Black Scallop Mini Dress

shein-black-scallop-mini-dress-7-of-12

Surprise! By now I’m sure you’ve noticed that A Sparkle Factor got a little bit of a makeover! I am so excited for you to finally get to see what I’ve been working on and why I’ve been so quiet the past couple of weeks! I had to take a little break from posting so I could sort out some backend stuff… ahh the glamorous side of blogging, right? But never fear, we are back on track and on schedule.…

Tory Burch York Buckle Tote Review

free-people-blue-floral-dress-11

While I’m sort of in denial that it is actually mid-September, in the spirit of Fall and Back-to-School I thought I’d review my go-to day bag, the Tory Burch York Buckle Tote. I’ve been carrying it around for awhile and find myself reaching for it every time I need to cart my laptop or DSLR around. To that end, I think it makes a GREAT work or school bag. Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. Construction/Material The York Buckle Tote…

Never Be Like The Rest of Them, Darling

choies-chambray-off-the-shoulder-top-old-navy-harper-pant-7-of-10

Chambray is one of my favorite fabrics. It’s just so versatile! You can pair it with just about anything and it looks pulled together and on-trend. I absolutely love this top because it takes chambray in an unexpected direction and dresses it up a bit. Usually, when you think of a chambray top, you think of a button down, right?! And it doesn’t hurt that the top is only $16.90! I wanted to put together a look that was a bit…

  Hope you babes had a great weekend! I spent mine pretty much working… I’ve been working on something for the blog that I’ll share soon! I’m so excited for you to see it, I think you’ll really love it. In the meantime, I’ve been pretty much working 16 hours a day and driving myself insane. I realized last week that I’m 99% sure my desk chair is giving me LEG VEINS, so I’m on the hunt for a new…

Off The Shoulder Floral Midi Dress + Getting Inspired

Happy Friday! Raise your hand if you’re as excited for the weekend as I am! Another week down, am I right? After a few weeks of sharing my travels with ya’ll, I was pretty excited to get back into the swing of things and kick off my summer-to-fall transitional content. As much as I enjoyed Europe and love the content I was able to create as a result of our trip, I was kind of excited to get back to…

Leather + Lace: Easy Fall Transition Outfit

  Us gals in the warmer climates have it ROUGH when it comes to dressing for the summer-to-fall transition. (Or, let’s honest, dressing for “fall” in general.) I feel like I spend 55% of my life trying to dress myself to match the seasons when it’s actually 99 degrees out. The struggle… is real. BUT I LOVE FALL FASHION. I really, really do. Cozy sweaters, blanket scarves, riding boots… they’re probably my favorite pieces and every year, I’m so excited to…

A Day in Seville

a-day-in-seville-2-of-7

Happy Labor Day! I hope you’re having a great day off and enjoying time with fam and friends! It worked out perfectly that my last and final Europe post goes live today, because I was wearing red, white, and blue on our last day in Seville. (Maybe I was missing home?) I’m going to be 100% honest with you. When I dreamed of going to Seville, this was NOT the outfit I envisioned. I pictured myself in something super romantic…

Happy Friday and… happy September! The summer has officially slipped away from us, hasn’t it? I feel like it was just yesterday I was blowing up my swan float for the first time… and here we are, at the unofficial beginning of Fall, Labor Day weekend! I don’t know about for you girls, but for ME it feels near impossible to consider it Fall. It’s still basically 90 degrees at all times here in Miami. But, c’est la vie. I’m…

A Day in Cinque Terre

a-day-in-cinque-terre-1-of-1

Visiting Cinque Terre was probably the thing I was looking forward to the most on our trip. I had pored over photos of the stunningly beautiful coastal towns seemingly untouched by time for hours. I felt pretty intimidated about visiting and navigating the towns, so when we were planning our day trip, we made the decision to book a day trip through Viator. That ended up being a MOSTLY good decision, but there were definitely some cons as well. On…

A Day in Venice

hm-stripe-ruffle-top-free-people-denim-lace-up-skirt-7-of-9

After we settled in Florence, we used it as our base for day trips around Italy. Namely, we hit Cinque Terre and Venice! Truthfully, we didn’t feel like we 100% took advantage of our time in Venice. While there’s not necessarily TONS to do, it’s just so beautiful and there are so many things to see. I especially had wanted to venture to Burano to see the beautiful, colorful houses. There was definitely not enough time for that! We got majorly…
