Hot Pink + Gingham

I will be heading to the Texas Style Council in Austin on Friday where I will finally get to meet one of my bestie blog buds, Meghan of Everday Fashion and Finance! I am beyond excited since this is my first ever blogger event. Meghan and I also have plans to do some serious shopping over at the San Marcos Outlets where they have Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Prada, and J.Crew just to name a few...eek!! With that being said, I have been running lots of errands in preparation for my trip so I decided to throw on something casual and comfy to get the job done.

On another note, I am being featured over at Shop at Home which is an awesome site for coupons and promo codes. You can check out my feature here!

How We Wear: Polka Dot Skirts

Today, I have teamed up with Renee of Style With A Story and Meghan of Everyday Fashion and Finance to share with you how we wear Polka Dot Skirts. It is no secret that we love polka dots which made this skirt a must have item for each of us, and surprisingly enough it has proven to be quite versatile. Not only are we sharing how we each styled this skirt, but you can also check out this skirt styled three ways here!


I love how Renee paired her skirt with a chartreuse sweater and fun leopard accessories, this would be a perfect outfit for early fall too! Meghan and I both chose a white bow belt to accessorize our looks. Great minds think alike! To see more of Renee or Meghan's looks, head on over to their blogs.

Friday Finds: Blazers

Happy Friday! Today is all about blazers. I know for most of us it is still way too hot to wear blazers, but I wanted to get a jump start on my fall shopping this year. I surprisingly only had two blazers hanging in my closet prior to last week when I purchased this lightweight boyfriend blazer. So needless to say, it was time for me to jump on the blazer bandwagon since they are such great staple items for fall and winter. Of course solid color blazers are a classic option, but I also like the idea of mixing in some prints such as leopard or stripes. You don't have to break the bank to find the perfect blazer although some can be quite pricey. Check out some options at every price point below.

Would you wear any of the blazers above?

I also love that it adds just the right amount of sparkle too! I honestly can't say enough about Gigglosophy...Tanya is wonderful to work with and not only are her items affordable and durable, they also ship quick! I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Cobalt + Coral

Happy Monday! The last few days have flown by. We celebrated our pup, Swayze's sixth birthday which doesn't seem possible since I still remember the day I picked her out like it was yesterday. She and Dexter enjoyed some special treats from Three Dog Bakery and had fun playing with her new toys. Anyway, I decided to carry by Royal Addiction clutch to church which just so happens to match my new tassel bracelet perfectly. I guess you could say I've been on a bit of a blue kick lately!

Friday Finds: 15 Under $15

It has been a little over a month since I did my first fifteen under $15 post so I figured it was time to share another one. This time around I decided to find items that I could wear for the remainder of the summer, but that will also easily transition into the fall and winter months. I don't know about you, but I am loving the black and white trend for winter with pops of teal. Everything you see below is less than $15 which is nice for the budget! And if you missed out on the J.Crew Factory polka dot shift dress (which I recently found on final sale) this is your chance to snag a great look for less, only in black and white.

Friday Finds: 15 Under $15

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15

Which of these items would you purchase?

Dinner and a Movie

I don't know about you, but I always tend to get cold in restaurants and movie theaters. With that being said, I decided to throw on a pair of my favorite jeans with this black and white sleeveless top to go to dinner and a movie with the hubby. A new movie theater opened up close by that has balcony seats with comfy recliners so we took full advantage and even had dinner while enjoying our movie! The only way it could be any better is if you could pause the movie for restroom breaks, which is why I love the Run Pee app. It tells you the best times to run to the restroom during a movie without missing anything, plus it will tell if you there is a feature at the end of the movie you should stay for. Definitely worth the 99 cents!

Get the Look: 
Top: Forever 21 | Denim: Loft (option) | Heels: Urban Outfitters | Clutch: Tory Burch | Sunglasses: Anthropologie | Bracelet: Very Jane (option) | Earrings: J.Crew Factory

Have you used the Run Pee app before?
