Style: Jewels & Jeans


The fall weather can't come any sooner. Seeing as I won't be near a beach anytime soon this muggy New Orleans weather has got to go! Can't step outside for two minutes before bolting back indoors for a cold shower. But I did want to share my latest conquests, so for you guys I took the risk teehee. I picked up this jeweled short sleeve sweatshirt from H&M in efforts of adding some spice into my simple wardrobe. It'll be perfect come winter, especially as a layering piece. The bag by Alexander Wang was scooped up on for half off! It's sort of the best fall cross-body investment. Slick and sophisticated, but the kicker is it's reversible. You're seeing the black side. The other side is this textured red snakeskin print for my wilder nights. Swoon! Ok back to the no-spending freeze.

Places: Loomed Nola

Loomed Nola, a Turkish towel company located at The Rink on Prytania Street (2727 Prytania Street, Ste 13), is one to keep on your radar if you're one to collect simply happy goods like textiles. With the help of Marcie Matthew's creative studio, Bloodhound Nola, Loomed recently rebranded and renovated their store. If you haven't visited, you must! It's airy and bright and just lovely. I love picking up the classic striped peshtemals as gifts for my friends.

A few months ago Molly, the owner and a MOTM friend, asked me to help style their Fall 2014 look book.  We focused on showing how versatile Turkish towels are.  While my peshtamel is my best friend at the beach, you can see how easily they integrate into the home, kitchen, and bathroom - from a rustic backdrop to a more traditional setting. And with such a wide range of carefully selected colors, there's a little something for everyone. Textiles swoon!

Style: Checks & Stripes


Online shopping mania strikes again in the Le household. And boy did it hit quick. I couldn't help myself to this skirt from ASOS the minute I laid eyes on it. The 'add to cart' button was pressed before I even had time to evaluate its worthiness.  With ASOS, I've learned you just can't wait. You have to pounce on the good stuff before they sell out. And truth be told, some of the best decisions we make are the impulsive ones. Hopefully I can maintain control as we segway into fall, but one thing's for sure - this skirt's coming with me wherever I go!
