Spied: Forever 21 goes Maternity

Today I got an email from Forever 21, proclaiming the deals you'll find at their Fourth of July sale {the discounts for the sale are great, make sure to check it out}. In the teeny tiny bottom corner they mentioned Love 21's new maternity line. Can I just tell you how excited I was? Really excited.

It seems like a natural progression from teen clothes to plus size clothes to grown up friendly clothes to this. I am most excited about the price points, especially the pants. If I can find a pair of maternity skinny jeans for less than $15, I am going to be so stoked.

The line is pretty small right now, but I spotted this top and dug it instantly.

Striped Jersey Knit Maternity Top - Forever 21 - $10.80

What do you guys think of the top? How about Forever 21's choice to carry a maternity line?

Inspired: Anthropologie (Lime + Frond)

Summer is my favorite time to wear skirts and dresses, they are a great option for staying cool while keeping covered. Anthropologie has had this idea in mind with their latest batch of outfits. I love this one with a bright pop of color on the skirt.


Here is my take:

Dreamweight Ruffled-Neck Tee - Express - $24.90 {if you want a sleeveless option, I found this}
Silk Rose Hair Clip - Forever 21 - $2.50 (for a set of 2)
Floral Scallop Metal Cuff - Forever 21 - $5.80
Acacia Strappy Wedge Sling - Payless Shoesource - $11.00 (Orig. $26.99)
Summertime Skirt - DownEast Basics - $29.99
TOTAL: $74.19

What do you think of this look? Would you pair these items together?

EVO Wrap Up

As I mentioned last week, I had the incredible opportunity to attend EVO (the evolution of women and social media conference). I am so grateful to Avery for sponsoring my admission. I had the chance to get to know 8 other ladies who were also in the Avery crew.

Melissa | Stephanie | Rachel | Amy | Emily | Alma | Michelle | Kristina

We had the opportunity to attend so many wonderful keynote addresses, seminars, and meals. I took in so much information that it's hard to talk about it all. I think the message that most resonated with me was that of blogging authentically {Stephanie posted some wonderful thoughts on this}. I honestly think that this conference has made a lasting impression and will definitely impact how I blog from here on out.

Melissa (who I roomed with and talked with more than I thought possible in the 2 days we were there) was kind enough to take an outfit pic of me on the final day (as well as let me borrow her sweater when I stained my top).

{downeast basics cardigan - borrowed, chambray skirt - i made it {tutorial 1 + tutorial 2}, shoes - payless}

Spied: Forever 21 Bow Cardigan

I spotted this sweater yesterday and fell in love. It reminds me a bit of this Ann Taylor sweater I posted about a few months ago.

Drawstring Knit Cardigan - Forever 21 - $24.80

Is this something you would wear?

EVO 2010


Hey Guys-

I am currently up at EVO in Park City, thanks to my sponsor Avery. They set a few of us bloggers up in the suite at the Canyons resort. I couldn't be more stoked to be here.

I am fairly disconnected right now, as I am not cool enough to have an iPhone. But I wanted to let you know about this sale:

Reader Request: Denim Shorts

Recently, I got a request from Erika,

I was wondering if you had any good sources for some cute knee length denim shorts. I've seen some cute ones that look like cut-off jeans, but are more finished looking. Any ideas? Thanks!


Shorts are everywhere this season! Knee length shorts... not so much. I found a few pairs that were close to knee length, but only one that really hit the mark:

Denim Short - Shade - $34.00 (Orig. $42.50)

These shade shorts are currently on sale for 20% off. I love the slim shape and dark wash.

What do you guys think? Are they something you would wear?

Shabby Apple Giveaway

Shabby Apple was kind enough to send me their Bugle Boy dress to review. And it's such a great dress! It's fully lined, has pockets and is sturdy enough to stand the test of time.

{I would have taken a picture but my brother is holding my Canon hostage (ok, so he's borrowing it) and the cheapo point and shoot we have is just not doing the job.}

Lovely Images

Sometimes, I just don't have a fashion post in me.

