there’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than with a nice lunch out {with a glass of bubbly} followed by cake {better yet, a cupcake}. this past weekend i celebrated my 27th birthday with family in omaha, ne.  i think i will always be 25 at heart {at least that’s what i always mistakenly enter on the elliptical at the gym}.  anyways, here’s to another year of fashion, travel, dining, and cupcakes!

little white dress


dress <lush>, wedges <bucco>, clutch <betsey johnson>, necklace <j.crew>, bracelet <anthropologie>, rings <banana republic and boutique find>, sunnies <diane von furstenberg>

this look is all about the details.  a little white dress can be so beautiful by itself, but can also be easily accessorized given it’s simplicity.  the eyelet details in the dress pairs perfectly with the architecture of this statement necklace.  likewise, the design on the wedges couples well with the clutch’s pattern.  since this look is somewhat romantic, i added a couple swept-back braids.  this look is perfect for a sunday brunch.

easy breezy

this is the perfect summer look for a blazing hot day.  the dress is lightweight and can be worn for nearly any occasion.  here, i wore it for the opening of a new gallery, the art of golf at the oklahoma city museum of art.  what i love about this dress, it that it is very versatile; it can easily be layered with accessories to dress it up.  last night, i wore it with a big statement necklace.  the white details of this necklace nicely contrasts the royal blue.  i had to have my hair back on this crazy hot day.  one of my good friends recommended a fishtail braid.  i finally tried it…and love it! i love this easy breezy, summer look!
