the jet set – cafe fashionista

“of course I have played outdoor games. i once played dominoes in an open air cafe in paris.”

hi friends!

today’s jet set guest is the one and only erika from cafe fashionista.  this past year, we quickly discovered our common love of mixtape making, all things fashion and the rest is history. here are a few of the many reasons i adore cafe fashionista:

no.1: erika’s “splurge vs. save” feature allows me to indulge in fabulous fashion finds at a ridiculous price.

no.2: the weekly “play it again, sam” playlists get me through the crazy work days.

no.3: her bubbly spirit always makes me smile.

i hope you enjoy miss erika’s dream getaway as much as yours truly!

color code: 

i am 100% completely head over heels in love with the color coral this summer – it’s the perfect blend of pink, red, and orange!

page turners: 

summer is a time for chick lit, at least in my book (no pun intended!)

    I’ve only been to nyc in the heart of the summer once, a few years ago, and loved it. The energy level in that little town never lessens, no matter what the season. And love those totes, perfect for any destination, even around town at home.
