Happy Friday everyone! Two updates for y’all:
1) I’ve got another post up at Bourbon and Boots about how to wear pink without looking like a girly girl. So check that out if you’re interested.
2) And more importantly, we’re excited to announce the winner of the Stella & Dot giveaway from (the amazing) Casie Selig! Congrats to Jamie Bradshaw for winning the Renegade Cluster Bracelet! Jamie, watch your email for instructions on claiming your priiiize! Thanks to everyone who entered, and if you didn’t win this one – better luck next time! Feel free to browse Casie’s Stella & Dot site anytime or contact her if you want to purchase something or host a trunk show.
I absolutely love the super cute, affordable jewelry and accessories from Stella & Dot. This company is great at creating both stand alone statement pieces, and pieces that can be stacked and layered and collected over time.
I’ve considered hosting trunk shows over the years and inviting my friends to come play in all the jewelry, but it never happened. Then recently, my good friend Casie became a Stella & Dot stylist, which means I have a pretty good reason to get around to that trunk show, don’t you think?
One of my current favorite pieces from Stella & Dot is the Renegade Cluster Bracelet, which has black diamond pave beads and gold plated crystals and can be layered with all your favorite bracelets. And lucky for you guys, sweet Casie has offered to give one of these bracelets away to a lucky Rosemary on the TV reader!
To enter, simply visit Casie’s stylist site at StellaDot.com, take a look around and come back here to leave a comment telling me which item on the site is your VERY favorite. For an EXTRA entry, “Like” Rosemary on the TV on Facebook and share this giveaway with your friends!
We will choose a winner at random next Friday! Good luck!
UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!
I’m guest blogging over at Bourbon & Boots again today! We’re talking about accessorizing spring’s hottest trends – the midi skirt, pastels, floral prints and more! Read the post here.
My birthday was Saturday (24 again!) and I decided to buy myself a birthday present – a Loren Hope Designs necklace from Proposals here in Little Rock. I’d seen the girls posting her jewels on Instagram and Facebook and fell a little in love.
I got myself the above necklace, but that led to a little online research about Loren Hope and what I found was her Palm Springs-inspired Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook, and now I’m officially obsessed with this line. I’m particularly fond of her use of green and coral together – two of my favorite colors.
So, of course, I need all of these pieces. Or at least one. If you’re in Little Rock, be sure and check out Loren Hope jewelry at Proposals Boutique!

No, seriously, guess.
Not only do I want to bundle up in all of these amazing jackets and sweaters, I probably actually could considering they are all from LOFT. Yes, LOFT. As in Ann Taylor Loft. So chic! So affordable! All of these pieces are from LOFT’s Lounge section, and I think they are perfect for unwrapping presents on Christmas morning, or lounging in front of a fire by the Christmas tree.
Target recently released its 2013 Fall lookbook, styled in part by Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific. If you’ve never read Atlantic-Pacific, I encourage you to take a peek. Blair has flawless taste and it was a smart move on Target’s part to team up with her. These looks scream sophistication in a way Target rarely does.
I was really pleased with a lot of Target’s new items the last time I was there. Having recently made the leap to freelancing full time, every dollar I spend is precious and to be able to find clothes that appear expensive and can be mixed-and-matched to create multiple outfits is exciting! I bought the navy pants with black stripe (seen above) as well as the pumps below in black. But there are a few more pieces here that I might need to add to my list. Props, Target!

Summer in Arkansas is six to seven months of humid, oppressive heat that makes your hair flat and your skin melt. In recent years, I’ve started wearing less makeup in the summer, just because it feels gross on my skin and usually smears all over my face by lunch anyway. But when the heat lifts and fall arrives, I welcome back my fun makeup.
This fall, I’ve decided to try some new eye shadow moves. I’ve been doing the same thing for a long time, but I recently saw this post on The Beauty Department and thought I’d give it a shot.
I used my Chella highlighter pencil under my brow and at the inner corners of my eyes. Next, I lined the crease with Bobbi Brown‘s eye pencil in Taupe and smudged it according to the directions. I lined the upper and lower lash line with Bobbi Brown‘s creamy eye pencil in Dusk (which is purple-ish – for green eyes) and smudged it as well, then went back with the Chella pencil right in the middle of the lid (above my pupil) and blended it all together with a few taps of my fingers. Finish with mascara and voila! It’s eyeshadow for those of us that want to look effortless and natural. I’ve found my new fall routine!
What makeup item do you swear by? Let me know! I’m always up to try new products!
Read about the rest of my makeup routine here.

Why? Because J. Crew Little Rock opens September 20th. Heard from a very reliable source. Deal with it.

I have a closet full of neutrals, and I like it that way. More opportunities for mixing ‘n’ matching /SLASH/ tricking people into thinking I have more clothes than I do. But a neon clutch is added value with minimal commitment. That’s something I can get behind.

I recently made an exciting and possibly expensive revelation.
The Target that is mere blocks from my house sells Essie nail polish.
This may not be news to any of you, but I’ve been scratching my head for MONTHS wondering where I could get Essie nail polish (somewhere besides the too-far-away, expensive West Little Rock spa that sells it). Did I ever think to check the nail polish aisle at Target? No. Never. Too easy. Too obvious.
Well, Target, that’s the last time I ever doubt you.
For my first Essie purchase, I chose “Merino Cool.” It looks great. More grey than the picture below. If this color were a room, it would be modern and sophisticated with a hint of playful freshness.
More to come, I’m sure.
