Boyfriend Shorts + New App

 I bet you're already tired of me wearing these boyfriend shorts.
Like... enough girlfriend, enough. Well sorrrrry, but I'm kinda sorta obsessed with this classic white button-down shirt and distressed denim combo.
I wore this to a coffee date a few weeks ago. Usually I opt for a bright lipstick, but I've being saying this quote pretty much all the time: "Lipstick lasts longer, but gloss is more fun!"
Gossip Girl reference anyone?

So happy Friiiiday and here's to a (long) weekend!

P.S. To kick off the weekend, Gracefullee Made now has an app available at the App Store. This has been in the works for me and I'm finally excited to be announcing it to you all! I couldn't thank you enough for following along here with me. And now... there's an app for that... ;)

All you have to do is type in "Gracefullee Made" at the App Store on your iPhone (I'm not sure if it works for Android yet!), and download it. Now you can keep up with my posts on-the-go!

NYFW Dreamin'...

{ here }

Sigh. Another season of NYFW and another year of not being able to attend.
Even though I'm not going, I've still been counting down the days till September 4th. I'm still excited to preview the livestreams of all my favorite designers in and out of classes those next few days.
Just because I'm not attending NYFW doesn't mean I can't make a list of what I would wear if I did attend, right?

I've compiled 4 looks that I would rock wear if I were attending NYFW this Thursday.
You can shop the items I posted in the links below!

Which set is your favorite?
one // two (oops - sold out! similar here) // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine //

Okay, I'm seriously swooning over this teal and orange combo. And yes, I'm the type of person who would totally change my nails just for this look.
I honestly couldn't decide between 6 and 7 so I added them both! Which shoe is your favorite?

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine //

When in doubt, wear black. Black is a classic. And with stripes in the picture, this look can do no wrong. I wear the Revlon's 'Fire and Ice' lipstick religiously and it's seriously one of my favorite shades of 'red'!
P.S. can you tell I'm a little o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with Kate Spade for this look?

one // two - splurge! vs. save here // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine //

If I had all of these, I. Would. Die.
I used to not be a fan of the color pink, but this dress is the bees knees. And I love the pops of cobalt blue to complete the look.

one // two // three - splurge! vs. save here + here // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten //

I was torn between the oxblood and teal hats (because of the matching lipstick + nailpolish) so I added them both! I'm still all over the distressed denim boyfriend jeans look. I paired it with a pair of chunky booties and a crisp, white wrap blouse.

What would you wear to NYFW?
Thanks for stopping by!

One thing I'll miss about this summer: summer sunsets.
I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of hot weather. If you've been following along on my blog, then you probably know that by now. But when the sun starts to drop this time of night, I can't help but step outside to gaze at the view. I threw on my new maxi dress that I bought in South Korea to take in the summer air for the last time. I've been on the hunt for a black maxi for the longest time, and couldn't walk away from this one when I saw it hanging in a boutique in Korea. The boutique owners practically begged me to take it when they saw me try it on - HA! It's the perfect length for someone my height and it's made of the comfiest chiffon material ever. Seriously, it's like walking around in pajamas.
Comfort and chic? Double win.

P.S. speaking of best investments, I've been literally living in these Karen Walkers. I don't regret making this purchase one bit. You can snag a pair here as well.

Wearing: dress: boutique in Korea (similar here + here + here) | clutch: vintage Chanel (similar here) love these here + here | heels: Charlotte Russe (old) similar here | sunglasses: Karen Walker | necklace: boutique in Korea (similar here + here) | lipstick: Revlon's 'Fire & Ice' | bracelet: Benevolent Jewels c/o (sold out) but shop the bracelet section here | renegade cluster ring: Stella & Dot c/o (sold out) | nailpolish: mani done in Korea, similar here |

AEO x Gracefullee Made

It's no surprise that Fall is my favorite season.
Around this time of the year, I'm just beyond ready to reach for my sweaters, boots, and scarves. I remember experiencing Fall for the first time in Chapel Hill last year, and it was one of the best feelings to walk on campus to watch the changing of the leaves and feel the breezy, cool weather. This sweater has to be one of my favorites. It's oversized and just the right amount of comfort to be paired with just about anything. #ohheyfallstaple

When American Eagle contacted me asking if I could style their straight jeans, I was more than thrilled. I've always been a sucker for AE denim. I've owned a lot of pairs in the past and even wore my boyfriend shorts religiously this summer. So if there was such a thing as a "Best Denim Award," AE would get my vote. Hands down.

Head on over to American Eagle's blog to see more deets on my look!

Wearing: jeans: American Eagle c/o | sweater: American Eagle c/o | sunglasses: American Eagle c/o | bracelet: American Eagle c/o (on SALE for $6!) | booties: American Eagle c/o | lipgloss: NYX 'Peach Cobbler' |
