Red Plaid

plaid-5

I’ve never met a red plaid I didn’t like and this new arrival at My Kind of Lovely was right up my alley! It’s different with its unique cut and lightweight material which obviously makes it a must. I also have been living in this hat. A fun topper is a great way to skip out on fixing the hair. I mean…..a girl’s gotta have priorities right?! ha!

The Beautiful Things

“I promise if you keep searching for everything beautiful in this world, you will eventually become it.” 
― Tyler Kent White

I went out for some snow day photoshoot fun with my mom last week and this quote tugs at my heart just a little bit. I’m so lucky to have so many people in my life that can always remind me to see the beauty in things. People that inspire me to never stop creating. Never stop dreaming. Never stop doing.

Life can get tough sometimes but keep searching for those beautiful things. It will always be worth it.

Heart Happy: The Perfect Cup of Coffee

starbucks-2

Mmmm coffee. One thing that’s guaranteed to make my heart happy when I need a little pick me up is a great cup of coffee. The only problem? I’m not really the best at brewing my own perfect cup at home. The solution? Starbucks!

….and no I don’t mean driving to Starbucks and bringing it home. Starbucks actually wants to teach you how to brew your best cup yourself!

I’m super excited to share that I’ve joined the Starbucks Blogger Community and I’ll be testing out and sharing some tried and true Starbucks classics along with some new things before they even hit the shelves!

To kick off this fun and flavorful Starbucks series we’re starting with some basics. I loved reading through the Starbucks Coffee Passport (which taught me I was using too much water in my morning cup – oops) and it’s perfect for making notes and keeping up with what I’ve tried and what I love. This time I tried out blonde, medium and dark blends and while I thought I was more of a blonde coffee person I surprisingly loved all three!

The Veranda was light and sweet. Something that I could drink any time of day and numerous cups of. Always a good a quality in coffee! Something about it seems like it’s the perfect cheerful cup of coffee!

The House Blend was also a cup that I could sip on all day long. This one tastes like the typical cup of Starbucks coffee I know and love! A very distinct flavorful cup.

The Caffee Verona I was a little intimidated by since it’s a dark blend but was very surprised by. It was so sweet and rich! Definitely the most flavorful cup of the three and to be perfectly honest, I almost wish I had some chocolate to accompany this cup!

My first tasting from Starbucks was definitely good one and I can’t wait to try out some more and fill up that coffee passport!

Disclosure: I was gifted all Starbucks items in this post in exchange for my review. As always, all thoughts are my own and I would never partner with brands that I don’t fully support! Thanks for supporting the brands and partnerships that keep this blog alive!

Layered in Leather

leather dress-10

This winter I’ve strictly been a pants girl. I couldn’t even find a pair of black tights to wear with this outfit, that’s how little I’ve been wearing skirts or dresses this winter! I usually have no problem with tights and actually wear them pretty often in the winter, but lately jeans and pixie pants have fully taken over! Oops.

A few weeks ago I pulled out this faux leather dress as a reminder to get a few wears out of it before the season is over and it was fun to dress down a little with charcoal tights and a denim jacket. Although, heeled booties in the snow was probably not my smartest idea.

{You can also see how I wore this dress for Valentine’s Day and two different ways here}

This dress was an awesome Piperlime score, which reminds me….have you been shopping the Piperlime sales lately?! If these shoes are still in stock when #NoSpendFeb wraps up they might just end up in my shopping cart! Hey, a girl can reward herself right?! ;)

Currently Crushing: Rebecca Minkoff Minis

After yesterday’s post it’s pretty evident that I’m ready for spring. I was pretty excited to break out the mint J.Crew purse but it also has me wishing for a new spring bag on my shoulder! I’ve wanted a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac for years but just never bit the bullet because it’s such a small bag. I’m more of a go big or go home person but I do have a need for a smaller cross body bag and when I featured this blush pink pretty in my Valentine’s Day post I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it! Now the big question is….which one?! The Blush Crosby? Or the Mint Mini MacDesktop32
