Good lawd, it’s a scorcher. I know I don’t have to tell you; half of the country is in the same sweaty boat. And has anyone noticed that the heat seems to be making everyone extra cranky? I’ve had more uncomfortable confrontations in the last two days than I’ve had in the last two years, and I’ve officially reached my limit of nastiness. Unfortunately it’s way too hot to hug it out, so maybe I’ll bake a batch of cupcakes and bring them with me everywhere to disarm volatile situations with overheated crabby people.

30 for 30: The Beginning of the End

We’re nearing the end of this little 3o for 30 adventure. I have just a few days left “in real life,” even though I didn’t get to post all of my outfits. Some were less exciting than others {like the Saturday I wore this top with these shorts and my denim flats} but every outfit counts, right? I think we all know the moral of the story by now.

I’ll post 30 for 30 looks for the rest of this week, and then it’s time to close the chapter on this remix. It’s been a good ride!

30 for 30: The Difference a Statement Can Make

Let’s be real: This Kenneth Jay Lane enamel statement necklace is the star of this outfit.

I wore this to a young professionals cocktail mixer last night, followed by sushi with a few old friends and a couple of new ones. I can’t count the number of “oh, that necklace is amazing,” and “where did you get it?!” compliments I received in just a few hours. I pointed them all in the direction of my friend, Sarah.

Remember Anne of Wobisobi? She’s one of my real-life BFFs, and Sarah is her equally talented and stylish sister. A few years ago, Sarah started a business called I’m Over It — an online jewelry leasing company that leases designer jewelry from high-end brands like Kenneth Jay Lane, Gerard Yosca, Carolee LUX  & ABS by Allen Schwartz for 10% of the retail price. And people are buzzing, especially brides that want special jewels for their big day, but don’t have the cash to drop on luxurious pieces they’ll likely only wear once. {Talk about big style on a budget!}

Head on over to I’m Over It, and browse through the beautiful selection. Tell Sarah I sent you ;-)
