classic + accent

blue and white picWhile I was home, I took on a bedroom re-do project.  I wanted to transform my room into a more classic, cozy space.  I love my new Bella Notte crochet pillow cases and white linen bedding, but I have been on the hunt for the perfect accent color.  The crisp white is beautiful, but this indigo/navy accent color would look great! I can’t wait to get home and finish decorating. I’ll be sure to share the final product in December : )


black is the new black

 Whether its for casual, daytime or to dress it up at night, you can’t go wrong with an all black outfit.  I’ve been incorporating my favorite black fashion staples into most of my outfits since being in Australia.  My new distressed black rag & bone/jeans are absolutely amazing!  They go great day or night, I just switch out of my Newbury booties and into my Vince. suede heels. During the day, a comfy black knit jumper or denim button down around the waist looks great!  I love mixing the grungy jeans with a classy, Cami NYC silk tank and Clare V. clutch.  Oh, and the backpack is on my birthday wish list 🙂 all black

trio takeover

The Céline Trio bag is a beautiful fashion staple, making its way throughout my Pinterest feed.  It’s a beautiful “trio” of three leather clutches buttoned together into a perfect cross body bag.  After spending months saving up for one of my very own, I could’t find the bag anywhere!  Just as I was about to give up, I lucked out with the Annabel Ingall look-alike.  She is an Australian designer with an eye for what’s trending, but also classic at the same time.  Double win–it’s a third of the price (which means I had some extra money saved up to spare!) I love detaching one clutch from the trio and using it as a pouch in my bigger totes, as well as a casual clutch to run quick errands with. 

Check out her website to see an array of color choices, as well as her other styles (I love the totes too!) You can also find some of her products on Shopbop and Revolve Clothing with free shipping and returns!
