BLACK & WHITE






Top: Francesca's (sold out) | Skirt: Love Culture | Belt: J Crew | Shoes: old (similar here) | Clutch: old from Macy's

Hi lovelies!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far.  I went to the mall today with a friend.  We pretty much got there when it first opened and literally shopped 'til we dropped.  I went into a bunch of stores that I normally do not go into and found some really great things!  Among one of the items I found was the skirt I am wearing in today's post.  It is from this new store called Love Culture which is pretty much like a Forever 21.  The prices are really reasonable and they have some pretty stylish items.

I have been seriously busy the past few days and as a result have not had much time for blogging.  I will respond to all your wonderful comments soon!  I really appreciate them and read each and every one.

Thanks for reading!  xoxo

Hi lovelies!  Hope you're having a great week so far.  You've heard me talk about how much I love Fourth of July and getting in the patriotic spirit.  This year is no exception of course.  I think I went a bit overboard gearing up for fireworks that I now have too many options on what to wear.  So this is where I need your help!  Please leave a comment and let me know which outfit you like best and I will reveal the outfit I end up wearing in a future post.

Thanks for reading!  xoxo

IN THE CLEAR

Hello lovelies!  Hope you had a fantastic first weekend of summer!  I am wearing my all time favorite color in today's post.  There is just something about yellow that makes me happy.  Also loving my new lucite clutch I got recently.  I really enjoy the transparent look and it went perfectly with my Cheap Monday lucite cuff.  My photographer couldn't understand the appeal and kept calling it a clear plastic box which I thought was funny.  What are your thoughts on this trend?

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week!  xoxo

DAY TO NIGHT








Dress: BCBGMaxazria (old) | Cardigan: The Limited (similar here) | Shoes: Aldo (similar in blue) | Purse: Louis Vuitton | Bracelets: ICB Designs, J Crew | Necklace: Vicenza (sold out)

Happy Thursday lovelies!  One more day until the weekend!  Hope your week has been going well.  I often meet friends after work for dinner.  I never feel like wearing my work clothes after work because it is always too professional and does not fit the more relaxed dinner environment.  So to solve this problem, I started wearing dresses that I can just throw a cardigan or blazer over to make it more professional and appropriate for work but take off the cardigan or blazer when it's time for dinner.  This way, I don't feel like I'm still at work.  I find colored heels to be a nice way to spice up an outfit without being too over the top especially if you work in a conservative workplace like I do.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!  xoxo

MARDI GRAS IN JUNE









Blouse: BCBGMaxazria (old) | Jeans: Paige (on sale here) | Shoes: Aldo (similar here) | Purse: Chanel | Bracele: ICB Designs

Hi lovelies!  Happy Monday!  I am sharing one of my favorite tops of all time today.  I love keyholes, envelope backs, open backs, basically any style that shows some skin in the back so when I saw this BCBG top, I knew it was a match made in heaven.  I call it my Mardi Gras top because of the colors.  I think it's kind of a funky combination but they come nicely together.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week!  xoxo

FLAG DAY











Dress: Alternative Apparel | Top: Alternative Apparel (on sale) | Purse: Coach

Hello lovelies!  Are you ready for the weekend?  I know I am!  Tomorrow is going to be sunny (finally) and my friend invited me to the pool.  It will be a nice opportunity to get some color on my skin.  I didn't realize how pale I was until I started looking at photos of myself.

Today was flag day here in the States (technically yesterday since it is already Saturday now).  I thought I'd get in the spirit by dressing up in this flag print ensemble.  I love any opportunity to wear American flag inspired looks (which is pretty much limited to Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Fourth of July - if you think of any more, please let me know).

Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend!  xoxo
