Glam of Thrones with Sorrelli Jewelry


If you have known me for any length of time or followed this blog from it's beginning you would know that I'm utterly obsessed with reading. So much so that even in middle school I was dubbed with the nickname "Books", thankfully 'Sami' was what stuck through those formidable years.

Nevertheless my love for reading and devouring the written word has never left me. While I love a good murder mystery or beach read, you can usually find me with the latest YA novel to hit the shelves (between Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and the Divergent Series...they have all been read countless times). I was recently contacted by Sorrelli Jewelry to let you know about their latest collaboration with New York Times best-selling author, Melissa De La Cruz and her new series The Ring and The Crown. To find out more about the novel, watch the trailer here, or follow along on Pinterest! PS. Fun fact, she's also author of Witches of East End, one of my new guilty pleasure TV shows!

Sorrelli is offering a discount code to all of my readers through the end of the month, simply enter GLAMOFTHRONES at check out for 10% off your purchase! Inspired by three characters in the story, Sorrielli Jewelry has curated jewels to match each personality of the characters in the novel, Ronan, Aewlyn, and Marie. My personal favorite? Aelwyn's collection.


The best news? I'm giving away a copy of The Ring and The Crown to one of my lucky readers! Just enter the contest below and the winner will be announced May 1st!

My Style: Colorblock Jacket


When the forecast calls for rain and you have every intention of taking outfit pictures, fashion bloggers have no choice than to get creative. As you can see here, I had to shoot inside my very messy home, though you cannot see the mess in these pictures. Had I flipped the camera around to every other corner of my house you would see wedding DIY projects in mid-creation, wedding gifts that have arrived in the mail but have yet to be put away, and even a suitcase I haven't unpacked. It's all about being real here people, especially when your pup demands your attention and could care less you that you are trying to look decent in a picture. 

These days I have seen my style change more towards minimalistic and simple, I am turning into a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. This rainy day called for outerwear that offered a bit of warmth when the forecast called for 60s and it was really only in the 40s. This leather sleeved jacket is perfect for these finicky spring days!

ModCloth | Wanelo Uniquely You Outfit Challenge



Last week ModCloth reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in participating in their Wanelo Uniquely You outfit challenge and I accepted! I'm always up for a style challenge. They asked if I could style a look around the Bouquet of Season Dress. At first look one could consider it a more dressy piece; however, I instantly wanted to dress it down taking it from a night out and remixing it with pieces to make it suitable for the weekend! With the farmer's market opening in a few weeks, I put together this perfect market day look.

Let's talk about these sandals - are you on the fence about Birkenstocks? I used to wear them all the time when I was little and am having a bit of a happy dance on the inside that they have taken the street style world by storm. This neutral pair is perfect to test them back out, or you can try and branch out with a colored sandal, I'm loving these yellow sandals.

Throw on your denim vestgold accessories and make sure to have your market bag as you head out the door! I can't wait for the abundance of fresh flowers, fruits and veggies ready to be devoured this summer!

Head over to Wanelo to see my style board curated with this casual weekend look and you can always find more stylish dresses at ModCloth today!

Swooning over PomPon by Plum Pretty Sugar


After getting engaged it didn't long in my wedding research to stumble upon Plum Pretty Sugar. Their iconic floral patterns can be recognized anywhere and have just debuted their fifth and most recent collection, PomPon and it couldn't be more swoon worthy. The PomPon collection features classic geometric shapes and feminine & flirty silhouettes.

Meant to be mix and matched, I can't help but gravitate to the Anouk Boyfriend Shirts and patterned robes! On my wedding day I will be for sure wearing something fun and flirty to make sure no make-up or hairspray gets on anything its not supposed to. And that Cloe Maxi Skirt, talk about a summer staple, I will take one in every color, especially since they are so affordable! Any of these pieces would make the perfect bridesmaid gifts, don't you think? Future brides - take note!

Let me know what pattern and style are your favorites in the comment section below!
