Two Things...

I finally recreated the hairstyle I was in love with on Pinterest! I washed my hair the night before to give it more body, then divided it into three sections and rolled them up into little buns and secured them all with bobby pins. I kindda felt like Heidi all day at work but a chic looking Heidi!

My mother-in-law also got us the awesome potted tropical hibiscus that I am standing next to in all my pics. I go outside and for a brief moment feel like I am in Hawaii...I love it! Happy HUMP DAY.

The Chain Gang

When I originally bought this dress I thought I would be using it as a bathing suit cover up this summer but it turns out I can wear it to the office as well. I wanted to "toughen" up the dress and did so by piling on multiple necklaces and wearing my pointiest heels and by pointy I mean, if I kick you...it's gonna hurt.

I bought these Nine West heels for just $29.99 at my local Marti & Liz shoe store (holla)! When I saw them on the rack I ran over to them and then started whizzing around the store with them on. That store brings me such happiness which is why I pop in about once a week to see all the new merchandise. I wish I could live in there....my inner shopaholic rather likes that idea.

Easter Colors

I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter! I actually wore this outfit on Friday night when I attended an "Oysters and Beer Birthday" but I was rocking baby blue and yellow so I decided to use my Easter basket as a prop.

We went to lunch yesterday with hubs entire family and I was more dressed up than this outfit but running behind so no pictures were taken, sorry about that! I didn't eat one single piece of candy all day yesterday...(if you can believe it) BUT I did have a slice of caramel cake so I think me and all the kiddos in the world are even.

Belted Or Not??

I love all the slouchy, laid back styles I have been seeing lately like here and here. My problem is I always feel the strongest urge to wear a belt to feel more put together and give my waist a more defined shape.

I couldn't resist adding a belt to the flowy top I wore today but I posted both pictures below. You be the judge!

Mustard and Navy Blue

A couple of days ago I stumbled across a picture of Miss Olivia Palermo, one of my favorite fashion idols. I loved her navy blue and mustard color combo and pinned the picture to remind myself I wanted to copy her style for work.

While I don't have the exact pieces that Olivia has, I had some similar stuff that I could put together from my closet. I think the overall look turned out pretty cute!

I have been racking my brain since I ordered this jacket to find ways to wear it but keep coming up short for some reason. I have been trying it on almost on a daily basis and today finally bit the bullet and walked out the door with it on. You wouldn't think that a black and white striped jacket would be that hard to style but I think the fit is kindda off and that's why I am not that into it.

Side note-thanks to Pinterest I have now founds tons of inspiration for my jacket so stay tuned for more creative ways for me to wear this in the near future!

Sunday Was A Good Day!

Have you ever just had a really fun day...yesterday was one of those unexpected super fun days for me. I LOVE those days!

I started out by helping host a bridal shower for one of my good friends and we celebrated with mimosas. Then, a couple of us decided to go sit out on the patio at Wild Wing Cafe and it was so beautiful outside...not a cloud in the sky. We had dinner and one of my favorite singers performed while we all drank voodoo buckets (I have no clue what was in those things). Perfect carefree day with good friends and not a worry in the world. It was a fabulous way to end the weekend!
