Weekend Basics

10 Jun

I love dressing easy and comfortably during the weekends.  I like to choose pieces that go easily together and can be dressed up or down fairly quickly because I rarely plan my weekend activities ahead of time.  This bag is one of my favorites this season.  It holds everything I need  with ample space and the navy stripes set the tone for summer with a nautical feel.

Wedges are also great for the weekend and I can’t get enough of these Jeffrey Campbell ones!  They look good even with my chipped toe nail, hehe and also provide me a few extra inches without the extra pain that usually accompanies heels.

After searching far and wide for a summer sweater I settled upon this basic black linen one from T. Babaton.  I love the lightness that comes with the linen, a perfect summer fabric.  And of course, bloomer shorts are just so precious that I had to add another pair to the collection!  I am looking forward to a nice, relaxing and fun filled weekend!

Happy Friday!




Lady Like

8 Jun

I love the soft lines and feminine details of this outfit.  This is what I would put together for an afternoon strolling through museums or a romantic Sunday brunch.  I like to mix up different textures (in this case…suede, lace, silk and leather) when wearing monochromatic or neutral colors.  I think it brings attention to small details and makes an otherwise plain outfit well…spectacular.

Originally, the photos above are what I had in mind for the outfit but on this particular day, I decided to dress it down a little bit for a laid back day of shopping with my sister.  I also wore my favorite Chambray shirt as a light jacket over this outfit but took it off for the pictures because it was getting quite warm out!  A big surprise around here.

I’m sure I’ll put all of these pieces into heavy rotation this summer.  I love versatile outfits!  Don’t you?

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a little more so I can wander around in this get up.  Didn’t think I would be a major fan of the midi skirts this season but I LOVE them.  This is one of the few I have gotten and I am so glad I gave them a chance.  It is light, comfy and makes me feel delightfully happy!


This sheer textured black tee and striped bandeau add elements that make this summer outfit more fun without taking focus from the skirt’s floral print.

Add a straw fedora and you are ready for a day at a nearby festival.

Lust List-Aritzia Spring/Summer 2011

17 Mar

Currently lusting after pretty much everything from the Aritzia Spring/Summer 2011 runway show.  Here is a look at some of my favorites…

The WILFRED Dauphine jacket and Cannes shorts are for sure on my to buy list.

WILFRED Alexa dress…too cute!

TALULA Exeter blazer and Windsor shirt are perfectly preppy while the CITIZENS of HUMANITY Boogie denim shorts add the perfect touch of cool.

I love everything about this look for a fun day or night out.  TALULA Drew tank and Gina skirt.

I think I’ve found my answer to spring showers in this T. BABATON Graydon trench coat.  I also love the softness and movement of the T. BABATON Taylor skirt.


Enough drooling over these lust worthy threads…it’s time to shop!




Btw- Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy Birthday Anne!

Talula FW 2010

9 Aug

Although we’re approaching mid-August soon the weather here in Seattle is closer to the fall.  Doesn’t feel like we’ve had much of a summer this year but Talula’s new 2010 Fall/Winter look book has got me excited for the crisp, cool autumn days and nights!  Here are a few of my favorite looks from this collection.


Love the updated school girl looks. (Lil’ J would be so proud)

Little accessories like the bowtie and bracelet enhance the outfit.

The tulle ballerina skirt has got my heart skipping a beat!  That will be a definite purchase.
Mittens=sooooo cute!
Florals and oversized cardigans are still in style.
LBD-a staple in every girl’s closet.  Bonus if its a bodycon, has sculpted shoulders or textured.
All my favorite things-boyfriend blazers, florals and stripes.

Bold lips-a fall beauty must have.


If you love the collection as much as I do run out to your nearest Aritzia and start your fall wardrobe early!
