#26 of the 30×30 Challenge

If you can’t tell, I was rather grumpy during this photo shoot. Haha I felt very comfy in my easy-breezy top, and very glam in my glitzy skirt. Best of both worlds.

Short and sweet. My favorite kind of post. Have a fabulous Thursday!!





The Dress of Many Colors

Dress: INC/Macy’s (I found several on eBay here & here | Belt: Old | Shoes: Shoe Carnival


I love this dress. Back in December, Victor & I were able to take a mini survey trip here to Puerto Rico with the company he is now working for. When I found out I was invited, I somewhat freaked out, because all of my summer/island-wear was packed in boxes, stored in a garage, 12 hours away. I also new there was a slim chance that a Chicagoland mall would have much summer clothes left on their racks in the dead of winter. That’s when this dress hopped off the rack and into my closet, for around $15.

INC (from Macy’s) is one of my favorite companies. Their clothes are unique, well made, and decently priced. Oh, and they fit my tiny self. Here are a few pieces from their summer collection that I might have on my i want list:

Rose Gold & Lace

Top: Carsons | Blazer: Kohls | Pants: Aerie | Shoes: Kohls | Earrings: Macy’s | Watch: Fossil

Outfit number 2 of my 30×30 challenge!!

I am fascinated by rose gold. My wedding had touches of it all over, including the halo around the diamond on my wedding ring. Not only was this top on clearance a few months back, but it had the coolest design with some rose gold studs. I didn’t have to think twice. Now, let’s talk about lace. In my opinion, it is classic and there’s no way to go wrong with lace. It screams elegance and sophistication. This is one of my favorite pieces of clothing, you will most likely see it plenty over the next 28 outfits. {If you would have told me at age 16 that I would wear lace on my wedding day, I would have flipped. I even covered my programs in lace with a sewing machine…}

I had other shoes that would have looked better, but they weren’t including in my challenge… I figured, you can’t go wrong with some animal print to complete an outfit. So, there you go: 2 down, 28 to go!



I heart lace.

I’m not sure I’ve mentioned my love & adoration for lace yet. But, I LOVE LACE! {there, I said it}

I’ve been noticing lots of uniquely styled t-shirts out there. So, how about a little DIY. Nothing a little scissors & a zig-zag stitch couldn’t handle. I also added the scalloped edges to the bottom of my shirt.t-shirt {OldNavy & DIY}, skirt {Macy’s INC}, shoes {Belk Jessica Simpson}, purse {Coach Outlet}

A new t-shirt = a new outfit. Woohoo! :)
