Aren't these just lovely?

I love scarves.
Sadly, I have way more scarves than I can wear, but I am just going to blame the Houston weather on that. These beautiful pieces by wrq.e.d. of London are a good example of scarves doubling as little masterpieces around your neck and making you feel like a walking gallery. Besides being great conversation starters, I could see these framed in one of my rooms and enjoying all the attention they deserve.


Between Now and Summer

Just some simple pieces I put together for one of those nonchalant days. I could easily live in blousey sheer tops like this one and of course my usual staples, skinnies and boots. Constantly chanting "less is more" because truthfully, my clothes rack could lean a lot less to the left. Is anyone else working on their spring cleaning?

Keeping It Real... Safe

A trip to the skatepark was just what I needed to get over feeling under the weather. I loved watching all the gutsy kids practicing their stunts while Bryan and I looked safely from the sidelines. My favorite moment of the day was seeing this tiny little guy try his hand at skateboarding. After my sad attempts at skiing earlier this year, I learned that kids really have no fear. Yes, I was quickly shown up by many a 5-year-olds on the bunny slopes. Fortunately for this kid, there's still hope. With a little more practice, he should be a pro in no time!


Mad About Plaid

I know I've said this before, but I do love me some plaid. It's as classic as stripes and comes in so many fun colorways. My eyes immediately honed in on this top when I was wholesale shopping in Thailand. The fun snap pockets and gorgeous color combo are what sold me. And a neat trick I like to do when I don't feel like tucking in my shirt is tying the ends. Yup. I like clothing that's easy.

As much as I love skinny jeans, I've become quite fond of flares and wide legs lately. I picked this one up at Anthropologie in the sale section. It was the only one left and just happened to be in my size. So naturally, I think it's meant to be. I love the pocket placement, and the denim has the perfect amount of stretch. Ahhh... I can't help but feel summer approaching. Spring never even stood in chance in Houston.


The Moon and The Stars

Although I don't normally gravitate towards girly tunics with star prints, I fell in love with this top after the girl at the shop suggested I try it on. Typical, right? I guess it was something about its silkiness and scattered celestial print that found its way into my heart. I'm not sure what the future holds for Vena Cava, but I was disheartened to hear that they may not be around for much longer.
The store buyer informed me that they were unable to purchase anything for the Spring season. Even the collections on their website only go up to Fall 2011, which I hope is only due to a lack of updating. Let's not dwell on a downer, but instead how awesome are these Sam Edelman's?

I tried on the black leather ones at Nordstrom about a year ago, but they looked really tough (like biker chic tuff), and I don't think that was the vibe I wanted to go for. Then, I saw that good ole' Gilt was having a flash sale on Sam Edelman shoes and nabbed this still tough but less "imgonnakillyou" suede taupe version at half the price. If you don't own any Sam Edelman's, their quality is really, really good. I would give these boots A+ for comfort, style, and material. The last pair I tried on were the light pink, fringe Louie boots before finally giving in to the IM Dickers. They were my absolute favorite pair of boots after trying other similar styles from different brands. Again, great quality and feel. I ended up returning them because of the fringe accents, but they definitely caught my attention.
