The other day I was flipping through a magazine and some bold black-and-white pieces caught my eye. Turns out it was a Target ad! I spent some time browsing on their website and they have so many chic black-and-white pieces in all sorts of patterns- stripes, polka dots, you name it. If you’re looking to incorporate some black and white into your wardrobe, look no further. And the best part? All of these items are under $35!

 Tell me: How do you feel about the black-and-white trend? Which of these is your favorite?

Weekly Wishes 02.

Looking at last week’s wishes, I did not do so great. Gosh, it’s only the first week and I’m already slacking! The only thing I crossed off the list was making a hair appointment. I did end up getting my hair done over the weekend and that was definitely a good thing. Now on to this week’s wishes!

This week I want to…

– take care of the things from last week’s list, most importantly buying my plane ticket. I didn’t practice at all with my camera last week (I was so wrapped up in working on the redesign), but I know that this weekend I will definitely have the opportunity to take some pictures (more on that a little further below). Sadly, as far as the apple picking goes, I’m not sure it will happen soon since I have plans this weekend and then the week after that I’m going on a little trip. I haven’t given up hope yet though!

– put together my Halloween costume. I’m planning on mostly using stuff I own, but there are a few little accessories I’d like to pick up if I can find them. I think they’ll really make the outfit.

– get ready for our Halloween party this weekend! My roomie and I threw a party last year and we’ve decided to do it again this year. I’ve been pinning some spooky decorations and treats on Pinterest and I know I’m going to have fun turning some of these ideas into reality.

Let me know your goals for the week in the comments below!

Change is Good

Change-is-Good

So, things are looking a little different around here, no? I’ve been itching to do a blog redesign for a while and over the past week I finally sat down and made it happen. When I set my mind to something, I kind of get obsessive about it, which meant that this redesign was pretty much the only thing I accomplished this past week! I’m happy with the hours I put in though- I wanted something very clean and a little more streamlined.

I’m excited for this change- I always feel refreshed and reinspired after I do a blog redesign. I’d love to know what you think in the comments below and do let me know if you run into any technical problems!

Navy + Black

Whoever said that you can’t combine navy and black? I happen to really like these two colors together, as you can tell from this outfit. I’m pretty pleased with this leather-sleeved jacket that I picked up recently. I have a light pink jacket in a similar style that I wear all the time, but I love this darker version also- it seems perfect for fall.

I feel like this jacket leans toward edgy, so I decided to balance it out a bit with some classic stripes and a floaty dress underneath. Also, can you believe that it was under 30 bucks? It’s definitely a steal if you’re on the hunt for new fall outerwear.
