Screen shot 2014-02-07 at 9.39.51 PM


Warm weather is finally HERE and I for one could not be more excited!! I’m so ready for summer dresses and open toes I don’t know what to do!! This is the last of my Spring-ish outfit posts so I wanted to hurry and get it up and out – after all its Memorial Day WEEKEND!! #SUMMERSUMMERSUMMERTIME  #SUMMERTIME

Blouse: Gap (this particular one is sold out, but they have great button ups like this and this and then Banana has amazing button ups as well like this and this – wait for one of their infamous 40% off sales though. Not worth shelling out $70 bucks); Skirt: Dorothy Perkins (old, but here are some cute alternatives here, and here); Shoes: Steve Madden (old, but if you like stacked heels try these)

The One with the Metallics

Mettalics2*singing* “Silver and Gold….silver and gold…I’d rather have Jesus…than Silver and Gold…”

Okay, that may or may not be inappropriate. I have a terrible barometer for that when it comes to funny. Funny wins.

Anyway, people always ask me about wearing silver and gold together because I have a set of silver bangles that I never take off and I often accessorize with gold costume jewelry. My canned answer is “so what.” Just like wearing white after labor day and matching your purse and shoes, I don’t subscribe to most “fashion rules” and this is certainly one of them. I saw these funky boots on Zara’s website and fell in love. My kid says they space-aged, but again, I don’t care. I LOVE them. Here’s the run down for the rest of the outfit.

Pants: Gap (old, but similar here and here); Blouse: J. Crew; Sweatshirt: J. Crew; Boots: Zara (sold out but these are so funky to me and if you want to splurge these are hot business as well.); Tote bag: Zara (also, sold out, but there are so many cute options, like this and this and (since we’re talking about metallics) this!); Bracelet: Banana Republic (old, but this is similar); Necklace: (old, but similar here); Sunglasses: Old Navy (in store).
