Radiant Orchid Dress + Starbucks Giveaway!


By now, you all probably know that Radiant Orchid was announced as the Pantone color of the year for 2014. I don't have anything in my wardrobe just yet in this pretty hue, but spring is the perfect time to incorporate the color into your wardrobe. I paired the Radiant Orchid dress with one of my favorite colors, cobalt, for some bold contrast. Add a lavender rhinestone bracelet and a pair of killer strappy sandals for your accessories.

Puggle Problems Solved with Scott Towels

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Scott Brand, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Scottvalue http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Oliver, my puggle, is almost four years old.



He might be all grown up, but he still acts like a puppy with all the energy he has. Oliver will go from zero to sixty if he sees the mailman, a squirrel, other dogs, people he knows, people he doesn't know, leaves blowing in the wind, or anything that confuses him (such as strollers and bicycles). Pretty much everything will excite him. You know, puggle problems.


Don't be fooled by this cute sleeping face. 

Sometimes Olls gets a little too excited barking out the window at another dog walking by or when his other favorite humans come over to visit. This causes him to have accidents in the house. So, I like to stock up on Scott Towels at Kmart. They help clean up his messes and save my hardwood floors from getting ruined.


Oliver's "I'm sorry, Mom" look. It's hard to stay mad at that face!

Spring Trend: Floral Print


Floral print is always big for Spring. It's nice when something that's a "trend" is also classic! I have a bunch of floral print in my wardrobe and it's great that I can wear those pieces again and again every season. But it's also fun to add some new stuff right? (like I need an excuse to go shopping, ha). I have my eye on a floral romper. It could be dressed up with a pair of heels for a date, or worn casually with a denim jacket and flats sandals for the weekend. If you want to add some florals to your closet without breaking the bank, both the flats and the skater skirt are both under $12!

What's your favorite way to wear florals?

Look What I Got: Target Tee Shirt Dress



Jacket-Old Navy (similar Merona Denim Jacket), Mossimo T Shirt Dress, Necklace-Luxe Craving (similar Arden B Necklace), Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers, Tote-c/o Massi

Last month I made an outfit collage featuring this t shirt dress from Target. This weekend I was finally able to wear it to run some errands while the weather was sunny and beautiful. (Yesterday I woke up to a dusting of snow. I don't want to talk about it!). The dress is super comfy and I love that it's a bit roomier on me for a relaxed, loose fit. The dress is $19.99 on Target's website, but I was able to get it 15% off thanks to the Cartwheel app

Coral Peplum + Q&A



Jacket-Target (similar Charlotte Russe Faux Leather Jacket), Top-Forever 21 (similar Liz Claiborne Peplum Top), Belt-Asos (similar Dorothy Perkins Leopard Belt for $9), Old Navy Jeans, Clutch-eBay (similar Winky Designs Sequin Clutch), Kensie Girl Metallic Flats

Last week I was tagged by Krysten of Why Girls Are Weird for a fun Q&A!

1. Why do you blog?

I blog because I absolutely love clothes and fashion! This blog is a nice little outlet for that passion. It also helps me to make the most of my wardrobe through remixing, as well as keep track of what I've already worn. I also continue to blog since it's been wonderful making so many new friends through it.

2. What's your favorite pastime?
I think it's obvious that shopping is my favorite pastime! (Shopping is a hobby, right?). I also love watching reality tv (Real Housewives, Millionaire Matchmaker, Teen Mom, The Bachelor...just to name a few).

3. Do you have any pets? If so, tell me about them!
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you already know I have two dogs. Oliver is a puggle and Jinx is a pit mix. They are my babies!

4. If you had the option of going to the desert, ocean, or mountains, which would you choose hands down and what time of year? 
Since I live at the Jersey Shore, it would have to be the ocean! I love going to the beach in the summer, but I also enjoy how quiet and peaceful it is here in the spring before all the Bennies (aka tourists) come.
 
5. Is blogging your full time gig? If not, what is? 
I'd love to blog full time one day, but for now it's just my second "job". I'm a social worker working with the elderly population. I don't talk much about my job on the blog for confidentiality reasons!
 
6. Sweet or savory?
Definitely sweet! Give me chocolate anything and I'm a happy girl. (preferably a Hershey's chocolate bar with almonds, thanks).

7. Where did you grow up? 
I grew up in central NJ, about 45 minutes north of where I live now.
 
8. What is or would be number one on your bucket list?
I dream of opening my own clothing store one day, even if it's just an online boutique. 

9. What kind of music do you normally listen to?
Pop!

10. Bright colors or neutral tones?
This one is hard to chose because I like to wear both! But in the spring/summer months, I definitely gravitate towards brighter colors after the dreary winter.

11. Tell us one thing about yourself your readers don't already know.
I'd much rather text/email than talk on the phone. If someone calls and I don't recognize the number, I definitely won't pick up!
 
I'm tagging anyone that wants to do the Q&A post!

Look For Less: Jessica Alba MTV Movie Awards

I only saw a tiny bit of the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night, but I absolutely loved Jessica Alba's look. 


She wore a white crop top, high waisted lime skirt, printed pumps, and a textured clutch. So cute, right? (and it helps that her skin is a gorgeous bronze!). I decided to recreate the look for less...


Jessica is wearing it on the red carpet, but I think this outfit would be perfect for a summer date night! I know the crop top wouldn't work for everyone, so you could also swap it out for a sleeveless white top.

Mix It Mondays: Navy Dress



Dress-c/o Oakleigh Rose (sold out, similar Asos Navy Skater Dress), Scarf-c/o FRAAS (similar Alloy Watercolor Scarf for $16), Bag-H&M, Flats-Gap Kids (similar Sam & Libby Bow Flats)

This weekend it finally felt like Spring! Saturday was sunny and around 70 degrees, so glorious. We took the dogs for a very long walk around the neighborhood for some much needed exercise. (poor Oliver is a bit on the chubby side after this winter!). Then we went to Starbucks and sat outside with our coffees, just soaking up the sun. 

Today I'm remixing my navy dress by pairing it with a watercolor scarf (I know it looks crooked in the photo, thanks to the wind!). This is how I last wore the dress in the winter:
