Spring-Ready Sunnies

One accessory that made a major statement on the spring runways was sunglasses. From oversize, to cat-eye, to circular, your basic aviators just aren’t going to cut it anymore. The bigger the statement you can make with your sunnies this spring, the better. See below for some of the sunnies I am craving come this spring. The best part about all these sunglasses is that they are all SUPER affordable! :)

Also, I can’t wait to share with you all a recap from my weekend at Blogshop in Minneapolis! It was such an inspiring and motivating weekend for me to make my blog the absolute BEST it can be. Plus, it was so fun to meet some many creative ladies :)
Later this week, I will be sharing some of the changes I will be making to my blog and some of the things you can expect to see coming up in the future. Get excited! I sure am.
Happy Wednesday!

Brand I Love: Markus Lupfer

Markus Lupfer’s designs have recently caught my attention, and for great reason. The clever and unique designs of his products have attracted quite a cult following in the fashion industry as of late, particularly his sequin-embroidered knits and pullovers. A girl can never have enough sequins, and I’m so glad that Markus Lupfer has finally recognized that, incorporating sequins into nearly all of his designs.
Originally from London, his designs have been seen worn by all kinds of celebrities, from Beyonce and Rihanna, to fashion moguls such as Blake Lively, Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung.
One of these pullovers would be a perfect investment for spring, paired with a chambray shirt underneath, white denim and some wedges, or simply worn by itself with a pair of jeans.
Personally, I would love to have the sparkly lips t-shirt. Call me crazy, but I find that to be a very versatile piece that I could pair with all kinds of different outfits!

On a different note, I am heading to Minneapolis this weekend to participate in Blogshop. I’m very excited to learn how to make my blog be even better! Follow me on Twitter @sheworembellish for updates throughout the weekend!
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend!

Hump Day Hearsay #11: Recapping NYFW

1ca8a76b7ea32dc155258d25c484f00c {Image}

Today’s picture was chosen due to the fact that I am still recovering from the hard fall I took when I instantly fell in love with Kate Spade’s Fall 2013 RTW line at New York Fashion Week. From the polka dots, to the pink, to the ribbon, to the leather, to the oversized clutches….I am OBSESSED.
Ah, fashion week…my favorite bi-annual time of year, where Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and now, Vine, are being flooded with the endless array of street style shots and upcoming lines from the most sought-after designer fashion shows featuring the faces of models like Karlie Kloss and the fashion’s industry latest it-girl, Cara Delevingne.
Anywho, enough of me. Now for today’s reads….enjoy!

With the Oscar’s coming up this Sunday, Lauren Conrad just posted the cutest Oscars viewing party idea…PJs and pearls!? Yes, please!

Until money starts to grow on trees, everyone could use a few lessons on budgeting, and I thought this post was an exceptional on how to budget in 2013.

As stated in one of my previous posts, I love statement jewelry, so this roundup of statement stud earrings made my heart flutter just a little bit.

Even though I have to put on about 13 layers before I step outside these days, I simply can’t help but start to flip through the upcoming spring 2013 swimwear lookbooks. It came as quite a pleasant surprise when I discovered that Nasty Gal will be debuting swimwear this spring. See the lookbook here.

Oh, lucite, how I love you.

It seems that online shopping is becoming all about personalized monthly subscriptions these days, doesn’t it? Check out this new website for wow-factor workout gear.

I am absolutely dying to redo my workspace and I have been researching the best and easiest way to make my work space chic AND organized. I was absolutely THRILLED when I stumbled across this post.

Spring Pastels

spring-pastelss {1/2/3}

Even though it couldn’t look further from spring outside where I live, spring fashion is in full swing. One trend that seems to be timeless in spring fashion (and happens to be one of my favorites) is lovely shades of pastels. Whether it’s a lovely lavender, a powder blue, a lime green, or a light pink, be sure to get one, if not all, of these colors into your wardrobe for spring.
Below are some of the pastel pieces that I am craving this spring. In particular, I am going to do everything I can to get my hands on that ADORABLE one piece with the waist ruffle (look for an upcoming post about one-pieces). I am also swooning over that peplum top from Modcloth and those super chic two-tone heels from Shoedazzle.
