Where Fall Meets Summer


At the end of every August I start fantasizing about eating hearty winter stews and layering scarves over winter coats.  It’s the East Coast in me, I can’t quit it.  But in the desert, it’s HOT in September for the most part.  So I’m going to plan some trips to cooler places and I’m also going to wear these black shorts like crazy.  Because they’re my version of Fall and a damn cute consolation prize at that.  I’m also going to shop for cool weather clothes for all of you who live in places with true seasons (lucky ducks!)!  I hope you’re ok with that!  xx- Sarah

Shades of Grey


Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend and are rested up to tackle this last week of August (still cannot get over how fast the Summer has gone by)!   I’ve been dreaming lately of filling my closet with neutrals- it would make getting dressed SO easy- and the closet would be so pretty.  Ok, I was inspired by this closet vignette.  It’s so good, right?!  Could you do it?  Could you pare down and commit to a life of neutrals?!  I am certainly feeling tempted!  xx- Sarah

I shared my obsession for all white everything here and this will not be the last you see of it.  Because this skirt and these shoes and I LOVE ALL WHITE ALL YEAR LONG!  Same same? And can you even believe that we’re creeping up on the end of August?  I can’t!!!!  But I am looking forward to mixing it up with a Fall wardrobe and may or may not have already started adding Fall/Winter pieces to the closet.  Better than procrastination?!    Carry on with your Tuesdays my friends, until mañana!  xx- Sarah

Asos Striped Dress For The Win


I’m wearing shiny new birthday Converse, it’s true!  Also, a dress that’s well under $100 and I’ve worn three times in the past two weeks.  Because it’s essentially pajamas you can wear with lipstick.  Which everyone knows is next to Godliness.  Signing off now so I can get an inspiring spaces post together for this afternoon!  xx- Sarah

It’s My Birthday, Frock Yeah!!!!


It’s true, it’s my birthday!  And what does a birthday call for if not an amazing dress?!  I can’t get over the pattern on this one, I love it so much!  I wish I could tell you how we’re going to celebrate my day but Lou’s keeping it all very top secret.  Which is I equally love and hate.  Do you feel that way about surprises?  I generally ask a million questions and stress Lou out with all my anticipation.  I’m actually kind of the worst like that.  BUT, I’m giving it the good college try and doing everything I can to keep my big mouth shut and just enjoy whatever is to come!  (Hopefully there is cake- and I know, I know, #EatCleanAugust…but it’s MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!)  xx- Sarah

All White Everything


I’m forever inspired by white on white.  I don’t think it’s actually possible to ever tire of it.  It’s timeless, it’s chic, it just seems to always resonate with me!  So here’s some style inspiration for you, and my selections of some white separates that I would love to mix and match below (you’ll be seeing a few of them in upcoming style posts).   Happy peeping!  xx- Sarah
