Hey guys!

Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween.

I’m still working on that big outfit catch up post. I know I keep saying that. I will get to it eventually.

I wrote about my ex a few weeks ago and I’m going to write about it again. I haven’t dated a lot to be honest. My ex was pretty much my first boyfriend and somehow it morphed into a serious relationship. We only dated 3 months but we were friends for 3 months before that, so it felt like a lot longer. I guess technically we weren’t ever official, but I mean more or less he was my boyfriend and I was his girlfriend. We both weren’t really planning on a relationship but I don’t know, somehow it just morphed into something serious and quick. It just snowballed and got away from us. We were complete opposites. He was 5 years older than me. I mean when you think about it,5 years doesn’t seem like that much, but as the relationship got deeper and deeper I could feel the gap drifting farther apart. 5 years seemed like so much. We were just raised totally different, had totally different views/values, lived totally different lives and I think that’s part of the allure that drew us closer at first. I was lightness to his darkness. He used to say that a lot in the beginning and I didn’t get the weight of what it actually meant and the almost horror of it until I was too far in. In the moment, I guess it was great, passionate, but it was also super messy and chaotic. Dangerous. It’s like we both knew it was doomed from the start and we were running out of time and that almost seemed to draw us closer together. I didn’t know he was wrong for me at the beginning. I’ll be honest, I was a great influence on him. I added to his life, but he wasn’t able to do that for me. I think he knew he was wrong for me just because of his past and his issues,but he used it as almost leverage to draw me close to him. He knew it would run out of time, but he wanted to make the most of what we had. I fell for it of course because in the heat of the moment it feels good and whenever you feel like you’re running out of time, it adds an almost urgency to it like it would never happen again if it weren’t for certain circumstances.

I’m just going to be blunt. We work together, so that is also what is making it super difficult for me. I mean, it’s different divisions, but we still see each other here and there and have almost the exact same schedule.It’s not my greatest decision, but I would say I’m an optimist and didn’t think it would end badly or end at all. I didn’t think of the consequences.  It was almost a bubble because I know if I met him somewhere else and at another time, I would not date him. Looking back, in a way, and I would not have said this a few months ago, it’s kind of beautiful. Like I went though a lot of hurt and heartache when it blew up and the after math, but that special moment and time when two very different people bonded is kind of cool. Even though it didn’t work out, I know we both cared about each other and I think it’s kind of beautiful that those version of ourselves,me and him, will always exist in the universe. I just didn’t know that afterwards it would be all or nothing. Like we can never go back to just how it used to be, like friendly co-workers, because too much has happened between us. That’s been the hardest thing to get over for me. He talked to me last week just about work stuff. I was surprised. I hadn’t heard him say my name is so long. It’s like the whole breakup and what not and all the memories have been floating around in my head since then and then once he said my name it brought me back to the present, to the now, like everything shattered.

I thought I was ready to talk to him. I did a few times this week. I was wrong. So very wrong. That’s why I have just been avoiding him because I know I can’t go there again. We kind of flirted like we used to. I felt totally different though. I felt nothing really. No excitement. No wonder. I just felt kind of disgusting and like a backslider. Disgust. That’s the word for sure. I felt disgusted talking to him. Like that’s really apart of my past I don’t want to go back to and in that moment, I felt like I was going backwards instead of forwards. I told him I missed talking to him sometimes. It’s true. I do. I asked if he missed me. He thought about it a long time and said, “yeah…sometimes. I just don’t want people’s feelings to get hurt.” He was talking about me. It was a little too late for that. I don’t even know if he meant it, but he is not a good influence for me so I don’t really care. He’s the one that lost out. Not me. I really did win getting away from him. I walked away from him. He yelled after me, “you can call me.” I told him I lost his number which actually I deleted it. He said he would text me. I said we should hang out. In that moment, I knew we’d do neither.

I’m going to be honest, for a long time I wanted nothing to do with him and I’ve been doing so good that I haven’t even thought of him in forever. It got screwed up when he talked to me. I mean it was nothing, but when you have a history like we do, it’s hard. At least, it’s hard for me. This week, even today like up until a few hours ago, I thought I might want to revisit something with him. I really wanted his phone number back haha! Not a relationship that’s for sure, but something in which I could feel that bond we used to have. That closeness. That spark we once had. The truth is though, it can and never will be the same. I actually only realized this because my friend Sarah pointed it out to me. I’m so glad she brought me back to reality. You really can’t romanticize things like I said in my “Clean” post. It’s very hard for me though.

