colored soles

Suede oxfords are a very versatile shoe to get you from this in between time of year to those chilly winter months that are ahead of us. I find myself pairing with skirts and jeans, bold crop pants and even look forward to tights, when the temperatures start to drop! I love the color soles on these, a nice pop of color to such a basic shoe!

ready to wear {Spring 2013}

Every time fashion week rolls around, I find myself collecting inspiration for the seasons to come. For Spring 2013, it’s all about metallics, the flowing frocks, the light mentions of leather and pastels. Also crop tops everywhere, the models pull it off nicely, but not so sure that will be my look, come spring! I consistently check wwd.com for the latest show updates, and when I can, I livestream a show or two. Here are the looks I am loving so far. Follow me on pinterest {here} for daily updates of my Spring 2013 picks!

friday finds {on the wall}

From nursery’s to living rooms, animal accents  have made their way back into everyday decor.  I came across these super cute paper-mache heads from dwell studios and I absolutely love them! I don’t have a place for one now, but I am going to keep these in mind for the home office I hope to have one day!

mirror, mirror…

A mirrored piece of furniture can be a beautiful accent for any room, however mirrored pieces are typically way out of my price range. I came across this piece from Target for a great price.  And I have to say I am highly considering!

leather in the mail

Well it was back to work today and finally a little feeling of normalcy around here. It was nice to come home to a mailbox full of mail and a few packages on my doorstop {with the hurricane and the holiday probably a full weeks worth of mail}. One package in particular, I had been looking forward to receiving, a package that contained a little bit of leather! For fall leather is everywhere, however I cannot see myself pulling off a full leather look. When I came across this shirt I knew it was perfect for me, just a touch of leather and extreme comfort, and only $26!

*top: Zara $25.90

*note: I purchased a medium and typically wear a size 6-8

a little bit of sunshine

After the very hectic week caused by Hurricane Isaac, I am happy to report the sun is shining. Still no power in my little apartment, but we all made it through and that’s what matters. Hoping to have lucky girl finds back up and running normally for next week. Thanks for hanging in there! And for today nothing else is more appropriate than a little sunshine!

 

 

 

rainboots and umbrellas

We are preparing for a few rainy days ahead of us to say the least. Unfortunately this won’t be the type of weather you can go out in, however if I could, how perfect are these rainboots and umbrellas?

striped umbrella, henri bendel croc rainboots, short rainboots, polka dot rainboots, chevron umbrella 

well wrapped….

I never have gift wrap on hand and I always take the last-minute route of buying a gift bag and a few pieces of tissue paper. Recently on a trip to the Dollar Store I came across plain brown paper, for that’s right, you guessed it, a $1! I purchased the paper with no intention of doing anything with it. Until one day I decided to get out the paint and brushes and create a little chevron and polka-dot pattern. Nothing better than handmade wrapping paper! Also, this would be perfect paper for a photo backdrop for your next party!

P.S. There a far more pros about living in Southern Louisiana then cons, however one of the cons we have to deal with is hurricanes. Activity on lucky girl finds this week may be a little less than usual, however if I still have power and internet I will keep on posting!

friday finds {purchased}

{Oscar de la Renta $2,150}

{Old Navy $24.94}

 

I can’t help myself lately, I’ve been all about polka dots and stripes. I have been eyeing several polka dot sweaters for the fall and recently came across this gem from Old Navy {ordered it today actually} and at a price much less than the ones I have been seeing!
