heading to hilton

By May 27, 2011 Style

My suitcase is (over)packed, I have a fresh mani and pedi, and I’ve loaded up with 5(!) books to leisurely read, as I’m heading to Hilton Head Island this weekend for my cousin’s wedding. Sunday is the big day, even more special as it’s my mom and her (twin) sisters birthday as well. Looking forward to celebrating and soaking up the sun all weekend long. Have a Happy Memorial Day weekend!

**A very happy wedding day as well to my sweet blogger friend, Anna, of See Jane who is tying the knot today in Mexico!

Shoes, sweet shoes. I’ve come across so many incredible shoes online lately, and thanks to my Pinterest I can’t stop thinking about them. I didn’t realize how much I needed leopard print espadrilles, color blocked pink and orange heels, and straw colored platforms until I came across these lovelies. My polished toes would be happy to spend a warm summer night out in any of these.

recent finds

By May 24, 2011 Style

After recently cleaning out my closet, I was able to really evaluate what I had and what was missing from my wardrobe. One element I was most noticeably missing was a variety of belts. Although something as small as a belt could seem insignificant, they really truly change the entire look of an outfit, or can pull one entirely together. While I often see belts I like while shopping, at the time I can never think of what I’d wear them with. But then when trying things on from my closet, I constantly think it could be that much better with a belt. So while in Chicago last week I made sure to load up on some skinny belts, my favorites being a bright yellow and bright navy from H&M. I also needed a new pair of summer sandals, and found this darling bow pair at Forever 21. Finally, in anticipation of summer I decided these high-waisted printed shorts from MintLA boutique were the perfect first pair of the season.

**If you too are cleaning out your closet, be sure to take your unwanted clothes to Gap right now, through May 29th they will accept your donations and take them to Goodwill for you, and just for donating you will get 30% off your purchase! (35% with a Gap card!)

chicago escape

By May 20, 2011 Style

I decided to take a little impromptu mid-week break to go play in Chicago for a few days. I dined, sipped, and shopped my way through the city, and took advantage of one beautiful afternoon for a scenic run along the lake. Lush, bright-colored tulips lined Michigan Avenue, where I headed Thursday night to stop by Banana Republic to say hello to the darling Anna of See Jane, as she was playing hostess at the Banana Republic after 5 event. There I also met Audrey of A Lovely Escape, and somehow I escaped the store without buying a beautiful pink sequin dress that was calling my name. Between this fun event, happy hour with friends over margaritas, a late night champagne bar, and my first visit to Millennium Park, I’d say the entire little trip was a lovely little escape.
