Raining Polka Dots

 Since Mother Nature is suppose to bring us some rain and snow in the next couple days, I thought this post would please Mother Nature and hopefully you!

Today’s look is screaming polka dots! I paired my wool mini skirt with my tiny polka button up. I first thought I would bring in some color to my outfit with some colored tights, BUT nothing looked as good as adding these dark polka dot tights. It helps bring the eye all the way from top to bottom! Just remember, throw on some pieces that are a little bit more quiet. If your shirt and tights are dancing with patterns, break it up with a simple skirt or some cute shorts. Add a solid colored cardigan, coat, scarf, (or poncho haha) to bring in a little something extra! Play around with what you have in your closet. Don’t be afraid of patterns! I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone. 🙂

I kept the color palette simple. Greens, greys, and whites. Oh, and cant forget that little pop of pink on my lips!

Craving That Camo

So… I purchased this cute C A M O dress a while ago. I was so excited to wear it! I walk into work and got made fun of THEE WHOLE day! They said that I shouldn’t be wearing my night-gown to work. 🙂 Yes, the guys in the back like to tease us girls, but to be honest, I hadn’t pulled that dress out of my closet until now! I am so happy I got the guts to wear it again, because I really love it!

 It is a very simple look. No layering. No crazy pieces. Just one fun print with some additional colored yet quiet pieces to please the eye. I would probably say to most of you to put those tall wedge booties on with a dress like this. I did try it with some taller shoes and it looked super cute! It definitely dressed it up. I do have to admit…I wanted to wear it to church, BUT if I kept those taller shoes on, it made the dress look a little too short! 🙂  So, I stuck with the flat booties and took the more casual look with me to church!

I feel like you could go with any color tights with this dress. I stuck to my darker “CAMO” colors and then added some neutral shoes to give my outfit some dimension. Also, it would have been fun to add a crazy bright lip color to spice it up a little bit! It was such a beautiful and S U N N Y day when we did this shoot, so I  couldn’t resist throwing on my favorite shades from JCrew Factory!

Ladies and Gents, don’t be afraid to wear something because you are nervous of what people will think or say! How you dress is the most exciting and fun way to express yourself! You are beautiful. Never ever forget it!

Kimono Lovin

 So, a lady walked into my work and I was obsessing over her kimono she was wearing! After about ten minutes of just staring at it, I went and asked her where she got it. She responded and said “Nordstrom.” In my head I was like DANG IT! I probably won’t be able to afford it. The next day I am doing a little shopping and totally saw THEE E X A C T kimono. Nope, I wasn’t at Nordstrom, I was at Forever 21! SHE TOTALLY LIED! Ladies…don’t be afraid to say you shop at Forever 21. They have some amazing pieces!

This shoot was super fun! I am loving this B R I G H T kimono. You can wear it in the summer. You can wear it in the winter. What is better then having something in your closet that you can wear year round?! In the past couple weeks I have seen kimono pieces on quite a few blogs.This is a piece that you are going to see more and more! Just you wait.

Pair one of your fun printed pants with a graphic T and… VOILA! You are wearing one of my favorite outfits! You can’t go wrong with pairing some of your crazy pants with a graphic T that is more on the neutral side. (Like I have done in past posts) Once again I like to think, “What else can I add to this outfit to make it look like it’s at its fullest potential?” Of course, you can dress it up a little bit by adding shoes that gives you a little bit of height. I always like to add some sort of shoe that will elongate my body, you know, shoes that will make my legs look longer and thinner!  What girl doesn’t love that? I also added a baseball cap. I’m loving this hat! Half denim and half leather. How cool?! I am really loving the “adding a baseball hat trend”  to any of your wardrobe choices. Whether your outfit is casual chic or high-end couture, I am seeing this trend everywhere!

“ADIOS” to the weekend

A D I O S to such a fun weekend! I can’t believe it’s already over. I had such a fun time yesterday shooting some things for the blog with one of my best friends! She will soon have her blog up. She is a MUST USE for any of your photography or videography needs. She is awesome! Contact me if you want her information.

My “ADIOS” outfit is a mix of comfy casual with a few pieces to dress it up a little! There is nothing better than wearing something you don’t have to suck in your belly all night! 😉 I know everyone LOVES a comfy outfit that they still feel cute in. There is nothing wrong with paring a baggy tank with some dark denim, tall booties, and a straight-cut jacket. Now, just put a little curl in your hair and you’ve made that baggy gym tank look worthy for a night out!

Yes, it’s monday, but I promise I was awake when I put this outfit together! You can never go wrong with mixing prints these days. Since my pants are so crazy and bold, I decided to go with a pattern on top that is little bit more calm. Of course I STILL thought my outfit was missing something. You can always add a few accessories to make your outfit feel complete! If you haven’t been able to tell from my last few posts, I L. O. V. E.  to add a hat to make my outfit have a little bit more spunk. 🙂 Another way to add a little somethin-somethin is your SHOE choice! I kept it simple with a wedge bootie, but made sure my shoe added a little bit of color to my somewhat n e u t r a l i z e d outfit.  Oh man, when I bought this long sweater, I didn’t get the reaction I thought I would get! I totally think it is such a great piece to add if your outfit needs a little touch of uniqueness! I couldn’t find the link, but it is from H&M. I must say, IM IN LOVE WITH IT!