But it’s okay and I think in a way, it was good I talked to him. It showed me that I have moved on and I don’t feel for him like I used to. It showed me I’m different and grown up. I’ve learned so much since 6 months ago. I don’t think I will be talking to him anytime soon though. I can’t. I honestly would not have been saying this like two months ago, but in a way, I’m kind of glad it happened. I’ve grown so much through all the hurt and heartache. Even though my friends think he’s totally trash, to me and maybe this is my downfall and that optimist side of me, but I see/saw a tiny flicker of greatness in him. It’s really tiny, but it’s there. I think he can become better and have a better life if he really works at it, but I think I believed in him more than he believed in himself. I kept that vision of who I know he can be over who he really is right now and that was my downfall. I guess I have this weird Holden Caulfield habit where I like to see the good in people, their innocence. I want to save them, but in reality you can’t save someone who doesn’t want to save themselves  Still, in some weird way, I will always hold a special place in my heart for him. I really do hope that one day he can live the life he imagined. I know that I will, but he just has so many barriers to overcome it’s hard to say what will become of him.

Wow this felt really good write. Sarah encouraged me to write this and I’m glad I did. I never knew how hard relationships were. Even short ones can pack a hurricane of emotions and memories. They sure mess with you.

More later!

Hallow-Back Girl

Hello, hello headbandits!

Sorry for not doing that catch up post yet. Still working on it.

I did want to share something though.

I got a haircut! Got rid of 12 inches. Every few years I go back to short and bangs. Then I grow it out again. It feels so light and fresh. I love it. Sometimes you’re just ready for a change.


Are you ready for Halloween?! It’s kind of fun to dress up. I used to always at my old work (daycare) when we would have our fall festival. I’ve been dressing up at my new work too. I can’t wait for tomorrow. We are having a little party and a costume contest. I’m going to be Batman this year! I will share it when I actually wear it. I love Batman. He’s so rad. He’s just a billionaire with a utility belt. He fights with his fists and doesn’t need “powers.” That’s bad ass.

I thought I would take a walk down memory lane to see what I’ve been over the years.

2014 I was my spirit animal,Minnie Mouse.


2013 I was Kate Middleton. I just love a fascinator.


Also for 2013: a flapper. We had a flapper party around Halloween in our school’s library. It was sick. I think I was a flapper in another life.


2012: Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s


2011: I can’t find right now, but I’m pretty sure I was a 50’s girl.

2010: A flapper again.


2009: Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz.


What are you going to be this year??


Stay fabulous!

Spades Forever!



Hello, hello headbandits!

Sorry it’s been soooo long. I can’t believe it’s been about 5 months. So unlike me. I’m really sad I haven’t been keeping up on my blog. That’s something I was really trying to work on and was doing good for a while. Then life happens.  I’m just going to be up front about it, for the most part, but I haven’t even written about this for myself, because it’s been so hard, so we’ll see how well I do.

I had a terrible summer and wasn’t feeling like myself. I went though something I never thought would happen to me. Some of it, I still haven’t really processed and so sorry if it’s kind of vague. I just didn’t feel like blogging or doing anything that I used to do. I wasn’t much in the mood for it. It’s a bummer because summer is my favorite and I just wasn’t in a good place to enjoy it. I’m just going to be honest. I went though my first major break up. In the end, I’m so happy that we broke up because it just wasn’t right on so many levels, but it still doesn’t make it any easier. I just wish I didn’t take it so hard after, but I guess I sort of liked being a couple and then afterwards, I forgot what it was like to not be a couple. This is why I don’t do feelings! I don’t really want to get into too many specifics, but I am finally finally (after a lot a lot of work) feeling like myself again and so that’s why I wanted to update my blog and see if I could actually finally write about this. This is what I learned though:

