DIY Dip Dyed Socks

DIY Dip Dyed SocksNow that fall weather is officially here in New York, it’s time to cozy up! My instinct is to always shop for darker colors in the winter because that’s typically what’s easily available, but not this year!

Colorful Statement Earrings

Colorful Statement Earrings for SpringBecause of the Nor’easter we had last week, and the fact that we gained an extra hour of daylight, all I can think about is spring.  The sunshine, fresh flowers, and of course, new colorful clothes and accessories! What I wouldn’t give to put my garbage bag of a winter coat away for good. The weather might not be warm enough for that just yet, so I decided to start small and focus on colorful statement earrings. Because even if there’s another snow storm tomorrow, your ears will already be in spring. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Beaded Drop Hoops

2. Metallic Foil Earrings

3. Vibrant Life Linear Earrings

4. Pink and Gold Horseshoe**

5. The Bead Goes On

6. Lucite Earrings

7. Lemon Drop Earrings

8. Pink Pom Poms

**Huge congrats to my dear friend Sarah Hearts on launching her first earring line this week! Everything is so cute and under $20!

With the temperatures getting into the 90s this week in Philadelphia, and Memorial Day right around the corner, it’s time to get your summer shoe wardrobe figured out! Clogs are such a fun and classic go-to because not only can you can dress them up or down, but they also go with just about anything. And of course the best part, they are far more comfortable than regular heels. It’s summer after all, you’re going to need to be comfortable while you drink all that rosé!

I have my eye on #2 and #5 (which do you prefer?!), but you really can’t go wrong with any of these clogs!
