Last year I devoured Karen Karbo’s the Gospel According to Coco Chanel and it got me thinking on all things Chanel, specifically the LBD and how this acronym became synonymous with stye, grace, and timelessness.

When I first left for college I made a pact with myself to eventually make my delicates drawer embarrassment free, a place of comfort and joy rather than an overlooked and neglected part of my wardrobe.

Bootay Bag Review

I was pleased to see an Anne (with an E) of Green Gables like character when I opened my Sephora Play box a couple months ago. Although this bag was filled with essentials like primer, moisturizer, exfoliator, makeup remover, and eyeliner I was a bit frustrated with this Sephora Play bag.

Greetings & salutations! What a whirlwind it has been getting back to Kansas City. I graduated, moved back home to suburbia, I've started a new job I'm so excited about, and managed to get a manicure. I feel like life has been a mile and minute, and I haven't even got to slow down and weigh in on the Victoria Beckham for Target collection Although the busyness doesn't seem to be quitting as I dive into my fourth week at work, and have gone back to wearing black Lacoste polos at the Bucks a few days a week. I'm excited to be back blogging regularly and share this post =')
Almost three months since its dropped and I'm finally weighing in on the Victoria Beckham for Target collection. I  had two major items on my wishlist this top, the Poplin Gathered Waist Top and the Gingham Twill Peplum Blouse. There were other pieces I craved like the Orange One Shoulder Dress with Bow and Scallop Trim and the Blue Stripe Poplin Gathered Waist Dress but since the collection has gone 40% off I figured I'll wait and find them on eBay when I'm craving a new dress.

All in all I purchased this Poplin Gathered Waist Top and the Gingham Twill Peplum Blouse. I ended up having to return the Gingham Twill Peplum Blouse because it had a weird fit which was a shame. My friend Victoria bought me the Bee Print Button Down Top for my birthday, its adorable, and certainly helped compensate for my returned peplum. I'll do an outfit post on it soon!
I think what I loved most about this gathered top is that it didn't look like anything I had in my closet. This piece so unique and architectural. I feel like I need to do one of those "Save Vs. Splurge" graphics on this top because after some investigation this $30 blouse looks just like VB's $265 Victoria Victoria Beckham Empire-waist cotton-poplin top. Quite a few pieces from the Target collection are more affordable options to her popular designer label pieces which is actually pretty amazing.

 Honestly this was one of the best purchases I've ever bought from Target. I am pleased with the structure and the material. I think its versatile and perfect for so many events. I wore this top to an art museum, dinner, a family dessert celebration, and to a restaurant event for work.
My latest obsession are these Miu Miu sunglasses. They may or may not be one of the main pairs Emma Roberts wears as Chanel #1 in Scream Queens, but in black of course. They were a splurge but the glitter detailing on the sides is my favorite part. Plus Miu Miu packaging is impeccable.
As summer begins, I have to admit I'm excited. I have an undergraduate degree under my belt and I'm working for a company I adore. I'm so happy to be back in KC, find me at First Friday's or sitting on a bench by the glass labyrinth at the Nelson. I'll probably be wearing this top. Hope everyone is enjoying their June with big iced caramel machiattos, donuts, and open hearts!

I think watching Nancy Drew (the Emma Roberts one) too many times got me fixated on loafers. In the movie Nancy says, "Penny loafers are practical." I got thinking about penny loafers and the style of shoe that seems to be popping up from every brand. Although loafers are practical shoes there's more to them.They're clean and modest and a bit androgynous. Personally, they are a nice in between when I don't want to wear birkenstocks, classic Vans, or chelsea boots (which I tend to wear a bit too much).

When I was browsing Urban Outfitters, I found a beautiful black pair of loafers Bianca Leather Loafers originally $69. I was hoping to find this pair in D.C. but they didn't have them in store, fortunately they shipped them to me and the pair was only $20?!?
