    Peplum Vest

    I love peplum tops. In my opinion, they can look good on just about every body type. I’ve had this peplum vest for a while and whenever I wear it I pair it with a solid color sweater or long sleeve tee underneath. I think it’s definitely something different and not the type of piece you see too often. Peplum Vest: Style & Co via Macy’s Top: Gap Pants: LOFT There is a small, clear button on the inside so you can war this vest open or closed. I like it both ways, but I think keeping it buttoned allows you to see the ruffles better. The cut is also similar to…

    Evian Facial Spray Giveaway

    I love facial sprays, whether they are toners to bring added moisture to my skin prior to moisturizer or makeup setting sprays to lock in my makeup. That being said, I’m really excited to share with you all that the Wilkes Group is offering me the chance to share a giveaway with you all for Evian’s Facial Spray. Evian Natural Mineral Water comes from the French Alps and filters for over 15 years through glacial rock and sand to a deep underground catchment. And guess what? The mineral water that makes up this facial spray is no different. Talk about luxury! The Wilkes Group is giving away (at random) 20 two…

    Photo Challenge: Orange You Glad It’s Photo Challenge Time?

    The Daily Post’s photo challenge this past week was to create a tiled gallery featuring the color orange, which is why the challenge is called “Orange You Glad It’s Photo Challenge Time?”. Orange is not a color you see all the time and it’s certainly not a color I wear too often. But, I made an effort to pay attention and be on the lookout for all things orange this week and I’m happy to report I have 5 pictures for my first ever tiled gallery! All these pictures were taken from the past week and I didn’t need to dig into my archives so I’m pretty excited about that.…

    Dress Your Favorite Disney Character

    Dress Your Favorite Disney Character by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring suede booties Continuing with my Disney theme from earlier today, I created this set on Polyvore about 2 weeks ago. They had a contest going on to dress your favorite Disney character. I don’t have a clear favorite character, but I do love Anna from Frozen because she’s not perfect and isn’t afraid to be herself. She pretty much owns her flaws and silliness and I love it. Instead of creating a look that looked just like her animated wardrobe – because they would just come off costume-y – I decided to put together pieces that people or I would actually wear that reflect…

    MAC Cinderella Haul

    As previously mentioned in my post about the Cinderella Glass Slipper inspired shoes that multiple designers have created, I love Cinderella and all things Disney. So when I heard that MAC was releasing a Cinderella collection, I was very excited. As with all MAC collections, I take a look at all the preview shots and press releases that come out prior to the release date. Bloggers and YouTubers that get their hands on these items way before everyone else are my go-to when it comes to deciding whether the collection is something I’m interested in or not. If I am interested, these sites/bloggers/YouTubers help me decide exactly what I want from…

    Lace Panels

    Today’s my late night of parent/teacher conferences. I was going to wear a dress because it’s supposed to actually get close to 60 degrees today! But, seeing as I’m still not feeling 100% (see last night’s post) I decided I’ll wear more comfortable wardrobe staples today and save the dress for next week. But let’s rewind a few days. This past Monday, I decided I wanted to go with a more low-key, trendy look for work instead of a more business casual look. Lace is one of my favorite materials and I think this tee with lace panels instantly creates a more interesting look. Top: JCrew Factory Pants: LOFT Watch: Fossil I can’t remember…

    Steamed Dumplings

    The weather is finally getting warmer! Like above 50 degrees kind of warm, but guess what? I’m sick. I mentioned over the weekend that I thought I was getting a cold. Well, yesterday I felt fine again and now today I started to feel sick by late morning with the chills. I stuck it out at work, because as I also mentioned over the weekend, I have parent/teacher conferences all week and leaving early or calling out tomorrow is going to cause such a hassle. Moving on, recently I made steamed dumplings with my mom which is definitely a comfort food and something I wish I had right now as…

    Jelly Sandwich Nails

    Have you ever done a jelly sandwich manicure? This is my first go of it. The first time I ever heard of jelly sandwich nails was a few years ago on one of YouTuber Holly Ann Aeree’s DIY nail videos. I was recently reminded of it when I was looking at some nail pictures online and seeing as it’s a really easy look to achieve, I figured it was right up my alley. Essentially, jelly sandwich is when you put a base coat of a nail polish on, then a sparkle layer, and then another layer of that first nail polish color again so the sparkle layer is sandwiched in…

    Yea or Nay: Cropped Fuzzy Sweater

    Cropped tops remind me of the 90s. Fuzzy sweaters remind me of the 90s too. But, as many of us know, the 90s are making a comeback in a big way. I wore this cropped, fuzzy sweater over the weekend. I was out and about all day and it was so comfortable, yet stylish for a casual day out. Tank Top: Calvin Klein Jeans: LOFT Boots: Classic Cardy UGG This sweater was perfect for me to wear all day. I went to lunch with a friend, an impromptu shopping trip, and then a much-needed hang out/catch up session with my guy friends at a hookah lounge til late into the night. For…
