As you guys probably already know, I am a huge fan of thrifting and second hand. Sometimes life gets super busy though and the idea of browsing through crowded racks in hopes of finding something good just sounds exhausting. That’s where thredUP comes in! ThredUP is a consignment store that sells Women’s and kids clothing and carries brands like Madewell, Urban Outfitters, Zara, and more. I found these Citizens of Humanity jeans on there and they were practically new. Good brands and a good deal….pretty sweet right? AND IT’S GOOD FOR THE EARTH. That’s a nice bonus.
I also can’t get enough of this backpack from Armadio. I’m sure you guys will be seeing it a lot more, it’s going to be a staple piece for me!
As part of my last experience with I.W. Harper, I’ve teamed up with them to show my modern derby style. There’s nothing like sipping on some whisky with some friends especially after a fun event like the Kentucky Derby! Even though I have never been, it’s always fun to imagine what I would wear to something like it!
I would start my outfit with something that I feel comfortable in and is true to my style. This Reformation dress feels like it’s straight out of the 90s, and I love it for that. The wrap fit and floral print gives it such a feminine feel and I think a perfect match for a spring party (or derby of course). And if you really want to go all out for a derby, of course a straw hat is the finishing touch for the outfit!
Try out this I.W. Harper cocktail recipe, perfect for a Derby or just spring in general!! I gotta try this out, it looks so cute too! (Please drink responsibly.) Vinceremos Julep Courtesy of Marie Zahn, Hawthorn Beverage Group

In light of all of the Coachella festivities and festival season, I’ve teamed up with Shoes.com to share some perfect shoes that are fit for desert dancing and musical memories (haha yes that was a bit corny). But seriously, Shoes.com has been one of my new favorite places to shoe shop. There are so many options and so many brands that I love, including Superga and Matisse!
I was instantly drawn to the vintage 70s vibe seeping out of these platforms! They made me feel so tall and long which I think would be perfect for a festival to be able to tower over the crowd to see all of the stages! It might take me a bit of practice to be able to dance well in these (without spraining my ankle)!
To continue on with my previous post, I thought I would share some more cold shoulder/off the shoulder inspiration for those of you who love the trend too and want to try it! I particularly love a girly, cold shoulder top or dress, paired with some vintage denim or some sneakers to add a bit of edge and something unexpected.
I’m drooling over every single one of these cold shoulder pieces from Farfetch. I love the funky prints an well as the minimalist designs that take this cool trend to the next level. This is one of those trends that I can see staying around for awhile and especially easily transitioned into summer!
