Denim Goodness.....

I saw this dress on Instagram the other day and loved it.  So much so that I immediately googled it, ended up finding the last one at Shopbop, and purchased it.  I have been looking for the perfect denim dress and this one might just fit the bill.  I can't wait to try it on, *fingers crossed*, I hope it works but if not I will always have the inspiration right?

Candy Colors.....

I spotted the cutest candy colored bags when I was browsing the Anniversary sale last week at Nordstrom.  I tried them on, took a twirl in the mirror and was so close to purchasing one but then decided against it.  There are 2 different sizes one large and one small and both under $100.  Any color would be a great addition to your wardrobe.

Shopping At the Plaza....

I took a mini vacation to Kansas City for the long weekend.  It was great to get out of Texas, eat some great bbq, and relax.  I took my own advice from, this post and wore sequins for this daytime outfit for shopping and hanging out around town.  It was the perfect mix of dressy casual.  What did you all do for the holiday weekend?

Style Tip:  Not sure how to execute your daytime sparkle?  Try these tips.  Make sure to only include 1 sequin item in your outfit.  Try to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple, don't overdo it with too many extra accessories.  Most of all have fun with it!

It was one of those mornings when I just didn't know what to wear.  I wasn't running particularly late, like I usually am, so I had the time to pick something I loved.  I have been into the idea of dresses lately and pulled this one out of the back of my closet.  I originally bought it because of the great print, which if you look closely you can see the butterflies that are subtly included.  Happy Hump Day!!

Style Tip:  Bugs can be fashionable too!  Try finding a print that camouflages them or is on an ultra feminine body.  Its all about your personal style and level of bug comfort.

A Little Glitter.....

I love these heels.  They are the perfect mix of casual with a dash of dressy which comes by way of that awesome black glitter down the back.  Check and check!

Neon Stripes.......

I went to brunch yesterday for a friend's birthday and was excited that I finally had the chance to wear this dress.  I LOVE the neon piping on the front and the vertical placement helps the eye go up and down so you appear to be skinnier.  HA!!  Who wouldn't love that?

Style Tip:  Look for fun details that are figure flattering.  These neon stripes are the perfect example of a detail that is slimming to the eye but so cute and trendy all at the same time.

Unexpected Zippers....

I love the unexpected zippers at the side seams of this dress.  For today's look I really liked the way this outfit turned out so I kept the same formula and added a new dress, belt, and shoes.  The perfect Spring to Summer look.

Style Tip:  If you find a look that works for you don't be afraid to use the same "formula" with different pieces.  Mine happens to be this safari vest with a fitted knit dress.

Pop Meadow....

In an effort to add more prints to my wardrobe I bought this top a couple weeks ago.  Its from the master of all things printed, Ms. Diane Von Furstenberg.  I originally had it on with regular blue denim but decided on a quick change to this purple pair which added a great pop to the outfit.

Style Tip:  Don't be afraid to add colored bottoms to an already busy blouse.  Try picking one of the under represented colors in your blouse grab your favorite bottoms to match and you are off.

D.I.Y.: Dip Dye Denim

I love this pair of dip dye denim that Krystal styled so cute as usual.  If you don't have 80 bucks laying around for a pair I found this very simple D.I.Y. that could work for pants or any other denim piece that you have laying around.  I am on the fence about trying this or just waiting until the Zara pair go on sale and hope that my size is still around.  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Let me know if you try this out.

Party Time...

For those of you that follow me on Instagram you know that I took a quick weekend trip to NYC.  I wasn't originally planning on going but I found a ticket at the last minute for a steal of a deal.  The purpose of the trip was to go to a 65th birthday party for one of my mom's cousins.  Its always great when I can support family and show up to their events no matter how big or small.  I wasn't sure what the dress code would be but it was being held at a banquet hall at night so of course I went with sequins.  The party was a blast and I hope you all had just as much fun this past weekend as I did.

Style Tip: Sequins can be worn day or night.  I opted for a night out this time, but this combo would work just as well for daytime errands.  So dress it up or dress it down, and have fun with it!

Pops Of Color.....

I love adding little pops of color to an outfit.  I found this pink belt at Old Navy last weekend for a whooping $9.00 and its a great way to add color to any outfit.  I used my style tip from the Varsity post here, added my pop of color, and I was off for the day.

Style Tip:  Try adding a pop of color to your outfit.  This can come in the form of shoes, a belt, clutch, or even hair accessory.   Beware though, too many pops of color in one outfit can make it look too busy so use caution when popping.

I love this dress.  It reminds me of a high fashion version of a tulip dress.  The creamy off white color is so chic and clean.  Now all I need is the dress and somewhere to wear it to.
