It’s Ladies Night!

i heart ronson striped sweater c/o JCPenney | Tommy Hilfiger black skinnies (Macy’s clearance) | Seychelles gypsy heels (I got mine at Marshall’s, but you can find them here!) | Thrifted belt and clutch | Drugstore sunnies | Betsey Johnson watch (50% off at Dillards) It  was ladies’ night. Last night, that is. And this is what I wore. I met up with girlfriends for a few (plus a few more) hours of drinks followed by dinner downtown. My philosophy about girls’ night out goes a little something like this: Put on something cute and comfy {saving the sexy get-ups…

Romper Room

  Madison cardigan (Belk clearance) | Ya Los Angeles romper (m.marie) | BCBG denim flats (Marshall’s) I’ve decided I need more rompers in my life. Besides that whole I-have-to-get-nearly-nude-to-use-the-bathroom thing, they’re the next best thing to dresses for easy one-piece outfits. Here are a few that I have on my wishlist for summer: Ruche Nautical Adventure Belted Romper, $32.99 Modcloth Farm Stand Fudge Romper, $39.99 Shopmamie Nantucket Romper, $56.00 Aerie Romper, $34.99

It’s since spun off into a book and a column in Lucky magazine, and I love everything about it. I’m not sure when I began to appreciate that my own mother is a stylish lady… She never wore “mom jeans” or sweats, and always looked…

Manic Monday!

American Eagle sweater | Levi’s cut-offs (Macy’s) | Dooney & Bourke tote (gift from Mom, 2009) | Lucky Brand flats (Marshall’s)   Today was one of those days when putting together a cute outfit was secondary to getting out of the door on time. After dragging myself out of bed just thirty minutes before I had to leave for work, I reached for the basics in my closet: classic cut-offs, a super soft sweater, flats, and a tote bag big enough to carry all the beginning-of-the-week essentials. Adding a few interesting details like a bold bag or a few pieces…

Small Town Date Night

little white dress from a few seasons ago (Macy’s) | INC cropped denim jacket | Dollhouse sandals (Ross, $16) | Dooney & Bourke Dillen II Satchel (Gift) Vanilla cream, Nutella, and marshmallow fluff, or in other words: heaven in a cup   Tonight I went out to dinner with the cutest guy in town, followed by a pit stop at a new ice cream place near our house. After standing under the menu board for what seemed like an eternity {I am the worst decision maker of all time, especially when it comes to life or death matters like dessert}…
