stand out // with {city seat}

I recently discovered a fresh & functional new brand, City Seat.  I had to share this with you guys because they’re born & bred in Brooklyn, made in America, and can make our daily lives just a little bit easier.  My favorite part about it?  The personalization.  Right now, they’re the only personalized bike seat cover on the market.  To quote Ian from What A Girl Wants, “why fit in when you were born to stand out?”  Word, Ian.  Check it out below.

feathers + leathers

winter can take us into a slump.  whether it be our gym routines, social lives, or our wardrobes that suffer- it really takes a toll!  that’s why i’ve tried to snag a few out-of-the-ordinary pieces that i can wear in the winter.  pieces that bring back that fuzzy feeling (& even feel fuzzy!)  pieces that add a little fun back into the woes of winter.  i think it worked – see for yourself below.  i fully embrace the RBF all day, but sometimes you just can’t take yourself too seriously!

twirl tuesday // a {bold} color becomes a cool accent

IMG_5129

on my tippy toes, can you tell i’m ready to twirl?!  i’m giving off all sorts of vibes – & my mischievousness can’t be hidden from the camera.

fancy @ the flatiron // {florals} + felines

14

this may be my favorite photoshoot to date.  what’s not to love?!  florals, felines, & the flatiron, oh my!  as you can see by my Instagram posts leading up to this & the title here, I am all about the F’s.  all of the alliteration, all of the Fs.  little did I know these were a few of my favorite things!  somehow I’m feeling fancy in this outfit, but why?  all it really is is a Target blazer over the easiest white tee & flowy skirt combo in all the land.

to me, it’s fancy because of the mix of textures & angles.  it’s not about what you spent, where you’re going, or even why you’re wearing it.  it’s about how you pair everything together – attitude included.  and yes, playful counts!
