5 Days of AOS: Connnietang








This is my second time participating in Articles of Society's 5 Days of AOS campaign! (see first post here) I was super excited when they asked me to participate again because its an opportunity for 5 bloggers to style the same item, in this case the Mya Skinny in Nantucket Red. Initially I thought these were red because of the red in the name, but in person they are a really pretty coral shade. Which is perfect for Spring and Summer! Plus, these jeans are stretchy and comfortable. I have the honor of kicking off the campaign and be sure to check out these bloggers as they post their outfit!

Spring Crochet and Cork Wedges


TGIF everyone! The other half and I are going to Carmel for the weekend to eat some yummy food and to go hiking. Unfortunately the weather will not be good so we don't get to spend time at the beach and get a tan. (boo...) But on a brighter note, this outfit is festival inspired and would be great for anyone going to Coachella! :)



How cute are these dainty necklaces? I love the jewelry that Thought Blossoms makes and the best part is that most of their items can be personalized. Dainty personalized necklaces equal perfect! If you have not already, check out my giveaway with Thought Blossoms for a chance to win this circle necklace and a bracelet! :)

Pops of Color & International Giveaway!


Happy Sunday everyone and don't forget to wear green tomorrow! I am not a big green person so I am just going to wear one of my Cathryn Ann tassel bracelets in green. That counts right? ;)

If you take away the accessories on this outfit, it is a very classic black and white look. But throw in the accessories (plus this super color purple wall) and you have a super fun and cheery outfit. 







I also have a fun new giveaway that begins today with Thought Blossoms. I have teamed up with them to giveaway a jewelry set that includes one of my favorite jewelry pieces: the Circle Necklace and the Wrap Bracelet. Those two items are their best sellers and if you regularly read my blog you know that I use and abuse that necklace all the time. One main reason why I am a big fan of Thought Blossoms is because their jewelry is dainty and simple, making it perfect for an everyday look. Enter below and good luck!

Entries will be accepted until March 30th, 2013 at 12:00 AM PST and the giveaway is open internationally!

Red Plaid Cheer




Happy Saturday everyone! I wore this outfit when my bff and I went out for a mani and pedi date! It was my first time getting a pedicure and it felt so nice! I also got shellac for the first time on my fingers and it is mind blowing how well they last! Its been over 2 weeks now and the nail polish has not chipped! I don't want to ever take the polish off! ;)


Can you tell that this top is actually a shirt dress? I had to pin the bottom of the shirt dress to prevent it from showing below this skirt, but doubling your closet items is an amazing way to add variety to your wardrobe.
