Ornate Gems

Statement Necklace & Bag- Forever 21 || Oxfords - Aldo || Dress - Asos


Do you ever get inspired to pull a color palette together based on one item? Well, that is precisely how this outfit got assembled! I recently purchased this statement necklace from Forever 21 after being drawn by its use of pastels, maroon and faux gems. I love that it seamlessly ties in with this dress and several pieces in my closet! With Spring just around the corner, I can't wait to style it with lighter clothing as I'm starting to put away all things winter. 

Hope your week has been off to a creative start!

Chloe + Isabel

Hello my nerdly beautifuls! The other day I got to meet the lovely Chavel (a Chloe and Isabel Merchandiser), and she was kind enough to let Kimmy and I play around with some of her beautiful pieces. I have to say I was initially hesitant about finding pieces to work with this outfit but she had it all! From spring-inspired necklaces and earrings sets, to hair-pins. It was a match made in Heaven! I especially love how well Kim and I's outfits complemented each other (unplanned, btw) and seamlessly fell into a Bohemian theme - what were the odds?!

It's Print | It's Lace

Patterned Blazer - Forever 21 / Buttoned-up Lace Shirt - Zara / Black Joggers - New Look / Oxfords - Aldo / Bag - Forever 21 

Just put the kettle on, about to make some peppermint tea - how good it feels to be back! As much as I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, reconnecting with old friends, and engaging in new ventures, nothing replaces staying on track with daily routines, carving out time to recuperate and being back home - which is what Seattle is finally starting to feel like. (:

This outfit was in accordance with being more daring with my outfit selections. The buttoned-up shirt I have on is made out of the most gentle lace! I love the femininity it lends to the patterned blazer, and how well they complement each other.

Also, I can't believe it is already March, where did February go!? I'm yet to set out detailed goals for the month but basically top of mind is to be more present, positive and grateful. I have so much to be thankful for - we all do really when we put our problems aside and avoid comparing ourselves to others. What are some of your goals for the new month?
