Leah Goren ♥

My obsession with all things handmade began when I stumbled upon the magical world of Etsy.

One of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe comes from one of my favorite designers that I found on Etsy: Leah Goren. How incredibly charming and whimsical are her pieces? There's just something about her repeating patterns and the ease in the structure of her pieces - so simple and delicate, yet such darling statement pieces that you could wear every day. They're not so basic, basics  

This Cat Print Curved Hem Tank is one of my closet staples. Perfectly cropped and loose yet structured. 

The Black Cat Dress is a classic (she also did a collaboration with Anthropologie that included a similar design). 

    


These adorable pieces are not just limited to clothing, she also has a collection of scarves, pouches, totes, prints, and tech accessories (I'm proud to say that my Iphone case looks a little something like this). 

Did I mention? Every order comes beautifully wrapped and if you ever need a custom size or style, she's super sweet and will work with you for the perfect piece.

Winsome Goods Goodness ♥

I love browsing on Instagram. I could spend hours and hours going through photos finding home inspiration, fashion inspiration, and life inspiration. After clicking through various photos and users, my eyes caught sight of the perfect pair of summer shorts. After a bit of researching and Instagram snooping on strangers I stumbled upon Winsome Goods


Winsome Goods is a lovely, simplistic, quality-driven, small-batch brand of clothing designed and handmade in the USA. I have yet to pull the trigger and purchase any of their beautiful pieces yet (I've been forcefully resisting myself), but I definitely see myself picking up probably almost everything in the near future. Their pieces styled together are adorable, but are also simple enough to be worn with everything in your wardrobe.

These are quite possibly the perfect pair of shorts. They also come in a longer pant version.


  
How adorable is this slightly cropped Tulip Top? The back and side detail is so pretty - and the higher neckline is perfect for some dainty gold jewelry.


 This is such an easy, simple, lightweight and elegant top. It would make a great wardrobe staple - and it's navy!

I know I haven't posted in a long while - life has kept me very busy, but I'm slowly starting to piece my life together. Hope you're all doing well lovelies! ♥

Your Eyes Deceive You Not ♥


 Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning.
And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either.
There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else. But just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now.
The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breath in and out.
You’re going to be fine in about five minutes. 


Lovelies! I cannot believe it has been almost a year since I last went on my blog. I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the start of the new year so far ♥

My life has just been an absolute roller coaster ride. Sometimes I'm in absolute awe at the top screaming my lungs out in amazement and happiness, other times I'm tearing up with fright from the tips and turns, holding my breath afraid of what will happen next once I reach the bottom of this free fall. Yet at the end of the day everything will be okay.  

But I am back and ready to blog'n roll.

The New Year brought me a new career along with rekindled love, friendship and of course new year's resolutions. This year I plan to:

     ♥ Save money - which doesn't necessarily mean to spend less, but to definitely spend smarter and control
         my shopping habits better
     ♥ Eat healthier - no more late night snacking
     ♥ Take sewing classes at Spool of Thread
     ♥ Walk home from work at least 3 days every week
     ♥ Read - I have had so little time for myself to indulge in books lately but I will push myself to make time



Speaking of shopping, my wardrobe has become a lot smaller since I started blogging. I've been evaluating, donating, and investing in basic, beautiful, and (most importantly) wearable pieces. There have also been a number of gorgeous additions that I can't wait to review and share with you along with some new skincare and makeup items that I have been loving.
Stay tuned ♥
