Snake Print Chiffon Top

30 Jul

Happy Monday Everyone!

Yesterday afternoon my fiance and I tooká drive to the University of Toledo. He graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering over 6 years ago and he hasn’t been back since. I enjoyed walking the campus and being part of his “walk down memory lane.” I loved the stone architecture and decided to take a few photos of what I was wearing. Enjoy!

OC Fair 2012

24 Jul

Hey guys!

So I am finally getting back to my usual schedule. Last Wednesday my fiance and I got home from a week-long business trip in Southern California. Although we were there for his work, we did sneak out for the weekend and enjoyed the wonderful weather. Here are photos from when we went to the OC Fair.

Red Structured Shorts

19 Jul

Here is a quick OOTD (outfit of the day) that I wore to my future Mother-in-law’s house for brunch. I wore these red structured short from Forever21. These shorts are my absolute fave. If u noticed I wore the exact same shorts in past blog posts, but they were in the color navy. The shoes I am wearing are the Jessica Simpson Alexy wedges in Ivory. They are super comfortable and easy to walk in plus the wood detailing is amazing in person. I always get compliments on them when I wear them out.

Blush Pink Wedges

9 Jul

Happy Monday Everyone!

Recently I have found myself obsessing over wedges. These kind of shoes are my go to footwear for summer. Not only does the thick heel make them comfortable to wear for hours, but they are a good way of dressing up a pair of denim shorts without making you look like you are trying to hard. On a recent trip to Kohls I spotted these blush pink colored wedges. I was drawn to them because of their unique color and how versatile they were. To my surprise they were on sale for only $11.99, plus I had a 15% off coupon. I think I left the store paying under $11.00 dollars including tax. áI know I will definitely be wearing these out all Summer and into Fall. I checked on the Kohls website, but they are no longer available. If I were you I would definitely check out your nearest Kohls.

Black Bodycon Maxi Skirt

4 Jul

Happy 4th of July!

Last weekend I went to the the mall and did some retail therapy. One of my favorite things that I picked up is this black bodycon maxi skirt from Forever21. I love how it hugs my body and actually gives me a shape, plus it was only $15.80. I checked Forever21’s website, but couldn’t find it on there, so I would definitely check out your nearest location. I had a brunch date the other day and decided to wear this skirt. I wore it with a ribbed racerback tank top in coral and a camel colored belt to cinch my waist. The shoes I wore are from Steve Madden and matched my belt perfectly.
