Rose Gold Watches On Every Budget!

28 Jan

Rose gold has been trending for quite some time now and it’s no surprise: The beautiful hue looks great on all skin tones and can be mixed with yellow, dark and light metals. I personally love wearing my rose gold watch year round. I pair it with pastels and light metals in the spring and with dark greys and blacks in the winter months. Whether or not you’re a jewelry person, a rose gold watch is a must for everyone. They can be causally worn alone or as a part of an arm party- it’s up to you.  If you do not own a rose gold watch, now’s the time!

My Favorite Quilted Bag!

22 Jan

Quilted handbags have been around for quite  awhile and are the perfect timeless style to include in your handbag collection. The beauty about quilted bags is that they can be worn with anything from an evening dress to a t-shirt and ripped jeans. Every designer has their own take on the quilted bag with Chanel being the most recognized. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock- you can’t get your hands on a Chanel bag for less than $1500 and that’s the LOW END. That brings me to the entire point of this post; Most people would love a Chanel bag yet most people could never afford one- and there aren’t too many great options for a well made quilted bag without going bankrupt in the process… UNTIL NOW- Rebecca Minkoff has outdone herself with the Quilted Love Bag!!! These bags are so well made and are priced at $295 for the standard size and $195 for the mini. Not exactly cheap but totally doable!!! They look and feel like a million bucks and are available in an array of colors and hardware options. I have one in the standard size. I love it and highly recommend it!

The Quilted Love bag can be worn with the chain long for cross body wear, with the chain doubled for shoulder wear or worn without the chain as a clutch! Who doesn’t love options??!!!! I also love how these bags have an outside pocket for phone or keys!

Must Have: Mini Crossbody Bags!

13 Jan

Mini cross body bags are a must have in every handbag collection. They are hands free and just the right size to hold your essentials. Mini bags are perfect for everything from running errands to a night out dancing, these versatile bags are truly day to-night! With so many designers making mini versions of their top-selling bags, it can be a daunting task trying to choose the right bag for you. Hopefully I can help you with that decision. Below are some of my favorite cross body cuties.

Kale Citrus Salad!

9 Jan

WOWOWOW!!!! This salad is amazing! I saw this on the Pioneer Woman show on the Food Network and had to give it a shot. I will link the recipe below.  I will definitely be adding this to my salad rotation – especially during the Summer months. The creamy goat cheese pairs perfect with the zingy oranges and the spicy jalepenos! I highly suggest this salad- adjust it to your tastes and make it your own. I adjusted the recipe slightly.

*I used garlic salt instead of regular salt.

*I skipped the spoon of sugar

*I used oranges- for the dressing and for the actual salad

*I added walnuts

*I used my favorite Earthbound Farm boxed baby Kale from sprouts-no chopping necessary

Timeless Monogrammed Handbags!

9 Jan

Who doesn’t love a monogrammed bag- or monogrammed anything for that matter?  I can’t exactly put my finger on why, but I just love slapping my initials on any accessory  that I can. This post focuses on two of my favorite timeless carryalls that will be around for seasons to come. Both of these classic shaped bags have top handles for handheld wear as well as a cross body strap for hands free wear(perfect for busy moms). They are both available in an assortment of rich colors and are made of supple leather. The bags are large enough to hold everything but not too oversized or bulky.  If you’ve been looking for an investment bag that won’t go out of style anytime soon- these are the bags for you. They make a statement without being too “showy” or over the top, making them the perfect bags whether you’re a ‘fancy’ or ‘casual’ fashionista.

Must Have Bracelet!

5 Jan

I have been wearing my hinged glider bracelets for a couple of years now. I purchased the rose gold toned one from H&M and the gold tone one from Nordstrom.

Sadly, they have both since sold out but I still get plenty of questions about them and I’ve come across some very similar versions by Madewell that are affordable.

 

Wear these bracelets alone or stacked!
