First, here's the craziness that I was sitting in the middle of. My SA is awesome, he gets all the size 5-5.5's that he think that I'll like and then brings them out to me and I spend the next hour or so just trying on the most fabulous shoes!

What I'm Wearing
Zara Tweed Jacket - also in mint. There used to be four buttons on each side of the jacket but I cut the bottom ones off because I felt like it made me look even shorter. Much better with the 3 buttons now.
gifted Dee & Ray tank - they are giving anyone that tweets to @draclothing a photo of them in the Audrey tank a $25 store credit to use at www.draclothing.com
gifted INDi jeans - take 35% off your order with code MEMORIALDAY12! code expires today. These are completely custom fitted jeans and I can't even believe how amazingly well they fit. I mean, I know that they are custom and even though they asked a lot of questions and took a lot of measurements I still figured, how can a website make me jeans that fit my body? Well, they did it and I love them! I highly recommend trying them out if you have a hard time finding jeans that fit and price wise, they aren't even that much more than non-custom jeans. They have new colored denim that I'm going to get next!
Christian Louboutin New Simple Pumps - Also, love the Simple pumps if you don't want the extra platform (here as well in 3 colors). I also recommend the Filo or if you like the larger double platform, the Bianca is a great choice. Also, check out the gorgeous glitter pumps!
Proenza Schouler PS1 Keep All small - There's also a large size. My color is orchid which is available in the regular PS1 bag.
t+j Designs Bamboo Bangle Set and Silver Crystal Heart Studs

Finally the reveal of my new bag! I posted about wanting either the Prada or the Proenza Schouler and I ended up falling for the PS1 Keep All first! After seeing this color but in the PS1 messenger bag I knew I wanted it but found that it was impossible to find anywhere. I finally went on ebay and there she was! I'm not a huge ebay-er and I don't often buy designer items for fear of buying fakes but with the pictures and the seller feedback, I was confident and when I received the bag, I was VERY happy! Turns out that the seller is also a youtube subbie of mine as she knew who I was when I purchased the bag! Such a funny small internet world. I've already taken it on a couple of business trips and I love that it gives my work/travel outfits a bit of color but also is able to carry all my files and other crap I have to carry with me. It's a fabulous bag and I adore it!

First off, I stopped by GAP because they enticed me with their 40% off sale signs and was loving all the bright colors that I spotted in the window.
I'm a sucker for bright shorts so I grabbed these right when I walked in. The ikat shorts are super cute too but since I tend to wear a lot of brights in the summer, I bought the pink ones with the orange tee (that neon orange is my new favorite color!).

Love these two from Via C. The silky Rag & Bone top is a bit pajama-y but in a good way. The sequin cardigan fits really well and although I do like sequins and sparkle (I was even wearing my sequin heels that day!) I'm a little hesitant on this as it is very sparkly in person but I got it anyway. Going to try pairing it with stuff in my closet to see how I can make it work.
Rag & Bone Contrast Trim Shirt (40% off) - wearing the XS
Rachel Zoe Sequin Cardigan (60% off) - wearing the Petite (another Rachel Zoe sequin top on sale!)
(If you are wondering about the rest of my outfit, I'm wearing Current Elliott jeans with a Shop Sosie dress that I tucked in to make a top, Manolo Blahnik Sequin heels and t+j Designs Leatherette Heart Pendant Necklace)

