My Favorite Maxi

I love maxi dresses. But, I'm 5'0 and have a hard time finding them to fit just right. I like them long enough to wear heels with, but short enough to wear flats with. I like options, ya know? I got this dress a couple years ago at Kohls. I don't always find good deals at Kohls, but when I do, I love them for a long time. I was excited this morning to pull it back out for spring! There are a lot of cute cardigans that could be paired with this, today I picked the denim jacket. I must say, I love this look. 

P.S. Don't get rid of clothes you really love. I have learned they usually come back in style, never really go out of style, or you can make it your own style anyway! 

Dress - Kohls (MUDD Brand) | Denim Jacket - Bohme Boutique | Bracelets - Very Jane |

Denim + Tan

Happy Thursday! 

Here a few more pictures of my outfit of the day today ---

Top - Target | Jacket - Bohme Boutique | Pants - Bohme Boutique (Flying Monkey brand) | Shoes - DSW Shoes

I tend to be a bargain shopper. Like I mentioned in my post yesterday, I love high end brands, but I love getting good deals, and this outfit I got some deals on! ---> The shirt- $5 end of summer sale, The Jacket- $35, The pants- $30, Shoes- $40. 

I love denim and I love denim jacket- it goes with everything! I have dressed it up, and dressed it down. Today, I dressed it down with these super comfy and stretchy tan pants, simple tee, and flats (which by the way are a perfect fit and so comfy). Casual, Cute, Comfy. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Mint + Black

It has been a mild winter, and I can't complain. But, it's March, and I'm ready for all things spring! Mornings are still chilly, but for the last week the high has been in the 60's- SO nice! So I decided to pull out a little spring style this morning!

Top - Ross | Pants - Tilly's | Shoes - Target | Necklace - Forever 21

I just bought this top this past weekend, $8.99! I was there grabbing a little something for my friend's birthday get together that evening, so I was in a bit of a hurry and this spotted my eye. I was debating on a couple of things, but I liked this even better and it was less expensive than the other items! 

Sidenote: I LOVE high end stores, clothes, and shoes. But, I also LOVE a good deal. My experience with Ross is hit or miss, but the hits are GREAT! 

The mint pants are actually from a couple seasons ago. I bought them at Tillys, during my first visit there. They were 2 for $65 at the time, and I bought a coral pair too. They are RSQ brand. They are a stretch material and super comfortable. I love that I can dress them up or down. I have a habit of rolling my skinnies, I love the look.

My shoes are from Target- you can't go wrong when Target breaks out their spring selection of sandals. I LOVE Target, always have and probably always will. I have a black and gold pair as well. I bought them for $15 a pair at the time. It's always nice when you strike a great bargain there!

The pearl necklace is a few years old as well. I bought it at Forever 21. I actually really love their jewelry selection. It's cute, stylish, and inexpensive. 

Each new season is fun for different reasons. While I love boots, scarves, and sweaters, I'm excited for spring! I'll share more springtime outfits and ideas soon!

P.S. Where are some of your favorite places to buy sandals?

Simple & Stylish

  Outfit details-  Shirt - Nordstrom (Rack) Jeans - Daytrip (Buckle) Jacket - Express Shoes - Steve Madden Necklace - Charming Charlie Purse - Coach This is one of my new favorite combinations. I'm always looking for new and different items of clothing. It's fun to mix to match. This is one of my new favorite shirts. I would venture to guess, we all love Nordstrom. I do, and I love Nordstrom Rack even more! It is kind of hit and miss- and you have to look. But when you find something, it's great! My jeans are one of my most favorite pair. They are inexpensive, and fit very true to size (something us short people have problems with sometimes). My shoes- who doesn't love a pair of nude heels?? They go with everything! The necklace was inexpensive. Charming Charlie is dangerous! They have SO much cute stuff, and it's all color coordinated. My purse is a Coach outlet special. I love the color and style, and the price even more! We went just before Christmas for part of my early Christmas present. My husband actually helped pick it out for me. (Sidenote: He has really good taste, and is really good at helping me pick things out) It was 50% off the entire store, and an additional 40% off of the clearance. This find happened to be on clearance, so I got it for $90! I'm telling you, keep an eye out at the Coach outlet!
