Valentine’s Countdown: Day 4

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!

Weekend Wrap Up

It is always so sad when the weekend is over, especially when it was a fun one. Usually we don’t do anything on Friday nights because we finally get to relax after the long week, but this past Friday was the Year End Party for my work. I work at the New American Funding corporate office and I had heard so much hype about the year end party from how dressed up people get to how a rapper showed up last year. I only know a handful of people (the team I work with is only 4 people and the whole office is about 600), but I wanted to check it out so my boyfriend and I decided we would go for a little bit and meet up with my manager and his wife. I had bought the cutest silver shift dress but when I went to put it on the strap broke! I had to resort to a black dress, my LBD. There were well over 1,000 people there. Around 10:30pm we were getting tired but we could see the stage being set up for something, we figured maybe another artist would make an appearance this year. Soon after Nelly walked out from behind a curtain! It was fun and nostalgic hearing his early songs I had first heard in elementary school. My boyfriend and I decided to head out at 11:30pm.

Saturday, after getting into bed at 1am I got up at 5:45am to get ready and go meet my bfffffff in down town Claremont. She was going to take some pictures for me for the blog and they actually came out really well for our first time trying this and using my camera! It was also a lot of fun, I am awkward, she is awkward, so we just cancel each other out haha! I am excited to share all of the photos soon. We are already planning our next photo adventure exploring more in Claremont.

Sunday I was dead. I had all of these plans of being so productive, cleaning and wrapping Christmas presents and I woke up with the WORST sinus headache, and I still have it now, ugh! I powered through though. I would clean one thing, then take a nap, and repeat.

Today I was excited though despite my headache because I finally debuted my pink velvet heels from my last post Pink VelvetI got so many compliments and I just felt so fancy and pretty in them! I already want to wear them again. Here is the picture we took of them Saturday but of course I wore them with black slacks today to work, and I paired my cream sweater and a gold statement necklace.

I hope you all had a great weekend too!

Dainty Gold

I have gotten into this bad habit of only getting necklaces when I go to buy accessories. I had $15 worth of coupons for Charming Charlie so when I went I decided to make a change, I was only going to buy bracelets. What usually draws me away from them is that they never fit my wrist, but I have been seeing a lot of those dainty gold cuffs and they are generally pretty small so I decided to look for those. I ended up finding four and they were only $8-10 each! They are pretty popular right now so Charming Charlie had a good variety. These are the ones I found…

The blooper of this story… I was trying to take one of those cute staged pictures of these bracelets on top of my magazine, but I wanted better lighting. So I carried my magazine onto the patio for some natural light and as I was walking out one of my bracelets, the last picture, slid off my magazine and rolled off the patio into the yard of the apartment below me! My bfffff and I just stared at it. I was so bitter! How could I have done that?! I don’t even know my neighbors! So I went and knocked on their door and although I could hear people inside, no one answered -_-. So my bfffff and I went on a 4.5 mile walk to the beach and when we got back we tried the door again. Finally after knocking twice someone answered and I got my bracelet back! I was so happy! Haha that is my tragic story trying to be a photographer.

Haute Hat

I see so many cute hats all over Instagram and I finally got my own! When I bought my favorite sweater of this season at Target I passed by this hat and just glanced at it, and later kept thinking about it. I decided that it would go great with my new sweater, figures I would convince myself to buy it, and when I went back to buy it, it wasn’t on sale anymore! I was so bummed but didn’t give up hope, it was after Thanksgiving so another sale was bound to happen. I couldn’t stop thinking about it though and kept envisioning my outfit wearing the hat with my new sweater. I checked online and it was on sale online only. I ordered it and picked it up in store.

A majority of this outfit is actually from Target, except for the jeans and the necklace. My jeans are from Abercrombie & Fitch and my necklace is from Charming Charlie. Also please admire these heels. I think they are so adorable. I had been wanting pointy leopard heels and of course found them at Target, because Target has everything. I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down, like wearing them here with distressed jeans.

Take a look…
