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!

Happy Monday friends! So, it’s been a while since I last posted on my blog, but all for a good reason! As you may know, towards the end of last year I created Sparkle Studio, a stationery and design shop. Creating a form of inspiration to bring into other people’s lives (besides through my blog) has been a dream of mine since I started this blog. So since November, I have been working steadily at creating prints + product to inspire and bring joy to others. Sparkle Studio is based of foil design, and I personally hand make each item.

In order to take the studio to the next level, I decided to put a little more time the past couple months into creating items for the shop. I never intend to leave the blog, it means too much to me to connect and share moments with you all, but these days I sort of have to pick and choose wisely on where I put my time. With focusing on the studio, I can proudly say that I have been accepted into SoWa, Boston’s open market for art. Starting in May, I will be selling my prints and stationery each weekend at SoWa. This is a huge accomplishment for me, and the next step in taking my business where I want it to go!

So now that you know I have been a busy bee behind the scenes, I wanted to let you know that I will still be updating the blog weekly and will continue to share style and lifestyle posts with you! This off the shoulder bow top has me thinking spring (who isn’t?!), and I cannot wait to wear it regularly when the temps are warmer. It actually hit 50 yesterday, and naturally I wanted to wear all the off the shoulder tops. The pretty bow detail on the back of this top is so subtle, yet it makes the top! I will always love a bow detail. Actually the first date Najib and I went on, I wore a white top with a similar bow backing and I still have it to this day. I truly don’t think I can have too many bow tops!

I love the way this color pink pairs with white, so I added my favorite handbag for spring, this Zac Posen Clutch. How cute are the pearl and flower details?! It can be worn as a cross body too, but the size of the handbag is perfect to be used as either. The heels I am wearing here are under $50, and the perfect blush/nude suede.

Thank you all for taking the time to stop by and catch up!

Hi friends, happy Thursday! So I am going to go right in and say I LOVE this top. If you have been following for quite some time, you have seen me wear a number of off the shoulder tops and dresses over the past couple of months…off the shoulder is another trend that is perfect for summer and I hope it never leaves! I recently found this Bar II Pink Peplum Off the Shoulder Top, and fell in love! Pink, Peplum, and Off the Shoulder…what more could a girl want?! 😉

The top is flirty and perfect for a date night or could be easily worn for a girls night out. I particularly love the bell sleeves- they give such a fun flair to the top! I paired the top with my favorite Articles of Society White Jeans and Hinge Heels, but could easily see myself pairing it with distressed denim and sandals for more of a day-time look.

I have had these Ray-Ban’s for quite some time, but they will never go out of style! The look is so classic and can literally be paired with anything! The sunglasses are current;y 30% off…perfect time to scoop some up just in time for summer!

I can’t believe Memorial Day Weekend is upon us! How are we already close to June?! But I’m not complaining because the temps here in Boston have been 80+ the past week. My best friend Julia and I have plans to go up to Maine for Saturday during the day, and Najib and I plan to go biking in the Cape on Sunday! What plans do you all have for the long weekend?

Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by and ready, I really appreciate it!

Confession: I think I have an “off the shoulder top” problem! I just can’t get enough of them lately, and thankfully there are PLENTY around these days to cure my obsession…not that I need more or anything. Well, I fell in love with this TopShop top, and even more in love with the price…how can you beat a $25 top?!

Anyways, this look is great for a low-key 4th of July weekend…picnic, BBQ’s, soirees anyone? It’s definitely going to be packed in my travel bag for my weekend getaway- that’s for sure!

I hope you are all having a great week- and an amazing start to the summer!
