Chambray All Day
I'm in love with chambray shirts and have been for years. When I'm in a rush to get to work or want to throw on something casual but still cute on the weekend they're one of the first things that I reach for. You can dress it up with a bright, fitte ...

Why You Need City Sandals
Have you heard of city sandals yet? If you haven't, you're in the right place! I first discovered them a few summers ago when I had a pair of sandals I wore until they literally broke. To my dismay, they were no longer carried and I spent my days ...

Sunshine In The South
It's no secret that as a Southern girl I absolutely love the sunshine. By the end of February I'm ready for some Vitamin D and usually plan a trip early in the year to make sure that happens if the New York weather isn't cooperating with us. In ...

Work to Weekend Pieces
This past Friday night was my kind of night – it was 80 degrees outside when I got off of work and we had a double date lined up with one of our favorite couples at a restaurant we had all never been to. I was ecstatic to throw on something easy bu ...

Swimsuit Style Guide
I've been anxiously awaiting this announcement for a few months now and am SO excited to share that I'm in the May issue of People StyleWatch magazine! It's probably one of the most exciting things I've ever had a chance to be a part of and was so th ...

Wide Leg Pants
On most days you will find me in a pair of skinny jeans, a top and some kind of heels. I probably own more pairs of skinny jeans and pants than anything else in my closet by a long shot. That being said, I'm never one to shy away from trying somethin ...

Everyday Style On A Budget
This year I promised myself that I would get it together again – financially, organizationally, being healthier, the works. Back when I first graduated college I had big ideas about where I would be by the time I was 30 (not quite there yet, but ge ...

City Sneakers
One thing I've learned about living in New York is that once you see something get popular, you start seeing it everywhere. I don't think I go a day without seeing Stan Smith's on a super fashionable girl heading to work. The subway can be a bleak p ...

What To Wear For A Casual Easter
While Christmas, Thanksgiving, July 4th and my birthday are at the top of my favorite holiday list, Easter has a particularly special place in my heart. Growing up we spent almost every holiday with our neighborhood "family" – a group of 10-15 fami ...

White Out
White shoes, bags & clothes get a really bad rap. "They get dirty so easily", "they're not practical", "you can only wear them in certain seasons".. the list of grievances goes on and on. I've never been one to let a bunch of chatter change my mind a ...

Wink Sweater
Winter for me might as well be called “the season for sweaters and nothing else”. I finally broke down and invested in some this year, but tend to gravitate towards the same colors and style over and over again. Fridays are usually really casual ...

Trenchcoat Season
This week was one of the nicest weeks in New York since last Fall with record setting highs and plenty of sunshine. I was so happy to ditch my heavier coats for something lighter. I snagged this trenchcoat in a petite size after a lot of stalking and ...

Making The Transition To Spring
I had almost made it through all of winter without wearing this duster coat that I had picked up last year. Too light to wear in the thick of winter and too heavy to wear when spring actually starts peeping it's head out there's only a small window w ...

Wishing For Spring
In anticipation of the sun coming out and the rise in temperatures, I’ve started looking ahead to some of the things I know I have coming up and need dresses for. I lost myself on the Shopbop site one night and fell in love with this little blue do ...

Labor Day Ready
It seems like it hasn't been that long since my stay-cation, but I am so excited and ready for a long weekend. Labor Day is one that has grown on me a lot over time. Although it marks the end of summer, it also means that there are a lot of fun thin ...

For Every Occasion: Cocktail Parties
Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved getting dressed up. I definitely had my tomboy phase (didn't we all), but always had an especially strong affinity for dresses in particular. Short, long, printed or solid.. my mom never really had to try ...

For Every Occasion: Brunch Ready
Remember that beautiful pleated skirt from Tuesday? It's back! One of the reasons why I love a statement skirt like this is that it's easy to keep wearing in different ways. I styled it previously for showers or a slightly more dressy occasion, but a ...

For Every Occasion: Daytime Weddings
My second favorite season of the year behind summer just might be wedding season! We're on the tail end of a ton of friends getting married going into the Fall and it always poses the age old question – what do I wear? I like to change it up eve ...

For Every Occasion: Showers
The transition period between fall and summer is one of the best times of year for a lot of reasons. There's so much to look forward to – cozy fires, football season (I'm from the south), new soups, and all of those knits & layers! Befor ...

For Every Occasion: Weekend Casual
Happy Monday! I couldn't be more excited to be kicking off a special series with one of my favorite brands, Anthropologie! I've always believed that getting dressed and shopping should be a fun and exciting experience for everyone. Personally, it bri ...

Pack A Punch
When it comes to dresses, I have a weakness for the basics. I have far too many LBD's and LWD's and the trouble is I have a really hard time veering off of that course. A few weeks ago I was back home in Texas and stopped into Nordstrom with my mo ...

Showing Some Skin
I grew up being outside a lot – playing soccer my whole life meant that my skin was usually getting beaten up all year around in Texas and especially during the summer. After 3 years in Chicago, I thought my skin had forgotten how to soak up the su ...

Light & Airy
The past week being off of work was such a nice refresher not only for me mentally, but it was kind of amazing not "having" to get dressed everyday. Wednesday night we were going out for dinner and so I finally pulled myself together and put makeup ...

Porcelain Print
There are a few prints that no matter where I see them, I just can’t resist. For some reason this blue & white porcelain print has always been a favorite. Put it on a dress, plates or décor .. it doesn’t matter, I’ll probably want to buy i ...

Southwest State Of Mind
I shared 9 things about me in a recent post and then realized that I had left one thing out that most people who have stumbled on my blog don't know about me – I actually played soccer in college (and my whole life for that matter). Truth be to ...

Keeping It Simple
Last month when I was in Chicago for a little visit, I had the pleasure of joining some of my other favorite bloggers for a dinner welcoming Kendra Scott to the Windy City. We were celebrating the launch of the Fall collection, Mystic Bazaar, (which ...

Feels Like Summer
While I love getting dressed up more than most, I find myself dressing extra casual on the weekends. I'll throw on a day dress here and there when I have to, but if I'm just hanging out I'll pull out an easy pair of cutoff shorts and a top. I have ...

Feeling Parisian
Despite some rain here and there, the weather has been pretty consistent here now that summer is in full swing. I always thought that the mid-80's were the perfect temperature – that is, until I moved to the city. The concrete jungle can make that ...

Repeat Offender
I admit when it comes to certain things, I'm a total creature of habit. If I'm in town I try to keep to the same Saturday morning routine for the most part and find myself with plans on the same nights during the week. When it comes to shopping it's ...
