Festival Fashion

Posted April 16, 2014 | 4 Awesome Comments

Coachella was last weekend. Lollapalooza is quickly approaching. Austin City Limits is on the calendar. And I can think of nothing worse than a music festival.

I know, I know. I’m a Debbie downer. A stick in the mud. A wet rag. But we all know I’m not an outdoor girl if it doesn’t involve drink service, cool water (a pool or ocean, I’m not picky) and a good book. Especially not when it’s 110 degrees and there are thousands of people in attendance.

But let’s pretend for a moment that I am a festival person. This would be my festival fashion pick. Comfy, basic, and by all measures, pretty reserved compared to most of the festival fashion I’ve seen.

You clearly wouldn’t find me moshing.  (Is that still a thing the kids do??)

Festival FashionLucky floppy hat $49.50
Ray-Ban Retro Cats 1000 $140
Old Navy embroidered tank $17
Printed Village antelope scarf $38
Milly Dylan tote $495
GAP boyfriend short $49.95
wood tassel beaded bracelets $26 each
Birkenstock Catania $120

Worthy of the Week

Posted April 11, 2014 | 8 Awesome Comments

It’s time for Worthy of the Week! A collection of some of my favorite stories, recipes, fashions, and random links from around the web this week. Read something fabulous lately? Share your favorite links in the comments!

Wrothy of the Week

Worthy of the Week

Book of the Week

Just under 500 pages and geared towards kids ages 8-12, The Thickety misses its mark as a middle grade adventure, but is quite satisfying as a dark YA thriller. It starts with a young girl being kidnapped and quickly expands into a story of witchcraft, magic, and shunning.

The book doesn’t publish until May 6th, but I have an advanced reader copy — call dibs if you want it!

April Showers (mean super cute umbrellas)

Posted April 9, 2014 | 4 Awesome Comments

Sometimes, you just need a good rainy day to lounge around in your stretchy pants, read a book that’s been on your nightstand for ages, and catch up on TV on DVD while cuddling with your pet. That may sound dreamy, but the reality is that torrential rains usually come when you’ve neglected to check the weather and you’re dressed for an interview or have a mile long list of errands to run.

We all know those $5 drugstore umbrellas that we buy in a pinch don’t survive more than a drizzle and a light breeze, so it’s time to take control of our preparedness and upgrade to something sturdier. A pocket size version is the more practical way to go, but I can’t help but love cane umbrellas; either way, you don’t have to compromise on cute to stay dry and these cute umbrellas are proof.

Cute Umbrellas1. Hunter walking umbrella $48
2. Jonathan Adler hexagon umbrella $30
3. polka dot umbrella $14
4. Orla Kiely tulip umbrella $47
5. London Undercover camo umbrella $182
6. Kate Spade geek glasses umbrella $58
7. duckhead umbralla $24
8. Cath Kidston tiny folding umbrella $44
9. raining cats and dogs $32
10. leopard print umbrella $28

Sweet scallops are the name of the game this spring. First appearing on the runway with Valentino Fall 2013 and now popping up at your favorite retailers in pastel hues, they’re the perfect ladylike addition to your wardrobe.

I’d say they’re a bit out of character for me, but I’m still smitten. Do you love, or are they a little too sugary sweet for you?
