Chillin in some Oxfords

This is just one of those very chill outfits for me but that's exactly what I need to now chase my little crawling munchkin around everywhere!  I know that some might not like the tights/leggings look with shorts but i love it, it's so comfy yet different and a little spunky at the same time.  I had been looking for a thick pair of black tights forever so they wouldn't be see through and I finally found this pair at H&M! I had to dig through their pile of tights for 10 minutes to find them but it was well worth it!! You can pair it with oxfords like I did today or even a fun pair of heels (seen here) or boots (like this)! I'm sure you will see all three coming from me because I am loving this look!
 Lots of love to you all and I hope you have a lovely weekend full of fabulous fashion!

Pretend it's fall for a day & Giveaway Winner

Ok gals lets just pretend it's fall for a day because I have been waiting for a couple weeks to show you these sweats and tell you to get them before they are gone.  They were only $20 at H&M and they are so comf!  I can already tell they are going to be one of my favorite pieces for fall! You can pair them with a fun pair of heels, some gorg oxfords or even boots.  As much as I am adoring these amazing summer night laying on a blanket looking at the stars with my two boys I am also getting excited for fall to come around.  Scarves, boots, jackets and many many layers, yeah I'm soo ready for fall!

Rockin Pearls & Ballerina Buns

I decided to bring back my ballerina bun!  It is so sleek and yet still edgy.  I will do a tutorial soon on how I get my ballerina bun so full without a sock or anything else inside!  It's super simple, you probably all do it already haha Anyway, onto the outfit.  I decided to wear my usual band t/rocker look but spice it up with these wonderful pearls, earrings, and gorgeous arm candy from bcharmed.  
I like to mix two looks together that you would normally never think of, like I have said before.

Simplicity with a little Bip & Bop

This outfit is pretty simple and easy but you need that sometimes.  No extras needed and that's just fine!  Bip and Bop's dainty gold accessories are the perfect addition to this outfit.  Her pieces are the kind that you can throw on with just about anything!   
Even though I love the simplicity I also can't wait for fall to layer with this kind of outfits.  This would be perfect to layer with a leather jacket or a denim jacket or whatever else you are thinking and a perfect pair of boots.  Layering is my favorite and I'm getting a little antsy to do it!  You may see it a little sooner than later. Oh and p.s. these bordeaux pants are the perfect color for fall! 

I had to add a couple pics of my boys because they are just looking so handsome and kissable!

Perfectly Imperfect

Okay ladies there are a lot of little details in this outfit that we have to talk about. I went with a simple graphic tee and leather pants so I could go a little crazy with accessories and these shoes!!! I mean come on, look at these shoes....aren't they amazing! PB&J Boutique gifted them to me and I am in love with them! They are the most gorgeous, dainty sandals I have ever put on my foot and they go with absolutely everything.  Everyone needs a pair of nude sandals that are your go to shoes! I usually have a hard time finding sandals that are comfortable but you still feel a little more dressed up than just a flip flop or boring old sandal, this was the perfect fit!!  
I also am very into arm candy as you can tell and love love love bracelets that I can layer with. All these that I have on are the perfect combo! I have a couple new additions from last time which are the the arrow bracelet from Tripp Boutique and the little bracelet with Hanes' name on it from Bip & Bop! Oh and this really fun long charm necklace that I got to customize myself from bcharmed! It was so much fun! Not to mention my new wear everyday initial necklace form Bip & Bop! Let's just say I'm a little obsessed with jewels right now haha and of course for the final touch I needed this arrow ring from Tripp Boutique.  I have had the hardest time finding a ring like this that is still comfortable and I love this one! I can barely tell I am wearing it!  Are you ladies as obsessed with jewelry as I am right now, or is it just me!??

Jewelry Time

For some reason I have always seemed to have a really hard time organizing all my jewelry.  I hated it when it was just in drawers or shoved in a jewelry box.  I want to see it all and really be able to accessorize every outfit perfectly!  I felt like when it was shoved in little places I would wear something for a couple weeks and then just forget about it! and jeez then you end up buying a new thing that looks just like something you already have and that always ticks me right off!
I have been working on this little jewelry corner for a while now and keep finding new little treasures to add to it.  I hope you all enjoy my corner and it inspires you to get creative with your jewels!
