Top it Off

Today I’m mixing a few of my favorite oldies with two of my current staples — this J.Crew bag and these fabulous Cole Haan booties.

I’ve actually repeated this outfit in the last few weeks, once with my hair curled and once without. When it comes to wearing a hat, I think I prefer my hair curled a whole lot better. You can check out my hat hair curling tutorial here!

Also, a very Happy Birthday to my very best friend, Ellen! Love you! xo
