What I'm Up To

Monday, April 24, 2017

Watching...Big Little Lies- As usual, I am a little behind, but I just watched the first episode of Big Little Lies and I am already obsessed! No spoilers please as it will probably be a while before I finish it all! 

Listening to...Stay by Zedd/ Alessia Cara- This song has been on repeat for the past couple of weeks during my commute. It is the perfect singing/ dancing in the car song and has also made a great addition to my running playlist. 


Reading...I'll Drink to That by Betty Halbreich- I just started this book and already adore Betty. She is a personal shopper at Bergdorf's and I can't wait to read all about her life. I'll keep you updated on how it is! Until next time, XO

Lots of Pink and More Life Updates

2017, personal, fashion, OOTD, ebay, consignment

Hello all! I hope you have had a fabulous weekend! Mine has been eventful and I am definitely enjoying the excuse to stay in because of the cold, rainy weather here. As you now know, I am moving to London in September and I couldn't be more excited. It is going to be an incredible opportunity and I am excited to be living in London again.

However, moving to another country does put a bit of a damper in my plans to start an online consignment store. If you don't remember, check out my announcement here. Now I have the problem of having a lot of inventory, a website that I was hoping to launch this summer, and the more pressing issue of needing to delay this project for the near future.

Instead of completely delaying the project, I have decided to sell a majority of the spring, summer, and fall clothes as well as jewelry and purses I have on eBay

Nothing has been posted yet, but I am hoping to post the first batch of clothes in the next week and then post new items fairly regularly. Here is a link to my eBay store and make sure to check back periodically in case you see anything you like!

Also, feel free to contact me if there are any specific items that you have seen on the blog that you are interested in! You never know, they might be something I have already set aside to sell. Until next time, XO

All About Neutrals

Thursday, April 20, 2017

2017, OOTD, neutrals, black, sparkly, fashion, spring,

Hello all! I think by now we can all admit that I have an obsession with everything pink. However, it hasn't always been like that. In fact, I refused to even wear pink until I got to college! I guess now, I'm making up for lost time! HA! 
2017, OOTD, neutrals, black, sparkly, fashion, spring,

But, in all seriousness, pink and really colors in general are a newer addition to my wardrobe. My first inclination, especially if I'm not paying addition is to wear all neutrals. For me, that doesn't necessarily mean all black, but more that there is not a statement pop of color.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love that pink and other colors are now a part of my wardrobe. But, at the same time, there is something to be said about an all neutral outfit. The lack of color always makes me feel a little classier in any outfit.

Wearing all neutrals is also an excellent opportunity to break some of those tried and true fashion rules that I don't believe in like not mixing metals, not wearing black and navy together, or not mixing black and brown. When you have an all neutral outfit, these combinations normally pop and look amazing together.

So give the color a break every once in a while and give neutral a try! Until next time, XO

What I'm Up To

Monday, April 17, 2017

Watching...Spotlight- I know I'm a little behind, but I haven't had the chance to sit down and really devote my energy to a movie in so long! Well, I finally found the time and I watched Spotlight. Before you ask, yes, of course it's on Netflix and you should go watch it immediately. It was absolutely incredible and I didn't reach for the distraction of my phone the entire. Quite a feat I must say! 

Listening to...new Harry Styles- His first solo single since One Direction, Sign of the Times is now available and trust me, it is different from everything else playing on the radio right now. He also premiered a new song on Saturday Night Live. What do y'all think about his new sound?


Reading...Wait for Me! by Deborah Mitford- I just recently got on this Mitford sisters kick and bought a bunch of books about them. This is the first one I've had time to pick-up and it is so interesting! Part auto-biography and part biography of the rest of the sisters, hearing about the family and their lives from the youngest sister's perspective is fascinating.

Until next time and don't forget to leave recommendations in the comments below! XO 

Some exciting news about my next chapter

Friday, April 14, 2017

2017, OOTD, personal, spring, over the knee boots,

Happy Friday! I am so excited that it's Friday and even more excited about this blog post because I have some very big news to share with you. As I have been alluding to for the past couple of weeks, I have something I want to tell y'all and I've been waiting for the perfect time.
2017, OOTD, personal, spring, over the knee boots,

Happily, that time is now, so I'm just going to dive right in! As you know, I graduated from college with a degree in art history in May of 2016. Since then, I've worked with an art gallery, a non-profit, and an auction house, where I currently work full time.

However, starting in September, I will be moving to London for a year to get my masters in art history from Christie's Education. I am so excited about this next chapter of my life and even more excited about living in London again!

If you have any suggestions for things to do in London or know any one I can get coffee with, I'd love to hear about it. There will also be way more posts leading up to my move with lots of details so not to worry! I am so excited and so glad to share this with y'all! Until next time, XO 

Mixing Patterns for Spring

Thursday, April 13, 2017

2017, OOTD, spring, stripes, ruffles, cheetah, pink, patterns,

Hello all! It is finally starting to feel like spring here and I couldn't be more excited. As much as  I love winter and my winter wardrobe, I am definitely ready for a change and I have been getting very excited about my summer wardrobe as I've been unpacking it.
2017, OOTD, spring, stripes, ruffles, cheetah, pink, patterns,

Last summer, a big trend for me was ruffles. By the end of the summer though, I was sick of all things ruffly and thought I had put that fashion trend to bed. However, after going through my summer clothes, I am all excited about ruffles again. They are such a fun and girly detail, which I absolutely love, especially for summer. 
2017, OOTD, spring, stripes, ruffles, cheetah, pink, patterns,

The other thing I am excited about for summer is patterns. I don't avoid patterns in the winter obviously, but my focus is generally mixing textures. In the summer, it is hard to mix textures without layering and completely overheating. So, patterns it is! 
2017, OOTD, spring, stripes, ruffles, cheetah, pink, patterns,

One of my favorite patterns is cheetah print. Whether it is with a plain black dress or florals (I know, totally ground breaking for spring, but they do look great with cheetah print), the cheetah print always takes the outfit to the next level. I especially love it with these stripes because each pattern seems to accentuate the other. Totally counter-intuitive, but I'm rolling with it. Big news tomorrow so make sure to check back! Until then, XO



Art in Rome

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

2017, OOTD, travel, personal, art, Rome,

As I mentioned during my Rome recap, the main reason I wanted to visit Rome this time was to see an art exhibition. I have glossed over my passion for art in the past, but I think it's about time I really talked about it. In May, when I graduated from Wake, I graduated with a degree in art history after writing my thesis on two artists from the 16th and 17th century. I now work in an auction house with aspiration of working in the art world in the future- more to come about this on Friday! To say I love art would be an understatement to say the least.

Outside my favorite art museum, the Borghese Gallery
But what doest this have to do with an art exhibition in Rome? Because that is a long flight for one art exhibition! Well, this particular art exhibition was looking in depth at one of the artists I wrote my thesis on! Her name is Artemisia Gentileschi and she was an amazing artist. In my thesis, I was looking at four of her works in particular and I was able to see all four in this exhibition in Rome!

Seeing a work from my thesis by Caravaggio
While in Rome, I was able to see one of my other favorite artists, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and a multitude of paintings that influenced my thesis. All in all, the whole trip was one of those moments where your school world and the real world collide and all of your studies and hard work make sense. Definitely more on Artemisia and art in general in the future! Until next time, XO
