Sunnies & Swimwear

I've been dreaming of the beach today, and all the cute swimwear and accessories on my packing list for the next chance I get to escape!  So far nothing beach related is on the calender, so I am biding my time and doing lots of hiking and Pilates!  When my schedule opens up I will sure be ready...

Product Placement

I am not selling you Perrier in these pictures.  I am tricking you into thinking I am so that you subconsciously look at my accessories!  I thought it would be fun to do some modeling with my new best friend, Grapefruit Perrier.  The bottle is so pretty it was begging for a photo opp. 

Seriously though, is that how advertising works?  When someone is obviously trying to sell you something, it is off putting.  So I wonder if they distract us with something so blatant we look the other way at the real thing they are trying to sell...  like at the grocery store, the aisles are filled with sale signs and price reductions that are obviously gimmicky so you know you don't need the products. Yet when you get to the checkout you find all the most delectable and tempting creations sitting quietly, not asking for a dime.  This, my friends, is where you splurge.

Speaking of grocery stores, I received a compliment on my new Joie perfume today in Whole Foods.  That made me happy.  It was from a man who allegedly wanted to buy it for his mom.  It is a sad day when you wear a new perfume and no one comments, no?

Gettin' Nautical

Obsessed with anchors lately for some reason.  I was coveting a teensy tiny diamond and gold anchor pendant necklace from Nordstrom for the longest time.  It was definitely out of my price range so I had to distract myself somehow.  Turns out I fell (almost) equally in love with a $6 pair of tiny gold-tone anchor studs from Urban Outfitters.  See what happens when you learn to control impulse buys!  

Also I am getting a husky puppy dog in the near future and am naming him Sailor.  I don't know if that is why I am subconsciously drawn to all things nautical, or if his name was a product of my existing anchor fixation.  Which came first: the anchor or the sailor?

While I figure that out,
Come sail away!

My Little Photoshoot

My outfit today!  And it's cheap (except for the accessories).  I have a weakness for designer accessories -eek!  I find the cutest outfits are always a mix of low and high end.  I like to sneak some budget fashion jewelry into an otherwise expensive outfit or vice versa.  Sometimes I go head to toe forever 21 with chic handbag or sunglasses!  No one can ever tell the rest of your outfit is thrifty if you wear at least one nice item :).  Here is me and my outfit having fun with my new camera app on my phone.  I tinted all the pics! Enjoy
