In between a family wedding, couch shopping, and catching up on the Housewives (shh, don't tell anyone), here are some things I read that I wanted to pass on... 

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Liz from Mile High Style (and absorbing her wisdom) while I was in Boulder this summer. Check out this great article about her, her philosophy (less stuff, better quality basics, sound familiar?) and about the impact clothes can have on your mental state.

Everyone's eagerly awaiting the release of Phillip Lim's collaboration with Target and I have loved his designs since he won a CFDA award in 2007. However, I'm usually extremely disappointed in the actual clothes and accessories that result from these collaborations, so I'll reserve my judgement until I see them in person. The collection is in Target stores on September 15. Based on the photos in the slideshow, what do you think?

 

I loved Molly from Heart of a Blonde's narrative  of a style meltdown and how she worked her way out of it.

 Even if you've been working all summer, fall still brings the back-to-school-need-new-clothes feeling (at least it does for me!). Check out this slideshow from Lucky for chic work dresses.  

If you haven't checked out Mrs. Lillian's blog for some eye candy, head right over. Not only does she put together some amazing collages of enviable items, but she describes everything in rhyme. No joke.
