Skulls Again

I didn't realize until I was doing this post that I have worn skulls two days in a row. Of course that isn't hard when the vast majority of my closet contains skulls.

It was super super windy this day. The winds got up to like 65 miles an hour. Luckily while we were on our walk it wasn't that bad. I wanted to be super casual but still wanted to stay warm. This cardigan is the perfect mix of warm but cool. I wasn't sweating to death by the end of our walk. I love the length and the color. It is one of my favorites!

Skulls and Sweaters

I just got my eyelashes done when we took these pics so I had zero makeup on. The sunglasses were not coming off :).

This outfit is perfect for comfort. I know I say this over and over. But that is what I look for in an outfit. Aria wanted to be in the pictures. So I had to bring her in. I sure love this little girl. I cannot stand how cute she is. Little stinker will not keep her shoes on. I try and try  to keep her feet in shoes but she just wont have it :)

Building a wardrobe

Now I did a post a while back on building a professional wardrobe. This post is just your basic everyday wardrobe. These are key pieces that you can mix and match and restyle with different accessories. I have added items for every price range. So you will find some pricey items and some more affordable items in each category. Just remember some key pieces are worth splurging for because in the end you get more for your money. Especially a good coat. You want a quality warm coat.

Little Black Dress:

It is important for every female to own a little black dress. It can be used for business, date nights, parties and so many events. You can style your LBD in so many different ways.


Jeans:

I know everyone on the planet has a pair of jeans. It is a wardrobe must. They can be good for running errands, dates, going out. A word of advice if you find a good pair you love buy mulitples! The worst thing is having your favorite pair wear out and you can't find them again.


Button Down Shirt:

These are great for dressing up a good pair of jeans. They are also essential if you work in the professional world. A nice white one is the most versatile. You can pair it with any color of vest, blazer, jacket, pant.

Skirt:

Skirts are nice to have for the hot summers. I know they saved my life last summer. They are cute and flirty. I love them for date nights with the hubby. They can be paired with a cute heel, or if you have skill they can even look cute with some good tennis shoes.

Boots:

Boots are great to have around. Perfect for the fall/ winter months. Keep your feet dry and warm as well as stylish. I love a good riding boot over skinny jeans and a loose comfy sweater. That is my go to outfit in the cold.

White/ Black Tee's:

These are a great versatile way to change up your outfits. Jeans and a white tee with a layered necklace on day. Black tee, jeans and heels the next. They are great pieces to have for everyday. You can get fitted tee's or if you are like me I like them to be a little looser so I can tuck them in and have them drape out.

Black Heels:

These pumps can go with any outfit. If you are on a budget and can't afford a million heels in every color start with neutrals. Black being the most versatile.

Blazer:

I love blazers. If I could afford it I would have one in every color. A nice black or white one can take you further. Blazers can be paired with skirts, pants, jeans, leggings. They go with everything.

Coat:

Now this is the one you want to invest in. A nice warm coat. Buying a cheap coat will really be a waste of money. If it doesn't keep you warm it is pointless to have.  It's almost as pointless as wearing socks with sandals. You can sometimes find a good quality coat for cheap. I got one from forever 21 a few years back that is super warm and super cute.

Distressed

I have been shopping American Eagle non stop. I am in love with their jeans. They fit perfectly they are comfortable and I just love how they look. I try to buy two of each style I like just so I have a backup in case one pair gets worn out. Nothing sucks worse than when you find the perfect pair of jeans and they get worn out and you go back to buy them and they are no longer available.

I also have been obsessed with Poppy and Dot. Their instagram feed is full of awesome daily deals. I got this shirt during one of their sales. It is so soft and so cute. I love that I will be able to style it this summer with all different types of jeans, and skinnies.

I still haven't passed my kidney stone. It has been brutal but Aria helps keep my spirits up. I swear she has some kind of healing power. Because as crappy as I feel I hold or play with her and it doesn't seem bad at all.

Hope you all have a great week!!

Fun Florals

Yes another floral post. It's spring!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Sorry for the delayed post. I was in the hospital yesterday but I am back blogging.

I love body con dresses. Especially with a cute cardigan or kimono. And these wedge booties are to die for. I could honestly have them in every color. They are so fun do dress up. I love how cool and comfortable they are. You can style them with shorts, skirts, skinny jeans, trouser jeans, just about anything!

Braids

OK I never like wearing my hair up. But I had to do something quick with my hair and be out the door. This hair style literally took me 6 minutes. It was so simple. I still like wearing my hair down though. I have a really really round face and I think pulling it up emphasizes the roundness. Just saying.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. However you celebrate it. I adore Easter. I love the meaning, the family getting together. It is one of my favorites. This outfit is another good Easter outfit. Pairing a blouse with a nice kimono. I honestly don't thing one can have enough kimonos. I need more in my collection.

How do you like to style Kimonos?

Easter Outfit #3

Let me start off by saying sorry for the repetitive backgrounds lately. Aria has been sick so I have not been able to leave my house. So I apologize. It will change soon I hope.

So this outfit is another great Easter BBQ outfit. Of course I won't be able to run around and gather eggs with Aria in these shoes, but switch them out for some sandals and your good to go. Speaking of shoes I am in love with these wedges. I got them at an awesome discount and I love wearing them. They are comfortable and make me super tall. They go perfectly with this geometric top. I wore this top while preggers. It is a little big now, but nothing a belt can't fix. I love mixing colors and textures for spring.

Are you a sandal fan or a wedges fan?
