Maybe it’s because I’m an old school catholic school girl but I’ve always had a love affair with plaid skirts. Then Gossip Girl solidified my obsession with their bright tights under dark plaid. Now that is officially dipping into the 40’s/50’s, I can start to resurface my wool skirts from the back of my closet and show them the light of these chilly days. My friend Brianna of, @creativelycrinite, asked if we could do a photo shoot and of course I said YES. A wool plaid skirt, tucked in button up, and winged eyes created this look and the wind added in the tousled Bardot tangles. If you’re in the Vegas area and need some photos, check out Brianna’s work! Meanwhile we’ll be scheming up our next shoot!
I’m sure all of you have heard of a subscription box. It’s a little box full of goodies that arrives at your doorstep every week or every month or in this case, every season. Subscription box services always intrigued me because it’s a consistent surprise and I love when I get to track a parcel that’s on it’s way! But then I started to think, will I really use the items in these boxes? Or will I just tuck them away after the initial excitement has worn off? The last thing I need is more sample size shampoos, and hair masks, and face exfoliants. Then in walks Rachel Zoe with her super chic Box of Style. This sleek black box is full of goodies (over $400 worth) that I will actually use all year long and the beauty products are full size! Oh Rachel Zoe you know what a girl wants in the season of sun and deliver it flawlessly. Read on to see what’s inside this summer box (+ a special discount code) and my thoughts on it all!
Summer time in Las Vegas brings a couple things to town. Once June arrives so does the pool partying tourists, the summer concerts, but most notably… the heat. It is almost impossible to wear jeans during the day. The solution to my aversion towards jeans during these hot months? Denim skirts! I love love these casual little pencil skirts. Make it a mini or more of a midi like this white button up one. Denim skirts give you the best of both worlds; the chance to show off your tan toned summer legs and a heavy layer of protection from the hot leather in your oven of a car.

January… all drizzly and gloomy calling for heavy coats and the courage to leave your warm bed. Practically everywhere, people are wishing for the sunshine to return. But that statement does not apply to Hawaii! Year long sunshine, warmth, and pineapples! Truly, how do I live anywhere else? The coldest times of the year, are the best times of the year to visit Hawaii! So that is why we planned a trip to Maui during January. Because honestly, is there a better place to hide away from the cold new year, continuous gym commercials, and the impending start of school?
