This and That

My outfit today was really low maintenance. I left the house in a hurry and threw something together last minute. Don't you just love those mornings? I busted out little short booties. I really don't currrrr that it's still in the 80's. Fall4Life.
I got some new baubles from Brave Designs. Obsessed with the chunky necklaces that will go perfectly with my chunky necklace collection.
Wanting a hair update? I don't have one. My hair is currently a hot mess, but I just don't know what I want to do next. The "bang clip" is out in full force. Seriously, don't ever let me get bangs again- hold me to it, okay?
The very sweet Katherine from Feather Factor interviewed me for her blog! Check it out if you're bored or just want to be nosy.

Fall Wish List

Hello kittens. I thought I'd share my fall wishlist with you. Or my parents. Or my husband. You know, in case they are wondering what to get me for my birthday in ... 2.5 months.

1) Miu Miu Glitter Booties- I would totally wear these casually or with tights and a dress.

2) Kate Spade Cape- I love this retro cape.
3) Tibi Lace Print Dress- I think this is a really pretty print.
4) Loeffler Randall Bootie- Love this bootie with tights or over leggings
5) Loeffler Randall Wallaby Bootie- I actually tried these on last week and they are surprisingly comfortable!
6) DvF Dress- I will be hawking this one to go on sale.
7) Milly Mongolian Vest- ditto on the hawking to go on sale.
What's on your fall wish list?

1 Pant, 3 Ways

As if you all haven't noticed yet, I wear my J.Crew Minnie Pants a lot.

Here is a look at them worn 3 different ways!

To church with a sweater cardigan, belt, and snakeskin pumps:
Out to eat with a flutter sleeve top, big earrings, and leopard flats:
To work with a white button up, long necklace, and revas:I just love this J.Crew pant. I have them in black and gray as well, but I wish J.Crew would do some other colors!

Slicked Back

Tonight I wore my hair slicked back in a pony-tail (aka pone tail). My bangs are on my nerves. Don't ever let me get bangs again, k? I wore a white Elizabeth and James top, J.Crew Red Minnie Pants and J.Crew's new Darby loafer, which is surprisingly really comfortable. My love/hate relationship with J.Crew continues ...

Happy Friday

Oh lookie! I've changed up my "outfit corner" ... LOL. Does this desk look weird here?

Last night I wore some things that I've worn in the past month. I had to throw an outfit together really quickly, so this is what I came up with. I wore my white Tibi Blouse, Old Navy vest, Pink J.Brand 811's and my new Loeffler Randall snake pumps that I scored for 75% off at Village Tailor!

Have a good weekend!

Booties & Bows

Tibi has new booties out that are super-cute. Almost every pair has a little bow adornment.

I particularly like this pair:
And this new arrival fur. I need. You can never have too many furs.
Oh Tibi, you will always be my favorite!

Floral For Life

I love a good floral print! Tonight I wore a new Anthropologie silk floral open cardigan with a white tee, black pants and yellow J.Crew Valentina Heels. I wore my Brave necklace and carried the damier Speedy 35.

Time Flies

Last night my bff and former college dorm roomy texted me this picture of our old dorm looking exactly the same as it did eight years ago when we moved in.
Oh, the memories! How fun it was to be a carefree college freshman! I can remember our dorm like it was yesterday. It was the size of a closet, but we made it cute!

When I was adding up how long it had been since we moved in as freshman I nearly had to check myself that it really was eight years ago. Where does the time go?? I mean, EIGHT years? Really?
{Oh yes, that's a coach bucket hat. Remember when those were cool?}{80's Frat Party}{Red lipstick overload. And the choker!!!!}
Regardless, this time every year when kiddos are moving in to the dorms and getting excited for college, I can't help but get giddy in remembering my college days. They were some good ones!

The Grocery Store

Warning: This is a really random post about the grocery store making no sense.

We normally shop at Super Target for our groceries. Over the past three months, my husband has been on a paleo-ish diet in which he eats no refined sugars, carbs, gluten, etc. (he's lost 30 lbs!). We've been getting all of our meat at Whole Foods. I am what you would call a "flexitarian", aka I don't eat meat a lot, but I will occasionally eat it. I have tried to be a vegetarian so many times and always end up eating just a little bit of ground turkey or just a little bit of turkey deli meat. I will spare you my thoughts on meat, but basically I get really grossed out by meat and think it's nasty. I am a germaphobe and can't get over all of the salmonella scares and tainted meat stories.

