Sister Post

I've been a slacker over the past two days.  I've been completely tired and stressed about work which has caused lack of motivation to pick out new outfits. Over the past two days I've worn THIS outfit and THIS outfit.  I figured to make up for my lack of posts I'd share this picture of me and my adorable little sister...

Top: Loft, Skinnies: Target, Shoes: BCBG

Adorable isn't she? I know, I'm super short next to her!  She's 16, tall, gorgeous and a killer volleyball player :) Love you, Madison!

A Bad Day in Fabulous Shoes

Top: Loft
Sweater: Banana Republic
Black skinnies: Guess
Shoes: BCBG - DSW

I had an extrememly stressful day at work today so I'm keeping this one short.  At least I wore comfortable fabulous shoes all day!   I came home to flowers, beer, crab cakes & chocolate. Drew has to be the best fiance ever.

Hope everyone had a better day than me!

Black White & Coral

Top: Loft
Pants: Target

I don't know about you but this outfit reminds me of Uma Thurman's outfit during the Jack Rabbit Slims Twist Contest in Pulp Fiction.  Easily one of my many favorite scenes from the movie. This was my Friday date night oufit.  I can't tell you how many times during dinner I wanted to throw these shoes off and start doing the twist. For Drew's sake, I didn't go through with it.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Mustard & Flannel

Top & Bracelet: NY & Co.
Cropped Pants: H&M
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Forever21

I'm the queen of cropped pants this week.  I don't know why I'm holding back from busting out these white legs.  I mean, it's not like I'm doing anything to make them tan.  Jergens helps, but it's not giving me the results I want. Not to mention the awful streaks on my legs. Ugh.  Maybe I'll suck it up next week before all of my dresses and skirts go on strike and leave me.

Maxi Skirt & Sock Bun

Top: Forever21
Jean Jacket: NY & Co.
Maxi Skirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Payless
Bracelet & Earrings: Kohl's
Necklace: Target

I bought this maxi skirt last week and it's the second time I've worn it.  If you haven't made the maxi skirt plunge, I suggest you do it soon! Totally worth it.  It's so comfortable and will go with just about anything. I'm sure this will be a definite go to this spring/summer. 

 Thanks to the wonderful Pinterst, I've officially learned how to do a sock bun.  I had to adjust to the fact I was wearing a sock on my head all day, but it's 6pm and it's still going strong! The old bobby pin trick just doesn't work anymore with my long hair.

Favorite Shoes

Top: H&M
Blazer: LC-Kohl's
Pants: Target
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: Charming Charlie
Bracelet: Ruche

I made the decision today, these shoes are my absolute favorite pair of shoes I own. Maybe it's because it's been about 5 months since I've worn them.  I had to knock some dust off of them before putting them on.   The warm weather makes my shoe options are endless!   Drew just doesn't understand my excitement.  You all understand, don't you?

Red & Polka Dots

Top & Necklace: Forever21
Pants: Gap
Wedges: Target

I have a serious crush on these cropped pants! Gap calls the color Vermilion. Their a cross between red and orange.  I have to admit, I didn't put as much effort in my debut of these pants as I wanted. Monday's aren't always my best days.  I'll try something a bit edgier next time you see these.    

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Yellow & Turquoise

Blazer: Kohl's
Jeans & Necklace: Forever21
Top: Old Navy
Shoes: Target

I love this color combination, it just screams spring! It can't come soon enough! Drew and I have been plotting our spring planting approach for the season. Our hopes are to turn the condo deck into a spring wonderland. Can't wait.

I've decided to do my best to avoid tights until next fall. Until my legs aren't so pasty, pants it is. Hello Jergens, help a girl out!

The Sweater Vest

Sweater Vest: Forever21
Top: Loft
Jeans: Guess
Shoes: Rocket Dog-DSW
Necklace: Gift from Drew

I can't help but think about the movie Clueless everytime I see a woman wearing a sweater vest.  Alicia Silverstone was my fashion icon back then! You remember, right?

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Drew and I had a blast rooting for our UC Bearcats and hanging with friends.

Blazer and Skinnies

Blazer: Forever21
Skinnies: Guess
Shoes & Tank: Target
Necklace: Avon
Clutch: H&M Las Vegas!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Friday! I'm off work today and loving every second of it.  I slept until 11am. Yes, ELEVEN!!! Am I 18 again?!  I feel like I've been nonstop for the past two weeks. Finally, I feel rested.

These are the only outfit pictures I took while in Vegas. You just can't go wrong with a blazer and skinnies.  I picked this lovely clutch up at H&M while shopping with Drew and Amiee. I'm in love with it and can't wait to use it again.

Have a lovely weekend!

These are just a few of my favorite pics from our Vegas trip.  I am a bit frustrated that I didn't get as many outfit pictures as I wanted.  I wore a fabulous dress to the awards bash but just didn't have time to snap a pic.  It's okay, I'll make sure I wear it again for my blog's sake.

The awards bash was a hit, Zumanity was AMAZING, and my best friend was in town the same time we were!! What more could a girl ask for?!?!?!

I ordered this lovely skirt online thinking it was yellow.  It even looks yellow in these pictures but the truth is, it's lime green. Oh well, I still love stink out of it.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Before I share all of my pictures of Vegas, I have to share my good news! I PASSED MY CMP EXAM!  EEEEE! I'm officially a Certified Meeting Professional. Finally after all the time and stress I can breathe.

On The Road Again

Blazer: H&M
Top- Old Navy
Necklace & Earings: Charming Charlie
Tights: Kohl's
Shoes & Skirt: Target

I was stuck taking pictures on my own. My photographer (Drew) was MIA.

By the time you read this post I will be in Vegas. I planned an awards bash for our VMSD Magazine at PURE Nightclub.  Our magazine asked our readers for nominations for the best up and coming young designers in the retail design industry.  Our editors picked the top 12 and Thursday night we are honoring them! It's really exciting stuff, read about it here.  Long story short, I'm onsite to make sure the event goes perfectly!   Drew came along with me and we're staying for the weekend! I'll be sure to post all my fun Vegas outfits as soon as I get home.
