Mix It Mondays: Leopard Scarf



Shirt-Target (similar Old Navy Chambray Shirt), Scarf-Amazon (similar Dorothy Perkins Leopard Scarf for $11), Kelly Wynne Bag, Pants-H&M, Hunter Kids Rainboots

It rained the entire weekend, which was a really good excuse to be lazy. Friday night we rented the Wolf of Wall Street. I liked it, but it really didn't need to be three hours long. Aside from doing some errands, I spent most of Saturday and Sunday parked on the couch. Not a bad thing, I think!

Today I'm remixing my leopard print scarf. I paired it here with my trusty chambray shirt and Hunter rain boots for a rainy day outfit. One of my other favorite ways I've worn it is with my emerald green sweater.

Spring Trend: Pastels

H&M Jersey Dress for $24.95//Olivia + Joy Bag//Forever 21 Bracelet for $2.99//Forever 21 Cutout Flats

I think the pastel trend for spring is so soft and pretty! It's a nice departure from the blinding neons of last year. I paired this mint dress with a blush bag and cutout flats (another big trend this season). I could see myself wearing this to work, a weekend brunch, or a casual date. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Looks like it's going to be a rainy one here but I'm just thankful it isn't snow.

Denim Jacket + Mint Jeans



Jacket-Old Navy (similar Merona Denim Jacket), Tee-Express (similar Old Navy Striped Tee for $8), Scarf-c/o FRAAS (similar Betsey Johnson Scarf), Jeans-Target (similar Charlotte Ruse Mint Jeans), Booties-Target (similar Crown Vintage Tabitha Booties)

Random Wednesday Thoughts:

1. Now that winter is "officially" over, the stats are in...Central Jersey, where I live, got approximately 56.2 inches of snow this winter, ranking it as the 6th snowiest on record. (according to this article). Not the worst, but bad enough!

2. I can't believe How I Met Your Mother has just one episode left! It seems like there's still so many unanswered questions and I really hope everything gets answered in the finale.

3. If this outfit looks familiar, it's because you got a sneak peek of it a while back on Instagram! I wore it on a warmer day when only a denim jacket was necessary. Here's hoping I can put away my parka for good!

Spring Trend: Crop Tops


Although it's snowing today (yes, it's the winter that just won't quit, even when the calendar says otherwise), I'm looking forward to wearing those spring clothes eventually. I've got the crop top trend on my mind. I haven't taken the plunge into buying one just yet, so it's fun to "try" it out with a collage. The crop top trend seems to work well paired with a high waisted skater skirt, like this floral print one. I prefer when just a hint of skin is showing, so you're not too exposed.

Will I take the plunge and wear one? I'm not sure. On the one hand, I feel like I might be too old for it (when I see it on teens I want to tell them to change!). But on the other hand, In Style is giving the stamp of approval, which is good enough for me.


What are your thoughts on the crop top? Would you wear one?

Mix It Mondays: Polka Dot Tee




Tee-Forever 21 (similar French Connection Polka Dot Tee,  Decree Military Vest for $14.99,  Nameplate Necklace-ONecklace.com, Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Boots-Naturalizer, Bag-Botkier (similar BCBGeneration Satchel)

Oh Monday, here you are again. I had a quiet weekend...rented American Hustle, which I really enjoyed. It was worth it just for the 70s fashion alone! (Bradley Cooper jeri-curl!).  I also bought a set of clear drawers to organize my purses. Now I can actually find what I'm looking for instead of digging through a mess. The spring has motivated me to start organizing a bit more. Next up I have to tackle my shoes, but I'll have to wait till I can put away my boots. 

Today for Mix It Mondays I'm remixing my polka dot tee. One of my other favorite ways I've worn it was with my faux leather skirt.

High Five For Friday



1. I'm loving my new gold intial bracelet! I think it's a great addition to any arm party.


2.  I snapped this photo of the moon as the sun was setting over the ocean last week. It's a nice reminder of how beautiful the Jersey shore is!


3. Eating pizza for Pi Day on March 14. Not like a need an excuse to eat pizza though!


4. Now that The Bachelor is over, I needed another trashy reality show to take it's place. I found it with Online Dating Rituals of the American Male on Bravo. It follows guys on online dating sites from checking out profiles to the actual dates. If you're a reality tv junkie like me, you'll love this!



5. Meet Natalia of Leaving the Corner and Dipping My Toes!

I'm a 30 something transplant from Colombia where most people make safe fashion choices. It was only until I moved here that I decided to experiment with fashion, walk away from my comfort zone, and put myself out there. On this little blog of mine I like to share my progress in finding new styles that work for me and a little about my personal life.

For more photos, follow me on Instagram. Have a great weekend!

Look What I Got: Graphic Tee



Cardigan-Sugar Love Boutique (similar Mango Striped Cardigan), Tee-Juicy Couture (similar Victoria's Secret Graphic Tee), Necklace-Forever 21 (similar Charlotte Russe Rhinestone Necklace for $6), Old Navy Jeans, Flats-Gap Kids (similar Sam & Libby Bow Flats), Bag-H&M (similar Dorothy Perkins Satchel)

I've been a bit slow to hop on the graphic tee bandwagon. While I think graphic tees are really cute, I was hesitant to invest in one since I could only wear them on the weekends. Well, it finally dawned on me that I already had this "minibar couture" tee in my closet! I purchased it a bunch of years ago and I'm glad I held onto it. I'm starting to think I should never get rid of anything, since trends always seem to come back into style if you wait long enough. Case in point, overalls. I wore them like crazy in the 7th grade and now I'm seeing them again in Target!

Moo Moos & Mom Jeans



Mossimo Denim Vest (on sale for $12.48!), Tee-Old Navy, Necklace-Brighthouse Baubles, Old Navy Jeans, Flats-Gap Kids (similar Sam & Libby Bow Flats)

I wore this outfit on Saturday when I took a trip to Goodwill. I cleaned out my closet and had a big garbage bag of clothes to donate (don't worry, you can still Shop My Closet for the good stuff!). While I was there, I decided to browse around the store. I always see other bloggers getting such cute thrifted clothes. Nope, not in my Goodwill...nothing but floral moo moos and mom jeans!

Spring Weekend Outfit: The Tee Shirt Dress

Mossimo T Shirt Dress//Old Navy Denim Jacket//Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers//Anchor Tote

I picked up this tee shirt dress at Target over the weekend. It is super soft and soo comfy like pajamas. Since it's still too cold to wear it just yet (it snowed yesterday!), I'm instead dreaming up all the ways I can wear it. I think it would be really cute on the weekend with a denim jacket and some white Chucks. Hopefully soon you'll get to see me wear it!
