tye dye


 

I was really into tye dye when I was younger. I had...and may or may not...STILL have tye dye t-shirts! I even used to have a tye dye one piece that I was absolutely in LOVE with! I begged my mom to order it from the JC Penny catalog. One of the best purchases ever made, next to this tye dye shirt of course! This shirt is so funky and fun...and comfortable! This is a more classy and older way to wear tye dye! It can be done ladies! I love the high lo cut of the shirt as well! Just remember that tye dye is still IN, just do it right! ;) Oh, I love the way the top peeks out from underneath the cardigan as well! It really adds a little interest to the whole look!

pop of color

 



I hear so many people say they can't wear black and brown together. I wish I knew who originally said this because I would definitely tell them what's up! Ladies, black and brown certainly go together and just go on and add a little red in there just to mix things up! Since the rest of my outfit was pretty neutral, the red scarf really became the centerpiece of this outfit! Even though it did get up to 70 degrees today, I wasn't taking off this scarf and ruining the whole thing! So with all this said, I challenge you to wear your black and brown together today!

texture

 




I got this dress and sweater on a BOGO deal! I have been looking for a sweater this color for a LONG time, but I just never found the perfect one. Then I saw this one, and a heavenly light shining down on it! After seeing the marked down price tag, I didn't think twice. I snagged it, then they informed me that it was BOGO and it just so happened that this dress, in my size, was left on the rack! It was a good day and so was today! When I put on this dress this morning, I didn't remember it being this short, but the rule is if your showing more on the bottom, cover your top and if your showing a lot up top, then cover the bottom. My favorite part about this is mixing textures, lace and a knit sweater. It creates depth to any outfit! We also took engagement pictures today with the lovely Katie McGee and this was the perfect outfit for the day!

cozy kind of day







There's one thing I'll never say no to. That one thing is a big, comfy, cozy sweater like this one! When I was younger I could never find sweaters I liked. I would always get these tight fitting sweaters that ended up making me itch like crazy by the end of the day. Now, thanks to the loose fitting clothing trend, I've found my solution to "switchiness," short for sweater itchiness! I've never been a big fan of colder weather, but if I get to wear big sweaters, then I'll take the cold anyday. I think a chunky, knit sweater, in a neutral color, is a staple piece! You all should have one!

leather + plaid

 



So, I had a completely different outfit planned out in my head for today, then something unexpected happened. As I was wiggling into my opaque black tights this morning, I ripped a huge hole in them! They just don't make tights like they used to ladies, such a sad truth. So already running late (not unusual) and in panic mode, I grabbed these leather gems and said to myself, "Let's do this!" To even out my scandalous pants, I threw on a plaid button down that I snagged in the men's section at Forever 21! The men's section is the place to find shirts like this, fyi! My fiance was jealous that I got this for myself and not him...sorry I'm not sorry. On a side note, was anyone else not informed that men's shirts button the opposite way than women's?? Somehow I was left in the dark on this and now this shirt is officially the hardest shirt to put on, but I'm always up for a challenge!!

freedom flares

    

 
Ok, when I hear the words, "flared jeans" my mind automatically goes back to middle school. I remember wearing my ripped flared jeans with socks and birkenstocks!! Does anyone else remember this? I thought I was hot stuff, seriously. When I think of flares I also think of my 16th birthday party. I wore flares, with a good sequin belt,a green 3/4 length sleeve polo and birkenstocks. Just for the record...no more slide on birkenstocks for me, y'all! When my mom bought me my first pair of skinny jeans for Christmas, I felt confused. Flares were supposed to be "cool" and skinnies were just coming in (little did I know that I'd be in a love affair with them later in life). It was so daring to wear skinny jeans back then, but now I DARE to FLARE! I felt freedom from my "birkenstock days" in these jeans, like I had learned my lesson and I have conquered the flared jeans! Ladies, show the flares who's boss!P.S. Big thanks to my mom for daring me to dress like ME!....and to wear skinnies.

pajama monday







I don't know about you guys, but Monday's=Pajama's. You know those days where you have to look cute, but what you really want to do is sit in your bed all day, eating icecream, and watching Dawson's Creek re-run's??? Well, that was what I wanted to do today, but unfornately I don't get paid for that (a girl can dream) and had to go to work. This is my lazy girl outfit! Come on, I know you all have them! You aren't fooling me! However..you can fool some people. Silk pants are such a great way to feel comfortable and look nice. If you don't have any yet, start shopping ladies...you'll thank me later!

january heat

 

 



This is supposed to be the coldest year of the month and I literally had to remove this sweater around noon! My mind doesn't even know what's happening now. Every morning I reach for a scarf, then realize it's kind of hot for that...then I reach for shorts and realize..it's January, and that just doesn't feel right! I'm all out of options for this weather. Any ideas ladies?

I don't know about you guys, but some days I feel like I hardly get to sleep, much less think about what I'm going to wear the next day. I mean, here I am blogging at 1:30 in the morning. Between wedding planning and working, I never feel like I'm going to make it! So here's a reminder to us busy ladies: Give yourself a break. I think tomorrow evening I may take time to read and sip coffee! You should too. In the meantime, take a look at this last minute, busy girl outfit I managed this morning. Oh, and p.s. if I look a little darker...it's because I am. I got a spray tan...and the first thing my fiance said to me was, "Hey Snooki!" Compliment? Most likely not.

feeling brave

  


I. Am. Wearing. White. Pants. and..it's totally okay! This fashion rule is completely out the door now. Trust me on this one! I felt so brave in this outfit, like Amelia Earhart ready to fly around the world. I think this jacket has that affect on me...I mean, it is a plum colored bomber jacket. If you wake up feeling courageous one morning, wear those white pants, girll!!! Just make sure to NOT pair them with something too light or flowy on top or it could look seasonally inappropriate for the winter!
