Tan, Blue or Black?

Published in: Fashion

I spotted these suede wedges by Halogen at Nordies yesterday and fell in love (just to look, not to get), but I like all of the colors!

Which one do you like best — the tan, blue or black?

I’d probably go for the blue, just for that pop o’ color, but the other two would be more versatile (the tan pair would make my legs look longer, which is a high priority when you’re a shorty! — and the black ones I know I’d be able to wear with everything).

Fashion dilemmas… :)

P.S. On the subject of shoes, what was the last pair you got?

Have You Been to Ann Taylor Lately?

Published in: Fashion


I used to think that Ann Taylor was too stuffy for me, and I still think it’s kind of stuffy, but they’ve got some really cute clothes. I’ve purchased a few things from them over the past couple months, like I’ve gotten some accessories, a couple necklaces, a scarf, a linen tank top and a jacket (I wore it last week).

They always seem to have some kind of sale, too, and some of them are HUGE, like the 50% off ones, some for in-store and some are just online.

So check out Ann Taylor next time you pass by the store at the mall. I also think that the fit is better, and the fabric and the sizing are more consistent, than LOFT, their sister store.

I got a couple of linen tees from LOFT last spring, and also a linen tank at Ann Taylor, and the tank is definitely softer than the tees.

Have you done any shopping at Ann Taylor lately?

Ann Taylor Seersucker Jacket, Linen Tank, Cat Lady Jewelry and What I’m Wearing to Dinner Tonight

Published in: Fashion

It’s been a hot one here in Marin County today! Tabs has been running the ceiling fan ragged all day long. I’m heading out to meet my friend Courtney for dinner, and since it should (fingers crossed) cool off a little this evening, I’ll be wearing this seersucker jacket by Ann Taylor, a linen tank, skinnies and few of my current favorite pieces of jewelry (including a pair of cat lady studs El Hub got me for my birthday!).

The LOFT Riviera Sailor Shorts and J. Crew Gingham Button-Down Shirt That I’ve Practically Been Living In…

Published in: Fashion

For all intents and purposes, I have been living in this J. Crew Factory Gingham Shirt.

Gingham, like ’90s lips, is having a moment right now (I’ve been seeing it all over the place), but even though I think this shirt seems pretty trendy and “now”, I also think it might last me a few seasons (I hope). Because print-wise, gingham’s also a classic.

But the print isn’t the only thing I love about this shirt. It also breathes, because it’s 100% cotton and feels very comfy. I brought it with me to NOLA last week, and no matter what I was doing or where I happened to be, whether on a frigid air-conditioned plane or slogging along a humid French Quarter street, it felt good and stayed pretty wrinkle-free throughout the day, which is a huge, huge plus.

Wrinkly clothes are the bane of my existence, I swear…

It’s available in a range of sizes, both petite and regular, and different prints, too.

Today I’m wearing it with a pair of coral LOFT Riviera Sailor Shorts I picked up a while back.

DUUUUUUUDE, I love these shorts. The color feels so summery, and I love the button detailing on the front.

FYI: the front doesn’t have pockets. Those buttons are just there for display, which is kind of annoying (because I’m all about pockets, because where else am I gonna keep the cat treats?!), but at least there are a couple of real-deal functional pockets in the back.

The shorts are available in coral, black and a gingham print, and they’re currently 40% off right now online.

I’m just sayin’… :)

LOFT Lace Shorts, New Favorite Necklace and the Hunt for the Perfect White Shirt

Published in: Fashion

loft lace shorts

These lace shorts from LOFT almost didn’t make it home from the store with me. I was a little unsure about them at first because I don’t usually do lace (the tabby claws get stuck in the little loops, boo!), but I’ve been trying to break out of my comfort zone lately…and my BFF Jen gave them a thumbs up. :)


Seriously, as it pertains to last-minute fashion advice, thank goodness for texting and the ability to send pics from your phone. If it weren’t for those two things, I’d still be in stretchy pants and covered in cat hair.


The shorts, by the way, are the $49.99 Scallop Lace Riviera Shorts by LOFT, currently marked down from $59.99.

Actually, as of this very moment, it looks like they’re an additional 50% off on top of that! That’s $25!

Doesn’t look like there are many sizes available right now, but if you can’t find your size, these other lace shorts look pretty similar and cute.

Here I’m wearing the shorts with my new favorite necklace, this multi-strand Pearlized Crystal Statement Necklace by Ann Taylor (LOVE), and an old white button-up shirt from Halogen.

I have to be honest about the shirt, though… It drives me a little nuts. It wrinkles easily, and it’s super sheer, so I have to wear a cami under it, which makes me feel bulky around the middle.
