A Little Leopard

Hello again! After a busy busy week, I’m back! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday with family and friends. I have to admit, a few years ago I would have never worn leopard print. For the longest time it reminded me of Cruella Deville from 101 Dalmatians and that totally ruined it for me.  This is an animal print that can be easily overdone, less of this is definitely more! That’s why I really love leopard accents, like shoes and accessories. After purchasing a pair of Tory Burch Reva leopard flats and a clutch from TJMaxx, I can’t stay away from it! I have also eyed this Clare Vivier clutch for quite some time!

L&G Holiday Gift Guide IV: What I’m Wanting

For L&G’s Gift Guide IV, I decided to post a few goodies that are on my wishlist this year!

giftguide4

1. Barbour Beadnell Jacket – I’m a sucker for this classic Barbour. They fit so well and go with just about everything!

2. neuLASH – I usually don’t wear a lot of makeup, but one of my favorite things to do is experiment with my eyelashes, whether that’s playing with different mascaras or eyelash curlers. I’ve never tried lash enhancers of any kind, but I’ve heard such good things about this product that it seems like it’s well worth it. Similar to Latisse but without any of the nasty side effects.

3. GiGi New York iPhone 5 Case – I love the vibrant color of this phone case next to the gold monogram! I usually don’t own hard shell cases because I’m pretty clumsy with my phone, but this one is too pretty to resist!

4. Tory Burch Glazed Leather Clutch – Oh boy, I have been eyeing this clutch for so long! It can be dressed up or down. Perfect with any outfit no doubt!

5. Loren Hope Clara Earrings – Another I’ve obsessed over for some time now. Much dressier than the studs I usually wear, but I’d find any excuse to wear these!

6. Michael Kors Runway Watch – Black and gold is a favorite combination of mine. Michael Kors does it right! I also have small wrists and this watch has a small face, so it’s perfect!

7. Chloé Eau de Parfum – Such a great scent. I’m usually a Chanel girl but I have to smell this every time I’m in the perfume section of Sephora.

8. Baublebar Tortoise Constellation Bib – Do I have a real reason to want a necklace this glam? Nope. Do I care? Absolutely not.

9. Chanel Colour Lipshine in Rouge Coco – I cannot possibly say enough good things about this lipshine. It’s the perfect combination of lipstick and lip gloss: the long-lasting wear we all want without the stickiness. I was head over heels with this little piece of heaven until I misplaced it two days after purchase. Needless to say I’d love to have it again!

10. Evelyn Henson and Design Darling Prints – My absolute favorites from both. How adorable would these look hanging above a desk? They would definitely give me a little extra motivation during late-night study sessions!

11. Kate Spade New York Skinny Mini Bow Ring – It was love at first sight when I spotted this on The College Prepster! Simple and delicate, my favorite type of jewelry!

12. Frye Melissa Boot – One of the best Frye designs in my opinion. SO incredibly versatile. This is the perfect winter boot!

It’s the perfect size to carry all the necessities: iPhone, makeup, sunglasses, you can even fit an iPad or a book inside! The quality is amazing and the gold monogram adds such a great feminine touch. There are so many goodies on the website like this, this, and this that I must add to my collection!

Finding The Perfect Barn Coat

It’s amazing how barn coats have popularized so much over the past few years.  It all started at an undergrad football game about two years ago when I noticed a few guys sporting the classic olive Beadnell jacket by Barbour.  Maybe it was one of those circumstances when you notice something for the first time, and then that object appears everywhere… because that’s exactly what happened! After that day, it seemed like tons of guys wore them around campus. It didn’t take long for girls to catch on either, Barbour jackets were everywhere. After doing a little research on the brand, I realized that these coats are pretty amazing. They’re weatherproof, warm, and last a lifetime if taken care of properly. When you think of barn coats, Barbour is probably the company that comes to mind first… but there are other brands out there that offer great barn coats too!

Barbour Classic Olive Beadnell // Cabela’s Canvas Barn Coat

J.Crew Quilted Jacket // Barbour Liddesdale Jacket

L.L. Bean Adirondack Barn Coat // Filson Tin Cloth Barn Coat

I have the olive J.Crew Quilted Jacket, and I love it paired with Fryes, cords and a comfy flannel!

A barn coat is definitely an investment piece that’s worth the price!
