Dressy Romper


Charlotte Russe Romper (only $28.99!), Express Pointed Toe Pump, Blu Bijoux Lavender Bracelet, Kate Spade Day Tripper Earrings, Style & Co Envelope Clutch

Since it's still been feeling more like winter than spring, the best I can do right now is dream about warm weather outfits. This season I really want to get a dressy romper since all the ones I have now are more casual. Rompers are a nice alternative to dresses and I always feel more comfy in them (no worrying about it on a windy day!). This lavender romper seems like a great transition piece since it has long sleeves. I paired it with nude pumps, a white clutch, and lavender jewelery to tie it all together.

Look What I Got: Loft Jeans




Top-JCrew Factory (similar Ella Moss Jewel Tee), Jeans-Loft Outlet (similar Loft Skinny Ankle Zip Jeans), Flats-Gap Kids (similar Pretty Ballerinas Ballet Flats)

Last week on the blog I shared my thoughts on outlet pricing. These jeans from the Loft outlet were marked $69.99 and were 60% off, marking them down to $28. They may not be the bargain of the century, but I bought them because it can be hard to find jeans that fit me well. They were from Loft's petite section and this ankle length is perfect on me. Finding jeans that don't need alterations are always a major win!

Ear Jackets Under $20

Top Row: Dorothy Perkins Silver and Rhinestone Ear Jackets ($11), Aqua Sara Ear Jackets ($18)
Bottom Row: Charlotte Russe Ear Jackets ($6), Aqua Padma Baguette Ear Jackets ($17.60)


I think the ear jacket trend is so fun! It's a way to dress up your ears and add a little something special to your look. Like most trendy items, I don't want to spend a lot of money in case they're only around for one season. These ear jackets are all less than 20 bucks, so you can get in on the trend without breaking the bank. I just purchased this Forever 21 fan pair, which was only $4.90!

Mix It Mondays: Blue Gingham Shirt




Jacket-Old Navy (similar Forever 21 Utility Jacket), Shirt-H&M (similar Forever 21 Gingham Shirt), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Bag-Forever Tiff Couture, Boots-Nordstorm (similar Steve Madden Intyce Boots)

Hard to believe, but we had another snowstorm on Friday. Just when I think the snow is gone for good, we get another round. I'm beginning to think it'll snow in April. Luckily on Saturday, the sun melted it away. Good riddance!

Despite the weather, I'm determined to bring out some of my spring pieces like this blue gingham shirt. I'm remixing it today with a utility jacket. I previously wore it with a red boyfriend cardigan and Chucks

Top-Mossimo (similar I Heart Ronson Blouse), Necklace-Forever 21 (similar Forever 21 Filagree Heart Pendant for $4.80), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Ankle Boots-Target (similar Modcloth Ankle Boots), Clutch-Target (similar Apt. 9 Envelope Clutch)

Thankfully we've had a little taste of Spring lately. Before we get another round of snow tomorrow, I wanted to put on something bright and cheerful. I decided to wear this heart print blouse since it's colorful and puts me in a good mood when I wear it.

Utility Vest + Grey Sweater




Mossimo V Neck Sweater (on sale for $7.98!), Vest-Decree (similar Charlotte Russe Military Vest), Necklace-Ebay (similar Sole Society Tassel Necklace), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Boots-Nordstrom (similar Steve Madden Intyce Boots)

At the end of each season, I'm usually so sick of my clothes and I get the urge to shop for new pieces. This past weekend I hit up my local outlet mall. I'm convinced all the outlet bargains are psychological. No matter which store you go into, there's nothing being sold at the price marked on the tag... everything is an additional percentage off. It's great, but makes you wonder if you're really getting a deal (not to mention all the calculations you have to do in your head)!

Mix It Mondays: Plaid Shirt





Shirt-A&F (similar Forever 21 Plaid Shirt), Tee-Express (similar Gap Mini Stripe Tee), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Converse Chuck Taylor Kids Sneakers

When it comes to weekend wear, I like to wear something that's cute but comfy at the same time. This plaid shirt with a striped tee underneath fit the bill. I finished the look off with a pair of Chuck Taylors. Over the weekend I rented Birdman...I wanted to see it ever since it won Best Picture at the Oscars. The movie was weird but very good.

I previously wore this plaid shirt with a camel cardigan and ankle boots for a dressier look.

Influenster XO VoxBox


I received the XO VoxBox from Influenster (if you're not already a member, sign up and you can get free products too!). Here's what I got:

Tide Pods Plus Febreze (retail $9.99/26 count) This combines Tide Pods with Febreze in the Botanical Rain scent. Have to be honest, I  normally use laundry detergent that is free of dyes/perfumes since I'm very sensitive to smell.

Colgate Optic White Express White Toothpaste (retail $3.99-$4.99) This toothpaste claims to whiten teeth in 3 days and contains Hydrogen Peroxide. I don't notice a difference so far, but since it says best results are after 4 weeks I'll have to keep using it. 

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built in Whitening Pen (retail $14.99) The toothbrush really doesn't have anything to do with whitening, other than that you can store the pen with it. After brushing your teeth, you apply the gel. I like that it's super easy to use and you don't need to wait after you apply it. This is also something that I have to keep using to see if there's results.

Skinfix Hand Repair Cream (retail $10) After the winter we've been having, my hands could sure use this!

John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment (retail $9.99) This is supposed to transform thin hair into thicker strands. My hair is very thin but frizzy so I'm not sure what this will do to my hair.

John Frieda Beach Blonde Collection (retail $9.99) For those that don't know, Beach Blonde products were discontinued years ago and they finally brought it back! They smell amazing (just like the beach) and the spray creates such beautiful waves. I'm obsessed!

Blanket Scarf + Random Thoughts





Sweater-Mossimo (similar Merona Tunic Sweater for $14.98) , Blanket Scarf-Aliexpress (exact Lola Accessory Boutique Plaid Blanket Scarf), Mossimo Leggings, Boots-Target (similar ModCloth Ankle Boots)

Random Wednesday Thoughts:
  • It has been really hard getting up in the mornings now that it's back to being dark. But I loooove that sunset isn't till 7 PM. That extra hour of light makes a huge difference!
  • I am so confused about the announcement that there will be 2 Bachelorettes next season, Britt and Kaitlyn. Are they competing for the same guys?! Is one getting kicked off? 
  • I'm actually wearing ankle boots, without socks! It is finally warm enough for my feet not to freeze.
  • My new favorite show is Secret and Lies on ABC, a murder mystery that unravels more and more each week. Ryan Phillippe plays the main character and it is mind blowing that he pretty much looks the same as he did in Cruel Intentions.
