I received this beautiful below the knee dress from Surfdome yesterday and I could not wait to wear it. I actually wore it last night on a movie date and again today. I am also tossing it into my cruise suit case.

By the way, go see Gravity.  If you love Sandra Bullock already, you will love her even more after seeing this movie. I was so stressed out during the entire thing, in a good way though. You know the movie was well done when you become personally invested.




I am actually wearing this dress backwards. I did not want the beautiful detail to be hidden behind my hair and jacket.!

These boots will become my Fall staple. I don’t care how tight they are on my feet. I will either find a way to stretch them out, or figure out how to shrink my feet. Either way, it’s worth it.

Now, it’s time to finalize all my packing for my cruise! I’ve made about 3 lists and checked them all off, but somehow I am still not convinced that I am not missing anything. Do you have any last minute packing tips?

This is a re-creation of the outfit I wore to have dinner with the Crossroads Style Council ladies last week. It was so great to meet so many wonderful bloggers that I have been following for so long. They could not have been any nicer, and so beautiful! I learned that I must be a horrible blogger because I did not take one single photo during the dinner. I suppose that means that we all just need to meet up again! What do you say, ladies?

Be sure to check out all the wonderful ladies from the Crossroads Style Council; each with their own unique personal style and voice!

Polka dots with polka dots. Because, why not?

Remember my Chicastic giveaway a couple of weeks ago? Of course you do because you all entered as many times as possible as to not miss out on the cutest gift basket ever. This wallet was gifted to me by Chicastic and I have barely put it down. Sometimes carrying a purse around all day is such a pain, so I’ve been using this statement wallet instead!

What goes better with polka dots than polka dots?




Do I need to mention how much I love this blazer? The color plus the oversized fit is perfection for a transition into fall.



We met a couple furry friends!



And now I am off to spin class. Because I hate myself.

I think all style bloggers should take a hiatus during the summer. It’s hot, sometimes humid and sticky, and let’s face it, we end up wearing the same damn thing over and over. At least this is all true for me. The heat makes me lazy. And I only own so many pairs of shorts and dresses. 

Hm, maybe the problem is that I need to go shopping. My self imposed shopping ban gets in the way of that. I have been “shopping” in my close lately, though, not for this outfit. This outfit is basically a copy of the last outfit I posed, except for a different shirt. But, it is a true picture of how I dress in the summer. I live in the same shorts for weeks at a time, eventually I will find a cute little mini dress that keeps me cool in the sun’s blaze, and I will finally find my way to a skirt or two before fall comes.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am visiting home and my mom was volunteered to take my outfit photos. I think Ugly Mug has some competition!

I desperately wish I had a flower crown to top this off with. I think it would go perfectly with the top. I guess it gives me a reason to wear the top again soon!



So, wedding planning, huh? It sucks. I am normally a Type A control freak, but I cannot seem to wrap my head around how to start this. I am hoping that finding the perfect venue will be the hardest part and then I can start really plowing through the planning. It doesn’t help that I am extremely picky (see previous statement of being a Type A control freak), but should anyone expect anything different from a bride planing her wedding?

I could not stop laughing watching my mom take my photos. She was just too cute. I took a couple of her, but I have been forebidden to post them!



 The daisies get taller and taller each year in my backyard!

There are several reasons why I love Sundays. One of the biggest reasons are weekly flea markets. I cannot think of a better way to spend a hangover Sunday than perusing what is basically a giant thrift store. I love the handmade treasures, the antiques that you only thought exsisted on eBay, and of course, the clothing. Oh the clothing. It is hipster heaven; I have never seen so many perfectly frayed, high waist denim shorts in my life. And I bought a pair for $15. A pair identical to those sold in stores for upwords of $50.

If you are looking for anything for your home, I recommend checking out your local flea market first. Even if you don’t think your asthetic includes rustic, paint chipped night stand, just wait until you ultimately find the perfect, unique piece. We got a night stand this weekend and I am excited to find more treasures for our new home together.

Can I get a high five for finding this gem of a Free People dress at Crossroads? Sure it has loose threading and the bottom gets caught on the zippers of my boots, but its Free People and so worth it. It is probably more of a winter dress, but I had to wear soon after I found it. I am hoping to squeeze a couple more wears out of it before I would be getting heat stroke walking around in the Los Angeles heat. Also, I cannot say that I won’t rule out cranking up the air conditioner and just wearing it at home.

Also, new bag!






Ugly Mug was so impressed by the Melrose Trading Post that he wants to go every Sunday. That is a Sunday routine that I can definitely get behind. I would also like to take up the practice of brunching. Yes, it is just a fancy way to say that you slept in and have decided to eat a hearty breakfast at lunch time, but it is just the right amount of pretentious that I could use in my life.

Do you have weekend traditions?





If you are in LA, be sure to check out the Melrose Trading Post!
