Oh how I have come to love the weekends! Before my son was born my schedule was so erratic that weekends meant nothing to me but now that I’m on more of a Monday thru Friday work/school week I appreciate the whole TGIF sentiment! Friday evenings are always our family dinner out night, usually sushi or Mexican, it’s our opportunity to relax, regroup and reconnect after a long work week. It also gives me a reason to get out of my “working from home” attire and put on something cute like this flirty scuba skirt (which is now on sale at Bloomies!) and some strappy heels! Happy FriYaY… love and appreciation, Zia
I had been looking for a denim pencil skirt for about five minutes when this one popped up on my screen, I ordered it immediately and was definitely not disappointed when it arrived! Its soft, comfortable and has buttons, I don’t doubt for a second that I will get a lot of use from it this summer! I paired it up with this embroidered peasant top that came from my long defunct store but it certainly has not lost its charm. What is it about Wednesdays? My head is a ball of uninspired confusion today. Perhaps part of it is saying goodbye to my mama as her visit has come to an end and is returning home to Canada today…Well Happy Hump Day to you, until Friday, xoxox Zia
I have always loved a shirtdress! Versatility, comfort and remiders of Jackie O’s summers in Capri come to mind as immediate reasons why. I have worn this shirtdress to the office with a white blazer thrown on and for lunch with gladiators sandals and a hat, you just cant go wrong! These fringed booties have a little bittersweet story behind them, they were purchased on major sale which is always a good thing, but it was during Pipelime’s closing sale which I am so sad about, wherever will I shop after this week??
I had a most wonderful weekend celebrating my little boy’s 8th birthday, I just can’t believe how quickly that went by. He has grown into the most amazing little human being and I couldn’t be more proud of the sweet, intelligent, compassionate nature & science lover that he has become!
I had the distinct pleasure of being invited to the Fashion For Breakfast event in West Hollywood yesterday. I love the sense of community in the fashion industry it’s definitely far more supportive than the entertainment biz! I met some great new girls, ran into some bloggers I knew from before and I even met a blogger or two I greatly admire, I admittedly felt a little star struck. I have a house full of family in town this weekend to help celebrate my little guy’s 8th birthday on Sunday, I hate to sound so cliché but it’s crazy how fast time zooms by… Hold on tight to your loved ones and enjoy your weekend! xoxo Zia
Happy mid-week to you, I hope all is going very smoothly… I have some exciting news to share: The Hunter Collector now has an Android App! You can download it HERE for free and always have new posts at your fingertips! With the app you will also recieve updates and be the first to know about any giveaways…And speaking of having apps at your fingertips I’m loving this Empire phone case. It’s perfect for those days where you don’t need (or want) to haul an entire bag around and just need your license, a few credit cards and the all important cell phone, absolutely perfect for the beach or an outdoor concert! Thanks for stopping by, xo Zia
I bought these eyelet shorts when I was 19 years old and they have without question stood the test of time both in quality and style. I wear them at least once every summer, I admit I’m very fortunate to still be able to fit in them even after child birth but this is what I’m talking about when I stress the importance of going with quality (I’m not going to say over quantity because I like quantity too much!) and quality can be acquired without spending a ton of money if you just hunt for it! Any of you get super lucky and score something from the Lily Pulitzer for Target line yesterday? I tried, first on the website to no avail then at my local store which was bone dry by 9:45 AM. Crazy! At 10:00 I saw the store employees carting away the merchandising signs. Well if you really must have a piece of it, it’s now all available at a premium on Ebay…I guess not all good things last!
For someone who is a self-professed skirts only kind of girl I have been wearing a LOT of pants lately! I’m positive it has something to do with the fluid, leg lengthening, comfort of the culottes, palazzo and flared styles that are so hot right now. Well, whatever it is I’m enjoying the casual yet chic change of pace and casual is exactly what I need for a relaxing weekend at home with my family, thanks for reading! xoxo Zia
As you may or may not know my philosophy toward shopping is all about getting the killer deal on the best items. And that means spending less on quality pieces so that you can wear them time and time again and maybe even do what my mama did and pass them down to your own daughter. If you haven’t noticed I now have a tab on the menu bar labeled “SHOP DEALS” here you will find coupons for discounts at some of your favorite stores, who doesn’t love a deal? I hope you are having a great week so far and have already done your taxes so you’re not scrambling to get them done today (side note: I am a tax expert if you need any advice feel free to drop me a note) xo Zia
