Nicole Richie for Macy's — my favorites:

Long gone are the days of greasy hair and booty-skimming skirts on The Simple Life (I LOVED that show.) Nicole Richie's style has evolved so effortlessly over the years it's hard to believe she wasn't a boho-chic goddess all along. 

A little school lesson: Nicole has had two lines in the fashion industry for some time now, House of Harlow (the "OMG I WANT EVERYTHING" jewelry line), and Winter Kate, a clothing line named after her daughter's two middle names -- collective "aww."

Thankfully she decided to design a line we can all afford. Her designer collection for Macy's hits stores in early September with prints, velvet, and leather trimmings galore. GIMME GIMME. These are just a few of my favs, but you can view the rest of the collection here

These polka dot skinnies are from WHERE??

You have no idea the never-ending quest I've been on to find an affordable pair of polka dot skinnies. All of my dream pairs are just, an unGODLY amount of money (GIVING YOU THE STINK EYE, J.CREW). When things are more trendy, like polka dot pants, I find it wise to not spend the money you would on something that's a staple; THAT I can justify. So I give you, a $40 pair from none other than American Eagle. Bonus: they even have them available in short, regular, long and x-long.

Happy Tuesday/Radio silence

Happy Tuesday. Do you feel more tired on Tuesdays than you do on Mondays? Is that normal? 

I'm pretending that it's not awkward that I haven't blogged in two weeks. Here's the deal. So I've had this blog for about a year and a half now, and eventually you want your blog to evolve into something that it currently...isn't. The problem is, I'm not quite sure what that is at the moment. I've toyed with the idea of doing outfit posts I just A) am clearly too lazy to accomplish and B) have a phobia of appearing narcissistic (which, just to be clear, I've never thought that anyone who does any sort of fashion blogging is narcissistic.) 

But SOMETIMES I wanna have a blog that I can be like, "HEY. LOOK AT THIS SUPER COOL ARTICLE/VIDEO/QUOTE/PICTURE/WEBSITE LOOKIE LOOKIE LOOKIE" mayyyybe even multiple times a day. Does this mean I have to get tumblr? I don't know what's going on. 

See? I'm still confused. So just, bear with me until I figure this whole Let Them Eat (Cup)Cake Phase 2 thing figured out. Aight? You da best. 

PS sorry I made you crave coffee and new skirts.

Coach's fall line (from the girl who doesn't like Coach)

Okay I DO like Coach...sometimes. I hate splashy label brands, like, those old Dooney and Bourke bags are my idea of purse hell. Coach's new Legacy Fall 2012 Collection is nothing of this sort. It also includes shoes, jackets and a few other accessories. Here are a few of my favorites:

Best date ever #1

A quiet dinner for two. Preferably on a dock surrounded by mountains.