I have, however, been incredibly inspired by some interior images lately. My husband and I have been looking at buying a little run down bungalow (and by rundown, I mean in the saddest state I have ever seen) and it's raw potential is actually very inspiring. Now, all I want to do is stare at beautiful interiors all day long.






What's inspiring you lately?

What do you think? Is this something you would wear?

Spied: Striped Cabana Dress

I saw this dress a few months ago and it has been in the back of my mind ever since. I think the stripes are too cute (of course I do), and for once it hits at the knee (at least for us petite ladies).

Did you see Liz's bow skirt? I am so in love with everything about it.

Have you checked out Susan's latest bags? I need one.

Some great tips on how to easily add color to a neutral wardrobe.

Have you seen Shade's latest style guide? There are a few outfits I want to snatch right off the model's back.

Also, my new favorite blog is THX THX THX. You've got to read it.


I have a busy weekend ahead of me. Putting on a church BBQ tonight and doing the Father's Day shuffle. What are all you up to? Whatever it is, I hope it's fabulous.

Friday Wishlist: Ann Taylor White Skinnies

White pants. Most people have an immediate and determined reaction to these. Last summer, I wore a pair of white sailor pants to work and a coworker said, "White pants, huh? That's brave." I don't think they are brave, I think they are fabulous.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of white skinnies this spring, and have been thus far disappointed. I had an epiphany, I have got to buy these at a truly adult store. Any pairs I have found in the juniors department have entirely too much stretch and for some reason are always distressed.

I spotted this pair in the sale section at Ann Taylor, after an email told me about new mark downs.

 White Denim Modern Skinny Jeans - Ann Taylor - $59.99 (Orig. $88.00)

What do you guys think of white pants? Would you wear these? What's your fashion dream this week?

Outfit Under 100 (Muted Sparkle)

I spied this sequin tank at JCPenney this week (is anyone else shocked at all the good stuff at JCP lately?). I loved the muted color and it reminds me of this J.Crew sequin tank (at 1/5 of the price tag). I decided to pull at outfit together around it.

I 'Heart' Ronson Sequin Tank - JCPenney - $21.99 (Orig. $44.00)
Lightweight Twisted-Front Cardigan - Old Navy - $20 (Orig. $26.50)
Skinny Flood - White - Levi's - $29.90 (Orig. $59.50)
Merona Maire Peep Toe Wedges - Target - $24.99
TOTAL: $96.88

What do you guys think of the sequin top? Is this outfit something you would wear?

Look for Less: Anthro Puckered Eyelet Jacket

I have been coveting this blazer from Anthro since it popped up on the website. I happened upon a similar find at JCP last week and thought it was worth posting.

Puckered Eyelet Jacket - Anthropologie - $118.00
American Living Lucernce Jacket - JCPenney - $31.99 (Orig. $80.00)

The JCP option is missing the eyelet texture, but it's a great option in weight and shape. I think this would look adorable with just about everything this summer.

What do you think? Is this something you would wear?

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!

Look for Less: Anthro Wee Flower Pot Posts

I was perusing Anthro's jewelry section and boy was I pleasantly surprised. I found these posts that are a dead ringer for Erica's earrings I gave away just last week.

Wee Flower Pot Posts - Anthropologie $24.00
Beauty Rose Earrnings in Pearly Cream - 28th Street Photo & Gift - $12.00

What do you think? A dead ringer, no?

Thanks for reading,

Look for Less: Anthro Winding Road Tank

I have spotted quite a few Anthropologie look-a-likes lately. I decided to post Anthro looks for less all day!

I was considering making this shirt like Suzannah, but finding this F21 version last week changed my plans.

Winding Road Tank - Anthropologie - $48.00
Wave Pleated Accent Top - Forever 21 - $15.80

What do you think? Were you eyeing this top? Leave a comment!
