What I Wore

Post image for Rocksbox + How To Dress Up A Basic Tee

Grey tee (Target) | Necklace (c/o RocksBox) | Michael Kors frames (c/o Advanced Eye Care)   I was recently contacted by RocksBox about trying their jewelry subscription service.  I was intrigued because (a) I love jewelry, (b) I don't have nearly enough of it, and (c) I'd been looking for a "box" service that would fit my needs.  Well, signing up was easy.  I took a survey about my style and before I knew it my first RocksBox had arrived.  How does it work?  You're assigned a stylist who picks out 3 pieces for you.  My first box contained a necklace (see below), bracelet (see here), and earrings.  My second box contained Read More ...

Post image for What I Wore – Floral Ankle Strap Heels

There's a funny story behind these heels.  Remember when I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico Memorial Day weekend with my best friend, Alexia?  Well, our first day there, we were out walking looking for dinner.  We both had on out cute but comfortable shoes, because we didn't know how much walking we would do before we decided where we wanted to eat.  I had on a pair of my favorite caged sandals from Marshalls, the tan Nine West sandals, and Alexia wore her cute wedge sandals that she got from an outdoors store.  Being from an outdoors store, you just know that they will be durable and very comfortable for Read More ...

Black drop-waist dress (Old Navy) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Pink handbag (Marshalls)  Bow bracelet (Old Navy) | Necklace (Target) | Earrings (Tiffany & Co.)   I turn 35 this Saturday, August 9.  When I think back to where I thought I would be at 35, this isn't it.  And that's not a bad thing.  When I was little, I just assumed that I would be married with kids at this age, because 35 was old and that's just what old people did. Ha! When I was in law school I never imagined that just 10 years post-graduation I would be more than ready for my post-legal career (Victoria's Secret model, full-time blogger, anything in social Read More ...

Chambray Dress (Target) | Belt (H&M) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Bag (Marshalls)  Bracelets (The Limited) | Necklace (Old Navy) | Earrings (Old Navy)   Everyone should take a little time to have lunch with their girlfriends.  Whether it's a group of sisters or close girlfriends, you need that girl time to catch up on the happenings in each other's lives.  Two of my closest girlfriends live in different cities and states – one in Birmingham, Alabama and the other in Atlanta, Georgia – so we have to make an effort to not just have lunch, but usually to have a girls' weekend.  Or a special, mid-week Beyonce-and-Jay-Z-are-in-concert-in-Atlanta-and-we-bought-tickets-as-soon-as-they-went-on-sale overnight trip.     This chambray shirt dress from Target Read More ...
