New Nails: Pretty In Pink

Just did my like? I'm trying to be a little more creative and wanted to go for pink colors. I debated on using tape for the lines but went ahead and tried to freehand lines. They don't look too bad I don't think.
Used Essie's Cute As A Button for the hot pinkish color.

Day & Night: Turquoise Skirt

Int he past week, with birthday parties, meetings, impromptu dinners, scorching weather, etc; I find myself going threw multiple outfits a day and doing loads more laundry. Its gotten so bad that I actually keep clothes in my car so I don't have to rush home, lol. I'm trying to find a way to go through less clothes by at least refusing some pieces from something I wore earlier in the day (even if its only one piece). That way Im not piling up tons a clothes a day. I'm always in need of a more casual outfit during the day so I don't have to wear heels for more than a few hours (unless they are wedges or a comfortable pair of heels--I have maybe 2 of these lol). Today I'm managing to do just that. I purchased the skirt from Love Culture and was in some way able to make it casual and then done up for a night out. Boyfriend would call them both dressy but hey...

Thundering Waterfalls

Thundering is actually a HUGE exaggeration. This was more of a mini man-made waterfall thats located in my sub-division. I've actually noticed many people using this location for a photo-op and decided that since I had never used it as a backdrop that I should switch it up. I've never had the opportunity to see large waterfalls in person. One day I hope to visit the Mountains of some state and check out that awesome wonder; or maybe even visit Niagara Falls one day. But how are you guys doing? The days are going by soo fast and its almost August! As for my outfit, my boyfriend got me this skirt last month for my birthday. I love the pattern, but these type of mini skirts never stay in one place and always end up riding up. Am I the only one who has this problem? I absolutely hate have to adjust my clothes in public so boo to that.
Wearing: Forever 21 skirt


Thanks for following guys! Stay inspired :)

Late Monday Inspiration

Mondays almost over for me but the week is only just beginning. So many things on my to do list and so many projects to get started. Didnt have time to take a picture of my outfit today so here are some inspirational pictures till tomorrow. I totally love Miroslava Duma in the first pic. Her style is soo wonderful!

Bright colors are a must for me right now.

 I am a sucker for anything striped

 I love rompers but im afraid that they don't make these jumpers for short girls like me? no? I managed to take even super long maxi skirts and make them mine..not sure it'd be so easy with pants jumpsuits...may have to get them cut and hemmed for myself. But I love seeing others in them.

[All photos from Stockholm StreetStyle...I love this site]
It's thunderstorming outside right now so I'm going to flip on my Adele playlist and read up on some blogs...or I may just go hide under the covers with my dog. He is soo terrified of the rain and thunder. Thanks so much to all who gave me some great ideas for my friends wedding gift! I soo appreciate it!

Head Over Heels over Karmin Music

You guys, I'm not really a youtube fanatic aside from watching makeup/fashion related videos so maybe I'm extremely late, but last night my friend introduced me to Karminmusic which is a duo including Amy and Nick. They fuse Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop, and Jazz, to create the greatest sounds. They have their own songs as well as many covers of songs. I am so in love with them at the moment that I really had to share it with you guys. My favorite would have to be their rendition of Chris Brown's "Look at me now" which I've posted below. They also cover artists such as Adele, Pink, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, Sugarland, etc... Amy especially is soo cute and funky. Her personality just totally jumps out as you. I'm a fan.

AMAZING right?

Ruffles In The Back

Quick post...This tank looks soo plain from the front that I didn't even know what to do with it. I debated belting it as I do with most of my flowy tops but I didnt like the way that looked either. The fit is very odd at the top, but I was determined to do something with it. I also love the back detailing. I'm looking for ideas of what to get a soon to be married couple for a wedding gift. There isn't a registry (always have a registry) for me to refer to but what can I buy that 200 other people will Please do share. Boyfriend agreed to let me take professional like pictures of him for his possible home improvement blog (or manpage as he likes to call it) so I get to play photographer in a few hours...yay!
 Wearing: top from Love Culture, BCBG pants, Coconuts wedges, Target purse and accessories.

