Weekend Happenings

My job does not always allow me to have weekends off but when I do I make the best of them. 
While strolling through the Old Fourth Ward Art Festival in Atlanta I stumbled across this sunny saying that reminded me of my mom! 

Can't go a day without some arm candy! Maxi Dress ASOS, Bracelets H&M, J.Crew, and pieces picked up in India. 

Since moving to Atlanta I have discovered so many unique areas with fun boutiques and cafes. One of my favorite areas is Inman Park, where we discovered this unique furniture and interior design store. 
I am obsessed with these little succulents. They are modern looking and come in an array of interesting shapes and colors. 

Love a little graffiti street art!

Crisp White Bags

A white handbag is equivalent to a crisp white shirt. It's an essential and creates a freshness to your look that no other color can. Here are some of my favorite white handbag finds! 
1. BCBG Satchel 
2. ASOS Clutch
3.Sole Society Top Zip Tote 
4. Zara Shopper 
5. Rebecca Minkoff Perforated Mini Mac

Lemon Stripes

I don’t think I could ever fully explain my obsession with stripes! Maybe some of you like-minded people can understand the addiction. I had to add this cute lemon-striped dress to my collection, and wearing it has been so much fun. Light and easy, this Dorothy Perkins beauty does not need much styling – just add a pretty silk head scarf to top off the look!

The Full Summer Skirt

When summer rolls around I am instantly attracted to super feminine designs with a retro feel. A full skirt is a great way to feel dressed up and stay cool during those hot months. Reminiscent of the 50's, this skirt by French Connection is a must for any closet. Wear yours with a sleek crop top for a modern twist on a classic shape.

A Little Mint & Print

I love printed pants, especially of the slouchy, stretchy-waist variety (it feels like you’re wearing PJs). Global-inspired prints are huge this season and wearing them in a pant is fresh and unexpected. I wore these THML pants to work with one of my favorite blouses from Good Night Macaroon, but I have already thought of a dozen outfits and occasions to wear these bad boys. This print paired with a white blazer, stilettos, and statement jewelry would be perfect for a night out. I will keep you posted on other looks I come up with for these tribal-inspired beauties.

DP Stripes! My Friday Obsession

Happy Friday All! This week I rediscovered an old favorite from my days in the UK, Dorothy Perkins. One thing that stood out was all the super cute stripes! Oh, and did I mention the amazing prices? I had my first encounter with DP all the way back in 2006. My university was having a party at some fancy London club. My mom happened to be visiting and she took me shopping on the high street to look for a dress. In the end, I chose a dress from Dorothy Perkins. It was emerald green with an empire waist and gold beading. I wish I could dig up the picture to share with you all. After returning to the States it's comforting to know that I have access to one of my favorites from my old life.

Trip to the Taj Mahal

I have been lucky enough to travel and see many wonderful things, but nothing has lived up to my expectations quite like my visit to the Taj Mahal. I can guarantee you that my pictures do not do it justice! Whenever I travel, I do my best to dress according to the country's cultural norms. Trying to keep covered in 105 degree heat proved to be a bit challenging. Has anyone else experienced challenges dressing while travelling?

The Block Heel Sandal

Every summer I buy sandals that I just can't take off. I end up loving them so much that I wear them nearly every day – by the end of the summer they generally get put out to pasture (I am very hard on my shoes). This summer I have a feeling I will be wearing a block heel sandal most days! I love this sandal because it has just enough heel on it to make it dressy but it is low enough for everyday wear. I found some great pairs to incorporate into your summer sandal collection. Which one will you choose?

Blogging! Getting back on the wagon

Anyone who is a regular follower may have noticed that I have not posted in some time. I apologize to all my readers and feel I must explain my absence. I started blogging because I was not working, and was living in the beautiful city of Berlin. I felt like I had an unlimited source of inspiration from the people, architecture, and culture. When I eventually had to return to America I felt like some of the creativity and inspiration had been sucked out of me and I found myself struggling to think of things to write. This was partially due to the fact that I was sad to leave my London home of 7 years behind and partially because I was starting to feel self-conscious about my own styling skills. Style blogging is not as easy as it looks. Constantly coming up with new, exciting looks can take its toll on your wallet and creative psyche. As I did more research and followed more blogs it seemed as if some of these girls had unlimited funds and had a new designer outfit for every day of the week (where do they get their money?) I am at a time in my life where I just can’t go shopping every day and have to watch my pennies very closely, which is difficult for me as I love beautiful clothes and my tastes happen to be on the pricier side. After my recent trip to India I have decided to dedicate myself to my blog and just learn to work with what I have. Who knows what the next year will bring?

Inspiration India

This Travelling Fashion girl is going to India!! I am lucky that I have traveled to many places but this will be my first trip to Asia and I am beyond excited. While I am there I hope to capture my experience through photography and lots and lots of shopping.  I have no idea what to expect but I love a good adventure and can't wait to share what I come across. If any of you readers out there have been to India I would love some tips and advice. Happy travels and happy styling!

This OR That: Minty Fresh Outerwear

For the past week I have had major spring fever! Nothing says spring to me like minty pastel colors. I fell in love with Reiss's 1971 Maya moto jacket. Its cool biker shape is made more feminine by its minty hue, but at $745 it's just a bit out of my price range! After some research I found a really good version by Line & Dot for $119, the same great look without breaking the bank!

Off Duty Style

So to be honest, my work wardrobe and my casual wardrobe are one in the same. I am lucky that I can pretty much wear whatever I want to work. My Gap army jacket and ripped jeans are  my go-to casual pieces. They are chic and comfortable  and should be essentials for any wardrobe.

Bold Stripe

For me stripes are as classic as an LBD or a great pair of jeans. Wearing bold stripes unexpectedly gives this classic a modern, more fashion-forward edge. I have been seeing bold black and white stripes everywhere, from the runway to the high street, and have been finding myself obsessing over these beautiful statement pieces.

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Dress

Exploring Atlanta

One of my favorite things about moving to a new city is exploring. On my day off, my husband and I decided to check out Inman Park in Atlanta. It was a mix of renovated, turn of the century homes, old buildings turned into hip lofts, and cute little boutiques. Once we start looking for a new place, this will definitely be on our list of places to look. Here is to more exploring!

A New Years Resolution

As some of you may have noticed, I have not posted in a while. I started a new job writing for a small boutique blog, and it has been taking up most of my time. My New Years resolution was to spend more of my free time working on my blog. I am just starting my resolution now! Yesterday was the perfect opportunity to get my blog back in gear - it was a beautiful, sunny day and I wore one of my favorite outfits, so I thought now is as good of a time as any. I know it's a bit late, but Happy New Years everyone! 
( you will notice that almost my entire outfit is from Zara. I did not realize this until I actually thought about what I had on!)
