Kitten Heels

Top: Old Navy
Scarf, Jeans & Shoes: Target

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  After my year in review post I couldn't stop thinking about these shoes.  It's been awhile since I've busted these babies out.  I wish I could find a kitten heel shoe as cute as these more often. My feet and knees would probably love me so much more. 

I have to brag about this sweater...6 bucks at Old Navy!  I love when I randomly stumble across a fabulous sale.

A Year in Review: Part 2

I love how I mixed the pattern with a vibrant green top and fun pink shoes!
 Month 8
This has to be in my top 5.  Those shoes absolutely kill my feet! The price we pay...

 Month 9
This is my number one.  I think every woman needs a fun sequin mini in their closet!

 Month 10
I need to wear this outfit again.  I had so much fun in it. Not to mention it was then night before I got engaged!

 Month 11
Ah, faux leather shorts.  If you asked me a year ago if I'd wear these babies, I'd probably look at you like you had 5 heads.  If you haven't tried them, I suggest you do!
 Month 12
Red pants! Another first for me!  I'm telling you, this blog has helped me break out of my shell! Now, I have no fear! Well, expect wearing them to the new job. In due time. 

This was my engagement night! I couldn't leave this one out! 

I just want to thank all of you for following my blog each day. It has been a great year and a great year of blogging! I love all of the blogger friendships I've built and hope to continue those over the next year. Not to mention making many more new friends.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

A Year in Review: Part 1

Yesterday was my 1 year blog-iversary! Whoa that flew by! To celebrate a great year of blogging, I thought I'd review my top 12 favorite outfits. One for each month of posting.  

Month 1
As you can tell by the picture quality, this was one of my very first outfit posts.  I loved the neutral mix with the blue top and green shoes.

Month 2
I remember being so excited about wearing these leopard print shoes for the first time.  I love the way the black tights make the leopard pop!

Month 3
Oh this dress and shoes!!  It has an amazing zipper down the back of it.  I remember feeling like hot stuff the night I wore this out. Nothing like a dress that makes you feel amazing!

Month 4
In Vegas! I met MC Hammer in this little number.  LOVE IT.

Month 5
This outfit shows off a classic Ang look.  One of my favorite skirts!

Month 6 
I haven't worn this dress since this night.  I quickly remembered how much I love this thing.  I need another girls night so I can wear it again! Oh and the shoes! LOVE!

Imagine that, all skirts and dresses! HA!  Stay tuned for outfits 7-12 tomorrow!

Good night!

Week 3

Top: Francesca's
Pants & Scarf: Target
Shoes: DSW

Worn Friday night.

My new job has been the hot topic on my blog lately. I can't help it!  This is week 3 and it's going wonderfully.  I am crazy busy and love every single second of it. I'm surrounded by such amazing positive people here. I feel like I'm in a whole new world!  I've been trying to get in the swing of my new work schedule trying to balance it with my personal life. Man, it's harder the older you get!  I feel like I never have enough time in my day.  I'll figure it all out soon enough. Thanks homies for putting up with me being so distant.  I'll be back around soon, promise.

Getting Used to Casual


Blazer & Top: Target, Blazer & Necklace: Forever21, Jeans: Guess

It's been great getting into the casual dress code at work. I feel like I have so many new outfit options without even shopping. My blog is sort of changing direction too.  Showing off a new side of my style, I dig it.  I have a feeling my shopping trips will be much more exciting,  business casual won't be on the brain so much anymore.  Now, I need to figure out how to incorporate all of my skirts without looking too over dressed.

Pants Again

 Top: H&M
Blazer: NY & Co.
Jeans: Guess
Boots: Target
Necklace: Charming Charlie

Yes, I'm wearing pants AGAIN! Breathe Bre it's okay! Maybe I should clarify for those reading for the first time.  No, I do not have an issue wearing clothes on my bottom half. I'm notorious for wearing a lot of skirts. So, having more than one outfit post involving pants is rare.

Any big plans this weekend? A bunch of us are going out tonight. A much needed celebration with one of my besties to celebrate our new jobs!

Everyone have a lovely!

Red Pants

Top: Loft
Sweater: NY&Co.
Pants: Target
Boots: Alloy
Necklace: Kohls

No, I didn't rock the red pants to work. I will though! Just give me time.  I wore this number to my besties' little girls first b-day party.   Can you tell me a better way to debut a pair of red pants? I didn't think so. 

Don't give up on me yet! I promise to have regular posts soon.  I am just trying to get in the swing of things at work. Exciting news though! My first event is in Vegas in March! We are planning an awards party in-conjunction-with Global Shop.  GlobalShop is the world’s largest annual event for retail design and shopper marketing. Pretty exciting stuff!

Outfit Rut

Top: Forever21
Scarf, Cardigan & Wedges: Target
Jeans: Guess

I was in an outfit rut this morning.  You know, kind where you stand in your closet and stare forever as if it's completely empty.  Ever have that happen? After trying on a ridiculous amount of outfits for 6:30am, I settled with this one. My room now looks like a garbage pit.  Once I got to work I quickly decided I hated it.  Okay, maybe not hate but pretty close.   I think it was just the cuffed jeans with these wedges. It could be that I'm not used to dressing down for work.

The Prefect Dress

Dress: H&M
Necklace: Avon
Bracelette: Charming Charlie
Shoes: Steve Madden

I know, I'm too dressed up. I just can't hide the fact that I love to dress up all the time. I decided to just lay it all out there today on my second day. I wore this outfit on my last day of work with Kroger and never had a chance to snap pictures.  I couldn't let it go unseen. I can't get enough of this dress. Regardless of how much static it attracts, it's perfect.

1st Day of Work!


Sweater: Target
Top: Loft
Pants: NY & Co.
Shoes: BCBG
Necklace: Charming Charlie

I'm back!  My exam is over and I started my new job today. Phew! Finally back to real life! My first day was fabulous. I'm going to absolutely love my new roll.  I can't wait to share more about the events I'll be planning.

I was stuck in a rut when trying to plan my first day of work outfit. I wasn't sure just how casual their casual dress code was.  I think I made the right choice. Having the new casual dress code will allow me to be more creative with my outfits and venture out of the blazer with pencil skirt looks I've been rocking for so long.

Happy Monday!

Happy New Year!

Dress: Modcloth
Shoes: Diba - DSW
Belt: Target
Tights: NY&Co. 
Bracelets: Mixture of Grandmother and Charming Charlie

As you can see I switched up the outfit idea.  I ended up buying these shoes at DSW with the gift card my dad gave me for Christmas. Thanks Pops! NYE was wonderful! We had dinner with friends and then a long night out dancing. My feet were killing me by the end of the night. 

I hope everyone had a lovely NYE.  This is going to be a big exciting year for Drew and I! I can't wait!  Next to the usual get in shape and eat healthier new year resolution, I think my biggest is to make more time for family and friends.  

How about you? What's your new years resolution??
