My Obsession With Coral

2 May

It all started last summer when I attended a Premier Designs  jewlrey party hosted by my friend Liz. After much deliberation I decided on a three strand coral bead necklace and matching earrings.

The love of my life

(Via eBay) <–I def paid more than that for mine! 😦

From then on I was hooked! Later that summer, the Kate Spade bag I had been eying all spring was on clearance so I snatched it up !

So since I jumped on the coral bandwagon LAST summer, I like to think of myself as one of the original coral treandsetters since it is EVERYWHERE now! 🙂

I realized that I have accidently worn some kind of coral accent every day this week!  Should I keep the trend going??

 

First Fashion Friday

23 Mar

Ok – so if there was an award for “Worst Blogger of the Year”,  pretty sure I would win it.  I am already setting my April goals (I know it is still March!), and blogging more frequently is going to be on the list!  To encourage this I have a few things planned…one of which is Fashion Friday!  The past few months, I have been OBSESSED with Pinterest.  I have eased up a bit, but I currently have over 2000, random things “pinned”.  Some of my favorite things to “pin” are outfits.  I love when I see an outfit combo that I can easily copy with items I already own.  Jackpot!!  The other night, I was on a pinning binge and discovered the following outfit:

It first struck my eye because of the coral…I am in love.  As I looked closer, I realized I had almost the exact outfit!  I quickly pinned this outfit and planned to re-create it one day in the near future.  That day ended up being today!  It was pretty cool this morning so I thought it would be perfect weather for some layers.

 

Blazer – Forever 21

Jeggings- Rich and Skinny via ideeli.com

Shirt – Kohls, literally the shirt off my dear cousin Julie’s back one day after she decided she wasn’t a fan of it anymore

Cheetah flats – Target closer look:

Pretty close huh?  I was a little unsure about the cheetah flats, but I went with it.  I got a lot of compliments at the office.  unfortunately, the crazy Texas weather decided to get warmer throughout the day (not mad about that!), so when quitting time rolled around it was H-O-T!  I couldn’t wait to change!!!

Have a great Friday!
