Pretty Preppy

Although I've never been huge into the preppy look, I do enjoy playing dress up occasionally! Normally, I would wear this top with some cool, snakeskin pants or the skirt with an old band tee, but I wanted to go full out private school on this one. I must point out the coolest part of the whole look though- the watch.  This is a Seiko watch that was gifted to me as a Glambassador.  Although it's out of my normal price range, I do condone a few splurges a year, and this should definitely be one of them! This watch is $495, BUT it has 22 diamonds, is solar powered, and the best part is that is supports the American Heart Association! You're actually helping other people and getting a killer watch! Fabulous! PS- Also found it on sale at Kohl's for $371.25!!

Top: $44 at J.Crew outlet (current)
Skirt: $52 at Shabby Apple (sold out)
Booties: $50 at Tibi Outlet...originally $498
Watch: $371.25 Buy Me!  (More info on the watch at the bottom of the page!)
Bag: $215, Brahmin. (Fabulous gift from the boyfriend!)

Fall Fashion in the South!

Yay!!!! It's the best time of the year for everything!! Sports, activities, weather, food, and fashion!  I've been looking forward to this post all year! Early this summer I talked myself into buying a jacket I didn't need from Zara! Thank. God. I can already tell it's going to be my go-to all season.  It has a colorful Navajo print on it, but the colors are all perfect fall neutrals. The leather and zipper details make it just the right amount of edgy. Unfortunately, this jacket is no longer available....I just had to show it off!
Ps- I'm a big advocate of buying OUT of season because of the lower prices!

Jacket: ZARA
T-shirt: fab'rik
Shorts: DL1961
Booties: fab'rik (BUY HERE!)
Scarf: bought this in NYC for $5

It seemed like Christmas morning as I woke up to the text I've been waiting for for years, "Don't mind me, I'm just putting things in my cart at H&M and then buying them online like it's 2013!!!!!" (Thanks Tiff!)  I had a feeling when I saw their maintenance message last night that they were FINALLY preparing their site for purchasing!  Naturally, I had to be one of the first to buy something, so check out my purchases below!! My total was UNDER $100!

Crop Tops and Snakeprint

So...this post is all about fab'rik.  We just got in the CUTEST crop tops, and at only $28 I had to get a few! I chose to pair the black one with this asymmetrical snakeskin print maxi skirt (with built in shorts, I must add) and some neutral wedges.  This is the comfiest outfit and gives the illusion of a dress. (I got multiple compliments on my "dress" while wearing it.)  This skirt is only $48 which keeps the whole outfit under $80! Both of these pieces can be mixed and matched to create completely different looks, too! PS- If you want to order either of these, stop by your local fab'rik or call us at 478-475-1800!

Yellow: The color of summer!

I've never been that big on yellow, but recently it's been grabbing my attention.  The neon yellow I  keep seeing over and over is almost magnetizing and makes anyone look tanner as soon as putting it on. (Always a plus in my eyes!)  If that's not enough to convince you that you need to try this color out, maybe some of these items will do the trick! I want them all.

Long Sleeves, Short Hems

The weather is finally getting warmer, but it's still a bit chilly at night. One of my favorite things to wear this time of year are long-sleeved dresses! I want to wear cute little dresses, but if they're sleeveless I'm always toting a jacket around. That's where these dresses come in handy! Since your arms are covered, you don't have to worry about getting cold! (Or lugging around a jacket!)  Here are a few adorable options that are all budget friendly! (All under $55!)

Preppy for Spring

I put this outfit together a little differently than usual; from the bottom up!  I just fell in love with these Keds for Kate Spade!! (There are so many other cute styles, too!) I wouldn't normally pay $75 for shoes, but Keds are so comfy and these are the perfect flats for Spring, Summer and even into Fall with army greens and denim! Not to mention, they're Kate Spade.
 I love mixing colors, especially when they're bright and cheery like these! The anorak is the perfect weight for this time of year and really just pulls the whole look together.  If you don't have one yet, this one is great and the price is even better! Hello, SPRING!

Outfit of the Day: J.CREW

Yesterday I was able to go to J.CREW at Lenox and also the J.CREW Factory Outlet at Tanger.  Wow...I advise you to never purchase from their regular stores.  Not only are the outlet stores WAY cheaper, but one of the employees let me in on a little secret.  The "J.CREW Collection" is always the most expensive but usually doesn't sell well. She said if you wait 2-3 months, it will always end up for about 70% off in the outlets.  I think it's worth the wait! After passing on many $100+ items I wanted at Lenox, I was able to buy 3 things for under $100 at Tanger! Below is one of the outfits I bought!
PS-If you're a teacher or student, you can show your the store for an extra 15% off!
