Timeless Denim Every Girl Should Own


The thing I love about denim is that it's timeless. For instance I'm pretty sure I just got rid of my denim skirts a few years back and now they're trending again! However, this means I can justify spending a few extra bucks on some quality pieces since I know I'll have them for a while. If I'm wanting denim that is more affordable, I look at Topshop, Mango, Blank and Gap. Topshop has tons of shorts for $60 or under and I'm loving this skirt from Mango for $25. If I'm splurging, Shopbop and Revolve are my go-to's. What is your favorite store to shop for denim?

Saturday's Shopping Cart


Happy Saturday! This week I teamed up with the incredible people behind the Des Moines Art Center's Big Hair Ball to share a few fun outfit ideas for this year's theme: A Big Hair Blowout. This event is so much fun and the talent in top notch so join me Saturday, August 15, 2015 from 8 pm to midnight. Can't wait to see what you're going to wear!

Want to know more? The Big Hair Ball, which began in 2004 and occurs every other year, is one of the most highly anticipated events in the Des Moines area and statewide. Known for its modeled hairstyles, live music, and special performances, which celebrate hair as a form of artistic self-expression, the Big Hair Ball has been profiled extensively in local, state, and national media. The highlight of the evening is an hour-long choreographed runway program, produced entirely by local salons and a volunteer committee. Local boutiques also participate in the event by offering hair, nail, and make-up artistry to event attendees, which average more than 750.

My First Fall Wishlist



I know it might seem a few weeks earlier to start thinking fall wardrobe but when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in full swing, I just can't help it. If you couldn't tell, I'm craving a really neutral color palette. My wardrobe continues to get more basic which means more versatility. I haven't been spending on super trendy pieces but instead pieces that are more evergreen. I 1000% am getting these lace-up flats and will keep dreaming about the Chloe bag. A girl can dream, right?  If it wasn't for the wedding, that baby would be mine! I'm also currently coveting wool fedoras under $50, everyday booties under $150, AND everything from the Mango Sale. It's still 50-70% off—shits cray! But this fall and winter season I want to invest in a few more fun fur pieces. Check out these gorgeous ones from ML Furs. Totally lust-worthy! 

P.S. This weekend I'm heading to Omaha to pick up my wedding dress so follow along on Snapchat at Katalina_girl!
