Denim, florals, & dots!

You guys, I'm seriously a little embarrassed for going so long without updating the blog. I never really meant for it to happen. One thing just kept leading to another and I got out of my posting groove. 

The good news in all of this, however, is that I have been documenting my looks and I have three full outfit posts almost ready to go. Three!! Today's post will kick off the trio of catch-up outfit posts.
As always, thank you for being amazing and for following along in my style journey. I really missed you!!

Crossbody Lovin.

Michael Kors Jet Set Item Flap Crossbody Purse c/o Macy's* (Exact here)//
Shop outfit details and similar items below
I don't know about you, but by the time Spring rolls around each year, I am just dying to get out of my repetitive winter uniform slump. And after months and months of wearing the same sweaters, boots, and heavy coats, I can't wait to throw on a light jacket and a pair of flats and run out the door. And really, who doesn't get excited about all the new Spring designs, colors, prints, and BAGS?! I rest my case. Springtime is the best time. 
(Other than Fall. Because, let's be honest, Fall is right up there with Spring in terms of seasonal awesome-ness.) 

This Spring season, I am absolutely loving bomber jackets and small crossbody bags. The former, I've always loved. I mean, there are very few ways that you can go wrong with a chic little fitted jacket. The latter, I've fallen in love with relatively recently. I think my love for crossbody bags came from carrying so much literal bulk on my person over the Winter. So, in preparation for my Spring wardrobe, I thought-- the less room I have to store junk in, the less clutter I will have in my purse. And the less cluttered my purse, the less time it will take for me to quickly find my phone and snap a pic of those super cute shoes that I've been eyeing. Hypothetically speaking. ;)
Give me a beautiful crossbody bag that will house just my bare essentials and I will wear that baby until it goes out of style. 

How do you guys feel about crossbody bags? Love them? Hate them? I'd love to hear your opinions in the comments!

Ann Blanche Spring Giveaway!


Today marks the first official day of Spring. 
(Can I get an Amen up in here?!) 

Today is actually twice as special for me because this long-awaited first day of Spring is also the Persian New Year! 
During our new year we visit with loved ones, eat way too much food, and exchange gifts. So, to celebrate this tradition of gift-giving (and since I can't feed delicious Persian food to all of you), I figured-- why not host another giveaway with the one and only Ann Blanche?! 

One lucky gal will win a beautiful pair of Ann Blanche flats AND a gorgeous summer scarf. Just use the Rafflecopter app below to enter.

Happy Spring, friends! 


The small print: Giveaway ends on Friday, March 27th, and is open to U.S. and Canada residents only. Winner will be announced on the Hello Gorgeous Facebook page and must claim prize within 48 hours. If prize is left unclaimed within this time, a new winner will be chosen.

Turtlenecks + Hope.

It's that time of year again--
The time when it feels like it's been Winter for approximately twenty seven months.
The time when those of us living in cold climates have worn the same sweaters and pants and tights for months on end.
So, what's a girl to do??
Pair cozy tops with fun bottoms that give you a glimmer of hope for warmer months to come, that's what!
Spring is right around the corner... I can feel it!

Ann Blanche New Year's Giveaway!-CLOSED.


Usually I'm not a big proponent of of New Year's resolutions. I think making big life changes should happen when you're ready and not necessarily because it's the turn of the calendar year. But, something feels different this year. 
I'm excited about turning over a new leaf and I actually have a whole list of resolutions. Most of them are uber exciting things like: be more organized, don't save a task for tomorrow when you could do it today. And the always popular: get back in shape. 
(Although, to my defense on the last point, my gym unexpectedly closed this past Fall. Not being able to lift and do BodyPump anymore was absolutely devastating. But, one of the gym owners just opened a brand spanking new gym. So, I can't wait to get back into the game and regain the tone and muscle that I've lost!)

Like many, one of my other resolutions has to do with personal style. In 2015, I want to continue having fun and experimenting with fashion and my everyday style. And what better way to kick off this particular resolution than by giving away a pair of gorgeous ballet flats from Ann Blanche?! 
One lucky winner will be able to *step* into the new year with a pair of these fabulous flats! (Seriously, they are SO cute & versatile.) Just use the Rafflecopter app below to enter. 

Good luck and Happy New Year, Loves! Here's to an amazing 2015!
(P.S. I will be back to regular outfit posts soon!)
