Now that you’ve seen the first look from the Spring Fling Fashion Show with Monkee’s, it’s time to unveil look #2. For those of you who have been following CFOC for a while, you know I’m a sucker for bright and colorful prints, especially florals. Well, paisley is no exception!
My eye was immediately drawn to this Jude Connally t-shirt dress … I’m pretty sure it’s the first thing I touched when I walked into Monkee’s! The nylon + spandex material is extremely comfortable and lightweight for those hot summer days ahead.
To avoid overwhelming the look, I simply paired the dress with these suede pink heels and some silver statement earrings.
A big thank you to Liz and Olivia at Monkee’s of Madeira for inviting me to join in on the Spring Fling festivities. Modeling is way more fun when you get to do it in beautiful clothes! Amirite? 🙂

Last week, I had the pleasure modeling at the Kenwood Country Club’s Ladies Spring Fling with Annie of Success on Stilettos and Kayla of The Professional Prep. Together, we wandered the luncheon wearing fabulous looks fashioned by Monkee’s of Madeira.
Monkee’s is a franchise of clothing boutiques, each carrying a collection of upscale designers and brands, like Draper James, Lilly Pulitzer, Jude Connally and Jack Rogers.
It was love at first sight when I stumbled upon a Monkee’s on Davidson College’s campus, so when I found out there was one in Cincinnati, I had to check it out!
For my first of two fashion show looks – #2 coming soon – I styled these uber comfortable white skinnies with an adorable OTS blouse. Finished off the look with my favorite summer wedges and some subtle jewelry, and voila!

Last weekend, the ladies of Thread Cincinnati and I were invited to hit up the Cincinnati Premium Outlets for a fun-filled (albeit rainy) day of shopping. We did this last year too (see my previous finds here and here) so we couldn’t wait to go back and score some more awesome deals. I bought this entire outfit – plus another pair of earrings and a tank – for under $150. You’re welcome, wallet!

There’s nothing like a great sale, especially when everything hasn’t been picked over yet! When spring inventory hit the shelves at GAP, I scored three amazing pieces, including this adorable confetti skirt.
Since then, I’ve dressed it up and down for many occasions, making it one of the most versatile skirts in my closet. I’ll definitely be styling it more this spring/summer. What’s your favorite clothing steal? Share yours with me in the comments below!

Nothing is better than time spent at home, especially when the majority is spent alongside family and friends. Every time I’m back in Buffalo, I make it a point to spend quality time with my bestie, Lucy. We typically find a hip spot downtown or in Elmwood Village to eat, drink and catch up as girlfriends do. This time, we added one more activity to our ritual: blog pictures.
Yes, that’s right, my best friend is also a fabulous blogger! Lucy blogs at Write. Style. Travel. and has already been recognized as one of the top bloggers in Buffalo! So with my camera in tow, we headed to Canalside (after a delicious rooftop dinner at Tappo) and went on our blogging mission.
And don’t forget to check out Lucy’s “Style Spotlight” here!
