I recently alluded to my current shopping fast, a practice that’s been great for my wallet and not-so-much for my style inspiration. There’s something about getting a new dress or blouse that just seems to motivate you to dress better. However, I’d forgotten about this little number I purchased on sale last fall—its pleated skirt, billowy sleeves and bright, jubilant print were just the pick-me-up my wardrobe needed.
Is anyone else laughing at my wannabe model pose?
Tortoise shell belt buckle x tortoise shell watch = just sayin’.
I’ve been on a semi-spending freeze as of late, but I found a few good bargains over the weekend: some pretty, patterned candles on clearance at Target (for when food calls for candlelight but not additional scent), gold mirrored browline sunnies (also from Tarjay), a donkey shot glass made of pewter and antique alabaster bookends (both sourced from Scout), perfect in all their geometric wonderfulness. But, as usual, the best things in life are free—like the periwinkle blue of Kentucky skies at dusk and sharing special days with special people.

With the early onset of warm weather has come preemptive shorts wearing and other mildly inappropriate attire choices for this time of year. But we can’t help it, says I, we’re just so darn excited! My anticipation of sunshiney warmth and blooming flowers was doubled during my attendance at Anthropologie’s spring fashion show. Becki, Sarah and I enjoyed our fair share of mini cupcakes while exploring the much-beloved store and watching an in-house styled fashion show. As usual, I saw things I loved but won’t be able to afford in two lifetimes, but it’s always fun to see how Anthro blends equal parts uber feminine and delightfully quirky in such perfect ratios. Now if only I could get my hands on $400 for that gorgeous dress I spotted…
Adore these for spring/summer—they combine the best of everything: snakeskin, tassels, wood, and a platform that makes a 5” heel easy to walk in!
Gorgeous coasters for $8/ea. Maybe the one thing I can afford…
Each of these ladies looked awesome. The woman on the far left was killing it with some major pattern mixing (seahorse printed blazer, plaid pants, leopard print bag, purple patent leather Tory Burch flats), and are those alligator skin Hunter boots on the gal in the middle? As to the woman on the right, you know I can never hate on big, nerdy glasses combined with a high bun :P
Easy. Denim/chambray shirt, printed skirt and some fun heels. This look never fails.
Printed pants are the must-have trend this season. Floral too much? Opt for polka dots with a basic t, fun scarf or statement necklace and wedges.
Sarah’s fav: a pretty, printed frock with beautiful back detailing.
Don’t joke around with me about jumpsuits—you already know they’re as good as crack to me. And one in chambray? GAHHH I’m in heaven.
An adorable, simple outfit jazzed up with a quirky, bedazzled barrette.
This skirt was ravishing. A subtle peplum in a gorgeous red-orange hue provided a perfect silhouette with the addition of a simple tank and statement necklace.
I’m in love with the high-low/mullet/fishtail hemline. I think it’s both flattering and whimsical, and even if it’s a passing trend, you can always have it hemmed to one length in a season or two.
Last spring I had an “indoor yard sale” in an effort to raise funds for my summer trip to Israel while simultaneously purging my closet. This year, Becki and I are joining forces in an effort to do some spring cleaning in the way of paring down our wardrobes and making room for the new. We’ll be selling lightly (and perhaps never) worn clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, and plenty of vintage—we hope you’ll join us at my studio for finger food, mimosas and a little thrifty shopping!
For obvious reasons, I have not included my address here; rather, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’d be happy to send you directions! See y’all soon! :)
