I love being from the Midwest. Like most Ohioan’s I am proud of my city, my state, and my region. I’ve never considered moving out West and I’m not a “Summer girl”. I love all the seasons the Midwest has to offer and if you’re from Ohio you get all of those seasons in one day. Sure, I like warm weather and all that it brings but I’ve always been privy to the cold. I love Fall (as you know all white girls do) and Winter. Yes, you’ll hear me bitch about the freezing temperatures and the snow, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still harbor a deep love for the cold weather months.

Fall is by far my favorite. I love everything it brings to the table. Cooler temperatures, pumpkin flavored everything, scary movies, mulled wine, football (by football I mean drinking beer at OSU tailgates), cozy fires, and so on and so on. My favorite thing however, is SURPRISE, the fashion. Who doesn’t love a good pair of Frye boots and a slouchy sweater? I think what I love most about Fall fashion is that it’s comfortable. It’s not cold enough for a puffy Northface coat, but you’re also not expected to wear a miniskirt and high heels either. Maybe my laziness is the reason I love Fall so much? If that’s the case, dear God please make it Fall all year round! ;)

Below I have provided some of the Fall-spiration pins I’ve been pinning! I hope you enjoy!



Line to Love-Tohni Bekka

October 3, 2014 — 2 Comments

Today’s Line to Love series is featuring Tohni Bekka clutches. I’ve been so into clutches lately. I haven’t carried a purse in over two months. I feel so much more chic and sophisticated when I carry a clutch as opposed to carrying around a huge purse that I will just end up losing everything in. Designer and owner of Tohni Bekka, handcrafts amazing leather clutches that are big enough to carry your essentials and then some. I’m kind of obsessed with the folded double clutch I’m holding in the second photo. You can buy Tohni Bekka clutches on her website or on the IL Moda website!

Hope you guys have a good weekend! A few changes are going to be happening on the blog very soon! I can’t wait to share!




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!
