A Shorts Story

I'm not a huge fan of shorts (other than running shorts).  But recently I've seen a lot of really cute shorts that are making my rethink my opinion.  So many now would be perfect for an evening out and so easily can be dressed up!  Stripes, lace, colorblock... there are so many different styles right now!

Are you rocking shorts this summer?

Tuesday Shoesday Week #14

One must have that should be in every woman's closet is a great pair of nude heels.  They make your legs look longer, look great with just about everything and definitely can add sophistication and style to an outfit.

So here is a list of some of my favorites!

Do you have nude shoes in your closet?

Coverup Cool

Since I talked about bathing suits last week,  its only fair that I mention my love for the coverups I've been seeing.  Of course you can use just anything for a coverup- a towel, a t-shirt... but what is the fun in that?

All of these cover ups really take it to the next level-  you could easily leave the pool/ beach and head straight for a bite to eat or happy hour and look fantastic!

I have been seeing so many things recently that I am dying for!  Since we are moving, I am having to save my money for home updates but I can still look and wish for things, right??

Here is what is currently on my wishlist!

Major Maillots

I can't remember the last time I wore a real one piece bathing suit.  I've worn tankinis but it has a really long time since I have sported a true one piece.  Until recently, I would have told you I didn't like them... until the retro looking one pieces started coming out.

I love the look of retro, ladylike bathing suits.  They are so sweet and flirty too!  I would totally wear any of these adorable suits!

Are you trying a one piece this summer?

Tuesday Shoesday Week #13

I am a flats kind of girl.  I love heels, but for a day to day basis, I love my flats.  I love all kinds- ballet, pointy toe, metallic, print, bright colors, stripes, neutrals, high end, low end...

I recently found the cutest flats from Brooks Brothers.  I have never really been a big Brooks Brothers girl (for me) but these Ikat print flats are super cute! Plus I just adore the bows!!

And the best news is that Brooks Brothers is having a 40% off sale until July 3!

Book Review

I recently finished a REALLY good book!!


This book was so good that I stayed up until 1 in the morning finishing it.  I have this thing about loving books about school and growing up- like Ellen Foster, Prep, Commencement, Cum Laude, Ordinary People... I read a review of it in a magazine a few months ago, and it said it was a mixture between Heathers (which I have no idea what that is) and The Dead Poet's Society (love that movie!... again, about school).

The book is told from three points of view:  Iris, present time freshman girl who has moved to a new, very small town to essentially start over, Jonah, present time teacher at the school who was once a student there and Lily, former student who went to the school and told from about 10 or so years earlier when she was in highs school.  Iris lives in the house that Lily once lived in, and she is really intrigued by her...

It is really good- there is a secret society, lots of twists and turns, a few love triangles, and some tragedy.  I highly recommend it.

So go read it, and then tell me what you think!

Tuesday Shoesday Week #12

Happy Tuesday all!  This week's Tuesday Shoesday pick was really difficult for me.  I wanted something that way ladylike, stylish and sophisticated.



These Juliana Patent Pumps from Anthropologie are just the shoe I was looking for!  They are so sweet with the bows, and every girl needs a pair of nude heels!

The Truth of the Matter...

If you follow me on twitter, you may have noticed that I have been talking a lot about some big changes coming up.  Now that things are official, I am going to tell you all about the crazy things going on.

We are moving.

via

Not just to a different house, we are moving to a different city in a different state.  We are moving to Jackson, Mississippi for the hubs to go to law school.  Jackson is about a 3 hour drive from Memphis, and while some of you might think that isn't that far- neither of us has ever lived away.  Also, we don't know a single soul in Jackson.  



We just recently (as in like a week ago) made the final decision that we were going to Jackson.  So now we have to find a house to rent and I have to find a job in, like, a month.  I've already been to Jackson twice now.  We went to tour the school and look around a little bit, and then I was there this past weekend looking for houses and I had an interview (which turned out to be for a maternity leave position... we'll see).  

There is so much to be done in such a short amount of time.  Charlie starts orientation August 7, so I want to be moved and ready to go August 1.  

The scariest thing is not knowing anyone.  I don't have a lot of close friends anyway, but not having anyone to go grab coffee or some lunch?  I know Charlie is going to be so so busy with his first year in law school, so that means a lot of alone time for me.  People that really know me don't believe this but I am extremely introverted.  I don't like talking to people I don't know (on a social basis), and I also can be extremely awkward around new people.  

So, does anyone have any tips or advice about moving somewhere where you know no one?  Or does anyone have any friends in Jackson that they would like to share with me??

Summer Florals

I am loving all of the floral prints that I've been seeing recently!  I love all the feminine prints and the bright colors.  It makes the hot summer days that will be headed our way a little less brutal, I think.



1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

The Tory Burch pants are just about the cutest things ever!!  If I didn't try to draw as little attention to my bottom half as possible, I would totally wear them!!  Aslo, the J. Crew flats are a great way to add just a hint of floral!

Outfit Inspiration

The other day, I did something a tiny bit creepy... I was getting some lunch and I saw a girl that looked super adorable and I knew that her outfit was something that I would love to recreate here.  So, I might have taken a picture of her.  I had to remember it, and there is so much going on in my head lately that I can't retain all that much!  So yeah, I took a stalker picture of the chick from the back so I wouldn't forget. (And no, I'm not posting the crazy picture I took to remind me).

Now that I said all that, I was inspired by this girl and have created a similar look that is so perfect for day to night I cannot even tell you! Of course I am giving it my own spin!  Love this look.  I need it all.




1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

For night, leave the blazer at home and switch to an adorable clutch!  I need all of this ASAP!

Tuesday Shoesday Week #11

This week's Tuesday Shoesday pick is all about a trend I've been noticing lately-  Tribal prints.  Normally I'm not a big tribal inspired kind of girl, however I like it for shoes.  Sometimes, it can be a little overpowering, but with shoes, its just the right amount.
