Tracey Reese Skirt, Equipment Silk Top, mimi&mo, sage+sparkle

If you have been following my blog for a while now, then you know that mixing prints/textures is my thing.  The more interesting details a look has, the more I love it.  While I have a great appreciation for the simply things in life, when it come to fashion, I tend to lean towards the complex. Case in point, with todays outfit. When it comes to mixing prints, it’s all about having some common thread amongst the patterns you’re mixing…. Read more »

MICHAEL Michael Kors Dress, BB Dakota Faux Leather Vest, Sage+Sparkle

Over the weekend, we came across a new mural in Astoria that I knew I had to take pictures in front of.  I wish I knew what the artist was thinking, while they created this pieces or even who the artist is.  Something about this wall reminds me of a grownup version of the Disney song “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah“, probably not at all what the artist intended but what can I say, I relate many things in my life back to musicals,… Read more »

The last couple of days have been pretty cool in the morning, almost Fall like, and naturally I’ve been loving every minute.  However, this time of year can sometimes be a challenge, when it comes to deciding what to wear or even what to buy.

Leopard Skirt, Sage+Sparkle

The weekends are flying by, labor day is fast approaching, and the sun is starting to set earlier – Fall is right around the corner! But, you wont catch this girl complaining – Fall just so happens to be my favorite season.  However, dressing during the transition, can sometimes be a challenge.  When it comes to transitioning from Summer to Fall, I have one rule that seems to help it all make sense – summer staples, in fall colors.  Now we’re… Read more »

There was a slight chill in the air this weekend that can only be exciting to someone like me, who loves autumn.  Even though I know it was probably just a tease, the breezy weather did get me excited for whats to come.  With the cooler and by cooler I mean high 70′s temps, I decided to put away my cut off shorts for the weekend and bring out an old favorite – my distressed jeans. We were all over… Read more »

Trashy Diva

When I was in New Orleans a few weeks ago, I feel in love with a local boutique, Trashy Diva! I first discovered the boutique when we were walking to breakfast our last day in the city but was sad to see that they didn’t open till noon.  Luckily I was able to talk my boyfriend into walking back after we ate so I could check out the merchandise. HOLY COW, was I in love! From the minute I walked… Read more »

Lace Top, J Crew Leather Shorts, Old Navy Bucket Bag, Sage+Sparkle

One of my favorite looks this summer is a sheer lace top paired with a print or lace bra – even better when you throw in leather shorts.   I have been looking for the perfect lace top pretty much since the sun came out to play for summer and I finally found it at TJ Maxx. I have been waiting to wear this piece for a few weeks now, but I didn’t have the right undergarments. With a lace… Read more »

Sequin Heart Tank Top, Sweet Pea & Tulip, Madewell Shorts, Sam Edelman Woven Flats, Old Navy Bucket Bag, Sage+Sparkle

Rain in New Orleans is no joke! Luckily we were able to take these pictures about 15 min’s before it started raining, but once it did, the entire french quarter was knee-deep in water.  No joke! I kid you not.  We had to walk back to our hotel, in water that, at times, was up to our knees!   We saw cars quickly being covered by water, manholes flying in the air from the water pressure, and roaches scurrying up… Read more »
