I Love Me Some Home

Oh I love me some home… a lyric from one of my favorite songs, Home, by Johnnyswim. If you haven’t heard it yet, download it. It’s a fun little diddy, and really speaks to my soul because I do love me some home. So when the guys from The Home T reached out to me to send me my own t-shirt reppin’ my home state, I quickly obliged.

To say I’m obsessed with these shoes would be a small understatement. I originally saw them on my lovely friend Jess, of Dressed by Jess. She styled them with a long maxi dress and I loved the way it looked. I’ve had them for a few months now and have just gotten around to wearing them and I really like the way they look with these distressed white jeans. The way they look like two different shoes is fabulous and fun. They are a great transition bootie for fall.

When I tell you guys this t-shirt is one of the softest shirts I own, that is no exaggeration. I am a pretty big fan of soft & comfortable t-shirts because they’re the perfect item to dress up or down. Throw this on with a little leather skirt and a slick blazer and it’s even more dressed up, swap out the booties for slip on sneakers and you’re way comfortable. Also, I just want to point out that the word ‘home’ is actually placed where my home is, so I mean, it’s perfect, haha. They make t-shirts and other items like this for every state so be sure to visit their site and grab one for yourself because a portion of all proceeds are donated to the fight against MS! I simply love shopping for a good cause, don’t you?

A Couple Shades of Gray

A recent trip to my local Forever21 left me a very happy shopper! I have been in the market for t-shirt dresses for months without finding any I loved and the Forever21 Gods heard my prayers. They answered with what seems like a fully stocked t-shirt dress section. I left with like 5 just to make sure I fed my cravings, ha!

I ended up switching from these wedge sandals to flats after a while because the second day was meant for exploring and I neeeeeeded to be comfortable. To be honest, since I’ve started putting my feet and comfort first I’ve been a much happier person, ha!

I love this dress in particular because it really does feel like I’m wearing an oversized t-shirt. Well I mean.. that’s probably the point I’m sure. The light fabric kept me very cool in this sticky disgusting weather we’ve been having lately. The South Moon Under necklace was the perfect cherry on top of my outfit. It is a great compliment for an otherwise casual t-shirt dress to jazz it up a little bit.

A Week in Leather || Day 2

Aloha! I’ll be continuing my looks in leather with this dressed up look. I kind of feel like this is the mullet of outfits. If you see it from the waist up it looks a little like business attire, but then from the waist down, BOOM, party time.

The lip color is my newest obsession, you’ll see me wearing it a lot. It’s a velvet matte lip pencil from NARS in the shade of “Dragon Girl.” It’s hottttttt. IMG_0599 IMG_0602 IMG_0604With an outfit like this I like to keep the accessories fairly simple. Not too many statement pieces since the shoes really call some major attention. These shoes are my pride and joy, and I’ve only gotten to wear them a hand full of times! My husband bought me different Lubes for Christmas last year which were nice, but they weren’t very me. So I exchanged them for these babies! However, it was winter, they’re open-toe suede, I couldn’t wear them until it got warmer. They’re about 6 inches high, so I can’t really wear them when I need to cart my daughter around, I’d never take that chance! But I do wear them for date nights as often as I can, ha!

Well that’s all for today folks! Another look with liquid leggings from Bebe. This is a top I got from H&M maternity for my last pregnancy. It seems to have shrunk a tad over the years, but I love the detailing around the neckline & the polkadots! It’s adorbs. Normally I might wear this with black or even red skinny jeans. Hope you dig it!

The Skull Society

My favorite (& most obvious) way to make my summer wardrobe last all year long is throwing tights under my dresses and sweaters over them. However, on a day like today when it’s nearly 60 degrees out, it doesn’t feel entirely necessary, but I do it anyway. If not for warmth then to hide my grossly pale skin. Summer, I need you!

IMG_0042The remnants of Christmas Past haunt this picture, and my house! It’s time to clean up all of our Christmas decorations for sure. I enjoy the time after Christmas because there are no real holidays left to decorate for. Time to relax…. in that sense anyway!

This necklace is to die for! it’s one of my favorites, but I rarely wear it because I’m really picky about what I wear it with, hah. I’m trying to work it into my wardrobe more often, it doesn’t seem right not to.IMG_0052 IMG_0056 IMG_0059 IMG_0060 IMG_0066I snagged this dress last summer from H&M. For a summer style, I throw a metallic belt around the waist with a pair  of my best gladiator sandals and I’m off. Being able to utilize your wardrobe no matter the season is fabulous, especially when having weather like this! 60 and sunny one day, rainy and 30 the next. You don’t quite know what to do with your clothes. When all else fails, layer, layer, layer! Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas holiday! See you in the new year! Until then, kisses!
