Lunch Date

Happy Good Friday Sweets! 

Hubby and I are spending some time at our favorite place this weekend...AC!  My hubby has had a few rough weeks with the passing of his uncle, and we just want to take a few days to chillax and unwind!  I wore this outfit last weekend to lunch, and I figured I would share it with you.  Even though spring is in full affect it surely doesn't feel like it. 

I know your wondering why I'm still wearing am I!  It's still too cold to wear anything else.  It's supposed to warm up this weekend, but then get cold again for the upcoming week.  Spring is just teasing us here in NJ.  Hopefully with the weather in the high 50's this weekend, I can rock something spring inspired!

Sweater: Kohl's
Top: Mudd (Kohl's)
Jeans: Levi's
Boots: Nine West
Bracelet: Charlotte Russe

If I can't get another post in before the end of the weekend, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Thanks for visiting!

Metallic & Cobalt

Jacket: Lauren Conrad 
Jeans & handbag: Kohl's
Sneaks: Bucco

Happy snowy Monday!  Yes it's freaking snowing in NJ!  Let's not talk about that....I'm so over talking about the weather!  Hoping it gets warmer SOON!

I had a wonderful weekend!  I had fun time; as well as family time.  My kind of weekend! 

I spent my Saturday afternoon at Short Hills Mall with Naty from A Love Affair With Fashion.  She had her very first meet and greet.  Of course if you follow my blog, you know that I've met the lovely Naty before, but I had to go and show her some love!  The meet and greet was sponsored by Smashbox Makeup and Nordstrom.  What a fun event!  I'm not a big makeup guru!  I put some concealer under my tired eyes, a little mineralize powder, blush, and a little mascara.  I'm good to go! 

At the meet and greet they raffled off a free make over.  Of course I wanted to win!  Lol!  Better luck next time!

Melissa won the makeover!  Her skin was flawless...she didn't even need makeup!  Isn't she lucky! 

Stunning!!!  Love the coral lip!  I had a coral lip that day too! 

We were such good students!  Lol! #focused 

Naty with the Smashbox team!

Naty was spring ready in her pretty skirt!  I kept it casual with a knit sweater and colored skinnies!

Yummy treats!

Goody bags!  Smashbox is famous for their primer; so I was happy to come home with a sample!

Melissa and Melissa..haha!

Eve and I #blurrybutcute!

Jennifer and I

Erika from Lola Blue, the Closet is such a natural beauty!  Love her!

Nadia from Nac Styles is gorgeous!  Love her hair!  Her super cute daughter was there too! 

All in all, it was a great event with awesome girls!  The best part about going to these events is meeting all these lovely ladies!  I know I say that every time I go to an event, but it's SO true!  As women and fashionistas we have to support each other!  #girlsruntheworld!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a fab day!

Diving into SPRING.....slowly!

Sweater & Blazer: Forever 21
Jeans: Levi's
Handbag: Nine & Co. (Kohl's)
Metallic Oxfords: Target

Happy first day of SPRING!  Oh Ms. Springgggg where have you been?  We've missed you sooo much! Welcome gack girl!

Don't let that sun fool's cold out!  I wish I could bring you this fabulous spring outfit, but it's too freaking cold.  I'm diving in I decided to not wear boots and rock these awesome metallic oxfords.  Seems like I can't stop wearing metallic lately.  I have a meet and greet on Saturday and I think I'm wearing metallic again! 

Ok...shoe talk!  I got these oxfords a little while ago, I wasn't sure how I was going to style them, but I sure as hell wasn't leaving without them!  Not long after I got them did I notice Sheryl from Walk in Wonderland has a pair from Dakota and they are beautiiiifulllll!  

I can't wait for the weather to get warmer so I can wear these with shorts and maybe a dress?  I hope you fashionistas like how I styled my metallic oxfords!

Hope your first day of spring is warm and bright!  Mine sure as hell isn't...LOL!

Still Winter...

Necklace: Mandee
Parrot Earrings: Walgreens

Sweater: Old, but I think Easy Pickins
Jeans: Mandee
Boots: Nine West
Belt: Ny & Company

I'm so not Monday ready.  I woke up not feeling so hot, but I did want to share my outfit anyway.  I don't know why I don't feel good, but geesh I feel like CRAP! 

  Ok it's definitely still winter.  It's freezing outside today, and were supposed to have snow tonight. 

This winter/spring weather is so annoying!  One day it's high 50's and you've got Spring fever, and the next it's in the 30's with flurries....UGH!   Anyway...I'm so excited about these black jeans I'm wearing.  I needed a black pair of jeans sooooo bad and I found these at Mandee recently and they fit so good!  Black jeans are so chic and you can dress them up or down.  I'm glad I finally got a pair I like.  I also got this necklace and I LOVE the edgy spikes, but the girliness of the pearls. 

Well Sweets, I hope you have a great day!!

Heavy Metal

Jeans: Forever 21
Leopard flats: H&M (similar here)
Sunnies: The 10 Spot (local store)
Necklace: Ny & Company
Earrings: Avon
Handbag: Rampage (via Hautelook)

Happy Hump Day! 

As you can see I'm shining on this pretty day!  Metallics are still going to be HUGE for spring. 

If you don't want to sport the look from head-to-toe, try key pieces like this awesome sweater from Rock and Republic.  Another great way to incorporate metallics is on your hands and feet!  Metallic nail polish is so fun! 

Have a wonderful day sweets!

Happy Monday Sweets!  Spring is around the corner!  Oh.....I'm so ready!  I can feel it!  Well I felt it this weekend, but it's going to be short lived.  Were supposed to have a cold front coming.......great! #NOT!

I'm in LOVE with my new Muse Apparel jacket!  I won a $150 gift card and while they have beautiful dresses, I chose this awesome taupe jacket.  The gold details are amazing!  I love the cargo pockets too!  I think it's the one piece you need in your closet for spring!

Have a lovely day!  Sorry for the ugly pics but it was super foggy this morning.
