There's something extremely French chic and ladylike about a d'Orsay flat - I can see Bridget Bardot or Carla Bruni wearing a pair! It's definitely been popping up all over style insiders this year and I think those swapping out sandals for fall shoes will immediately appreciate this style. Here are 15 pairs at various price points to help you shop:

I still feel odd calling this a full-on relationship, just because we only had three days together before I went off to the other side of the country. Right now it's easy for everything to be sunshine and flowers because we're communicating solely through digital means. Neither of us has much "out in the world so this is how this person acts in reality" experience. Not that I expect him to break off in the middle of a conversation to kick a puppy. But it's important to spend in-person time together to know how a person really responds to various situations and whatnot, and right now we don't have that. So I sense myself actually being very cautious for once. I don't like it!
However, things digitally have been going super awesome. If you ever happen to find yourself in a similar situation, I highly recommend having a webcam - Skyping has made a huge difference! Also, we downloaded an app for couples called Between, where we can text, send pictures, save dates and write each other memos. Yeah, when I log in there's a countdown for when he comes out to visit me - 16 days! Hahaha, we're kinda epically cheesy.
We're going to start accumulating a lot of miles. Because while technology has made it much more bearable to be away from someone, in the end you need that in-person connection to keep things going.

And Comic Con Guy is definitely the angel on my other shoulder. Sweet and thoughtful and an all around nice guy, he is who my thoughts drift to. And things would be just perfect... if we didn't live on the other sides of the country.
So here I am with Spike the bad boy, close at hand and plotting to win me over somehow, with the angel far away. Now, yes, I am an adult and some damsel in distress who can't fend off the affections of a nefarious man. But I must say the whole situation has thrown me a little. What exactly is his strategy? Is there some plan I would be susceptible to? Will the long distance get to me? I don't like having these questions!

Clear clutches are fun if you only need to carry a few key essentials! Here are two options, both somewhat in the realm of reality but one much more reasonable.
Forever 21 - this clutch is just $23!

As 90s grunge comes back into fashion, one may be having nightmares of unwashed hair and babydoll dresses. But a basic flannel shirt is actually cute chic and easy to rock now and right into fall!
For fall contrast grunge with some ladylike details, like a thick gold chain necklace and posh clutch for a well balanced look! After all, you want to be inspired by grunge, not look like a scary homeless person!

And yet... we text each other every day. Probably the longest we now go without some form of communication is from when I go to bed to when he wakes up. I have suddenly lost interest in my online dating profiles. We're planning on trips out to see each other. He already knows more about me than First Kiss, who I dated for more than eight months!!
Maybe we're both being weenies and by entering into a faux relationship instead of a scary real one. But it does feel very real to me and there is some opportunity for it to get even more so... but we shall see!
