Polka Dot Top – 3 Ways

Before I buy any clothes, I always try to think of several different ways I could wear the piece I’m thinking about spending my money on. Then, I consider what I already have in my closet and decide if there is enough of what I already have to make up these different outfits. If I can really only think of one way to wear a certain piece, or if I would have to keep buying in order to make the outfit in my imagination work, then I usually put the piece back on the clothing rack. (Unless of course it’s flipping fabulous and I literally couldn’t live without it.) If the piece passes the test, I know it will be money well spent!

This polka-dot Rebecca Taylor top is flipping fabulous, I can’t live without it, AND I could think of lots of ways to wear it with the clothes that were already in my closet. I mean…could it get any better??

You could dress it down for a trip to the coffee shop, running errands, or even more shopping by knotting it, throwing your hair up, and wearing it with jean shorts and flip flops!





You could make it a little flirtier by pairing it with a skirt and flats for a Sunday brunch or a lunch date!




Or you could dress it up with skinny jeans and wedges for a dinner out or a night out on the town!




I’m kind of obsessed with this top…if you couldn’t already tell (:

Milly & Grace Launches an Online Store!

We are delighted & excited to announce the opening of our online store!!! We would be so tickled if you would take a look: WWW.MILLYANDGRACE.COM


A very special thank you is in order to Milly & Grace’s amazingly talented Director of E-Commerce & Brand Development; Tim Ehrenberg.  He didn’t rest until it was perfect.  He had a gung ho attitude and made me laugh during the whole process – even when I was being particular (more like obsessive) about the details.  Getting the online store up and running was certainly exciting but the best part about the whole process was getting to know this kind heart.

To my little sister Caroline… Your beauty is annoying.  JK!!!  I am thankful for it because hello??!! What would I have done without you??  Steve would have had to have been the model!  Seriously though, thank you for all your hard work and patience during the photo shoots.  I love you!!

And of course to Miss Patty.  Mom, your name has been all over the Milly & Grace brand since day one.  Thank you for all the times you fixed Caroline’s bangs during the photo shoots.  And thank you for being our #1 Cheerleader all the time.

We would love to know your feedback!  Please email us at millyandgracegirls@gmail.com

 * Bonus: I’m also checking off #1 on my list of 30 things to do before I turn 30!!  You can read the rest of my list here! *

The Real LA Experience

My cousin arrives in 4 hours.

I have been thinking a lot about making sure she gets the “The Real LA Experience” while she is here.  I really want to make it special.

So first, I think we will start off with sitting in traffic on the 405.


Next, I think I will take her to Sprinkles Cupcakes/ATM/Sprinkles Ice Cream.  A LA must.


This will be the last solid food we will eat because I will be putting her and myself on 3 day juice cleanse in the morning.

Juice Cleanse

Juice cleanses are a way of life here.  (I actually have never done one but have definitely toyed with the idea.)

I wonder if stand still, horrible traffic is the cause of LA road rage or if the juice cleanses are to blame.

Next we will hike Runyon Canyon.  This is where LA people go to workout/see and be seen/take their rescue dogs for exercise…

Runyon 2

And for sure we won’t miss the Farmer’s Market on Sunday.  This is where everyone goes to stock up on fresh, organic veggies for their raw diets for the coming week.

Farmers Market

Ok, that is all I have planned as of right now but I will keep you all posted!
