Little White Lies.

There are school buses chugging around my neighborhood and “Back to School” banners everywhere– a sure sign fall weather will be here before we know it. So get your little white dresses in while you can, ladies, because summer is winding down.Not that I’m opposed to bending that “no white after Labor Day” rule, but the short white cocktail dresses in summer-weight fabrics should likely take a backseat to heavier, more seasonably-appropriate winter white once the fall settles in....more

Summer Adjacent.

These Swell tie-dye shorts would be a perfect cover-up over a pair of bikini bottoms, no? Maybe with a slim leather flip flop, a triangle top, and a super thin tee. Classic surfer summer style....more

Romper Room.

Really easy date night/girl’s night outfit: a romper dressed up with platform sandals. A polka dot print, split back, and gold jewelry ups the fashion ante a bit.I love how lightweight this romper is; totally cool enough for an August evening. That split back provided great ventilation, too– I dig functional fashion....more

Short Suited.

Shorts + pumps are sorta my thing. And I rarely turn down a good blazer, especially when they come with the sleeves pre-scrunched. (I’m like the Kansas City girl version of Miami Vice.)Separates are a trend I’ve been working into my wardrobe lately, as is orange in all its forms– so imagine my delight when I came across this coral shorts suit from Victoria’s Secret....more

Birks, Baby.

The 90′s are back– or did they ever leave? All I know is the Backstreet Boys are still touring (love!) and you can now find Birkenstocks on every department store shelf....more

Coming Up Roses.

Sleeves in late July? Not normally.But I’ll make an exception for this dress.When Swell sent me this dark floral number, the boho vibe caused me to immediately picture wearing it with tall leather boots usually reserved for fall. Bridget Bardot in the ‘burbs, or something like that....more

Summer of Orange: Sheer Top + Fluted Orange Skirt (on Super Sale!)

It’s the Summer of Orange, I swear. It’s all I’m wearing these days, guys. I’m sorry…? Nah, not really. I love this color, especially when it comes in neon form. Means not only do I stand out in a crowd, but I also can earn some extra cash directing street traffic. ...more
My children love orange. I've had to defend their wearing it to my mother. She's learned to keep ...more

Shark Bite Shorts.

I’m a Kansas City girl through and through, but I was actually born in California. And while laid-back surfer girl doesn’t exactly describe my personality, I can hint at it when my hair is left to its own beachy devices and I put on a pair of destroyed denim cutoffs....more

A good summer dress makes me happy. (Who says I’m hard to please?)...more

Ice Cream Paint Job.

Super cutesy pieces aren’t usually my thing, but I couldn’t say no to this ice cream printed romper. (Totally thought it was a dress on the rack; romper discovery made in dressing room.) It’s quintessential summer!...more
