landing time

A couple of times while flying throughout Europe, our plane disembarked on the runway. As I made my way down the stairs...I always envisioned I was a movie star or of high class celebrity status. Here are some of my favorite "exit strategies".

Who else is excited for The Great Gatsby release? I know people counting down the days! I have loved following the press releases over the past couple of weeks. The advertisements have been tremendous, filled with more glitz & glam than I could ever imagine. I have busied myself reading some interesting articles, particularly on the fashion world's collaboration in creating the magnificent wardrobes in the film. Finally, the soundtrack is just out of this world. Listen below to the new release by the popular voice of Lana del Ray.
And here's to kicking your heels up for a great week!

spring wedding

May typically kicks-off the wedding season. I am certain that there are some of you who have your calenders booked for months to come as friends seem to be walking down the aisle right and left!
 I put together a very classic wedding look, perfect for late spring and early summer weddings. I love to dress-up and think that NO ONE should attend a wedding underdressed. This outfit is polished, figure flattering, and has the perfect accessories to complement both the season and the occasion. Most importantly you will be comfortable from the afternoon sun to the moonlight dance floor.

grass inspired

Happy Earth Day! 
In honor of the "go green" celebration, I am inspired by the color of the day. 
The easiest way to Be Green is to Think Green.

In high school I really took on an eco-friendly lifestyle, my dad even bought me a coffee table book with 365 days of environmental pictures and tips to conserve the natural climate around us. I recycled everything, used a lunch box, ate super healthy; and then college came. 

When I was in college a lot of those things fell apart. I went to a liberal arts school so we definitely had environmental activists on campus (in fact we had a house devoted to them, the tree house) so there was a lot of bike riding, compost piles, Earth dances, and lunch rooms with recyclable plates & utensils. However, the typical extent of my eco-friendliness was walking down the hall each week to recycle wine bottles. 

Now that I am finished with school, I am back on a kick to reduce my carbon footprint. I am eating better, using less waste, and hope that this and many other things continue! What better motivation for Earth Day?

Here's to a greener lifestyle, toodles!

spring date

Obsessed with these pictures!

With the warmer temps, the spring colors, and the whole world waking up a little bit cheerier as summer is on it's way; grab your dashing gent or leading lady for a night (or day) on the town.

Currently accepting applications for my spring date :) 

Happy weekend, toodles!

Designer Spotlight: Birdaria

I arrived back home this week and have spent countless hours reorganizing my room. It is definitely the season for spring cleaning. Even though we all might be busy dusting, vacuuming, and making many trips to the trash cans, isn't it such a great feeling to have your home refreshed?
Sometimes you find that you've made the perfect spade space for an addition to your home decorating. 
Maybe a tray, pillow, or painting would make this area pop?

The perfect place to explore is Birdaria! If you are looking to make your interiors a little extra festive, at an affordable price...this is the place to go. Birdaria was founded a year ago with the intentions of providing home owners an opportunity to add a little more life in their house. With bright colors, bold patterns, and sophisticated and clean designs; Birdaria has a great selection. 

Liz, the founded explains her inspiration for Birdaria:
"I'd come home on the weekends, eager for an outlet to be creative and style my home. I desired a wall decor source; unexpected-chic-inspiring. Graphics and irreverence to reflect in my interior and the modern me...the Oprah fanatic, lover of high quality, uniquely beautiful things and a passion for pattern & bold color".

She succeeds in creating art that reflects her desires, while also being affordable. 

All of her work can be customized with quotes, monograms, or colors. 

Check out some of my favorites below:

Also, Birdaria just kicked off a spring collection of place-mats! How adorable are these for your outdoor patio furniture?!
