Socks & Sandals

Today I wore....

Socks & Sandals!!

I can't deny it, I love this trend!
Wearing: Urban Outfits Neon Ankle Socks, Jeffrey Campbell Ruffle Platforms

I think I also forgot to show you guys the platform sandals that I bought at the beginning of summer. They're my "Summer Shoe".

Wearing: Platform Sandals from Steve Madden with neon pink tights from Paris.

As you can see, I have a thing for platforms and hot pink hosiery.

I've had my ruffle platforms forever now, I don't know how they're not falling apart. I love my summer platform sandals because they're cute and 70's and have that clog-inspired shape, without actually being clogs (you know?).

I would have shown you my outfit today but after a long day of work and trekking through the city in 6 inch heels, I'm exhausted. Until next time!

Flavs at the Flea Market:

Evening, Loves!

This weekend was fabulous.
I managed to experience bowling in a way that I've never experienced it before, followed by an amazing and impromptu stop into the Vans OTW Collection release party! The weekend also consisted of dining with my fellow lady interns, brunching solo at a romantic french bistro, sitting in the park, and much more.

Perhaps the highlight of my weekend was my first Philadelphia flea market trip!

It was booths like these that made my heart swoon...

Soo many jewels!!

Here are some photos of my precious finds, as well as some of me putting them to good use:

Vintage Weiss Crystal Brooch

My Loot: Two Neon Vintage Turban-Headwraps, Vintage Weiss Crystal Brooch, Vintage Coin-Purse Locket, Vintage German Chain-mail Coin Purse

Hope you all like my latest treasures!

Been to any good fleas lately?

P.S.- Keep your eyes peeled for my "Guide to Flea Market Shopping", coming up soon on The Gainesville Style!

Lady Vanderbilt

Hey there!

Gosh I really need to post more often! I guess the internship has just been keeping me soo busy and I'm so tired when I get home. Promise: more updates coming up!!

In other news...
I wanted to tell you guys about a really darling jewelry brand, Lady Vanderbilt!
They recently sent me one of their adorable "Miss Initial" charm necklaces, and I couldn't wait to show it to you. You don't know how happy I was to receive this pretty package in the mail...
My first Philadelphia package, by the way!!

Look at that little beauty! The "Miss Initial" charm necklaces are wonderful because they come in EVERY letter of the alphabet. I never find "F" accessories, so I was especially delighted about this. The necklace is on a delicate gold-colored 18" chain, perfect for layering or wearing alone, and hanging from it is the precious, teeny letter charm and three Swarovski crystals (all 14k gold plated).

We all know that I love to wear many-a-jewel...

Recently I've been particularly intrigued by adding delicate little pieces into my jewelry repertoire, and this charm necklace is perfect. The little "F" makes a very cute statement.

I just adore how teeny it is:

Just about the size of a fingernail...

I'd have to say that what I especially love about this little gem is that it only costs $36.00 and the craftsmanship is impeccable. I know I'll be wearing mine paired with my favorite vintage jewels, or just alone with my summer frocks.

You can purchase these wonderful charm necklaces on the Lady Vanderbilt website, here.

If you have any questions about the necklace, feel free to shoot me a comment!

Let me know what you think!

When all else fails, dress like a butterfly...

Today was the first day of my internship, and from the bottom of my heart I feel so happy and excited for what is to come. Meeting the other interns, staff, and my fabulous marketing team just has my heart fluttering. I've already learned so much and have met so many wonderful, brilliant minds.

With the help of a few of my besties, I chose this butterfly (or flutterby) inspired outfit for my first day. I was so tired after a long day's work that I couldn't help but do silly poses. I love that when you lift your arms in this adorable Urban Outfitter's MINKPINK dress, you look like you're in flight. I think that this summer will be my metamorphosis...

Worn with my new favorite Betsey Johnson earrings, Italian bangles, and shiny new Steve Madden flats.

Good night, flutterbies!
