Hey! Didn't mean to disappear on you like that. On top of being busy working on personal projects last week, a nasty sinus infection was bringing me down (summer colds are the worst!). I did take some time though to see the film Begin Again, and also promptly learned all of the songs on the soundtrack!  I knew Mark Ruffalo and Kiera Knightly would make for a killer movie, but the musical indie vibes that filled the story line just nailed it and won Begin Again a spot on my top ten favorite films list. Have you guys seen it yet? I think it's still playing in limited theaters, but should be out all over very soon. Anyways, we've also big having crazy monsoons around here (hence the sinus infection), so it's been extra hot and muggy during the day. This sweet shift dress that I scooped up on sale from Madewell has been helping to keep me cool when my iced coffee just isn't cutting it!

Outfit details:
Madewell dress
Bracelets: Kate Spade & Jcrew

On another note, I've been been brainstorming as to what other kind of content I want to add to the Tea Talk lineup (everyone needs a little refresher now and again), so I wanted to ask YOU what you would like to see more of on this little ol' blog of mine! Please share any and all thoughts in the comments below and THANK YOU in advance!

  2. I've been following your blog for awhile now, and I love it!

    I want to know more about how you build your wardrobe. You always look so effortlessly put together. When and where and how and how often do you shop? I recently moved away from my stylist best friend and the idea of building a wardrobe all by myself that fits this locale and time in my life is daunting. It's nice to know where your cute stuff came from, but how do you know it will work for you- especially if you ship online?

    Also, more about your projects and aspirations outside of the blog, coffee, and your fantastic fashion sense! I completely understand the need for privacy, but if you feel comfortable sharing more about your life with us here, I'm sure we'd all love it. :)

  3. I second Bethany's comment: I would love to know more about how you go about adding items to your wardrobe, what makes the cut for spending on clothes and what doesn't. As a grad student living on a tight budget, one of my biggest challenges is looking chic and professional without breaking the bank.

    I would also be interested in hearing more about some favorites brands of coffee, types of drinks, or favorite flavors. As one who also appreciates coffee, I love learning more about it and hearing suggestions of different things to do with it.

    Overall, I love your blog as is! It was the first blog I ever started following and is still my favorite. Thanks for putting yourself out there to share your life (:

  4. you look so cute!! :) Love the location


  5. As a madly obsessed shift dress lover, I can't get over how perfect your dress is. Kicking myself for not shopping at Madewell! I think showing local spots in PHX would be great because 1) I miss it there and 2) many don't really know the charm the city has besides being crazy hot.
