Thirfted Thursday: Striped on Striped

Forever 21 skirt {old $6.50} | Thirfted Jones New York blouse {$2} | Target booties {old $10} | Bag via Ebay | Bracelets handmade by me 

I must say as the day progressed into evening I regretted not wearing tights underneath the skirt. Besides such minor problems, today I realized that I can wear stripes with stripes. Isn't that a lightbulb moment? I'm usually not one to experiment with my clothes, but thats part of the reason for this blog...to get me out of my usual choice of attire...to dress however I wish...to simply be me. 

The ship is safer in the harbor, but it is not meant for that.

Sometimes you need a little mini getaway to chill out, to unwind, and take in the beauty of the Earth. To stop and notice the little things, because you only live once {yolo}.

Rustic

Green + brown are great colors to pair together, especially for Autumn. I'm ready for some apple picking or go to pumpkin patch, I've never been! 

I discovered the most amazing website, Rainymood.com. Its perfect to listen to in bed as you doze off to lala land.

Mix it Monday: Playful {Floral dress}

Target booties {old $9} | Dress via Tjmaxx {$10} | Loft sweater {old $10} | J.crew necklace via Ebay | Bag via Ebay


To continue my experiment with this {dress}, I decided to be a little more playful by wearing a sweater and turning the dress into a skirt. I literally put this sweater on, added the booties and called it a day. I think it turned out fab, but just be careful when its windy

What do you think of this look, share your thoughts.
Happy Monday and happy {officially} Fall!

Thirfted Thursday: Orange Blouse {Fall edition}

American Eagle jeans {old $20} | Thirfted Liz Claiborne blouse {$2} | H&M scarf {$10} | Forever 21 loafers {old $22} | Bag via Ebay 

Today marks the first of many Thirfted Thursday to come. I love shopping, but on a budget and thirfting is the perfect way to do it, in my opinion. I scored this Liz Claiborne blouse at a thirft shop that was having $20 bag day. Buy a bag for $20, and fill it with as many as clothes you can fit in. On its own the blouse was priced at $12, so the $20 bag deal was very good. Simply just google thrift shops in your area. You can do a little homework by calling and asking if they're having promotions/deals on certain days of the week. 

P.S. Here is recipe for a cauliflower pizza curst {enjoy pizza without the guilt}.

Mix it Monday: Preppy {Floral dress}

Zara heels {$20} | Dress via Tjmaxx {$10} | Forever 21 blouse {$15} 

 It started pouring as soon I stepped outside..so meet indoor pictures. Regardless, I love the preppy and feminine feel of this get up. I felt 'cute'. I am going to try to use this dress to create other looks, bear with me. In other news, I'm getting sick. Is anyone else? If your not feeling so hot, I hope you feel better in a jiffy.

I love to play on simplicity with a touch of glamour {add} heels, red lips {maybe} and accessories. I pilled on my 'wrist rings' that I have been making during my free time. If you would like to see my pieces or are interested in any of them, let me know!
