Bedroom Decor

DSC04810bWhen we moved early last year, I was excited to have a blank slate to decorate my bedroom. It’s literally been a work in progress ever since then. I’m finally really pleased with where it is now. I started just with the basic color scheme of Robins Egg Blue and White and then things really just went from there. I will link to items where I can, but my biggest tip is to head to Marshall’s and Kirkland’s! I found so many adorable finishing touches there for so inexpensive. Also, my room is only 10 x 10, so I had to fit a lot in a small amount of space and as you’ll see my bookshelf is more for functionality than styling purposes. (Minus my cowboy boots!)

I hope you enjoyed this bedroom tour. I had a lot of fun taking these and can’t wait to show you my closet…when it’s not a total disaster.

Gingham Girl

DSC03429Two of my summer must haves were a chambray blazer and gingham button down. Picking up both of these was a match made in heaven for casual Friday. The blazer is so light and goes with everything including denim itself. I found it by accident at Marshall’s and was quite excited! I think it will be great to style this season.

I’m also rocking a Gorjana bracelet from my first RocksBox that I received from iFabbo as a 6 month membership gift certificate!  I love the style of this wrap bracelet and I love the color and how well it pairs with my style! RockBox is a jewelry box subscription service for $19/month to try three pieces of curated designer high end jewelry per box. You can keep each box (all three pieces) for up to 60 days or return the box right away for 3 new pieces, but it’s always $19/month! The return shipping is already paid for because they provide  a package to send it back in which is great. Basically you fill out a style profile and that’s how they choose what goes in your box and if you love an item, or two, or all three, you can purchase them at 20% the retail!! Definitely check it out if you like switching up your jewelry like me! This is probably my favorite subscription service I’ve ever tried and definitely be on the look out for future styling of my RocksBox pieces!

*I received the RocksBox 6 Month Membership Gift Certificate via iFabbo for free. I am not being paid or sponsored to promote their box and as always, I only accept and review items that I feel are relavant to my blog’s content.

Royal Blue

DSC03381Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all of my mother readers! (dog moms too!) ;) Yesterday was spent in this flowy royal blue high low with my mom and brothers. We went to brunch in the morning and then just relaxed all day. It was such a good day. This color totally pops on any skin tone and I think it’s so bright and fun for summer. Plus, everything I want to wear right now is this light chiffon material because it is SO freaking hot out now.

I also wanna say thank you to my wonderful Momma who has been a constant support in my life. She is the most selfless, kind, and strong woman I know and if I could become half of the mom, half of the person she is. :)

The Classic Striped Shift

DSC03356I picked up these three winning pieces in the last week. The Olivia + Joy bag is the perfect great staple black leather bag which surprisingly I didn’t have.  The perfect classic staple for any girl’s wardrobe — the navy striped dress. This one is a MUST on sale right now from Banana Republic! The ponte material keeps it form fitting and flattering combined with the elbow length sleeves. But really for me, one of my favorite purchases in a  long time (how often do I say that? haha) are these pointed toe pumps. My goodness, Marshalls you win again. Clearance BCBG light pink patent pumps. These three staples pull together a completely classic year round (in Arizona) look that will never be tired.

Black & White, Fit & Flare

DSC02703

This is going to be a short outfit of the day because my camera was dying, we were running late, and my mom was behind the lens. One of her close friends had her baby shower this past weekend and I was SO excited to get dressed up for it. I actually stalked this dress for 25 minutes while the girl at Marshalls was putting new items on racks and I was scared (of what I don’t know) to go up and pull it off the rack before she put it out. It’s a combination horizontal stripe and vertical striped fit and flare mini dress which is super flattering. The styling options are truly endless for this dress, but I kept it neutral with a chunky black statement necklace and crazy high nude wedges.

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!! :)

Work & Play

work and play

Before I introduce this new feature, I wanted to talk briefly about a contest I entered for American Eagle called the Project Live Your Life to be in their next campaign! I would SUPER appreciate and basically love you forever if you voted for me. It would be such an amazing opportunity for me and my blog. If you would love to help me out, click here and I’ll also have a button on the sidebar soon. :) Today is the first day of a new blog feature called “Work & Play” where I showcase my work outfit and then it’s transition to my “play” outfit. I frequently come home and have to run out somewhere else, but I don’t want to change everything, so I’ll typically be keeping one piece on and making it casual. This post shows a vertical striped chiffon top with a cotton pencil skirt for work and the ankle jeggings for play. And yes, I did do some casual cartwheeling on the very green grass!
