Sweetly Scalloped

DSC02321

There’s something so feminine and adorable about scalloped edges. I used to love using the crazy edged scissors that were scalloped, now that love has moved to clothing. I found this top hidden on the Marshall’s clearance rack for $10 and it was the perfect light flowly material. I decided to wear it to Fancy Pants’ grandmother’s 80th Birthday Dinner at the club with a cardigan and skinny jeans. But I decided to keep it even more fun with the blue jeggings earlier that day. Also, don’t forget to head over the American Eagle Project Live Your Life contest to vote for me!! :)

Springtime Denim Vest

DSC02180.jpg

When I went into American Eagle last weekend and saw this denim vest, I knew it would be a spring staple! It’s a great light wash cropped vest. It hits at the perfect point and I love how it’s paired with the robin’s egg blue jeggings. They’re so very spring. I got to wear my wonderful Jack Rogers Navajo sandals that I ordered from Ruelala for the first time too.  I can’t wait to wear them and the vest over even more outfits in the coming months. I’d also like to share that for the next few weeks, my roots will be growing out as I slowly make the transition back to brunette. :)

Casual Gems

A new week always comes much faster than we anticipate. Thankfully this past weekend was a lot of fun. I went to help Fancy Pants practice for softball (I can’t slow pitch for crap), I got to catch up with one of close long time friends who was in town for the weekend, and yesterday I got treated to a mini Old Navy shopping spree of sorts. Everything purchased yesterday was GUESS WHAT, ON SALE! It was phenomenal to pick up some pieces that I was searching for and also a few other special ones. This shirt was one that I wanted and it’s surprise surprise, chambray at only $7!!! But I love this one because it’s short sleeve and a bit darker than my other staple one, so it will transition into spring and summer. I wanted this look to be very causal chic which was easily achieved with the plum jeans and the boots. I wanted to of course make it a little cuter, so I added the statement gem necklace in the neutral blush and gold tones.

Still Rock and Roll to Me

Fur vests are huge right now. They’re everywhere on everyone. Thankfully I didn’t have to spend the money to jump on the bandwagon because my mom bought a fur vest a year ago. I’m not big into vests to be honest. There’s a very short amount of time that you could even wear one in Arizona, but there’s something so cute about fur ones. I think they’re trendy and edgy, but still able to be matched with basics without looking too “rock and roll Mick Jagger.” haha. That’s absolutely right up my alley. I went simple with mine pairing it with a plum jeggings, black wedges, and a black long sleeve t-shirt. It was the perfect casual dressy combination for my staff meeting at work . I think this is a great day to night transition outfit. Pair it with nude flats for school or work and then switch out the pink lip for a berry or red and add heels.
