The Long And Short Of It


After scrolling through endless Coachella pics on instagram and twitter, I was feeling slightly inspired to put together my own little 'if-I-was-off-to-Coachella' look. 
Even though I visited Coachella Valley in SoCal back in December, (remember my Cali trip here + here?) I decided to put on this kimono cardigan from Jane and this light (oldie but a goodie) Louis Vuitton scarf and enjoy the breezy weather from the weekend.

Jane is a site that features new handmade and boutique items every day. They usually run 55-65 new deals a day with deals for less. Which also means an endless amount of scrolling! 
Be sure to check their FB page: Very Jane

What are your favorite Coachella looks?

P.S. Have you entered the Luna Marin giveaway?

Luna Marin Giveaway


I'm all about putting a unique twist on a classic piece.
I added my vintage Chanel brooch to this White Plum Boutique dress (LBD). I love how the tiny gold studded details and the brooch complement each other. The A-line skirt of this dress is quite flattering, and the low v-back makes it the perfect summer dress for any outdoor activities. 

Also, I'm excited to announce that I am collaborating with Luna Marin to give away a strand-set bracelet! Strands by Luna Marin is a collection that features unique, tangle-free bracelets with interchangeable Strands that you can switch up as often as your style! The best part is that you get to pick your own Strands, which means you can mix and match to make your own combinations. 

For more information on the bracelets, you can check out their "Build Your Bracelet" guide { here }.


Luna Marin has also been kind enough to offer a 10% discount code for my readers:

Denim Days


I'm already making a mental note that denim will play a big role in my Spring wardrobe. 
I love how easily you can transform the denim trend to fit any style. If you've been following along on my blog, you'll know how a layered monogram + chunky pearl necklace is my go-to necklace combo.
It definitely adds a girly take on denim.

see how else I worn denim:

{ my beautiful campus }

This week has been a crazy one for me. 
With finals just around the corner and LDOC next Friday (Last Day Of Classes), I am in panic mode.
I've been super stressed lately and wasn't able to get in an outfit post today, so I thought I should share a few life snaps from my instagram and other shots that I've taken in the past couple of days.

Hope your week is going better than mine!
