Hello kitty cats! This cat print dress is certainly not a shy print, but I do love it. I think the fact that it’s black and white makes it much more wearable and it’s easy to throw on when I’m not quite sure what to wear.
It felt more like summer than fall this past weekend, but I don’t mind since it’s still warm enough to bare my legs. I’m going to hold off on tights for as long as I can! The leaves have started to change colors and I think they’re so pretty. Since I grew up in California, I didn’t really see that seasonal transformation until I moved to the East Coast.
It’s been so nice having some time off work and hanging out with my sister. With the sun shining and my iced coffee in hand, I’m a happy girl. Can it always be like this?

Here are a few things that I loved in July:
– Lupita’s Interview in Vogue Magazine. I was so excited when I saw that Lupita was going to be on the cover of Vogue. I finally got around to reading her interview and it was so good. I continue to admire her and if you’re a Lupita fan, you’ll definitely want to check out this interview.
– Julep Nail Color Kam. I may have like six other mint green nail polishes, but they’re all different. This one by Julep is my new favorite of the bunch and you can see what it looks like on my nails here.
– The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides. I was really excited to read this one. I posted a picture at the beginning of last month and several people commented about how much they love this book. I finished it recently and thought it was so good. The longer I think about it and reflect on it, the more I like it. At some point soon, I’ll watch the movie directed by Sofia Coppola.
– Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl in Black. I was looking for an eyeliner that I could use on my waterline and this one works really well. It’s so creamy and smooth. Now I need a new eyeliner pen for cat eye flicks because my previous one dried out. Any recommendations for one that makes it easier to do a cat eye for an eyeliner noob like me?
Tell me: What were your July favorites?
You guys seemed to like my fall nail polish guide, so I thought it was high time I put together another one for spring. I’m starting to see a few signs of spring around, just enough to give me hope that winter might actually be coming to an end. It certainly seems like the spring showers have begun- I got drenched on my way home from work on Wednesday (the one day I forget my umbrella at home!). As you can see, there are no neutrals here- I’m all about happy colors to banish the last few dreary days of winter.
H&M Hat and Mittens (love this soft grey color) // H&M Knit Sweater (a perfect winter sweater) // Julep Little Lights Set (this set is way too adorable) // Aeropostale Bubble Dot Scarf (I have this scarf and can vouch for its coziness!) // Furbish Ace Bottle Opener (how fun is this bottle opener?) // Modcloth Write Me Notecard Set (because you can never have enough stationery) // Madewell Sunglasses Case (I’m loving this plaid case) // Nate Berkus for Target Decorative Box (a pretty box for storage) // Target Crossbody Handbag (this bag would be perfect for holiday festivities) // Pretty Polaroid Notes (write on these or use them as decoration) // H&M Glass Bottle (a pretty bottle for your bar) // Gold Stripe Mini Emergency Kit (a cute and practical gift)
