bday wish list

So I think I need to have these cinnamon roll waffles on my birthday morning. Right!?

Totes was obsessed with a dress just like this one, last year - and I still am this year :) (should be on my door step on Saturday!)

Okay, how sweet and precious is this taken necklace. 

Love that it is sweater weather - and how flattering and girly this adorable thing is. 

And how fun is this gorgeous rose sweater too!

So, Gap and Baldwin got together. I think it's absolutely amazing. And I think I need to wear this everyday. Seriously. 

I always love a good men's wear watch, and I love the thinner leather band. And orange, done and done.

The leather trend is on fire this fall, and I feel like this dress has it all, great pleating, a modest length, oh and a cute cut out in the back. Check it out here.

How adorable are these iPhone cases? Tortoise and monogram - so perfect!

This weekend I will be turning the big 2-7! The family is coming in town, and I can't wait to go see Wicked (for the first time, crazy, I know!), enjoy downtown KC (how adorable is this print) and hopefully some yummy cinnamon roll waffles. We will be shopping for sure- shocking, I know:) I can't wait to share with you on how the weekend goes. Keep up with me on Instagram to see what I'm up to moment by moment.

How do you feel about turning a year older? I feel a little wiser now that I am a little closer to 30 (gasp for air). I don't know about you, but I feel motivated to conquer my bucket list. It is always growing changing.  So far, New York, Chicago, and a beach were on my list - and by the end of 2013, I will be 3 for 3! Woop! 

What is on your bucket list?

it's fall y'all

sweater: J.Crew (old)| skirt: Francesca's dress worn as a skirt | tights: BCBGeneration | boots: Steve Madden | scarf: J.Crew Factory

The leafs are starting to turn those gorgeous golds and reds here in KC. This look is a what the hubs calls "your look." He likes it when I get dressed up, but because I'm dressed up more often than not, looks like this, one he loves. And hey, it's pretty cute and comfy too! The ivory lace dress I wear a lot in the spring, but usually tuck it away when the summer ends. So, I sure thought it would be fun to wear it with a soft tone sweater for fall.

What do you like to wear season to season?

top knot

 sweater: Forever21 (old) but similar here | pants: J.Crew | shoes: Target | scarf: BCBG MaxAzria (old) but similar here | purse: Louis Vuitton last scene here | watch: Michael Kors | earrings: J.Crew (old) but similar here | ring: David Yurman

Now that the cool fall weather is here - I am cuddling up with sweaters and comfy clothes. This boyfriend sweater is a great piece that I wear over and over again. It's a great piece to wear with cropped black pants like these, or a dark pair of skinny jeans and heels. It's a look you can throw on for any event.

sequins by day

top: J.Crew (old) but similar here| jeans: Madewell last worn here| shoes: J.Crew Factory | belt: J.Crew (vintage) | bracelets: J.Crew and J.Crew | earrings: J.Crew Factory (old)

This is a look that I love. The sequin shirt paired with a relaxed pair of boyfriend jeans is fun way to wear a usually super dressy piece during the day.

fall plaid

shirt: J.Crew | skirt: BCBG Max Azria last worn here | tights: BCBGeneration | booties: Target | earrings: J.Crew old but similar here | sunnies: Ralph | rings: Groopdealz and similar here and here 

Fall is officially here! The air is crisp with the leafs beginning to turn. I was so excited to wear these cute booties I picked up from Target. I've been on the hunt for a casual black pair, with a low heel, to wear everyday. And these babies are totally it. They are also easy to throw on with skinny jeans and a sweater for these gorgeous fall days. Oh and these rings, dying over them - and yes, I got our wedding date. :)

vintage chev

top: JCPenney last seen here | skirt: vintage but similar here | shoes: BCBGeneration but last seen here |  sunnies: Ralph | watch: Fossil (old) but similar here 

This top is such a great piece. It's easy to wear with a simple black pair of cropped black pants or a maxi skirt too. Also this leather pencil skirt, love. It was my aunts, and I was so excited when she gave it to me. The simple pencil skirt silhouette is a classic that I can re-wear it over and over again. Especially now that fall is creeping in. What are your favorite pieces?

snow leopard


 sweater: J.Crew (old) but similar here | jacket: Lucca and similar here | jeans: Madewell last scene here | heels: Ann Taylor | ring: BCBG Max Azria 

 I'm loving fall, and all the layering that goes on in my wardrobe, especially leather and leopard. But, I'm just not comfortable putting away my white jeans, just yet. I know I was "supposed to" after Labor day. But hey, it 2013 and as far as I'm concerned, white, is a neutral, and therefore is good to go all year long. So, here we are. I am wearing my fall leopard sweater, leather jacket and white jeans. Will you wear your white jeans through fall?
