Chambray all Day

Happy Friday! Today it was crazy windy (like over 30 mph). After being at the gym this morning I determined it really didn't pay to do my hair so a messy pony it was!

Denim on Denim has been seen all over as a trend, but believe me I will never take it as far as the JT & Brittney look (oh my) from a few years ago. For today's look I chose a lightwash chambray blouse from Target, and a slightly darker distressed pair of jeans from ZARA. You can do denim on denim as long as a) you feel confident in it, and b) you have the right denim on denim hues :)

Originally I was going to go very simple without a necklace, but I could not get the collar on this top to lay correctly so I buttoned it up and chose one of my favorite statement necklaces from dressbarn's dressbar jewelry collection last spring. 

To stick with the casual vibe I chose a cute pair of lace-up wedge booties from Kohl's. I scored these today for under $20!

Hopefully you didn't blow away today!

The Day of Love

Valentine's Day...traditionally the day of showing that special someone you care about love, affection, and a little something extra than you would on a normal day. This weekend was pretty low key with Shayne & I and I am A-Okay with that! I always appreciate all that he does for me and the wonderful way he treats me everyday! 

Today I chose one of my favorite sleeved dresses for church and time with my family this afternoon. It was a deal & steal from Kohl's last year. At first I really didn't care for the pattern, but it has definitely grown on me! If you look close enough you may be able to see that it embraces this year's colors of the year: Rose Quartz & Serenity.

Hopefully you had a wonderful weekend!

Nude + Blush

Happy February! Today has been a gorgeous day, and even though it was really only 27 degrees, it felt like 40 because of the sun shining in my face. I met my friend Jacob for lunch downtown so I wanted today's look to be chic, but yet casual. 
 A dress is always an easy, go-to, throw on, perfect piece to start your look with. I found this stunning nude sequin dress (with pockets) at Target last night for under $9 (online return). 
Over the dress I chose a light wash jean jacket (thrifted for $10), accessorized with a snakeskin bronze clutch (thrifted <$1) and wooden "tooth" necklace (Boston Store, $15), and finished the look with Jennifer Lopez shimmering neutral/bronze booties (thrifted for $15). All of these finishing touches dress down this sequin frock, and make it more practical for being out and about in. 
This gorgeous sequin dress is dressy enough for any special event, but I wanted to show how I would play off the dressy style for a nice dinner or wedding.
I chose a blush/neutral lightweight dress coat (forever 21 $15), blush snakeskin heels (Goodwill $5), and statement necklace (Wal-Mart $5) to compliment this somewhat more dressy look. 
Have a fabulous end to your week!
