How can it possibly be Thursday already?! This week has flown! As I mentioned on Monday, the fella & I bought our first house!! We closed officially on Friday, spent the weekend painting, and then moved in mostly Tuesday & Wednesday. It is still complete chaos and we are still trying to clean the last of our old town house rental and I am so looking forward to just being done with that so we can focus our efforts on our new home! Exciting times!

This was the only outfit I managed to photograph last week! I'm sporting a few new-ish pieces here - I've been on the hunt for a black & white striped long sleeved tee for far too long, so I snapped this one up immediately when I saw it at Joe Fresh. I also recently picked up this black skater skirt from Zara, as this is an absolute staple in my fall & winter wardrobe! I have one but find it a little bit too short sometimes, so I ordered this one with the hopes of it being a bit longer and I'm really happy with it!

And last but certainly not least is this gorgeous new Riley tote from Vince Camuto. I have been carrying this around non stop & just love it! I wore it in this post, too, but didn't have many photos I was happy with so wanted to share it with you again! I wear it a lot as a cross body bag too, which is super convenient! Keep an eye on their blog, The Crest, for a feature of this outfit! 

I hope you all are having a great week so far! I'm looking forward to catching up with all of your blogs as we get settled! xo!

The Kate Spade Glitter Keds are BACK!

Kate Spade Glitter Champion Keds

THEY'RE BACK! The Kate Spade Glitter Keds are back in stock and in a bunch of fun new colors! I have the gold ones from last year, and I truly wore them to death. I wore them on vacation for two weeks and then like every other day for the rest of the summer. I'm truly contemplating getting another pair because mine were a size too big (they were the last ones, and I couldn't resist, even if they weren't my real size) and I wore them so much I could use a fresh pair. 

These are probably my favorite shoes ever so I just wanted to share the love and let you know that after being sold out everywhere last year, they are back. And they're beautiful. 

Which color is your fave?

Making a House a Home


Surprise! We bought a house! We've had this in the works the last couple months but for some reason didn't want to say anything here on the blog or on social media until it was 100% done! We closed on Friday, and I am so excited to settle into our little 1950's post-war house. It's little & cute, it's got lots of character, but has been totally renovated so feels nice & new at the same time. I think we will be very happy there and, as you can imagine, I have been perusing pinterest like crazy looking for decor inspiration.

We spent the whole weekend painting (note: painting a kitchen is hard! So many awkward angles!) and I'm thrilled with the results. Now comes the big job - actually moving! Ack. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us but I just wanted to pop in and share my excitement with you! You can find our cheesy "first home" photo here. ;) 

Hope you all had a great weekend! xo!
