Daily Covet: Chevron Wallet & No. 7 Lip Stain

This weekend, I made a public appearance at Junkstock, a cool event in Omaha that happens twice a year.  It’s where vendors bring all their cool “junk” that’s been repurposed or is waiting to be repurposed for whoever decides it’s a must have.

I had to stop in at Target to pick up an umbrella as I misplaced mine.  As I perused the accessories section, this little turquoise chevron wallet (in store) popped out at me. I actually own a black and white printed version of this wallet already and love it. It’s the perfect size for my smaller evening-time bags, I can take it out of my handbag and carry it on it’s own and it snaps shut tightly to keep all my cards, cash and identification in place. The best part is that it’s literally $12.99 – no one is more surprised than this bag snob!

Another favorite from Target is my No. 7 Sheer Temptation lip stain in “Entice.” I’m not much of a lipstick person on a day-to-day basis.  I much prefer a little stain that will keep my lips pink even after the glossiness wears off.  And it’s minimal gloss at that, so it’s really perfect to keep my pout moist even when I’m just working out or heading to the pool.

My paying gig: What I wore

I’ve been so bad at this “what I wore” segment – usually because there is no one around to take my picture when I’m rushing out of the house to my next destination.Momaha mug

However, I did rustle up most of the items I’ve been wearing lately –  and a few “similar” items I’ve found online.

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Darla Sandal

Is it summer yet?

I’m ready for sandals.  How about Kate Spade Darla Sandals to be exact?  These are absolutely the cutest with all the colors of the rainbow and natural-colored pantent straps.  Three patent straps that I absolutely love.  This is a great update from similar sandals last summer and I love the new look.

I know we’ve got a long way to go, but I’m needing to pump my collection of cute wedges, flip flops, maxi dresses, handbags and accessories.

Why?  Because I will be spending the summer (all or most of it) pregnant.  Yep, you heard it here… and here for a twist on the news… that this girl will be putting high fashion on hold in favor of roomy (and tent-like) clothing.  But I digress…

Let’s just take a look and a drool at these pretties!

Style Sleuth: Black Lace & Back East

One morning I met a mom and her children at the same preschool my son attends.  She had done some guest posts for a Mother’s Social Networking site that I write for regularly.  We hit it off instantly, and I ran home to send her a link to something via Facebook.  She saw the udpates I made to Littleblacksweats.com and immediately put me on the hunt for a sophisticated dress she could wear to a wedding back East.

It took me all of five seconds to conjure up the perfect dress (I had actually tried it on in Chicago that fall.)  She ordered it and loved how it fit.

Mission accomplished.  And how classic, elegant and demurely sexy is this little number?
