What is your take on the {fake}?  Since I was a young girl I always have wanted glasses.  When both of my sisters got glasses I remember wishing I could get them too.  Why?  I really cannot explain but I always just liked how they looked.  10 years later I am still not wearing real glasses but I AM wearing fake glasses.  To be honest, I have quite the collection.  I think that fake glasses can jazz up any outfit.  They can also be great when you are too lazy to put mascara on in the morning.
If you are looking to snag a pair for yourself check out Icing by Claires.  They always have stylish pairs for under $12.
So, what is your take on the {fake}?

Lately I have been lovin on these new leather leggings I was able to snag at Urban Outfitters.  I must say I contemplated whether or not to buy them for quite a bit,  simply because how often would I be able to wear leather leggings.  Well, I thought wrong.  I have been able to wear them a lot more than I thought I would be able to.  You can pair these bad boys with a lot more than a graphic tee.  This past weekend I wore them with a silk, coral tank top by Jack by BB Dakota with high top black wedges.

I have fallen in love with these and even if they are only trending a short while, you will see me wearing them much longer.

Well that’s all.

A few days ago I walked into H&M at the mall because I had a bit of time to spare the

day before graduation.  Probably a bad idea because H&M had many classy dresses at

extremely low prices.  Needless to say I was in shoppers heaven.  It took me only a few minutes

before I found this pink lace dress as well as another mint green retro looking dress.  Lately

I have really come to love mint green and light pink together.  The two pastel colors compliment

each other well.  Anyway, I had another dress picked out for graduation but once I saw this pink one

I decided I would have to return my other one.  This one was perfect. At $29, my closet had to have

it.  I already had nude heels and jewelry so the outfit was basically complete.  The addition of

the khaki Longchamp bag came from my special friend’s parents.  An awesome gift idea.  Believe it or not

this was the first purse I have owned.  Usually I am more of a wristlet girl but due to me continuously

leaving it behind at stores, restaurants, etc, J decided it might be time for me to get a purse.

Well I hope you enjoy the outfit combo and it has encouraged you to go out and get it yourself!

Well as always, laugh often and stay on the sunnyside.

Classy and Simple.  These words describe this outfit perfectly.  I wore this outfit out to dinner yesterday for the special friend’s brother’s birthday.  I must say I definitely had a few women staring at my feet.  The color of the shoes is amazing.   I had just received them that day as a graduation gift from J.  He yet again never fails to amaze me with his great taste. But moving on coral is one of the “in” colors this spring and summer which does not bother me one bit.  Afterall it is my favorite color… that and just about every other bright color.

Yes, yes.  I know some pieces of this outfit are a bit pricey but look alikes may be found at different stores for much lower prices.  Check out h&m.com.

White tank:  Target carries these tanks is just about any color you could imagine.  I have the white and khaki.  If they did not need to be washed I would probably have one of them on everyday.  For only $9 it is a STEAL!

Navy skirt:  Okay, so it is $69 but this skirt is a classic piece and can be paired with just about anything.  Whether it be bright jewelry, shoes, tanks, blouses it is a definite must by if you love skirts as much as I do.

Cole Haan flats: I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE.  Thanks to the best special friend ever I now own them.  If you do not feel like splurging look-a-likes to these flats can be found many other places.  Cap toes are a popular trend now.  They have a few bright colored cap toed flats.  I would suggest checking them out!

Belt:  Bright colored skinny belts.  Another staple item.  I have this one from J.Crew and wear it with everything.  It looks great on anything from jeans to dresses to skirts.  I love the patent leather look of this one too.

Scarf:  Last but not least, the scarf.  I snagged this baby from Urban yesterday.  The bright colors spoke to me and was basically telling me to grab it off the shelf.  Sooo, my lack of self control kicked in and I bought it as an “early graduation gift” to myself.

Well enjoy all the bright colors!

Happy Spring!

As always laugh often and stay on the sunnyside!