  1. Don’t romanticize people who hurt you. Don’t give credit to people like that because you will just paint them up as this great person in your head when in reality, they aren’t. They’re basically a scrub. You will be hurt and disappointed every time. You can’t hold onto the idea you have of someone when they aren’t that person at all in real life.
  2. You have to remember all the crappy times because that’s when people show you who they really are. Maybe you had a few “good times,” but you can’t hold onto those. The bad times are the real version of the person.
  3. Don’t put yourself “all in” a relationship if the person has baggage (I put up with way too much and I didn’t need that).  If you learn about said baggage early on and you’re not ok with it, it’s ok to walk away. In fact, you better walk away before getting too deep!
  4. You can’t build a relationship on secrets and lies. There has to be 100% honesty. (I was honest. He wasn’t.)
  5. If the person you are dating has a lot of baggage and work to do on their self, the relationship can’t be a priority for them. You will end up getting hurt because of this. Don’t go out of your way for someone or make them a priority when they can’t give you that time and energy in return.
  6. You can’t help someone if they won’t help themselves. You can’t fix people.
  7. Always listen to your mom or friends! Especially your mom. I really wished I listened to her now.
  8. Hey, if you see more red flags then China-RUN!!!!
  9. You have to be more cautious of people. Don’t be so open up front with your feelings because that’s when it’s hard to detach.
  10. Don’t make someone your everything or forget about yourself. It’s not like I forgot myself,but I put a lot of my time and energy into this relationship and when it blew up in my face at the end, that’s when I had a hard time.
  11. Do background checks haha for sure! I’m not crazy, but I’ve just been through a lot and so I probably would do a little more researching before hand or at least, get to know someone more before you can make a solid decision if they are someone you would want to actually be with. Hey, you got to have your own back. Don’t make a judgement on looks alone because that will only get you so far. You really have to be objective with it. Write down all their flaws versus all the things you like about them. If there are more flaws than positives, get out right away and don’t look back!
  12. When it crumbles, like they knew it would, your parents will be there for you to pick up the pieces. I’m so lucky to have the parents I have. They have really been with me through this rough patch. I love them so much.
  13. It’s hard to build a relationship with someone who has different goals than you (or no goals at all-haha) or is at a totally different place in life than you are. It’s just not going to work out, realistically.
  14. You have to realize the reality of who the person is and do NOT ignore all the signs that it isn’t right. Listen to your intuition early on. Do not YOLO. It’s bad advice and doesn’t work out. Be responsible. Basically being objective like I said earlier.
  15. A bad boy is just that–bad. They aren’t worth it. You just get your heart broke every time.
  16. Thank your lucky stars that you got out of it early enough and are no longer with a loser. Just remind yourself that and keep doing you and you’ll be good.
  17. People aren’t who they always say they are. Actions, for sure, show who people really are. Don’t believe everything someone says. They’re just words and empty promises in the end. The actions are who they really are.
  18. Don’t date somebody who you may see every day (I think you know what I mean). It just honestly never works out. That person could be fronting this persona and it’s just not even who they really are.
  19. When you’re always bringing someone up and encouraging them and they don’t do the same for you, get out of there. You don’t need that. If they are bringing you down, they can’t give you what you need.
  20. I said this before in my blog, but I never knew how hard life outside of college would be. Real life can hurt sometimes.
  21. Don’t try to get “closure.” It will just suck you back in and give  you hope of something that isn’t even there. Just be lucky it ended, even if it wasn’t how you wanted it. Like my Dad said, you’re just playing with fire. Boy, was he right. I definitely got burned. You got out and just be glad for that. If you try to get closure, you will most likely get hurt.
  22. Delete their number right away and get rid of everything that reminds them of you.  (I haven’t done this quite yet but need to) You don’t need the memories.
  23. You really are a lot stronger than you think. People kept saying that to me and I would roll my eyes, but now I feel like I’ve come so far and I’m like, “wow, they were right.”
  24. Basically thank them (the person who broke your heart) for nothing because there’s nothing left to lose. ha that’s a song, but it’s true. You can only go up afterwards! I wish I realized that sooner.
  25. Don’t dwell on the past. Move forward.
  26. Cut all contact with them. It can be harder though if you have a reason to see them everyday.
  27. Don’t give up on yourself.
  28. Guard your heart. Don’t be reckless with it. Don’t just give it away to anyone.
  29. If you can’t bring them home to your parents, it’s not a good sign.
  30. Focus on all the positives when it ends. Don’t focus on “what it could have been.” Really it’s just more romanticizing and it’s never going to be that way with all the issues.

