Sequins and Sparkles makes the best pieces and are guaranteed to add a little sparkle to your day. I've looked into purchasing this scarf too many times and I think I'm finally about to cave. However, I did see a look-a-like that stopped me in my tracks at Macy's for a lesser price. BONUS.

Must Re-Create

Lately I've been obsessing over this outfit. Typically Miley is a little too boho and/or skimpy for my taste but I love the different textures and combinations she so causally pulled together. Re-creating this look is fairly simple. Here's a list of things you need...

4. White T-shirt

*Optional- a beautiful Aussie boy by your side. Just saying.

Daily Dose

I read Refinery29 each morning and am often inspired by their articles. They offer a lot of tips that you can easily implement into your style. One look at this photo and I immediately took off my chipped blue polish and copied the nails above. This was my first time using this combination and it made two polishes that were gathering dust feel like new.

Check out the full article here.

I 'Heart' Ronson

I had knowledge of Charlotte Ronson's I 'Heart' Ronson line at JCPenney, but never bothered to take a look... That was a major mistake. A friend of mine purchased a crazy cute top and guess where she bought it? Yep, JCPenney. Who knew? I highly recommend checking out the rest of the line. Here are my favorite picks...

Blow Ya Mind

To Buy: Nicki Minaj's Metallic 4 life.
This color is one of the best I've seen from OPI in a looong time. Leave it to Nicki to pull them out of a color rut.

Study sessions would be much more appealing if they looked this glamorous, no?

This Time Last Year

This time last year I was preparing for a semester in London. This photo, via The Satorialist, only makes me miss it that much more. *Swoon.

Sweat in Style

I popped into Old Navy today to pick up a vest that had been disappointingly out of stock for quite some time (THE vest- great for layering in the fall ). My trips to ON are extremely rare, so I was surprised to see their selection of adorable, affordable workout wear. I need to scrounge up motivation to workout wherever I can and a fun outfit never hurts.

This top makes me want to head over to a yoga class. Love the subtle floral design and calming colors.

I almost always workout in knee length or capri pants. The last thing I need to worry about while I'm working out is someone seeing up my shorts. A ruched waist band adds a feminine touch and uniqueness to an otherwise plain black pair of pants. BONUS: these are compression pants. I don't hate that one b-i-t.

How great is this? A TUNIC length pullover. P E R F E C T item to throw on on your way to the gym on a breezy day...or hey, maybe just to grab a coffee.

I have always had a soft spot for this color. It's flattering on just about every skin tone no matter what time of year. It also doesn't hurt that it has a tie to define that waist that you work so hard for!

Still lacking motivation to get out the door? That's okay, try an at home workout DVD. I bought Bethenny Frankel's Body by Bethenny on a recent Target run. I have a minor obsession with her and she has one rockin bod. It's a 55 minute workout that will help you "unleash your inner skinnygirl".

I know I'm feeling motivated. Are you?

Pom Poms and Prints

The end of summer means daydreaming about back to school clothes, school supplies and how to decorate and organize my room for the upcoming school year. For decor inspiration I turn to Etsy. Those of you who are familiar know that you can find some of the neatest things, but will have to hunt a little to find them. Here are a few tips for navigating your way:
1. Create an account- that way you can mark your items as "favorites" and revisit them later.
2. When you find an item you like, check out the seller's personal favorite items. If they're making something you like, they probably have similar taste.
3. Seller doesn't have any favorites listed? Check our their circles instead.

A few of my favorite shops:

A few items you might just find in my room this year

Pom pom poofs above my bed for a burst of color...

Adorable thank you notes

Polka dot magnets for the fridge

These sticks will go perfectly with a new jewel tone vase I purchased at TJ Maxx

Lastly, an inspirational reminder to do what you love every day.

Good luck!

A Fall Must

J Crew recently debuted their Fall 2011 collection. After scouring their new arrivals twice (...okay three times) I had to wipe the drool off of my chin. Brightly colored capris and cords, color blocking, jewel tones and lipstick from neutral to bold are all things to focus on this fall season. The last trend to keep in mind is LEOPARD. If you know me at all you know this is a personal favorite of mine and my obsession is only growing. Below are a few items to get you started on your leopard print search. Do yourself a favor, pick an item out and sport it like crazy.

{Target also has a leopard belt in stores, but I was unable to find it online)

{A less expensive option found here}

If you're feeling especially bold, pair your leopard print with another pattern, like a stripe. Photo from Atlantic-Pacific

Have a wonderful weekend!
