LUNCH DATE

My mom and my little sister and I stole away for lunch at Bistro 31 the other day for a pre-Valentines gift exchange. Growing up in a household of girls, we pretty much know each other’s tastes perfectly and we love to shop for gifts for each other any chance we get. Valentines is no exception! When Pandora offered us a few Valentines trinkets to exchange with each other, I was so excited! I knew Carol and my mom would love the simple and classic jewelry I picked out for them. Over a long leisurely lunch on a blustery cold day, we exchanged gifts and sampled desserts. Carol looks so pretty in her new Pandora earrings!

I also got my sister this pair of heart stud earrings, I knew they would look adorable on her. The “love” pendant bracelet is so delicate, so pretty with a demure sweater!

My sister is so cute, she is laughing in every photo I have ever taken of her.

My mom loved her Essence bracelet we got her last year so much that we chose some new beads (love and dedication beads) for the one she had already. We had so much fun opening our gifts at our Valentine’s lunch, thank you so much to Pandora for the jewelry!

The Shoes I’m Obsessed With For Spring: a moodboard

I’m getting very inspired to stock my spring wardrobe with lots of dorky heavy-heeled wooden clogs and sandals this season. This editorial  styled by Geraldine Saglio from Vogue Paris’s October issue is a huge point of reference for me right now. I like the chunky socks.

I am looking forward to adding a pair of clogs to my dorky shoe rotation, and I am currently weighing my options. In years past I have loved my Swedish Hasbeens and Dr. Scholls to death, so a clog is a natural progression. Last summer my favorite look was white Dr. Scholls mules with gauzy 70s peasant blouses and vintage Levi’s paperbagged around my waist.  I could see styling a clog similarly!

Saint-Laurent-Clogs

This Saint Laurent clog on Net-a-Porter is kind of precious, it reminds me of this candid outfit shot of Kate Moss. What cool style.

Another great clog I found comes from Polo Ralph Lauren. As a Ralph Lauren fanatic, I’m inclined to go with this version!

Yes, I think I need these clogs to wear with lots of fair isle knits and vintage Edwardian blouses and woven leather belts! I must pull out my concha belts and Ralph Lauren sweaters now.  Time to put my summer moodboard together.

A DAY AT ELEMENTS

When Lovegold asked me to showcase the best of Dallas’s jewelry, I instantly knew I wanted to pay a visit to my friends at Elements boutique. Elements has an incredible selection of jewelry and clothing. My best friend  and Elements’ buyer/shopgirl Stevie has flawless eye for design and amazing personal style, which is always reflected in what Elements has in store.  My sister Carol also does visual merchandising at Elements. Obviously, I love an excuse to shop and visit my best friends!

Shopping  Taken

Kind of obsessed with this “Taken” necklace by Lana. It is very Carrie Bradshaw, so I had to put on this very Carrie dress by MSGM to ham it up!

Thank you so much to Elements for letting me show off their beautiful store and jewelry! If you are in Dallas you must check it out. Find out more on their website here!

THINKING OF MIU MIU

I couldn’t pass up this colorful vintage crocheted vest, thinking of Miu Miu’s resort collection. At just 19 dollars it was a tiny fraction of the price of  the Miu Miu. Pretty fun for a cheap thrill!
Also wearing: a Brooks Brothers Black Fleece handbag, a Stylenanda faux fur coat, Hysteric Glamour jeans, and Polo Ralph Lauren platform hiking boots.
I love the Miu Miu vests over the wild printed dresses and blouses, so inspiring!

miumiuI also have to share this picture of Yves Saint Laurent holding a chihuahua in his crochet vest. It’s just too adorable.

THRIFT STORE SCORES

This cute striped 70s sweater was a lucky thrift store find this weekend! I love the après-ski feel of it. Wearing vintage sweater with boyfriend jeans, Loeffler Randall “Rider” handbag, Madewell belt, and Miu Miu booties from spring 2006.
