must have

My olive military vest is in full rotation. It’s the perfect transition piece, light enough to add layers, but not warmth, and lays nicely over dresses, button downs and blouses. Once it gets a little cooler, it will be perfect for over sweaters as well. If you don’t have one, you should get one, I think you will be surprised at how much you wear it.

Shop the Collection: 

well painted

True story; I can paint my nails {on both hands}, rarely getting polish on my skin. I picked up this talent from my mom while watching her paint her nails growing up.  I’m able to save on manicures, change my polish often, and have created a nice little color collection to choose from. Marc Jacobs recently launched his beauty line and the nail polish is getting rave reviews. It has a very high-shine {which I LOVE} and is long-lasting, I can’t wait to pick up a few of these colors!

Shop the Shades: 

busy, busy and another pair of booties

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind, from an extremely busy agenda at work, the bf heading off to Germany, a long football weekend in Austin, topped off with a Mumford and Sons concert last night… I am more than ready for a little normalcy around here, as well as, more time to devote to the blog.

As I was rushing out the door to get to Austin last Thursday I nearly tripped over a delivery at my back door, my newest pair of booties had arrived. I saw the pricier version at Anthropologie a while back, and when I saw the Target version, I ordered right away. The Target ones are not leather, but they still achieve the woven bootie look.

like list

With the arrival of each new season I create a “like list” in my phone to jot down items I love or need to replace. Right now a pair of Nike’s, an oversized neutral scarf and a cross-body purse are on the list. I tend to gravitate to larger bags, and could use to add a smaller bag to my collection.

something missing

A piece that remains missing from my closet is a classic trench. I love the look, but have never gotten around to purchasing one, and the weather here doesn’t call for this type of piece too often. The fall looks for Zara are amazing and this trench is calling my name. I love the shape and the details, and the fact it looks, oh so similar, to a fancy Burberry one, that I’ve loved forever.
