It seems my adoration for apparel with simple French phrases is just not going to go away. I thought I was done after the Bien sweat shirt and the Eiffel Tour tank, but when I found this muscle tank with one of my favorite French vocabulary words (on sale, no less!) all existing items no longer mattered. In my defense though, this is a rather practical purchase – it can be styled in endless ways and will comfortably get me through yet another wicked summer in the Houston heat. Plus, my beloved blogging partner in crime is the one person that would never judge me for owning too many French inspired clothing items 🙂

Do you have any particular fashion statements that you can’t get enough of?

And is it really May already?! Not that I am disheartened by this fact – I have many exciting trips to look forward to in May and June and am very happy it is here. But seriously, did April even exist?




Do The Locomotion


This past weekend was so nice and relaxing – a Saturday morning workout followed by watching Jerry Maguire (which, I am ashamed to admit, I had never watched the whole way through), a movie with friends, dinner out, girl time on Sunday… just what I needed to bring some zen into my attitude to prepare for the craziness of the following weeks! I wanted a comfy yet cute outfit that matched my weekend vibe, so I chose this cotton skirt and oversized tee. I wore this all weekend. Seriously, both Saturday and Sunday (please tell me I’m not the only one who does that). I actually found this tee on the clearance rack at the Gap in the men’s section and it happens to be one my best purchases. It has been well worn, and there is a small hole that has started that I am currently choosing to ignore because I will be devastated when I have to retire this to a bedtime tee.

To my fiance’s excitement, we lucked out during this photo shoot with a train in the background. Every time we use these train tracks he is always so bummed when a train doesn’t come because he has been wanting to use the blur as a background. We will have to practice a bit more, but this was a good first run!

I hope everyone’s week is going well!



Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop


I can’t stop my crop top craze! Per my last outfit post, I decided to invest in another version from American Apparel, this one not quite as form fitting. I love American Apparel for their tees – so affordable and they always last and rarely go out of style. Obviously the crop top will have its run, but I feel I will be able to get away with this simplistic version for a long time. I love the sense of ease it provides paired with a breezy maxi skirt. Also, everyone should check out Purse and Clutch, which is where I got this blue bag from – they sell gorgeous hand bags that are handmade by artisans in developing countries – create opportunity!

I officially have less than two months until my wedding… WTF! We’ve been able to take care of a lot of things the past couple of weeks, and hopefully some more this weekend, and my people in Michigan have been so helpful – but I can’t shake this anxious feeling. Sometimes it’s good anxious, and sometimes it’s bad (not bad like I don’t want to get married, but bad like what if my dress alterations go wrong). Either way it’s physically impossible for me to give my undivided attention to anything else, I am just WAY too excited. I wonder if pre-wedding anxiety is a condition that makes me eligible for medical marijuana – perhaps I should look into that 🙂 Kidding! But seriously…
