My Outfit = Checkered In OC


This week I am in back in my hometown of ultimate suburbia, Orange County, CA.  The weather is fabulous and I have a few events to attend – hence my use of my heels and fancy-pants gear.  I’ve been looking for another top or two to pair with this midi skirt and I found one last night at Intermix.  Best part = it’s on sale!  Love it and it’s boxy shape.  So on trend for spring.  Happy shopping!

Currently Obsessing Over

Welcome to Spring!  I figured now, with the change of seasons, would be a good time to share what I am obsessing over in life.  Ready?


Southern Charm


Southern Charm is about a group of singles from Charleston, South Carolina who have no charm.  Dang it’s so addicting.  It’s on Bravo at 10pm on Monday nights.  My favorite part?  Third-party Kathryn who has apparently slept with EVERYONE.

Real Housewives of New York City


This series just keeps on going.  Last season I started to not care, but I’m back now with “Bookgate” and new addition Kristen Taekman (center standing in that lace jumpsuit) who is gorgeous and entertaining.  Keep it up ladies!  Also- if Bethenny would ever come back I would die of happiness.  Bravo, Tuesdays at 9pm

Are You The One?



Sometimes I wonder if I am the only person watching this fabulous show?  Maybe I am, but it just ended with a BANG.  Don’t worry, this show about people trying to find their “perfect match” is coming back for season 2 on VH1.


Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bags



Every time I see a style blogger with one of these babies I get so upset.  I mean, how can I hope to dress like you when you are wearing something that is soooooo impossible to get?!?!?!  It’s sold out everywhere and is not coming back until the summer.  There are some cute copies out there, but I long for this classy piece.

Open-Toed Booties


These Steven Booties are just an example of all the cute open-toe booties out there.  Remember these?  Anyway, let’s get pedicures and get on this train!

Boyfriend Jeans


What else can I say?  These have been around forever, but haven’t really held my attention until now.  I just ordered a pair and I’m thinking of a cute rolled-up look with flats and a thin sweater.  Perfection!  Jeans

My New Camo Pencil Skirt From Anthropologie


Cute right?  It was an impulse purchase from Anthropologie’s sale section and I got it in the mail last night.  Needless to say, I’m wearing it right now and I look fabulous.  It’s the perfect skirt that can transition from work to happy hour.  I need to figure out how I will style it on weekends but today I have it with a tucked in plain black v-neck t-shirt and J-Crew Pearls with black heels.  Done.  On sale too!  $79.95
