i’m kind of in love with my new sam edelman heels which i lovingly refer to as my princess kate shoes. because, see…right here. kind of, right? i was looking for a pair of shoes to wear to my brothers wedding, this past weekend, with this dress and i wanted something really classic and that i could wear in my everyday style too. these did not dissapoint. they are on major sale and hey it is a small price to pay to feel like princess kate for a day.
so, speaking of the wedding i went a little overboard with the nude / natural look. the above are a few beauty products that i’m loving at the moment.
and if you are wondering about the wedding
is it any wonder that today i picked something so proper? probably not, because as i write this i’m still in my bath robe and pajama pants (which i wore in the car to drop the littles off at school – don’t worry, i stayed in the car).
i’m liking this ensemble quite a lot. red shoes. ripped jeans. the little louis case . would you wear this? i’d be feeling all businessy trina…ready to take on the world.
if you are looking for some rugged jeans…i’m loving these destroyed skinnies by free people.
what about you, lovelies? what do you wishing you were wearing today?
oh, and after my long businessy kind of day, i’d spend my evening here!
necklace/ skirt / shoes
guess what? i’m wearing that same black skirt, again. what can i say? when i like something, i like it a lot and usually get my wear out of it. but, what i’m really loving is my new 31 bits lavalliere necklace, designed by dallas shaw (who looks so much cuter in the necklace). and, of course, what i love most is what 31 bits is all about!
as much as i love black, i’m also loving bright. i think these three spring additions are the the type to make the outfit! what is your favorite way to brighten up your wardrobe for spring?
and, speaking of clothes and such, i’m selling a few things from closet clean out right here.
p.s. did you notice the little someone photobombing above?
necklace c/o of 31 bits
dress / shirt / ring / shoes
clearly i have a thing for this chambray shirt (notice me in the top right corner of this blog – the shirt….look down a little further in the la la loves box – the shirt). truthfully, it’s probably my favorite item in my closet. however, it is not the misters favorite, as i wear it all the time. but i’m sticking with it! it is so versatile and crazy comfy. today, i’m wishing i was wearing my fave shirt with a cute floral dress, swedish hasbeens and a really rad ring, literally! i’m obviously wishing, dreaming and hoping for warmer days. that is what the month of march is good for in the midwest – wishful thinking!
while on vacation in tucson, i stumbled upon a new shop, which i quickly fell in love with. avenue boutique was so great that i knew right away i had to share it with all of you. when i walked in i couldn’t decide whether to feast my eyes on the decor or the actual merchandise. aren’t those the best kind of shops?
i went straight for the jewelry because i was on the search for small gold rings. And lucky me, i found them! like very cool, handmade ones.
after taking in all of the goodies i couldn’t help but ask if could snap a few photos. don’t you love the design?

hi lovelies. i thought i’d share an outfit that i wore on vacation (this was for going out to dinner, the rest of the time consisted of comfy clothes). as i’ve said before, i always overpack and sadly this is a hard habit to break. the pieces in this outfit are great for traveling because, you could just throw in a pair of jeans, a blazer, maybe a printed skirt and one other pair of flats or sandals and you’d have a perfect weekender all filled up.
so tell me, are you an efficient packer? and what do you like to wear on vacation?
more on clothes + glitter boots!

after two weeks of (almost all) warm weather, i’ve arrived back to the frozen tundra in which i call home. and although, i’m grateful to be home in my cozy house with a crackling fire, i’m still wishing i could throw on a little something like this today.
so who heading to ALT SUMMIT next week? this will be my 3rd year attending and i have to say i’ve learned a thing or two along the way. for instance . . . what to pack. if this is your first time, than i hope this photo journal will help give you some ideas.
you’ll need / /
+accessories – you know the stuff the makes the outfit or takes it from one to two outfits. this is my new favorite necklace!
+polk dots - are always popular (and so are stripes). this bow ads instant fun to any outfit.
+comfy - is good because every night is like a slumber party. i’m bringing these.
+shoes - i say bring as many as you can fit. i always opt for practical and pretty. my new favorites.
+patterns - are always popular. you’ll probably see me wearing this shirt.
+school supplies - sort of. don’t forget your business cards, a notebook, good pen, your camera, iPad or computer and some mints to share with your new friends. this case keeps things cheerful.
+a dress - or two. i like going a bit simple and dressing it up. i’ll be dolling up this dress, with some accessories, for the clue party.
so there you have it. don’t worry, i’m not bringing all this, but i will be overpacking because i just always do. i guess i like to be over prepared.
what about you friends, do you over pack for trips? or do you plan out every outfit? i’d love to know.
if you are going to ALT… i’d love to meet you! and if you’d like to know about any other item pictured, just let me know.
