I’m a sucker for blush pink. Anything pink, actually.

Home accents, flowers and paper goods are the usual culprits, as I almost always steer clear of the girly hue for clothing. Pink can be too much of a pop, even gaudy, but not when it comes to the barely-there shade for these super cute slides. They’re the perfect mix of pretty + playful (and fairly practical, too). Currently on sale at Piperlime, they were a no-brainer buy.

With classes all day on Mondays, I threw on this comfy waffle-knit tunic sweater for my usual go-to casual attire (+ a little extra punch of pink) for a jam-packed schedule.

How do you wear pink in the winter?

A strong start to the week always requires a good look, especially as we head into the (somewhat dreaded) winter months. I love a good autumn-worthy outfit, so let’s hope snow doesn’t come too soon!

To jump into November, I’ve been eyeing this Zara plaid scarf (above, right) for weeks and finally gave in – the perfect combination of shades for Thanksgiving and the increasingly brisk season. The oversized striped scarf (left) is a colorful addition to any bundled up ensemble. Clearly, I have a weakness for a good plush scarf…

The flats, though perforated, are a fun take on a classic, solid slip-on – good for a little playful pop just up until the snow starts to accumulate.

Why polaroids? I love the idea of veering away from all things digital and capturing the moment in another artistic sense – just a fun idea for the coming weeks as the semester winds down.

A phone case update is long overdue – I’m in love with this clear one from Kate Spade. What better for a winter pick-me-up than a little reminder of sunshine?

And most importantly (or so I feel), the panama hat is this year’s ultimate accessory. It’s just about time to finally add one to my own wardrobe, and this soft brown shade is just muted enough to pair perfectly with many layered neutrals.

What are your chilly weather must haves?

spring days & daisies

tank – Cotton On (similar here & here) | jeans – American Eagle | sandals – Dolce Vita (similar here) | bag – Rebecca Minkoff | watch – Fossil (old, similar here) | sunglasses – Ray-Ban

The temps are dropping slightly here in Stellies (eh, 60s & low 70s), which means warmer pieces are popping up everywhere. Trying to channel the typical spring apparel (as it would be at home, although it’s technically fall over here), I found this daisy-print tank today to go over a light yellow lace bandeau and paired it with my favorite black jeans. Simple & sweet – so ready for spring!
