Wear To – Memorial Day

Memorial Day is just around the corner (literally, it’s in five days), which means that most everyone is gearing up for a weekend full of backyard barbecues, pool openings, and general outdoorsy time.  I, too, plan to soak up the (almost) summer sun this weekend with a burger and cool drink in hand, so to optimize my time outside, I planned my barbecue-attending outfit in advance.

Trend Trials – Leather

I’m excited to share my inaugural post in a new series dedicated to my pursuit of trying the latest trends.  We all know that the most ‘trendy’ pieces aren’t always the most practical for our lifestyles or compatible with our body types.  So, I’ll be picking one current trend each month and attempting to recreate it in an everyday, average Jane fashion.  Some trends will succeed, while others — I presume — will not be as lucky and will be banished to the back of my closet.

Shopping List – April 2014

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Introducing the first of monthly installments of my shopping / wish list!  I have carefully compiled my top shopping picks for April based on the transition to warmer weather, spring pastels, and items I’ve wanted to add to my closet for quite some time — and all but one are $60 or under (and in some cases, way under $60)!  Of course, I had to include one splurge item that I’ve been stalking for the last two months.  The Marc by Marc Jacobs Techno Block Slim Zippy is my perfect blend of practical/neutral meets sassy/bold, and I wouldn’t mind getting it as a gift. (Hint hint, wink wink, boyfriend!)
