Blouse: Marshall's // Jeans: J. Crew // Shoes: Chinese Laundry via ModCloth // Earrings: Francesca's // Bracelet: Loft // Ring: Vintage
Hooray, more colorful jeans! I am making good progress toward my goal of having every color in the crayon box. I've been looking for a good deal on purple jeans for a while now, so I was super psyched when I found these on sale. Of course, I was supposed to just be going to the mall to make returns, but I couldn't help looking around a little bit. And really, who can resist a great deal?
What is on your wish list?

Top, Skirt, Bracelets: Ann Taylor // Shoes: Nine West // Earrings: Loft // Lips: MAC Girl About Town
While I bought this skirt months ago, this is the first time I've worn it. I left it in San Antonio after my last trip here because I was running out of room in my bag. I re-discovered it underneath a pile of pajamas in a drawer, and decided to take it for a spin. It wasn't intentional in the least, so I can't take any credit, but I really like the way the seams on this top lead into the seams on the skirt. It's fashion magic, I say!
Have you ever found a piece of clothing you had forgotten about deep in your closet or drawers? If not, I highly recommend it.

Shirt: Loft // Skirt: American Apparel // Shoes: Soft via DSW // Earrings: Francesca's // Rings: Vintage
Skirt plus chambray shirt is kind of my go-to outfit. It's dressy enough for work, casual enough for the weekend, and always makes me feel put together. Of course, when you start wearing the same thing over and over, you are in danger of becoming awfully boring. To avoid that sorry fate, I decided to up the ante with shoes and accessories. My mom's beautiful rings that she recently gave me, plus my snazzy new patterned wedges really breathed new life into this otherwise basic outfit. Now that it feels special again, hopefully no one will notice when I wear almost the same thing next week!
How do you make your more basic outfits special?

Shirt, Jeans: Gap // Shoes: Taryn by Taryn Rose via DSW // Earrings, Bracelet: Banana Republic // Necklace: Urban Outfitters // Nails: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Coral Reef // Lips: MAC Peach Blossom
While it isn't a color combination I wear particularly often, I really love the way pink and navy look together. It's a little bit girly and a little bit preppy, so I paired it with a spiky necklace to add a little bit more edge. PS, I'm growing my hair out for the summer so that I can wear it up off my neck (because I'm back in Texas y'all!), but it's driving me crazy, so I'm looking for some new ways to wear it. Any ideas?
What are some of your favorite color combinations? And do you wear your hair short, long, or medium during the summer?

Blouse: H&M // Jeans: J. Crew // Shoes: BCBG via Endless // Bracelets: Loft // Earrings: Gift
I wore these bright jeans and lacy blouse for a trip to HomeGoods. Lauren and I had never been there before, but we have seen the error of our ways. Lauren excitedly told me that it was her new favorite store multiple times on our first trip, which was followed by our second trip the next day, and our third the day after that! At this rate, we'll be on a first-name basis with the staff by Wednesday.
What is your favorite store?

Dress: H&M // Shoes: GoMax via Ella Blue // Earrings: Loft // Hairband: Sephora // Lips: Milani Rose Hip
Today was a hot, humid, day, so I wore a tropical dress to match. Okay, I actually picked the dress because it's cool, cute, and comfortable, which is essential when braving nearly 100-degree temperatures. I love that this dress feels like a giant comfy t-shirt but looks like I actually put some thought into it (even if I didn't).
What do you throw on when you can't be bothered to think too hard but want to look like you did?

The temperature is rising quickly, so I'm starting to think about what to wear to the pool this summer. While I haven't owned a one-piece since my days on the neighborhood swim team, I have been seeing some super cute ones over the past few years. They've really moved from swimwear for the dowdy, to adorable, and sometimes (dare I say it?) downright sexy. I am considering a return to the one-piece, although, I would need to score a pretty great deal. These babies get pricey!
