The Black Barcode

Get Holiday Ready With The Black Barcode and Dash of Serendipity












Today Emma from Dash of Serendipity teamed up to bring you some last minute holiday looks! Emma and I have done some collabs in the past, check them out here! I love plaid around the holiday's and this combo with the skirt and flats have quickly become my favorite. The skirt is so unique that I had to add it to my closet as soon as I saw it! 

Today I have an eye appointment, I'm am in desperate need for a new pair of glasses. Other than that I am going to Ikea, wrapping presents and maybe baking! Be sure to check out Emma's blog and social media channels! 


Dark Green & Festive Plaid + Give, Better With Cuyana














Around this time last year I got this tote in black, I have used it so much since, for travel, school and work! You can see how I styled it here. The quality of this bag is amazing and after a year of use it looks brand new. It can hold around 30 pounds of my things, including my laptop, iPad, books, wallets just about anything. It seriously makes such a huge difference when I travel. It is also super soft and has a nice size zipper pockets in the inside. It comes with a dust bag to keep it in when it's not in use. I highly recommend this bag to anyone, you seriously won't regret it.

This year I thought I should get it in the cognac color so it would match everything else in my closet. I know that the Christmas is this weekend, but usually my friends don't give each other gifts till later, close to new years. This year they giving fewer, better things. Cuyana philosophy of fewer, better things expresses the intention of investing in and giving designs that are beautiful and useful. Each essential in Cuyana's collection has myriad purposes and sets a mood of opulence and meaning. This bag is the perfect gift for just about anyone, the nice thing about it, is that it can be monogrammed or personalized and there are many different colors to choose from! If that is a little to pricey, they this cute tassel keychain that I have on my tote, the keychain can me monogrammed or personalized and is functional! I highly recommend checking out Cuyana for any last minute gifts!

In other news, this Chicwish sweater is new to my collection and I love the color! It matches so perfectly with my heels I showed in my recent haul video. I am hoping to have another video up in the next couple of days. Be sure to check back the rest of the week for new outfit posts! 


Florals with Flow









So this is an older post that I just found that I thought I would share, especially for those people who live in a warmer place. I live in Michigan and right now there is about a foot of snow on the ground and it is negative 3 degrees out, so this is NOT what I am actually wearing today. You can find me bundled up in my vail parka and Bean Boots. In other news, I am working on my explanation post for my leave of absence and other fun blog post. I have some new ideas I want to bring to the blog, and I have a ton of new clothes I would love to share with you, see a preview here. Also just finished my Christmas shopping for everyone on my list, would anyone be interested in a gift guide? Let me know!

Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I have blogged and even been social on my social media pages, I'll explain why in a later post. Here is a video I put together of recent purchases over the last month or so. If you click on the video and look at the description everything will be linked so you can shop the products I showed in the video.

Oh Hey! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was nice to finally have a break yesterday to catch up on house stuff like laundry and thank you notes. Saturday night I went to a vegetarian/vegan restaurant with my friend Chloe, it was so delicious! I ordered the  General Tso's Cauliflower, which is cauliflower instead of chicken, you couldn't even tell the difference and it was amazing! I am going back there again for sure! 

I ordered this pair of shoes for the holiday's and just winter months, I cannot wait to get them! They are a new arrival but are going so quickly, my size has sold out 3 days in a row and when I finally saw they were in stock yesterday I had to go for it! I love the print and of course the scallop detailing! Other options I considered were this pair (selling out quickly as well!) and this pair. I am trying to stop myself from getting these too! 

The jacket I am wearing above is fully stocked and now in 6 new colors! It feels like it is a $1,000 jacket, such great quality and a piece I will have in my closet for year. If you are thinking about getting one, jump on it! You won't regret it!
