Date Night + News(!)




{DKNY dress (similar), Kate Spade New York clutch, St. Johns Bay coat, Kenneth Jay Lane earrings (just $10 from Rent the Runway!)

Guys. It's cold. In case you can't tell from my suffering face and the fact that half of these pictures were taken inside, I struggled a lot throughout the taking of these photos. All in the name of fashion! I wore this last week when my boyfriend and I ventured out into the Floridian Tundra (by that I mean 40 degrees. No shame.) to celebrate his birthday. This dress is another major steal from the amazing Saks sale earlier this month and I love, love, love it.

Now onto NEWS!
I am very excited to announce that I am Rent the Runway at University of Florida's newest Social Media rep! Check us out on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, and join me in saving 90% off retail!

On Point

{Vintage sweater (love this Free People one) and earrings, Mine blouse}

I am just now discovering the sweet magic of adding a collared shirt under a sweater (yes, I am aware how many decades behind I am. I do believe even Queen Elizabeth knew more about layering than I do... case in point).  Anyway, this chunky sweater was my grandmother's and I adore the warm, soft wool. 

What are your favorite fashion tricks?

ToS On Pinterest



It seems now that school is back in session, I'm more obsessed with Pinterest than ever. I mean, there really is no better escape from the rain and the homework and the boring brick buildings than a little virtual trip to Paris or Saks!

Military-Inspired



{Elizabeth and James blazer (similar from Nordstrom), DKNY jeans, Liz Claiborne bag (this season's version on sale!), Levity wedges (similar), Jones New York sunglasses, vintage jewelry}

Real talk. This blazer was 96% off at Nordstrom Rack, the only one left, and just my size. This was a sign from the universe, right? (As the cashier rung it up, I swear my heart skipped a beat when he said it was just $20.) Luckily, I adore it and can't wait to spend the rest of this warm winter weather in it!

Blue for Brunch



{Wet Seal tee, 5/48 skirt (similar and on sale), Coach bag, Dexter flats}

Not to brag, but the weather in Florida was fantastic this weekend- perfect for brunch outside by the Butterfly Garden. I scored this skirt from Saks Off Fifth during their insane sale (which is still going on!) and I love how amazingly versatile it is. Expect to see me in this many, many times in the future.

Home & Away

{Anthropologie mug (black and white version in stock)}


Apparently "Home and Away" is an Australian television show which I had mistaken for the awful Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman fare, "Far and Away." Regardless, I am happy to be back at school, at my own space and happily finding places for all of my new goodies acquired over the holidays. I have been ogling this Anthropologie mug for months so when I spotted the gold "A" on sale(!) just had to have it!

What was your favorite holiday steal?

Blues and Greens


{Forever 21 cape, Gap pants (this season's version), Gap sweater (similar and on sale), Dexter flats, Coach bag}

I cannot get enough of this bag. I have sworn by neutral totes my whole life, but recently little green bags have won my heart over.  Also, if anyone knows how Coach's monogram policy works, please share! I am looking to get the beige tag done with my initials.  

Happy 2014!
