Since we're on the subject of Shopbop... I have to say, I freakin love Shopbop. It's definitely one of my favorite online stores. Everything is just so fancy pants and comes in beautiful boxes wrapped so perfectly. I especially love when they have great deals. Because when they have great deals, they have great deals.

"Simplicity is the glory of expression."
- Walt Whitman
Sophie Hulme. She gets me. She gets my love of gold and black, simplicity, and quality materials. She gets that minimal doesn't have to be boring. And that gold plating is all that's really needed to bring out the 'holy shit that's stunning' in all of our accessories.

Avocado toast is probably my favorite breakfast ever. Not probably. It really just is. It's so simple, but I think the simplicity of it makes it that much more appealing. I'm a big believer than good food doesn't necessarily mean tons of ingredients. Sometimes, it's all about the simple things in life, and avocado toast is a prime example of that perspective. Avocado toast and a great cup of coffee, that is.
I've been swooning over these Stella McCartneys ever since I saw Anh wearing them on 9to5Chic. My only problem with them was the heel height. I prefer something much higher (at least 4 inches). So when I found this Mango version, I immediately fell in love. Seriously, this shoe obsession is getting out of hand. But at least this time it's the cheaper version I'm in love with.

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
- Thomas A. Edison
Mondays are often uttered with the same level of affection as a dentist appointment. They signify the end of fun-filled weekends and the recommencement of work and responsibility. But it's time we give Mondays a break and think of them as what they really are: a new day for which we should all be grateful!

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air...”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Anyone who knows me can tell you how much I love getting dressed up. I'm the type of person to mandate a dress code (actually requiring dresses be worn) at my wine & cheese parties just to find an excuse to wear one of the many dresses in my repertoire. But sometimes, casual is the way to go.

I went to home last week, and it seems I have an affinity towards takings photos in front of steel structures. The week consisted of two weddings, lots of romping around the streets of LA, and unfortunately a lot of hacking. I caught some bug and was coughing throughout most of the trip. I got my boyfriend sick too, which sucked because we were both so lethargic, but wasn't so bad because we just ended up in bed watching the Olympics together.

I'm not much for perfume. I usually put on a scented lotion (because, really what lotions aren't scented) and am always wary of mixing scents for fear of assaulting others' nostrils. I've only had two "signature scents" and they are both Bath & Body Works related (creamy coconut in high school, and sweet pea in college). But I've felt it's been time for a more mature signature, something womanly but not elderly.
