new favorite: midi skirt

one of my favorite looks for spring is the midi skirt! i never used to be a fan but it’s popping up so much lately that i’ve grown to love it!



i love the pleated look because it’s so light and delicate. a pointy heel seems to really complement a midi skirt and tie everything together. the pointy heel also seems to elongate your legs and add a sexy edge to the overall look.



using a bright color with a simple, very fitted top looks fab as well. it really shows off your figure well! 



monochrome is a fun way to wear a midi skirt. i absolutely love love love the crop top with the skirt. i am not usually a huge fan of crop tops but somehow when paired with a midi skirt, i can’t help but find it to be classy. 

would you rock a midi skirt? do you think pairing it with a crop top is too much?


the scoop – tory burch beauty

tory burch is by far one of the most highly regarded fashion designers in our time. so many of her pieces are lovely – i’m especially a fan of her clutches and reva flats. it is so exciting she has now launched an extensive beauty line: tory burch beauty. the line includes a beautiful fragrance, cosmetics, brushes and even bath/body products. here are some of my top beauty picks in the luxurious line:

tory burch perfume – $110 

TB perfume

a light, feminine scent perfect for spring and summer. if you don’t want to splurge for $110, you can always buy the $25 rollerball.

tory burch lip color – $32 – shade: just like heaven 

TB lipstick just like fuschia

i love this sheer fuchsia shade for a pop of color in the springtime. there are plenty of colors to choose from and it applies on very smoothly.

tory burch face brush – $48 

TB face brush

such a super soft and pretty face brush! having great makeup brushes is very important. i can’t speak to its longevity, but it feels great on your skin.

hello april! here are my favorites…

it was a toasty 55 degrees today!!!! i took a long walk in the late afternoon to enjoy the sunshine – i did not have to wear my snow boots for the first time in months. i even got a manicure with a bright shade from essie to celebrate the breakthrough in the new england weather… 


ole caliente – essie 

i love this orange-red color. it reminds me of papayas, strawberry daiquiris and inspires me to go on a picnic. it exudes an excitement for springtime.

each season, i like to make a wish list of my favorite fashion & beauty looks (usually from scrolling through pinterest or tumblr). here are some of the things i’m currently obsessing over –

bumble bee bobby pins


an embellished look


pleats, crop tops & pointy heels


arm jewelry (and cute hats of course)


flowers in your hair


bold colors 


braids, braids, braids (try it at home!)


staying dry in style 


what do you find to be glamorous for this spring?
