Seasonal Bag Change

Each season brings new colors. Fall and winter bring more darks and solids, while spring and summer bring bright colors and popping patterns, and all four seasons share the neutrals. Well spring is fast approaching and it’s time to change it up. Out with my gray and mauve bag and in with this beautiful blue one (insert heart eyes). I have never had a bag this color and I am in love! My boyfriend’s mom got this one for me for Christmas from Charming Charlie (she obviously knows me) and I have been waiting for the opportune time to start using it, as in now! I love the fact that it is square and structured and can stand up by itself. It can be so annoying to have a floppy purse, they slouch down and it is impossible to find things in it. This one I can dig in it while it is sitting in its seat and find everything just fine. Not to mention I also love the different compartments. The purse I was previously using, although very cute, was just one giant compartment and I gave myself rage everyday digging through it for my keys or lip gloss. This square one is also great for work because it is huge! Check it out, it is linked here! (buuuuut Charming Charlie doesnt have this color online but they have a BEAUTIFUL mint or “Seafoam” and super pretty light coral)

PS- in the course of finding this bag on the Charming Charlie website, I found about three other bags I want now… so maybe stay tuned?

The Perfect Look Bag

Purses are an essential that we use everyday, how else would we lug around all of the stuff we “need” on a daily basis? I’m bad about this, my purse will end up so heavy and when I empty it I think why on earth do I need this in my purse?! Every day does not require a large purse, which is what I mainly use besides a few clutches I bought to wear to weddings. I want to try a small purse here and there so I bought a white quilted one from Charming Charlie that I think can go with tons of combinations and bring some fun to my outfit. I just LOVE the lips and glasses on this bag. It is cute and funky but still not too much and holds all of the essentials: wallet (which I also need to downsize), keys, lip gloss/stick, and sunglasses. What else would I need when I go out?

Sweater & A-Line Combo

There was a skirt from Maison Jules at Macy’s that I had kind of been stalking. I looked at it a few times, tried it on once, and decided I would buy it if it was on sale, which it wasn’t, so I put it back. A few weeks later Macy’s was having one of their one day sales and the skirt fell under that sale. I put it in my online cart just to see. I had a coupon in my “Macy’s Wallet” for $15 off $40 or more (the skirt was $39.99 and the coup actually applied!) AND THEN I had $15 in Macy’s cash (some deal I got from a previous purchase) that expired the next day. In the end the skirt, which was originally $69.50, came out to like $12 with tax! Talk about a steal, obviously I bought it. It is a little longer than normal but perfect for work and I love the colors, navy and plum. During the black Friday sale (on the Wednesday before) all of Old Navy was 50% off and I had bought an off white sweater. I hadn’t thought about wearing it with the skirt until last night and it came out super cute! Luckily I have plum pointed flats with crossing ankle straps that went perfectly with the outfit, and a navy and purple statement necklace from Charming Charlie. This is a perfect outfit for the office that was actually pretty warm.

New Blouse! 

Last week at work was spirit week so I didn’t get a chance to wear my new blouse until today. It’s so dainty and girly, I love it! It can also be worn with a lot of different bottoms, causal or dressy. I got it at Macy’s when I got the olive ankle slacks I posted last week, which I’m also wearing here. This outfit was so simple yet so cute. I went to Starbucks on the way to work and this older man told me how well I color coordinated because my purse matched! It was such a funny compliment to me but still nice.

Hope you had a happy Monday!

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.
