I suppose traditions are what you make them- content and inspiration left to ones own discretion... this was a pleasant first.

I'm pretty sure I just found the shoe that personifies my mood lately. I'll let you know what comes of my quest to track them down.

I titled this post 'Royal T' because my dear friend Tami, who is a striking redhead, looks fabulous in this shade of blue and each time I pull it from my closet, I'm often reminded of her.

I'm sure I'm not the only one flipping through the gargantuan Fall Preview issues of all of the major fashion publications this month- and setting eyes on utility jackets, dresses and trousers on nearly everyone. Frankly, this is a trend that should excite us all. It's versatile, inexpensive and requires minimal maintenance; no dry-cleaning, delicate cycle, or ironing required.
I meant what I said about staying below my wallet's radar for the weekend, but I don't think a quick trip into my local thrift store on a Friday afternoon for a $10 jacket- should be counted against me. It was a weekday, it was inexpensive, it was on my Fall 'Must-Have' list and I went straight back to the office to eat the lunch I packed that morning, immediately after. No harm, no foul... sort of ;)

Since I can't bear to leave this post on a sour note, I will say that the one glorious thing that happened this month was an early morning, spontaneous trek, down to my old stomping grounds to visit with my nearest and dearest :)
Dear August, Whatcha got?

Shameful Omission: Noticeably absent from this photo are my Holy Grail, Nude GUESS Slingbacks (the ones that appear in most outfit posts); lets just say that for the sake of this photo, they are far to "broken-in" to pass as anything less than offensive ;)

The formal cut and laces make them feel more refined than a regular ballet flat and the crackled, metallic leather make them diverse enough to pair with most anything in my closet; dresses, skirts, jeans, trousers. Very exciting! Best of all, they were a gift :) The summer is looking good!!

Sorry darlings, I wouldn't dream of actually being photographed in any of these for the blog, so this haphazard arrangement will just have to do. Amazing how little it takes to start a collection, but I think us California girls get a pass when it comes to bikini's and cover-ups ;)

There once was a time when my sister and I would tear through a store, scoring one fabulous find after another; now with the bundle in tow- we have to be very precise and calculated with our selections because the little man's tummy waits for no one! This dress was one of those snatch and dash pieces and fortunately for me, it fit and I loved it.

One rushed Friday afternoon, one crammed clearance rack at Urban Outfitters, a split second decision, exactly one minute in the checkout line and they were mine. All things considered, a 97% discount is more than enough motivation to lose the 15 pounds necessary to look even ½ as good as Sarah Howard looks in hers.
