Little Ruffles

This is my THIRD post about a ruffle top! Convinced I am obsessed yet? I absolutely love the little dainty ruffles down the front of this button up blouse from Target (unfortunately it is sold out because I bought it a little while ago). The little ruffles give it just enough fun detail without being too much. Target’s new brand, A New Day, in my opinion is doing really well. I can always find something I like and the price point is great. When I saw the pieces coming out I thought they would cost more but they are around the same price or even cheaper than some of the other Target brands.

I paired this top with my Topshop high waist black cigarette pants from Nordstrom (which I seem to be pairing with everything lately). One thing I love about this pants is that they make your waist look so tiny! This combo made a great work outfit. I finished it off with my red Steve Madden heels and a red lip for a pop of color.  The only thing I do not care for on this shirt is that the sides come up high almost like a slit. This makes it to where you have to wear higher waisted pants whether you tuck it in or not because then your stomach shows, which is not really appropriate for the office.

Check it out! 🙂

Plaid Ruffles!

Topshop High Waist Cigarette TrousersAre you seeing the reoccurring theme yet with these ruffles? Basically I am obsessed and I really hope they do not got out of style soon because I am far too invested at this point. I saw this cute plaid and ruffle top when I was walking around BP at Nordstrom and I was instantly in love. Sometimes I reflect on the styles I am drawn to today and think of how I would have never thought twice about it back in high school or the beginning of college. This is one of those moments. The ruffles on this top are so prominent and I love them. Back then I would have laughed and agreed with my boyfriend when he called me a linebacker… like I said on Instagram, boys know nothing. *Insert Bride Wars quote “What do they teach boys in school?!”

Anyways, this top is different and I love it. The colors are very in with the holiday spirit so I am happy that we are past Halloween and I can finally wear it. Plus it has actually, for the most part, been cool enough to wear it. I saw it at Nordstrom, thought about it nonstop for like three days and bought it before I regretted it. It was my “congratulations you have been at your new job a year” gift. It was a splurge and I bought it full price. Of course NOW it is on sale for 40% off, but you know what? I wanted it to much I’m not even that mad about it.


I love that it can be worn casually or dressed up. This past Saturday I paired it with my high waist Topshop Jamies and my over the knee tan boots from Target (dv for Target last year) and I loved it. This may sound weird but you know when you are rocking an outfit that most people would say they couldn’t pull off, it just makes you feel cooler? That was me and I relished in it.


On the dressed up end for work, I paired it with my, again, high waist Topshop cigarette trousers, my red bow heels from Steve Madden (older), and a red lip. I thought it was fun to bring out the red in the top. The perfect pairing yet again! I am just so obsessed. I will link all pieces below but if you like it go check it out because I do not know how long the sale lasts. Embrace the ruffle movement with me! 😉

Pop of Color

How cute is this midi skirt?! I wasn’t sure if it was too circus tent-y, but I couldn’t get it out of my head from the moment I saw it. I decided it was too fun not to buy. I wore it to work but it would also be great for dress up events like brunch, a bridal shower, or a birthday party. 

I paired it with my sleeveless chambray top and my rose gold heels, you know for a little pop, because a bright yellow skirt needs more pop…

I got so many compliments on this outfit from the minute I walked in the door at work! I just loved it! Probably one of the best parts about it is how inexpensive the skirt is. I got it half off on BooHoo.com. I’m excited to see what other looks I can make with it. Check it out!

Goal: Be Cozy

I went into Target today with no specific goal, per usual, and of course found something. As soon as I walked into the clothes section I spotted a sweater that I wanted. I love when you are thinking about a certain item you want and then you accidentally come across the perfect version (because do we ever find anything when we are actively looking for it? No.) I checked the Target Cartwheel app. and it had a coupon for 40% off women’s sweaters! Obviously meant to buy it so into the basket it went. For anyone who doesn’t use the Target Cartwheel app. please check it out. I have been using it for about 3 years now and I have saved $435.76 total!

Anyways my new sweater is the perfect shade of light pink, super soft, oversized, and cable knit. If there is anything better than a sweater, it is an oversized sweater. I also bought the essie gel couture polish in Touch Up and the top coat. I haven’t tried it yet but I am pretty excited to, hopefully tomorrow I will have more time to do it. I have been trying to be better and save money and NOT get my nails done at a salon so we will see how long this gel polish lasts without chipping. I will test it out and report back!

