Gold Watch Stacks

I wear a watch every single day and I already have one tortoise patterned and silver one as well as a silver J.Crew Timex with 7 interchangeable bands that I rotate with each outfit. I think the next addition to my watch collection, should be a gold watch! I have a growing collection of gold jewels but never have a watch to match everything. I am kind of neurotic about having all of my jewels match perfectly so I think that it is time to look for a gold watch! 

Love this combo... I even like the mix of the gold and the silver Yurman! 

Simple and classic.

This is by far my favorite gold watch and stack combo... 

What watch types do you have? xox

Weekend Recap & Monday's Motivation

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend... my weekend was pretty fun. We went to a Halloween party on Friday night and my best friends and I dressed up as cowgirls. I got some work done on Saturday and then we went to see RENT at night (it was amazing) and went all over campus after as Christmas presents. I have to say, my friend Stephanie and I went all out for the presents, we made wrapping paper dresses and used garland as necklaces and bows in our hair. We thought the outfits would fall apart in minutes so we wore all black underneath just in case we needed outfit number two (ninja costume) as backup! Although we did tear in some places, overall our dresses made it through the whole night! 

The cowgirls! 

And the presents... 

The weekend got even better when we received an email from the Dean of students saying that classes were canceled for Monday and Tuesday because of Hurricane Sandy and that we should go home immediately or we would most likely be evacuated. So before I knew it my friends and I packed up and headed home. 

Packed boots, sweaters and of course homework to prepare for no power, cold and wind.

I came across some of these storm quotes and thought they were very fitting for the weather that is on the way! 

Hope everyone gets through the storm okay! xox

Weekend Wishes

T.G.I.F... for me this week was supposed to be low key and relaxed. I only had one test and two quizzes and a post lab due but boy was I wrong, it turned out this week was too much of a run around with a lot of stress and aggravation. I am glad that the weekend has come, even though I have a lot of homework to do I am going to take some time and have fun to laugh and relax. 

Might have to get this fabulous color...

Enjoy! xox

Krystal Schlegel

Krystal Schlegel has a fashion and lifestyle blog which features many extremely sophisticated and well thought outfits... I'm drawn to her low key and effortlessly chic outfits, however! She is so good at mixing a simple tee and jeans with some great jewels and a bag and making it look so effortless.

White Winter Coats

I've always been a fan of black coats for the winter but I'm liking the feel of a winter white to the wardrobe. There is something so clean and chic about a white coat... especially on these ladies!

Loving this chair... because the lines are so clean and open the patterned fabric goes perfectly!

Birthday & 80's Weekend!!

Happy Monday everyone! I'm sad to see this weekend come to an end; it was one of the most amazing weekends I've had this semester. This weekend was the big 80's dance where everyone gets dressed up and has an amazing time dancing to fabulous disco music. In addition, yesterday was my birthday and it was wonderful to be able to celebrate with my family for the day, they came and took me out to lunch, and to celebrate with many friends. 

I feel like birthdays are a time where people come together and have an amazing excuse to sing, dance and laugh for hours on end. I had no expectations about what this weekend was going to be like and I have to say this birthday is going to be one to remember. Thank you to all my friends and family who celebrated with me, love you lots. 

Here are some fun and fabulous photos to recap the two day extravaganza! 

Saturday night... my friends took me out to dinner before the dance. 

We like getting dressed up when we go out, makes it more festive! 

They surprised me with cupcakes! 

In a matter of minutes I was changed out of my sophisticated ensemble and into this fabulous and funky mix! I really tried to go all out, it makes it so much more fun! 

The four of us... 

My brother isn't a good traveler, so he couldn't make the trip to visit me today :( But my mom sent me this adorable photo. Miss him! 

Birthday presents... I love getting gifts that have meaning and are life long pieces. What girl wouldn't love to open one of these fabulous boxes on her birthday?! I love my family! <3

Have a wonderful Monday! xox

Weekend Wishes... Glitter and Glimmer

Happy Friday everyone! This week went by so quickly, and even though it was a really busy one I got a lot of bigger projects done that will lighten the load for the rest of the semester. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to visit Yale Medical School with the health professions advisor at my school and my old roommate from last year and I had an amazing time. The experience was amazing, I loved every minute of it and now I have so much to work towards!! 
Maybe one day soon.... :) 

This weekend is going to be a little bit insane, I have an incredible amount of homework and there are a million things to do doing around campus, 80's Dance, Casino Night, Electric Mill and dinner with the friends, and I even get to see my family this weekend! I'm excited for all of these events, however, this means that I need to be extremely productive tomorrow!! 

Here are a few glittery Friday Favorites that I came across this week! 
How adorable is this?!?!

Festive, fabulous pumpkins! 

Simple and sophisticated. 

My favorite is the one on the right... so fun and adorable!! 

Have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

Horse Prints

I came across these photos about a year ago and have been attracted to them ever since. I love how simple and clean these photos are but they still have so much personality and style. They will definitely be lining the walls of my own home one day... I just love everything about them! 

 This photo is hanging up in my dorm room. 

I love the grey hue. 



Do you have any go to photos or prints that you love?

London Wall Designs

I've always been a bit fan of London walls. I have one in my room at home and one even in my dorm room! I like how you can mix and match just about anything and the array always looks fabulous! In addition, building a London wall allows you to mix pieces that might not normally have a place in your home which is always a plus.
