It's a Boy!

Mint Blazer and Lace Pencil Skirt (F21), Sequin Top (Greylin, C/O Piperlime), Taupe Tights (J.Crew), Bag (Balenciaga), Tan Shoes (Coach), Necklace (Vintage), Lime Quartz Ring (Macy's), Bracelets (T&Co, Antique, Handmade), Lip Gloss (Chanel, 166).

No, I am NOT expecting!! Yesterday was the baby shower for my soon-to-be-born nephew, James Marshall. Lauren, the mom-to-be, looked so cute and happy. It was great spending time and catching up with family, and they received beautiful gifts! James will be a spoiled little baby :)
The food was at a wonderful italian restaurant, and they made me a gluten-free plate too! I was so thankful.. the mimosas were amazing as well! 

I was going for pastels to represent the baby shower theme. I also wanted to look really girly, because I feel it was an appropriate occasion to do so! I wanted to wear my coach sandals, and it was a bit chilly. So, I wore these taupe J.Crew tights with them (seen before with the lace pencil skirt). I think the taupe and light pink work really well together. 

I can't wait to be an auntie!!
Such an exciting time

Peach and Jean

Jean Button up (Vintage, My Mom's), T-Shirt (Target), Peach Jeans (C/O T.J. Maxx), Nude Flats (Tory Burch), Necklace (Target), Bag (Balenciaga), Sunnies (Chanel), Rings (Antiques), Nail Polish (OPI, Mod About You)

I've been seeing jean button up tops everywhere, and I vaguely remember my mom owning one when I was younger. Sure enough, she held on to it, and the top is cuter than what I remember! It is by far one of my new staples, and it also looks good with way more than I anticipated. 
I have 'mistakenly'  held onto this button up everyday since I found it. .  ;)

This necklace was an amazing find at Target. It's an agate stone, and I have been looking for a longer chain, gold necklace. This is definitely the perfect amount of style but still modest. I also love its uniqueness! 

The peach jeans were a fantastic steal from T.J. Maxx. My friend Mary and I both snagged up a pair as soon as we saw them (we had been on the hunt for quite some time). 

Less than 7 DAYS until I can see my boyfriend!!
I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday!

Instagram Shots


I've had a lot of fun with instagram the last week or so ;) Basically, my fashion life in photos! This is sort of like a "throw back Thursday" in a sense ?!
It's addictive!

Loving Leopard

Sweater and Skinny Jeans (A&F), Cardigan (Old), Jacket and Necklace (F21, Old, Last Year), Clutch (Target, Here), Shoes (Kate Spade), Bracelets (Kenneth Kole, Francesca's, Vintage), Ring (Gift from my mom), Sunnies (Chanel), Lip Gloss (MAC), Nail Polish (Essie, Jamaica Me Crazy)

I wasn't sure if the weather today would be warm or on the chilly side due to the wind. So, I opted for a leopard cardigan and a leopard jacket just in case. The jacket came in handy at work when I was chilly through out the day. 
I have been dying to wear my gold Kate Spade oxfords again, and I finally was able to! I just love looking at them!
 I found this clutch last week at Target - AMAZING find - I love the ostrich embossed faux leather and the sky blue color. It has a strap that can be used or tucked in for a clutch. 

My boy is on his way back from Afghanistan and should be back in the states by tomorrow!
His family and I are visiting him next week! :]
I thank God for keeping him safe <3 He has been in Afghanistan since last May.
