Outfit Details:  Top – Nasty Gal , Necklace – Forever 21, Boyfriend Jeans – Old Navy (lusting big time over THESE ), Wedges – Payless (my eye is on THIS cute, chic and affordable pair right now), Bag – Express, Aviator Sunnies – ASOS , Bracelets – Forever 21

 

Yes,  summer is almost over. I definitely won’t miss the triple digit temps or the humidity. What I will miss is getting to sport great summer looks like the above.  A delicate  sleeveless blouse, a great pair of boyfriend jeans and a pair of wedges – the perfect “summer uniform” in my opinion.

While I definitely plan on “working” my boyfriend jeans for fall, I will definitely be missing great wedges and fantastic tops like the one I’m wearing here. When I saw this top on the Nasty Gal website I was in LOOOVE ! It’s delicate and “all business” in the front, but is ” a party in the back” with a sexy open back.  In other news, I’m loving my new aviator sunnies from ASOS!  Know what? They actually make me think of  THIS SONG  (I can hear you laughing at the lameness of my joke here…..oh well! )    😉

What pieces from your summer wardrobe will you miss this fall?

Saturday evening was spent grabbing drinks with girlfriends at one of my favorite restaurants in Tulsa, The Blue Rose Cafe. What is so great about this place is it has an AWESOME outdoor patio area, a great outdoor bar and an even more amazing view overlooking the Arkansas River. By the time we got to the restaurant it was was sunset and the view was breathtaking. Before dinner and drinks we stopped down by the river docks to take in the view and beautiful sunset.  I decided to take advantage of this amazing backdrop and snap a few pics!

I decided to take my new boyfriend jeans out for a spin.  If I were told to name the perfect pair of jeans for summer, these would be it! Boyfriend jeans not only are crazy comfortable, but with their distressed look, are so easy to style. They add a great edge to a more feminine look and are an essential element to any great “casual chic” look.  You can wear them with heels, a great wedge or even flats and you’ll always look great! Boyfriend jeans are definitely and always will be an essential staple in my wardrobe!

How do you like to rock boyfriend jeans?

Outfit Details: Top – Forever21 (these are some cute stripes TOO), Necklace – The Limited, Ring – Forever21 (Obsessing over this ONE !), Skinny Jeans – Old Navy, Bracelets – Forever21, Sunnies – Michael Kors (these add a bit of sexy flair), Wedges – Steve Madden, Nails – Essie “Cute as a Button” & “Play Date”

 

Let me tell you a story. There once was a necklace, a necklace like no other. It was full of sparkle, had a funky edge and was  incredibly unique. One day it came into the sight of a girl; a girl who LOVES accessories —- to say the very least. When this girl’s sight came upon this necklace in all it’s awesomeness and funkiness, she zoomed in on it and grabbed it quicker than…well…I don’t know what (insert you own sarcastic comment here); let’s just say it was CRAZY ass fast!  😉

All was well with the world again.

This necklace, as you can see above, is my latest find from The Limited. I can’t say enough about this necklace and how much I love it. It literally seems to go with EVERYTHING in my closet.  Definitely expect to see this piece make an appearance in many more an outfit post here on the blog. I can’t wait to find an entirely new and different way to style it! Stay tuned!

 

Do you have a statement piece that you are obsessed with?

Outfit Details:  Shirt – Mossimo (fabulous option here I’ve been lusting over lately), Denim Shorts – DIY (also REALLY want these too),  Shoes – ASOS, Bracelets – Forever 21 (another awesome option here), Rings – The Limited, Sunnies – Steve Madden (these do the job too)

 

Remember when you were a kid and running through the sprinklers during the summer? It was simple fun, but oh so satisfying, especially during the sweltering heat. Well, a park downtown in my city has a “version” of this so to speak and I have to say – it took every ounce of will power I had not to run through the water myself,  as this particular day, it was 105 degrees! This downtown “water attraction” also kind of reminded me of Centennial Olympic park in downtown Atlanta (my hometown), where there is a whole section of the park full of little “water spouts” and if you’re a kid, it is THE PLACE TO BE during the summer.

Childhood summer memories aside, on a day that was as hot as this Saturday was, nothing will do except for minimal clothing, i.e. shorts and a sleeveless shirt. I decided to pull out one of my favorite mint flowy tops and pair it with a pair of denim shorts (my own and very first DIY project) . I then decided to add that essential bit of “glam”  and polish my look  with my favorite pair of metallic silver mary jane wedges from ASOS ( these babies have been getting a great run on the blog lately – seen here , here and here) and a little bit of wrist candy.

How are you “beating the heat” fashionably?

OK, I really want you to put your “thinking caps” on now.  Judging from the title of this post, take a wild guess what I did this weekend? Come on now….think really, really hard.

Birthday Girl

So, I took the “big plunge” this weekend; I turned 30! OMG! I’ve been dreading this for a little while now, so when the day rolled around, I decided to take it with stride and continue on and be fabulous! This is definitely a new direction and era in my life and I’m ready to take it on!

Summer Statement

 

Fashion to me is all about taking risks and making a statement; expressing yourself. Well, this day I decided to definitely make a statement of my own with this ensemble in a few different ways.  Technically summer isn’t officially here yet (at least chronologically), but I don’t care! I’m still making a “summer statement” here!

Life Goes On

Life goes on. Life goes on……

These few words have been drumming through my head lately over the past few days.  I’ve been through an emotional roller coaster as of late and it’s really been starting to drag me down. What happened you ask? Well, let’s just say that I’ve been forced to make some unexpected decisions career-wise that I didn’t expect or see coming. Major Bummer! But alas, like the Beatles song says, Life goes on.
