Simplicitly Yours

I generally use big purses, not only because I like them but because I always have so much stuff. It can be so heavy though! I usually do not change to a small purse unless it is for an event, but I am trying to use them more because really, why do I need so much stuff all the time?! I don’t. So please feast your eyes on this beauty!

I got it from Simplicitily Yours. They are fairly new, my friend Heather actually introduced them to me. Picking this cute little purse was pretty hard because they have so many cute ones. I chose this pink one with the flower details because I love letting a purse be the pop of color on a simple outfit. If I add this accessory like I did here on a simple black and gray outfit, it will not only stand out, but will dress the outfit up as well.  If you want to try new things but are unsure, I think it is easiest to have a fun purse because it is part of your outfit but not so in your face.

The purse is linked here, it also comes in black and white. Check out Simplicitly Yours for all of their cute accessories and use my code BRITTANY20 for 20% off your order!

 

Proud and Pretty in Pink – Empower Me!

So this post is a little late, but I wanted to write about the Proud and Pretty in Pink’s Empower Me! event I attended a couple weeks ago. If you do not remember, read this post Proud and Pretty in Pink, PPP is the organization I blog for. The women who started this organization are truly amazing. This event hosted a panel of five women who shared about their experiences growing up and what contributed to their self esteem, and where they are now. It was awesome because no matter who you were, you could have related to at least one of their stories. The variety was just so great. One of the girl’s stories even made me realize that I need to look at my similar circumstances in a different light. It was a very eye opening experience that maybe I will get to write about one day, but not yet. I am hoping through blogging for PPP I can open up more about my stories and help another just by even relating to them.

What PPP does is really great and I encourage you to take a look at their site  proudandprettyinpink.com. They try to have events quarterly so I am really looking forward to the next. 



These lovely ladies are the founders of PPP!

Dainty Accessories from Civion

As much as I love accessories, I always end up just wearing necklaces if I even remember to. Bracelets are hard for me to wear because they never fit and it bothers me when they dangle down around my hand, especially when I am typing at work. Recently I have been trying out more dainty pieces, like these two that I got from Civion, and this super cute infinity ring. I love these kinds of cuffs because you can adjust them and make them tighter if need be. These thin styles are great because you can wear them with almost anything whether it be casual or dressy. Throwing them on just adds a little extra to your look. Check them out and use my code BRIT25 for 25% off your order!

Wedding Season!

Dressing up for a wedding is so fun! You get to wear a dress, heels, do good make up, and actually style your hair in more than just curls, if you want. I love it! I think I also like the fact that I get to buy a new dress. I already have pictures in all of my dresses so obviously I can’t wear any of the ones in my closet to a wedding! Duh! The things I tell myself to buy new clothes…

I had been thinking for awhile what I should wear to my brother’s and new sister’s wedding. I had no ideas but knew when I saw the right dress I would know. I had come across a red dress at Target that I really liked, but thought I shouldn’t try it since it was red and I have red hair. Then my bffff tried it on and sent me a picture. Every time I went to Target I would see this dress. I started calling it the “lamp shade dress”, you’ll see why. Finally I went into Target again and decided to try it on. The Target Cartwheel app. had a coupon for 40% off dresses. Trying it on I LOVED it! I had the idea of wearing it with camel tan heels and gold accessories. After confirming it looked okay with my hair with about three friends, I bought it.

I knew exactly which shoes I wanted to pair with it. I had actually bought them before and returned them for the black pair. They are a camel tan peep-toe platform with a thick heel and an ankled strap. So cute and SO comfy! I wore them for 7 hours on the day of the wedding and was perfectly fine.

I went to find a necklace about two days before the wedding, I knew I just needed something gold so it wouldn’t be too hard to find. As usual I went to Charming Charlie because that store never fails. I found a gold necklace that had the same detail idea as the dress, fringe-ish. I also found a camel tan clutch on sale for $8.99! I ended up using it the entire weekend (but forgot to hold it in my picture, oops.).

I felt very happy with my choice for this wedding. Now I just need a new dress for one of my best friend’s bridal shower, bachelorette party, and wedding… I told you, it is wedding season!

The Best Color Combo

I know I have been obsessed with Old Navy recently but I can’t help it! I just find the best deals and and some of the cutest clothes, especially basics. On my last shopping trip there in March (after my month of no shopping), I found this navy striped loose peplum tank and it was on sale for $8! (I also bought it in black) I had been waiting for the perfect way to wear this, so I decided white pants were the best pairing. Of course I didn’t have any, so back to Old Navy I went! I wanted to add some color to the outfit and I LOVE wearing coral with navy so what would be better than a coral necklace to add some pop? I had just bought a coral necklace from Charming Charlie because it was a color I didn’t have yet, and it is a good one to have for summer. I was excited when I finally put this outfit on and paired it all together. I added my chunky tan heels because they basically go with everything and I love them. You cannot go wrong with navy, white, and coral.

I hope you all had a good Tuesday!

Pattern Mixing

I saw a picture on Instagram the other day of a striped tee with a floral skirt. I became obsessed and wanted to create my own version. I already have a striped tee so all I needed was the skirt, so I went to my go to, Old Navy! After wandering around for quite some time I found this navy print skirt on the clearance rack for $8.48! What a steal! As I said I already have a striped tee, but I don’t have a striped tank. I am seriously so obsessed with stripes right now… So I bought a tank. I found this one on sale for $6! It’s a double scoop so the neck and the back both scoop down. It’s really light and super comfy. As I was walking to the front I passed this open cardigan. It’s a good color and the shorter sleeves are great for the warmer weather. I had my two patterns so I figured a solid sweater layered on top would really tie the whole outfit together. For the finishing touches I added my pendant tassel necklace from Charming Charlie and my tan chunky heels from G Stage. They have to be the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn.

Wild!

I know I always say that Fall is my favorite season but Spring is my second favorite and there are SO MANY cute new clothes coming out! In my last post Spring Dress! I talked about a few things that I had found at the Old Navy Spring Sale (seriously go check it out). Well today I found a top to go with the shorts that I got last week. These cuffed linen shorts in “BLUSHIN UP” are totally cute and were on sale for $15! Not only are they super casual, but you can dress them up with wedges and still feel like you are in PJ shorts! I mean what is better than wearing lounge wear all day?! The tank I just happened to pass by and thought it was cute. It was also $15 normal price. I love dressing up graphic tees/tanks with statement necklaces to get a dressy casual look in that way that says “I always dress cute even when I am not trying” kind of way (life goal). Check it out:
