Hi-Lo, Hi-Lo...it's off to work we go! Somehow this little ditty sung by seven adorable dwarfs has turned into a fashion trend! Some call it the mullet dress (which I despise), but more commonly the short in the front and long in the back skirt is called "Hi-Lo". cuter, no? I am definitely feeling this style in moderation, especially the one worn by Miss Khloe Kardashian Odom. I think the addition of sleeves makes it look much more sophisticated, while still being young and fun and appropriate.

So, I'm basically obsessed with the jeans Aria wore in this week's episode of Pretty Little Liars. Her style has been so on point lately! Anyway, everyone is probably going to snap these up quickly, but they are available on multiple sites. I also found a (slightly) less expensive pair in the reverse colors. I might actually like them better!

You know that moment you realize that summer is almost over and it's time to stop buying flip flops and tank tops? Well, friends, that moment has arrived! Yes, I know it's still crazy hot out, but start looking for pieces that will help you transition into fall as the cool night breezes start becoming more prevalent. There are always great sales going on, and right now stores are trying to get rid of their summer inventory to make room for fall- so take full advantage, but try to find items that you can layer into autumn. Here are some of my picks you can wear now and wear later!
Sometimes, something is so weird- that it works. I'm not saying that is, or is not, the case with what I am about to show you. Peplum...pants?! I know, I know, right? I am not here to endorse this wacky trend that I can only imagine was created by our British friends across the pond; I'm merely putting it out there for discussion. Of course teeny, tiny Rachel Bilson looks adorbs in them, but remember what your mother always taught you "Just because it looks good on Rachel Bilson does not mean it will look good on you!" If I had a nickel for every time my mother laid these words of wisdom upon me- I'd be rich enough to buy these Alexander McQueen creations! These silly and yet somehow chic circus pants aren't quite mainstream enough yet to find a cheap pair, but they are starting to pop up, so I'd expect to see some variation at an H&M by winter time. So tell me, would you give these pants a try?

That's right- it's another post about stripes! I can't help it. As we soak up these last weeks of summer I want to take full advantage of tutti frutti, bright and bold colors! Check out this absolutely adorable ensem from Jessica Alba. This works for the office, running errands, date nights- just everything! Def a closet staple. Pair her skirt (available in short or long) with one of these chic blazers and you're good to go!
Amazing alternative from an earlier post- a little over $20!
It's time for a PLL post! I should have known as I swooned over one of Aria's dresses in this week's episode that style icon Rachel Zoe was behind it! I DIE! So chic, such perfection. It's not Aria's normal look, but she was trying to impress Mrs. Fitz...gerald. Oh, and good news- it's on sale!

Listen, I didn't mean for this to happen. I don't really believe it myself. But, lately Kris Jenner...well, she's kind of workin' it! I immediately became obsessed with her cat-eye sunglasses in last week's episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" where she met up with her ex. You know the one that broke up her marriage with former husband and OJ lawyer Robert Kardashian? I digress. The point is, in this moment, her style is spot-on. A stunning pair of sunnies can absolutely make an entire outfit. I've found the ones she wore along with some others that range in price from "notice me" to "cheapie".
