My Stylish Sister!

My sister Kelly and I met some girlfriends downtown today for some lunch and shopping! So of course this meant we had to put on a cute summer outfit!  I especially loved Kelly's outfit, it was simple but still feminine and fabulous! Her skirt and shirt were both bought from Forever 21 and her shoes from Nordstrom.

Photo of the day!

I have decided to start a photo of the day, where I will post a photo that either I took or someone else took. The photo of the day will be something that really sparked my interest or I just found captivating. Today's photo is one I took of New York City while on a harbor cruise. Please feel free to leave comments!!

Music Inspiration

Last year my sister got me listening to Vampire Weekend and now I can't stop!!! They are a mix of alternative and indie rock. They recently(ish) released a new album Contra in January 2010 which is just as good as their first album. One of my favorites of theirs is M79, I suggest you listen to it!!! M79 inspired this look- feminine with a little menswear. Hope you like it!

Look Alike- Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire is definitely one of my all time favorite movies! It was amazing cinematography!! I loved all of Latika's outfits, they were modern but still had an Indian background. This look was my absolute favorite it is pretty simple but still fabulous!

My favorite fall.....Jackets!!

Fall is my favorite time for clothes because you can wear jeans, boots and a cute jacket! Jackets are definitely a staple in my closet. They are so easy to throw on but immediately makes you look sophisticated and put together. All of the jackets I picked are under $150. My favorite Fall 2010 jackets are shown below!

Old Navy

My favorite fall.....Boots!!

One definite Fall wardrobe essential are boots!!! They're great additions to almost any outfit. I tend to wear boots with little or no heels just because they are easier to walk in and you have more opportunities to wear them. All of the boots I have chosen are under $150. My favorite place to buy boots is definitely Nordstrom because they have a huge selection that includes many different prices and everyone is always really helpful.

My favorite fall.....Bags!!

Fall is quickly approaching and along with it many new bag styles. We are transitioning from beach ready, colorful totes to sleek and sophisticated satchels. I found five bags that all vary in price in hopes to meet everyone's budget.
Topshop $80
Topshop $60
Banana Republic $49.50
Nordstrom $198
Target $19.99

It is Garnier Fructis Style Sleek and Shine Anit-Humidity Smoothing Milk. It can be found at almost any drug store and usually costs about $4. Hope you like it!

Dress Like Annie Walker from Covert Affairs

Lately I have really been getting into a new spy show on USA called Covert Affairs. The whole story of the Covert Affairs is routing on its main character Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) and Auggie Anderson (Christopher Gorham), who are working in CIA military. Annie walker is fluent in six languages, has traveled all over the world and she gave the best performance out of all the other CIA trainees on every test. Annie is suddenly called by CIA headquarters to report for active duty as a field operative a month before her training is over. The show follows her through every mission she completes. Annie's style is very sophisticated and professional but when she goes undercover her entire wardrobe changes. My favorite outfit from her undercover work is shown below.

My Version:
Banana Republic

American Eagle

Makeup Look-Natural

Face- CG concealer, Maybelline blush (berry sorbet)
