Polka-love

Because this eyelet top is actually a crop top, it’s challenging to wear on its own, but it’s absolutely perfect for layering! Major first day of school vibes….    Dress: Asos (currently 50% off!)| Top: Forever 21 | Shoes: BCBGeneration (similar here and here) | Sunnier: Lucky Brand (similar here) Happy October! It may be a little late, but I love this polka-dot pinafore dress too much not to share. Now that I’ve started working my shopping brain is always thinking  ...

Nail 911

Somebody call 9-1-1….I’m having a nail crisis over here!! I don’t know what has caused my nails to become such a mess all of the sudden, but I had to try something new to fix them. Using the Mani E.R. and NailTek 2 along with this simple nail tutorial my nails have been brought back to life! Before      As you can see these tiny layers keep pulling away. I realized that when my nail polish wears off and I start chipping away at it, I’m pulling off layers of my nails  ...

Here Comes the Sun

“I love fall” said every basic girl ever. But it’s true so I don’t care- I love the fall!! The colors, the weather, the foliage, the clothes- every aspect of the fall season has me swooning.  One upside of living in a place with all four seasons is by the time you’re sick of one wardrobe, the new season is about to begin!

Red Hot on the Spice Island

First, the island is supremely uncommercialized and untouched. From stunning white sand beaches to tropical rainforests filled with exotic flowers, and everything in between, Grenada isn’t short on things to do or beautiful things to see.

High Waisted || High Tide

Buenos dias Puerto Vallarta! Every summer my dad, his wife, Erin, my boyfriend, Jordan, and I all go to Mexico for a relaxing vacation together! This was my first time in PV, as we usually go to the east coast of Mexico (Playa Del Carmen or Riviera Maya), and we stayed at Secrets Vallarta Bay Resort. While the water was warm and the beach beautiful, the Pacific is much less of that dreamy crystal clear blue water that I hope for on a tropical vacation. Everything else was perfect and the  ...
