{neon pink}

Bright colors and white pants are staples in my summer wardrobe. They're just so easy to throw on in the morning for work or to go grab drinks with girlfriends in. When I saw this shirt at TJ Max in the juniors section a couple of weeks ago I snatched it up like it was the last one on the rack! I'm in love with how it moves and the strap detailing. The white pants truly let it shine with full NEON power! They are by Old Navy in the Rockstar fit. I have them in every color and they're incredible!!

Shirt, TJ Max (exact same) // Pants // Clutch, Kate Spade (love this) // Shoes, TJ Max (similar, similar, similar) // Necklace (use this link to get 15% off: Bracelet - gift // Lipstick - Revlon in "Sweetheart Valentine"

The shirt's brand is Flying Tomato... they only sell to stores BUT it was $12 at TJ Max sooo run there now! I linked an online boutique where you can find it too :)

Love Always,

{ASOS Sale!}

Happy Friday Everyone!

One of my absolute favorite places to shop online is having a MAJOR sale right now: ASOS!
You can save up to 50% on a huge selection of tops, dresses, skirts, and swimwear and also enjoy an additional 10% off with the code 10HELLO if you spend over $100!!!
Men's clothing and accessories too!!

When shopping for a dress for my sister's graduation I bought 5 to try them on and was planning on keeping 2... wellllll let's just say I ended up wearing all of them before I could even return them (oops??). So let me see you prepare to get your shop on! I know you have SOMETHING you need an outfit for?! Maybe a wedding, Fourth of July, birthday, pool party, bachelorette weekend, make that guy jealous weekend, hot date, damn-I-look-skinny day, okay okay you get the idea. Everyone woman needs a little retail therapy AMIRIGHT? Yes, I know, I'm right! ;)

Here are some of my top picks (all under $100, no worries!):

Ugh now I feel the need to pair a crop top with a full patterned midi skirt like that last look... How fabulous is that outfit and pattern?? Amazing. THAT is how you do a crop top in my book!!

Happy weekend! I'm going to see OneRepublic in concert tonight! EEEK!!! I saw them last year with the boy and it was the most amazing night ever... can't wait to sing and dance the night away with friends this time around!

Love Always,

PS. don't forget to double check if something is a "petite". You can still fit into it if you're "regular" but always check the length and inseam. Trust me... you will thank me later!

{I believe that we will WIN}

In case you weren't aware of what's happening today...


Obviously there's a lot of team spirit going on around the USA right now. I've been scheming with my office to broadcast the game at noon tomorrow in our main conference room. (Some of us can't sneak away for 2 hours and get away with it. UGH.)
So, if you're like me, get that office riled up so your erratic behavior blends in with the rest of those hell-raising amurricans around you. I mean who doesn't want to see your coworkers get red in the face from yelling at a ref? Okay so we don't want to see that because that would mean bad things for us... but let's get back to the point of this post: TEAM SPIRIT

Ladies (and gents), this is prime time to break out some red, white and blue.

So if you're gonna be stuck in an office you've gotta throw together some work outfits based on what's in your closet... because that super cute romper with the open back I bought for the fourth is def not happening at work! SO here's what I'm wearing today... yay for another selfie ;)

Necklace (similar) // Shirt (similar and on sale!, similar, love this) // Skirt, old (similar, need) // Bracelet


I've also compiled a couple of my past outfits that are patriotic and good to go at work.

{obviously I love this necklace}

If all else fails a red necklace and lips will do the trick!
Does anybody have fun plans for the game? Fun office events going on?

Chant with me now: I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!

Love Always,

{if you want to know where any specific things are from feel free to email me!}

{wish list wednesday}

Pinterest is a fresh-in-the-bank-paycheck's best friend.
My wish list is always the first thing I go to when I need a little bit of retail therapy. There's no better feeling than having a bad day and punching in that credit card number (which I may or may not have memorized). See ya in 3+ days pretty new heels ;)

Here's what I'm currently coveting...

What do you have your heart set on this summer?

Love Always,

{buttons with a POP}

Happy Tuesday y’all!

Alright has anybody else attempted these selfies?? … Amazingly nobody has walked in on me in the bathroom while I’m reaching my arm up over my head! Eek! I feel like I’m attempting a MySpace picture but fitting it into a square frame instead of showing off my best smokey-eye and ~*emo face*~. Don’t lie… we’ve all been there!  I’m big on statement jewelry so this style of a shot is my best friend when I don’t have a full length mirror  J

One of the things I want to showcase on my blog is how to dress up “cheap” clothing. I work in at an Architecture firm so we can have a bit more creativity with our clothing (dress how you design is my motto) but I don’t exactly get a “Starchitect” budget if ya know what I mean. In a later post I’ll list everywhere I shop… I will take full credit for spreading the obsession throughout VT Greek life haha. Since trends come and go I buy shirts/skirts for cheap and invest (not always splurge) in classic items that will carry through the years. Think: purses, shoes, blazer, and everyday bangles.

This is my little bit of interwebs (as my coworkers say) heaven! I’m excited to talk fashion and inspiration! I’d also LOVE to hear how y’all might take different pieces and change up an outfit (hint hint my shirt is actually peplum!)

Love Always,

Shirt: Forever 21 // Skirt: Forever 21 // Necklace: Charlotte Russe // Shoes: Target // Polish: Essie in "Mint Candy Apple" // Bracelets: David Yurman // Lipstick: Maybelline Baby Lips in "Rose Rush"
