Bring on Spring

Sweater: Gap (old, love this style here) | Shorts: One Teaspoon | Sneakers: Pour La Victoire | Jewelry: gorjana

There's something about balancing out short shorts with a big chunky sweater - it's like the mullet of changing seasons. Spring on top, Summer on the bottom. Throw in some fierce leopard sneakers and you're ready to hit the streets. 

So I scored these One Teaspoon beauties at their warehouse sale when I was in Oz a couple of weeks ago and I am kicking myself for not buying more! Seriously, the best purchase I've made for Summer thus far - they're so comfortable and too easy to dress up. I've been caught throwing a blazer and some delicate heels over them for a more dressy look. 

How do you dress up casual pieces in your wardrobe?

Happy Friday, love muffins!

Breakup Black

Dress: Forever21 | Booties: Rag & Bone | Jacket: Zara | Jewelry: gorjana

I just wanted to take a second to apologize for my huge lack in posting lately. I've always tried to walk a fine line in how much of my personal life I share on Trinkets & Trends but I've come to realize that sometimes it's ok to open up a little more than I might be comfortable with here because you might be going through the same or similar events. 

Sometimes, life happens and it completely catches you off guard. People come in and out of your life for a reason - as they say, they're either a blessing or a lesson. Well, I've been dealing with losing someone that played a huge part in my life and starting over has proven a bit more difficult than I could imagine. While I understand that everything happens for a reason and that the person that you thought was going to be in your life forever isn't always that person for you, it never makes it easier to deal with. 

With that said, there are going to be a few changes here at T&T - my photographer being one of them :) Bare with me as I lean on my friends and family to help me with my photos & my blog. I promise I will not give this project up - it has introduced me to some amazing people that I am forever grateful for.  

So, here's to everyone's next chapter! Cheers

Throwback Denim

Jacket: Zara | Tank: Forever21 | Jeans:  7 For All Mankind (old, similar styles here, here & here) | Heels: Cole Haan | Jewelry: gorjana

First off - Happy Friday! I've been so busy with work and play that I feel like this week just totally flew by. Anyone else?

I wanted to apologize for my lack of posting - between work, moving and a broken camera, getting posts done has proven to be much more difficult than expected. My Nikon has totally stopped focusing on anything so I'm worried I might have to buy a new one :( and I've been left alternating between my parent's camera or my iPhone for photos. Hopefully I can get that all organized this weekend and next week in between moving and work - oh, life!

So as you can see, these jeans are like 3 sizes too big for me bit I'm totally loving it! They're my new Skinny Boyfriends jeans - love pairing them with a delicate heel and a tighter top to help balance off their baggy, slouchy goodness! Are you bringing any old denim back into your wardrobe shuffle?

Cheers to the weekend!

Casual Friday

Shirt: Gap (old, similar style here) | Shorts: Forever21 | Sneakers: Converse | Bag: Deux Lux | Jewelry: gorjana

Happy Friday, love bugs!

Since it's the end of the week, I decided to keep it pretty casual - shorts & sneakers were on my mind. While I love the look with my Converse, I really wanted to reach for my rag & bone booties but couldn't find them - oh the gems of moving. 

Hope you guys had an awesome week and don't forget to wear your green this weekend! 

Happy St. Patty's Day!

White Eyelet & Denim

Jacket: Forever21 (similar style here) | Romper: Forever21 | Wedges: Pour La Victoire | Jewelry: gorjana

Spring is in the air and I'm totally ok with that. Longer days, less layers & delicate pieces are right up my alley right now. To top it all off, I'm digging up all my espadrilles, wedges and Summer sandals that have been hiding away these colder months so I feel like I've discovered a whole new closet & my feet are loving it :)

Happy Hump Day, love bugs!

Top: Brandy Melville (love this similar style here) | Cutoffs: One Teaspoon | Sandals: Elizabeth & James (old - love these nude sandals here) | Necklace: Forever21 | Bag: Deux Lux

Happy Monday, love muffins!

So sorry for my lack of posting lately - traveling, catching up on work and life just got in the way. But, I'm back in action now...hopefully!

Just a quick one this morning - already missing the Sydney sun & beaches!

Dress: One Teaspoon | Shoes: Cole Haan | Necklace: gorjana

I call this dress my 'Business in the Front, Party in the Back ' look - a mullet dress if you will! 

I found this beaut at the One Teaspoon Warehouse Sale last week and I'm already foreseeing me getting my money's worth outta this one. I've never had a midi dress like this but love that the back spices it up a bit. 

I can't wait to make it a little less Stepford Wife and a little more edgy with the right accessories as soon as I get home and have full control over my closet again!

Hope you're having an awesome Monday (Tuesday - depending on where you are :) ) !

Welcome to Wonderland (PR)

So excited to share this post with you guys! I know it's kind of small - I tried and tried to make it bigger but Photoshop is not liking me today! :)

Anyways, I was so excited to have the opportunity to visit Wonderland PR in Sydney last week. They rep some of my new fave Aussie brands like Toi et Moi, Elliatt, Mad Love & Valley Eyewear - just to name a few. I fell in love all over again with Autumn/Winter (Australia is a season ahead of us so they're enjoying their Summer heat and gearing up for colder weather) - mustards & warm oranges, cobalt blues & leather details, moto inspired booties & so much more. 

You guys have to check out Wonderland PR's site & all the amazing brands they rep - you can even find a few of them in the States on Shopbop & know where I'll be shopping for some of these bad boys!

Hope you guys are enjoying yourselves // peace & love!

Windy City

Bodysuit: American Apparel (obsessed with this one) | Shorts: Forever21 (old) | Heels: Cole Haan | Jewelry: gorjana | Bag: Cole Haan

Welp, those nice days have come & gone - the rain is here & it looks like it's going to stay awhile!

Before the storm hit, I was totally loving the heat and even took myself to the beach one, can you tell I got a wee bit too much sun. My. Legs. Are. Fried. (Sorry, Mom).

Off to Tasmania tomorrow which I'm so stoked about - everyone keeps telling us it's a gorgeous place with cool vintage shops & amazing scenery! 

Happy almost TGIF everyone!
