what advice would you give your 23-year-old self?

Friday, September 28, 2012

One of my absolute favorite websites is The Everygirl. They post amazing features on living, health, finance, fashion, and career, and I find it all extremely relevant and inspiring. They were also named one of Forbes' Top 10 Sites for Millennial Women, and with good reason. Several times a week, they feature amazing women who have succeeded in different aspects of several industries. During interviews with these women, The Everygirl always asks, "What advice would you give your 23-year-old self?" This is one of my favorite parts of the columns because, being a 23-year-old, I find it inspiring to hear what wisdom these women would give to themselves when they were just starting out. I have compiled a few of my favorite answers to give a little inspiration, and who knows - maybe in 10 years I'll have the same things to say to my 23-year-old self.

I know it's September and we're all feeling very lovey dovey towards fall (most of all, me), but I can't get over some of these gorgeous looks for spring from the latest NY Fashion Week. Check out my favorite looks from J. Crew and Kate Spade for the upcoming season.

wishlist wednesday | september 26

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

cheers to wednesday!


1. I'm a Harry Potter nerd, so obviously I'm interested to see what J.K. Rowling's new book, The Casual Vacancy, is like. I'm sure it will not disappoint.
2. Mumford & Sons has a new album, Babel. Need I say more?
3. SERIOUSLY OBSESSED with this new ceramic owl speaker from West Elm. How perfect would this be sitting on your desk playing music? It plugs right into your iPod! I can't get over it.
4. How cute would these Sisters of Los Angeles beach glasses be on a bar cart?
5. I really do need new boots for the fall/winter, and I'm kind of loving the shortened version of
J. Crew's classic Booker buckle boot.

fall playlist

Saturday, September 22, 2012

There's a lot of really great new (and old) music out lately, so I thought I would share some of it and post a little playlist of what I've been listening to lately. Click here to listen to it on Spotify.

wishlist wednesday | september 19

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Happy Wishlist Wednesday! I decided to switch it up a little bit and give WW a new look! Let me know what you think!


1. I've wanted a pair of Staffordshire dogs for a while now, and this darling black pair from Furbish might just do the trick.
2. While on my trip, I read Gillian Flynn's first 2 novels, Sharp Objects and Dark Places, and now I'm dying to read Gone Girl. I've never been one for suspense novels but I really enjoy Flynn's writing.
3. This Big Check Throw Pillow from High Street Market would be a perfect accent to almost any room.
4. Is it too early to be wishing for 2013 calendars? If it is I don't really care because this 2013 Cities Calendar from Rifle Paper Co. is freaking adorable.
5. Seriously obsessed with this Letterman Sweater-Jacket from Madewell. It's so appropriate for the back to school season and I have a feeling I would wear it every single day.

Cheers,
Ellie

PS: I got the idea for my new WW format from the adorable blog, Pugly Pixel. It's a great resource, you should check it out!

home again

Monday, September 17, 2012

I'm finally home from my lovely little trip, and boy, is it nice to be back. I'll have a recap of the trip up later this week, as well as some other delightful posts.

I love this picture of Christy Turlington from Vogue, September 1989. She just looks so gorgeous and cool, and it is the definition of classic. I wish I were wearing this whole ensemble right this second.

TUL > LAX > MIA

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Heading off on another trip today! I'm fortunate enough to have a job that involves some fun travel opportunities so I'm off to LA for a few days and then Miami for a hospitality tradeshow. Can't wait to share pics and stories of what I see over the next week when I get back!

wishlist wednesday | september 5

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

it's wednesday. wishlist time.



1. Completely smitten with this Flowersketch Peplum top from Madewell. It's sold out online, but crossing my fingers I can find it in store.
2. I haven't actually tried the new Coco Noir Chanel fragrance yet, but from the look of its sexy bottle, it could be pretty great.
3. The darling Hooray letterpress card from Parrott Design Studio is so cheery, it would brighten anyone's day for any occasion.
4. This gorgeous and luxe sequin chevron pillow from Ankasa would add a touch of glam and deco to any room.
5. This long turquoise/gold necklace from Design Darling is perfect to add a pop of color to a neutral-palette fall outfit-- I could even see it with that Flowersketch Peplum top up there.

Cheers,
Ellie
