Who Loves Shia

Yes, I had a minor meltdown after seeing this lad in Disturbia and crushin' on him. Why you ask? Because he was a little too young for a gal of my age bracket to be hot for, however once I learned he was 21, my crush was instantly back in full swing. So if you are a Shia fan, check out the latest issue of GQ. He's on the cover with a scruffy face and a fantastic vest ensemble. One word...spectacular!

Linen Caftan Dress

This is the perfect dress to take with you to the beach. You can use it as a cover up and wear it for drinks on the patio of your favorite bar.

Sketchy Stars Tank

I find that Delias is a good spot for some fun and inexpensive items, like this adorable tank for $16.50. Its great for under a blazer or with skirt on a warm day. I am sure I am getting close to the age where this might look a little too young for me, but hopefully I can "age it up" coupling it with the right items.

Ann Taylor Tropical Scroll Print Skirt

I think its pretty well documented on this blog how obsessed I was with finding the perfect black and white skirt earlier this spring. I wish I had seen this skirt at Ann Taylor sooner, but to be honest Ann Taylor isn't really part of my shopping rotation. I see items my friends pick up that I like, but for some reason I wander past the store uninspired mostly. But this skirt is making me reconsider that. This is the perfect skirt to balance out a gal who thinks her hips or thighs are larger than she would like. And right now you can get an extra 20% off this item online.

Patchwork Shorts

Madras prints evoke summer and frivolousness like no other fabric. Add these inexpensive shorts to your summer rotation for only $19.75. The are a little on the short side, so be sure to get your lunges in before sliding into them.

If you are feeling the nautica-inspired look, you might love to see this Marc Jacobs Faille Skirt on sale for $142.80. It comes in navy and they still have it in a wide range of sizes (0-12).

Off The Shoulder Top

Check out this versatile T-Bags top. You can do a ton with this one little piece, off the shoulders, on the shoulders, tucked in, belted, loose with a jacket, loose without a jacket. What more can a girl ask for from one little top?

Charlotte Ronson Dotted Blouse

I adore the neckline on this airy white Charlotte Ronson blouse. Although its not really budget-friendly at $168. But but if it helps you rationalize buying it you could probably get a lot of wears out of this number. Think with jeans, under blazers and cardigans, with get the idea.

Extra Light Trouser Jeans

If you are looking to get on the light jean bus, these trouser jeans from the Gap might suit you. They are extra light and have some stretch to them. Pick them up for $59.50.

Metallic Printed Lace Dress

I can't believe that I just stumbled upon this dress. I fell in love with this Dolce & Gabbana dress several months ago, but there were two issues. The first was that it was $545 and the second was I couldn't reasonably think of an event that would call for a dress this lovely. I still don't have an event, however the dress is now on sale for $325, which makes it a little more attractive. You can't tell me that you don't love this dress!

Lux Sutton Buttondown

This vintage-inspired blouse is perfect for work! Urban has it in three colors, but I dig the navy one. It can be yours for just $48.

Ella Moss Abbey Tank

Feelin' thirsty? Check out this Ella Moss Abbey tank in lemonade. I really love the flower detail along the front strap and the banded bottom.

Marc By Marc Jacobs Dr. Q Groovee Satchel

This Marc Jacobs hangbag is in the running for my big birthday present to myself. Its the perfect color and the larger size will allow me to tote everything I could possibly need while I am on the go.

BCBG Print Voile Sundress

I am kinda bummed I just saw this dress because I really love it and I just bought a BCBG dress that's cut similarly and it just wouldn't make good sense to pick this one up too. But, if you are in the market for a black and white sundress, perhaps this post will benefit you.

Necessary Objects Printed Skirt

Lately, I have only been buying skirts and dresses, so I guess that's what I will spend my summer in, which is a cool alterntive to shorts. And although I have bought a few full skirts this season, I think I might have to add this one too. The combination of tangerine and gray is why I am loving this full skirt. The button pocket and ribbon trim details make this skirt look more expensive than $48.

Safari Cotton Jacket

Looking for an inexpensive topper for your shorts and skirts this summer? This Safari jacket at Forever 21 might be worth a look. Its only $22.80. Don't worry the belt can be tossed so you can add your own.
