I was extremely pleased and surprised by this month’s (April 2010) issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly. I can’t remember the last time I flipped through their mag and got so many useful tid-bits from it. Maybe it’s just becuase I’m very much on the spring-bandwagon, or maybe they really stepped up their game on this issue. In any case, I’ve included a few iPhone (excuse the quality) pics of my favorite things from the issue. Enjoy, and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Hands down my favorite pick from the issue- The Lands End Canvas grey chambray shirt. I already ordered mine this morning ha. I mean come on, it’s $60 for this awesome shirt!

I already have a pair of desert boots, but these Calvin Klein Desert Boots kinda rock. And most people just don’t know how comfortable desert boots really are! (I happen to be wearing mine today)

This piece they did over an “updated college freshman look”. I think many should look to it for inspiration. Please take special notice when they say to throw out the sweat pants in favor of these khaki’s.

Speaking of khaki’s. I’m going to be picking up a pair of these these slim-fitting khaki’s from Gap ASAP. Classic certainly seems to be a big thing for spring… then again, when isn’t it?

Priciest clothing pick from the issue, this Marc by Marc Jacobs polo which goes for $150.

Okay maybe I lied, I’m sure the Lacoste blazer is more than $150, but without a price included… who knows :)? I really need to update my Lacoste polo’s, but I miss the small croc, I don’t like this new big one.

I want to get either the Bulova watch or the Michael Kors one… which do you think?

Alright making this another quickie because I have an 8:30 class and then I’m back to back until 12:30 and THEN I’m heading home to Tulsa right after that, so this is a pretty random post of stuff from the week that I didn’t feel fit with any other posts. Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

Silver Nike BootsFirst things first, my beloved Nike’s I just got yesterday… last pair didn’t even try them on in store because they were my size (okay well maybe a 1/2 size smaller than I like but meh). Got home, tried them on… WAY too small. Sadness.

IMGP1354At my second (or first) home. Gaylord College of Mass Communication here at OU.

Box of ChineseIn my opinion, the best take out Chinese restaurant in all of Norman, Happy Family. Gives a whole new meaning to take out box.

IMGP1345And finally, some very G-rated food porn  and something you have to try, sourdough bread and honey. My favorite snack in the world!

Okay running late now! Oh but on a side not, returning the Nike’s and getting these great laced up casual shoes I saw, so I’ll have pics up soon.

Marisa and I went shopping… again… despite my efforts to hold back… shocker I know. It was bound to happen and I had to get after someone yesterday but had a good review at work. So it was simultaneously therapy and a reward :D. Here are some pics from the trip. Enjoy! I know we did, but we really must get better at taking unposed pictures ha.

P1010501Scotch and Soda– love this shirt!
P1010502Didn’t end up getting this shirt, but Marisa loved itP1010504William Rast pants- I’ll have to get a close up so you can see them, they’re awesome
Lacoste High TopsThen these Lacoste shoes as well as a Ben Sherman sweater which I can’t believe we didn’t get a pic of

(edited by marisa– I only got this Michael Kors dress and a random ank– that picture was beyond disgusting so I will take a new one with the proper outfit on)

P1010505And I believe Marisa this dress and a tank–I really really like this last dress

Just purchased a pair of Seavees Ankle Desert Boots today, but what can I say? They were majorly on sale and I was really wanting a pair. They didn’t exactly have my size, so I had to order a 1/2 size up… Hopefully they won’t be too big though.

So this morning I shocked myself with the immense preppy-ness that oozed out of me. I bought these fantastic Theory linen shorts at Intermix on Tuesday during my lunch hour. Oh the dangers of working across from North Park. I am absolutely in love with them. I can’t really describe my style, but I usually tend towards neutrals– every time I put on a bold color I feel like I can’t have a personality because it is too overwhelming to the senses– mine included. For instance, if I wear something red I wont use a perfume. If I wear hoop earrings, I have to wear a white tank.  I am not a glitzy person at all.  Salmon scares me, but these shorts remind me of my mom’s Ralph Lauren salmon linen ankle-length pants that I used to LOVE wearing.

IMG_0454Anyways, these shorts have a gorgeous wrap over clip in the front, two perfect inch pleats in the front and they are pretty high wasted. Since andrew showed his abs in an earlier post I figured I’d do the same…haha just kidding, sorta. 

Anyways back to the preppy-ness factor.  These shorts inspired me to put on a white J.Crew cotton shirt, my grandmother’s pearl necklace and my rainbows.  And now I am sitting the library of the apartment sipping coffee, having a scone, and watching the U.S. Open. Where is my tennis racket and tea-cup poodle? 

Maybe some of you are laughing and saying that it isn’t very preppy… just for kicks I put on my “putting-green” (if you will) color Lacoste long sleeve polo– I looked like Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren Pink Pony label’s love child. 

Not a bad thing. 

Not my thing unless I am going to the races or the Hamptons. 

–okay thats my fashion blurb. 

On an even more awesome note, the weekend was legit. 

Friday kicked off with the Dane Cook ISolated INcident performance at the American Airlines Center.  My best friend Alex came in from Stevenville to go with me. We are both avid fans of crude, inappropriate and WTF humor… we both agreed that the show was “great”– I think I had to convince myself it was REALLY great, but overall worth going to. His old material–slip and slide, I did my best, and BK are unbeatable. Dane’s jeans were too tight though. SU FI. 



American Airlines Center- pretty good seats for last minute tickets- Sec. 120 Row E. 


Me with my $40 Dane Cook T-shirt. Thank you China for making this 50 cent shirt for us to mark up and sell to people who are suckers for keepsakes. Oh and that is my new tank from 7 For all Mankind. Got it on my Speed-Shopping trip on Friday with Andrew, Greg and Alex. The back is freaking gorgeous it is just a touch deeper v-back then you would expect, with a thin band at the top. Its so sexy. 


And my bestie Alex with her SU FI shirt. 


BlackBerry Pic at the Concert. 

Saturday I drove out to Athens to ride a couple horses. It was beautiful out. I took a couple pretty photos. 


Gorgeous sky around 7am. 


I just love this city. 


…and seriously, what beats a baby horse? “Black Opal” about a month old.. snoozing in the summer sun

Saturday evening I went out with a friend for some drinks and dinner… attempted to go to Porch– but the wait was over an hour so we went to Cuba Libre— definite recommendation for some great mexican food… and make sure to get a table on the top deck, overlooks Henderson (granted its the Liquor store) but a very, very cool vibe… I’d reccomend the house Chardonnay and a “Swirl” Margarita to split (quite strong). 

Picture 20

Cheers to your Father’s Day and the beginning of another great week. 

Posts that are in draft stages are Andrew and I’s Wish List and his weekend recap.
