After Christmas, a trip to South Africa, and two family weddings on the horizon, I’ve been forced to put myself on a spending hiatus in order to replenish my poor, sad little wallet. And though on an average day I’m not a huge shopper (I prefer the experience route over the material thing*), ever since making this decision, I find myself inadvertently perusing all. of. the. sites. All. of. the. time. I swear, my subconscious is such a brat sometimes. So instead of splurging on a handful of really lovely wintery-white pieces, I thought I’d share my findings and oogle from afar instead!
*Unless we’re talking about interior design. All bets go out the window when my home plays a factor.

Hello! Kelly of Fabulous K here. I’m thrilled to be guest blogging for Jacquelyn while she’s away on her South African adventure. Today I want to share one of my favorite color crush combos: blush + gold. I went through a phase where I was kind of over shades of pink, but am now back on the bandwagon thanks to the pretty blush hue that’s popping up everywhere. I especially love it paired with glittery, metallic golds – it’s modern and girly without being too over the top. Are you a fan of this perfect pairing? Which item is your favorite?

For the first time in my entire life, I’m having difficulty coming around to the idea of fall. Normally I’m all about the crisp, cozy season, I’d even go so far as to say that it’s my favourite of them all. But this year? Those nostalgic feelings that typically surround the next few months seem to have gone missing. I thought that maybe if I compiled a round up of fall-like essentials it’d improve my excitement level. And though I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to my sundresses, I have to admit that it helped (a little). Apparently cozy throws, soft blush capes and stacks of books will do that to a girl.

Alright you guys. It’s been well documented around here in the past that fashion is not exactly my forte. I will never be the one to set trends or be the first to pick out the latest and greatest. That being said, there’s no denying that I adore a great top and a beautiful bag like the rest of em’. And now that we’re into the thick of summer, I thought it’d be fun to round-up a few of my summer must-haves. For me? It’s all about comfort. Pieces that you can throw on in a pinch, will keep you cool under the hot sun, and make you feel instantly chic with little to no effort at all.
1. Turkish Towel from Casa | 2. Bikini from J. Crew (on sale!) | 3. Fold up Flats from Tieks (so comfy) | 4. Sandal from Zappos | 5. Chevron Dress from Mod Cloth | 6. Sunglasses from Asos | 7. Beachy Hair Spray from Walgreens | 8. Marc Jacobs Purse from Shopbop | 9. Water Bottle from BKR | 10. Tank from Asos | 11. Heel from Shopbop | 12. Shorts from The Gap | 13. Skirt from Old Navy

Hey guys! Molly & Sally here from A Piece of Toast. We are SO excited for that Jacquelyn (and a little jealous) that she and her love get to travel to romanic Amafli, Italy. Based on her post last week it sounds like their trip is a bit of an open book right now… So we thought we’d help her pack! Must haves for any trip abroad during the summer season: outfits for day trips exploring, a swim suit and cover up for time on the coastal beach, and breezy attire for evenings out. With out realizing it, the items we collected all had a very pretty and sweet vibe – just like Jacquelyn! Enjoy your time on the coast, J + J – we can’t wait to see your photos when you return and we hope we made packing a bit easier (:
Yep, Molly & Sally definitely hit the nail right on the head with this one. My shopping list has just grown exponentially! Thanks again ladies <3

Just a few things I wish would magically find their way into my closet this season.
