Life Update!

As promised I have some exciting news that I am thrilled to share with all of you today! Although the weather is getting warmer, I am stocking up on some winter essentials, because I am making one of my dreams come true this upcoming Winter 2017.

I am BEYOND excited to tell you all that I will be taking my first trip to EUROPE this winter! I have never been overseas but it has always been a dream of mine to explore that part of the world. With my heritage being mostly German, and my dad living there for a few years in his 20’s, I have always been passionate about visiting Germany, among several other European countries.

Luckily, there are a TON of winter sales going on right now as retail stores are making room for their spring lines (which I plan to recap later this week). Shop outfit details and read more about my trip below…

So a little bit more about my trip… I booked through EF College Break. This site makes traveling so easy and much more affordable. It has been on my radar for the past few years, but I finally decided to take a leap of faith and finally book a trip!

Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! ❤



Color Obsession: Olive

One of my new favorite colors this season has been olive green (my color preference changes practically daily -but for now this is my current obsession)! This oversized, light weight sweater is no exception. I love the loose, relaxed fit and the lighter weight material makes it a perfect transition piece from winter to spring. I am also OBSESSED with this dark lip gloss. Normally I would shy away from something so bold, but it really gives this outfit a little bit of edge.

If you can’t tell, I have been on an oversized sweater kick lately. Check out my last post from earlier this week here. Shop outfit details below and more of my favorite olive must have pieces:

Also (random side note) if you haven’t heard yet, Katy Perry just launched her very own shoe line! I definitely did not see this coming, but I am so glad that it did! While the price points are a little higher and not 100% my style, I have to admit some of her items are just too darn cute! They also look like they are high quality and offer a different twist on the same old boring pumps and flats. Shop her line here. Sign up for the list and get 10% off your first purchase!

ANDDDD I also have some super exciting news in my personal life… so make sure to check back here on Monday where I will be sharing it with all of you!


Slouchy Sweater

I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since my last post! (Insert embarrassed emoji here). I have been super busy (in a good way) and have had so many changes in my life! For starters, I moved into a brand new apartment and will soon have a new roommate -one of closest friends, Katie!

I also earned a promotion at my company and started my new role as ACBJ’s email marketing specialist. I am super excited about this opportunity, but have been extremely busy adjusting to this new role. SO, I am hoping to get back on schedule with my blog and posting more regularly. Let’s start with my FAVORITE sweater that I have been living in this winter from Free People.




One of my favorite things about this sweater is that I can wear it off the shoulder! I also like being able to wear it with white jeans…. winter whites are really in right now and this top helped me pull it off.





Sweater: Macy’s, $74 on SALE! (similar, similar)

Booties: Vince Camuto, old (similar, similar for $49!)

Don’t worry, it won’t take two weeks for me to post again 🙂 I hope ya’ll have a great week!
