I’ve been in love with preppy style for as long as I can remember but these days when I do preppy–I need it to be bold, funky, and feminine all at once.

*I bought this shirt recently from a Target store but am unable  to find the exact shirt online.  I’m pretty sure it’s this style but the print isn’t available online or something.

** This color of Pilcro Stet roll-up shorts from Anthropologie is no longer available but this style is my fave.

{ SHOP THE LOOK: Long & Lean Tank Target // Green Sutton Necklace Stella & Dot // Adelaide Hoops Stella & Dot // Clover Camo Jegging – CAbi Spring 2014 similar // Chelsea Tech Wallet Stella & Dot // Sanuk ‘Ibiza Gypsy’ Flip Flops here or here }

This is one of those occasions when a perfect outfit is made even more so thanks to the help of a POP of color.   I bought these pants at CAbi’s Shopping Event during The Scoop (check that out here) a little over a week ago.  It was love at first try on…


The green beaded Sutton necklace is my second (of three) Sutton necklaces–see the original here and here.  I LOVE this style of statement piece and that it can be worn 5 ways on it’s own and layered with other necklaces in an infinite number of ways (that I’m sure you will see here in the future).

This outfit is exactly as insanely comfortable as it is stylish and in the fall, I plan to throw on a cardigan/denim jacket and sneakers/boots.

So there ya go….my favorite outfit of recently and I will probably wear it a few times until every person I know in real life has seen it at least once.  Am I the only one who does this?

The Hair I’ve ALWAYS Wanted Is Mine–and it can be yours too.

This, my friends, is the curly girl look that I’ve always wanted but never really had the patience to achieve with my natural hair. Nice huh? Ever since I started wearing wigs, I have felt more empowered and more like myself because at my core I live to constantly switch it up.  Not to mention…
