Accessories for Your Next Pool Day

July 25, 2014



When I found out the company I work for is throwing a boat party for its 3rd birthday, I was initially super excited. But then, panic set in. I mean, what would I wear?! Of course, I turned to my lifesavers (Nordstrom, Furbish Studio and Design Darling to name a few) and ended up with plenty of cute and stylish options for the boat party.


Happy weekend! Enjoy the sun!



Twist

July 23, 2014








Outfit: J.Crew dress
Accessories: Chanel bag, Kate Spade sandals
Jewelry: Anthropologie earrings (similar), La Suite 105 by Anne Sisteron love ring (similar), Black Market criss-cross ring (similar)

Oscar de la Renta once said, “Walk like you have three men walking behind you.” I don’t usually live out that quote in my own life, because I tend to trip, stumble and fall a lot. But thankfully, the twisted back on this dress does the sexy work for me. It also doesn’t hurt that emerald green is my boyfriend’s favorite color on me.

On another note, please tell me you’ve shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s.just.too.good.to.miss. This peacoat, this sweater and this necklace are all waiting patiently in my online shopping cart. I should pull the trigger, don’t you think?

Accessories: Rifle Paper Co. iPhone case, Tory Burch bag, Tory Burch sandals (similar)
Jewelry: Gold & Gray tassel bracelets, Anthropologie earrings (similar), La Suite 105 by Anne Sisteron love ring (similar), Black Market diamond crisscross ring (similar)

I’m always on the hunt for perfect summer maxi dresses, because the Texas heat takes no prisoners. I love the flirty ruffle on this one. It’s 20 bucks from Forever21- talk about a style steal, right? Plus, isn’t it cute paired with my new Rifle Paper Co. iPhone case? Seriously everything at Rifle Paper Co. is absolutely adorable. If you’re like me and change your iPhone case every week, you need to check it out!

Outfit: Forever 21 top, Sis Sis shorts (similar)
Accessories: Forever 21 sunnies, Rebecca Minkoff purse (similar), LOFT sandals

Remember when you were a little kid and the ice cream truck was the highlight of your day? I try to recreate that feeling often- and I do because Marble Slab Creamery is dangerously close to my apartment! My favorites are rocky road, strawberry and blue cotton candy (with sprinkles of course). What are yours?




You're My Sunflower

Accessories: Gap bag, Tory Burch sandals (similar)

I finally jumped on the shirtdress bandwagon. Isn’t this one from Banana Republic adorable? Whenever there’s a bow involved, I’m in business, but I also love that this dress is perfect for work or weekend wear. On another note, if you’re a Mary Poppins bag lady like me, then you need this bag. I’ve been known to carry everything from 17 lip glosses to several bars of chocolate in my purse on any given day. What can I say? As a former girl scout, I’m always prepared!


A Picnic in the Park

What are your weekend plans? I’m heading to White Rock Lake with a picnic basket (and mosquito repellant!) in tow.