I could probably think of more life lessons, but this is what I’ve got so far. I’ll show you what I wore today and then hopefully soon (not 5 months from now), I will share all the outfits I have from my last post last spring to my most recent ones.

I called this post “Clean” because it’s a Taylor Swift song. I had never heard of it but my good good friend, Paula, told me about it. It’s basically about feeling sad after a breakup and still having them “like a wine stain” on you for months and months and then finally, one day, you finally are “clean” of them. That’s where I feel like I mostly am now. It’s a beautiful song, a strong song, and I’m obsessed. Here’s the lyrics (which I don’t own or anything. Taylor gets all the cred-you know how Taylor can be with her music. Hey, I don’t blame her. When you work hard on something, you want to protect it. I just don’t want her coming after me, so I thought I’d make a little disclaimer.)


The drought was the very worst
When the flowers that we’d grown together died of thirst
It was months, and months of back and forth
You’re still all over me like a wine-stained dress I can’t wear anymoreHung my head as I lost the war, and the sky turned black like a perfect stormRain came pouring down when I was drowning
That’s when I could finally breathe
And by morning gone was any trace of you,
I think I am finally clean

There was nothing left to do
When the butterflies turned to dust that covered my whole room
So I punched a hole in the roof
Let the flood carry away all my pictures of you

The water filled my lungs, I screamed so loud but no one heard a thing

Rain came pouring down when I was drowning
That’s when I could finally breathe
And by morning, gone was any trace of you,
I think I am finally clean
I think I am finally clean
Said I think I am finally clean

10 months sober, I must admit
Just because you’re clean don’t mean you don’t miss it
10 months older, I won’t give in
Now that I’m clean I’m never gonna risk it

The drought was the very worst
When the flowers that we’d grown together died of thirst

Rain came pouring down when I was drowning
That’s when I could finally breathe
And by morning gone was any trace of you,
I think I am finally clean

Rain came pouring down when I was drowning
That’s when I could finally breathe
And by morning gone was any trace of you
I think I am finally clean
Finally clean
Think I’m finally clean
Think I’m finally clean

P showed me “Red” too and I really like it as well. In P’s words, red is “passionate and exciting but it’s also dangerous and reckless at the same time.” Isn’t that the truth.
Shirt: Goodwill
Pants: Girl’s section Target
Shoes: Nike via Goodwill (3 bucks!! they are like new. They have this squishy foam pad in them and feel like I’m walking on clouds.)

Ok, I’ll try to get that outfit catch up out soon!

Thank you so much for staying with me, if you’re still reading.

Spades forever!
Stay fabulous!

Happy Birthday Audrey!

Hello, hello headbandits!

Just a quick post, but I have to give a shout out to my girl, Audrey. I love her style, sophistication, and elegance.

I’m actually just sharing it from a year ago since I didn’t have much time tonight to make a new one. Click on the link though.

Happy Birthday to my Homegirl, Audrey Hepburn!.

But here’s the cool outfit I wore in honor of her:

Shirt: Macy’s
Pants: JCPenney
Flats: Payless (Kid’s Section)

audrey shirt

I was kind of disappointed that today’s Google Doodle wasn’t dedicated to Audrey like last year’s. Last year’s was so cool.

I will add this: 10 Things You Never Knew About Breakfast At Tiffany’s 

I’m still working on that outfit catch up post and will try to get it out soon too. Oh tonight is the Met Gala too. I’ve been looking at some coverage so maybe I can do a recap of that too. I love the Met Gala.

Spades forever!

Stay fabulous!

Fascinating Fascinators: Kentucky Derby Style

Hello, hello headbandits!

Sorry I fell off the blogasphere again. I was doing really well there for a while. I was doing it every Saturday. You know how life goes. It has its ups and downs. I haven’t felt much like blogging. I want to get back into it though. I’ve been keeping track of all my outfits. I haven’t done much instagramming lately but I have been snapping photos on my phone. I will definitely have to do a catch up post soon.

I wanted to try to do a quick post right now though because today is a day any hat, headband, hair accessory junkie would love to attend. It’s the Kentucky Derby! I don’t know a thing about horse racing but I’ve always wanted to go just to dress up and see all the dresses and the beautiful hats.

I think if I were to go to the derby, I would wear a fascinator. I’m more into that fascinator lifestyle than a crazy hat. I love a good hat but I think a fascinator still showcases the person. I wish I lived in Britain too. I wear fascinators or over sized headbands quite a bit and people don’t get it where I live.

