Get This (Arm) Party Started

When Outfits Epic Fail…

If I told you that the only item that wasn’t changed fifty times in this outfit was the leather pants, would you believe me? I walked out ready to go on our date, and [houston] looked at my sequin top, white undershirt, and chambray button down (unbuttoned) and gave me a dubious look. I knew right away that there was too much going on. So, I toned it all down with a simple silk & satin Kensie top (love that brand!), bright orange embossed belt, and of course, my arm party.

…New shoes are a pick me up!

I couldn’t wait to wear these mary janes by Nine West (they’ll be available in early October for the reptile prints, late September for suede). I had been waiting for them to come in the mail ever since I picked them out of the lookbook months ago, and here they are!! You will need to get your hands on a pair–I think you can preorder, actually. They’re so hot for fall.

Arm Party: Shashi bracelets (c/o) | Banana Republic wrap bracelet | Michael Kors watch | “diamonique” tennis bracelet | James Avery hook bangle | David Yurman bracelets

    I actually like too many things about this outfit to name them all. Okay, here's a few: the shoes (wow), leather pants that look classic chic, sparkly clutch, metallic nail polish, pop of orange. And the Arm Party!!! I've been talking about that for a few days and sending people to your blog. My arms pre-partied today. They had fun.

    I really love that bow in your hair – and that state necklace is really cool and quirky!

  7. 08.02.2011 / 3:18 am

    Love the way your belt pops against the otherwise neutral colors!

  8. 08.02.2011 / 5:01 am

    great outfit..i know what you mean about changing 50 times except that one piece you really want to wear!

  9. 08.02.2011 / 5:09 am

    Haha, I'm so glad to know I am not the only one who still makes slightly dubious fashion choices! You ended up looking amazing though, I love the way the belt pops, and your hair clip is adorable xo

    Great outfit, whatever you changed out of this was the right thing to change into. I am a HUGE Nine west fan and would have loved more shoe shots–I know, I know…this one is about the "Arm Party". But everyday is a shoe party right?

    I think I'm super jealous of your ability to wear gold watches…like I just don't think it's me, though I admire the look.

  19. 08.02.2011 / 9:22 am

    You are beautiful! I love how you rock large hair accessories

  20. 08.02.2011 / 10:48 am

    You look fantastic, as always. I am pretty obsessed with 9 west's fall offerings. They've really upped the ante 🙂

  21. 08.02.2011 / 11:01 am

    I bought that same belt from Target and it's been one of my favorites! I love how bright it is and that it's super flexible so it holds up well to being tied.

  22. 08.02.2011 / 11:52 am

    Summer leather! Fabulous hun! SoCal's getting so dang hot, I can't wait for Fall to come!
    You look stunning!


  23. 08.02.2011 / 1:09 pm

    I love how your leather pants aren't skintight, but still look so good! But aren't they ridic hot in the Texas heat? I'm assuming you just ran from a/c to a/c, lol. That's how I do it 🙂

  24. 08.02.2011 / 4:00 pm

    Those shoes are amazing!! Love your arm party!

  25. 08.02.2011 / 9:12 pm

    Love the top!!

  26. 08.02.2011 / 10:06 pm

    Those shoes are soooooo cute, especially the turquoise ones. I really like your orange belt, it's a beautiful accent of color.

  27. 08.02.2011 / 11:59 pm

    I'm obsessed with watches lately, I love that one you are wearing. I had great fun with my arm party yesterday!
