Inspirational Tuesdays #148

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Inspirational Tuesdays are back! My blogging has been on and off lately due to being crazy busy with work and life - and this series was one of my favorites to do. It definitely gets me inspired and even more motivated to post (yes, you know how we have our lazy days!). I also love that it's now autumn, my favorite season (cozy oversized sweaters, colorful leaves, hot drinks), which is the theme of this week's!

Sweet Ophelia

Hello Autumn

Friday, September 26, 2014

Hello there! This post has been long overdue -- wore this Specci studded collar top the weekend after a friend's gorgeous wedding in Stonybrook. First of all, her wedding was absolutely beautiful with ideal summer/fall transitional weather. It was right by the water and held at a small private inn with additional separate cottages behind. Although, that would be a whole other post. After a weekend of dressing up, this top was the perfect relaxed, casual look and love the slight edginess of the studs. It definitely felt luxurious for such an affordable price.

Smell the Roses

Monday, September 08, 2014

Jane Iredale is celebrating 7 years of partnership with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, with the launch of this Smell the Roses Hydration Spray ($29). 100% of all of the profits from this spray will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, in support of women affected by breast cancer. Jane Iredale also has other hydration spray scents, but this particular scent really does smell like a beautiful bouquet of roses.

It features organic Rose Damascena Flower water, which helps cleanse the skin, calms inflammation, and reduces redness. It's refreshing, and definitely handy for these stressful Fashion Week days!



You're The One For Me

Today's song is "You're The One For Me" by Great Good Fine Ok.

Faire Midnight

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Faire Collection recently launched their new fall / winter '14 line, called Midnight Collection. It was inspired by the French Belle Epoque period, featuring handmade jewelry of beautiful rich tones and textures, and ornate detailing. It includes jewelry crafted from rainforest seeds, such as tagua and acai, and sustainably sourced, upcycled bullhorn. Faire Collection also sources seeds native to the Ecuadorian Amazon! Founder and CEO Amanda Judge even took a trip there herself. It's all made by a community of fair trade artisan partners. Don't you just love those tassels too?
In honor of the new launch, I'm wearing one of their best-selling pieces, the Cha-Cha necklace. Fun name, and fun statement piece. I just love the colors - It's my way of keeping summer alive, before it's all over!
