Did I mention yesterday how much I love Valentine’s Day? I’ve been eyeing lots of cute little Valentine’s Day-inspired gifts lately, from trinkets for your girlfriends to a few little gifts I wouldn’t mind myself (yes, I mean you, you darling little gem locket!). Who’s your Valentine’s Day gift list?

Valentine’s Day is just a week away! I won’t be throwing a big party like I did last year, but that doesn’t mean I won’t dress the part. I’ll find any excuse to rock my ban.do heart and break out pinks and reds from my closet. But not everyone is ready for a full on pink and red color assault, so I put together two heart-inspired outfits that are little more subtle. Do you have any heart accessories picked out special for Valentine’s Day?
I think I’m finally finished with all of my Christmas shopping, but there’s always that one gift recipient that I’ll realize has slipped my mind just days before the holiday weekend. So, if you’re like me and need a few last-minute gift ideas, I’ve rounded up 20 festive finds that are on a budget — everything is under $25! The danger of putting these posts together? I’ve already done some shopping for myself: that polka-dot hat is mine!
From top left: pencils, whisk, shoe clips, initial watch, horse bottle opener, tart server, lobster earrings, twirl perfume, polka-dot hat, peace plate, magic wallet, pom-pom mittens, perpetual calendar, nail polish, volupsa candle, coasters, paddywax candle, heart sunglasses, notebooks, red lipstick.
Striped, patterned, neon, ruffled, scalloped, high-waisted — there is such a diverse range of options for shorts this summer season. I used to be more of a sundress and skirt girl, but with all of the patterns and details available, shorts are making a big entrance into my summer wardrobe; paired perfectly with some wedge heels and a silky blouse. Are you a shorts girl in the summer?
I’m super excited for Urban Outfitter’s bridal line BHLDN to launch on Monday. I’m not shopping for a wedding dress, but am attending lots of weddings this summer so I’m eyeing a few of the gorgeous dresses and accessories that go along with the bridal line. Are those white tassel shoes not the most fun ever?

This turquoise and hot-pink combination in the latest Urban Outfitter’s email campaign is YUM. It’s such a fun and modern take on Valentine’s Day, it has me wondering if I should stray from my pink and red party motif?
To do list:
Did you ever get roller skates for Christmas as a kid? I got some hand-me-down skates with pastel pink and purple laces from my cousins. They were cool for a hot second, and then all of the other neighborhood kids got roller-blades and I was embarrassed by my side-by-side wheels…. which is too bad because roller-skates are much more stylish than roller-blades, don’t you think?
Get yours here.
Brrr! My heat is turned on and blankets are out of the closet, it’s getting chilly in Boston! It feels like Fall has slipped away and I’m already in winter. Looking on the bright side of things, at least the dropping temperatures means I can get my plaid on!
I’ve come down with an awful cold. Thank you, change of seasons, for this little gift. All I want to do is snuggle up under a cozy blanket with a stack of magazines. I think a fashionable throw just might be a cure for the common cold…. any of these will do:
A few weeks back I got an email from a reader, Nikki, who needed some help pulling together a look for her law school studio dorm room. It came with the challenges of many dorm rooms — block wood furniture, inability to paint, and of course, limited budget! Here is what I pulled together for Nikki, a black, white, and dusty lilac palette:

The pieces in the “dining” nook include fabric from Ikea, a few yards to use as table cloth, some Ikea sheepskin throws to drape over the dorm chairs, and a poster above the table in a thin black frame. I think the MOST important thing you can do to de-dormify a dorm is to get a big rug to put down. Dorm tiles are so cold, and a big rug will really soften the space. I picked a black and white one from Ikea, one of my favorites!
The bedroom area needs a focal point. The challenge: can’t paint, and probably don’t want to lug a heavy bed into the space — so I a headboard wall decal, coupled with the girly touch of a ruffled duvet from Urban Outfitters is perfect. Black and white Ikea pillows give a graphic pop to the girly bed.
Finally, the accessories! Matching black lamps add symmetry on either side of the bed, and give off some much-needed lighting to study with. The ottomans I’ve included add a layer of richness to the room – and can double as nightstands or moveable extra-seating; and the curtains will add another dose of softness and color to the room.
Hope you enjoy your room Nikki!
