The fact that it takes me forever to wear something new is a huge reason I'm not that big on trends. I bought this high-low skirt way back in May when I was in Waikiki, and I didn't wear until Labor Day, not to mention I'm just now getting around to posting it #late. Anyway, I'm not really into the high-low thing anymore and I'm really considering taking it to my seamstress and making it one length...

a day at the races

I love horses, I love an excuse to dress up, we all know I love food (and mimosas), so it only makes sense that my first experience at the Turf Club at Golden Gate Fields was a fun one. I’ll be back, with more money to spend and win, and maybe even a hat.

wearing: f21 polka dot top (DRESS VERSION), urban outfitters skirt, zara heels, gifted MADEWELL SECRET HEART PENDANT NECKLACE, old navy & target arm candy,MICHAEL KORS TORTOISE SPORT WATCH

is it a dress?

Ummm, so I really don't know if this is a shirt or a dress. It looks like a dress in these pictures, but if you see it in person, it's kind of pushing the envelope, it's kind of thin and my uncertainty about it's intended use is why I've had it for almost a year and never wore it. Well, when trying to figure out what to wear to a club, a place I don't venture to often, I figured if there was ever an appropriate time to go out in public wearing a shirt as a dress, this would be it. So I went for it :) 

wearing:urban outfitters "dress", diesel heels, nordstrom necklace, target belt

back to school cool

When I think of typical back to school looks I think argyle, pleated skirts, and sweater vests (it’s the Catholic school girl in me) but for fall 2012, if you went into any classroom from preschool on up, what do you think is the big trend? Colored denim! I am done with school for the rest of my life…God willing, and I wore this on a day trip to Santa Cruz, but with the big tote, funky flats, and youthful colors, I could just as easily be headed to my first day of school.
How did/do people dress in your high school and college? I went to an all girl’s college (Spelman) and it was a fashion show for sure. Of course you had people who kept it casual, but a girl walking around in a LBD and 5 inch Prada pumps wasn’t exactly out of place…
