back in stripe and leopard

I read on a blog recently somewhere you should never wear a shirtdress with the belt it comes with. I had never thought twice about it until I read the post.
This is one of my favorite casual dresses, so I jazzed it up with my leopard belt.
You like?

where am i? part 4

A fantastic trip, in one of my favorite cities. It won't be hard to figure this one out.
I have had an amazing month in July...visiting friends in Minnesota, going to see family in California, a friend in Austin, and now....

It started with magazines and delicious drinks poolside.
Clockwise from second row: before heading out one night (dress: forever 21, shoes: target), say hello to lindsay! she put $10 in a slot and we freaked when it paid out..., my traveling outfit was like wearing pajamas (maxi dress: forever 21, top: thrifted, buffalo exchange, shoes: target), playing my favorite slot machine, amazing breakfast at grand lux cafe (eggs benedict and chilaquiles), amazing bloody marys...my vacation breakfast staple drink.

In other news...my summer is pretty much over. I am so blessed to be able to travel so much and visit with such great friends and family in my time off. I am excited to be going back to work and showcasing some new outfits I've picked up in my travels. :-)

confetti nails

do you pinterest?
(tell me you do.)
i surely do.
pinterest gave me some inspiration recently for a manicure.
my version:

isn't it fun??
dallas friends, i had this done at soho pedi spa off oaklawn.
it's right next to world market, also near sushi zushi.

i'm basically obsessed.
think of all the color options you could do with this.
for fall - black or dark brown for the base...
bright dots...
it's endless!

belt love

i can't stop buying belts.

but i've been known to buy more.
but this may be my proudest purchase as far as price...

cardi: H&M
top: angl, shop in santa barbara, ca
pants: zara

belt: madewell
don't let the online price fool you.
i paid $6 for this belt in store. done & done!

my kind of deal.
(madewell has been having awesome sales, FYI.)

shoes: nine west

tomorrow is my FRIDEY!
i'm taking thurs & fri off to chill in the chill station...
