Maybe its the 80's child in me but lately I have found myself purchasing more denim. I love this shirt dress. Its just long enough for work and really looks great with a wide belt. The short sleeves will lend to layering when it finally get cold here.


I am not a big concert-goer but I do enjoy a good show. I went to Phantogram tonight with friends and had the best time. The venue was super quaint (and we really only got in with the persuasion of my roommate) which really added to the experience.

I am a huge fan of capes, all sizes and colors:

I was thrilled to be able to put one on this week since the weather has finally turned cooler.

I am not great at layering but its a look that I strive to perfect! My attempt today was a white blouse and a short sleeved sweater, paired with a slim black skirt and Mary Janes. The texture in the shirt is amazing!

Todays Look: After Work Birthday Party

Tonight I am attending a friends birthday party at a little Irish pub, this environment does not call for sequins or silk so I went for completely casual. I wore an over-sized white blouse cream silk shorts with lace trim and my combat boots.

I can't say enough how excited I get when Target releases a new Designer line. Tucker was particularly exciting because it was an affordable way to introduce more pattern to my typically solid wardrobe.I LOVE the florals and polka dots in warm fall colors.

Todays Look: Stripes

I decided on a simple black dress and oxfords for work today but before I left threw on a striped sweater, its amazing to me what a little pattern can do to a really plain look.

How To: Jello Shots

I would like to say I have moved past college Past thinks like jello shots but lets get real, I have not. Tomorrow we are heading to the Auburn game vis chartered bus and I was asked to assist in the creation of 300 jello shots. To which I was happy to help! Until I realized I had no clue how to actually make them. A few failed attempts later I perfected the mix of 1 cup water, 1 cup vodka and 1 box of jello.

Combat Boots

I usually never wear flats, but this season I really wanted to get som slouchy combat boots, I looked at tons and no one pair really jumped out at me until I finally stumbled upon these!

I will admit I was pretty anti-Avatar when it first came out. But one of my roommates is quite the promoter and when it was re-released I pretty much had no choice-that and the promise of popcorn(add butter) with m&ms poured in. I was super surprised at how much I really liked the movie! And it was the first movie I have seen in 3D which was again awesome! It is by far the most visually beautiful movies I have ever seen! I even found myself crying!

Boyfriend Jeans

I love my store-bought boyfriend jeans! I would much prefer the real thing, not necessarily "boyfriend" but jeans that are a boys. I live with two guy roommates now so I should probably steal some. I paired them with my fav oversized vintage blue sweater and mary janes.

Marc Jacobs

So tonight I watched the fall show - Amazing! Such an incredible talent! And since I can't be in NY watching it live(while eating dinner at Whole Foods) was the next best thing

I am definitely tuning in tomorrow for Marc by Marc....

Mary Janes

I love love love mary janes, unfortunately the pair I love are Miu Miu and slightly out of the budget. So when I found these on Forever 21's website I freaked out! They are very similar and look amazing on, however when I went to buy them - SOLD OUT. Well that was no match for me I kept checking back and no luck. Until this weekend I was browsing the store and low and behold there they were just waiting for me to take them home!

Game Day

Today was the first game of this football season so we picked a restaurant with a deck outside to enjoy the amazing weather. I am super excited about the next few Saturdays of this!!!

I found a pair of clogs by Isaac Mizrahi at Target in college, and something told me to hang onto them. So now that this season is full of clogs I felt now was the time for a resurface.

How to: Curtains

Nothing finishes a room like curtains, they are the final touch of style and color to complete a room. So when I moved in my new house I really wanted curtains in the living room. I ran into a challenge with the long bay window in the front. So I decided with a little help from my sweet dad I could make the curtain rod. We used a 1.5" wood dowel and spray painted it glossy black. After a few coats and a few hours of drying time, we drilled holes in each end and screwed in finials that came already painted black. I bought 2" chrome curtain rings to finish soft cream curtains. We repeated the process for the other window and I was super excited with the turnout!

Pure Barre

Today I went to my first Pure Barre class. My roommate Ashley is the manager and has been dying to get me and my other two guy roommates to take a class. So Jeff and I headed to class, he not knowing he would be the only guy, is now proud to tell all that he is the only guy in GA to have taken class so far. It was an amazing workout and a great time. Since Ash and I are unashamed massive Justin Bieber fans, the mix during the workout could not have been better! This may be the start regularly working out....

High Waisted Skirts

I find high-waisted skirts to be the most flattering, and they work both casual and formal. Below are some of my favorites!

Office Meeting

Today I have two meetings in the office which requires I get out of bed in time to actually blow dry and straighten my hair, which I would not usually do... It also requires a more professional business look so I pulled out my bright blue cropped pants from High School. Case in point why- you should always hold on to random pieces like this in case styles come back. I added a deep purple silk shell and and nude heels to complete the look.

Hamburger Perfection

Recently my good friend Kendal was lucky enough to encounter the most perfect and delicious hamburger on the planet from Cypress Street Bar. Its a hamburger housed between a glazed donut that has been lightly grilled. The combination of sweet and savory is unreal!!
