When you don’t want to do your hair, wear a fun outfit…

HAPPY FRIDAY!! This has been fun. I am an avid style blog follower and have always wanted to have a blog of my own. This has been a wonderful opportunity to test it out. Be a real blogger for a while. Turns out I thoroughly enjoy it! This may be my last post. Or at least my last post for a while. We will see where the wind takes me. Today I didn’t want to deal with my hair. Thus, I chose to wear an outfit that would draw attention to my clothes and away from my messy hair. And the overcast sky makes colors pop better than usual so I am taking full advantage of the opportunity to make my clothes stand out. I’ll let you decide if my plan succeeded or not. Also,...

Michael Kors Wedges

As an avid shoe lover, it didn’t take me very long to recognize that I chose an expensive passion to pursue. But it doesn’t have to be expensive! In junior high and high school I started shoe shopping at two cheap places that have held my heart ever since: thrifts stores of every kind and Ross. Here in Utah, there are a handful of thrift stores to browse. I have found the most success at Saver’s, specifically the one located on State Street in Orem. Last summer I found these Michael Kors wedges, in my size, for 6 dollars. So…. Don’t mind if I do! They are in pretty good shape, easy to walk in and wonderfully tall! In my book, the taller the...

Hello, Maxi Dress!

Hello, Maxi Dress!

Remember when I said my closet and I are ready for spring to come? WE ARE SO READY. Here is my new maxi dress to prove it. I found this little number at Ross a couple weeks ago and have been anxiously waiting for a beautiful day to bring it out! Today I would like to debunk a myth that I have been told my whole life in regards to how to add coverage to a sleeveless dress. “Just put a white shirt under it.” FALSE. Although a white shirt is a great way to add more coverage to a summer dress, it is┬ánot your only option. Today I chose a navy shirt to put under my dress (which matches in person and looks too dark in the photos, I promise!). Here are some of your...

Spring Closet Staple: Chiffon Blouse

Hello spring time!! Although the weather is struggling with the adjustment, my closet and I are more than ready to welcome in the new season! One of my favorite trends lately has been the chiffon blouses. Not only can they be worn for both formal and casual occasions, but these light weight tops can be worn all year round! Under a blazer or cardigan, a chiffon blouse does well in the fall and winter, but in the spring and summer these sheer tops are perfect on top of a cami or tank. Here in the casual office we get to wear whatever we want. Today I chose to celebrate spring with one of my favorite tops, a tan chiffon blouse from TJMaxx (possibly my favorite store in the...

What to Wear to a Wedding

Is it just me, or is everyone and their brother getting married this summer?? Seriously though, my high school sweet heart and I are getting married in May and my older brother is marrying his love the weekend just before! I guess my family is contributing 2 parties to the wedding madness that is happening this summer. Since wedding season is upon us, it is important to know how to dress for such an occasion. Spring and summer weddings are the best! Ok, maybe I’m bias, but outdoor parties are great. And summer wedding outfits are even better! This may sound like a vent session, but honestly I just want to educate the world on how to dress at a formal event....
