Gina: Fashion Friday!

I’m crashing the party over here today 😉

Here are some of the things I’m loving right now:

Friday faves1

-This cobalt blue skirt from LOFT. I haven’t been much of a skirt person lately (I adore maxi skirts but haven’t donned a shorter one in quite a while), but I’m trying to get back into them, especially because I love them for fall in Tucson. It’s going to be warm here for quite a while, still, so I picked up a fun skirt which surprisingly matches more than I thought it would. I especially love it with a printed black and white tank.

-Yellow necklace. This is a fun pop of color when you don’t expect it, and also surprisingly neutral. 

-Cuff-style watches. This espresso watch is from Armani Exhange, and super cute by itself or layered with delicate bracelets.

-Flats season is heeeeeere again. I rock flip flops or sandals 90% of the year here, but love fall flats. I had a huge debate over which pair to go for, but decided on the ones on the left because the suede ones on the right would be filthy in .4 seconds. It’s very dusty here and suede doesn’t seem to do too well (or I just don’t know how to take good care of it).

-Tarte lip stain (photo source). I love all of their products, but the lip stain has awesome staying power.

-Francesca’s Collection. I’d always walk by the store and was curious about their clothing, but it seemed like too much of a treasure hunt. I was really excited to find a few things I loved, including the black slouchy top and black and white shorts above. For the price, I was really impressed with the quality. I wore the outfit with black heels and silver jewelry in Vegas, and today am wearing a white tank under the black top and sandals.


What are you loving right now? Any fun new finds? feel free to link away!

    I’m loving girly, flowy blouses that can be dressed up or down, my mint green shorts + gold wedges!

    I love that lip stain! Mine doesn’t seem to last as long though. I do think I have a makeup resistant face- none of my makeup seems to last very long.

    I love all the things you found above. I have been eying several peplum tops and bib necklaces as of late, but have yet to try the tops on. I am not sure how they will work on my body but I love them so!

    Love that necklace! Where’d you get it??

    • Irene on August 10, 2012 at 4:37 pm

      Yes – I was wondering the same thing!

    LOVE the cobalt skirt! I adore everything from LOFT!!!!!! I got a similar skirt from LOFT in cheetah print 🙂 I love (classy ;)) animal prints!

    Love all of your fashion finds. And I especially LOVE seeing you here! 🙂
    I enjoy your guests on the Fashion page, but I think your style is more in tune with my own so I really, really look forward to the Gina posts.

    Love that you’re doing your fashion post this week!

  7. Kaitlyn @ Keeping up with Kaitlyn on August 10, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    LOVE those flats!!

  8. Miranda @ Biting Life on August 10, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    That blue skirt is so cute! I’m not a big skirt person, but I wish I was. I like them in theory, but they just don’t look right when they’re on.

  9. Tamara on August 10, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    I love those flats, and that skirt is beautiful.

    I’m so jealous of your weather …or lack thereof. Where I live (Winnipeg), fall lasts for about 3 weeks, and then we’re at -20 to -40 until March or April. Sigh.

  10. Sarah on August 10, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    I love the look of ballet flats, but have the hardest time finding a pair that are comfortable. They either hit my toes or pop out at the back. I’m eternally on a hunt for nude leather ones. If you find some – let me know 🙂

    I am very excited for fall because I can’t wait to rock a pair of skinny jeans tucked into my tall boots. I have always been a little too thick to pull it off (literally, the boots had a hard time coming off), but I’m not anymore and I can’t wait!

    Francesca’s is seriously my fave store. The girls who work there are usually way helpful, too. I *literally* ran in there on Friday looking for a dress to wear to a charity event that night. They not only pulled some perfect stuff, but grabbed jewelry and entertained my reckless two year old with sunglasses. Yeah, love them 🙂

    Also, I am loving your TB flats! I really need to bite the bullet and buy some, I have coveted them for yeeeears.

    • Fitnessista on August 10, 2012 at 5:35 pm

      you’re totally right- the girls there are awesome. they were smiling and talking to livi, and helped me pick out tops and jewelry to match, too

  12. Marie-Santé on August 10, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    You have such a pretty style. Classy and simple, I like 🙂

  13. Presley @ Run Pretty on August 10, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Love that skirt!

  14. Stephanie on August 10, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Francesca’s is the best!! 🙂

  15. Sarabell on August 10, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I am loving Target’s dress collection this summer. It’s hotter this summer than the summers I’m used to, so I’m also loving tank tops with capris and my neon running shoes.

  16. Ashley @ Hop Skip Jump on August 11, 2012 at 6:39 am

    Random question but what is the font you used on the images? Thanks!

  17. Amy on August 13, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Since it’s 106 in northern CA right now fall clothing is FAR from my thoughts;) Iam loving my Tory Burch cognac colored sandals and coordinating cognac bag that my hubby got for me on my b’day this summer. That color matches just about everything and the bag will transition into fall as well!
