Wish List Wednesday: Sonix Phone Cases

October 22, 2014

I may be on the cutting edge of fashion, but when it comes to tech gadgets, I’m slow to jump on the latest trends. My iPad is a first generation — as in, Apple has stopped supporting app updates because that thing is so ancient. And my cell phone? Don’t worry, I not rocking a Razor or anything (remember these?), but I did finally upgrade my iPhone to a 5S last week (get crazy!).

This means I’m mainly just excited to find a new case! Because sometimes it’s all about the accessories.

In my quest for the perfect phone case, I stumbled upon Sonix tech cases. Gosh, these cases are cute. And durable. I ended up ordering this one, but seeing as how we change jewelry daily, a solid rotation of cases is necessary, too, right?

Is It a Skirt… or a Dress?

October 20, 2014

Date night: flippy grey skirt

Today on SMT, we’ll be playing one of my favorite games: Is it a skirt… or a dress?!

At first glance, this appears to be a flippy skirt (made out of sweatshirt material, so comfy!) worn on the last warm evening of October. Buuuut…

Le Tote dress (worn as a skirt)

It’s actually… a dress! Funny story: I put my Le Tote membership on hold three months ago, so I was super confused last week when I received a shipping notification that my next tote was on its way. Huh? I guess my membership automatically renewed after the three month hold period. Oh shucks! [insert heavy sarcasm]. I guess I’ll have to do Le Tote again (if you haven’t tried it, do it! — Le Tote is like Netflix for clothing).

Here’s the dress in, you know, actual dress form.

French Connection Lucy Flare Dress | Le Tote

Totally cute. In fact, if you work with me, you’ll spot me wearing this as a dress with a chambray shirt underneath one day this week. I love a versatile piece of clothing — especially if you’re not a huge shopper or are trying to spend less on clothing. Something that can be worn two ways is basically the equivalent of buy one, get one free!

Here are a few more snaps of my date night outfit — I wore this to my husband’s birthday dinner. Nothing says “happy birthday” like “honey, can you take some outfit pics first???” (thanks, babe!). I’d say now it’s officially time to bust out the tights!

Pop of color: grey skirt, black sweater, coral purse

Wish List Wednesday: Evening Clutches

October 15, 2014

Have you attended a “black tie” wedding before? Later this month I’ll be attending my first super fancy wedding and I am thrilled. My husband will happily be dusting off his tuxedo — which means he’s thrown down the fashion gauntlet (without even knowing it!) and I need to step things up with a formal gown. Mission accepted.

I’ve decided to rent this gorgeous green Erin Fetherston dress from Rent the Runway. Next up on my shopping list is the perfect evening clutch. If I’ve attended your wedding in the past four years, there is a 100% chance you’ve seen me carrying the same silver clutch. I’d say I’m way overdue for a new fancy bag!

Here are 10 affordable clutches I’m currently considering — all of which will pair nicely with jeans for date night later this fall!

10 evening clutches under $100

1. River Island ($75) | 2. Missguided ($27) | 3. Lulu Townsend ($39) | 4. Kate Spade ($55) | 5. Aldo ($34) | 6. ASOS ($37) | 7. Nina ($58) | 8. Macy’s ($55) | 9. Express ($48) | 10. Jessica McClinktock ($58)