The Classiques pair are a great look for less of my Chanel pumps! They are great for work and at less than $150 each, you could invest in two colors!
I pinned these Stuart Weitzman Mary Jane pumps awhile back and I still love them!
I think I may like these Vince Camuto pumps the best. I'm loving the gold on gold and then the jewels on the black pair are gorgeous and unexpected!
I got mine at Nordstrom and unfortunately they aren't sold online (I don't think any Chanel merchandise is except for cosmetics, vintage jewelry and vintage bags) but I was there this weekend and they still had them AND they now have them in several colors! I love these two and they also had them in white with black cap toes.
LC Lauren Conrad Chiffon Blazer - I'm wearing the 0 but it does run on the small side, the boyfriend blazer that you saw on yesterday's post is a 0 as well but is much roomier.
Zara Butterfly Top (old) - another butterfly print top from Zara or very similar from F21 (and only $7.80!) or love this peachy butterfly print blouse.
Rag & Bone Zipper Jeans - also in blue. I also got these waxed jeans that look like leather. I love them! Such a cheaper alternative than getting actual leather pants. Oh and the capri fit of Rag & Bone jeans fit me perfectly! I never have to get them hemmed. (I know that I can't wear them until next fall but they are over 50% off and for rag & bone jeans, I get them anytime they are on sale!)
Manolo Blahnik pumps - also adore these cap toe pumps and I'm reaallly tempted to get these hot pink ones. Love!
t+j Designs Black & Gold Layer Necklace - this necklace is a lot lighter than it looks which I love. I can't stand it when necklaces are too heavy and put strain on my neck so that I have to take it off during the day, that's why we like to design lightweight necklaces! :)
Nails: Julep Niecy (pink) & Julep Penelope (dots) - I got them in one of my Julep Maven boxes (my favorite monthly subscription box!) Get yours here for 1 CENT! Use code SHAREONMAY They are currently running a giveaway where you can win an iPad and all 80+ Julep colors! I hope I win but if not, I hope you win! Enter here!
It's not yet shorts season here but I can finally wear this chiffon blazer that I just love! It's the perfect lightweight blazer and I love that the sheer-ness of it. I have a lot of blazers but none like this. I'll tell you I never expected to find one of my favorite pieces at Kohl's but I did! It's also on super sale right now so I'd pick it up if I were you! :)
What I'm Wearing LC Lauren Conrad Chiffon Blazer - I'm wearing the 0 but it does run on the small side, the boyfriend blazer...
It was such a fun day and I got to meet and spend the day with some fabulous bloggers which is always nice. We each had a trend and mine was the color blocking trend with white as the focus. I adored all the outfits that they brought for me but loved the two that I ended up in as they are totally my kind of outfits.
This one was my favorite of the two. As you may know, I love blazers and after the shoot, I got to bring this home with me and it's been such a staple in my closet! You've seen it on me here and in cream here. And those shorts were so cute, all the girls at the shoot wanted them too!
My trip to NYC was short but I had so much fun every single moment! And I will admit that this shoot turned me into a permanent Kohl's shopper as I loved all the clothes that not only I was wearing but what the other girls were wearing too!
* Romwe Heart Print Bow Blouse - this top sold out when I bought it and they brought it back but looks like limited quantity. I was hesitant about the quality before I purchased but when I got it, I was pleasantly surprised! Similar here in navy blue and cute in pink too.
* Zara Trousers
*Jimmy Choo point-toe pumps - Loving Jimmy Choo this season I want these pumps! Or for a look for less, LOVE these Dolce Vita pumps!
*Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM
t+j Designs Jewelry:
- Rose Gold Pretty Ring
- Rose Gold Turquoise Cushion Ring
- Rose Gold Love Necklace
Just a simple work outfit but had to share one of my new favorite tops. I find that heart prints are difficult to wear in a grown up way but this top is one of the few that I can actually wear to a client meeting. I've been living out of a suitcase lately and I mostly just packed these type of blouses. I can't get enough of them! I'm just loving all the different colors and prints. Plus, they are just so easy to pack and look great for work or pair them with jeans for dinner. And if you missed it, check out my travel packing tips post to see how I pack my suitcase.
I'm not traveling this week so hoping to get lots done. And we just launched a whole bunch of new arrivals today! Check it out, so many pretty pieces! :) Happy Monday!

** Last Chance to enter my Ebates giveaway for $150 !** I spent the first part of last week on a business trip and then made an imprompt...
I had a few people ask me about strapless bras and what brand/style I prefer to wear but to tell you the truth, I can't stand strapless bras. I have never found one that doesn't slide down and is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Since a few summers ago, I switched to bandeau bras to wear underneath dresses and tops that usually call for strapless bras and I love it! The fun part about bandeau bras is you can get so many fun colors so it can add a bit of an unexpected pop of color and it's not weird looking if it pops out. In fact, I try to make it part of the outfit most of the time. You can see how I wear it in this lookbook from a few summers ago.
If you are needing a bit of coverage, there are quite a few that do have cups built in. I actually really like these cheapies from Forever 21 and I always pick up a few different colors for the summer. Trust me when I tell you on a super hot day, these are so much more comfortable to wear than a regular bra. Once you try it, I'm sure you'll thank me! :)
I like how they paired it underneath a sheer top like this. I'm not brave enough to wear it like this, well maybe on vacation on a resort where I wouldn't be seeing many people :) But I do think it's a cute option!
I admit to being a Laguna Beach addict back in the day. I loved the high school drama, relationships, friendships, etc... What I didn't expect was to end up loving the style of one of the girls from the show. Of course I'm talking about Lauren Conrad who, in the past few years, I've come to adore her style and am always looking at my celebrity magazines to see what she's wearing.
This is one of my favorite of her recent outfits. I'm totally going to recreate it soon!
We think its tremendous popularity is proof that the 2012 Corolla offers the ideal blend of comfort, value and safety. In it, you'll find a surprising number of high-end features, like available Display Audio system. It offers remarkable performance and fuel efficiency, plus an impressive list of standard safety features. Factor in its legendary reliability, and it's even more apparent that Corolla is the smart choice.
