My Very First #ootd Post! East to West

Sweater: TJMaxx (similar)  //  Tank: Forever21 stores only (similar)
Pants: TJMaxx (similar)  //  Boots: GILT (similar)
Necklace: Topshop old (similar , similar)

After several readers requested that I show some outfit posts, I recruited my boyfriend for photos and whaala, here it is! I hope you guys like!

I honestly wish some of you could have seen me try to pose though...freaking hilarious. I'm a big goofball so posing seriously was nearly impossible. That's why we have one photo today. x)

This was the first time I wore this tank top from Forever21. It was around $13 and I honestly couldn't leave it on the rack. It fits wonderfully and the graphic on it is low enough for it to work with a statement necklace (which we know I'm all for)! The other items in my outfit were from places like TJMaxx and Gilt so they probably aren't available anymore. But no worries! I've listed some similar styles if you're in love with something.

While I'm here, have any of you seen this new earring back trend going around? So rebellious and chic! I am dying to find some! Here's a really expensive example.

Liebster Blog Award!

Great news! I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Roxy from January Blonde! Thanks so much Roxy!



I had no idea what I had even been awarded yet and I was jumping up and down. Hey...it's my first blog award. I think I'm allowed to go a little crazy! For those like me who needed a quick summary...the Liebster award is an online award given from one blogger to another. It's a great way to promote and put the spotlight onto new and up and coming blogs.

The Rules:

1) You must link back to the person who awarded you.

2) You must answer the 11 questions given by the nominee before you

3) You pick nominees with under 200 followers (I  did some with a little more cuz I love them so much) to answer your questions

4) You cannot nominate the person who nominated you

5) You must notify your nominees that they have been nominated by you


Questions for Me:

1) What's your favorite thing to blog about?
Jewelry! Especially statement pieces. I have a personal obsession (no joke!) with jewelry so I'm pretty sure that's where it comes from :) 

2) What inspired you to start writing a blog?
I grew up in an area where fashion and style is pretty important...and it shows. I remember being so upset in middle school because I was one of the only girls that didn't have a $300 Tiffany necklace. Middle school! But growing up I realized that "real" style doesn't have to have a high price tag....it's about wearing what you love, and knowing what to shop for and when to shop for it. Sure, the giant price tag is important to some. But not to me. I want to pass that knowledge along to as many people as I can. 

3) What is one item of clothing you couldn't live without? 
My sweatpants with the fleecy interior. I know, it sounds awful coming from a fashion blogger! But some days you really need your pair of comfy sweats. 

4) What is on your summer wishlist?
A grungy graphic tank top, pom pom shorts, and a floppy felt hat.

Warm Pastels for Spring!


1) Top - Modcloth $37.99  //  2) Wedges - Modcloth $39.99
3) Earrings - Modcloth $14.99  //  4) Purse - Accessorize- $9.00

Happy Spring everyone! It might not seem like it where a lot of us live, but soon it will be a time to wear big flowy skirts and sandals! So to hopefully get the warm weather on it's way a little quicker...today's post is all about pastels!
Pastels are trending right now thanks to New York Fashion Week. The colors go together stunningly, but if you are a little nervous about trying this trend out, start with one large pastel color paired with many neutrals. Think a robin's egg dress with grey tights, black shoes, and a striped blazer. 

If you need some inspiration for pastel outfits, check out the latest board on my Pinterest for ideas. I'll be updating it frequently for you!

In other news, I want to give a big thanks to Rathana from FabFashionaire for choosing me as a Fashionaire of the Week! I highly suggest you guys check out her site if you have a chance...she has some great outfit ideas! And as always, thank you so much to all of my new followers! You're the best :)

Have a great week everyone!

Spring is when we buy boots! (Say what?)

Hey guys!

I saw a flower today...Spring is almost here! Are any of you as happy as I am right now? Because I'm pretty happy! The first time I thought I saw one it turned out to be a candy wrapper...

Today's post is...shh... a shopping tip between you and me :). In the Spring, stores want to get rid of their winter and fall shoe inventory. It makes sense...no one wants to wear boots in 90 degree weather! So if you've been drooling over a pair of boots all winter long from a really big brand...guess what? Now is the time to get it! Get the high end leather, buckles and accents you crave for a price that won't hurt your savings.

Here are some high brand boots that are have great discounts right now! I have a bunch more below as well for you to browse through. I just bought a pair of Steve Madden Partenon boots for something like $34 the other day at Lord & Taylor. Normally $100! I almost fainted when I saw that price. 






Let me know if you get any great deals on winter boots! I'd love to hear! Sorry to sound like the biggest broken record ever but thank you so much to all of my new followers! It means a lot to me! Especially the comments I've been getting lately! Thanks for your wonderful comments guys!

Have a great weekend!

Florals & Daisies Gone Grunge!

Hey guys! I'm alive!! Last wk was midterms and projects galore so I had no time to post. :(

Today's post is all about floral prints! Have any of you noticed that every Spring florals become a fashion trend? It makes sense but isn't it kind of creepy? When I'm old and raggity I'll probably still be wearing florals in the Spring. And yes, I plan on being a fashionable old lady..even if I'm the only one who thinks it :) What about you? Are you going to be the old lady smacking bad guys with your Chanel bag?

But what I really love about this Spring's florals is that they've given them a grungy edge. Perfect for festival fashion...especially if any of you are lucky enough to go to Coachella! So here are some of my all time favorites. And if you don't like any of my favorites...I have a lot more below for you to browse through.



 
As always...thank you again to all of my amazing followers...I have 20 now on Bloglovin' and I really can't believe it! It means so much! Feel free to leave a comment below if any of you have suggestions for future posts! I'd love to hear!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend...and if you're lucky...Spring Break! Get that sun if you have the chance! :)
