Daily Covet: Sexy animal prints skirts…Meeeeoooowwww!

Animal prints plus sexy pencil skirts.  What better combination.

Throw a pencil skirt on with a fitted denim shirt or a cashmere twinset, and you’ve got sophistication all wrapped up.

It’s no secret that I adore virtually anything J.Crew, and this “Safari Cat” No. 2 pencil skirt is no exception.

And score… it’s 30% off today!

Daily Covet: Short on shorts

I need shorts.  It’s been hot here and my season of shorts, skirts and sundresses has commenced.

In a quick pick through my summer wardrobe, currently housed in roughneck tubs in my basement, there was a stunning lack of shorts.  And while shorts aren’t my favorite summer items, they are a necessary part of almost anyone’s summer wardrobe.

Since you can find shorts in any length, style and color from J. Crew this summer, it is probably my choice for a one-stop-short-shopping experience.

Look book from a favorite….

LesPommettes is eye candy for the fashionista.  I love visiting this site a couple times each week because they have such unique pieces, both apparel and accessories.  The jewelry is amazing, and the look book is always inspiring.

Here are a few more laid back looks for summer.  Lace, linen, stripes and girly hemlines are just a few of the fun details I look for in clothing… especially summer clothing! (All images from Lespommettes.com)
