chambray shirt and pull over sweatshirt: old navy, jeans: american eagle, shoes: target, necklace: vintage

While pulling this outfit together i realized how dark and gloomy it looked. To lighten it up i added my floral shoes and a beaded necklace. Sometimes it is the simple accessories that can change the mood of an outfit.

clothes, awards, and reunions

I ordered some clothes from old navy and they arrived. This order included the blue gingham shirt and the sandals. 
I love getting new clothes.

No Proof

Monday was another LA adventure.
Erin, Kirsten, and I went to LA to go to the jimmy kimmel taping of the zac brown band.
Because of this, i couldn't take my camera.
This was also the same night as the Lucky One premier.
By the time we got done with the zac brown band performance, the green carpet was being cleaned up and the movie was almost out.
We stood behind the barricade and chatted with the security guard and waited for the theater to be let out.
When it did we spotted zac efron from a distance, ashley tisdale ran right past us as she leaned into her boyfriend to hide from people-umm it didn't work, and some guy from 90210-Matt Lanter. We also saw a huge crowd of people around someone i assume to be Selena Gomez. 
As exciting as that was we chose to not stand around for too long, we were starving and extremely thirsty.
We ate dinner (fyi it was after 9:30) at the hard rock cafe.
After standing for hours it felt so good to sit down and eat.
My back hurt for the next few days...i cant imagine how my body would have hurt if i had worn heels.

So none of that fun stuff got documented, but i was smart enough to take a couple pictures of my outfit before i left for this adventure.

Dress: Target (now in new colors), belt: vintage, shoes: Soda, Necklace: Boutique

Fashion Friday: In the market for...

My wardrobe needs a little revitalizing.

These are some things i would like to add to my closet:
                      ... professional clothes (things i could wear in the workplace)
1. Black Blazer
2. Cute Dress Shirts
3. Slacks/Cropped Dress Pants
4. Dress Shoes

...Spring/Summer Clothes
1. Sandals/Flats

2. Colorful Jewelry

So i figured out what my wardrobe needs...what about you. What items do you need to add to your closet?

Late night outings

What do you do at 9:30p.m. on a thursday night?
Me and Erin drive to L.A. to have an adventure.
Why not drive around los angeles and explore art and take pictures and then drive through fancy neighborhoods and make up stories about the people who live there. Late night adventures are fun. You should have one.

Earrings: Day Star Jewelry (etsy) , Necklace: Handmade, Jacket: Vintage, Dress: Charlotte Russe, Shoes: Candies (years ago)
Peep/Jellybean Centerpiece 

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.
This year was possibly one of my favorites.
It was a relaxed day spent with family and a friend.
My aunt and uncle came over for the day and my friend Erin joined us. 
The day was spent hearing stories, laughing at the pets, and playing ipad games and wii bowling.
I love a day of making great memories.

Fashion Friday: Wear it more than once

Versatility in clothing is so important. When shopping for clothes it's important to choose items that can be worn with so many different things. Here is how i styled one top.

Last night i quickly put together an outfit on polyvore then posted it on pinterest. 
Within an hour it had over 20 repins.
It is a great feeling to know that people like something i "made"-styled/put together.
I was so flattered...i just thought i would share that.

FYI: you can follow me on pinterest to see all of my polyvore outfit stylings.
