Outfit Details: Oversized Cardigan // Lace Tank //  Black Jeggings // Beige Loafers

Happy Friday Babes! I have been in kind of a funk lately when it comes to coming up with content. I have really struggled with producing content that looks not only professional but also relatable. After doing a lot of brainstorming, I think I finally have it right. That being said, I am slightly rebranding. If you follow me on Instagram, then you  already know what I am talking about. I FINALLY found my niche! I am now focusing solely on what I love and less about what is popular and trendy. If you’ve seen my previous home decor posts, they were all farmhouse related but I am currently in the process of redoing everything. I will be having a more modern-boho look and so far, I love it! So because of all of the changes, if you’re not following me on Instagram, head over and click follow and if you are, stay tuned for lots of fun things in the near future!

Since this is my first post kicking of fall, I wanted to talk about my plans for the next couple of weeks. For starters, I plan on going to lots and lots of haunted houses. My boyfriend and I haven’t gone to many together, so I am excited to take him to some good ones. I also plan on going to a local farm for apple and pumpkin picking. I did that last year and had an absolute blast. It also makes for cute photo sessions! I am planning on drinking a lot of apple cider and pigging out on football Sundays. Last year I did a few football Sunday recipes which everyone loved, so I am planning on doing some more this year. Lastly, I am working on making a schedule for when I post, so when I have that figured out, I will update yall!

Designer Purchases + Reviews

Louis Vuitton Key Pouch – Damier Azur Canvas  $205

This key pouch is one of my favorite purchases from Louis Vuitton. I feel like if you are looking to purchase something from Louis Vuitton that doesn’t break your wallet, this is the way to go. I really got the use out of this and if you’re a college student, it is perfect. It fits so many cards and can even fit some lipgloss. Better yet, I never had an issue with the clasp coming undone so I was never worried about losing it off of my car keys. I ended up selling this on Poshmark and unfortunately they are sold out on Louis Vuitton’s website but I am looking to repurchase it in the monogram print off of The RealReal. 10/10

Gucci GG Supreme Bees Tote

$1100

I really loved this print but should have done a little more research on the style. When I received the bag, I really did love but after using it for a few weeks, it became apparent that the bag was not for me. I didn’t like how there was no zipper to close the tote up because overtime my bag would tip over or fall and everything would fall out. It was definitely made well with high quality leather but aside from that I wasn’t that big of a fan.

Gucci GG Blooms Card Case Wallet

$390

I mainly purchased this wallet because I am in love with the floral print. I like how compact it is and how I am able to fit cash inside without having to fold it up. It is made very well and I always receive so many compliments on it! If you’re looking to invest in a small wallet for a crossbody, this is the perfect size.

Louis Vuitton Medium Ring Agenda Cover

$605

This is probably one of my all time favorite designer purchases. I had my eye on this for years but never bit the bullet. I found it on The RealReal for around $400 and decided to finally buy it. I am so happy I did because I get so much use out of it. I use it for my everyday calendar, notes, blog things, and spending notes. In my opinion, the medium is the perfect size for everyday use. I purchased inserts and dividers off of Etsy.

David Yurman Cable Buckle Bracelet with Gold

$475

I have never been into wearing a lot of jewelry so I wanted to invest in good subtle pieces that will last long. I wear this bracelet 24.7 and have had no issues whatsoever. If you’re looking to invest in high quality pieces, David Yurman is the way to go!

Vintage Boho Bags

$900

I purchased this years ago right when these types of bags became really popular. I would now say that I regret this purchase fully. I ended up reselling it because it was so heavy to carry and I rarely ended up using it. Although, Vintage Boho has so many other cute bags, since I purchased this when they first became big, styles were limited and this one did not work for me.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM

$1320

This is another one of my favorite designer purchases that I get so so so much use out of. I will forever suggest getting this tote if you are looking for your first designer bag.  I have had numerous friends hop on the band wagon and even purchase one. It is the best bag for everyday use, travel, and work. It does it all! One thing that I really liked was that it came with this wristlet so you basically get two bags for one.

Gucci GG Marmont Card Case

$250

I recently sold this because I am planning on going back to the Louis Vuitton Key Pouch but I did get a lot of use out of this when it came to carrying my cards. But one thing that I didn’t like was it only fits around 6 cards.

Diptyque Paris Candle

$65

I probably will never end up burning this which makes no sense considering it is a candle but it has a good memory behind it. When I turned 24 I went to LA for the first time with my mom and grandma. We spent a day shopping on Rodeo Drive and my grandma bought me this. I love how classy and modern it looks although it is a little expensive for a candle. I guess if you want it, its worth it. Otherwise, go to Bath & Body Works haha! It does smell so very good though!!

Gucci Soho Small Leather Disco Bag

$1190

Another favorite designer purchase, I love how much this bag can fit. I wish I would of bought the black one instead but overall the bag itself is perfect! I get so much use out of it when I go out and don’t want to carry a big purse whether it be date night or a sporting event. It is so classy and simple which makes it go with pretty much anything.

