FURLA LEATHER HANDBAG

Italy is famous for its leather. I’m famous for finding any reason to buy a new handbag. So now, here we are. One of my favorite parts about this two-toned Furla tote is its sides can fold inward, transforming it into a smaller day bag. That, plus I usually gravitate toward black bags when I’m looking to invest, so […]

LEATHER AND LACE

My style is undoubtedly feminine, so much so that sometimes I even have a hard time adding edge to my outfits — at least I did until I purchased this burgundy faux-leather jacket. Mixing leather and lace is the perfect way to add spunk to my frilly dresses, and this surprisingly versatile jacket has already become one of […]

SOLID NEUTRALS

It’s my first week studying at Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence and so far I’m really happy with my classes and am excited to learn more about Italian fashion and culture. My history of Italian fashion professor described Italian style as “artless elegance,” and I love that concept of dressing chic without looking like you tried. Pairing  neutrals is a […]

WALK THE WALK

Now that I am living in Italy, I’m trying my hardest to talk the talk and walk the walk — easier said than done since I didn’t know any Italian (besides “Ciao!”) before moving here. Kate and I have been brushing up on some key phrases from our Italian pocketbook and have decided to master at least one each day. “Non […]

ITALIAN APARTMENT

My three roommates and I are settling in to our cozy two-bedroom apartment. The decor is cheery, the natural sunlight is abundant and the location is perfect — minutes from the Duomo, around the corner from a local market and within walking distance of the best gelato in Italy. I love that this place already feels like […]

OFF TO ITALY

Right now, I am on a plane heading to Italy for a semester abroad. I am so excited for what these next few months will bring, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. You can keep up with my European adventures here, on The Stylish Print, or on Instagram and Twitter with […]

KEEPING IT CLASSIC

My style is very feminine and for me, keeping it classic is key. A black and white striped shirt is always one of my go-tos (no matter the occasion), and so is pretty gold jewelry. Speaking of which, don’t forget the Armed & Readi Instagram sale launches at noon and will go one until 2:00 p.m. EST. […]

ARMED AND READI

Nothing pulls together an outfit and makes me feel armed and readi  for the day like accessories do. My friend Mary Kate, of Trend Takeover, introduced me to Armed & Readi last year and its irresistible jewelry collections had me at “hello.” Today, I’m excited to give you this sneak peek of an upcoming Armed & Readi Instagram […]

PACKING FOR EUROPE

Click on the “+” to shop the product. It’s coming down to the wire, and I can’t believe I’m actually packing for Europe — an entire semester in Italy. Fitting a semester’s worth of clothes into two bags is proving to be a challenge (as I expected), and I find myself questioning what items should make the […]

NAVY & NEW

Something navy: I love T-shirt dresses — plain and simple. They’re comfy, trendy and easy to style many different ways (I swear I wear this navy one once a week). While I admit I’m often drawn to A-line silhouettes that define my waist, I also stock up on loose-fitting dresses that drape over my curves in a […]

DIVINE CAROLINE

Today is the last day of my internship with Divine Caroline. This summer has been amazing — I’ve written stories, befriended coworkers and learned a lot on the job — I can’t believe it’s already over. Seriously, where has the time gone? Now, I’m busy getting ready for my next adventure…  only 11 days until I take off […]

GOLD DAINTY JEWELRY

Click on the “+” to shop the product. Now don’t get me wrong, I love an amazing statement necklace, but lately I have been living in my dainty jewelry. I love how classic and elegant a simple gold chain looks, and I can’t get enough of having my fingers covered in delicate rings. These pieces are ones I’m eyeing […]

DRESSING UP CHAMBRAY

I love chambray shirts just as much as the next gal, but I especially love how versatile they are. It’s easy to dress one up with a printed pencil skirt and heels, or you can dress one down by layering it over a graphic tee. You really can have the best of both worlds with a denim-like shirt. Target […]

ALMOST ALL WHITE

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am obsessed with my leopard sneakers — seems like they’ve been in every other photo I’ve posted recently. Originally, I fell in love with a similar pair by Steve Madden, but with my upcoming semester in Italy, let’s face it, I don’t have the budget for $80 shoes. I found […]
