'The Lady Doth Protest Too Much'


I've been really digging denim on denim. Non fussy, to the point, and can be done for dinner, dancing or dabbling in the arts.  The trick for me is to keep the denim in the same color family and to use light, breathable pieces.  Of course I picked my favorite Free People jeans (first worn here), my Ralph Lauren chambray top (worn here), piled on the bracelets and strapped on my new Lita's. I gotta tell you guys, I think I'm hooked.  I swore that I would never get them since EVERYONE has them, but now I see why everyone has them.  These babies are UBER comfy! I can't get over how easy they are to walk in.  They may not be my last pair.




I've been wearing my Love, Cortnie clutch pretty much everyday since Cortnie from StyleLustPages sent it to me! It fits all my essentials and more and is much easier to carry around than my larger clutches.  Can't thank you enough, Cortnie!

Wore it with this too, but of course it pretty much goes with EVERYTHING!

Check out her other patterns and get one for yourself here!









What I'm Wearing:
Blouse: Ralph Lauren
Pants: Free People
Clutch: Love, Cortnie
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Lita
Bracelets: Jade Bangle (from HK), JCrew
Rings: YSL


Would love to thank Stacie of Pretty Birdie Brown and Rach of Sugar Filled Closet for awarding me the Tell Me About Yourself award.  What can I say, I love fashion, I shop and have been known to blow the rent on a pair of shoes and come up with an elaborate story to ward off the landlord, I will hide an article of clothing inside other articles of clothing on a really high rack or any other weird place in a store just so it'll be there for me when I come back...I'm just nuts I guess :)

Some fabulous blogs I'm reading now:

  28. Love this denim on denim look and the ruffle collar is super cute. Your lita's look amazing and the animal print just pops! Amazed by your poses again. I need to save the photos or something cause when I am posing I can't remember them.
    That is too funny. I totally do the hiding thing especially in places like TJ Max or Nordstrom Rack!

  58. I also love the jean/jean combo! You did it quite nicely though. I've been hearing a lot of things about the Lita's but my problem isnt comfort with them, I seem to drag my feet so the lst time I wore them I fell over myself trying to deal with the platform >.<
