What a girl wants

Is it too early to think about Christmas Wish Lists? Judging by the fact that all the department stores have been decked out since the day after Halloween, I’d say wish (or perhaps shop) away!

Clearly, this list is for the mostly casual girl that likes a little sparkle and a nice, red lip from time to time. Hmmm, I wonder who I was channeling when I put this together.

Take a look at some of these can’t fail items, if you need inspiration for your own list  (I’m sorry, I do not comprehend this concept) or if you are shopping for some special chick(s) this year. (Shop them on my Polyvore page.)

Anything I’m missing? What’s at the top of your list? Let me know in the comments below!

Daily Covet: Lilly Pulitzer Target Collaboration

I am so excited for this Sunday, April 19th, I can hardly stand it.

Sunday is the day that Target launches it’s latest collaboration with the well-known Lilly Pulitzer label.

It’s true, Lilly purists are dismayed by the brand “lowering” itself to the likes of Target’s fashion for the masses, but I think it’s awesome. It brings southern belle charm and sophostication to all women, who want to look good even if their bank accounts aren’t as full as the average Lilly Pulitzer wearer.

I haven’t always been a huge fan of the busy prints in a rainbow of bright colors, but I have as of late found more and more prints that I really like and Lilly’s shift dresses are practically perfect in every way.

So without further adieu, here’s a quick edit of my most absolutely favorite pieces not only for women… but for the home and children too.

What are your thoughts on the Lilly Pulitzer brand collaboration with Target? Do you think it devalues the brand’s reputation or do you think it’ll give people who wouldn’t have otherwise known or been able to afford access to this fun and vibrant brand?

Daily Covet: Packable Sunhat

With warmer weather approaching – although not soon enough if you ask me – I’m thinking of ways to look great while still protecting my skin… something sadly, I waited to do until I was in my 30’s.

So when I ran across this totally cute sunhat with the big navy bow, I was smitten.

Not only is this ideal for sunny days at the park and the pool, it just so happens that it would look absolutely fabulous with my H&M striped dress daily covet from yesterday!

Transitioning White Jeans Into Spring

With three weeks left of winter, I’m itching to get my white jeans out.

If we’ve learned anything over the past several years, it’s that white pants can be worn year round. To be honest, I put my white jeans away for the winter more out of consideration for my lack of space rather than upholding any now-defunct sartorial rules.

But I so badly want to pull out some of my lighter weight and lighter colored items – more specifically a pair of white ankle jeans that fit great and feel even better. So how do I style them before the temperature catches up to my desire to wear my warmer-weather clothing.

A blue silk blouse, a camel pea coat and navy patent loafers are perfect for staying warm in your white pants. Add a poppy bag – maybe it’ll make you feel sunny even if it’s still very much winter outside.

Slip a blanket coat over white jeans and some on-trend winter boots for a season-worthy look. This is a cozy ensemble for walking around on campus or commuting to and from work or school – especially if there is still some late-winter snow on the ground. Statement earrings, lipstick and bag will stand out against gray skies and neutral pieces.

If your white jeans fit as well as mine do and make you feel good, you’ll most certainly want to wear them out. Pair them with a sexy cami and a cool and cropped flyaway leather jacket for a sexy getup to get you noticed. Black booties that show a little bit of skin are even more sexy.

Of course, you can always wear your fabulous white jeans on the weekends or for more casual weekday wear. Get out your Converse sneakers, a cozy – but still sexy – sweatshirt and a cozy scarf with a bit of color to prevent the “frump factor.”

Daily Covet: Collection of Sunnies

As mentioned in many previous posts, I love sunglasses!

Not just because my poor sensitive eyes have to wear them rain or shine, but because I love how they can show off a totally different you just by changing them up.

I tend to get attached to one certain pair, but I love the thought of matching my sunglasses to my outfit – just as I would with my shoes.

So what eyewear would I like to add to my collection?

Here’s a roundup of some of my absolute favorite styles…

Daily Covet: Céline Havana Honey Sunglasses

I’ve always been a sucker for great sunglasses.

Maybe that’s because I absolutely have to wear them, rain or shine.

Yep, you read that right. It seems my eyes are especially sensitive to a gray day and start to water at the first unprotected glance of a cloudy sky.

So I am all about these Céline Havana Honey Sunglasses. I love the golden tortoise frames and the round lenses. I also love that they are so different from my usual cat’s eye or wrap around options.

There’s just something so Mr. Ripley about them…

Daily Covet: Deco Bling

It’s only serendipitous that one day I was on this impromptu web search for Art Deco-style rings… and the next day, Refinery29 sent me an update called, “Vintage Engagement Rings For the Unconventional Bride” which featured designs from each era from the 1714 to 1950.

As always, my absolute favorite era for design and decor was the age of Art Deco.

While I’m no soon-to-be bride, I love to look at diamonds in all sorts of settings. So for today, here’s a fabulous roundup of gorgeous Deco styles to wear top to bottom.

See something you like? Shop for it on my polyvore.com page, and let me know which one is your absolute fave. I know what mine is: the $38,000 ruby, diamond and platinum ring!
