OOTD: Addicted To Accessories

 

Hurry, Hurry! It’s the last day to enter to win the Sutton necklace!

Good morning and happy Friday ladies! In honor of my very first giveaway (which is ending TODAY!!!), this week’s Addicted To Accessories is devoted to Stella & Dot’s Sutton necklace! With five different ways to wear it, the Sutton is extremely versatile and can be paired with almost anything! I know it isn’t Thursday like usual for our accessories OOTD, but this has been a crazy week so I haven’t been the best about posting for y’all (as I’m sure you’ve noticed…), I’m so sorry though! I am going to work on that for ya this week… Promise!

 

It can be dressed down with jeans and a casual top for a night out. or it can be dressed up with a nice blouse and a skirt for a day of work (or if you’re anything like me, an interview!).  I just got mine a few weeks ago and I have worn it a ton of times already! Last week alone I wore it twice for two totally different types of occasions! One day I wore it with a professional outfit for a job fair, and then I also wore it with jeans a tank top and a cardigan for a day of class.  And let me tell ya, both times I got a ton of compliments! Someone who was recruiting at the career fair even complimented it and asked if it was Stella & Dot, going on to explain how much she loved all of their stuff (if that isn’t a conversation starter, I don’t know what is!).  But, because it is so versatile, I have put together a few different looks and things to pair this awesome necklace with so you have an idea of just how many different ways there are to wear it!

OOTD: Motivational Monday

 

 

Good morning beauty queens!

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day weekend, and you survived the mounds of snow that were dumped on us (well, if you had any snow, that is…)! But this week’s Motivational Monday is perfect because this dress is so versatile! It is super professional when paired with a blazer (like it is here!), or you could ditch the blazer add some higher pumps (with a little bit of a platform maybe?) and some awesome jewels, and you’ve got the perfect date night outfit or even an awesome ensemble for a night on the town!

Outfit Of The Day - Motivational Monday

 

Dress: Brunello Cucinello (Stylebop), $1,275; Blazer: H&M, $25; Shoes: Jimmy Choo, $750; Bag: Tory Burch, $495; Watch: Marc Jacobs, $175; Ring: Coach, $78; Earrings: Kate Spade New York, $68

If that isn’t classy, I don’t know what is… I hope this awesome outfit inspires you as much as it did me this morning! And remember, there are so many pieces that you can buy that are perfectly professional when you pair them with the right things, and also super fun and apropriate for a night out when you change up the accessories! It’s all about versatility, ladies. I know a lot of us can’t always justify spending tons of money on certain items, but when you think about it, if what you’re buying is versatile, you’re getting way more than one outfit or look out of it and the item you’re buying is pretty much guaranteed to be way better quality than the cheaper alternatives you would be looking at!  But anyway, that’s enough of my preaching for one day… I hope you all have an amazing day and you get your week started out right!

What is your favorite article of clothing that you can wear for many different occasions?! Let me know in the comments below!

P.S. – If you haven’t entered my Stella & Dot giveaway yet, what are you waiting for?! Every day you wait is costing you more and more chances to win! Don’t put it off any longer… It’s super easy and quick to enter, so do it now! :)

OOTD: Workout Wednesday

 

Good Morning ladies…

Happy hump day! It’s finally Wednesday so naturally it’s time for this week’s Workout Wednesday! I don’t know about you, but lately I have fallen off the wagon with my New Year’s resolution of going to the gym more often…  I got really sick a few weeks ago and then I was just so busy with school work and stuff last week that it definitely was not my priority. But, there’s no time like the present, so it’s time for me to get back to the gym and into my routine and you can do it too! I know that personally, I feel so much better when I go to the gym everyday (or at least regularly…), and while I know that is not possible in everyone’s busy schedule, you should really make the effort to do some type of physical activity (even if it is a Pinterest workout! Those babies kick my butt sometimes!) not for your appearance but  for your health.  Even if you love the way you look (which you should… you’re all flawless!) it helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle and helps you live longer when you exercise regularly! So, now that I just rambled and lectured you poor ladies, here is this week’s Workout Wednesday (finally!)…

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday

 

Tank Top: Etsy, $23; Sweatshirt: American Eagle Outfitters, $20; Pants: Rubber Doll (Lord and Taylor), $24; Shoes: Nike (Zappos), $65

I know I’ve told you guys about a million times that workout clothes are my favorite and often times they are what motivate me to go to the gym, but I am going to tell you a million and one… It really is something that makes me what to workout! Why wouldn’t I want to wear gym clothes to class?! If I am going to the gym right after I can (and do…), so it is one of the best ways to get myself to go! If you haven’t tried this out yet, I highly recommend it! If you have errands to run or something to do before you workout, put your workout clothes on before you do it and see how much more motivation you have to stop by the gym before you go home… After all, you do have to pass by don’t you?! I hope you ladies have a wonderful day and don’t forget to hit the gym! You’ll feel so much better once it’s over!

Happy Tuesday Beautiful!

Good morning gorgeous! I hope your morning is going well so far and your day is starting out fabulously! Today we have a little pop of color in our Trendy Tuesday!

How is that for some color?! I absolutely love this look, so I just need to make myself buy more things like these (which, knowing me, shouldn’t be a problem!).  Speaking of color… Diane von Furstenberg‘s line that debuted on Sunday at NYFW is full of color and amazing patterns and it is absolutely amazing!

OOTD: Workout Wednesday

 

Good morning gorgeous!

Happy Wednesday lovelies! It has been brought to my attention that many of my Workout Wednesday outfits are better for people who go to the gym or who are having warmer weather, but not all of y’all always workout at the gym… So, this week’s Workout Wednesday is the perfect outfit for a nice jog or walk outside! With thermal leggings as well as a warmer Under Armour top with a super cute and cozy vest from The North Face! What better ensemble to rock when going for a run in the outdoors?! I give all of you ladies so much credit for running outside… I am too big of a baby to brave the cold and exercise outside during the winter months! More power to ya, gorgeous!

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday

 

Top: Under Armour Sonic Long Sleeve Top – dickssportinggoods.com, $30

Vest: The North Face Aconcangua Vest – dickssportinggoods.com, $99 

Pants: Addidas Ultimate Leggings – addidas.com$55 $44 (ON SALE NOW!)

Shoes: Nike Flex Running Shoes – sportsdirect.com, $73

Is this workout outfit awesome or what?! And talk about warm… I have that vest and, let me tell ya, it may not look like it would be the warmest, but it is quite toasty! So, with this ensemble and your favorite playlist on your iPod you’re ready to go… Hit the streets and get your run of the day in! You go skinny!
