Wishlist Wednesday

Since my original cap toed flats were ruined by the torrential downpour in Florence, before I bought my rain boots, I have been in serious need of replacing them. When I saw these, I knew I had to have them in my closet!!

Trend: Birkenstocks

I know, I never thought I'd live to see this either. But in fact, they are back in style, as illustrated by Miss Ashley Olsen herself! Hey - at least their patent, right?

Concealed Carrie

Since handbags are my obsession, I had to highlight the new line I just found. While I don't own a handgun, my husband does and if I ever had a desire to carry it, I know exactly how I would - with one of these fabulous handbags. The line currently has eight styles, all of which are leather, fashion-forward and completely concealed.

Style Me Chic: Happy Hour/Date Night

Cindy is looking for clothes for week night happy hours with the girls and weekend date nights.  She prefers dresses or skirts, and her favorite color of the moment is coral. Lucky for her, she doesn't have a budget to stick to!

I don't know about you, but last week's heat wave has me craving Fall! This will certainly be my first purchase for the cooler weather...

The much anticipated Nordstrom sale opened to all customers this past weekend (card holders were offered an early preview). As usual, there are some fantastic items up for grabs. If you're lucky - you can grab this Michele watch face at an amazing price!!

Musings Around the Internet

As if I weren't already a Mac-convert...

Happy Apple by aleXsandro Palombo

Society has us under the impression that a model's career is over by her early 20s. Jennie Rhodes, 81, is putting a stop to that stereotype. She was just signed with Vielma to be the face of their new campaign. Love, love, love this!

Jennie Rhodes

Elsie (my dog) is a girl, but because she is a beagle/jack russell, she doesn't look very girly. Even though she has a pink collar and leash, people still come up to her and assume she is a boy. I've thought about how this may be an issue if we have a baby girl, and she doesn't have hair early on. Insert baby bangs. They seriously think of everything, don't they?!

Baby Zara

Zara is one of my favorite stores (Italy had them on every corner, it was fabulous!), so I was excited to see they now offer baby clothing. A store where I can shop for me, my hubby AND my (future) babe...sold!

Style Me Chic: Wallet

Chelsea is looking for a new wallet that is high on fashion, and reasonable on the bank account. I made a limit of $200, because I think a wallet is a bit of an investment piece; if you purchase a nice one, you can use it for years. Her only must was a place to hold receipts and she noted she wasn't afraid of color or pattern.

available in metallic, and I also like this two-tone version

Wishlist Wednesday

When I saw this bracelet at Cusp, I fell in love with the idea! The outside are coordinates to a specific location, and inside, it is engraved with the location's name. I would love to have this with the coordinates to where we were married!!

I'm borrowing this post idea from Danai. Wishlist Wednesdays are just that, wishes (most of the time). Here's what I'm actually buying this week...

Ad Love: Burberry A/W 2013

Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge are the new faces of Burberry. The real-life couple had a PDA-packed photo shoot for the Autumn/Winter ad campaign. Aren't they the cutest couple?!

Trend Report: Crop Tops

While celebs have been baring their mid-drifts for awhile now, crop tops have finally shown up on the scene in stores. The style that those in Hollywood can pull off are not quite something I think DC is ready for (or even me personally) but I do think I could happily work with Devon Rachel's look. Classy and on trend - perfect! What do you think of crop tops? Will they fit in your wardrobe this summer? The black lace one is growing on me...
