This week has been super busy, so I'll keep this short & sweet! I wore this outfit at the launch party for

TRV

& was so glad I did. Originally I wanted to wear something completely different, but when the top I ordered never came in, I improvised! At least for me, any time I know I'm going to be taking pictures or anything of that sort, it's always best to wear long sleeves and keep the actual clothes simple. Accessorize the outfit to add a fun statement, but stick to neutrals and clean cuts. I love this turquoise necklace, (

Have a great weekend!

As we all know by now, I definitely gravitate towards neutral colors. A great way to add a lil bit of excitement to a basic outfit is with details. To pull out the eyelet details of the skirt, I paired it with a lace crop top. The details not only complement each other, but break up an otherwise simple color palette. And of course, you can never go wrong with a pop of color in a necklace!

Thanks for reading!

One of my favorite tv shows is definitely Gossip Girl. From the macaroons to the glamorous parties, I love to indulge in a few good episodes of the "scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite". Anyone who has seen the show will understand the over-the-top yet flawless wardrobes of the stars of the show, particularly Blair and Serena. I have always been torn between who I liked better as a character: Blair or Serena. But when it comes down to it, Serena wins my vote due 100% to her amazing outfits. Those stylists knew what they were doing! 

One of my favorite outfits of Serena's was in the

pilot

of Season 5. Something about the bold, pink palazzo pants and Parisian chic hat has always stuck with me. When I saw these pants last summer, I knew they were the perfect piece to recreate her iconic look. Not only was I able to channel my inner SVDW, but I was able to do it at a fraction of the cost! 

Let me know what y'all think about "get the look" posts in the comments below!

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day weekend. A big thank you goes out to all the selfless men, women, and the family of these people who served our country to the end. A 'thank you' doesn't even begin to approach how grateful I am.

Growing up, I absolutely hated black and blue together. I still think it's a tricky combination to pull off, but when I saw this dress I knew I had to have it. The two-piece illusion and black mesh detail in the back totally make the dress. And can we just talk about these shoes!! I've seen them on countless blogs and Pinterest boards, and so I finally made the investment and got my own pair.

Best decision ever

. Every time I've worn them, 

everyone,

 and I mean just about everyone, stops me to ask about them. I feel like I should have just named this post "the best of my wardrobe" because all these pieces are hands down my favorite pieces of the moment. I was watching Project Runway this last fall and saw one of the models in this to-die-for necklace, so obviously I had to get that too! It adds such a bold statement to any outfit.

Thanks for stopping by!
