On a trip to the mall yesterday I discovered a few lovely home furnishing stores that just so happened to capture my taste impeccably well. Restoration Hardware and Z Gallerie were my favorites! I love rustic, chic looking furniture and designs that compliment virtually any location (i.e. beach, mountains). Granted these stores were both very expensive, the designs and quality are well worth the investment. I snapped a few photos of my favorite things and thought I would share them with you. Comment with your favorites! Enjoy!

Miss Fabulous

Pink with Envy

I saw this dress browsing through Polyvore and I had to create a set for it. I love the uniqueness of it! I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Not to mention I also was looking for an excuse to include these shoes! They’re a Valentino creation I think but I know Torrid made a knock off version of them for much cheaper. Enjoy!

This past week I’ve been in a transition of moving from my parent’s home to my summer apartment. Unfortunately, my apartment wasn’t ready for move in when it was supposed to be so my company put me and the other interns in a hotel room. Obviously, you can’t do much cooking in a hotel so I’ve been surviving on Red Robin next door and Taco Bell down the street. For a day or two, its fine. However, after a week of it I feel sluggish and gross. This isn’t cute or self esteem boosting that’s for sure! Here are a few things I’m doing to feel better again!

Stretching- It lengthens your body and wakes up the muscles!

Fruit Infused Water- The most refreshing thing one can drink! I love cucumber and lemon!

Eat Breakfast- Fruit is low calorie and delicious!

Go smell the flowers- Nature and fresh air is good for you!

A fresh manicure- Pretty fingers really lift the spirits!

Get rid of dead skin with sugar scrub! Skin feels so smooth later!

There are a few things every summer that I find very necessary to buy. I need more than just a fresh pair of flip flops and a new bottle of sunscreen. I create a mental list of things I would like in a particular season. This list changes drastically every summer with my maturing tastes (that was a joke) and style. Here’s my list of little loves for the summer months! Comment below with your additions!

I had a fabulous fashion find at Marshall’s today! I’ve been obsessed with finding a romper for the summer that’s light weight and also flattering. Another requirement was the price- it had to be under $15. I know, that’s a tough budget for some people but I can usually find things at great prices if I shop around enough. I was thrilled when I found this adorable romper! The label is Amber Blue (not sure what this company is but they make a cute romper!) Comment below with accessory and shoe suggestions!

Building Up a Professional Wardrobe

As an intern and student, I came to the capital of suits and ties having a small wardrobe appropriate for the office. Washington D.C. is all about the professional look. New York City values creativity and chic outfits. Los Angeles likes a laid back, professional wardrobe. I’m here to combine a touch of each in our wear-to-work wardrobe!

cdaa3f89982963c19f1cf0610e2b0d2a1. The Pencil Skirt– A staple in any woman’s wardrobe. It doesn’t have to be boring though! Have fun with the shape, pattern, and material of this classic piece.

2. Toga Dress– Simply put, this piece can be dressed up or down and is low maintenance. Not necessarily a 445dcbc632ed4b8bdf3b44b11d13170eclassic, but you must have a dress that fits almost any occasion.

3. A Button Up– Oxford button up shirts are pretty standard to anyone’s closet. Gone are the days eb3d3d657da4bd9f69790c0834afc7a5of boring white and blue though. Exciting patterns give this old style a face lift! If you fear color and pattern, find a neutral navy or red to experiment with first.

4. Blazers– These are really nice for adding something to any outfit. Be creative9d0ab2c19522129341f7d938a4685889 though! Black and navy go with almost anything, but a pop of color adds a little something extra. Try several on to adjust for size, length, and material.

5. Ballet Flats– A shoe that won’t kill your feet in the office or 2135ae71612728245122afeeaad2a536around town. Find exciting colors and textures! Python print is fun to wear with almost anything. Hot pink adds a little skip in your step. Some of my favorites have come from Old Navy. Of course Tory Burch has her line of iconic shoes but let’s be honest, who can really afford them?

6. Shift Dress– I love wearing these on days where I want to feel comfy. They’re classy and among the bestOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA wear-to-work options we have! Accessorizing them with a nice scarf or belt really ties the outfit together.
