SAILOR TOP: c/o Kling SHORTS: c/o My Gal Lola (Contact the shop owner via etsy if you want a pair!)
FLATS: Missguided CLUTCH: c/o ASOS BERET: c/o Larmoni

Ahoy! Today I decided to dress up like a sailor - Kling is one of my very favorite brands, and this sweater is utterly darling! I paired it with these ultra sweet, handmade shorts by My Gal Lola. Not only are these lovingly handmade by Kaitlin, the scalloped detail and lace fabric is amazing!

DRESS: c/o Coco Fennell SHOES: ModCloth

You guys, I don't think I'll ever stop being in awe of Coco Fennell's dreamy dresses - she starts with my favorite fit-and-flare silhouette, then plays with the color, fabric and cartoony embroidery details to make the dress really stand out!

This is my second dress by Fennell, and I'm even more smitten: the collar is literally what my dreams are made of.... ♡♡♡

Glossier Mega Greens & Moisturizing Moon Masks Review

Saturday, May 16, 2015


Glossier’s highly anticipated first permanent addition to their phenomenal Phase 1 collection are a set of masks.

I am a huge fan of face masks (anybody remember this post?) and, once again, Glossier has hit it out of the park with these products! The Mega Greens mask left my skin feeling clean and fresh (without being dry!), whereas the Moon mask was so cooling, soothing and soft!

Not to mention the show stopping packaging - their lids have beautiful, fully illustrated logos that tell you which one your picking up without having to read a label.

Two big thumbs up from me! Have you ever tried Glossier's products?

CROP TOP: c/o The Whitepepper BACKPACK: c/o Jump From Paper
SKIRT: Gift from Vi, originally American Apparel SHOES: Missguided
SOCKS: c/o Bird on a Wire Vintage

The Whitepepper is a brand I have loved since even before I was blogging, so I was pretty over the moon when they asked me to style a piece of their Spring collection for issue 5 of their darling magazine! Shout-out to Sophie for sending a copy of the magazine my way ♥!

I styled their Dinosaur Crop Top with a tennis skirt and my favorite backpack EVER by Jump From Paper!

Just Do It!

Sunday, May 10, 2015


Does anybody else find themselves saying "I can't do this right now, because I do not have the talent or skill to pull it off"? I find myself thinking this all. the. time. Because I don't have enough confidence in my own abilities and it has caused me to stand still. In my mind I decide that I'm going to do something in x amount of time, and when that self-imposed deadline finally comes, I still don't feel like I'm good enough to do it! "If I wait to do this, I can do it better," I keep telling myself.

But one day I came to a very scary realization - I could trick myself to do this literally forever. I can't let myself not do what I want to do because I'm not "good enough" yet - because you know what? I don't think I'm ever going to feel "good" enough! But instead of using that as a reason to freeze, you can use that feeling to motivate yourself to work harder and drive you forward.

It is okay to let your work represent where you are and your skill level at this exact moment. I have found when I push myself to try, even if I don't love the result, I get feedback from people I respect and I learn so much from the process. And another freeing thought: worst case, in the future, you can just redo it.

So I have decided my new mantra needs to be "Just Do It". Because you know what? We can do it - and we will!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! Please let me know if you have ever felt similarly. Of course there are exceptions to this "rule", but if you are anything like me, this feeling can snowball into not doing any of the things I want to do...! (Like drawing or even riding a horse...)

I hope you are having a beautiful weekend! Sharing a quick little #ootd post today - this Pixie Market dress is so cute with it's 70s floral print and beautiful drop waist (perhaps a nod to flapper dresses from the 20s? I love them)!
