I made this Anthropologie inspired hand painted constellation globe for my atelier, after seeing the one in an Anthro store and falling in love. But alas, it was $70! I’m all for splurging on pieces but I knew immediately I could recreate it. Let’s see how it turned out!

J.Crew Sale! – Friday Favorites

J.Crew is one of my favorite brands, but as an unemployed grad student I (sadly) can’t always shell out the money for their pieces. They have a sale going on right now, and it applies to their reduced merchandise too. Just use code SHOPNOW, for 25% off in stores and online until 9/20!

Sales are great for getting pieces that you could be interested in, but are hesitant to wear at full price. Sales are also great times to stock up on seasonal clothes and basics (like tee shirts, jeans, flats, etc.).

Read on to see some of the pieces I’m coveting at different price points (prices shown are before the promo code is applied), including a pair of flare jeans that are under $40, a great jumpsuit under $60, and a fantastic $70 pencil skirt that may push you out of your print mixing comfort zone!

Striped Skater Skirt – What I Wore

I saw this striped fabric on the sale rack while shopping with my mom and I HAD to have it.

I instantly fell in love (again). Read on to see the details! Continue Reading

Bohemian and Elegant – What I Wore

Friday night is our date night. I really wanted to take advantage of the warm weather, a summery gold and cream palette and colorful wall art. For the longest time I’ve been trying to get a outfit shoot with this polka dot wall. The pictures that came from it are my favorites.The whole outfit is pretty simple, but it packs a punch. The white and gold looks great against the bright backdrop. Read on to see more fun pictures and outfit details! Continue Reading
