Weekend Worthy

HUE Relaxed Weekend Leggings

I made this layout for a Facebook post for work (see here), but I figured I’d use it here as well… Since I’m obsessed with both of these looks and there’s fact that I want to wear the HUE relaxed weekend leggings everyday.

Slouchy and comfy and all around perfect, these leggings bring out my inner tomboy, which I seem to be getting more in touch with every day these days :). Dress them up or down, these babies are definitely a favorite.

Currently Obsessed With…

Chai Latte & Clothes

[DV by Dolce Vita – Gordie Sneakers; $79.00 $39.95 Anthropologie | D-ID Florence Ankle Skinny; $165.00 Bloomingdales | Grande Iced Chai Latte – $4.40 Georgetown Cupcake]

I’m taking a page out of @coffeenclothes book right now with this photo and I love it. But on to the good stuff – I’m currently obsessed with: slip-on sneakers, cuffed ripped jeans, and iced chai lattes (#yum, although technically not coffee)!

These slip-on sneakers are my go-tos these days, despite the fact that they were almost gone forever when I stumbled on a sidewalk and the sole on one foot detached. Thank you Gorilla Glue! I wear them with my HUE perfect edge liners - so good, you can’t even see them. I can’t stop cuffing these jeans, or any other pair of jeans for that matter, and that’s probably because I love the peek of ankle (and my summer tan). The relaxed fit of these ripped jeans makes them the perfect compliment to every relaxed tee or fitted tank I own. I don’t know what it is about the chai latte, but I want to drink it every day. It’s spicy and sweet and downright delectable – this one’s from Georgetown Cupcake, but I think Dean and Deluca makes my favorite.

From where I stand, this is what I want to wear every day, so winter – please stay away, I’m not ready to trade my sneakers for boots!

The Real Nude

the real nude bra

Have you ever noticed that a nude bra just isn’t really nude? It can’t help but show itself off when you want to wear a thin t-shirt or tank in the summer or when you’re wearing a dress that you really need a nude bra to pull off. So what’s the point of calling it nude if it’s not really nude. I understand we’re all different complexions and all that jazz, but does a “nude” bra look nude on anyone?

I’m not sure when it was, but I’d read somewhere that the best nude bra you’ll ever buy isn’t that beige shade you think, but a purplish grey. I don’t know what it is or why, but after a year of wearing them, I can say for certain, the best nude bra isn’t beige, it’s a shade of purple. Try it for yourself, if it doesn’t change your entire perspective on nude bras, I don’t know what will.

Color Names by Bra Brand
Playtex – Warm Steel
Olga – Purple Eclipse
Lilyette’s – Rum Raisin
Vanity Fair – Steel Violet
Note: I’ll update this list as I find more.

The Tee You Need

With big boobs, sometimes even something as simple as a t-shirt doesn’t work (don’t get me started on finding dresses that fit, or the simple and much-loved button down). My college boyfriend asked me once why I hated t-shirts so much – my response was “because I really hate uni-boob.”


[Joe Fresh – V-Neck Sleep Tee; $14 – available in-stores &]

Thanks to Wacoal (maker’s of the perfect bra), I’m at the point in my life where t-shirts in general are just about my favorite thing. If I could wear a t-shirt and ripped jeans or leggings every day, I would. Which brings me to my latest find – no one ever said t-shirts needed to be super soft, but they should have. Joe Fresh has a sleepwear tee that may just be the softest t-shirt I’ve ever beheld. Forget that it’s a “sleepwear tee” because who the hell can tell? It feels like butter and I wish my entire wardrobe made of jersey if that’s what this feels like. (Okay, maybe not my entire wardrobe, but you get the point!)

Coco Said it Best…

I only drink champagne on two occasions, when I am in love & when I am not.

I can’t wait to get this piece for my little home bar. Because besides fashion, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel had a way with words. These in particular are words to live drink by. So yes, I drink champagne on two occasions – when I am in love, and when I am not from my new Marquis by Waterford champagne flutes of course. I got mine from Joss & Main, but here’s a similar (and slightly cheaper option).

The Beauty of… the perfect pout

BITE Red Lipstick in "Blood Orange"

On a regular day, I don’t wear makeup, I’m lucky if I even remember to moisturize. (Cardinal beauty sin, I know.) Every now and again I get myself into a beauty habit, it usually lasts until I realize I can squeeze out an extra ten minutes of sleep if I stop primping in the mirror.

One year, I felt particularly pale and felt the need to add a bit of color with bronzer. Another year I grew quite fond of the eye-widening powers of white eyeliner. Little known fact, black eyeliner on the inner rim of the bottom lid accentuates almond shaped eyes. Last year, I rekindled a love affair with Estée Lauder’s Sumptuous Extreme mascara.

These days I’m in love with a tube of matte red lipstick. My new lacquer of choice is “Rich Red” from Max Studio, similar here.

Postcards from… Venice

My trip to Venice inspired a love of baroque, Murano glass and so much more.

My trip to Venice sparked an adoration for Murano glass and re-ignited my love for the baroque style. The city floats on the Adriatic Sea, it’s beauty unveiled in every corner and crevice. My mom took to repeating “Venice is like a fairy book,” an interesting combination of fairy tale and storybook. From the Realto Market to the bridges and old doors on the canals and the man playing his violin in a corner at sunset, it’s not hard to imagine how the quiet magnificence of this city sparking a Renaissance. The spirit of the city is somehow captured in my picks and all of the plethora of pictures I took.
