Leather Love

Me & Emily from Life With Emily

Tops: J. Crew  + Nordstrom | Pants: Shopbop {on sale!} | Handbag: ASOS {loving this nude version} | Bracelets: J. Crew + Stella & Dot 1 + 2 c/o | Watch: Michael Kors | Necklaces: Forever 21 + Poshlocket c/o | Sunnies: Prada | Earrings: Poshlocket c/o | Shoes: Kelsi Dagger | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Volupte" Lipstick #30

One of my favorite things to do in the mornings before getting my day started is catch up on my beloved fashion blogs.  Emily, from Life with Emily is definitely one of my favorite daily reads.  She does such an amazing job with finding affordable, key pieces that every girl needs in her wardrobe and I adore her posts.  Click here to see more of our collaboration and how she styled her leather skinnies!

I've wanted a pair of leather pants for quite some time now, but could never find the perfect, affordable pair.  When I spotted these beauties {and on sale}, I couldn't resist.  Although my mind is headed towards preparing for warmer weather, I have to face reality and realize that sunshine is quite a few weeks away.  So, I want to get as much use out of these babies as possible!  Hint, hint--you might be seeing these a lot in the next few posts.  These pants are literally like wearing pajamas!  So comfortable, yet fashion forward at the same time.  Definitely a wardrobe staple that I have finally added to my closet--and I don't regret a thing! :)

Have a lovely day! xx.

Today's Essentials

Good Morning Loves,

We all have things that we just cannot live without.  For some it's an ipod, headphones and work out shoes...for others, it's sunnies, a day planner and mascara.  Hey, we all have our thing.  So, on this {not so glamorous} Tuesday, I thought I would post a few of my daily essentials:

1.) My new 2013 Calender from Brittany Fuson Paper.  I am so in love with her art work and I'm using this as my day to day blog planner.  Sometimes it takes a little more organization for me to get my stuff together ahead of time and this baby does the trick!  If you haven't checked out her site, head on over-you won't regret it!

2.) My beloved Laura Mercier lip gloss.  If you haven't noticed, I literally wear this in almost every outfit post.  I'm trying so hard to branch out, but I looove this product.  My favorite color is Violet, but I've tried a few others and adore them all.

3.) These tiny little bow studs have become my go-to earring.  I love the simplicity of them and you can never go wrong with a bow!

4.) I know, I know, another bow.  But, did you hear what I said earlier--you can never have too many bows! Just ask Kate Spade. :) With this freezing cold weather we've been having here in SC, these {genuine} leather gloves are a must.  They also come in this beautiful bordeaux color.

5.) What would I do without my oversized gold watch?! By far, my favorite accessory and definitely something I never leave the house without.  It's one of those things that if your house caught on fire...okay yeah, you get the point. :)

6.) These are my new babies.  I contemplated buying these for so long and finally got them a few weeks ago--they're amazeballs. Period.

7.) My Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet is another daily favorite.  I wear this right beside my watch every day and absolutely adore it.  Even though it has spikes on it, it's so comfortable to wear!

8.) A sweet friend of mine recently sent me this chic Starbucks sleeve.  I died the moment I saw it!  I'm obsessed with coffee {especially Starbucks} and gold {if you haven't noticed} so this had my name all over it.

9.) Kate Spade bobby pins. Need I say more? I'm the girl who is constantly changing her hairstyle 8 times a day, so carrying around bobby pins is a must for me.  I also love these fun colors for laid back beach days.

10.) I'm a true MAC girl at heart. 85% of my daily make up is by MAC Cosmetics and I can't get enough of it.  They're always coming out with fun, new things and I don't think I ever grew out of the "play in your make up" stage. :)

11.) This mint green nail polish quickly became one of my favorites! You can wear it any time of year, but I especially love it in the Spring and Summer with a glowing, sunkissed tan. 

12.) Last but not least, my favorite Mascara.  I'm a mascara junkie!  I feel like I've tried just about every brand and type out there and this is by far my favorite.  I never leave the house without mascara!

What are some of your daily essentials that are not on my list?  I'd love to check them out!

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!

All in the Details...

Outfit Details:

Top: H&M | Pants: ASOS | Belt: J. Crew {loving this new style for Spring/Summer} | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: J. Crew + Stella & Dot c/o + Tory Burch | Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff {similar} | Necklace: Poshlocket c/o {my newest obsession} | Earrings: Poshlocket c/o {the "Megan"-how perfect, right? :)} | Sunnies: Prada | Shoes: Guess | Lips: MAC liner {Plum} + Laura Mercier {Violet}

Hope you guys had a great weekend! We had a pretty relaxing couple of days ourselves--slept in, had a little breakfast in bed, ate waaay too much and like everyone else, attended a Superbowl party! 100% for the halftime show, of course- which I thought was amazeballs. :)

Anyway, so as most of you know, my favorite part of an outfit is the details. Sometimes ordinary outfits can feel boring, but add a fun belt, a little jewelry and some fab shoes and it's instantly chic.  I'm obsessed with these Poshlocket jewels! The pave necklace and tiny bow earrings (named the "Megan") can't help but make you happy. Having a rough day? Just order a fun new piece of jewelry to add to your collection-- it always helps me!

Here are a few of my favorites that I'm currently craving:

Have a lovely day!
