Pretty Printed Shorts!

13 Jun

I can’t get enough of printed shorts lately. They are perfect for Summer and can be worn with t-shirts or tanks and sandals for the perfect warm weather look. On a recent trip to H&M, I saw so many cute pairs priced below $15!!!  Perfect prices to stock up or to try out shorts if you normally wouldn’t. I grabbed 2 pairs and they fit so cute and are were quite flattering. Below are just a few of the cute prints they have right now. Get shopping!

I am pleased to announce that Target has the Betseyville studded sandals back in stock!! They are the best Rockstud lookalikes I’ve ever seen. If you follow my Instagram, you already know I own rock studs and rock stud lookalikes and am obsessed with them all equally. If you can afford the splurge valentino version, great. If not, the budget friendly Betseyville version is the shoe for you. I’ve had the black ones for a while and love them and just ordered the tan online. Can’t wait to rock them all Summer long.

Bar Cart Style! (Updated)

14 Mar

Hallelujah, I have finally finished styling my bar cart! I didn’t know exactly how I wanted to style it when I first started, all I knew was that I wanted a gold cart with 3 shelves. I started brainstorming and decided on a mostly pink and gold palette. As far as what to put on the shelves, I had to have a cute ice bucket and a pitcher with roses, everything else came to me as I went along. Bar carts are popping up everywhere and for good reason!  They are a fun way to showcase your personality and style, while being totally functional at the same time. When I have people over, my cart will be put to very good use. I love fresh flowers, pink and gold- my bar cart is all of that and more. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement!

  Now, let’s get to the important stuff…..where did I find everything and how much did I spend?

Let me start by saying if you google ‘bar cart’ right now, you will quickly notice that they can be upwards of $500+!! For the cart alone! BEFORE you style it with all your fun trinkets, alcohol, mixers etc. Let me also tell you that if you really look, you CAN FIND AN AFFORDABLE CART! Check out these Prices below…..I spent under $300 for everything pictured including liquor and mixers.

*Bar Cart $150( I got it on sale for $119), Ice Bucket with tongs $30, silver cocktail spoon $3, Silver muddler $5, glass fruit bowl $2. All from Cost Plus world Market.

*Pitcher/Vase $8 at Home Goods.

*Crystal Decanters $40(I got them on sale for $20)each at Macy’s

*Corkscrew and shaker I already had, but you can find them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

*Mason jar $1, pink straws $5, Glass sugar bowl with lid $4, Key shaped bottle opener $4 all  from Target.

*Hand stamped decanter tags $10 each at Etsy shop Seize the night designs.

*Booze and mixers all from Total Wine

*Roses $7 at Trader Joes

 

Styling tips: Stick to 2-3 main colors. Fresh flowers are always a good idea and I really love the look of fruit as well. Fill the shelves, but don’t overpack them. Make it your own, add personal touches.

UPDATE: Pink sugar cubes have arrived and are in the tiny glass bowl with lid, I also purchased teeny tiny tongs from Crate &Barrel.

My Bar cart is complete!!!!

Custom sugar cubes available at Etsy shop Heather Holidays.

Sartorial Power Player: Striped Shirt!

24 Feb

str3A Striped button up shirt is a classic wardrobe staple that transcends genres and will never go out of style.  I prefer black & white stripes, but any  color combinations will work. From casual to chic, the possibilities are endless when it comes to this sartorial power player. A striped shirt can be worn with distressed denim, luxe leather, skirts, shorts and slacks. Your mom can pull it off as well as your 20 year old sister. Every wardrobe needs at least one.

Scroll down for some ideas on how to rock the striped button up.

Bucket List!

10 Feb BL1

I recently received my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag after almost two years of waiting. I’ve been wanting this bucket bag for a while and really love the black/flamma combination, which is lined in red leather. I love how simple the design is with a fun pop of color. The bags are highly coveted and made in Italy in small batches which is why they sell out SO FAST! I am totally obsessed with my new bag and wanted to share it with you along with an affordable alternative.

Mansure Gavriel bucket bags come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can choose from various colors for the lining as well. These bags are highly functional and move from day to night effortlessly.
