Off the Shoulder Top







TOP: J.Crew (similar style here and here) // JEANS: Articles of Society // SHOES: Last Season (similar style here and here) // HANDBAG: Rebecca Minkoff (similar style here) // WATCH: Marc Jacobs (had this for years!) // SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban

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!

Buffalo Plaid





 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“!

Now…it’s time for a fabulous giveaway! I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of bloggers to give YOU a chance to win: a $1,000 Target Gift Card, just in time for the holidays!

Pink Peplum Off the Shoulder Top










TOP: Bar III (love this and this one too!) // JEANS: Articles of Society // HEELS: Hinge // HANDBAG: Asos // SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban (currently 30% off!) // BRACELETS: BaubleBar (here)

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!



Pop of Pink







SHIRT: J.Crew (30% off with code: TIMETOSHOP) // DENIM: Topshop // HEELS: Bobbles and Lace (similar here and here) // HANDBAG: Angela Roi // SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban

When I think of spring, I think of touches of white, pops of color, and blue gingham. With those colors being my inspiration for the new season, I fell in love with this two-tone J.Crew Gingham. The shirt itself is loose enough (not so over-sized though!), that it can easily be tucked in or tied with a front knot. I will most definitely be pairing it with a white skirt in the warmer weeks to come!

I picked up these Bobbles and Lace pink heels last season, and they have been my favorite heels to date (similar heels linked above)! I love adding a statement piece to any outfit, whether it being heels, a handbag, or earrings- so these pink heels most definitely fit the role!

I have been on non-stop spring cleaning duty both at my house and work- something about the new season just makes me want to freshen up and re-organize my rooms. How do you de-clutter for spring?

I hope you all have a great Tuesday!



For the Love of Olive







TOP: Project Social // DENIM: Articles of Society // SCARF: BP // ESPADRILLES: Tory Burch // HANDBAG: Street Level // WATCH: Marc Jacobs (similar) // SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban

I love me a good spring tee, so when I saw this Project Social t-shirt in Olive Green…my heart skipped a beat! It’s obviously still cold here in New England (crossing my fingers warmer temps are right around the corner!), so I decided to layer a neutral scarf over this top!

White denim and espadrilles are my go-to spring/summer casual pieces. Articles of Society creates great denim for an affordable price (only $54), so I’ve picked up a couple of pairs of white denim from this brand because obviously I can’t keep my white jeans white for more than a day! I purchased these Tory Burch Espadrilles last year, but they were such a favorite that they brought them back again this year! They are the perfect color combo to go with pretty much any outfit, and are so comfy too!
