Back & Revamped!

I've been thinking of way to revamp this blog for sometime now. Instead of posting about what other people are or should be wearing, I will be posting items from my closet and where to buy things that I actually own. Below is the exact outfit I'm wearing today. I've been feeling sick all week since I've been on prednisone for my chest and am bringing my niece to a birthday party in a few hours so dressing up in the furthest thing from my mind today.

Sunglasses :: I purchased my sunglasses from Target for $16.99. I'm always breaking sunglasses in my purse, so I can never justify spending $100+ on a pair. These actually look good with my face shape (which doesn't happen often) and are fun because of the gold gamuts.

Boots :: Another Target purchase. I bought these the other day for $34.99 to wear with a skater skirt. For being boots, I find these to be incredibly versatile (& comfortable!).

Shirt :: Also from Target. I believe this was also $16.99. I love the fake leather detailing and the fact that it's long enough to wear with leggings if I want to. It's also loose without making me look ten pounds heavier. A definite win! I'm also in love with the color...I mean, who doesn't love a good green?

Jeans :: Jeans are one item I don't mind splurging a little on. I'm currently wearing Collin Iconic skinny jeans from Hudson USA. I spent $165 on them and can honestly say it was some of the best money I've ever spent. They fit perfectly, are comfortable, and make my butt look great. It's difficult to find jeans that are long enough and have a good rise (since I'm just shy of 5'10) and these are truly perfection.

One thing you'll quickly learn about me is that I'm not an "over-accessorizer". I really dislike when people try to wear too many accessories. I would rather wear 1-2 accessories than have them overwhelm an outfit. When I've dressed people for red carpets, fashion critics always mention that they like the simple accessories and that it keeps things looking fresh. I'm all for a fresh and to the point outfit, whether it be on the red carpet or in everyday life.

I look forward to sharing more items from my closet with you, as well as, my favorite beauty items and products. I will also be having friends guest blogging on here and sharing their favorites and tips. Keep an eye out! Things will be posted a lot more frequently!
