monday must–haves

Playing Catch Up

July 6, 2015

Well, if this isn’t the Monday of all Mondays… 

I’d planned to get life in order this past weekend but per usual, those plans went to shit the moment I decided an impromptu road trip was the ticket. Destination: Smith Mountain Lake. I assume the rest of you accomplished absolutely nothing so let’s catch up, shall we?


I “created” a new hairstyle while I waited for AAA on the side of 495 this past weeked. You’ll need a handful of bobby pins and a really bad attitude. Tutorial coming soon.

Wedding season is upon us. God help us all. Give that lace-overlay dress a break and try a chic romper, like this one, instead.

I picked up a one piece for the weekend and was glad I did after getting roasted on day 1 at the lake. It’s hot pink, strapless, and $40.

Feel like throwing your mascara tube against the wall after it wilts the lashes you just spent 5 minutes curling to perfection? Behold, the greatest mascara there ever was.

Into this palm print trend? Old Navy now has a cute romper in that print. And today only get 30% off your ON purchase with code: SPARKS

That Ann Taylor maxi dress I’m obsessed with is still available and STILL on sale! Only medium and large is left so snag it while you can. The fit is divine.

Those banded sandals I’ve been living in are sold out but Steve Madden just came out with a gold pair. Yum.

Looking for the perfect cutoffs? These are my favorites. And totally worth the price tag. They run a little large and sit like boyfriend jeans so size down if this isn’t your jam.

Yes, it’s white but this pleated midi dress has become my favorite easy summertime bbq look.

I’m engaged in a new love affair and his name is Bastiste: Original. In fact, I’m penning an ode to him that will go live on Thursday.

I bought these Madewell bar studs two weeks ago and was so afraid I’d lose a few or they’d sell out that I bought another set this weekend. Whatever. They go with literally everything.

Summer Flats

June 1, 2015

Sometimes the day just calls for a flat. Whether it’s just too damn hot to be sliding around in heels or you’re looking for something a little more casual, I’ve linked to a few of my favorite flats for summer below!

Midday Must Have: Loft Sale

May 26, 2015

Two posts in one day means one thing and one thing only: one bad ass sale.

Ann Taylor LOFT has marked down their entire sale section by 60%. Yes. 60% off every single thing under the ‘Sale’ tab. I just spent less than $150 on 8 new items and can’t wait for them to arrive in 5-8 business days. Hop to it, ladies, the good stuff is going fast. Get to the good stuff quick by filtering for your size: Petite | Regular | Tall
