Chic Summer Skirt + FF Link-Up!

Sweater: Zara (old, similar here), Skirt: by the way., Bag: Saint Laurent, Sandals: Sam Edelman
Happy Wednesday loves! Hope you're having a great week so far. Mine has been busy as usual but we're almost halfway done!

When I saw this skirt I thought that it was a really unique twist on a summer skirt! It can be worn casually because of the fraying or you can dress it up more like I did here. I'm actually not the biggest skirt person in general but this one is so comfortable and versatile! I think it would also look super chic paired with a black blazer and heels for an event.

Brand Spotlight: AUrate New York

Happy Monday friends--hope you had a great weekend! When AUrate New York reached out to me and asked if I would like to select an item from their beautiful range of jewelry, I was beyond excited! As I looked over their site and their GORGEOUS collections I immediately fell in love with so many of their exquisite pieces.

AUrate sells beautiful fine jewelry without concessions - which means real gold, at a fair price, ethically sourced, made in NYC. They have great prices especially for 14k gold, high-quality pieces and you can tell that the craftsmanship is just above and beyond! Aside from being ethically sourced, AUrate gives back by donating books to students and schools across NYC which I think is just amazing! Who doesn't love a brand that gives back?

If y'all have been following me for a while, you know I absolutely love dainty, classic jewelry. I go through stages of liking big statement pieces but the last year or so I have only consistently added timeless, quality jewelry to my collection. AUrate's items are all timeless while still being on trend!

I selected these classic 14k white gold huggies because I am just obsessed with the look of stacking little hoops. I have 3 piercings on each ear so these were a perfect addition and pair so well with all of the other earrings in my collection!

My ears do get somewhat irritated by some jewelry and I have left these earrings in overnight several times and it's like I'm not even wearing anything! That is one other way that I can tell the quality is just amazing on these little hoops.

I already have my eye on a few other pieces from their collection like these larger hoops that are just too cool and I also love the necklace versionThis necklace is also VERY me and would go with any outfit! Also for any future brides, they have a separate bridal collection with gorgeous and unique bands. I love how dainty and minimalist they are!

If y'all are in the market for some beautiful jewelry pieces that you would like to add to your collection or that you might want to gift to a friend or family member, I highly recommend you check out AUrate New York!

July Favorites! [Fashion, Beauty, Books + more]

Tote (pre-loved here), Necklace, Jacket, Book, Leggings, Caviar Stick, Booties
Happy Friday loves! Hope y'all had a great week and have some fun weekend plans ahead. Tonight we have reservations at a restaurant called Lolita which is in the Seaport part of the city! It has been recommended by several friends so I'm VERY excited to go. Tomorrow, I believe the day is going to be kind of crummy so I'm thinking maybe dinner and a movie? Sunday, we don't know our exact plans yet but it will definitely brunch and mimosas!

I thought today it would be fun to share with y'all some items I have been LOVING recently especially through the month of July!

My first favorite is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull--this was a dream bag purchase and I finally bought it pre-loved from Fashionphile back in June! I ended up selling my Chloe Marcie and purchasing the LV Neverfull as my everyday bag. The Chloe Marcie is a great bag but the leather is VERY heavy and the shape just isn't practical. I absolutely love how durable the Neverfull is and how much you can toss in it. I am trying to keep mine tidy and organized though...for now!

This Astrid & Miyu necklace is GORGEOUS and it's the perfect dainty piece that I have been wearing every single day. This has quickly become a new favorite jewelry brand for me! I just ordered a pair of little huggie hoops from them a couple of weeks ago.

Though this jacket isn't getting a ton of wear now, it's one of those items where as soon as you take it out of the box, you fall instantly in love. The quality is amazing and I love the neutral color I have already worn it once out to eat because I'm always cold so you can get some wear out of it now with a pair of shorts!

I'm not going to get into this book too much because I plan to do a book review soon on the blog but omg...can't contain how much I LOVED it. If you are looking for ANY book to read now, get this one!

I have been working out a lot since the move but aside from that I have just been living in the Luluemon Align Leggings. They are just as comfortable and flattering as everyone says and totally worth the price!

I have loved Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks for years but I used to only use the shimmery shades. Just recently I discovered two matte shades "Au Naturale" and "Caramel" and they are perfect for an easy, every day eye look! 

These booties were my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchase! You can wear them now and I can guarantee I will be wearing them plenty throughout fall and winter too. They go with everything!

Have a great weekend loves!
