Custom in Capri: My Experience with Custom Capri Sandals

During my time on the Amalfi Coast on spring break, I had a chance to spend the day on the wonderful island of Capri. Something that Capri is world famous for are their custom made leather sandals, made popular after Jackie Kennedy Onassis picked up a pair during her trip there.

When I got to the top of Capri (AnaCapri) I found a beautiful sandal store and was greeted by a wonderful older woman who explained the process …

Coin Jewelry: Making Souvenirs into Something Beautiful

I’m proud to say that my mom is one of my biggest role models.

Earings

Throughout the years, I’ve always been a big jewelry trend follower.

Since I’ve grown into my own style – and stopped looking at the pages of Tiger Beat magazine for my outfit inspos – I’ve grown out of the excess amount of jewelry I used to …

10 Pieces in My Closet I Can’t Live Without

After a lot of procrastination and brain storming, I’ve decided I want to first put out content for you (whoever I can guilt into reading these posts) to get to know me, and how better to do that then to raid my closet. Here are 10 pieces from my closet that I can’t live without: 1. Highlighter Sundress If you know me at all, you’ve probably seen me in this highlighter hued dress one too many times. I found this gem in the clearance room at Urban Outfitters almost four years ago and it’s been one of my favorite pieces ever …
