Feeling Fancy

ASOS Top, TopShop Skirt (old, similar here), Nicholas Kirkwood Heels (other colors here and here), Saint Laurent Bag

I’m usually one that goes for comfort and practicality, but sometimes I just feel like dressing up for absolutely no reason. I work from home and aside from meetings or a date night, I’m usually only dressing for myself. It puts me in a completely new mood and I somehow seem to be more productive. Maybe I should do it more often!

Happy Friday & first day of Summer!

Anthropologie currently has up to 50% off. They have so many cute swimsuits including this strips & bikes one and also this little peplum number. I also love this stripe shirt and these white distressed skinny jeans.

J.Crew is offering 25% off everything until the 24th with code: NEWSTYLE  My favorite new items are these chanel-esque ballet flats, this Comme Des Garcons heart shirt and this statement necklace. Oh, and how cute is this pineapple print bikini?

Net-A-Porter still has their sale going on with up to 70% off now! I’ve had my eye on this yellow bow Miu Miu bikini for a while now and I’m thinking of taking the plunge since it’s half off. I also have these embellished sandals and this skirt sitting in my cart.

Steven Alan has an amazing sample sale going on now until the 22nd. I love, love this chambray jumper and this striped tee.

I had to nap a picture of this adorable flower pin, lady bug bracelet and flower studs.

I love the look of layering these two floral necklaces.

So many black & white goodies.

Her vintage pins are some of my favorite, especially that bow one!

I met my friend Jill a few months back when she sent me an email asking me to coffee to talk about her vintage jewelry company, Sweet & Spark. I not only fell in love with all of her amazing vintage finds, but she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I absolutely love what she’s done with her business and think she’s created something really unique and modern with her curated vintage jewelry. Some of my favorites from her collection right now are these gorgeous earrings, this rhinestone necklace, this bow necklace and this floral cluster necklace. I spend the afternoon at her house, looking through her endless amount of vintage treasures, playing dress up and snapping pictures of my favorites. She’s constantly adding more to her site and she also just recently launched a wedding collection for all you soon-to-brides! I’ve always been partial to vintage jewelry because each piece is unique and has some story behind it. I really don’t have the patience to sort through flea markets in hopes to find the perfect piece, so Sweet & Spark is my new favorite place for vintage jewelry shopping. I’ve already added piece from her collection to my wardrobe here and here and have lots more coming!
