Who's Counting?

{As seen on a J Crew buyer Kim}

I came across these beautiful, stackable, 14k gold rings from Lulu Frost's CODE line of jewelry. They are available online and at select J Crew stores. Inspired by the hotel room numbers of the New York Plaza Hotel, many women wear these delicate little statements to show their lucky number, birthdate or anniversary.


With a lingering summer cold, a final test to prepare for, an unfinished case brief calling my name and an empty suitcase waiting to be packed, I would bet this Sunday is going to be anything but restful. To turn this shabby Sunday afternoon into my own little pocket of sunshine, I have armed myself with the essentials to beat this case of the Sunday blues.

A peak inside...

There are a million reasons why I love the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. This year I was lucky enough to indulge in a few great pieces for fall. Here is one of my latest purchases at the sale that I've had my eye on for a while. I've been in need of a proper wallet for quite some time, and the anniversary sale presented the perfect opportunity to invest. This luxe Marc Jacobs wallet screams classic to me, yet it has a few youthful touches that I adore, like the gold hardware and small script details. What I love about my particular choice is that it doubles as a clutch. The leather is so soft and flexible that I can fit my phone in it as well...perfect for the casual evening out. It's elegant yet understated- everything a wallet should be. If you too are in need of un nouveau portefeuille,hurry, the sale only lasts until Monday!

I also love that it goes nicely with my creme MJ bag....

{5 picks}

It's hard to believe that summer is almost seems like just last week I was transitioning into my new apartment and job. I certainly intend to savor what's left of the beautiful weather, sunshine and leisure. Here are 5 of my current favorite picks. Believe me, with many mid-summer sales, savory summer finds and classy & chic accessories, this was a hard pick.

5. Miniature cupcakes, from Cupcake of course!

4. My current 5 favorite Essie nail polishes {Licorice, Material Girl, California Coral, Tart Deco & French Affair}

3. My lovely new Kate Spade New York earrings

2. Tory Burch signature orange balloons (as posted on the Tory fan page)

Face- Stockholm

I love this new simple color ironically called "never nude". It will help me make the perfect transition from summer to fall. For a sparkle twist, (and I always love a little sparkle) paint your ring finger full of a silver sparkle polish over the "never nude".

Here's the final look:

I just love the way the color looks when I'm typing...
