Outfit Post: LBD

Everyone needs a little black dress in their wardrobe. Something you can dress up or down and wear for any occasion. This dress is from Street Chic and is a perfect transition piece for any season. With the billowy 3/4 sleeves it is warm enough for fall and pop on a pair of tights for winter. This is a little more dressed up then most of my outfits but if you wanted to dress it down a bit you could swap out the sandals for a more casual riding boot + knee socks, and trade the chic skull scarf for a chunky knit one. Just a thought!:)

Outfit Post: Wrapped Up

Hi babes! Today I am so excited to tell you about Vanessa the owner of Pineapple Wigs. She has started an amazing goal to raise awareness for breast cancer. She started the "Bethy" bracelet in honor of her sister-in-law's mother who lost her life due to lung cancer. Let me tell you guys, this girl is so inspiring and I get excited and pumped to help make a difference just talking to her! Vanessa's main goal is to raise at least $5,000 to donate to The Circle of Hope during the month of October. Each adorable bracelet can be purchased through her email or by phone.

For every 50 bracelets sold the names from those orders will go into a drawing to win a gorgeous piece of jewelry! If someone orders more than one "Bethy" their name will go in as many times per bracelet quantity they order. Follow @pineapplewigs and repost the giveaway photo with the hashtag #bethybracelet and #blingforacause. Seriously, this is an amazing way to raise awareness for breast cancer and although October is breast cancer awareness month, these bad boys can be worn all year long! I know I will be sporting mine 24/7!

Outfit Post: Rock On

Besides sharing photos and connecting with friends, Instagram is a great way to purchase items. I have found some of the best shops/vintage shops on Instagram. I just bought this vintage ACDC shirt from Reck&Roll Vintage and couldn't wait to wear it! I paired it perfectly with my Remy The Store faux leather Symmetry Skirt.

Outfit Post: Fall Colors

With yesterday being the first official day of fall, I was expecting to go outside and still feel the 100+ degree Arizona heat. To my surprise I was wrong! It was so amazing outside, it was almost chilly last night! I couldn't wait to wear my favorite grandpa cardi over this Riley Clay Designs maxi. Here is how I styled it today.

I came home from work today which by the way, all the girls I taught today told me I had bags under my eyes...they said their mom's tell them that means you need to sleep more...thank you for that girls. Anyways I came home to an amazing package from Raptor Jewelry and I had to pop on all the jewels right away. I can't get enough. All her pieces are so ornate and exactly my style. Just a warning in advance you will be seeing all these pieces ALL THE TIME from now on. Love them so much. Check out her site {here} asap:)

Outfit Post: Primary Colors

When I think of primary colors I automatically pictures crayons {the original pack of 8 colors, not the jumbo 50+ pack with every color you can imagine}. I used to think that primary colors were always associated with being very childish, but in this case varying the shades can make a world of difference. Pairing this adorable headband by Monroe + Harlow, Paint The Town Me tassel, Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel and blue cowboy boots changed up the original yellow, red and blue to something more unique. I really love how the camo jacket  and scarf on my purse tied the whole look together. I am loving pairing more bohemian flowy pieces with structured more classic pieces. {more of that next week}.

I hope all of you have a great Friday night!! See you soon:)

Outfit Post: New Staple

I was thrilled when I got this gorgeous skirt in the mail {along with other adorable goodies} from Remy The Store. Although summer is coming to an end, this black lace, slightly high-low skirt will definitely be taken into the fall and winter in my wardrobe. It can easily be dressed up or down! I am wearing it tonight to go to our venue's open house. I am so excited! Here is how I styled it!

Outfit Post: Let It Go

I absolutely love Free Your Heart Apparel's Let It Go tee. That is definitely a phrase that I could apply to my life more. Sometimes I get hooked on something and worry/stress over it. You just have to "let it go". Here is how I styled it.

Okay I know you guys probably think I am obsessing over my Phillip Lim bags {I am haha} but seriously these bags are amazing quality. I used my large black tote last night for class and carried my wallet, planner, thin notebook, Mac Book Pro, charger + etc. and it didn't feel stuffed or anything! I even had room for more stuff. I am beyond impressed with how these bags are constructed due to the amazing low price. If any of you can get your hands on one do it! Also I have seen some people saying that the mini satchel is way to small...well if you normally put all the stuff I put in my large tote for class in your bag everyday...yes it is small. But if you are throwing your wallet, make-up, keys, sunnies {you know all the essentials} it is absolutely perfect! I don't always like carrying around huge bag so this really is great for me! I hope I helped if any of you are trying to decide what to get! :)

Outfit Post: Skater Dress

I was so excited when Street Chic sent me the gorgeous Jolie dress. I have never had the "skater skirt" style before so it was so much fun to style this and wearing it out to dinner last night. I styled it with my adorable dark turquoise necklace from Wild Butterfly Boutique, 3.1 Phillip Lim For Target bag {ahhhh:)} and my H&M sandals.

***Street Chic is giving my readers an amazing deal for the Jolie Dress! The code is: lovemydress and it will be valid through 9/23. Happy shopping! 

How amazing are both of these Phillip Lim bags I snagged yesterday at Target. I am not kidding I felt like it was Black Friday...people running in, grabbing was crazy and I won't be doing it again anytime soon. But I did go back to a different Target yesterday and get my mom the same tote I got but in a beautiful taupe color. So chic! Did any of you get lucky and find some Phillip Lim pieces?
