Bar Cart Essentials

bar cart


When I think of decorating for the holidays or for my apartment in general, my go to places are Target, West Elm, Etsy and Hobby Lobby. Each of these places has affordable and just what you're looking for pieces. For the holiday's I focus on buying anything that sparkles, has cute sayings or is GOLD! Gold is a color that can transition into many Holiday seasons seamlessly or in my case it's a color I leave up all year. Just like the color gold, a bar cart is a piece of furniture that is timeless and something you need all year. This one from target is the most affordable I have seen and is the classic style that works with a lot of designs. In keeping with the theme of gold these are my bar cart essentials.

1. Bar Cart from Target 
2. Cheers Banner from Etsy 
3. Cute Saying Dessert Plates from Nordstrom  (I just bought these & can't wait to use them)
4. Drinking inspired Print from Etsy
5. Drink Stirrers from Etsy
6. Gold Sea Urchins from Target (Put on the car and add the rest to a gallery wall like here)
7. Gold Rimmed Glassware from West Elm 
8. Gold Printed Glassware from West Elm

This Is How We Do


Dress: American Apparel Vest: Aritzia Boots: Jeffrey Campbell Hat: J.crew Belt: Club Monaco


Oh do I love cold weather in Florida. Even this get up did not keep me warm. After I took these photos I threw on a big shaggy cardigan. I look forward to the days of layering and wearing fall colors. It makes you feel like the holiday's are coming.

Wedding in October


It was my cousin Taylor's wedding that brought the Traxler's and my boyfriend Alex, for a 13 hour drive to her beautiful wedding in Columbia, South Carolina.  This quaint style home wedding was so darling and so personal, it put all glam weddings to shame. This wedding embodied my cousins shy demeanor and simple lifestyle; it was perfect for her. 

Taylor, I wish you and Wesley a very happy life together! Hope you 2 are enjoying your honeymoon!

Clean Design





Follow me on Pinterest!

 I think it's normal for all girls who go on Pinterest, to have an urge to redecorate. Once you're immersed with amazing inspiration it's hard not to. I wish Alex and I had a home already, but since we plan to move to New York, I must settle on apartment living. Moving into another apartment is an option, but the hassle of moving is just not worth it. Plus, the fact that once you paint a wall a color, you need to change it back once the lease is over. We already painted one wall and, quite honestly, it was a rushed color choice. BECAUSE....on our first week of moving, red wine splattered and stained the wall. Don't ask, I just have that luck. I guess dreaming and pinning on Pinterest will have to do until we get a house of our own.

For the love of bomber jackets





Jacket: Equipment On Sale Here Top: Nordstrom Skirt: Dolce Vita Purse: Clare Vivier   Sneakers: Perforated Leather Vans 

This equipment bomber is quickly becoming my favorite outerwear piece in my closet. I always love one stand out piece in my look and this for sure fits the bill. It's a luxe feeling fabric and the varsity style look is perfect for sprucing up a casual look. When looking for a perfect Miami appropriate jacket I think light, versatile and a fun style. I love that this also looks cute wrapped around my waist.

And yes, I got my purse for my birthday!!
