dark side.

And as I continue my love affair with an all black ensemble, these two beauties need to join in on the fun.  I seriously can't stop thinking about these fringe pants.  And these cutout booties are gorgeous.  Ugh, now the question is, what must I part with in my closet to make some much needed room.

Well, the temps are arising and I'm ready to finally bust out some of my summer gear.  I've been partial to one-pieces this year, and I think this little beauty may need to join my growing collection.  It's definitely time to hit the beach, pool, or lake with these summer essentials.

new heels.

Well I've been trying to incorporate more heels into my wardrobe and so far so good.  I decided I needed to add a nude heel into the lineup and stumbled upon this pair.  I just ordered them, so once I've received them and given them a whirl, I will let you know what I think.  I feel like a nude heel is one of those staple closet items that I've been missing for far too long.



I just picked up these pretties last week and I feel like I need to spread the word on how amazing they are.  I've been pretty much wearing them non-stop and that's a big deal for a girl who rarely wears heels during the day.  The wide heel makes them super comfy and I mean, that print...gorgeous.  So go and get yourself a pair too!


high heeled.

I'm not much of a high heeled girl for my daytime look, but when it comes to going out to dinner I love to throw on a pair of heels.  I mean, riding the bus and hiking up & down the hills of the city make it a bit inconvenient to be wearing stilettos, but come nighttime that all changes.  Ummm especially if it means a dinner where I'll be spending most of the evening sitting.  ha!  I love these laced up pretties from Zara and might just snag them up this weekend.


the booties.

I kind of couldn't stop talking about these booties on instagram this weekend and here I am again still yapping about them.  Ha!  But I can't help it, they seriously have become my new fave.  I wore them with this free people dress to lunch with family.  Then changed into a sequins dress and sweater for a movie night with G.  And lastly wore them with this Mara Hoffman amazingness and jeans for a brewery tour.  Thank you Target for making a pair of fall booties that I can't get enough of!

I posted a pic of these TOMS on instagram yesterday and rapidly had friends texting me asking about them, so I thought I'd dedicate a little post to them.  I've been kind of obsessed with TOMS since the days when I worked in the wedding industry.  Standing on your feet for countless hours (as in starting setup for a wedding at 8am, and striking that night at midnight), meant I needed to wear something super comfy, so these were my go to.  And this new fabric has so far held up pretty well....score!

fall boots.

Speaking of cute booties, I'm in need of a fun pair for Fall.  Loving the looks of all of these.  Now I just need to make a decision on which 1 (or 2, ha!) must join my closet.

a few of my faves.

I'm been trying (rather unsuccesfully) to put a halt on shopping.  I've been looking around our home and truly appreciating all of the "stuff" that we already have.  Like our bourgie lamp and my favorite pair of lace booties.  And I've also been figuring out ways to wear what I already have in my closet with different pieces.  Like my new go-to date night outfit, pairing any of my sequins skirts (or dresses) with a chambray top.  A little sparkle and a little jean is the way to go.  And to top it all off?  Well, you can never go wrong some ban.do in your life.  I own two of the gold hearts that I wear in my hair, on my shirts, and as shoe clips.  They are golden heaven!

summer getaway.

At the moment, I'm craving a little summer getaway.  Yay, yay, yay...I realize it's not quite summer yet, but I'm aching for it now.  I mean I'm not going to lie, I'm not exactly the girl that's waiting for the season to begin just so she can run off to the beach.  I will most definitely be hitting up the beach, but I will be the girl with a HUGE umbrella shading me.  But it's more then just the sun that summertime brings.  It brings about a certain carefree attitude, a vacation mode, a sense of new things to come.  I'm ready for that feeling and I believe that the anticipation deserves a new dress to go along with it. Don't you?  I do believe that this lovely little yellow number would do the trick.  Uhhh hello, add a cute sun hat and sandals...we are done.

By the way, after I wear the stunning yellow number on my summer vacation (ha, do you notice that I'm already pretending like it's mine?)...I will definitely doll it up with a statement necklace and some amaze heels.  If I'm going to buy a pricey dress, I get a lot of bang for my buck (aka I wear it every chance I get).