Lastly, I am so excited. I saw Gigi Hadid post a picture of the cover of the Vogue It Girl Style on her insta. not too long ago (because I am obsessed with her), and I had to have it! I was sad when I realized that it was an October edition and not in any stores anymore. I looked on Amazon because that was how determined I was to have it, and I found it! So worth it because it is BEAUTIFUL. I decided that my favorite Vogue covers are going to be my new collection. I have this one to add to my other favorite, the Taylor Swift cover (yeah whatever I am kind of nerdy but its cool!). Check out all of my little finds below and have a great night!

First Day Look

Today was my first day at my new job! I am now a Branch Facilities Coordinator at New American Funding. I was so excited/nervous this morning! Orientation was really cool though and actually fun. It also helps that one of my best friends works there too, in another department but we still get to have lunch together.

So the dress code here is business casual with casual Fridays. For the first day I wanted to wear something that was not too dressy, but not too casual either. I wanted to gauge  how everyone else dressed in the office. It turned out my outfit was perfect, just enough dressed up. I chose my ankle slacks from Target (my favorite work pants), and my new loose white and black polkadot ruffle-hem top from Maison Jules at Macy’s. To go over my top I picked my new mustard cardigan from Target, I LOVE pairing mustard over black and white. For shoes I knew I wanted to wear flats, and although it may sound weird to some I went with the leopard pointed toe flats from Target. I know polkadots and leopard print doesn’t sound like it goes together but it worked really well! The leopard print went with the color scheme of black and mustard.

…See!

Knox Rose Roundup

For any of you who follow my Instagram (@the.B.Law) you’ve seen my recent new obsession, Knox Rose at Target. This line has just gotten me so excited! The style is mostly boho, yet some are only slightly boho, if that even makes sense. I have been getting more into this style lately thanks to my Roomie, thanks girl! In this short time span I have acquired four new pieces from the line… oops? Two were on sale though so it is okay…actually all four were on sale so it’s definitely okay! Anyways let’s check it out!

The first one I got was this tank that I like to call my indian top but it is actually named the Embroidered Tank Top in cream. You’ll see what I mean when you see the embroidery. I LOVE this tank! It has the cutest fringe detail on the bottom and is pretty long on, but not too long where it looks weird with shorts. On Memorial Day weekend I wore it with my boyfriend shorts from Old Navy, and my new Gladiator sandals and hat both from Target as well.

The second top I got, well actually I bought the first tank, the gladiator sandals, and this second top together because they were all 30% for Memorial Day weekend. This top is too cute! I love it because it is kind of different. This is one of the examples of how some of the Knox Rose pieces can be slightly boho.

The ruffle peasant arms and ruffle peplum bottom make this top feel so girly! There is also a subtle polkadot detail on the entire top that is in the same color as the rest of the fabric however it is textured, you can feel the polkadots. The crocheted neck helps to keep the boho feel. Also how awesome is this bright red?! I recently discovered that I can actually can wear red with red hair, and I like it! I am wearing red this weekend too but that is for a different post!

This third piece I found this past Friday and was on the clearance rack for $19! It is something I normally wouldn’t wear but I fell in love! It is perfect to add a little something to your outfit!

I cannot wait to figure out what I can wear this white and indigo Tie Dye Vest with next! It is just so fun, I wore it to the zoo on Saturday when I went with my boyfriend’s mom, sister, and nephew. It is the perfect addition to a simple and casual summer outfit to do just about anything in!

Lastly I found a beige oversized knit cardigan on the clearance rack for $8! I recently just discovered why it was on clearance as my thumb went into a hole but it is okay. The hole is in the seam and totally fixable so it was so worth the $8. It is so soft and comfortable I wore it all day at work yesterday and never wanted to take it off! The color is so perfect to literally go over anything. I didn’t get a picture yet but you can check it out here: Layering Knit Top with Crochet in Beige – Knox Rose at Target.

If you haven’t done so, go check out the Knox Rose line at Target you really won’t regret it! I already have my eye on a couple of other items!

Talk to you soon!

Who – What – Wear – PINK!

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!
