Weekly Obsessions

First, I know this is a depressing topic but when I heard Philip Seymour Hoffman died on Sunday I was kind of crushed. I always thought he was such an awesome actor and it's so sad when celebrities get caught up in drugs. How they can have all the money in the world and choose to waste their lives doing drugs is beyond me. I realize drug use is an addiction and he did go to rehab in 2012, but obviously no one knew he was this bad off. If you read the reports of people who saw him the day he died they all said he was acting normal and were shocked to  hear this was the same man. Along Came Polly is one of my favorite movies and I loved him as Sandy Lyle. RIP.




Ok, now on to the fun stuff



I have been on a floral kick lately. As soon as I saw this blouse I imagined myself wearing it with white jeans or white shorts in the summer. As you know I love Joie tops and although they are on the expensive range, they're truly worth it. I'll be keeping my eyes out for this top to see if it goes on sale.




I had ordered my first pair of Madewell jeans a few weeks ago and they just didn't fit right. I returned them and ordered these instead. These fit so much better. I think Madewell jeans may be my new favorite brand of denim. They are super soft and fit high on your waist, which I love. I love the ripped knee. Different from any jeans I own. I had decided this year I wasn't going to buy as much unnecessary things and I wanted one more light wash of jeans to round out my collection. So Theo if you're reading this, no more jean buying for me. I'm done!




I told you I've got florals on the brain. I saw a woman wearing this top the other day on TV and I thought it looked so cute and flattering on her. Later that day I was checking out J. Crew and found the top! This is such a good transition top to wear now to spring/summer. 





I've always worn bandeau tops because of the convenience of not having to worry about tan lines. Theo has always said they aren't the most flattering bathing suits on girls. I agree so I decided to look for something different this year. I would love to own a nice bathing suit. I always buy mine from VS and let's be real, they don't always hold up. I love this Mara Hoffman one. I've never owned a black bathing suit before and I love how this one has a pop of color in the stripes. Plus it looks like it's got good backside coverage and enough coverage for the girls too.






I know these will never in a million years be mine but I can still dream. I love the heel height so much. I'm a tall girl so a heel less than 3in is perfect for me. The ankle strap is so flattering too. They make your legs look amazing.We have a wedding to go to in March and these would be so perfect to wear! I follow Valentino on Instagram, you think maybe he could hook a girl up?!



{LARABAR Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough}

They had a box of these for $5 at Target and I knew Larabars are always good so I figured I'd try this flavor out. I don't know how they do it but these truly taste like chocolate chip cookie dough. It's seriously only nuts and fruits in the ingredients. If you see these snatch them up, you won't be disappointed.

  4. I am off to look at those jeans! I've been wanting some ripped jeans but haven't found the right pair for the right price. My friend has the Valnetino shoes in nude- they are gorgeous! But I don't think I could justify the price myself. And love that bathing suit!!

  9. I NEED those shoes! Aside from the fact that I can't afford them, I can't wear heels because I'm already really tall. I'll keep dreaming though!

  12. I love the back of that Mara Hoffman bikini!! The news about Phillip Seymor Hoffman is so sad. Since I am not an addict it is hard to wrap my mind around but I just imagine it's something that is very hard to battle. I feel for his young children. Such a loss.
