I'm so excited to be guest blogging today for my gal pal Khatu while she is traveling the world. (Uhm, talk about traveler's envy!).

Head over to her blog, I Am Khatu, to check out my favorite tip for packing stylishly and smart.

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.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, Happy Monday!

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. 

Paired it with a fierce pair of cage sandals (obsessed), and a bright white Angela & Roi bag

Fingers crossed I'll have magazine(s) to send to my Babcia this October. Regardless of what happens the experience was once in a lifetime that I'll always remember and cherish.

Right now, I'm kind of loving life across the pond. But I'm also kind of missing you guys and my friends and family back home, this little lady included. 

A quick hello! And a quick goodbye. See you with a million and one pictures next week!

But for now, follow my travels on instagram -- there are some good things happening on there...I pinky promise.

I'm SO excited to share my latest collaboration with Reebok Skycapes -- aka my new sneaker obsession. They are out. of. this. world. comfortable. AND cute. Don't you just love when fashion and function just work?
If you follow me on insta, you've seen a few sneak peeks. But click HERE to see the full feature and read alllll that I have to say about these leo sneaks.
I had a blast styling skyscape's new line, not only because I'm head-over-heels in love with their new patterns for summer, but because I got to share the spotlight with my blog BFF Allie. Fashion is ALWAYS more fun with a friend.

Getting ready for a 2 week VACATION to somewhere I've always wanted to go -- so I got myself a new haircut, a new dress, and these amazing things called 'lazy loafers'. 
Keep an eye out to see where I'm going!
