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!

Birthday Wishlist

Jacket// Contour Kit // Velvet Clutch // Earrings // Blush Handbag // Heels // Bracelet // Sneakers

Update: I totally know I spelt “wishlist” wrong in the above image- hopefully at 26 I can spell better!!

Happy Monday friends!

Today I’m sharing my birthday wishlist. I turn 26 on Wednesday, so I am excited for the birthday week to commence! In years past, celebrating my birthday has meant a lot to me, but this year I am so laid-back about it. I really just want to have a day to relax, have dinner with my family, and enjoy a nice piece of chocolate cake haha!

I’ve rounded up some of my current craves, mainly for my mom ;), but though I would share with you all! Since my birthday falls right after Christmas, I usually am so over receiving sweaters and all the winter things. So, this year my list is more spring-geared with a couple thing that can be transitioned from winter to spring. I love this blush handbag and mint jacket for spring!

This past weekend, my best girlfriends came up to Boston. We have three winter birthdays in our friend group, so we made it a weekend to celebrate all of them! If you’re ever in Boston and heading to the North End, you have to try Bricco. It has the most amazing Italian food. We headed there for dinner, and I cannot wait to go back with Najib..maybe this weekend for my birthday dinner :)!

I hope you all have an amazing Monday (and holiday)!

Hi friends! It’s been a very long time since I came here and wrote a post, and I apologize! Like I mentioned in my previous post, I took some time to en joy the holiday season. It also took me a bit to get back into the swing of things. I am truly trying my best to get organized and stay on top of all I have to do, but when you have three jobs….life can get a little crazy sometimes!

I truly feel that 2017 will be my year to step up and fully take on blogging/Sparkle Studio as my full time career. In the mean time, I have to continue being consistent and creating blog posts, stationery, and inspiration for you all! The past week I have worked on getting all what I want to share with you down on paper, so now it’s time for me to create. I cannot wait to continue growing this blog and my stationery shop!

So today I am sharing my first fashion post of 2017! I love winter pastels, well…I just love pastels in general, but i love adding them into my wardrobe to brighten up the bold winter colors we always see. I saw this tassel tie blouse a few weeks ago, and immediately fell in love with the lavender color, it’s so feminine and could easily be transitioned as a spring or summer top!

I paired it with my favorite white denim, and gray over the knee boots. The day we shot this look, it was a breezy 12 degrees. I have chills just thinking of how cold it was! So, I took the chunkiest scarf I owned and paired it with the outfit…I have to say I love how it turned out! To add in a bold winter color, I wore my navy Elizabeth and James handbag- a winter classic!

What does everyone have planned this weekend? My best friends are heading into the city and we are celebrating mine, Bry’s, and Dana’s birthdays #winterbabies! I cannot wait to see them and have a relaxing night with them!

I hope you all have a great rest of the week. Thank you so much for the continued support, I cannot wait for the year ahead!

 CARDIGAN: Nordstrom // TOP: Nordstrom // JEANS: Vince Camuto // BOOTS: Sam Edelman (love these ones too!) // WATCH: Daniel Wellington // EARRINGS: Nordstrom

Hi friends, happy Tuesday! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite tops for winter. This buffalo plaid is so festive, I already have it lined up to pair along with a skirt for a holiday party this weekend! It can also be easily layered, like I did here with this cardigan- it’s so soft!

I love winter whites, so it’s not surprise I still wear white jeans from time to time during this season. Pairing white jeans with black over the knee boots is actually one of my favorite combinations. Now, what’s a holiday outfit without some cute jewelry? I’ve had my Daniel Wellington watch on non-stop lately, and I cannot get enough of it! I usually don’t gravitate towards black jewelry because I feel like it’s too harsh on my otherwise pale winter complexion, but the bronze tones in this watch brings so much warmth to it! You can save 15% off any Daniel Wellington watch with code “ODETTE“!

Hello there! I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! Today’s look is one of my favorite- bronzed neutrals. I love love love neutrals- black, white, bronze, tan…you name it and this girl has it in her closet. I am a girl of simplicity, and standard colors are always a go-to for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bold color & pattern here and there, but neutrals have always been my tried and true.

I have never worn a cardigan of this color before, but I have to say I have truly fallen in love with this one. I loved pairing it with all black for this outfit, but I cannot wait to pair it with distressed denim, a white top, and heels or flats.

Leather leggings are back again this winter (and I’m not complaining!), so I tend to grab for them to make my outfit a little more dressier. These heeled over the knee boots have been around for a couple of seasons, but I’ve linked similar ones here and here!

Accessories are my favorite in the winter, you just have so much to work with! I recently added this Daniel Wellington watch to my jewelry collection. The color is not like anything I have in my wardrobe, so I was so excited to wear it and pair it with this outfit! The bronze metal is so perfect for fall/winter, but I can also see myself wearing it a lot come summer- with crisp whites! You can save 15% off any Daniel Wellington watch with code “ODETTE“!
