A-Z Series: R is For

Happy Valentine's Day! I have really been feeling the love lately in the blogosphere, and I can't thank you enough-it truly means the world to me! 

Not going to lie, I did a little happy dance at my computer when Mackenzie agreed to participate in the A-Z Series. Design Darling is one of my all time favorite blogs, and words cannot describe my excitement for Design Darling {the boutique}. Mackenzie is constantly inspiring and not to mention shares fabulous finds at handsome prices (i.e. budget friendly). I could not be more excited to have her with us today.

Hi there! I'm Mackenzie from Design Darling and I'm excited to be guest posting on Carly's adorable blog A Simple Affair today. How fun is this series? My letter is "R" and here are some of my favorites...
Raspberries because they're delicious, healthy, and pretty. Rebecca Minkoff because I think I'd like to own every bag she's ever designed. Red and pink because, really, has there ever been a more festive color combo? Especially on Miss Emma Stone... Red lipstick because there's no easier way to feel instantly chic! Ruffles because I'm a girly girl through and through. Bonus points for backless! Redheads because I'm all in favor of embracing my natural color! And last but not least... Reading... of the blog and magazine variety, of course!

Thank you, Carly, for having me!

Fabulous picks Mackenzie-redheads has to be my favorite :)

Reading more often was one of my New Year's Resolutions, and I sadly have not acted upon that.  Good thing it's only February.  I will continue to work on that. 

I also adore my Ray-Bans and rag & bone skinny jeans [as seen here and here].

And last but most certainly not least, everything Rachel Zoe.  I'll take this dress with these wedges.  And can I meet you RZ?! Please and thank you.
