{ Autumnal Elements: Burgundy skinny scarf, Gray denim & Peep-toe booties }

By Thursday, August 25, 2016 2

Happy Thursday! I am so excited because after months of counting down the days, we are homeward bound tomorrow for a few weeks. My bags are pretty much packed and I am more than ready to go! Today's look was created with a few autumnal elements in mind: snakeskin, suede, and rich color. Two of my favorite fall ...

{ The Must-Have Denim Jacket }

By Wednesday, August 24, 2016 6

I'm running on four hours of sleep and three cups of coffee, so I'm dragging a bit today. Most of you have probably heard the news, but Italy is grieving after experiencing a massive 6.2 earthquake in the wee hours of the morning. Although the epicenter was about 65 miles northeast of Rome, the tremors were strong enough that it ...

{ Vintage Accent: Olive tee, Silk scarf & Cropped denim }

By Tuesday, August 23, 2016 4

Dressing up a basic tee-and-jeans combo is one of my favorite go-to combinations: it's easy to put together and always sophisticated when you add a few elegant accessories. It's no secret that I love silk scarves, and this is another one I inherited from my husband's grandmother. I love how they add a chic accent to any outfit and the orange ...

Ciao, everyone! I hope all of you enjoyed the weekend and your Monday is off to a good start. Our weekend was pretty low-key since we're prepping to leave for vacation on Friday. We are headed home to Virginia for a few weeks and are pretty excited since we haven't been back since last November. I'm ...

{ Telling Time with Christian Paul Watches }

By Thursday, August 18, 2016 12

In an age when cell phones have taken the place of wrist watches, many people (including myself) have simply quit wearing one. In the past, I always put on a watch before I left the house---especially when I was teaching full-time---but over the last few years, I've hardly worn one at all. That is, until I ...

{ Throwback Stripes: Button-down shirt, Denim shorts & Wedge sandals }

By Wednesday, August 17, 2016 6

This little striped shirt from J. Crew is proof that classics never go out of style (much like the Fiat in these photos!) It could nearly be called vintage, too, because I'm pretty sure I bought it somewhere at the beginning of college. Has it really been over fourteen years since I started college?! Now ...

{ Utility Vest Worn as a Top }

By Tuesday, August 16, 2016 5

Thrown over tees, worn with shorts, or paired with jeans and boots, there's no denying that a utility vest is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe. It's definitely a great transitional piece to have for late summer/early fall and I find myself reaching for one when I start itching to add ...

{ Casual in Montecassino: V-neck tee, Distressed denim & Adidas sneakers }

By Monday, August 15, 2016 8

Happy Monday, and Buon Ferragosto to those of you in Italy! Today is the official start of the summer holiday season and Rome is absolutely dead right now since most locals have fled the city for vacation. It was also nice for my husband and I since we both got today off from work! We took ...
