Spring Getaway

Sometimes packing can be such a chore. Especially when you have a tendency to over-pack like me. I decided to challenge myself with creating ten different looks that would be perfect for a fun spring getaway.
1.  Lacquered Link Necklace, Forever21. 2. Spiked Faux Leather Collar, Forever21. 3. Scalloped Cutout Belt, Forever21. 4. Tucker Flat, Steve Madden. 5. Beaded Feather Charm Necklace, Forever21. 6. Denim Shirt, H&M. 7. Polka Dot Tie-Front Sleeveless Woven Shirt, Aeropostale. 8. Crisscross Crop Top, Forever21. 9. Nautical Button Sailor Shorts, Forever21. 10.  High-Waisted Lace Shorts, Forever21. 11. Pleather T-Strap Cork Wedge Sandal, Charlotte Russe. 12. Dress, H&M.

For my "spring getaway" looks I decided to use pieces that had character but were still versatile. These pieces might not normally be characterized as basics but I thought that they had lots of potential when it came to making outfits. Here are the looks that I made:

The looks I created would be perfect for a range of events. Some are dressy whereas others are really laid-back and casual.  I  loved was how affordable all of the pieces I used are. This shows that you can wear one piece of clothing multiple ways and get the most out of your money.

I hope this gave you some ideas on what to pack the next time you go away. Some times less really is more!

Pretty Random

This is what happens when I get bored.
I draw on napkins.
And drink bottled water.

Does any one else think its strange that the water bottle clearly states that it has zero calories? I guess I would just assume that water has no calories but maybe I'm wrong.

My Recent Obsession: Tumblr

So, it happened. I finally started to use my Tumblr account and needless to say I'm obsessed. Not just obsessed, I'm check my homepage every 10 minutes obsessed. What I love most about Tumblr is that it's sort of like Intagram, Twitter, Blogger, and Facebook all in one. For random everyday stuff follow me on Tumblr. I upload stuff all day. 


Adventures in Target

Sunglasses Forever21, Scarf  (similar) Forever 21, Jacket TJ Maxx, Hat Target 
There's just something about this kooky floral hat. I found this lovely "treasure" at Target while I was on the hunt for a black and white Red Sox snapback. This one sort of reminds me of Hawaiian shirt. Anyways... still on a mission to find that Red Sox hat. 


Gingham Style

Model on left is wearing a Button-Down Gingham-Print Top from Macy's Marilyn Monroe Collection. Model on right is wear an Essential Gingham Shirt from Forever21.
For Spring I've been noticing lot of gingham-prints especially in pastel colors. This classic print can be dressed up or dressed down and goes with almost anyone's style. Make it sassy by tying a knot and wearing it with white jeans and wedges or make it preppy with a blazer, tailored shorts, and ballet flats. The styling is all up to you. The classic gingham print shirt can be worn so many ways. It is definitely worth adding to your closet because it will never go out of fashion.

Legally Blonde Party

For my 15th birthday I decided to have a Legally Blonde themed party, mainly because I am obsessed with the movie (and have been for years) and partly because it gave me an excuse to dress like a Barbie for an entire day. 

Guests received a fabulous jeweled collar from H&M, pink Hersey kisses, Sally Hanson nail polish,  Rimmel lip gloss, elf liquid eyeliner, a nail file, a heart-shaped charm bracelet, a jeweled mirror, and of course a pair of hot pink bunny ears just like the ones Elle wears in the movie. Mine of coarse had a pink tiara glue-gunned to them. 

Decorations included pink feather boas, Harvard Law School posters, photos from the movie, a stuffed chihuahua, and a  pink Harvard t-shirt.

We played a game where we guessed how many diamonds were in this jar. The winner got a pink crystal jewelry set.

I loved these white paper decorations.

Guests munched on pizza and drank pink lemonade. For dessert there were marble cupcakes with hot pink frosting, pink cotton candy, cookies, and brownies. 

Of course there had to be a snap cup!

The girls used pink feathery pens to write their "warm-fuzzies" about other party-goers in the snap cup.

This was from earlier in the week.
Always be yourself, unless you can be Elle Woods. Then, always be Elle Woods.
Since about two weeks ago I've been watching Legally Blonde, both 1 & 2, nonstop. I can now confidently quote this movie just as well as I can quote Mean Girls. I remember when I was younger I decided that I wanted to be a lawyer and go to Harvard after watching this movie. A part of me still wants to be the real life Elle Woods but I think I have a better place in fashion. 

Happy Birthday to any of my fashionistas who celebrated in March. Best wishes.
