This weekend, I did some major sprucing up around this here blog. How does she look? It’s been a few years since my last redesign so I figured now was as good a time as any to make some changes. First up, the logo. I hired my friend, Eva Black, to hand letter The Style Eater in her famous watercolor cursive and it turned out exactly how I envisioned. I mean, HOW COOL, RIGHT? I love it. Thanks, Eva!
As for the design, it’s a Blogzilla Studio theme (the mignon!) and let me tell you, they know a thing or two about making good-looking blogs. Their designs are so chic and minimal. I’ve been searching high and low for a reasonably priced, yet super cool design for SO LONG, I can’t even tell you.
Anyway, take a looksie around. There are a few new details, like a rotating list of my current favorite things (at the top!), some fun sharing tools in the posts, and an easier way to subscribe via feedly, bloglovin, and rss.
Other things I did this weekend:
-almond-macadamia milk lattes from go get em tiger
–venice in the rain
-looked at all the wedding venues
Free People dress
Birkenstocks (mine are Amalfi’s)
I’m really over this dreary, overcast, depressing weather we’ve been having the last few weeks. The sun almost never comes out and and when it does, it’s not until 3 in the afternoon. What gives, Dallas Raines??? (that’s the name of our weatherman in these parts, don’t judge, he was born with that name…maybe…)
In order to offset this sucky weather, I’ve decided to add a little color into my life, this time in the form of coral. I’m really loving the various shades of coral right now, from the brightest pinkish corals to the subtle orangy ones. It’s such a fun, bright color that adds a bit of sunshine to the even gloomiest of days.

It may be nearing 100 degrees today but that’s not stopping me from shopping for a fall wardrobe. Right now I’m browsing for a sweater that I can live in during the colder months (and by cold, I mean “mild”). You know the kind: comfy, cozy, and full of love. My requirements for such a sweater are as follows:
- Large and IN CHARGE. I’m talking oversized and ill-fitted – as if it came straight out of an episode of Blossom circa 1990.
- Camel-colored. Tan is the new black……obvs.
- The chunkier, the better. It is called a “chunky sweater,” am I right? Or did I make that name up…
- Slouchy and soft. Double as a blanket, perhaps?
- Versatile. It must look equally good in public as it does sprawled on a couch next to hot cocoa and an empty dvd box.
- Breathable. I can’t stand a sweater that suffocates me. I need some filtration!
So you can only imagine that when I spotted this Free People Front & Center Pullover, it was simply meant to be.

This Free People We The Free Mala Strana Dress is the ultimate floral frock. It’s every bit girly and quintessentially spring. Yet paired with tights, combat boots, and a chunky sweater, it works perfectly well at the end of these winter months as well. It adds just the right amount of color into your winterized wardrobe.
This spring especially is witnessing a revival of 1990s-level floral. That means a whole lot of flowers, my friends. Adding a touch of floral into your outfit will act as a transitioning tool in itself. Any kind of floral will do: blazers, cropped jackets, skirts, blouses, belts, etc. So bust out your favorite floral ensemble and let’s transition into spring…

Right now, I’m attempting to build a holiday party outfit around these Urban Outfitter’s sheer polka dot tights that I purchased a few weeks ago. You know by now that I’m really feeling patterned tights this season so I definitely want to incorporate them in my holiday party outfit.
But what shall I wear?? I don’t know if I should go ultra trendy and wear a velvet and/or sequin dress with shoulder pads or do something a little more classic. Since I’m currently exploring my options on Topshop, ASOS, and Bloomys, it looks like I’ll be heading in the trendy direction.
I don’t dress super trendy on a regular basis, but honestly, if I’m going the trendy route, it’s best to do so at a holiday party where everyone’s a bit tipsy on champagne and shrimp skewers. No one will even notice that I’m dressed for a 1984 prom and if they do, their colored judgment will instantly approve of those shoulder pads. More power to you and your lace, I always say.
Anyways, here is my short list for potential holiday party dresses, trendy or otherwise:
If you had time to click through all of these selections, then you, like me, have no life. Just kidding! But seriously, if you perused through these holiday dresses, you’ll notice that all of them are quite short in length and therefore, tights are a must. I’m trying to keep it classy girls!
When the holiday season rolls around the corner, I will pair my dresses with a chic, black ankle boot if I’m feeling bold or embellished flats if my feet start to hurt. Either way, I will attempt to deck the halls in the trendiest way possible.
