Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have all been well and had a great weekend. We had my older sister’s surprise party for her 30th birthday. Let me tell you, surprise parties are hard to plan especially when you live with the person you are surprising! Plus she is crazy in the best possible way and insisted on throwing her own party thinking we were not going to do anything anyways, so all of her friends were getting so confused keeping the fake party and the real party straight. By the time it came around she was very suspicious of the surprise, like I am pretty sure she knew, but we all had a great time and she got very drunk so all was well!
I have been SO obsessed with statement earrings. I am sure this is a common obsession since they are very popular right now, but I love adding them to everything as a fun pop! I feel like they are a way to get extra creative, like you can get brave and wear fun and funky ones. I love adding them for a pop of color especially with a darker or a plainer outfit. Here I added them to my black and white striped one piece bathing suit and it completely changed the look. The suit is cute by itself but there is only so much you can do with a one piece, it is just one piece so it’s a little plain. The earrings actually made it a look and is so fun for a weekend by the pool or a pool party.

Right now my favorite place to get fun earrings is Target. I am so obsessed with the Sugar Fix by BaubleBar line there. BaubleBar is so cute but I can always justify the price for earrings, but their line at Target I think is just as nice as their normal line. Most of the styles by Sugar Fix are around $12-$15, totally affordable! I think I have like 6 pairs so far! If you have any suggestions for fun earrings please send them my way!
Have a great week and the 4h of July is just around the corner!
We have reached the midway point for mine and Heather’s (best friend and old roomie) 30 day challenge. If you haven’t been following along on Instagram (@the.B.Law and @heathersheridan), Heather and I are doing a 30 day shopping ban for the month of August PLUS we have to wear a different outfit everyday with no repeats. Between her and I, we have so many clothes that it didn’t seem too difficult, but I have noticed for work purposes since I am in an office it really takes effort to plan ahead of time. At the end of the 30 days we are going to go though our closets together and get rid of the stuff we didn’t wear. We figured it will be a good way to “fall clean” since we failed at spring cleaning. We have been going strong! I think our biggest struggle is taking our own picture everyday and not having someone to do it for us!
Check out out progress so far and be sure to follow along on Insta!
Second up on the.B.Law Style Panel we have Tabitha! Like Heather, she is also going to talk about general style but with her own twist. I have always called Tabitha my flower child, she has always had that more creative style. She is the reason I started pattern mixing, after much pushback. What makes her style so creative is that Tabitha is big on DIY projects and thrifting. I am excited for some of the things she wants to share here. One time, she made a skirt out of a mens’ button up she got at a thrift store. The shirt was a fish print, and our dad had basically the same shirt. I will have to see if she can dig up the picture.
Oh so up there I said “our dad”. Yep I have known Tabitha since she entered this world 23 years ago, she is my younger sister! (note: I am working on saying “younger” instead of “little” because she isn’t little anymore. Just like my older sister can’t call me little) Anyways, Tabitha is pretty amazing. Apart from having great style, she is a great writer, like super great as in you should look forward to reading her blog posts. In fact, you should actually check out her blog too because she is just such a good writer!! Find her blog here —> Tab in Transit <— She will be starting grad school this summer for creative writing, and will most likely be a famous author one day. She has even been published in the LA Review! Okay have I bragged too much yet? I am sorry, I am just so proud of her! She may be my younger sister, but I totally look up to her. Be sure to come back because I want you to love her too!
