I am so lusting after this skirt from Forever 21 for under $20!!!!! I spotted it yesterday in the window of Forever 21 while on a business trip to LA...but of course they were completely gone!! Just tried on line and smalls are sold out...so I am running to my local store, first thing in the morning with my fingers crossed I get super lucky!!!
I have been coveting a skirt in this new slightly longer length with belt loops! I just think this length is so flattering and very "modern"! What do you think?

Thought I would share a couple of quick photos from our father's day celebration! We love a "collage wall" at our house ...so Oden and I decided to create a special "father's day installation" for Ben. The idea was sparked from a great Kate Spade project I saw here....and because my husband is not so easy to shop for I liked the idea of giving him a "coupon" to pick out his choice of the "perfect" father's day treat!
Oden chose a few inexpensive gift ideas of his own, like this great wooden giraffe from Michael's and painted this fabulous self portrait at school, and then the rest are "coupons" Oden and I made for Dad. Oden gave his dad a coupon for a massage at the discounted price of only $1, while I gave coupons for a night of cooking, date night, and a free pass to be late! We had so much fun creating our little "art project"...and dad gets a gift that he loves!!!!

You may not know me personally...but you probably know a bit about my "style" from reading "gen's favorite"! So now's your chance to help!!! I need to order new business/calling cards......and I just can't decide! Too many great options at "iomoi"! Thoughts?

How charming is this water color by the talented Caitlin Mcgauley?! It just makes me smile! You probably recognize her work from Kate Spade...well now you can purchase your very own signed print! I'm adding this to my "must purchase for the new house" list!!!!!

I had to laugh when I stumbled on this photo of one of my "style favorites" Olivia Polermo wearing my dress!!!
I first spotted this fun "polka dot dress" at a great "designer discount store" in Nashville for $100 a few months ago.
I was immediately drawn to it.... although I had never heard of the designer (Bensoni). When I returned a second time and the dress was still there I could not resist!!! I am a lucky girl!!!!

So many darling new things at Kayce Hughes...you must stop by and check out! And yes, that is me making my "modeling debut" for Kayce!!! I had so much fun trying on all of kayce's fabulous new clothes that I had to pick a few of my "favorites" to come home with me!!!!
Perfect for looking stylish while heading to the pool or afternoon shopping!!! I have carried mine everywhere while on vacation in Miami!!!
Love the combination of grosgrain ribbon with this fabulous wood closure...so chic! Great for summer cocktail parties paired with a little sundress!
This is my go to skirt...great shape and length! Adorable with a simple tank and espadrilles for a totally "pulled together" and "comfortable" look!
This is one of those shirts you have to try on...but once you do you will be hooked! I love mine paired with fitted jeans and chunky shoes for a "modern" "relaxed" look!
Have fun shopping!!!!!!

Really you can't beat Forever 21 for great inexpensive jewelry! Right now I am loving the "bangle trend"....especially these wood and gold combinations! These are all available at Forever 21 right now for under $10 (yes that includes the stacks of multiples too)!!! What a great way to update your summer wardrobe!

I have always loved this simple "natural canvas teepee" my friend Sara has in her playroom! I fell in love all over again when I spotted a hand painted version in a Crew Cuts window this week! Adorable!!! Can't believe you can buy the teepee for $129..... think I I see a kid's painting project in our future!

Nothing makes me happier then a little "pick me up" for under $10! These fabulous napkins in classic marimekko patterns are just adorable! What great inspiration for setting a summer dinner table! Check out all the great marimekko finds at crateandbarrel.com!
