the style hive: June 2016

currently craving

Tuesday, June 28, 2016




Hi all! Here's my current virtual wishlist and as you can see, it's totally embracing the athleisure trend. Although I still don't think I'll ever be one to wear sweatpants out in public, I can't help but love the sleek, easy feel to throwing on a pair of Nike's and a cool jacket. I think the fact that I've bought three bomber jackets in the last two weeks says something...(don't worry, one is getting returned and one is getting DIY'ed!)

Hope your week is going well! Happy Thursday!

the cloisters

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Top: Ted Baker / Skirt: Topshop / Flats: Topshop (similar, similar) /
Earrings: LOFT (love these, these, and these) / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (or the full price one

The Cloisters are definitely one of my favorite places on Earth. I've only been there a handful of times (I think this last one was the third) but I can spend hours there, walking in the gardens and taking in the medieval tapestries, jewelry, and artwork. The art history nerd in me isn't the biggest medieval fan (I'd rather wander around the Whitney or the Brooklyn Museum), there's just something about the Romanesque and Gothic walls, the high ceilings, and the sturdy stone that makes me feel at peace. So of course I wore the softest, gentlest outfit I could.

I'm wishing I were back here right now! These past few weeks have been crazy with school and work, and I don't see it getting lighter any time soon. Luckily though I'm starting to plan for my vacation in August - I haven't nailed down all the details yet, but I'm pretty sure Iceland is going to be involved! I can't wait. Until then, thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your weekend!

treat yo self

Sunday, June 12, 2016

Jacket: Topshop / Top: Target / Jeans: TopshopShoes: Zara /
Bag: 3.1 Philip Lim / Shades: Karen Walker / Earrings: LOFT (love these, or these)

I treated myself with this outfit today because I'm literally wearing pajamas. And I'm not talking about the blazer, which is just the coziest thing that I practically live in it. Nope, that Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle slogan-bearing t-shirt is actually part of a pajama set from Target. Parks and Rec reference, an excuse to wear PJs, and only 12 bucks? Yeah, I'll treat myself.

Happy Sunday, friends! Thanks for stopping by.

one for the road

Saturday, June 4, 2016

Jacket: Custom made by bff / Top: Madewell / Jeans: Topshop /
Shoes: Topshop / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (or the Target version)

We're finally getting into warm weather! So my dad and I decided to take advantage of it and go for a walk to grab some lunch. Of course, I decided to take advantage of that scenario to turn it into taking outfit photos. I can't believe it took me this long to take photos against this wall art - I literally live around the corner from it and I've passed by it my whole life! It made a great backdrop for my attempt at a classic Americana look - with a British twist thanks to some Arctic Monkeys lyrics. Huge props to my bff for customizing it for me. Needless to say I felt pretty rad *sunglasses emoji*

Hope you all are having a good weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
