To say I have a thing for crop tops would be an understatement. Almost every top I add to my cart from Shopbop is cropped and usually sheer. Kain label makes some of the best tops, but make sure you dry clean them. I washed one once on cold and did not dry it, but it never looked the same. I blame the 10% silk fabric component. These Dior Bonnie Wedges are so comfortable, yet tough at the same time. They are perfect in tricky bar situations with friends who are always close to spilling their drinks. It hasn't happened to me yet, but I have had a few close calls. Multi chain necklaces are my go to jewelry pieces for every outfit. Ben-Amun makes some of the best costume jewelry and if you can catch a sale on Gilt Group you will be a happy shopper! This American Apparel Afrika skirt leaves nothing to the imagination and I like that. Why hide behind your clothes?
Happy 4th of July!

Any piece of clothing that has a cat on it usually catches my eye and I fall in love. It's probably because my lovely boyfriend is allergic to cats and I grew up with lots of cats around and only one dog. Now I am surrounded by three dogs and wishing I had a cat. I used to collect all these glass knickknacks of cats when I was a kid and my room was full of them. I especially love cats with long black fur because they remind me of my favorite cat Speedy. He had beautiful green eyes and a tuft of white hair on his neck, but the rest of him was all long black hair. It is funny I even named him Speedy because he really wasn't that fast, but as a kid that was the name I came up with for him.
These boots are the most comfortable boots I own. As with the other Camilla shoes I wore previously, these have a lug sole that makes even the longest commutes a breeze. They look like a boot that means business and could potentially kick some butt if needed. I am trying to wear all my boots before it gets too hot and this weather has been perfect for them, slightly cool, but a little warmer and most of the snow has melted.
This American Apparel mesh dress has come in pretty handy and I love how it looks with this dress. I just turned a summer dress into a winter/spring dress. All you need to add is a leather jacket or faux fur coat. This outfit seemed like the perfect attire for hanging out and shooting pool and since I am such a big pool shark it only seemed fitting that I show you our pool table. Paul Newman would have been proud of the way I fleeced my boyfriend's wallet after the shoot when I beat him at eight-ball.

My boyfriend and I went out for movie night on Wednesday and had a blast. We went to Landmark Theatres where you can get VIP seating and services for a little extra money. Imagine free flowing buttery movie theater style popcorn and soda brought to your seat all throughout the movie. The only downside was my bladder. I missed a few parts in the movie due to some bathroom pit stops. Too much soda can do that, but you need some with the buttery, salty popcorn.
I think I was the most dressed up one at the movie theater, but that's okay. I wanted to look good for our date night, yet still be comfy for the long movie. I decided to break out an American Apparel dress as that is somewhat of a fashion blogger must, right? It seems like everyone owns one and it is a perfect little dress. I have it in black too, but I wanted to wear it in gray for a change. I absolutely love this Elizabeth and James blazer. I think the color and fit is gorgeous. The only downside was all the time I spent steaming it when it arrived from Gilt. You never realize how much of a workout steaming can be until you try to steam a wool blazer. My arms were pretty sore since I am quite the perfectionist in getting every wrinkle and crease out.
The shoes are my favorite part of the outfit. Look at the tread and traction on the soles of these beauties. I could have walked painlessly for miles and looked chic at the same time. I love Camilla's shoes and this particular pair is great when there is some moisture on the ground. That rubber sole works wonders. These earrings were a cute addition to really top off the outfit. I really like the color of them and the gold tassel. This beret is extra soft and comfy and added some extra warmth from the cool air.
Teddi decided to join in on some photos so I hope you don't mind. She was inspecting my outfit for the night, but wasn't too happy with it since (as you can see) she prefers the "au naturel" look. She always gets nervous when she knows I am leaving the house and going out for the night. She prefers me to stay at home and play with her and all her favorite toys.
