D’Orsary Pump

D'Orsary Pump

 

Leopard / Blue / Black

 

Pointed toe pumps made a comeback, now it’s time to spot light the d’ Orsay pump. Since it’s almost back to school time, lets define the d’ Orsay pump.  A d’Orsay style pump is a woman’s shoe in which the vamp of the shoe is cut away very close to the toe box, and the sides are cut away, revealing the arch of the foot. Aka… very sexy, and a definitely must have for fall!

Remember to keep your eye out for some big changes around here!! I’m getting excited!

Pool side Essentials

Poolside Essentials

 

Towel / Bikini / Hat / Flip Flops / Book / Water Carafe / Sunscreen

Happy Friday!!

I had one heck of a week and semi restricted from going anywhere this weekend so if I have to stay put (which drives me nuts) I plan on spending it pool side! I mean I might as well get a tan, right!?

I just started reading The Fault In Our Stars. I usually shy away from reading books that are already made into movies but I picked this up and didn’t want to put it down. I can’t wait to get the chance to pick it back up and I can bet you, by Monday I’ll be done!

June Purchases

June Purchases

Well folks it’s the sixth day of June and I’m sharing with you some of this month’s purchases.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

Yup, I might have a little bit of a problem…. But there were SUCH GOOD DEALS out there! [Just let me keep thinking that!]

Seriously though, here’s my justification… J.Crew Factory right now- everything is 50% off! And those shoes. Well I wanted the pink and tan pair but they were out of my size. Naturally I just chose a different color instead of walking away. (Which, by the way, I’m happy with my decision, black and white is probably more practical!) And that little pink dress… the print is adorable. It’s very Palm Beach which is perfect since I’m sure there will be a trip down to the sunshine state soon… Or, I’ll wear it to my sister’s graduation festivities! (Only fitting since she’s going to be a FL resident!) I also purchased this pastel leopardish print top from Collective Concepts that’s not on here, but I’m super excited about it! I can’t decide if I want to pair it with my tweed mini or my neon pencil skirt!Beauty products… you can never have too many! And here’s my secret- give yourself a sunless tan with this micro-mist spray and spend your money on more fun things. Seriously Neutrogena’s sunless spray is the bomb!

Oh, and HAPPY FRIDAY!!

Eyelet

Eyelet
 

Memorial Day has come and gone, so tis the season to wear white! Not that I actually follow that “rule” but it’s fun to step out in a brand spanking new white outfit! And shoot… a full white outfit is totally acceptable now too! And to top it all off… it’s Friday! Happy Friday!

I’m a fan when there’s a play on textures or layers so naturally these eyelet pieces I’m drawn to year after year. My bank account might not like this reoccurring obsession, but that’s ok because eyelet is such a summer staple! How pretty is this summer dress with the side cut outs, and can’t you just not wait to stroll on over to a summer picnic in this eyelet hat! I can’t decide which one I should get, I love them all!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Cobalt

Whew what a weekend! It feels good to wake up on a Monday and have a big thing checked off your to-do list! We spent the weekend at Wintergreen Ski Resort celebrating my sister’s bachelorette party! The weekend was filled with lots of champagne, girl talk, breweries, vineyards and of course fun! I’ll definitely share some pictures of the décor! Lots of pink!

Speaking of pink… I always say it’s my favorite color, but in reality I might be totally wrong. I love blue. Bright, dark, light, bold… all shades of blue! I’ve been flooding my wardrobe for awhile now with the shades of blue but out of all of them, cobalt might be my fave! It’s a great color for any season and bright enough to feel cheery, not dreary!

Cropping

My younger sister is 18 and let me tell you, her and all her friends wear crop tops a lot. And if we’re being real, then I’m going to just come out and say it… I’m jealous. I think they’re adorable and high schools girls are so damn skinny. Boo on them for not having alcohol calories added to their diet and fast metabolisms. But really, when I bought this I didn’t know when I would wear it, and I’ve worn it a couple times already! I wore it with this skirt for a friends birthday outing [seen here] and then here for a “classier” look if you count wearing a crop top as classy.

So I’m thinking this was a good purchase for a couple reasons a) I’ve worn it multiple times already b) it’s motiving me to hit the gym a little bit more and c) makes me feel like I’m cool still since I’m wearing what the high school girls are wearing. Heeeyyyyy!

I hope that everyone had a happy, safe and celebratory time ringing in the New Year and it was extended to the weekend! I know I had a great time celebrating with friends in a cozy cabin watching the snow fall.

I’ve thought a lot about my little quote from Friday about being happy and I am very optimistic about 2014… already there are so many wonderful events planned! I’m turning 25, I’m throwing my sister’s bachelorette weekend, my sister is marrying the love of her life, my other sister is graduating high school, and my brother is graduating from college! My parents are moving to start a new chapter in their life, I’m attending a huge conference for work in June, and it seems that my life just keeps getting better {and filled with more clothes}!

Cheers to 2014, I can’t wait to see whats in store!

I’ve said it before I know but I love J.Crew pants so much. The café capri in wool are my go-to when the weather starts dropping and I stare at them all summer long waiting anxiously to wear them again! They’re comfortable, I don’t have to get them hemmed like every other pant, they come in every color under the rainbow and right now a bunch are on sale! I’m eyeing the “dark cove”… what do you think?
