Etsy Find

My obsession with Etsy has reached an all-time insane level, and my recent find has me SO tempted. These amazing leopard-print oxfords by Ellen Ruben {buy here} are everything I want for fall, and actually quite affordable considering how well they're made. Shop the rest of her awesome line {here}! What are your favorite Etsy shops?

For the Love of Lavender

Lavender is my favorite scent of all time, and I have been warming up to lavender as a color. I normally find it to be too girly or unflattering, but used in the right way and in the right shade, I think it can be so chic. A pop of lavender with flowers for a home is my new favorite {I picked these up from the Athens Farmer's Market while in Georgia this past weekend!}, and lavender nail polish is something I've been playing with for a while. I picked up Essie's "Warm and Toasty Turtleneck" from TJ Maxx, and cannot wait to wear it all throughout fall. And this laundry detergent by Roux Maison is the best smelling - it actually makes me excited to do laundry!

Dusty Rose

For as long as I can remember, the "shabby chic" style and colors have always stood out to me, and I long to decorate a home {and my wardrobe!} in that style. Below are a pair of sandals I picked up last summer from H&M that have that perfect dusty rose shade I love so much. I typically wear these with a white or neutral color dress, and I absolutely plan on wearing them all the way through September! {Similar here and here}

Slip Dress

The slip dress reminds me of 90s fashion, which I am so glad is coming back; I love the minimalist approach to fashion, and the slip dress is the perfect example. Below is how I would style this darling dress - black leather accessories, coral nails and lips, and a fabulous ring!

Summer Beauty Part II

I did a post in July {here} about summer beauty products I love, and today are a few more - most importantly sunless tanner! This Estee Lauder product {here} is my go-to for last minute self-tanning since I wear sunscreen often and always attempt to avoid getting burnt.  And as always, a few summer nail polish shades - Essie's "Turquoise and Caicos" and "Naughty Nautical."  What are you favorite summer beauty products?

Summer Inspired

I love few things more than a white dress for summer; whether it's fitted and preppy, or long and flowy, a white dress is always chic to me. Below is an image via Late Afternoon blog {here} that inspired this post and kind of makes me wish for an eternal summer:

Naeem Khan Spring 2014

Sometimes I feel like I can look at a runway collection and think, "no one will EVER wear that" and wonder what the point is; my favorite collections are usually the ones that are unique and edgy, but still have pieces that a woman can actually use in her wardrobe.  Naeem Khan's Spring 2014 line may not be everyday wear, but it is glamorous and the gowns are truly stunning.  Every now and then you have to just appreciate the drama and glamour of the runway! {Image via here}
