COW RING c/o - Slevinstyle

Instagram fun @melissa_sweetstyles

Happy moovelous Tuesday!  Don't you just LOVE my super cute cow ring!  It even has some bling on the ears!  My kind of cow!

Sweet Samantha from Slevinstyle sent me this awesome ring, which is one of many fantabulous items at her Etsy store.  Thanks Samantha!  I LOVE IT!  Check out her site for more funky cool items, which are handmade!  Here are a few of my favorite pieces:

In honor of the cow, I decided to wear black and white.  I know there are brown cows too.  LOL!
Of course I needed a pop of color, and I went with orange again.  I didn't mean to wear orange accessories again, I guess I really like my new belt!  I swear jeans, flats, and a blazer are my favorite!  I could wear this outfit all the time.  So comfy, yet chic!

I want to thank Samantha again for sending me this awesome ring!  Please show Samantha some love and visit her Etsy store Slevinstyle

Don't forget to have a moovelous day! #icrackmyselfup

Orange POP

Floral Top: Old Navy
Belt: Ny & Company
Jeans: Forever 21
Orange flats: Mandees

Feeling super bright this Monday morning!  Could it be my shoes??  

When I got these flats a few weeks ago, I wasn't sure what the heck I was going to wear them with.  I immediately thought white!  Then I saw this top in my closet which I haven't worn all summer, so I figured.....why not!  I think blue and orange compliment each other well.  How did I do?  Hope you like!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Friday sweets!  The weekend is finally here!  Hope you make it a good one! 

I wore this outfit last weekend for a friends birthday.  I forgot to download these pictures!  #GINKO
Better late, than never!  Bet you'll never guess where I got this dress.  Did you guess Target?  OF COURSE!  LOL!  I've been Target obsessed lately.  I go there for toiletries and leave with everything, but what I went for.  I don't think anyone can go to Target and leave empty handed.  I know, I can't! 

Now I want to share a few fun things with you!

Skinny Cargos

Jeans & Top: The 10 Spot (local store)
Necklace: H & M
Peacock Bangle: Forever 21
Wedges: Simply Vera Vera Wang (Kohl's)

Hi Lovies!  It's almost Friday!!  Can't wait for the weekend!  Hubby and I are going to visit family and chill pool side.  Oh, the joys of summer!  #sun#pool#colddrinks#bbq#family!
The weather is crappy today, rain comes and goes.  It poured a few minutes before I took these pics, then the sun came out. #justintime!

Are you crazy for cargos????  I am! 

I love the cargo pant, but I haven't found a pair that I love.  So when I found this denim pair, I knew I had to have them.  As you can see in the picture, you can dress them up or down.  I'm a flats lover so I would probably wear them with flats ALL the time. 

Today I decided to wear my new wedges instead, because I can't get enough of them.  I hate going into my closet and pulling old shoes....I just want to wear my new stuff all the time.  Hope I'm not boring you!   

Have a fantabulous day!

Belt: Ny & Company
Shorts: Merona (Target)
Leopard Wedges: Coconuts via Hautelook
Clutch: H & M

What's up, dolls!  Hope your all having a great morning!  I woke up feeling brave today.  I decided to mix my prints!  I got these shorts at Target and I love that they aren't too short.  The funky print is also a plus!  I thought that I would have a hard time styling these, but I think I did a pretty good job.  What do you think?  Did I do a good job?  I hope so!

  Now for some shopping fun! 

Have you checked out PLNDR yet?  If you haven't, you really should!  Their sales are awesome!  They just got new styles, new sales, and re-stocked on sold out items!  Go check it out!  Here are some of my favorite pieces from their site. 

This kimono style jacket is so cute!  I have one with a butterfly pattern and I love it!

I LOVE anything leopard!  The back of this top is FAB!

I hope you like some of my picks!  Definitely check out their site!  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.  They have something for everyone!

Floral Jeans

T-Shirt: Kohl's
Floral Jeans: Sample
Wedges: Simply Vera Vera Wang (Kohl's)
Fedora: Avon

Sorry for the ugly tag sticking out! #oops

Instagram fun! @melissa_sweetstyles

Happy Monday lovers!  Weekends are just too short!  I'm never ready for a new week.  I knew it would be a t-shirt and jeans kind of day.  I got these jeans from a friend who got them from her brother.  He works for an upcoming designer and these are a sample piece. 

Floral jeans are so on trend right now that I was super excited to have my first pair.  I wonder if the trend will continue into fall?  I'm pretty sure it will with darker tones.  Anyway, I wanted to style these better than I did with just a tee, but I was tired of them staring at me from my closet whispering.....wear me already! 
I've been obsessed with my fedora hat!  It's just one of those things In my closet I keep going back for.  I got my wedges at Kohl's and I love the color!  It was a plus that I got them on sale! 

If you read my last post, you know I got the Iphone earlier last week.  I have been LOVING it!  I don't think I miss my Blackberry at all!  I'm loving all the fun apps and especially Instagram!  If you haven't already, follow me @melissa_sweetstyles!  I hope you like how I styled my jeans!  Have a fab day!
