Right now I am fascinated with brights. Bright lips, bright clothes, bright bags and bright shoes. Color just really seems to be grasping my attention these days and I have been on the lookout for more colorful stuff.


I recently stored my winter clothes in exchange for my summer clothes and I realized my closet is in need of color. I want to see more jungle green, cobalt, blue violet, and fiery red orange hues to brighten my outfits.

 I really like the purple and red combinations. 

I love the BF Rebecca Minkoff bag. Not only is the color alluring, but this mini satchel is part of her Japan Relief collection. With the purchase of one of these handbags $100 from the sale will be donated for those in need of food, care, or shelter. 

Bright lips are also fun. Don't be afraid of color, illuminate your face with these exciting lip tints. Maybelline's Fuschia Fever (Jl's favorite) and Mac's Neon Orange are two lively colors to try.

I took these photos a while ago but I hadn't found any time to post them. It is the last and most hectic month before school ends so you can imagine my levels of stress at their highest right now. But this should all pay off in the summer because I am going to China! I will be spending an adventurous month traveling through China and southern Asia with Jl. So there is goodness to come, but for now I must succeed in my scholarly duties. 

Some of the items worn with this outfit brought back beautiful memories of when I was in Europe. That is why I always love to get at least one significant item I know I will always cherish from my travels. 

Polka dot blouse thrifted from The Label Exchange worn with mom's vintage belt.  Oh and I am also loving white nail polish right now. I can't get enough of it. 

I love this leather crossbody. I found it at a leather bag stand at a market in Madrid. I remember there were so many novelties at that market. Books, jewelry, bags, clothes, name it.

I bought these booties in "downtown" Paris. Very comfortable for those long walks around the city. 

I also found this ring at that market in Madrid. It really is a lovely city.
