seeing things

You definitely aren't seeing things, I am wearing the same exact cargo vest from a couple of posts ago.  I seriously can't help it, it's my favorite extra piece to throw on with my outfits.  

In Florida, layering clothes is as basic as throwing on a scarf because more than likely you will sweat with the extra layers on your body.  With living in Washington, layering is key in picking out outfits.  It's cold & windy but it's not cold enough for a big winter jacket.  You are stuck with layering pieces, & as you can tell.. my J.Crew Factory Green Cargo Vest is my go to layering piece.. 

Back to the point of this post, tonight my Florida State Seminoles are playing in the NIT Tournament (yes, I know it's not the real tournament but they are  my team through thick and thin), so I had to rock my maroon, so I wore my striped sweater & threw on my garnet & gold necklaces.  Plus, check out my Bourbon & Boweties FSU bracelet & my Alex and Ani FSU bracelet.

Go Seminoles!





My Outfit
Vest: J. Crew Factory
Sweater: Old Navy (older, spring 2013)

pieces to make a perfect outfit

I am a huge fan of chambray tops & an even bigger fan of slouchy t - shirts.  Then when you add your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans plus a new sparkly necklace that you just had to have from a new favorite online store. .. 

Well you have yourself a perfect outfit.  These are my favorite outfit pieces to wear.  It's perfect for morning coffee, shopping with your mamma through text (I swear it's a lot more fun to shop with your mamma in person but when you live on the other side of the nation, you have to find ways to shop with your favorite shopping person), or to just play in the back yard with your favorite puppy..

For the last kicker, today in Spokane it was 55 degrees outside.  I jumped for joy because of how warm it was outside.  Come on 75 degrees, I need a TAN!

a delayed post

When I have to work my 6 day stretch at work, I usually wear my Target attire (red & khaki) then my pjs, this outfit of choice, never fails.  Today, was my day off (HALLELUJAH) so no red & khaki for this kid!
I have been dying to wear my new jewels that I snagged from the Bauble Bar sale a couple of weeks ago!  The minute I got this necklace in the mail, I fell in love.  I love this company's jewelry, it has such good quality, low prices, & they are just PRETTY!

My Outfit
Necklace: Bauble Bar
Button Up Shirt: Gap

my favorite basics | jean jacket & t -shirt

When I woke up yesterday, the weather was horrible.  It was raining & cold, so Brooke insisted that we go to the gym.  I thought about a nice big breakfast but I gave in & went to the gym because, "Hey, summer is right around the corner."  After the gym session & a quick cat nap, we went outside & it was beautiful! The sun was shinning & it felt amazing, I mean people it was 50 degrees outside & my Florida self was jumping for joy!  

My Outfit
Jean Jacket: Old Navy
Tshirt: Old Navy
Black Pants: Old Navy
Shoes: Old Navy

.. As I am writing this, can't ya'll tell I enjoy shopping at Old Navy, they have the best basic pieces.

clearance steals & deals

I (along with every other blogger) says they are queen of clearance finds! But I really am, I promise.  A couple of days ago, I went to Forever 21 to "try" to find something fun & sassy for a Friday date night.  Of course, I didn't find anything but I did find this beautiful, big, comfy sweater.  Let me say, this was the best $15 sweater I have ever found/bought/have worn.  It is so comfy and I want to wear it every single day.

My Outfit:
Sweater: Forever 21
Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft
Scarf: Ann Taylor Loft
Booties: Old Navy

Let me talk about the real beauty of these pictures.. the background.  These pictures do not justify the amazingness (is this even a real word)? 
Here a couple of snaps of the beautiful Coeur d' Alene

I am telling you this place is beautiful!

plaid & fur

This is a good definition of my comfy + cute outfit.  I wore this outfit to dinner with friends a couple of nights ago (but no pictures were taken, so it's like it never happened).  For this afternoon, when we went sight seeing in Spokane, I  wore my new fur vest from Brina Box!  It is the perfect vest to throw over any outfit that needs an extra push to make it look 100%!  

I have never worn a printed t -shirt underneath a button - up plaid shirt, so this is me taking a little fashion risk with trying new styles! What does everyone think of it? Would you try it out?!

My Outfit
Vest: Brina Box
Plaid Shirt: Forever 21 
T - Shirt: Old Navy
Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft
Purse: Loli & The Bean
Shoes: Target 

This weekend, I was blessed to get a visit from my little sister.  We went down town to Spokane River Front to walk around & eat lunch & shop some!  I am so excited to show Brooke around this town & share some quality sister time together

identical pieces

You know that day, when you finally give in & invest in a piece of clothing.  Mine is this J.Crew Factory Vest.  It was on sale for an extra 30% off, so I talked myself into buying it because I haven't been able to find a vest anywhere else.  

To my surprise when I walked into our Old Navy.. what did I find..?  The same exact vest, for about $20 cheaper.  Let's just say I was not a happy camper.  But what can I say..?!

Also, today was the first day I wore this necklace with an outfit & I was so excited to take pictures of it.  However, when we took pictures I forgot about wearing this necklace.  I promise it will be worn again & better pictures of it will be taken! 

my outfit:
sweater: old navy
necklace: j. crew

all the time

I am the type of girl who once she finds something she likes.. she wears it ALL THE TIME.  This is how I feel about my leopard print scarf.  I just love it & I don't have anything else to say. 

Anyways, the basics of this outfit is; I just got off work & I was tired so this comfy sweater kept me warm from the 18 degree weather.  You know.. the outfit is the definition of the lazy basics.

My Outfit:
Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft
Shirt: Ann Taylor Loft
Leggings: Ann Taylor Loft
Scarf & Purse: Loli & the Bean
