Pop!

pop

Pop art is one of my favorite kinds. My freshman year, I took a class on the history of pop art and I just absolutely fell in love. That’s why, when I saw that Kate Spade had done a number of Roy Lichtenstein-inspired pieces, I fell in LOVE! He is my absolute favorite artist in the genre, I love his bold lines and comic book feel. Something about it just screams fun…the art isn’t super serious. I think that’s the perfect way to sum up Kate Spade, too–fun and not super-serious, but definitely still chic.

Do you love pop art? What do you think of Kate Spade’s collection?

OOTD — 02/26/13

So khaki pants and sweaters are pretty much what I reach for when I get up to get ready these (wintery) mornings. I love how sweaters look layered on top of a button down or polo shirt. Not only do I love this outfit, but ‘Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ’ by O.P.I. (pictured to the left), is probably my absolute nail color of all time. I just had to show it off in this O.O.T.D.!

Favorite Store: Francesca’s!

Hey Everyone!

So I live in Charleston, South Carolina and work at our Athletics Department, which is located on famous King Street, world renowned for its shopping! Not only does King Street feature national favorites such as J. Crew, Lilly Pulitzer, the Gap, Forever 21, and more, but it is also famous for its cute and unique boutiques! One of my favorites happens to be Francesca’s!

I have been trying to save money and avoid King St as much as possible, but on my walk back from work today I saw the cutest things in the window at Francesca’s and just couldn’t help myself from popping in! Before long, I was in the dressing room holding 12 items and ended up buying some things!

Francesca’s is not only cute and adorable, but also SUPER affordable for dresses, nice blouses, and awesome jewelry and bags! I buy a lot of pieces here that last forever and can go from class to a night out on the town to a formal event or interview! They also color code the store, which I think is awesome, and have amazing little accessories or gifts which work for birthdays or events in a pinch. They have boutiques located across the country, but their website is also fabulous and offers amazing deals!

Here are some of my favorites that I saw in the store today, so check them out in your local Francesca’s or online!

What Time Is It?!

I’m planning on using my birthday money to buy a new watch…the only problem is I can’t decide which watch to get!  I currently have a tortoise shell watch, so I’m thinking that I should get a gold or rose gold watch…but there are TOO MANY choices!

What are your favorite watches?  Which do you think I should get?

Study Playlist 2.

I don’t know about y’all but all of my midterms seem like they are starting up this week, and as much as I hate spending my time in the library, it’s the only place where I am guaranteed to be free of too many distractions. So to liven up my week (and hopefully yours), I put together this great study playlist with super chill and not too distracting songs that are just enough to keep you awake, but not too much to keep you from focusing on your studies. I hope that it helps you as much as it has helped me to stay motivated! PS, If you want the link to the playlist on Spotify, just comment below.

Good luck on midterms!

Happy Galentine’s Day!

galentine

I’ve been watching a lot of Parks and Recreation lately (seriously, you should check it out on Netflix!), and one thing that I really love is “Galentine’s Day”. For those of you not in the know, Galentine’s Day was created by the show’s main character, Leslie Knope, to celebrate all of the great ladies in her life. It’s celebrated on February 13th, and is an awesome excuse to tell all of your girlfriends why you love them.

Here are some ideas to help you celebrate with friends:

  • Treat your best friend to her favorite latte
  • Have an all girls pajama party and rent chick flicks from RedBox
  • Bake cookies!
  • Write a letter to your best lady friends telling them how much you appreciate them
  • Get them a new bottle of nail polish you know they’ll love
  • Host a cocktail night

Today I am definitely going to be spreading the love to all of the great women in my life!

xoxo, Karoline

Valentine’s Day Baking

As I’m sure you guys have figured out from my fast few posts…I am a huge romantic who absolutely LOVES Valentine’s Day—the decorations, colors, gifts, and the whole idea behind Valentine’s Day is simply wonderful to me. Even without a Valentine, February 14th is still a day to recognize and appreciate the people in your life, like your friends and family, who you love.

One thing that really gets me into the Valentine’s Day spirit is baking. There are thousands of “love” themed recipes out there, and today I’ve assembled a few Valentine’s Day treats that I think you will really enjoy baking!

 

1. Cupcakes and Cookies

Cookies and cupcakes are two very “go-to” choices when it comes down to figuring out what to bake. However, what people don’t always realize is that cookies and cupcakes that need to be decorated open the door to endless possibilities! Use sprinkles, dyed frosting, and Valentine’s Day candy to spruce up sugar cookies and cupcakes. If you’re making the classic chocolate chip cookie, why not add Valentine’s Day red, pink, and white M&Ms to the mix? If you are looking to get really fancy, try something different like the Red Velvet Crinkle Cookie (these are sooo good!) Get the how to here!

2. Fruity Treats

Don’t forget about fruit! Valentine’s Day treats do not always need to be baked; Heart Shaped Fruit Kabobs and Chocolate Covered Strawberries are refreshing and just as festive, sweet and tasty as any cookies or cupcakes!

3. Miscellaneous Treats

These I just had to throw in here. The Pretzel Kiss Candies and Marshmallow Pops look so delicious, and so easy to make.  Don’t be afraid to get creative, and non traditional with your baking!
