It's no secret that Etsy has some of the cutest jewelry, accessories, art, home goodies (you name it!) on the web. I love finding hidden gems on there that no one else likely has, and in turn support local, independent designers.
Which is why I was so excited when I was recently introduced to 9th and Elm - a flash sale site that cherry-picks the best fashionable, handmade designs, allll in one place.
I had so much fun discovering new designers and shopping through their goodies, that I almost fainted when I found these monogrammed chucks. They became my very first pair of converse, and a brand new shoe OBSESSION that's all my own.
For me, finding the perfect transition bootie is like finding the perfect LBD. I want something that isn't fussy, but simple and classic, with a walkable heel. But most of all, I don't want it to feel like a heavy cold-weather boot...at least not just yet.
These are from Skechers (shop them here!), and check all of the boxes off of my wish-list. They're classic and comfy. Plus they feel like I'm throwing on a pair of flats instead of boots. I'm secretly not ready to give up wearing my sandals on those warmer fall days.
Since buying this dress, I have worn it so many different ways: with pops of red, dressed down with gladiator sandals, layered up with a preppy blazer or a more laid back denim jacket. Is there anything better than versatility (and Fridays)?
Have a great one, TGIF!

Cage sandals + white is officialy my summer 2014 uniform. Fresh, yet edgy. Done.
Now that summer is winding down, I've been hitting up the end of season sales like crazy -- both this Zara dress and these Loeffler Randall shoes were a major online shopping score! Shop similar looks to what I'm wearing below.
Just a warning: you might see this dress quite a lot. I wear it IRL a lot.
Originally I spotted this on a random (but very stylish) Boston gal while walking shopping around the city -- immediately thought it was DVF and swooned from afar. So I was surprised to find it hiding in the Zara sales rack last month.
Did I really need another reason to love Zara?
These pictures taken after a very exciting shoot with Marie Claire (pinch. me.) this past weekend with some of my fellow blogging ladies (catch a sneak peek here and here!). I wanted to wear something I felt totally comfortable and confident it, and this was it.
