AFTERNOON (ICED)TEA

Dress/Earrings/Bag(old): Target, Shoes(old): Gianni Bini, Necklace/Ring: JCrew, Knuckle Ring: FromBrooklynWLove Anyone who knows me is aware that I prefer tea over coffee. There is really nothing better to keep you cool on a hot summer afternoon than a big ol’ glass of iced tea. And nothing goes with a glass of iced tea like a whole heap […]

BIKER CHICKS

ON KAYNA Jacket(old): Asos, Dress(old): GAP, Boots/Tights: Target ON ESTES Boots/Tights/Shirt: Target, Jacket/Skirt(similar): H&M It has been a while since the girls have made an appearance on the blog. So shooting family portraits in the woods was the perfect excuse to post some pictures (twice the girls in one post easily translates to twice the photos, so sorry about […]

MEOW

Jacket(old): ASOS, Dress: Target, Bag: VJStyle, Shoes: Nordstrom, Earrings: Helzberg Diamonds I am not a cat person, but there is something about a good feline print that I just can’t resist. It is the perfect no brainer print combining all of my favorite non-colors. Thank you, Magic Tunnel, for being my ideal backdrop once again!

BIRTHDAY GIRL

Shoes: Prabal Gurung for Target, Earrings: Claires, Dress(borrowed from a friend): Armani Exchange It is my birthday! I try in vain to stretch this day into a “birthday week” by guilt tripping my husband into tickling my back, or using it as an excuse to get out of house work; but generally my birthday celebrations are […]

BAZAAR

 Skirt: eShakti, Shoes/Bra(worn as shirt): Target, Earrings: Forever21, Bangles(old): Express, Ring: Stella&Dot, Knuckle Ring: FromBrooklynWLove, Necklace: Shane Company, Hat: JCrew If you have been reading the blog for a while (like since the beginning), then you know that my son has some very specific opinions about my outfits. Today he told me that my look was “bizarre”. Gee, thanks man! […]

A NIGHT OUT

cc Necklace: JCrew, Dress(borrowed from a friend): Calvin Klein, Shoes/Earrings: Target, Bag: VJStyle I don’t get out much. So when I have the opportunity to dance the night away AND dress up (like when attending an old friend’s wedding), well, I’m one happy girl! Now if only I could get my husband to dance with me…. P.S. Despite […]

GYPSY

 Jeans: American Eagle,  Jacket: Vintage, Scarf (no longer available online): H&M, Bag: Michael Kors via TJMaxx, Silver Ring: Stella&Dot, Shirt: JCP, Earrings: Forever21, Booties: Target This bohemian scarf (recognize it from my Christmas wish list?), coupled with the big hoop earrings makes me feel like a Gypsy. Not the hick kind of Gypsy who runs wild on the […]

FRINGE BENEFITS

Skirt: JCrew, Shoes/Vest/Shirt: Target, Necklace/Gold Ring: Stella&Dot, Knuckle Ring: FromBrooklynWLove, Bracelet: Poshlocket, Phone Case: JCrew Factory I usually shy away from wearing “wife beater” style tank tops. Mostly because I think they can make me look a little too masculine (short hair problems if you will…). There is no mistaking me for a man though when worn with a […]

A LOT ON MY PLATE

All right ya’ll, I wouldn’t usually post about something other than fashion, but I figured now is as good a time as any to clue you in on why I have been so MIA lately. Not many of you know, but I grew up working in my parent’s cookie and coffee shop, where I started […]

NEW WEEK

 Skirt/Shirt/Ring(can’t seem to find it online): JCrew, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Bag: VJStyle, Earrings/Shoes: Target, Knuckle Ring: FromBrooklynWLove Back to the grind today… I have fallen off the diet wagon, and need to put effort into perfecting a new workout routine now that school is out. What are your plans for the week? Happy Monday everyone!
