..Lunch Date

The deets: MinkPink dress; J.Crew blazer; Steve Madden sandals & bag; Lisa Leonard necklace c/o; Essie "Mint Candy Apple" polish; Laura Mercier "Tulip" gloss.

I was out at Fairfax Corner last weekend for part of a really fun upcoming project that I can't wait to share with you. While out there me and the boy decided to give Ozzie's a try. The food was delish and the weather could not have been more perfect which made for a nice little Saturday. I normally detest wearing flats in public (it's kinda my personal nightmare) because they make me look really stumpy and emphasize my short stalky legs, but as I get older and wiser I realize sometimes it's more important to be comfortable than to appear a tiny bit slimmer. It's hard to enjoy every moment of your day when your brain is constantly going back to how much those shoes pinch your feet, #amiright?

..Luxe Look for Less

..White Lace-Up Heels
Pour la Victoire "Shanna" $245 | ShoeDazzle "Loretta" $39.95

Just a little something to brighten your day up here. I have been stalking the PLV "Shanna" for over a year now ever since I saw them on all the ShopBop models a couple of seasons ago. I really wanted them in pink but love them in white for summer! Who doesn't need a pair of adorable white lace-ups in their life? So cute for all the breezy dresses I have in my multiple fantasy-land 50 item long shopping carts all over the web. Designer look for under $40? Done and done!

You guys. I got to be part of one of the coolest blogger projects of all time (check out this behind the scenes vid). Shell B Cheri's brainchild #StyledbyShellBCheri came to life a couple of weekends ago and the experience was pretty great (seriously check out that hashtag there is tons of great content). She asked each of us (fourteen bloggers in total) to pick out a problem item (or just something you wanted her to style up) from our closet and she would come on over and work her magic on it. My item was this pair of Shoemint heels. For those of you who know what Shoemint is, I forgot to "skip the month" and ended up just picking these shoes out because they were the cutest ones on the site at the time and I had a credit sitting there. One year later I had only broken them out once or twice. Something about the navy and black and laces just didn't work with much of my closet and they were collecting dust on my shoe rack. Enter Shell B and this outfit was born.

..Manic Trout

The deets: Torn by Ronny Kobo top; J.Crew skirt; ALDO heels; Manic Trout necklace (c/o); Michael Kors watch; Coach bag; J.Crew bracelet.

I recently discovered a super unique jewelry line called Manic Trout, which designer Sierra Bailey describes as a "fusion of edginess and vintage elegance" (a.k.a. the perfect combo - I want to use that to describe EVERYTHING I love now). Sierra uses all kinds of gorgeous fancy things like gemstones, vintage textiles, chandelier crystals, brass animals, and Czech glass to make some pretty awesome stuff. My favorites were part of her "Statement Critter Necklace" line because I love animals and think they are fun to incorporate into your accessories (and life in general, obviously). I am very drawn to elephants recently, so naturally I had to have this adorable brass elephant necklace that has what I have decided is a mama and baby. So cute! Also, you should check out this totally unrelated elephant adorableness.

BONUS: You can get your own little critter necklace (or anything else you dig from the Manic Trout site) for 20% off with code "currentlycoveting" at checkout. Enjoy!
