LITTLE LUSTS

Hi Guys!! I feel so badly for ignoring my beloved blog for the past few months and I hope you haven't forgotten about me! In all honesty, I have been a bit lazy because Instagram makes it so easy for me to post things that I would typically save to post here. 
Sometimes Im worried that what I post on Instagram will be too redundant if I post it again on my blog. Anyways, Im really excited to be back! 
As much as I love an great inspiration outfit post, I love posts about the little things that people are currently lusting over. Sometimes its just a new candle or bracelet that can highlight my week! 
Do you agree?? Here are some of my current mini splurges and favorites. 
I will admit, I only made point to look for these Byredo perfumes because I love the chic little bottle. I thought for sure I would be unhappy with them, but I was so happy with Gypsy Water that I went back a couple weeks later and chose La Tulipe
Im so picky about perfumes but I am truly loving these. 
My new Bijoux Spike Necklaces' large, brilliant crystals are so fun to layer and perfect for the season!
Sometimes, something as simple as luxe candle can really brighten up my week. I recently walked into a boutique where they were burning this Missoni Candle; the entire shop smelled lovely. 
I was sold.
My new Super Luxe Anywhere Tassels have only been available to purchase by mailing me, but they' are now listed on my shop! 
If you love beautiful, statement bag charms as much as I do, you will truly love these! 
New Bandits for the summer!!

Thank you all SO much for reading and commenting! Im so happy to be posting! xx alex

IN THE NUDE

Ive had such a fun experience collaborating with Nordstrom Rack! Recently I attended the 
private shop event at the new Brooklyn store! I was able be one of the first to hunt the racks and find some of my favorite designers for unbelievably low prices! Im typically drawn to classic pieces and high quality basics, so when I came across this perfect Vince tee and Alexander Wang silky shorts for 75% off, I truly felt like a genius, a shop genius!

UNISEX

I don't know what it is about shopping for basics in the men's department, but its something that my girl Crystal and I have been really loving lately. There's something about the relaxed, cool look of an a slightly oversized mens tee. While shopping for some basics we came across these sweat shorts at H&M. I roll them up a couple times and wear them low in the front for the prefect relaxed look. Pair them with some classic, good quality pieces for a casually tailored look. I never skimp on the accessories either... especially in the handbag and jewelry!

EMBELLISHED CLASSICS

Hi Everyone! Spring is definitely in full effect around here! I wake up to baby birds singing outside of my window everyday lately.... and to a new a baby bunny hopping around my living room! Yes, if you haven't seen via my Instagram, I recently adopted Bao a little friend. It was about time, and now he has a little buddy to keep him company. I can't believe how well they get along. It melts my heart. 
I love these new suede drawstring shorts and embellished denim jacket! Two classic designs with really cool twists, that make them super unique! I wore my new Angelic top, the perfect flowy option that everyone needs in their closet; and unique accessories like this new necklace and high top espadrilles! For me, is really all about the details and classic pieces. 
I hope everyone is ready for Easter! I know my bunnies are! xx alex
