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!

With Spring in full swing and Summer on its way my wardrobe has suddenly gotten a lot more fun. There is something about spring and summer clothing that really gets me excited. Maybe it is the fact that I can walk outside in my bright yellow peacoat instead of a down Northface jacket. Anyway I decided to revamp the blog a little bit and make you beauts aware of my ‘passion for fashion’. Lately I have been a bit of a shopaholic. Oops.  But let’s be serious, who cannot be with all of these amazing trends out? I am not one to want to follow a lot of trends but lately, wowzas. Colored pants. Definitely one I am OBSESSED with. As a matter of fact I am so obsessed I will probably continue to wear them after the trend has come and gone.
One thing about trends is that since they may not stay in long you want to be sure to buy these items at a good price. Duh, right? Although the above outfit may seem a bit spendy sometimes it is nice to have a few staple items even though they may cost a bit more. I do admit the mint green jeans can be found elsewhere for a more budget friendly price but these Hudson’s were just so cute. The butt pockets get me every time.

Let’s go over each item:

The Cole Haan bag- Yes, I may suggest to request this as a gift (haha).  Possibly for graduation or wait for it to go on sale seeing as it is a bit spendy.  One great thing about this handbag is not only the color( it goes with everything) but the fact that it can be used as a crossbody or thrown over your shoulder as well.  Plus the style is timeless not to mention the quality of the bag will allow it to last forever.

The Toms:  These are great shoes.  Not only are the comfortable, classy, and cute but every time you buy a pair, another pair is given to a child in need.  These come in a variety of colors but I think the floral ones are an awesome pattern for summer.

The J.Crew. Chambray Shirt:  My special friend got me one of these for Christmas and I LOVE it.  You can pair it with everything from mint green jeans shown above to a pair of cute patterned shorts.  I have an adorable pair of shorts from J.Crew called the ‘Mini Delicious Apple Short that I wear the shirt with.  These are also from the special friend, not to toot his horn but he has an awesome sense of style.  Investing in a shirt such as this one will not leave you with any regrets.

Mint green jeans:  These can be bought anywhere from J.Crew, Hudson, or Aerie.  I have a pair from Aerie I scored for $30!

Well friends, this is the first of many fashion posts you will begin to see. Oh, and no worries next time I will stick to a budget.
