Noticeably Nude

Recently I find myself obsessing over nude nail polish. I typically go for deep reds but recently nude polish seems classic and refreshing. It makes the nails look longer and chips are less noticeable when in between appointments.

Below are a few pinterest finds to get you inspired to try this look!

Let’s fly, let’s fly away!

Oh! hello agian holiday travel…we meet agian! Something I love to hate but at the end of the day must do. With travel on the brain, I have my eye on a new duffle to replace the old L.L. bean I had from highschool. Though I would love to arrive in style with the luxurios Bottega Venta pictured below, my budget tends to be torn between the J. Crew and C. Wonder options. Both are fabulous with the perfect amount of room to stuff a weekend wardrobe in. I love the idea of the easy to clean nylon with monogram options from C. Wonder but I also adore the clean classic look offered up from J. Crew.

Decisions, decisions! Tweet me your pick @theprettypeach

Keep it peachy!

My latest lust at lunch romp led me to the ever so fab Kate Spade. The staff was über friendly and helped me write-up a few things to add to the Christmas list! Check out some of  the items that had me at hello!

With my daunting morning ride, coffee has become a fabulous friend. My ‘workman’ mug is not only embarrassingly ugly to be seen with, it doesn’t work very well. Look at this lovely thermos…LOVE!

Of course a few of Kate’s one of a kind purses caught my eye. For a fun accent to any outfit, I adore the pardon my french clutch. As one who has been known to let a few words fly, the clasp adorned with explicative typewriter keys confirmed my love for this bag.

For a more practical day-to-day purse, the charlotte street sylvie stood out. It’s classic lines and shape sure to transcend season to season.

Let’s all go to Boston

My obsession with my beautiful Boston Terrier is never ending. My Layla (above) is a spunky little nugget filled with fun and the most fowl toots I have ever taken a whiff of! If you have never had the pleasure of coming across a Boston pooch you are missing out!

While researching my last post {Here} I came across a few Boston terrier stationery sets and it left me thinking: what other Boston items am I missing out on? Thinking I would only find a few things, I was shocked when I found all the cuteness below!

#1.) Madewell threw me a bone with they decided to create this brass necklace. They call it ‘bulldog’ I call it Boston! Go scoop this {Here}

#2.) Bling Bling! Check out this Boston ring {Here}

#3.) This Etsy find let’s you personalize your necklace with your pup’s name – but I would use my own {Here}

#4.) Matching earrings? Thanks Madewell! Found {Here}

#5.) I am really into home decor at the moment and love the idea of adding this pillow {Here} to my collection

#6.) C. Wonder went for the awwww factor when adding this cutie to their stationery collection {Here}

#7.) With winter on it’s way – what a cute way to say hello  {Here}

#8.) When running to the grocer, gym or couch show some Boston love while keeping snug in this sweatshirt {Here}

#9.) Christmas is just around the corner – what a cute way to share some cheer or give a little moo-lah {Here}

#10.) Not only is this ceramic plate cute – it’s practical. Whether acting as a catch all or cheese holder – this Boston adds a little spunk to any decor {Here}

 


Bootieful

My love for J. Crew leads me through their doors during many of my lunch breaks. The most recent visit entailed me trying on a fabulous pair of wedge booties. Once my foot slid into this beautiful boot creation I have been unable to get them off my mind. Thus this post is fully devoted to admiring beautiful booties. Enjoy!

Falling into Trenches

Fall is in full swing. The trees here are a beautiful shade of orange and red with cold mornings warmed by the afternoon sun. Along with the change in seasons comes change to my closet. Down south fall meant finding long sleeve items not breaking out the outerwear, but here I have noticed my closet lacking fall essentials. One such would be the classic trench coat. How in my 24 years of life have I not invested in this classic key item?

A trench coat can dress up the most casual of outfits while keeping you comfortably warm. With just enough weight to keep the cool air at bay, this is a perfect fit for the fall season in the south. This timeless piece brings to mind fashion icons like Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn.

So I have decided this is a need not want and the time to  invest is now! Here are some of my fave trenches this season. Some are lust but one is a must! Help me decide…

Let’s Geo

As an employee of Lenox Mall, strolling through your fave designer goodies on your lunch break is a perk! These short browsing sessions lead to longer sessions of lusting. My most recent lunch find mixes two of my favorite things at the moment: print and navy. Baste your sight on this little nugget: The J. Crew Collection No. 2 classic pencil skirt in graphic print.

Though I am one who normally opposes the thought of stripes across one’s thighs, I am quite found of this funky geometric print. This skirt is perfect for jazzing up boring office looks. The navy and black combo balance out the funky for a sophisticated  look. I absolutely love how J. Crew styled the model with nerdy glasses but the dotty top would not be my first choice! I may just have to find a spot for this in my closet when the piggy is full!
