my very first

That's right, welcome to my very first outfit post. I haven't posted in quite awhile (oops!) because I've been pretty busy working on my shop (visit The Clever Life here). I've got a few more posts up my sleeves, though -- a few more outfits, some guest appearances from some Houston friends (hey guys!), and maybe a recipe or two... okay, who am I kidding, one recipe because I kind of suck at cooking.

Anyway, on to the outfit.. It's pretty warm in Houston at the moment, as expected, so shorts are a must (or a dress or skirt, of course -- just no long-legged pants here!). I wore this out and about doing errands and the like one day last week. I went with some juxtaposition between boy-ish and feminine pieces -- because I was wearing some torn up shorts and my TOMS, I went with a top in feminine colors (see that pink there?) and a pearly necklace with a heart locket pendant.

Sunnies : LOFT (on sale for $14.50) {really expensive version}
Faux Button Down : Aerie (on sale for ~$12) {same style here}
Necklace : Forever 21 (a gift from my bestie a few years ago)
Watch : Fossil (bought duty-free on a cruise last summer -- I mostly use it as a bracelet because it's so cute!) {you know you want one}
Purse : Fossil {similar bag here}
Shorts : American Eagle (these are my favorite shorts EVER -- they are the perfect length and fit, so comfy and soft, I just wish they weren't quite so worn out!) {yes, unfortunately they come distressed}
Shoes : TOMS (if you don't own TOMS yet, you need to get some -- an awesome company and purpose and oh so comfy shoes with great support) {wanna match?}

I'm headed to Austin this weekend (yay yay yay!), and I will probably be taking my fancy camera with me (read: digital SLR), so I should have a big ol' photo post upcoming. Maybe. If I'm not having too much fun to take some photos.

P.S. I found out recently that if you bring an American Eagle receipt into the Aerie in my mall, you will get 15% off your total purchase, including sale items. Check your local store to see if the offer applies and save some money!

style for a patriot

Looking for some ideas of what to wear this Fourth? Why not pair up some cute, sporty shoes with a super feminine dress? Add a little star bling and some stylish sunnies for a look that will create its own fireworks.
