Stripes and Checks....

I love the idea of pattern mixing but I don't do it as often as I would like because of the lack of patterns to mix in my wardrobe.  I finally got the chance to wear this cardigan that I bought several years ago from J Crew, this shopping my closet thing has really been working out.  This was my best attempt to mix up some patterns today, cute right?

I finally got the chance to wear another one of the pieces that I got from the Charlotte Taylor collection that I picked up from Antho over the holidays.  I love how whimsical this print is and the mix of orange and pink is amazing!  I tried on so many jacket/sweater/cardi options before I decided on this one.  Its meant to be worn as a cropped cardigan but at the last minute I decided to wrap it over itself and secure it with one of my old brooches.  Ah, a little taste of Spring.

I found this bracelet over the weekend and I thought it was so cute I bought it at REGULAR PRICE.  I know, I know its so unlike me but it was the last one left in this color so I tried it on, feel in love, and now its mine!  There was something about the pink color with the simple word, "SWEET".

Get yours HERE, its available in different colors and with other words like SINGLE and TAKEN, also very cute!

Its Back....

But in slightly different version.  I don't know if you all remember this super "sweet" dress from Asos? I loved the cute stripes and style however by the time I decided to get it, it was sold out.  Now its back but in sold colors and its on SALE!  My favorite word.  I am on the fence about it since the stripe version was so much cuter.  Thoughts?

The Remix....

The last time I wore this jacket I wore it with the exact same bottoms.  This time I opted for a different blouse, which I dug out of the back of my closet this am, and these fun Pedro Garcia shoes! Just a simple change of shirt, shoes, and accessories and you have a complete new look.  Now that's what I call shopping your closet.

Dress My Nest: A Little Preview....

For those of you that have been following my blog for awhile you know that I have been SLOWLY decorating my house. Snails pace....  I talked about order my custom bed, here, and showed you a little preview of it here, and now I have finally settled on bedding and pillows so I wanted to give you, yes another little preview of what I finally decided on.  I know you all are wanting to see the entire bed but I figure all these teases will make the final room that much more exciting, OR it will be a huge disappointment.  HA!  I hope its the not the latter.

I Shopped at Ross and I Liked It....

I don't consider myself to be a store snob because I can thrift with the best of them, however Ross is the one store that I almost never have any luck in.  The lines are always long, the store always seems to be disorganized and overall my experiences there haven't been that great.  A couple of weeks ago I decided to give it another try and success!!  I found and purchased my very first pair of chucks.  In true girly girl style they are covered in sequins and when I googled them in the store, are selling at Bloomingdales for $100.00 and I got them for 75% off.  Yes!  I can't wait to wear these.

Shaman Glam....

I saw bits of the Mara Hoffman show on Instagram and instantly searched to find the complete show.  I have been into anything native american influenced and this show is a great mix of this style with unexpected print color combos.  Below are a few of my favorite looks from her show.  What were some of your favorite shows from Fashion Week?

Happy Valentine's Day...

My post is a little late because I spent all of last night making these yummy rice krispy treats for my coworkers.  I made 2 batches, one using strawberry marshmallows and one the regular way only adding a tiny bit of course sea salt.  They are both super yummy and was proud that I didn't eat more than I was taking to work.  I hope you all have a day filled with lots of love from family, friends, and life partners.

What I Love About Your Look....

Its Friday again and another Fashion Week is in full swing.  Maybe I will be invited to go to a few of the shows next time... I stay hopeful that I will get to cross attending Fashion Week off my bucket list.  *le sigh* On a much brighter note I found this outfit today and WOW!!  What I love most about this look is that fantastic neck party. How could I not right?  I hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend.

A Cute Dress and A Feature....

I just knew that after Sunday there would be tons of posts about what you all picked up from the Jason Wu for Target collection.   However, this was not the case unless I just completely missed all your posts.  I  had one goal in mind for that collection and it was the striped dress that I saw in every ad.  2 Targets later I was the happy owner of this little number.  It's the cutest little dress and I can't wait for some warmer weather so I can wear it.  Were any of you lucky enough to pick up some items?

On another note Jamila from the For the Fabulous and Frugal blog did a feature about me today.  For those of you that have had questions about my hair please head on over, here, to see my routine.  Thanks Jamila!!

Casual Party...

I took my new booties out for a spin today. I LOVE them, and they are some of the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn.  I wanted to keep it super casual on top since the shoes are so glittery and fun, it was like having a party on my feet.

Saying I Love You....

Doesn't always have to come with an extravagant gift.  It can come in a very small package and in the form of these very cute, very simple heart earrings.  Can you believe that we are only 1 week away from Valentine's Day?

If you love them for yourself or want to get them for someone you love, pick up a pair here

It Was The Glitter...

This past weekend, I was taking my usual weekend browse in the mall when I walked into Barneys.  I had every intention on not spending a dime.  I was going to take my usual walk through the Celine bags, hold one, look at myself in the mirror, dream a little, put it back, and then do a little more window shopping.  Well on the way to the clothing section I had to walk through the shoe salon and saw these boots.  They stopped me right in my tracks.  I think it was the glitter.  Needless to say I left with a Gaga's workshop bag in tow.  Ah well maybe next time....

A Sequin Skirt Story....

So a few months ago while catching up on some of my favorite blogs I came across the below picture with the Beckerman Sisters and my favorite, the Jenna Lyons.  I was so envious that they got to meet her at the opening of the J Crew in Toronto but was quickly distracted by that AMAZING skirt!!!!  It was the perfect lime green color, so fun, and perfectly styled with that simple striped shirt.  I searched for it on the J Crew site and couldn't find it, oh the disappointment.  So fast forward to today.  I was taking a browse on the Glitter Guide and saw a picture of the skirt only this time it was for sale, YESS it would be mine. *Heels clicking* Then reality sets in, the price $695, six hundred and ninety five dollarssss?????  Who has that kind of money to spend on a skirt, apparently a lot of people since some of the sizes are already sold out.  Ah well, I guess I will have to look for the similar yet more affordable version.