Here are a few of my favorite fascinators. I think they would fit in well at the Kentucky Derby:


Lady Gaga in one of her music videos. I can’t remember what song this was now, but I remember when I first saw this, I died. (Ha ha! Now I remember. It was the song Telephone. Wow. So obvious.)  I collect vintage phones and I love the almost tiffany blue color. This would definitely make a statement at the Kentucky Derby. I think it’s very edgy and kitsch. I also really like when you take unconventional items and use them in a conventional way.

orange and pink fascinator

This gal’s fascinator right here is one of my very very favorites. Her name is Katherine Jenkins, apparently. I think she is some royal. This is actually from Royal Ascot Day 2013. I think that is Britain’s equivalent of the  Kentucky Derby. My favorite color is orange and I also really love pink. I think they are a very good combination together. I think the fascinator is very chic and sophisticated. It would be perfect at the Kentucky Derby

poppy fascinator

This was actually at Kate and William’s wedding, so she is definitely a royal. I love a flower headband, so I definitely would wear this. I love the orange color too;at least it looks orange-ish to me. It reminds me of poppies which are my favorite flowers. I think this is almost like a hat but a little more interesting. Definitely a fun choice for the Kentucky Derby.

lc kentucky derby

Lauren Conrad at the 2013 K-Derby. I actually really like how hers is a giant oversized headband. It’s very floral inspired. The only thing is for me, mine would have to be a color. I think it would have been really cool if it was a tiffany blue color. It would really pop against that nude color dress.

jennifer behr studded headband

Jennifer Behr studded turban headband. This is from a few years ago. I first heard of Jennifer Behr because Blair (Leighton Meester) on Gossip Girl used to wear a ton of her headbands. I know this isn’t really a traditional hat or fascinator and maybe not the traditional style for this kind of an event, but I still think it’s unique enough and loud enough to stand on its own and it might be the perfect choice for the edgy race girl.


Still want to make a statement but nothing too crazy?? How about this giant oversized bow headband from kate spade?? I think it came in black and a champagne color too. It was on but I’m not sure if they still have it. You can never go wrong with a bow! You know what they say, bows before bros! You could even add some tulle netting in the front to make it a little more fancy.

blair hat

You can’t do a Kentucky Derby post without mentioning Blair! She probably inspired me to get into headbands. I loved all the ones she wore on the show. I like this look because it reminds me of Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. That’s probably the inspiration since she loves Audrey so much (speaking of, it’s her birthday Monday!). This is a classic look for the derby.


Not traditional at all but a unique piece that would definitely make a statement. I’ve always wanted an antler headband. I think they are cool!

I know I’m missing a whole bunch on this list but this is all I could think of off the top of my head. I’ll have to do another post when I think of more favorite fascinators.

I also saw these tonight at Macy’s and thought they would be good Kentucky Derby Dresses. All 3 are Calvin Klein.

IMG_20150502_154925_edit picmix-50.867

I think that is going to about do it for me. I will try to get that outfit catch up out here pretty soon.

What would you want to wear to the Kentucky Derby??

Stay fabulous!

Hey guys!

I think blogging for me once a week is really working out. I’ve been doing it every Saturday and so far I’ve kept it up the past three weeks or so. I feel good. Hey, sometimes it’s the little things in life.

Let’s just get right into what I wore this week. It will be from Sunday March 15-Friday March 20,2015. My work week is Sunday-Thursday. Half the time I don’t even wear any real outfits on Friday or Saturday because I usually just lounge around. If I do go out Fri or Sat, I will share them.

After I created this collage, I realized all I wore this week was pink and green. Oh and polkadots. I always wear polkadots but I didn’t realize how often I do. It was 4/6 days that I did. I guess that’s why they call me Dot-haha! Kind of funny how that works out. It was St. Patrick’s Day Tuesday, as many of you know, so I guess I was just feeling the green most of the week.



Top Left: Sunday March 15, 2015
Top, Jacket: Old Navy but they are both thrifted
Jeggings: Fred Meyer
Boots:Hunter via Nordstrom Rack-Only 79.95. That’s really good because they retail anywhere from 120 and up.
Hat: Local Craft Fair. It’s one of my favorites. I wear it around the house a lot.

