Sweater Dress

Winner, winner!  I won this fab bracelet on a giveaway!  Happy Wrist has gorgeous pieces, make sure and check it out!

Watch: Anne Klein

Jacket: Ny & Company
Dress: H&M
Tights: Hue Tights (Macy's)
Booties: Faux Leather Wedge Booties (Forever 21)
Bracelet & Necklace: Mandees

Morning fashionistas!  If you lovies follow my blog, you know that my style is pretty easy breezy.  I love casual yet chic, everyday outfits.  I LOVE this dress I got on sale at H&M.  Not only was it $10, but it's so soft and comfy.  Whether your styling it like I did with booties and a cargo jacket, or even with flats and a belt; sweater dresses are so easy.  I love anything that isn't too fussy!  One piece and boom, your good to go!   

 I'm already planning on wearing this in the spring with cute sandals.  I got another dress at H&M like this but it's not a sweater, more like satin.  Or something like satin.  LOL!  Hope you like how I styled my dress!

Have an awesome day!

Pink Trim

Dress: Candies (Kohl's)
Cardi: Mudd (Kohl's)
Boots: MIA (Mandee)
Jewelry: Forever21 & Target

What's up my sweets!  I know, I've been MIA!  Between the freezing weather and a sick hubby...I've had no time for posts.  The weather is actually going to be super nice today and tomorrow so here I am!  I decided to wear a dress since for the past week or so, I've been in jeans and heavy sweaters.  I wore this dress to a birthday party just last weekend.  I wore it with heel booties and obviously no cardigan.  Anything in my closet that I can take from day to night with just changing up the boots, is always a plus! 

Have a fab day!

Keep your hat on!

Evil Eye Bracelet: Claudia Rowe

Hat: Mandee
Necklace: Kohl's
Belt: Ny & Company
Jeans: Levis
Wedge Booties: Forever 21

Morning sweets!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I had a birthday party on Saturday and the hubby and I had so much fun!  Anyway, yesterday was super duper windy in NJ!   It was so windy that a shingle came down from the roof of my apartment complex.  #crazy! 

I took full advantage of the windy weather and the fact that I was having a bad hair day, and decided to rock a hat!  Hats are so hot right now!  Whether its a bucket hat like mine, a beanie, rim hat, or a knit cap they are all the rage for winter 2013.  Here are a few of my favorites!


 Are you fashionistas loving hats as much as I am?  Which are your favorite?

Have an awesome day!

Chunky Knit

Sweater: J.Crew
Jeans & Necklace: Forever 21
Boots: Nine West
Earrings: Lola Blue, the closet 

One grey day!  Happy Wednesday loves!  Even though its raining and cold outside, I thought I would share a quick outfit post.  On a day like today, I wish I could stay in jammies all day!  Since I can't, the next best thing is being cozy and comfortable. 

You don't need to wear Uggs and sweats to feel comfy.......throw on a pair of skinnies, a chunky knit sweater, and some cute accessories like I did and BAM!  Cute, chic, and comfortable without looking like you just rolled out of bed.   How do you stay comfy, yet chic?

Have a fab day Sweets!

Sequins for Day

Necklace: Forever21
Sunnies: Mudd
Jeans: Kohl's
Flats: Mandee

Hey sweets!  I'm sharing my outfit today, but I'm not really a big fan of how I paired this new sweater.  I'm always late in the morning so I always rush my outfits.  If I wasn't running around in the morning like a headless chicken...LOL!  Then maybe I would have layered this with my chambray top or maybe some booties instead of flats.  I was also thinking I look like it's Christmas again....ugh!  I don't time I wear this sweater it will be completely different, so stay tuned! 

Even though I'm not feeling this outfit I hope it inspires you to wear sequins in the day! 

Thanks for visiting!
