THE STAPLES

There are alot of things that make me happy but a good latte, comfy denim and a white tee are some of my favorites. During the long weekend I finally picked up a couple pairs of Baldwin Denim at Standard after Patrick had been raving about how comfortable his new pair was.  I got the Andi Boyfriend (wearing above), which is a more relaxed fit, perfect for weekend errands and The Ten, a skinny fit, in raw selvage denim.  My favorite part of these jeans is that they form to your body and the denim fades differently for every person.  Patrick and I are both all about supporting local companies, so we love that Baldwin Denim started here in Kansas City. If you are not from around KC, don’t worry because you can buy them on Shopbop or their website

DANIEL WELLINGTON + ART


For the last year I have been in search of the perfect men’s style watch. Ya know, like the standard gold Michael Kors that almost every girl I know has. Don’t get me wrong, I love that watch but every time I tried it on it never really looked good on my wrist. The bulkiness of the watch was always the issue, so I continued my search.  A few months ago I spotted this Daniel Wellington on Samantha of Could I Have That and have been obsessing ever since.  It is the perfect watch for my wrist- still large enough, but lays flat on my arm.  It has quickly become one of my favorite accessories. 

Did I ever tell you guys that I am a total Art History nerd?  My favorite classes in college were French Impressionism and Art Since 1945, possibly because of the professors but maybe just because I could pronounce the names of the artists (African Art was not my cup of tea).  Recently I have been pulling out my old art books to fill some book shelves. I had fun browsing through the pages of some of my favorite artists, like Willem de Kooning and Andy Warhol.

LOVE YOU, FRIDAY

TGIF lovies! I don’t know if I have ever been so excited for a work week to be over more than this one (I think it must be a full moon because everyone is a little nutty around this joint).  I am definitely taking full advantage of casual Friday by wearing this with these and a top knot since I am taking off a little early to go pick up some great finds Michelle and I found on Craigslist and get my haircut (goodbyte split ends!). Tonight I am stoked to have dinner and drinks with Melanie, Sarah, Michelle and Lindsay at Louie’s Wine Dive.  I will also be attempting some new things this weekend that include using this, making tortilla soup in my new crock pot , and painting my nails this color (I am normally a red girl, my favorite is Essie Clambake).  

Hope you all have a Happy Friday.  Also I am so excited to be over on GOLP (Girl of Lincoln Park) today talking about my favorite Spring trends.  Stop bye and say hello!
