What I Love About Your Look.....

In keeping with my bright colored mood that I seem to be in, I found this lovely look.  What I love about it is the color, of course, the cute bow detail at the back, and the dark mint accessories to top it all off.  I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend.

Can A Girl Really Have to Much Leopard?

I have two pairs of leopard heels and I thought that I was covered in the leopard shoe area, until.........I saw these!!!  Not in the budget but they have definitely been added to the watch for a sale list.  :)

Cantaloupe with a Squeeze of Lemon.....

I'm not sure about where you all live but the temperature in Texas has been hotter than hot.  What better to wear in this weather than bright colors?  I opted for a men's oxford, they fit me way better in the bust area, and these new khaki's I got from The Gap a couple of weekends ago at their mega clearance sale. And topped it all off with a little unexpected color from these great turquoise earrings, which happen to be one of my favorite jewelry purchases of the summer.

What I Love About Your Look.....

So in an effort to keep my blog new and exciting I have decided to start a new feature called, What I love about your look.  Since one of my favorite types of blogs are the ones that showcase street style, I thought this would be a great way for me to incorporate my love for these into my blog.  I will feature some of the fantastic style that a lot you have and give my opinion on what I love about each look that I post.  For those of you that don't have a blog, never fear, I am also accepting high res images of you via email for an opportunity to be featured as well.  Let me know what you think.  I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend.

I love that she is totally working this full skirt and balancing it out with a fitted top and belt.

Dress It Down.....

One of my new favorite things to do is to wear a button down shirt and tie the front.  There is something about it that makes any outfit cute and flirty.   I decided to combine this look with this dress that I don't wear too often since its strapless and more dressy than I wear on a regular basis. I wanted to style it with something that would make it more wearable for work so as most of you know, I believe that anything denim automatically makes any outfit more casual.  This is what I came up with.

Since I love to eat, I am always looking for a great restaurant to try.  This desire of mine took me to Smoke over the weekend for their infamous brunch. A lot of my coworkers were raving about this place so I thought what the heck, I'll try anything once.  Well let me tell you it was everything everyone said and more.  From the very hip but rustic decor, to the laid back staff, and most important of all the AMAZING food it was all so wonderful.   It was one of those kinds of restaurants where you want to try everything that everyone else is having.   It was overall a great experience 2 thumbs up.

The Belmont...

This weekend was a scorcher in Dallas, but instead of staying at home I went out and braved the heat.  I had been wanting to try bunch at this place called Smoke, I will post my review tomorrow, so that's where I ended up.  I wasn't sure what the attire would be so I thought that a cute flirty look, not too dressed up, not too dressed down would be perfect.  This is what I ended up with, the perfect middle ground.  I snapped a couple pics at the Belmont hotel right next door while I waited to be seated.  What did you all do this weekend?

My What A Large Bow You Have....

I finally had a moment to browse some of the looks from Prabal Gurung for J Crew.  I remember first hearing his name on an episode of The City.  Joe Zee was raving about this new designer, boy what a mention on a reality show can do for your career.  I love that each piece looks like a work of art.  Did you like the collection?

Sponge Print....

Just in case you don't already know, I am one of those girls that just LOVES a sale.  I can't always afford to buy the things at regular price so I have no issue with waiting for something to get marked down.  This skirt was one of those items.  There is something about the sponge like effect of the squares that I just love!  It is definitely one of my top summer sale purchases thus far.  I wasn't sure what to pair with it,  and since I didn't want to be to matchy, this is what I came up with.

Test Run....

I decided to take my new shoes out for a test run today.  I would have worn them sooner but I sprained my ankle when I was out of town so I haven't worn heels for over a week and I was starting to go through withdrawals.  I wanted to ease back into wearing heels so I thought that my new shoes were a good choice.  Happy Monday Everyone!

As a Sale Closes Fall Begins....

I am out of town yet again, this time in Houston visiting family and my beautiful niece who I featured here.  The big sale at Net a Porter is now over and the new Fall goods are rolling in.  Its so hard to think about long sleeves and coats when it is so hot outside.  There are some great pieces from Missoni and while I wait for the Target line to debut I guess I will just have to dream about owning one of these great pieces from their high end line.

Dress My Nest: A Little Inspiration

I finally picked a paint color for all the main open areas in my house.  Now I just need to take a few before pictures and recruit some help from the family for a painting party.  While I get that organized here is a little inspiration that I love.
