Have you ever heard of Rocksbox? If you have you know how cool it is, if you haven’t then let me tell you! Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription box that delivers three pieces of designer jewelry to your door for $21 a month! You get to wear all three pieces and return them, OR if you absolutely love one, two, or all three pieces you can buy them. This is my first box and I already purchased one of the items… it was just too perfect to pass up!
What I love about this subscription is that fact that you are technically renting your jewelry. I like trying new accessories but I often end up with a lot of pieces I bought for a specific event and then don’t wear for a really long time. With Rocksbox I get to have new pieces all the time and not worry about buying them full price and leaving them to collect dust. If during the month of my box I have a piece I have worn multiple times and can see myself wearing it even more, then I can buy it. It is like testing out your accessories before buying committing.
In my current set I got a statement necklace, a pair of earrings, and a bracelet. My favorite is the necklace, this is the piece I bought:
It is the Colette Necklace by Perry Street and it is absolutely beautiful! I have worn it three times already and I already can’t wait to wear it again. It is just so sparkly.
The earrings I received are called the Vivienne Ear Climbers by Gorjana. I have never tried ear climbers before but they are so cool! These ones were fun yet still dainty. It is a different way to wear fun earrings without having to wear dangly ones.
Lastly I got a bracelet by Kendra Scott called the Laura Pinch Bracelet in Turquoise Magnesite. I love this style of bracelet because one they are dainty and you can layer them, and two, you can adjust this type of cuff which is great when you have thin wrists like I do.
If you love accessories or you want to get into wearing them, this is a great subscription box for anyone. I cannot wait to see what comes in my next set! When you sign up you add at least 30 items to your wish list, then your assigned stylist will choose items for your from you list. I was so excited and there were so many cute pieces that I added 160 to my wish list when I first signed up… Before your set is ready to ship out you get the chance to preview it and change out one item if you want, or you can just be surprised and see it when it comes in. If you want to give it a try use my code “theblawxoxo” to get your first month free! My sister already signed up and ended up buying the same necklace as me because she saw me wearing it Check out Rocksbox here!
I know I always say that Fall is my favorite season but Spring is my second favorite and there are SO MANY cute new clothes coming out! In my last post Spring Dress! I talked about a few things that I had found at the Old Navy Spring Sale (seriously go check it out). Well today I found a top to go with the shorts that I got last week. These cuffed linen shorts in “BLUSHIN UP” are totally cute and were on sale for $15! Not only are they super casual, but you can dress them up with wedges and still feel like you are in PJ shorts! I mean what is better than wearing lounge wear all day?! The tank I just happened to pass by and thought it was cute. It was also $15 normal price. I love dressing up graphic tees/tanks with statement necklaces to get a dressy casual look in that way that says “I always dress cute even when I am not trying” kind of way (life goal). Check it out:

On Wednesdays we wear an outfit again… (I really hope you understood that reference)
Anyways… It’s Wear Again Wednesday where I take a previously worn outfit and change it up a bit. For those of you who know me I rarely wear the exact same outfit more than once unless it’s one I REALLY love. But I’ve been trying to recycle my outfits instead of shopping and it’s working however, it does take some work. It can be so hard to just stare at your closet and see all the same clothes all the time. Imagination is needed to create new outfits! I saw the sleeve of one of my chambray tops sticking out of my overstuffed closet and saw the bottom of my red striped t-shirt dress and this outfit instantly came to me. I bought this dress and necklace last year for the Fourth of July. It’s a combination that is pretty noticeable when worn again so I changed the shoes and added the chambray top and left it open like a cardigan. Although very similar to the original version, I liked it better today!
If any of you share my feelings about repeating outfits try this out! It is almost like a challenge to myself to reinvent something I have already worn!
As for shopping this look I can tell you where everything is from, but it is all older so I can’t link the exact items: dress- Target / chambray top- Forever 21 / statement necklace- Charming Charlie / sandal wedges- Madden Girl by Steve Madden
Remember my second to last post Red, White, and Plaid! when I talked about loving the ankle slacks from Target? Welllll I got another pair… But I had to! They’re PINK! They don’t sell this color in the store so I had to order them. They came in Friday so OF COURSE I had to wear them to work today! I am also in love with this new striped tank I got to go with them. It’s also from Target but from the WhoWhatWear line. It’s the perfect shape and is a light chiffon material but not so see through where you have to worry about wearing something underneath. I paired this combo with a black statement necklace from Charming Charlie and my peep toe booties from G Stage. It is my new favorite outfit right now!

I recently became an advisor for my sorority and Sunday evening we had our first meeting of the semester. It may have been the first meeting of the semester, but it was my first meeting as an advisor ever. It was only going to be for an hour and at a brewing company, but my first thoughts were “What do I wear?!” I figured it had to be casual since it was so short and where it was being held at. I asked my friend who was going earlier last week and she said she was going casual. But the day of I asked her again because things change, but she didn’t respond! I was left on my own! One of my fears is being underdressed. I just picture myself walking into a place and everyone staring at me thinking “She came wearing that?!” and laughing to themselves. Biggest fear! So I always try to be a little overdressed, but in that “I’m not overdressed, I always dress like this” kind of way… did I even just make sense?
Anyways with no confirmation I just picked a casual and cute outfit (which I did not take a picture of… my bad) of jeans, a purple knit sweater, a white, cream, and tan statement necklace from my last post, and my new tan booties that I posted on Instagram but not on here I just realized! (they were only $21.99 from G Stage!)
I thought it all looked cute and when I got to the meeting I fit in perfectly, everyone was casual. Thanks goodness!

Sorry this is a late post, I have been a little under the weather, but feeling better now! Anyways, I was just talking to someone last week while wearing my oversized tan blazer, about wanting a gray or a black oversized blazer. Well over the weekend I went to G Stage with my sister and saw one on a mannequin! It was love at first sight. I tried it on and was instantly sold, and get this… it was only $17.99! I was even more sold after seeing the price tag. I can’t wait for all of the other outfits I can create with this! This one is just the beginning!

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…
