Summer Fresh






In the summer I love feeling light and airy especially when it's so hot, so this dress (which i actually wore to my graduation) is perfect. When summer dress shopping look for light cottons and linen. Yes ok linen wrinkles get over it, it looks great in a relaxed summer sort of way, its stress free. Also look for interesting prints and bold color combined with white white such as this green and white or perhaps this coral number from jcrew.com.

Happy Summer!


Love at First Sight

As soon as I saw this I called my mom and said, "You know that feel you get when you see a new Longchamp your in love with?" and she new exactly what I meant. We just got this cape in a Twist the other day and I am in LOVE! I gasped when I saw it.

Thats when you know you need it in your closet, rationality aside, if you find a garment that makes your heart melt it becomes a need and not a want.

If you love what you buy, you will wear it all the time.

Fear No Color



In this heat the last thing i want to wear are pants or jeans of anytype so i'm living in skirts and dresses right now. This combo i wore to work the other day and i'm feeling the contrasting color, the skirt and tank are from H&M. I'm wearing it with purple patent peep toes from Target, although you can't see them and turquoise flowerin earrings I got on sale at Banana Republic.
It's all about brights this summer especially bold combos, so i'm definetly living in color this season.
On another note, i've gotten sucked into the Twitter buzz and you can read my tweets at www.twitter.com/thatshopgirl sorry for the extended abscence, but it was finals and now im back in business!
