On a quest for the fashionable life via my little corner of the web, Le Stylo Rouge.

Stripes, Beach Waves, and Busted Knees.

There’s something about summer that makes me forget my denim collection. Maybe it’s the KC heat ‘n humidity, or maybe it’s that I missed my summer dresses + shorts so much over the winter I throw myself into a pretty strict legs-out policy come late May, but either way it’s been a minute since I’ve slipped on a pair of jeans....more

Tropical Crop + LookMazing's Who Wore It Best.

I’m excited to have been selected to take part in LookMazing‘s Who Wore It Best contest!LookMazing is a fashion + beauty social shopping site that connects bloggers with shoppers. Bloggers tag the items featured in their photos, making it easy for readers to shop a look.So what am I styling as part of the Who Wore It Best challenge? This Topshop crop top....more

Keep It Separate.

The Zara sale was quite fruitful for me. (When is it not?) This shorts suit is my fave from the haul. I love the almost-matching checked print, scuba material, and the wide ruffle at the hem. Coordinating separates are big right now, but I know I’ll dig these pieces broken up as part of other outfits as much as I like them matched together....more

Just Dandy.

Another day, another jumpsuit. This one from Dandy Boutique is a gem: strappy and backless, lightweight, all in a cool black and white tribal print. I paired it with gladiator flats and gold jewelry for an easy date night outfit, but I envision this jumpsuit working just as easily with a white strong-shouldered blazer for the office....more

Laser Cut.

Oui, Oui.

There’s something very French about basic blue stripes, no?This classic print gets a bit of an update when it comes in crop top form and paired with a quilted circle skirt + bright blue platform pumps. The best part? Both the top and skirt are by H&M and clock in at a combined total of $25. The top isn’t online anymore (check your local stores!) but the skirt is. Not a bad date night outfit, am I right?...more

Orange You Glad.

I’m all about oranges, corals, and neons this summer. Can’t seem to get enough (as evidenced here and here, and oh yeah, here)....more

Olympic Neon + The Vanity: TRIND.

If Jem (of Hologram fame) went dressed as an Olympic figure skater for Halloween, she would wear this dress. J.Lo totally wore this first (and better, truthfully, because homegirl’s body is crazy) on an episode of Idol, I believe. I had to have it because it was a) super affordable and b) super ridiculous. Also known as my fave fashion combo. Jem might call it outrageous, and I’d agree....more

Bright Tanks and Bralettes.

It’s patio season, that’s for sure. Nothing like sitting outside and enjoying the early summer sunshine with your friends + a few beverages.Two requirements for patio attire: cute and comfy. You’re bound to be in an Instagram shot or two, so looking put-together is a plus. But you also are subject to the sun and humidity (KC, you muggy little metropolis, you), so comfort is key. Loose-fitting, breezy, check, check, check....more

This Dress is Swell.

What did I say about the humidity and the size of my hair? It’s big here, guys. Prepare yourselves....more
