Falling for Brooklyn

There are a plethora of fashion bloggers out there, whom inspire daily. Many, who often make me scratch my head and ask how in the world did they manage to pull that amazing outfit together. I think I am pretty decent when it comes to putting together ensembles, but the art of layering and mixing high and low to the perfect culmination is still something I am trying to master. With that being said, I have a new favorite blogger who is quickly inspiring me to mix loud patterns and forge on with my highest heels. Her name is Brooklyn Blonde, and she is brilliant.

Black, White and Gray–All Day

I often come across well appointed rooms that I adore but, it’s rare for me to stumble upon an entire home that quite literally makes me weak in the knees. The Vancouver home below, recently featured on Made By Girl is beyond brilliant. The actual structure and detailing of the home is out of this world, not to mention the perfectly curated interior design.

How amazing are the super rich hardwood floors and the glass staircase railing??


The perfect bar – you’re guests have a place to relax while you are mixing up a cocktail!


Loving the touch of bold pattern, everything is a bit monochromatic and this adds a fun pop!


Freaking BA-NANAS kitchen!! (sorry Rachel Zoe is back) I mean, does it get any better than Carrera, white cabinetry and silver accents…I think not.


Design this dream home yourself!

Sip and Listen

Oh Labor Day, you are a glorious holiday indeed. Not only do you grace me with an extra day off work, but you symbolize the beginning of Fall, football season, and better clothes. This weekend we are in Denver for a wedding, (hello 60 degree weather, I knew you were out there!) and I discovered a drink similar to the below on the hotel's cocktail menu. Anything with blackberries and lemonade is perfection in my book, and this would be a cinch to make!

This picture reminds me of my beloved Little Branch, minus one silver stir stick.

  • 1.5 oz Vodka
  • 5 Blackberries
  • 3 oz Lemonade
Muddle (smash) four blackberries in the bottom of a glass. Add ice, vodka, and lemonade. Garnish with your extra blackberry. Cheers!

September also means, Austin City Limits is a mere two weeks away. The list of bands I am dying to see this year is abundant, as it's the 10th anniversary. At the top of the list, is the controversial yet always intriguing, Kanye West. Yes, I know, he is easy to hate but his music is too damn easy to love. Then when he collaborates on an album with another favorite, Jay-Z, well my head just explodes. One of my favorites from Watch the Throne, below.

From Shoe to Outfit

Let’s just face it, Christian Louboutin doesn’t make a bad shoe. This commonly known fact, poses quite a predicament for someone with a salary not equivalent to a Kardashian. So in an effort to focus on something other than jealousy, I have decided to turn some of my favorite pairs into outfits. The Kasha studded bootie is just ridiculous. It’s actually quite rude to be that swoon worthy in my opinion, but no one asked me. Here is how I would pair it with some of this seasons biggest trends (clearly in my dream life where I am given shoes for free).



1. Tibi Tie Neck Bodysuit $275 2. Vince Shearling Vest $1,350 3. Anita Ko Gold Stud Earrings $325 4. Mathias Gold Plated Rings $220 5. J Brand Denim Leggings $205 6. Christian Louboutin Kasha $1,595 7. NARS Night Flight $17 8. NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Terre De Feu $25
