time for a new post

got a little dressed up today. i wore a few of my new pieces-- and of course topped it off with a topknot. 

 then dressed it down a little by untucking the chambray top and adding my green vest.

Currently loving: statement necklaces.

Ok, I've always loved statement necklaces.

Where do you shop for fun necklaces?

yes or no?

Are desert wedge boots in style this fall/winter?

I loved them on Sydney and Jane...

Old Navy has some super cute & cheap ones. 

You know I love a good deal. The Sueded Desert Wedge is priced at a very reasonable 36 dollars.

What do you think? Yes or no?

crops crops crops

Current obsession. Crops. I dont own any. I am too short, they always end up looking like skinny jeans when I try them on. Anyone know of a place that sells good, petite sized crops?

Missoni for Target?!

Get your calendar/planner out. Grab a sharpie. Put a huge star on September 13. That is a very important day.

Missoni for Target. Horray!

Here is my favorite piece:

I will be heading to Target September 13th and will purchase all three. Aren't they pretty? 

How shall I wear them? I found some great inspiration from See Jane

a simple dress

Have I mentioned how much I love Target? This dress was priced at a reasonable $26. I love it. I wear it all the time. Apparently it was such a great deal, that about 5 of my coworkers have the exact same dress. We all have different colors of it. We all keep it in our summer rotation. Thats about every other week. 

Hey, when its this easy, whats not to love? 
dress- Target; shoes- Kohls (2 years ago); purse- market in Italy; watch- Walmart.

get crafty with me

Do you hate it when you have tons of empty wine bottles laying around?

Yes? Me too.

Here's something to do with them: spraypaint them! I found this on Pinterest-

I spray painted three different bottles with a black matte paint, then inserted some maroon flowers. I placed it on top of my cabinets in my apartment. Cheap & easy! 

 I added another bottle on a shelf above my couch. This one has the cork & a fun ribbon.

I wrote Live, Laugh & Love on these bottles. Its hard to read in the photo, my apologies. These are in a shiny brown paint and they sit in my bedroom.

networking event

I attended a networking event- and sported this pencil skirt/flowey top combo. You like? 

Sometimes I just hate tucking stuff into a pencil skirt. I had to take a new spin on it. 

pencil skirt- Gianni Bini (resale shop); top- TJ Maxx; necklace- F21

pinterest inspired

Anybody have a Pinterest account? If you dont, go sign up immediately, and then come right back here. 

I found this photo on Pinterest, and became obsessed with the outfit. I had to have it. I searched everywhere for an army green slinky top. 

Guess what friends? I found it at Target for a whopping $17. Perfection.

Now what should I pair it with?

sassy face

shoes & tights: Target. skirt: Old Navy. blouse: Banana Republic c/o Plato's Closet. blazer: Express c/o Platos's Closet.

stepping outside the normal professional-wear at work and going with a fun skirt for the day. i had a fun leopard print skinny belt picked out to wear but it does not fit. i might have to get some holes punched in it so i can make it a smidge tighter!

boy meets world

pants: F21 c/o Plato's closet. top: J.Crew c/o Plato's Closet

yes. my entire outfit is from plato's closet- for less than 20 bucks! let me just say that these pants are THE BEST. they are high-waisted...wide leg..and have a satin sash. i got them for 12 dollars, and they still had the F21 tags on them. the top is a thin sweater-like material with satin at the neckline. they are wonderful together. love love love. 

ok, done with that. 

now i am on a mad hunt for other fun trousers. like these paperbag waist pants. which this picture is from the jcrew website, but i was unable to locate the pants. if anyone has any tips, please send them my way. :)

p.s. i named this post 'boy meets world' because i have been watching it lately. it comes on at 6:30 AM so i watch it while getting ready for work. definitely worth it.

sugar bowl

tights: Target. skirt: Old Navy. top: Old Navy. necklace: F21.

although i was not in new orleans for the sugar bowl, i still had to get dressed up and support the hogs from my office. 
its a pretty casual top for my office, but i dressed it up with the necklace and highwaisted-skirt. a co-worker even asked where i got my top because she wanted one! she guessed jcrew...but no, its the cheapie from old navy and it ROCKS! :)

so we had a little tailgate party at the end of the work day...i made a BIG batch of puppy chow. also known as muddy buddies. and guess what- i won the award of 'best use of sugar'!!! get it? ;)
