Splash of Summer

Hello, loves! Over the holiday weekend I wanted to amp up the sexiness. I definitely did that with this skirt! I was sifting through the clearance racks at Target when I found this baby. Well, it actually found me! As bright as this skirt is it screams – “Look at me! Take me home! Wear me!” I find this to be a dress up alternative to a great sundress. I love wearing sundresses in the summer, but when the occasion calls for something with a little more oomph I find a colored pencil skirt and a printed tube top works nicely. It’s is definitely a sexy summer look. Look through your closet and match up different tube tops with your pencil skirts. A great printed tube top and a solid color pencil skirt really is a beautiful look, or vice versa – a solid tube top and a printed pencil skirt. Add a belt and a great open toe heel in an unexpected color, like I did. Mix and match colors. Take risks and see what combinations of colors really bring the outfit together. I know the trend right now is pencil skirts with crop tops, but for those who aren’t as comfortable with wearing that trend- this is the perfect alternative. I have to say this outfit really has become a quick summer fav. You can’t help but feel gorgeous in this look. Make a splash this summer with color!

My look: Skirt: Target – Mossimo; Tube top: Old Navy – (old); Shoes: Kohl’s – Candies (old) similar style here; Belt: Wet Seal; Studded Clutch: H&M; Cat eye sunnies: Forever 21; Plate necklace: Charlotte Russe (old) similar style here; Ring: Clearance – Forever 21; Wild Thing Lion Bracelet: Forever 21; Lipstick: Wet N Wild – Silk Finish in the shade Fuchsia with Blue Pearl (website color looks nothing like the actual shade I have!); Eyeshadow: Victoria’s Secret – Jet Setter Portable Makeup Kit (green shades).

Boho Chic

Boho ChicHello my lovies! Summer and sundresses go together like a wink and a smile.  You just can’t have summer without lots and lots of sundresses! They are comfortable and oh so pretty. This sundress is one of my favies. I just love the patterns and colors throughout.  I find myself reaching for this sundress a lot during the summer months because of its boho vibe. It makes me feel like putting flowers in my hair and running through open fields yelling, “Give peace a chance!” while holding up the peace sign. I bought this sundress a few years back and still get excited to wear it like it’s a brand new find. I paired my sundress with my more unique pieces of jewelry to give it that special touch.  Just give me a summer day and a pretty sundress and I’m a happy girl!

My outfit: Sundress and handbag: Kohl’s (old); Earrings and sandals: Target (old); Bangle bracelets and gold circle ring: Forever 21; Turquoise ring: Charlotte Russe (old);  Thumb ring: Local shop – Rocks and Runes; Sunnies: Big Lots

Pretty as a Picture

Pretty as a PictureHello, darlings!  Hope everyone had a marvelous Memorial Day weekend! I wore this little number on Saturday to kick off the weekend. I bought this skirt on clearance almost 2 years ago and I am just now wearing it! I don ‘t know what took me so long! I was drawn to the cream color instantly when I saw it hanging on the rack, and then I was taken by surprise to see that the print of the skirt was snakeskin. I instantly had to have it! It’s girly with a fun edge. One of the best things about this cream color skirt is you can pair it with any bright color blouse and it will look amazing! I wanted to go more simple with jewelry and chose earrings and bangles only – to keep focus on the outfit itself. And since I was already wearing snakeskin I thought I should add some leopard print too! Why not, right?  So these heels fit the bill! Lastly, I added a Steve Madden handbag and a pair of oversized sunnies to complete my look.

My outfit: Blouse: Forever 21; Skirt: Target (old – clearance); Shoes: Forever 21; Handbag: Steve Madden (old – gift); Bangles: Forever 21; Earrings: Wet Seal (clearance); Watch: vintage Bulova; Sunnies: Big Lots; Lipstick: Sephora Rouge Shine (in the shade Flashy); Eyeshadow: L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR( in the color Endless Sea); Nails: Wet n Wild Fast Dry (in the color Sagreena the Teenage Witch) and Nars shimmer (in the color Purple Rain).

My Sunday Style

IMG_1798Hello, darlings! Hope you are having a beautiful Sunday.  Just a quick post on today’s outfit.  I always reach for something yellow when I want to feel extra cheerful and sunshiny.  Yellow is a happy color. I paired a yellow polka dot cardigan with denim polka dot skinnies.  Usually you don’t want to wear the same pattern from head to toe, but this combo actually works well together! I added a vintage locket (with a modern spin), pearl stud earrings, and of course, my staple piece – my vintage bulova watch. I wore my blue canvas shoes (since I was going to be walking a lot) and not only are they super comfy, but they are super cute!  To complete my vintage style I wore an oversized pair of sunnies.

My Sunday style – Cardigan: Forever 21 (on clearance); white cami: Target (you can get it here); skinnies: Forever 21 (you can get it here); canvas shoes: Target (you can get it here); Locket: Out of the Blue (you can check out her jewelry here). watch: vintage bulova; pearl earrings: Kohl’s (old); sunnies: Big Lots (Seriously! You can get them here.  Cheap, but cute).
