Squeaky Swings and Tall Grass


Iris Patent - $118
J.Crew at ShopStyle

My love affair with J.Crew continues for the summer.  I bought these sandals after seeing them in a window display about a month ago, and I just adore them!  The color.  The style.  They're perfect!

After studying the latest catalog, here are some other things I currently have my eye on.  Oh, and the lovely Sirah dress is back in stock so I had to order it (see it here)!!  All of these things would be perfect for a warm, lazy and relaxing vacation (sigh).

Mad World

Banana Republic hasn't done much for me lately.  I typically skip visiting the store and website and inevitably end up at J.Crew.  But, all of this may be changing...

You guys know how much I love the retro style that is done so well in AMC's Mad Men, right?  So I was pretty excited when I heard about Banana's Mad Men-inspired line coming out this Fall (see all of the looks here).  Even the men can get in on this action Don Draper-style.  Love!

Gleeful Fashion


I am completely obsessed with the dress Lea Michele wore in last night's season finale of GLEE (I'm less obsessed with the episode itself.  Total let down)!  The style and color were so perfect that I immediately went on a mission to find it.  I found several mentions of the dress and that scene in Central Park, but nothing about who designed it or how I could get my hands on one.  I finally discovered that the dress is ... VINTAGE! (Gasp!) So this means it will never be mine?  Say it isn't so!  It's a very sad turn of events, but I still just adore it!

Here are some possible alternatives:

How Cute is This?!

I'm pretty sure I need this bag ASAP.  But what color?  I think navy...

Is this thing on?

I'm back!  Just had a week-long vacation and I'm feeling refreshed and focused and ready to tackle this blog again.  Sorry for disappearing...

So, it's Spring!  How did that happen?  My wardrobe has been full of black for so long that I'm finally ready to add some actual color into my life.  Here are some of the items I've already acquired to accomplish this mission.  Just the beginning, I'm sure.

I knew I had to have this striped t-shirt as soon as I saw it in the May J.Crew catalog.  It is now mine and I plan to wear it a lot!

I heart this oversized clutch from Zara so much.  Mostly because it's big and bright and sassy (also comes in blue, green and yellow)!  I will be carrying it as much as possible in the coming months for a fun splash of color!

I've also become slightly obsessed with this controversial polish (to the controversy: can I get a big WHO CARES?!).  It's much brighter than my usual shades, but I sort of love it and am currently wearing it on my toes.

Happy Friday!








































This, my friends, is the story of my life. I've been told, more times than I can count, to smile.  I will and I do...when I have something to smile about.  You don't know what's going on in my life!  And besides, I think it's unnatural to be smiling all of the time.  The people who walk around with permagrin are the ones you need to watch out for, in my opinion.  So focus on yourself and leave me alone!  THIS IS JUST HOW MY FACE LOOKS!

Happy Friday!

klassic kate

How cute does Bryce Dallas Howard look in kate spade's new ad campaign?!  You know how I adore all things kate spade, but I am particularly obsessed with this look.  First of all, the dress is totally my style AND it's polka dots.  Plus, I love how they used the accessories for an unexpected pop of color with this otherwise neutral-colored dress.  Perfection!  Even though I'm pretty fair, so is Bryce.  I just might be able to pull it off.  Yes please!
