What I Wore Wednesday

Hi everyone! Today I decided to post an outfit since I have not done this in a while! I also haven't worn this shirt in a while so I figured today was the perfect day to wear it!
I purchsed this shirt at Urban Outfitters back in March at school and never found a time to wear it..It needed a tank underneath (so I'm not naked- looking) but didn't think it would work..However, after experimenting today, I saw that I actually do like it with a tank underneath

Urban Outfitters floral tank
White Forever 21 Tank
Urban Outfitter jeans


Sand Colored Cardigan (from my sister's throwaway pile)

I really felt so comfortable and confident in this outfit for some weird reason..I felt the whole outfit screamed "Yes I actually do look fashionable and very comfortable!" Wohoo for comfort!

Crochet Anyone?

I really am loving crochet clothing right now! You can dress it up, down, layered, or as is...I feel like you can create so many different outfits with just one piece of crochet item...While browsing Topshop's website and fantasizing about being able to afford it, I fell back into reality..Although I can not afford it, I definitely can afford to browse..That can't do any harm!...... can't do any harm until I decide I NEED it, and splurge on one of them

Go With Your Gut

So remember back in March when I got a nice big camera for my birthday? Well I actually wanted to get a bag (how unusual- NOT!) but my dad wanted me to get something to spark some passion deep inside of me..I thought maybe deep down, I would love to take pictures and get all artsy but lets face it..I never even used the damn camera! I decided to return it (gotta love Costcos return policy) and get some jewelry instead...Since we can only get store credit back and since my family buys enough food at Costco to feed an army, they asked if I would rather get the money back to spend at a different store and they would use the store credit for food and such..Sounds perfect to me! While browsing on Bloomingdales, I found some really cute jewelry pieces that are making me feel so excited! What do you all think? 

All from Bloomingdales..I personally like the last long, gold chain evil-eye necklace the most!

What I Wore Wednesday

Today I was supposed to have an appointment that happened to be next to our mall so my dad promised me he would finally buy me Toms..I loved these shoes for a pretty long time and I am happy to say I am finally the owner of a new pair! I got them in navy blue and I highly recommend them because they are pretty darn comfortable!
Anyways, I didn't feel like wearing anything too dressed up or new because we all know I don't like wearing my new clothes right away! Weird? nahhh! 
So I decided to wear my new-ish gap skinny jeans along with a grey tank from Forever 21 layered underneath a black cut out t-shirt from Urban Outfitters...I also felt like adding some jewelry to jazz it up so I added a grey beaded bracelet from J.Crew and a necklace from Chicos to my usual, everyday watch and rings

Sorry for the horrible picture quality! Something must be up with my camera on my computer!!
Oh and you should all be oh so proud! I switched up my style a little bit with some new foods (walnuts) and a different exercising routine (swimming....and shopping :) )

Something New

I am a girl that rather go to a diner than a steakhouse....find a great deal at Marshall's than go to Bloomingdales....go to the library rather than buying the new book...I think you get my point..I basically like a good discount along with a nice big, egg white omelet with a baked potato and some good old coffee!!
I also am a girl that does not LOVE change...For example, I usually eat the same thing for breakfast (oatmeal, bananas, raisins, coffee) lunch (pb and banana sand-which) snack (apple and some more CHUNKY peanut butter) dinner (egg-white omelet with toast a baked potato and coffee) and best for last (frozen yogurt with a mixture of cereal, chocolate chips, and cereal) It's not that I freak out if I do experience a situation where change needs to occur, but I also don't go out of my way to change up my routine.
With that said, I think I am going to challenge myself this week..I am going to change up at least one thing in my daily routine whether it be with food, exercising, or just hanging by my pool rather than spending my paycheck once again (woopss!) 

Like I said, I need to try a different route...
Not just.....

Do you all tend to stay with a similar routine everyday or like to be more spontaneous??

Guess What Guess What!?

