Hello Shoulders

Isn’t this dress just the cutest?! I found it when I got the yellow kimono (post linked here if you missed it) at Heavenly Couture in Palm Springs. I really can’t wait to go there again, this dress was only $16.99 too! I saw it and instantly wanted it for Mexico. That has been my really bad excuse of why I keep buying things, “but I need it for Mexico!” I have plenty of things for Mexico but you know how we are girls! My packing list looks like I am moving there, but a girl has to have options! We leave on Wednesday night!

Anyways, this dress is so cute and comfy. I feel so dressed up in it even though it is so simple. I used it as one of my outfits for our photoshoot with Sarah Drew (Instagram linked here!) in Lake Elsinore-ish.


Can we also please discuss these wedges?! My bffffff found them online at Macy’s and we both bought them because why not, half of our wardrobe is exactly the same anyways! We had both seen a lot of bloggers wearing similar ones but they were sooooo expensive. These babies full price are only $69! We both got them on sale though for $35! What. A. STEAL! They are so incredibly comfortable, they barely feel like a heel because of the platform. I can’t wait to wear this outfit in Mexico. Check it out!

Pink Chambray

Occasionally, as in more than I should, I stroll through the clothes section of Target. The other day I passed through and didn’t really see anything that I liked. It is hard when the seasons are changing and stores are redoing their entire floor set. I decided I was being good not finding anything and started to walk away… until I came across this dress! Pink chambray, how perfect is it? I grabbed one off the rack and didn’t even try it on, just went to the check out.


This dress is the perfect shade of pink and goes perfectly with all tans and browns. This time I paired my chestnut booties from Steve Madden (clearly my new favs since they are in most of my recent posts) but next I can even try my tan heels to make it more business casual for work. You can even add a sweater or a denim jacket to add more. I can’t wait to wear this again! I’m thinking this weekend with the sun coming out! (I am having trouble finding it online to link it but I will try looking again tonight!)



Shift Dress

I pretty much want to buy this dress in every color and print they have. I just love how pretty you feel in it yet you’re totally comfortable. It almost feels like a secret, like “yeah everyone thinks I look all good but really I wore this dress because I was lazy and it’s comfy,” you get me? If you missed my first post on this dress you can read it here. It’s just the perfect little shift dress that’s great for any dinner, brunch, bridal shower, anything! Anything except work for me… I’m tall but I wear a small so dresses are usually a little too short. I think if I got another color though and wore it with tights I’d be okay, I’ll test it out maybe. Anyways here it is linked again by Soprano at Nordstrom! Happy Hump Day!




The Perfect Little Dinner Dress (or brunch!)

Happy Wednesday! We are half way there, just hang on a little longer! I wanted to share this cute little dress I got last week for a nice dinner. We had a friend take my boyfriend and I out to a really nice place called The Summit House and I was going crazy trying to figure out what to wear. I knew the restaurant was nice but I wasn’t sure how nice and most, or really all of my dresses were not right for the occasion. I recently got rid of quite a few and am in need of replenishment. I found this loose navy, floral chiffon shift dress at Nordstrom for just under $50! The colors are still great for winter but the flowers make it okay for spring as well. When I saw it I instantly thought I could wear it with my tan Steve Madden heels. It looked super cute and was dressy enough and not over the top! The sleeves are super cute too, they are slit and tie at the bottom. I can’t wait to wear it again for a brunch. For anyone interested in sizing, I’m 5’8″ and I got a small and it was just long enough!


(I’ll have another pic after this weekend! My bfffff and I are going to have some fun taking more pictures!)

Girly Dress

I love wearing dresses. Not only are they cute but they are just so easy. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before but it’s a whole outfit in one piece of clothing. Anything you add to it just enhances it. I found this purple floral dress at Target and I was so surprised. The style and print are so cute, their Xhilaration brand has really been stepping up their style and have come out with a lot of cute new dresses. I love how girly this one makes me feel. 

Although this dress does perfectly well on its own, for work purposes I added a striped white and navy blazer. The pattern doesn’t match but I have been so into that lately, ESPECIALLY stripes and floral prints. It just works. I also loved the whole color scheme: navy, purple, and white. As for shoes, instead of pairing my perfectly matching navy pumps, I tried nude heels and it worked! I took a chance with these ones as the heel is a nude snakeskin but the color is subtle enough to blend. When I wore this outfit out I ended up wearing a chunky nude sandal heel by Steve Madden. 

This dress can quickly be changed from work to a more casual/going out outfit. I ditched the blazer and heels and added a blue statement necklace and over the knee taupe boots. So. Perfect. This definitely might be a holiday party combo.

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!

Blanket Scarf, Shift Dress, Over the Knee Boots, OH MY!

This outfit I have been waiting to wear forEVER! Even before I bought all the pieces I was still anticipating wearing it. I saw something similar on Pinterest and was so determined to make it my own! Looking on Pinterest, I pinned this 14 weeks ago! That is how determined I was!


When I have an outfit in mind, it tends to just fall into place. I know what I want so I will not settle for something less, so if it takes me a little longer to find it then it is all worth it for it to be perfect. I finally found the right dress when I was in Old Navy looking for a dress for Thanksgiving. The dress in the picture is more of a bodycon, but I wanted something looser. I found the perfect textured, black shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves, and was loose yet somewhat fitted. The kind of fitted where when you walked it would form to your body rather than flow. (It was also 40% so what other convincing did I need).

Next I got the boots. I have been seeing these over the knee boots all over Instagram and I wanted them! My go to is Macy’s because I have a Macy’s card (seriously so dangerous). I looked up Steve Madden and there they were, the GORGEOUS, but only black! I wanted the gray I kept seeing. I tell you I stalked the Macy’s website almost everyday. Finally when I checked for like the 50th time, they had another color! The picture looked gray but the description said taupe. BUT THEY ONLY HAD SIZE 9! Someone must have returned them. I didn’t give up though, I kept stalking. Finally they had all the sizes, yet the picture still showed gray but the description said taupe. I knew they were different because I did my research on the Steve Madden website, fashion is serious, some research required (lol!). I ordered them anyways, and if they came in and were actually taupe and I didn’t like them, then I could return them. Again, these were on sale too or I probably would not have bought them. Well they came in and were the perfect color, I was actually glad they were not gray because the tone of taupe they are can go with pretty much anything!

Lastly the blanket scarf. I remember Audree from Simply Audree Kate, said last year I think that she got one from Amazon. I searched and found one for $7! It kind of took awhile to come in but once it did, my outfit was complete! I just needed a place to wear it, when the perfect opportunity came, my roomie’s birthday (which is actually today- Happy Birthday!) but we went to brunch yesterday at the Saddle Ranch in Orange. It was a hit! Check it out…
