Street Style

I have always loved and been inspired by casual urban style. I love the use of bright colors, balanced with dark and neutrals. With this inspiration you can look great effortlessly. Fashion isn't always sky-high heels and glam outfits, this ensemble is my take on the current everyday street style. What do you think?!     

Jacket - Purchased from Forever 21
White long sleeved shirt - Purchased from Kohl's
Jeans are Jolt - Purchased from Nordstrom Rack
Sneakers are Levi's  - Purchased from Station's

Necklace - Purchased from Forever21

Earrings - Purchased from  Nordstrom Rack
Watch - Purchased from Shoe Dazzle
Ring - Purchased from a Premier Jewelry Consultant

I hope you have all enjoyed my urban inspired look!  This is something a bit outside of my comfort zone, specifically the sneakers.  But we must all take personal risks every now and then in the name of FASHION!!
As always thank you for viewing and please leave comments to let me know what you think and if you have or will try a similar look!

Get to Know Me #TAG

I recently spotted this tag on a fellow bloggers page, The Pampered Pout, and thought it was the cutest thing!  So I stole it so I could do it too!! 

Here we go!

I am a huge goofball 
My child is not only my life, but I'm told he is also my best accessory! 

1. Are you named after anyone?
I was actually named after the lead character in some kid's show my older sisters liked

2. When was the last time you cried?
It's been a little while, I try not too.  Crying is no fun

3. Do you have kids?
Yes. I Have a son named Landon, he is probably the most polite and considerate 4 year old ever, and my heart and soul :)

4. If you were another person, would you be friends with yourself?
Heck yea I would.  I think I'm fun to be around, and don't take myself too seriously.  I always try to be a good supportive friend.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
YES! Sarcasm is a way of life!  It is the best way of describing my sense of humor usually

6. Will you ever bungee jump? 
Most likely no, I value my life too much and would probably have a panic attack in the air

7. What's your favorite cereal?
Quaker Oat Squares and Cheerio's, I know I eat like an old man

8. What's the first thing you notice about people?
I would have to say how they carry themselves.  I can tell almost immediately how confident someone is by their demeanor

9. What is your eye colour?
I have hazel-ish eyes, lately they have been more green though

10. Scary movies or a happy ending?
Definitely movies with a happy ending!  If I watch a scary movie I literally have to sleep with someone and will wake up from nightmares for weeks!

11. Favourite smell?
Fresh baked bread, it's mouth watering!

12. Summer or Winter?
Summer for sure!  I am such a beach bum

13. Computer or TV?
Computer, I don't like watching TV very much and you can google free links to almost any show

14. What's the furthest you've ever been from home? 
I went across the country to California, but that's about it

15. Do you have any special talents?
I can do this weird thing with my shoulder where it looks dislocated, and I can belch like a man

16. Where were you born?
Salem, Massachusetts
17. What are your hobbies?
I enjoy blogging and running and making up weird songs with my son

18. Do you have any pets?
My puppy past away about 2 years ago :(

19. Favorite Movie?
Now I'm gong to really sound like an old person, but my favorite movie ever is "High Society" featuring Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Louie Armstrong

20. Do you have any siblings?
I have two older sisters and a younger brother

If there is anything else anyone would like to know about me that wasn't asked in this tag, please feel free to leave questions in the comment section!

Burgundy Bliss

Hello Hello Hello!!  I am so excited to share this post with all of you!  I got so much love for my Business Savvy look I posted a little while ago, I had to follow it up with another fabulous professional look!  Note to self; if you are wearing a sheer blouse to work put on a camisole!! :)  Like all of what I post, I love love love this look and hope you all do too!


Blouse - Purchased from Forever21
Skirt - Purchased from H&M 

Earrings - Purchased from the Nordstrom Rack

Both Rings - Purchased from
Belt  - Purchased from Charlotte Russe
Nail Polish is Essie's Muchi Muchi
Glitter Accent Nail is Essie's Stroke of Billiance

 Shoes are Jessica Simpson - Purchased from the Nordstrom Rack

As I mentioned earlier, if you will be wearing a sheer blouse to a professional event or place of business, please wear an undershirt! 
And while I do adore my "sky high heels" if I was wearing this to a place of business I would follow the rule 3 inches or under.

I really love a sophisticated yet trendy professional look.  I find them to be so fun to style and wear 
anytime, anywhere.  Please let me know what you think of this look by leaving comments below and let me know if you would like to see more of this type of look!