 LOVE the back

Love you guys! Thanks for viewing!

Cobalt Blue

I have totally been obsessed with the color blue these days. So obsessed that when I saw that Zara had this blue blazer in my size there was no question in my mind that I had to get it. What shade of blue would this be considered? I'd like to think that it was cobalt blue but im not sure. Today is one of my dear friend's birthdays and I intend on wearing it to her bday dinner, but I live in Georgia and this 90+ degree weather is no joke so I may have to change midday. I just had to wear this blazer sometime soon despite the hot weather. So much to do today and I have yet to pick up my friend's bday card and something to wrap her gift in. I recently picked up this pretty pink Revlon lip color which I love so much. I think I'll make tomorrow's post about my July favs or something. My tomato plants in my vegetable garden have gotten so tall and now have green fruit on them so I'll have to show you guys that (I'm a proud parent). So glad to see sooo many new followers! I have like the next hour to read through many of your blogs and comment so expect my 2 cents really soon! Thank you guys sooo much for reading!

Turqouise and Red

This is my outfit from Saturday. Saturday was pretty eventful (not in a good way). Spent most of my day sitting in Atlanta traffic which sucked, but ended the day on a good note. Dinner and margaritas with some old girlfriends reminiscing of the days when we were younger in undergrad and how life just seemed so much easier back then when responsibilities were minimal. Its so great to catch with with people you don't see often. On a another note, I've noticed that I own so many hats but you guys see me wear them like once in a blue moon. I just hate the crease I get when I take them off so I usually only wear them when the humidity is totally against me. I absolutely love fedoras though when I do wear them.

 Wearing: H&M top and Belt, Forever 21 shorts, Target hat and shoes, Aldo bag.

 I later decided that I didnt want to wear the belt

I love these shorts!

I love that they are soo lightweight. Especially with the straw ones, I don't have to welcome a drenched head of hair after removing my hat. They make doing your hair very simple. If my hair isn't down, I can just throw it into a messy bun. They also protect me from the rain.

Thanks for reading!!!

Animal Fever!

It's pretty late on the East Coast. Like 1:16am, and I'm up painting my nails. I picked up Essie's Sand Tropez (which I didnt buy the first time I saw it because I thought it would look hideous on my nails) earlier today with my mind set on doing animal print nails. My hands were a little shaky but I think I did a pretty good job! What do you guys think??? Nighty night

Happy Friday guys! was going to do an outfit post today but I have yet to take the photos. Had an interview a few hours ago which went pretty well I think. Hope to hear back from the firm sometime next week. Wish me luck! Quick Thank you to all of you who have been following my blog! I hope that I was able to follow everyone back (please let me know if otherwise). In other news. I'm to lazy and tired to pull out an actual camera at the moment but here are a few goodies that I recently picked up. The clutch is from Zara. On sale for like $15 i think. The rings and bracelet are H&M. Necklace and earrings are from Nordstrom. Earrings were on sale for only $3. Can't wait to wear them! Happy weekend guys!

Red Bag

I don't own very many colorful bags. I use to be a black, brown or gray type of girl. In the last year however, I have come to own bags in so many different colors. Colorful bags are soo much more happy it seems. And they make any outfit pop a little more. I picked up this red bag from Aldo and I love it so. What color bags are in your closet?
 Wearing: dress from TJMaxx, Aldo bag, Target Shoes

Thank you for following! I appreciate you all!

Bloggers Do It Better

Hey guys! I recently chose to take part in the Bloggers do it Better challenge. Bloggers Do It Better is a movement that is setting out to showcase "...real girls, with real style, wearing real trends". The movement was started by a blogger who assigns trends for each challenge. Bloggers use the chosen trend as inspiration for an outfit then post on their blog. I've never taken part in a challenge before so im quite excited. The trend chosen for this challenge was the maxi skirt.  So excited it was a maxi skirt because I am on my last one. Actually, I wore this maxi skirt here. I got this skirt for F21 and hope you guys like my look for the day :)
 wearing: top from TJMaxx, skirt from Forever 21, clutch from F21, rings from H&M
