Great Finds File: Mother's Day Gift ideas


Being a mom I know understand how much my mom loves me, not that I didn't know that, but now I comprehend the depth, strength and purity of it. There's just nothing like it, nothing that can replace it, nothing that can take it away, it's just the strongest, less selfish and most beautiful emotion I've ever felt. There are no words to describe it, period. So, since mother's day is just around the corner, I'm sharing my favorite gift ideas for mom in case you need some help and inspiration ;)

Outfits File: Denim on Denim + Mirrors


Happy Monday!! Hope your weekend was GREAT! On Saturday we celebrated Matthew's birthday with a little party with some friends, and it was so nice to catch up with good friends who I hadn't seen in so long! Matthew used to be the baby among all the kids and now he's 5! Time.is.flying. Anyway, the rest of the weekend was filled with lots of activities: we tried a new place for Pizza, we went running by the lake (the wind was so strong that I honestly felt like I was running in slow motion, I'm pretty sure I'd have gone faster walking than trying to push the stroller while running, hahaha), I did a little shopping, we went to Church...it was definitely a non-stop kind of weekend!

Today's look is basically my uniform, I wear denim almost everyday, and denim on denim is one of my go-to outfits; works with heels, flats, sneakers, you name it, and it's super comfy ;) My favorite chambray shirts are from Madewell and J.Crew, so if you're looking for one, I recommend checking them out ;)

Wearing: Ray-Ban Mirrored Aviators / Madewell Chambray Shirt (old, similar, similar) / Gap Skinny Jeans (old, similar, similar) / J.Crew Downing Tote / J.Crew Factory Metallic Oxfords / BaubleBar Gold Orb Ear Jackets (c/o) / BaubleBar Petite Asymmetrical Ear Set

1x3 Ways File: The White Summer Skirt


Even though I LOVE wearing black, when the temperatures get a bit warmer I usually start incorporating lots of white, and for this Spring and Summer I'm loving white skirts! I initially got one from Topshop (for just $20!!!) to go with a cropped leather top I scored a few months ago from Nasty Gal for a steal (looks very similar to the one on look 3), unfortunately, the lining is very see through so I'm kind of back to square one. Two that look good are this one from Madewell and the one above, which is from J.Crew. I think I'm leaning more towards the one featured here (on sale!) because I find the laser cut pretty rad, but I still haven't made up my mind! Any good options you guys know about?

ONE: 1. Tildon 45mm Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses / 2. Lizzie Fortunato Port of Call Clutch Oaxaca / 3. Loeffler Randall Luz tassel sandal / 4. Madewell NSF® Scout Ringer Tank / 5. Biltmore® & Madewell Panama Hat / 6. Victoria's Secret The Knockout Bandeau top and Bottom / 7. Loeffler Randall Paz two strap sandal / 8. Victoria Beckham Classic Aviator Sunglasses With Mirrored Lenses / 9. Master&Muse X Clare Vivier Under-Arm (sold out, similar)

TWO: 1. J.Crew Keeper chambray shirt / 2. J.Crew Hologram cluster earrings / 3. J.Crew Laser-cut circle midi skirt / 4. Thakoon Addition Lizzy Chunky Heel Sandals / 5. Dior 'So Real' 48mm Sunglasses / 6. Rebecca Minkoff Mini Love Cross Body Bag / 7. J.Crew Cyprus jeweled sandals

THREE: J.Crew Laser-cut circle midi skirt / 2. Jaggar Flash Crop Top / 3. Finds + Kaibosh Song of the Siren cat eye acetate sunglasses / 4. J.Crew Roxie crackled leather ankle-tie pumps / 5. J.Crew Denim jacket in calyer wash / 6. Clare V. Dark Grey Suede Stripes Flat Clutch


Outfits File: The Classic White Button Down & The Perfect Bone Jacket


If there's one item I'll be wearing non-stop for the next couple of months is this bone faux leather jacket. It's the kind of item that as soon as you get it and put it on you already know it will be on heavy rotation, you can picture yourself wearing it with many different pieces, and you already dream about getting it in another color. Yes, it is that good :) I love how it looks with an all-black ensemble, but with the warmer days ahead all I can think of is wearing it over a white dress ;)

PS: See how the black one looks on Crystalin, and the dove one on Merritt ;)

Wearing: Spitfire Helix Sunglasses (sold out, similar, similar) / BaubleBar Petite Asymmetrical Ear Set (c/o) / BaubleBar Gold Orb Ear Jackets (c/o) / J.Crew Shirt (sold out, almost identical) / BB Dakota Vivian Vegan Leather Jacket / Gap Skinny Jeans (old, similar, similar) / Tory Burch Robinson Satchel (discontinued, similar, similar) / Zara Cut-Out Leather Booties (similar, similar)





Great Finds File: Bits of Mint and Blue


I think that now that Spring has definitely made its appearance (and I'm hoping there's no turning back!), I'm gravitating towards whites, blues, nudes, and a bit of green. I'm so looking forward to seeing this city green again! Here are some things that have caught my eye recently:

1. J.Crew Linen cross stripe tee: I had seen this tee in blue, but when I clicked on the black color, it was like looking at a different tee. Really like it in black and white, surprised? ;)
2. Anthropologie Fused Gold Vase: The kind of product that makes you think of a DIY version ;)
3. and 11. Anthropologie Dreambirds Vase: Aren't these stunning?
4. J.Crew Kimono-sleeve dress: Polished yet comfortable white summer dress perfection?
5. West Elm Saddle Dining Chair: This chair looks amazing! Take a look at how people have styled it on the WE website, you'll see ;)
6. H&M Suede Sandals: Can we talk about these? Stunning or what?
7. Anthropologie Tipsy Paperweight: How fun!
8. Loeffler Randall Gem Clutch: Loving this fresh combo, and the jewels make it super fun, definitely a great way to take up a notch a simple outfit.
9. Auxiliary Bega Satchel Bag: I'm hoping that if I blog about this bag multiple times it will magically become mine ;)
10. Superga Perforated Leather Sneakers: Aren't these sneakers great? I love the cool twist with that perforated leather!
12. Tory Burch Viv Flat Sandals: Gotta love a python pattern and a polished looking flat ;)
13. Ikea ANGENĂ„M Vase: Don't you love when you come across great Ikea stuff?
14. Madewell V-Wire Bandeau Bikini Top and Bottom in Batik Wave: LOVE this bikini! And I've tried their bikinis before and their bottoms fit great, meaning they are comfortable ;)
15. West Elm Distressed Rococo Wool Rug: Love the over-dyed and worn look of this rug, and that color, how beautiful?!