Top Middle: Monday March 16, 2015
Long Sleeve Shirt: JCPenney
Leggings,Flats: Target Kids
Skirt,Cardigan: Thrifted
Headband: (Who knew Goodwill had an auction site?? I find a lot of good stuff there)

Top Right: Tuesday March 17,2015-Happy St. Patrick’s Day
Dot shirt: Target
Green Jeans: Wet Seal
Fleece Leopard Cardigan (I got it for only a quarter!), Glitter Bracelet: Thrifted
Green Glitter Headband: Local craft show
Booties: Shopgoodwill

Bottom Left: Wednesday March 18,2015
Not the best outfit, but sometimes you want to be comfortable and not wear anything constricting. Not that my clothes are but I just wanted everything to be loose that day. Someone I worked with said, “St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday.” What a clown.
Pants: Macy’s
Sweatshirt,Boat Shoes: Thrifted

Bottom Middle: Thursday March 19,2015
Pants: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s
Minnie Tank: Target
Vans: Thrifted. I love these. I almost got them on ebay but then forgot about them and missed out on bidding or even winning them.
Long Sleeve Shirt: Forever 21. I actually use them a lot for layering in the colder months. They are cheap but really thin and I like how thin they are. Perfect thickness for layering like this. I have a white one too. I need to get some new ones. I almost wore both of them out.

Bottom Right: Friday March 20,2015
Dress: Forever 21
Cardigan: Old Navy
Leggings: JCPenney
Flats: Gap. I love these ones. Very bright color and I got them for only a dollar! Last year at the end of the season. I probably say that every time, but they were a great find. Real leather too.
Necklace: I’m wearing that bow one that I got at Shopko for a dollar. I don’t know if you can see it because it’s kind of small here. I’ve shared it in recent previous posts though. If you go back one, I show it up closer.

Well, that ought to do it for this week!

Outfits Of The Week: Sunday March 8-Thursday March 12, 2015

Hey guys!

Just a quick outfit post for you.

But wait, did you see this last week–The Zoolander 2 reveal at the end of the Valentino show? That’s kind of everything.

Hope you’ve been having a good week. The weather here has been unreal. On Tuesday, it was even a high at 70 degrees. I love, love it.

Let’s look at some of my accessories a little closer:

Top feft: That bow necklace I’ve been wearing a lot. I got it at Shopko for only one dollar! That’s how I do. Like I said in a previous post, it reads very kate spade.

Top middle: Gap flats next to a heart shaped piece of paper I found outside my work.

Top right: My kate spade “all wrapped up” bow ring and necklace. I wore this with Monday’s look. I want the earrings. I missed out on them on Nordstrom online a while ago. Keep kicking myself.

Bottom left: My Dorothy glitter Toms via kids section Nordstrom Rack. Got my Emerald city earrings via JCPenney. I had on a red glitter fabric headband too that I got at a craft store. The glitter bracelets are from Goodwill. The red and green read Emerald City and Dorothy shoes to me. I wore these with Tuesdays look.

Bottom middle: My friend did my nails for awards night to match my dress and cardigan. I think I’ve said this a lot, but tiffany blue and orange are my very favorite color combo!
tiffany blue polish: Essie Where’s My Chauffeur?
orange: Sally Hansen Full Salon Manicure Kook-A-Mango

Bottom right: Those are my accessories for awards night up a little closer.

Yesss! I feel good. I got my weekly post in. I’ve been on a roll. This feels like a  major accomplishment since I was so off the blog radar for 3 months. I don’t have any outfits for yesterday or today as I’ve mainly been scrubbing at home and relaxing.


Stay fabulous!


Spades forever!








Outfits In Review: Sunday March 1-Saturday March 7,2015

Hello,hello headbandits!

I’m trying to stay updated as much as possible so it’s not as hard on me and also I want to share my outfits with you all. I can’t promise I can blog every day, but I can at least aim for once a week.

This week has really felt like Spring. It’s 60s degrees now. The sun is shining and it feels so warm. I walked around downtown a little and went to some of my favorite shops. I love doing that when it gets nicer. This is the kind of weather I live for. Is it getting warm where you live?

Let’s just dive right in with the outfits. I did my best this week. My phone was acting up because I have too many photos. I transferred some over to my computer so now it should be good. Some of the outfits I couldn’t snap the day of, but I recreated them here for you.


