Bringing Out The Scarves

{Mint Sequins Blouse, Nordstrom; Grey Tank, A&F; Grey Jeans, H&M; Bracelet (not pictured), Kate Spade NY; Necklace, T&Co; Bag, Louis Vuitton Artsy MM; Shoes, Sam Edelman; Skull Scarf, Nordstrom}

Instead of brining a sweater to work, I decided on this skull scarf I got for my birthday last month. Surprisingly, a scarf kept me warmer than I thought it would! 

My go-to hair style for work days is this top bun. It's messy, easy, and looks way better in the morning than..shall I say, now. lol.

Hope everyone has a lovely holiday weekend! 
Drink, Swim, Tan! That's what I'm planning on doing ;)

Leopard Smoothie

{ Cropped Sweater, Nordstrom Rack; Grey Tank Top, A&F; Leopard Print Pants, Target; Red Flats, Ellie Tahari; Bag, Louis Vuitton; Bracelets, Tory Burch and Tiffany & Co}

I threw this outfit together last night after getting home.. at 11 PM (I have to lay out my clothes the night before). Monday's are going to be brutal for the next 16 weeks, but let's pray I can get through everything without losing my mind! I was surprised with how good this outfit looked after putting it on, so snapping some pictures was a must ;)
Anyway, I didn't have time to stop at Starbucks this morning (although I wish), but I reuse the cups they give you. So, my mom made me a yummy smoothie for breakfast!

Surprises in Denver

{Floral Blouse, Nordstrom Here; Mint Jean Shorts, Forever 21 Similar Here; Sandals, ALDO; Purple Crossbody, Juicy Couture, Love this one by Rebecca Minkoff Here; Bracelets, Tory Burch Here, Tiffany & Co.}

{Amazing food from a local pub in Denver. The pizza was gluten-free too!! SO YUM}

I had such a lovely time in Denver this past weekend. These pictures were taken at the zoo. The weather was perfect! Originally, I was going to pair the blouse with jean shorts or white. However, I put the mint shorts next to the blouse, and thought to myself, "hmm this could work." I believe it did!
I'm really into the pop of diverse colors from the mint jeans and the purple purse. Lately, I love mixing and matching colors. 

I also have an announcement to make..
Needless to say, I am a very happy lady!!

Hope everyone is having a lovely week like I am!!

H M leopard print top

Boyfriend blazer

Tory Burch ballet flat

As I've mentioned in my previous post, I am heading to Colorado for the weekend to visit my lovely boyfriend! This will be my first time traveling ALONE on a plane (I have always traveled with someone else). Therefore, I am a little nervous. Although, I had quite a fun time deciding on what to wear to the airport!
I'll admit, I am a tad obsessed with looking at celebrities 'airport looks' and trying to recreate them on a daily basis. So, I actually had the advantage of creating a real airport look!
There are a few tips I've learned and decided when choosing an outfit for travel:
1). Minimal Jewelry - It's just easier in general to bring minimal jewelry on any short trip. Even though it is tempting to bring everything!
2). Layers - I am always cold or I'm hot. Therefore, I am bringing a blazer to wear over my blouse. I chose a blouse, because the sleeves can also be rolled up, and it is lightweight.
3). A large but functional bag - I love my Louis Vuitton Artsy, because it's classic, goes with everything, and can fit everything in it too! It's a good piece to bring, because unlike a large tote, I can bring my large, but beautiful (lol) bag to dinner, shopping, etc. on my trip!
4). Jeans - because they're comfortable but still put together. Leggings always work as well!
5). Flats - Easy to walk in and chic.
There's the long reasoning to why I chose this outfit.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend, too!

Geometric Shapes

{Blouse, Michael Michael Kors; Skinny Trousers, H&M; Blue Pumps, Liz Claiborne; Bracelets, T&Co, Handmade; Nail Polish, Revlon "Mint"; Navy Duffle Bag, Coach}

I am about to say something most of you will not want to read, so, beware!
I was very excited to wake up Monday morning being a little chilled. Even though it was difficult to get out of my cozy, warm bed, it was not difficult deciding what to wear. I purchased this blouse at Nordstrom Rack on my birthday, and it was finally cold enough to wear it! Ok, ok, so I'm a sucker for cooler weather. I used to be the person who despised fall, but now I LOVE it. I love layers, and I love long sleeves. I also love rain...but not being rained on ;)

This weekend I am going to visit my boyfriend in Colorado. I haven't seen him since the beginning of July when he was on leave. I cannot wait for Friday! Let's hope this week flies by!

Sequins Obsessed

 Outfit Choice #1
 Outfit Choice #2

{Photo 1: Glitter Flats, T.J. Maxx; IKat scarf, gift; Other Photos: Sequin Sweater, H&M; Black Shorts, Trina Turk; Jean Skirt, Hollister; Flats, Tory Burch; Bracelets, Kate Spade NY and Tory Burch}

I am the definition of a 'girly girl' in which I love glitter, sparkles, and sequins. I bet you couldn't guess? ;)
I snapped up this sweater at H&M a few weekends ago shopping with one of my girlfriends. It was the perfect opportunity to wear it Thursday, because the weather was in the low 70's by evening! However, I wanted to pair it with shorts or a skirt. I opted for the black shorts, but I think it looks cute with both options. Needless to say, I am loving this sweater (and taking pictures of the sweater lol).
 I cannot wait for the weather to cool down, so I can wear this beauty more often :)

Have a wonderful weekend, beauties!