Working out no longer is a chore when you have cute yet comfortable apparel to work out in.  It is actually a proven fact that people are more motivated to hit the gym when they know they have something cute to put on.  I could not agree more.  As many of you know I have a slight obsession with Nike.  Oh and not to mention anything involving bright colors.  Over the past 9 months I have accumulated quite the load of Nike Frees and just about anything else they make thanks a certain someone.  Nike Frees  are not only the most comfortable shoes but they are quite stylish as well.  I LOVE them.  If you are feeling in a workout slump I encourage you to get out and buy yourself a cute new workout outfit.  And yes, it can be done without breaking the bank.  Here are a few websites that you can buy workout clothes at without depleting your life savings. 😉
Those are jut a few sites.  If you look around there are a plethora of websites that offer apparel at discounted prices.
Nike Frees:  THE most comfortable shoes ever.  I have this exact color, a lime green.  It is crazy how people begin to stare at your feet when you start wearing bright colored shoes.  Although these are $100, great running shoes are worth the investment because you wear them just about everyday.
Nike Top:  Pretty basic but breathable.  It comes in a bunch of different colors.  I picked it out because its a GREAT color and pretty inexpensive.
Nike Spandex:  Yes, these may be a bit bright for spandex but they come in many colors as well.  I own a pair in black and think they are wonderful.  You might be seeing a theme with the apparel I have chosen.  It is all my favorite color: Coral.  Very popular color this season.
Lulu Lemon Headband:  These are awesome headbands.  Usually I find some headbands slip out of my hair but this one is only $12 and literally never falls out.  It has grip strips inside the band which makes it a ‘no slip grip’.  The thickness varies and the color assortment is never ending.  Lately they have been coming out with some pretty fun patterns as well.
Now go shopping and treat yourself to a cute outfit. You deserve it. Oh and don’t forget to follow up your trip to the mall with some ice cream.  It is 49 cent cone season at McDonalds!  WOOO-HOOO!
Well as always laugh often and stay on the sunnyside,

Lately I have been on the hunt for the perfect black maxi dress.  Long dresses never really tickled my fancy but after seeing them on a few of my friends and in many fashion magazines I thought I would try one as well.  I shopped around online and went to the mall a few times but couldn’t seem to find the one that fit the picture I had in my mind.  I found a few classy Maxi’s but none that were in my price range.

 On my weekly trip to Target, as my best friend Megan and I were browsing through the women’s clothes( our first stop when we enter Target.  I swear Target puts women’s clothing in the front of the store on purpose) I happened to stumble upon the black maxi dress shown above.  I fell in love right away.  Not only did it have thicker straps at the top but the concept of color blocking came through as well at the bottom of the dress.  Best thing about this dress was it was on price cut for $25!!!!  I knew this dress was telling me to take it home.  But of course a girl cannot buy a dress without having the accessories.  So of course I wandered over to check out the sandals and jewelry. I found a great pair of sandals and turquoise earrings to top off this look.  Total: $65.99  I k now its a little above the $50 price range I was attempting to keep it under but a few of these items can be switched in and out for less expensive versions.  I tried to keep this look all from Target so it’s easy to recreate!  The bracelets are from Windsor.com.  If you decided to leave those out the price would drop to $54.99.  This would make the look completely from Target AND closer to my $50 goal.

Black Maxi Dress:  I love that this dress is cotton making it extremely comfortable and great to wear on a cool or warm summer day.  The color blocking with khaki on the bottom brings in another trend happening right now.  This dress was originally $50 but if you hit up your local Target right now its on sale for $25!  Such a steal!

Turquoise earrings and bracelets:  The earrings are from Target. I love the fact that they are drop earrings because it makes the dress a bit more ‘dressy’.  Depending on the look you are going for turquoise post earrings would also be great.  The bracelets tie in the turquoise to the outfit again and add just another accessory.  Cannot ever have enough of those!

Black sandals:  These braided black flats are insanely comfortable.  They are also on sale at Target right now for $15.  Best thing about black sandals is you can wear them with so many different outfits making them worth the buy.

I am loving the classy yet sultry vibe this look brings forth.  I hope you all do too!

Well as always laugh often and stay on the sunnyside,
