Summer to Fall Lookbook

 Sweater | Skirt | Boots | Bag
Hello! Today I wanted to bring you a lookbook featuring some outfits to take you from summer to fall. Over the years I've started to love this transition time as it's still warm but you can start adding layers and more interesting pieces! Also, my best friend who always helps me film modeled a few of the outfits that I helped her style. Which outfit was your favorite?

Bits & Bobs

// organizing some jewelry on my gorgeous mirrored tray //

Do you ever have those weeks where you just feel SO PRODUCTIVE? I just did. And it was ah-mazing.

Seriously, I ticked so many things off of my to-do list. & it was a long one. On Tuesday I had so much running through my mind I couldn't sleep. Eventually at around 3:30 am I gave up and just got out of bed to work on some things. Between working on some blog redesigning (a post dedicated to this coming soon!) to all of my other internships/freelancing/etc. I had a lot of computer work.

When Starbucks opened at 6 am you bet I was the first one in there. I stayed all day and felt so accomplished. 

Now my sleeping schedule is back on track (another bonus of staying up all night), my apartment is starting to get organized and I finally went grocery shopping. Hallelujah for having more than a tomato+wine in my fridge! 
 // my FAVORITE new discovery. I found this at sheetz & I'm addicted, it's delicious //
 // working on a new 'about me' page. you can see it here & a blog updates post coming soon //
// finally got to see one of my best friends, after being apart all summer //

Store to Know: Pixie Market

If you know me at all, you know I'm a pro-online-shopper. Really though. I can find you anything you want, in your price range, probably within the day. I have this knack of finding amazing little shops that nobody knows about. & I'm not telling you this to brag! But I though I could start to share some of my faves. Your wallet might hate me but your closet is going to love this.

First up, Pixie Market. You might have stumbled across this site if you shop the likes of TOPSHOP, NastyGal or Zara. It's got a similar vibe and price range. It's super on trend (in the best way) and every piece has amazing detail. Above I choose some faves right now, things that I would love to have going into fall. How cool is that grey tee with a mesh collar?! Check it out and let me know what you think! 

Do you online shop as much as I do? Have any favorite stores to tell me about? Let me know!

The Brown Wedding

Hi beauties. This past weekend I had the amazing pleasure of doing wedding makeup for this bride. Shelbe has been a long time friend (the going on 12+ years type of friend). Even when she moved away in middle school, her, Jenny and I have always stayed in touch. This Saturday she got married and she asked me to come and be her makeup artist! I was so honored and honestly, how hard is it to do bridal makeup on somebody who's already so gorgeous? It was a beautiful day and I love how her makeup turned out so here are a few snaps and some of the products I used. Enjoy!
