The Book I Read in Aug

August was another one-book month. I didn’t read much in August because I was glued to the Olympics. I am not sure what came over me with this Olympic Games, but I was obsessed. I had the TV on the Olympics basically all day. I think I watched every event. I was so inspired by all the athletes. They were completely amazing. This month I read The Bette Davis Club and I really liked. It is such a fun, fast, easy, funny read. In short, a women (The author keeps calling her old, but I think she is only in […]

I have teamed up with the lovely ladies of Pucker Up Style and The J Petite for the Lipstick and Layers linkup! Today it is all about colored nails and booties. So obviously I had to bust out my new Marc Fisher LTD booties to celebrate. And I think we all know that colorful nail polish is near and dear to my heart. Check out my bootie-ful look below. Sorry, I couldn’t resist a shoe joke. Shoes: Marc Fisher LTD | Skirt: Old, but love this one | Shirt: J. Crew Factory

Pretty In Pink

First and foremost, Pretty in Pink is probably my least favorite Molly Ringwald movie. I prefer Sixteen Candles or The Breakfast Club. But the reference was too good to pass up. Anyway, I really enjoy this dress. The hemline is a little longer than what I usually wear with dresses so heels are essential. But it’s still so pretty. I love the lace details, and the sleeves make it versatile enough to wear through Fall. Dress: Asos | Shoes: Go Jane (similar) p.s Check out my latest MODE story here!

Friday Fab Four

Have you guys seen these FaceCradle things for traveling? When I watch the promo video I can’t stop laughing at it. But I also REALLY really want one. I almost donated to their Kickstarter to get one. But I don’t really fly that much so it wouldn’t get the use it needs. First, look at how tiny Hannah is in the photo above. So darn cute. Except that I  have really shot myself in the foot with carrying her all the time. She now won’t walk and insists on being carried. But she is SO heavy. Life is hard. In other […]

So I wanted to share my YouTube faves. I would love to see your favorites, too!

Super Casual

You guys, I love this shirt. I have worn it about a thousand times. Ok, I just got it so I’ve worn it two times, but still. It is also really easy to get stains out of. This is important because Hannah thinks my shirts are giant napkins. I am hoping she grows out of this. Shoes: J. Crew Factory | Jeans: Gap | Top: THML

Off the Shoulder

I was hesitant to jump on the off-the-shoulder bandwagon. Even though the trend is lovely I didn’t want to spend money on something I knew would be ‘out-of-style’ in a year or so. So I have been looking at inexpensive alternatives. I found this dress on Charming Charlie and it is cute, trendy and under $40! Score! Dress: Charming Charlie | Shoes: Sweetest Stitch | Bag: Humble Chic
