Strappy Happy.

It's a good thing it's not 1920, because I really don't have what could be considered "shapely ankles."  Nevertheless, I can't wait to show them off once the weather warms up.

Fashion Week Faves

As much I love drooling over gorgeous nighttime collections like Jenny Packham or the always classic Oscar de la Renta, my favorite looks each Fashion Week always end up being on the more wearable end of the spectrum.  As I've been perusing Style.com the past few days, I started noticing some pretty distinct similarities in my favorite collections.  Apparently I'm really into leather plus a ladylike element (lace, fur, etc.) as well as short skirts with tall boots and lots of layers... basically, everything shown at Phillip Lim, J.Crew (shocker!), and Marissa Webb.

Trend to Try: Wedge Sneakers

This is a new series I've been thinking about, so y'all please let me know in the comments if you like it. Basically, I'll highlight a trend I've noticed on other blogs/bloggers, in street style photos, on the runway, etc. and then give you some options for where to find the pieces.  For many of the trends I highlight, I will also do some outfit shots in a later post to show you how I wear it.

First up is wedge sneakers.  SN: I never say sneakers in real life, but "high top tennis shoes" just doesn't have the right ring to it.  Anyway, I kinda love these, even though they're definitely out of my style comfort zone.  Target has some really cute, very affordable options in stores right now, and I decided to go for it since I was spending less than $30.  (The shoes are $34.99 but I had a few dollars left on a gift card to get me under $30.)  Check it out.

So what do y'all think?  Would you wear some wedge sneakers?

Blue Gingham.

Hi!  Soooo... if any of y'all are still reading, I'll be back to posting.  It probably won't be every day like it was before, but maybe a couple of posts a week.

Anyway, this is what I wore on Sunday for grocery shopping and whipping up some ridiculously good dip for our monthly dinner club, which was a Super Bowl party this time.

Shirt - J.Crew (old) (new colors) // Sweater - J.Crew // Jeans - Old Navy // 
Flats - J.Crew Outlet // Bag - Coach Outlet // Necklace - Premier // Sunnies - LOFT

This Coach bag was my Christmas score.  Every year my mama and I go to the St. Augustine outlets on the day after Christmas because they always have serious deals - particularly in the Coach store.  I had been wanting this bag for like a year, and I thought it might be in the outlet by now.  Sure enough, they had TWO left, both of which were claimed by some very tiny, very serious older ladies.  I stalked them all around the store (several laps, let's be honest) silently willing one of them to put it back.  The second lady #2 put hers down, I grabbed it and literally ran to the register before she could stop me.  Yes, I realize the whole scenario is ridiculous, and no, I don't really care.  Please don't judge me too harshly.
