Day 19: Adorn Your Head

I have been DYING for an excuse to wear this hat!
I seriously thought I would have to wait to wear it 
until I went to the beach next summer, 
or until I made it to the
  Kentucky Derby! (on my bucket list)
but lucky for me, this challenge came along!
Of course Jess and I got out of hand like we always do,
and we did our own little photo shoot

As if you can't tell from the pics...we had a blast like always!
  Love you Jess! =)

Day 18: Statement Jewelry

Considering I'm known for my 
obsession with loud/unique jewelry, 
I think I make a statement with my jewelry every day =) 
However, there is a pair of earrings that even 
I haven't been able to bring myself to wear yet...
they are HUGE! 
At least I finally I have an excuse to wear them!
 Once again Jess and I went out on a photo shoot adventure!

Thanks for another fun night Jess =)

Day 17: Repair and Wear

Dress: Kohl's; Cami: Rue 21; Leggings: Forever 21
Belt: Forever 21; Accessories: All over =)
Repair Item: Zipper on Dress

I bought this dress right before 
I went on my fabulous vacation to California. 
I love this dress!
I was so excited to come back and wear it to work, 
so as soon as I got home from Cali
I threw it in the wash.
When I took it out of the wash and hung it to dry, 
I tried zipping the dress up on the hanger...
and the zipper broke. 
I was so mad!
As soon as I read the prompt for this challenge 
I knew what I would repair...
Fortunately for me I have a lot of talented friends, 
and my friend Christine said she would help me fix the zipper
...and Voila! 
I have my cute dress back! 
Of course my favorite thing about this dress is 
that I can dress it up with any of my accessories =) 
I love my turquoise pieces, 
and don't have a lot of things to wear them with
...so I was happy to get this dress back into my wardrobe.

 Thank you so much for all your help Christine! 
I freaking love you girlfriend =)


Day 16: Menswear

Top: Gap; Skirt: ; Tank: DownEast
Tie: Thrifted; Suspenders: Thrifted; Accessories: All over =)
So to say the least life has been crazy/hard
and therefore 
I completely dropped the ball on blogging...
However, I'm picking myself up, dusting myself off,
and getting back to living life!
So here we go =)*
Even though I haven't been posting pics for the challenge, 
I have been taking pics and I did finish the challenge...
so little by little I'll get the pics up =)
I could not have had more fun with today's challenge. 
I've always wanted to wear something like this, 
but have never had the guts. 
At first I wasn't going to wear the tie and suspenders to work because I was so self conscious, 
but then I got to thinking...why not? You only live once!
...So I wore them.
It was pretty funny because I had to have one of the guys in my department tie the tie for me-
being single, I didn't know how to do it =)  
The guys were all very opinionated about my outfit 
which I thought was hilarious-they are all so cute!
Kristen and I took the pics outside at work...
and we had a blast! She was making me laugh so freaking hard! 
I actually think I will be rocking a tie again pretty soon...
it definitely added a little sass 
to a safe outfit =)

Day 15: Hair-Try Something New

Today's challenge was a lot of fun!
I use to try new things with my hair everyday in high school
...but lately I feel like I've been in a rut. 
So...I work with tons of girls who have cute hair everyday. 
I was surprised to find out that a couple of girls at work curl their hair with a straightner-I've tried this a couple of times and my hair always turns out looking like a mess! 
I ended up bringing my straightner to work and had one of the girls show me how it's done!...I went home and tried it out and it ended up being easier than I thought it would be! 
It ended up looking similar to when I use a curling iron, but it was something new and fun to try! 
I can't wait to start playing around with it more!
So I am beyond blessed to work at OrangeSoda. It has literally been one of the biggest blessings of my whole life. 
I am surrounded everyday by my best friends, and people that make me SO happy!
One of these people is my fabulous, gorgeous, smart, hilarious and ambitious boss Melissa. 
Seriously I couldn't ask for a better boss/friend! It has been an amazing experience working with her. 
She always has my back, and is always looking out for my best interest. I have learned so much from her, she is such an amazing example! 

Melissa does an incredible job at making her employees feel appreciated. For instance, on National Receptionist Day, she surprised me with a HUGE sign for my desk, a precious card, and a gift card to Old Navy. 
I still can't believe how thoughtful she was. 
I finally hit up Old Navy to spend my gift card and ended up finding the pictured green dress...
I seriously worship this dress!
It is absolutely the most comfortable dress I've ever owned, and not to mention the top is absolutely fabulous. I love how original and soft the fabric it is as well =)
Anyway...Thank you so much Melissa! 
I freaking love you girlfriend! 

Day 14: Copy Someone Else


Today I decided to try and copy the one and only Kim Kardashian. 
I love the Kardashians! 
I love that they represent girls with curves...
since I am obviously a girl with curves =)

So I know I will never look like a Kardashian...
but this was my attempt!

Day 13: Neutral with a POP!

Top: Ross; Skirt: Macy's
Heels: Pulse; Accessories: All over =)

The second I read about this challenge, 
I knew exactly what I would wear...
anything to break out my fave heels! =)

...Seriously I'm obsessed! 

Today was another perfect day at the pool,
(even though I got fried...
luckily it'll turn into a tan by tomorrow)
then Jess and I decided to go to the 
park to take pics for today's challenge. 
 Like always, we had a blast!

I don't know if it's because I worked 
at Victoria's Secret for 3 years...but I freaking love
black and pink!
They are definitely my fave colors...
I love how sassy they look when they are combined!


Today's challenge was a lot of fun!
I love wearing a neutral and then 
splashing it with color
(color of course = accessories)
Have I mentioned how much I worship these heels???

...Just sayin... =)
