With the weather as hot as it is here in Texas (although I hear other places are just as bad or worse this year) my uniform is basically shorts and a tank top.
When dressing it up make it a silk tank top, cute shorts and add some heels and you’re ready for a night on the town. Totally obsessed with these t-straps by the way…close up of the unique heels below.
Top – Vintage
Shorts – Area Boutique (Santa Barbara)
Shoes – Michael Kors
Clutch – JCPenny’s
P.S. My top is a light mint. You’ll just have to believe me.

Santa Margherita Wines is joining with The Beauty Bar to celebrate their 60th Anniversary, new Prosecco 52 and custom nail polishes. They will be hosting a fun event this Friday, June 1st at Austin’s Blackheart Bar located at 86 Rainey St.
Come by, purchase a glass of their wine or champagne and you get a free manicure! Not only that, you get to take home one of their shades for free as well. I’m loving them all and I’m sure it will be hard to choose but I’m leaning towards the Pinot Grigio or Sparkling Rose.
You can walk-in but spaces are limited so definitely RSVP to save a spot: http://tinyurl.com/SMBeautyBar
Also, Santa Margherita is giving away 200 (!) of their limited edition, custom nail polish kits with a makeup bag. You can go to their Facebook page to enter.
Hope to see you and your girlfriends there this Friday!

Owning my own business and being my own boss comes with a lot of perks – I set my own schedule, I can wear whatever I want and I’m pretty lenient on vacation requests. The tough part about running a business and maintaining a brand is of course marketing yourself and your work. I’m lucky enough to have a Marketing minor from UT which helps because I have to constantly sell my work to succeed. And I know that even in our times of the internet and social media, the number one rule is to always make sure you have business cards on hand.
So when I was offered a set of business cards from Printrunner.com I jumped at the chance. Printrunner.com is a full service, high-quality printing site where you can print business cards, banners and even fun stickers. And here’s your chance to win!
Your prize will be 250 standard size business cards printed on 14 point paper. The cards will have high quality UV coating and you can choose up to 4 colors on each side.
Giveaway ends on May 28th at Noon CST. It’s open to U.S. Residents and to folks 18 and above only. Check out Printrunner on Facebook and Twitter then leave a comment (with your email) below to enter.
In the meantime check out Printrunner.com and all the cool things you can print online!
**Disclaimer: I received a set of business cards in compensation for hosting this giveaway.**
UPDATE: Winner is Dana Beeman!

I had a skirt with a very similar print back in middle school. Crazy what comes back into style, isn’t it? And what doesn’t - my 1996 skirt was made of satin. Gross.

Yay! I was recently interviewed for an article on Top Fashion and Style Bloggers In Austin for Culture Map. They incorrectly tagged my primary blog as The Style Co-op (a blog I do co-write) but very cool nonetheless.
