me. What accessories are you dying to wear all Spring?

Wearing – James Jeans, Tunic blouse via Marshalls (love this one), Jessica Simpson booties (similar), Pins and Needles scarf (old, like this one), Hat (gifted, similar), Michael Kors watch, Gorjana rings (here and here), Bracelets via Gilt, vintage, and Off-Fifth

Splurge vs. Steal: Tortoise Watch

splurge vs. steal: tortoise watch
Michael Kors makes the best watches. I have one in silver and one in rosegold, but I’ve had my eye on this tortoise shell watch on the left for a while now. This gorgeous Michael Kors watch is $225. Unfortunately, since the real world just creeped up on me, this watch isn’t in the budget right now, so I went searching for a similar, less pricey option. You are welcome, readers… On the right you have an Anne Klein version, which is just $65! I will never stop lusting over Michael Kors watches, but a cheaper option is always welcome.

Currently Craving: Prada leather car clutch


This Prada clutch really revs my engine… OK, sorry, that was just terrible. What I mean to say is, this clutch is wicked cool… I have no other way to describe it, so for those who aren’t from Mass and don’t understand the magnitude of “wicked,” try the engine comment again. 🙂

Anyway, the sad reality is there is no chance of this clutch ever being introduced to my closet. I’m slowly coming to terms with it… the therapy to fight cravings like this is helping. Sigh.

Hello Boys…

Welcome to my closet. 🙂

A couple months ago, I entered a contest to win free shoes for a year from Steve Madden, and I won! (It’s no lottery, but hey I’m certainly not complaining!) These floral platforms are the first pair I chose – aren’t they adorable? I love how they are reminiscent of the Miu Miu Mary Janes from a few years ago.

Miu Miu

Spring Wish List… Round 1

First let me explain that I had to add the “Round 1” because items on my wish list are constantly changing, getting crossed off, being added, etc. so it just wouldn’t be right to pretend it is finalized. So here they are: the pieces that I am coveting right this very minute. (Because in another minute, I may change my mind or want more… What can I say, I’m a girl)

Spring Wish List 1*From the top left going clockwise, we have Thakoon maxi skirt, Proenza Schouler pleated dress, Rag&Bone tweed shorts, House of Harlow gold cuff, H&M floral trousers, Steve Madden tassel loafers, Topshop Sleeveless Leather Jacket, Zoe Karssen Printed T-Shirt, and finally in the middle LAMB pumps!

What pieces are on your spring wish list?

Currently Craving: Sunglasses

Craving Sunglasses
My mind is possessed with thoughts of sunshine due to my upcoming Spring Break. Unfortunately, I have an unusually small head (believe me, strangers have pointed this out), so sunglasses are a difficult accessory for me. That said, here are some pairs that I would add to my collection if my head and my wallet would allow it…
What shades are you craving for Springtime?
