Signs of Spring

The weather has been beautiful lately: sunny skies, low winds, and high temps (if you count 40-50 degrees as high). Now that some of the snow has melted, I've been able to ditch my bulky winter coats and snow boots in exchange for lighter layers and cute flats. I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that spring is just around the corner!

Healthy(ish) Treats

With spring break quickly approaching, I'm trying to curb my massive sweet tooth with some slightly healthier options. I have a really hard time cutting out desserts, but when I have some of these foods on hand I don't feel like I'm depriving myself.

Shoe Crush

I've had my eye on some new pairs of shoes lately, so I thought I'd make a quick post to share which ones caught my attention.

Clockwise, from top left:
  1. Steve Madden Cyylo Loafer: As you can probably tell, I'm on the hunt for a good pair of loafers. I think they're such a sleek and classy wardrobe stable that work with both dressy and casual outfits. I definitely want to try these on in-store to make sure I find a pair that lets me walk more than a few blocks without getting blisters
  2. Bellini Brittany Velvet Loafer: A more fun take on loafers, I love that this pair has both leopard print and tassels but doesn't look tacky
  3. Banana Republic Scalloped Robin Ballet Flat: I'm obsessed with the scalloped detailing on these!! I have another pair of leather flats from Banana that have broken in really nicely. They also have 40% promotions fairly regularly, which would put these at about $60. I would get a ton of wear out of these at work, so I'd say that price isn't bad at all for such a staple shoe
  4. Adidas NEO Courtesy Sneaker: I already mentioned these in my Valentine's Day Gift Guide, but I think these are such a cute take on the sneaker trend. Not to mention they're extremely practical for walking to class, running errands, etc
  5. Charles by Charles David Gunter Over the Knee Boot: I am struggling to find a good pair of over the knee boots. I saw these in DSW and loved the black suede and the low heel. The wide calf version was perfect for my legs (#athletestruggles) but they didn't have my size. Ugh
  6. G.H. Bass and Co. Whitney Loafer: These loafers come in so many cute colors and look extremely well-made. I first saw them when the impeccable Blair Eadie styled the pink pair, and now I feel like I have to have them...
  7. Steve Madden Adelphi Bootie: These are definitely a trendy pair, but I couldn't resist the pink/velvet combo. And I feel like you can't go wrong with ankle booties since you can essentially wear them year-round
Let me know if you've had any great shoe discoveries lately!

Snow Day Chic

With BU's first official snow day of 2017 in the books, I thought I would share an outfit idea for those below-freezing days when motivation is lacking...but you still want to look cute.

Sephora Goodies

I recently stopped by Sephora to use up a gift card I had received for Christmas. Considering everything in that store catches my eye, it was very difficult to decide what to purchase. Keep reading to see some of my initial thoughts!

SUGARFIX by BaubleBar for Target

BaubleBar have launched a new collection available exclusively at Target! While I’ve always loved browsing BaubleBar’s website, I’ve never ordered from them. Their prices are definitely reasonable, but I still couldn’t really justify spending $30-$50 on a trendy piece of jewelry that might fade out of style within a couple months. However, the SUGARFIX collection is more affordable than their typical products, and the pieces are all totally up my alley- feminine, fun, and sparkly. Naturally I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites… aka I included 5 pairs of earrings (seriously though the earrings are arguably the best part of the collection), but I hope you like my picks nonetheless!

Camel & Cream

I can't get enough of this camel turtleneck I received for Christmas. It's timeless, classy, and there's just something about it that makes you look like you have your life together. I wore it to class earlier this week with a pair of black leggings and riding boots, and I loved the way the different neutral tones looked together.

Ciaté Liquid Velvet Lipstick Review

For Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a trio of adorable mini liquid lipsticks from my best friend. Knowing Ciaté only as a nail polish brand, I was excited to try out their makeup range and put their products to the test. Keeping reading to see my thoughts...

Hello February

Although February is arguably the gloomiest month of the year weather-wise (especially in New England), the roses, candy hearts, and other pops of red and pink that start to appear in shop displays never fail to lift my spirits. In honor of the first day of the month, I wanted to share a casual outfit that's slightly Valentine's Day inspired.
