Gingham and Eyelet

First, I wanted to say thanks for your kind responses to my post on Wednesday. It always feels a little vulnerable to share something other than fashion around here. My takeaway is that we all struggle some with social media and comparison. We are all comparing to each other and all feeling like we don’t measure up when we do. I say let’s do our best to build each other up. I want to be a woman known for loving other…

70s Style & Social Media Struggles

July 29, 2015
shein jean skirt, lookbook off the should top, choies gladiator sandals 3

I’m loving the 70s style that is cropping up in fashion lately. Jean skirts, bell bottoms, platforms, off the shoulder tops – bring it on. I first showed you this jean skirt a couple weeks ago paired with stripes and heels (here). This skirt is only $12. I mean, you just cannot beat that. These a-line button front skirts are a big trend right now. I won’t lie, I want the white denim version and the suede version. Shein has…

Gingham Style

chicwish gingham dress, red reticule necklace, tassel purse 1

I love gingham. I’d been on the hunt for the right piece to add to my wardrobe when I saw this breezy midi dress from Chicwish. The lightweight fabric is perfect for these warm summer days, and I think it will be fun with ankle boots in the fall. I paired it with this beautiful statement necklace from the Red Reticule Collection (only $19). If you’re in the blogging world, that name may sound familiar. Bogi of the Red Reticule…

It’s been a while since I have done a post about Ditto’s Endless Eyewear Program, yet it gets regular airtime on practically every post. I decided it was about time I explained it in case you’re new around here or just wonder how I afford all the designer sunglasses I wear. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I don’t. With Ditto’s Endless Eyewear Program, you pay $19 per month (or $29 if you want prescription sunglasses) and get…

Striped Dress + Fringe Heels

July 22, 2015
LuLu*s striped dress, red coach bag, karen walker sunglasses 4

I’ve dubbed this the summer I made peace with the strapless bra. I’m sorry I just said that on the internet, but it’s the truth. I’ve always hated them but felt limited in my fashion choices by my hate. I feel like I have grown as a person. I mean, imagine the trends I would have missed out on in this season alone. Off the shoulder, I’m talking to you. Okay, in all seriousness, I realize there are far more…

I’m excited to be collaborating with Pleione today to share some of their awesome blouses with you. I don’t know about you, but blouses are the essential thing in my wardrobe. I am constantly on the lookout for a workhorse blouse that will look as good with a skirt or slacks at work as it will with jeans or shorts on the weekend. Pleione blouses are sold at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack and priced from $50-$100, but as you can see, are often…

Lace Up Bootie: An Obsessive Search

July 16, 2015
Jeffrey campbell cors bootie 1

  Let me tell you a shoe saga. But first a confession: sometimes when I decide I want something I get obsessive about it, like cannot stop until I have just the right thing obsessive. I saw these Miista lace up booties on an Instagram account I follow and knew they looked like the perfect shoe. A lace up bootie is wearable now, adds the perfect edge to any outfit, AND transitions perfectly to fall.  So I hunted for these shoes…

Today I’m sharing about a fun shopping experience with ifchic. Each day ifchic offers you the opportunity to collect $2 worth of coins three times per day, totaling $6.
