Though I will forever love Boston’s cobblestone streets, they aren’t so fun to walk in! There have been countless times where I pack an extra pair of flats to exchange for my heels, especially when it has been a long day and this gal does not feel like walking..I am mean wobbling! When it comes to finding that perfect fit within a shoe, I look for a couple of things. Comfort is above all else. Being a dancer until I went to college, God blessed me with the aftermath of wide feet- so jealous of all my size 6 friends. Such a feature leaves it sometimes near to impossible to find a shoe I love style and comfort wise.

You’ll probably guess that style is a close second when it comes to my choice in shoes. Accessories have always been my favorite pieces of clothing to pick out, and shoes can be such a fun element to add to any style. I love keeping my shoes to neutrals, that’s why I fell in love with these Rockport Sling Boots! The leather khaki is perfect for transitioning into warmer temps, especially with the peep-toe. The sling-back and wedge style leaves no room for wobbling on those cobblestone streets, and the lining is created with foam- making these shoes super comfortable!

I paired my boots with my new favorite pair of jeans. The raw edge is a fun trend I have been seeing a lot these days and I have to say I am loving it! This top is so great for spring. The neckline gives a different look to all the off the shoulder tops I have been wearing lately. Also, mint is one of my favorite colors to play with during spring- it matches perfectly with my boots!

Things have been non-stop around here these days! I’ve been creating non-stop for SoWa, and I cannot wait to share with you all/meet you all in person when I start selling my Sparkle Studio designs every weekend between May-October. I hope you all have an amazing rest of the week!

Hello there! Today I am sharing this J.Crew Off the Shoulder Top – perfect for spring/summer. I am so happy to see that the off the shoulder trend is still in full swing this year- I don’t want it to ever go away! Nautical stripes are my favorite, especially when it comes to planning for our annual trip to Nantucket…this cute little number will definitely be packed!

White jeans are a basic when spring comes around (even if snow is still on the ground!). This pair is pretty affordable, and oh so comfy! I chose to wear my lace up flats for this look, but I will definitely be pairing wedges for summer date nights!

I hope you all are having an amazing week! It’s been a crazy packed month, but I am certain to be updating my blog more now that Sparkle Studio preparation is slowing down. I miss you all so much!

One of my favorite accessories to date has always been a scarf. No matter the season, I feel like a scarf can add a subtle amount of detail to any outfit. In college, I was known as the scarf girl…but really ha! I probably had over 20 different scarves at a time, and would wear one like everyday. Borderline obsession, I know. These days, you won’t see me wearing a scarf everyday, but I still have quite a few in my closet!

Today I am teaming up with my One Nation Under Chic girls, to show you how to style this spring scarf nine different ways! We all have unique styles, and with spring being such a versatile season, seeing how we styled the scarf in our own way gives you so much inspiration on how to get the most out of an accessory that is under $20! Plus, we are giving one scarf away, head to my Instagram at 3pm EST time to see how to enter!

I chose to style this scarf as a bow. The multiple colors in the scarf compliment each other so well, that I kept the rest of my outfit pretty neutral. I love the way the bow sits just above my t-shirt line, and pairs perfectly with the style of my trench coat. The trench I am wearing is from last season, but linking a similar one here.

This look is perfect for the spring weather upon us, and I cannot wait to wear it again during a weekend with my girlfriends coming up! How is everyone’s March so far? I am working endlessly to create Sparkle Studio product to be added to my shop & to sell at SoWa come May! We just added mugs to the shop last night, check them out here!

I’m a girl who loves her classics. Give me a pair of black skinnies, white top, and neutral accessories and I will be more than thrilled to wear such combination. It could be my love for simplicity, but I just love how neutrals blend sooo well together! I found this top a few weeks back, and pretty much fell head over heels for it! The detailing is so dainty and bring so much life to what would be an ordinary outfit otherwise.

I decided to invest in a camel coat this winter because I was simply tired of wearing a black puffy coat every day, and needed a piece of clothing to give me hope for more color in my wardrobe in these winter days! This coat is at such a great price point, and I know I will be wearing it come fall and winter next year. It’s also so perfect for the cold spring days we still have upon us!

I’ve fallen in love with mules– they are the comfiest shoe I have worn to this date (basically slippers!). Again, I love the simplicity of them, and how they can pretty much match any outfit.

How has everyone’s week been? I have been nonstop working, but so thankful it’s almost Friday! Cheers to the weekend loves!

Hi friends! I am itching for spring this week. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a new month, and we are one month closer to warmer temps? I don’t know about you, but I have slowly started to boycott my go-to boots, and just want to put on shoes/clothing that are not as stuffy!

This outfit will definitely be on transition until warmer temps arrive. The color of the duster is so cheery and perfect for spring. The style of the sweater is warm enough to wear throughout winter, but can easily be paired with lighter layers come spring. That’s wear these boyfriend jeans come in! I LOVE these jeans.   So I tend to have a love hate relationship with boyfriend jeans. When it comes to picking out a style, a want a pair that are tight enough to look like regular jeans, but loose enough for a casual style. Does that make sense? Haha.

Anyways, these jeans fit like a glove, and are so comfortable to wear all day long (who likes wearing jeans all day long?! not me!).

Now that winter is almost over (dreaming), I have been a busy bee trying to prepare a lot of new items for my Sparkle Studio shop! I cannot wait to show you all what’s in the works, and be sure to keep up to date with the shop for I will be adding new items regularly here on out!

I hope you all have an amazing Thursday!
