As a graphic designer, the world of Pantone is somewhat of a mecca of superiority. After all, are you really a credible creative if you don’t drink coffee every morning from an Pantone mug? So when I discovered that Pantone had created shoes to pay homage to some of their most vibrant colors, I deemed it too fun not to share.
A sneak peek at the DIY pom pom earrings I plan to post a tutorial on soon.
While I am not a gardener, I have been on the succulent bandwagon for a while. Maybe it’s their low maintenance yet highly chic look that makes me think it’s the perfect touch of garden glow in any interior space. I don’t seem to be the only one who thinks succulents and terrariums have real value, as the boutiques Paiko in Kaka’ako, Hawaii and Jade & Clover in Dallas, Texas (my hometown!) have adopted the concept of Succulent Bars, a luxury experience where you can create your own trendy succulent plant, allowing you to the choose the type of terrarium, plant species, and even color of dirt. I can’t wait to visit Jade & Clover and create my own chic summer masterpiece.
Lately I’ve been super into chunky sandals, and BRYR’s most recent collection is right up my alley. I’m not a huge fan of color, but these add the perfect pop to a subtle jean outfit!
Highlights from my NYC trip a few weeks back for a cousins baby shower. Currently triggering my love (need) to get back to the city ASAP.
Maybe its the midcollege crisis of being done with sophomore year, but my interest in the purple/lilac hair trend has skyrockted, making me wonder if I could ever rock the trend on my own. The more I look at those who took the purple plunge, I see how many colors, hair types, and styles this trend accommodates, making me more temped than ever to try it myself. Junior year transformation anyone?
Maybe its just because I’m living in a place that actually gets cold now, but I recently have been looking for staple winter pieces. As seen on Man Repeller, Alberta Ferretti’s winter collection puts new meaning into quirky sweaters, each colored by a day of the week. As soon as I saw them I imagined myself strutting in the snow, the perfect balance of stylish and weird, but you know, not like, too weird. Maybe I’d wear the Friday sweater on Monday as some sort of conversation starter for my solidarity for the last day of the working week. Ferretti really hit the nail on the head with the current “weird is the new cool” trend huh. Maybe other designers will give it a try so we won’t have to drop 400 dollars to hit that mysterious librarian aesthetic.
No, sadly it is not. But this time instead of feeling bad about being a thrift shopping fraud, Reformation’s promise to sustainable fashion is a reason to strut their stuff confidently. Don’t worry if anyone calls you out on your counterfeit vintage ensemble; you have guilt free clothing to throw back in their face.
Recently I’ve been learning embroidery, and finally tested it out by doing an eye design on the collar of an old button down. It made a shirt I didn’t wear anymore much more edgy and playful, and was the perfect complement to the funky, crushed velvet blazer I recently acquired during holiday sales. Look for an embroidery DIY coming soon!!!

Athleisure has been a long standing trend, filled with marble print leggings, Lulu Lemon logos and sports bras that somehow support, and give a little extra oomf to those less endowed (aka me). While I like dressing comfy as much as the next college student, I’ve never been a huge fan of the athleisure trend. However, Tory Burch recently decided to present their own take on the trend, with the new Tory Sport. Instead of the usual print leggings and tight running jackets, Tory Sport takes their inspiration from classic 70s activewear, giving their collection an elegant, sleek look that previous athletic wear can’t compete with. With quilted gym bags, form fitting geometric sweaters, and the timeless tennis skirt, I predict that Tory Sport is the gear no fashion forward woman will want to do without. Check out Tory Sport here.
