Daily Look: To the Mall

Shirt: Express // Skirt: H&M // Shoes: Me Too via Marshall's // Earrings: Banana Republic // Rings: Madewell // Watch: Seiko // Lips: Mary Kay Lip Gloss in Pink ParfaitConfession time: As much as I love shopping, I kind of hate going to the mall. It's not that I hate all malls--some are great--it's just that ours is perpetually crowded and hard to navigate, so I tend to avoid it. However, I've been doing a bonkers amount of online shopping this summer, and I ended up developing a stockpile of things that needed to be returned because they either didn't fit or I didn't end up liking them as much in person (this shirt, which I got for $12 at Express, was one of the keepers) ....more

Shirt: Loft // Jeans: Gap // Shoes: Taryn by Taryn Rose via DSW // Bag: Old Navy // Earrings: Target // Lips: MAC Girl About Town // Bracelets: Forever 21, Madewell // Rings: MadewellLast week, I attended a continuing education course at a local school where we were told to dress in layers to account for the chilly air conditioning. Each morning as I was getting ready, I'd suppress my urge to reach for a pair of shorts and open my jeans drawer instead. It was our hottest week of the year, so the walks to and from my car were sticky and uncomfortable, but I figured that was the price I'd have to pay to avoid 8 hours of shivering.Do you work somewhere with freezing air conditioning? ...more

Daily Look: One More Time

Dress: Gap // Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita via Nordstrom // Bag: Old Navy // Bracelets: Ann Taylor, Forever 21 // Rings: Madewell // Earrings: BCBGeneration via Lord and TaylorAs predicted, I've been getting a ton of use out of this eyelet shift dress. I like that it works just as well with sneakers as with sandals, and the best part is that it never seems to wrinkle. I pulled it out of my suitcase last week and it didn't even need to be ironed, so it was the natural choice when I needed something to wear out to dinner on Monday and I was running late ....more
