Crazy Schedule!

Work has me going crazyyyy! I been working like a maniac the past two weeks. I'm glad I start school next week and my work schedule will go back to normal (meaning I will stop neglecting the blog).

Top: Kohl's blazer; Forever 21 blouse
Bottom: Levi's jeans
Shoes: Ebay (bought wayyy before they were sold at every store imaginable)
Accessories: Kohl's watch; beya bangles; Madrag earrings


This outfit is from a week or so ago. I wore it to my final project presentation and was told I looked presentable...ummm, thanks? I'm still trying to figure out what that meant since I think I always look "presentable" when I go to school. Anyways, this blazer is kinda genius. I bought it on a whim and thought I would end up returning it since I had no idea how to style it, But then I went into my closet and quickly figured out that it goes with everything. I'm telling you, ge-ni-us!

PS: New camera coming in a few weeks! Exciting!!

Rock & Republic @ Kohl's

Ok so I was very, very, very excited for the Jason Wu launch at Target, but I think Rock and Republic definitely topped it! *Gasp* I know, crazy. Maybe I'm a little biased because I work at Kohl's and I've been looking at these pieces for a month now, but I'm in love.

Have you ever seen a more elegant jean jacket in your life?! I know I haven't. Stuning.

This sweater is genius! I think it would be great over a bright colored long sleeve during the winter or over a tank and shorts for the warmer months.

And ofcourse the shoes, oh the shoes. I like those, but I'm completely in love with these I just can't get the picture for some reason. You can bet I will be buying both pairs when they go on sale next week.

There are also a pair of red, skinny capris that I can't wait to get my hands on. Unfortunately those aren't on the website so I suggest you go to your nearest Kohl's and chek them out. Definitely won't regret it.

Bowling Night

On Saturday I finally had my work "Christmas" party (I know it's kinda ridiculous, but they have to do it like that because they can't afford to give most of the associates a Saturday off in the middle of December to go to the party, so to make it fair for everybody they do it on a weekend in which they can run the store with few employees). It was at a bowling alley with lots of food, drinks, and awesome co-workers so I went for something very causal.

Top: Kohl's graphic tee; Tilly's Faux leather jacket
Bottom: Sirens jeans
Shoes: Ebay
Accessories: Kohl's ring; gifted ring; Madrag earrings

Sorry about the horrible pictures. But I'm a full time student and can only work part time so I can't afford to buy a nicer camera...yet, I'm saving for one and hopefully soon I'll be able to buy one.
Have a great week!

Spring Trends Part II

A little late but here is part two of what I think will be some seriously awesome spring trends.

The asymmetrical skirt:

I've seen this skirt pop up in other blogs since early fall in neutral colors, mainly black, but I think that as soon as spring weather comes, so will the colorful skirts.

The slouchy peg pant:

I like these pants because they work perfect for both a professional wardrobe or a more casual wardrobe. Wear them with a nice blazer and you're ready for work, wear them with a nice blouse and statement jewelry and you're ready for dinner with the girls.

Patterned pants:

Floral, plaid, polka-dots, it's all game this spring. Pick your favorite patterns and mix and match for a bold statement, or keep it simple on top to make the pants stand out, either way you can't go wrong with these.


I'm working on a third post but not promising anything just yet, have a very busy couple of days ahead. I'm off to get some work done so I can hit the sack early. Goodnight lovelies.

Spring Trends Part I

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm ready for spring to get here! I know I live in Florida and winter here doesn't compare to winter up north, BUT this crazy weather is driving me insane. I don't mind the couple months of somewhat cold temperatures we get each year what I do mind is one day being a nasty 40 degrees and the next it's blazing hot! Or having to leave all bundled up in the mornings and coming home with all the layers in my hands. Ok let me stop my rant, my point is I been dreaming of what I will be rocking once it goes back to being 100 degrees. So far this is what I've come up with.

Peplum Shirt:
I like this style because it's very fun and feminine. It can be worn subtly with strong shoulders to balance it out or with a pencil skirt to make it the focal point of the outfit.

The Oversized Blouse:
Perfect for color blocking or big floral patterns!

Sleeveless Button Up:
Again, perfect for color blocking in very bold colors. Personally, I wouldn't t feel comfortable wearing a cropped one, but I'm sure on someone with enough confidence it would look nice.
Of course we can't just go out only wearing pretty little tops, so tomorrow I'll talk about what will be going on with the legs!

In my makeup bag

So lately I've been reading a few beauty blogs which have been very helpful in regards to tutorials and such. Of course everybody has different skin and so I don't really go to them for product recommendations. I like experimenting and trying things out for myself. And today for some reason I thought doing a "what's in my bag" post instead of an outfit post was a good idea, so here it goes.

This is what I use and carry around on a daily basis..sort of

3.Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder  (I use 245 which is a shade darker than the foundation)
4. Flirt! brushes from Kohl's (no longer available online)
5. Maybelline Fit Me Blush (308 deep nude)
6. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (235; Fit Me collection available at any drugstore)
7. This is a Maybelline mascara but I can't seem to find it only and as you can see the name has worn off. All I know is that the shade is Very Black.
8. Rimmel London Lycra Lash Extender Mascara (I have two mascaras because I just bought this one after hearing some good things about it..let's see how it works out)
9. Eyeliner pencil sharpener
11. Maybelline Baby Lips (Cherry Me)
12. NYC Eyeliner (Jet Black; I use this in combination with a Stila black eyeshadow to make it last longer)
13. Sephora Compact Mirror

Man that's quite a bit of things to be carrying around, but then again I need an excuse to keep buying bigger purses!

As natural as it gets

Yesterday I woke up a little on the lazy side and decided makeup and decent looking hair were not necessary.

Top: JcPenney
Bottom: Forever 21 skirt; Kohl's tights
Accessories: Beya bangles; Kohl's watch

Face free of makeup and no contact lenses

Air dried hair

Shoes: Gifted

So there it is. A simple outfit inspired by laziness, and I couldn't have loved it more. I was comfortable all day long!

Why I love Target!

Sooo who else is excited for the launch of Jason Wu's collection at Target?! Ever since I heard about it I been dreaming of the day it will finally be in my closet, and now that its only a month away I have pretty little patterns and gorgeous stripes dancing in my head.

Perfect for any season. With tights, booties, and a nice leather jacket for winter or all on its own for a hot summer day.



Again, can be worn during any season. Best part? In just two minutes I came up with ten different outfits using just the pieces above, don't you just love versatile pieces!



And of course the bags, the beautiful, beautiful bags. I am speechless.

Oh February 5th, can you just get here already??
