Stuff I Like Lately

I've hardly gone shopping at all in months but now that the seasons are changing I'm starting to get the itch just a little bit. Here are a few things I'm loving lately-

Zara Polka Dot Blouse - $59.90

I found this blouse while browsing on my phone and was kind of frantically zooming in thinking, "I think I might LOVE this top." I pulled it up on my computer when I got home and, sure enough. Love. Sadly more than I'd spend on a trendy, polyester piece. Especially because I've heard Zara's quality can be iffy. Can anyone confirm? Deny?

Everlane Tops - $15 - $80

Have you heard of Everlane? Basically, they sell nicer stuff without the middle man so prices are really reasonable. I have a couple of their tees and the fabric is so much nicer than my other tees. I got some of their men's shirts for Aaron and his brother for Christmas. This silk blouse is high on my list of classics I might be willing to shell out for. Someday.

ASOS dress - $49.25

I've never been a big fan of green but since dying my hair red I've come around. The shape and color of this dress are total multitaskers- you could dress it up or down and wear it just about any time of year. This is a serious contender for my Christmas dress.

Grey Dot TOMs - $54

Even Janssen, who dislikes TOMs, thinks these are cute. I checked their website for the first time in a very long while last week and was pleasantly surprised by all the new(ish) offerings. I love that they've taken their wedges into booties and strappy sandals.

Thanksgiving is almost here! My sister is in town for three whole weeks and my brother is coming home from his 2 year mission for our church in less than 2 weeks. I'm having a good month :)


  1. Unfortunately, I can confirm that Zara can be iffy. That said, I have a jean skirt from Zara that's pushing 8 years old and is still going strong (not to mention I've had people offer me money for it which makes me love it even more).

  2. I think that green dress would look great with your hair. Personally. I'm a huge fan of this color. I may have to get this dress!

    I, like Janssen, dislike Toms. But those polka dots are cute. I'll give you that.

  3. It just makes my day when you post.

    Also, we should go shopping together. Or, you know, visit each other.

  4. That green is gorgeous! You should get the dress. And yes, Zara's quality sucks. Not a fan of them at all.

  5. Have a black polka dot blouse (wearing it as I type :) and love it! I have been surprised how often I pull it out to wear with different outfits now! It is from JCrew and must say I don't love the collar. Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. AHHHH I LOVE YOUR NEW HEADER. SO MUCH. Did you write that yourself? Because I was actually thinking about how pretty your calligraphy was the other day and was wondering how much you'd charge to re-do my banner.

    Also, as a person who dislikes the traditional Toms as well, those ARE cute.

    AND ONE MORE THING. You have a few Everlane shirts? I was thinking about getting one, but wasn't really sure about the fit. Which one do you have? how does it fit? I like looser fit, should I size up? So many questions :)

  7. Just found your blog and love it! You have great style, girl! xo.
