Sometimes accessories make the outfit. Even the trusty jeans and a tee combo feels elevated when paired with the right handbag. As you may recall from my May favorites, I recently added two new bags from Melie Bianco to my collection. By the way, my collection now consists of four handbags, so adding two more at the same time is saying something. Melie Bianco stands out as one of the few vegan and ethical brands that feels young and trendy. Considering that and their mostly under $100 price point, it sounds to good to be true. Before you shop, here’s what you need to know.
May was the month when I thought it would all calm down, but it only got crazier. I’m learning to stop putting expectations on things because for better or worse they are typically wrong. Another good habit I’ve adopted? Keeping a running list of favorites to share with you. It’s mostly green beauty and ethical fashion, but then again what else would it be? Let’s get into it.
Considering it’s nearly May, summer should be making an appearance soon. It’s currently a chilly gloomy day, but a girl can dream, right? I love a little sunshine and warmth, but honestly dressing for hot days isn’t my favorite. I’m not one to show a lot of skin, so putting together an outfit I like while also ensuring I don’t melt can be tricky. Perhaps this year I’ve had a change of heart (or have reached peak desperation for vitamin D) because I’m craving all things ruffled, bright, woven and breezy.
After a brief blogging hiatus, I thought it was best to come back with something light and conveniently the lovely Carina tagged me for the versatile blogger award. I always like to see these posts circulating in the community because it’s a nice way to recognize your fellow bloggers and have some fun. Stay tuned to learn a bit more about me and who I think should do this next.
Oh, January. I’m not sad to see you go. For some it brings motivation and a fresh start, but the new year just turns me into a slug. This month wasn’t all bad though, so today we’re talking favorites. If you haven’t read one my monthly favorites before, I bring a mix of beauty, fashion and randoms. I especially love all the things I’m sharing with you this month.
Happy Sunday! Hiding in my drafts was a thrift haul from the last time I hit up the Goodwill Sunday sale. Don’t you love when your past self does something nice for present you? I’m still not quite on top of blog posts (see this post) and we love a haul, so I thought I could talk you through my latest finds today. I tried on a ton of clothes as always and left with five items for $2.50. It’s not the biggest haul ever, but they rarely are. Thrifting is a lot of looking, a little buying, and sometimes all you buy are basics.
Winter is in full force, making me seriously lazy when getting dressed. Just give me a cozy clothes and a heavy coat and I’ll be fine. Because of that, I’ve been heavily relying on the basics of my closet and let’s just say they are well loved. In case you’re in need of wardrobe staples, here’s a roundup of ethical and vegan options.
Glasses are perhaps my favorite accessory, but until recently, I never considered how they affect my makeup. Well, besides leaving those annoying marks in my foundation anyway. It can be tricky to balance your makeup and frames, especially when you’re a lover of statement glasses like me, so today I’m sharing my tips along with the new Winter and Resort collections from Warby Parker.
I know we all always say this, but I can’t believe it’s already favorites time. Hey, November? Where did you go? Were you even here in the first place? It was a weird stressful month, but despite that I have quite a few favorites to share with you. There’s a little beauty, a little fashion, a little food and a ramble about what happened this month.
Last week I had an epiphany. I spend most of the year wearing a coat and yet I only own a single coat. From a minimalism standpoint, this is great, but as a girl who has always loved fashion, this is a little sad. Cue searching the internet for coats and jackets for every occasion.
