Online Favourites…

A friends recently asked me what my favorite online shopping sites were, and that got me thinking, I have tons I would love to share with all of you! So there are the basics… such as Topshop, Zara, Asos, River Island, etc. but I thought I would take this time to share with you some of my favorites that you might not have ever heard of. So here are my top 10 favorite online stores (in no specific order, and disclosing the previous ones just stated which I absolutely adore :P), and a few of my current favorite pieces from them…

3. Mura Boutique

This is an Australian store, and it’s about to be summer there so all of their items are summer related. They still have great pieces and can get their winter items on sale when their season is over! What a win!

Plaid Shirt: Charlotte Rousse (last season)

It’s an extremely gloomy, rainy day here in DC. As soon as I was ready to take some pictures, it started to pour 😦 Lucky enough, it cleared for the rest of the night! My lovely boyfriend was my photographer and actually did so much better than I expected! Although he made fun of me most of the time, I think I’ll keep him (; This is such a casual chic outfit that can be worn for a night out, or with a pair of sneakers for a day having lunch with some friends. I haven’t had many opportunities to expand my closet recently (aka go shopping :P) so I’ve done a lot of playing around with the pieces I have. I think that’s one of the key necessities to being a stylish individual. Spending isn’t always available and we don’t all get clothes for free like the many blogger inspirations we see with new pieces nearly every other day. Making the most of the pieces you have is key. One pair of jeans can make 5 different significant outfits that never look the same! Keep an open mind 🙂

I had an absolute BLAST with my friend in NYC this weekend. We hit every great spot in the city (especially shopping spots – of course (; ), relaxed, took our time, and enjoyed every bit of it! It is by far my favourite place. My dreams are to hopefully live there someday! I’ll just keep adding to that savings account… haha. Usually I try to throw on something casual yet chic and comfy because walking around the city all day can get very tiring, but yet I still always feel not fashionable enough to compare to those New Yorkers! I was very pleased when I got quite the few compliments on my attire so I took it as a must to share. (Oh and I was enjoying some beautiful cappuccino gelato in these pics! haha) I hope you all had a weekend as great as mine!

Skinny Dipping…

IMG_1873 IMG_1905

I found this little gem on a UK website called SkinnyDip London and fell madly in love! Their selection of phone cases is so unique and adorable, I had to get one (and trust me, a few more than necessary in the future too!) It only took about a week to get here, and even with some shipping questions through email, staff answered my questions within a few hours and were so very sweet! So you can see why I just had to share this with you. They have so many other amazing options, I doubt you could actually go through their site without wanting one yourself.

Here are a few others I adore… (pictures click through to links)

I hope you find something you love!

RocksBox My Socks Off…

Jewelry – the tiny (or not so tiny) beautiful gems we wear that always uplift, or entirely make an outfit what it is. Seasons come and go, and sometimes it’s hard to keep up to trend on the latest statement pieces, and not only that, jewelry can be mighty expensive. So I joined Rocksbox! It’s the perfect way to stay in style and in budget. With a small monthly fee you receive a box of designer jewelry in which you can choose to borrow for some time, buy pieces in your box if your heart is set, or swap pieces for new ones at any time. Cool, right? Except here’s the catch, you can get your first month with Rocksbox free by using the code tatimoretoxoxo at check out. If you decide after your first month that Rocksbox isn’t the way for you, you can always cancel your membership. But a month of designer jewelry, for free!? You really just can’t go wrong…

I can’t wait to share with all of you my first Rocksbox 🙂

Fur Vest Take 2…

Faux Fur Vest: H&M

Jeans: Tommy Hilfiger

Heels: Aldo

Hat: Forever 21

I haven’t worn this vest since the fall, so I thought it absolutely necessary to take it out of my closet for the day. I paired it with all black (a go-to to always look stylish), including this adorable wide brimmed fedora. We are finally settled in our new house! Yay! So, back to the regular old work grind (+ I joined the nearby gym (; super excited to get into that summer shape!)

Grumpy Puppy

IMG_1651 IMG_1655 IMG_1659 IMG_1663 IMG_1664 IMG_1670

This comfy and casual outfit is a must for me! It’s hard to constantly shop and add new items to my wardrobe, so I constantly try to make the best of what I have and create new looks with the some of the same pieces. The more you experiment with the clothes you have the more different looks you can have! Even try and incorporate some old clothes that you don’t really wear anymore but just can’t get rid of; you will be surprised.

Grey Top – Truly Madly Deelpy

Plaid Shirt – J.Crew

Black Jeans – Tommy Hilfiger

Booties – Aldo

Doggy Hat – Urban Outfitters

Holiday Outfit Inspiration

Hey loves!

I’ve been working to write a post of some gorgeous pieces that are great to wear for the holidays. While I was looking through my 115 online stores on my Delicious page (it’s a website where you can make a profile and keep a list of websites. I use it to keep all of the cool stores I find in one place. You can make a page and even check out mine at Delicious.com). After finding a few things, I landed on my next link to the store, Chic Wish. I totally forgot about this store so when I skimmed across their pieces I fell in absolute LOVE (seriously. I was peeing myself and so was my close-to-empty bank account).

So for this Holiday outfit inspiration, I chose more than a few items from Chic Wish for you to fall in love with too.
