Party Animals







Dress and Shoes: F21, Scarf: Gift, Flower: DIY, Purse: Kate Landry, Sweater: Tilly's, Jewelry: F21, c/o Mimi's, Guess, T and Co., Lips: Ulta Baby Doll Pink, Nails: NYC Polyester Pink

We shut down Fun Station last night. Oh yeah. I just said that. We can play putt putt golf like there's no tomorrow. And I kinda stink at it. But really, I've been completely MIA for the past two days and it isn't because I've forgotten you lovelies or am trying to neglect you. You see, this whole law school thing turns out to be far more social than I would've imagined. I'm talkin' minimum of 3 parties or socials per week. Like whoa. Plus the fact that, well, I'm in law school. So it's been right busy 'round here. Cookie baking with the girls on Wednesday, acting like a 7-year-old at Fun Station last night, football cookout tomorrow. I think I need a nap. You should take one two. Because those are kind of really nice.

Happy Friday!

Risky Business






Shirt: Dusty's (Express Men), Shorts: l.e.i., Socks: Target, Shoes: Nine West, Vest: Belk, Shades: F21, Jewelry: T and Co., F21, Movado, Premier, c/o Mimi's, Bag: Vintage Gucci, Nails: Ulta (Wild Night), Lips: Ulta (Baby Doll Pink)

On two counts. One: This outfit totally made me want to do some floor sliding. Big button-up+tall socks+sunglasses makes you want to do that too, no? Maybe it's my gut telling me I should have stuck with Tom Cruise for my Halloween costume this year. Two: This shirt was stolen. Or maybe it was borrowed. I'm not sure what qualifies as stealing. I'm not taking Criminal Law yet. All of mine were dirty though, so Dusty's closet was the next logical extension. Plus: it was super comfy and it smelled nice.

By the way, go put some socks on and do a little slide across your floor. Like now. Promise it'll make ya feel better!

Oh, hello Monday...What did you do with my weekend


Sweater and Shoes: Target, Long-sleeved tee: J. Crew, Jeans: Old Navy, Bow: DIY, Bag: Hand-me-down Chanel, Glasses: c/o Karen Kane, Belt: Gap, Jewelry: F21, Guess, T and Co., Movado, c/o Mimi's

Officially the. Shortest. Weekend. Ever. I think it is the impeding realization that I have my first memo due on Friday. Twelve pages. Right then. I'll just go bang those out. On top of that, my upper lip decided to be just lovely today and swell to twice its size on the left side with a blemish. Awesome. And you can't cover that one up with a hair-in-the-face-do either. I decided glasses and a massive bow on my head might detract the attention a bit. I must take a moment to brag though. I warned Dusty that my horns would be coming out this week with all the work I have to do. {horns=those mean-looking things that pop out of the sides of my head when I stress} He responded by packing me lunch to pick up on the way to class this morning, complete with pumpkin Little Debbie treats and "I love you" on the baggies. Cue the awwwwwwww. And on top of that, he insisted on helping me with my laundry. Really insisted. I know, I know. How could I ever complain about anything after that. Love him!

Alrighty, back to it...let the procrastination begin.



P.S. (Is the whole white after Labor Day bit blowing anyone's mind? I saw the idea in J.Crew's catalogue and just couldn't sleep well 'till I'd tried it!

Happy fall..................y'all






Boots: Madden Girl, Trench, Sweater, Scarf: F21, Socks: Target, Skirt, Ann Taylor, Bag: Gucci

I just couldn't help myself on that one. If any of you are experiencing the "real deal" fall right now, would you mind sending some my way? That would be fabulous, thanks. I got asked in class yesterday when fall gets here. Prompt response: the leaves turn for about a day or two in November, but pay attention, else you might miss it. I'll admit, this whole nice in the morning, hot by noon is quite the tease. And every now and then, Tallahassee will throw a cool day in there just to wag a finger at us. Dear October, will you bring in some yellow and orange to us please? If not, well, I'll just pretend. I'm talkin' hot cocoa, apple cider, cinnamon candles, candied apples, pumpkin Little Debbies, turnin' down the AC and wrapping a fuzzy scarf around my neck, and strutin' the boots like nobody's business. Pretend. That'll show fall.

Any signs where you are? Happy {first fall!} weekend!



