Fri-Yay.

And, Friday! This week flew by… I don’t really know where it went, but now I’m winding things down and have managed to get a cold. Whenever the weather changes I seem to get sick… drives me nuts. But anyway. Clothes. My friend Stacy convinced me to buy this skirt while I was in Charleston, and I’m so happy she did. I’m a huge fan of all things Theory and I love the preppy-chic vibe. As an added bonus, it has an elastic waist (loove the striped waistband), making it extra comfy.

Transitioning..

I can feel it in the air – Spring is (almost) here.

Also, these pink sunglasses: I never thought I could pull them off but they’re surprisingly wearable and go with everything I own.

The Finishing Touch…

Sunglasses are a funny thing. They’re oftentimes the last thing on our minds, yet one of the most important elements of our look/outfit. I personally tend to forget about them… and I have funny rules about them (for example, if I’m wearing my hair curly/natural, I refuse to wear sunglasses because I think it looks too busy. I know. I’m a lunatic.) The thing is, this time of year, eyewear is particularly important…

Winter Florals.

This dress. My friend Stacy suggested it and I thought it was pretty but wasn’t totally sold on it until I tried it on and fell in love with the cut. It got me to thinking though, I do so much of my shopping online. It’s rare, these days, for me to actually go into an actual store and try something on. And that’s a bit of a bummer because…
