A Trolley Ride

May and I got a nice ride down Main Street by Mr. James, a Memphis trolley driver. He pitched many photo ideas and made a few stops for us along the way.

Today, I wore a Zara (of course) green jumpsuit with a denim vest and platform oxfords. Unfortunately, the jumpsuit is no longer available, but I found one similar. This denim vest has become a staple in my wardrobe no matter the season. I pair it with almost everything.

PS. If you haven’t ridden a Memphis trolley before, you must. AND it’s only $1.

Fringed Sweater

And so the mad shopping begins! On just about every site, you can find almost anything on sale. Of course, Neimans doesn’t mark down your favorite Gucci purse, but we don’t get everything we want.

The fringed sweater I am wearing is a great deal. It’s only $21 and can be layered over collared shirts and under heavy coats. The fringe along the hem makes the sweater unique, and so I had to have it.

Also, for those of you who haven’t visited the Big River Crossing, you must! It showcases a wonderful view of our wonderful city.

Oh to be a Child

Who knew overalls would come back in style? My mom isn’t so sure that they have, but I like them anyway, oops. I’ve worn them a few different ways: with a t-shirt and sneakers, a button down silk blouse and heeled sandals (shown here), and in the winter I hope to wear a warm sweater and booties. The overalls are versatile – I can wear them every season, no matter the temperature, AND they make you feel like a child again! They will keep me warm in the winter as jeans do but can be worn on a summer night, too. Sorry mom :))

Another NYC Purchase

I was hesitant to purchase this dress in New York this summer because I wasn’t sure if it looked poorly made or if I would even wear it. It’s not a dress that I can wear to class, and sadly, it’s not blue or red for SMU’s boulevard season. To my surprise and delight, I have worn it many times sense being back at school, and I’m happy with the quality! The cut is extremely flattering on all body types, too. I love all of the feminine details: pom-poms, crochet cutouts and a low back.
