i have wanted a vintage mercedes since high school! i’ve always loved the way they look more than any other new car. my grandma is still rocking her red convertible in her 70’s! so i finally decided to buy one, because…well, just because! i purchased it online the other day for a great deal. i haven’t officially SEEN it yet, but i am so excited for it to arrive!
as cheesy as it sounds, i can’t wait to rock the style that comes along with this cute car!
shop this look: mengly hernandez silk scarf, nars bright red lipstick, ban.do hair ties for windy rides, my hot tools curling iron, topshop funky sweater, celine sunglasses, and michael kors gold hoop earrings.
traveling in style is not an easy task, i’m not one to wear full on pajamas on a plane but i do want to be comfortable. i always have a few essentials on hand that make flying a bit more enjoyable and allow me to arrive at my destination refreshed and ready for adventure. i love this post kira put together with some of her favorite items, i will definitely be adding some of these in on my next trip!
“I’ve got a month long trip to Portugal coming up which I am so excited about, (If anyone has any great tips to share, I’d love to hear them! It’s my first time- we are going all over!) so, of course, travel is on my mind. Especially those long overnight flights. I went to college in Buenos Aires, Argentina, so the long haul is not new for me. After all these years of experience, I’ve dialed in my in-flight line up. Leggings are a must for sleeping and maximum comfort so to take my outfit up a notch (and not feel blah) I pair them with a chic, oversized sweater and booties. It’s all about disguising comfort as “understated chic.” Also I know I’m always cold on the plane. A blanket-like scarf and cozy socks keep me covered, literally. And then there are all of the other little accouterments that make the trip go more smoothly and comfortably. Explore the photos below for ideas! (And do let me know about those Portugal recommendations please…)” - kira

my hair routine is pretty simple, most of the time i like to keep it all natural but i always appreciate the way a different hair style can mix up someone’s look or take a basic outfit and make it a little more glamorous. i asked my friend ashley to come up with four different hair tutorials that could be created in less then four steps. (if i’m gonna do my hair, it’s gotta be easy!) take a peek and let me know if you try one, i’d love to see!
i think my favorite was the knotted ponytail. it’s so easy, it’s laughable.

the long weekend might be over but summer has just begun and we all have lots of beach/pool days to look forward to! love this next style grid that kira
created, i wouldn’t mind snagging a few of these beachy items for myself…
All I wanna be doing lately is relaxing outside in the sun. Hello amazing summer! Realistically though? More often than not I’m inside working. But putting this post together was a great excuse to indulge my weekend day dreams. A day lounging on the beach is a true summer time treat and below are a bunch of ideas to help make that day the best it can be. Let’s soak up that sunshine (with full protection, of course) before, in the blink of an eye, it’s gone again (and back to dreary weather). – kira
