Nerd Alert

Comic-Con 2014 is here. Nerds everywhere are rejoicing. But something tells me they are rejoicing due to the amount of cropped tops. Here are some of my favorite looks from Comic-Con this year (and they all happen to be cropped tops):

Jessica Alba. Ok, first off, this woman has given birth to two babies. She has abs. I really love this look, however, I am not crazy about the shoe. A simple heel would have been perfect. Other than that, this is gorgeous.

Willa Holland. Where have you been hiding since your OC days?? Ok, ok, apparently she has been on some show called Arrow. I love the head-to-toe white. I saw that Ben McKenzie attended Comic-Con, and me being a massive OC fan, I hope they ran into each other and chatted about their old (and amazing) show…

Megan Fox. Who are you right now? Leave it to her to show up at Comic-Con like this. She is flawless and is rocking the shit out of this crop top and skirt. Get it girl.

Jessica Parker Kennedy. I’m loving that she is rocking the cropped top trend with a different style of cropped top. Kudos, girl. The skirt is beautiful and has lovely colors.

What do you think of this year’s style at Comic-Con?

We Will Preserve

Blake Lively recently launched her website, Preserve.
I, of course loved Serena Van Der Woodsen, I love Blake (and her glam style), and I love the website. I’m not going to lie, though. It feels like something Anthropologie would have guided her through. It’s rustic and modern, yet very homey and down-to-earth. This website gives you a glimpse of Blake’s real life (you know, when she’s not rocking custom Gucci) and maybe what she has to say, or learn, or discover.

You can shop (you too, boys!) for clothing and accessories, food, and home decor. Preserve features a little description about each of the artists or designers behind the products, so you really get the feeling that you’re supporting real people and not humongous corporations. This also makes for price points that you may actually find at Anthropologie.

You can also make donations to different organizations – or just shop and let the Preserve team donate a portion. It seems they’re very healthy, holistic, and charitable.

I feel like Blake should be living in one of those cute, unique little bungalows in Austin, TX. She’s so cool and doesn’t have her head stuck in the Hollywood clouds.

“Our goal is to support the America we have always known, and the one we haven’t yet met.”

Who can argue with that? Well done, Blake.

Alice + Olivia Ready-to-Wear, Fall 2014

I am truly a summer girl at heart. But, I absolutely love fall clothes. From tights and boots to jackets and scarves. I love all of the layers and bold colors. Fall weather doesn’t usually hit St. Louis until mid-October. I have worked in retail for about eight years now (oh my) and it never fails, I start wearing fall clothes in August. And August in St. Louis is hot. But I am just too excited about my fall wardrobe that I can’t wait for the chilly weather. I am in love with this fall’s ready-to-wear line by Alice + Olivia.

20140726-185243-67963171.jpg

I would wear just about every piece from this collection. But obviously, I am going to show my favorites.

The colors, prints and textures are fabulous.

Seriously. Can these outfits get into my closet immediately?

Pineapple Perfection

20140724-195719-71839621.jpg

Nothing says “summer” quite like pineapples. So what better way to celebrate the summertime than by wearing an adorable pineapple top?

20140724-195802-71882240.jpg

I have been on the hunt for a top with pineapples on it. I found exactly what I was looking for at the J. Crew factory store! And they had pineapples galore.

20140724-195939-71979080.jpg

I paired my J. Crew top with a vintage skirt from Anthropologie, a statement necklace from The Limited, and Sperry sandals from Nordstrom.

Outfit of the Day: Ivoire Dress

There is nothing I love more than a white dress and a fabulous pair of cowboy boots. Seriously. I have a problem. I wear this look a lot. And I love it. Some of you may see “cowboy boots” and think it’s too country. I promise it is not. I live in the city. I think dresses and boots were made for each other! And it’s the perfect everyday look.

20140721-151222-54742232.jpg

This lovely dress is by Tracy Reese from Anthropologie, Ivoire Dress, and is currently on sale for $99.95. Get it while it’s hot, girls! The belt is also from Anthropologie, Equestrian Leather Belt, and the studded boots are by Frye (from Nordstrom last year). Happy shopping!

Anthropologie Capay Dress

20140720-144102-52862196.jpg

I absolutely adore this dress from Anthropologie. It is the perfect dress to wear everyday, or even as a guest at a wedding. The color pallet is beautiful and looks great on every skin color. And, I love the way this dress moves in the wind.

20140720-144341-53021726.jpg

I like to keep this dress simple. I wear it with gold Sam Edelman sandals and House of Harlow earrings. I think too much jewelry would take away from this dress.

This Anthro dress retails for $168 Capay Dress

Chic of the Week!

I am beyond excited that I was chosen as this week’s “Chic of the Week” on Lauren Conrad’s website!! That was amazing news to wake up to this morning. Pretty sure I squealed! I have loved Lauren and her style from the beginning. She has a very feminine and classic style, which I relate to. Still so excited! Thanks to the team at laurenconrad.com!

Obsessed: Anthropologie Petaluma Skirt

20140715-133825-49105710.jpg

Where do I begin with this gorgeous skirt? I can’t even handle how adorable it is. The second I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The skirt sits at a great spot on my waist. So obviously it is the ideal skirt for a crop top.

20140715-134003-49203319.jpg

The skirt is from Anthropologie and is $148. The crop top is from Express last summer.

What’s a good photosesh without some photo bombers?

Happy Tuesday!

Summer Playlist

This is a style blog, but I am also a big lover of music. Throughout high school and college I always made mix cd’s. Who am I kidding? I still can’t part with them. Pretty much everyone and their mom play music through their phone in their car. Not this girl. Anyways. Summer mix cd’s were always my favorite. So much so that I had a series of them many years ago called “Sunny Days” (mix 1, 2, 3,….you get the point). I still have my go-to summer songs. So here goes…and yes, the order is important:

1. Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap
2. Paint the Silence – South
3. Caught by the River – Doves
4. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz
5. Take a Picture – Filter
6. Starlight – Muse
7. Sweetness – Jimmy Eat World
8. Island – The Starting Line
9. All These Things That I’ve Done – The Killers
10. California – Phantom Planet
11. (Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay – Otis Reding
12. Symbol in My Driveway – Jack Johnson

These songs remind me of the summer, aka the best time of the year.