Thursday, September 22, 2011 suede shoes probably weren't the best idea






Button-up: JC Penny, Sweater: NY and Co., Jeggings: Old Navy, Shoes: UO, Bag: c/o Shop Kempt, Watch and Bracelet: c/o Mimi's, Nails: Sinful Colors {Boom Boom}, Lips: Ulta {Baby Doll}

So. I knew it was going to rain today. But yesterday, in all of my preparedness with boots and trench coat and umbrella, it didn't shed a drop. So I suppose I thought I'd wag my finger at it and let. me. tell. you. that weather showed me. I got to campus this morning amid the mad traffic rush and had an emergency gotta go right now bathroom attack. Yup, my bladder can't even make it the whole commute to class. So I'm downright squirming through the last few redlights, murmering to myself in some incomprehensible language and no doubt terrifying the passengers in cars beside me. By the time I made it to the parking lot, I bolted it from the car. Dirt lot, steep hill, rain. Fun. I'm sure I was quite the sight making my way to the law building, my wobbly, high-heeled legs trying their best to cross and hold it all in. Of course, I couldn't hold myself because (1) My hands were filled with ginormous law books (2) I was trying to hold the umbrella over my head and (3) I'm pretty sure that gesture is socially inappropriate at my age. Sometimes the temptation to revert back to toddlerhood is just too strong. Needless to say, my suede heels could use a little lovin' right now. Any ideas for cleaning those puppies up?

The story of two really bad tailgaters






Button-up and shoes: Gap, Sweater: Gift from mommy-Belk, Brooch: Gift, Jeggings: Wal-Mart, Hair bow: DIY, Necklace: Thrifted, Watch and Bracelets: c/o Mimi's, Other Bracelets and earrings: F21 and Premier

So, Saturday. We decided, or rather I decided, that we were going to give the whole tailgating thing a go. After four and a half years of dating, in which we (my football lourvinnnggg beau and I) have never been. Not once. Naturally we choose one of the biggest games of the season. Because go big or go home is kinda our style. Right. And in this case, we ended up doing option B. Point A: the law school. We find that everyone has tuckered out due to the fact that they started at approximately 9am for an 8pm game. Point B: tent city. We stand in line for approximately 209437255 billion minutes for Dusty to use the potty and decide we are definitely in lot 14 (wrong lot), not lot 9 (right lot). Point C: we ask a stranger because there is zero phone service to look up a map of tailgating lots, amid mass chaos in the miagration of the crowd to the stadium (three hours to game time{??}) and are directed to lot 8. I lose it on the way to lot 8 (which, turns out, was fortunate because lot 8 is NOwhere near lot 9) and turn into a five-year-old, "imahottiredhungrysweatywantsomewingsandanapwouldbegood." Dusty is happy to oblige because we are missing his team's game to be there in the first place. We ended up falling asleep at half-time, bellies stuffed with hot wings and fries, on the couch. Lessons learned: We are officially 20-something going on 80, Dusty probably shouldn't wear the archrival's shirt when tailgating, people our age officially stink at the food part of the bought does not = adequate tailgate food, when you get that many 20-somethings together in one place, cell phone towers shut down, Wingstop fries are so boss, football naps really are the best.

I'll probably be up 'till midnight...thank you J.Crew





Maxi worn as skirt, Shirt, belt: F21, Blazer: Gap, Shoes: Nine West, Bag: Chanel, Jewelry: Movado, F21, Guess, T and Co., c/o Mimi's, Mariana

If Dusty is reading this: I know, I know...but the reading for classes won't wait and I can't sleep tonight knowing the newest J.Crew is sitting on my nightstand, not yet devoured.

That guy is a stickler for going to bed early.

I actually received both J.Crew and Country Living in the mail today {judge away}. Ooonnn my biggest reading day for class. Imagine my distraught and the inner battle that took place in my brain to put down fashion and home decor for adverse possession and legal writing. Physical pain. Dear nice people at J. Crew, next time, could you have my magazine arrive on a Friday? Oh and while you're at it, I'll take one of those delectible wool coats. {I may have snuck just a peek!}

Hope your Monday was fabulous! And if not, well, grab your little self a bowl of ice cream {preferably with chocolate syrup} and don't feel the least bit guilty about it.

