August Favorites

August Favorites

Morning, Lovelies! I apologize for the lack of posting the past two weeks. I was on vacation in Cancun (mini travel vlog coming soon!) and moving back into college in Manhattan (dorm tour also coming soon!) and it was just too crazy to keep up my normal schedule. But now that I'm settled in, things can get back to normal! With that said, here's this month's favorites!

One of the best parts of working retail is when an amazing sale goes up out-of-the-blue, and you're able to snatch up the best bits before anyone else for crazy cheap! I scooped these J.Crew Gemma flats up for about $13, and I'm in love! They add such a gorgeous pop of color to any outfit, and match my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise perfectly!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Nordstrom has always been one of my favorite retailers. Great products, beautiful stores, and amazing customer service, not to mention the Anniversary Sale every year! It's not some picked-through sale either. Everything is new-arrivals for the fall season at discounted prices from July 22 - August 7th, but if you have a Nordstrom card, you get early access to the sale starting today!! If you don't have a card, don't fret, you can still view the sale and plan your shopping bag ahead of time! Below I listed my top picks for the sale! Click any of the images to go to the sale! Happy Shopping!

Fleur

Fleur

Doesn't everyone carry around a purse full of flowers? Maybe not, it's a bit impractical, but makes for some very cute photos! I loved the way these spring blooms peeked out of my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise. To compliment the already ultra-feminine look, I picked out this fun midi skier that I made about a year ago. Midi skirts are so pretty and fun, and fairly easy to sew if you know the basics!

Bardot

Bardot

I couldn't wait to break out this easy black Bardot-shoulder dress! Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are so subtly sexy, and perfect for the hot summer months! The trapeze-style silhouette keeps it classy, and I couldn't help but pair it with a chic vintage silk scarf tied as a headband

Brooklyn Trench

Brooklyn Trench

As you read this, I'm currently relaxing at home in Texas! I'm so thankful to get to come home for the weekend, relax a bit, and go to my close friend's bridal shower! I shot this look last Saturday in DUMBO, Brooklyn at this gorgeous colorful wall we found! I love this classic but casual look, it's easy, comfortable, and chic!

April Showers

April Showers

Good morning, Lovelies! Naturally, we're kicking off April with a few showers, and slightly colder weather, but the cold-front can't keep me down in a new pair of J.Crew Ryder pants and a cute raincoat! I went for a very navy look, with a gingham button-down and J.Crew Addie loafers to match! To break up the blue hues, I added my (beloved) Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise, (I did a What's in my Bag tour, if you're interested!) and swiped on my NARS matte lip pencil in Cruella. You can never go wrong with red lipstick and winged liner, am I right?

In My Bag: Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise

I was ecstatic when I opened this Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise on Christmas morning this year, and ever since then, it has become the perfect bag for everyday and for taking to my internship! Today, I thought I would give a little peek inside and tell y'all what's hiding in this little red gem. Watch the video for a full, unedited version (complete with random papers, metrocards, and way too many lip products) or just keep scrolling for my edited version!

Currently Craving: February

This month is February, and you know what that means, Valentine's Day! (and my birthday, woohoo!) Here's a list of some thing's I've had my eye on (most of which aren't "traditional" valentine's gifts, but who wants another heart shaped necklace and a box of mystery chocolate?)

J.Crew Ryder Pants

I've been eyeing this gorgeous, classic pants for awhile, and after trying them on in-store, I can attest that they are sleek, comfortable, and so cute! Definitely craving them in both black and navy, but they carry olive green and brown as well! 

Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte is known for it's fantastic pressed-powder products made with amazonian clay (Their clay blushes are my all-time favorites!) and this new edition to their line is full of gorgeous eyeshadow shades that are buttery, pigmented, and such beautiful shades. I swatched them in a Sephora a few weeks ago and I've been dreaming of it ever since!

J.Crew Factory Bucket Bag

Bucket bags are so functional and trendy, and this brown leather one from J.Crew Factory is simple and chic. It will work with anything from leggings and an oversized sweater, to a cute dress and heels. 

Kate Spade Travel Mugs

For your favorite coffee lover, (whether this be yourself or someone else) the Kate Spade travel mugs are too cute to pass up and will brighten up anyone's morning! They come in a ton of adorable colors and patterns, but I'm especially in love with that gold stripe!

Kiel James Patrick Pearl Bracelet

This classic glass pearl bracelet is stunningly simple, and looks beautiful worn alone or in a stack of your other favorites. The anchors come in both silver and gold, and the ribbon ties come in many different colors. They're all handmade in Rhode Island, and KJP also has apparel, tons more jewelry, hats, and shoes!

What have you had your eye on this month? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Monday, Lovelies! I had a great time at the NY Gift show yesterday (if you aren't already following me on Snapchat, the pics might still be up: @AudraKoch6) Today I pulled out this loud printed mini dress from LOFT and decided to pair it with simple tights and heeled booties.

The dress is a little on the short side, and the all-black tights and shoes combo help make legs look miles long. I added just a little something extra with a long pendent necklace and tiny gold bracelets, this one with a little sailors knot, and mantra band are my favorites!
