Hi friends! It’s been far too long since I last posted here, and if you follow me on Instagram, you probably know why. I’ve been in Europe for the past two weeks, and I had an absolutely wonderful time! I hadn’t traveled abroad in six years, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed exploring new places. I visited Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, and England, and I have so many photos that I can’t wait to share here on the blog. Travel has a way of reminding me of who I am and what matters to me, and I’ve returned refreshed and ready to dive in to some creative ideas, and of course, blogging.
As much as I love beauty routines, one area I often overlook is a classic manicure. As a nearly life-long pianist and violinist, I’ve never payed too much attention to my hands or nails, other than to make sure my nails were trimmed short.

When I first made the switch to ethical fashion, I was concerned about finding pieces I loved in my price point, and while there are a lot of good reasons to invest in more expensive pieces, sometimes you simply can’t make those expenditures. I’m young, and working on saving rather than spending a lot of money on costly clothing, and as much as I love style, I’ve found methods of expressing it and shopping ethically without breaking the bank.
Here are my top 5 tips for shopping ethically on a budget
Friends! It’s time for the very last look in my spring 10×10 style challenge! This has been such a fun creative exercise for me, but I’m so excited to have my full closet to pick from again tomorrow. I love how this challenge has pushed me to try new ways to wear the items in my closet, and today’s look is one of my favorite new combinations. It’s made of up of two pieces I would never have thought to put together outside of the 10×10 restrictions, and I love how it looks. The combination of a fitted top and full skirt is a nod to some of my favorite vintage looks,
