Casual Friday

Thank you sweet baby Jesus it's Friday! That means I get to sleep in tomorrow. :)  Every Friday at work we get to dress it down and keep it casual. This Friday I kept it casual with some boyfriend jeans, and added a blazer to keep it work appropriate.

I am such a fan of boyfriend jeans, and lately they have been my go to. Sometimes I dress it down with just a sweater and some flats but I'll leave that for another day. :) Happy Friday my loves!

What are you go-to pieces?

Wishing for Summertime

Happy President's day my loves! :) If you're like me, then you are still probably lounging in bed trying to get some well deserved relaxation before the regular week kicks in. Life's hectic and sometimes we forget our bodies will appreciate us more if we give it some time to relax, that is exactly what I plan on doing today! :) And maybe a little bit of hot yoga... 

This outfit was inspired by Lauren Conrad's Spring line at Kohl's. I'm such a huge fan of hers, tracing back to her Laguna Beach days! She is definitely an inspiration to me and I just adore how classy and composed she is at all times, its definitely a good trait. Not to mention her style is always stylish and chic without going overboard. 

"I think it's important that girls know they can be attractive and sexy in a classy way" - Lauren Conrad

Outfit Details: Shirt - LC Lauren Conrad | Skirt : Target | Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad | Jewelry: Macy's & Forever 21 | Wristlet : Target |

Have a great day dolls! :) xoxo

Pink Overload. :) Dressed down Valentine's

To all my readers that celebrate Lunar New Years, Happy New Years!! :) It's finally the year of the snake and that might not mean anything to some of you but my parents are extremely superstitious, and have been telling me nothing but good things about this year! According to the Chinese horoscope, I am a snake and this is about to be my best year yet. I like that the odds are in my favor... at least that is what I'll be telling myself everyday. :)

Valentine's day is this week. How time flies... here is another outfit idea for you guys. Have a wonderful Sunday! xoxo

Taylor Swift Inspired

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Who isn't a huge fan of Taylor Swift? Granted everyone has an opinion about her dating life but aside from that, she is an amazing artist. She's a relatable 23 year old girl who is searching for her knight in shining armor, just like the rest of us. Regardless if you support her or you don't, I'm pretty sure you each know one of her song by heart -- heck even my boyfriend likes to sing "we are never, ever getting back together!" :D

The inspiration for this outfit is off of her Ked's Campaign for Brave girls. That alone, is wonderful. She stands behind the definition of girl power and staying true to yourself. What a powerful message!

 Outfit Details: Yellow Long Sleeve: Old Navy ($5) | White Jeans: Wet Seal (here)| Red Keds- gift (here)

"I think doing something that's different, that's out of your comfort zone is important," she says of posing for Bazaar in les pantalons. "Personal growth, let's call it that." -Taylor Swift