Ladies who lunch





Skirt: Belk, Shirt: Old Navy, Sweater: F21, Shoes: Old Navy, Laces: Payless, Belt: Thrifted, Scarf: Gift, Bag: Chanel, Nails: Sinful Colors {Vacation Time}, Lips: NYX {circle}, Jewelry: c/o Mimi's the Look, DIY, Gift, F21

Aparently I am now one of these. But don't worry, I won't be transitioning to wearing only tennis clothes and driving a mini van any time soon. Because I don't even play tennis. And, well, parking anything larger than my Honda Accord would be fundamentally un-pretty. Anywho, all of the law school ladies decided to go out to lunch together at the Crepe Vine yesterday. I am wishing I had gone with a crepe at the moment. Actually I could do with one right now. I'm feeling a bit munchie. This place was seriously incredible. I mean really, they had an entire, open shelf dedicated to peanut butter, nutella, chocolate, and syrup. The pantry of my dreams, I tell ya! So we are planning to go out on Fridays after class. For lunch. I'm official.

Happy Weekend!

Primary color





Romper: c/o Emporium, Button-ups: Old Navy and Ralph Lauren, Shoes: Target, Scarf: Gift, Necklace, Watch and bracelets: c/o Mimi's the Look, DIY, F21

I suppose this outfit is a reversion to kindergarten. Or whenever that was we learned about primary colors. {aparently this is trending with me because today I wore colored shoelaces in my boots(?)} I even painted my nails green to go with the whole basic color scheme. Plus leopard. Because that is practically a primary these days. In my mind. Don't judge. P.S. it pretty much took a whole hour to come up with red, blue, and yellow items from my closet. Somebody needs to break out of her neutral bubble. Today I mixed neon with my black and gray. Living on the edge. This whole law school thing has me feelin' riskay. Who knows, next week I might go with orange and purple. Or green and fuschia. Oh the possibilities.

Have a happy Friday y'all!

The art of carrying books while wearing heels




One-piece yoga suit: c/o Purushapeople, Shirt: Sister's, Sportsbra and shoes: Nike

#1 This is what I wear when I don't wear heels.

#2 If one does wear heels, one must learn important adaptation tactics so that one does not bust one's buttox. It is always generally adviseable to test heels at home first for height. Trot around the house a few times just to be safe. Now add books. Caution: your balance will be considerably compromised from said weightage. Start small. Do not go for the gusto on your first attempt. Again, despite your {unreasonable} thinking, you will not be balances once books are added to the equation. However. Try to balance equal numbers of books, etc. on both sides. This promotes equillibrium. Or something like that. But equillibrium sounds smart. Carry band-aids incase you bite the dust. Hindsight is 20-20 on this one. If said bitage occurs, get up quickly, brush your bummage and scurry away from the scene of the accident. If all else fails, revert back to flats.

The fall list




Shirt, button-up, shorts, chukkas: Old Navy {whoa...that never happens}, Trench: F21, Bag: Vintage Gucci, Jewelry: DIY, Guess, Premier, F21, gift
I got a little jump start on the list this weekend with the trench and chukkas. And the cool weather from last, week which spoiled me so, is now gone. So in effort to tell fall to hurry up and get here already, I present my fall list. Oh the deliciousness.
1. Something red. Hott red. With two t's. Hott red bottoms means hott red bums.
2. More leopard. Goodness, I can't get enough of this! I'm thinking shoes right now, but I wouldn't say no to a shirt if it looked at me sweetly and asked, "pretty please."
3. Glorious riding boots. It's a wish list right? In my wishes they would be gorgeous leather with vintage-looking brass buttons all the way up the side.
4. Something mustard. Like a pencil skirt. But in a woolly fabric that just smells like fall. Yes, I associate color with smell. I think that must say something about me.
5. Polka dots. Any color. Any size. I'm reverting back to kindergarten and geometrics are boss.
6. A school boy blazer. Or just a blue blazer that I can replace the buttons on and pretend it's a school boy blazer. They look so smart. I think it would definitely make me smarter. Or look smarter. Which practically mean the same thing.
7. A fur vest. I had a run-in with a lovely one the other day in Dillard's. And drooled on it a little bit. And petted it softly. We've been daydreaming of each other since.
8. More color. Deep, royal, jewelish color that says, "I am a big girl and I know exactly what I'm talking about." Purple is authoritative.
What made your list this season?
