Hey Hey! It's National Coffee Day!


Today is #NationalCoffeeDay! So you know what that means? A bunch of different coffee shops are giving away FREE CUPS OF COFFEE. I'd already made a Starbucks run this morning before reading anything about this (I really wanted a latte and cheese danish) so it's too late for me :( but maybe not for you! Go get your free coffee now! And if you're a huge coffee fan like me, show your coffee pride with one of the stylish coffee tees below:

My SCANDAL Premier Red Wine Suggestions...

In honor of Scandal's Season 4 premier (!!!) and Olivia Pope's ongoing love affair with a glass of red wine, I thought I'd share some of the yummy red wines that we've enjoyed recently. And these are all wines you can find in your local Trader Joe's or grocery store. Sometimes I'll do a short description or review on my Instagram. Check them out below! Click "View on Instagram" for more info. We'll be trying a new red tonight, how about you?

We'll Be Rocking Gingham in Spring Summer 2015...

Did you guys notice how prevalent, how frequent, how predominant (Somebody's been Googling synonyms, lol - You. Yeah, so? - Me) gingham was on the Spring/Summer 2015 NYFW runways? I for one, couldn't get enough of it! So many designers showed off fabulous silhouettes in this checked fabric. Which got me thinking. Thinking about reworking some gingham that I already had. I am loving full skirts right now, I think I may have mentioned that once or twice. Anyhoo, I thought my DIY gingham dress would be the perfect project to chop up and remake an on trend Spring/Summer gingham look, a full skirt perhaps? Well guess what? It's already in the works! I started working on it a few weeks ago, all I have left to do is to finish serging my waistband and put in the zipper. I could have finished it a while ago, but I really take my time when I sew... I think that sounds better than "I've been procrastinating on my sewing" but anyway, I promise to show you what it looks like when I'm done! Stay tuned....


Hip Look of the Day: Moto Jacket, Cropped Tee & Printed Skirt...

This beauty was spotted at Milan Fashion Week SS14 and OMG, how head to toe fly is she?! And I am so here for a full skirt right now, because full skirts are and always have been the epitome of femininity and elegance! AND, no one can tell whether or not your thighs are rubbing. WINNING.

Ladies Love the SAINTS!!!

Let me just say first that I love the New Orleans Saints. Not ALL of football, but THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS. Even though NFL leadership, on serious issues is pretty pathetic and embarrassing right now, I still have love for my team. Then I saw THIS HEADLINE which really had me feeling some kinda way :( It's tough to know how to feel right now as a lady fan of an NFL team. But I'd love to know what you guys think...

OUTFIT SHOPPING: All Black Everythang...

Click the pic to shop similar looks
When I first spotted this outfit on Pinterest, I thought to myself, "this is all black done RIGHT." Black already comes across as more formal, so you can't beat black if you need to dress up for something but you don't have to go all black tie formal. I think this outfit is perfect as a casual dressy cocktail look, it could be normal workday attire or perfect for business casual. It's also a cool look for date night at a froufrou restaurant. I just think it works. Browse and shop similar looks to the fab one above below (click the arrow to scroll each look).

Fall Style: The Denim Shirt Dress...

If you're completely over this Summer heat and SO ready for Fall like me, then you're already browsing cute clothes to transition into the (cooler!) season. Well look no further, because a cool and casual denim shirt dress will transition nicely from warmer to cooler temps. No need to pack away this timeless staple, just add a scarf, a cute boot and you're ready to go hay riding or apple picking! Or you'll simply be ready to go run a few errands. But hey, you'll be CUTE in your denim shirt dress while you're doing it! Shop similar denim shirt dresses below (click right arrow to scroll each look)

TRAVEL: Autumn in Paris, A 2014 Guide...


About a week ago, I had the most vivid dream that I was in Paris. The weather was gorgeous there and just as I was basking and twirling and giddy that I was in this beautiful city.. I woke up :( BUT! I fell asleep again and my dream picked up right where it left off! I awoke once more and it happened all over again. I was right back in Paris in the same dream. So what does all this mean exactly? That I need to plan my first trip to Paris and SOON. Couple that with my absolute love for FALL! Because I really think Fall is the time of year I'd like to travel there. So great news for any of you traveling to Paris this Fall! Because here's a Fall 2014 Guide to the city of Paris. You're welcome.
