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!

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!

As I said in my last post, this week and next I will be introducing my new style panel! I am so excited, I have 6 awesome girls and they all have great things to contribute. So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Heather!
Heather and I met in college (in some weird cosmic way- story for another time) and then she joined my sorority Sigma Kappa. We continued to grow closer and closer. After graduation she got me a job as an assistant manager with her at Abercrombie and Fitch, AND THEN we were roommates! You all have probably seen her before from when the blog first started. For those of you who haven’t been with me since the beginning, the.B.Law wasn’t always the.B.Law. When I started the blog, 3 years ago next month, it was called Tragic Girls. Tragic Girls was about all of mine and Heather’s tragicness when we lived together. It was the first time we had both lived on our own, and although we were already very independent, we still had a lot to learn. If you are interested, check out these first few tragic posts here, here, here, here, and here! Since then, the blog has evolved and so has mine and Heather’s friendship. We do not live together anymore, but she is still one of my best friends and we talk every day. She is also one I run all of my fashion decisions by.
Heather and I both have tons of retail experience. I worked in retail for just shy of 8 years. Heather I believe is somewhere between 8-9 years? Is that right Heather? Correct me if I am wrong. All of those years are where we got all of our style influence, and turns out, we are pretty good. Heather is my general style and fashion forward panelist. She has great style for every occasion and is never afraid to try the new trends. Whenever I am unsure about trying something new, I am sending a picture of it over to Heather asking her opinion. She is just so great! Below are some fun facts, stay tuned for more and expect some great things from her!
- Describe your personal style in 3-5 words: Basic, boho, chic

Everyone say hi to Heather!
As I am sure you have noticed, ruffles are becoming a pretty big trend right now. I have been dabbling a little, but I have been noticing myself being drawn more and more to them. Last month, another blogger I follow was wearing this pink striped off the shoulder top and I thought it was so cute! I checked the online shop where she bought it from, SheIn, and it was only $14! Clearly I had to buy one. I also found these white hight waist “mom” shorts from Topshop at Nordstrom. The two paired together perfectly! I wore it to brunch with two of my girlfriends and everyone loved it. It sounds silly but I really loved the big ruffle because it made me feel so fancy! Check it out below!

Shoes are a very important aspect of a wardrobe. They are the thing that you will wear again and again through different outfits. I have a slight shoe problem, I have so many, but I know I am not alone in this addiction. My real issue is not the shoes but rather the fact that I do not have enough room for my shoes (no denial here right?!). The last pair I bought I literally had to get rid of an old pair just so my new pair would have a spot in my closet. I have all sorts from sneakers, to flats, to heels, boots, and booties. I think my obsession has gotten worse the last few months since I actually wear heels to work almost every day now. Why are shoes so important though?
Shoes play a very important role in your style, they can make or break an outfit. Often times they may even be the star of your outfit, the key factor that ties it together or sets your look apart. Personal style is a great way to express yourself and that goes all the way down to what you put on your feet. I think you can tell a lot about someone by their choice of shoes. Are they confident, outgoing, colorful, trying too hard, real or a fake? My shoe obsession does not end with my own feet, everyone I meet I look at their shoes. I even look at strangers’ shoes, it is just something that I do, it interests me. I have even used it on multiple occasions as a conversation starter.
I love this quote I came across today:
Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally – Christian Louboutin
He is so right. There is a certain feeling you get when you put on that new pair of shoes. You are excited to wear them and excited to be seen in them. You walk better in them, have more pep in your step. You get a sudden burst of confidence and your attitude is that like your new shoes, you too are new. I can relate to that, I love that new shoe feeling, just look at my closet!
Is anyone else with me on this?!
Today is the day, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all are being festive and are wearing pink or red! I think that is one of the main reasons I like Valentine’s Day, pink is my favorite color and so much cute stuff comes out at this time, and hearts!
Just as I promised I got a picture in my tutu skirt outfit from my day 2 post (find it here). I am so in love with this outfit and even more so when it is on. I feel like a princess with somewhere important to go. It is just so classy and girly I can’t get enough, and again I am still all about pairing my pink velvet heels with it. What a combo!
I hope you all enjoy today and eat some chocolate, I know I am! <3<3
A trend that has been really popular for quite awhile now is midi skirts. You can find so many different styles from solids, prints, velvet, chiffon, lace, tulle, pleats, and so many more. I am totally with this style right now. Not only are midi skirts cute, but they are great for work because they are always long enough! It is so annoying when you wear a short skirt sometimes. If it is a loose skirt you have to worry about the wind, if it is tight you have to worry about it riding up and you are constantly pulling it down. Neither of these happen with a midi (well they could but not as often). I currently have three, and I realized that all three would be great for Valentine’s Day. The tulle skirt I obviously posted already and am so in love with it (if you missed it you can find it here), the burgundy pleated skirt is a great way to utilize a different shade of the Valentine colors, and the gold can be paired with a pink or red top.
Now all of these skirts I bought quite awhile ago but I linked some similar ones for you below!
