O.W.O. & Summer Hours…

School’s out for summer!

reversecommuter is about to clock some MAJOR Mama hours, so blog posts will be Monday Wednesday and Friday until the banditos are back in school…this shot may very well be the last time I am sitting until September.  But at least my summer uniform is SHAN!  (Click here to revisit the absolute adoration reversecommuter has for this swimwear designer.)


…unless of course I find myself BURSTING to post about some little bit of fashion that has me completely obsessed!  As in the super amazing trend at Pitti Uomo of terry cloth blazers – can that please translate over for women please?


Now imagine how perfect the world would be with a combination of a SHAN bikini and a terry cloth blazer – who needs a towel?  Straight from the beach to dinner!  (admit it, you were thinking it too…)

Last Minute Giftees!

Toots Adorbs Alert!!!!


Alice + Olivia founder, Stacey Bendet, has redefined Starbucks cuteness with her bearista and to-go cup in her line’s trademark black & white.  reversecommuter cannot tell which one I like more…maybe it’ll have to be one of my trademark Christmas purchases aka one for them, one for me!  Click here to embark on your own dilemma!


Diptyque, THE best candle line ever now has an air diffuser that is as pretty as the candles!    Once again, reversecommuter cannot decide between the candles or the diffuser in my favorite scents – Figuere & Baie.  (can you see the pattern forming?……)  Click here for a fabulous trip to la ville Diptyque!


FUNNY little side story – once I was in a Diptyque boutique and overheard a woman with the BEST southern drawl announce that she had always wanted to buy a “DIPPITY-QUE” candle!  LOVE LOVE LOVE GIGGLE SNORT LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!

Happy Last Minute Shopping!

FYI have you tried the instant iced coffee from Starbucks?  MILDLY ADDICTED (caps prove the caffeine must be coursing through my veins!!).  Click here to go get yourself some!


J Crew shorts, DVF tank, Celine espadrilles & Tom Ford sunglasses.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Burb…

As you may have already deduced, the burbs challenge me.  Daily.

Exhibit A – cannot walk to Starbucks.

That is why a gorgeous summer night with many twinkling stars does not escape my appreciation.  (vast amounts of twinkling stars are rarely recognizable in the city sky)

And what better way to take it all in, than to slip on a pair of Cinderella-esque Louboutins, (click here to be whisked away to Fifi-strass), pour a glass of champs and lie on the grass counting the stars?

Simple, happy, burb moment!

(do you see the grass hanging off the heel – ugh, nature)
