Now is the time to start thinking about some transitional pieces to ease into Fall. I found this great off the shoulder blouse with flare sleeves at Alysa Rene Boutique. It’s a little longer in the back which is great if you like a little more coverage. I love that you can wear this now with jean shorts, and obviously pair it back to denim or a black skinny pant for fall.
Belts are making a huge comeback. This B-Low the belt baby bri-bri has been one of my favorite investments this Summer. I throw this over dresses or any blousier tops to give some waist definition.
Even though we are seeing a lot of flare jeans, and even cropped flares skinny legs will always be a good staple in your closet. Go for super clean dark denim, as well as lighter shades with distressing for fall.

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale goes public tomorrow! I can’t believe how quickly sizes have sold out on things. This is your last chance to scoop up some of your favorites before they are gone! The Patagonia’s are a great deal, and this is a great time to pick up your kids shoes for fall.
I scouted the kids departments and here are some of my faves…
I am still recovering from the long weekend with my girlfriends. I took a 5:50AM flight home yesterday, which left me in a fog the past two days. We had an absolute blast! It was the perfect mix of going out/relaxation/bonding time.
I got in early Thursday, so my friend Jayme and I spent an afternoon in the city. We had lunch at Fig & Olive (one of my faves!) and then we headed to Barney’s to do some fragrance shopping. I have been dying to try Byredo, which is only sold there. We both fell in love with the same 2 (Mojave Ghost and the Oliver Peoples for Byredo scent), but we could not decide which one was the winner. We even resorted to asking about 6 different people on the street which scent they liked best. ha! They are expensive and we couldn’t decide, so we left empty handed.… Continue Reading
I LOVE a white dress. I have a few in my closet; all for different occasions. Like the LBD, you can never have too many little white dresses in your closet.
I spotted this darling dress at Scoobie a few weeks ago and knew that I had to have it. I love the bow tie and little cutout in the front, and the A-Line skirt adds a feminine touch. Added bonus, it has pockets, AND…it is only $89! Scoobie is offering a generous 20% discount for my readers! Just enter STYLESCOUT20 at checkout as well as free shipping in the US. This dress is so comfortable and cute, and a total steal. You can shop it HERE. (I am wearing a small)
It is not easy to find good fitting workout shorts. I find they are either too short or too tight. So, when my husband surprised me with a few new pieces, including the Speed Short H20 and their new tank, the Fast Lane Singlet I was excited to give them a try.
This short is hands down the best fitting workout short I have tried. I like the length, how lightweight they are, and the fact that they are lined! Nobody wants to see your lady parts when you are working out! They fit true to size, I took my typical Lululemon pant size.
The Fast Lane Singlet is very lightweight and unlined, which I like. It’s a looser fit, which is great for hot days! I hate when I am sweating and my clothes stick to my body. I like the mesh on the side and the slim racerback, which I think is very flattering.… Continue Reading
I was not blessed with long, full eyelashes. So, I have been wanting to try eyelash extensions after seeing them on my girlfriends who live in Chicago. I was excited to learn that Hoopla Studio ( my favorite place for nails) also does aesthetics; lash extensions being one of their services.
I decided to go with a partial set for the first time to see if I would like it. It took just an hour and it was easy and pain free. The hardest part was sitting still for an hour, with my eyes closed! I worked with Kim at their Leawood location, and she was fantastic.
Here is a before pic:
and the after!
I am going on week 2 with the lashes, and I absolutely love them. I think they are really natural looking, which is what I was going for. Without friends/relatives knowing, I have gotten compliments and questions on what mascara I am using!… Continue Reading
