The other night I randomly decided to go shopping, I needed to find some outfits for a couple of upcoming parties/events I was going to. I was trying to avoid Nordstroms because I know that they have this adorable coral Kate Spade Bag that I have literally been having dreams about, but am not ready to drop $500 on…
So I took a trip to Marshalls instead- I was so excited with my finds! (Well most of them)
I guess us short girls have to stick to our rompers… 😉
So, back to my shopping trip… I was looking for color! I’ve been trying to buy more (only) colorful clothes lately. Look at how cute these two dresses that I snagged are!
I was so thrilled with my dress finds, and I was completely content… until I walked by this black DKNY purse. I just could not turn away (probably because it reminded me of my Kate Spade dream bag :(…)! Every time I walked by I found myself picking it up, trying it on, feeling the ridiculously smooth leather, then putting it back. But every time I left I’d immediately turn right back around to make sure nobody else had grabbed it. The more I thought about it, I figured it’d be the perfect purse for work, going out, or any special occasion…and truthfully I don’t have a small bag like that. I had to have it…
When I got home I discovered all of it’s functionalities! It appears as a traditional 2-strap handbag, but can be converted to a 1-strap shoulder or cross body bag. How convenient. My purchase was justified 🙂
What have you picked up lately? Anything fun or colorful?
Another awards show, another chance to oogle the amazing red carpet dresses! I’m a huge country music fan, I think that as a whole, country artists are the classiest, sweetest breed of musicians…and it refelcts in their attire.
I love that they all put in the effort to look fashionable, respectable, and professional at awards shows that are based around adkowledging them, and their music. It’s refreshing to see an awards show that has not turned into a mockery/Halloween party. (Cough, cough…the Grammys)
The Academy of Country Music Awards did not disappoint this year!
Here are my picks for best dressed…
One more for good measure…
Who did you think was the best dressed at the ACM’s this year?
I am completely guilty of having a pretty dull wardrobe- lots of grey and black! With this recent Spring/Summer weather we’ve been having I decided it was time to step it up! I told myself that from here on out, when shopping, I would ONLY buy colorful clothes. I put my maxxinista skills to work at Marshalls, TJ’s, some consignment spots, Forever 21, and H&M over the past few weeks.
Here are some of my recent, *colorful* purchases…
New shoes! 🙂
Lots of chunky new necklaces…
A new bag, belts and hair accessories…
I wore this new beautiful fuchsia dress with a beaded gold necklace to a recent work event.
I’ve even started to break out my spring polishes!
I’m currently wearing this pastel blue color, I’m loving it!
How does your wardrobe and shopping habits change when the weather warms up?
Here’s a little Spring color to brighten up the dreary Winter day we are having on the East Coast. I had a dream the other night that I bought a pair of fuchsia skinny jeans, and I haven’t stopped thinking about them since!
I have red, pink, grey, and blue skinny jeans that I adore, but I’m ready to expand to my collection for the Spring/Summer months. I’m officially on a hunt for pairs of fuchsia, peach, yellow, and greens!
Gap, Express, J. Crew, and Pac Sun have all been recommended to me by some lovely twitter followers.
As you know, I am in love with my gel manicures– when I was home for the Superbowl I did the cutest Valentines Day inspired Gelish mani on my sister, and I couldn’t wait to share.
We used three Gelish mini colors:
Stand Out is more vibrantly red than the above image, we decided to paint that on her thumb and pinky nails, Rendezvous dries much more hot pink, we put that on her index and ring nails and Exhale, a light pink/mauve color went on her middle.
I love how this manicure came out- it’s still clean, but it has a fun twist. We even considered adding a small white heart to a couple of fingers.
Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays, and pairing it with a cute manicure makes it that much better. 🙂
