    Your arms are incredibly toned! What do you do to get that definition?!

      Thank you! I do a very random collection of things pretty sporadically, but would recommend checking out my new “Get Fit” series on the site for some ideas! :)

    Would it be possible to stop truncating your posts? It’s very inconvenient for your followers who use google reader. To be honest, when bloggers start truncating posts and I can no longer read them all in one place, I just unfollow. And I would be sad to do so because I like your blog!

      Hey Anon – I really appreciate your request and totally understand your sentiment. One of the main reasons that I started doing that was because it allows my page (and each post) to load much more quickly and I had gotten some feedback about slow load-times.

      I always include an image above the fold, so that you can hopefully see what the overarching theme of the post is about, and that way you can decide whether or not you want to view the whole thing. I’d hate to lose you as a reader, so I hope you’ll consider staying subscribed despite the inconvenience! :) XO

    What a great outfit! I am lusting after your purse. I’ve been wanting one forever but just can’t justify the luxury.

    I really like this leather panel top – love the cut and that it doesn’t look like a biker chic top.


  • Reply Courtney August 9, 2012 at 6:28 am

    I love this outfit; especially the triple-watches! The stacked bangles and watches echo the stripes in the skirt in a really fun way. I’m excited to try that soon.