I finally got those shoes I wanted from Urban Outfitters forever..(forever ever?) hehe
I got them in black and they are super duper comfortable!!!
I also got a pair of high rise black skinny jeans since my last pair I purchased from them got many compliments!!
Oh, and I figured I would walk into Free People and just drool over all the clothes I would love to buy but don't have the money for...and then something happened...I purposely tried a pair of jeans I wish I had but they were $140 dollars...I figured I would just stare at my self for a little and dream of having the money to purchase them...Then the saleslady brought me a pair of wide-leg jeans that they just got in and told me they were cheaper and soooo comfortable! Obviously I tried them on to be nice and she SOLD me!!! 
Pretty much, I am a sucker for Free People...and shopping..Oh welll

Free People Jeans

Free People jeans I wish I could afford

Sooooo....How do you likey the new clothes?

Instead of looking at the clothes for once on Urban Outfitter online, I instead went to the "apartment" section...I love decorating a room and found some awesome stuff on their website..Hello swinging chair in the middle of the room!
I would love to redo my room, yet again, and add some of these amazing pieces!

When decorating a room, do you like it more simple or more out there...I personally love the out there approach..The crazier the better!!

Boutique 9

Anyone hear of this brand? Boutique 9 is an awesome brand that tends to be a little expensive..Luckily, they always sell this brand at discount stores such as Marshalls and Century 21...I got a pair a couple of weeks ago at Marshalls discounted for $40
Sorry I keep talking about things I have purchased recently but I am just so excited about it all! Sorry I'm Not Sorry ha- ha...(anyone hear this phrase before?)
Okay enough with the silliness..Here are some Boutique 9 shoe ideas for the upcoming fall

My Recent Purchase

What do you guys think of these shoes?? Let me know!!

New Day, New Bag

The other day I went to Marshalls and found a Hobo bag on sale for only $69.....It was patent leather with a floral pattern...Although it was ADORABLE and I do did love it, it was most definitely an impulse purchase..Today I went to Century 21 with my sister and found the bag that I was looking for...It was a Lodias bag originally $220 but I got it for only $99...Since this bag was also a great deal, I had to go for it and return the Hobo...I never heard of the brand Lodias but is in fact a real brand! I went on their website when I got home and saw some other awesome bags by this designer so you should all check it out!

What do you all think of this brand/ does anyone else buy on impulse instead of waiting for the right one?!

Too Hot To Handle

This weather is absolutely ridiculous! 100 degrees out!? Are ya kidding me! Despite the weather, you still need some fashion so here it goes. This is what I would wear on a day like today and a LOT of money to spend
Pale Blue Cut Out Sleeveless Shirt Dress- Topshop

RAFFIA Multi Strip Canvas Buckle Sandals- Topshop

What would you wear in weather like today? Perhaps a bathing suit and an ice cold pool?

Back In Time

This title may seem like I am going to reminisce on some old story or something but I am not..Instead I am going to go into the present with a fresh idea on friendship jewelry...While browsing through Seventeen Magazine, yes I am older than 17 and proud to be a Seventeen reader!,  I saw this amazing idea..New friendship necklaces found here.. necklace is so cute and a fresh twist on the "friendship" accessories...You can even easily make it at home using a paper clip, some beads, and a simple chain..I think this necklace is so adorable and a perfect fashion statement. 

What do you all think of this friendship accessory?

A Girl Can Dream

My friend from school recently told me that she became an intern for Lucky Magazine!! How lucky is that!??! ( ha-ha so not funny) Anyways, after living vicariously through her and making her text me constantly of what her position requires and the celebrities she must be meeting, she gave me incredible news! She informed me that they need more interns for August and she gave me the lady's e-mail address...If I was to get this position, I would do the accessories and jewelry with my friend..Imagine, Lucky Magazine, and working with my friend!?!? Beyond amazing!! Hopefully they e-mail me back and ask to meet with me!!! 
A girl can dream can't she!?

If you can work for any magazine, which one would it be?

The Right Color

Hope everyone is having a relaxing day! I was at work and unfortunately pulled a muscle from reaching over for ice cream? Weird, I know
Anyway, here are a pair of shoes from Urban Outfitters that have been in my shopping cart for weeks..I can't decide if I should go for them or not..What do you think? / what color!?

Stack It Up

I guess you can say I love my accessories....

All Jewelry from Free People July Catalogue - I love stacking bracelets and necklaces like in the 2 pictures above...I think there is an edgy and trendy vibe to the look..To me, the best way to pull off the "layered" look is to mix textures and colors...My next mission is to find brighter, bolder colored jewelry!
Who's with me!?
