The Brooks Museum featured a tape artist the last couple of weeks. He created an entire mural just out of painter’s tape. Checkout the exhibit.

This will be my summer go-to outfit: a lightweight button down and distressed denim. I thought the slides would be hard to pair with, but surprisingly, I’ve worn them with most neutrals, any denim, and muted patterns. Also, the slides are on sale, so get them while you can!

Happy Summer!

I’m in love with these pants. They are the perfect weight, have a little give and can be worn all seasons. I’ve had these pants for a week, and I’ve already worn them three times. I’ve paired them with the blouse above, a graphic tee tucked in and a cropped blouse. Heels, sandals and sneakers are a perfect match too.

First of all, my dress is on sale!!! Grab it while you can.

These shoes serve as a neutral for me. I wear them with almost anything, and it usually works. I envision myself wearing them throughout all four seasons, and it’s a bonus that they are so comfortable! I love the cuff detail on this dress while the white pops against the navy. This outfit is something I definitely envision myself wearing to work.

Life in the City

No dress code, no problem… I found great fun deciding what to wear each day to work. With few limitations, I got to be creative and get inspiration from the people with which I worked.

There was no shortage of art and culture in the city. The Met, The MOMA, and The Whitney are all worth a visit.

These shoes were a lifesaver for Margaret and me. I don’t think we could’ve walked the miles we did in our sandals and loafers. We hated ourselves for following the Adidas trend for the first couple of days, but then we got over it.

Well, you know me and murals. Had to find at least one while I was in town.

I’d rather spend less on a pair of trendy denim than splurging, and instead, I invest in the classics.

Side note, I’m obsessed with the cobblestone streets.

I found this dress at Luxury Garage Sale new with tags. Definitely a steal.

I love a two piece set that you can wear together and separate for many different looks.

These trousers have been perfect for all seasons.

The denim mini is back!!! I found this at a Rag and Bone sample sale in the city. Check out racked.com for all the sample sales going on in New York.

After a little hiatus, I’m back in Memphis and have time to work on the blog. Finals are done, and it’s time to do something a little more fun. It doesn’t feel quite like Christmas with this warm weather, but that’s quite alright with me – layering with heavy coats isn’t my favorite. Madewell has become one of my favorite fall/winter boutiques because you can get great sweaters and denim with your student discount!

A Classic Combo

Black and white is definitely a common combination in my wardrobe and probably yours, too. This is a new take on a classic. I’m wearing a midi fringed skirt that looks more like a typical spring and summer skirt, but paired with a darker top and heat like we’ve had, you can pull it off. The top and skirt can both be purchased from Luxury Garage Sale, but above are a few other options.

This isn’t your average garage sale… Luxury Garage Sale is a high-end consignment boutique that offers brand new and gently worn handbags, clothing and jewelry. I am so excited to be working with LGS as their brand ambassador – what a driven group of women to be working for and representing on SMU’s campus! If you love luxury items without the outrageous price, check out their boutiques in Dallas and Chicago or online! You are sure to find one-of-a-kind pieces just like the 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts I’m wearing. Both consigners and shoppers receive white-glove service that keeps them coming back for more.
