LET'S START SPRING SHOPPING

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a restful weekend! I'm sure many of you watched the Oscars last night; I tuned in for a few moments but mostly worked through it. My red carpet favorites had to be Reese Witherspoon, Rosamund Pike, Dakota Johnson, and Zoe Saldana. Anyways, congratulations to all the nominees (I'm certainly jealous of their gift bags) and winners. 
Well, February is ending and spring weather is around the corner (at least for Texans) and I've got my eye on my spring pieces already. Just in time, Piperlime has put all their sale on sale. Score 30% off sale and 50% off final sale with code SALEONSALE until tomorrow (2/24). I don't know about you, but I am taking full advantage of this opportunity. Even though a majority of these items are winter/fall pieces, they can still fit into your spring wardrobe! It's all about picking the right cut/fabric/color/etc. To facilitate your shopping process, I've rounded up some of my favorite picks from the sale and some items I've got my eye on for spring.

Hello! First of all, sorry this post is coming so late... I ran into some technical difficulties! I've rounded up my favorite things/links for the week for you guys to enjoy. My weekend will be full of catching up on sleep (and tv shows) and homework, what about you?

- To see what goes on behind the scenes at NYFW, read through some recent posts on The Coveteur. I would be lying if I said I didn't spend a good twenty minutes yesterday going through their posts. 



- Are you following me on Pinterest? It's my favorite place to go for inspiration. 



- Want to see the photos that don't make it on my Instagram? Check out my "Unpublished from Instagram" post. 



- Another shoutout to my graphic designer, Cristina for her fabulous work on my site! What do you think of the new design?

UNPUBLISHED FROM MY INSTAGRAM



I've always got a few #dailycortado shots in my camera roll. This is actually a different angle of this instagram


The setup at a birthday brunch. 

Get the recipe for this lunch here


 Sunday Afternoon study session @ Starbucks (multiple coffee cups not pictured)

Ordered this ring from Bing Bang and it came in perfect black packaging. 

Eucalyptus spotting @ Club Monaco. 


The gorgeous campus of Washington University in St. Louis





Since I've gotten so much positive feedback on my previous "unpublished" post, I've decided to do another. I take so many pictures every day, but not all of them end up on my Instagram. Sometimes I never post the photos I love for the sake of feed cohesiveness (I get obsessed with instagram), so now I've found a place to post them. I hope you enjoy these pictures and a peek into my camera roll.

S & P LOVES | 2.17

Here's what I've been loving lately.....
DVF's updated heels: DVF's spring line is full of gingham prints and tortoiseshell heels. Now I'm not one to go full on gingham, I am not opposed to a chic updated black sandal. Here's hoping these end up on my feet. 



Minted Art: I'm always looking for ways to update my room decor, so naturally my art pieces are constantly on rotation. Minted has hundred of art pieces at reasonable prices, so I've been stalking their site to find the perfect accent piece. Shown above is this piece by artist Katie Craig.


 
My go to gloss: If I find the right color -- I will use it for years. For me that used to be Laura Mercier "blush", but I can't seem to find it anywhere so I've moved on. I actually bought this color by mistake (I thought it was the one next to it), but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a nude with a little bit of sparkle, perfect for everyday wear, Nars' "Supervixen". 


The only nude you need: Again, I'm back at it with the nudes. I am normally a navy-polish girl during the winter months, but this RGB color has me opting for lighter hues. It's a hybrid between a nude & a pink and has been on my nails for the last month or so. 


Blue & white prints: With spring around the corner, I'm focused on airy dresses & sandals. These stunners from Rebecca Minkoff  and Joie  are currently topping my spring wish-list. All you need are some tan sandals and minimal jewelry for an outfit. 


Chic phone cases: I don't know how, but I stumbled upon San Francisco designer Julia Kostreva a couple months ago and have been loving her phone cases. Right now I have the tortoiseshell case on my phone right now (love it) and might get a few more to switch out with. There are cases for all iPhones too!

CHECKING IN -- FEBRUARY

photo via my Instagram

So I haven't posted in a week--why is that? 

As much as I hate skipping out on you guys, I just couldn't write last week. It's not exactly because I didn't have time (which I did't), but I feel the content I could have written would not be anything worth publishing. Also, you may note that my blog has been re-designed! I wanted to give S&P a more mature look and I hope you guys are as happy with the results as I am! (Thank you to Cristina!) But anyways, back to my life. School is getting harder, SAT scores came out, and everything isn't perfect. In short, my week wasn't hot. I know I may be incredibly inconsistent, but to me I should only blog when I have something to say/contribute/share. I don't know about you, but I don't want to put out content that I created in a rush at 2 A.M. So, that's why I was absent this past week. I hope you guys understand and I plan to keep blogging daily! 


P.S. I updated my about page!

Hi all. 
I know things may look a bit wacky or different...but no worries, S & P is just getting a little work done. This is only temporary, so I will be back to normal soon. Sorry for the inconvenience folks.
