Outlet Shopping




Blouse-Ann Taylor Factory (similar The Limited Blouse), Jeans-Old Navy (similar Cheap Monday Denim Pants), Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Steve Madden Quilted Crossbody Bag), Sandals-Target (similar Seychelles Gold Sandals)

This navy blouse was another one of my purchases at the Ann Taylor Factory store. It was just $9.99! I live 10 minutes from an outlet mall. With some of the outlet stores, I've noticed that you really get what you pay for...the quality is not as good as the regular store. It's not even worth the discount. But other stores, like the Ann Taylor outlet, the clothes are well made which means you can save a ton of money. 


How do you feel about outlet shopping?

Hairstyles with Head & Shoulders + Sweepstakes!



I was given the opportunity to try out Head & Shoulders Fresh Scent Technology Shampoo and Conditioner in the Green Apple scent. For this line, Head & Shoulders has teamed up with fragrance creators for a water activated fragrance boost. Smell is very important to me when choosing hair products. I want something that will make my hair smell fresh and clean without being overpowering. The Green Apple scent is absolutely heavenly and truly does smell just like a fresh apple. Not only does it smell amazing, but it also leaves you with 100% flake-free hair* (*visible flakes; with regular use). It's the #1 anti-dandruff shampoo used by dermatologists.





I used the Head & Shoulders Shampoo & Conditioner for two different hairstyles. For the first style, after showering I parted my hair down the middle. Then I blow dried it and finished with a flat iron for a sleek look.



For the second style, I put my hair into a low ponytail. Make a hole with the hair above the elastic then flip the ponytail through.






Now for the sweepstakes! Head & Shoulders is giving you the chance to meet Sofia Vergara! Follow @HeadShoulders on Twitter and post a photo of your gorgeous, flake-free hair tagging #PartOfOurFamily #Sweeps and @HeadShoulders. Sweepstakes kicks off Monday, August 18 and will run until September 8. Winner will have the opportunity to meet Sofia at an upcoming Head & Shoulders advertising shoot! Full Sweepstakes rules here: http://clvr.li/hssweeps.

Mix It Mondays: Sleeveless Chambray Shirt




Blouse-Old Navy (similar Boden Sleeveless Shirt), Dress worn as Skirt-Forever 21 (similar Charlotte Russe Polka Dot Skirt for $12.50), Wedges-Nordstrom (similar Bandolino Wedges), Clutch-Target (similar Marc Fisher Clutch)

While I was taking these photos, a man walked by and said "are you trying to get on the cover of Vogue?" I laughed since I didn't know what to say. It's awkward enough taking blog photos on the street without strangers making comments! I'd tell them I'm a fashion blogger, but that usually opens it up for more comments. 

Today for Mix it Mondays, I'm remixing my sleeveless chambray shirt by wearing it over a dress. I've worn it far more than you've seen on the blog since it goes with pretty much everything. Expect to see me wearing it with a cardigan in the fall! (till it's too cold and I switch to my long sleeve chambray).

I last wore it with my lace shorts:

Look What I Got Link Up: Baseball Tee




Tee-H&M via Poshmark (similar Pink Baseball Tee), Necklace-Eliza Jay Charm (similar Acrylic Monogram Necklace), Shorts-American Eagle, Sandals-American Eagle (similar Fergalicious White Sandals), Bag-H&M

I got this cute pink and grey baseball tee on Poshmark. Thanks to a credit, I only paid $4.94! I've been selling my clothes on there (@thetinyheart) and I realize now part of the fun is using the earnings to buy more clothes on there for cheap. This tee was only worn once according to the seller, so it's practically brand new! Score!

Inspired





Tee-Old Navy, Denim Vest-Target (similar Chicnova Denim Vest), Shorts-Rampage, Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers

When I'm running low on outfit inspiration, the first place I head is Pinterest. I often find cute outfits on Pinterest, but I'm missing that one piece that really completes it. Kinda defeats the purpose of being inspired if you have to go shopping! I was looking for more things to wear my Converse sneakers with and found this pin. I love that the outfit is simple and I already had all the items in my closet: a white tee, denim vest, black shorts (swapped for the pants), and the Chucks!

Emerald Green Cardigan + Navy Dress




Dress-Lulu's (similar Boohoo Skater Dress for $20), Cardigan-Ann Taylor Factory (similar August Silk Cardigan), Belt-H&M, Bag-c/o Massi, Sandals-Target (similar Seychelles Gold Sandals)

This weekend I was at the beach as usual. I can't believe it's already the middle of August. I'm soaking up as much summer as I can! Although lately the weather here has been on the cooler side and sadly it feels like fall may come early this year. 

I found this emerald green cardigan on the clearance rack at the Ann Taylor Factory store. It was originally $29.99, reduced to just $12! I plan on wearing it a lot this fall. I paired it with my trusty navy dress which I've remixed over and over. I think navy is even more versatile than a LBD!

Look What I Got: JCrew Factory Jeweled Sweatshirt




JCrew Factory Jeweled Sweatshirt, Pants-H&M Kids, Flats-Gap Kids Outlet (similar Sam & Libby Bow Flats), Bag-H&M (similar Forever 21 White Satchel)

This JCrew Factory jeweled top was one of the things I bought for work. Turns out that my office is actually very casual when it comes to dress code. Many people wear jeans, which I was pleasantly surprised to see. I guess I didn't need to run out and buy new clothes after all...but I think it's always good to dress professional especially when I'm the new employee. I haven't worn jeans just yet since I want to make a good impression!
