Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Scalloped striped shorts for the win!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Big fan of this sunny yellow look from Jessica! Now get me to Charleston!
  3. Love these simple fringed block heel sandals…but how do I choose between the three colors?!
  4. I fell in love with this Kate Spade coffee travel tumbler (even though The Husband said I didn’t need it), so I had to order it when it was 25% off during Macy’s sale (still going on). Isn’t it the cutest?!
  5. 50 “underrated” places (one for each state). I have to say, Indiana’s choice is verrrrry popular for being underrated, but it was still cool to see the picks!
  6. Can you even deal with this lemon skirt? Adorable and perfect for spring/summer events!
  7. This Heineken ad is 100% what we should all strive to be and is now my gold standard for future ads. 
  8. The cutest little strawberry graphic tee ever.
  9. Someone make me this DIY circle tote, so I can use it all summer along. Please and thank you.
  10. The plaid shirtdress of my dreams (now if we could get that price tag to go down)!

Parisian Biker Chic

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You know…because that’s a thing. That I just created…on this blog…where I am most definitely not Parisian nor a motorcycle biker.
  • And most people would debate you on the chic part too! ;)
  • This week flew by and I’m happy to be back into the swing of things at work (and not buried under emails after being out)!
  • This weekend we’re staying home, and I’m attempting to clean out my closet (or at least start the process). My side of the closet is slowwwllly starting to take over the whole closet.
  • We’re also going to our annual Halloween party! I’ll try to remember to share our costume on Instagram, but it is a secret until then!
  • Is anyone else dressing up for Halloween? Let me know what you are going as!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Utility First

As much as I love style, I love comfort and utility of clothing more.

For example, skirts should have pockets. Dresses should have pockets. Purses should have pockets. And coats, jackets, and vests should have endless pockets.

That’s why I love that utility-style or cargo-style vests remain in style. Perfect for slipping your cell phone or a pack of gum or your shopping list into and going hands free, but still managing to look pulled together and stylish.

Because as much as we say pain is beauty…it really should be utility is beauty. Except when it comes to cargo shorts…because those are awful! ;)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Block heels are back! I love this style of heel (see above for proof), since it is so much more stability for walking, and I’m a klutz! So yes, block heels forever, especially this cute pair from Gap that comes in 3 colors!
  2. Blogger love of the week: It should be a crime to look this pretty…so Indianapolis police, lock Sarah up! But seriously, I’ll be copying this outfit soon, because she just looks so effortless!
  3. Officially loving this windowpane/grid print fit and flare dress. Versatility for daaaaaaaays.
  4. I’m officially creeped out, Buzzfeed. Of course I had to take this “Guess Your Age” quiz about Target, and they creepily got my age right on the NOSE! But yes, I only use a basket, and I start in clothes first! Duh! ;)
  5. Dear J.Crew, let this cobalt skirt (and the khaki one) be just as good as they look online!
  6. Obsessing over every single pattern of these scarves. Like how do I choose?
  7. Another rendition of 10 pieces turned into 20 looks to take you from summer to fall! Dear more brands, do posts like this!
  8. I‘m all about the long vest trend, but I just can’t decide whether I can work it or not…but if I could, I would definitely be buying this beautiful tan trench-like one! So pretty!
  9. In addition to my obsession of watching the Olympics, I love reading about how they train and what they eat to stay in such peak form! Bon Appetit did a great round up (here) of a whole bunch of different athletes and their diet plans. 
  10. These snow leopard printed flats (in black and white) are puuuuurrrr-fect for fall. Puns for life. #sorrynotsorry

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I can’t wait to snag this ankle boots once the Nordstrom sales goes live to us Nordstrom Card-less peons! Now what color to get?!
  2. Blogger love of the week: As soon as I saw Nicole post an Instagram of this look, I knew it had to be my blogger love of the week link! How can you beat a perfectly summer outfit…with a floral skirt and pop-of-color red purse?! You can’t! ;)
  3. The Limited was having a “fashion frenzy” sale this past weekend, when everything was 60% off, so I ordered this blazer (holy Kate Middleton look-a-like) among some other items! Can’t wait to see how it looks on!
  4. Any movie that features Ryan Gosling singing and Emma Stone acting…is a movie for me! Can’t wait to see their new movie, La La Land, after seeing the trailer (here) last week!
  5. Old Navy has some of the best cardigans, and I’m already looking ahead to fall, so it only made sense that I ordered two different colors of this cardigan during the latest 40% off sale!
  6. It is unbelievable to me that fall is right around the corner and that fall collections are slowly coming out (mainly because it is so incredibly hot outside here in the Midwest), but I’d like to live in this outfit all fall long!
  7. I love this light-hearted take on how kids are just like astronauts navigating this planet!
  8. The prettiest silk scarf (for under $40) that I ever did see!
  9. Three cute ways to wear your white jeans this season (and bonus…you can bike in them all)!
  10. The whole Boden fall catalog that just arrived in my mailbox is dreamy. Like I want it all, but my favorite pieces have to be this striped dress, this spotted purse, and this polka dot sweatshirt.

ps. This is about as bohemian as you’ll ever see me! ;) And after wearing this dress as a maxi two different ways (see the first way here), I asked my mom to hem it for me, even though so many of you loved it this way! I just thought I would wear it more as a non-maxi, so the next time you see it, it’ll be above-the-knee!
