Song of the Week!


It's been a while since I've done a song of the week - way too long! I have mostly just been listening to things I've already featured here (nothing says fall quite like Elbow) or random songza channels that haven't overly inspired me to share anything! Recently though, I discovered MØ and I'm really digging it, especially this song!

What have you been loving music-wise lately? Any great new finds?

Happy Friday!

Fearless fashion can mean many things to many people. When I was asked to show my own fearless fashion, I initially felt a little bit nervous thinking I was going to really have to step outside the box - to be "bold" and "wild" and "edgy",which, in truth, aren't really me.

And then I realized that fearless fashion is all about being unafraid to express yourself - whoever that self may be! Whether you're a wild child or all about the classics, being fearlessly fashionable is about staying true to your own style no matter what the current trends are. That said, it also means having a little bit of fun with your style and not being afraid to try new things! For me, that usually means staying pretty classic when it comes to my outfit, and then shaking things up with fun nails, accessories and shoes, which is what I did here!

I paired a simple silk blouse with a fun printed skater skirt, and dressed them up with black and gold nails, ankle strap pumps and plenty of gold jewelry. These photos were taken back when the days were still warm enough to wear something like this!

I would define my style as feminine and classic, and it's no secret to anyone that black and gold is my absolute favorite combo. Even if current trends are pushing in a different direction, I feel best when I stay true to my signature style. Another fearless fashion tip? Don't be afraid to repeat your faves! I've definitely worn all of these pieces before. But they're me, and I love them, so I'm going to wear them again and again! 

How do you stay fearlessly fashionable?

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had fantastic weekends. Mine was restful, leisurely and somewhat productive, which is mostly what I hoped it would be! 

I wore this last week on a day that started out very rainy and then turned out to be quite sunny. I'm not going to lie, I was a little bit excited to see rain in the forecast so I could wear my new hunter boots. They were difficult to photograph on this day, but I'm sure they'll be making many more appearances here! 

I also broke out this gorgeous new bag from Vince Camuto, which you'll be seeing more of soon! I absolutely love it. I'm not used to carrying big bags anymore, as I seem to grab my smaller crossbody bags most of the time day to day, but this one has so much room & I just love it!
