British Invasion

Photobucket
Topshop has officially taken over fourteen Nordstrom locations across the country and my nearest Nordstrom just happens to be one of them! If it couldn't get any better than that one of my BBF's works in the department and gives me all the inside scoop. The day it opened I got to be her guinea pig for an hour and try on tons of clothing so she could get a better feel for the fit on all the items (lucky me, right??). Well needless to say, I'm in love with most of the pieces and took home the blazer and peplum top shown above. If you haven't already, you need to go check out the amazing Topshop department at Nordstrom.

My Current Obsession: Pour la Victoire

Photobucket
I have been lusting over all the amazing bags from Pour la Victoire (especially the nude bag in this post). All their bags have such a classic style with a little edge. Not only are their bags cute, they have great shoes as well!

Friday Favorite's

I feel like I'm seeing chevron everywhere. Most of my favorites are the DIY projects on Pinterest, but there are tons of chevron products out there. From your home to your iPhone, you can put chevron anywhere!

Make a Statement

I love statement necklaces. They are the perfect way to jazz up an outfit, especially your basic jeans and a tee look. Here are just a few of my favorites!

Friday Favorite's

I just recently found these bracelets and it didn't take me long to fall in love with them. With so many different choices you are able to stack them all to create a bracelet of your own. They are perfect gifts at a great price!

A day at the lake

Photobucket

I was lucky enough to spend the holiday weekend at my lake house. It was a beautiful weekend full of sun, water, and of course ice cream. I also got to do a little antiquing, I can't wait to share all my great finds later this week!

Natural Accessories

Photobucket

I am currently obsessing over this straw purse from J.Crew, and while searching further into the accessories that J.Crew has right now I found even more things I'm loving. They all have a very natural feel to them with textures and colors. I'm hoping  this purse becomes a part of my wardrobe in the very near future.

Crazy for Coral

Photobucket
I'm currently crushing over coral. I think it's a great color for summer, perfect with a tan. For the daring type, pair it with mint for a great summer combination. A little wary? Head for the nail polish, it's a quick (and cheap) way to give coral a try!

The Shops at Target

Photobucket

If you haven't yet, head over to Target and check out the new SHOPS! The Shops at Target started on Sunday May 6, and it includes five "shops". The shops consist of merchandise from boutiques across the country, from Boston to San Francisco. All the shops are located in the store based on their merchandise (Webster in clothing, Privet in home goods) and hanging from the ceiling above the display is the Target Shop logo. My mom and I were running around the store like it was a game searching for the Target Shop logos. We both left the store with products from the various shops, my favorite of course is The Webster, but Privet House was a close second! Go check it out for yourself!

Graduation

Photobucket

If you can believe it, this past Saturday I graduated from college. One of the many perks of going to an art school on an urban campus is an awesome graduation location, that's right, I graduated at the Chicago Theater. It was amazing and the absolute best way to cap off my college career. I can't believe how fast these four years went by, it feels like just yesterday I was graduating high school, and here I am. I just want to thank all my family and friends who were with me every step of the way. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Vintage Train Case


Over spring break I was able to do a little bit of vintage shopping at a few places in Sarasota, Florida. I love old suitcases and lucky for me I stumbled across this adorable pink one at an awesome vintage shop called Retro Rosie's. I can't wait to find the perfect place for it!

Friday Favorite's

Photobucket

I am in LOVE with these bracelets! They are Fair Trade bracelets made by women in Nepal. Each one is hand crocheted using quality glass beads. Each one is different and they look awesome stacked together, or even mixed in with your other bracelets.  You can find them here, Vintage Charm, an online site that will hand pick a beautiful assortment for you!

New Look!

Photobucket
Spring Break meant tan lines, ice cream and overhauls! Over the past week I had the pleasure of working with a blogger wizard who whipped my blog into shape! I'm not going to lie, I did need a little help in the design area and Danielle was able to help me with just that. Think maybe your blog could use a little sprucing up? Well you're in luck! Just head over to Take Heart Blog and get started!

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Photobucket
I found this recipe on Pinterest and was really excited to try it out because it was so simple. Overall it turned out pretty well, but I would recommend not using Olive Oil like the recipe calls for and just use the moisture on the fish to coat it with the cheese mix.

New Year's Resolution

Photobucket
It's that time of year again, when the gyms are packed with all those people who made the same New Year's Resolution and normally that includes me, but this year I am trying something a little different. I started this blog about six months ago and in that time have only posted three times, so this year my resolution is to make it a part of my weekly routine to post something. So here goes nothing, and hopefully everyone can help keep me on track!