Saint Laurent Monogram YSL Chevron Quilted Wallet on a Chain

$1350

I loved this bag at first but after using it for a couple weeks, I realized it was a bad purchase. I thought if I didn’t want to use it as a purse, I could use it as a wallet but it was too big to do so in my opinion. It took up a lot of room in my neverfull to the point I stopped using it. I also could barely fit a lip gloss and keys let alone my phone so I ended up selling it on Poshmark.

Gucci Sunglasses

$350

I purchased these from Nordstrom and don’t remember what the name of them are. I usually buy cheaper sunglasses because they always get scratched but I really loved these ones. They ended up breaking so I probably won’t purchase designer glasses again, lol! Hey Raybans.

David Yurman Cable Classic Bracelet

$395

As I stated with my other David Yurman bracelet, I love all of their jewelry. Cable bracelets are great for everyday wear and go with everything.

Saint Laurent Lou Lou Cosmetic Bag

$425

I used this in my everyday purse and to hold all of my makeup. I mainly put my lip gloss, lipsticks, and travel perfumes inside. As seen above, you can also use it as a clutch.

Louis Vuitton Speedy 35

$1040

This was my very first Louis Vuitton thanks to my mom! I absolutely loved it but it got annoying at times without a strap so because of that I decided to sell it on Poshmark. One thing that is nice about designer purchases is that you can get a lot of your money back since they keep their value. Something to always keep in mind. This bag was great aside from the no strap. I have had my eye on the Speedy Bandouliere so stay tuned for that!

Saint Laurent Toy Loulou Matelasse Leather Crossbody

$1190

YSL makes really cute, good quality bags but unfortunately this one did not work for me. I once again could barely fit anything inside and for the price I was super bummed. I buy most of my bags online, but in the future will always purchase in store so I can physically see it. If you’re looking for a small crossbody then I would say this would work perfectly but I like to use my crossbody daily and wouldn’t be able to fit all of my everyday items.

Amazon Black Dress

Outfit Details: Amazon Dress // Free People Denim Jacket // Steve Madden Wedges

Cheers to the second day of Fall! Today, I am sharing one of my all time favorite dresses from Amazon. I am sure if you’re on social media and follow any blogger, you have seen how big Amazon has become when it comes to the fashion world. I still prefer to buy things in-store but I did make a few clothing purchases recently, this dress being one of them. I was really surprised on the quality and how well it has held up after numerous wash cycles. I wore this a few weeks ago when it was still pretty hot out at night which is why I paired it with my Steve Madden espadrilles and my Free People denim jacket. But since it is now officially fall, you could change out the espadrilles for thigh high boots to make the perfect fall outfit!

The Vandal + Lawrenceville

Happy Monday Babes! I wanted to share a cute little eatery that I took my mom and grandma to in Lawrenceville a few weekends back. I have been wanting to go here for years and was so happy to finally make a girls day out of it! The food was so unique and very good and everything was so aesthetically pleasing. I loved the interior and how they prepared all of  our meals. Since we went around lunch time, we did order from the brunch menu.

img_1349_facetune_14-09-2019-16-03-28img_1332img_1336

I ordered a hot tea while my mom and grandma ordered a mimosa. To eat, I ordered the french toast (absolutely amazing), my mom ordered a blt, and my grandma ordered  the smoked trout.

CaseApp Collab

I recently had the pleasure of working with CaseApp and I absolutely love the two things that I picked out. If you’re not familiar with CaseApp, they are a worldwide supplier of custom phone cases. They offer many, many different options of cases for all phones and even offer a customizable option. On top of doing phone cases, they also do laptop skins which I LOVE. I have received so many compliments on both my phone case and laptop skin and have had zero issues with dropping my phone and breaking my case ( I drop my phone at least once a day..oops). Head over to their website to pick out some of your favorites!

Rue21 VIP Event + Robinson Mall

Last week on September 11, Rue21 had their VIP Grand Opening event at Robinson Mall in Pittsburgh. I had the pleasure of attending the event and had an absolute blast doing so. I have never shopped at Rue21 before so it was cool to check out a brand new store. I was able to bring a plus one as well as giveaway two tickets on my Instagram to two of my followers. My two friends ended up winning so it was nice to all hangout for a little. I brought my mom as my plus one since she always helps take my photos and is basically the backbone to this blog. We all received swag bags with merchandise which was also super cool! If you’re around Robinson Mall, go give them a visit! Thanks again to Rue21 for including me in your special day!

Apericena Wine Bar + Pittsburgh

Hi Babes! This past weekend, my boyfriend and I went to a cute little wine bar in the South Hills. It was so much fun trying different types of wine and eating our super yummy charcuterie board! We ended up hanging there for a few hours and I loved every second of it. Totally my vibe lol! I highly suggest giving this place a visit if you’re in the South Hills. They had many different types of wines to choose from as well as different types of charcuterie boards and flat breads. The workers are also very helpful and knowledageable. They are located at:

100 Siena Suite 135, Upper St Clair, PA 15241
