I Heart Printed Dresses

Monday, June 24, 2013


Hellooo. So did you get the memo that, as of last week, it's officially summer? Yeah, I know.  I thought summer started way back in the beginning of May too. Back when it went from comfortable and spring-like to unbelievably hot in a single night. But as far as calendars are concerned, summer just began. With that being said, I am pleased to announce that means you can officially start wearing sundresses every single day without anyone judging you [that's my rule, not the standard - but I think it's pretty fair]!





Blue heart print dress: Old Navy
-Similar styles: Amazon $7.99 (on sale from $68.99), Old Navy $20 (on sale from $29.94), Forever 21 $22.80Forever 21 $24.80Old Navy $29.94 or Old Navy $32.94

Brown skinny belt (also seen here): Used from another dress I have
-Similar styles (both from Forever 21): $5.80 or $5.80

White espadrille wedges (also seen here): Old Navy










Are you obsessed with printed dresses too? If you can't tell already [from here... and here... and here], I love 'em to pieces! I am hard pressed to find a print dress that I don't want, even just a little bit.

Black & White Maxi Dress

Sunday, June 23, 2013


Hey, hey, hey! I hope you're doing well on this fine Sunday! Question: What is a trend that you have been terrified wary to try? For me, that scary trend is maxi dresses. I would see women wearing them and think, "Wow, she looks so effortless and adorable!" However, I've never been a fan of me in long dresses (I even wore a short dress to my senior prom, which was not considered the norm back then at good ole LHS). My sister is a new first time mom and she wears them on the go all the time. She looks so stinkin' cute in maxis and told me just to try them out. Yet, I was still nervous. Then I was fortunate enough to find this black and white beauty online. I received it in the mail, immediately tried it on, and was transformed into a maxi forever fan. Thank you so much for opening my eyes, Sister Shannon!

Are you into maxi dresses? If you have any reservations, do the opposite of what I did for so long and actually go to a store to try one on before you write them off entirely. Rookie mistake.

Navy Blue + Polka Dot + Ankle Strap (& the Giveaway Winner!)

Saturday, June 22, 2013


Hi there! What are you all up to? I've been relaxing like it's going out of style (I blame the summer heat). Except for the occasional bout of "Just Dance" ...Yes. That "Just Dance." As in, the Wii game that is targeted towards 14 year old tweens. But lemme tell ya! That semi-nerdy (yet incredibly fun) video game will make you break out in a serious sweat. And since I get bored of workouts really quickly, this is the perfect way to keep me motivated!

Anyway, I digress. This outfit below was for a casual night out with Matt and our friend. We had just stopped by Urban Outfitters for a quick minute, and as I scoured the sales racks, a lone shoebox called out to me. My heart raced as I looked at the size... They just so happened to be my size. Looked at the price... they only cost $9.99. At that point, I figured the shoes would be piss ugly, but as I opened the box, these beauts popped out in all their polka dot glory -- and all for $10, baby!  SCORE.




Navy blue sleeveless blouse: Old Navy
-Similar styles: Amazon $4.99 (on sale from $29.99), Amazon $5.82Old Navy $15 (on sale from $17.50), Old Navy $17.50 or Old Navy $17.50 (on sale from $19.94)

Skinny jeans: Forever 21 $10.80

Nude & coral polka dot ankle strap heels: Urban Outfitters [Still can't believe they only cost $10!]
-Similar styles: Charlotte Russe $17.49 (on sale from $35.50), Amazon $24.50 (on sale from $44.95), Forever 21 $26.80Charlotte Russe $32.50DSW $34.94 (on sale from $80) or DSW $39.94 (on sale from $129)
Get 25% off a pair of shoes at CharlotteRusse.com until 6/24!



Bright yellow chain strap crossbody purse (also seen here): Target $8




What's the most amazing deal you've ever scored unexpectedly? I think that surprise steals are the most fun, because when you plan for them (i.e. Black Friday) you know what you're in for. But with a shop shock (just coined that term... probs won't catch on, but whatever), you get all the joy at once! Does that even make any sense? Either way, share your best finds with me!

Also, without further adieu, the winner of the Yours Charmingly giveaway is Marta K.  Congratulations, darling!

Green Machine

Hello lovelies!

What did you do this past weekend?  My sister, brother-in-law, and baby niece were in town for the past week so we hung out with them :) ... until they left on Sunday night :(  I miss them oh-so-very-much, but that's life as an adult I suppose.  The upside is that every time either one of us visits the other, we are lucky enough that it means we get to travel to a vacation destination (they live in Orlando and we live in Phoenix) -- so that's a win-win!




Heather gray v-neck t-shirt: Old Navy $7.50 (on sale from $9.50)
Use promo code "ONSAVENOW" for 15% off your Women's OldNavy.com purchase until 6/19!

I got this green skirt back in high school [you can see the ripped lining in the last picture ^... whoopsies!  I just can't retire it no matter what! :P].  Who knew it would still be one of my favorite pieces I own all these years later?  Do you have any ancient articles of clothing that you just can't seem to let go?
