flower power

as you know, statement earrings have been having a big moment of late, and rebecca de ravenel’s bon bon earrings were last year’s star of the show. for spring 2K18, supersized is still hotter than ever, but taking a more organic silhouette- meet the statement flower.

lucky for us, the chicas (and chicos) at zara are on top of it, with their own $20 version for a similar look (there is also an exact dupe on etsy here). i plan to double up 2x the flower power, with a breezy floral dress, straw bag and textured slides.

1– topshop (similar to this one i wore)

2– sam edelman

3– aranaz sierra

4– johanna ortiz

5– loeffler randall

6– mar y sol

so bold and beachy! im sure the personalities are as creative as the outfits. I love how the bright colors, beading and tropical vibes are such a striking contrast to the plush bundled up glitter/fur/velvet of everywhere else in the country right now (& especially in nyc). each of these snaps captures deeply personal style, but also some individual items that are practically art themselves. such great inspiration for mixing and matching.

get the look yourself with some basel-worthy finds:


gingham top


emilia earrings


wrap front top


canvas espadrilles


round sunglasses


ruffled dress


vintage looking bag


midi skirt

hope you have a great start to the week! i have about 23,432 parties ahead and 0 things to wear, should prove to be interesting! xx

5 under $50

some chic steals and deals to get you through your week– 5 of my current favorites, all under $50

#1 zara fleece jacketone of my best purchases this fall, half coat/half sweater, this blanket style feels soft as a bathrobe but is tailored enough to wear to work. see me debuting it on insta here.


#2 beaded tassels. ladies in love with the oscar de la renta tassels, look no further. this etsy shop has jaw dropping identical options all for $49


#3 h&m biker jeans – pair with a cozy sweatshirt, beanie and sneaks for a perfect errand running outfit.


#4 western belt – as many of us know, the model/trendy fashionista clan has been rocking western style belts for some time. while i am a little skeptical on how long this fad will stick around, at $6 you can test drive it for yourself and say goodbye when its on to the next thing.


#5 twist-front teewhile technically it rings in slightly above $50, if you sign up for the club monaco email program you can get it for $50.15 (does anyone else think of isla fisher in bachelorette when you hear club monaco? if you havent seen this movie, just do it). my friends know i am notoriously cheap for buying tees— my go to’s are always scoop neck t-shirts from h&m, Target turtlenecks and long sleeved jersey ones from the cynthia rowley for TJmaxx line. seriously, i never pay more than $30– because i end up throwing them away after a season or two and buying all new. however, the detail on this one makes it worth the extra dough and i made the mistake of trying it on at the store– lit-er-a-lly-yyyy the softest. sold.


***honorable mention to these amazing dv for Target mule boots ringing in for only $27!!! you, my bootie friends, didn’t get featured in the top 5 because you arent available online and/or in stores anywhere in my size. grrrrr. so i didnt want you gals to feel the sadness/anger/disappointment flooding my emotions when i see them. target reps— call me, i want them. their parent brand dolce vita has them online here at a much higher price. nnneeeew thank you.
