Listen, I'm not sure if you received the memo but leather is IT right now! 
Ok, it was IT last season, too, but it's even IT-er this season.

Leather skirts/pants, leather shirt pockets, leather shoulders....oh my!

And clearly I loved all of the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target handbags. It's a good bag for the price. I can't even deny it.

Hey fall, is that you?

You know what you all can have? Summer and winter. You can take it! Give me fall and spring ALL YEAR LONG! 

So, one of my favorite outerwear pieces is the trench cape by H&M. I love it. I do believe that I have seen a black version in stores this season. Go ahead and add it to your must have list for fall.

Memo 084: Color Blocked!

I have approximately exactly three leather skirts in my closet and I love and need every single one of them.

I bought this one last season and it's just such a good color that can do so many things. Side note: When you're traveling with your leather, try not to roll it up in your suitcase. Leather and extreme wrinkles don't mix very well. I won't charge you for that one. 

Says I to me, what are they doing with this here leather?! Check out this shirt that I bought from Zara here. What are those pockets even saying?!

Memo 083: Oh Crêpe!

To: All
From: Me
Date: September 18, 2013
Subject: Black, White and Taupe

A few things:
  1. I am in a deep love and infatuation with this 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel. I REALLY wanted the yellow one but I was a few minutes too late to my local Target and watched them roll away in the carts of the earlier birds.
  2. I'm really appreciating the color of the bag and my shoes. Taupe, I feel like, is such an under-appreciated and mistreated color.  It's just so good, so very very good.
  3. Lately, I've been really drawn to black and white. I'm not sure what that means for my life. Maybe it means that I see things as they are and don't believe in gray areas OR maybe I just like black and white right now. Who knows?
  4. I really wanted to add a pop of color with a cobalt blue belt but I just couldn't get it together. So, instead, I popped my lip color. Which leads me to my last point...
  5. I'm obsessed (and my mom is too) with the Dior Mysterious Mauve lip color. It's not new and I've been wearing it for a couple of years now. I just noticed that it's one of my go to colors to wear with just about everything.

Memo 082: Cactus Rose

Remember when my hair was longer?

Me, too. I kind of miss it, especially when I want to wear a ponytail and there's no tail for my pony.

Anyway, I used to wear this outfit often. I love the mix of feminine floral with the studded black blazer. It has a concrete or better yet cactus rose flow going on.

And I may or may not have been playing a little game of hide and seek behind the cacti. Judge not lest ye be judged...
