Where: out to eat with my husband

Why:  This skirt is one of my favorite pieces for dressing up or down.  I’ve worn it many times with a chambray shirt or a slouchy cardigan to be casual, but with a top with a subtly sultry cut, some kitten heels and bold lipstick it’s perfect for a date night.  A little ruching on the hip can do wonderful things for your bum!

I also decided to play with a faux bob hairstyle — it’s a really simple way to make your long hair short for a night!  I basically just curled my hair like normal and then rolled the ends up and bobby pinned them to the nape of my neck, pulling little pieces out around my face.  Glamour has some great tricks to recreate the look here!


Wedge Sneakers

1- Steve Madden – $100   2- Modern Vice – $130   3- Rachel Roy – $149   4- Madden Girl – $60

5- ASOS – $44   6- Sketchers – $80   7- BDG – $79   8- Ash – $200

Lately I’ve really been loving the idea of a wedge sneaker.  I’m generally short, so any added height is always appreciated, and my favorite way to do that when I’m on the go is with a wedge.  They’re so much more comfortable than heels — and can be as dressy or casual as needed.  It’s hard to pick, but I think my favorites of these eight are #3 because they’re so girly and cute, and #6 because I love a little leather incorporated in anything I wear.

I’m pretty confident that #8 is what some of the girls wore for the final performance in Pitch Perfect, which is pretty much the main reason they made it onto this board.  I love that movie!  Have you seen it?  What did you think?

When I first saw these Elizabeth and James heels I loved the pointy toe, the t-strap and the buckle closure, but $325.00 they’re not exactly a bargain.

Enter these ASOS heels.  Same pointy toe, same t strap, same buckle closure.  It’s hard to argue with a savings of $281.02!  These heels are only $43.98 and because ASOS always has free shipping, you could save even more.  An added bonus?  Both the Elizabeth and James heels and ASOS heels also come in nude.
