Dainty Gold

I have gotten into this bad habit of only getting necklaces when I go to buy accessories. I had $15 worth of coupons for Charming Charlie so when I went I decided to make a change, I was only going to buy bracelets. What usually draws me away from them is that they never fit my wrist, but I have been seeing a lot of those dainty gold cuffs and they are generally pretty small so I decided to look for those. I ended up finding four and they were only $8-10 each! They are pretty popular right now so Charming Charlie had a good variety. These are the ones I found…

The blooper of this story… I was trying to take one of those cute staged pictures of these bracelets on top of my magazine, but I wanted better lighting. So I carried my magazine onto the patio for some natural light and as I was walking out one of my bracelets, the last picture, slid off my magazine and rolled off the patio into the yard of the apartment below me! My bfffff and I just stared at it. I was so bitter! How could I have done that?! I don’t even know my neighbors! So I went and knocked on their door and although I could hear people inside, no one answered -_-. So my bfffff and I went on a 4.5 mile walk to the beach and when we got back we tried the door again. Finally after knocking twice someone answered and I got my bracelet back! I was so happy! Haha that is my tragic story trying to be a photographer.

Red, White, and Plaid!

I went shopping a few weeks ago with my bffffff and we put together the cutest outfit for her for work at Target! I loved it so much I wanted it too so she got me a Target gift card for my birthday. Our favorite work pants (yes I say “our” because we basically have everything the same) are the ankle slacks from Target and they keep coming out with new colors. I have five pairs now and there are still a couple colors I want. Anyways they got these new bright red ones in! They aren’t quite red red, more of a neon red, they are actually called “orange spark”. We grabbed those and then saw a flannel that was red, white, and blue, but the red was the smallest part and was bright enough to match the pants. We held the top up to the pants and fell in love instantly! We both thought of pairing it with our brown oxfords and a brown belt. Boom! You have a work attire outfit that is still casual. Look how cute it is!

New Bag!

I went to Las Vegas on Tuesday to go to a trade show for work and since I was out there, I got to see my Roomie!! I had a dinner first for work but she got to come meet us after at the Ghost Bar. It was a short meeting but it was so fun! Annnnd she gave me my birthday present. Please witness how cute and convertible it is:

It’s called the “Wallaby Mama Bag-In-Bag”. There are 5 different ways to wear this baby! She got it from Charming Charlie (my favorite place, I got some cute bracelets there today that I will show you later)!

 

Right after this blog I will be changing over to it because I can’t wait to use it. It’s the perfect start to Spring, especially in this warm weather we are having!!

You can find the bag here!

26 Years Young

So today is my birthday, I am now 26. I don’t fully know how I feel about this. I have been told twice that this is now considered late 20’s but I refuse to believe that. In my opinion 24-26 are considered mid 20’s because hello, they are in the middle! Someone else told me that it is just a downhill slope from here. Again, refusing to believe this! But as my birthday approached I was worried that they were right! I had no urge or want to do anything for my birthday, or at least nothing big. I feel like it would be silly of me to plan something for my birthday because I am 26, it doesnt seem important. But my bfffff came down last night and we went to get milkshakes at Ruby’s on the pier. They were amazing and it was nice and laid back. I love the beach in the winter because there is no one there. Anyways, I was reflecting on the past 25 years of my life since I am starting a new quarter. I was feeling kind of down about it like I don’t have that much to show for it except for a B.A. in English, which basically means I am a bad ass at English, and a job that doesn’t have anything to do with my degree. But there it is, hanging up on the wall in my office.

But as I was starting down the path of self-deprecation I paused. Even though I have a degree that I am not currently using, I still got that degree. In my first quarter of life I had completed all of my schooling from start to finish. Not only do I have an education, I also have a job, a great boyfriend, and great friends. So maybe I am not exactly where I thought I would be at this age, but I am not in a bad place. I now have a whole new quarter to start getting to where I want to be now that I have all of the fundamentals down.

So here is to 26, let’s see what I can do!

Joggers

So I do not know why I have never worn joggers before today. They are the most comfortable things ever! I felt like I was wearing pajamas in disguise to work today. It was like I fooled everyone at the office into thinking I was wearing real pants. I have had these babies for TWO MONTHS and have not worn them until today. They had been hanging in my closet collecting dust. I finally decided I had to wear them and looked on Pinterst to find an outfit idea. I saw one I liked and BOOM, recreated it with what I had (I love being able to do that). Black joggers that I got on Black Friday from Target, a loose black and white stripped v-neck tee, an olive jacket, and my taupe, tassel Steve Madden booties. The perfect outfit for a Monday and oh so comfy!

Happy Monday! ❤
