Style Quickie: 2 Sizzling Summer Skirt Trends


First off, the maxi skirt in a vibrant hue.  I love the look of pairing these with a plain white tank, adorable wedges, huge sunglasses, and sparkling gold jewelry.  It's a simple outfit that can be dressed down for day-to-day errands or dressed up for date night.  Now I just have to decide between a turquoise skirt and a hot pink one... Decisions, decisions.  


Secondly, we have the hi low hem.  Hi low.  Mullet.  Midi.  Whatever blows your skirt up.  (Hehe!)  I'm pretty much in love with this skirt hem, especially when it also involves pleats and sheer fabric.  A floral hi low skirt with a gray tank plus contrasting belt and heels is an adorable date night look, right?  The skirts and dresses also suit the office, a wedding, brunch with the girls, or any other fabulous event.  

Which do you like best?  Maxi or midi?  I can't decide!


I love maxis! I don't know if I can pull one off though, but once I find one I adore I am certainly going to try!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
