Friday’s Most Wanted – Gap Jeans

I’ve never been a fan of white pants (mostly because I spill things on them the second I put them on), but I really like the way they look. I love these Gap 1969 Real Straight Skimmer Jeans, and especially the way they’re styled in this photo (the outfit is very much my style). I know not everyone loves Gap, but it’s always been one of my key stores to shop in because they have such staple pieces, and the Gap Body pieces are so incredibly soft. I love anything that’s made with a nice fabric.

Check out additional white-pant-outfits on Refinery29.com.

Friday’s Most Wanted – Salamander Bracelet

Hello all. Sorry that this post is a little late! Somehow someone logged into my account and changed my settings. There was no way for me to login, so I had to have everything restored to an earlier date this week – super annoying, but it happens. If anyone commented earlier this week on any of my previous posts, and your comment isn’t showing up on my blog, that’s probably why.

Anyway, this week’s most wanted piece is the adorable Alexis Bittar, Durban Gunmetal Salamander Bracelet. I love the dark green color, and that cute little salamander on top (with Swarovski crystals). Purchase this bracelet at www.charmandchain.com.

Monday Style Quote

R29: “You’ve done so many great things in fashion (and more) – what is your proudest accomplishment to date?”

“Being a successful woman in the world of fashion and retail. I am often the only woman among a room of male executives. It is empowering and drives me to do my best! I have a degree in environmental science, not fashion – I’m self-taught in design and retail with now 20 years experience, so everything I do in this industry seems like a tiny victory.” -Bethany Mayer, Owner of Surf Bazaar

Monday Style Quote

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
