With Memorial Day almost here and July 4th just around the corner, I'm in a patriotic mood. Plus, it's hard not to feel a lot of American pride when seeing these stories about so many people helping out in the Oklahoma tornado aftermath. Phew, it's been a rough week there. (Everyone, hug a loved one!)
PS- Side story: I tried on this Zara skort literally 3 separate times before finally telling myself yesterday YES IT IS TOO SHORT. One of the perils of being tall.
Weird, she has like pretty much my same exact outfits.
Oh wait, no.
Pretty sure we could be BFF though Elena, pretty sure. Just saying. In case you're wondering, she's: a Siberian-born Russian model, married to a media mogul Russian billionaire, 26 years old, a mother of two, a BFF to Miroslava, a designer darling ... oh, and my new style crush.
Who is your current style crush??
What is everyone up to this weekend? We are headed off on a road trip to Tennessee today to see our friends get married! I can't believe their wedding weekend is here! I always look forward to road trips and plane rides because it's the perfect opportunity to catch up on emails, to-do lists, and other really important things, like reading Vogue. Don't you agree?
PS - I'm looking for guest posts for the week of May 27 - email if you're interested! firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't mind me, I'm just celebrating my birthday today!
Today should involve:
a beautiful dress
Last night was Girls Night Out birthday celebration and tonight is all about the dinner date with the hubs. This weekend we are celebrating our good friends' wedding in Tennessee! And then NEXT WEEK we depart to Spain, Italy and France! Needless to say, things are pretty busy!
Speaking of my travels, does anyone have any suggestions of things to do in Barcelona, Naples, Rome, Florence, Marseille or Palma Majorca? Or requests for me to check anything out? I'm going to investigate the custom shoemaker in Barcelona.
Can jean shorts be chic? Hmm. Since we are leaving next week for our Mediterranean vacation, I've been putting outfits together nonstop, and looking for lots of easy breezy outfit inspiration.
This might come as a shock to some of you, but I don't really "do" jean shorts. Weird? I probably haven't owned a pair since..... Middle School?? Maybe? I'm not really sure but it just hasn't really been my thing. Usually in the summer I'm wearing more dresses, skirts, and colorful shorts. I'll just come out and say it. I've been a bit of a jean short snob. They don't pass the would-kate-middleton-wear-this test. My sincerest apologies to any jean short lovers.
But then, just when I least expected it, the jean shorts skies opened up, and I happened to be inspired by this photo of Miroslava (because aren't we all?) ... and then I happened to find the most comfortable, amazing-fitting pair of jean shorts. Those words felt weird to type.
Jean shorts. What am I doing with my life.
Whatever, I'm going to be on the beaches of Barcelona, Spain next week folks and I think I need to get a little wild and crazy.

Fun side note: This blog is almost 4 years old and I just had to actually add "denim" to one of my labels below, I didn't already have it listed. Wow. That is how often I am concerned with denim.
If you need a great basic sandal to go with everything this summer, this is the style for you darling! You can even get it at every price point, and in NUDE or BLACK.
I personally picked up the STEAL, because ya know, they're $26 and I needed them for an outfit that day. But I love the way Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmerewore the Zara's in the nude version. Everyone from Rihanna to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been spotted wearing the "chaos" Manolo's.
If you're looking for a go-with-everything heel of summer, this style is my pick!
