A French Summer

A French Summer

Recently I have had a major stripe obsession, every time I walk into a store I am drawn to the clean and crisp look of black on white. After a friend of mine was swiping through some photos of me from the summer, I got […]

Geek Chic- Star Wars

Geek Chic- Star Wars

While I’m not usually into the Geek Chic look, when I saw this men’s T-shirt at Target, I knew I had to have it. Originally purchased for my husband, I think my constant, “I just love this shirt”strongly indicated to him that it would eventually end up […]

Wedge Round Up

Wedge Round Up

Wedges are the perfect summer shoe. Heels that are as comfortable as flats? It doesn’t get much better than that. I live in my wedges for most of the summer, and my most beloved pair has finally given out. I’m on the hunt for a […]