Anywho, since my husband has been on a health kick for a few months, naturally, I have started eating better too. I am not exactly the picture of a great diet, but I am trying. I have majorly cut back on the cupcakes and pies that I used to eat on a daily basis. I have tried to find alternative healthy snacks that don't involve 100% sugar. I also don't really eat bread anymore since my husband has cut it out. It's funny how when you stop buying something at the grocery store you really don't even miss it when it's gone.
One of my favorite snacks that I have discovered are these all natural applesauce on-the-go packets. I like the apple banana flavor. It reminds me of baby food. I went through a weird phase in college where my roommates and I would eat baby food as a snack. Needless to say, I really liked it and still occasionally buy baby food from the grocery store *noshame*.
If you've followed my blog for a while, you will know that I take pre-natal vitamins for hair growth. The particular kind of pre-natal gummy vites that I take are currently on sale at Target.

Also, I blew it out in the Glade section of Target. You know I am all about the seasonal scents, especially the fall ones. I got the "falling leaves and spices" (which definitely doesn't smell like falling leaves and spices), and my favorite Glade candle scent for fall, Cashmere Woods.
Okay, so you all now of my love for our Tassimo. Well I am thinking about getting a Keurig now because Target literally has a whole wall of Keurig selections. The Tassimo gets ONE shelf at Target. Yes, I know that BBB carries way more Tassimo items, but it's just inconvenient to go there when I already go to Target every week.
That was my really random post on the grocery store. Feel free to comment, or not.

Friday Mixed Bag

- I am SUCH a sucker for those fragrance inserts that Neiman Marcus puts in their lookbooks. I got one last week and sniffed the Hermes Jardin Sur Le Toit and just had to order! The scent is very reminiscent of one of my favorite Fragonard purchases from my time in Paris.
- I got a new desk this week from our neighborhood email group. I love the shabby chic feel it gives. And yes, that's my Erin Condren planner on my desk. Who am I? I was persuaded by the power of twitter to purchase one and I actually really like it. I won't talk about it anymore though, I promise.
- So even though I popped off at J.Crew yesterday, I succumbed to the stupid red dress and ordered a size that was "in stock" instead of back ordered. We'll see if it actually fits.

- How do you all feel about the leopard smoker loafer (or whatever they're called) trend? I wasn't sure at first, but I like them with ankle pants. I saw them on J. Crew's new arrivals and I am thinking about ordering this pair. I wouldn't wear them with those pants though, woof.

Dear J.Crew

Just when I thought we were friends again, you "dun went and ticked me off"!!!

Okay, so I get this lovely email this morning about J.Crew New Arrivals. I am like, "yeaaaaaah", pop this sucker open!
I open to see a dress I was immediately drawn to; a simple red sleeved dress. Oh the possibilities! I could wear it with a chunky necklace, tights, boots, you name it!
I click my size and what do I see? Expected ship date: 12.12.11 ... uhhh, say what? How is it a new arrival if the ship date is FOUR months away?
My friend Mojito Maven ordered a pair of the pink suede Mona pumps and she got a shipping notification, only for J.Crew to call her and say that they were backordered until December.

And let's not forget this hot little pair of pumps that I want, but will not wait four months for:
What gives "the crew"? I think you need to get your online stock situation figured out!

I will, however, cut you some slack. Some of the new arrivals are pretty cute!
Until Next Time,


PS- I want to take my shoe off and chuck it at you. I will cut you. Rude.

A Walk on the Wild Side

Tonight I wore some maroon J Brand Jeans, a Leopard blouse purchased from Gilt, Prada Heels, and my Chanel Jumbo.

For Sale

Check out the Yard Sale blog for a pair of sunglasses!

The Perfect Heel

I have found the perfect little heel for work! These are the J.Crew Valentina Heels and I snatched up the Weathered Rose and the Spicy Gold when J.Crew offered 30% off of new fall arrivals. Do we like both colors? I am trying them on over a towel so that I don't scratch up the bottoms. I haven't decided if I want to keep both colors or not.
I really want the leopard print, but alas, they are on back order until the end of September. Me thinks not. It always seems like J.Crew stuff is on back order online. What gives?
