I'm a big fan of embellished pieces (as seen with my jeweled clutch, embellished sweatshirt, embellished beanie, and embellished sweater) and these bows are just the cutest! Also, I "borrowed" these flat boots from my friend and they haven't made the trip back to her closet so I've been enjoying them. :) They are a size and a half too big but I just double up on the socks which has worked throughout the freezing winter!
I love dressing comfortably and I literally feel like I'm wearing a cozy sweatshirt when I wear this dress. To make it work appropriate, I added a blazer and a belt but on a weekend I'll wear it alone. If you don't own a sweater/sweatshirt dress, you must get one! It's so versatile but also comfy so you can feel like you're wearing sweats without looking like you are. Throw on a pretty necklace and you're set!

I just realized that my coffee says "Brittney" on it but I promise it's mine! My coffee was a very real necessity during the freezing polar vortex day from hell and I think Brittanny ordered our coffees while I changed for the billionth time (which by the way is only a slight exaggeration). Actually, there was a guy who stopped me and asked if it was his imagination or do I keep coming back in different outfits. Ha!
Have you guys ever heard of Minted.com? If not, you should definitely check them out. It's a website where designers get to compete for the chance to sell their designs. I absolutely love the concept because there are so many graphic designers who struggle to gain exposure and get their designs out there. This website gives these independent designers the opportunity to reach a large audience and build their careers. Minted has an incredible wall art print selection and some amazing limited art prints (check out the full selection here: http://www.minted.com/wall-art-prints).
I've been on an art print kick lately as I've been giving my office at work a mini makeover. Most of you know that I'm a therapist so I want my room to be inviting and warm. Two weeks ago, I got a new officemate as he and I work different days. He's been kind enough to let me keep my office exactly how it is although he's teased me on many occasions that he's putting up huge football posters on my walls. Let's just say that my room is kind of (ok, extremely) feminine. For example, I have a typography print that says "Never let anyone dull your sparkle" and a lot of floral and butterfly art prints. Haaa! My office is definitely a reflection of who I am and it's been fun decorating it. I wanted to share a few of my favorite art prints and typography art prints with you from Minted; the first one is something I'd 100% put up in my office, and of course don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the post for a chance to win a $25 Minted credit!
I'd like to introduce you to my new love: my Loeffler Randall mirrored polka dot flats. They're my favorites even though they're almost a size too big; don't tell me you've never done that for a shoe you loved!
This dress is a bright purple in real life and it was a big hit with my young clients when I wore it last week. A few of my younger clients discovered my blog recently and it's funny because that was a big concern of mine when I first started working as a therapist. At this point though, I've decided that I enjoy running my blog too much to let it go. And having a variety of interests is part of life so it makes me more well-rounded. :)
I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in my desire for warmer weather, right? Let's talk spring for a little bit! When the snow becomes a bit depressing, I start looking at all the beautiful spring arrivals at my favorite stores. Sole Society has been killing it with their amazing new shoes, bags, and accessories for spring. I'm in love with my tassel necklace and laser cut wedges (you might remember my obsession with all things laser cut as seen with my clutch, my boots, my bag, and my other bag); I feel like the laser cut wedges are so versatile and I'm going to get so much use out of them this spring!
And don't think I'm not going to discuss this dress. The color, the cut, the texture.... it's everything I love and I will be wearing it again and again all spring and summer long! Cynthia Steffe makes the prettiest dresses (Didn't you love this one?) and I want every single dress in their latest spring collection. I was lucky enough to get a look at their summer and fall collection and I already have a substantial wish list. :)
I recently showed two of my friends a floral bag I've been crushing on and they both looked at me and said that it looked like an old lady bag. I personally still love it and think it's so sweet! Florals really are subjective to each person, I guess. I thought I'd share some of the ones I've been loving lately with you guys. What do you think of my picks?
1. Floral blazer I love the neon and bright colors and the bold black trim.
2. Tiek flats I've been dying for these for a long time now. I love the fun texture!
3. floral bow pumps These look like a gorgeous watercolor; I am obsessed with the stunning color mix!