Top left corner: Sunday March 1st,2015
Dress: Vintage
Necklace, fleece cardigan: Thrifted
Leggings: kate spade via TJ Maxx (they have a little gold spade down near the ends of one of the legs. They were only like 12.99 too.)
I wore my tiffany blue kate spade clasp bangle too, but it’s kind of hard to see.
The little tiffany blue belt just came off a pair of pajamas, oddly enough.

Top Middle: Monday March 2,1015
Dress: Gap-60% off. It was probably only 12 bucks or so.
Booties: Kohls
Sweater:Thrift Store
Leggings: Macy’s

Top Right: Tuesday March 3,2015
I was feeling a very Hipster vibe.
Chambray shirt, Vans: Thrifted
Hat: Forever 21
Pants: Macy’s

Bottom Left: Wednesday March 4,2015
This wasn’t the whole outfit. I was wearing boots (the ones that you will see in the next photo) and black pants, I think.
Feeling my 4th of July shirt. It’s my favorite holiday.
Long Sleeve Shirt: JCPenney

Bottom Middle: Thursday March 5, 2015
Boots: Chinese Laundrey via Famous Footwear Outlet. I wear these all the time. I love that camel color. It’s so luscious and they are real leather. To die.
Peplum Shirt: Gap Kids-it has pink polkadots on it too but kind of hard to see here.
Pink Long Sleeve: American Eagle
Jegging Jeans: Fred Meyer
Sweater (It has little pink roses on it): Thrifted

Bottom Right: Friday March 6,2015
Dot Sweater: It’s Forever 21 but I got it at Goodwill
Pants: Macy’s
Boots: Chinese Laundry
Hat: Forever 21
Faux Leather Moto Jacket (my fav lately): Plato’s Closet



Here are some of the details up closer and one more look.

Top left: Today Saturday March 7,2015
Pants: Macy’s
Shirts, Converse: Thrifted

Top Middle: The bracelet I’m wearing today. I love it. It reminds me of the J.Crew ones and the like. I got it at Hobby Lobby for 72 cents. You can’t beat it. I love all the colors.

Top Right: Here is just that rose sweater up closer. I hope you can see the detail better.

Bottom left: Here is the necklace and bracelet I wore a few times this week. That necklace reminds me of the kate spade skinny mini bow one, but I actually got it at Shopko for ONE DOLLAR! That’s how I shop. The bangle though is kate spade. I got it at the outlets two Thanksgivings ago. It was the day I worked there for a day. I actually just am now taking the tag off and have never worn it. I do that a lot with things in my closet. It has to be the right moment to wear it. Read about how I got to be a kate spade girl for a day here.

Bottom Middle: The ring I’ve been obsessed with lately. I got it two weeks ago at an antique store where I live. I love turquoise.

Bottom right: Back to today again. It’s just my shirt up closer. It’s sunny today so I wanted to wear my sunglasses shirt.

If you want to see anything up closer too, you should be able to click on the picture and it should get bigger in another window.


Here’s one more cool thing I forgot to share with you! I got my very first kate spade dress last week. I have to give a shout out to Jules at KateSpadeGirl for helping me. Check out her blog. I love her style and she has a ton of kate spade dresses, bags, etc. She really is a kate spade girl through and through. She knows a lot about those spades and even helped me pick the perfect size. See, where I live there are NO kate spade outlets. It’s very sad. The closet one to me is over 300 miles away and I only get to it when I visit my Grandma. Jules saw the dress and immediately thought of me. She let  me know and I called up the store and ordered it.  I love orange of course. And it was 50 perfect off and then an extra 20 perfect, so the dress was only 50 bucks before shipping and what not. That’s SO crazy for a kate spade dress. It’s the Gayle dress.

I’m really excited because I actually have a work event to go to next week and so I am going to wear it. I’m planning on accenting it with tiffany blue accessories. That’s my favorite color combination. The belt in the photo is kate spade too but I think for the night I’m wearing a polkadot one instead. Love those dots and stripes.

That’s kind of a funny picture. I took it late at night so my usual place was too dark to take the photo. It looks like I’m standing in the tub, but I’m not. It’s just how it’s cropped.






Ok! That was this week. Hopefully I can stay updated week by week.


Spades forever!


Stay fabulous!
