‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Wedding Gowns!

If you know me at all, you know I’m just crazy about Tiffany’s! So when I found out there is a new line of wedding dresses all inspired by Audrey Hepburn as the fabulous Holly Golightly, I was beyond excited! The Bridal Collection was created by Reem Arca for Spring of 2018. The beautiful gowns come in both white and black, paying tribute to Holly’s classic black gowns from the film. 


Sadly, I’ll have to admire these gowns a la distance. But for you future brides-to-be who love Holly Golightly’s classic style, be sure to at least try on these glamorous gowns!

My Adventures In Cooking (& Why I’m Going To Start)!

Breakfast at Tiffanys, Audrey Hepburn

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Now that I have my own apartment, & more specifically my own kitchen, I am determined to start getting creative in the food department. I’ve been experimental in the dessert areas of baking, but I’ve always stuck to my tried & true recipes I know from growing up. Pork chops, tacos, roast, meat loaf, & pasta, to name a few. While this is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, I want to branch out & discover new foods. I also want to get more invested in my baking. I have a kitchen aid mixer that has hardly been touched, so making cookies from scratch is on the top of my list!

Now, don’t get me wrong. I know I won’t become a chef overnight. It takes practice, skill, & trial and error. I’ve had my fair share of recipes that flopped (some literally), but I’ve also had some delicious recipes that I’m proud of. Pinterest has been an amazing inspiration, but I haven’t had the determination to actually make what I’m pinning. So I’m going to go through my cooking related boards & find things to make. I guess this is a resolution. Try my hand at a few recipes & hope for the best!

Comment below if you have any funny cooking/baking stories, or if you are going to start trying new recipes!

Gifts for Mom!

Shopping for the moms in your life can be difficult. It feels like they already have everything. I think the best thing to do is ask them directly what they would like for Christmas (My mom wants the FRIENDS DVD Set). At least then you can get them something they will really love! 🙂

1. ‘To Catch a Thief’ Pajamas

I like to imagine I'm as stylish as Audrey Hepburn in my PJs:

Accessorize With Headbands!

Hair accessories are nothing new, but I feel like headbands are ones that make a comeback every few years. Typically thought of as a preppy accessory, headbands offer a little bit of glam while still having a sophisticated feel. The most recent headband queen I can think of is Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. She took headbands to the next level. I mean, she looked on point every time she donned a headband. This accessory totally completed nearly every outfit she wore, & she didn’t look like a little girl wearing them.

If you decide to try this trend, do it! My advice is to experiment. Look at the width of the band, color, & added details. Thicker bands will be much bolder, and thinner bands tend to look a little more elegant. While added details can look fun, don’t go overboard. Remember, you want sophistication!

Fall Basic: Trench Coat!

Fall Basic: Trench Coat!

Winter is getting close, but fall is not letting us forget it is still here. Rain, wind, & cold temperatures are becoming the norm. While this isn’t my favorite part of fall, there is always the beautiful fall clothes to look forward to. That brings me to the classic trench coat. This wardrobe basic is the epitome of iconic. Worn by classic icons throughout the years, including the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, & Taylor Swift, this coat will always be a basic worth having!

I think camel or tan colored trenches are the easiest ones to pull off, plus they go with any outfit. However, if you are on the bolder side go for color!

D.I.Y. Halloween Costumes!

D.I.Y. Halloween Costumes!

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I can’t believe how fast October has gone by! Halloween is a week away! Throughout my Halloween adventures, I’ve found that the last minute ones were always the best. While these plans can be fun & exciting, it can be difficult to come up with an awesome spur-of-the-moment costume. A few of my last minute costumes included a baby (pig tales, footie pajamas, stuffed animal), and a mouse (hair tied like mouse ears, all black, eyeliner whiskers). “I’m a mouse, duh!” But seriously, these were great costumes that got me a lot of compliments.

I came up with a few more ideas as well:

  • Minnie Mouse
  • Holly Golightly
  • Mary Poppins
  • Mean Girls

 

These costumes can be put together with minimal shopping additions. Most of these things are probably already in your closet, so putting the outfit together should be a snap!

Comment below with your last minute costume ideas & stories!
