New York Fashion Week

September 16, 2014 — Leave a comment

As most of you know I was just in NYC for New York Fashion Week with Lubna Designs. Her designs actually showed in Latin Fashion Week but being in NYC the same week as Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was just as amazing as being in the actual production itself. It was awesome to see my close friend/mentor/boss’s collection walk in such a prestigious event. Although I have seen her line plenty of times, there’s just something about seeing it on a runway in New York. If you haven’t already seen the video of her actual collection, skip on over to my Instagram and check it out! I’ll get more pics of her show here soon!

Another fun thing I got to do in New York, was check out the PR showroom IL Moda will be partnering with. Although under construction, the details on what’s to come are incredible. 3 level showroom, rooftop bar and event space, skylights, and much more. I can’t wait to share more details in the upcoming months.

Thankfully this trip wasn’t all business and no play. Zoey and I got to explore the city and do fun blogger things. We ate brunch at Jack’s Wife Freda which is a huge blogger spot. I had the green shakshuka while Zoey had the rosewater waffle. Both were A-MA-ZING! Of course we couldn’t skip the cantaloupe mimosa which was also incredible. From there we shopped around Soho, took some blogger pics, and then ended up at Lombardi’s for the most amazing pizza I’ve ever had. I actually can’t stop thinking of it. Yum! We ended the night with drinks and hookah in Manhattan. It was the perfect ending to a perfect trip.

I can’t wait to go back! Below are pics from my outfit on Saturday! Enjoy!

Hello, September!

September 4, 2014 — Leave a comment

Happy September! :) Being a white girl, I am especially excited for September. I love boots, cozy knits, and most of all PUMPKIN FLAVORED EVERYTHING. Go ahead and judge me, I’m just your basic bitch. ;)

Although it is September, the weather still resembles that of July temperatures so in the meantime I will be wearing sundresses and shorts until this god awful heat goes away. I bought this dress on a whim right before I left for vacation 2 weeks ago. I picked it up from Target because I was in need of one more dress and didn’t really look at it. Come to find out… I love it! It fits like a glove and is so simple yet so chic. On vacation I wore it with my favorite BaubleBar Lariat and basic sandal because I don’t like getting fancy on vacation. When I wore it out in Columbus I of course paired it with a vintage floppy hat and my roommates awesome Vince Camuto shoes. I felt it was a very “Girl About Town” look.

What are your plans for September? I’ll be headed to NYFW next week and then a wedding the following week, but I do plan to start doing some of my favorite Fall activities soon!

Until next time… :)

Fall Flannel

August 29, 2014 — Leave a comment

So this post was supposed to go out yesterday, however I had some technical difficulties. Sorry about that! Anyway, back to the clothes. I love, love, love this Rails LA flannel from Rowe Boutique. It’s SO soft and more comfortable than a t-shirt. I love the oversized shape of it as well. So perfect for fall. They have so many colors and long sleeve options as well. I can’t wait to stock up! I paired my flannel with some white skinnies and my favorite bib necklace for a casual but dressy feel. I love my bracelets as well. All of them were bought for me for my birthday! I really have the best friends! :)

What do you guys have on the agenda this weekend? Anyone going to FMMF? I’ll be there with IL Moda working our retail booth in the Convention Center! :) Hope to see you there!

Currently Coveting

August 27, 2014 — 4 Comments


I think “Currently Coveting” posts are my favorite posts. Who doesn’t love making a wishlist? I mean we’ve been making them for Santa (or whomever brought you presents around the holidays) since we learned to write. I’m also a sucker for other’s covet lists. I love seeing what fellow bloggers are gushing over. I love exploring new brands that I might have never heard of had they not written about them. With that being said, I hop you enjoy mine!

1. Luciana Prints. I LOVE this quote. I’m so guilty of all three. It’s a reminder to me to step back and really think about what I’m getting ready to say. It was a hard choice on which one of her prints to feature. I want them all. I already own 2 shirts from her line and I’m sure there will be more.

2. Lush Mint Julip Lip Scrub. I am such a lipstick wearer. Especially bright, vibrant colors, however I always feel like lipstick emphasizes every flaw in my lips. I constantly have chapped lips and I heard from a friend that this stuff does wonders. I can’t wait to check it out!

3. Elleon Velvet Turban. Gah, I love turbans. I think they are so chic and SO in this fall. I love the navy color of this and I think it’s so appropriate for fall. I’m kind of digging a white one or a jade color as well. I love that they’re velvet as well. It gives it a distinct touch.

4. Josie Maran Argan Oil. I have been wanting to try this stuff out for months (maybe years) now. Every person I’ve talked to that uses it RAVES about it. Since entering my mid/late 20′s, I’ve been on a mission to protect my skin. Argan oil is supposed to give your skin a healthy glow. You can also use it on your nails and hair. A big hit all around.

5. LNA Clothing Sweatpants. This fall I am ALL about staying comfortable. Oversized sweaters, leggings, and boots are all at the top of my list, however I can’t get over how chic these sweatpants are. I can totally see myself rocking these on a Friday night with a pair of heels. What do you think?

6. Bohindi Namaste Necklace. Bohindi is a chic, trendy boutique in Upper Arlington with the most AMAZE jewelry ever. I want everything however I’ve had my eye on this “Namaste” necklace for a while. The deeper I get into my yoga practice, the more I want to flaunt it. It’s also a reminder to keep calm in situations that I really just want to go apeshit.

I hope you guys enjoyed this volume of “Currently Coveting”! What are some things on your current wish list?!

I’m so sad to say this is my last “Line to Love” post with Lubna Designs. I’ve really enjoyed sampling her blazer collection the past few weeks. Today’s post features a gorgeous Chanel inspired jacket. I really love the sleeve details and the gorgeous white color. I wore this exact outfit to the IL Moda launch party and I felt very couture all night. This jacket can also be dressed down with a pair of jean shorts and black leather sandals to give it a more laid back vibe.

I hope you enjoyed my first “Line to Love” series! If you have any suggestions on who I should check out next (clothing, jewelry, accessories, etc.) leave a comment on the blog!
