Brrr its cold in here: Sweater Roundup

sweaters
Its not officially winter yet but it sure does feel like it already. And this Cali girl is freezing her buns off! I usually just want to wrap up in some really warm sweats, a cozy sweater and fuzzy slipper….alas, since I can step out of the house like that. some comfy crew neck sweatshirts will have to do. I have a ton of favorites…too many to count so I wanted to do a little round up on my favorite and fun, accessible sweaters. Go pick them up now!!
I love how sweaters are definitely a great go-to piece to just throw on with some jeans or even a skirt! and you don’t have to feel like your are skimping out on style. Have fun with it! and with places like forever 21 and target having a lot of cute affordable options…there’s no reason to choose. you can get one of each (well that’s my theory anyways)

Summer Summer Summer Time!


Well Summer is officially here! Thank Gawd b/c I was slumping in the fact that I still had to wear leggings and boots every so often. I have put away all my bulky winter / fall stuff and spread out my dresses….These images definitely conjure up the fun in the sun feeling with lively colors, warm summer nights, glitzy golds and that burnt orange leather….and we must not forget the Popsicles!!

We have some weddings to work, some weddings to attend, baby showers galor, and lots and lots of travel!! Next post will be on that!! Cant wait!

Fashion is one of my loves and I love when fashion week comes around and there is all this designer eye candy all over the web and blog world. Thought I’d share some of my favs that Ive been seeing. New York Fashion Week just came through with designers fall 2011 lines so there is a lot to look at =)

Burberry has some amazing coats lined up for their fall 2011…Im swooning over all of them. I love all the colors and structure…especially that black toggle detail.
