Happy Hour Style

Depending on where my friends and I go for happy hour determines how I dress for the occasion. If we go somewhere nice, I dress in a sundress and heels but this past weekend we went to a sports bar so jeans were the way to go.

Bauble Necklace Goes Itty Bitty!

Let's face it...the J. Crew bubble necklace has become a HUGE trend but not everyone is happy about the price tag that comes along with it. The stylish necklaces have been popping up everywhere from different boutiques to eBay and the bubble necklace even has it's own Pinterest page with different ways to wear it! 

While I do love following a great trend I also love to be a little bit different which is why I got excited when I saw the Itty Bitty Statement Necklace today on GroopDealz-I immediately purchased one. A smaller scale bubble necklace with the same impact...get one while you still can and be sure to sign up to receive other fabulous deals in the future!

Floral and Chambray

Please tell me I am not the only person that hoards clothes and doesn't wear them right away! I have had this skirt since the beginning of summer and today was the first time I have worn it. I am always waiting for somewhere special so I can wear something new or just the right occasion and I need to get over that mentality and start wearing my stuff.  At least this skirt can be worn into next season with tights, boots and a sweater so I can get more out of it.

Blue and Grey

Every time I wear these grey jeans I feel a baby bit like a wannabe rock star. It could be because of the faded, distressed appearance or the fact that I always wear dark colors with them or it could just totally be my imagination running wild.  Whatever the case may be-I added my leopard print heels and a black and gold cuff and just ran with it!

Hi-Low Dress

I keep adding more hi-low hems into my closet!

 I bought this bright green dress back in May to take on my cruise and never ended up wearing it on the ship. I wanted to be able to get more use out of it so I decided to wear it to work but had to cover up to try and look more professional. Thank goodness I made myself presentable and didn't just roll out of bed because I was reminded when I got to work that it was picture day for our website!

Black, White and Orange

I never thought I would get as much wear out of a single piece of clothing as I have this maxi skirt. I can wear it to work like I did below, out running errands like this post and probably dress it up for date night with a form fitting top and higher heels.
One thing I will say is that I always have to cinch my waist with a belt when wearing said maxi skirt because I tend to lean towards boho, more flowy tops and if I pair the two together without one on my body type...it looks like I am wearing a sack. Helpful tidbit from me to you!
