Shop ‘Till You Drop

There’s no better way to celebrate 2013 and ring in the new year than to go shopping! I have always loved to shop, and the Fashion Square Mall in Arizona is one of the best places to shop in the country. They have every store you could possibly imagine (including Michael Kors & Anthropology, two of my all-time faves), so it’s never to hard to find something you like. I spent a decent amount of time in Anthro today, and can we just take a moment and appreciate the decor of the store? I love, love, love the atmosphere in there–it makes everything so appealing. I found a dress for my birthday, and I also found a dress with cheetas/lions/tigers on it, and cmon– that’s just plain awesome. Have a happy New Year!


As of Late

This past week, and the whole summer, really, has been SO hot! Even attempting to go running, play tennis, or even go outdoors is a big effort. Hopefully this heat wave will pass, but for now, I am enjoying the small things.

What to Wear With: White Jeans

What to Wear With: White Jeans

What to Wear With: White Jeans (Night)

In order to start towards my goal of publishing a book about style and beauty, I am starting a ‘What to Wear With…’ segment on the blog. Each time it will feature one item and how to style it differently. In this case, I am showing how to style white jeans during ‘Day and Night.’ I hope you enjoy the first ‘What to Wear With’ post!

PS: Happy Birthday CSC! You are the best brother/photographer a sister could ask for! :)

Spot that Store

While walking along Fifth Avenue, I saw many stores that we don’t have back home in the midwest. I died and went to heaven several times, especially upon seeing more than four Michael Kors stores (my all time favorite designer). I also really loved seeing Burberry, Tiffany’s, Gucci, and many more. Pictured below are a few of the fantastic stores that I passed while in New York.
