Starbucks at Home

February 26, 2015

I am so excited to announce that I have teamed up with Starbucks as a part of their Blogger Community! To kick off the program, they sent me some of their classic coffee flavors, a pour-over brewer, some glassware, a calendar and a coffee passport.

To be honest, I am normally a patron of the Starbucks drive-thru, so it was fun to experience the different coffee flavors and the experience of making it at home. John and I spent last Sunday morning in the kitchen, grinding the beans and smelling all of the delicious coffee flavors. John was drawn to the Dark Cafe Verona, while I am a fan of the Blonde Veranda Blend. We also tested out the pour-over brew method (which I highly recommend)! It is simple to use, makes a great cup of coffee and is dishwasher friendly.

I used my new ceramic travel mug this week for work, and it was fantastic, too. I love that Starbucks makes stylish dish-ware that is substantial, well-made and effective. It kept my coffee warm and the bright red chevron pattern is trendy and cute!

I cannot wait to share more with you in partnership with Starbucks in the coming year! If you end up trying the pour-over brew method, tell me what you think :)

Good Vibes

February 23, 2015

I have been dying to wear this Chloe Oliver top ever since it arrived, and it was finally warm enough on Saturday to bust it out. I love the resort-wear look with the detailed stitching around the neckline and back. My favorite part, though, is the moody dark ombre color that allows me to wear it now versus waiting for the summer months. I can envision myself taking it on my honeymoon and pairing it with some white jeans or shorts. 

Also, I am basically obsessed with this clutch since it does all the talking - literally. The "hello" and "goodbye" on each side is so subtle, yet really cute! I wore it all weekend long. Speaking of weekend, I can imagine yours may have been better than mine! To keep a long story short, our sweet Maggie girl is battling some health issues and we hope she gets better soon. Send good vibes my way if you can :)

Cool Blue & Casual

February 13, 2015

CAbi Foldover Collar Jacket c/o | CAbi Mix Print Tunic c/o | Old Navy Rockstar Jeans | J. Serene Alexandra Pointy Toe in Grey Nubuck c/o | Old Navy Earrings and Ring | Jeans & A T-Shirt Handbag in Powder Blue c/o

I have really learned to love and appreciate the importance of a great layering piece... specifically, jackets. They are functional and stylish, and literally add the sophistication of a multi-layered outfit. The reason I love this CAbi jacket is because it is casual and comfortable, but tailored in style with the fitted cut and unique collar. The material is a lightweight cotton, which makes it feel like I stepped out in a sweatshirt... (best feeling ever)! The zipper closure makes it more modern, and I would definitely be equally as comfortable wearing this to work or wearing it on the weekend.

I paired the jacket with a cool blue tunic, my favorite Old Navy rockstar jeans and pretty powder blue accessories. These gorgeous J. Serene heels are a new favorite, I cannot wait to put them in regular rotation this spring. They look chic and sophisticated, almost like something you would find at Zara. If you want them for less than $30, use code ENVISIONPRETTY10 at J.Serene for 10% off :)

Have a happy Friday fantastic long weekend, friends!

His & Hers: Valentine's Day Style

February 12, 2015

Simplicity wins this year when it comes to Valentine's Day attire. In the past, I have gotten super dolled up and dressy, but this year John and I are both keeping it casual. He has a surprise date planned, so I am in the dark about a lot of the details, but thank goodness he gave me a dress code! I came across this sexy lace t-shirt and feminine pleated skirt at Sears and thought it would be perfect for the occasion. I made this flirty look even more Valentine's Day appropriate with some bright red heels and a sparkly clutch from Sole Society. Obviously, a bright red lip was a requirement :)

As a gift, I got John a blue, purple and black plaid fitted dress shirt and black v-neck sweater, and both fit like a charm! He looks put together and classy without having to wear a sport coat. 

Happy Valentine's Day from both of us!
