Easter......

After seeing this very cute skirt on Chanel over at the Chanelfiles blog, I took a quick mental note but didn't think I would get one since they were already sold out online.  Well, in come the stars and they all aligned as they so often do.  I was at H&M a few weeks ago and low and behold there it was the very same skirt that I thought wouldn't ever own.  I did my mental happy dance and left with one.  I chose to rip off the tags to make an Easter debut and I must say I LOVE this skirt.  Its very figure flattering and super comfy.  I hope you all had a great Easter.

Snap Shot....

I have a confession to make.  The reason this post is called snap shot is because right after it was taken my camera died!  AHHHHHH.....  I got this great clutch from designer Suakoko Betty which I hope to outfit again very soon.  She was a recent winner in Belk's southern designer's showcase and her collection will be coming to a Belk store near you.  To get this clutch and see some of her other apparel styles visit her store here.  I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend!!

Casual Sundays.....

I don't wear flats, I wear sneakers even less aside from my trips to the gym, so when I found these Adidas at Urban Outfitters AND at a price that wouldn't allow me to leave them on the shelf I was super stoked.  We had some pretty awesome Spring weather this past weekend so this simple knit black skirt, white tee, and quilt detailed jacket were the perfect compliments to these shoes.

Black and White.....

Black and white is such a classic color combo.  So even though I could have worn this dress with a lot of more colorful options I opted for this great tweed boyfriend blazer that I picked up from H&M.  It turned out to be a great outfit for the slightly cool weather we had this weekend.

Are You In The House?

House Account that is.  I was recently introduced to this great app that is basically like of having all of your favorite local boutiques showcasing snap shots of their available inventory right at your fingers tips.  The app began as a way for boutiques in cities across the country to reach customers that would normally never walk through the doors of their stores, so this app eliminates the distance between the shops that their new and returning customers.  After browsing the app I found some of my new favorite local shops, Tootsies and Elements, as well as some of my old favorites, By George in Austin, TX where I went to college.  Next time you are on your smart phone which if any of your are like me its basically every moment of the day except for when I am sleeping, download the app and check it out.

P.S. - If you live in Dallas there is a $1000.00 shopping spree up for grabs through the app.  To enter:  download the house account app and follow all of your favorite Dallas boutiques by 3/10/14.  House Account will award the boutique with the most new followers $1000.00, which will in turn be sent to a follower of that boutique who is chosen at random.  Its SIMPLE!!!  If you don't download you won't have the chance to by a load.  HA!!!

Full Banded Pleats......

Life has been so busy these past couple weeks but I am back and with a new outfit post.  I have wanted one of those very cute full banded skirts after passing up the cutest version from Pleasure Doing Business at Neimans about a year ago now.  So when I saw a version of this style on a recent visit to Francesca's I jumped for joy.  They had quite a few color options but I opted for the navy and before I walked out the door I was already planning outfits for this newest addition to my closet.

Lynx.....

I don't own a ton of things with prints on them.  There is no particular reason for this other than, when I shop I always seem to gravitate towards solids, stripes, or plaids which is hardly a fun wardrobe in the making.  I have been shopping the final end of season sales for the past few weeks and I find myself drawn to this dress again and again from multiple online retailers.  Its perfectly loose with a great pleated detail at the back neck.  The color and style can not only be worn with a great over coat and black tights during these cold months but it will transition perfectly into the warmer months that for some of you can't come soon enough.  It hasn't quite made it into a shopping cart yet but it keeps calling my name.
